Tuesday and arrived trt lime to receive a full-fledged educational program on what these mentors do each day in preparation for a session on the gridirons. All of the Pampa High coaches —Weldon Trice. Eural Ramsey, Deck Woldt, Norman Phillips and Dwain Lyon — were there. They were going over a schedule of events for the practice session and what type of plays to prepare for the game Friday and the defense to use against Lubbock's Westerners. But their work starts early in the morning with a review of the opponent's game film and diagramming of offensive and defensive plays. Then they go to the practice field where almost everyone not associated with the coaches believes that the day actually begins. Thursday nights are spent in last minute preparation. T h en comes Friday — the day when all the planning and preparation either goes astray or according to plan. Saturday morning is the time for rehashing the game and Sunday the men -are back on the job preparing for next week's battle. Donnie Anderson, the great Stinnett halfback of I960, leads the Texas Tech freshmen grid- ders in four departments including rushing with a 5.5 average on 25 carries. Tech's Frosh plays Rice Saturday at Houston. The Owlets have a former class A all-state back of their own who has been doing real well. Me is Russell Wayt of White Oak, Wayt is one of the SWC leading freshman ground gainer with 190 yards in two games. But he twisted his ankle severely in the third period against Texas and is a doubtful starter against the Picadors, HI-POCKETS DON'T LIKE TO NEEDLE ™ f , m - BUT/ HAVE YOU BEEN PAYING.

Both clubs 'are undefeated in district competition but Groom leads with a perfect record while Wheeler has a tie to mar its log. Coach Dwaine Currie's Tigers came through a rugged non-conference card with a 2-3 record and with the three straight wins in 1-B play, the Bengals stand 53 on the season. lire Tigers, defending district champions, have triumphs ovsr Clarendon 12-6 and Panhandle 120 in non - conference battles and have scored wins over Fritch 348, Claude 37-0 end Follett 34-8 in district action.

Altohugli it's nice to have such n fine array of talent at a critical position he has a problem—it's almost impossible to decide who and it has been impossible for the coaches to decide on a clear-cut first stringer-" Rogers, a sophomore, was running as top gun at the fullback position Wednesday but Myers said that was no assurance Rogers would start against the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville Saturday--It just depends on who is the hottest at the time. Guard Jim Harper, out with a against the Cadets because of an injury. The University of Texas zipped through a routine practice which featured the running of Tommy Ford at fullback.

He has all but ruled out any chance of using center Dan Malin or tackle John Cornett in Saturday's game at Texas Tech. Both are hampered by injuries. The Reel Raiders mixed a dose of both offensive and defense work into their drill. Most hands appeared to be in top shape for the game with Rice.

Woody Hayes has been waiting for this meeting with Iowa for what to the Ohio State coach was a long, long year. Though the sides were rated even Stephen last fall, the Hawks piled it on, 35-12. The Buckeyes don't take shellack- ings like that sitting down/The Hawks will be rebounding after being ambushed in the Lafayette goo and Matt Szykowny ,will test them through the air, but Hayes has had time to mend the fences. And Bob Ferguson and Company will be cheered on by the great bulk of 83,000 people at Ohio Stadium. : Surprising Minnesota has bagged four straight since being edged by Missouri in its opener, but Michigan State has much too much of everything against Golden Gophers too dependent on defense. Mississippi has the offense, Louisiana State the. defense and 70,000 howling Cajuns at Tiger Stadium.'I have to go with the superior attack. Boom! It is the same story with Missouri invad ing Boulder, where Colorado is used to the altitude. Elsewhere in the country and starting in the East, I like Pitts burgh against a Syracuse club which is still banged up. Penn State is finally hitting and should take Maryland. Columbia is too well balanced for Cornell, West Virginia'for George Washington, Harvard for Pennsylvania and Princeton for Brown. Dartmouth gets a shaky vote over a Yale array due to win. The same goes for Iowa State at Boston College, Colgate at Lehigh and Army against Detroit. George Mira of Miami presents Georgia with a passing problem, but the Bulldogs have the equalizer in field goal kicker Tom Pennington. It's Auburn easily against Wake Forest, Clemson over Tulane, Georgia Tech over Florida and Kentucky over Flori da State. Line toughness gives Alabama and Tennessee the call against Mississippi State and North Carolina, respectively. In the Southwest, Texas takes Southern Methodist in stride. Baylor is still crippled, so it's Texas Christian. Arkansas' speed should prevail ag-ainst Texas A. and M. Rice's depth gives it a bulge against Texas Tech. In other skirmishes in the Mid west, Notre Dame just has to be the selection against Navy, Michigan against Duke, Northwestern against Indiana and Purdue at Illinois. In Big Eight territory, it's Kansas at Nebraska, Oklahoma at Kansas State and Oklahoma State at Wichita, Wyoming should be six-point favorite at Arizona. Utah State rates 10 points at Brigham Young.

Rutgens. . , , . Mr. Rutgens is that rarity in professional football — a pea- green rookie lineman who became a first stringer in his freshman year. The former Illinois star was the Redskins' number one draft pick for 1961 and of his performance in their first seven games, they have no reason to regret it. When he first showed up at Washington's training camp last July, both coaches and the team physician did a quick double- take. Rutgens arrived with a bay window the approximate size of a 21-inch television set. "Reduce", the doctor ordered. "I've had it all my life," the aggrieved Rutgens argued. "It's natural." Pot belly or no, Rutgens proved quickly it didn't make any difference whether he was shaped like a beer barrel or a svelte clothes model. Right from the .start, he impressed the coaches with his speed, mobility and power. The Redskins' sorry 0-7 record has obscured the achievements of its fine defensive line. Head Coach Bill McPeak says flatly he wouldn't trade his front four for any other four linemen in the National Football League — and he includes rookie Rutgens in that 6-3 forward, and Jim Storey', 6-5 post man. The Juniors a r • * ., *v Cantrell, 5-10 guard; Larry Ctif,- son, 6-0 forward. Only two sophomores are 'expected to help the Harvesters .and they are Gary Sikes, a 6-2 Ifor- ward a'nd''Kenny Hebert, a 5-10 guard. .Hebert, however, is still out for football -and will not rej port to practice" until the grid season'is completed. The Shockers' roster is made up of all sophomores except ;,for Donnie Ayres, a transfer student who is ineligible. ,J • The boys are forwards Mike Bridges, Charlie Price, Danny Heil and Bobby Price; guards Richard Rexroat, Eugene Madrid, G u y Cloud, and Rickey Stewart; and centers Gary Davis, John Fj.ta and John Tripplehorn. f; Culley stated that defending champion Palo Duro, Borger and Plainview would probably be thp top three teams in the district. 1961-62 Cage Schedule •• Nov. 24 Vernon T : Nov. 25 Childress T ' Nov. 28 Phillips T Dec. 1 Lamar, Colo.
