Joseph High School of Dallas. TPXIIS. For color and bciuity and Die fact that its fini.sh for nine regulars of the HO|M- team, no other buttle moans quite so much us this one. Interest and enthusiasm are close to their hearts.

We have an idea the game means much to Hammons. He has been close to several members of the team four years, leaching them how to win and i.t the same time sportsmanship and lair play which is most valuable in any line of duty. To the team and Coach Haminon.s we salute you. Good luck! They Ought toTje It to a String CHICAGO—Since 11133 Jack Manders has cost the Chicago Bears J300 worth of footballs.

The tabulation of point.s in the .sixth weekly poll, on a 10-!l-8-7-G-r)-4-:)-2-l basis: California Will Play in Rose Bowl Fordham, Alabama, Pitt Are Considered as Opponents SAN FRANCISCO —(iT 1 )— Football's big push in the far West, all over but the final exultant .shouts, found University of California on the Coast Conference throne Sunday, pondering the selection of a suitable opponent for the Rose Bowl classic on New Year's day. The "who's who" of Eastern gridirons (no team west of the Mississippi river Ls expected to get the invitation) indicated Fordham's Rams, the Uni- versily of Alabama and Pittsburgh's Panthers would be considered. California's graduate manager Kenneth Priestley, who will have the responsibility of picking the Eastern team said only: "We hope to oppose an <;utstanding team, one which has both ncntlemif and athletic standards comparable to those of California." Some considered this an inferential slap at Pittsburgh and Alabama. Others did not. In some quarters unbeaten Fordham was reported to be under closest consideration. The Bears clinched the championship and the January 1 football plum, which incidentally carries with it a financial inducement of importance, by walloping their oldest rivals, Stanford, 13 to 0, Saturday. Undefeated and lied once, California chalked up six conference victories in addition to triumphs over St. Mary's, the California Aggies and the College of the Pacific. Fordham defeated St. Mary'.s C to I) Saturday. In the opening game of the season, Sept. 25, California crushed St. Mary's ,'!0 to 7. Coach Leonard "Stub" Allison, in hi.s third year, put California in the championship class. His IS36 eleven, practically the same' as this year's, finished well down in the standings with four victories and three defeats. i Robbins Considering I Several Pro Offers LITTLE ROCK-W—Reports that Jack Robbim of the University of Arkansas aerial circus would join the Little Rock high physical education staff next season brought a denial Tuesday from officials of the school.

Alabama as the favorite over the mid-west involved in four. Detroit will meet Duquesne.

And he had many a labor-saving trick stored away. Holliman was for lashing the cross bars or steps to the ladders with small rope, after setting them into notches. Hades made a stronger ladder in half that time by healing an iron rod and burning holes through the Uprights, then inserting his short steps therein. Mary Melissa was able to help him with the heating, and she trimmed the step ends with a hatchet.

Not broke. Worth many dollars. Some with thee horse design. You know?" Holliman knew. Most outdoors- men do, in the Southwest. An ancient pot, from some prehistoric ruin, is likely to be worth $100 or more as a museum piece. A horse design used in ornamenting water jars and grain storage jcrs would more likely be worth $1000. Horses were not native to 'Ms continent. They were brought- here by the first Spaniards. Horse patterns painted on walls of prehistoric ruins probably are due tc Spanish invasion, as -jt Canyon ds> Chelly or Canyon del Muerto Arizona,' far to the north Defiance Castle.

"Why she's a godd—'scuse, ma'am—she's a danged redskin squaw ain't she?" Uncle Hades 1 maniR;r suggested that such a classification was sufficient to damn her irrevocably, forever and ever, 'Lissa nodded.. "I mean—is she—is she all i She sat down on a rock, and he f ? r th ^_, two busy days - That is ' she said little, but she observed much. She had been rebuffed by Bob, who hadn't perceived her purpose, but she was by no means admitting defeat. She knew some pale'face tricks as well as Indian wiles, and she meant to use them. The very decorous manner in which Mary Melissa ,^,'iow sought to gain Bob's personal approval did not escape Honey Bee's notice. Why should a white girl, miles from civilization, spend half an hour on her personal toilet each morning, and again before each evening meal? What mattered it, on a rough outdoor expedition, if one's hair were not curled and set exactly right? Or if one's rouge were not applied perfectly, and one's clothes meticulously dainty and clean? Honey Bee Girl, however, came from a race whose dominant characteristic is patience. * * * E watched her chance to catch Scott Holliman alone, at some distance from the camp. She came quickly to the point, as usual in ier conversations. "You want to make money," she suggested, scowling, but not look- ng directly in his eyes. "Why—yeah Don't Oh I'll tell you, conflden- ttalry, Uncle Hades. She is throw> ing herself at Dr. Barry! I think she imagines he's in love with her," Hades chewed on his tobacco for a few seconds. "1 seen that already," he stated calmly. "I been liggerin' wiyit to do about it." ''You have seen it?" Mary Me^ lissa was surprised. "You did?" "Yes'm. Everybody has, I reckon, except Bob hisself. Blind young squirt. Not that he ain't right to me, ma'am, but—looky here, Miss M'lissy, ain't choo sort of took to him yoreself?" His jaw stopped working as he ceered at her intently, fjer blush was answer enough. The old man IscWed in friendly laughter. "Honey," he patted her shoulder Mrs. Flora Cotton Slater and Miss Asia. Each such piece would tend al i\' os '" Bll -'vins. to strengthen the theory that „%,-', America was populated first 3 y i ±£h''^ K !±^ fe^T, *«*" Asiatics, hence each 'iuch piece was of high value. Holliman knew that. "Jars with horses on 'em? Whole jars?" Honey Bee nodded. "All right, I'll bite. What you want?" "You make thee love, tvy marry thee white woman?" "Kunh?" Holliman was shocked with surprise. "You make thee love, Miss Lane. Keep her away from Bawb. I show you thee cave with horse jars." It was sort of fantastic, funny even, this strange proposition. But Holliman got the point. He pushed his floppy 10-gaHon hat back on his head and grinned, but he told Honey Bee it was a bargain. "You do it—without me. You know?" Honey Bee scowled at liim, in her peculiar manner. She looked a little vicious then, for all lier wild beauty. Holliman sobered. "Yeah, I see. I get paid for nuking love and keeping my mouth shut, while yew take Barry. It's a deal. It oughtn't to be sucb mean job, nohow." (To Re nesday guests of Mrs. Johnny Wade.

Snow melted rapidly Tuesday night around Kyle field stadium and pros« peels for chilly, but clear, weather loomed for the forty-third meeting here Thanksgiving Day of Texas A. zind M. and the University of Texas, the Southwesl's oldest grid foes. Out of the running for the Southwest Conference title, the Aggies and Longhorns, nevertheless, were eJtpect- . ed to draw nearly 30,000 customers, a record throng for the current sedson. Only bed-ridden Jim Turner, gang'' lang Aggie center who fought a case of influenza, was on the hospital list as botli teams prepared to move into ll:eir traditional classic top condition. Not since 1923, when a Texas lineman pounced on a fumbled punt across the goal line for a touchdown, has a L6ng- horn team defeated the Aggies on their sacred Kyle field soil. Two ties have, been played, in 1821 and 1933, in their£ 42 meetings here, while the Aggies • have emerged victorious nine flfllea 'If the Aggies, the pre-season Southwest Conference favorite, whip the Steers, they will finish with a .500 percentage, while Texas, winner of only? one game, can climb into a tie wjth the Aggies with a victory. Both are submerged deep in the second division. Thousands of ex-students of both schools were expected here Wednesday for the Aggie Frosh-Texas Shorthorn game, to be followed at nightfall by the traditional bondfire on the Aggie drill field. There "Uncle Charley" Moran, once coach of the Aggies, will give a last minute "fight talk." The Longhorns were due to arrive here Thursday morning from Austin. Throughout the past 10 days Coach D. X, Bible has drilled his crew of expert punters on lofting the ball out, of hounds. Dick Todcl, the Aggies' great safety man. is one of the most feared punt-returners in the game. The Aggies went through their final hard drill- Tuesday after, spending Monday indoors studying.plays as snow piled up on the ground outside. of Mineral Springs.
