Texas Eleven Class of Con- feience; Koch Is Best of Group. , •'••> \ .--— • ."".. By' CtAIHE BURCKY •j • NBA Senrtc*. Sports Writer v Any alt-star (ootbalt team selected in the Southwest Conference for the 1930 season will offer- csnclu- i-Ive proof .that throwing-the bull ,«nd.tossing a Texas steer nrouml by the i horns are two entirely .dlf- ierent'forms of diversion. . There Is an old adage to the of- ;teci that a call, If given E'.ifflrkn! -rope, will'-become von) cutleb. It ,1s evident,. then, after one glnnc: at the Soutlwest's honor roll, llmt a Texo longhorn Is a far more Intelligent fritter than the ordinary offspring of. ihe genus Bossy. The naming of six University of .Texas players on the first"tcam nn4 a seventh on the second clearly indicates ihe • superiority of' ths gteers .over, the .remainder of the conference .schools';- . After losing ^he first loop 'game to Rice by a « to 0 score, the. Lbnghorns went on a ,s£impede that carried IKem to victory over Southern Mcthod- Ut, BtjloVTexas Christian and Texas'Aggies,, giving them undisputed dam Ito the championship.

C U 'blond blizzard," lacked the class or-thcse men, kelarid's nmln lort< ,w«s speed, and there \vas hardly enough of it to mnkc up for deficits in other departmenls. '_ Selecting a center was no simple fastlme, for this loop of seven members disclosed a trio of.pivot joen cpmparaWe witli any organization" in'• the country. '. Hosrover. observers from the coaching and officiating ranks contended that Atkins, T O-, U s tall leader, was superior at directing defensive play, which g»ve mm the call over Para- deaiix of Baylor and- Hp«-|e o: Texas. .• ' ' ... ! Barton Koch,, the Baylor ca->- tftin, probably will be named, nt guard on n majority of All-America teams. He ;ddes not seem to move wiih'nny great r.rmum c! •sp'rjghlllncss, yet ne nuy lis founl iVay out i:i front en int-irfprcn:? ! runs because he : knows' how to pull out of Q line and break In [ ahead of the ball carrier. Til? {same is true of Ox Emerson, but j his wcrk • hardly approaches that • of the Bear captain'. There wns only one man In a class ulth Blaiiton and Skcelers nt tackle play and he liappjncd lo be a cower by first choice. }lc wus Paradcaux, who straddled the oynl on offense and shifted to tackle en >lic defense.

Because so many learns had exceptional wide-miming attacks this season, outstanding vvlngmen were few. Long stood out as U.ic stroiig- cst. He figured prominently in Southern .Methodist's famsrt "aerial circus." He handled the Noire Dame tackles by himself. He frequently played nt defensive halfback against strong passing teams.

It was the snmc year wild-eyed coirespondents sent out the story from Hot Springs that Colons! Til Huston had-Elgned Babe Huth .to a contract that provided lor payment of $500 for every home run the Babe socked. Shono was leaning on the porter's desk looking out over the lobby where Everett Scott, Babe .Huth, Al. Devormer and a couple of others were deeply engaged in a game of hearts. Kibitzers stood tiround the table where the players were perrui'mmg. • * * Strange Sounds A tourist sat reading a newspaper about 12 feet from the spot where Shono was standing. At the side of his chair was a huge brass cuspidor. Now and then the tourist turned to look at the cuspidor. Strange sounds came from . the brass fixture. •' "Ding, ding, ding," was the sound, as though tiny pieces of metal were falling from the ceiling. ':• There. would be a pause, the stranger would turn back, to his paper and the sounds, with the regularity of a little bell tinkling, :would start again. The stranger began to grow nervous. HtUo! What's Tills! Suddenly something invisible struck the man on the back of his neck. He brushed at it with his hand, looked long and carefully at the celling, moved his chair and 'again took up his paper. Then the invisible objects dropped iipon his hat. He took off his hat and looked a't it. He gazed intently around the floor near where he had been sitting. Suddenly he stooped and picked something up. ,It was a tiny.round black piece of metal. .; "Meanwhile, the stranger's plight hid attracted attention. The ki- bifzers left the card game and became solicitous for the man's welfare.
