MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 27,1954 SLYTHBVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Notre Dame May Stand By And Watch Grid Giants Fall Dirge Sounded Eagles Hang 28-10 Loss on Paul Brown's Perennial Winners NEW YORK Ifl — It was a long- delayed funeral dirge they were chtnting for the departed Cleveland Browns around the National Football League today. Maybe it wasn't so sad in the extern division, which the Browns have ruled with an iron hand the past four years. The other clubs, especially the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants, can look ahead to sharing in some of the melon. The Browns won the league championship in 1950, then lost the playoff to Los Angeles the next "year and to Detroit the following 'two years. All the time, their eastern division foes had little to say to their acknowledged masters. Times have changed, though. ;Coach Paul Brown lost six of his •.•mainstays for one reason or another and he hasn't been able to find satisfactory replacements. Eagle* Win 28-10 ". The Eagles took full advantage yesterday, when the entire loop played opening games, and slugged the hapless Browns 28-10. Nor did the score tell how one-sided the game was. Otto Graham, the great Brownie passer, ^was held to a paltry 97 yards, and the once crushing ground attack gained but 47. On the basis of early returns.^ it appears that the Eagles and - Giants will fight it out for the dethroned Browns' lofty perch. The Giants showed considerable power In crushing the Chicago Cardinals 41-10. • Elsewhere, the opening day results produced no eyebrow lifting. The Lions clubbed the Chicago 'Bears 48-23; San Francisco whipped Washington 41-7; Los Angeles slaughtered Baltimore 48-0 .•and Pittsburgh edged Green Bay 21-20. SAFETY FIRST —Wyoming football players make, use of the ultimate in protection during practice. Mouthpiece in place, Guard Bob Taylor wears gear reminiscent of a baseball backstop.

WITNESS my hand this th« 17th day of September, "1954. , GERALDINE LT.STON, I Commissioner in Chancery, i 1/20-3740/41 At Least One Other Power Due to Bite Dust This Week By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Notre Dame, apparently headed for new glories under young Terry Brennan, may just stand aside and watch other top contenders for national football honors kill off themselves. With the season only two weeks *> ol«-, four teams picked to challenge the Irish for the coveted No. 1 role \ — Texas, Illinois, Michigan State and Georgia Tech —' already have been beaten. Another, Oklahoma, has had a tight squeeze, having to score twice in the fading minutes to beat Tex-! as Christian 21-16, and the Sooners may not be as fortunate Oct. 9 \ aprainst Texas at Dallas. ! At least one other recoghiafcd power, .and possibly more, will fall this week-end when action increases with an imposing intersectional schedule' featuring a clash of two Bowl giants — Maryland and UCLA. Maryland, last year's mythical rated the best on the Pacific Coast, tangle Friday'night at Los Angeles in a game which is bound to throw new light on the national picture. Wisconsin is at Michigan State, Tennessee at Duke, Mississippi at Villanova in other games involving teams which have caught the early fancy of those, looking for a bandwagon. Irish Should Survive Notre Dame, meanwhile, appears a solid bet- to survive its own rugged, schedule and go through to the honors for which the team was picked in the pre-season Associated Press poll. For those who might have been skeptical that the 26-year-old Brennan could step into the shoes of Knute Rockne and Frank Leahy, the Fighting Irish-had the answer Saturday in a 21-0 triumph over a big, strong Texas team which had been called the best from the Southwest in years'. ' The Irish entertain an-old state rival, Purdue, this ; week and are expected to duplicate approximately last year's 37-7 score. Texas was good enough to be picked No. 4 in the pre-season AP poll behind the Irish, Oklahoma and Maryland. Oklahoma is idle this week. Illinois, the No.. 5 team, was stunned by Penn State, 14-12. Mich* Rose Bowl champions,-fell before Iowa, 14-10. Georgia Tech, the class of Dixie and rated No. 7 before the season began, 'lost to aroused Florida, 13-12. Tech was rated fifth in the more recent poll based on the first week's games. Illinois was No. 6 and Michigan State No. 7 in this lineup, which was headed by Oklahoma. Sooners Had Scare The Sooners had a tremendous scare in the game with TCU and barely won in the last quarter after a sophomore Oklahoma sub, Jim Harris, had taken over for the injured Gene Calame, who wrenched his shoulder. An apparent TCU touchdown was nullified when TCU's captain, Johnny Courch, said an end-zone pass touched the ground. Another major upset saw Army, figured to cop Eastern honors this year, fall before an under-rated South Carolina team 34-20 but Navy showed unexpected strength in whipping William & Mary 27-0. Duke emerged as possibly the South's best bet for the , national crown by crushing Pennsylvania,. 52-0. ThQ Blue Devils face a stern test this week in Tennessee, 19-7 winner over Mississippi State. UCLA lived up to advance notices by thrashing Kansas, 32-7, but the Pacific Coast got a mild surprise when Standord dumped Oregon, a team with Rose Bowl aspirations, 18-13. Nats to Name New Pilot Today WASHINGTON (£>) — The Washington Senators arranged to make an announcement today about next year's manager—and all signs were that it would be the signing of Chuck Dressen, former Brooklyn pilot. Bucky Harris, the Nats' manager for five years, was let out Friday in what the Washington baseball club called a resignation and Har- , ris implied was a firing. The Nat* wound up in sixth place in the Young Porkers Got Experience But 41-0 Victory Over Tulsa Nothing To Get Excited About FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. L?)—The green Arkansas Razorbacks got plenty of touchdowns and game experience in a 41-0 football rout of Tulsa University Saturday. But even the most hslpf ul and optimistic Razorback fan would have to stretch the picture a little out of focus to see the score as foretelling of great things to come. The Arkansas season still includes all the Southwest Conference teams, plus Ole Miss, Louisiana State and Houston University. Versatile Attack After some great postwar teams, Tulsa is rebuilding from scratch. The Razofbaeks, however, showed a versatile attack. They displayed the speed needed to turn an opponent's flanks. And Henry Moore, the bone-rattling fullback from Little Rock who scored'two touchdowns, lived, up to pre-season billing by knocking off 64 yards in 10 carries. Buddy Bob Benson of Dfc Queen, the second string tailback who scored one touchdown, galloped 62 yards in 11 carries.and completed three of three passes for 74'yards. Muffed Two Chances After muffing two early chances tii score, the Razorbacks crossed the goal in the first quarter on Moore's 21-yard crash through left tackle. Arkansas' second quarter touchdown came on a 12-yard pass from Benson to blocking back Bobby Proctor of Helena. __ Three touchdowns in the third quarter blew away Tulsa's hopes. Moore scored from 19 yards out, center Jerry Ford ran 74 yards with an intercepted pass, and Walker plunged across from the one. Benson piled on the final touchdown . with a 21-yard run around end in the fourth quarter. American League. Calvin Griffith, vice president of the club, announced a newj conference in New York City late today. Dressen, who managed Oakland, Calif., this year, was reported to be seeking a three-year contract at $42,500 a year, but there was advance speculation he would sign for two years at $40,000. HELP WANTED- Bobby Dodd professes to have that empty feeling. The Georgia Tech coach claims that in place'of the hard-charging varsity of last fall, he has eight empty uniforms. Of tht 1953 starters, only Billy Teas, 26; Larry Morris, ,47; and Franklin Brooks, 9, remain. The veterans line up with the eight vacated uniforms to dramatize Tech's supposed plight. Yet the Engineers won the pre-season -poll of Southeastern Conference coaches. (NEA) Arkansas Plays TCU Saturday To Officially Open SWCRace By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Texas Christian and Arkansas, a couple of teams that weren't supposed to amoun 1 to much but rebelled against the snide remarks with some good, solid football, open the Southwest Conference championship race this week while the other five members are trying to repair the league's somewhat fractured intersection^ record. . Texas Christian, sensation of the conference although losing its game Saturday, has. convinced the critics that the title race is going to be much more than the heralded one- team affair. The Frogs carried Oklahoma; then ranked No. 1 in the nation, to ,the last gun Saturday, finally losing 21-16. The- Progs were much more impressive than Texas, the big championship favorite, which threw away its chances repeatedly in taking a 21-0 licking from Notre Dame. Arkansas, relegated to the cellar before hurling a single pass, swamped Tulsa 41-0 and looked anything but a weak sister. The Horned Frogs and Razorbacks get together at Fort Worth Saturday night. It's the first week of the season for all seven members to be in action. Southern Methodist is the last team to open the campaign. The Methodist clash with Georgia Tech at Dallas Saturday night.

The coast team doesn't appear too formidable. Rice, which beat Florida 34-14 in Baylor's Bobby Jones Is Talk Of Southwestern Conference By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Young Bobby Jones, the man in the clutch for.. Baylor, ha made himself the most talked about player in the ""Southwest Con ference with his offensive forays that won the Golden Bears tw games. Jones leads the league in total offense. He has rolled up 271 yards on 28 plays with 220 yards of it passing. Jones leads the passers with eight completions in 16 throws, his 220 yards being 115 more than the second place passer, Bonnie Clinkscale of Texas Christian. It's one-two offensive punch at Baylor because' L. G. Dupre of the Bears tops the conference in ball- carrying. Dupfe has romped 152 yards on 29 runs.

BLYIHEVILLE COURIER NEWS PAGE mm Game and Fish News Reports Indicate Squirrel Hunting Will Be Generally Better This Year By THE AWtANSAl GAME AND FISH COMMISSION LITTLE ROCK — After two years of wandering about the state, Arkansas' squirrels are apparently returning to their old haunts in time for Friday's opening of this year'i squirrel season. This seems to be the case with reports coming in from Commission ,_ne wardens indicating an influx n squirrel populations in sections >f the state where hunting has been can for the past two years. Several of these reports have come from the White River country which had irery poor hunting last year. However, squirrel hunting this year is expected to be generally better ihroughout the state with increases squirrel populations reported statewide. For the past two years, there has been widespread migration of squirrels in the state in search of better food conditions. Despite the effects of another drouth year, Mr. Bushytail has apparently seen fit to return to his old stomping grounds and weather the season out this year. Rain and Cooler Predictions of cooler weather and scattered rdin showers are. also welcome news to hunters standing by for the Friday openi^j. However, unless moat sections of the state receive a good deal of rain this week, a squirrel hunter's best friend will be his dog. Still hunters stalking about the woods on brittle dry and noisy leaves and underbrush will be considerably handicapped. Other wise, a great amount of patience will be required of hunters who will have to sit still long enough to convince the squirrels that there is no one around. Although the recommendation is for the use of dogs, they will be less able to pick up a trail with the prevailing dry conditions. The Commission is pleased to announce that from October 5 through the 16th, a special showing of four original Audubon paintings will be held in the Game and Fish Commission Building. Everyone is invited to come and view these beautiful paintings which are famous the world over for their authentic reproduction of wildlife. The showing is being made possible through the cooperation,of the Northwestern Mutual-Life Insurance Company. The insurance company was also instrumental in enabling the Commission to decorate its board room with copies of a number of the Audubon reproductions. sixteen or more year* ol age- must have a license to hunt squirrels, and all non-residents, regardless of age, must hold a non-resident huntinf license. It is not necetamry to hav* the gun plugged in squirrel hunting to reduce the shell capacity to three, as is the caie in hunting dove, quail, turkey, and migratory waterfowl. All dogs used in. hunting squirrels must be properly licensed. JVb Change In Dates Hunters are reminded that the squirrel season does not open until Friday. October l. There has been no change in the dates, October l through December 31. nor in the bag and possession limit, which is eight.
