GIBSON DRUG CO. fornia Monday as rivals for the Rose Bowl classic at Pasadena, Calif. The latest additions to the list of "bowl" combatants were: Texas Christian and Carnegie Tech, Sugar Bowl at New Orleans; Tennessee and Oklahoma, Orange Bowl at Miami, Fla.; Texas Tech with no rival named as yet for the Cotton Bowl at Dallas, Texas, and New Mexico, also looking for an opponent for the Sun Bowl at El Paso, Texas. Four of the six are unbeaten and un- tied—TCU, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Texas Tech—and three of the four still have a game each to play. Tennessee, champion of the Southeastern Conference, has Mississippi to dispose of Saturday, while Oklahoma, Big Six title winner, and Texas Tech have engagements the same day with Washington Sitate and Centenary, respectively. Texas Christian nnd Tennessee, while they have accepted bids, must await final approval of their action by the other members of their conferences. In each case, however, this is regarded as a mere formality. Holy Cross was being sought as the opponent for Texas Tech in the Cotton Bowl, with Utah, champion of the Rocky Mountain Big Seven, the leading candidate' for the Sun Bowl game with New Mexico. New York promoters, because of poor weather conditions, postponed until next year their plans for an "Eastern Bowl" game tentatively set for December 10. TCU Chose Sugar Bowl for Several Pertinent Reasons DALLAS, Texas—<#)—Christian, perhaps the mightiest of all Southwest football teams, Tuesday chose the New Orleans' Sugar Bowl post-season classic for its final appearance on January 2 because: 1. It felt Carnegie Tech, its New Orleans' foe, was the strongest opposition it could face. 2. Carnegie Tech, previously committed to the Sugar Bowl, wasn't available for the Cotton Bowl. 3. Players, the boys who steam- To the Citizens of Hope: Many thanks for the fine support given me in Wednesday's election. I will do my best to represent you creditably on the City Council.

WILLIAMS To My Friends- Your Loyalty and Support Gave to Me the Democratic Nomina- tion for Mayor in Wednesday's Primary, for Which I Am Deeply Grateful. W. S. Atkins rolled ten stttfeht' opponents Voiced a preference. Stunned by their position of "second best' when Rose Bowl invitations were handed out, the Christians immediately made sincere efforts to piny in Texas' own game—the Cotton Bowl. Throughout the night and into early dawn Tuesday, TCU officials sat closeted with J. Curtis Sanford, director-general of the Cotton Bowl game, in an effort to make arrangements for a Texas Christian appearance in Dallas, Telephonic ami telegraphic contacts were made with many leading teams. Carnegie Tech, loser only to Notre Dame on the famed "wrong count" decision and conqueror of mighty Pitt, 21-10, advised Cotton Bowl officials it had committed itself to the Sugar Bowl. Other contacts failed and TCU officials, at 4:30 a. m. decided to accept the Sugar Bowl's invitation. It was contingent upon approval by the six remaining members of the Southwest Conference—a formality. Texas Christian players had voted immediately after their triumph over Southern Methodist Saturday to accept a Rose Bowl bid if it was proffered, Duke got the bid and Texas Christian sought put the stlffest foe av'ailpble—Carrvegie Tech, in their opinion. Holy Cross, VlUanora and Utah May Oppose Red Raiders DALLAS, Texas — (#)— Undefeated, untied Texas Tech Tuesday was formally invited to play in the Cotton Bowl post-season football classic here on January 2, but no opponent had yet been selected. Dan Rogers, chairman of the Cotton Bowl Athletic Association board of directors, said Holy Cross, Villanova and Utah were being considered as likely opponents of the West Texas team. Fordham's Rams, defeated only by Pitt but tied, declined an invitation and closed its post-season negotiations when the Sugar Bowl at New Orleans announced it had signed Carnegie Tech and Texas Christian.

Dated this 29th day of November, 1938. ALBERT GRAVES Administrator Dec. 1. Spat, HOPE, ARKANSAS that has seen them lick Montana, Montana State, Duquesne, MnrrtueUe, New Mexico, Wyoming, Texas School of Mines Oklahoma City, and Loyola of Los Angeles, accepted the Invitation. Texas Christian officials sat with Cotton Bowl heads throughout the night in an effort to make arrangements for a Dallas appearance, but accepted the Sugar Bowl bid when it was announced Carnegie Tech would be their opponent there. Efforts to match Tennessee and Oklahoma here failed when the Orange Bowl grabbed those two undefeated, untied teams. Nylnnd Satisfied Over Invitation to Orange Bowl KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — (/P) —Coach Bob Neyland expressed satisfaction Tuesday that his untied and unbeaten Tennessee Volunteers had been • invited to play undefeated and untied Oklahoma in the Miami Orange Bowl January 2, Neyland said also Tennessee had considered a game in the Dallas Cotton Bowl. A report from Dnllas said Texas Christian University accepted a bid to the New Orleans Sugar Bowl only after officials had been unable to obtain a "suitable" foe for the Cotton Bowl. "We had under consideration the matter of playing in the Cotton Bowl," said the big Tennessee mentor. "Also in other bowls, "Evidently we were being considered by the bowl officials also. What happened when the selections were made, I do not know, but we are well satisfied with the Orange Bowl and our undefeated opponents, the University of Oklahoma." If Neyland felt any disappointment that his team. Southern Conference champion, was not selected for the Rose Bowl or Sugar Bowl, he gave no indication of it as he sent his squad through a spirited workout in preparation for the final game of the season Saturday against Mississippi in Memphis. Neyland said he believed Texas Christian and Carnegie Tech formed a good combination for the Sugar Bowl. Not so affable were Tennessee followers, who were plainly disappointed that Tennessee did not get a bid either to the Rose Bowl or Sugar Bowl as the Volunteers face a sixth undefeated season during Neyland's 12-year reign here. Tie games marred five perfect seasons. Excitement Spreads Across Campus at Oklahoma NORMAN, Okla.—<#)—ExcitemerU spread across the University of Oklahoma campus Tuesday night as the word got around that the undefeated Sooner football team would play Tennessee in the Orange Bowl at Miami, Fla., January 2. Saturday's intersectional game with Washington State here was forgotten for the moment. Students started planning ways to follow the team South. Tom Stidham, young head coach and athletic director whose Sooners have won 13 games in a row, withheld comment until official word came from Miami. "We'll be happy to play Tennessee," he said when assured Miami officials had made the announcement. "It should be a great game." Both Oklahoma and Tennessee are unbeaten and untied this year but Tennessee also has another scheduled game to "play. The Vols meet Mississippi Saturday. Recordsvof the tow teams this year are almost identical. Tennessee has won nine games and held opponents to 16 points. Oklahoma, in a like number of games, has held the opposition to 12 points. Both are champions of their respective conferences—the Sooners of the Big Six and the Volunteers of the Southeastern. Tennessee ranked fourtli nationally and-Oklahoma fifth in this week's Associated Press poll. The Sooners were so excited during Tuesday's workout they let the freshmen run them ragged in scrimmage. "I saw some news reel pictures of Tennessee's team and I'm scared to death," said big Waddy Young, Okla- home's leading candidate for All- America honors. "It will be a good vacation for the boys, but we'll go down there to win." Paul Harrison in Hollywood The Man,Who Imitates Wallpaper Also Escorts Hedy Lamarr About Prescott Man Is (Continued from Page entire life in this county. He was well known and liked by everyone who knew him. His many friends learned with deep regret of his untimey death. For many years he was agent for the Standard Oil Company, which position he held until about two years ago when he was forced to give it up because of ill health. Since that time he has been connected with the Christopher Cash Oil Company. • » ». A "fixed focus" camera is one having a lens focused for the best average distance, or 25 feet. Blue Ribbon Bread At Your Grocer and City Bakery He started doing imitations and look at him now. His name I* Reginald Gardiner and with him i» Ilcdy Lamarr. HOLLYWOOD.—You never can tell what some odd little talent may do for you. Take Reginald Gardiner, the man who imitates wallpaper. He came by his fame accidentally, but it has established him firmly in Hollywood, and a bachelor nnd all, he has become the right-hand man of the heady Hcdy Lamarr. I call that pretty good going. Gardiner had been playing straight parts on the English stage for about a dozen years and never guessed that he was destined to panic 'movie and radio patrons. One day he was asked to entertain at a boys' school, which he once attended, and on the train going down he wracked his brain for a scheme to divert the youngsters. It was a rackety, bumptious little train, and its clanking and snorting began to work a pattern in the actor's thoughts. Wallpaper Imitations Inspired in Bed. So when he got to the school he imitated the train, accompanying the imitation with a lecture. It went over big, so big that word of it preceded him to London. Friends made him repeat the stunt, and then the public clamored for it. He enlarged his repertoire. His representation of the monotonous patterns of wallpaper came to him. quite simply, while ho was lying in bed. On Broadway, in the revue, "The Show Is On," he did his agitated pan- tomi'm'c of a cop orchestra leader, which was repeated here in "Born to Dance." Later roles have been less screwy, but he still entertains his friends with imitations of *lmost anything, especially music. Just now he is playing in "Katherine the Last" with a broken arm. He broke it falling down stairs, not leading an imaginary orchestra. The script has been revised to justify the arm's being carried in a sling. Sneezing His Way io Success Another specialist is Billy Gilbert, the sneezer. If Gilbert hadn't been a poor barber he probably never would have fecome a film comic. On the other hand, if he hadn't been a barber at all he likely wouldn't have the top role in a modest Metro muslcall called "G'nce Over Lightly." During 25 years as a funnyman, the fat actor never told about his barber shop discord, but it's true. His fathei had a shop in San Francisco and made hi'm,' study the tonsorial art. "I was failure," he confessed. ''Such a failure that I ran away, slept outdoors, caught cold, started sneezing, made people laugh, sneezed my way into vaudeville and then into pictures. When I hcarc this movie needed a barber college professor I came around and got the job. Say, friend, isn't your hair getting a little thin on top?" Plain and fancy dying is the usual chore of J.
