How to See Football No II—The Double Wing By JKKKY BltONUSPIEU) • NEA Service Sports Writer Glenn Scobey Warner isn't called the Old Fox for nothing, Warner's right ti the litle is based on his inventive mind, which gr.vc the game many of its trickier maneuvers—most notable of \\hich is the double wing (jffen.se. Because the double wing is best suited for only a certain type of material, it is not used as much as the .single wing. The system calls for extremely fast linemen who are able to pull out and block, and a fullback who I CLiii crack a line wide open from close up. Here. too. the spectator will find the unbalanced formation, with Ihe left tackle going into the right, or strong side of the line. The number 1 back, or right wing, is stationed a yard back ul iind jusl outside his end. The niim- bei -I. or left wing, is in the same approximate position on tho other side. Tile bucking, or number 'i back, takes ;i position i bout two yards in back of and .slightly to the right of iiis right guard, and the tad back, or number .'i, is about five yards directly behind center. OIK- disadvantage to note instantly is that only two men—the tail iind the bucking backs- are in position In lake ii direct pass from center. The fan will notice that Ihc blick- i-ag back storms through on a lot of •-.pinner plays, and that both he nnil the tiiil back do a lot of .straight hitting inside the tackles. 'lliiy opens the way for a lot of reverses both single and double—as mighl well be imagined, on the part POP of the wing backs, who often raise hob with the defense by skirting wide around their opposite ends. The double wing is a strong passing formation, with either of the wings— provided they are good passers—being in position to drop back and take the l.all fro meither Ihc bucking or tail back, and heave it downfield. Both guards and tho outside tackle, pulling out of the line, arc the men who perform the chief blocking chores. Deception is the keynote of the double wing. A glance nt the Temple offen.so should be convincing proof. Prescott Scores 4th Grid Victory Curly Wolves Run Over Glemvood Team for 49-6 Score PRESCO1T, Ark. - The Proscolt High School Curley Wolves scored their fourth victory of the season by defeating Glcnwood, 49 to C. here Tuesday night.

Glenwood scored in the third quarter. Buck Halsell. Dick Williamson and Leo Smith, backs, and Hubert Baker and D. C. White, linemen were outstanding for the winners.

Tenn. - f/P) — Harry 'Moon> Mullins of D'lo. Miss., won the Southern heavyweight championship here Tuesday night by punching out a hard-fought 10-round decision over Lloyd Montgomery of Bauxite, Ark. The 23-year-old Mississippi battler entered the ring at 188 pounds, Montgomery weighed 182. Mulhns, flashing a lightning-like left that found its mark on Montgomery's face, look an early lead. He forced the fight, trading blows evenly on the few occasions when Montgomery found opportunity to counter with his left. Not until the fourth round did Montgomery gel going. After taking an'. ther jab at tho outset, he registered three limes with his left, starting the blood to flow from Mullins' nose. An instant later Mullins' left eye spoulcd and the next trading of blows did the same for Montgomery's eye. Eolh wounds were widened in the later rounds. Montgomery's famed right was cocked continually, but it never landed. Seven;! times il bounced off Mullins' head and shoulders afler causing; minor damage. Both boys tried hard or a knockout in the last two rounds. In the semifinal, Mickey Breen of -oui.sville, light-heavyweight, decis- oned Chet Gideon of Wichita, Kan., n 10 rounds.

Anderson made no reply and the question was hurled at him again. The condemned man hesitated and then replied: "I never have been convicted for any crime in Indiana." Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Ridgeway offered an objection and prevented further questioning of Anderson as to murders that he is alleged to have committed in Indiana and Michigan. Tucker was referring to the murder of John Cella, taxi driver of Gary, Ind. Officers have said that Anderson confessed that he killed Cella and left his body in a cornfield in order to get possession of the victim's taxicab. Nl'.XT: The Notre Dame system.

Secret Agents Reported to Have Threatened Italians Living Here WASHINGTON.—(#)—An anti-Fascist Italian testified to the house committee on Un-American activitie: Tuesday that Italy's ambassador and several of her consular officials were linked to Fascist undercover work in tho United States. The witness was Girolamo Valenli of New York, chairman of the Italian Anti-Fascist Committee. "In the United Slates," he said "there is a branch of the dreaded Italian government secret police, -known as the OVRA. "This is a spy organization which calls at the homes of American citizens of Italian descent and attempts to frighten them whenever hey have participated in activities which do not conform to Fascist government policy. "This organization is directly linked to the Italian consular service in the United States and is obviously under instructions of the Italian ambassador in Washington." Declaring he could name "victims of this vicious practice," the witness added in heavily accented English that he would do so if the committee would keep their iclenties secret. "They fear reprisals against their relatives still living in Italy," he said. Valenti said there were four known OVRA agents in this country. He named them as Capt. Carlo Vinli, Pietro Pupino Carbonelli and Count Fach- ctti Guiglia of New York, and Ubaldo Guidi of Boston. Among consular officials "who have repeatedly taken part in Fascist affairs." he said, are onsul General Vecchiotti of New York; Consul General Segre of Boston; Consul General Per- vaii of Philadelphia; Consul P. de Cicco of New Haven, Ct., and Consul Jannelli of Johnstown, Pa. "While enjoying diplomatic immun- itj," the witness told the committee, "these Italian consular officials are exerting influence over American citi- ycns of Italian descent with the view cf gaing more power and prestige for their native government." He tesiified that consular officials "spy on American citizens and threaten those who will not subscribe to Mussolini's dictates and philosophy of government.

Her sole ally in Europe now is Britain— this same'Britain which went behind France's back and signed the naval agreement with Germany (in 1936) and which today comes to terms with Hitler—again behind France's back. "Isolation—that is the inevitable price of France's capitulation to the aggressor and that isolation was precisely Hitler's aim." . ... Britain Cautious WASHINGTON-W-Great Britain, in the view of some experts here, will play a careful game in her relations with Russia in the near future. She must watch her step lest she drive tht Soviet into the arms of Germany. Though there apparently is no love lost between Hitler and Stalin, the 1922 treaty of Rapallo, which made Germany and Soviet Russia allies for a time, is still fresh in observers' minds, as is also the conternation is caused in Europe. Rusia reacted bitterly to her exclusion from the recent 'four-power conference at Munich—and to .the whole Chamberlain policy toward 'Germany. Some British, it is thought here, would like to see Germany serve as a bulwark against Russia and Russia as a bulwark against Germany. Perhaps, it is said, there is a lingering hope in some British minds that Germany and Russia may so balance each other in Eastern Europe that neither one would prove a danger in Western Europe and in other parts of the world This fish, n c;ibio, escaped from the line of the man in the bont afler breaking water and jumping right into tin- k'n? of. a surprised cam- in iiuollicr skill'.
