Arbelbide's best, work is on offense, where he hits an opposing tacXle or guard with fcrce. He is j big asset in the Jones system of V line' play—or -in any otter system for'"that matter. Baker has-been developing for the,'last two years. until this season finds him with exceptional poise and, finesse. He Ttas perhaps the best pass receiver of the year. " Conley of Notre Dame was an aggressive end and inspiring leader, whose great value to his team was overshadowed by the more brllliunl •erplblts of some of his teammates. Alabama.

Sington was placed on 30 first team selections out of 33- Big, fast powerful and aggressive, this 220- pound southerner was the key man in Alabama's great power attack that swept ever and around all op-' position. On defense, Sington was continually In the opponent's buck- si eld, always on the ball, brol-r' up pcss attacks, blocked kicks and recovered fumbles in every game.
