Monday, September 5, 1938 HOPE STAR, ttOt>E, ARKANSAS SPOJ California Lost Heavily, But Bears Are^ar From Weak By JERKY BKONFfEU) NE A Service Sports Writer The Golden Bears no lunger have" Sam Chapman, John Meek, Bob Hei-] wig, Vurd Stockton, Perry SchwaiU and Claude Evans, but west coast folks refuse to be taken in by this wholesome departure of talent Fans howled lustily when Stub Alli- ion yanked his regulars so frequently a year ago, but Allison knew what he was doing. He maneuvered his squad so expertly that his 1938 club will go to war with just as much experience as its championship predecessor. Those second urn! third stringers of last season were given an opporounity to absorb so much experience that there s no question about their qualifications as first line performers. There are enough holdover regulars to make u whale of a nucleus. Heading the list is Vic Bottnri, the Vnlejo hot-shot who is expected to be the best ballcarrier on the golden slope thi.s year. In addition to his leather-lugging activities, Botarri also will handle the bulk of the Bears' aerial assignments ami kick. Meek and Chiipinan Are Toughest to Keplacv Dave Anderson continues where he left off at fullback, which was full steam ahead, and Will Dolman, a devastating blocker, remains at left end. Dave deVarona and Bill Stoll Uike over their tackle posts, leaving Allison to fill both guards, center nnd one end. Competing for the wing vacated' by Schwartz will be lettermen, Paul Scm- mens and Bob Wilhelm. Leading the race for the guard sluts, formerly occu- ! pied by Stockton and Evans, are Tommy Ray, Jim McDuniel, Bill Plasch, Ray Han ford and Angelo Reginuto. Ralph Sauer, Jack Brceden, nnd Perk Stone, lettermen all. arc vicing for Bob Her wig's center job. The biggest tusk will be to replace Meek nnd Chnpmnn at quarter and right half, respectively. Bud Winterbottom and Bill Hutcrs should do all right in the signal-calling position, while Lou Smith is expected to be quite n back before he's through at Berkeey. It takes a wise coach to handle material so that experienced hands are available year after yeuer. California fans who grumbled at Allison a year ago probably will bo the ones to shout his praises the loudest in 1938. , Fordham, Ohio State and Duke Lack Lines Captain Jim McGoldrick of Notre Dame comes by his football naturally . . . his father played fullback for the Donegal Celtics in Ireland. Coast critics are of the opinion that if Bill Spalding's job will be saved for him ut U. C. L. A. this fall, it will be Kenny Washington, 190-pound negro halfback, who will do the saving. . . . It was Washington, you remember, who tossed that 66-yard pass to Hal Hirshon against Southern California last year. Great backfiekls doomed to operate behind mediocre lines this year: Fordham, G'hio Stale, and Duke. The eyes of Texas are on Dick Todd, Texas A. & M. halfback, who is receiving the Lone Star state's early- season buildup for All-America. Frank Kocsis, Florida guard and co- captain who is considered quite a her- pitologist, siwnt his summer in the Everglades catching reptiles . . . Too bad he isn't a back . . . He might have snake hips. NEW YORK-Statistlcs reveal it takes an average of 7.5 batsmen to score a run in the National League.

Out of Flag Race PITTSBURGH—Bill Terry admits that the outlook for a pennant this year as fur as his New York Giants are concerned is dismal. This despite the fact that the Pittsburgh Pirates haven't been in any hurry to increase their lead. "It's way too late," remarks Terry. "In fact we're thankful that only five more weeks remain. It would be tough if we had to go through the bulk of a season in the shape we're in." Losing Carl Hubbel was bad enough, without having Hal Schumacher's arm go bad at practically the same time. Schumacher has returned to form, however. Even if Pittsburgh continued to stagger, Terry doubts that the Polo Grounders have sufficient mound strength to take advantage of breaks that may enable either the Chicago Cubs or Cincinnati Reds to beat out tlie Buccaneers. "If the Reds can get several more victories out of Lee Grissom they'd lave a chance," asserts Terry. By Art Krenz?
