Bobcat Tackle Returns to Squad Following Illness With the return of Norman "Tniv.an" Green to the lineup, the Hope High School Bobcats went to work in earnest Tuesday for their opening conference game of the season hero Friday night with the Clarksville Panthers. Green, counted on as a regular tackle, lias been ill the past few days with malaria. Illness caused him to be left at home last week when the Bobcats went to Hayncsville for their opening grid encounter of (lie season. Green lowers above six feet and weighs 190 pounds. He is playing his first year of football. Team to Be in Shape Barring injuries and sickness the balance of this week, the Bobcats will be in good condition for their first home game. The .squad came out of the Haynesville battle with a minimum of injuries and sore muscles. The squad is likely to see some rough work Tuesday and Wednesday, Conches Hanimons and Brasher said. The Bobcat mentors, although pleased with the result of the Haynesville j .'core, said that errors cropped out in the first game that must be corrected. Clurksvillu Tough The Clarksville team, headed by a veteran coach, rolled over O/ark last Friday by a score of 4-1 to 0 which indicates they have n formidable crew. Little information was available Tuesday in regard to the Panthers. Weights and the probable starting lineup is expected to be received in Hope late Tuesday or Wednesday morning. Urges Cc-»|ierntiim Coach Mammons Tuesday asked the co-operation of the public in regard to parking their automobiles at the stadium this season.

Zebra Team Holds Secret Practice Special Train to Bring Big Blytheville Delegation to Game PINE BLUFF—Coaches Dunaway and Terry had their Pine Bluff High School Zebras working behind closed gates Monday, and will continue this practice during the week in preparation for their game Friday night with the Blytheville Chicks. Dunaway said Monday night passing is a thing of the past insofar as this year is concerned, due primarily to the loss of McGibbony. The Zebras tried 18 passes Friday night against the Mc- Gchee Owls and did not complete one. Usually the Zebras work in the open until one week before the clash with the Little Rock Tigers and Dunaway's departure from this practice is the first since he has been here. The Blylheville team will arrive here Thursday and will work out at Jordan stadium that night. A special train from Blytheville with 300 fans is expected Friday afternoon. Candid camera enthusiasts shot to their hearts' content when they wore allowed on the fic-ld and in the dugouts of Sportsman's Park, St. Louis.

By JERRY BKONDFIELD NEA Service Sports Writer This is not the year of Minnesota, nor Notre Dame, nor Ohio State, in the midwest— This is the year that the gridiron scars on the nation's most vicious battlefront will .show deepest, because the power is better balanced, and the talent better distributed. That is not to say that there are no outstanding teams in the section, because the Gophers, the Irish and the Buckeyes, along with Northwestern, are geared plenty high. But the others are coming up after years of feebleness. Michigan will be stronger, Wisconsin is on the upgrade, and Illinois is returning to life in the Big Ten. while over in the Big Six, Kansas is set to make things very uncomfortable for Nebraska. Not b.v force of habit, but because of material on hand, Minnesota must be given the inside track in the Western Conference. Bernie Bierman lost two corking ends in Ray King and Dwight Rc-ed, a mighty guard in Bob Weld, and Andy Uram and Viv Spadaccini from his backfiekl. But the Gophers have plenty left. Stars Still Shining From tackle to tackle the Vikings will be rugged and rather plentiful in reserve strength. Capt. Francis Twedell is a potential All-American at guurd, while in the backfielcl will be tlte brilliant Harold Van Every, Wilbur Moore, Martin Christiansen and Larry Buhler, a couple of 200-pound fullbacks. Buhler may be shifted to a blocking quarterback post, if George Faust fails to make the grade. Muny point to Ohio State as the team to beat, but closer examination shows the Buckeyes— on paper at least— actually will be a little weaker than last year. Graduation losses included Jim McDonald, Dick Nardi and Nick Wasylik among the better back- fielders, and the entire line with the exception of tackles Alex Schoenbaum and Karl Kaplanoff. Mike Kabealo and Johnny Rabb will carry the big load in the backfield this season, with aid from a terrific 200- puund sophomore named Don Scott. What the Bucks really need is linemen, and they need them desperately. With 14 out of 20 returning lettermen listed as linemen, Northwestern ihoukl have one of the strongest forward walls in the country, while Bornie Jefferson, the colored speedster, Jack Ryan and Jay Laskay will pace the ball carriers. Tab the Wildcats as play the role of "spoilers" with clubs just good enough to knock off the lop- notchers if the enemy has an off-day, while Bob Zuppke finally will make a little headway at Illinois. Wolves In Favored Spot The wee Dutchman has some prize sophomore talent coming up and he has some beef in the line. Injuries and ineligibilitics will hurt but the Illini will make progress. Fritz Crisler starts a new deal at Michigan with some great backs in Fred Trosko and Norman Purucker, and a hangup sophomore, Tom Harmon. For the first time in five years the Wolves will be favorites to down Michigan State, who has a really great back in Johnny Pingel, but who would give plenty for a couple of tackles. The presence of Nile Kinick makes Iqwii somewhat of a threat but the Hawks lack reserves, which also can be sfcid for Purdue. Chicago is again fated to have the Big Ten cellar position, to itself. Outside the Conference Notre Dame, numerically strong, but lacking in finished performers, is the outstanding club. Elmer Layden will have a capable backfiekl but he could use better lineman than he has. Then, too. the Irish schedule will have its effect. M;:rquette could hardly do any worse than the Golden Avalanche did in 1937, and should be about 50 per uent better. Nebraska Line Gone Of that great Nebraska line of a year ago only Charley Brock remains at center, which means Biff Jones has a terrific building job ahead of him in order to retain honors in the Big Six. Kansas has 20 lettermen returning and optimism is high. If their schedule weren't so tough, Kansas Slate also might rate a favorable spot, but the Wildcats need more reserve strength than they huve, to combat Northwestern. Marquette and Indiana in addition to league foes. Oklahoma lost too much by graduation to be very formidable, but Missouri can be called the dark horse of the circuit with lettermen available at every position. Iowa State isn't figured on for much, with the line none too strong, but Oklahoma A. & M., although not in the league, is ready to make things interesting for all, with a well-balanced team that needs only a little more size to make it a title threat. NEXT: The Southwest. By HARRY GRAYSON Sports Editor, NEA Service NEW YORK—Call out the Phi Beta Kappa boys. There's going to be a lot of thinking done on the college gridirons this fall. And a lot of severe headaches on the coaches' benches. Take that on the word of Lou Little Columbia University's professor of applied gridiron science who is drilling his students these clays at Baker Field for their first recitation on October 1 in the Yale Bowl in the presence of rugged and unsympathetic; Elis and some 60,000 spectators. The game is the .first of the season for both. ,._, .. . "We've all been boasting for a long time that football was a game which demanded brain, as well as brawn, but we didn't know the half of it until last year when this craze for shifting line defenses swept the country," says Little. "This sport is getting to be a fast game of chess. We used to be able to scout a defense and know pretty much what to expect. Now we still scout them, but we've learned to expect anything and everything. College football today is certainly no place for the athlete who isn't alert and quick- thinking. "On one play, the quarterback may be facing a six-man line, on the next a five, on the third a seven. Or he may line up, ase a five-man line and, by the time the signal is called, it may be a six instead of a five. "The result is that the quarterback has no monopoly on generalship and brains in this game any more. You know, they used to say that all a lineman needed was a good strong back and a good pair of arms and legs. That's not true any more. The lineman, as well as the back, must be prepared to change blocking assignments constantly, at an instant's notice." Five-Man Line Not New There's nothing new about the five- man line, Little pointed out, but before last season it was used generally as a defense against a strong forward passing attack and at the expense of strength against the running game. In 1931, when Barry Wood was throwing the pigskin for Harvard a University of Texas team invaded Cambridge. Wood dropped back and started to throw passes. Texas went into a five-man line, dropping an end off the scrimmage line into the secondary, whereupon smart Mr. Wood, who was a real Phi Beta Kappa, began running off the Hexas flanks and the final score was Harvard 35. Texas 7. Today, however, coaches are vising the five-man line as defense against the ground game as well as against passing and, primarily, as a defense ftratagem desigfned to confuse the of- oensive tetm in its blocking assignments. The result is a new element of gambling strategy in the game, new thrills for spectators, and new gray hairs for coaches. Little is not exactly effervescent Peter Pan for optimism, but does allow himself to break into a smile occasionally. The reason is ;; backfielcl corps, headed by the brilliant passing and running Sid Luckman, that appears much stronger than the Lion ensemble of a year ago. Culls Lucknuui Greatest Columbia expects the Brooklyn boy to rank among the season's national top-notchers. Aiding and abetting Luckman in his formard passing will be Johnny Siegal, a veteran 190-pound end who was a ball-hawk on the end of Luckman's tosses last season when Little was quoted ts saying that Luckman was> the greatest passer he liad ever seen, cither in college or professional football. Luckman, playing his final season, will get plenty of chance to sho\v Southern. Association Pllli -Off Club w! L.

Porkers to Take to Air in Opener Kay Eakin Expected to Do Most of Passing Against Oklahoma FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - UP) - The 1938 University of Arkansas Razorbacks may pick up Saturday where last year's 'passingest team in the nation" left off. Coach Fred C. Thompson indicated that if weather conditions were favorable he would depend a great deal upon an aerial attack against the Oklahoma A. & M. Aggies in the season opener. Coaches George Cole and Eugene Lambert who scouted the Farmers reported the Oklahoman's had a big line and three hard-running and versatile backs in Pete Rivers, Henry Brotherlon and Bill Cowling. Although its early, the boys certainly look good defensively," asserted Thomsen after watching his varsity pile up a 28-0 score against the freshman squad. The air-minded Arkansas mentor said Kay Eakin, expected to carry the brunt of the passing this year, and junior Mitchell had shown good form tossing the bull to receivers, among them sticky-fingered Joe Scalet, a blocking back. Mitchell and Scalet are sophomores. Thomsen reported three big sophomore ends, Howard Hickey, Maurice Britt and John Frieberger, who have had trouble holding passes, had shown improvement and turned in completions against the frosh. With the exception of Gloyd Lyon at quarter, the Razorbacks will face the Oklahomans with the same squad tliLt rode over the freshmen. Lyon will replace Neil Martin who will be first quarterback reserve while Ralph Atwood is recovering from a shoulder injury. Brilt and Hickey will hold down the end posts. Mays and Stallings will fill the tackles with Thorpe and Simington at guards and Woodell at center. In the backfielcl with Lyon will be halfbacks Eakin and Scalet and fullback Mosley. against rugged competition. On the first five Saturdays of the Season, Columbia meets Yale, Army, Colgate, Pennsylvania, and Cornell. "It's a lough schedule," asserts Little, 'especially with big games coming so early. But I'm convinced that that's the trend of modern football. 'Boys get more fun out of a real contest than from a game in which they're running against the 'south wind' and piling up 50 points against no opposition. "That kind of game makes a boy careless— and then he's more likely than otherwise to be hurt."

Word has got out via the "grapevine" that Bill Walton's team probably will be one of the strongest in all Ouachita history. Return of 15 lettermen and a raft of good reserves assures Walton of an experienced eleven that also contains much offensive dynamite that •was shown intermittently last season. The Oklahoma team that tied Ouachita 14 to 14 here in 1936 and defeated Ouachita 13 to 7 last season will be strong again this season if the consistency shown by the Shawnee Baptists for many years holds true, Coach WUlon is undecided about some of his starters, but the team that lakes the field Friday afternoon will be selected from the following men: In the line, Basil Myrick, J. T. Berry, Bob Young, and Joe Creccy, for ends; Owen Matlock, M. J. Paine, Lloyd Moore, Norman Forsee and Hartford Hardin, for tackles; Thomas Chinn, Joe Langston, Travis Paine, llpe Chain and Jamies Craig, guards; Jimmie Kincannon, Omar Lumsden and J. W. Thornton centers; Frank Reed, Robert Smith, Jake Baxter, Virgil Benson, Thomas Mann, Frank Tilley, Leo Westbrook, Lowell Nelson and Jack McHaney, backs.
