And How does lie compare with Sammy Baugh his noted predecessor? "O'Brien is as good right now as Sammy Baugh was in his hest year,' exploded Meyer. "He's a swell passer a better runner than Baugh and perhaps the finest field general I've ever seen. He isn't the kicker or defensive man that Baugh was, but He's his passing equal. Why Davey has thrown more touchdown passes in six games than Baugh threw in his best year." And does Coach Weycr consider his running game as important as the passing? "Yes sir. Unless you have a well- rounded team, running, kicking and passing, you haven't got much of anything. Our running is the best in th*rec years." Statistics bear Mr. Meyer out in that remark. Only Saturday his backs, featuring Connie Sparks, Johnny Hpll, Earl Clark' and Logan Ware, stormed over the Baylor line for 288 yards. Passes picked up 236 yards. The score—TCU 39, Baylor 7. True it is that Ki Aldrich, the nation's standout center candidate for All-America honors, is somewhat of a one-rnan riot on the defense, but he :s- just a part of a 212-pound average line with the sectdr's best defensive record. "Let the 'bowls' lake care of themselves," drawled Meyer. "We'll try to take care of each Saturday's game." Runs Players Hard As in Basketball Streamlined Football Is Valuable for Ball Handling By HARRY CRAYSON Sports Editor, NBA Service 'Six-man football rapidly is taking its place as an intramural sport in colleges and high schools. It looms as a great feeder for varsity teams . . .'improves ballhandling. It enables youngsters unable to make varsities to get into a game involving body contact. It's ideal for schools without enough boys for 11-men outfits and sufficient 'm'oncy to sponsor them. With less bone-crushing pijeups, the new streamlined version of the pigskin pastime carries out its purpose of lessening risk of injury , . . removes parental objections. While the sport is, conductive to wide-open play and opportunities for brilliant broken field running, it also provids plenty of vicious blocking anc open field tackling. Naturally, it is more mobile and faster than the 11-man style and leans more to razzle-dazzle stuff. Indeed it is marked by frequent substitutions 'or its heightened pace runs the ath- ctics to a frazzle, i It is somewhat •eminiscent of basketball with the center jump eliminated. Plow-Horse Posts Out, Game Easier to Follow With only 12' players on the premises instead of 22, line play and blocking stand out Wore. The game is easier to follow. The guard and tackle positions, the plow-horse posts, are eliminaed; also one halfback, leaving three men on the line and three in the backfield. There are innumerable offensive formations, but the defense usually sticks to a 2-3-1 setup. The field is 20 yards shorter and 40 feet narrower than the one on which the 11-man type is played . . . making it 80 by 40 yards. • The offense is required to advance 15 yards in four downs. The back receiving the ball directly from center cannot un with it. He must pass, but if there is a reverse play, for instance, the. second man handling it may run. Infraction oi this rule calls for a five-yard penalty or loss of down. Any player is eligible to receive a pass, although one set of rules make sthe center ineligible. A field goal counts four >points ;anc a conversion after touchdown two i kicked and one if completed in any other way. Kicking Encouraged, But Players Prefer to Run. This is to encourage kicking and remove the danger of injury within the 20-yard line. A touchdown counts the same as in the 11-man ga'mje. Goal posts are wider and the crossbar is Six-ManJFootball Spreads as Sport \ A six- man football team puts .the ball in play. lower to further, encourage kicking.

Length of .a game is four 10- minute' periods." " Six-Irian 'football .jnakes for high scoring. ' Teams frequently elect to run the extra point . . . indicating that it is easier to'advance the pigskin on the ground'than to kick' it' between, the uprights even though the latter 'are placed advantageously. A squad of. 15 is sufficient and the tennis shoes, for example, mean a saving over leather-cleated ones. Stephen Epler, an Iowa high school coach, really hit upon something when he originated six-mall football through necessity three years ago. Wolves Leave for Paragould Game 22 Members of Prescott Team En Route to N. E. Sector PRESCOTT, Ark—The Curly Wolves 22 strong left for Paragould Thursday morning by bus. This is the longest trip ever undertaken by a Prescott grid squad and will be an enjoyable one for the squad, as they will become acquainted with parts of the state heretofore unknown to them.

MEN Buy Your Hanes Underwear from us TALBOTS TCU Success Laid to Fine Balance Davey O'Brien as Good Now as Sammy Baugh, Says Coach FORT WORTH, Texas—Of)—Fine balance, power and reserve strength have given undefeated Texas Christian University the strongest football team in its history. Coach Leo (Dutch) Meyer is quick to warn the club is not a one man show revolving around wee Davey O'Brien and his "home run" passes. "No siree," Meyer said. "Davey is a great boy, but its the best club in Texas Christian history because of its fine balance and reserve strength. And say, did you ever see such scrappers? "That's what has impressed me— their ability to overcome handicaps. Remember the Texas Aggie game, when my boys fumbled on the Aggie 10 fcifter a fine first period drive, lost the ball and then came back to win anyway " The incident was recalled; the final score also —TCU 34, Aggies 6.

At a little meeting held her* yesterday, at which there were representatives from seTeral counties, in the interest of procuring the adoption of the Constitutional amendment, sponsored by the Arkansas Good Roads > and Debt Service Association, I was aaked, because I came from Southeast Arkansas, to write friends In that section, where no petitions for this amendment had been received. I am enclosing you three copies of the petition and data relatire to same. X feel confident, under the plans as laid out in this amendment, our outstanding highway bonds can be refunded to auch an extent'as to effect a saving to the State of at least a million and a quarter dollars annually. If you will take the time to glance through this data, 1 am sure you will favor this amendment and if so, I would appreciate your passing a petition,' with copy of the leaflet and instructions to petition circulators, to two or three parties in •••••or that vicinity, who you think would be in-) terested in earning |8.00 or $3.00 a day circulating petitions. The instructions to petition circulators show they will receive So* per signature as petitions are mailed into the Conway, Arkansas, office and an additional 2? per signature if amendment is carried at the November election. With personal regards, I am Tours very sincerely, CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT NO. 28 Forces the State to assume balance of "bonds" (totalling more than $1,000,000.00, perhaps $200000000) issued to build STREETS in Park Hill, Westwood, Laltewood, Sylvan Hills, North Heights and other developments near Little Rock promoted by the Justin Matthews Company. Other similar "private bonds" in ditrerent parts of the state arc also assumed—just how many millions of dollars, no one has told; but, does not assume street taxes inside any city or town. Entirely eliminates or drastically reduces "County Turnback Funds" without which county roads cannot be maintained unlesss heavy added taxes are placed on your property to do so. Makes it impossible for streets of cities and towns to EVER get help from highway taxes. Destroys the "State Highway System" of more thun 9,000 miles of roads through failuro even to mention much less provide funds for maintenance. Maintenance now costs around ?3,500,000.00 annually. THIS SUM IS TAKEN AND PUT INTO THE "BOND POT" AND MUST BE FORWARDED DAI.LY, AS COLLECTED, TO NEW YORK AND ST. LOUIS BANKS. Provides unlimited "EXPENSE" for attempts at refunding present highway debt at interest rates-twice as high as other states are NOW securing on similar issues; and makes increased gasoline, auto and "ad valorem" (Real and Personal Property) Taxes MANDATORY if needed to pay for increased bonded indebtedness. Does not (and can not) lift "old road district mortgages" from a single foot of Arkansas land; instead, it places a "Super Mortgage" of §145,000.000.00 on all property in the State.
