Sports Roundup Evashevski Orations Sparkle By GAYLE TALBOT NEW YORK (AP) — It is doubtful that the football banquet season, which is now approaching its peak across the land, will produce a more forthright speaking guest than Forest Evashevski, the Iowa coach, whose team played that memorable 14-14 tie With Notre Dame. We have not been advised of Eva- to be learned from playing football shevski's one-night rates, but if is the desire to win. Much tins said for being ft gnnd loser, but It's much easier to be come a good loser than a gracious winner." Evashevski attributed much of his team's success the past season to three Negro .sophomores from Steubenville, Ohio—guard Calvin Jones, end Frank Oilliam and halfback Ed Vincent. the remarks attributed to him by Tom Mercy of the Flint, Mich, journal after a recent high school gathering in that city are a fair sample, then the former Michigan blocking back Is worth all the tariff will bear.

Most of the ones who seem to know ' just what should be done to cure all our football ills are men who never played the game and don't understand the sport. "The first thing most of them 1 want to do is to take emphasis off j •winning. They list that burning desire to win as one of the evils of athletic. If you don't emphasize winning, there's only one thing left to emphasize, and that's losing. If it ever comes to that, then they cnn put the game up for grabs and I'll get out.

But it's all in fun, he says, and he never worries about by some sports writers in the ' it. ty and the points Georgia needed for an 8-7 victory. "It. could have happened to anyone," Riegels declared, "but I wish it hadn't ha-oened to me." The boner came just after the teams changed goals at the start or, "but he plays like 23 arainst us. We can't seem to stop the guy. "And Jagade." Parker continued, "hes one of the toughest In the league-to bring down. Not Even One Parker must drool when he thinks of this one-two punch. He hasn't even had one full-time fullback all season. Bob Hoernschmeyer, normally a halfback, will start at fullback against the Brownies. Gene Gedman, a rookie from. Indiana Univer sity. will fill Hoernschmeyer's halfback spot. Hoernschemeyer, an eight-year ! veteran, had the greatest year of | his career—and it came at just j the right time for the Lions, who j were in desperate need of running strength. Harder Out Age suddenly caught up ^vith Pat Harder, last, year's regular full; back, and he was placed on the inactive list in the middle of the season. That left the Lions without a top fullback threat. Ollie Cline. the former Ohio : Stater, was tried at the position : but was too slow. Lew Carpenter, i a rookie from Arkansas, gave it a [ whirl but his inexperience was ap- | parent. Hunchy was Good Then. Parker turned to Hoernschemeyer, who responded with 1 solid, if not sensational play. He j led the team in ground gaining for the fourth straight year, with 432 yards, and was the third best Jagade led the Brownies Mth 344 yards. He bulls into the line like a man trying to break down a door with his shoulder. Motley, used in spots, gained 161 yards. He was the Browns' most potent ground weapon in last year's playoff game, won by the Lions, 17-7. Air Battle In Blue-Gray MONTGOMERY, Ala. . (^—Judging, from the practice e work up to now, this year's renewal of the Blue-Gray grid contest'will be one of the most air minded of them all.
