Kmite Rocknp, wrlltrn by William i Brauchcr, spcrts editor uf -SKA Srr- vice, who was Intimately acquaint- j ed with the fnmnus coach. } BY WILLIAM IIKAUUIRK i NKA Service S|Kirts Kdtlor [ . Knute RocJtnc was Illumed for n j lot ot "psychology" tliat IIP never deserved. Most of Rock's psychology was expressed in liis linnUltnu of men. Thus several years ngo Hockne i started a second team InckfWd lift game wilh 1'rircelon. Tlicrc wore many comments In trie Sunday newspapers to Hie cflecl that Hock- ne "by a master stroke ol psychology had upset the aplomb o( Ihc mighty Tiger." The fact was that Kocknc started that substitute set of backs because the first siring brickfield was being disciplined. It happened that the men of the first string backfield had begun to lake themselves pretty seriously, owing to a number of laudnlory vvrileups they lind received. Rockne's "psychology" brought them down—and when he did send them Into the game they romped like wild horses. Last year, he scouted Ihc (xnver- ful Northwestern team personally. When reporters sought him out asking an opinion of the eleven that Notre Dame was to meet the following Saturday, Rocknc spoke IriHhls wise: "We may have some trouble with those big Purple linemen—but I'll be able to tell you how good they arc next Saturday night." Was Rockne aiming that ns ti psychological dart at his own men? The fact is that Notre Uame did have plenty of trouble with "those blg'Purplc linemen" Just as Rockno had said—tail the touchdown, after three and three-quarter periods of gruelling line-play and end runs, finally came when Schwartz carried the ball right through tackle. Carideo had called line-play alter line-play against [he Purple and had seen the attempts wrecked before they could get fairly slarlcJ. Undaunted, as though trying to make Rock's prediction about "how good they are" come Irne, he kepi plugging away with end runs anil off-tackle plays. " Finally, that off-tackle p!ay went through. Carideo had answered j Rock's question. The team had dispelled Rock's doubts as to what could be done to "that big Purple line." It was as though the Notre Dame team that day had taken up' a Challenge from Us coach—and made him like it. The Blythcville Chlckasnws air'.

Then "Yen felloes might as well go t? the showers before Cannon spoil; ony more plays!" Cannon was stunned—but he came back. His play against Army said.

Among the last States to be admitted into rh; Union, Oklahoma is now , tlurd in oil production and ranks among the leaders in ccaon and wheat. In 1905, two years before Oklahoma was admitted as a State, the discovery of the Glen Tool near S.ipulpa forever placed OUahom.i in the vanguard of ,il! oil-producing States. In the comparatively few years since the first discovcry K;, f,,. of oil wcsr of the Mississippi River, millions of dollars hive poured into the pockets of the people of the Southwest through royalties, leases and taxes.
