"'3 SMU RANKED NO. 1 BY BOTH GRID POLLS Blaik Defends Attack That His Army Cadets Have Weak Slate By WILL GBLMSLEV J?E\V YORK, Oct.- 31. {.?)-Army doesn't go uronVd --.feeling muscles and looking for soft spots in choosing Its JEootball opponents, ' Coach Earl (Red) Blaik said 'today in defending the Cadets'.schedule. "1 don't think our schedule needs a.defcnse,"-theW:st Point taskmaster declared. "Year in and year out w° play as tough teams' as anybody, in the country. "But I. know, thero .has been criticism of our card this year-1 don't know where thci get it." Blaik iaia the . Army -policy has- been to schedule seven big games and plant a couple of lighter iocs in-the middle somewhere to give the boys a chance to relax. That would explain.theappear- ance of Harvard, played Oct. 21; and.Xcw Mexico, to be met Nov. 11. "There's nothing u n u s u a l about that," the Army coach added m a telephone interview. "Practically' every team does it and some syot breathers every other game. "Look at the schedules of'Some of the other top 10 teams and you will find schedules .weaker than ours." Blaik said in Army's cas.e-it was especially necessary to give the team a letup once or twice" during the season's grind. ' ' - "The players aren't given any special - consideration at the "academy. It's 'up at 5-50 in the morning _ just "like the Other cadets and football practice until dark.J That makes it -very rough." Army's head strategist sa'id furthermore the schedules are made out three ,and four years, in advance and It's Impossible to tell how they will come out. "When we scheduled Penn State three year,s ago they were regarded as one of the best teams in the country," he said. (Penn'- State finished'fourth in 1947 hi the Associated Press' final poll.) , "We played Michigan. They were No. 1 -\\hen -we scheduled them. They were considered one of the best teams in the middle west this year--and still are. "Therc!s Pennsylvania that we get this week--nobody's calling them an easy touch. Colgate 'hasen't lost a game since rwe '-.beat' 'them.. Stanford was 'rated' the 'best team on the coast :bcfore the. season. Navy is always, tough, for us. "Then .'there are teams like. Columbia we have been playing for, years. They are up and down, naturally, but the Columbia we'beat Saturday could have beaten a lot of good teams. ,"No, sir, we don't ; need · to apologize to anybody on our schedule."

Miami .Advances ·Other .appreciable gains By SKIBO McKAY New Mexico's record may not ndicate its strength, but one thing s certain--its offensive formations are enough to keep an opposing -caching staff puzzled. This was the summaiy of Fred !nke's scouting, report yesterday or the Towncats;: boosters of the Arizona squad which meets the Jorder conference Lobos at Albu- uerque- Saturday afternoon in-- a homecoming .clash. Enke has watched New Mex- co perform twice this year and wice it lost--to Texas -Western nd last week to Wyoming, 44-0. But, 'regardless of records and earns, it-leans nothing when these wo clubs play," said Enke in y fe- ernng to Saturday's tilt. We will see. a variation of foot- all-under the New Mexico-system 'the- team, uses--a double-wing ormation, open and closed (ends vifle or close formation) and thi .ttack surprised Texas Wester dth -a-score in the first riiinut f- play'; . ·-' - .

So, you can never tell wha formation it will use next." Poor Defense Hurts Enke explained that in each gam he. saw -New- Mexico play its offens. was excellent. It was 1 just a. poo: defensive showing that defeated thi Lobos. Seven fumbles, of'· which four were recovered and resulted n touchdowns, were weak links in losing to Wyoming, the, 'toughes team in the Rocky Mountain re gion. He figures .that if New Mexico ever combines' good- offense with good- defense in the same game 7oach Dud DeGroot's bdys will be 'oughr and"this could.-.' possibly be made by Miami (Fla.) and lilinois.

No one seemed to know off-hanc how many of the major leaguers would be around tomorrow if the major-minor group g*ets its business completed today. There was an element of .mystery to the Mahal ma's visit.

The far westerners lave been'seeking for some time to have their players excluded from the major league draft. In return, club owners there say they'll refrain from drafting players from the lower minors.

''Both · conferences have ex changed: ideas, on.a new pact," said Wilson, .""but we haven't done" any thing .definite, yet,, and I don't think the Pacific Coast has either ."The Pacific Coast: conference apparently has a preference .for sending its champion every year.

THS Amphi, Faring Poorly, Meet Tough Foes This Friday By ACE BUSHNELL It's a sad but true .talc--Tucson shoots for its first "bis" g" win of 1950 this, week and Amphi theater again shoots for its fir«t win period.-And, what's cveii-sac!- der, both stand a good chance ot misfiring, thereby continuing a most dismal season for local high school football forces; Tlie lacklustre Badgers, with, "one class A victory (Yuma), one non-loop triumph (Bisbec), one tie (Theodore Bonsevclt) and three setbacks (Mesa, JTorth Phoenix, St Mary's), travels to' the state's capital city to engage a potent Phoenix Union eleven." , The undermanned and inexperienced Panthers, with six straight defeats (Mesa,'Phoenix Union, Glendale, St. Mary's, Phoenix Tech, YJima),-play host to a formidable Douglas club which 1 has whipped reasonably strong opposition and enjoyed several week ends of rest during the campaign. j. If THS Coach Jason Greet can reorganize his sporadic offense and patchwork defense in time to give the aWe Coyotes a run for their money Friday night, bte will deserve all kinds of laurels. His charges looked poor against St. Mary's- a Phoenix "Union victim, and the same way against Mesa, -which barely edged Johnny Black's boys., Of course,' the Badgers will' do their best to ialt 1950's em- arrassing pigskin proceedings, mt the road ahead appeaw-far from smooth. Conceivably, a 'fired up" Tucson- club- could hrow a scare into" the Phoc- · nicians. Yet, such:a spark, hasn't been exhibited by the Badgers often this fall. As for Coach Murl McCain and the Amphi situation, the outlook is worse. The north-side; ^squad, ' thm and young at the campaign's outset, lias -been riddled -with -: injuries and hurt by o plenty rugged' schedule. Center rlynn Clawson, a doubtful starter against Douglas, is the latest casualty. McCain and bis proteges can look forward to vast improvement In 1951, when most of the clan will b6 back, but there are a few seniors on the team who would like very much to taste sweet success right now. Per usual, they'll "shoot the works" against the Bulldogs. While Tucson and Amphitheater are thinking about better days, undefeated Mesa will be introducing Covlna, Calif., nigh to a .tough brand- of Arizona*- f oot- ball.
