PAGE SIX Trains, Buses, Planes To Carry Confident Tennessee Fans KNOXVILLE, . Tenn. (UP) — A virtual air armada carrying Tennessee Volunteer supporters will leave here tfew Year's Eve for tos Angeles. Persons \vho won't Imvc more than three or four days crT from (heir work and refuse to miss seeing the mighty Vols (angle with the, University of Southern California Trojans were making plans lo fly out to the West Coast long before Tennessee «'.is Invited— for the first time— lo play In (he Rcse Bowl. • The alumni are excited -.and literally hundreds of inquiries arc being lodged with local airline offices about the flight.. Reservations on ships making the regular flights were booked solid two months before the football season ended. Planes Arc Chartered So now there's a demand for chartered planes. Planes nrc being contracted for within minutes after they are offered for service. But the airlines aren't getting nil of the business. Bus lines are likely to be forced io run special buses. The rail lines between here and Pasadena also will carry their !oad as special train after special train begins to roll. The plans of Volunteer supporters- to make the trip dates all the way back to last year, when everyone was so sure that Tennessee would be invited to represent the East, only to receive H jolt worse thiui a defeat from a second-rate school would have delivered. Tliis year Knoxvlllciles were determined fo see the Vols in the Rose Bowl. Gov. Prentice Cooper went so far as to deliver this statement to all opponents on the Tennessee schedule: "I don't want any of you gentlemen upsetting Tennessee. I want the Vols lo go to the Hose Bowl, anfl I want them." to go Confidence Never Shaken Lesser state officials also began making plans when they saw that ' Tennessee was just as much a fire-ball as .last year. Everybody reasoned, that .the Rose Bowl couldn't overlook the Vols it they .finished the season without being defeated, as they did last year. With the Volunteers through the season unscorod on, after bentiug Auburn, 7-0, Knoxville didn't even miss sleep to learn who would be invited that night to represent the EasU The inhabitants retired as usual that Saturday night, and when they saw banner lines in Sunday morning newspapers declaring the Vols. had ben invited to the Rose Bowl they were not surprised. Family Goes Hunting, Watch For All Nine BIDDEPORD, Me. (UP)—Apparently the motto of the Slnckpolc family is "don't trust a stranger." When nine members of the family went hunting In woods near here, they posted the area with signs reading: "Don't shoot-it may be a Stackpole."

Now that the season is here when sports writers go balmy ns a crum- ,)cl and pick AU-Amcrlcnn (ootball learns, All-American flops, AII- Americnn crap shooters, horseshoe pitchers and goat-getters. I would like to pick, with discrimination and expert knowledge, an All- Aincrlcnn team of Guests. I hnve unusual facilities for The mo*t appreciated gift you could tend him. studying tills Jorm'of athlete because my plate is a sort of cross between a norj-paylng dude ranch, a non-paying parking space and a non-paying cafeterln with meals at all hours. I love guesUs. 1 am gregarious. For captain, n.uartc,rbnck and signal caller I unhesitatingly put Hie finger upon Henry McLcmore, itinerant proprietor of tills column, He is In his senior year as a guest. He is especially good at, picking unhandy times to arrive. Unerringly he puts In -his' • appearance when every Ucd"is full of other guests that I have actually invited. This never deters him. He tucks Ills suitcase under his arm, scoots 00 yards through n broken field nnd makes a touchdown In Die bedroom nearest to the dining room and the liquor closet. He Is going to turn professional next year, but even with seasoning cannot hope to excel his record ns nn amateur guest. As fullback I select Grnntlund Rice. His technique differs from McLcmore's In that he always tele- graplis of his arrival. He wires he will come Tuesday, whereupon you meet early morning trains every dny until Friday. At left half I pick Frank Craven, who slowed up the performance of the play "Our Town" until it rim for two years. Mr. Craven does not come—he oozes in. But ll is very difficult to iwrsuadc him-to ooze out again. At right half my choice Jails upon John Kicrnn. the sage of "Information, please" wlso knows llie answer to every question except "When are you going home?" At left- end I have selected Jimmy Cagucy, the dove of peace of Hollywood. Mr. Cagney docs not madden you by getting up loo early in the morning nor br overeating or asking for temporary loans as do some of the previous I selections. But he docs setting-up I exercises on the front lawn neatly | dressed In the lower half of a suit ' of abbreviated underwear. At right end goes Edward McNamara, one-time thrush but now occupying the legltimnlc stage In New York. He comes upon invitation but departs only after a court i order. It is a quaint lillle pecu- I llarity of his Hint lie cats only , rive times a day. Without question the position of center goes to Guy Klbbee. He dotes on his friends and wishes them to have as many of the good things in life as lie obtains himself—if it can be done with no expenditure of cither trouble or money. Therefore lie never arrives alone to be my guest hut always with a phalanx. He does not stay so long at a time but he comes terribly, terribly often. It will be noted Hint I have picked neither guards nor tackles. This is not an oversight. It is because, with the center and backfield here- In disclosed, no other players are necessary. This team, unaided, can wreck old Southern hospitality itself.
