We were talking with Coach Otis Douglas about his personnel and asked him to name his lineup based on spring practice showings and leaving himself room to make changes before {he Porkers play Okla- AMERICAN LEAGUE homa A. and M. here Sept. 23. i w L He started with his defensive ' Detroit . 69 38 lineup, and the first four men he •• Cleveland B9 44 listed were sophs—halfbacks John- Ncw Yorlt ny Cole and Billy McFarland nnd outside linebackers Bob Cross and Buddy Sutton. "You don't have much experience there, coach." "No," he encountered, "but those boys have speed and it takes plenty of speed to play on the Una of scrimmage, us the linebackers Jo, or Just a few yards back, as the. halfbacks do, and still cover on passes." Veterans Louie Schaufele and Bob Orllfta are slated to do most of the Inside linebiicking (there are four linebackers in the Douglas defense), but Jimmy Smith and Lewis Carpenter will jet their share of it; too. Veterans at Entls Seasoned hands also are down for defensive end duty—Frank Fischel and Pat Summerall, and the tackles now seem likely to come from among three lettermen, Fred Williams, Dave Banner and Travis Simpson, and soph Tom Stringer. In this defensive setup borrow«d from the Philadelphia Eagles, that leaves one spot in the middle of the line to be filled, and almost certainly it will go to Buddy Brown, rugged defensive guard of last yesr. There won't be a sopliomore in the starting offensive lineup unless Larry Hogue can sneak in as 'he quarterback or carpenter as the fullback. The quarterbacking assignment may be between Hogue and Junior lettermin Don Logue, and that's going to be plenty confusing for the broadcasters.- Carpenter will give letterman Joe Baldridge competition at full. Halfback starters will be expe rienced. It looks lite Sammy Furo >t right and either Ray Parks or Buddy Rogers at left. In the line Jack Richards—1913 letter winner returning after dropping out last season—and Marvin .565 .532 .604 .448 .416 .336 Pel. .548 .532 .523 .444 .430 ,358 Paragould Nine Gets District Title Dr. Pepp«r Team Defeats Hudson by 9-2 Count in Finals The Dr. Pepper Bottlers of Paragould reign today as Softball champions of the district after their decisive 9-2 victory last night over Burnett Hudson's Pacemakers in the finals of the district tournament at Paragould.

Schultz had picked up on waivers from Memphis. However. Nashville's hurling stalf In the early stages seemed to lack anyone who could last nine innings so Schultz stayed on doing relief roles and getting an occasional starling bid.
