For the first- time in many years, the' Arkansas menu doesn't include a iiame booked as a "breather". On successive Saturdays following the Oklahoma Aggie contest, the Razorbacks will take on Houston, a coming power in the Missouri Valley Conference; Texas Christian; Baylor; Texas; Mississippi; Texas A. & M.; Rice; Southern Methodist and Tiilsa. To meet this row of toughies, the , Raiorbacke have 13 lettermeii, a! sprinkling of other experienced holdovers and some highly regarded sophomores and transfers. rt;ickfield Is Pride The pride of Ihe .squad is a deep aiid talented backfield corps called the best in the Southwest Conference. What appears to be the likely No. 1 set of backs te made up of Lamar M^IIan, all alt-conference do-everythlng quarterback; Halfbacks Buddy Sutton and Jack Trox- ell'and Fullback Lewis Carpenter. Only at. center are the Porkers without lettermen, and filling that ,11101 adequately is Douglas' chief JMroblem. " The head coach hopes to start scrimmages tomorrow.
