Positively, don't give the boys expense money out of your own pocket. Maybe they do deserve a good party as a letup after a hard game or season but don't show any Christmas spirit in November or October. Don't iritale the director of athletics.

MCKNIGHT Copyright, 183T The A I' Feature Service When Sammy Baugh came to the Washington Uedskins us a professional football freshman, Coach Hay Flaherty offered advice:— "You can't throw that ball around in this league the way they do in college," he cautioned. "It's too risky. You mustn't let go tho ball until you're nu-e of hilling the receiver right in the eye." "Which eye, coach?" asked Sammy. Anil it soon appeared thai Sommy could hit either eye. for, in his first game against the Giants, he completed II of Hi passes and hit his receivers with the other five. Il didn't take Buugh long to show the pros he could lake it. Les Corzinc. Gianl fullback, threw an exceptionally hard block into Sammy and they 'ciil down. Sammy got up, smiled and said: "Keep that up. boy, and you'll (/el your letter." The Giants let him alone lifter lhat. It was weeks earlier that profes- "ional football had got its first contact with Baugh. In Ihe late summer of 1937 he passed a college all-star team to a Chicago triumph over the Green Bay Packers.

U.'s freshman mentor. But tho professional offers were too atlractive and Baugh finally went to Washington. Already a fine kicker and passer, he became n crack runner. His pass receivers praised him, "When you're out there and break into the open—look oul! tho boll'll be on lop of you in a second. Boom! like that," said Wayne Millner, an end. "He could hit his receiver while lying on his stomach," said Cliff Batlles. "He doesn't have lo cock his arm and gel set. He throws sidearm and with :'. snap of the wrist. Sammy can knock a cigar out of your mouth at 20 yards." Il seemed likely early in the season that Baugh might break tho league "he did with 81 wasn't until he made monkeys of the Giants in the eastern title game thai blase Manhattan experts ranked him nnu/ng the greatest passers of all lime. And after he pitched the Redskins to the National league championship against the Bears sports writers were certain thev'd never seen a passer like Baugh. Benny Friedman, ranked as lops in passing, conceded Baugh was better than he'd been. Dutch Clark, another pro ace, labeled him the finest tosser he'd ever seen. With a flip of his wrisl, as lacking in windup as a pitcher holding runners on base, Baugh befuddled the Bears. He showed them a real change of puce. He'd throw short flat passes, intermediate bullets and long lobs. And he showed he didn't need any special receiver by tossing to seven I'ass-snalchers. His three-touchdown passing performance in Ihe third quarter was hailed as the greatest one- man show in grid history. To praises Baugli smilingly replies: "What the heck, anyone can pitch. H takes real ball players lo do Sutherland May 4- Resign at Pitt Rumor That He May Succeed Jones of Southern California " PITTSBURGH—M'i~Pilt'K smoulder- ing athletic quarrel has erupted again with a prediction by the Sun-Telegraph thai Coach John B. (Jock) Sutherland was preparing to resign at Ihe close of next season. Tension in the 1-itt Athletic Department flared la.sl winter to bring about resignation of the then athletic director. W. Don Harrison. Harry Keck, Sun-Telegraph sports editor, said Sutherland "was reported lo have lost favor with Chancellor John G. Bowman and other administrative officers of the university" and that he had been informed the coach was "virtually signed to succeed Howard Jones as coach at the University of Southern California beginnin-; with the 1939 season." Sutherland is on route lo .Vr\v Orleans, where Athletic Director James Hagan had gone, to allend sessions of Ihe National Collegiate Association and ether groups. Sutherland's contract svith Pill is of indefinite duration wilh a provision lhat either party mad dissolve it upon two year's notice. The present crisis, if one exists, was precipitated by the recent vote of th'e" Panther football squad rejecting a possible invitation to the Rose Bowl game against California. At the time Jock's closest friends said a word from him would have united the players in favor of the post-se-'ison trip, but they ither athletic officials did not said consult him inform him the bu had been culled to vote. The last five years of Sutherland's H years as head coach at his alma mater have not been us smooth as his record of 103 victories against 18 defeats and 10 tics would indicate. Friction belween Sutherland and Harrison reached a showdown before the Atheltic Council last winter after "I spend three years painting a portrait of myself and they hang it upside down!" the coach said he to reach into his own pocket to provide Panthei players allowances with which to celebrate their 21-to-U Rose Bowl triumph over Washington. the cutching."

Cleaners & Hatters By HARRY GRAYSON Sports Editor, NEA Service £omt> 500 sports and lurt writers should be able to decide the year's best horse of nil ages, bill as much as 1 dislike lo, I must disagree with the result of their vote. They elected Seabiscuit. I cast a ballol unreservedly for War Admiral. Seabiscuit, the money-winning champion with ?lG8,fi<12, was the greatest, four-year-old in many campaigns, Equipoise and Discovery notwithstanding. But War Admiral gets Ihe nod from me because I do not believe that any horse of any age in the world could have heulen the black three-year-old when he was at his peak. I'll make it stronger than that. I doubt that any horse could have defeated him at any distance from five furlongs to two miles. Here really was the thoroughbred bout which all owners and trainers dream . . . the sprinter who could go the route. War Admiral was in full stride in Ihe Belmont Stakes. At the start of that rich fixture, War Admiral tore half his quarter away. Most horses would have quit on the apot, but the mighty son of Man o' War not only won pulling away, but iilso smashed the track record, which his illustrious sire established 17 years before, and equaled the world record of 2:28 1 5 for the mile and a half. Any Track—Any Conditions There were two other occasions when a lesser star would have been repelled and would have had a legitimate alibi. Pompoon was in his finest form on Freakncss day, while War Admiral was unaccountably off. Yet in a wretch butlle lhat had the huge crowd gasping for breath at the finish, Samuel D. Riddle's brilliant runner out- yamed the son of Pom|x;y. 'lhat race forever will testify to Wai- Admiral's courage. He was su set on the job at hand that at thu end Charley Kurlbinger had a fight to slop him at 11. 1 ruined observers will testify that had the race been half a mile longer, the ebony flyer would have distanced the field. Following ihe Belmonl. War Admiral lad ic be hospitalized until he could grow a new hoof. When he returned the wars he bagged three races in eight days, giving away as much us 28 wuiuls in his last. In that final effort, :e was dull und sluggish, and got a ..oorly judged ride as well. But he would not be repulsed, and wasn't, ending the season with eight consecutive victories and $166,500, Svabbruit Was Excused il might have beuten War I Admiral in the fall. The latter was not up to his June form, nnd though Seabiscuit was being beaten on occasion, he was going great guns just Ihe same, selling track records under high weights. Nevertheless, the connections of Seabiscuil must have feared Ihe three-year-old, for they scratched their horse out of his scheduled meeting with War Admiral in Maryland. They explained thai the Biscuit -strip. Seabiscuit is an amazing horse. He's the soundest major campaigner on the tracks. He's game. He can carry Ihe Empire Slate building. He has a high flighl of speed, which he can turn on at any time. But still I do nol believe lhat.

Far be it from anyc-ne's mind to deliberately revive nr> unhappj incident, but the last time California appeared in the bowl one of the Be'jr.3 made a never-to-be forgolton run in the wrong direction setting the stage for a Georgia Tech victory. That was eight years ago. The bowl has been enlarged. The springy- turf has been planted and replanted. But the positions of the goal posts have not been changed. One wlil be the right goal, the other the wrong. Coach Stub Allison wanted that distinctly understood Wednesday. Alert guards stationed at the outside gates saw to it that the workout was private, and similar sentries patrolled the bowl's gates when Alabama added another drill to its busy schedule. Knothole observers at the 'Bama camp are confident of one thing. The Dixie eleven hopes to counter California's crushing power drives with a passing attack. The Crimson Tide picked up 517 yards via the airways in the season just closed, and eight of the throws—five by "Sleepy Joe" Kilgrow and three by Little Herky Moseley—paid off in touchdowns. California, with Vic . Botlari pilch- ing most of the time, ran up something like 571 yards through Ihe air, but was not as strong on pass defense as it was against running plays. Fully advised o f the danger of Bama's aeria thrusts, the Bears have practiced long hours to meet the callenge. It will be up to Perry Schwartz and Willard Dolman, the Bears' hefty Grid Coaches Ask ; : Two Rules Changes Would Make Game More Spectacular, Increase I 1 * Scoring ii" NEW ORLEANS—(yP)—The nationig football coaches rejected Wednesday any general revision of the rules but suggested two changes which they saicT would make the game more speclacu-, r ar through increased scoring. l^i Lou Little, Columbia University Coach and chairman of the Rules Corns mittee, said the group agreed on ihe^e recommendations: '; 1. That when the ball goes out of bounds or becomes' dead within in yards of the side line, it be put in play! 15 yards from the side line. The, present rule provides that the ball be, brought out 10 yards. •* 2. That a forward pass which "mad-* vertcntly" touches an ineligible man behind the line of scrimmage be called incomplete and counted as a down. Under present rules the offensive team loses the ball. .''mi. The group also asked for a cleaftstf interpretation of the rule relating 46 intentional grounding of a forwartl ': pass. j"|!;... Little and Dana X. Bible, Texas Uni| versity coach, will present the sugges'- tions to the Rules Committee of thV National Collegiate Athletic Association when it meets Sunday, at Edgif- water Park, Miss. • , y { ; Rules 'In Good Shape' || Bible said the majority of the coaches thought the rules were in "pretj^r good shape." *.; "Chairman Little," he said, "sent out questionnaires to 600 coaches ari'd received about 350 replies. Most of these expressed the belief that, fronr the standpoint of the coach, the prel- ent rules give him an opportunity ftr as diversified play as he wants. -ijj. "From the standpoint of the player Ihe rules afford him as much protection as they possibly can. The rules also appeared satisfactory from the standpoint of officials. "And, lastly, the rules appear good from the standpoint of the spectator, judging from the big attendance sit games during the past season. Changes Would Aid Offense ^; "Both of our suggested changes are designed to help the offense. If the bat 1 is brought in 15 yards from the sidelines, it will keep the defense evenly balanced on each side, thereby permitting a diversified attack. "The other recommendation, we believe, will encourage a greater use of the shovel pass behind the line of scrimmage and consequently give the offense more chance to score."
