(Author Unknown) The Chaplain's advice to my son Bill on Graduation day — "I am giving you the ball, son, and naming you the quarterback for your team in the game of life. I am your coach, so I'll give it to you straight. "There is only one schedule to play. It lasts all your life, but consists of only one game. It is long with no time but and no substitutions. You play the whole game — all your life. "You!ll have a .great backfield. You are calb'ng the signals, but the other three fellows Ui the backfield with you have great reputations. They are named Faith, Hope and Charity. "You'll work behind a truly powerful line. End to end, it consists of Honesty, Loyalty, Devotion to Duty, Self Respect, Sturdy Cleanliness and Good Behavior. "The Goal Posts are the Gates of Heaven. "God is the referee and sole official. He makes all the rules, and there is no appeal from them. "There are ten rules. You know them as the Ten Commandments and you play them strictly in accordance with your own religion. "There is also an important ground rule. It is, 'As Ye would that men should do to you, do Ye also to them likewise.' "Here is the ball. It is your immortal soul! Hold onto it. Now, son, get in there and let's see what you can do with it."

(AP) Cliff Wells, coach of the Wes team in this Saturday's East-Wes college All-Star basketball game knows how David felt when he went out to fight Goliath. Wells' team faces the task o stopping the likes of All-America! Art Heyman of Duke and Jerry Harkness of Chicago Loyola, plus such performers as Tom Thacker of Cincinnati, Rod Thorn of West Virginia, Nate Thurmond of Bowling Green and Jimmy Rayl of Indiana. "The only thing I can promise you is that I won't stall againsl this great team," Wells quipped, "but it sure beats me as to how we'll stop them." The West team will be headed by two fine performers from the Rocky Mountain are—Big Eighl scoring champion Ken Charlton of Colorado and Bill Green, the nation's third ranking individual scorer this past season from Colorado State. "I think the key to beating a team made up of Heyman, Thorn, Harkness, Thurmond and Thacker will be defense," said Wells, who just retired as head basketball coach at Tulane. The West probably will start Charlton, Green, Lyle Harger of Houston, Gary Hill of Oklahoma City University and either Willie Brown of Texas Western or Nolen Ellison of Kansas. The contest is sponsored by the National Association of Basketball Coaches, with proceeds going to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame at Springfield, Mass. 2 Drivers In INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Ed Kostenuk, Victoria, B.C., and Bob Mathauser, Gardena, Calif., were nominated today to drive cars in the 47th 500-mile auto race May 30.

The Australian lass was voted the award in the annual Associated Press poll. The large trophy, put up by jeorge Zaharias, husband of the ate, great all-round athlete Babe, was turned over to Capt. Mervin Stone of the Matson liner Monterey. Capt. Stone will present the trophy to Miss Fraser when the ship arrives in Sydney April 8. basketball; Harvey Drake, OHS golf; Dick Peters, Ottawa Uni versity football; Bill Frear, OU basketball, and Bill Boucek OU track. Among the diners were some parents of the athletes. Guist am Elder alternated athletes and fans at the tables. Ashford mixed some laughs with his philosophical pep talk for the young athletes entering the long important game of living. He said young people now have a wonderful opportunity for learning, with better teachers and better facilities. "The day of the big dumb foot ball player is gone," he said. It's more difficult to play, a boy has to think more now, than used to be the case, he added. Ashford said he hopes the young people will take advantage of every opportunity for learning. Athletes, he said, have a tremendous obligation to set a living example of what they're expected to be. "Lots of kids look up to you," he said. He said he sees no place for drinking and smoking and horsing around for boys who want to be athletes and coaches. Ashford urged the young men to take an active part in their churches. "We've been fortunate in athletics," he said. "We have more coaches, better equipment and the entertainment dollar has been kind to us." "I don't know how long it can last," he said. "We read of the fixes, the scandals. We need to do a better job of selling our program, need to b've the thing we stand for. "If training regulations are good during the season, they should be followed out of season," he said. Ashford told of a boy he had coached, a young man who had lost an eye and a hand in the war. He became, said Ashford, the first-string quarterback, the best passer and the best down- field blocker on his squad. "He did it with determination," said Ashford. "No classroom or lab could have given him what the gridiron gave him." There's no place in sports for alibis, said Ashford. On another thought, Ashford said use of profanity doesn't denote strength but a weakness in vocabulary. He told of a group of paratroopers who learned the source of their strength at jump time. They were praying and reading Bibles instead of "flexing their muscles" and using foul language, he said. "I never saw a successful businessman who wasn't a Christian, and I hope I never do," said Ashford. The speaker closed by reading "Rules of the Game" which appears under separate heading. Garnett Here Tomorrow Cyclone In Openin With the advent of a somewhat •fc'i warmer climate, Coach Oriis Cox's Ottawa High thinclads have joined the 50-mile hike group as they go through their paces in what seems like double the work- but necessary to belong to the club.

Emerson and Harold Wallace help Cox put the team in condition as the Reds set for their opener here Wednesday against Garnett.
