"Our football plr.yers have to study and have to lake a respectable academic schedule. "Of course, this is true of all teams in the Southwest Conference, but we are the only one which is a member of the North Central and its requirements are a little tougher," he said. Not Prepared The handsome Arkansas mentor, who has rejuvenated a sagging; football program at Fayetteville, Intimated that most of the boys he gets are not prepared for college academic assignments. herd you into study halls and b< sure you do your work. You'll on your own," he said. In informal discussion following his talk, Wyatt said there is noth ing wrong with the Arkansas foot tell setup that a couple ot good freshman crops won't cure. He told the BBS squad that "i Arkansas is ever to realize its ful potentiality as a football power, i must do so by drawing on the foot ball material in this state." He said he hoped to see some o] the 1953 Chickasaw team enroll ai the university. Films Shown Wyatt's talk highlighted a snappy program honoring the 1953 team which posted a 9-1 record.

Mosley introduced each member of the Chickasaw club and thanked the fans for their support during '53, which he termed the best his club has received. Following the program, some 100 persons watched films of Blytheville's 33-13 victory over Dupont High of Nashville, Tenn., in the Jackson, Tenn., Exchange Bowl.

SMITH (AP) — Otto Graham said in training camp last summer "our spirit is better this year."

Lattner, a pretty fair halfback for Notre Dame, has done football a service not only with his playing ability but with a simple statement that the sport "isn't the most important thing in life." The two-time All America demonstrated again that a football player can also be an intelligent citizen as he accepted the Heisman Trophy as the outstanding college player of the year in New York. Sincere Sure, the good-looking, 21-year- old Chicagoan likes to run, block and tackle. But he doesn't think football is all life has to offer. And he is sincere in attributing his success in the game to his coaches and to his teammates. "Without a good team behind him there is no such thing as a so- called star," Lattner said in accepting the award at the annual banquet at the Downtown Athletic Club. "It's not false modesty but common sense. I wouldn't have been able to do what I did this year without those teammates and the coaches who made it possible." Lattner, who never knew anything but two-way play even in the days of two platoons, paid special tribute to the inspirational guidance of his mother as praise was heaped upon him as the best performer in the year that football returned to limited substitutions. To Service Now The impressive affair was a testing one for the 190-pounder who had sparked his team when It most needed him during the season. But in appearance and in speaking it was the same durable John Lattner whom Coach Frank Leahy had called his "bread and butter" ball carrier. WILL YOUR HOME BE HOT AND COLD THIS WINTER?

After one recent game the coach demonstrated his customary in sight by dropping a remark which coul^ serve as a formula for mo tivating a winner in any line. He made the familiar remark aboui the other team being "up," anc then added, rather in a tone of an afterthought: "But then, I guess we'd be appointed if they weren't."

Jensen, 26, whose long-ball, right - handed hitting strength should fit right in with the friendly left field wall in Fenway Park, batted only .266 last season but he drove in 84 runs and hit 10 homers in spacious Griffith Stadium. Prospects for more player trades weren't too bright today since several of the managers had left or were on the verge of leaving town. Debate on the pension plan however, continued hot and heavy. Frick insisted that Kiner and Reynolds had given their assent to the resolution which is aimed at terminating the pension plan and that the players' attorney, J. Norman Lewis, was in the room when it happened. Reynolds joined Kiner yesterday in denying he ever heard any such resolution, let alone voted on it "I want to go on record that I have not voted to terminate the plan, as has been Implied," he said. "We couldn't vote, anyway because we have no vote in the executive Council meeting. It was my understanding that the main point in the resolution was to appoint a committee to get together and review the pension plan to see f it could be improved. As far as I know, nothing has been done." Frick conceded that the players might not have understood the resolution, which was worded with enough legal phrases to baffle the layman. in office •typewriters?

He made this vow despite the* stunning affront in Atlanta last Wednesday when player representatives Ralph Kiner and Allie Reynolds refused to meet with him because he wouldn't allow them to bring their lawyer along. His statement set the stage for today's joint meeting of major league club owners. They planned to discuss the possibility of either ending the pension plan entirely or turning it over to the players. They will also vote on a number of other player demands. Hardly anybody feels the owners will dissolve the multlmiillon-dol- pension plan even though they are bitter at what they term "defamation of our character." Some, lowever, like Presidents Walter O'Malley of the Brooklyn Dodgers and Tom Yawkey of the Boston Red Sox have expressed willingness to let the players i run the plan themselves. The owners will consider spec! :icaily a resolution passed at the Sept. 29 meeting of the major eagues Executive Council recommending that a committee be set up to study and report on procedure for ending the pension plan. Pension plan problems were discussed yesterday by the owners in separate league meetings. No cisions were announced. There were plenty of other developments yesterday. After several days of swapping nothing but hot air, the clubs finally completed a man-sized player trade. The Washington Senators dealt slugging outfielder Jackie Jensen to the Red Sox for southpaw Maurie McDermott and outfielder Tom Umphlett.
