Intense Worlc^acesJCandtdate for Bobcat Football Machine First Practice to Be HeldThursday The Opeing Game With ' Haynesville Is Orily Two Weeks Away The 1938 edition of the'Hope High School, football team will start the ball rolling in earnest in the first practice • session Thursday afternoon. Coach Foy Hammons, in issuing the call'fo rpractice, said his team was due for some rough going at the start of the season as the opening game is only 15. days away. i The Bobcats clash with the strong Havnesvillc, La., team al Haynesville September 1G. -Following the opening clash, the Bobcats bump into the strong Clarksville, Ark., team at Hope the following Friday. A glance at the schedule reveals among other things.lhat not a "breather" is-listed anywhere. H will be tough sliding from the stnrt to the finish on Thanksgiving Day at Pine Bluff. "Breather" games have faded from the gridiron picture—anyway "breathers" are uninteresting at the best. They appear to be nothing more than signal drill for the top-nolcher and often result in the smallest school having half its squad laid up for repairs—leaving fans at bolh ends none too satisfied. Coach Hammons, in a brief interview Thursday morning, said thai he believed at least half of his men were In "pretty good condition" having worked during the summer months. Others have played Softball to gel inlo condilion. Inlense work is planned by Coach Hammons and his assistant Bill Brasher with possibly a "tune-up battle between two picked squads before Ihe team goes to Haynesville. Prospects '.or a winning team appear on'the surface lu be bright despite the fact thai lasl year's entire line and three or four backfield men have gone the way of all good seniors—graduation. Hammons has an array of malerial, mostly "green," and that's Ihe reason hard work i& planned from Ihe slart in an effort to whip the squadron into a combination thai will be able to hurdle this year's energetic schedule which follows: Sept. 1C—Haynesville at Haynesyille. Sept. 23— Clarksville at Hope. Sept. 3ft—Smackover at Smackover. Oct. 7—Dequeen at Hope. Oct. 14— Jonesboro at Hope. Oct. 21—Nashville at Nashville. Oct. 28—Camden at Hope. Nov. 4—Blytheville at Hope. Nov. 11—Prescotl at Hope. Nov. 18—Hot Springs at Hot Springs. Nov. 25—Pine Bluff at Pine Bluff.

Bill DeLancey, who handled the Ocan • brothers. in the St. Louis > Cardinals' phenomenal drive and caught every inning of their winning world scries of 1934, has a spirit lhat won't be crushed. DeLancoy landed in Phoenix flat on his back in January, 193GI They carried him from the train on a stretcher. The Greensboro, 'N. 'C., boy was stricken with plurisy two weeks after the close of the 1935 campaign. He was in bed for eight months. DeLancey is making his comeback as manager of the Albuquerque Cardinals, an Arizona-Texas League Class. D, club which is a member of the St. Louis Nationals' farm system. Day in and day out., he takes his coaching position, al third base. DeLnnccy made his first appearance as an active combatanl since 1935 in early Augusl when he entered a game in El Paso as a pinch-hitler. He swatted the ball to the wall, driving in two runs lhat won for his outfit, 10-8. The blow was-good for at leasl Iwo bases, bul^ guarding against strain, he ran only to first. He has appeared in three or four other games as a pinch-hitter, and once, when his aggregation was hopelessly behind the Bisbee Bees, he pitched one and one-third innings lo give relief to 1111 overworked staff. He finished this game at shortstop. He has an average of .500 for his few limes at. bat'with his Cactus League team. May Catch Next Spring DeLancey lias no intention of getting behind the plate this season, but there is a chance lhat lie may hop back in harness next spring. "I'm feeling better all the time," he says. "I'll be back up there in two or three years if I keep improving like I have. Why, last winter on my :-nnch near Phoenix I lifted -heavy sacks of feed and didn't feel it at all." .Over the public address system at Tingley Field, Albuquerque, the other night, Brunch Rickey, director of the far-flung St. Louis Cardinal system, told fans thai "since the parent club losl Bill DeLancey it hasn't had a catcher who could handle pitchers like him. That's why we haven't won a championship since." DeLancey took charge of the Albuquerque club last season. Players shipped him by the St. Louis Cardinals tared poorly thoughout the first half of the campaign. But DeLanccy's pro- teges set.the loop afire in the second half . . , ended the season in a tie with El Paso, a New York Yankee farm. A single play-off game was booked, and the desert Red Birds won it. They then surprised their supporters by solved if the lenders on bolh sides are men and women of integrity.—Dr. Charles J. Turck, of the Presbyterian Board of Christian Education. I'm disgusted with night life.—Viola Mann, 24, of Chicago, shortly before a policeman dissuaded her from a suicide attempt. Bill DeLancey, grout young catcher of the St. Louis Cardinals in 19.14-35 comes back on the sciithwesl desert. capturing the circuit's Iirst pennant by repelling'El Paso in four out of seven games. They got there without the services of several regulars lost in the stretch run due to injuries and illness. Cardinal Star Cut Down Albuquerque once more started slowly in the first half this trip, but warmed up in the second. It now is waging u spirited scrap with Bisbee, a Chicago Cub branch, for the second-half title. ' It v/ns tragic to have DeLancey cut down before he had reached his peak. Up to this season, the fiery backstop, who broke into professional ball at the age of 17, has been with four championship arrays and one runner- up in seven years. He beat out the veteran Virgil Davis for the first string job with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1934, when he balled .310 in 93 games. He hit .279 in 103 games in 1935, swatted a long ball, and was a remarkable receiver. The fans of Albuquerque like DeLancey's style of ball, too. The Cactus Cardinals have played to more than 50,000 persons at home already this season. Bill DeLancey, who is married and has a 4-year-old daughter, Doris Ann, is pleased to be on his way back to complete health. But he won't be completely satisfied until he is back with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Uniforms were issued Tuesday and the coach said he expected about 25 men to report for the first workout. He .said the squad would probably be increased to 30 or 35 with the opening of school next Monday. Criswell and his assistant,. Al Harris, are faced with the task of building a team with only seven lettermen back in the lineup from last season. Graduation drew heavily on the team last year.

Pirates, Giants Split Two Games Pittsburgh Sails on Toward National League Pennant FITTSBURGH-(/P)-Before a crowd of 43,586 largest ever to turn out for a regular season engagement in Forbes Field, the Pirates marched on toward the National League pennant Wednesday by splitting a doubleheader with the second-place New York Giants. The New Yorkers took a nip-and-! tuck opener decision, 6 to 5, on an unearned run in the ninth, but the Pirates came back with a 16-hit barrage behind Red Lucas' eight-hit pitching, .or a lopsided 12 to 8 victory in the nightcap. The split gave the Bucs two of the three tilts played in the current four- Same series and left them with a 6'A same lead over the Giants. After staging an uphill fight in the opener, l o tie a 5-all in the seventh inning, the BUCK kicked the game away in the final frame. Jolinny McCarthy jpencd with a single and brought the deciding run all the way around on the combination of an error by Lee nundley, who threw a double-play ball into right field, and a passed ball, .harged to Al Todd. The nightcap was just a pushover for Pittsburgh. Red Lucas got off to a .shaky start, giving up two runs in the iirst. After that, however, the only run off him was Mel Oil's homer in the- eighth. Master Mel also wliacked one in the opener, boosting his total lor the season to 30. The Pirates started off with three runs in the first, hud two other three- run innings, and set their own pace all the way. Johnny Rizzo led the attack with a pair of singles and his 14th lonier of the year, driving three runs across. tandincfl Hope Softball League Clubs Bruner-Ivory Williams Lumber CCC Camp 'Geo. W.

Hank also clouted a pair of doubles and drove in three runs. Dixie Walker helped the Tiger cause with a homer, and Tommy Henrich knocked out his 20th of the year for the Yanks. The Tigers got away from the barrier fast, scored ten runs off Rookie Steve Sundra in Ihe first four innings and coasted in from there. Despite that wide early lead, however, the Tiger itarler, Alton Benton, was unable to hold out against the Yanks, and was relieved by Vernon Kennedy as the New Yorkers threatened in the fourth.

CHICAGO —(/P)— Four touchdowns, two of them on intercepted passes, were more than Washington's .Redskins could match Wednesday night and the collegiate all-stars swamped the professional football champions £8 to 16, in the highest scoring splurge cf the five year old series. Thus the all-stars, selected by -the fans in a nation-wide poll, defeated the professional champions for the second year in a row. A year ago'it was the Green Bay Packers who were vanquished 6 to 0. . ' * A near capacity crowd of 74,250 spectators sat thrilled in floodlighted Soldier Field watching the collegians, vastly superior in manpower, outrush and to a great extent outplay the professional champions. Coach Alvin Bo McMillin, of- the Collegians, used 48 players from' .his squad of 66 to score the victory, which was classed as a distinct surprise '.by followers of professional football. , The Washington Red Skins, famous for their passing type of game,'With their aerial genius, Slinging Simmy Btugh, as the pitcher, found this kind of play the boomerang that brought about their defeat. Intercepted passes by the alert All-Stars, resulted : not only in two touchdown runs, but also put them in position to score an-easy tield goal. The collegians revealed a forward passing artist in Cecil Isbell, former Purdue star, who succeeded in matching Baugh's artistry in hurling the pigskin. He tossed one touchdown shot for 40 yards, and overshadowed the efforts of the famed Byron "Whizzer" White of Colorado, who was tossed into the game as Isbell's relief.
