By I. S. (Larry) MacFIIAIL National Football Beferee In the Michigan-Harvard game the Wolverines delegated two mcv U> take care of Benjamin H. Ticknor, the Crimson's All-America k.In spite "of this precaution Tick- made fully one-half the Har tackles. . / ' 'hen Michigan. first reached Harvard seven-yard line thej three different routes to buck, an end run and a icknor stopped the nrst twi |nd tackled Wheeler so hard received the pass that h the ball. inters In football had th If or quickly diagnosing play by Ticknor; few hav I'der chargers, better- lack passers. Because Tick .has been outstanding I imes this season, and als «o when he was a unanl ll-Amerlca selection, on pardoned for the oplnlo Is a great center, one o Itest. , so fast. In reality, Tick ! very ordinary center, wh at times because Har ppositlon Is so pitiful . Ticknor wouldn't be re -a "big shot" if he wer on the Pacific Coast, where teams are really foolba f We have this on the autho "Dink" Templetpn, Stan I famous track coach, who quoted to the effect th: ir wouldn't even be a ca substitute for Mel 'Hein hlngton State." *slbly Mr. Templeton wasn't ng himself very seriously when Igave out that interview. Mr, ppfeton has issued bulletins be- obviously intended to "get a out of some of his eastern Inds. Mr.^Temppleton shouMre- nbcr Oregon had a tough time ting Drake and Stanford could get no better than a tie with Minnesota in , early clashes. Pacific Coast teams still have Notre Dame and Dartmouth on their schedules. If they annihilate these teams, Mi. Templeton's wise cracks will have to beg 'iven more serious consld- eralipn.. - " However.ilhere is nothing wrong with Mr. Templeton's 'candidate for Mr. Tictnor's Job. -Mel "Hein of Washington State is easily .the leading center on the coast this season. Hem is a great ce.nter on defense and not only starred In Washington State's defeat of Southern California but played a great game when they defeated California the week before. "Nibs" Price, California's coach, ranks Hein ahead of his own centers Eichmeyer and Medanlch, and gives h'm a big edgei over Wentworth of Washington, Taylor of Stanford and Tassi of Santa Clara But Ticknor and Hein don't dominate the spotlight. The year Is producing a lot of great centers. Berner of Syracuse, Freddj . Loese'r of Rale, Siano of : Fordham and Morrison of Michigan are ai great centers. "Push 'Em Up Tony" Siano has been the outstanding player ou the great Fordham line of the last two years, and is on his way to make this year the best. "Gus" Dorias Detroit mentor, has had opportunity to compare Siano and Morrison of Michigan. Dorias inclines to the opinion that Siano Is a grca' leader and an exceptionally flni player on defense, but lacks thi strength and power of Morrison the backbone of a good Wdverini line. Morrison's work on the othc: hand has ben marred somewhat bj faulty passing in Important games Little Albie Booth Is the.vita sparic in Yale's offense. But it' their stubborn defense that is mak ing for a successful season at New Haven. And phunky Freddy Loes cr furnishes Just as much on de fensc as "the Atom" does on th attack. Together, they make wonderful combination. Loeser is tireless worker • and an insipratio to his team. Bemer of Syracuse has merit the commendation of coaches wh have seen him play. Dr. J. B. Su thcrland, the Pittsburgh coach, ha a good look at Berner ,when Pit met the New York team: "Jock always conservative, was lavish i his praise of Berner, rernarkln "His passing was close to perfec Ho was down under kicks an made the tackles. He diagnose plays quickly and was fast enoug to play the ball under all ctrcum stances. Berner is everything tha a real center has to be." These arc not all the good ccn ters that are around this year. No by any means. There are Andre of Dartmouth, Jonas of Utali an. Noble Atkins of Texas Christia University. Many critics thougl Andres held his own with Tickno in the HarvardrDartmouth gam Jonas has been All-Confcrcnc center In the Rockies for two year And Atkins, a big powerful-Texa ooy, who has hardly missed a min utc In three years of competitio is one of the great centers th southwest has produced.

(UP)— Tniversity of Arkansas cagers have oegun basketball practice early.this ;ear. with the hope of getting in shape to capture, their sixth' con-' aecuttve southwest . conference hampionship. Coach "Chuck" Bassett is giving he prospective basketeers daily workouts in preparation for the xmnant .conquest. In addition to he daily scrimmages, he has scheduled six barn-storming games, two lames each to be played with '"the Dkiahoma • Aggies, Pittsburg, Kan., Teachers, and Butler University. A small team will attempt to up- lold the championship playing of he Razorbacks this 'year as all but iiree "of last year's six foot- cr more Company Counts Little Albie Booth, of course,.Isa great halfback. This is no attempt to take away any of the glory he earns for Ya!e by those snaky runs through the : enemies of the Blue. But Is Booth greater than Scalzi of Georgetown, or Weller of Haskell, Goff of Rhode Island, O'Neill of Detroit? You' don't hear much about these lads; but in the districts where they play,-they.are appreciated as stars. In a few years you may nev'erTemeinBer that there was a Scalzl or a .Wellery You will remember Booth,',though, because Booth went to-Yale. : '. .'

There are plenty of Massachusetts people who,will tell you to this day that Scalzl was a betler- football player, than Booth. But Booth went to .Yale,.' Scalzl went to Georgetown. Louis Weller is an Indian, for your information, andj-plays with Haskell. On. the western plains, where Louis has been "a scourge W' the football teams that stood in his path, he is an Idol. The "people wh6 have seen him play'during the last two years will tell you-that Booth couldn't carry • welter's"; headgear into the park. Jack Qrpver, veteran, western official, calls' him one of the greatest players of this football generation.
