One item in favor of thrice- beaten, once-tied Texas is that it hasnt been whipped by just ordinary teams. Beaten by Good Teams The Longhorns' lickings were administered by North Carolina Oklahoma and Southern Methodist, pegged in anybody's books as among 1948's finest. And Texas, winding up its 2nd season as a "T" formation outfit, an enviable bowl record—it has „__.., _ v uutr.1. i.l_V_^J. tl 1. \j hasn't been beaten yet in 4 postseason classics. In 1943 Texas triumphed 14-7 over Georgia Tech in the Cotton Bowl; in other Cotton Bowl games It tied Randolph Field in 1944, 7-7, and outlasted Missouri 40-27 in 1946, and dealt Alabama a 27-7 defeat in last year's Sugar Bowl. In his 2nd season as Longhorn mentor, Cherry developed a burly line which averages almost 207 pounds to the man. Ranked as one of the best in the southwest, the 2 sides of the forward wall are welded together at center by Dick Harris, an all-conference 216- pounder. In 3rd Bowl Game For one Longhorn, Guard Vic Vasicek, the bowl business is an old experience. He played in the Rose Bowl as a marine trainee with Southern California in 1946 and with Texas in the Sugar Bowl last Jan. 1. Another standout is Errol Fry, an 18-year-old guard who handles most of the offensive chores at that position. The starting lineup against Georgia will feature Tackle George Petrovich, an all-conference performer, if he recovers from a knee injury suffered in the Texas A. & ML game. Ed Kelley fills the other tackle spot, and is considered one of the Longhorns' most potent linemen on the offensive and an experl blocker. Lewis H o 1 d e r and Dale Schwartzkopf handle the end assignments. Cherry also has depth in reserve strength in the line, including R E. "Peppy" Blount, who ranks well in pass-receiving. Quarterback Paul Campbell, Halfbacks Billy Pyle and Randall Clay and Ray Borneman, charging fullback and the Southwest conference's leading ground-gainer of the year, round out the starters. That's the team which chalked up 2,066 yards in 10 games on the ground in 1948. Outside the 3 losses, Texas whipped Louisiana State, New Mexico, Arkansas, Rice, Baylor, Texas Christian, and tied Texas A. & M. Though they may not stage a "march through Georgia," Cherry and his Longhorns want it known they are miffed at talk that they are "third-rate." HIGH SCHOOL Iowa CUy 13; Davenport 4IJ.

Blue-Gray Game on Christmas Day Rated as Tossup Montgomery, Ala., (fp) — Allstar teams from north and south of the Mason-Dixan line wind up preparations Friday for Saturday's llth annual game of the Blue-Gvav foo'tball series. Coaches have been polishing up their offenses most of the week From the looks of it, the 2 teams will be shooting for touchdowns nearly every play. Right now most experts are rat- Ing the game a tossup, depending on which eleven gets its offense clicking first and keeps it going the longer. The Yankees probably have an edge with their average 207-pound man line. On the other hand, the Rebels have more depth and possibly more talent in the backfield. In practice, Brown's Ed Finn continued to thread the needle with his passes. A teammate, Phil Collella of St. Bonaventure, was hitting his receivers often enough to show he'll be a threat when Finn goes out of the game. Bullet Bobby Thomason of V. M. I. shapes up as the south's top passer. He threw 14 strikes during the 1948 season, each going for'a touchdown and his performance this week has been up to par. Joe McCary of Virginia will do most of the passing when Thomason isn't. The south will build its running game around such men as Shorty Me Williams and Harper Davis of Mississippi, power-driving Harry Bonk of Maryland and Russ Inman of Auburn. Big Vito Kissell of Holy Cross is expected to do a lot of the Yankee line plunging. Wally Dreyer of Wisconsin, George Guerre of Michigan State and Phi! Collella appear to be the Yanks fanciest openfield runners. Disabled Pair Forms Extra Point Combination for Phoenix College AP Newsfeatures Phoenix, Ariz.,—Physical disabilities failed to stop a couple of Phoenix college boys from earning football letters. The 2, Bill Small and Jack Farmer, formed the school's point after touchdown kicking set. Bill did the booting and Jack the holding. The combination hit 8 out of 10 attempts and Coach Chink Colemnn blames one miss on a poor pass from center. Coleman likes to tell the story of the boys who "couldn't play football" yet through grit and determination got into the game. It was during early fall practice that a husky fellow interfered with practice sessions and without invitation sat in on secret meetings of the Phoenix Bears. Coleman finally asked him to leave. I -j name was Bill Small and the six-foot-one 197 pounder had been a prep gridder earlier, but a tractor accident left his left leg partially crushed. He told the coach he could only Kick. Chink gave him his chance. Phoenix at that time hadn't erected its goalposts, so Small practiced kicking at the small basketball backboard. It proved go effective that he continued to drill with the smaller target. His holding buddy, Farmer, suffers from a spinal injury. He reported for the squad but doctors made him give up the sport. He asked Coleman if he needed an assistant student manager. "We've already got o n e," farmer was told, "but if you want, you cnn hold the ball, while that fellow kicks." Stan Musial Adds Slugging Title to His Other Honors New York, (U.R)—Stan Musial of the Cardinals, who has more laurels trjan some folks have irons in the fire, added still another Friday when he was officially designated slugging champion of the National league for 1948. The slender, 28-year-old Redbird outfielder posted a slugging mark of .702, league averages disclosed and it marked the first time since the late Hack Wilson of the Cubs slugged .723 in 1930 that a National league player reached an average of .700. Possession of the slugging title —such averages are based on the percentage of total bases on hits in total times at bat—gave Musial his 4th major title of 1948. Previously he had been named the most valuable player in the league, batting champion and runs-batted in champion. Outfielder Jeff Heath of the Boston Braves finished 2nd in slugging with .582 and Johnny Mize of the New York Giants was 3rd with .564. Behind them were Sid Gordon of the Giants, .537, and Ralph Kiner of Pittsburgh .533.

Herman Hickman of Yale, coach 25-man squad "I want you boys to look sharp out there Christmas night. If we win we'll dine on steaks and beei If we lose we'll eat bread and water." "We're ready and in grea shape," said Andy Gustafson, University of Miami, coach of the South team. Wednesday both teams ran through plays and worked on pass offense and defense. Both Hick- rnan and Gustafson have promisee a wide-open, free-scoring with plenty of passing. game Big Seven Basketball Tourney Starts Monday Kansas City, (#>)_Big Seven basketball teams were ready for their conference tournament Friday after winding up their best week against non-league foes so far this year. Big Seven teams won 2 of 3 games Thursday night as Colorado trimmed New York university 68-65 at New York, and Kansas university came from behind to beat Centenary 49-41 at Lawrence, Kans. Only Oklahoma's loss to Syracuse prevented a Big Seven sweep. The Sooners lost at Syracuse, N. Y., 55-49. Five victories against 7 losses was the conference's record this week, bringing the season total to 8 victories and 24 defeats in outside competition. The conference tournament begins here Monday night with Har- | _, vard university filling out the CeOfOr Rapids Raiders bracket of 8. . . r SPORTS PARADE By OSCAR FRALEY New York, (U.R)—This has been i busy year in sports, with grim struggles for titles and headlines— Tnd money—but at times there were lighter moments which produced daffy developments you may have overlooked. • For instance, there was the Santa Susana Stakes, won by Mrs. Rabbit with Candy Kane in the money. Could you think of a bet- er Christmas-Easter parlay? And then the Phillies tugged at he smile muscles of your kisser vhen they announced that hence- orth and forevermore they would 'stop paying big money" for es- ablished stars and concentrate on ievelopment of young players. That is, undoubtedly, a i-eaffirma- ion of their 1901 policy. Army's Meat Then there was the sensational nnouncement that the University f Hawaii would onen redoubtable Army's 1949 football schedule. Yes, t's the same U. of H. which engaged in a thrilling 73-12 defeat t the hands of Nevada. The Detroit police moved into he act by setting (5 world pistol hooting records. Which reminds . boys, that there is a law in Detroit against opling the gals. Ruled Out as Pro They held the annual VaMosta- to-Waycross bicycle race in Georgia. The winner, a Western Union boy, was reportedly disqualified as .a professional because he took a tip while delivering a tel egra m. In Greece, troops were called out to prolec-t the Olympic flame carriers from the guerrillas. The closest, approach to a scan- dnl involved the Olympic athletes. There were reports that the girls visited the men's camp frequently at night The upshot was that 250 women athletes were moved farther away. Can you imagine? Probably the most intriguing bit of news of the sports year came out of Korea. This little tidbit concerned the fact that one Lee Hynk, a muscular citizen who tosses bar bells and such, bettered the world mark by 13 pounds doing the 214-pound snatch. Sour Name in Boston There was, also, the damage suit brought against the Boston Red Sox by Mrs. Mary Corrivean. The lady demanded $1.000, claiming injuries had been sustained from a bnll hit by Lou Boudreau of the Cleveland Indians. The gentlemen who own the Red Sox should sue her for even daring to bring up his name. Do you remember what Boudreau did to those Red Sox with his bnt in that American league playoff? Gustafson will utilize George Blanda of Kentucky for most of the passing Hickman is assignments relying on while Notre Dame's great Terry Brennan. Charlie Bednarik has been elected captain of the North team and Barney Poole, Mississippi's star end, will captain the Southern squad. Gustafson said he planned to utilize 2 complete teams, running them into the game every 10 minutes. Wake Forest Has Fine Backfield to Throw at Baylor Wake Forest,, N. C., (U,R) The Demon Deacons of Wake Forest, the single wing veterans who switched to a "T and a prayer" this year, will take a flashy, battering backfield and one of the nation's finest ends to Birmingham's Dixie Bowl New Year's Day to meet Baylor. The bowl bid wound up a season of surprises at Wake Forest. The first came when Coach Douglas Clyde "Peahead" Walker, barrel-bodied collector of gaudy neckties, crying towels and monstrous linesmen, abandoned his traditional single wing and adopted the T formation—the formation he refused to use last year because "Dammit, I don't want to." The 2nd surprise came when the Deacons took naturally to the new formation and proceeded to defeat every team which had defeated them in the 1947 season. Wake Forest finished the season with 6 wins and 3 losses. Peahead's boys lost their 2nd game to Boston college 21-12 and swore they'd slaughter them in a rematch. Their only other losses were at the hands of undefeated and untied Ciemson and North Carolina's Sugar Bowl Tarheels.

Gilmour "Gil" Dobie, one of the nation's famed football coaches, died Thursday night^at the Institute of Living. He was 70 years old. Dobie had been a patient at the institute for the past several months. Cause of death was not disclosed. Dobie started his football career as a player at the University of Minnesota.

He also coached teams at the University of Washington, the U. S. Naval Academy, Cornell and Boston college. He ended his coaching career In 1938 at Boston college where he was succeeded by Frank Leahy, now head coach at the University of Notre Dame. Oregon Will Rely on Passing Game to Defeat Mustangs Dallas, Tex., (U.R)—The University of Oregon, which meets Southern Methodist in the Cotton Bowl Jan. 1, indicated Friday :hey would try to beat the Mustangs at their own game—passing. Oregon Coach Jim Aiken accented passing plays during Thursday's practice sessions and said "We're going to work on some new pass patterns next week which we hope will puzzle Southern Methodist."

On Tuesday, USC beat Wisconsin and UCLA trimmed Northwestern. North Carolina State, Southern conference champs, made only 4 field goals in the first half against San Francisco's man-for-man defensive tactics. In chalking up their 6th win in 7 starts before an eastern invasion, the Dons pulled away to a 45-30 edge in the 2nd half and in the last 4 months froze the ball. Hamline hung up its 6th traight victory in the opening game of the San Francisco twin bill, whipping Santa Clara 60-53. In contrast to its 51-50 defeat at the hands of Temple in Philadelphia the night previous, Colorado rallied in the closing minutes to nip NYU. The Violets led at 59-54" and again at 65-64 before Bill Ley rimmed 2 free throws to put Colorado ahead for good in the last 20 seconds.
