TEN THE CORSICANA, (TEXAS) DAILY SUN, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1950. Corsicana Meets Hillsboro In Conference Game Coach Boyd Payne Expects Tough Contest Tonight State Home Lads Invade Hubbard In Top B Melee By TALMADGE CANANT Sun Sports Staff The Corsicana Tigers were ready Friday for their game with Hllls- boro's surprising Eagles on Tiger Field at 8 o'clock. The Eagles, surprising because of their sterling performance against the Waco Tigers last week, go into this game the underdog by about 45 points. That, saya Tiger coach Boyd Payne, is "a dangerous" situation for the local crew. "We expect a tough ball game," Payne said Friday morning. "I hope we can go." No Tiger Injuries There were no serious Injuries In the Corsicana camp through the tapering off exercises Thursday afternoon. Wednesday Corsicana ran through defenses on Hillsboro pass- Ing and running plays from the T-wlng and double-wing formations, and then tapered off with brush- ups on their own offensive. Principal R. A. Armlstcad at the local school said Friday morning that the Tiger Field gates •would be opened tonight between 6:30 and 7 o'clock. The earlier opening hour was shunned because "It is too hard on our ticket-talc- ing personnel to have to work In this wind for all those hours." This will give the early-comers an hour or more In which to get In the stadium and get their seats. Hillsboro Coach P. T. Gallga put his veteran Eagles through a light workout in game uniforms Thursday afternoon. Strange as it may deem, Hillsboro rates the edge in experience, but Corsicana the edge In weight in the game tonight. Dollar Scatback Charles Dollar, a scatback of the A. M. Donoho & Son Radiator Shop PHONE 166 221 West 7th Avenue Speedy Sophomore by Pap' first water, is the principal ground- gainer for the Eagles, and the center of the Hillsboro line is plenty rugged. The guards are Co-captains David Hawk and Charles Pollard, the latter a candidate for all- district honors. The tackles are Don Duke and Walton Weatherred, weighing in at 186 and 196 pounds, respectively. Reserve strength is reported lacking, however. Corsicana's starters will vary, depending on whether or not the Tigers kick or receive. The probable first string of Charles Stack and David Corley at ends: L'avelle Isbell and John Dearen at tackles; Jim Wood and Bob Malcolm at guards; Harvey McNeil at center; Duane Nutt, Kenneth Stegall, Rayburn Matthews and Jim Cravens In the backfield will prevail. A good crowd is expected out for the game, despite temperatures that will be uncomfortable, at the least. Bulldogs to Bryan Navarro Junior College leaves on Saturday morning for Bryan, where it plays Allen Academy in the second conference game of the season. The game is set for 2:30 Saturday afternoon. Winner over Bllnn by a 34-7 count last week, Navarro is due to have tougher sledding against the Ramblers . "I look for a good ball-game," Coach Ken Clark said Friday. "Allen Academy has a good ball club, Don't Be Left Out — For — Baylor .vs Texas FOOTBALL GAME November llth Get your tickets now while seats are available! Address - - Ticket Manager, B. U.

Allen Academy will outweigh Navarro slightly in the line. The Bulldogs are in good shape for the contest. No hampering injuries are on the squad, Clark said Friday. State Home Laddies go to Hubbard tonight for one of their toughest tests on the road to a third consecutive 22-B grid title. Some quarters point to a Lad defeat tonight at the hands of the high scoring Jaguars. The game gets under way at 7:30. Other class B games find Kerens at Blooming Grove for a whlngding battle; Frost at Dawson and Bynum at Italy. o California Is Coast Favorite BERKELEY, Calif., Nov. 10.— (IP) —Championship standings and Rose Bowl chances will be at stake here Saturday when the undefeated California Bears and the once-beaten University of California at Los Angeles Bruins clash in their all- important Coast conference football classic. It's the "game of the year" for the two powerful rivals. A capacity crowd of 81,000 Is expected to watch the contest. Traditional rivalry of the keenest sort adds color to the annual encounter. The Bruins were once the "baby brothers" of the Bears. They've grown up long since. Under Henry "Red" Sanders, the former Vanderbilt coach, they have been downright formidable tho post two years. California, which goes Into action Saturday with the only un- blemlsh record in or out of the conference, ranked 5th In this week's Associated Press national poll. UCLA, 19th in the poll, has lost to Washington. 20-21, in the league, and 6-14 to Illinois. Lynn (Pappy) Waldorf, who left comparative coachilng ' security after 12 years ,at Northwestern for a job then known as "a coach's graveyard" at California, has become a "wonder man" here. Since his first team in 1947 lost to Southern California, 14-39, portly Pappy has produced two Rose Bowl clubs and hasn't dropped a conference game. The California football slate as of today numbers 21 consecutive league victories and 31 wllns in a row for regular seasosn play. The Bears lost Rose Bowl engagements to Ohio State last New Year's day and to Northwestern, the year be fore. * Relax in a Turkish Bath— Try one at the Y. M. C. A.— second floor.

SPORT NOTES B; PAUL MOORE • Dally Sun Sports Editor Many Corsicana fans will see the Southwest conference struggles In Waco and Dallas Saturday. Corsicana and Hillsboro clash In their traditional tilt tonight at Tiger Field. Jack Proctor of the Times-Review, lambasts Cleburne District 13-AA as a district of weaklings and without a real ball club in his column Tuesday Among his ravings were. •• • "Had the Jackets remained in District 13-AA for another season, they no dout-t would have brought home the district bunting with great ease this season....the consistent powers of District 13-AA Waco, Temple and Corsicana, appear to be plenty weak sisters this season You can wager your last farthing that Corsicana beat Waxnhachie by every point it possibly could... .Remember how the Tigers were passing for a score when the final whistle blew at Cleburne last those other year, They scores, too, needed about like they needed holes in the head. The score was 60-odd to 0. We will say, any team which allows Waxahachie to score first this season, does not belong In the same world with the Cleburne Yellow Jackets, much less the same football stadium x x Other than Corsicana, all of the District 13 teams have bit the dust this season, but take a gander at the Corsicana schedule. Strictly class B or Junior High at best. Yet the Tigers will no doubt win the district championship this year. Then where? To the bl-dis- trlct fields, where they will rtcelve their lumps in large measure." Isn't it bad? He apparently can't get over the shellacking administered last year, but If our memory serves us correctly, Cleburne has scored 60-odd margins this year. He censures Corsicana and declares his coach could not help running up scores—but It is done with malice aforethought by Corsicana.... And about the weak district .and poor record of Corsicana, the Ben- gals have scored more points than Cleburne—and Corsicana has as good a chance of getting out of the district as has Cleburne—In fact, Cleburne will be the underdog when they meet the hard-driving Breckenridge Buckaroos In the district....If Cleburne is . good enough, they might meet Cdfslcana in the state finals. All dopesters. however, are predicting that Cleburne will not get out of the district—except Proctor—who predicted Waco would defeat Corsicana a couple of weeks ago. And It might bo added, Cle- liurno has been In this district a long time, but It has been decades since they won a district bunting when the district was weak or Strong—generally tne latter.' Blalr Cherry steps out at Texas coach at the end of the present season despite three more years of his contract... .His successor has not been indicated, but this department offers the name of Ed Price, a Corsicana product and line coach, as a nominee... .He was a four- letterman here in high school and captained three Southwest conference champion clubs in football, basketball and baseball at Texas U. ...Cherry, 49, a former resident of Kerens, is a TCU graduate and turned out fine clubs at Ranger, North Side and Amarillo High Schools before going to Texas OS assistant to D. X. Bible In 1937, succeeding Bible when he retired as coach to devote his entire tmle to the athletic directorship.... Cherry coached the Amarillo Sandies who defeated Corsicana High here in 1930, 33-28, in the semifinals of the schoolboy race .... Cherry's Longhorns have been high-rankling crews all three years he has guided the club, losing several hard-luck decisions Whether nis announcement of his retirement will affect his Longhorns' play during the remainder of the season remains tc be seen.
