PAGE SEC 1 pxpect Christman To Shine • Air Will Be FuU Of Footballs When K- State IV^eets Tigers Saturday; Hard Test for K. U. at Norman BY LEO BRANHAM 1 Kansas City, Oct. 19. (AP)—Mls- \i sourl's Paul Christman, ^jured : pitching arm and left 1^ healed. Is expected to pick up where he left off against Washington; and toss passes galore when Kansas State Invades "Ol" Mlzzou" Saturday. It will be the opening conference contest for both teams. Of 24 igames played between the two schools previously, Missouri has won nine, Kansas State 11 and four were tied. : Tigers S?ek Bevenge Missouri, determined on revenge ' for a 13 to 21 defeat last year, Is . weU fortified. The Tigers, flnaUy • free of a hospital list, wiU be able to throw the full weight of Its potent attack against the visitors. Bat the ' Wildcats; despite the loss of Big Elmer Hackney Iniured all-conference fullback and famed "one man gang" line plunger, can be expected • to give an excellent account of them'*: selves. Christman played only a part of " the game but .contributed to a Tiger • victory bver Washington last week by gaining 200 ytoOs, of which 118 resulted from ten strikes out of IJB attempted flips. - None was Interr cepted. " • • Although bottled iip by Ohio State, . I^Iissburi's only conqueror to date, - Christman has completed 55 of 47 .passes for 303 yards In three games. His total yardage is 473. • j; Air Game Expected V Practice this week indicated both V teams would stress .aerial tactics. , The latest Kansas State rehearsal was not particularljr encouraging, however. The reserves, with Lewis Turner and Ted Garrett imitating the ','Christman to Starmer" combination, pushed back the varsity / numerous times via the alrlanes. Although they haven't defeated Kansas at Norman since 1933, Oka- homa "5 powerful Sooners expect little trouble with the Jayhawkers. It , will be the first defense of the 1938 'title for the Sooners, whose goal ;^ was uncrossed by Big Six rivals last ! ^ season. 3 Bunsen Recupef »ting I The Sooners polished up their goal line punch and reviewed pass defense yest«rday. At Kansas, special attention was given fullback Bill Bunsen, roundUig into shape after an hijiiiy three weeks ago. Nebraska and Iowa State seek to uphold mounting Big Six prestige • outside the family circle, Baylor, • i undefeated Southwest conference I leader, invading Nebraska, and Iowa instate going to Drake. Big Sixers ^have won ten, lost three and tied , two in non-conference competition. : ' The Comhuskers' latest drill was devoted entirely to passing. The Cjclones stuck to ground offense, - , indicating they would rely largely on sheer power to knock over their _ Iowa foe. The varsity Iboked good, , pushing freshmen lineups back at f -wilL AL SIMMONS RELEASED Cincinnati, Oct. 19.

The Iron Maiden Of the Courthouse (Continued From Page One ) gist, was plying his brush deftly over Emily's iron cheeks this inornlng. "This is the second beauty treatr ment that Emily's had this year," he said. "I painted her last spring, but she.had to^have a major operation when they put in a new concrete base and walk around her, and a lot of rusty water got all over the pedestal. "I always try to do a good' job on Emily—I think she appreciates it— but sometimes after she gets her annual working over, practical jokers doll her up with lipstick and rouge to make her look like a painted hussy. "Now that ain't right—you can see by those long skirts that Emily isn't one o£ your modem"gals. She's just the cool Grecian type, and she never has a word to say." One story Ls that Emily was erected yeans ago as a memorial to Prances Willard, the great woman leader of the temperance movement in the United States. No plaque or inscription can be found on the statue or pedestal to identify it or lend credence to the belief, and the only mark, beside the date, 1906, on the pedestal, is a large letter "Y;" whose meaning or significance is unknown. There is another legend about Emily which is sometimes whispered about among the courthouse employees. It is said that if the Democrats ever fill every office in the Alien coapty courthouse, Emily will tos.s her pitcher in the air, come down off the pedestal, and dance the Big Apple.

(AP)—The East and the Midwest, two sections that ilready have given football its outstanding dropkickets, are threatening' to produce artists like Harvard's Charley Brickley, IllinoLs' Frosty Peters arid Colorado College's Dutch Clark, who may re-introduce a play almost as extinct as "East Lynne." The dropkick. largely because it's slower than a placement and partly because dropkickers • must be born and not made, has faded from the football scene in recent years, but ^ survey today shows that it's not quite so extinct as the dodo bird. Apparently the game's best exponent of the art is Nile Kinnick, Verdict: 3 to 2 for Alabama by a whisker. . . . Our only advice is to park your hardware at the gate. Today's Gue^t Star Nixson C.

(AP)—Tip to coaches teams play Tulane this year: Don't try to score through that green wave line. Ii} the past 10 games the wave has played (seven last year and Auburn, Clemson and Fordham this year) not a single foe has been able to score a touchdov.n through the line. Reason? The line averages 205 pounds and - is plenty fast. All Quiet- (Continned Ft«m Page One) forces and that early fYencli gains been slight. i Contact Lost Those have been wiped out by voluntary French withdrawals, and, the Germans said, front-line contact had been lost at numerous points by failm*e of German j forces to pursue the French across the frontier. British troops until now "have been nowhere in evidence" in the front lines, the commuunque said. •nie JYench reported "very rainy weather," a potent new factor in western front fighting. But weather did not hamper activity on the diplomatic front wliich extends throughout Europe. Claim an Edge The Turkish pact with Britain and Prance led the -Allies to claim an edge over Germany in Jiie diplomatic struggle accompanying their war on land and sea. Russia continued, however, to solidify her dominant position in the Baltic with a new trade pact with Latvia and the advance of fiu-ther Russian troops to newly- granted bases in Estonia. Moscow's negotiations with; Finland remained in abeyance during the Stockholm conference of | Den­ mark, Sweden, Norway and Finland to demonstrate their unified neutrality. :. Kings Grateful The president of Finland and the kings of Sweden, Norway and Denmark, jconcluding thel?, two-day conference in Stockholm, expressed gratitude to Presidient Roosevelt and the Latin American statai for diplo-- matic .support in northern Europe's cri;iis resulting from ^oviet Russian expansion. President Kallio' of Finland expressed hope that Russia would not press demands on his country which would be Inacceptable. Helsinki observers saw a hint of a Soviet demand'. for a Finnish- Russian mutiial ai:isistance pact in the message which presidejnt Mikhail Kalinin sent .Pre-si^ent Roosevelt in to the An/erican I appeal for continued peace. Kalinin said the ^loscow negiotia- tions were solely for '-guaranteeing the security of the Soviet Union and Fmland." A PKETTY PENNY Waterloo. la.. Ocit. 19.
