THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1934 SET OF Blylhoville Mentor May Be Forced To Use Wingman In Backfield By J. P. FRIEN'il When a (oolba!) coach a I a small high school can polnl with pride to one member of his team and call him a star it Is considered nutliiii' out of the ordinary. But when no less than four luminaries on the same eleven ran be strutted out bcrorc the cash customers—that IS .sunipin'i Coacli C. A. Hamilton finds himself in that embarrassing position al Piggott. His Mohawks are booked to appear at, Haley Field tomorrow night with the Blytlieville Chickasaws. The four members or the Mohawks are: Kettles, Iiillback, weight 1DO; Davis, halfback, weight ICO; Underwood, tackle, 180 pounds; Boyd, end, 160 pounds. Davis and NCUICS laivc borne the brunt of the backfield work all season. Against -Wiiimt Ridge the foriner smashed through for all his team's 21 points. In. subduing Poplar Bluff, which, by the way, won •the Big six conference ui Missouri last year, Nettles plowed the strong Mule line repeatedly for long gains and .was n demon on the defense. Sprinter oh Team tliidcrwood is (he speed merchant of tlie group. In track this giant tackle shows his heels to almost everyone ill this district. Last year he WHS .the winner o! the 220 yard dash, his favorite, in close to record tfmc. Hated an exceptionally strong detelislve man, Boyd also can do his stuff when his team has the oval. He is a good receiver of passes and blocks well. Those who have seen the Mohawks in action report their style of piay is of the wide-open type, plenty of reverses, spinners, end runs, and forward passes. Davis is the spark of the attack, a sharp shooter on heaving the pigskin, as well as quite a ball carrier. Their record for the Piggott 13, Poplar Bluff 6; Luxora 0, Piggott H; Kennett (Mo.) 0, Piggott 0 Walnut Ridge 50; Piggott 21.

Neill Reed, the new boxing and wrestling inspector, and the committee are working hand in hand, according to Parker. An outside man is acting as matchmaker but his cards must be satisfactory to Parker and his committee.

A boon to the harassed football linesman is this Invention of Stan BorlEskc, Fresno, Calif,, State College coach. Two poles'connected with a 10-foot chain are used. One pole has a sighting tube which reflects simultaneously jthc position of the tall and two flog markers placed at opposite ends of the field on the sidelines.

ATHENS, Oa., Oct. 25.— There Is iiiite 11 bit of talk txMng bandied ibout caiH'crnliig the sad state of he far-Hun^ Notre Dame system. 1 recently have read several ar- icles snyiiiu that the famous sj's- cm, introduced mid de"o!oped by lie Immortal Kntitc Rockne, Is gong to seed, and (hat it won't be ong until there will be no such hliiB. The true Notre Dnnic system 'cut down in a flaming plane on Kansiis pi-alric where Rockne net his death. All coaches laUBht he system by Hocknc arc only poor notations In carrying on his creed, mt there arc plenty of good fea- urcs and basic fundamentals about he system we can teach that will servo as a team's- attack nncl de- Tense just as any other system. Just as Rockne realized the ultl- nate success with his system, so, I believe, he could have done with my other system. Ills personality, eatlcrsliip, energy and imagination could have brought fame to any style of play, just us it did to the one dial Jesse Harper inaugurated at Notre Dame about 19H. Most of the Irisii coaches have changed tho general style of at- ench year, although returning the characteristic backflcld shift of the system. 1 believe the so-cnllcd system Is better than ever, and that the idea of its need ing extraordinary material is th bunk. There is every type of play run from this shifting bacfcfield attack, and because of this, it welcomes almost every typo of football player. The idea that the comparatively new one-scconrl stop rule lor shifting ruined the oflense is entirely erroneous. The shift does not depend on momentum for its success. After the team shifts right, or left, the defense must shift to meet ils strength, if the defense docs not do this, those strong side off. tackle plays and end runs should Game «°True, the system iias bee changed, but I am sure that if Rockne were alive today ho would OSCEOLA, Ark., Oct. 25.— Handi- hc ol >e ol the fust to develop pos- .
