I think today's football game has improved a lot. It has been opened up with the new rules and the quipment is better. The player is about the same as he was in my day. The one platoon system is back on the college football fields again this year and I think It's a very sensible attitude the NCAA has taken.

' These are the ones In which the victims were either not seen by the shooter; the victim was struck as the shooter swung his gun just before firing, or the victim moved into the line of fire as the trigger was pulled. These make up the bulk of the causes of hunting tragedies, one study of accidents shows. But in a general way the first and fifth commandments cover the situations. "Treat every gun with the respect of a loaded gun," the first says, and "be sure of your target before you pull the trigger/' warns the fifth. • Painful results from shooters stumbling or falling—another fair- £'?i«l?.'lly common problem. — might be modified by observance of the fourth admonition: "Always carry your gun so that you can control Chlllicoth© Joy Kelthshurft Davenport Kewanee Moline Lincoln Thufiday at at at at At at *at at Friday at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at» at . at at GMva Macomb Avon Atexis Aledo Knoxville Little York Peoria Woodruff Galcibura Glid«ton«-0.

By JACK FROST BOSTON (UP)— Indifferent Harvard, playing football for the fun of it, apparently was establishing a New England trend today that promised to give the game back to the boys. Fresh from their season-opening 16-0 victory over "minor league" Ohio University, the Crintson Fathers heard the anguished cries of "de-emphasis*' from across the placid Charles River on the campus of usually bowl'-minded Boston College. **Our inter-sectional games will be cut sharply from now on," an- 'em instead of outman 'em." But the pros, on the other hand, benefit by the two platoon system. They pass too much to make the single platoon practical. They'd run their legs off trying to keep up with the ball. And two guys last longer on their legs than one. I think college football coaching is going to be tougher. You are going to have to teach a boy more football. It'll slow the game but not too obviously. The players soon will learn how to pace themselves to last out the four quarters on the field. High Individual Roy Cruys 526 John Campbell 522 . - c.

He volunteered to broadcast the games, help Eddie Stanky manage the club and after each game rush down and help sweep out the clubhouse. An advertising agency is auditioning not-so-diversified applicants. Anheuser-Busch Brewery, new owner of the club, did not renew the contract of Griesedieck Brothers Brewery which sponsored the broadcasts in the past. You can't buy auto insurance T T" manager of athletics at the Jesuit college that Frank Leahy left to gain fame at Notre Dame- Smarting under a 42-6 walloping at the hands of Louisiana State University that followed a 14-14 tie with Clemson, Curley indicated B, C. would follow the lead of ancient Harvard. "It is my hope to keep Holy Cross and Fordham as annual, opponents, with other dates to be filled by colleges in our class/' he said. "I'm all for it," said Coach Mike Holovak, an Ail-American at the college that landed in Cotton, Sugar and Orange bowls in the past. It was an echo of the pronouncement of Paul Buck while provost at Harvard following the 1950 season. In 1949 the inept Crimson traveled to the West Coast and a 44-0 slaughter at the hands of Stanford. Columbia, Cornell, Army, Dartmouth, Princeton, Brown and Yale followed, Saturday after Saturday of suicide for Harvard that lived strictly with the amateur rules. Only Stanford was missing from the 1950 schedule. Then policy changed. Springfield, Washington University and Davidson appeared. Buck said Harvard would not abandon football like Chicago but would "play the game" against colleges whose educational standards and strength was similar. There would be no "over scheduling." "We're enjoying football this year," said Coach Lloyd Jordan. "The spirit is great." Athletic Director Tom BoLfes said Harvard was keeping more and more within the Ivy League. Opponents include Columbia* Brown, Princeton, Yale, and Dartmouth— the latter smarting under two straight beatings, 28-6 by Holy Cross, 55-7 by Navy, Brown was making no policy announcements. But the schedule that included Amherst, Rhode Island and Connecticut indicated it was following the Crimson line. Angels Rehire Stan Hack LOS ANGELES M — Stan Hack, manager of the Los Angeles baseball club for the past three years, was rehired today. By JOE REICI1LER NEW YORK UP)—Offhand, prospects for dethroning the world champion New York Yankees and National League-ruling Brooklyn Dodgers do not appear overly bright. Both the Yankees and Dodgers must improve their pitching. Only four of the 12 starting hurlers were able to go the route. Eddie Lopat and Preacher Ror did it in the second game and Vic Raschi and Carl Erskine in the third. Erskine is the only one of this quartet who figures to better his 1953 record. The others are past 35 and cannot be counted on to be more than once-a-week starters. Allie Reynolds, the Yankee ace, who has the added handicap of recurring muscular spasms in his back, may decide not to come back at all next year. Manager Eddie Stanky declared his St. Louis Cardinals as well as the New York Giants, Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Braves would have to improve by 20 per cent to overtake the Dodgers. Cleveland Manager Al Lopez admitted his second place Indians could not catch the Yankees with the present personnel. Managers Casey Stengel of the Yankees and Chuck Dressen of the Dodgers are confident they will repeat next year but admit they are worried about their club's pitching. "This same team with some add trade with anybody who will trade with us." Stengel frankly is afraid that Reynolds, Raschi, Lopat and John Sain may fold next year. In fact the only pitcher he is satisfied will be a big winner again is Whitey Ford, his young southpaw. He is hopeful that Steve Kraly, up from Binghamton; Tom .Morgan, now in the Army; Bob Weisler of Kansas jCity; and Jim McDonald, a holdover, will form the nucleus of a new moufld staff. Stengel believes in Phil Rizzuto, Bill} Martin, Gil McDougald, Gerry Coleman and Andy Carey he has top infield talent. Casey also ib high on outfielders Gene Woodling, Hank Bauer, Mickey Mantle and Irv Noren with Bill Renna, Bob Cerv and Bill Skowron-in reserve. Dressen is counting on Don Newcombe, big Negro righthander, now in the Army to strengthen the bodger mound staff. Newk is slated to be discharged Feb. 27. "If we had Newcombe in the series, we would have breezed in," said Dressen. Touch Football For Recti PORTLAND, Ore. l#i —Players at Reed College have voted to quit regulation football and compete only in touch football games. Scheduled games with George Fox College, Oregon College of Education and Portland State Jayvees have beert cancelled. Reed is a small independent school that has gained a fairly wide reputation for scholarship. The players said there didn't seem to be much interest in football this year.
