Fayetteville^High^And Harrison Tangle In Important District One Jilt Visitors Rated One Of Best Teams In Area Bulldog B-Teom To ; Meet Van Buren In : Preliminary Game Fayettevillt Hifh School faces t ttrong Harrison quintet tonight at 8 o'clock at Root Gymnasium. Th« ganit. is regarded as a key to the probable outcome of district One since both teams are highly rated in this section of the state. Harrison has a well balanced and.experienced team with seven lettermen on the squad. And significant is the fact that two lettermen from · last season's strong team are being used as reserves thii year. Ai usual the Bulldogs will be at a height disadvantage. Harrison will hold.slightly better than an inch per man edge. Recognizing thia the 'Dogs have worked harr on rebounding since cage drills opened this season and Coach Glenn Stokenberry has stressed .this during recent workouts. Against taller teams from Tulsa and Springfield, Mo., the Fayetteville five was able to hold its own in taking the ball off the hack- board. And tonight rebounding will probably in large measure determine the success .of Fayette- vllle's bid for its fourth victorj in a row. Fsyettevllle will start Its regular fivesomr of Russ McConnel! Billy Parker, Ray Barnes, Ken · Crudup and Bass Trumbo. The Fayetteville High band, under the direction of R. W. Willis will be on hand, and a preliminary B-team scheduled. The B-game' will pit .Harry Vandergriff's Bulldog reserves tgainst Hhe Van Buren B-team, coached by Bill Lobdill, former Fsyetteville junior high coach. The B-team game will start at · :30 o'clock. Newcomers To Golf Trail May Be Ones To Watch In 1952 Lo* Angeles-(#)-Newcomers to golfing fame may be th* players to Watch as the nation's leading professionals inaugurate the 1952 tournament season today in the first round of the 26th annual Los Angeles Opem 'Such tournament name players as the defending champion, Lloyd Mangrum; or Gary Midd-'.ecoff, Henry Ransom or Ellsworth Vines, figure as the men to beat in the battle for the $17.500 prize money. But golf observes, casting about for new names to freshen the tournament picture, look for a determined challenge by such pros as Fred Hnwkins, El Paso; Joe Kirkwoqd.

Arkomos, Friday, January 4, 1952 Kentucky Restricts Active Grid Recruiting To State "Golfer of the Year," Ben Hogan. · four-time winner of the Los Angeles event. Also absent was a two-time winner here. Sam Snead. Lexington, Ky.-O/P)-Football recruiting was restricted tfday at the University of Kentucky to its own back yard. Tn«r* is stil! a hearty welcome awaiting any out-of-state player but he must voluntarily apply for a scholarship. The school will make no effort to recruit prospective grldders who live outside the commonwealth. The maximum number of scholarships to non- Kentucklans will be five a year. Coach Paul Bryant announced the change in the recruiting policy a few minutes after his squad re- Iurne4 from'Dallas and its Cotton Bowl victory over Texas Christian. Bryant said thf. idea was" his own. it applied only to football, and "we have concluded that the best interest will now be served by a change in this policy." Ken- lucky in the past has (tone far afield in lining up football talent. "We are confident," Brvant added, "that if other institutions will follow this plan, all the evils attendant on recruiting will be ended." Effect Pondered With de-emphasis of collefliate football being talked in some quarters, observers pondered the effect, if jny, the Kentucky plan might have elsewhere. Could It be the forerunner of a new trend? Would the plan be brought before the National Collegiate Athletic Association meeting next week? Could some states sunply the talent for local demands? Bryant drew praise from several coaches in the Somheastern Conference, but nont indicated he would follow the Kentucky proposal 100 per cent. Out-of-state players have been the bloodstream in Kentucky's rise in six years from a Southeastern Conference doormat to national prominence. Bryant spoke of the wide-range recruiting Kentucky has employed and said, "Whatever merit this program had it has subjected the university and many other institutions to criticism from colleges and universities in neighboring states. If persisted in, the good relations between K«ntucky and her neighbors would deteriorate and the good name of Kentucky would suffer ..." The mentor gave a vote of confidence' to Kentucky schoolboy grid prospects. There are about 100 schools in the state that play football. The new plan, Bryant explained, is effective at ones. Bryanll said it would take four years to determine the result. rr Bowling CittlntM Ltagw Stump Furniture Company mnv^d In (ront making a sweep over Harm Conntruction Co.

In Uw TIMCd--II ptr* Big Mo" Makes North Favorite In Senior Bowl Hero Of Maryland's Win Over Tennessee Feared By Rebels .Mobile, Ala.-(/p)-T n c k 1 e Pug Pcarman of Tennessee looked across a football field at fullback Ed Modzrlewskl of Maryland and said grimly, "I hope somebody ctl!£ (he horns off that wild buil before we play him again Saturday." Horned or de-horned, Maryland's "Rig Mo" runs and bulls again Salurday in the Senior Bowl. In the Sugar Bowl, Modzelewski rolled up 153 yards through Tennessee's national champions and Maryland packaged its first major bowl victory, 28-13. The win came as a shock to Tennessee and many Marylanders. But not tn the "Mighty Mo 1 ' "1 thought all along we could take Tennessee It sure fell good When we did," he said. The coal mining kid from West Natrona, Pa., was elected the Sugar Bowl's best player. From the way he's carrying on in practice he might be headed for the best player job in the Senior Bowl. Fifty of the finest college players from every section of the country turn professional in the Senior Bowl. They arc divided as equally as possible into two teams -- one railed the North and the other the South. They arc ordered by their processional coaches to go at each other fnr all they are worth. Players on the winning side earn .?500. Players for the losing side get ,?40n. While Modzelewski and Marylanders Bob Ward and Bob Shcm- onskl prepared for the South squad, the underdog Rebels are trying to sharpen their timing. Coach Steve Owen's team was latf in assembling because several members played in bowls. On the Rebel team besides Pearman ar Hank Lauricclla, Gordon Polofsky and Ted Daffer--all Ten- ncsseeans who took the Sugar Bowl licking. Says All-America tailback Lauricella: "Tennessee just wasn't up for the Sugar Bowl gamp. I sure hope we'll be ready fnr this one Saturday. I'd like to kind a make up for not doing so well Tuesday."

Calif.-f/D-Jack Dempsey said today he is negotiating for a light-heavyweight title fifihl between Joey Maxim and Harry Matthews in Seattle sometime next summer.

Texas Christian Rated Team To Beat In SWC Cage Race By ALLAN GILBERT. JR. T. C. U. is the team to beat in the 1952 rare for the Southwest Conference basketball title. The Honied FroRs. a strong and experienced crew, have pet their MRhls on Raining an undisputed rnRc t i l t e to RO with the SWC fontball trophy won last fall. The concensus among the loop's observers Is thnt while T. C. U. Is the team to beat no one seems capable of doing It. The Frogs, coached by the able "fluster" Drannon, are the only really fast-breaking unit in the Southwest nnd have biiKled loose from all but one team this year-- t h n t a narrow loss to M a n h a t t a n nn iii Eastern sv/ing early in the season. They've won I I of 12 game.-:. The FroRs were specially convincing in t h e i r consistent performances during the conference holiday tournament at Dallas preceding the Cotton Bawl. The Frogs breezed past a good Riee team, 69-57; showed Rood stamina and cootne: : s in outlasting a fine Vandeibilt club, M-49; and then walloped Texas A. and M., 65-3S in the final?. The Aggies ruled us a likely contender on pre-season estimates. Depth nnd experience arc keys to the T. C. U. prospects. Only one man was lost from the squad last year-- Bill Elliot, a reserve. The starting fivesome Is R group that has been Intact since Brannon was appointed head cage coach at T. C. U. four year* ago. In fncl eight member* of the T. C. U. team this season were members of the Frog freshman rrew that was undefeated in 12 contests in 1047-48. Bnlsterlng this core of seniors are three Junior lettermen (a total of 11 lettermen) nnd six promising sophomores. At'Peak Speed Coach Hrannon, wlio believes in fast-breaking all the way, appears to have the material to keep hts attack rolling at peak speed throughout a 40-minute contest. And the strong bench en- ab!f a - T. C. U, to use a defense thnt is exceptionally tight. T h e Frogs have ranked among the top Ufl teams In the country defenalve- ly this season which is unusual for a fast-breaking team. ' The starters for the Christians include Harvey Kromme, lift year's captain, 6-3, and Ted Reynolds, 6-2, at forwards; Georie McLeod, this season's captain, 6-7, center; 'nd John Kthridgt, 5-8, and John Swaim, fi-0, or Bryan WANGER'S TARGET RECOVERING Keet up wltn the nme ihe Tlmn Itlly. cTf hnr, , ° m ' bu " cl WOUBd '" ** « roln ·' h " Brentwooa, calif, home, nctors agent Jcnnmgi Unf hold. han4a with hla wlft U his altorncy, Jnko Ehriich, looks on.

He supplements this v/Jth a good set- shot from outside to rank ns the Frog's most dangerous scorer.

In the conference tournament finals he scored 27· points the Aggies' fine-Center Walt Da via proving his abilities. He han one of the loop's best hook, shots, and led hi· team in scoring last seii- ·on. Fromme anrl Reynolds, the forwards, are not as tall ;ia the conference avcniRe at (1-3 and 0-2. but make up tor it with their *pfed and mobility. They ranked /.(·fund nnd third in team scoring last season with averages of about 10 point* per game over the ica- son. The £uard spot nex. to Ethridge is contested for by Swaim, KU- palrlck and Hoyt. There 1* little to choose from between them. They nre all good. Last Reason the Porkers played T, C. U. twice losing 42-31 and 52-42. The Frogs went on to tie with Tcxiu and Texas A. and M. far the loop title. T. C.
