PAGE FOUK HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Coach Bible Sees ! i Texas U. Stronger , _i - i More Reserve Strength, Greater Speed In Line This Year By KEUX U. McKNIGHT AUSTIN —<.•*'•'-- Sophomore football players and Texas weather stand on common ground. It' von can call your shots on the, weather, yen can speak authoritatively about the 1939 University of' Texas football team — a strung?) group sort of grimly determined to: make aood against sundry handicaps.; Dana X Bible, shy on winners the! past couple of reasons but con- vincevi now he has finally cleaned house and fathers a hustling band.! pencilled down his squa<l list, looked up and commented: | "I can't see any boy on the roster } who is going to put ease above achieve- j inent. Inexperienced? Yes—but I'm! not worrying too much about that., We have picked up an excellent frame of mind. The buys are in step with I us." " I Texas, winner of one game last year, undoubtedly has picked up reserve >trei'i:th and has more speed in the line. The majority o£ the squad; has never played under any other ' "s.M-tem" and the Bibe way of doing things with a foot bill has taken root after three years of rehabilitation. ' Sophmores. however, must be depended upon to ignite a team long in ' the doldrums. There- are three or four : boys who may have the spark. Tail- ! backs' Jack Crain and Pete Layden -and Fullbacks B. B. Patrick and R. ', L. Harkin- euhl do it. I "Crain is a boy I am convinced can ; So all'the way." said Bible. "Layden is | fast, a goud kickev and passer. Patrick is a polished ball handler—probably our bc-.st a-arotmd runner. Har- I kins has power—and can gick. Of; course, we have two veterans, little, Giiiy Davis and Beefus Bryan to add i 'to our taiback strength.' i Bryan has injures that may not per- j mil top work. j Bullet Gray, a veteran, and Letter- ' man John Gill are good enough at the ! frontback. or blocking, position, but i Bible took a terrific b!vv when Vernonr ( Martin^ Amarillo .sophmore decided to abondon football and return hme to : his bride.

Experienced Nelson Puett. a scrapper I who owns, a great foitbal tempeva- | ment heads up the right halfback bunch, just ahead of Raymond (Wild Horse) Mayes. the Amerillo schoolboy sensation; Charlie Parrett and Noble Doss, three sophmores! Four sophmores are the only available centers. Of the group, Bible says Red Goodwin and Dave Thayer have "sound quaifications and are dependable." Despite Jack Rhodes' absence, guard play should be improved. Sophmore Chal Daniel of Longview was destructive in the first intrasquad game, while Letterman Ted Dadson was reliable. Sophmores are swarming all over them for starting positions. Don Weedon, V. D. Basey. Paul Colleti and Jack Freeman are pushing hard. "Those boys are scrappers. Down in the middle of the line, where they j mix it, we've got some boys who ike / it,"' quoth Bible. ! Reserve strength has been added to! the tackles. Veterans Park Myers and Dun Williams should start, with Le-tterman Bill Kilman and Sophs' Dili-wood Feveto, Bo Cohenour. Law-, rence Ricks and Julia Garret, be- • hind.

Wilson was matching Walters with the stars of the other clubs . . . branded him as 'good us Di//y Dean/' then at his peak. Not the le;ist of Walters' qualities is his desire lo win. He. will fight to stay in the box even when he hasn't his visual stuff, which is seldom these days. "When it wus lime lo take him out while we were with Ihe Phillies.' says Wilson, now a Cincinnati coach, "he'd stomp his foot and threaten never to pilch another ball for me. "Any pitcher who wanted to stick in there with the Phillies behind him had to have something besides natural ability."

Harassed by unwelcome thoughts, Wishing to fill every hour, Marian decided on a celebration. Perhaps a wistful longing to taring Dan back to her side had something to do with the decision. "Let's have someone in Saturday night," she suggested at breakfast on Thursday. "Why Saturday night?" "It's our wedding anniversary, Dan." He raised his eyebrows. "Why celebrate the 12th? We haven't celebrated for years." "I'm surprised that you know it is the 12th." "I should." They were off again. Marian bit her lip. Quarrels were too devastating. She tried ,-igain. "We never see anyone. Wouldn't you like it, Dan?" He nodded soberly. "Who could we ask?" "Well—we haven't seen Bill and Amy Ellen since we were married —but they're here in Chicago." "Yes, I suppose we could ask them." "Do you remember the day we went to see them? Bill out of a job—Amy Ellen thin and ball sick." "Yes, I remember," "What about Bill? Do you ever see him?" "I sold him $2000 worth of equipment last month." "You did? Is he in business?" "Purchasing agent for Tinley Motors." Marian butterad a slice of toast thoughtfully. "Shall we ask them?" "All right." "And Carma—she's desperately unhappy. I wish I knew to invite for her. Maybe; got a little attention—" "I see Randy Means almost every day. He was in my fraternity at the university." "Is he nice? Would Carma interested'.'" Dan's glance was arnus'-d. "Yes, I think almost any girl would be interested. He happens to be worth half a million, lie's good- looking, pupukn; and unman ied." "That'll be six, enough lor Ibi.s little place. I'll ask Dolly to hclpV a man if .she be "I know she's swell, but— 5| "But what?" "You'll have to admit that she has very little style and snap. Her clothes are cheap, sort of frumpy- looking." "I think Dolly looks nice in her clothes," Dan countered. "Some good chap would do well to meet her. Let me think—" "Oh, she won't mind being the odd one." * * * HPHAT evening Marian called •*• Amy Ellen Sands. They were very chatty, exchanging regrets that so many years had elapsed since their last meeting. Yes, Marian was still working. Dan was line. Yes, still working for the same firm. And how was Amy Ellen? Let's see—her boy must be 12 years old. Three others? My, my—how lovely. At last Marian proffered hoi- invitation and Amy Ellen accepted. Dan caught Randy Means at the Medinah Club. Sure he'd come, he'd like very much to come. "Lucky to get him," Dan remarked as he replaced the instrument. "He's popular as the dickens. Dates, freedom—" Marian looked at him narrowly. "Would you like dates and freedom, Dan?" He shrugged. "I'm pretty well trained to double harness." Carma hesitated over Marian's invitation. What was the use? She might as well accustom herself to loneliness. When Marian hinted that Dan had invited a most attractive man, she became more interested. ''You may like him," Marian said. "Anyway, he's unattached." "Uh-huh—I know. Divorced, paying huge alimony, sour on women." "Not at all. He's a bachelor. Rich and good-looking." "Yes, I know that kind, too. Conceited pigs—" Marian laughed. "All right, don't come. What do you want for nothing?" "I'll be there." They called Dolly from across the hall and .she entered into the pian with enthusiasm. Dinner for six—well, seven—of eour.se .she and Marian could manage it. "I'll do the jumping up and down," she offered. "What shall we serve?' 1 Marian knitted her brows in of but "K Dolly come, . b,.-",| l.,c ;i | thought. It was actually tun to be giving a party. Why hadn't she done it ottenci'.' "C'orktail- first," she decided. "Dan can be responsible for them." "Gosh, 1 haven't mixed a cocktail since 1 don't know when," lie "\Vc-ll, me."

".She':; a »well gal"." put ip. fttsy were all in a lighter mood, carried on by » common interest Dolly suggested, "How about having chickens done at the restaurant? We can fix vegetables and a nice salad—" "Yes," Marian nodded. "Ajad those meringue shells from the pastry shop are delicious. . Ice cream is an easy dessert." "Maybe we're doing a good turn," Marian said. "Maybe Randy Means will take a fancy to Carma." She told Dolly about Carma and Pete, ending with, "She's just about crazy, Dolly." "The poor girl," Dolly sympathized, "We'll put them side by side at the table—or would it be better to put him across from her so he can see how pretty site is?" * * <; H^llE next morning Marian went to the office with the comfortable feeling that her apartment would be cleaned, that the ordering and arrangements for the party were being capably taken care of by Dolly. Friday passed pleasantly, Saturday morning was without untoward incident. Marian left the office at noon for a manicure and hair-do. Her nerves had eased, she felt physically much better. Arriving home at 4 o'clock she found the table set in the living room. Shining silver, pale green linen, a bowl of violets in the center. Everything was neatly ready in the kitchen, peeled potatoes in cold water, a white head of cauliflower ready to be steamed, carrot slivers which were to surround the cauliflower. Marian dressed carefully, a simple black dinner gown, long and clinging with exquisite collar and cud's on the long-slec-vcd, tailored blouse. Site had bought the dress for the occasion. Its purchase had pushed the Manning bill to a new and alarming high. )n it, Marian was her smooth and brittle best. Dolly, flushed and radiant, rushed back and forth between the kitchen and the living room. She had a slightly tousled look. Her shell pink dress matched the color in her cheeks. In spite of being fully three years old, the dre.-s was vastly becoming. When she ran to her own apartment for a favorite knife, Marian caught the lapel of Dan's cout as lie would have passed her. "Do I look nice, Dun'.'" He patted her cheek. "Beautiful, Marian." "You didn't used to call me Marian," wistfully. Again lie touched .'itr n>i«;'.'<l c'heek. "1 kuuvv," b{> j.;:Jcl.
