(NEA) By Associated Press NEW YORK—Southern California and Washington State, two west coast powers with Rose Bowl ambitions, collide in Los Angeles tonight to set off a burst of activity officially launching the college football season. Beore the week end is spent, four of the top 10 teams in the Associated Press' pre-season poll —Maryland, George Tech, California and Texas (Christian — will have tested their biceps. Southern California's Trojans, with a 7-4 record last year that almost landed them in the Rose Bowl, return a veteran squad with newly-adopted jingle wing attack built around tailbacks Jimmy Sears and Al Carmichael. Coast observers admit they threaten to be a major factor in the race for conference honors, ranking perhaps with California, and UCLA. Washington State, with Al Kircher moving up to the head coaching job, is said to boast the best material since the Rose Bowl team of 20 years ago. The Cougar ttack is built around an ace battery consisting of passer Bob Burkhart and receiver Ed Barker. Other football activity tonight is a bit on the light side with Alabama playing host to Mississippi Southern and Mississippi engaging Memphis State. Alabama and ole Miss are heavily favored. Nearly half a hundred games involving major teams from coast to coast are scheduled Saturday. The headliner is the intersoc- tional battle between Texas Christian, a hot favorite for the Southwest championship rated ninth in the pre-season poll, and Kansas, a strong contender to uproot Oklahoma's dynasty in the Missouri Valley. The game at Lawrence, Kan., will be the first of the season to be televised on a national hookup under the NCAA restricted TV program. The battle will be beamed across the country by NBC, starting at 2 p. m. (CST). Maryland, the Southern Conference stepchild which was suspended a year for accepting the Sugar Bowl bid, takes its No. 2 pre-sea­ son rating behind Michigan State against Missouri at Columbia. George Tech, No. 3, is host to The Citadel. California, No. 8. entertains a strong West Coast independent. College of the Pacific. By Associated Press .ALBUQUERQUE ~ Picture, if vou will, a football game anytime after next January. Before the game, the coach meets his rival, shakes hands warmly and exchanges pleasantries about the weather, the kids and the missus. The whistle blows, and the coach sits demurely on the bench, his hands folded in repose. Occasionally he turns to one of the players on the bench and requests: "Malinkowski, be so good as to go in there and tell the right guard he just doesn't seem to be feeling up to snuff today and to come sit down for a while." There's a fumble and the official awards the ball to the other club and adds a 20 yard penalty on the coach's team. "Tsk, tsk," says the coach taking a few notes. Coaches might have to act along those lines under a new code of ethics drawn up by seven of the nation's top football coaches. Dudley De Groot, head coach at the University of New Mexico, has released terms of the code which will be presented to the American Football Coaches Association at it's January meeting. It is expected to be approved. De Groot is chairman of a committee appointed to draw up a code governing coaches' conduct. It calls for: No crying towel statements to the press on how many players have been lost through injuries or scholastic shortcomings. » No participation in football polls, game of the week guessing contests or rating systems. No squabbling in the public press with the school administration, the athletic council of the officials. No endorsement of any product "not in keeping with the traditions of the coaching profession" such as liquor and tobacco. No pressure on faculty members to boost the grades of a failing halfback. No showing of slow motion game films to the press or alumni in a manner "which may incite them to label the officials incompetent." No promises to high school athletics which can't be kept and no exaggeration or running down of other schools. On the positive side, coaches would have to be courteous to the officials, rival coaches and players on the bench. If there are any gripes about the officiating, there's to be no public display or mention in the newspapers. A letter should be written to the group which assigned the official whose judgment is challenged. The dressing room doors would be locked to the press for 15 minutes following each game to allow the coach time to cool off and to prevent the "we were robbed" conaments. Any infraction of the code could bring suspension or expulsion from the coaches' association. Coaches drawing up the code were De Groot, representing the Skyline Eight; Ray Eliot of Illinois for the Big Ten; H. M. Russell, SMU, Southwest Conference; Bill Murray, Duke, Southern Conference; Jess Hill, USC, Pacific Coast; Bud Wilkinson, Oklahoma, Big Seven; and Dick Harlow, former AFCA president, as member at large. GRID BRIEFS By Associated Press CHICAGO — Big Ten football squads prepared for last big scrimmage sessions over the weekend before their opening games a week hence. Here are the highlights: Purdue—In today's public intra- squad game, a veteran ' 'white" team, quarterbacked by Dale Samuels, will play a numerically superior but greener "black team. Northwestern — Both offensive and defensive platoons drilled ih the rain, Halfback Wally Jones, featured with his running. Veteran guard Ralph Jecha returned after being out with a broken nose. Michigan—The Wolverines went through a long pjunting drill with halfback Ted Ktess and quarterback Bill BiUings doing the kick ing. Illinois—Dick Miller, 210 pound tackle from Lanark, 111., rejoined the squad from the injured list. Notre Dame—The Irish worked Dy Asaoel>t«d Pros Boston's and Philadelphia's two teams, the Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers will have plenty to do with deciding the pennant winners in the major leagues, although none has a chance at the titles. As the flag races entered the home stretch today, the National League schedule calls for the fourth place Phillies to meet the pace-setting Brooklyn Dodgers three times and clash with the challenging New York Giants six times. Boston's Braves meet the Dodgers six times, the Giants three. That sums it up, because Brooklyn and New York have just those nine games left in which the Giants will try to overcome a three-game deficit. The World Champion New York Yankees' chances for a fourth straight American League pennant depend largely upon what they do in six games against the fourth place Philadelphia Athletics. Their other three games are with the Boston Red Sox. Cleveland, trailing New York by 2% games, meet the Tigers— their nemeses — six times and the White Sox twice. Third place Chicago is mathematically out of title consideration. The Tigers have clinched the cellar. Today's schedule has the Phillies playing the Giants under the lights in the first of a three-game series at Shibe Park. It'll be Sal Maglie against young Curt Simmons. Brooklyn goes against the Braves in the first of three games at Boston. Manager Chuck Dressen has nominated Preacher Roe to oppose Max Surkont. Philadelphia's Robin Roberts, with 25 victories, figures to face the Dodgers at least once and the Giants twice. Against the Dodgers he has a five for five record this season. The Giants have beaten him three out of four. The Yankees' jinx could well be Bobby Shantz. The Athletics' little southpaw has won 23 games but has a 3-3 split with the Yanks. He'll be on the mound against Vic Raschi at Yankee Stadium tonight. At Cleveland, also at night, the Indians pin their pennant hopes on Early Wynn, a 21-game winner, against Detroit's Ted Gray. Fights Last Night By Associated Press NEWARK, N. J. — Archie McBride, 190%, Trenton, N. J., out­ pointed Jimmv Walker, 190, Plainfield, N. J. (10). GOOD START — Making his professional bow at New York's St. Nicholas Arena, Floyd Patterson knocked out Eddie God- boid in the fourth round. The Brooklyn lad was the middleweight star of the United States boxing team In the Olympic Games. (NEA) ATTENTION, EAGLES Music Saturday Night by RHYTHMAIRES ENTERTAINMENT COMMITTEE.
