HOPS STAR, .HOPE, ARKANSAS College Football Gets Info High Gear This Week By AUSTIN BEALMEAR -New York. Sept. 23 — ( Off to a Hying start last Saturday, the college football season moves into high gear next week-end with choice intersectional struggles dot tiixg the program and enough con fercnce clashes .to provide an early line on title prospects in most o the major loops. - The" midwest, where Cincinnat spOed Indiana 15-6 in a startling upset which spiced the opening pro gram, also boasts the top attrac tion next Saturday — collision be tween two teams that are expectei to be among the best in the lead Illinois and Notre Dame.

There s Plenty of work to be done as the Razorbacks prep for next Saturday's clash with the mighty Oklahoma Aggies at Stillwatcr. Although perhaps no more so than in most opening games, the Razorbacks displayed a lot 91 loose ends and ragged edges in their hair's breadtl. 21-14 victory over Northwestern Louisiana otate Saturday. Coach John Barnhill and his boys realize they must iron out the rough spots pronto if they are to have a look in at Stillwater. Barnhill probably was the only one of more than 9.000 witnesses in Razorback stadium who didn t seem surprised at the narrow escape the Porkers had against the iunder-rated Demons. In fact, he seemed so unconcerned afterwards that one would think he had planned the exact score. Several factors pointed to just that First off. Barnie didn't play his starters more than a fourth of the game, if that much. Secondly, the Razorbacks used no more of variety of plays than absolutely necessary. They apparently were willing to sacrifice a largj; score to keep most of their wares out of the Shipping Strike Bottlenecks Railroads Builders and Owners Mostly Disgusted With Country's Home-Building Program war stars. ;yillanova. meanwhile, will open Navy's season at Annapolis, while Yale takes the wraps off what it expects will be a tough combination at New Haven for a go at the Merchant,Marine Academy, downed by Lehigh 7-0 last week, Columbia, at its strongest in years, opens at home against Rutgers.

At least Barnie got a look a four strings Saturday, and the score was not revealing. Arkansas gained 363 yards— 229 on the ground and 134 passing — to a tola of 64 for the visiting Demons whose two fourth-quarter touch downs, one definitely of the fluk variety, were marked up against the third and fourth elevens. One of manifold effects of the seamen's strike is shown above, where, m Pennsylvania yards at Philadelphia, hundreds of freight cars are tied up. Many are loac.cd wuh destined for Europe, but are stymied until shipping paralvsis ends. (Editor's Nole: This is the first of two dispatches that give you a nationwide look at the reasons for the yawning foundations and unfinished houses that arc the unhappy milestones of the country s home-building program.) BY S. BURTON HEATH NEA Staff Correspondent The pace of home building for a nation of home-hungry veterans has been faltering badly ever since peace returned. It is lagging even more sadly now because of ac ule material shortages.

Iron; ,„ way The job of building new farm telephone lines—held up during the war years—is well under way again. In more than 200 rural areas in the Southwest, telephone people are hard at work making surveys, talking to farmers, engineering the lines, ordering the materials, setting the poles, stringing the wire, and installing telephones. It's a big job, and we have a big goal—165,000 new farm telephones in the next five years. Scarce materials are making it no easier for us right*now, but we hope to bring telephone service to 40,000 farm homes this year. We can't work everywhere at once, but we realize the need for farm telephones, and we'll be coming your way just as soon as we can.

Ihe prized London diplomatic post. ' Those factors are the possible candidate's pocket book, political stature, personal health and past record. Alphabetically, here is how they stack up: 1. Gov. Ellis Arnall of Georgia, soon to be out of a job due to the stale law which prevents an incumbent from succeeding himself. Because of his political philosophy, Amall's choice might help some members of that Democratic faction left disgruntled by Wallace's dismissal from the cabinet. 2. Undersecretary of Stale Will Clayton, a successful businessman with personal assets equal to the financial and social obligations involved. Clayton, however, now holds clown a post of such fail-caching economic responsibility that it is unlikely he would be sidetracked to Britain. 3. General Mark W. Clark. Speculation here has centered chiefly around the fact Ihat a number of Mr. Truman's recent diplomatic appointments have been from military ranks. But Clark's tasks in \ustria remain of such magnitude 'iat there is doubt he would bo transferred to even as important a ost as ambassador Io Britain. 4. James Dunn, now ambassador o Italy.
