Ark.. Dec. 1— I/O—It seemed more likely today that John Barnhill would 'seek to step down as head football coach but continue as atheltic director at the University o j Arkansas. He has announced only that he 'ill recommend a reorganization of School sald'ycstcrclay.' In a siaterniMit yesterday afternoon Coach Moslcy announced that contracts sent to the three schools for the renewal of relations for two more years, nave been returned unsigned. Little nock and Pine Bluff were the fust to return the contracts. Coach Moslcy said, and North , Little Rock returned I Is pact early this,wek. The Dig six schools' reasons for dropping the Chicks from their 10SO schedules varied. Coach Mosley said. Little Rock officials claimed that the Tigers could not renew their contract because (hey wanted to P'ay more out-of-state games, Indicating that they plan to schedule only a minimum number of intra- stotc games as possible next year. Coach Elvin Ooiscr of North Little Rock advised Coach Mosley that the Wildcats have picked up Van Buren on their schedule in place of Blythcville Ijerause he figured occasional schedule changes benefited a school, while Pine Blurt officials stated thai they were "unable to find a place for Blytheville" on their 1930 slate. All three of the schools, however, said that their relations with Blythcville have been pleasant and regretted that they could not renew them. ^ Agreement Hollered Mutual However, it is believed that the throe schools dropped Blythcville by mutual agreement. It has been reported to school officials here that during a recent Big Six meeting in ) Little Rock, coaches of Little Rock, North Little Rock and Pine Bluff held a private conference and the mend" stirred more .speculation, for the probability would not have to have permission of the Board of Trustees or the University's Athletic Council to take any steps shorter lhan employment of a head coach. I" Little Rock, the Arkansas unsigned Gazette today quoted Barnhill: "I have talked lo a do/en per- ions about the coaching job. No lereement has been made with any oi them. I can't choose a man myself. He must have the approval of the president of the university and of the Board of Trustees. Neither can youV choose a man in three or four days." The Gazette said Otis Douglas. 38-year-old assistant coach and tackle for the Philadelphia Eagles, is likely to become head coach of the Razorbacks. The newspaper said it was told by Barnhill. "Douglas visited with us here and .we talked folball. but no deal was made." In Philadelphia, Douglas made a discussion was whether or not to play the Chicks next year. The report, a Blythcville otficial said, came from a Central Arkansas source who is in a position to know. Failure of the three schools to renew contracts with the chicks broke relniions that dated back to 11137 and 1938. The Chicks picked up North Little Rock on their annual schedule in 1037 and the following year Little Rock and Pine Blufl joined their slate and every year since the schools have renewed contracts. "I don't know what I'm going to do for replacements," Coach Mosley stated. "I have written a number of other Arkansas schools but so far I have been unable to schedule but three games for next year."
