By JRKKY RHONDPIKM) NKA Service Sports Writer Mike, the royal Ijcngal tiger, has grown up into a strapping, fearsome bonst this past year, and they'll lull you, down in the bnyou country, Unit the Louisiana Slntu Tigers, just like their famed mascot, have taken on proportions just us rilnrrnlng. In short, Beruic Moore is snid to have everything a conch would want nt Baton Rouge, nntl barring a run of injuries on other sad circumstances, Louisiana State should, with one possible exception, be the best in Dixie. Thnt one exception is Alabama, lust season's Rose Bowl runnerup, who also packs 11 big pre-season punch. On Komi in the Tigm- lair as 22 lel- termen—10 seniors and 12 juniors— which give Moore two complete teams of veteran tiilenl, backed up by some mighty promising sophomore material. Pinky Aohni was the big boss from the bnckfield, inn Moore still has a . i vji i v in KM 11 if, \i \ grand quartet in Barrett Booth, Cot- ( , oc k s ' ch'inccs and he'll pice a versatile backficU which will have a line averaging close to 200 pounds in front of it. The loss of Dutch Konelnnnn nnc Fletcher Sims from Georgia Tech' backfield weakens the Rmnblin Wreck appreciably. Georgia, will Joel Hunt new at the couching reins will be much stronger than n year ugr Mississippi is a question mark wit too many sophomores battling for |xi sitlons. while Mississippi .State is bus. rebuilding and can't be expected t show a lot until next year. Tin-heels Should Hnvc Lt-tilown Ah Kirwnn, new at Kentucky, wil consider himself lucky if his club hit. the .500 mark in 1938. Florida is def initely on the upgrade. North Carolina is due for a sligh letdown from the heights it altuinei hist fall, but the Tarheels will b dangerous throughout. North Carolina State is stamped will mediocrity. Clemson is liable to sur prise everyone concerned with a well balanced club. South Carolina also i rebuilding under Rex Knright, so n one is going overboard on the G:ime Pine Bluff and Blytheville Grid Game Friday to Top Conference Play This Week; Bobcats Meet Clarksville Stell, and Eussey, the latter being groomed to take Rohm's place in the important tail-back post. Ends, Tackles I'li'nty Strong Both Bussey and Stell are excellent runners and passers, and will give the Tigers plenty of offensive threat, while Booth is considered the best linebacker in the south. Milncr, who underwent an appendectomy lust spring, is the only question mark. Four first-rate ends return from a year ago anil two of the outstanding tackles in the .south—Ben Friend and Eddie Galto—will form a powerful nucleus for a line averaging well over 200 [jounds. Taking a more comprehensive squint nt Alabama reveals that Frank Thomas lost Joe Kilgrow in the backfield and All-America Lc-roy Mon.sky in the line, but there the damage ends. Still present are line-battering Charley Hoi mat full, George Zivich at one half, and Vic Bradford at quarter. Herkey Mosley, smallish but versatile, will fill Kilgrow's spot. Tut Warren and Perron Shoemaker, ends, and Cupt. Lew Bostick head a line, which although is as strong as Louisiana State's, does not have as ir.uch reserve power. Duke would have been a lot better off had not George McAfee, potentially the best all-round buck in the south, suffered a foot injury this summer, but Wallace Wade's Blue Devils must still be feared. Eric Tipton returns for his last and biggest year in the backfield, and the line will be strong enough but not up to the 1!)37 standard. Vainly, Tennessee Need Linemen Auburn may be considered the Dixie dark horse, and if Jack Meagher can find some reserves for the middle of the line— his wcuk spot—the Plainsmen will do all right. Tennessee and Vanderbilt are beset by the same difficulty—plenty of good backs available, but no line to clear the way. Down nt New Orleans they say that Buddy Banker, Tulane's big sophomore halfback, will be belter than his All-American brother, Billy. If he lives up to expectations the Green Wave, which was only a trickle lusl year, may be a tidal wave in 1938. Banker is ;i 190-pound triple-thrca' Maryland and Virginia arc preparing for 11)39, which means this year's road will be a bumpy one—but there'll be plenty more in the same fix. NEXT: Tin; midwest tn wa By Rodney Dutcher WASHINGTON-If you don't like the way the monopoly investigation goes, blame the Yule Law School! Assistant Attorney General Thurman Arnold, in charge of anti-trust cases and Department of Justice member of the Temporary National Economic Committee, is a professor on leave from the school. Arnold has his own clean working for him this summer—Dean Charles E. Cbrk of Yale Law School, who helps with Arnold's regular work and in Ilia monopoly inquiry. Although Arnold temporarily is Clark's boss, Clark will y.e boss again when Arnold returns to New Haven. Why Not Move the Campus? Walton Hamilton, Yale professor of business, public and constitutional law, was recruited by Arnold to locate and outline trouble spots where the business system doesn't function. George Dession, professor of criminal law at Yale, will stage-manage the first monopoly hearings. Allan Hart, former faculty member, is handling the "group medicine" anti-trust case against the District Medical Society and the American Medical Association. Half n dozen young lawyers who were graduated with Arnold and an unknown number of law school students are "dollar a year" men. Also on leave from the law school is Chairman William O. Douglas of SEC, a monopoly committee member. SEC Commissioner Jerome Frank is a former lecturer at the school. A Douglas right-hand man is Abe Fortas. resigned from the faculty to handle administration of the holding company act. Roger Foster of SEC is another former faulty member. Arnold, Clark, Hamilton, Douglas and Frank all have been publicly mentioned as Supreme Court possibilities. LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—W 1 )—The Arkansas high school football conference will rush right into championship play Friday when eight of the its 15 members, who just started active competition lust Friday night, tangle in a quartet of games which can give the sideline experts something to mull over the rest of the season. Perhaps the number one game, as far as statewide interest goes is the game between the Blytheville Chicks, top- seeded in most pre-.sea.son prognostications, an dlhc defending champion Pine Bluff Zebras at Pino Bluff. The Chicks showed power-lo-spare in thcr opening game by trampling Piggott 73 to 0. The Zebras raised the hopes of their followers with a convincing 30-0 victory over a none- loo-easy McGchee team. Coach Foy Hammons' Hope Bobcats will liave a busy evening Friday when they entertain Clarksvillc's Panthers. The Bobcats displayed a great defense in addition to their usual good uffcn.se last week by stopping- Haynesville, one of Louisiana's ranking elevens. 9 to 7. The Panthers rolled over 0/nrk 44 to 0. Russellville, conqueror of Dardnnolle 70-0 last week, will afford North Little Rock plenty of opposition in the North Side stadium where the Wildcats whipped Brinkley 51-0 in the opener. The fourth conference game brings together the Forrest City Thoroughbreds and Bcnton. Forest City played Humus Hi of Memphis to a 0-0 dead- j lock in the opener while Benton Irouccd Beebe 31-12. Other games involving conference members: Little Rock nt home with Muskogee, Oklahoma. Camden nt Nashville. Forclyce at home with Bearden. Hot Springs at home with Malvern.

Tails You Win, Ears You Win Lovell H. Parker, 12 year chief of staff for the congressional joint committee on taxation, has resigned to become a private tax consultant. Mos senators and representatives claiming to know much about taxation owe their reputations to Parker. It was he who wrote Senator Pat Harrison's attacl on President Roosevelt's criticism o the lust-session tax measure. Parker was born in Osterville, Mass. on Cape Cod. Discussing lack of co ordination o fstate and federal tax policies, he sometimes relates a story his father told him many years ago. Muskrats were pests in the nearbj towns of Mashpee and Barnslable.

Cowboys at Fayetteville LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—UP)—Arkansas will break its nine month fast from collegiate football this week with a three course menu which promises to offer considerably more than the usual gridiron curtain raisers. The most choice morsel on the pigskin breakfast will be the game at Fayetteville Saturday between the University of Arkansas Razorbacks and the Oklahoma A. and M. Cowboys. The Porkers, minus their galaxy of last year's aerial stars but packing as much speed and a lot more heft than usual, spanked their freshmen 28 to 0 in a game length scrimmage Saturday. Pleasing to their followers was the eclat with which they tossed the ball over the baby Porkers. The game was costly in one respect, in that it robbec them of the services of Quarterback Ralph Atwood. The El Dorado junior received a shoulder injury which will keep him from the Oklahoma game. The Aggie gave their Saturday opponents something to think about Saturday night by troucing the Central College (Edmond) Teachers, Okla- home intercollegiate champs last year, 23 to 12.

Frisch had been with the Cards since 1927, and became manager midwuy in the 1933 season. ST. LOUIS. — (/P) — Joe McCarthy's New York Yankees became champions of the American League for the third straight year Sunday, but it was under embarrassing circumstances— the loss of two games to the lowly St. Louis Browns. The Brownies fought from behind in each contest to win, 4-3, and 8 to 7. A Chicago rain enabled the Yanks to mathematically clinch the 1938 flag as Boston's doubleheader with the Whie Sox was washedd off the books If the Yanks were to lose all theii remaining games and the second place Red Sox were to win all theirs, the Yanks still would be in front. However, Manager McCarthy would not permit his boys to stage the cus tomary victory "celebration" until they "really clinch the title by winning game." The twin triumph lifted the St. Louis club out of the cellar, one point in front of the Athletics, who split with Cleveland. Don Hef filer's double and Mel Al- muda's single in the seventh decided the first game, which the Yanks opened colorfully with n three-run lead sparkled by Lou Gehrig's homer. The Browns got off to a 4-0 lead in the nightcap when Harlond Clift hom- ered in the first frame with the bases loaded. Then after New York had forged ahead. 7-4, Clift crashed another homer, liis thirty-third of the season, into the left field bleachers with a man on base. This left them traling by one run as they went into their half of the ninth. But Mel Mazzera quickly tied it up with his fifth homer of the year, and a triple by Clift, two intentional passes and a passed ball brought about the final decision. Because of the large number of entries and the many events in the Southwest Arkansas tennis tournament here in Hope, first round matches will be run off Monday. Games Monday are between Lester vs. W. Taylor in boy's singles at 3 o'clock. Hill vs. Smith at 3 o'clock in women's singles and a mixed doubles game between Smith-Taylor and Hill- Young at 4:30 Monday.

The Bruner-lvory team finished >the regular schedule in top position „With a record of 14 victories against* orte defeat, a percentage mark of. .933.' Williams finished second-' with 10 victories and two defeats; a percentage- of .833. . Adoption of the Shaughnessy playoff system at a reorganization meeting which consolidated all-teams into- one league, made it possible'for four teams to compete for the last-half' title. •••'*• Bruner-lvory and- Williams eliminated the two other teams last'.week— and now enter the finals for the-last- half crown. T In the event that Bruner-lvory viins- the series_ the team then will be' forced to meet Williams again for the Saenger theater's gold trophy, and the championship of the Hope Softball- league. ' During the first half season • the' Shaughnessy system was not in affect and the Williams team took'the-' first-half title by finishing with .ttie- highest percentage of won and --lost games. In the event the Williams team wins the present two out of three game series the lumber firm team will have both the first and last half .title's and also the Saenger's gold trophy. Only one game will be played Mori- day night as efforts failed to match. two girls teams for a second game. The admission price will be 10 and 20 cents. , i Neither team manager indicated who would pitch the opening games, but in all probability the Bruner teain will send its star hurler, Roy Taylor, to the mound. Williams may send either Fike, Briant or' Sommerville. Pike, however, is the likely choice. There is some possibility that"^a 1 double-header may be played Tuesday night, depending on the outcome of the opening game Monday night; No. 3, E. Ward; No. 4; T. Keys. All matches will be two out of three' regulation sets except the finals in the men's and boy's doubles which will.ber three out of five sets. All matches will be played at- Pair park unless rain causes postponement Jack Pritchett is chairman in charge of the tournament. An encouraging note was the fact that 12 entries are: from out of town. It is hoped that next year it will he from an even greater area.
