Those, without living fathers will select a fan to represent his. Each father will be assigned a number which corresponds to those on his son'.s jersey'. They will walk with their .sons from the dressing room to the playing field just before the opening kickoff, and will take their places on a bench beside that used by the players. The numbers, phmed to the papas' backs, will be visible to the .stadium •fans. The big chief said the idea was used in a college game recently and went over big with the fans, to say the least of the fathers and players. Some sort of celebration may be planned lor father and son after the game, Coach Dildy Intimated. Chicks Take It Easy The Chicks look it comparatively _ easy yesterday, though quiie a bit of work was accomplished in u ne wed vigor, hope for. which the mentors Sport Parade By KENBY HcUCHOBK OKLAHOMA CITY, Nov. 19 This isu long, long way from Hanover, New Hampshire, but even out here folks are beginning to wonder what Dartmouth plans in honor of the cameraman whose pictures gave the big green football team a belated, but nonetheless tremendous, 3 to 0 victory over supposedly invincible Cornell last Saturday. It has been suggested that Dartmouth athletic: officials retire the Jersey number "of the cameraman whose shots revealed that Cornell had five downs in scoring its touch- novel manner. Afier the usual calls- down, but as Grunge's 77 was put thenics. they worked approximately away in a case.and just as Tommy 20 minutes going down under punts Harmon's 98 will be placed, in moth- which was featured by long distance balls, lace and old lavender by Michigan at the end of this sea- booting by Captain Norman (Monk) Mosiey and May field «Sonny) Lloyd. The two star backs were consistently getting off long, high spirals that- traveled 50 yards anil better from scrimmage. Instead of the usual Monday scrimmage Mosiey and Lloyd chose sides and engaged in a spirited touch football game which lasted more than 30 minutes. The kids got a big kick out of the novelty which served to break the routine monotony. _They wound up the lively session "with work on the charging board •and dummy. Ross Bruises Knee Only one serious injury was reported from the .Russellville". game last week. LeRoy Ross, fleet right end,, bruised a knee when thrown hard on the frozen gridiron and watched the drill from the sidelines in his civics. The week before .he suffered a slight wrench to his other "knee. There is a possibility/ that he will not be used this week, •though the trainer said the. knee had responded to treatments, and ne will be able. '•••'; VBruising Bo" Coppedge's -left arm which was wrenched in workout early- last week is still a ."little sore" but should be all right for the Panther invasion, barring further accident, of course. Several other Chicks are nursing bruises and burns from railing on the hard ground but all are minor and shouldn't handicap them 'to any noticeable degree. Lloyd t Improving: Lloyd reported that his foot, which was twisted more than three weeks ago, felt better than at !any time since it was twisted and "believed he would be in top shape with Forrest City next Wednesday night. .While Benton.does not rate as a serious threat, having lost seven of their nine games, the Chicles likely - will undergo a long scrimmage this afternoon. The coaches hope for a comparatively easy game in order to have-the entire squad in perfect shape for the Forrest City game. But they do not want to tako chances on a possible slip up from the Panthers. ' The team spirit appears to be of the highest order. There is pep galore, pep that bespeaks grim determination. They have worked hard all season and now with the goal,, the conference championship, in ; sight they are more resolved than ever to come through. son. This would be entirely fitting-if only cameramen wore jerseys and numbers. But as they don't. I would like to suggest to Coach,Red Blailc' and Athletic Director Jim Lynch tiisii they retire the complete outfit the cameraman was wearing last Saturday. Put his topcoat in one case, his pants, vest and coat in another, his shirt, tie and collar in another, and his studs, shoes, socks, and derby m\ another. After this was done, they could buy the cameraman a new outfit and formally announce that no cameraman wearing an outfit similar to the one ictirecl woul'd be allowed in the Coaches DHdy, MUchol, Best and i bTSe To The more you think of' what an upset Dartmouth's victory was, and of what an important part the pictures played in bringing about a reversal of the first verdicj, the more you fed >.• that Dartmouth should award the cameraman a block D. Not a plain block: D, either, but a special - one with tassels, epaulettes, palms, and maybe a fringe of tatting. ' ' .- -i-I can't" help biit speculate as to the: changes; in football this incident of last 'Saturday 'is likclr to bring about. In the first place, football teams may be expected to start scouting for promising young photographers as well as for tackle, guard and fullback material. Offers of tuition, board and a soft job will be made to high school boys who show .extraordinary talent in the dark room or have n way with lenses., or a natural, easy motion with a tripod. Triple threat photographers \vhp can focus, develop, print and project will be at a premium, and the time may come when Margaret Bourke White, Steichen, Bachrach. Hurrell and Pine Mc- Donnld given places on ,the coaching staff to instruct the candid camera halfbacks. If photography .does . take its place in football, there wilfbe one distressing angle. Double features, already the bane of many a moviegoer's life, will become triple features. Along with "Purple Passion," and "Souls Adrift/' there will be shown a football game, at which the actual and official score will be announced. All bets on games be made "payable in the lobby after the last reel is shown and it has been proved who really won. The cameras are going "to make it very tough on the football of flcials. If, they pul! boners, they'll be right there on the reel because; ; unlike Hollywood stars, they won't John Ed James are doing everything possible to make the daily' practices' anything but drudgery to prevent stateness. They realize the players have undergone one of, if not the most strenuous schedules ever undertaken by a high school team in recent years." The burden has been earned by a comparative lew and the strain has taken its toll in physical energy. Bin they have shown definite - signs of re- Hand me my Bro'wnie No. 2 boy.

' Tennessee beat the Wildcats by Ihree touchdowns in 1939 because Kentucky lacked the running game to supplement Allen's passes and a j defense to stop Johnny Butler, | ti\.r/.z Warren and others. The records say the. boys from the blue yrass can do no better this year, but the upsets around the South-' eastern Conference so far prove the "dope" a bum forecaster.

If Tennessee wins Saturday^''; CORNELL LIKED TO PLOT Effort Made To Re-Play Game After Cornell Acknowledged Defeat NEW YORK, Nov. 19 (UP)—Possibility that Cornell and Dartmouth might re-play their much- discussed '-fifth-down" football game at New York after the season ends, today took some of the sting out of Cornell's first defeat in 18 games which followed reversal of last Saturday's 7-3 Cornell triumph. Richard McCann, secretary of the National Sports Council Committee for • celebration of the president's birthday has wired the invitation to Cornell's director of athletics, James Lynah. and William H. McCarter, Dartmouth's athletic director. The game would be played for the benefit of the infantile paralysis- fund. Cornell tumbled from football's perfect record class yesterday by voluntarily accepting a 3-0 defeat by Dartmouth after admission of an officiating error by Referee Red Priesell that had given the big Red a victory at Hanover, N. H. •; Priesell erred on the final play of the game when he allowed Cornell a fifth down and Cornell completed a pass in the end zone just as - the final gun sounded for an apparent 7-3 win. However. Priesell, in a report to Asa Bushnell, executive director of the Eastern Intercollegiate Football Association, said: "Numerous charts kept- by "the press and. motion pictures taken by both colleges, has convinced me beyond a shadow of doubt that I ^ TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1 9, 194< was In error 'hi allowing 'Corn possession or'the ball for the pi] on which they scored.
