Coach Moslev and his assistant Coach Bill Stancll. were guest speakers at the weekly, meeting of the Kiwanis Club in Hotel Noble yesterday noon. Coach Mosley spoke . on the school's present athletic prn- iram nnd reviewed the Chicks' 1950 football schedule. . Coach Mosley staled that one at tlie things needed at the school Is a broader football program to Include a "B" team. A "B" team, he said, would make football available to a lot more boys, thereby helping the varsity. Mor* Would Come Out / "There are a lot of junior htgh boys that don't go out for football In high school because they are too small or know that they wouldn't have a chance of making the varsity team. They say they will wait a year and grow some. But after a year's loafing they no longer want to play football. JL"With a B team we could play •^nailer schools and give these boys a chance to play some football in their sophomore "year. Then by the lime they are juniors and seniors ' they will have had experience and will make a lot better boys for ths varsity." Coach Mosley also cited the need for a third senior coach to tutor the ends. "With an end coach. Coach Stancil could put his full time to working with the guards and tackles, I could work with the backs and the end coach the ends. Then nobody would be standing around doing nothing." In reviewing the Chicks' schedule. Coach Mosley attributed much Df the team's success in its' first fi games to "a wonderful spirit and good hustle." Orer Confidence Could Hurt "We beat Poplar Bluff mainly because we out : hust!ed them and were In better physical condition The team has a fine spirit and Is pulling together this Tear. That's something we didn't have last year," he said. But he pointed out that over confidence may cost the Chicks some o( jg'.e hustle and spirit in their game IRith Jonesboro Friday night unless it Is checked. "We are trying to point out to them what over confidence will do but then the players come downtown and the fans say 'Oh, yoi shouldn't have any trouble with them, they've already lost four 'Your Eyes Are Right, Your Pants Tigkt, Your Left—Today's Navy (Editors Nolr: This h the Mr- ' ond of three fttorlet on modern day) military triJnlnj, telling how the 1950 recruit is t»u|ht, outfitted and housed.)

You'll hear this chant, and a hundred variations of it, on the shore of Lake Michigan these days as the bluejackets march through the sharp autumn air.

The U.S. Naval Training Center Is making them ready lor active duty with the nation's expanding :lcet. just as it trained more than 1,000,000 young men in World War II.

"The average age of these boys Is 18," says Cnpt. Kelvin L. Nutting, who heads the recruit training command. "We give them the same fundamental training regardless of their future assignments. From here they will go on to service schools or direct to the fleet. . . "Here we help a boy adjust to living In a gorup. . . . teach him the fundamentals of Navy Hfi and of democracy. . . .

Hershey Has N'o Policy-Milking Authority • When you get over to Selective Service headquarters the brew begins to thicken, II that's possible. Draft Director General Hershey Is raging at the Pentagon policies and vocally airing his theories on policies. The weird part of this Is the fact that, he Is not supposed to have anything to do with policy. And he Is the man in the whole city who has had more experience with manpower problems than anyone else, as.draft director for two wars. He's Just supposed to be an operating official, furnishing men at the orders of the Munitions Board. Then on Capitol Hill you get the climax of the whole sad story. Aggressive Carl Vinson (D., Ga.). chairman ol the House Armed Services Committee, has let It be known in no uncertain terms that it i.s he and his committee who will make manpower policies as soon as Congress reconvenes. The one solid fact in the whole jumbled picture is that, although the services may be short of men there's policy. no scarcity of manpower The u. S.

Hot Rumors Open Baseball's 'Hot Stove League' Session By JACK HANn NEW YORK, CK-l. 12. W>»—Where Is Branch Rickey going? Is Connie Mack going to step do\vn as manager of the Philadelphia A's? Will Rogers Hornsby be the new A's skipper? These nre a few of the hot qucs- won a pennant with the tlons that keep -•-•••• boiling the baseball pol these post-world during scries ba.vs. Best information available at the moment is that Rickey will wind up In Pittsburgh with his old friend. John Qalbreath. That's the way the wind is Wowing inside the Dodger front office. Rickey still Is president and general manager of the Dodgers although he has contracted to sell Ills 25 |>er cent Interest In the club. Insiders believe that William Zeckcndorf, who arranged to buy Rickey's stock, never wil be able to go through with the deal. Instead it Is expected that Walter O'MaHcy, with sound financial backing, will be able to exercise his option to buy the Rickey stock. Thtil would leave Ihe 75 pur cent. including the holdings ol O'Malley and the John Smith estate In one block. - Jiamcy Awaits Worr) Nothing Is set on the Pittsburgh front where General Manager Roy Karncy is waiting definite word on the Rickey situation before he makes a move on strengthening the club. Hamey still lias a year to go on his contract. There also nre reports that Hickey is bound from St. Louis to opernte the Browns with the backing of the American League. President Will Harridge of the American League denied any such backing had been arranged. In Philadelphia, the reign of 87- year-o!rt Mr. Mack as manager seems to be near the end. The story circulated at the world scries was that Mack would devote himself to executive work next year, leaving the managing Job to a younger man. Still Mr. Mack said repet- cdly he'd never resign. It is known that three men were being considered for the Job, One was Paul Richards, who signer! Monday to manage the Chicago White Sox. Ilaker Considered The others are Del Baker. San Diego manager, and Hornsby, who „ Yankee farm club at Bcamnont in </i Texas League, Hornsby still Is Beaumont manager. But If he has the chance to take the Job with the A's he will have no difficulty getting loose from the Vankee chain.' Then there Is the case of Lou Boudreau, the Cleveland manager. There Is talk that the Athletics might make a deal with the tribe for player-manager Boudreau. Lou still can jilay part time at short or third base. But the matter of Boudreau'ft contract, a good-sized chunk of dough, might discourage the A's who had a miserable season at the gate. Cleveland has yet to announce Boudrcau's status for 1051. So that's the pitch for the rurn'or factory today. Something may pop before November 1. So many Dodger executives arc waiting to see which way to Jump that Rickey must announce his decision soon 1949 Champ Wins Legion Tourney LOS ANGELES. Oct. 12.
