Pittsburgh was r»led the top team by -13 of 53 experts contributing to the latest consensus. Two others bracketed the FunlherR with either California or Fordlmm or both. These thrM, with Alabama's Crimson Tide, held their places for (he vecon/J straight week in the poll, featured otherwise by higher rulings for Yale and Minnesota and the rlurn of Louisiana Stnte to the "top ten" for the first time in a month. Here's the tabulation, with points countd on a 10-9-8-7-6-5-1-3-2-1 bnsis: First ten: Points 1. Pittsburgh (•!.') first places. tics for first) 517'*j 2.

Texas Christian and Duke 8 each, Baylor and Arkansas 7 each, U. of Washington 5, Texas) A. and M. 4, Cornell 3, Tulsa and Lafayette 2 each. The poll revealed Duke us the victim of last Saturday's biggest upset. The Blue Devils were knocked out of th first ten as well as the Southern Conference leadership by North Carolina's uprising. This made room for the return to upper gridiron society of LSU, victor over Auburn's powerhouse and beaten this season only by Vanderbilt. The northeast retained the balance of Kridiron power, with five of its teams remaining in the first ten. Yale, replacing Dartmouth as the highest ranked ''Ivy League" entry, winds up its season against Harvard this Saturday in what promises 'to be a sensational duel of traditional rivals.

Here Are Grid Officials' Duties In case you've wondered what the four gentlemen in white knickers do on a football field, here's your answer: The referee is sole authority for the score. He is in charj'e (if progress of the ball. The umpire is in charge of players' deportment. He assists the referee in decisions involving possession of the bull, and interference in connection with catching and securing of bull advanced beyond the line of scrimmage. The field judffo times the game. He is in charge of all forward passes and kick*, lie follows the ball rollimj over the goaMine or outside, watches for deep inte'rferlnce. The head linesman watches for offside, play, fouls on ends going down under kicks, and tripping after a pass. He marks the position of the ball after each down. Louisiana State Coach Suggests All Officials Be Let in on Trick Plays Suggests Referee Explain Them to Thfee Other Officials Before Game So They May Assist in Determining Whether They Are Legal Ry HARRY GRAYSON Sports Editor. NEA Service T3ernie Moore of Louisiana State wonders if a team should be permitted to use plays the mechanics of which require explaining to officials before a game, "If such play.s are used," asks the coach of the Tigers, "should the referee explain them to the other three officials before a game so that they may assist him in determining whether they arc legal?" Moore wants it emphatically understood that he is not discussing the legality of Vandrbilt's widely discussed and crazyquilt hidden ball ttrick, which went for 5(i yards to beat Louisiana State. He is leaving that to the rules committee, or to any other body which may be in charge of such matters, but there are certain points about trick play.s which he believes .should be cleared up. Vanderbilt's unusual piece of deception was well set up by its quarterback, Reinschmidt, who had taken the ball from center on one or two previous occasions and made nice gains around Louisiana State's right end. 'Reinschmidt then deftly took the ball from center.- placed it on the ground bctwcn the legs of Hays, a guard, and faked out to the left as if he had the ball. Rickotswi.; n tackle, dropped back and fell on the ground as though he were down. Then, with the Tigers' defcn.se, sucked to the right, Ricketson got up slowly, picked up the ball, and ran to a touchdown behind three other linemen. Moore Opposed tn Hiding Ball in Linemen's Less As to the worth of trick plays, Moore does not believe that he is thoroughly competent to judge because he never has gone in for them. L. S. U. plays all of its early home games at night, and usually there is dew which makes extra ball handling hazardous. The top Tiger therefore chooses to devote all his varsity's time and energy to hard blocking and running. His squads stick very closely to sound and fundamental running plays. "There are a lot of very fine hidden ball plays by clever spinner backs and ball handler!; which may be classed as trick maneurvcrs and which under normal conditions may be worked to WAIT A MINUTE, BUDDY! great advantage," explains Moore. However. Louisiana State's head man definitely is opposed to hiding the ball in or around the legs of linemen and having other linemen come out, pick it up. and run with it. In view of what happened in the Vanderbilt battle, Moore scarcely can bo blamed for that, although he can't «et away from the fact that such plays occasionally pay dividends. No Easy Way to Win Tough Football Games "There is no easy way to win tough football games, and players may be led In believe that there is," he points out. "The only way I've been able to win the majority of my games is by superior blocking and running and coordinating a running attack with good sound passing game." Moore wants to know if there is any record of. two regular guards o! the same club scoring touchdowns ii the same engagement. BIythe Clark and John Hugh Smith, L. S. U.'s first-string guards, scored touchdowns in the third quarter of the Tiger;;' 41-0 rout of Mississippi State. Clark picked up a punt which had been blocked by Larry King, right end, anrl scampered six yards for a touchdown. Smith recovered a Mississippi State fumble in the air and raced 25 yards to score. Everything is happenning to Louisiana State this season, which is quite ;.ll Hunt with Bernic Moore—as long as the' opposition quits hiding the ball in or around the legs of linemen and having other linemen come out, pick it up, and run with it. That's carrying things a bit too far. Kilgrow Shines in Alabama Backf ield Recently Voted Keenest Football Student on . the Squad By the Associated Press Joe Kilgrom, Alabama's one-man biu-kfield, has taken on a few additional chores this fall. In 193(1 Kilgrow did a lot of the running, about half of th passing, kicked poini.s after touchdowns, was handy on blocking assignments, backed up the line on defense and punted when there was no one else on hand to do that job. Joe this year has been directing the 'Bama attack with considerable success. Shifted from right to left halfback, ho has been doing more ball- currying. This appears to be a lot of work fur one man to do. Joes does not mind the multiplicity of his activities provided he yets his full quota of sleep. The 'Bama "Jack of all football trades" likes to sleep from 12 hours on up. Recently, the team voted Kilgrow the coolest player and the keenest student of football on the squad. Hi.s coolness has kept the Crimson Tick' attack clicking all season. The slender,, dark-haired lad has always been a steadying factor. Juc- packs only 174 pounds, but has a powerful leg drive and runs the 100- yard dash in 10 seconds. He is quiel and unassuming. He like to relax with u good detective story. —Pup Badgers Win Over Buckner, Falcon Bodcaw High School Wins Three of Four Games Played By CLIFTON BURNS BODCAW. Ark. — Bodcaw High :hool Badgers laid away three more victories Friday night in n four-game clash with Buckner and Falcon High School basketball teams. The junior and .senior boys played Buckner, and the B team boys and the girls played Falcon. The senior game got off to a flying start when Bailey for the Badgers started the scoring. Parker for Buckner scored a moment later. There was bitter struggle in the opening minutes, but the Badgers easily won by a score of 32 to 15. J. Butler look the Badgers high point honors by scoring 23 points. Parker and Reeves shared Buckler's honors by scoring G points each. Bodcaw juniors took' an easy victory from the Buckner youths. Reaves led th charge by scoring 10 points for Bodcnw. The B team game was the only real thriller of the evening. The scoring was slow to start due to the splendid playing of the guards on each team. In the ha-cl fight of the first' half Falcon took the lead by a score of 10-5. Bodcaw started a rally in the last quarter. The crowd Was rearing when the score became tied in one list minute, but unlucky for Bodcaw. Falcon slipped .-mothe?- bngger through winning 12-10. Hendrix of Falcon and Butler for Bodcaw scored 6 points each. Bodcaw girls staged a comeback in the basketball world by taking the lead over Falcon girls as decidedly as Ross- lo ndid over Bodcaw a week ago. Mattison lead for Bodcaw while Butler followed UP the lead to establish the winning score of 22-8. Butler scored 14 pomls for Bodcaw McKnmie and A. McKamie of Falcon scored 4 points each.

As Good as on the 50-Yard Line LINCOLN, Neb.—(NEA>—Football appreciation in a new form was received by John K. Selleck, business manager of athletics at Nebraska. It came in the form of a check for $2.50 from a fan who enjoyed the radio account of the Nebraska-Indiana game so much that he thought it worth the actual price of a ticket. Jack Reams Is on His WayBack Up Former Manager of Derti jj* sey Went Broke—But is Staging Comeback " DETROIT.-Wj-John Leo Mcrtefh- an is doing well again, thank you. Better known as Jack Kearns, the man who made and tossed awny a Cool two million while managing Jack Dompsey and Mickey Walker, is earning a good income as a boxing promoter here. Less than a year ago, Kearns eam6 to Detroit flat broke after 35 years in the fight game. The boxing business in Detroit was almost as flat as Kearns was. Several "angels" who had tried to revive it had only had experience and thin wallets for their efforts. Perhaps in was improvement in business conditions or the Kearns magic touch that helped the late Tex Riekard, to create the millon-dollar gate, but Kearns succeeded where others had failed. Kearns produced 16 shows during his first 10 months in Detroit, Not one was a laser at the box office. The aging Maxie Rosenblootn has been his No. 1 attraction. Against Rcscoe Toles, Detroit negro havy- weight, Rosehbloom drew more than ?24,000. When, two months ago, the 34-year- old Rosenbloom appeared in Detroit again, against Jimmy Adamick, youthful Midland, Mich, slugger, customers paid §30,000 to see Maxie take the decision. Adamick, a slugger of the/Dempsey type, is under contract to Kearns for" a number of bouts. Jack has strings on. Buddy Knox, Johnny Whiters, Roscoe Toles and other less known heavyweights. Conservative estimates of Kearns' earnings from his promotions here so far this year are $50,000. This sum is "chicken feed" compared to his earnings in the roaring 20's but Jack is getting back nicely on it because he isn't the nation's leading "check picker- upper" as he was in his younger daysi All-America Gridiron Heroes of 1936 Season Are Cash-and-Carry Boys Now Seven of Eleven Members on Associated Press Team Are Playing Pro Football in the Toughest Circuit of All, the National League By BILL BON1 NEW YORK—I/P)—The polls still are open and the voters marking their ballots in the 1937 election for the all- America team. Therefore it would be a bit premature to start lining the boys up right now in any definite formation. But it's neither too early nor too late to check up on the 1936 all-Americas and see what they are doing now. Of all 11 members of last year's Associated Press All-America first team, two were juniors. They still are in college and, therefore, candidates for re-election. One of them, chunky, spring-muscled Clint Frank of Yale, is practically re-elected by popular—and expert- acclaim. Placed at quarterback on the "all' 'team a year go, his accomplishments in his senior campaign as captain, signal-caller, chief ball-carrier and defensive dynamite stick qualify him for a place, and a big one, on anyone's "dream team." The other hold-over, Joe Routt of Texas A. und M., is playing a good game at guard. The Texan, however, is laboring more obscurely than a year ago in the bulking shadow of his running mate, Virgil Jones. Seven of the nine others are playing pro football in the toughest circuit of all, the National league. The two exceptions to the rule are Larry Kelley, Frank's team-mate and chief pass- snatcher at Yale, and Max Starcevich, brawny guard of the Washington Huskies, 1936 Pacific Coast Conference champions. These boys turned to similar pur- suits. The talkative EH is coach and history instructor at Peddle school as well as rookie sports writer, while Starcevich, at last reports was coaching a high school team. Two of the backs, Harrison (Sam) rancis, Nebraska fullback, and Ray Buivid, all-around Marquette star, are with the Chicago Bears. Francis has been a ball-toting ace for the Chicagoans right along. The fourth member of last year's ball-carrying quartet, Ace Parker of Duke, has joined the Brooklyn Dodgers. Parker spent part of the baseball season with the Philadelphia Athletics, seme time with their farm teams, and had some trouble getting Manager Connie Mack's contract to his venture in the bruising pro game. Four all-America linemen also are making fresh reputations and handy pieces of change for themselves as pro gridders. Gaynell Tinsley, brilliant Louisiana Stater picked as Kelley's partner at end, is leading the league and likely to set new records for pass-catching He's with the Chicago Cardinals. Ed Widsets, towering Minnesota tackle, is a defensive star for the New York Giants. Center Mike Basrak, formerly of Duquesne, is with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He also teaches typewriting at Duquesne university's prep school. A former Pitt Panther, Tackle Averell Daniell was bought by the Brooklyn Dodgers from Green Bay. All-America teams at best are mythical creations. But, on the evidence supplied by Messrs. Tinsley, Francis, Widseth, Daniell, Basrak, Buivid and Border Football in Majestic Setting V *—^ BUY NOW!
