BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER SO, 1954 \Jne Jsn L-tark Courier News Sports Editor At Last/ Blind Hog Finds Acorn— But There's Always Another Week The blind hog has found that proverbial acorn ... at long last we finally won at this game of pigskin picking. Not only did we pick 'em better than the winner in the Courier News contest last week, we did things up brown' by bringing home some Jonesboro money, too. In fact, we did much better, in the Jonesboro contest than we did in our own. Missed, two there and five here. But this is a new week and we must set about the task of trying to protect our .792 batting Average. *• * * ;'ARMY OVER MICHIGAN—South Carolina's upset of the Cadetstoss- ed us a mean curve last week. We dare say nobody even dreamed it would happen. After all, haven't moc been sounding off loudly about this year's Army team? They prob- bly had forgotten South Carolina is "still in the Union. But the Cadets- should rebound after last week's nightmare - with the Gamecocks and get back on the right foot in this one. Army by 14 points. :*'..-.*'* TCU OVER 'ARKANSAS — The Ratorbacks proved something last week but so far. we haven't figured but just what. Frankly, with all the moaning and groaning 'coming out of Fayetteville, we' didn't think : they could score 40 points. TCU, on the other hand, looked tremendously impressive in giving Oklahoma's Sooners all they wanted. Which adds up to a slight hint that the Christians might well be the big thorn in the Southwest patch this.year. TCU by 12. * * * GEORGIA TECH OVER SMU — Another case of rebounding is due here. The Techsters hit a mighty tough knot in Florida last week and came off on the short end of a 14-12 score. But in recent years the Ramblin Wrecks haven't been guilty of making the same mistake twice in too many cases. Georgia Tech by 20. * * * NOW.

SPORTS add Football Still 2-30 That's largely because the presence of Leahy and family practically assures a sell-out at home games. • Despite the fact he was watching Ms first Fighting Irish football game as a spectator, the former Notre Dame coach was in a familiar situation as he walked into -the big bowl before the Texas game. He'was surrounded by what looked like enough people to be a starting team. Only this time it was his wife and offspring he convoyed, not a football squad. Mrs. Floss Leahy and six of their eight children had come along to help him root the-Irish home, filling up a box near the 40-yard line. Frank, Jr., 18; Sue, 16; Flossie, 14; Jerry, 11; Jimmy, 7: and Freddie, 5, were there. Leahy's two babies were left behind at his Long Beach, Ind., home. For a few minutes prior to the opening kickoff, The Master enjoyed the life of a garden variety spectator, shaking hands with old friends, getting- the kids arranged in their seats and, for the first time in his life, paying for a Notre Dame program. Once the game was underway, however, a trace of the old tension returned. A standing room throng of more than 57,000 watched the contest, but Leahy's chair, was cold NERVOUS — Spectator Frank when the final gun sounded. Aside* Leahy puts hand to face as from a little wear and tear on the edge of the seat you'd never have known it was occupied. Leahy, whose intense concentration and high-octane worrying forced him to retire from coaching last season after 11 years at Notre Dame, was never in danger of fainting. But he found it impossible to sit back and relax. His edginess was that of a diehard Notre Dame rooter.

But once I saw that team -n action, I calmed down in a hurry." » * * Leahy, like Brennan and his staff, gave, credit to ND's rugged linemen, who shut the Texans out for the first time in 76 games.
