^ xft ,i « MOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Oklahoma Rejects Cotton Bowl Game '', "Injuries Among Squacl / Factor in Turning r ' Down Offer NORMAN, Okla. -W- Injuries which had a hand in Oklahoma's *"' gridiron defeats by Missouri and Ne- braski, Thursday knocked the Soon- eta out of the Cotton Bowl game. ' Oklahoma was invited to be the host team in the New Year's Day contest at Dallas, Tex., but Coach Tom Stidham announced the invitation had been rejected because the Sooners would not be "at full strength." "Our team has had a hard season against strong teams," he said after a conference with President W. B. Bizzell. "Some of the men on the team are not in condition to participate in another game this season." How much the game might have fattened the university's athletic fund, only those on the inside know. In a previous "feeler." Cotton Bowl promoters were reported to have dangled $85,000 in front of Tcnnesse in an attempt to match the Vols with Texas A.4M. The injury which weakened the Sooners most was that of Bob Saymour hard-hitting senior fullback who was hurt in the first minute of the Mis- ! souri game and was of little value to L the club the rest of the day. Stidham said university heads felt Oklahoma participation might detract from Missouri's prestige as Big Six champion arid Orange Bowl repre- i sentative. Boston College Accepts Offer NEWTON, Mass. — iff}— The Boston College football team accepted an invitation Thursday to meet an unnamed opponent in the Cotton Bowl game on New Year's Day at Dallas, Tex. Boston College climaxed its most sue cessful season in years last Saturday by beating its arch rival. Holy Cross, 14-0. The Eagles won nine games and lost one, an upset 7-0 defeat by Florida early in the season. Their imposing record was compiled under Frank Leahy in his first year as head coach.

S,ofEiirope" Suspicious of British Motives in "Peace" Program By PRESTON GROVER WASHINGTON — Yankee statesmen see really solid ground under the widely discussed plan for a European Federation based on economic factors^ rather than on a purely political basis. They would like to believe it would work. It has at least the advantage of a different approach, one based on \ assuring adequate bread and butter rather than on so-called national inspirations. Two things keep , Americar.s from j whooping up too-eager enthusiasm for | the idea. j First is a deep-set belief that European peoples are determined to have their quarrels regardless of the general welfare. Second js the fact that it is being advanced primarily by England, and therefore, in Jhe eyes of many, should be'.scrutinized closely. It is popular and politically important just now to look first for propaganda and only later for facts .in any proposal from "Perfidious Albion." Chamberlain Hopes Chamberlain's speech sounded for a paragraph or so as if he had his eye on Secretary Hull. "In such a Europe," said Chamberlain, speaking of the "new Europe" he hoped would grow out of the war, "it would be recognized that there can be no lasting peace unless there is a full and constant flow of trade between the nations for only by increased interchange of goods and services can the standard of living be improved." Continuing in the same vein, he said: "In such a Europe, fear of aggression will have ceased to exist, and such adjustments of boundaries as would be necessary would be threashed out between neighbors sitting on equal terms around a table, with the help of disinterested third parties if it were so desired." Oft-Tried Idea Europe has been looking for a federation of some sort for a dozen generations. The Catholic Church tried 'for several hundred years to fend off the break up into tight little nationalities. The Holy Roman Empire, with a far less noble motive, sought By NBA Service I NEW YORK — The American Waltz ' or waltzing in group formation is the newest dance idea. And, appropriat- ! ely enough, it's done to the strains ' ot Peter de Rose's "American Waltz." i According to Arthur Murray, danc- ; ing instructor who created the dance, : the couples form a large circle on , the dance floor, then each girl starts '. waltzing to the right with her own partner. Characteristic Novelty i At. the end of 16 bars, she moves ahead to the next man, continuing to waltz music until she returns to her ! original partner. The entire circle con- I tinues to waltk for another 16 bars, i The the music takes on a double- ' ed Viennese tempo, and the teams j reverse to the left, all keeping their j original partners, pivoting and at the ! end finishing with a charming 18 th I century drawing room cursty to the; floor. . i Peter and Polly in Toyland *£"% r Chapter 1 1 —Trouble Breaks Loose A Christmas Adventure With Santa Glaus Prescott, Blevins j Detect Spikes in Open Cage Season j Logs at Sawmills OH, SANTA!
