LOFTON NEWS-STAR SPORTS LATE FEATURES OF ALL THE SPORTS' ;>iii Tulane Defends Its Conference Title Against Georgi Two Other Important Battles on Schedule Duke and Auburn, Kentucky and Georgia Tech Clash In Make Or Break Tussles On Southern Football Fields ATLANTA. Ga., Oct. 8.~<;p>—The trail of the southern conference football title quest led over hazardous ground today as Tulane defended three years of laurels against Georgia and Duke and Auburn and Kentucky and Georgia Tech clashed in make or break engagements. There was little to choose between Duke and Auburn or Kentucky and Georgia Tech in the matches that will drop two of them by the wayside but Tulane was given little to fear from IRISH ARE BEATEN IN TALLULAH TILT Georgia barring one of the upsets that seem to be football's prime preroga- vv'l,’c'h the locals must encounter this TALLULAH, Oct. 8.-(Special)Continuing their pace as a high point scoring machine, the Tallulah Trojans Friday added the St. Matthew’s parochial school eleven of Monroe to their list of victims by rolling up a 45 to 0 count before a large crowd in a closing feature of the annil&l Madison parish fair. Although on the short end of a rather large score, the Monroe boys were marked by plenty 0f fight, never letting up, and in all supplied Coach M. A. Phillips’ charges wdth the stiffest opposition encountered thus far along a difficult schedule tive. The battle of Duke and Auburn at Birmingham held promise of developing into one of the bitterest of the day. Both have shown ability in early engagements and 'Auburn hod a fast attack and the Notre Dame system of play to match against Duke’s tight defense and the methods of Coach Wallace Wade who once instructed Alabama. Kentucky and Georgia Tech, playing in Atlanta, likewise have shown to good advantage in the early season. Ralph Kercheval’s kicking ability was about the cnly apparent shade the ■Wildcats from the Blue Grass had on the Engineers. Tech exhibited a vigorous offense in defeating Clemaon last week, and is making a bid to recoup the indignities of three bad seasons. Georgia appeared so weak in the defeat it get from V. P. I. a week ago that Tulane ranked the top heavy favorite in spite of its loss of Nollie Felts, captain and fullback, and the qualifications of Buster Mott, Georgias star halfback. The fight between North Carolina and Tennessee at Knoxville also drew a share of interest today. Tennessee was rated as the favorite because of its power but Carolina had a brilliant aerial attack to use in its attempt to upset the Volunteers. Florida opened its season at Jack- • sonville, the favorite against Sewanee, in another conference match while Clemson met North Carolina state at Raleigh and V. P. I. went up against Maryland at College Park ¡ike Georgia. Sewanee, North Carolina university, Clemson and Maryland already have been beaten this season. Dixie’s banner was carried to Washington, D. C., by Alabama in a game with George Washington today and the match was looked upon as a means of determining the Crimson Tide's conference chances. The navy, j with an edge, was host to Washington ; and Lee at Annapolis. Vanderbilt looked forward to season Led by Wixson, the Trojans again got away to a fine offensive start and before the final gun sounded Junior Morton, Fred Massey, and Wylie Towne, the Tallulah backfield quartet had given brilliant exhibitions of ball carrying. Cramer Hop| per, superb defensive back, was also | shining as were all the members of j the stout line. Louis Clements, Sam Scurria, Bob Gandy, Roy Boswell, Lloyd Evans, and Emmett Craig all played great ball in the local line. For the losers, j Jackson, Zagone and McLain were I outstanding on defense with Simpson and McEnery leading the offensive ! attack. The Mississippi college band pepped up the affair with a round of snappy music, and paraded between the halves. The starting lineup: St. Matthews Pos.

Rather, the boys have put more effort in the daily drills to bring themselves into unbeatable form lor the associational scrap. The lineup used in the scrimmages with the frosh eleven indicates that one or two changes will be made in the lineup Saturday, Royce Johnson's work as a halfback is believed to point that the flashy end will start in that position. Johnson, back in freshman days, was a star back and could do everything with the pigskin. Ills first varsity season in '31 was at end but with more material for the terminals this session he may get a permanent call for ball toting duty. Keltner, who has played all over the lineup, was run at quarterback during the skirmishes with the Pups and accomplished good work. The chunky signal caller can block well and that alone will help out the department. for the visitors in the line. PELICANS DEFEAT FOREST’S ELEVEN I marched down the field, making four consecutive first downs, bringing the ball to the 2 yard line. On the next play Castleberry hit the center of the Tine for a touchdown. The kick for | extra point went wild.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8.— (JP )-Joseph Cronin, youthful star short stop was today named manager of the Washington American league baseball club to succeed Walter Johnson. Clark Griffith, owner of the club, said Cronin has been given a one- year contract. In naming the young shortstop leader of the Senators Griffith followed the precedent set several years ago in naming Stanley “Bucky” Harris, young second baseman as manager. Harris led Washington to its only world championship. Cronin came to the Senators in 1928 and became a regular that season. Or.ce a fixture in the lineup he became one of the best infielders in the game, hitting well over .300 and fielding sensationally. Only 26, he will be the youngest manager in the major leagues. The release of Walter Johnson, manager of the Senators since 1929, was announced this week by Griffith. A place kick by "Smokey” Desmond gave the L. T. I.

OAK GROVE DEFEATED BY RUSTON’S ELEVEN (L. P. I.) umpire; Walker (Mississippi college) head linesman. Meeting a scrapping football team from Dubach at Forsythe park last night, the Neville high school Tigers emerged victorious by a score of 18 to 6. The triumph was particularly impressive in view of the Tigers’ ordinary showing in its two previous wins over weak opponents. The game w'as fast and well played and both teams displayed some good football. The Tigers played a heads-up game and deserved to win. They battled their heavier opponents every inch of the way and looked impressive in beating one of the best Class B teams in north Louisiana. Three long rims were responsible for the Tiger victory. Two of these sprints were made by George Manteris. who again carried the burden for the bacxfield, and the other was turned in by Basco. “Butch" Martin furnished mast of the interference for all three of the runs, besides playing a whale of a game in all respects. Neither team scored in the first half of the game, and the battle was just about even. Dubach started off like a whirlwind and staged a drive that reached deep into Tiger territory soon after the starting whistle, but poor generalship cost the visitors a touchdown. The Dubach quarterback kept calling for forward passes, regardless of the fact that the team was penalized twice because of failures, and the aerial attack wasn’t functioning. The ball finally W'ent over on Neville’s 12-yard line. From that point until the half, it was an even battle, with neither team threatening seriously. Neville made one first down in the first period and two in the second. while Dubach made two in each quarter. On the first play after the kickoff at the half, Neville scored its first touchdown. Dubach kicked to the 11- vard line and Manteris returned it to j the 27-yard line, where he was forced out of bounds. On the first play, Basco slipped through a hole at left tackle and, W'ith fine interference, had little difficulty getting clear. He raced all the way for a score. The try for extra point failed. Dubach came right back and tied the .score. A Neville fumble forced Pierce to kick from his 4-yard line, and the kick was returned to Neville's 20-yard line. Colvin gained six yards around right end and then Hinkie barged through a hole at left guard and sprinted the remaining 14 yards for a touchdown. The kick was wide ana the score was deadlocked at 6-all. The Tigers then started another drive that placed the ball in Dubach's I territory but the locals were unable to j go over and were forced to kick. Du- j | bach returned the boot and Manteris gathered it in on his 40-yard line. He shook off a couple of ambitious tacklers and running behind Martin, skirted the east sideline for 40 yards and the Tigers’ second touchdown, j The Neville team made its third j | and last score soon after the start of the fourth period. After the Tigers had halted a Dubach rally that had pushed the ball up to the locals’ 20{ yard line, Martin dropped back and i punted to the visitors’ 15-yard line. W. Green It was a beautiful boot. “Butch’’ was . Bagwell ! standing on his own five-yard line Hammom | and he sent the ball sailing down the field for 77 yards. Dubach punted on first down and again Manteris took i the ball in mid-field and again with Martin running his interference for \ him, sprinted 50 yards for a touch- j down. A drop kick for the extra point failed. The remainder of the period was fought out on even terms and the i game ended with the ball in Dubach’s I passcssion on the 50-yard line. Hinkie and R. C. Colvin were the most consistent ground gainers tor Dubach and this pair also constituted an aerial threat. Mount, Davis and Schuler appeared best in the Dubach line. The entire Neville team functioned The Lions of Ouachita Parish High school will attempt to make it four straight w’hen they tackle the Delhi Boars at Forsythe park tonight. The game will start promptly at 7:45 o’clock, it w'as announced last night. The Delhi eleven has been working out for the past three weeks and is in excellent shape for the tilt with Ouachita's strong squad. They held the Crowville Bulldogs to a tie at the Rayville fair last week and came out of that contest in great shape. Although the Lions are expected to come through victorious, the scrapping team of Bears has promised to make it interesting for their Class A foes, according to word from Delhi. Coach Ben Rush said last night that he would make several changes in his lineup tonight. David Pace, who has been playing a bang-up game at center will be shifted to right tackle and Poulan will take his place in the midle of the line. Youngblood will go to left tackle and the balance of the line will remain unchanged. Pete Rasbury and Nelson Bland will be kept out of tonight's game on account of injuries. Rasbury received an injured shoulder in last week’s fame against the McGehee^Owl* mu S the injury has not heeled, be kept on the sidelines with ft wrenched back. Howard Honeycutt, who broke in with the Lion» last week when when Rasbury was forced out, will again take the backfield star’s place in the starting lineup. Lynn McGuffy, Ouachita’s speed merchant, will start at quarter la place of Bland. Brooks Owen end Harry Stron will be back at half and fullback, respectively. Coach Rush said last night that although he expected his team to wia tonight, he will not take any chaneeft of the Bears staging an upset. Ht expects a close game, he said. Officials for the game will be "Gunboat” Smith, referee, and Benny Swayze, umpire. The other official» have not yet been selected. Coach Rush said he was undecided whether or not to schedule a game for next week-end. The Lions have an open date but the mentor may give the squad a rest, ow'ing to the fact that they meet Haynesville thft following week. The Haynesvill« game, which will be played here, is expected to be the hardest game on the Ouachita schedule.
