Thanksgiving Dny will mnrk llu ond of (ho Infill school football carpers of Hugh RCPSP mid Freeman Stone. It will also he the end of pro]) foot- bull for several other members of the tetun. Stone mid Rop.se came to Mope from Center Point, small Howard county school. They were forced to come here to attend high school. os Center 1*01111, nt thiit lirnc. hnd no high school. They ployed their first games under Coach Foy Hnmmons nt the sturt of the 1i)34 season which was Hmiimons' first year in Hope. Stone, incidentally. played in the first football game he ever yaw nnc! ha.s been--more or loss— a "GO-mimitf man" ever since. In four yeiirs of football. Stone has played it) i-very game. He lias been a valuable num. The piist two years be bus been selected on tlic majority of all-state teams. Unless we miss our guess, he will again bo selected for a tackle berth on the majority of all- stnto setcticms. The first three years. Stune escaped with only minor injuries. This year, be lias been handicapped in two games because of a leg injury. But injury or no injury. Stone mnnngcs to play. Reese, in four years with the Bobcats, has been an outstanding! pluyer. His training in basketball aided him greatly in being on the receiving end of many a football less. Reese had a great season in 1!)3G and was picked for an end position on a Tri-Stnte team. He ranks with the best of state wingman this year. An amusing tale is revealed about the beginning of the high school careers of these two athletes. It seemed Unit both Reese and Stone first picked Nashville High School as the institution to receive their diploma. Both had played considerable basketball at that time, but neither hnd much knowledge of football. Both had courage, ability and ntnbi- tion. They only wanted a chance. The story goes that they rented a model "T" and headed for Nashville whore they tidked with the Nashville coach about playing football. It is said they received little encouragement. They told of their basketball accomplishments—but when it came to football—thoy could say little. Discouraged, they selected Hope. And WHS that a lucky break for Hoix:? These two huskies have been powers in the Bobcat line four years. Besides- their feats on the gridiron, both <ire good basketball players. We .•ire informed (hat Center Point's contribution to Hope will be University of Arknnsiis bound upon receiving their diplomas. Good luck and smooth sailing! * * * * * Coach Foy Hammons showed Hope football fans two effective offensive formations in the game here last week against Russellville—the single wingback to the right or left which has been used all season—and the "chicken fight" formation, a very deceptive maneuver (hat involves a spinning, bucking back. The "chicken fight" formation is pretty to look at besides carrying out its purpose of deception. Hammons used this formation with great success ul Pine Bluff. We saw it revived by Hamtnons Friday night for the first lime since we looked at a Pine Bluff team playing Prescott years ago when the Curly Wolves were in their hey-day. We would like to see more of this formation. Warning Is Given State Cage Teams Against Rules to Play Independent Basketball Teams LITTLE ROCK.—L. M.

Hot Springs to Be Entered in League Berth in Cotton States League Is Assured, Says Report HOT SPRIN6S. Ark.-All doubt as to Hot Springs buying a franchise in the Cotton States Lengue was ended Tuesday when more than $6,000 worth of stock was subscribed by citizens solocited by committees. Before the committee left the Chamber of Commerce, a "pop" talk was given (he workers by Roy Gillenwater, county assessor and for years a semiprofessional player, and Mose Holloman, chairman of the temporary organization. As they were about to leave, they were interrupted by Lon Warneke, pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, who makes his winter home in Hot Springs, Warneke first subscribed for stock, then asked for subscription blanks and joined others in the campaign. Warneke said he was delighted to learn that Hot Springs was getting into professional baseball, and predicted, as did Douglas Hofchkiss, manager of the Chamber of Commerce, that the local organization would receive assistance from the larger clubs. It also was pointed out that (he Ray Doan Baseball School again will be held here. The sciiool graduates a score or more of promising players each year, some of whom go immediately into big company. A (otat of $7,500 is necessary to obtain the franchise, and the remainder will be easily raised, it was said..Many of the teams, because of the cold weather quit canvassing early. A telegram was sent J. Walter Morris, president of the Cotton States League, announcing Tuesday's results. He will coll a meeting of league and club officials here November 28. Three-Letter Man Here's Harvard Yale Brown rolled into one lively little package of pigskin pepper. That's his real name.

Oklahoma Team to InvadeJThis City Bobcats in Shape for Battle—Will Be Seeking Eighth Victory The Goodland, Okla., Indian Acad> emy, which has sought a football game with Hope for the past two years, will be the opponents of the Bobcats here Friday night at 8 p. m. The Goodland team, an all-Indian squad, is reported to have an imprest sive record this season, losing but one game. The team is coached by L. G- Griggs. It will the third time that a Ham-, mons-coaehed football team has played an all-Indian squad. Two years at Pine Bluff, Coach Hammons sent his Zebras against Indian teams of Oklahoma. "As a general rule they have tricky and crazy formations, are usually fast- steppers and are real scrappers," Hammons reported. Names of members of the squad, weights, numbers and the record ,of the team is expected to arrive in the mail here Thursday morning and will be announced Thursday afternoon. The Bobcats will be in good shape for the game. Edward Aslin, regular halfback, has recovered from a shoulder injury that kept him out of the Russellville game last week. Hugh Reese, veteran end. sustained a knee injury last week and may get to see but little of the game. The balance of the squad, Coach Hammons reported, are expected to be in shape; It will be the eleventh game of the current season. To date the Bobcats have won seven and lost three. Following the game Friday night, the Bobcats clash with St. Joseph High School of Dallas, Texas, at Hope on .Thanksgiving afternoon. The St. Joseph game will be the final prep contest for several members of the team.

"There Is No Profitable SvbsMlute for Qw>JMy" By JOCK SUTHERLAND Pittsburgh's Ilcud Couch PITTSBURGH— Sonic claim thai a football player .should have no (rouble in switching from left to right end or from left to right tackle. They conoid that end and tackle play .should "*.• about the some on cither side. There is n difference, however, and it is not altogether u question of mental hazard, either, although that probably has u part in it. This season, the University of Pittsburgh has, or rather had, three right ends, and only one left end. Frank Souchak, a real All-America, and Paul Shuw and Fabian Hoffman were right ends. Bill Dacidio, the equal of Souchak, was a loft end. In a normal schedule, Daddio would require some relief, so we hail to try cither boys at his position. All had difficulty, but I believe that Souchak now is ready to play at either side, although naturally he is u great right end. Why should the right side be easier to play? Defensively, it might be because most of the loams Pittsburgh has met I his year have blocked better when running to their right—against our left. Thus, despite the increasing diversity of attack in modern football, we usually find the finest defensive men on the loft side of the line. mockers on the High! To offset this, of course, we must have accomplished blockers on the right to meet these crack defense men. Hight ends and tackles have Ui be j superlative blockers, and when the.s ire, in my opinion, even up for any rouble they may find in playing on he left when the other side has the ball. Many clubs run plays to the right all lay because it's so hard to gut line- nen to pull out and block to the left. It works on the same principal as a right-handed halfback often finding it difficult to run to the left, or attempting to pass while bearing in that direction. It's a matter of muscular and mental conditioning and equilibrium. It would be a simple matter for a left-handed player, but how many southpaws do you find in football V Naturally, u player is not tuptiotch if he cannot run to the left as well as to the rigid. The only exception is in the backfield when a player runs to the left and attempts to pass. No back can riuj to the lef and pass right- handed with ease unless he is ambidextrous. Otiierwise, he must stop fcefore he throws, unless he chucks a thort pass to the left flat. This can be done witb comparative ease. Don't forget that a college coach deals with young players, and usually has no more than six or seven finished performers capable of executing plays to perfection after weeks of drill. Ma^hiif nji AH- America In 1928, Pittsburgh had only three tackles, Tully, Corson, and Mike Getto. Tolly was a sophomore, Corson a ju«iqr reserve, and Getto had played a littfc b.jt in the Rose Bowl the year before, but very little prior to that perfect shape, and ran and blocked as few linemen have for the Panthers. We had Tony Uan.sa at left half, and tried to put Getto at loft tackle to run ahead of Tony on reverses, but Mike simply could not play left tackle. He went to right tackle and became i.n All-America, and an all-time tackle in Pitt history. In (lie 13 years that I have coached Pittsburgh, only five of our best ends came to school as players of that position. Four of thorn were Honey Guarino, Joe Doiic-liL-ia. Ted Dailey, and Mu<4- psy Skladany. The other is our current and brilliant Frank Souchak. Of this year'.s four, three played other pcsilion.s. Eill Daridio had been a fullback, Getto, however, came to camp in guard, and center prior to landing at end on our freshman squad. Fabian Hoffman, who caught (he pass that led to our first touchdown figain.st Notre Dame, was a high school tackle, but as he weighed only 175 pounds last season, we believe [hat he would make a better end. He had the speed, and has picked up an additional five pounds. Paul Shaw played full and halfback in high school. Looking back, there were Harvey Hooker and Verne Baxter, two of our greatest, who played full in high school. Speaking of ends, there is no end to a player's possibilities in football. Baron Manager Is Given Release Riggs Stephenson Is Let Out by Birmingham Officials' BIRMINGHAM, Ala.- (/)') -Release of Riggs Stephenson as player-man- uger of the Birmingham Barons, rumored here since the baseball chili finished sixth this year, came Tuesday He was released to "give him an opportunity to make a deal for himself," Executive Vice President Jim Burl announced. There was no intimation of a successor for the former major league player, known to baseball bans as "Ole Hoss." A former football star at the University of Alabama, he managed the Barons in 1936 and 1937, finished third last year and winning the Ehaughnessy play-off. This year's club was beset by injuries and finished far behind the leaders. One of the many rumors here said a major league club would acquire a minority stock interest in the Barons, awl would supply the team with several players from its wrolly- owned clubs. There was no confirmation of this statement. /^^fe with - 19MOW-SAVIHG NEW 1938 DODGE h-TON PICKUP -6-Cyl,, "L"Head Engine —116 W. B.—Packed full of money-saving features! Yet priced with the lowest!
