J., says "it's just what the game needed." IN A TEST, Pitchin' Paul, now a manufacturer's representative, gripped that ball and held it free while 15 pounds of weights were attached. He was able to grip the ball long enough to demonstrate its nonskid feature. It is one of many tests product researchers Jack Kavey nnd Arch Turner conducted for a Chicago sporting goods firm. The cllns on the ball is possible by a new tanning: process that permeates and gives a tackiness to the pebbled cowhide leather. Its maker says it will never wear off and performs In wet or dry weather. The player notices a traction that mokes the ball cling to sleeve and body of his uniform jersey.

LITTLE ROCK (AP) — A firey Arkansas halfback who overcame a deficit in size to advance from intramural sports to a starting position on two Razorback football teams is the new football coach at Texarkana High School. The border city's School Board last night chose Joe Thomason to succeed Bobby Ellen, who quit last season after his team dropped nine james while winning only three. Supt. W. M. Locke said Thomason was notified of the appointment by telephone last night and accepted it. The 20-year-old defensive wizard doesn't graduate from the university until June, and will report for duty in August. The Texarkana job is a plum among the state's high school coaching positions. The school, also known as '.he Kazorbacks, is a member of the Big Eight Conference, which embraces Arkansas' largest high schools. Thomason. a native of Hot Springs, didn't get. a football scholarship to enter Arkansas, but coaches who saw him playing in- trfmural football as a freshman recruited him for the Razorback varsity. He won his first letter under former Coach Bowden Wyatt as a sophomore, and second string wingback, in 1953. When the 1954 season opened, Thomason was the starting wingback and held down the job throughout the season, in which Arkansas won the Southwest Conference championship. Last year, he Was a starting halfback in new Coach Jack Mitchell's split T formation. Thomason, who weighs only 165, won a reputation as an excellent blocker and pass receiver who also was dangerous as a runner in spot duty. But, the swifty_really won his spurs as TTTlefensive player. He had few, if any, peers on the Razorback squad as a pass defense man.
