EVEMtiG, FEMtJARY 13, 1935 THE, £AMi»A DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texas PAGE COACH MITCHELL ASKS ROOKIES TO REPORT FOR SPRING FOOTBALL TRAINING GORILLAS WILL REPORT THIS AFTERNOON FOR WORKOUT Pampans Wilt Play Hedley In Grudge Tilt On Friday SAUCE FOR WIFffi, TOO The first call for spring football training was issued by Coach Odus Mitchell yesterday. It was for boys with no previous football experience and for boys ineligible for com- petion last year because of the transfer rule or scholastic difficulties. This afternoon, football prospects from tile Gorilla squad of 1934, who do not have other activities, were instructed to report. A. few eligible Harvesters who are not" playing basketball will go out for practice to help Assistant Coach Harry Phillips, who has arrived hero from El Paso to assume his duties. The prospects will work out every afternoon for two weeks, when a scrimmage will be conducted. Boys showing promise will be kept in uniform to work with the rest of the squad, which will be ordered to report at the close of the basketball season. If the Harvesters fall to win the district basketball tournament to be played here Feb. 22 and 23, it will mark the close of the season unless extra games nra matched. A win for the Harvesters will place them in the regional race with further competition ft Canyon. The Gorilla-; do not compete in any league and have few games scheduled in advance. Most of the members of the Gorilla basketball squad played football last season. Included in the list of prospects are Jone.5. Str:ck!:;iicl, Oliver, Nix, Baker, Kitchens, Elldns, Wasson, and Bowsher. Only two members of the Harvester basketball squad with past football experience will be eligible for football in 1035. They are the Green brothers, J. R. and Stokes. Herring and Irving will be eligible for football if they desire to try for places on the team. Fundamentals will be stressed by Coach Phillips during his early training periods. Coach Phillips, ' for trie last 6 years line coach at Tex.a§ School of Mines, El Paso, is recognized as one of the most capable coaches on fundamentals. The new, line coach is skilled in teaching interference and blocking which -will be stressed after practice gets under way with the full squad in amiform. Coach Mitchell will stay with his basketball team until the close of the season. He will visit the practice field, wb'/ich will be across - from the Sam Houston school, whenever possible. Coach Phillips has already become popular with the boys. He is the'type of coach who studies his prospects. He gets into the line and shows them, how it should be done, and, to Judge by Us record, at Texas university, School of Mines, and at coaching schools, he "knows," Bobsled Squad Is Chosen for 1936 Olympics LAKE PLACID, N.

(/P) —Dizzy and Paul Dean of the Cardinals are hopeful of exceeding or at least equalling their last year's pitching records, but the great "Diz" admitted today it was going to be. a much more difficult season, "Me and Paul got a lot of breaks last year," he said, "but every team in the league will be gunnin' for us this year and then again the 'breaks' don't ccme to you all of the time." Detroit, the team which Dizzy and Paul defeated in the world series last fall, is just "a mediocre ball club," in the opinion of the Cardinals' No. 1 man. There isn't any question about which team will win the National league race this, year, according to the elder Dean, but he thinks the Pirates and Giants will engage in a clog fight for second place. Dizzy has gone in for golf here in a big way. His lowest score is 70, but "I am getting better every day," he said. Record Number Of Holdouts in Chicago's Cubs CHICAGO, Feb. 13 (/P)—The Chicago Cubs, long noted as the holdout proof club of major league baseball, may open spring training this year with a record crop of recalci- trants parked stubbornly around the mail boxes awaiting and demanding more money. Although 1935 contracts were mailed more than a month ago, noticing ha's been heard from six of the team's prospective regulars. The six, now regarded as holdouts, are Outfielders Chuck Klein and Frank Demaree, Infielders Billy Herm and Woody English, and Pitchi Bill Lee and Larry French. All other players haye signed or have made dates to talk contract before the team's departure for the spring training camp at Catajina. Island February 25. LeFors Faculty Beats McLean's In 36-26 Game The LeFors Fa.cujty basketball team drubbed the McLean teachers and ex,-Tigers 36 to 20 on tb|6 Le- Fors floor Mcnday night. In. a preliminary game, the LeFors Junior high team won a 16 to G game from the Mcl>;au Junior high team, Ths faculty contest was evenly played until the last half, when the Smith-Bronsan combination started clicking to put LeFors in the lead. The two LeFors coaches tied for high scoring honors with 16 points each. Loder, McLean center, led his team's scoring with 16 points. Coach Garrison Rush and McCarty, ex-Tiger star, followed with 5 points each, Simmons and Carruth Iqd the Le- Fors junior points each. high attack with 6 The team that knocked the Harvesters ant of a district basketball championship here last year, Coach "Dumb" Newnian's Hedley Owls, will come up to Pampa Friday night to take on Coa«h Odus Mitchell's cagers again. Naturally, the Harvesters, particularly J. R. Green and Bill Dunaway, regulars on the 1934 quintet, will have a chip on their shoulders, and will be anxious to beat the Owls. Last season, the Harvesters whipped the Hedley cngers once or twice, but lost the crucial games in the play-off here and at H6dley. That the Owls have a good team is an admitted fact. Last Saturday night they were nosed out 41 to 40 by Clarendon for the championship of Donley county. However, Clar.- endon mus.t. beat Goodnight .Saturday night lor the titular honors o£ the two countries of Donley and Armstrong in order to. represent them at the district meet here Feb. 22-23> Otherwise Hedley will' have another crack at the crown. Hedley's team has improved rapidly and is now in the peak of excellence. There is no way of conv- paring the Owls with the Harvesters since neither has ; played each other, nor teams the other has played. Coach Mitchell was positive today that the Owls would furnish plenty of competition. Newman has another flock of long-distance experts, and the prospect of seeing Owls sinking the ball from center and other remote sections of the court Friday night is very likely. Hedley almost defeated Clarendon because the Owls were able to swish the basket i;ods away. "Any team hat can score 40 points while the other team is scoring 41 must be pretty good," said Coach Mitchell "We will have a battle on our hands from the- first minute of the game.' The Harvester mentor is driving his charges hard this week. He hopes his team will reach the peak by next week-end when the district meet will be held. The chief weaknesses of the Harvesters in last week end games which they won, was inability to break fast, inaccurate passing, too much dribbling. The boys are practicing two hours daily this week. On Saturday night, the Ganyoi Eagles will, play the Harvesters on the local court. The LeFors faculty has matched a game with the White Deer faculty for next week. The LeFors aggregation is pointing for a game with the undefeated Parnpa". faculty quintet. Proceeds of the game in LeFors Monday night went to the Boy Scout troop which is raising money to purchase uniforms.

Wrestling Plans Are Up in Air Building Sought "When are we going to have som more wrestling in Pampa?" is th query of Pampa sport fans. Th answer is that nobody knows. There is no building in the city available for the holding of wrest ling matches. .Since the Pla-Mo auditorium was remodeled, it die not leave enough ceiling space fo wrestling- Pat Garrison, who has made ap plication for the Pampa license, i busy hours a day looking for a suit able building or for someone tc build a suitable place for the hold ing of wrestling and boxing match es. He believes the building coulc be rented for enough other actlvi ties, to give the builder a fair returr on hjs investment. With the basketball season near ing its close, Pampa sport fans wil have, no place to go for an eve ning's entertainment and they ar yelling for some wrestling and box ing. It will probably be possible t stage outdoor wrestling and boxini at Road Runner park when th weather becomes suitable, but tha will not be for several months! TOURNEY ANNOUNCED DALHART, Bleb. 13.

Students may boo or cliccr their teachers tonight, jnst as they choose, when the faculty basketball team tangles again with Mclean's aggregation on the gym floor promptly at 7:30 o'clock.

The tcach- rs are experts at covering up their lip and knee work, in pivoting, ilocking and in other fine points of he game.
