The Mineral Springs senior boys defeated Columbus by a score of 42 to By JERRV BRONFIELD NEA Service Sports Writer ' CHICAGO—Word is that Howard Jones, majordomo of Southern California football affairs for 13 years will make his exit if Troy bows to U. C. L. A. in the mammoth Los Angeles Coliseum, December 4. Noc will it be a voluntary action on Jones' part. Jones likes Southern California and he likes hls'jobVbut the alumni wolves, backed up in a surprising manner by an immediate university element, are in full cry. At the beginning of the campaign about to close, there was every indication that the Trojans would go places. There was a fair nucleus on hand from the 193B squad, along with a brilliant crop of sophomores. But Southern California fared none too well. The Trojans defeated little : College of the Pacific, Ohio State, and Oregon. They lost to Washington, California, Stanford, and Notre Dame, and wore tied by Washington State and Oregon Elate. In the face of this somewhat disastrous season—the fourth in a row- Southern California alumni, who can't veem to tolerate a losing football team, suddenly found an ally in a certain university group that is interestec only in filling the athletic coffers. Am f Jones can't produce the team to do it they want someone who can. 23. The Mineral Springs team boasts i strong team this year. Lay of the •iornels paced his team in scoring. Phenomenal High School Boy Runs Wild Before 120,000 i - tb* largest football crowd in history-coliege or D« Da ?atorv DA rnSS^t nt ? la ? becnufor two campaigns that the contest Alumni, in a big-hearted way, gave up the Notre Dame game a month ago, although they would have been in the first stages of delirium tremens had they been at South Bend to see how close Troy came to winning without the services of the great back, Amby Schindler. So now the crux of the whole situation lies in the U. C. L. A. contest. According to the steam which is being worked up, Jones must win. The lid will be blown off with a crash if and when the Uclans as much as -eke out a one-point margin of victory. On the surface, all .the discontent appears a bit misplaced. The backbone of Jones' club this year turned out to 1» sophomores. The reserve strength was sophomore. In losing <to the Irish, 13-C, the first-year men gave promise of developing into a whale of a boll club next season. Phelnn Would Switch Grenville Lansdell perhaps was an even better quarterback than Schinder was at any time this fall. Bill E'angster and Bob Hoffman looked .like world beaters. Harry Smith and John Thomassin, guards, and Don McNeil tackle, have performed like veterans all season. AH they need is exper- ence* But unless U. S. C. slips-by its intercity rival, Jones probably will get no further chance to develop these prize jacknges. Someone else will fall heir o the best material on the coast And who would that be? Those who lave their fingers close to the pulse won't be surprised if it it's Jimmy Phelun, now 'at Washington. The Husky coach isn't exactly satisfied in Seattle. Just to balance things, the Puget Sound country isn't over-enthused about Phelan, It is said that Phelan would welcome the change and a chance to get in on the Southern California upswing. An unswing, incidentally, which is almost certain to come within the next grid season or two.

Georgia Mentor Quits . / Head Coaching Post ATHENS, Ga.-W-Harry Mehre, one-time Notre Dame grid star whose University of Georgia football teams have sometimes reached heights of I national recognition, resigned Wednes[ day the head coaching job he held 10 years. Mehre said only that he believed he should resign "for the future of Gebr- gia and its athletic teams" - but "in sports circles there has been talk for months that "the wolves are howling for Mehre."
