The shooting stars of the gridiron firma-' jT tnent. collected in the all-American galaxy, once more show a distinct tendency to follow a south and westward course.

SHAUCHNESSY, coach of the Loyola Wolves of ' New Orleans, has accepted the invitation to handle the All-Louisiana grid team that will meet an All-Texas eleven at the State Fair Grounds here December 22. The game is being sponsored by the Lowe-Met arlane post of the American Legion and part of the gate receipts will go to the Goodfellows' Christmas fund being collected by The Shreveport Times. Tanks, selecting eleven stars by this somewhat near-sighted method arm labelling them 1 he All-America ,. It waa a simple task, at least, com- pared wart the Job of surveying a iiauon nuea with such gridiron tsl eot as It Is today, but the swing of football's pendulum has brought well-earned recognition to players over a wider range of action than ever before. It has been conclusively proved that no one section any longer has a monopoly on star teams or star performers. Whatever shouting there inay hare been from the eastern hilltop, toward the close of November waa abruptly stilled after the event that transpired at the Yankee stadium under the direction of Oregon State and Stanford. Nowhere has the nationalizing process tn college football been so strikingly emphasized as In the sll-Amerloan consensus compiled by The Associated Pree in the four ears since the death of Walter Camp, father of the all-star idea. - This consensus of 1928 represents ie opinions of more than 250 e;:oe-rtenced observers, the compilation of country-wide opinion. It has been euthered first-hand by The Associated trese staff of sports experts, men who JvIX covfred" 1111 "e big game, in ctery section and been so situated as to best collect the verdicts of sporto tutors, coaches, scouts East and tar West High.

" Ciu-n ia The battle for places on this year s im-Araerlcan has been Just aa keen as yhe struggle for tea.n honors. 1'he task of aelectlon has been Just as difficult aa that of picking a championship team In a season that has Had Its full share of stunning reversals. Its rise and fall of team aa wc:i aa Individual fortunes. 6tar tacklea like Captain Spram of the Army and Capiain Hilibs of jSmthern California, great backs like Ai Marsters of Dartmouth, and Red-.man Hume of Southern Methodist r-ad the bad luck to suffer Injuries or mishaps that impaired their effectiveness and consequently lowered jiielr all-American rankings. Scored In Every tianie. Nowhere was the race any swifter than that for the backfleld positions. It Is noteworthy, therefore, that Earl arry (Dutch) Clark, ball-carryln;; .lOrror and halfback extraordinary of Colorado college, fits Into the back- f'.eld combination with Red Casle of the Army, chuck Can-oil of Washington and Ken Strong of New York university to give the Rocky Mountain Its first chance shot at all-American fame and glory. Clark, declared to be the greatest player the Rocky Mountain area has c- er produced. Rains the quarterback position only after sharp contest from a formidable group of rival candidates. Including Howard Harpeter. pride of the eastern general staff; Clyde Crabtree. versatile star of the Florida Alligators: Freddy Kovde of Minnesota, Howard Maple of OreRon Stat and Don Williams of Southern California. All possess unusual qualities, but none appears to combine all the essentials of football greatness so much a Clark. Clark, alternating thU year at quarterback and fullback, perhaps lacks the polished generalship and passing artistry of Harpsler but the "Flying Dutchman" Is considerably more useful at bucking line, skirting the ends or backing up a line. Unusually rugged, Clark tn two years of keen competition has not failed to score at least one touchdown In every game. His average gain thl year was slightly more than 10 yards for every time he handled the ball. y Charles ( Chuck) Carroll of Washington and Christian Keener (Red! Cagle of the Army come as close to being unanimous as any all-American this season. Both have performed with consistent brilliance, as brightly In defeat as In victory. Yet they are - widely different. Carroll Is more on Clark'e style, big and powerful, a stonewall on defense, kicker, passer and a shifty runner. Cagle can also kick but the Army captain-elect for 1929 is noted chiefly for his ehulve-liess in a broken field, an art nt .which he is proclaimed the greatest since Red Grange was running wild Cagle a speed and football Intuition are hU biggest assets.. "A South lias Many Star Backs. There are other great halfbacks .this year, few so thoroughly equipped aa Paul Bcull of Pennsylvania, an extraordinary dropklcker, and Warner MlaeU of Georgia Tech's triple threat. Scull la also a wonder on defense but neither he nor Mlzell possesses the running ability of Cagle or the fleiy aggressiveness of Carroll. The middle west, which produced -three of the four all-American backs two year ago. had Its share of stars but none quit up to the standard set by Grange, Friedman and Joest-tng In recent seasons. Glasgow of lows, Bennett of Indiana, Welch of Purdue, Lusby of Wisconsin, Eby of Ohio State, Cloan of Nebraska, Brazil and Connell of Detroit, Chevtgny and Klemleo of Notre Dame, ell were In the limelight but not sufficiently to erowd such auper-stars aa Cagle, Car-voll Mlzell and Scull. ' The South also waa rich In back-, field material, with Mlzell and Crab-tre perhaps the bet all-around per-f cmra . but not many steps ahend of Penke of Virigln'.a Poly, Banker of Tulane, Burky Moore of Loyola, Armlstead cf Vanrlerbllt, McEver of Tennessee and Thomason of Georgia Tech. Although he played at halfback on New York University's team, Kenneth (Mike) Strong is of the bulk, po'er and all-around ability Ideally suited to fill the fullb ck position allotted him. The country's leading touchdown maker docs everything and does It with convllnclng skill. He waa no more slaslilngly eflcctive in his big day against Carnegie than was Captain Elff Hoffman of Stanford against the Army but over t!ie season's stretch Strong was as coiitilet-ently good as any player In the country. Howell of Nebraska, McLain of Iowa, Nasrur&kl of Minnesota and Miles of Princeton had their bis; daya while Snyder. Maryland ace. h.id several as he numbered Yale among his victims.

Brown of Missouri, Messlner of West Point and Donchees of Pittsburgh were In thJ front rank all year.

Oi-poutid bul The Homer squad will meet the winner of the southern division at Alexandria next Saturdey to decide the winner of the sta e championship. This marks the tirst time : inoe tlie history of the Homer high school that It has rated such a high standing among the high school football teams of te stare, and It will tske a strong eleven to keep them ,rom carrying home the state title Satur day. First Quarter Jim Hodglr.s on the tos and kicked off to Homer Kendrlck returned klckoff 12 yards On the third play, after they had gained seven yards, Cameron fumbied and Joe Almokary covered the ball on Homer's 45-yard line. The Jackets heaved a pass to Almokary that was Intercepted by H. Cameron, who ran 20 yards to the Jackets' 48-yard line Shreveport received a five-yard penalty and Hendricks went 10 vaids over right end for first down. Two plays over tackle gave the Homer squad another first down. Smith 'u-tercepted a pass on his 20-yard line The Jacket lost the ball to Homer or. downs The vlslilng eleven gained the ball on their 43-yard line ayd started a char;?e down the field that scored them three first downs and a touchdown. The Jackets received the kick-off end Hodgins counted from his 20-yard line 50 yards to Homer's 30-yard line. Homer w.ts RASPBERRIES AND CREAM (Continued from precedinj psje.) take part in the grid game here was not expected to be made public fur siine time The local officials first wanted to hear from Cale on the subject and if things were favorable to spring it on the public as a surprise. The movement to have the sensational son of Louisiana don the moleskins here was too good news to keep and it circulated fast It broke out like an explosion. Cagle has been flooded with messages to come to Shreveport. He is expected to visit his family at Merryville, La., during the Christmas holidays, and may arrange to perform here. The Legion, however, is careful in saying they have nothing definite on Cagle. I t's only their desire to have him here. Already quite a few acceptances to invitations to play here have been received from the grid athletes of . Louisiana and Texas. Many of the lads have been craving for just such a chance to get back into harness. wark In Georgia Tech's great line Pommercnlng played throughout the entire season without once yielding to a substitute, an "Iron man" stunt that In Itself gives him unique honor. In Michigan's march to the touchdown that meant a final victory over Iowa, eight of the nine plays netting around 60 yards were driven through Pommerenlng's position. It took men great work ss that to keep off the first team tackles like Mike Getto. one of the outstanding players In Pittsburgh's mighty forward wall, and Gordy Brown, raner star of the University of Te.as eleven. Butch Nowark, Illinois captain, Al I.assman of N. Y. U.. Mel Dresjel of Washington State, Wakeman of Cornell, Mooney of Georgetown and Bancroft of California were other fine tackles. Injuries handicapped two of the best, Sprague of the Army and Hibb of Southern California, while Raskowskl of Ohio State failed to reach his 197 form. Sprague wm a two-time all-American, the only sur- vlver from last year's team, but failed to repeat. Tost, Stanford Tackle. Much as did Pommerenlng of Michigan. Captain Burke of the Navy successfully led his team out of early season disaster and displayed the prowess that gained him a post as nil-American guard. The Midshipman's running mate Is Kcrahlm. otherwise known as "Dynamite" Poet of Stan- fords powerful line. There Is little tr choohe between Post and his teammates Robetkey or Drlscoll, to Jud;e from what they did to the Army pc the Yankee stadium, but Post Is tho unanimous choice of Pacific Coast critics who have seen him perform brilliantly all season. Post and Burke are both ran?;y and powerful while the former can carry the ball If necessary on one of Pop Warner's trick plajs. Not far behind them In all-around ability are Gibson of Minnesota, McMullen aril his Nebraska running mate. Holm Dumont of Colgate,, Choo Sander, full-blooded Indian of Southern Methodist. Orennon of George Tech and Dlmollo of Pittsburgh, Charlea (Chuck) Howe Is Princeton's second all-Amerlcan center in four years. The aggressive Tiger leader outplayed every rival he met and they included the giant Barratt of Ohio Slate as well as the rangy Kneen of Cornell and two or three Yale opponents. Howe fighting spirit gives him an edge, even If slight, over such capable passers and towers of strength as Captain Peter Fund of Georgia Tech.

Printed matter emanating from New York links the name of the Yankees with the San Antonio club nf the Texas league. There mibt he more than just a hit of idle gossip back of that The Hears would probably welcome a buyer. They were quite a financial loser last summer. I,atc in the season Marry Abies stepped out as president of the club and the question is who will fill Abies' shoes for the Hears. If the Yanks are guinjj to farming. San Antonio miijlit prove a fertile field. Just what effect a chain-store club at San Antonio would have on the Texas league ts problems! kal. Houston gave the loop a touch of syndicate baseball last scaon. Some folks say it was a good tonic, others just the reverse. Houston, however, let it be known that seven other clubs will have to give their patrons good ball if tlicy are go'tiitf to have any show in winning the pennant. After all. that is what the pay-as-you-enttr customers care for. With the Yanks in control at San Antonio there inifiht he a lively fight for pennnnt laurels between the Htars and the Huffs. The Yanks, it they go in for chain-store teams, will do it on a big scale. Jersey City is said lo be one of the spots they seek Syracuse, of the New York-Pennsylvania leasuc, ami Chainbcrsburg. of the Clue Ridge leacne also arc mentioned. Nashville, of the Southern association, is another possibility The plan is to have clubs from Class H ri'ht on through up to the majors. This spring the Yanks will do a little touring of Texas. Their visit to the southwest may mean a little bit more than the rdaying of exhibition games. WLANE COACH WILL HAVE ABUNDANCE OF VETERANS FOR 1929 GRIDIRON SQUAD- By ItltlW lil l l,.

RUSS COHEN'S GRIDIRON WARRIORS FAIL TO SCORE; FUMBLE STOPPED TIGERS By KENNETH A. MILLER (Associated Press Spoils Writer.) BIRMINGHAM. Al.A., Dec. 8 W) -Alabama's massive Crttu.. i T ide was forced to release its full fury in the season's football finale here this afternoon to throttle Louisiana State's I'mple and Gold Tiger, 1J to 0 Twelve thousand shivering fans saw the atame. Mugging to straight, hard running loolhall for three periods the Tide eked over a touchdown early in the first half, tlvn unfolded its midget spinning marvel, John Randolph Campbell, late in the final period to score the final touchdown. Louisiana threw a scare into tne - Crimson In the fir.it period when Brown skirted his left end for 35 yards Captain Earl Smith of Alabama dragging him down on the Tide's H7 yard line. Brown was Injured and forced to leave the game and wl'.n him seemed to go the Tiger s offensive for the remainder of the period Louisiana punted and on a reverse Tony Holm ripped otf 30 yards to place the ball on State's 30 yard line Campbell knlled through, center for 15 yards and five yard penalty and two short plunges by Hicks and Campbell sent the latter across for Alabama's first counter. Hicks fumbled in the attempt for the extra point. Louisiana sprung a tricky offensive for the nsxt two periods with two Weaver Dig bre:.ks blighting her two best snoring chancos. Alabama weathered the storm and with the advent of the lliihl period turned the yardage taak over to the rtumpy Curuubcll. Willi the ball on Alabama's 45 yard line Campbell started faking reverse plays, picking up hla puzzling spin behind the veterans Hagler and Pearce. His first whirl at the line netted 12 yards, the second 15. and live more coupled with 10 Hlclu picked up on a reverse placed the bull on the Tigers six yard line. Louisiana stiffened with Captain Tlnsioy playing a great defensive game Alabama sent three thruats Into the line before Campbell could make first down on the one yard line from where Holm crashed over on a double reverse. Bktdmore found the post for the fttra point from placement.
