AMPHI HOSTS YUMA: TUCSON PLAYS MESA f · ' ' - '· sports pages "of a recent Lc^Angeles Times almost escaped us during house-cleaning of'a few days collection of news scripts. A casual glance at :Braven Dyer's "Sports Parade" introduced us to 'various 'points of interest in Wash- 1 ington, where our old acquaintance-'visHed over the weekend with the Trojans playing Navy'at Baltimore. Moving through the column for several paragraphs, we came across a statement that Southern Cal visits Army next year at New York. On down we read--quote, . "Speaking of Army, did you know, that the Cadets play Now. Mexico this season? That's the team, which was thumped by West Texas State, wherever that is, 45 to. 6. The Army sure picks 'em tough." To better associate the Pacific Coast with our ow Border conference, West Texas State is located.'at Canyon Texas, a community not much larger in area than the: US campus. But, that small school is on the"verge of runnin away with championship laurels in the sagebrush circui In regards to Army slating New -Mexico, that unde powered grid force has no business 1 on'the same field wit the Cadets, it is admitted. On a xecent.trip-,to New Mexico home grounds the townspeople were naming their own point anything under 70 ·'for the game. ' But,' go back further, to the war years if necessarj when Army was being heralded" as the greatest three-yea team in existence. On those Cadet slates you will find man weak sister opponents as you will still see in this era. It. is helievcd to be a piece; of ingenuity on the part of the Lobo Coach D«d DeGroot that the game was ar ranged. DeGroot is undoubtedly of the opinion that even in losing to a team like Army, there results more prestige than defeating some of its neighboring rivals, regardless of known strength in this vicinity only. * * · * · ' * ' Thirty-five right and 11 wrong-last week brought .Score £ Underscpres football predictions to a season's aggregat of 143 wins and. 40 losses in major'interest selections.

Max Henkel, top-rated sports publicity man with an t eye for possible statistics figures to be broken'for the TJniyersity of Arizona, reports some interesting .data for this corner: . · . ^ " Among individual player marks, two records have al" ready been equalled in Arizona's first five games. Left Half . Eddie Wolgast tied .Bill Hargis' 1930 record of an 81-yard run from, scrimmage with a similar gain against Colorado last week. And, Quarterback Bruce McCauley tied Fred Enke's 1947 mark of throwing :the longest pass from scrimmage--54 yards--when he flipped to Kurt Storch for a touchdown against West Texas State in the opener. Wolgast also ,is in position .to equal or break Charlie Hall's 1947 record in net rushing. That year,'Hall, ran'for 686 net yards. Wolgast, in five games thus far, has gained.389. In team records there are many that could be smashed this year. The 1941 Wildcat group attempted 231 passes for the school's record. This year's bunch has attempted 122 in five gameVThe record mimb.er of completions was set in 1941 with 106. It is close this year at the half-way mark of the slate with 48. A total of 37 touchdowns were scored in 1941 as compared to this year's 17, another foreseen mark. In total offense, the 1941 aggregation rolled _ _ __ up 3,571 yards. The 1950 group has a reading of 1,649. O ver Yuma, 27-0, and Amphi, 50-7, A single game attendance mark was established this year and Mesa successes over Yuma, 33 in- the opener against West Texas State when almost 18,000 i^;andjvmphi, 23-0. _ filed into, the-new stadium here. The former record, was 16,834 against Texas Western last year. The total attendance record for one-season is in danger since : over 34,000 have seen two home.games with four to go whereas the all-time high w a s 87,499'in 1949. ' . ' . - · · !

They're fightin' mad, 'as is everyone'up in the Panthers! lair, and they have reason to believe the day of reckoning is here. , McCain sent his team through :he season's, stiffest week of prac- ice sessions in preparation" for onight's-encounter.

Only Half- jack Walt Stead, with a bad knee, nd possibly Guard Dave · Cocklin, vith the flu, will be missing from .ction against the Criminals. The north siders want this one-ad!y.. After taking it on the chin rom four class A clubs and po.wer- ul "independent" St. Mary's, they vant to see what it feels like to vin.
