Mike Kokcn of N'olre Dame is nc of the greatest football piny-' rs of the year. All-America pickers seldom hoofe two linemen from one team, ut they can select Ernie Smith nil Tav Brown, (he Southern ialitornia tackles, ami will not hereby offend me, loop-Boop Pardtip With Koken and Heller chosen n the- backfield what are you gong to do about (hose splendid Purdue backs, Hortsmaim nnd Pun-is? You couldn't go far wrong in Bickln? Johnny Oshler of Purdue it center. Neither coulrt they arrest you for naming Art Krueger of Marquettc. But tlw man who probably will get the call is Jack Robinson ot Notre Dame and that guess Is just as good as any. The south seems to have four pretty good backs this semester in Die persons nf Eonllie Feathers of Tennessee. John Cain of Alabama. Jimmy Hitchcock of Auburn and Don Zimmerman of Tulane. By the way, the south this year offers some pretty good examples of the text that a winning team Is a great help to a young man In acquiring All-Amevica honors. ^ * * 4 Good Line Dow TIi-lp , "PUfZ" Retitnrr nf Vorth- western lins hnd a hard year, and n>ny be omlttCfl from Iho first All- America team even lhoui>li he lins played harder nnd morr effectively thnn ho did lust year. The trouble Ihls year, we have been informed. Is Iho fact that Northwest em's line isn't up to the gaff. Which Is another example of n text. viz.. Hint n good strong line, helps many n back to an All- America appointment. If Mr. Newman of Michigan is not chosen as first string All- America quarterback, It will be a strange All-America ,ball club. The two greatest football players, on n given day. Hint I have seen llils year were Heller of Pitt against Notre Dnmc and Bentucr of Northwestern nsninsl Purdue. * * t What's in a Name A young man named "Ginnn" Ariall of Auburn Is ''one of the year's bcsl ends. And if tlicv had made his nickname "Airmail" he probably would be All-Am?rlcn stuff. Maybe he will be. anyway! Our choice for All-America fullback will not be named. He Is Broncho Nngnrski of the professional Chicago Bears. There .ire two brilliant siipho- mores In the Big Ton who will bear wnlching for future All-Am- ericir reference purposes. One is Frank Frosclinuer, the boy from Lincoln, 111. (my old home townn. who has been playing such a snappy backfield for Zuppke's Illinl, and giving Newman of Michigan a race for scoring honors. The other Is Duane Purvis of Purdue, a young man from ^fatloon. III. There will be numerous compromises I» the choice of tackles. Joe Kurth and Ed Krause of Notro Dame will be written on some of the tickets. Fred Crawford of Duke will get lots of voles. • * « Alt-America Hook !.*» Hlnchinan of Ohio Stnlo Is Hc's an OM Grlilifpr George Tratlmi. who plays fon'.- ball for tlio Chicago Hears pro outfit, is 35 ysars old.
