Eat Too Well But Not Wisely MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Too much civilization can cause malnutrition, according to a low-cost nutrition study by Northwestern Nation alLifc Insurance Company. Millions of Americans are undernourished because food money is wastefully spent on account of "over-civilized eating habits and lack of education in food values." You need only three or four pounds of food u dny, the study points out, and says the cost can be as low as 25 cents daily if you stick to simple food nnd avoid tidbits and stimulants. A pound of wholewheat foods plus a pound of milk per person daily, a few cents worth of vegetables and fat, and if any food money is left', dairy products, fresh eggs, additional fruits nnd vegetables and good meat—and there's your menu. • Robert B.

Smith, remarkable as a junior, this fall as a senior threw the pass that beat Michigan, among other things, but that was his last act because of a knee injury, and Minnesota went on without him. An All-America player has to go all the way. Dudley was undoubtedly a great runner and sidearm passer, but the opposition wasn't what it might have been. More than one critic picked flaws in Dudley's defensive ability. As outstanding as he was, there was too much support for Steve Lach, Bob Westfall, Frankie Albert and Mose Moser to give the' scintillating Cavalier a top berth. Lach Duke's Best Back in History; Westfall Is Game's Slickest Spinner • Lach is considered "the finest all- round back in Duke history, and the Blue Devils have had some pippins, Ace Parker, the mos't valuable man in the National League in 1940, to name just one. Lach, 21-year-old senior, stands six eet two and weighs 190 pounds. Bach's figures would be more im- ressive had he not played the wing- lack. He averaged eight yards a airy and led the outfit in catching >asses. He led the country in that department a year ago. His punting aver- ige was 45 yards, and he was the >est blocker in the Durham party. le played 55 minutes or longer in all of his school's tough games. On de- "ense, he did not have a superior in he land. Westfall is one of the slickest spinners the game has known. Fritz Cris- .er built the Michigan attack around Westfall, a fullback built close to the ground. Bob's 186 pounds is spread over no more than five feet eight inches. He averaged more than four irards per whack against the hardest dnd of opposition. He fumbled only once in three years and then, in the Minnesota game this year, when he was bumped by a young wingback coming too shallow on a reverse. A bruising fullback, Westfall also skirted the ends, was a superlative blocker and a stout defender, Albert Was Key Man of Stanford 'T'; Moser Kept Texas A. and HI. Going Albert was the genius and the nian- ipulator behind the T formation of Clark Shaughnessy. Only five feet nine inches and 1TO pounds, he made up in good, solid intelligence what he lacked in avoirdupois. A triple-threater kicking and passing from the left side, Albert handled his key assignment in the difficult T formation with poise and savvy. A natural leader, a daring play-caller, his confidence in himself and his teammates was spirational force. Washington State stopped him when Nick Susoeff and Dale Gentry, gianl ends, crashed through the Stanford defense but the fault was in the blocking, not in Albert. The one time he did get protection, he threw a touchdown pass. Texas A. and M. suffered heavy losses by graduation, and would have gotten exactly nowhere without Moser, who is a 21-year-old inspirational leader standing an even six feet anc weighing 185. With the departure of John Kimbrough & Co., Homer Hil Norton constructed an aerial attack with Moser pitching which carriec the Aggies unity they could sufficiently develop theit running game. Mosei ran as well as he passed and was a tremendous kicker. Dove Caught Bertelli's Passes; Rokisky Duguesne Place-Kicker Dove was one of the great ends in a line of star Notre Dame flankers. A junior standing six feet one and one-half inches and weighing 188 Ibs., this 20-year-old wingman was one of the main factors in the success of the Irish passing game. Dove caught Ang- ed excellently, arid was a standout elo Bertelli's bullet-like heaves, block- defensively. At the other flank, John Rokisky of undefeated Duquesne won the nod on his all round capabilities. Key man in a line which held the opposition to an average net gain of 55 yards per game, Rokisky led the roaring Dukes in scoring. He is 21, stands six feet two and weighs 196. He place- kicked for 13 of 17 points after touchr down. He blocked a kick and recovered the ball against Marquette. He dropped into secondary on pass defense, intercepted five. He was very fast, especially under punts, where the Pittsburgh school's opponents had an average gain of 3.1 yards. He was never seriously injured. He is a baseball pitcher, and baseball playing is the mark of the good athlete. Wildung Stood Out in Minnesota Line; Peabody Gives All- America Culture Blandin was the most terrifying tackle in the Southeastern Conference. OUT OUR WAY « By J.R. Williams ffr HOW'D WE COME T 1 MAKE HIM TH 1 MAW TEAM AW' ME TH' AEMV TEAM? WHY, »T OTiST KIWDA <ZOl THAT WAV, CUZ. OH. HOW STL) PI O OF ME/ I THOUGHT IT WAS BECAUSE HE'P BEEM TH 1 MOST RECEWTOWE AR.OUMP WATER Weighing 235 pounds and exceedingly mobile, he was the hub' of a Tulane line which' pushed the opposition all over the field despite three losses in a hot and cold season. Wildung stood out in the herculean Minnesota line. Agile, powerful and tough, he has been a regular since the Gophers' first game in 1940, his sophomore year. Chub Peabody, the culture boy, puts the broad A back in All-America. Standing six feet and weighing 185, he hit ball carriers so hard they frequently fumbled with Peabody winding up with the ball. This was Frahkowski's third year as a regular. Standing five feet 10 and scaling 210, he was the most formidable lineman on the west coast. A wrestler, too, he was unusually fast despite his stocky build. Jenkins was given the call over such a great center as Vince Banonis of Detroit. He was the key man in Missouri's first-string line which was unscored on. Missouri lost only to Ohio State, and the six-foot 210 pound senior was out of that one, with an injury. He called defensive signals. Second Team Holt Roast, Alabama L. E. Robert Reinhard, Calif. L. T. Ralph Fife, Pittsburgh L. G, Vincent Banonis, Detroit ..„ C. Bernard Crimmins, Notre Dame R. G.

T. u. nee, u.«. nr. err Strange Ways of Democracy Many Wonder What Has Happened to Highway Bill By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON—Democracy works in strange ways but none is stranger perhaps than what has happened to the defense highway bill. Almost a year ago, the Federal Works Agency and the Public Roads Administration, with the help of the Army and Navy, drafted a report to the President on "the absolute minimum necessities' for new and im-' proved highway? in national defense areas. With some revisions, the President made his recommendations to congress, pressed upon them the necessity for speed, since some bridges already were collapsing and some roads being churned into successions of sink-holes by the army's new motorized and tank equipment (just light tanks, mind you —none of those 60-tonners has yet had a chance at making soup out of our super highways). Congress was amenable. Along in the summer, it passed the big fine defense road bill, but the opportunity, was too good to skip and where the President had recommended only ?25,000,000 for emergency work on our so-called strategic network and the. remainder of several hundred million for' the sorely needed access roads to camps and industrial defense centers, Congress chunked in an additional hundred million to be allocated to states under the old 1916 highway fund allocation rules. The President promptly vetoed the bill and by the narrow squeak of one vote the House of Representatives sustained that veto. He intimated that Congressmen had loaded the bill with "pork barrel" measures, to gain favor with their states and districts by hand- ing them lush allocations of unnecessary highway funds. Some of the Congressmen to uphold the president caught it in the neck politically. For example, the opponents of one such came out with the announcement that Rep. So-and-So, voting against overriding the veto, had cost the state $7,000,000 in highway funds. Another accused their Congressmen of "sabotaging" the states $'8,000,000 road improvement plans. Congress immediately set about to rectify its fizzle, but it meant putting up another bill— one that would not be vetoed. The whole business had to go back through committees and all the haggling over how much money was to be spent, who was to spend it, and where, gone through again. Finally out of it came the new $170,000,000 defense highway bill, setting aside 5150,000,000 for the much needed access roads. The house passed it, but in doing so, they not only lopped off the $100,000,000 "pork barrel" item, but also that ?25,000,000 which the President and his reporting agencies had said were immediately needed for improvement of the strategic network (mainly for bridges). The House committee, in making its report, discovered something that apparently was overlooked when congress acted before—that there is some $266,000,000 already appropriated and unspent for highways an dif even a portion of this is allocated to the strategic network, it will be about all that the bottlenecks of technical labor and priority mateials can take cae of. The committee, howeve, did beak one vebal paddle on congcss: "The un- fotunate delays in acting on the ecom- mendations of Fedeal Woks admin- istator and the Commissioner of Public Roads, made public last February, have caused uncertainty and confusion. Urgently needed access roads to military establishments and defense plants have not been built." The committee estimated that "32,000,000 civilian motor vehicles operating daily over the highways of this country arc vital to defense." Since that's about the crop of motor vehicles in the country, I guess the dya of the pleasure car is gone forever. The new defense highway bill now is before the senate—t—en months after the experts said it was "urgently necessary" and "vitally important" to our defense effort. Democracy grinds along, but sometimes exceedingly slow. Where There's a Will There's a Way WASHINGTON -(ff>)— Wild ducks on the Mud Lake National Wildlife Refuge in Marshall County, Minn., want their bands whether they arc being given out or not. When Manager Carl B. Vogcn temporarily closed his banding traps, the ducks found a way in anyhow. One trap was packed with 72 ducks. Vogen discovered the ducks had entered by diving under the surface of the water and coming up through the bottoms of the traps. Fair Warning Perhaps you haven't heard about the mamma kangaroo who took her two little babies out of her pouch, banged their heads together, and shouted: "How many times do I have to tell you to stop eating crackers in bod?"
