By PniL NEWSOM (United Prut Leaitd Wire) Sept 1.—The Detroit ^ Lions, professional champions of tho world, and the 1936 college all-stars open the football season in Soldiers Field tonight. At least 80,000 will pour Into tho huge lake (rent amphitheater for tho third annual floodlighted spectacle In this unique college-proles- slonal series. The heavier, faster, smoother Lions were 2-to-l favorites to defend tho prestige of professionalism. Thero wua little wagering despite the fact the Chicago Bears were held to -a scoreless tie In 1934 and barely won In a driving rainstorm lost year, 5 to 0. The outcome of the game means less to tho crowd, however, than the presentation of an unlimited supply of famous football characters—Jay Herwanger. Sheldon Belse, Keith Topping. Pick Smith. Dutch Clark, Rrnlo Caddell, Ox Emerson and do*- ens more. Th call-star squad chosen by readers of 182 newspapers In 40 states was regarded superior to tho previous colleglato groups due partly to the Increased scope of tho poll. Most credit, however, went to Coaches Bernlo Blerman of Minnesota, Do McMlllln of Indiana, Elmer Layden of Notre Dame and Lynn Waldorf of Northwestern, who drove the collegians to their peak in 18 days. In Earl (Dutch) Clark the Lions undoubtedly have tho greatest back- fleld star In tonight's cast. The all- stars hope to offset this advantage with a unified machine In which Captain Hlloy Smith of Alabama willy direct plays from quarterback. Jay Herwangc-r of Chicago and Bill Shakespearo of Notro Damo will work nt thn halves, and Sheldon llolso of Minnesota at fullback. Line Holds Key Tho backflelda will b« about equal and lino play should hold the key to victory. Defensively the collegians may bo superior at the, ends, which will bo manned by Keith Topping of Stanford and Wayne, Miller of Notro Dame. Dlek Smith, Minnesota, and Truman Spain, .Southern Methodist, aro two All-American Uickles towering as bulwarks of thn nil-star lino. Smith, who pi-Tyed against several touring profeslojial teams after hlu collegiate career ended laat fall, knows what to expect. Vern Oech, Minnesota, and Paul Tangora, Northwestern, will be at the guards and Oomer Jones, Ohio State's pudgy captain, will start at center. Kicking Important Slnco tho goal posts will bo planted on tho goal line—the one concession demanded by tho professionals—added emphasis was placed on the kicking. Marty Peters of Notro Daino and Babe Lo Vbtr of Minnesota nit; accurate place kickers. Tho Lions will rely on Clark, a drop-kicker, and tho veteran Qlen 1'resnell, placement star.
