'22— (UP)— If you happen to be ovor Gi or under IS, have fallen arches, no teeth and myopic eyesight, then drop whatever you arc doing at once and board the very ih-sl plane to Ghica- go. If you manage lo get there before S p. m. Ibis evening, you'll never again be forced to hide from an installment collector, pro-date your checks to I.he gas company or ask the grocer to call back on Tuesday. For if you qimlify, there's a. line job waiting for you. It's a job which may pay us much as $JO,000 a year, 01113 which provides nine months of vacation for every three months of work, and one which provides free meals and all the ..rain l-rips Lo Dol.roil, Cleveland and Washington, D. c., that a man can ask, Ail you need do to clinch it once you arrive in Chicago is ask the nearest policeman to direct you to tlie hotel where the National' Pro- fesional Football league is holding its annual draft of college players, i Don't, shy away at mention of that j word college, now, for it doesn't mean a thing. Lou don't need a degree;,) just a good, chronic disability. You see, Ibis iO-'il draft will be unique. Jn other >v;irs, Iho show was just a big lotlvry. Coaches and owners hold the cards, attendants spun a wheel and called out numbers and every so often Steve Owen or George llalas yollod "bingo." But no longer, thmik you. Another draft—the army's—has changed the course of the raffle. : The coaches and owners who will : sll down tonight to divide the I'.Vd college player harvest won't grab at a player merely because he was a unanimous All-Ainoric-nn, weighs 2''it) pounds and can out-run Donnor 'and Blibccn. A great many more qualifications must he considered or Uie magnates will ilnd IhoyVo hid for hoys who can't be delivered.. Where once I he pro heads preferred their players fleol, famous and king si/.o, tonight they'll pick them for their physical unJHness, the number of their children nu«1 their advanced years. The reason Is • obvious: one aged tackle who can't =.block but can report, for practice is :morc valuable now than seven Har- ;mons who arc liable for call Jo the -services. ! The army draft, has fogged the : entire professional game with uncertainty and the owners won't complicate their tasks unnecessarily. Bruce Smith of Minnesota might be the Ilrst player gobbled up by the coaches. Tonight he'll probably be just, a wall-flower because ,\vc all Know Smith's draff number is lower than a woman atlilctc's heels. Offhand, I'd say the lirsl man tabcd tonight would be Bill Dudley of Virginia because he is onlyJ'J, but this youngster has said flatly he! won't play as a professional. Frankic Albert of Stanford may be .taken on a gamble by the Bcurs or i Philadelphia because he has been [schooled in the T formation, but SJTroni there on it's anybody's guess :how the boys will go. •. That is because players who nre •married, who are young, or who— •like Frank Sinkwicli of Georgia, for 'Instance—already have been rc- •jjctcd for military, service, are certain to bo available for football .:longer than the Smiths, the \Vcst- "falls, and the Lachs;. The army li»s iilrst choice, arid'.it's only common /sense, for pro owners to cover up •wherever possible. So instead'of meroly checking. I- 'Q. ratings and prodding muscles, they've checked the boys for tli« happy possibility they may JlmJ obscure', maladies, large families or other skeletons in. the closet. Obviously, there aren't enough grainl- •fathers of physical wrecks available in the college ranks lo 6° around. If: you arc old enough, young enough, physically decrepit or married long enough, you may b in«f. center-for- Pittsburgh or for Cleveland, next season. 13ul you can'1, have .the right half post on the Bears. That's for me, because, boy, am decrepit!' . Cleanliness Next to God/Incss . 'The quotation, "Cleanliness is next to godliness," is taken from a sermon by John Wesley on dress.
