GET THE MONEY OR I'LL GET OUT: BAKER Denver Goach DedWe '·- ,,· · Sounds Off To Alumni Group For $150,000 He Could Produce Good Club By TOM LAWRTE DENVER, Oct. 31;- (U.R);--Coach John BaKer of defeat-ridcfen Denver university told alumni today v it costs $50,000 a year to produce a winning football-team,, and either to "get it up orTll get the hell out.' Baker ma^e.the statement to the Denver, .boosters' club when he found the membership-in obvious misery over the team record of one ·victory, one tie and five losses for this season, "You Denver :fans have been complaining all year and asking why we don't get a football team," Baker said. "I'm getting' mighty tirsd of losing.myself. .Give me'the use of 550,000 for. three, years and I'll give you a foq'tball-team-- if I don't I'll get '.the hell out." Following the. Arizona-Denver game hero last Saturday :night, Coach Bob, Winslow of :the Arizona team visited Coach Johnny Baker's, dressing quarters for a general discussion of the game and: old times in 'California football tanks. - . . - . Baker'was twice overheard as saying -to- TVinslow,. "This Is a hellavn way to. -make a' living isn't it, Bob?". By his tone vi expression it was known 'that night that Denver university alumni. were against him and the team's showing. The 50 grand Baker wants, along with his present coaching staff, is all on- the, up-.and-up. He wants the tear-drenched alumni to come across-with some good jobs so that he can get some football players to enroll at Denver., . Worse In 1951 "We're not going to have a win ning team if we don't do something right:now," Baker said, "Our freshman team was beaten, 69 to 6, by the Wyoming frosh last week enc Title Saturdav^-Maybe , - v - ·*/ «,/ By HAROLD V. RATLIFF (This is-the fifth in.a'serie* of stories reviewing college foot ball iy major conferences. DALLAS, Oct. 31. (ff)~Jt's probably assuming too much, in Tiew of the'way they play,'their football hereabouts, but general opinion is that the Southwest conference champion will be determined whan Southern Methodist and Texas, meet at Austin next Saturday, 'f Nothing ever is .certain in this tough old- league until the last gua shoots. Teams that-couldn't win by forfeit on one Saturday become gridiron giants" the-nixt week when they face rivals that have given them some- bitter moments. Upsets are the' rule almost as mnch. as. the exception. The schools are dose together, each has a particular blood rival. All in all, it's rocky travel down the November pigskin trail. Southern Methodist, No. 1 team of the nation, is undefeat- ed and untied. Texas, rated No. 7, has lost only one game--that 'to outsider ..Oklahoma, 14-13. SfSIl" and Texas are the only teams unbeaten in conference play. - After -Saturday, Texas still must play'Baylor, Texas Christian and Texas A. and M. South- ·era Methodist must meet Texas A., and 'M., Baylor, Arkansas and Texas" Christian. There isnt a softeapot, the, way they play it down.here. Take last week when -Baylor, relegated to the cellar, rose up to smack* down what.ap- peared to be the .-best A. and M. tedm in 10 years, 2T-20. , The conference has done'very well in intersectional play this campaign with a 12-7 record against outside foes. But that's just warm-up stuff. A team may be No. 1 in the nation in the east but it's looked upon as Just another eleven, against which there is a Ibng-standing grudge, when the boys get together in their family squabbles. Mathematically, all teams «tUI are in the race for the title or' a share of it. Bice and Arkansas, however, each have' lost two games and their chances of taking 'a piece of the pennant are pretty small. A and M, Texas Christian and Baylor each have ·won one. and lost. one. -'' There never has been more individual outstanding stars aid the conference anticipates "that at least, two 'will land on the All- America. Kyle Rote, the great running, passing back of.South- ern Methodist, is the leader. Among the^ others, Andy Hillhouse, Texas A and M., en4 who catches passes, in his hip-pocket and plays a great defensive game, and lewis (Bud) McFadin, ma«- - sive Texas guard' noted for his offense, are considered top candidates. *. Southern Methodist Js one of two teams in the area with undefeated, untied records. The other is Abilene Christian college, which meets Texas ,A and I,at Abilene Saturday, night with the Texas, conference title- In the balance. Among'the other conferences, West'Texas State, which hadnt lost a game until last week when felled 27-20 by, Trinity of the Gulf Coast conference, is favored to . win the .border conference title; Trinity looks like the best bet In the Gulf Coast and SnI Boss, leading the Lone Star conference, appears to -have Its strongest competition c o m i n g from Bast Texas State. None of the Independents-East Texas Baptist, Daniel Baker, University of Corpus Christl, Texas Lutheran or Lamar Tech-has anything like a good record' although Lamar already hag been selected to plisy in the Silver Bowl in Mexico City Dec. 16. Lamar will play the National Mexican .champion. (Tomorrow's story--the. far west). ' Tuesday'Evenlni,:Oet. 31, 1950- Iturwm Bulls QHltirti 16 A 1 C" f\ 1*£* 1 LM.

The speedy-26-year-old end, former Detroit'Lions and University of Michigan star, is jobless. "I must Jiave been" blackballed--| t just doesn't .-make sense-that I'm uddenly not good enough to make a single, team In the league,". Mann aid. To Touch. Yictory Armando', Rico, a handy man with a football; could do no wrong yesterday'as he set. the pace for the umph. over the Safford Panthers. Bracamonte stopped-Panther runners' for safeties in: the first and from .Albert Astorga' for a fourth quarter touchdown. Ramon Badilla accounted for the other touchdown . . . , - - . . on a'75-yard, run following an in- Roskruge' Midgets, who' whipped tercepted-pass in the third period. and that's just the beginning. If York Yanks in payment for Bobby we don't do something, next year Is going to be the worst In history.' Denver university is a school with enrollment of just short of 12,000 students.-Yet, only 26 men suited · up for the Denver frosh against Wyoming. "Why, I've had a chance to gel ·ome good football prospects rlghl here in Denver but when a good job couldn't be found for them they shoved off for lusher pastures," Baker said. Other Denver officials were quiet on Baker's demand for the $50,000 Last week, Chancellor Alfred C Jacobs said that he liked to see the Pioneers win but that "we must not let this desire unduly color our proper perspective. I insist that the boys enjoy the games they play." Baker said, "If I could beat Wyoming on Thanksgiving I would waive a year's salary,". That, however, seems a far cry. Wyoming · once a doormat, Is the top team in the Rockies again this year, thanks to the sor$ of backing- that the Denver coach seeks. . Three years igo Coach Bowden Wyatt was. lured 'from Mississippi State. 'Wyoming, had never won a championship..- Wyatt, gave .-the school its first .last year,-and a second is virtually assured'.this year --possibly a bowl bid. Cowboy boosters give Wyatt anything he asks for and the campus is sprinkled-with plenty of southern ball players. · · · , End Zone Fumble Wins For Injuns A bounding fumble, recovered in the enemy's .-end zone by Manny Carrillo, was'responsible last night for the Carrillo Tornadoes' 6-0 victory over Rariek's Indians in the city touch football league at Santa Rita park. The Braves missed a possible tie or win when a touchdown pass was caught just out 'of pay dirt territory. · ' In the evening's second contest, Joe Castille sparked the Santa Rita Raiders 'to a hard-waged triumph over the Santa. Rosa Wildcats, 12-7. Castille hauled in fine tosses from Sonny Law to account for much of the Raiders' offensive punch and sew up the contest. His defensivej efforts were also outstanding. Led 1949 Receivers Last year, Mann led the National 'ootball league in yards gained hrough. pass receptions with 1,014 ards, and placed second to.Los Angeles' Tom Fears jn catches with 66. He contends the NFL has adopted a "hands .off" policy toward him ever since he objected to taking a-$1,500 pay cut 'from the Lions this fall. i ·Detroit sent .'me to the New Layne,. but I think the cards were, already stacked jagalnst iny continuing in pro football," Mann stated. The lithe Negro claims that Yank Coach Eed Strader informed him upon his arrival that his trade to New York was strictly a deal cooked up by the-"brass," and. was a complete surprise to him. "In the face of my record last year, I figure .'the Yanks never gave me a chance 'to make, their ball club," he asserted. "I don't think they ever intended to. "I got In for two minutes against the Washington Redskins in ; an ex hibitlon game and scored New York's only touchdown on a 50- yard pass. The next day Strader told me he'd put me up for waivers." Mann, is more disillusioned than bitter over his failure to receive even the slightest offer from other league elubs after the · waiver period elapsed. Two Years With Lions 'Strader 'said I was .too light for pro ball, but I still weigh 170 and that was. enough, to make me a regular with the Lions for ; two years. It just doesn't add up," he said sorrowfully. - ' . . ' . Detroit Lions Coach Bo McMillin hailed Mann's..charges as "absolutely absurd." . ' . McMillin said,: "It isn't hard 'to see ,why Mann couldn't make the Yanks' team, with all the big, 200- pound ends-they've got I don't want to take anything away from Bob's pass catching, but because of his small size he -was totally ineffective as a blocker." In addition to. being out of football his work, Mann was salesman's · job fired with from 'the National Beer Co., headed by Edwin J. Anderson, president of the Lions. , : .
