(Courier News Phote) Arktnut SportttfM Jhis Is Year Wyatt Must Get That Bumper Freshman Crop By CARL BELL Anoclated ftea Sports Writer Chances art that Bowden Wyatt right now is at the crossroads of success and failure as head football coach at the University of Arkansas. This is talent roundup time in college football — that period between the fall playing season and spring practice when coaches are scouting around for the top high school seniors. And Wyatt needs another bumper crop of freshmen gridders next fall to promise winning varsity teams in 1956 and '57 — the last two seasons in his current five-year contract at Arkansas. WINNINGEST TEAM — Holland High School's girls team has stacked up 36 consecutive victories in a win streak which began back in February of 1952. They are (first row, from left) Gladine Lahue, Nadine Lahue, Wanda Samford, Shirley Photo) Henthcock; (second row) Ann Neal, Joann Malone, Tabby Bell. Shirley Childers; (third row) Wilene Burlison, Phylls McCrary, Talthia Smith, Bonnie Duvall and Patsy Majors. (Courier New* Coached this year by R. O. Malone, they are well on their way to equaling last year's scoring mark of 1,379 point 1 ;. In 13 games, they have scored 634 points to the opposition's 395. Perhaps the top girl basketball player of southeast Missouri and northeast Arkansas is Bonnie Du- I vail. She has scored 348 points this year for a 31.6 average. This would indicate she'll better her record of last year when she scored 601 points and hit an even 75 percent of her free throw attempts. Miss Duvall is followed by Shirley Childress with a 13.7 average nnd Patsy Majors with a 10.1 average. Last year, the team averaged 64.9 points a game while the opposition had a 34.4 point average. Monday, the Holland girls begin participation in the Warden Invitational tournament. The promising: bunch of boys h has coming up from last year yearling squad will be seniors 1656. The youngster* he brings i next September will be junior that year and seniors in '57. Just In Won-Lost Bear in mind that the success o failure about which we've bee talking is success or failure In th won-lost columns. University off clals, including President John T -,,Caldwell, are quite happy wit i the straight forward, hard work Ing Wyatt, and no one has tol him he has to win to keep hi Job. In fact, no one tells Bowde to do anything—and that goes fo the monied boosters who can giv coaches such awful headftches Mr .Wydtt, in » nice, polite way Is the boss of Razorback football After all, that's what he's paid t< be . Anyway, qualified observers fel Wyatt was successful last year— not because he won three' of 1 games but becusae he put spiri RITZ THEATRE Manila, Ark.

Wyatt will call his Razorbacks together for spring practice March 3—Oiark mountain weather permitting. Can't Learn Much Just how much spring practice will mean Is problematical. The sophomores will lenrn much they need to know; holdovers from last fall should improve and Wyatt will experiment with some players at new positions. But it isn't likely that the spring drills will give any accurate line on how the Porkers will stack up neat fall. Wyatt is hopeful of bring- ing in several junior college transfers next September, and, while they won't have the benefit of spring practice, some of them may make the first two teams. Little Bobby Proctor came in from a Mississippi Junior College last Bummer and very quickly grabbed a starting assignment at a big man's position—blocking back. Too often, of course, Junior college stars lose a lot of their glitter when they step into faster company. Rose, Too Glen Rose is in the same boat with Wyatt. He is having to rebuild the Arkansas basketball team, suffering with some of his inherited material while bringing up new prospects. Big Glen rounded up the best of the state's high school roundball- ers of last year. Put together as a man team, they are a losing outfit. Some of the individul frosh expected to be tops are disappointing; others are living up to expectations. "I don't particularly care whether the freshman win a lot of games," says Rose. "Just so we get two or three good varsity boys off the freshman team each year I'll be happy." A big portion of the current Porkor varsity will graduate this spring. Which means Rose will have more scholarships to pass out fo this season's high school seniors. The problem is whether there'll be enough of these who are the kind Rose needs.
