MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS In Southwest Confcrenci Texas Aggies Chances Slim with Squad of 38 COLLEGE STATION; Tex. (AP) — Texas A&M's chances of beating anybody this year will be on physical condition and fighting spirit, Coach Paul Bryant said last week as he prepared the Aggies for the school's sixtieth football season. The Aggies open with Texas Tech at College Station in a night game Sept. 18 with the thinnest squad in modern-day history of the school. After the opening week of practice, A&M had just 38 on the squad with no more than 24 ready to play. HIT AND RUN "The only chance we have to beat anyone," Bryant declared, is to outfight 'em or by better physical condition, and I've done a very poor job in t>oth conditioning and in getting the.boys aggressive. "We do have a group of wonderful boys but unless I do a better job of toughening them up, Texas Tech will get off to a good start in its effort to break its national scoring record set last year." Bryant made changes during several position the week. The team trained at the Aggie Annex in Junction and he may have to make others in an effort to get two deep at each position. Desperate at Center "We're still desperate at center," Bryant said, "and we haven't found the answer to a replacement for Fred Broussardjun- ior letterman from DeQuincy,La." Broussard quit the squad this week with the explanation that he wasn't helping the team, Bryant said, adding that Broussard had "great potential but under the circumstances of his wanting to quit there was nothing to do but let him go." Richard Vick, former end from Beaumont, a squadman the past two years, and Herb Wolf, Houston junior switched from fullback, are getting attention at the important poet, and Bryant also has shifted Lloyd Hale, sophomore guard, from Iraan, to the position. Anf h« is trying out Troy Summerlin, a team manager who played -high school football at Shreveport but never came out for tfa* team here. Schroeder to Tackl* Other changes tnis fall include Bill Schroeder, regular end as a sophomore last year, going to tackle, an Jack Pardee, leading freshman fullback of 1953, to en. "Pardee has adapted himself exceptionally well," Bryant-said, "an his improvement was a highlight of the practice at our camp." Bryant also was impressed b; Game and Fish News State Nimrods Swing into Action This Week After Doves, Rabbits By THE ARKANSAS GAME AND FISH COMMISSION LITTLE ROCK — Time never passes so slowly for the impatient hunter as the time between hunting seasons, and it has been a long, slow wait since last April's turkey period.

BOB'S GYPSY RUB LINIMENT is settled with these concluding developments: 1. The boys, twin junior linemen Jerry and Joe Hyden, are back in Ada, Okla., with their family. 2. In a nine-hour meeting Saturday the Arkansas Athletic Association delcared the boys eligible for Arkansas high school football, although they no longer live here. 3. The" Razorback Supporters Club of Texarkana, which earlier condemned two officials for not acting quicker in declaring the boys eligible, issued an apology. Recruiting: Charged The Hyden boys moved to Texarkana from Ada in July. Their father, Paul Hyden, is a traveling salesman who says he thought Texarkana Would give 'him a more centralized location in his territory. However, two weeks ago Ada officials filed a protest through the Oklahoma Athletic Association, charging Texarkana with "recruiting" the twins. W. M. Locke, superintendent of Texarkana schools, then barred the boys from going out for football until their eligibility was clarified by J. M. (Johnie) Burnett, executive secretary of the AAA, backed up Locke's decision. Club passed a resolution condemning Locke and Burnett for not taking immediate action on the case. Meeting in Little Rock Saturday, the executive committee of the AAA declared the boys eligible for Arkansas interscholastic athletics. The committee said no Oklahoma officials appeared to press charges. Warning Issued However, the AAA committee warned the Texarkana School Board to take steps to insure against outside groups influencing Texarkana athletics. A member of the AAA committee said the Hydens moved back to Ada because they were "embar- assed about the whole thing." jacy Lawrence, presdient of the Texarkana booster club, issued the club's apology to Burnett and Jocke. It said: "The information used as a basis 'or the condemnation was erroneous . . . and we are not in full pos- ession of all the true facts." tion on the type of gun used, or its capacity for shells, and all dogs used for hunting rabbits must be licensed. Dove shooting starts at 12:00 o'clock noon on Wednesday, September 15, and continues through October 24, making a forty-day period, which is a ten-day extension over last .year's season. The Regulations Cited hunting regulations for doves, which are set by the TJ. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, are as follows: Shooting hours: • M noon until sunset. Bag limit: Eight. Possession limit: Eight. May be taken only with bow and. arrow, or shotguns nojfc larger than ten gauge, and not capable of holding more than three shells. May not be taken by the aid of any motor driven conveyance, motor vehicle, or aircraft. Can't Uie SaM May not be taken by the aid of salt, shelled or shucked or un- shucked corn, wheat, or other grains, or other feed or means of feeding similarly used to lure, attract, or entice the birds to, on, or over the area where hunters are attempting to take them. The terms "shelled or shucked or un- shucked corn, wheat, or other grains," or "other feed or means of feeding similarly used," shall not be construed as including properly shocked grain, standing crops, harvested crop land, or grains BIG TEN SAC'S. COULD TUSH /A/TO A PuSSUtT Of- Foot bo 11 Forum— Uncertain Illinois Line Leaves Race in Big Ten Wide Open By RAY ELIOT Head Coach, Illinois CHAMPAIGN, HI. — (NEA) — Big Ten coaches have a gentlemen's agreement art to put each other on the spot. It's a pact thk couldn't possibly disturb my conscience when I survey the conference field. of normal agricultural planting or harvesting. All dogs used in hunting or retrieving doves must be licensed. The dove hunter will probably be more successful if he stations himself near a waterhole. With all fields and forests in their present, extremely dry condition, all hunters are cautioned to be doubly careful in their handling of campfires, matches and cigarettes. A few seconds used in properly extinguishing fires is ;ime well spent and may save thousands of acres of Hunting territory. Title Bout Set For Mat Card Southern Junior Belt Up for Grabs Tonight Championship wrestling conies to Memorial Auditorum for the first time tonight when Ray Pirett, the "current southern junior heavyweight champion, lays his championship belt on the line in a National Wrestling Alliance-sanctioned title bout. Trying to get it will be Eugene (Red) Roberts, who up until a couple of months ago, wore the coveted belt himself. The two will square off over the no time limit, best two of three falls route with representatives- of the National Wrestling Alliance looking on. This will be the.first time in the history of wrestling in Blytheville tha a^NWA championship bout has been 'held here. Such bouts are generally reserved for metropolitan areas but due to some "string pulling" on the part of Promoter Mike Mei:oney the bout was given DiMaggio Family Clings to Record BOSTON OB — A major league batting record which seems to be welded to the walls of the Di Maggio family trophy room is that of hitting safely in the most consecutive games. The present record of hitting safely in 56 straight games was set by the New York Yankees 1 Joe Di Maggio in 1941, The only time Joe's record has been seriously threatened in the past five seasons was in 1949 when Dom Di Maggio hit safely in 34 consecutive games when he was centerfielder for the Boston Red Sox. to Blytheville. Pirett, a French-Canadian, won the title from Roberts several months ago in a bout at Nashville, Tenn. And under NWA regulations, an ex-champion, if he BO desires, always must be given a chance to regain his title . And, in addition to the championship bout, another bout is also on the card. -Don Fields, brother of Lee Fields, will take on Red Byrd in this one which will be a 90- minute time limit, best two of three falls affair. I heard one of my sport* writing friends break down the Western Conference into a 4-2-4 arrangement. He lumped Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois and Michigan State into one group (though not necessarily in that order) shad^ ing closely Ohio State and Michigan, and followed by Northwestern, Minnesota, Purdue and Indiana. I was reminded how little form means in our circuit by Purdue's 6-0 upset last year of Rose Bowl champion Michigan State—and this year's Boilermakers are rated an improved squad. Wisconsin, a perennial contender, would need only Alan (The Horse) Ameche, who trampled us at Madison last year, to make the Badgers a contender. But in addition, Ivy Williamson can muster Jim MiDer, a 1953 quarterback surprise who, I understand, might play some single wing tailback; guard Clarence Stensby, end Bon Locklin and center Gary Messner—all fine players. * * * * * REFER OXLY TO Notre Dame for Iowa's worth. Winners of their last three in the Big Ten before tieing the Irish in their finale, the Hawkeyes come back with the nucleus of that squad. Capt. George Breeder leads a veteran backfleld, with a potential All-America, Calvin Jones, fronting adepth-laden line. At Illinois, we have problems. People look only at our running backs—J. C. Caroline, Mickey Bates and sophomore newcomer Abe Woodson—but forget that we lost six of seven line starters. Our lone returnee, Jan Smid, is a good one. Reserve tackles from 1953 must develop quickly. We're a little unsettled at quarterback, where Em Lindbeck and Bob Gongola are the only experienced hands. You can't discount the material Biggie Munn willed Duffy Daugherty at Michigan State when it includes players the caliber of halfbacks LeRoy Bolden and John Matsock, the latter shifted from quarterback; quarterback Earl Mor- rail, fullback Gerry Planutis, ends Ellis Duckett and Don Kauth and guard Hank Bullough. * » » OHIO STATE HAS its usual vast bulk of manpower, perhaps a trafle slow in the line but certainly not NEA's Probable All-Midwest Team SPORTS—NEA'S PROBABLE H End—Dick Brubaker, Ohio St. End—Ron Locklin, Wisconsin Tackle—Art Walker, Michigan Tackle—F.

Quarterback Johnny Borton, a real scholar, is reported recovered from his ankle trouble. There was never anything wrong with his throwing. Michigan has outstanding backs in. Tony Branoff and Lou Baldacci, an unusual quarterback who can block and pass. The Wolverines lost a lot through graduation, but strong sophomores make them hopeful. The hopes are boosted by an All-America type tackle, Art Walker. Northwestern could surprise a lot of folks, including Illinois, because of the little turnover in personnel. Twenty-six lettermen are back, led by center John Damore. The Wildcats need only a top quarterback. * * * MINNESOTA LOST Paul Giel, which could be calamitous, but Murray Warmath isn't singing the blues. They grow them big in the Northland. Halfback Bob McNa- •mara is but one example. On rebuilding programs that could pay off any time are Indiana and Purdue. The Hoosiers may have the sophomore phenomenon of the season in Milt Campbell, the amazingly versatile halfback who was the 1943 national decathlon champion. There's always an upset awaiting a complacent foe at Lafayette, where the Boilermaker! come up with guards' like All-Conference Tom Bettis and slick quarterback Froncie Gutman.
