'(A R K . 1 V_MK R Brilliant Centers Gird For Battle •j Chickasaws Practice Under Hudson's Eye; Low On Reserve Material, Under the watchful eye of Coach He,nry Hudson. the firsi signal praciice o( the season was litld yesterday afternoon at Haley Field as prospective candidates for t!ie 1030 Chlckasaw varsity were put through iheir paces. The first eleven that Jlncd up at Ihe call of Conch Hudson yesterday appeared far different (ram the Maroon and While machine that represented Blytheville hiuli in 1929 and smashed through a strenuous season with the loss of but one game, a defeat by Pine BHiff in the j first tussle of the season. Only five lellcrmen frcm the 18 who re ccived their tnlliais last fall appeared in the grey, clad crew ycs- Irrday afternoon and it Is around these five men that Hudson must build a machine to face a fornfld- 1 able schedule this season starling with the Earle game on Sept. 20. Although Hudson has been sorely hit by the loss of veteran let- tcrmen. he apparently hns, not lost much If any weight based upon the team that galloped across the gridiron yesterday. Youngsters' (roin Coach Glenn Durham's reserve squad, who have taken on pounds and brawn through the summer, will be relied on by Hudson In the present campaign. The first eleven to run signals yesterday lined up with George Matthews, who proved a sensational in 1029, at center, Alexander and Colston at guards, Jiiggers nnd Capt. Harder nt tackles ind Clmrles Gordon and Bone at the wings. In Ihe backfield, J. T. Craig barked signals, Pete Craig, Tommy Short and I. O. Weslbrook completed the line-up. Others were -soon sent Into the first siring line-up for the first, signal session and among those who appear certain to cop varsity berths are Wiggins MacFee nnd Luckctt. This Mac-Fee youngster nlthciigh rather small appears to be one of the sweetest prospects on Ihe field. He rnn ' signals for the Central high reserves at Memphis last year and got a taste of signal calling here, ycstcrny. ,7f he shows any marked'ability at the quarter post he is likely to snare the Job as [he berth-will be n hard one for HiKlscn to fill this year. Uut glancing over his group of reserves Hudson may find his hardest problem and one that Is almost Impossible to sol re—a decides Jack of capable reserves outsido liis first 15 cr 10 men. The lack of reserves may prove the biggest handicap in building a grid machine that will not go to pieces if one of-the mnln gogs would be disabled. Hudson could use a few big strong 175 pounders and speedsters and if the Chick mentor knew where they were coming from he would not lose much sleep over his prospects as they lined up yesterday. . - - McGraw Marches On John J.

It was his duty to absorb tlie shock of a joal- vard attack and stop the plnv without being mashed completely nto the turf. With the football style'of loday lowever, the snaoner-back becomes more than an animated door mat. He becomes a leader on defens 0 diagnosing- plays and shifting hi- position to meet the attack. On offense he becomes an inlerferer mocking over halfbacks in the secondary defense to make a path fo" Ids own ball-carriers.

Ben Ticknor also will argur with anybody who says the football rules should be changed and that points after touchdown should be eliminated. Incidentally, tlu Crimson leader, who won perhaps more All-America ratings than any other center a year ago, hopes that he never has to play against a better center than Hal Andres, this year's Dartmouth captain. They clashed last year—and they clash again this year. The date Is October 25 in Harvard stadium, and the young man who gets the better of the argument that afternoon may be the next All-America center. Two other eastern schools and cne Dixie school also selected star centers to captain their elevens this fall. They are Tom Siano of Ford!:am, Bill Morris of Georgetown and Preacher Roberts of Tulane In the case of Sluno, his was a reelection to the Fordhnm captaincy, which is ample proof that they believe in his football playing ability.
