By CARL HELL • LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Dec. 11 (AP) - The football coaching vacancy at the University of Ark^as and Paul jBc-ai-) Bryant, now grid chief at Kentucky, appeal! do'erto gelh- THURSDAY, DEC. 11, 1952 A committee of Influential Arkansas boosters screening possible successors to the resigned Otis Douglas scheduled some ndrttlfon- al Interviews. However, the group was believed to be merely mnrklng time until Brynnt gives n stronger Indication that he'll lake the Job It It's officially offered to him. The comroitlee and the Kentucky mentor, who is n native of Fonlyce, Ark., spent three hours conferring behind closed doors nt n Little Rock hofel insl night. Bryant was smiling broadly as he left the room tuid willingly posed with committee members for photographers. He said he had nothing to say regarding the interview. • . ' Herbert Thomas, crmlrmnn of Hie committee, told newsmen tnere was little likelihood that his group would puss a recommendation along to the Board of Trus•tees Immediately. He added: No Offers "No offers were' mnrje, accepted er rejected lonlght.' We . explained * our situation to Bryant. He ex plained his situation to ns and Hiked questions about our athletic facilities, practices and rrmlerlal . Bryant pointed out that he sttl has a Ions-term contract at Ken> lucky and that Ills relationship there was a happy one. He plans to visit his mother nt Tordyce while he's'ln Arkansas nnd we hope to see him ngaln before he leaves," - Thnmas said the committee plan ned to talk today with four Arkansas men who have been mentioned in connection with the position. They are Jimmy Karnm, n Little Rock clothier who formerly coached at Little Ror.k .Junior College; Forrest (Frosty) England who has taken Arkansas state a •Jonesboro to three minor bowls In two years; Elmer Smith, Southern State College. Magnolia, Ark, and Wilson Matthews, head'coach at Little Rock High School. After these interviews, Thomas sajd, the committee will adjourn. "Probably some other name coaches will be Interviewed later." he added. Barrier to Slay In on open session yesterday afternoon, the screening committee look the stand, that regardless of who is employed as football coach, the separate office of at- lettc director will be maintained al Arkansas. Athletic Director John Barnhill sal in on both open and closed sessions of the committee. Douglas reporledly drew $12,000 to S12.5M annually In his three years at Arkansas. Bryant's Kentucky salary Is said to be in Ihe neighborhood of S18.500 a year. Bryant's closest friends here say the money differential doesn't, concern him, (hat he'll take (ho job if he's convinced facilities and conditions are conducive to winning football. Conditions Bryant reported to be attaching to possible acceptance of the position Include a free hand in running the team, freedom In selection of assistants and assurance that suitable living quarters to house players under one roof and 3 training table will be provided. The scrcenine. or advisory, committee officially has no authority to contract a coach. However, in the past, recommendations of such groups have been followed by the Board of Trustees In the employment of coaches. C.itejtorics Listtd At the committee's first session, Chairman Thomas told the members that n subcommiltee'-of the trustees had requested them to recommend the best available men In these catagorles: 1. Name coaches, 3. Assistant coaches ready for » head coaching position. 3. Head coaches In small colleges or high schools ready for advancement. 4. Possibilities on the present Arkansas staff. Thomas told the coinmittsemen Aiey could give special recompiciv dation to any category and—or men they desired. Commltteeman D. P. Raney of Little Rock told the other members: "I 'think if .would be a waste of lime to conduct a lot of Interviews now, I think tt would be better to offer the Job to Bear Bryant and let him turn It down before we even look at anyone else. He's the one 08 per cent of the people of Arkansas want." The committee nevertheless a- grccii It was bound to submit recommendations in nil IJie cnleeor- ies. * Committee members attending last night's In^rvicw with Bryant were, In addition (o Thomas nnd nancy, Dale Hamilton of ParaRould: Chlsm Reed'of Paris; liar- les Cross. old Sadler of Little Rock and Tom Cutting of Ft.

Mississippi also was unbeaten, but had been tied twice, by Kentucky and Vanderbilt, and "hardly had beei) given a tumble by the pollsters. That afternoon the Ole Miss line completely bottled up Maryland's celebrated T quarterback, Jack Scarb.itli. Jimmy Lear- assumed the star's role instead, and in the final quarter completed a 42-yard pass to Bud Slay that set up the winning touchdown by Wilson Uillard.
