(Sandy) Santorcl ol the Paragould Bulldogs is wailing • little these days and Is hoping that his boy« will "make a rcspcclarjle •bowing" againsi the Blytheville Chicks next. Friday nlgiu. "I only hop* I can give you a good ball game," Sanlord wailed Ihis nioriiinK in announcing Ills probable starling lineup lor the Cluck tussle. "My boys are looking pretty rough and 1 know RusMll iCoacii Russell Mosley) has got il again this year. But we'll be In there scrapping." Bui just what the Bulldog chief* — had to wall about wasn't learned, unless it was that he had one player listed as a probable starter that is not » letterman. The other 10 starling posiiions will be filled by reluming monogram winners. His team, however, will be considerably lighter than the 1918 Bulldogs and will lack reserve power, according to the information passed on by Sanford. His squad ol 34 ranges in weight from 212-pound tackle to a 106-pound center and his starting lineup begin at a 135- pound halfback and goes all the Farmer Jones, Welch Defeat Canny, Sirois way up to a 196-pound tackle, according to the, weights K*u-d, Line to Average 170 J'miiids — The Biiilrioiis 1 line will average 170 pounds per man and the backs will welsh In at about 155. But ., !,the weights .seem well distributed t and on a T formation ball club, "• Vhat means a lot '." The only spot in the line that •:•• will not be filled by a letteiman '•"•It right Rllard where Elvis Stasis. *''~« first year man, has been filling -.Win. Stapgs is a 138-uonnrier and ••'•'has never played football before. '' Sanford said. 1';.' At the two terminal posts three - last year letter winners are fighting : "it out for the starling berth. Jimmy '' bale Hamilton, a 150-poimder that saw considerable action last year and another 1948 leUcrman Tony Hale McDonald at 172, are involved in x scrap for the left end posl- • tion and Jimmy Bomar. a 160- rxnmder has almost cinched the right end berth. Well-Supplied With Tarklers The tackle spots appear to be Coach Stanford's .strongest points in the forward wall. A couple of '• sizeable reserves are back at these .posts in the form of Richard Holland, a 196-pounder on the left .side and John Hess, a ns-povmder on the right. The left sentinel post will be •filled by Ray Gene McAllister, llsl- •d «t 160. »nd at center will be . Connie eagle, another 160-pound letter winner. Vic Brashears, the 160-pound Farmer Jones, the wmtling Ozark hillbilly, made his wrestling return to Blytheville in a big way last night. He teamed with Jack Welch to take a decision over Bill Canny and Walter Sirois in Hie main event of the American Legion's bouts at Memorial Auditorium. Jones, who clad himself only hi a pair of abbreviated blue Jeans in strictly turiil .style, proved lo the crowd of some 2.500 fans thai pack- en the aditoriuin to see him perform thai he was everything advance notices said lie was. The lie-whiskered grnpplcr from Ml. Ida, Ark., operated in hLs o\ui crude style -with the greatest of ease and appeared at no time hard j pressed, Jones used his bare feet a elhal weapon, kicking from almost any angle and his nullity to hold off opponents his feet made things appear nil the easier for him. Jones and Welch took the decision Ijy winning the last two falls after dropping the first. Canny and Sirois worked fust to take tile first round in 27 minutes with Sirois defeating Welch in 20 minutes with body slams and a pin and Canny won over Jones in the .same way in seven minutes. But tru-ir victory march was short lived. Jones opened up '.vith rapkl kicking attack in the second round and he and Welch took the rovuut in only 10 minutes. Welch eliminated Canny first with flying tackles and a body pin and Jones kangaroo-kicked Sirois Into submission in only three minutes. In the 'third 'fall. Welch got things going by taking Sirois in six mln- Campbell Wears Special Brace And Joins Porkers at Practice Sports Roundup By the AssMlalert Press + It may be determined this week how much football Leon (Mus- les) Campbell, the hernia-troubled star, will play with the trkftnsas Razwlwcks during the 949 season.

As the Yanks and Cards move into the final three weeks of the season with the opening today of NEW HAVEN, Conn.. Sept. 13. (ff» -Dr. Mai Stevens, one-time Yai« and New York University football coach, spent his first day off In a couple o! months casting a critical eye over the Yale squad yesterday. To >e truthful about it, there was plenty to criticise as the Elis went through a long scrimmage preliminary to Herman Hickman's annual barbecue . . . Capt. Lcvi Jackson, Bob Spears and a 155-pounder named Harlan "Hoss" Davis did some good running but the big guys who were supposed to clear the way for them just didn't . . . "I'm llot so sure about the "I" formation," commented Dr. Stevens, who U more concerned about his polio patients In Jersey City than about football these days "It wastes j^ many men—at least one and us!P ally two on each play . . . U w' n> a lot of games now because everybody is using it. but the best system still is to have better players the last inlersecUonal series, the relief aces figure to tell the story. New York, out front by three full sanies after Sunday's double u f in while Boston was dropping t w «. used Page In five of its 11 September games. Three times he helped Tommy Byrne out of trouble. He saved Allie Reynolds and Fred Sanford once each. Manager Casey Stengel may have to call on Smoky Joe today. After Eddie Lopat pitches the opener aeaiiisl the St. Louis Browns, Casey lias selected Rookie Wallv Hood to pitch the second game. Hood, a recent Kansas City grad, will be get- tine his first major league starting test. Vn the National the .slugging of Stan Musial and Enos Slaughter and the efficient relief work of Wllks (11-3) have Riven the Cards a I 1 '., game edge over the Dodgers. Wilks 'ins been bumped in his last feu r outings but the St. Louis staff required his strong right arm in four of its last nine games. The Cards, like all 16 major league teams had an open dale yesterday, but they're looking ahead to the Die-three same series at .Snortsman Park with second-place BrnoMvn Sent. 21-22. Those games, probably will decide the pennant rare. Ton'trht's series opener with the New York Giants is trie first ol 12 sfraichl home dates for the Red Birds. After that they finish up with five at Chicago And Pittsburgh. than the other fellow—and more of them. . . . I'd still like io see what would happen if a colle-e coach would copy the pros and (. .1 his players to throw a pass or three out of four plays." Bob Bool* Bull Glegengack. Vale's track coach, is shuddering over the possible fate of eleven track men on Hie football snuad. lint Hickman merely retorts, "They're football players we loaned him for track." Basketball Tutor Howard Hob- sol) still gets a chuckle over attending a summer clinic .with Kentucky's Adolph Rupp . - . Adolph called on an outstanding schoolboy prospect to demonstrate various shots as he explained them. . . The kid went without a miss right up to a mid-court overhead shot which Rupp described as virtually impossible. . . . When the boy sank that one, the Kentucky Baron called time out and went Into a huddle in which he presumably told about the beauties of Ihe blue grass country, then continued the clinic . . . Tip from this territory, where the kid couldn't Quite satisfy the commit- ee on admissions, is to keep your ye on Jim Carins, a freshman Stanford. Story is that he'll ma! he fans forget Glenn Davis.
