To date (lie Panthers have won but ,.. one yaniL' while the Bobcats rated as leading champiomhip contenders at the slate of the .season, have lost only one game. The Bobcats have defeated Smackover and Nashville two teams Ih.-it have won from Camden. Therefore the Hope eleven is rated favorites over the Camden by three touchdowns while Hope won from them by two. Coach Sam Coleman expected to send a .scrapping buch of Panthers out (in the field Friday night.

Coach Kern and Players 'Forget' the Wrong Down PITTSBURGH—OT- "'.11 Kern, Carnegie Tech football coach, who has done a lot of thinking about the 'fourth down" break at South Bend Saturday By KKLIX R. M'KNIGHT FORT WORTH, Texas— (/t'l—Davey ; D'Brien, the ISO pound Irish oken tnot who has forward passed nigh on a half mile in five games, draws Juliet Bill Patterson, no sandlot slinger himself, in Saturday's classic of the airways. Unbeaten Texas Christian tags along behind O'Brien; undefeated .but tied Baylor lines up behind Patterson. Little Davey, whose tiny feet have comfortably bulged the brogans o! his illustrious predecessor, Slingin Sam Baugh, has the same passing av- trage of Columbia's publicized Sic Luckman — but has gained exactly 275 more yards. Ten of the Christians' 17 touchdown; in walkover triumphs against Cen tenary, Arkansas, Temple, Texas A and M. and Marquette, have come directly from O'Brien's passing arm •While five more have been set up a the goal line for the plunge over as result of hi.s throws. But the little fellow operates under considerably more pleasant conditions than most passers, for, up there in front holding out rushers and giving him nmple time to brush up on next M6ndcy's calculus lessons on the side is a.212-pound average line. •One of the best in Southwest Conference history is that line, a fine-band of offensive blockers led by Center Ki Aklrich and Tackle I. B. Hale. It has opened holes for its backs to wedge: through for G77 yards on the ground, which chills the .rumor that Texas Christian is entirely razzle-dazzle. The tipoff on O'Brien and his passing mijgic comes deep in the statistics— I when he misses, its close. Only two of his 8G passes have been intercepted. Incidentally, O'Brien has missed but one try-for-point aftcjr touchdown in 14 attempts. To date TCU hasn'.t needed O'Brien in that department, however. 'Patterson is to 'Baylor what salt is to pepper. His throwing arm is theii •touchdown hope, as witness a 25-yard scoring pass Saturday last that gave then\ G-G tie with a Texas Aggie team that shoved them all over the rain- swept field. His kicking toe is tops in tjiie Southwest. His average is better than 40 yards and he is uncanny at steering them out of bounds. Only his kicking kept the Aggies' Dick Todd, throttled. Battered by the Aggies, who twice; reached the one-foot line but failed to burrow through Baylor's line for the| winning score, the Baylors have been shunted to the short end of the odds; against Texas Christian, which used reserves aplenty to crush Marquette. Some 30,000 are expected to overflow!

Therefore the many who rate th current Pitl combination Ihe fines that ever lugged leather may be fa fnom wrong. "The .Notre Dame backs of 1924 were as fast.as Goldberg, Stcbbins, Chickerneo, and Cassiano," asserls Crowley. 'We had superior passing and more • killful kicking by Laden, bill we lacked the physical advantages . . . uml consequently the power ... of he four phenomenal Panthers." Dr. Suthorland Will Tell At the conclusion of this season, Dr. Jock Sutherland' will tell the world that Goldberg, Stebbins, Chickerneo, and Cassiano formed Ihe finest set of backs he ever drilled. It is extremely doubtful if any backfield ever matched them for sheer pow- ar. All are highly proficient and can run in either direction. "Biggie" Goldberg, who weighs 184 pounds and stands 5 feet lO'/a, would be thp best guard or end on Ihe Pill varsity were he nol a back. Goldberg is "the hardest runner of the four and is of good speed, although he and Chickerneo are not as rapid as Curly Stcbbins, and Cassiano is the speediest of th'e quartet. Strictly a team man, Goldberg sacrificed the running position of left halfback this full to block, and hLs teammates love him for it. He kicks well enough and throws a short pass with deadly accuracy.
