Coach Allen: .Berry will put his Wildcat grid ma-j 1 chine through a hard week of prac-' l tii-t? at Rou-land Field. | All the joy that Coach Berry may | have derived from the 2G to 6 victory over Crossett here Friday night was turned to gloom upon the return here of Assistant Coach Guy B. Hays. who .scouted the Hope-Haynesville .-•crap on the same night. After hearing his Seoul's report on the Haynesville land Hope teams. Coach Berry rapidly ! concluded that "our chances are very- slim." Rated the second strongest team in jthe state Coach Foy Hammon's Hope I Bobcats defeated Haynesville to the tune of 13 to 6, but the score doe.sn't tell all 'he story, according to Assistant Coach Hays. In the opinion | of the local scout, there is "not j one point difference between the two | teams." j Skipper Hays explained that Haynes| ville "donated" one touchdown to the l Bobcats by allowing a flat pass to be intercepted. The Golden Tornado [ machine, coached by Gaynell Tinsley. | All-American from L. S. U. has a line | that is going to deal the Berry Bom' hers misery galore. Tile right side of the Tinsley forward wall is virtually impregnable. Scout Hays reported. The right side boasts two chaps fo whom weigh 185 pounds and a third gent. Hoard, who tips the scales at 205. The other side of the wall isn't composed of weaklings according to Hays. Mainstay on the left wnll is Captain Rigdoti. a cnickerpack guard who packs 188 pounds of brawn. Observer Hays didn't find much to consile him about the Haynesville backfield. The Golden Tornado has a pair of good hard running backs in Pence and Crump, Pence grabbed a kickoff and galloped 85 yards for a touchdown at Hope Friday night. The two have nn able assistant in Tinsley cousin of the Haynesville coach. Th'e latter is a fast ball carrier and an efficient passer. Hays says. Facing such a potent combination. Coach Berry is openly worried. His worries don't end, however, with the game at Haynesville Friday night, for one week later the Hamons. Bob- j cats invade Rowland field for a scrap with the Wildcats. "Hope's got the' biggest line in the state," Scout Haysj ruefully informed Mentor Berry. One tackle, Simpson, weighs 255. while' the other. Calhoun. is a mere 235 pounder. Hope has a couple of hard charging 170 pound guards, two 200 pound ends and a 180 pounder at. center. I n the backfield, Foy Hamonds. has' Ellen, speedster who is apt turn his heels to Wildcat tacklers. Hope has another star back, Daniels, who was out of service but who is scheduled to play against the Wildcats here. CAN BET I'M ROLLING M?

H. COLBURX AP Feature Service COLUMBUS. O. — A team without i p "glamour boy." | That's what they're .saying at Ohio I State University about those razzle ' dazzle Bucks of Coach Francis A Schmidt. "There are no start; no triple threat men. Not even the lettermen are sure of 11 starting assignment!" That's the locker room talk as the one-time vaunted 'Scarlet Scourge" prepares for perhaps its toughest season in years. ~ixty-two players, largest squad since Schmidt came to Ohio State five years ago. came forth to be developed into a combination good enough to better last year's record of four win. three lost, and one tied. State finished sixth in the Big Ten. Twenty eight of the players are sophomores, indicative of the sweeping hunt for new material. The squad as a whole, though. Schmidt believes, will prodite a more mobile unit to execute his intricate ball-handling plays. Give up razzle dazzle? Not Schmidt. | Why through! the summer, the | Buck players have been "boning" over 20 plays, most of them of the trick variety, and some of which Schmidt picked up watching basketball games last winter. The appearance of Johnny Rabb, the j team's biggest ground-gainer iwn'l years ago. in good playing condition, .-•heel a bright ray on the outlook. The slippery running Barberton, O.. j youth was out of action yast year! because of a knee injury. i Rabb'll get plenty of competition at ! his old fullback post, though, from plunging James Langhurst of Willard O.. who grabbed the ground gaining laurels last season. Schmidt thinks possibly he can work them both into his backfield, with Johnny at a half- hack spot. Typical of the coaching staff's attitude was Line Coach Ernie Godfrey's reply to which would be the toughest team to beat. "Missouri." he said, "and all after that."

McKNGIIT AP Feature Service DALLAS. Texas.—The nation's football critics, a gullible lot. thoughtfully wrapped up the Southwest Conference title, a Rose Bowl lark and a couple of All-American positions and handed them to Rice Institute last season—on Sept. 1. Nothing could happen. It was all set. Rice merely had to make an ap- t-earance every Saturday afternoon to carry out the deal. Death, ill fortune and an incredibly large amount of injuries slipped into the picture. Mighty Rice stumbled through a season in which it won only four games, lost six. Fullback Jack Vestal died in mid-season. But potentialities remained in the shambles of a ruinous season—so Rice Institute still looms as a Southwest power and coaches over the seven- Mississippi Griilders UNIVERSITY, Miss. — There's all kinds of tradition behind the Mississippi t'ootbali team this year.

Back for their final year are two of the Sotithwest's greatest players- Ernie Lain and Olic Cordill, a pair of breath-taking backs. Loaded with material and out-standing men of experience at each position Rice, with its combination of Lain's passing and plunging and Cordill's unmatched kicking and broken fielding, certainly looks dangerous. The. need of better quarterbacking may arise, however, and veteran ends were graduated. Tough Schedule Too. the schedule is tough. Other than the usual rugged Southwest Conference competition, the Owls meet Fordham. Vamlerbilt and Loiiisami State. Dope usually lasts until the kickofi in the Southwest Conference but the signs point to four teams—Southern Methodist. Texas Christain, Arkansas and Texas A. and M.—kicking up the most dust around Rice's wobblv first ranking. What of Texas Christain. the undefeated winners of last fall and conquerors of Carnegit Tech in the Sugar Bowl. Stripped of Quarterback Davey O'Brien and Center Ki Aldrich, two Ail- Americans, and Tackle I. B. Hale, the Chri.st.ains couldn't be as rowdy as they were last year, in the opinion of Coach Leo Meyer, but "we'll be up there scrapping around in the first division." Successor to O.Brien inII be Jack Odle, a 187-pound boy who can throw lots of football and kick more. The fight in Philadelphia, is u good enough referee to be dragged across the continent, but he is perhaps best remembered for his famous crack after he halted the Max Schmeling-Young Stribling bout in Cleveland in 1931. "Why did you stop it " asked boxing writers. "Only a few seconds were left." '•Gentlemen," replied the beteran official, "I'm a referee, not a timekeeper." Prize Autographs NEW YORK-Mrs. John McCraw, wile of the late manager of the New- York Giants, has the signature of George V on u baseball, and through the aid of Ambassador Joseph Kennedy, hopes to have George VJ's signature added to the cover.
