By United I'rrss Scmi-finnl play in tlic Arkansas Conerly Has His "Day"; Clarksdale Citizens Present Him With New Car By William }. fox (1'nilfil Prnn BporU Wrller) CLAKKSDALE, Miss., Dec. 4 (UP) —Charity Conerly, (he kid who passed his way to immortality with a collene football, was a man will) honor In his own home town today. The "chunkor," who led the University ol Mississippi to Its' Jirst Southeastern Conference title In history, had his "day." Clarksdiilc and the people of Hie rich Mississippi Delta came last night to pay him honor. They gave him a car and said nice things about him. The home town folks cheered and kidded him. The local paper published a special edition in Charley's honor. ned Grange, the fabled "Galloping Ghost" of the Illinois teams of the twenties, praised the kid and wished he were young »gatn. Bui Charley Conerly, quiet, served, shy in the midst of such acclaim, said nothing. The home town folks, the kids especially, honored Charley u »n All-America player, holder of a new National Collegiate passing record. Southeastern Conference passing records, and fireman of the rebels' Delta Bowl-bound steam-rolling team. Conerly, • fromer mortar fun- ner in the Marines, stood In quiet embarrassment while orators polished and embellished the football legends. Ultimately, Conerly hoped to play pro baseball or football. He Is draft property of the Washington Redskins of the National League. Detroit was considering him a* a baseball prospect. He played third base and pitched for the Rebels and Is a powerful hitter. But today, Charley Conerly was the hero here. As one story had It, a small boy stopped a waitress about to wash a cup. "Don't wash that cup!" the small- fry commanded.

The big man from Ncbtnskn— he was an All-Amerlcaii fullback there in 1933—Insists on two tech- nlciiics. "Defense is natural," he holds. "Players have to learn to block. It is hard for most of them. But it pays off on good offensive football, and yon can win many games wltli only n minimum of scoring." That typifies Bauer's coaching methods. Like most of the new generation of coaches, lie doesn't tear into the boys at half-time with pep talks and verbal lashings after defeats. His approach always is eool, pains-tnking and> intelligent. He analyzes opponents' strengths and weakcnesses to his scguad. There is no effort io Inflate the opposition or degrade it. He presents the tnsk at hand in a concise manner, thet sets about arming his charges to perform It, like n general conducting an important campaign.

The oats had been yanked out by the roots, but that wasn't enough. ! A victory over the Tigers, Tulane said, was the only way to right a grave wrong. There was no indication, however, that Tulane had been molding back enough all season to whip the Bayou Bengals. Except for a shocking win over Alabama and a runaway over pool' Auburn, Tulane had suffered mightily all the way. The Greenles tied Florida, of course, but nobody here bragged about that one. Tn the Southland, it was a well- known fact that the thing LSU liked to see best were flying teeth spraying the field from Tula tie brldgework. Y. A. Tittle, LSU'R great quarterback and passing star, hoped to continue his role against Tulane. He hns beeti poison to the Wave for the past two seasons, and If his ankle permits, he promises to be more of the same this week. The Greenies escaped with their lives, barely, in a clash with Notre Dame at South Bend, and appearec hi good physical condition. Morale was high on the campus but onl; so-so ! in the locker room.
