Commented Brown who has piloted the squad in all four of tho post-season charity games. "We apparently wanted to win it a little more thp.n they did. Our boys just played p little harder.

' : One of the big questions for the 4,214 fans who watched under overcast skies was why Parker waited so long to use Quarterback Y.. A. Tittle, of the San Francisco 49ers. .Late in the third quarter the crowd set up a chant .for Tittle and he master minded a 63-yard march highlighted by a 36-yard run by Huge MeElhenny and cul minated by a 10-yard touchdown dash by Joe Perry, both also of San Francisco. That made it 13-9, but Ray Renfra of Cleveland iced the nationally televised game for the East with a £3-yard touchdown jaunt. Parker explained it was difficult to atilize the services of three quarterbacks and Layne and Norm Van Brocklin knew his system bet ter. Layne quarterbacks Detroit and Van BrockJin of Los Angeles played for Parker in last year's Pro-Bowl game. with two victories and a loss each.

B. C.

That's why there's so much talk these days about organizing hew college athletic conference or reorganizing aid Ones. And ahyorle who mingle with the college sports bigwigs knows there is mtieft talk, usually \vith conferences and TV bracketed as an ehtry. the "live" one under discussion now is the proposed Eastern Conference. That's understandable because the East has moi-e football independents who Want' to gain recognition in the television program. Ohe cannv observer put it this way: "When you think of the East you think of the Ivy League so- the others have got together to promote themsleves and promote football." A quick look at the. 1953 NCAA Television Committee report barks up that remark, n 13 Saturdays last fall, 38 college teams showed on the national network. Of these 32 were members of major conference. The other six were Army and Navy in their annual fracas, Notre Dame, Holy Cross, Pittsburgh and Sycruse (the latter in that better-forgotten "panorama" program. When you think that the comp- ing teams in the full-game shows 'cut up an average of over $120 000 each Saturday the sponsors sh'elle d ou$500,00 a game for the panoramas, you can see how much TV can mean to a school. When the new Eastern Conference is formed apparently depends on the attitude of Army and Navy. The service academies, rather cold to the whole idea at the outlet, have been shownig more interest. The present plan calls for Army. Navy, Pittsburgh, Penn. State West Virginia and Syracuse to form the league. If Army anrl Navy don't come in, the guys pushing the plan would considpr Colgate and Rutgers, but they're wooing the academies by pfferina a flexible football program that would let those two play their us ual national schedules. They plan to form regular leagues in all important sports blii football, they wouldn't require any round-robin schedules or minimum number of games. But they'd jusl hope that conference membership and frequent meetings Would bring tliem closer together. Future of Tech Cagers in Doubt §y fhe Associated Press a} The immediate future of Arkansas Tech's great basketball scoring machine was in doubt today as six Wonder Boys nursed injuries received early yesterday when their station wagon blew two back tires and overturned near Morrilton. Coach Sam Hindsman said puts tho boys were valuable which puts a big question mark around the ieam which has racked up three A$ Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference victories without a loss and was driving for its sixth consecutive AIC title. Tech is scheduled to entertain Ozarks Wednesday and Ouachita on Saturday. The Wonder Boys had knocked over Arkansas A&M 88-78, last Saturday night and were 108-69 victor over Henderson Thursday night. Meanwhile, the AIC leading Ar- ^ kansas State Teachers rocked wr along last week with victories,of 68-67 over Ouachita and 98-82 over College of the Ozarks.
