BLUE AND ME FOOTBALLERS PREPARE FOR OPENING GAME By MARVIN With the city's 1944 football season Just around the corner, the Blue-and White squads from Bakersfield High School have been put through some rigorous scrimmaging In order to prepare them for next week's tilt, in which the two teams will open the grid play against each other. The Blue team under the capable coaching hands of Dwight Griffith, J. B. (Cap) Haralson and George .Williamson have installed the famous T-formation, which should click like clockwork with last year's stars Mike Combos and Jim Beck in the bnekfleld. On the Blue line are two other all-stars returning from last season, Allen Lewis is at the left end spot and Don Beavers at center. Changing from one color to another we find the White team coached by Jack Frost, Ray Scott and Ernest Dalbom. The White squad has suffered quite a few losses this week. Bob Blalock, the fullback sensation, was declared ineligible FERGUSON which moved Larry Vincient into the first string bucking back position. Joe Cavillo suffered a collarbone injury, which prevented him from showing up for practice last night. Doug Torres moved into the running guard spot to take over while Ca villo is on the sick list. The Whites are going to use the man in motion formation which proved itself very effective for the championship Bruins of last year's intra-mural league. Changes in positions are being made every night, but if the boys whQ hold first string positions can stay there, this is how the starting lineup will look on Friday, September 29.

Hi T Start New Club Year Fifteen returning members of the East Bakersfield High School Hi "Y" Sports Club elected officers for the year at a meeting held at the school this week, it was announced today by James Tinkle, adviser of the group. Officers will be Jack Mefford, president; Arlie Coombs, vice-president; Don \Vigginton, secretary: Sinnett Barefoot, treasurer; and George Palmer, council member. Club membership is still open to boys who "wish to maintain high standards of Christian living throughout the school and community," Mr. Tinkle said. Club members strive to help others unselfishly and to live the "Golden Rule." Mr. Tinkle said that in past years it has not been possible for the club to serve all applicants, but this year a new club will be formed under the leadership of Neil Lohman, mathematics instructor at the school.

Slinging Sammy May Bel-A Soon WASHINGTON, Sept. 21. (#>—The 'Washington Post said today that Sammy Baugh must quit the Washington Redskins and return to his Texas ranch by October 1 or be classified 1-A by selective service. Baugh must choose between continuing in professional football or returning to his occupation as a rancher, the. Post said it was told by C. R. Simmons, chairman of the Nolan county (Texas) draft board No. 1. "As a randier, Baugh has been holding a 2-C classification." said Simmons, "and he applied in July for permission to play three charity games in pro football. AVilh the approval of the state board, we granted Baugh that permission and notified him that he must be back on his ranch by October 1 or lie would be put .n 1-A. Pro football is not an essential occupation." The Washington team, scheduled to play six games after November J. is built around the quarterbacking and pass-throwing of Baugh, former star at Texas Christian University.

McShain, the gentleman who never seems to live up to his title, started out on the mean side, by winding the microphone cord around Trout's throat, then hitting him on the top of the bean with the speaker. Trout was just a little surprised at Metiliain's tactics and didn't quite get on to them until the second fall, which can ed Trout to losu- the first one in ll'riiO. when the gentleman applied a quick body press. Understanding that McShain wanted to play a little rough. Trout came back fast at the bell and both the tans and McShain wondered where the sea-going wrestler had his vitamin 14 hidden. Trout gave McShain a little of his own medicine by catching him in a sling shot off the ropes, then he sei/.ed him with a body press. The last fall was also taken by Trout when he broke a series of -McShain's body presses and applied another one of his own to take the round in 6:'2\i. The semi-windnp bout featured Abe Colcman. the fan's favorite, against Alex Kasaboski. This thrill- packed two-out-of-three-fall bout was won by Abe Coleman, Kasaboskl quite play fair and early in the first round lie lost the respect, of the crowd when he tried out his hair- pulling and Closed hand punch on Coleman, Kasaboski's stylo of wrestling didn't go very far with Coleman and with his fans urging him on he chased liis opponent around the ring with only revenue in his eyes. The only intentions of the referee and Kasaboski from this point on was to stay out ot: the way of Coleman on the rampage. Coleman must have been too anxious to repay his debt, for Kasaboski caught Coleman off guard and took the first fall with a series of flying mares in 10::!3. Coleman, not to be outdone by Kasoboski, came back in no time at all and collected victories by taking the next two falls with reverse arm stretches. The first in 6:15 and the last fall in 3:14. Dandy Davis, a newcomer from back cast, took the special event without too much trouble from his opponent, Kenny Ackles. Davis stole the round in 18 minutes with a back- breaker. The fans liked to watch Davis in action, but didn't approve of his methods because they cheered teh losing Ackles until the next bout got under way. Rough and rugged Mike Nazarian lost the perliminary match to Lee Grable in lti:45 because of undue roughness. Nazarian threw Grable into the aisle, then climbed over the ropes after him, slugging him several unfair blows.
