Greenwood blasted it's way back into the running last night with a 10-hit 8 to 2 victory over Iho Bath- ~TS. A struck batsman, George Boston's triple, third sackcr Bob Kremcn's double and Catcher .otiis Landini's single gave the Dodgers a three-run fourth inning and 3 to 1 load at that point.

Cotton Loop Title fro Be .' 'This is Ihe third of a series discussing Southwest Confer- once foutiiall prospects.) By HAROLD V. RATI.IFF Houston, Tex.. Sept. 11 --I/P) — Look for passes and more passes as the Rice Owls make their bid for Ihe Southwest Conference fool- ball championship this year. Everyone picked them lo win :ast year and they lost oul before the season was half ove^r. This time they're nol on the spot and the schedule is favorable. They do not appear quite as strong as they were in 19'17 but they should have a better chance of 1 coming through. q The greatest array of passers in ' Ihe school's football history makes the Owls potential high-pointers, slower, than usual, their ground game may not be up to average, and they look weaker on defense. But it's likely to take plenty of touchdowns to lick them. Rico has 19 leticrmcn including a couple who won their numerals before 1947. Lasl year's veterans include two deep at end and three deep at center. Starling tackles and guards are good, but reserve strength at these positions is difficult to gauge. Coach Jess Necly says his most telling losses are three strong defensive backs— Hal Stockbridgc, Dick Hocrster and Don Anderson. Necly places Ihcsc above Ihe loss of Carl Russ, a great fullback in 1946 who was slowed down by an injury much of last season. Russ became scholastically ineligible. From the line wont All-Conference Guard J. W '.Magec and two fine tackles, Henry Armstrong and Jim Spruill. They left those positions pretty thin for 1048. Tobin Roto, spark of tho Rice- mid-season surge last year; Vernon Glass, talented sophomore: Harmon Cars well, the former Lufkin high school all-starter who was injured la-si year, and Charley 'Easter, two-year squadman. furnish Ihe quadruple pass threat. Hucv Keency, playing his fourth varsity year, is one of the greatest punters in the country. Role is one of the finest backs in the conference. Ncely says that, too. Glass might well be the sensation of the campaign. He docs everything. He is, of course, untested in conference competition. James i Froggy) Williams, Nick Lanza, Jack McBride and Bill Taylor are letlermcn returning at end. Three lotlermcn are back at tackle—Billy Wyman, Ed Parker and 'Ralph Murphy. Three lotlermcn also arc available al guard. They arc Tom Parsons, S. J. Huberts and Carl Schwnrz. No other .squad in the conference boasts as many top centers as hice. Joe Watson, a 242-poundcr who made all-conference in a walk last season: Gerald Weathcrlyl and Jack Price, are a fearsome threesome in the middle of the line. Rice has a leHerman at each backficld spot. Aside from Glass, backfield reserve strength will come from sqnadmcn. Rote is tho starting quarterback, Keency the left halfback and Harold Ril'ey the right halfback. John Kelly is rclurning,ilettcrman fullback may not play as much as Bobby Lantrip, who has been the squad two years. Ncely likes squadman Van Ballard at left half and expects major backin" for Riley at right half jfrom Gather Pugh and Don Campbell, !f>47 squacfmcn, and sophomore Gordon Wyatt.

A climax is expected this week. Talks started hero at. the end of •July ; iitl were shifted afler a month to the military governors of Russia, the U. S." Britain and Frane.e in Berlin.

Adams. Livestock consume this feed directly from the ground, the agent points out. There is no expense or risk involved in harvesting and storing and no labor involved in feeding.

They should oo fertilized with 3(10 to 4UU pounds of complete ferlilizcr per acre, or 300 pounds of 20 per "cCat i superphosphate at seeding time, and top-dressed with 10 to 32 pounds of actual nitrogen as soon as the grain comes up. Rye grass overseeded on fertile permanent pasture and fertilized with nitrogen fertilizer also gives paying results. Rye grass over- seeded on permanent sod can be utilized when small grain areas arc loo wel lo graze. Hence, a combination of both small grain and rye grass will provide more days of grazing. Counly Agent Adams also emphasizes that small grain provides winter cover for siio, thereby checking erosion and maintaining soil fertility. crnors' Berlin talks, along with data concerning meetings held in technical committees.
