FAG* TWO_______________________________WACO (TEXAS) SUNDAY TRIFUNE-HERAT/D, OCTOBER B. 1947: ----------------------- _........... ------------------------------.............. —" , ■ ........ - ■ -------- ■ r—. 11'———' .. -=31« 44-Yard Pass Play Gives Hogs 6-to-0 Triumph Over Toads Jinx’s Hot Shots piavs tne university of Arkansas in a conference game at. Muny Stadium Saturday afternoon, starting at 2:30. ♦ ♦ ♦ It nlll be Baylor’« first contest In two wrrkt. Baylor won only on«* game all of last **-ai»oii. yet Urn jnar ha* pla>e<l two ono ha* won two. It I* drftnitrly an Improved team, although it will have to he the underdog in the game Saturday, became Arkansas is the co- ehampion of the conference, and has a veteran team thiH year. It is due to he a better Arkansas team than last yitr. ❖ ♦ ♦ The game therefore Is an early- season natural. Baylor is coached by Bob Woodruff, a Tennessee product, but he is not using Tennessee’s style of play. John Barn- hiU is the coach of the Arkansas team. He is a Tennessee product, and uses Tennessee’s style of play. ❖ Since It 1» very difficult to jam as many a* 20.000 into Muny Stadium here, you would normally think the Arkansas-Baylor game is a sellout. Considering all of the angles, and considering how attractive the game is, you would think that the game became a sellout immediately after Baylor went to Florida, and before 32,000 fans upset a Miami University t«*am which last year lost only two games. ♦ 4 « Such, however, Is not the case. There has never been a sellout for an Arkansas-Bavlor game in this city, and it is not a sellout this year. In years gone by, Baylor has tried playing this game on a neutral gridiron to attract the fans, playing the contest one year in Texarkana, but it did not work. Arkansas is just one of two conference teams that do not draw here. The other is Rice. Perhaps It can be explained by the fact that Rice and Arkansas have few' alumni in this section. However, the Rice problem was solved after the contest of 1934 by playing all of the Rice-Bavlor games* in Houston. Down there they sell enough sea- son tickets annually to assure Baylor a fine guarantee. ♦ ♦ ♦ Many of the Waco and Baylor fans would like to see Baylor and Rice play on a home-and-home basis. We also would like for Baylor to play the K**me here every other year. Coach Boh Woodruff asi» wants Baylor to have the home advantage when it is Baylor’s time to have that advantage. ❖ ❖ However, we would not want the game here at a big financial loss to Baylor, and until the fans of this section see fit to fill the stands for other conference games played here, they can ill afford to ask Baylor to make the change. If the stands are not filled when Baylor plays Arkansas, as attractive as that game is, then it has to be admitted that the fans will be in no position to ask for a change in the arrangement writh Rice. 4* ♦ ♦ There are choico seats left at this time for the Arkansas-Baylor game, and only a few more than 1,000 have been sold, other than season tickets. The game is the most important in the Southwest for the week. ♦ ❖ <• There has been much talk of the need of a new stadium for Baylor, and there will be times when a larger stadium is needed, but so far Baylor has not had to turn away fans at grid games, although last year there was a sellout for the game between the Aggies and the Bears. That was the homecoming game^ I nder the present circumstances, however, there is no doubt but that a new stadium would be a poor investment. A new stadium of the kind of quality desired would cost around $1,000,000. Talk of a stadium of that type is ill advised at this time when fans are not Interested enough to fill the present stadium, save on two occasions every other year, and that. of course, is when Texas and Texas A. and M. play here. Arkansas Given Scarc by Aerial Assault of TCU FOOTBALL by PAUL TYSON Toss Dropped in End Zone to Stop Threat FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Oct. 4 AP—A 44-yard pass play gave the University of Arkansas Razorbacks a first-quarter lead and from there on they relied on a stubborn goal-line defense to subdue Texas Christian University, 6 to 0, here Saturday In the opening game of the Southwest Conference football race. At the beginning It looked as though the Razorbacks, defending co-champions, w’ould run the Horned Frogs out of the stadium. Later TCU Kept about 16,000 onlookers on the edges of their seats with a fourth-period aerial bombardment. Hogs Go 78 Yards Arkansas went 79 yards on five plays for the afternoon’s only touchdown, with Clyde (Smackover) Scott and Aubrey Fowler, fleet backs, leading the way. The march began after TCU’s Carl Knox punted out of bounds on the Razorback 21-ya. i line. A tie football game played In a baseball park in Waco one chilly Fall afternoon in 1915 brought together a group of boys who later were to etch deeply their names and deeds on the scroll of football lame. The teams were Waco and North Fort Worth High Schools. The score was 7 to rrK“ rhe game was Fayetteville, Ark., Oct. 4— UP — Statistici» of the Arkaa»as-TCU football game: Bi" eek for ^ aco Pisskin Fans It is going to be a big week end In Waco for the grid fans.

He was in his 60s at the time of his death in Shreve- I 1938. ♦ ♦ ♦ The Prison Rodeo will get under way at Huntsville this afternoon, and will be continued each Sunday afternoon during October. ♦ ♦ ❖ The Booker T. Washington colored team of Dallas won a game last week, although it was behind, « to 0 when it ended. It was playing Oklahoma City High, and the Oklahoma C^ity team was leading, 8 to 0. When the Oklahoma City team was penalized for roughing, it walked off the field, forfeiting to the Dallas team. That happened in the third period. ♦ ♦ ♦ Ths North and the South will meet in a baseball game at Katy Park Thursday night. This is an annual colored game. Stars of the National Negro League will play the stars of tne various colored teams of the South, such eu? the New Orleans Creoles, the Birmingham Black Barons and the Memphis Red Sox. Harry W’illiams, manager of the New' Orleans team, is manager of tht- South team. Biz Mackey, manager of the Newark Eagles, 1946 champions, Is managing the North team. ♦ ♦ ♦ The Brown w ood team was a hit disappointing last week in being played to a scoreless tie by weak Fort Worth Poly. The BrowTiwood team now' looms as the No. 3 team of the No. 9 District, and it appears that Mineral Wells and tne Breckenridge team will battle for the title with the Breckenridge team favored to win. ♦ ♦ ♦ Assault Is lame again, and will not race again this vear, but there is hope that he will race again next year. That was interesting news, because sometime ago it was announced that he would be retired at the end of this year. ♦ ♦ ♦ The merchandise shoot, being put on by the Waco Skeet Club at the club’s range at Blackland, is going to be concluded this afternoon. Firing will start at 8 this morning in all classes. Shooter* are here from Dallas, Brovvnwood. Austin, Hillsboro and Jacksonville. Grant Dseng and D. L. Braun are competing. They happen to be two of the best in the world. Over 5800 in merchandise is being given as prises. Scott drove through tackle for 11. Two more running plays lost five, but Fowler faked a punt and raced 27 yards to the TCU 46. TCU was penalized five yards. Scott whipped a pass to Melvin McGaha near the sideline, on the Frog 30, and the deer-footed end outran the TCU secondary to the goal. Fowler's placement for point was low. Pass Dropped Behind Goal Each team threatened four times in the last three quarters. Fumbles halted Arkansas short of pay dirt, once on the TCU tw-o, ana interception put out the Frogs’ fire. TCU’* best opportunity fizzled w’hen Co-Captain Tom Bishop dropped Joslin’s 14-yard pass in the end zone in the fourth period. He was all by himself and had the ball in his arms, but apparently was too anxious and let it slip away. Lineups and Summary POS .........LE........... .........LT.......... .........L G........... ........ C........ ........RG.......... .........RT........... played in Katy Park. The Waco star was Ben Lee Boynton. He sparked the Waco team that year to an undefeatea though twice - tied season during which It scored an average of 60 points a game. Boynton was plenty good, but he was even better in college than in high school. Boynton went to Williams College, where he quickly developed into a polished player of such outstanding ability that in 1919 and 1920 he made virtually every All- American • team, and was later chosen on an all-time All-American team along with Jim Thorpe, George Gipp and other grid immortals. He is still remembered as William College’s greatest football player of all time. At that time Williams was a footbal power to be reckoned with in the East, where the best teams were developed. Boynton led W’illiams in an amazing 25-0 defeat of Columbia, and against Hamilton College he made the second longest touchdown run in the books—110 yards. Boynton now. of course, is an outstanding football official and authority on the game. On the North Fort Worth team that, afternoon was one Madison Bell and playing against him on the Waco team was one Leo R. Meyer. Nobody has to be told twice that today Matty Bell of SMU and Dutch Meyer of TCU are among the leading football coaches in the business, and the annual renewal of the rivalry between their teams is one of the most famous traditional games. Two other players for North Fori W’orth that day were outstanding. They were Red Weaver, later an All - American at famous little Centre College, and Bo McMillin, who also starred at Centre, making All-American at quarterback. McMillin now' is head coach at the University of Indiana, where he has won the Big Ten crown more than once. In no other Texas high school game that I can remember have so manv men of proven football genius participated. Star Stays Home To Be Ineligible George Graham, All-State fullback for San Angelo in 1943 and 1944. has found the competition a bit too keen at the University of Texas, and Blondv Cross tells us that he withdrew from Texas last week to enter San Angelo Junior College w here a number of his former teammate* are playing. Graham is a fine back, nut made a mistake in entering Texas, w'here there are too many better than Graham. However, sad to state from San Angelo Junior College’s point of view\ Graham will not be eligible to play with that team. Blondy Cross telVs us that Graham played one minute this seaso-n w*ith Texas a Sophomore against Texas Tech. Under Junior College Conference rules that made Graham Ineligible to compete in Junior College Conference circles Graham therefore is enrolled at San Angelo Junior College strictly for educational purposes, no football—this vear or any year. ♦ ♦ ♦ TTie Fniversity of Oklahoma and the University of Texas met in football for the first time in 1900. T^tey have met most of the years since then. It was a long time before Oklahoma won a game from Texaa, but all of a sudden it started giving the Ivonghoms all sorts of trouble. Texas won in 1900. 28 to 2. and then won 12 to 6, II to 0, 22 to 6. II to 5, and In 1904 got only a 6-to-8 tie. ♦ ♦ ♦ Oklahoma won Its first game from Texas in 1905. the score being 2 to 0, but Texas won an even closer one in 1906, 10 to 9. In 1907 the Longhorns won, 29 to 10. but the Sooners turned on Texas in 1908 to win by the overwhelming margin of 50 to 0 ♦ ♦ ♦ Texas came right back In 1909, and popped it to Oklahoma, 80 to 0, but in 1910, Oklahoma w’on, 8 to 0, and made it 6 to 8 In 1911. Oklahoma made it three in a row In 1912, 21 to 6. Then Texas won 18. Tesa* w on In 1916. 21-7, and the Sooners got revenge in 1917, 11-0. ♦ ♦ ♦ They did not play in 1918, but in 1919, Oklahoma won, 12-7. Oklahoma lost to Texas in 1922, 32 to 7. The teams did not play in 1920 and 1921. The strong 1923 Texas team won from Oklahoma, 26 to 14, and then they auit playing until 1929, but have piavea each vear since, and since 1929 Texas has had a wide margin. It won in 1929, 21-0, then won 17-7, 3-0, and 17-10, before Oklahoma won in 1933, 9-0. Texas then came back to win for three more years in a row by scores of 19-Ô, 12-7 and 6-0. The two teams tied in 1937, 7-7, and in 1938 Oklahoma won. 13 to 0. Oklahoma also won in 1939, 24 to 12, but in 1940 Texas won. 19 to 16. Texas’ 1941 was in high gear when it played Oklahoma, and It won 40 to 7. The next year, the Longhorns won, 7 to 0,‘ and in 1943, it was 13 to 7, and in 1944 it was 20 to 0. Texas barely w’on in 1945, 12 to 7, and last year the Sooners surprised in holding Texas to a score of 20 to 13. Texas has now' won seven games in a row from Oklahoma and is due to make it eight in a row at the Cotton Bowi Saturday. ♦ ♦ ♦ The St. tenuis ('ardiñal* are going to have a tryout camp at C oleman, Oct. 16, 17 and 18.

Y., Blaik Cheek Shows Golf Scores Improved During Long Days By CHARLFS BARRETT Trlbune-llerald Staff This is the time of year that golfers begin to slow up on the number of times they visit the courses. Why, no one knows, except the days are shorter and will not allow a full 18 holes after working hours. So, Saturday afternoon a checkup was made to see how much improvement. if any, was made this year in the game of players as they finished up a round at Lake Waco Course. The players contacted shot from 67 to 98 and would make a good average of the players in Waco. It will have to be considered, however, that most players improve their came a few strokes during the Summer months because they play more often. In other words each year they start out shooting higher than they shot in the Fall. Downs Posts 67 T. L. Downs came in Saturday with 35-32—67. He said his average game is about the same because he plays golf every chance he gets. Orville Creasey shot 38-32— 70 and has improved about 3 strokes this year. Creasey plays about twice a w’eek. Leonard Bateman nad 36-33—69. He said a little over or under nar has been his game all year. Jake Wilson could not putt but shot 39-34—73. He plays once a week and said he is getting worse instead of better. Burl McClendon has improved from around 95 to 42-39—81. Jack Womack shot 46-44—90, Jim Davis, a little off his usual game, had 47-38—85 and Bill McDavid 43-45— 88, all play about once a week and see no improvement this year. Dr. E. B. Fine Better Dr. E. B. Fine is probably one of the most improved golfers in Waco. He started out this year around 85 and Saturday shot 39-32 —71. He seems to have a natural swing and really enjoys the game. Dr. C. H. Reese has lowered his score a few' strokes this year, as has Sam Jones. Reese shot 42-36— 78 and Jones 41-38—79.
