HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS PAGE FIVE Football Fans 500 Turn Out for Practice Session Team Makes Preparations for Opening Came With Haynesville By LKONAUI) KI.LIS Between 40(1 and 500 fans watched, the Hope High School football squad) BO through a scrimmage session Tucs- | day night in preparation for the opening grid game of the season Friday night at Haynesville, La. The probable starting lineup against Haynesville, dressed in brilliant red uniforms, look the field against a white-shirled team. For an hour and a half the Iwo learns scrimmaged, Hie red learn slressing offensive tactics. Occasionally the ball was given to the while-shirled Icam which was unable to make much headway in advancing the ball toward the goal line. tf.trf.iiK Murkfii'ld From this writer's viewpoint, it appeared that Tommy Samuels, 150- pound Quarterback, will be the key man of the Bobcat offense. He runs, kicks and fires short and Ion;; passes with speed and accuracy. Stationed in the backfield with Samuels is "nub" Daniels. ISO-pound fullback, who looks potent in off-tackle blasts at the line; Joe Kason at right- half, only veteran of last year's learn, who also smashes the line and is a capable passer. Baker and Coleman are making bids for a backfield berth. Roth arc shifty, fast, and will see plenty of action when the season gels underway. Showing brilliantly in early season drills is Hoy Taylor, one of the finest looking centers in Hope High School history. Work during the summer months has rounded this 170-pound dark-skinm.'d yi-uth near the peak of condition, lib performance Tuesday night wa.<: heartening to Bobcat supporters. Coach Hammons would be greedy if he asked for a better center. Two fine guards were lost last year when Wood row Parsons and G. V. Keith graduated—but present now are Dean Parsons and Quimby. Dean is an experienced man and appears to be set in that position. Quimby is inexperienced, but shows indications of holding down his position. Tackles Question Mark DO YOU KNOW - ? Glimpse of Bobcat Team in Action The tackle positions are somewhat of a question mark. Filling the holes left .by Freeman Stone and Grady Quimby, lost through graduation, is a problem that has not been definitely settled. "Tar/an" Green and Major Simpson will probably be the starters this season. Several candidates are after the end positions. Ellen and Fulkerson appear to have first call at \he present time. Whether Ihey will continue there remains to be seen as Coach Hammons has announced that the line is not definitely settled except possibly in two places. Individually, rhe boys look like they it;" collectively the team could use some more fire and dash which usually comes after the first or second game. The team will be sent through a brisk session Wednesday afternoon with a light drill scheduled for Thursday.

The Bucks have a new coach this season and they are reported strong and pointing for the Camdcn game. This will be the first game in the completed stadium und a record crowd is expected. Coach Sam Coleman and Assistant Coach Gus Ellis drove the Panthers hard Monday and several boys looked good in the rough going. Handicapped by the loss of two starters from this year's team and a complete backfield of last year, the coaches must build an offense around only one veteran, Clyde (Nub.) Smith. Smith however played in tin- line and has never lettered in the backfield. His brother, Lafayette earned his letter last year .and was counted on as 11 starter this year, is handicapped by illness. But Brown, Mann, McKennon, and H. While who played at end lust year, have been showing up well and will see action Friday. Other boys are fighting hard for places the spirit of the learn this year is one of the best in history. In the line, Allen, at center, Guttrey and Taylor at guards; McGuire anil Stodder at tackles; Greening and Thornton at ends i look like starters.

Discussing this season's Panthers, which generally are expected to mop up in general, the good doctor complains that they will have no replacements to speak of. "1 shudder to think what will happen to us if anybody gets hurt," shudders the large Scotsman. "Offhand, I would say that, due to lack of re- f.ervists, we aren't as good as we were a year ago." Dr. Sutherland asserts that Goldberg, is playing fullback only because he hasn't anybody else. Goldberg Would Me Sub "Fortunately he's willing," explains the doctor. "He won't of course, be able to break into the open so much as from half and he'll have a lot more things to do. But he's got plenty -of drive, and we may be able to do something with him off tackle.

And he was only a substitute last sea.-ion." Cassiano only scored seven touchdowns and gained 820 yards from By HARRY GRAYSON Sports Editor, NEA Sen-ice PITTSBURGH-Dr. John Bain Sutherland doesn't believe that there is the interest in football of former days at the University of Pittsburgh. "No material any more," says the famous coach, amid his first good cry of the campaign. "Our freshman teams have won only three games of their last eight. Nobody coming up from them. "We did get Barshnll Goldberg's brother, Bill, this fall. He's not quite as tall as Marshall, but he's a bit huskier. Too bad, isn't it, that they couldn't have played one year to- serimmage in his 1937 appearances. Yet Dr. Sutherland professes to believe that Cassiano may not be so good. "Last season Cassiano looked fail- when we stuck him in for Goldberg," he says. "But I think that was because the opposition subconsciously let down defensively when it saw Goldberg leave, and that it didn't function so smoothly against Cassiano." Dr. Sutherland asserts that Goldberg would play tackle or scrub guard if his coach asked him to. He's the .most unspoiled boy for the fame he has achieved that 1 ever saw," says the doctor. "His home town, Elkins, W. Va., gave a party for him last winter. We all went down. His dad has big home. There must have been 200 people there. We arrived before Goldberg. Just Squirt at Home "We're standing around talking with his- clad and three older brothers when the kid himself shows up. "He had no more than stuck his nose in the mom when one of his brothers piped up: 'Hey, kid there's a suit of mine ready at the cleaners. Dash down and pick it up right away." Marshall didn't say around . . a word just wheeled and away he went after the clothes. He may be an All-America at Pitt, but he's just the young squirt at home." Getting back to his current squad, Dr. Sutherland says that he has only 50 athletes and that a lot of them couldn't make a high school team. "And you can't play kids full time," lie explains. "They lose interest. The game becomes a drag. You have to rest them 10 or 15 minutes a half to give them new pep."
