Dec. 14,-Take the wliole country from coast to coast ami pick the II best players — lump every All-American" tram picked and got the consensus—use any formula you wish but unless you delve Into'the National football League you slill haven't got i the best bunch o.' football playcib \ in the laud. ¥ The crcmc dc la creme of the gridiron Is named today by the Unltd Press—Ihc 1Q39 Ail-Prole:, slonal team. Before you think you can name n better clii!>, remember you'll have to have n passer who completes every other pass thrown, 11 fullback who ivhncks off 5.8 yards a crack, a pair of halfbacks good for nearly four yards oven time they start out on a journci a punter who averages over 40 yards, an end who requires two men to cover li(m, « guard who can nm as fast as a halfback. Thai just gives you an idea. The All-Pro backfleld is made up of Parker Hall, Cleveland Tuffy Lccimns, New York; Aiulv Parkas. Washington; and Bill Os maiiKki. Chicago Bears.

He completed iOG out of 208 passes for 1227 yards and nine I touchdowns. He was fifth In yardage gained, 458 yards in 120 attempts and was one of the league's best punters. Tlie two halfbacks, Leomnns and Farkas, are break away runners capable of getting away for a touchdown from any spot on the field. Leemans. famed for wriggling out of tackler's anus and running away, gained 420 yards in,12B attempts for a 3.3 average and Farkas, a power-runner, gained 547 yards in 139 attempts for » 3.0 average. Osmnnski led the league • in ground gained, ripphvg off 699 yards in 121 attempts for n 5.7 average. | Abo a rookie. Gsmr.iut.l \vns good enough to lake the Bears' No. 1 fullback job away from Joe Maniaci. who averaged seven yards every time he carried the ban. Mainstay of the line again was Alel Hein, New York Giante. center who made the first learn for (lie ninth consecutive year. Although 29 and playing his ninth year in the cash and carry ranks,.

We ol: today would see little in their lot. to occasion gratitude. Strangers in a strange land . . . with no luxuries and few comforts, menaced by hostile Indians and food shortage . . . those Pilgrim Fathers set aside a day of Thanksgiving for the year's, blessings. Thus they established a custom that is now older than our Republic . . , our oldest native holiday. Momentous changes have come into American lite.
