Coixch .Howie .Odcll, though ho clunics thiil his team Is terrific, conies right out and says that they are not so bad. And that's opti- nil.-tm, coming from a football couch. If Yule hna any weaknesses thi.s year they're in the bacltfield—not tho lino, Thi? forward wall looks like the best In 20 years of New Haven football. There are 'plenty of big, toujjh, and experienced boys to handle every position. Cuptnin TUnc Whiting leads the nii forwards from his guard post with Tom 'Smith as his running riiatc. Bnilnard Warners is the center, though he's still facing serious competition from Cliff Thompson. At end Odell has Paul Walker,, who has been called one of tho best flankmen in the country. One of tho tackles is 220-pound Johnny Prchllclt—and the rest of the bunch follows that pattern. Behind the line, Couch Odell las been encouraged by the work of Frank Gillis of Ansonia and Ro;,'er Barksdale. They looked good | tearing; through Holy CI-JSK in a] iructicc scrimmage the other day, ] Gillis wau just another substi •die last year. But this season he has developed into a good ball car- •ier and a splendid blocker. Barksdale weighs only 1C5 pounds, but he rims hard, and he'll make a Rood fullback for tho Yale "T". formation. Odcll spent the summer grooming Jake Hall for the important qiuii'tcrback slot. But three weeks igo Jake broke n bone in his ankle in an informal scrimmage.

Sept. 2S — Vale's'hope to scuttle the touph Coast Guard Academy eleven was elevated this morning with the announcement that two of the biggest of the seven "blocks" from which Coach Hou'.'o Odell has built his forward wall—Paul Walker and \Vusti Hanson—hampered by minor ifijitries the two weeks, would be ready to start in the opener on I the Saturday. Meanwhile, the Yale team worked with all-out effort to prepare- for the meeting with the New London Cartels, recognising that they have polished their attack in soundly spanking both Bates and 'Tufts by large margins and are pointing especially for this game. The services of both "Walker, an end, and Huns on, a freshman tackle, will be needed to bottle up the three-pronged ground and overhead attack of ihc Coast Guard which has netted them 73 points in the two games they have ttici:ecl away in the win column. Walker is a 200-pounder, while Hanson packs an additional ten pounds. Both are six-feet, three- Inches tall. Local schools this season* will play football along progressive lines. Of the approved rulca- the one which permits) un opponent to advance with a fumbled ball Is the most Important, This means the return to local football of the thrill and throb that were taken from it some years ago. Jt will be a thrill or a throb depending' on the point of view of the player .and spectator. To say the least the game will offer it,a exciting moments when la player scoops In a loose ball and starts goalward. This play always comes under tho head of the "unexpect- •cd." Some time ago, when tho N. C. A. A,, refused to unfreeze .'the rules, the E. I. A, A. nnd the C. I. A. A. went into session and recommended six rule changes in an effort to popularize the game and also enable it to keep pace with the professional standards. Of the six recoinmenaiitloiis, five Hlnce litivu l>oen approved liy tho collogCK. Connvctlcut high nchools will UNO nil nix change* unlcmt vouchers iigroc different bcfbri Kainc time. This nioan.H that the out-of-bounds Ulckoff Is prohibited | one inch artlllclal tci;.s ;iri; permitted for itickoffs: penalties Tor illegal P:LSS niiido less severe; off slilo rtilo clarified, and permitting 011 opponent to advance with u rumbled hall. The one rule which the exccu tive committee of the college board "failed 1 'to approve dealt with the forward pass from any point behind the line of scrimmage. Some high school coaches may' also "frown" oa it, too. This rule deals with the "buck-passer"; that is to sa'y; when the tailback takes tho snap from center, 'Starts as if. to buck the line and then leaps into the air heaving the ball forward. This play originated live years :\K" In lY'iins.vlvariiu high schools and was added to the pro rules the folliMving yiuir, while the collcR'ans nnd local high schnols In New ling- 'limcl compelled the pusscr to he lit least live yards behind tho line of scrimmage before passing. Concerning the failure of this rule to meet nationwide approval. Commissioner Asa Bushnell said: "Too many of the m c m b e r schools were slated to meet nonmember teams and that >' such a change wore adopted the member teams would llnd it dilllcult to alter their passing offense on a gatne-to- gnme basis." All of which sounds plausible but the average fan is going to be kept guessing when he poos to a game under different rules every other week or so. On tho who'.c the changes should go-a .long way toward restoring the coilege and high school game to popularity it once enjoyed in ON THE AIR TODAY the minds 'of the thousands of football 'fans. JJ; use bull follows a pattern of the major Imurues rules. \Vhy can't the college nnd high high school football associations follow the same plan (?)

By BERNARD BRENNER United Vrem Sport* Staff There's an old proverb that says: "Beware the Greeks bearing gifts.' But it doesn't say anything about the fellow who bears gifts to a. Greek—a man like Larry MePhail for instance. f Larry went to California once -with a gift for a Greek second baseman—Alex Kampouris. It was u contract to play m;).joi league baseball for the Cincinnati Reds. Larry was rebuilding the Cincinnati Reds at that time. He was devoting most of his days during the 1934 season to cleaning house — rounding up a fresh, young team to give the Reds a new start in J930. Larry wanted to bring most of his new men up from the minors. The club didn't have enough money to buy top major league stars — and Larry didn't want to bring in fading -veterans. Reports begun, to trickle in from one of the Cincinnati scouts on the Pacific coast — .reports, about a youngster named Alex Kampoui-is. The kid played for Sacramento in the Pacific Coast league. .And the scout told McPhall that Alex was the kind of player the Reds wanted. Alex was in his third year with Sacramento in 1934. Already the word was spreading that the kid could field anything he could see. They said he could make double plays with the best of them. And in the batting department — wel). Alex hit .304 in 1933. which is good enough for a flashy inlielder. The Cincinnati scout told McPhail to get Kampouris quickly, before some other major league club moved in to grab him. And in July of 3934 Larry flew to California to watch Kampouris play. He had heard enough to convince him the kid knew what to do on the diamond. But there was one other thing he wanted to know— could Alex take it?—Did he have the nerve and fight to stand up in the majors? So MePhail was bearing a gift when he arrived in California—-but there was a string attached. Larry looked around for a way to test the young second baseman —and he found the hard way. Me- Phail found that Archie Campbell —who. had once pitched for the Reds—was starting against Sacramento for the Hollywood club. Campbell had worked for McPhail at Columbus, too, and Larry went to the pitcher. ilcPhail's proposition was this: He wanted Campbell to make his first pitch to Kampouris a "duster," He wanted that first one to come in high and hard towards the second baseman's head, driving him into the dirt to get away from it. After that Larry said he'd watch Alex Kampouris' face the rex riitch. If he. paled and \Tlinchcd— backed away from the ball—then Larry .didn't want any pan. of him But if he crowded in and whaled away without any fear—then he was the kind of lighting ballplay or wanted for his club. At first Campbell wouldn't agree He didn't want to take any char.ce of hurling the youngster. But thoj talked it over with Campbell's manager nnd decided that just once wouldn't hurt. Kampouris stepped in against Campbell and the pitcher came through with a roaring fast one. Alex hit the^ dirt. Then he got up, dusted off his pants and picked up his stick. McPhail leaned forward in his seat watching closely. Campbell wound up for the next one and poured it in. Alex Kampouris stood up there. He didn't flinch or back away. He stepped into that pitch and caught it on the nose—slammed it far and away. Larry McPhail . settled back i'n hi.s seat. Kampouris was his man and he gave the Greek his gift.

TAf-ffti FRANKIE CARLE Louisville Takes A. A. Championship New York, Sept. 28— (UP)— The I-Ouisvillc Colonels of the American association made it four in n. row over the St. Paul. Saints to win the association playoff series r.nd cop the association championship. The Colonels look last night's game 3 to 2. In Baltimore the Orioles of the International league blasted a trio of Newark pitchers to win over the Bears 1-1 to 3 in thc-opening game of the Shaughnossy playoffs. (By Aa far as the St. I^ouis Brown* arc concerned, the J-ain that delayed both the scheduled afternoon game and Ihc night event, should have kept coming down. Had rain cancelled the night game the Brownies would stand just hall' a gumc out or the league- lead. Eut the rain stopped and the Boston Red Sox u-ounccd th': Browns, •! to 1. behind the pitching of George Woods and Krstn)'. Barrett. As a result, the Brownies are now a full game behind the first place Tigers. The Eosox got one run in ihc opening frame to take the lead. t-.53i.on batsmen brought in a pair n the sixth while St. Ixiuis got its one lone run in the eighth— just before Boston drove in one- more n the ninth. The Detroit Tigers downed the Philadelphia Athletics earlier in the day, •; to 0, behind the pitch- ng of southpaw HaJ Newhouscr. The victory was number 2S for the steliar hurler. Twice tho Athletics threatened o ruin Newh-juser's record and wicc he coupled skillful hurling with the power of his teammates oat to_stave off defe-it. At Chicago the Xew York Yankees Kent alive their faint pennant hopes by taking th« Chicago White Sox, 7 to 2. Now three games behind the league-leading Tigers, the New Yorkers move onto St. 'Louis today for the opening o;' a four-game series. The Cleveland Indians o v e r- wholmod the "Washington Senators, G to -a, as Lou Houdreau socked his way into the American league baiting leadership. The young player-manager got three h:ts and raised his average to .32$ — two points ahead oi Bob | John;.-jn of the Red Sox. A rookie i pitcher — Earl Kenry— hurled his | lirsi major league game and his ; first victory for Cleveland. j In the National leaK-ue tho Brook- j yn Dodgers squeezed out a. 3 to i 2 victory over the champion St. I Louis Cardinals behind the pilch- nig of rookie Clyde King. Eldred Byerly was named for the vloss.- • On their home field the Boston Braves blasted the Pittsburgh Pirates -I to 3 despite the fact that the Bucs rapped out 12 hits while the Braves garnered only seven. The Chicago Cubs downed the luckless Philadelphia Phillies be- j hind the fine relic]' hurling of Rod Lynn. Lynn took over the mount in the eighth to replace Paul Erickson. Bill Lee took the loss for Philadelphia. And in Xew York the Cincinnati Reds piled on the battered New York Giants vo score an S -to 1 victory and give Eucky WaJ- ters his 2ord triumph 01 the season.
