. ; PAGE SIX Gobs Will Have Fine Chance to Upset Army's Strong Eleven. By WILLIAM BKAL'CHER NBA Service Spirts Editor "What a tough bieak for the Navy-" Thus spake the experts when H .vas announced that Army will con- lescend to play the Navy Dee. 13 .n New York City for the benefit -f the unemployed. For & (line. 1 bought so, loo, but-lalely 1 have 'regun to wonder it the Army will '•»ve so much good clean fun sink- .'ng the Middles, after all. • A football team never Is beaten, "ney tell me. until 60 minutes have ' een played. The Navy appears to '•-i the underdog In this scuttle, but -3 was Princeton against Yale. And • always will think Princeton beat •'ale this year, though the score 'ndicates that Yaie won. You can't • \sh a moral victory at the ticket ••indow, of course, but the profit '•om a fat mental wager often Is Just as satisfying. * • • The Army hns a swift, deceptive • tlack. Major Sasse has shown the '."aydels how Pop Warner got that •;ay. There is no Cagle at the Point, tut the team functions rather 'well •3 a unit, with all hands turning > with healthy vigor. There are a Couple of charming ends in the persons of Carlmark nnd Messln- tr. In the front line there Is same l.ulk and strength at spots, espe- •rially where Captain Polly Hinn' er numbers around. Even without .Jy Letzelter, who has been ruled rut because of old age, the bnck- leld, with Spinner Herb. Fields. Xilday and a couple of others, is -mart and strong. The Army has been taking trench ^fter trench, without a setback 'in Is first eight games. It is true, the •chedule hasn't been so very tough, .hat a victory was barely eked out over Harvard nnd that Yale held Ihe Soldiers to a 7 to 7 tie. Army 1 "las achieved, however, the habit of victory, and the coaches say that's .1 good habit to have. • » • At first glance, the Navy seems "o have done rather bndly this year. Out of Us first seven games, Navy won three and lost to Ohio, Southern Methodist, Notre Dnine nnd '""_ They Will BaiiTHFor .!

The Navy has not shown any great deception in attack but there is power in the forward line, where Hagberg, from down Pollansbee, VI. Va., way, is one of the standouts. The Middies lack guile on offense if a repertoire of tricks is what you mean, but Lou Kirn helps to make up for the lack of deception. The Milwaukee boy can take a football on a common old cutback play and lope right over lhe hills, taking a couple of tacklers along for a ride. Besides Kirn in the backficld there is Johnny Gannon, a squatty lad from Lodi, Calif., who throws outcurves with the pigskin. » • * The people who pay their bucks to attend the proceedings, besides getting a load of Army-Navy color and tradition, and helping the cause of charity, may be buying attendance at an -actual football game, even though the Navy mi?ht appear, after cursory examination of the two teams, to be a setup The newspaper ,i-riters will be admitted at a cover charge of $50 per seat, and even at that, I am told, several of them are goin:; thinking the event a night club opening or an auction sale of a fe battleships.

The Kan has handed her defeats her last two Thanksgiving Day contests. Arkansas' football championship this season hinges, then, on two important games. Two of the teams have come to the end of the season just as they did last Jail, victorious down to the last week, with the possibilities for winning the same as t~y are this year, and the two teams with which these two greater teams are matched are, as they were last year, easily out of the race. Yet not one. would say that either Henderson Teachers or Hendrix-Henderson College will have an easy afternoon next Thursday. As a'matter of fact, a point that has been proved through years o'f play, those two games will be as hard fought as any other two Ar- morial Stadium. It Is to sec which side of a town Is best, and a quarrel in the family may be hard and an inspired fight. This is another 'act proved by years of play. The whole Idea has become history. Whether it proves that history does run In cycles and doe^ repeat itself, whether it proves that nistory may have-an economic Interpretation, or whether It prove that football will one day be played In Calcutta, the fact that ncxl Thanksgiving Day .wilt witness two nard games and possibly a new state champion remains. [•kansas games thfs I practice begins in year. When Arkadelphia early each September, Ouachita sets her head on two games. She plays to win her annual game from Hendrix-Henderson and to win her Thanksgiving contest from Henderson. Arkansas State Teachers goes to work before the season opens in much the same way. If she wins no other game all year and then noses Hendrix-Hende'-Ron into a ditch, her season will have been successful. There Is '* -went something in ;nese two teams. Perhaps it is the fact that both Henderson Teachers and Ouachita are in the same town and that Arkansas Teachers and Hendrix-Henderson College are in the same her two sons play. FENNIMOHE, Wis.
