El Dorado put over iUs two touchdowns in the second quar- twr after n brilliant aerial combat- both touchdowns coining through the air lanes. The first downs were Hope 17, El Dorado 12. The big Bobcat forward wall, turning in its best performance of the year, repulsed the El Dorado running attack like the Maginot Line. So stout was the line that only two of El Dorado's 12 first downs were roistered, tin-re reri'.'.ted from Hope penalties and the other seven were 'made through the air. Taylor Lends Attack Hoy Taylor, potential all-stater, carried the Bobcat offensive attack. He , ripped and lore through the El Dorado line and around the ends for gain after gain. He was unslopablc, proving to be just as good a "muddcr" as Sea- biscuit. Taylor, despite the rain and mud, was on the firing end of several passes. One was n payoff -15-yard heave to Bobby Ellen who look it over his shoulder on a dead run for Hope's second touchdown. Taylor also turned in his usual outstanding defensive game.

Taylor duplicated with 7 more yards in the same spot. Jimmy Daniels rammed at the center of Ihe line, going over by five yards with three Wildcats clinging on. Daniels then dropped back and kicked the ball through the uprights for the extra point. El Dorado received, returned to the .'10, where the Bobcat line stopped While, Reese and Blackwcll on three line plays. While punted to Ellen on his 40. Ellen fu'mblod and El Dorado recovered as the quarter ended. Kl Dorado Stores A 15-yard pass from Blackwcll to Smilh, IBS-pound Wildcat end, placed the ball on Hope's 25.

Outcome of War Hinges on Action of the Neutrals Major Eliot Sees Spain as Doubtful Power in Crisis SWISS, PORTUGUESE Both Are in Strategic Positions as Europe Goes to War What price neutrality? For the neutrals and the fighting nations? Famed military expert George Fielding Eliot, in the following exclusive dis patch cabled to NEA Sen-ice describes the potential role of Europe's neutrals in the present conflict. By GEORGE FIELDING ELIOT (Written for NEA Service) LONDON — Europe's neutrals loom large as factors for defeat lor vic- lory in the German campaign. Spain's neutality is a serious blow to Nazi hopes, as Spanish bases to German submarine and surface opera- lions against British trade routes and the Mediterranean and Atlantic sea routes between France and her African colonies. A hostile Spain also would force I Franco to guard the Pyrencs bordei ( against an expert and war-hardened Spanish army. With Britain's Gibrajter free from opanish threat ,-and,.a tfeutral Spanish Morocco removing-'any. .threat against French North Africa, time and resources would not be wasted in cleaning up these outlying positions. Belgium Stonger Today than In '14 Neutral Belgium is much more formidably armed than in J9H with strong fortifications along Albert canal and the Mcusc river. It has a capable air force which includes only planes for defensive fighting and few bombers. For Germany to attack Belgium would add considerably to forces opposing Hitler in the West without markedly improving Ihe Nazi slra- tegical position. On the other hand Belgium would be of little help in Ihc launching of a French attack a- gamsl Germany since Ihe Belgian frontier with Germany is very short, and German western fortifications cover Belgium and Luxembourg as well as the French border. Neutral Netherlands is another mailer. It is much more exposed to German attack, although provisions for inundation between fortifications might prove a formidable obstacle, at least delaying any German onslaught. The Dutch army is trained on a short service basis and is neither as strong nor as well equipped as the Belgian military. But Holland does offer •"id advantageous geographical position to the allies from its position >n the right bank of the Rhine. On the other hand, the Belgian Dutch neutrality, frcm the point of view of ail attacks probably offers a greater .••dvanl.-igo to Gemany than t" Britain as il protects Germany lo some extent fom iMieei attack English bases. S\vit/.erl:m<l In Ke' IVsUion Historically neutral Swilxrrlaml occupies a key position between Germany, Franco and Italy. Its army also is trained on a short-term basis. The Swiss terrain is most difficult, the mountain passes arc well fortified and the people are determined to defend desperately their traditional neutrality. U is likely that any attempt, to violate this neutrality would '••'-••si the aggressor more than the results would warrant. Startcgically important Denmark, commanding the entrance to the Baltic Sea, is in an extremely exposed position, with a very small and poorly i'f|uipp(>d army wild u navy that, could not. resist seriously a German thrust. Norway, less exposed gcographical- b. i;. somewhat better armed than Den mark. iiwcdcn is very important lo Germany because of its supply of high grade iron ore, and its munition works. But Sweden, by far the most formidable, in a military sense, of the Scandinavian countries, has a good army, equipped lo the teeth, and an excellent although small navy, in- eluding small battleships, cruisers, destroyers and submarines. Finland is in a band position because of her ling frontier with Soviet Rus• '•». always and uncertain neighbor. 'Ihe Baltic states could not long re- sit! attack either from Germany or Russia. If forced to choose, they would proler Germans to Russians any day. Portugal Is Statcgic Portugal has declared her ncutrali- l.v. though asserting fidelity to the P'itish alliance. She is not important while Spain remains neutral but would Two of A. W.

Tom Ucdfurd, game warden, says the modern-day rancher can find more cx- citins ways to a'nuise himself than hunting bears, so bears in the Fort Davis country are unmolested. Consequently there now are more than .150 blacl; or brown bears in Jeff Davis county, a "great increase." One of the ways Hcdfurd suggested ranchers now find pleasure is automobile driving "on good paved highway::." "There':; i>ii\y tv.'o packs 0 [ bear hounds left in the country," .says fied- ford.

Seek Poles' Release PARIS, France — (#)— An Influential neutral official said Saturday diplomatic efforts are being made by several nations to obtain the release, of Polish government officials from Rumania. This neutral official said the Polei charged that Rumania's action in this matter was taken under German threat to invade Rumania unless the Polish government were interned.
