Main BlyrhevilU More AIC Teams To Begin Play Store Pfayi Tech, Southern State Meets Ouachita Saturday The Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference's young football season settles down to a family aflalr this weekend as more league foes start the battle for the 1951 championship. Conference members kicked open the season a couple of weeks ago but with the exception of two games, intersectional rivalry has been the keynote so far. At least two schools have posted impressive victories over conference foes to make them early hopefuls for the AIC title. Southern state leads the chase with a 41 to 0 victory over Ouachita Saturday night. The Muleriders, touted asn favorite, used just about every piny in the book to score against Ouachita. The Muleriders take on once- defeated Little Rock Junior College in Little Rock next Saturday. The Bears of Arkansas State Teachers College upset early season hopes of Little Rock when they eked out a last minute. 24-19 victory. The JC Trojans had their way until 3 fumble was recovered by the Bears and turned into a winning touchdown. Teachers, hoping for their second conference victory, move to Arkadelphia Saturday to meet Ouachita's Tigers. Arkansas state, which suffered a 32 to 0 touching by Mississippi state Saturday, will have a hand in AIC competition next weekend although State is not eligible for the championship. Arkansas A. & M.

FAYETTEVIIUJS, Ark., Sept, 24. (AP)-Off to a Jin, start th* Arkansas Razorbackj obviously can look forward to a more successful football season this year than last. How much more successful, Coach Otis Douglas Isn't sure. The Porkers, using reserves freely, romped Saturday to a ,42-7 lid- lifting victory over Oklahoma A. & M.—the team that beat them, 12-7 In the 1950 opener. In retrospect, Douglas commented today: "Generally, we were pretty well pleaded, but we're still making a lot of mistakes—certainly not as many as we made last year but still too many we can't afford to make in a tough ball game: The sophomore mentor, who watched his Inauguration of pro- style football at Arkansas last year produced-only two wins in ten tries, was referring mainly to holding, offside and illegal motion penalties which cost the Razorbacks 135 yards, two touchdowns which were called back and an excellent chance for another score. Douglas said much of the work this week, in preparation for next Saturday's game here with Arizona State of Tempe. would be devoted to reducing penalties. Attention also will be devoted to Improving the play of reserves. Forty-two Porkers saw action at Stillwater last Saturday and, while Douglas was happy with the work nf the starters on both offense and defense, he felt the reserves showed definite need of strengthening. "Of course we got some easy touch- downs. But it was encouraging that we scored the first time we got the ball In a drive in which no mistakes were made. We moved right on down. I thought Jim Rlnehart at quarterback called a good game and passed well (completing seven of 10); Lamar McHan did a fine job at both quarter and fullb'ack <h« ran 81 yards for one tally) and punted well, and I was happy that we didn't fumble a time from scrimmage. "Also, we were pretty well satisfied with the general condition of the team. No one was hurt In the game." Another factor Douglas might have mentioned was the balance of scoring punch. The Razorbacks' six touchdowns were scored by six different boys—Rinehart. McHan. Bill Jurney, Pat Summeratl, Buddy Button and Jerry Bogard. Summerall kicked a 25-yard field goal and George Thomason booted three extra points. host to Henderson next weekend.
