Mustangs Kush Back in Final Seconds to Tie Frogs, 19-19 IWalker Leads As Oscar ’s Hot Shots With the football season over for most of the boys and the Bicarbonate League not quite ready to get under way, this is the time when scribes get together to compare notes and come up with their All- District teams.

Temple .........Rack Jack Brown, Ktni« ................Rack ❖ ❖ ❖ Buddy Wilson of Knnls was balled as one of the greatest ends in the State by officials and scribes who have seen him in action, lie was on the second team last year and displayed remarkable improvement this season. Wilson can also play tackle or anywhere else in the line he is nedeed. College scouts have been watching him closely. John Connell, Temple pass-catching star, was also moved up this season. He has been a fine defensive performer as well as a glue-fingered receiver. ♦ ♦ ♦ Warren Foster and Robo Patton Guard are not far behind Wilson anti ............... Connell. Foster stood out on a team that didn’t get too far in the race. Patton grew better as the season went along and should he a real star before he finishes his career at Waco High next year. RIair Reaman was on the catching end of many Corsicana aerials and proved a good all-around performer. Pardo helped make the Tiger line the loop’s top defensive unit snd was also an adept pass- grabber. ❖ Good tackles were not too plentiful and selecting the best ones was not an easy Job. Conaway, the massive 226-pounder, made the team last year and was better this season. Few rivals were able to move him aside with their assaults at the Hillsboro line. Casner was not a flashy but consistent player, lie is also a big boy, weighing 210 pounds. Casner started slowly but finished strong and didn’t lack much of being as good as Conaway. Marchbanks was a veteran in the Waxahachle forward wall and one of the leaders in helping the Indians make their great record. Bittner, a bruising player on defense, never turned in a bad performance. Tackle .Ciua rd Center .Guard .Tackle .. End .. Rack First Team Needs Five in Baekfield Temple am! Neilson seldom got any credit but were hard tacklers and steady players in tliclr respective lines. Rill Sharpley of Corsicana was also a fine tackle. So were Jim Owens of Waxahachle and Ruck Mayes of Cleburne, who was out of the W aco game because of acholastic difficulties. ♦ ♦ ♦ Carlton Skipper was the outstanding guard In the district from the fir*t game until the last. He spent most of his nights In rival backfields wrecking plays before they could get started. Bill At hey came into hi* own in the final weeks of the season and crowded Skipper for top honors at the end. Bennie Poarch was a terror on defense against Waco although he didn't start the game He gave the same kind of performance in several other contests. Birddog Smith, handicapped with Injuries, overcame them to help make the center of the Waco line hard to crack. ♦ ♦ ♦ Gene Myera, a center on the Cleburne team, deserve« a place on one of the squads so we moved him to guard. He got about half the tackle* bis tram made In most ni their games and plaved consistent ball throughout the season. Ro Simmons was a fine performer on a Temple team. Ervin Phillips of Corsicana was also a great guard. ♦ ♦ ♦ Richard Cummins shades .Tames Fowler for the pivot spot although the Temple star was mentioned several times on the Ail-State check list. Cummins roamed everywhere to bolster ihe Corsicana defense when It began to lag. W’eatherford was only a step or two behind Cummins and Fowler, lie was better than Cummins the night Waxy olayed Corsicana. Pete Darw'in of Waco also did a terrific Job all the way. ❖ ♦ ♦ You have to name five backs on the first team. Neither Claude Kincannon nor Richard Parma can be left off. Kincannon was the backbone of the Wacri team. W ith­ out him the Tiger offense sputtered and came close to not clicking at all on two or three occasions. Ponies Struggle To Unbeaten Year Fighting Toads Near Great Upset By JINX TI C KER Trihiiuc-llcrald Sports Editor On one of the most dramatic and most thrilling comebacks in the history of football In the Southwest, the SMU Mustangs in Fort Worth Saturday afternoon before an overflow crowd of screaming fans became the undisputed champion of the Southwest Conference by tying the inspired TCU Frogs, 19 to 19. The tie is the only blotch on the SMU record for a year. However, with less than three minutes to play, TCU from its own 20 went 80 yards for a touchdown which put it in front of the Mustangs, 19 to 13. When the scare was made there were less than two minutes to play, and there was not an SMU fan in the stand who dared hope for the touchdown that SMU now needed. Wouldn’t Give I p Doak Walker, a most amazing footballer today, however, was not ready to give up. He had accomplished the seeming impossible several times in this game, and took charge of the game again He ran the kickoff back 59 yards to the 36, then took a pass from (Gilbert Johnson on the nine-yard line. FORT WORTH. Nov. 29—II*—Sta- tUtic* of th« TCI'-SMU gum«*: lie led the assault that got Waco over the hill aicainst Ennis when Kincannon was on the bench with injuries. ♦ ♦ ♦ Henry Stollenwerck was the district’s greatest back and one of the best In the State. Many scribes ranked him the finest running back In the Stale. Stollenwerck made the Waxahachle team what it was. He had tremendous power and it always required three or four rivals to bring him down when he got moving. In addition, he was a fine punter and broken field expert. ♦ ♦ ♦ Robhy Dillon was even grrater than Stollenwerck against Waco. He 1» the fastest hack in the loop and has no equal as a hroken- fielil runner. Stollenwerck relies mostly on power. Coach Ted Dawson of Temple said Dillon was being overlooked. We came almost doing It until the Waco-Temple tussle. R o b b y McFarland did everything in the Hillsboro backfield and starred in every game. ❖ ♦ ♦ h. C. Parks was a remarkable all-around player and sparkplug of th** Fnnl* attack. Little Robert Walker scored, more than 70 points for a last-place club. He was a wonder on defense as well. Carl Guess probably belongs on the first team but we had to make room for Dillon. Guess Is the best kicker in the district. His toe beat Waco in the championship battle. Kelly Burkhart, hard-hitting line rammer, was also a flawless goal-kicker. He decided a couple of games for the Tigers with his extra-point conversions. ♦ ♦ ♦ Rill Davis was a shifty runner and constant threat In the Corsicana attack. Eldo Johnson was the Temple Hne-hacker and place- kicker. He could also pasa in great style when called irpon. Gene Saunders Joined Stollenwerck in giving the Waxahachle crew a powerful ground game. He ripped one line after another to bits In lending Stollenwerck some strong support with the offensive chores. Jack Rrown also showed lots of power with his smashes.

He has given the school on the Dallas hilltop its first undefeated team since 1935 when it won from Texas Christian University to go to the Rose Bowl. As was the case in 1935 when Matty Bell turned the trick this year with material that was not the best in the conference. TCU had the better team in 1935, but SMU was the champion. The University of Texas had the best team in the conference this year, but SMU is the champion. Also it is the first championship team that SMU has had since 1935. Rest iu Emergency It Is a team which has been at its best when the emergency was the greatest. Undefeated teams in the Southwest are few and far between. Some of our truly great teams have not been good enough to stav undefeated through a season of play. TCU had a mighty undefeated and untied team in 1938 and Texas A. and M. had the same in 1939. Both of those teams were national champions. Since then we have had a sensational, devastating University of Texas team in 1941, and then a mighty Texas University- team of 1946, 'followed by the Texas team of 1947 which is perhaps the greatest University of Texas team of all time, but none of these great teams were good enough to May undefeated for the season. So now Matty Bell has given the Southwest Conference its first undefeated team since 1939. That is an achievement indeed, even when the material is as great as other mighty teams of this section, but Matty Bell did not have Ihe material to warrant such a record. However, the team did not play what is known as a Tennessee schedule. This SMU team did not have a breather. It had to go on and on. In addition to the six conference games. SMU made two trips to California, playing and defeating Santa Clara in San Francisco, and UCLA in Los Angeles. If went to Oklahoma to win from Oklahoma A. and M., and in Dallas won from Missouri, a team good enough to win from Duke. 28 to 6. UCLA held the Rose Bowl Southern California team to a 6-to-O score. No Easy Games were no breathers for the Mus- ! HP tangs. The Methodists had their | lennessee tomes off days, or days when their play was not up to their top standard, but these days came when the opposition . was not as great as it | was in the crucial games. Crucial conference games for SMU were really those against Rice and Texas. Against those teams, to his everlasting credit, Matty Bell had his team in most sensational form, keyed to a high pitch. As a result, the Methodists made what is really a great Kice team appear weak, Impotent and inadequate. Bell then saved plays to use against Texas, planned for Texas. ’laid’ for Texas, got the jump on Texas with one of Matty’s pet plays, and finally nosed out that team which is perhaps the greatest in the nation for the season of 1947. SMU did not have the kind of material to defeat such a mighty football force as the University of Texas, but it did, thanks to Matty Bell and his able assistants. Me- Adoo Keaton and Rusty Russell. Fired at A. and M. Fourteen years ago Matty Bell was fired as coach of Texas A. and M. because he could not win at a place where he did not have the men. Dana X. Bible, his predecessor, had seen the handwriting on the wall down there, and had moved on. When Bell was fired at A. and M., he caught on as an assistant to Ray Morrison at SMU in 1934. When Morrison left SMU to become head coach at Vanderbilt after the season of 1934, Bell became head coach at SMU, and in his first year as coach there, he gave SMU an undefeated, untied team which was named the No. I team of the nation and invited to the Rose Bowl. Up until this year that was Bell’s greatest coaching achievement. It was a remarkable job, but pales into insignificance to what he has done this year. Matty Bell is THE coach of the year whether he gets that honor or not. He has dope more with less. From Behind To l ake Vanderbilt KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 29- A scrapping Tennessee football team that had been defeated often, simply wouldn’t be beaten today and came from behind to trample Vanderbilt, 12 to 7. A partisan throng of 25,IX)U cheered the Vols to their third straight victory and their fifth of what has been the worst season in 16 years of coaching for Bob Neyland. Tennessee's line, with seven Senior forwards playing their last game for the Vols, spelled the dil- terence between the two highly- keyed elevens. The Vol linemen repeatedly outcharged the Vandy line. Often they spilled Commodore passers before they could hurl the ball. After battling to a stalemate in the first period, Vanderbilt struck first early in the second period. Halfback Bobby Berry faded back for a pass, feinted and sprinted 59 yurcU down the sideline for a touchdown. Zack Clinard, Vandy’s ace kicker, converted. Tennessee came back and marched 62 yards from the kickoff to score. J. B. Proctor sparked the drive, pitching one pass to End Jim Powell for 18 yards and' another to the same wlngman for 11. Proctor then hit Halfback Bob Lund on the goal line for the score. Hal Llttleford's placement was wide. The Vols scored early in the third period, I.ittleford taking the first Commodore punt on his own 37, reversing his field and racing 63 yards down the sideline for the touchdown.

Woodruff Does Good Coaching Job The district race was one of the most exciting in several years. Four teams were In the thick of the championship fight until the last. It took the last games of the season to decide the winner. Against other loops, team of this section had a fine record. Corsicana was undefeated until It had played Waxahachio and had beaten teams from three other circuits. ❖ ❖ ❖ Temple was ruled ineligible before the season started but was one of the State’s top teams and had much to do with deciding the district champion. The Wildcats did not look strong at the start hut ! next year, began to click when they got up against other conference outfits. ❖ ❖ ❖ We’ll probably get lots of mail because we didn't name a Corsicana back on the first team. It was hard to choose between the Tigers. June Clark was great. So was Gerald Bowen, a passer who wasn't listed as a regular. David appeared to have the edge because of his all-around ability. ❖ ❖ Boyd Payne will have loin of material at Corsicana amain neit year, according to Paul Moore, vet although the Buckaroos have a rugged defense. Lufkin is likely to be Corsicana’s opponent in the quarter-final round. The Panthers are among the top four teams in the State right now, and are expected to get into the finals. ❖ ❖ ❖ Although Baylor was beaten In Houston Saturday, It has been a much better season for the Rear*. They won four straight games to start the year and have been rugged rivals for every other conference team. Young Bob Woodruff did a splendid job in his first season. Baylor will bear watching ❖ ♦ ♦ Gene Huebner proved one of the loop’s finest centers. He was not far behind Joe Watson, the Rice marvel, and Cecil Sutphln, the SMU star. Chuck Stone was the best guard we saw play. Buddy Tinsley made a strong bid for all­ conference honors. These boys all return next year so the Baylor defense is likely to be stronger than ever. ♦ ♦ ♦ Rill Duhoae did another remarkable jioh at Waco High. Nobody e«- eran acrlbe of that city.

Walker had a chance to win the game by adding the extra point, nut that seemed to be asking n bit too much. He missed the extra point, it going wide. Walker did everything else, playing the most magnificent game of his glittering career. The TCU team scored tw^ce before SMU was able to tally, and several times early In the third quarter seemed due to salt the game away, being down on the SMU three due largely to a Pony fumble, but SMU got out of that hole, came back to take the lead as the third quarter closed. It looked like a certain 13-12 victory for SMU with three minutes to play, and then seemed a certain 19-to-13 TCU victory with less than two minutes to play. Rest of Season TCU played by far Its best game of the season. It rose to supreme heights, featuring Its line which has been great all season from tackle to tackle. In the baekfield, Lindy Berry was brilliant, and Pete Stout was a powerhouse. It scarcely resembled the TCU team of other days in this season. SMU, on the other hand, proved that it was of championship calibre by the manner In which it came back when ail teemed lost. TCU drove 50 yards for the first touchdown of the game, featured by a long pass from Berry to Bailey on the 13. From that point Pete Stout carried the ball four times, making a first down on the two on tlie third down, and then going over for the score on the next down. A great pass Interception by Browning set up TCU’s second score on the last ploy of the first quarter. He took the ball neat his 25 and raced all the way to the SMU nine. On third down with 10 to go for a touchdown, Berry faked a pass, found an opening and ran to the SMU two. From that point, on fourth down Stout crashed over for the score. Two Threats Stopped Two SMU threats were stopped by TCU in the second quarter, and the half was almost over when Doak Walker took the ball from his own 38, got back to his own 25 to pass, was crowded back there, wheeled away, and ran 75 yards for SMU’s first touchdown. SMU went ahead on the last play of the third quarter after getting out of two deep holes early in the period. SMU went 51 yards for the score, featuring passing and running by Walker. He passed to the 29, ran to the 15, passed to the six, and then on two plays went over for the score that put the Mustangs in front. The game seemed over with TCU back on its 20-yard line, and 20 yards to go on third down with about three minutes remaining to play. Then Berry shot a Tong pass to Bailey and he ran all the way to the SMU 30 and when tackled lateraled to Jackson who ran to the SMU eight. From that point Stout scored what looked like the winning touchdown on a lateral from Berry, (Hves Ponies Title With less than two minutes to play, Walker took the next kickoff on the five and ran to the TCU 36, On third down Walker took Johnson’« pa*s and gut to the nine, and then Johnson passed to llalliday for the score which tied the game with 20 seconds remaining to play. That last touchdown gave the Mustangs the undisputed title.
