No Grid Title For Longhorns Says Cheviguy BY CHARLES E. SIMONS, Associated .Press Staff Writer. AUSTIN, Sept. 9 WP)—Chances for the University of Texas to rank with the lenders in the Southwest conference football campaign depend almost entirely on untried sophomores and 1934 second-stringers. Texas In the opinion of head 3oach Jack Chevigny, will not win ;he championship but will: 1. Give all opponents plenty of competition. 2. Win six or seven of ten games. 3. li'ave one or tliu smartest back- fieids, regular :uul reserve in years. 4. Prove a strong contender for he title if reserve linemen come through. With a flock of more than ordinary passers and fleet backs, Texas will play nn open .type game. It will rely principally on a tricky overhead offensive. The schedule Is much more favorably arranged than last year. Texas was hard hit by graduation, losing such stars as Bonn Hilllard, Jack Gray, Phil Sanger, and Charley Coates. Only 15 lettermen are returning, but they will be available for all positions. "I don't see a championship for Texas but I do see some pretty tough ganies for our opponents," Chevigny predicted. "We lost heavily through graduation and inellgibility. If the line comes through we will place well up in the field." Return of Charley Johnston of Kcrrvllle after being out a year bolstered the quarterback position. He is u clever field leader. a. consistently good runner and kicker and more than just fair at passing. The rest of the first string backfield will show Bill Pitzer of Breckenridge at fullback;' Jimmie Hadlock of Marshall, Duke Gllbreath. o Wellington, Hubert Jurecka of Robstown and Jay Arnold of Greenville Hadlock is slippery and a firs class passer. Jurecka is swift anc shifty. Gilbreath is the best blocking back since the days of Harrison Stafford. Arnold, big and fast is the line-rammer. An El Paso youngster, Sid. Strout is being hailed as the probable successor to Bonn Hilliard. Other backfield bright lights are Ney Sheridan of Sweetwater, John Morrow of South Bend, Ind., John O'Rourke of El Paso nnd Morris Sands of Chatfield. Two outstanding prospects are Judson Atchison of Bnird, fullback, and Tiny Tarleton of Vernon. tackle. Nick Wheeler of Longview and Henry Mlttermayer of South Bend, Ind., are good timber for fullback The starting front wall will be Lettermen Harold Griffin at center; Morcland Chapman and Joe Smartt, captain, of Austin, and Woody Weir of Georgetown, guards; Clint Small Jr. of Amarillo and James Tolbert of Farmersvllle, tackles; Jack Collins of Denton and Harris Van Zandt of Dallas, ends. Best line prospects are Bill Dunne of El Paso and William Hughes of Van Alstyne, centers; Alvin Eg- ^eling of Austin and John King and Vincent Vallone of Houston, guards; Nick Prankovic of Chicago; Raymond Keeling of Dallas and H'agan VtcMahon of Tyler, tackles; James Voss and Warren Wiggins of San Antonio, ends.

The exception was Fred J. Perry of England, the defending titleholder, and though surviving Americans outnumbered Great Britain's star by five players to one it was generally felt that these figures grossly exaggerated the adds against the invader gaining his third straight United States title. Arrayed against Perry were four Davis cup players—Wilmer Allison, Don Budge, Sidney Wood, Jr., and BiUsy Grant—along with Gregory Mangin, the national indoor champion. Perry's opponent in the semifinal will bo Allison. They are scheduled to meet tomorrow. As for the others, they're in the opposite bracket and will have to kill each other off to rate the final. If anybody had any misgivings about Perry and his almost consistently flawless game, he can cast them to the winds after the way MAJOR LEAGUE (By The Associated Press.) National League.

The scores were 6-4, 4-6, 8-6, 6-0. Shields is a hard man for anybody to beat. He was even tougher against Perry. The towering New Yorker displayed a newly-found useful backhand that plugged up the one weak spot in his game. He he wasn't expected to beat. Perry but he did furnish the champion with the stiffest test so far in the tournament.

SEASON TO START ON SEPT. 21—TWO WEEKS AWAY DALLAS. Sept. g yp>_several hundred young men, whose coaches devoutly hope they will turn out to be very husky indeed, will start preparation at the seven Southwest conference schools this week for a football campaign that promised on pre-season reports tonight to rival in thrills any gridiron war ever ought In the circuit. Conference rules forbidding the start of practice before Tuesday eft mentors a tremendous task— .he assembly of smooth-working ootball machines in less than two weeks. In the majority of cases he season will start Sept. 21. To conserve precious time, most athletic officials planned to Issue quipment and complete other formalities Monday, with double-daily workouts for the squads scheduled rom Tuesday until registration for lasses starts Sept. 18. Rice Institute of Houston drew his year's tough assignment of de- ending a championship. So far no Southwest conference titleholder has ever repeated, but Coach Jimmy <itts' Owls, with most of the regu- ars bock, were conceded a better han ordinary change to break the radition. Rice looked upon Texas Christian university at Fort Worth and iouthern Methodist university here as promising the toughest competl- ion. Games were scheduled with both of those teams and the Owls a'ced the handicap of playing them ioth at their homes. Both the Fort Worth and Dallas aggregations will lave a strong framework of veter- ns. The University of Texas, always a threat, was something of an unknown quantity, with several key men lost but a big and promising quad from which to pick replacements. Coach Jack Chevigny was pessimistic but firm establishment of his Notre Dame system was ounted In his favor. Baylor was figured on the upgrade, with a good supply of both •eterans and promising sophomores, A. -& M., with a revised coaching toff and the graduates of a great reshman team to help the experienced holdovers was by no means o be discounted. The University of Arkansas lost most of its great ine of last year but junior college ransfers promised- to brighten the lUtlook there. The only new head coach in the oop was Matty Bell, an assistant noved up to fill the S. M. U. .post r acated by Ray Morrison when the great exponent of forward passing eturned to Tennessee to direct the ootball destinies of his alma mater, /anderbilt.
