IPAOE SIX HOPE STAH, HOPE, ARKANSAS Jexas Tech, Its House Now in Order, Awaits Entry Southwest Conference |Ke"cl Raiders Often Denied, But Now Appear Good Choice to Make Conference an Eight-Team Loop Instead of Seven Wednesday, December 14.1,938 Ry JERRY BRONDF1ELD NBA Service Sports Writer if There's a new gridiron power rising in the southwest and it's threatening jl 1to make its sphere of influence extend ever the national scene, and not merely the dusty plains of Texas, The Red Raiders of Texas Te<;h, who romped to an unblemished record Jrt a 10- ( game schedule and who will wage war with St. Mary's in the Cot- ion Bowl game at Dallas. New Year's Day, never have been a member of tan athletic league, but the time ap- . ? pears to be ripe for them to make the , * Southwest Conference an eight-team s f loop instead of seven. >| Situated in Lubbock, and perfectly ',; located geographrically for a spot in ' the league. Texas Tech, according to ^ most critics in the section, is fit to i fi travel in anyone's company. I •f Ihe school, with an enrollment of | slightly more than 3000. is the third '5» largest in the Lone Star state, and is exceeded only by the University of ] Texas, with 9000, and Southern Methodist with 3300. And because it is a technical school, * a great majority of its students are i boys. I From Sun Bowl to Cotton Bowl '> Under the astute direction of Pete «t Cawthon. who knows football, and bet<£ ter still, how to teach it, the Red Raid^ ers in the last two or three years have |» climbed from obscurity in the national scene to a place of respect. A year ago they were nominated for the iSun Bowl game at El Paso, one of the lesser bowl affairs and were beaten by West Virginia, 7-6. Now they're in the Cotton Bowl, performing in one of the better classics, before a big crowd, and with a chance to come into some important money. According to southwest observers. Texas Tech several times has applied tor entrance to the conference but each time has been refused, the underlying reason being its football requirement were not as strict as required. Since the first application Tech set its scholastic house in very good order but again was turned dowti. A year ago a member of the st;.te legislature even attempted to have a bill passed forcing the Southwest Conference to admit the Raiders, but it received lit-. tie support because only two schools iii the league—Texas and Texas A. & M.—are state supported. However, inasmuch as rumors say Arkansas is thinking of applying for admission to the Missouri Valley Conference, the question will no doubt come up again. In the past, several Texas teams have balked at making the long trip to Fayetteville because of the lack of attendance.. Tarbox, Boyd Lead Raider's Cause This year' edition of the Lubbock Larrupers took on 10 opponents from nine different states and whaled the daylights out of all of them. On successive week-ends they whipped Montana State, Wyoming, Puquesne, Oklahoma City, Montana, Texas Mines, Loyola o/ New Orleans, i Gonztga, New Mexico, and Marquettc. | In Elmer Tarhox, 175-pound triple" threat, Cawthon has one of the finest halfbacks in the country. Abe Murphy, gigantic tackle, probably could make any varsity in the land, and is regarded as an equal to Texas Christian's I. B. Hale, which makes him a pretty fair lineman. St. Mary's had one of the coast's bet- ^Here's Looking at You, Saint Mary's.!

Gorham 6- Gosnell The Men's Store Claire Trevor's Bustle Doesn't Ride Well in a Stage Coach HOLLYWOOD.—Minute interviews: Claire Trevor: "I'm getting a bit fed up on these location trips, especially when I have to spend most of my time crowded into a stage coach. These bustles aren't made for riding comfort. I'm not a very good girl in 'Stage Coach.' In fact in that scene you just watched the town's people were kicking me out. But all i.s forgiven in the end." Robert Preston: "This part in 'Union Pacific' empresses me as my big break more and more every day. Now DeMille has me slated to sing a song. It'll be an old railroad song of the ISGO's." Ginger Rogers: "I had to have a massage every day during lunch hour when we were shooting the 'Yama ama Man' dance I wasn't used to doing splits, high kicks and cartwheels." Thomas Mitchell; "Yes, I'm a drunken doctor all through 'Stage Coach' and I deliver a baby under trying conditions, but it the characterization is diferent from the doctor in 'Hurricane.' This picture is really a 'Grand Hotel' on wheels." Bob Hope: "I think somebody must have let Mack Sennett in when they were writing 'Never Say Die.' First Alan Mowbray smears orange mar- 'malade all over my face, then Martha Raye hits Vr.'e in the eye with a pat of tomobile thrown in." Madaleine Carroll: "I've never ridden an aquaplane in my life and 1 don't see any good reason for doing it in "Cafe Society." Why .should I keep a stunt girl out of a job?" Boh Cummings: "My part in the next Durbin picture is really belter than Deanna's, but probably won't be by the time they finish rewriting her part. It's tough though trying to be musical. I've been spending all my ti'me with a music teacher, trying tr leaern to play a flute, piano, clarinet and saxophone. 1 don't really have to pay them but I have to be able to go through the motions like an artist." Brian Aheme: "I don't see why I A Book a Day By Bruc* Catton A Mile Wide—An liich Deep shoud try to kid anyone about this back eye. I got caught in a revoving door." Robert Armstrong: "I like London a lot, but it's sure good to be back in Hollywood. Yes, I'm going to be working soon—in fact, I start in the Corrigan picture next week. Say, that kid really has a lot on the ball." Harvey Stephens: "Working in 'Oklahoma Kid 1 is more dangerous than flying my glider.

Every Christmas brings picture chances such as this—plan your pictures now! rxAMERA hobbyists can give a new ^* twist to the admonition, ''Do our Christmas shopping early!" jheir watchword should be, "Plaii your Christmas pictures early!" Of course, you probably won't receive that fine new camera until Christmas morning. (You're supposed to look surprised when you unwrap it.) But, (or Christmas pictures before that time, the old camera will doubtless give good service, And what a lot of such pre-Christmas pii-tun.-s there are to take, it the holiday story is to he fully told!

Kithor way, it's a picture. Thou there's the decorating ot the tree to he pictured. And a shot of the children admiring it. And pictures of gifts being wrapped for frionds. And members of the family placing packages. And pictures of the chilijreuppeering out of the window, looking for Santa Claus.'And, Of course, the youngsters hanging up their stockings, sail reluctautly going up to bed—a good stairway | shot, with the children In their nighties. These are pictures that introduce the Christmas story properly. Placed In the album In proper sequence, they 'lave tremendous story value. They give you much more to remember—and half the fun of Christmas is in getting ready for it. Christmas morning, of course, you can picture the opening of the gifts; the children enjoying new toys, and other members of the family trying on new gift scarves or jackets—all worth while. Then there are pictures at Christmas dinner, and in the afternoon, outdoor shots showing the new sled or bicycle on its first trial run. Since many shots will be Indoors^ you'll need high speed film, a couple of amateur "flood" bulbs, and an inexpensive set of cardboard "lampshade-type" reflectors to use with them. Better have a few flash bulbs, too, for the occasional shot that requires them. And by all meana make a list of "must" pictures— snapshots you are just bound to get.
