TII-I.Y • United Press Sports H'atw BIRMINGHAM, Ala,, March 27. UP)—A preview of one of l^ lc University of Alabama's greatest— f not the greatest--all-time loot- all teams is In store for grid mis Saturday when Uie mighty 3rimson Tide plays an intra-sQim'l ;ame here for a former team meni- ler who will never see them in tic- ion. 'The benefit will be played for "ormcr Capt. Charles A. (Charley) Hoswell, who plaj'Bd his last game or Alabama against Vanuerbilt an Nov. 30, 1939 — exactly five years to Ihe day before an exploding Gernau shell blinded hiin fou- life. Conch Frank Thomas promised no "punch-initling" in Saturday's Spring training climax, when UIL ICiims will be captained by Alabama's two All-Americans, Halfback Harry Gllmer and Centei Vaughn Maneha. "We'r e going to make every effort to keep teams as evenly matched as possible on the field at the same time," Thomas said. "The fans don't have t/o worry about seeing .some real football." Gilmer's "white" team and Maneha's "Red" squad each was assigned ,12 of the 26 letternien returning to spring practice from the hurling to Ted Cook, six-foot-two- nch end who just returned to the ride nftci 1 three years of service oolball.

I Battle Royals 1 From tlie time Chief Godwin called his candidates together for the initial workout until yesterday's bruising but excellent scrimmage, it has been n battle royal, mad scramble to clinch those 'starting berths. Big Bill, himself a former tribesman who went on to star at the University of Georgia and played in the famed Rose and Orange Bowls, and served as player-coach at the Amphibious Naval Base. Fort Pierce. Fla.. made it plain from the outset that the jobs were wide open to be awarded on . merit, alone. Each lias been trying to outdo the other, which has added much lo the prevailing camp spirit." There is another reason why the fans can look for a bitter, hard; fought struggle when Ihe two teams lock horns. The Maroons have a special incentive. They will be out tti atone for the shellacking which the Whites.dished out Saturday, in an liour-and-a-half scrimmage.

Seeks Perfection Operating tlie T formation for Ihe first time, the Chicks have come around to form slowly. Coach Godwin has sought perfection and has been insistent that the plays- be run properly. HE has been critical of his backs ami ends in the execution of the plays, being content only with the best. A large portion of : tl\e daily drills have been devoted fo the timing of (lie plays under Bill's critical eye- Simultaneously, Line Coach Bynum. a product of John Tucker at Arkansas Tech, ami all-Southwest Conference tackl e at the University of Arkansas in 1940, has been giving the linesmen full benefit of his years of experience. Des- .pite the fact that most of the candidates are Inexperienced,- they have shown considerable improvement and should improve more before the curtain falls.

Ky., Mar. 28. <UP> —Man O> War, who is almost us much of an institution in the hard boot .country as the .Kentucky Derby, will have a 29-carrot birthday party tomorrow. The big red turf warrior who Kcjituckians Jnsdst is the greatest race-hois; that ever lived, will lake it easy as usual and there won't be much "to distinguish the day from any oilier except thai a few more visitors are expected to make the fe'ek to Faraway Farms, For many it is almost a pilgrimage, because in the thoroughbred industry which means so much t( Kentucky, Man O' War is a symho Of perfection. I They overlook the fact thaJ,J'Bii r Red "••-never won 'the Kenluck: Derby! That is attributed ton ui .oversight of his owner. Sam Rid- to en- i ir.H'T terin ° him fov the Blue Rlbl>on Classic of the Blue Grass Country. I No true Kentiickian ever will | believe that the .wide-striding horse couldn't have won the derby, however. Tliey point to his fabulous record, 20 victories in 21 races and the fact that as a three-year-old, he never met defeat. Foaled on March 29. 1917, Riddle got one of the greatest racing bargains of all time when he bought the horse as a yearling for 45.000 from August Belmont. Later. Riddle twice turned down $1,000,000 offers for the horse. Although Man O' War was only a wobbly colt when Riddle first saw him, his trainer, Luis Feustal. seized hj.ui up as a potentially great horse and urged Riddle to buy him. It was a never regretted decision. Although he raced at a time when purses were far below pre- ent levels, he won approximately ^50.000 More being retired to tudy as a four-year-old. Since hat time he has sired horses whose otal winnings exceed S2.500.000. Riddle h>i no idea how many lorscs Man O' War has sired but ip to 1838, four years before he ras retired from stud he had been he father of 236 horses, 176 of :hem becoming winning campaigners.
