PAGE six KLYTHEVJILE, (AKK.) COURIER NEWS AllrArnerica Pickers Dazzled by Brilliance of Field Generals. They Bid For AU-Amorican Fame i By i. S. (Larry) MacPHAll, •' .Nittonal Football Referee ' "Give me a couple of tackles, n 'uckVwho can BO places, and n -marl quarterback, and I'll hnv; n .'cotball team. But fust gve me thr •luartcrback." That's been Hie chant •>f a'lot of, football coaches from Maine to California. Great quarterbacks have been ^carc'e' since the styles In quarter- •acks changed. Ten years ago somo 'Utle.fellow hid behind the' cenl?r. .3ok the ball, and gave It to th< •acks. But with the advent of thr 'Irect pass,.and the huddle, and a ompllcated offense, the fellow whr •,vas jusl a quarterback passed oi;i : f the picture. ' In the complicated modern of- 'ense all four backs have prncll- •ally the same duties to perform "he quarterback must l>e an efficient blocker. If he can run,' pas' ••nd kick, so much the better. On 'cfense, he must be a sure tackier with ability .to defend against for- vard passes. If he's a great quar- '•;rbaci;. he's « great halfback, pos• using in addition the qualities of ".indershlp ond sound judgment. Prank Carldeo of Notre Dame and "larry Wood of Harvard merited Mi-America consideration last fall ~lut both" were overslindowc'l b'- '•ctler backs in Glassgo'w, Welch nd Cagle, to say nothing of Nfars- '.2rs. Banker and Benny Lorn. This year, however,' the cror> of •ood quarterbacks is larce. Qimv- erbacks are the outstanding back jeld players in almost every pec- ; ion: In the East, Booth of Yale. Wood -f Harvard and Captain 'Eddie Ba- ';er of Pitt seem to have the call, hough French ol Penn Stale also :s a fine quarter. • * • Booth is small but he oacks dv- •rjatic player. He is spectacular In imtic player. He is spectacular in i broken field and runs well from icrimmase' following his Interference with deliberation and good Judgment. Booth Is one of the best ounters in the game, n.fine dror kicker and a fair, passer. His lenm value is 'lessened by the fact Hint 147 pounds can hardly last through a game, much less a season. • "Jock." Sutherland considers Eddie Baker the smartest back he ever coached. The Pittsburgh cnp- tain is handicapped by a medlocrp eleven. Baker Is Just about Ibr whole show at Pitt. He is their best'passer rfild IScSt'"receiver. H* punts, place kicks and wicks ofT Baker is sn ideal leader and [>iv<"= every'ning ; that's in him tn even game. • * • Bobby Dodd' of Tennessee h!>- been the South's best qunrtcrbocV- for two years. Rival coaches eive Dodd the credit for Tennessee'*long string of victories, witli Hackman aiid McEver, both great plny- ers, on the injured list at Tennessee ,thc burden of the attack liar been .thrown on Dodd. He does everything' there is to do and does it well. Dodd Is not only as ijoort p punter as there Is In .the South, bu! one of the greatest passers from running formations in the Ram- They don't make better quarterbacks than this slim southerner. Lee Hanley of Northwestern is a good back and an Ideal leader, but the Big Ten nomination prob^hh- will go to Harry Newman. Michigan's sophomore flash. Newmar was not included on the list of players Invited back for early practice at Ann Arbor. He did not ce* into a eame until Michienn wa- trailing Purdue by two touchdowns. He has been in all games since Newman has passed Michigan tn victory in four major games. H°has transformed a mediocre outfit into an eleven with championship possibilities. It is questionable whether any other player has accomplished more. * • • • Notre Dame sill! hns Carideo. Carideo is a good blocker. He hsr to be to p!ay in Notre Dame's backfield. Carideo is also a good tackier. He has to. be that. too. The Hoosier may not be able to puni with Dodd, run like Booth, or pas; as well as Newman, but he's a fine all-around player and especially- valuable on pass defense. Caridso has the advantage of directing one of the country's greatest teams and the prestige of All-America selection In 1929. On the coast Orville Mohler of Southern California is having a ! good year. Mohler had a large part I in handing Pop Warner the worst beating of his career at Stanford. ; andwa s also a big shot in the 74-0 defeat of California. • Football brains and generalship will determine the All-America rating of these great backs. What constitutes good, football Judgment? Well, even coaches disagree. If they tell you how dumb a quarter is who threw passas on first down or from deep in his own territory, you'd best agree if you don't want to be taken for an imbecile. Depend unon it, the passes were intercepted.

Anyway, Alabama • deserves .a rest after consecutive | victories over Tennessee. VanJer !l)ilt. Kentucky and Florida. i Georgia is counted a favorite over Tulam 1 on the basis of games j played. Tulane's toughest game so far tills season was lost to Noa'tn- wei'lcrn 0-14 and the Green Wave's later victories have been over teams of also-ran calibre. | Thus, barring a tic. only two trams will remain unbeaten after today's contests. If the leaders arc Alabama and Georgia, Dixie fans can lopk forward to a S]>ecticulor biitile between the Tide and the liuihioes on Thanksgiving Day at Birmingham. In that connection, Alabama nr>- ;x'ars a slight favorite, since by dc- [cri'.hij; Florida 20 to 0, the .Crimson Tide bettered Georgia's 'show- ins against the Gators which was a disappointing 0-0 tie.
