Said Bowen: "You Couldn't be sending 'me in if you thought I couldn't, would you, coach?" By WALTER L. JOHNS Central Press Sport* Editor , All the fancy adjectives in the book are being dusted off by sports writers;this,football season,as th'ey sing the praises of a 17-year-old freshman who Is being touted as one o4j^"the greatest" football players ever to hit the college campus. The object of all the flowery accolades is Earl (Jug) Girard, sensational freshman halfback of the University of Wisconsin team. According to scouts, coaches and observers, Girard is one "helluva" ball player. ' He's a one-man team, according to the information, in that he does everything and does it well. And, he has lived up to his advance notices in games ' played to date. Baseball Star? Whether Girard goes on to become one of the big names of football or struggle, along like Bill De- Correvont did ,after he had been built up to a "super man" remains to bejaeen. The fact is that Girard may even forsake football later for baseball lor he has all the makings of a big league baseball star. A third baseman, Girard already has received bids from 5 major league clubs. On the football field this 17-year- old freshman does everything. He is the key to trie Wisconsin attack and he is playing his- first season with the Badgers! Even before the season started he was hailed as probably "the greatest" passer to hit the Madison campus and' the youth has begun to live up to that, too. In his first (-AMPFIR By JACK \WEICH> "THEY" .vised to say, and I partially, subscribed to the idea myself, that the pheasant rooster is a rather clumsy, slow-flying bird, heavy and awkward,. an easy target for the gunner. Sometimes it's true he doesn't appear to be flying very speedily, but if you will begin counting four nt the instant the ':.' bird flushes you'll be surprised at ' the distance he's put between himself and you before you end the count. And once the season's well .'. under way and the roosters have be. come wary and gunshy they can get - up'with the velocity of a bullet and a change of pace that would do credit to a mourning dove. This change of pace, and change in direction of flight, too, is all the more deceiving because it's scarcely noticeable. There's no abrupt maneuvering It just happens, and in the meantime maybe you have poured a charge of chilled shot into empty space. Formerly when a rocketing rooster flushed from under my feet and I scored a clean misa I would blame the shot, powder charge, choke of the gun and everything else but myself, where the f,ault really lay. More specifically, it was the fault of under leading. Those birds often fly 3 games he completed 50 per cent of his tosses but fell down slightly, against Notft Dame, completing only a third of his many heaves. • Boots 'Em Far He's a fine runner and a brilliant kicker. He averaged 51 yard* against Northwestern and kicked One that went over 70 yards. A rugged player and hard to hurt, Girard has played every minute of every game without a substitution. That's a record equaled by few athletes. Most noticeable characteristics ex- rOUTDOOR THING! FIHE^QUALITIES 100% VIRGIN WOOL!

He's A Speedster The ruffled grouse is famed as a speedster, but I've read somewhere Lhat he can only negotiate about 25 miles an hour, while pheasants under full steam' can travel a mile a minute. Whether or not this is strictly true the fact remains that much of the partridge's reputation has been built up in heavy brush, where you catch only a glimpse of him before he vanishes. This, coupled with the roar of his wings, gives the impression of great speed. I'd cast no aspersions on the grouse—^in my opinion he rates No. l_but the difficulty in downing him is certainly due as much to the environment in which he flies as to his momentum. The pheasant, on the other hand', is usually flushed able, in that he had flushed of his own accord somewhere in our rear and chose to sweep past within easy range. He was hitting on all eight as he approached, and seemed to put on a little- extra steam as he passed. Pass, he did, hesitating not an instant .as old No. 12 spoke twice and my companion's 16 sounded two encores.
