TJIUKSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, .1932 JOT fl5 TEJ PLfilS Occidcnlal College Instructor Believes Players Should Run Team. BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS BY EBSK1NE JOIIN'SOX NBA Service Writer LOS ANGELES.- When Occidental College lootball squad meets the University of Arizona, Sept. 23 In Pasadena's famous Hose Bowl, its coach will be just another spectator. Adopting (he slogan, "football fo'r (lie players," officials of tlie southern California institution have un- dcrtaksn an unusual experiment. They have abandonee! tr.e position of football coach, and William - Anderson, who was named to the "y job last year before the plan was adopted, has been appointed as "instructor." :,,>,,-, "Instructor' 1 Anderson is teaching the boys the fundamentals of the great American game, developing the team play and selecting the men for each position. In no sense of the word, however, will he coach the team during the playing of games. Once the men take Ihe field, they will be Hie maslcrs of their own fate. They will map their own campaign, choose their own plays, Eel up their own defense, nnd wilt not be dependent upon Anderson in any manner. This work will fall upon a ''board of strategy." headed by Jimmy .Meeks, 1032 football captain, and t«-o other experienced players, with one other player named by Anderson for each game. Tile idea is Anderson's own. Though trained under the iron- hand of Bob Zuppke al Illinois, Anderson declares toa much stress has been placed upon the pcsltion of football coach. "I am a firm believer that the game should be returned to the players," jie says. "We have adopted this plan for the 1932 season, and if it Is a success will be u in following years." Tile Cubs will win the world series because they are an inspired bail team. They are traveling in tlie Earns high gear in which tlie Cardinals rushed along last year. The Cards were inspired by Pepper Martin and Burlcigh Grimes The Cubs are hopped up by Charles Grimm. I can still hear Coach Jimmy Burke's rumbling laugh when we discussed the scries the other day "What are you goin 1 to do about them base hits, my boy " was his comment. * * The Cold Fijnrw Jimmy Uurke has the edge there The Yanks are one of the mos powerful run-producing outfits ever pi.t together.

But they had the same kind o fence-wrecking ball club in 1926 and old Alex stopped them cole in the lough s]»ts. Okl Alex wa n nghl-handcd pilclier, too. Base hits arc important, but ther arc emotional factors that mean a great cieal in any game; and Jim ^iny Burke can laugh at that, too ~1 I can hear him say: "And d \ you believe in fairies?"

At a meeting last night a drive i- funds lo provide ligMmg facili- es at the high school park was rganlzcd an<i will start today or Dmorrow. The movement to light Haley ield Is based on the belief of the umnl and business men's group hat hundreds of football fans of lythevllle and surrounding terri- >ry who are -unable to attend day- me games because of their busi- ess duties will welcome an oppor- untty to see night football. Night football has been played 1 many parts of the country for :e past two years and enthusiasts eclared has helped to bring many Ugh school and small college's ath- etic fund "out of the red." The first game for the Chicka- aws and the opening game of their season will be played here Frids.y. Sept. 30 and will be at night under loodliglii^ if the drive Is sucerss- ul as power company officials have Iready given assurance that the ield can be lighted by that time. Other games to be played here are lemphis Tech, Oct. 14; Jonesboro fov. 4; Newport, Nov. 18 and Mcm- his Humes high, Nov. 24. Actual cost of equipping Haley 'ield with proper lights will cost wtwecn 5500 and $600. A group of .bout a dozen business men have Iready loaned the athtelic committee $145 to start the drive and "nake flrst payment on the lighting ystem. The drive opening today or omorroH- will be for direct small ontributions. The remainder of the und will be raised; it is hoped, from ate receipts above the school's ac- ual expanses and other methods of ecnring funds formulated by the athletic committee which may in- llldn a pniiT\!f> r\t f^r, r ii__ii WALLOPED-, NATS cannot attend during the daytime and to wipe out debts of the school's athletic fund that the lighting project has been advanced. Tire ath- lelic committee sponsoring the movement has no direct connection with the public schools but is composed simply of alumni and business men. If night football gets off to a good start here It Is possible that the high school may arrange to pliy ther games on its schedule here instead of away from home. It is believed that the second game of the season with PIggott may be transferred here If desired and the same may apply to games scheduled at Wilson and Shawnee. ludc games. a couple of pro football The school faces a 4400 deficit in ts athletic funds from past years and must pay out about SOW to "-'ting teams and incidental expenses during ihe present reason.
