Longhorn Record Is Mental Hazard For Crimson Tide, Sugar Bowl Foe By Chart** Nelhawaj United Prtu Sport, Writer NEW ORLEANS. Dec. 17. (UP) — The latest bugle blast from Austin, home ol the Sugar Bowling Texas Loiighonis. added up today to a new mental hazard for Alabama. The Crimson Tide's Job i* to whip Texas In New Orleans on New YCRI'S Day. It Isn't going to De easy. The records showed tlmt only 1 three out of 21 intersections! rivals had been able to bulldog the Steer In the past nine seasons. ..The Austin advertisers pointed with pride to > mountain of 193 Texas points, against a scrawny 117 lor the outsiders. It was Duna X. Bible, now Texas' athletic director, who lilted the ! Umghoin off its aching back In I93T. Two seasons Inter he started bumping all opposition. He sent the Steers against major colleges from the Southeastern, Southern, Big Nine. Big Six, Rocky Mountain and Pacific Const leagues. The only Interactional losses In the next nine season* were to Ok- lahoma In 1939, Northwestern In H92, and Oklahoma A. and M. In 1944. , Texai Foe* Know , For first-hand Information about Texan from Southeastern teams, Alabama wa* referred to Louisiana Sliite, Georgia Tech and Florida. The report from Austin didn't mention it, but the fullest treatment glveji any Interactional opponent during the nine-year stretclj went to hapless Oregon In 1941, though the steers actually beat, Colorado worse in 1940. Oregon'* boys didn't know It, but they web-footed It halfway across the nation to play a Texas team that was sizzling mad. Texas wasn't miffed at n,e boys from the Bhushone country. The Longhorn* were mad at tlienuelvra /or having booted »w«y whut might have been one of the greatest records for a single season in modern grid hUtoty, It was the J'e«r of Pete Laydeii, Jack Ci'siu and Co. Texas slaughtered everybody until it met an ordinary Texas Christian team. TCU won, 14 to 7, and on Hie following Saturday *. still-stunned Tcxns learn was tied by Baylor, 7 to 7. For ipile, •verybody llgnred, Texas teed oif on Oregon in the season's finale. The score was 71 to 7. . Everybody on the Texas bench scored except a wuterboy. who had * bad ankle and * trace of bucket- wrist that day. Over the nine-season span, Texas also disposed of Georgia Teen, It lo 1, and Missouri, to to 27, In Cotton Bowl fiiuncs. PAGB SEVENTEEN pass defense lapses in the backfiekl don't put the Engineers loo iniic in the hole. Dodd Unsatisfied In Spite of Tech's Successful Year ATLANTA, Oa.. Dec. 17. (UP)— Georgia Tech has Just finished Its . finest football season since 1928, •u year of its unbeaten Golden - olriado, but Coach Bobby Dodd still ' isn't satisfied. He wishes his boys could have operated mt full strength all season. Dodd believes that Tech could have edged by Alabama, the only team holding a decision over the Engineers, and scored more decisive triumphs over such stubborn foes as Duke and Navy except for a string of injuries' that would have wrecked many outfit:. On New Year'* Day, in the Orange Bowl at Miami, Tech expects to oe operating very close to peak strength again for the first time since its second game of the season. If the engineers go against Kansas as Dodd believes they are really capable of going, he may be Justified in comparing them with the 1928 outfit that rampaged through verylhing including California in the Rose Bowl, with incidental help fro mwrong-way Boy Riegels. Tech goes to work on an opponent behind a huge but mobile line that has been' able to whip down any enemy forewall, provided the Dance Nightly In The Chick Room Say, fellas, here's your chance to really set the rang together.

VI JEFF yelled "Cut" and the cam** era quit trucking and there was a stir of movement. A man ran to the front of the stage and held up some color cards to tert the take. Jeff watched the man with the cards and 'her nodded his head. "That's it," he announced. "Okay. Take time out for lunch now." He looked at his wrist watch. "And be back here at 1 sharp. All o( you." The scene dissolved in motion. Avis flounced off the stage followed closely by Art. Madge Narney disappeared. The dead man got up off the floor. 1 stared at him and my jaw dropped. The dead man was L-iz Leyden. Jeft turned around and saw me. "Hi," he said. "I didn't know you were here." "I came in a little while ago." Liz Leyden finished brushing himself off. He came toward us with his big heavy head swaying a little as he walked, and his fishy gray eyes looking enormous back «< hit thick glasse*. H« passed OUT OUR WAY By J. R. Williams without speaking, or even nodding. "1 didn't know he was an actor, too,*' I said, staring alter my unpleasant collaborator. "Leyden?" Jeff asked. "He Isn't. But he always insists upon playing a bit part in every play he helps to write." Well, the dead man in my story was certainly a t>i' part. "Have lunch with me," JcIT suggested. I accepted. • • • 'J'HE studio cafeteria always fascinates me with its flamboyant crowd of actors. That day more than usual. It happened that Avis Vaughn. Art Cleves and Jimmy Pclers had (he (able next but one to ours. Avis was preening herself under the attention ol the two men, Art looked «mus »nd Jimmy was openly sulking. In the middle of their men) Avis said something to Jimmy and Arl laughed. A lot too loudly. Jimmy got up so abruptly that his chair fell over backward. He left without bothering to pick it up. 1 remembered what Jefl had hinted about the possibilities for trouble in that trio and I looked at JeH quickly to get his reaction. He was concentrating on his food, making a deliberate effort to ignore the incident "Aren't you hungry?" he asked me. My mind and my eye; came back to the food on my plate. "Yes," I said. I was. JelT ate as if he were going to a fire. He finished and made apologetic noises. "You don't mind if I go ahead, do you? Thcrc'rc some changes I want to make in the -stage directions for the next scene." "No, 1 don't mind." He smiled at me and got up. I saw him nodding and smiling at people ai: the way across the dining room. Everybody seemed to know him. Everybody seemed (more than eager to speak to him i It wasn't quite 1 o'clock when 1 finished eating, so I wandered j over to my office in the writers' i building instead of going back to | the set. But I was sorrr 1 had . the moment 1 opened tht door. Liz Leyden wat there. • » • JJE looked at me through his glasses in his oddly impersonal insulting way. and he said in th<unaccented unvarying tone ot voice which he usually employed. "It slinks!" "What does?" I aFked shortly. "The dialogue in that scene. It's as dead as the guy on th« floor." tie was talking, of course, about the scene Ihey had taken that morning. The finding of the body was an effective chapter in my booh and I had insisted upon lifting the dialogue intact—without any c.iangcs—into the script. Leyden had wanted to insert some cynical wisecracks, and he was still burning about it. "Morgan okayed it." I snapped. "And Jeff. If they are satiifled, I don't think I'll worry about your opinion." The sound th,it Liz made was vulgarly derisive. "Morgan doesn't know tripe when he sees it. ... As for Haverson, he'd okay anything you wrote now, because he's sweet on you. Wait until he starts to get tired. You'll find out then how much he thinks of your writing." I felt my face going white. "You're Ihe lowest thing t ever met. Why don't you craw] back under your slone?" 1 had > little trouble keeping my voice level. He slcod up behind his desk. He stretched to his full height- all of fu-e feet three—and somehow at that he seemed to tower above me. He was swollen like a snake wilh venom. "All right. Wail and sec. He's already married, you know that, don't you? Or are you that dumb? Avis Vaughn gol her books into lum five years ago and she's never going to let go." My face showed what 1 felt I'm no actress. Liz had his revenge all right. (To Be Continued) I KMOW, 8U7 .. . t . ONE BIT OF KMTTA' EX- ( FOSEC) SOUR KNUC «.!_£«• WILL FIND R-^ND I'LL HAVE 70 EVEN VEAgg. TOO SOOM Our Boarding House with Maj.
