jailis Rangers Coach To Have Free Hand; But Who He Will Be Is Far From Settled pa)las-(/P)-Who will coach the* Dallas Rangers, newest 'club in the National Football League, proW ably won't tK known for a month. But ^hpever he is he'll have com- pleU charge and do all the trading ' and buying of players, directors of the club said today! This despite the fact that he ipay have as many as 25 bosses-r- ihareholderE in th'e club. " Giles Miller, Dallas textile.ex- ecutive, disclosed that although V. business manager of the club iypuld be named as soon as pps- ijble, it rrjigh't be March 1 before 'the coach is selected. The organization, w|iich now has 1$ shareholders, already is considering a number pf men for the'job. At a meeting last night, ·everal new names popped up: Bob Neyfand of Tennessee; Paul Bryant of Kentucky; flick Todd; Bfair Cherry, former coach at 'Texas; and Be'rnie Bierman, .for- jner coach, of Minnesota. Names that cropped up in «ar]fer speculation included Sammy Baugh, Washington Redskins quarterback; Jimmy Phelan, last year's New York Yank coach; Otis Douglas, head coach at Arkansas ·114, former member of the Philadelphia Eagles; and Curly Lambeau, long-time head man at Green Bay. SWC.Players Wanted "The coach wiii run the team and will make all deals and trades," Miller said! But he added that every effort would be made to get Southwestern players on the club. " "By adding a few players, keep- Ing the basis of what we have/ and being careful about the selection of the coach, we think we'll have a stem-winder of a team," Miller declared. The directors said they figured It would cost in excess of a half- million dollars to operate the club here in J952 and that an average attendance of 25,000 would be necessary to meet the expense. Another matter o£ policy adopted was that there would be no line drawn as to race, creed or color, meaning that Negro players may be used on the team. There now are three Negroes on the Yanks roster. .The league bought the Yanks franchise lor $300,000, including $200,000 to pay off the lease on Yankee Stadium in New York. Miller said lie would go to New York Monday to confer with Prank Fitzgerald, general manager of the Yanks who is being considered for business manager of the Hangers. He will go to Philadelphia Tuesday to wind un the deal Vith Bert Bell, league president. Fiahts Last Niqht tt nt l»oclalri Prcil (By The Awociated Presa).

Top regular bout on Jersey Joe RAISES SIGHTS Hurley Declines Congressional Support For Matthews' Career W a s h i n g U M / P j - H a r r y Matthews, a leading lightweight contender was 'Under congressional pressure to sign up for a title fight with champion Joey Maxim. ' But Matthews' manager. Jack Hurley, said in Seattle they are after bjgger game now -- heavyweight champion Joe Walcott. Sen. Cain (R-Wash) said last nicht that unless Matthews accepts a ''generous" International Boxing Club offer to fight Maxim, he (Cain) may. withdraw his Senate resolution that was frankly designed to force the match. Cain explained that when he and Sen. Walker (R-Idaho) introduced the unusual resolution last year they honestly felt the IBC was discriminating against Matthews by refusing to give him a chance at the title. The resolution urged an investigation of IBC as a monopoly "for refusisng legitimate challengers an opportunity to fight." It is one-of the rare cases in which boxing was put on the mat by Congress for failure to give logical contenders a chance at a title. Cain told a hastily-called ringside news conference at a local fight, arena that IBC has /made Matthews a generous offer, but that the Pacific Northwest fighter's manager had turned it down without explanation. In Seattle, manager Hurley thanked the senators "for their interest in Harry's career" but said«his big goal now is a match with heavyweight champion Walcott. B/ MXAN A. OHJUUn. «. Coach Glenn Slokenberry, close student of the game of basketball, says the Bulldogs have let down somewhere. He probably has an idea that some members of the team are suffering from that old malady--press clip- pingitis . . . although he didn't say so "on the record." He also didn't say just what phase of the game was suffering, either, but one set of statistics tends to put the blame on the defense. In their last four games, of which they've won throe, Fayetteville has scored 57-field to their opposition's 66. For the Bulldogs that's an average of less than 10 a game compared to the opposition's average of almost 19 per game. It's surprising in view of that set of figures that Fayetteville has won three of the four. In the four games, previous to the ones figured above (Tulsa Will Rogers, Springfield, Harrison and Fort Smith) Fayetteyillc scored 58 field goals while allowing the opposition just 41. On the offense, then, it would appear that things are about normal. But defensively the 'Dogs have allowed 25 more field goals in the last (our games than they did In the four just proceeding. That amounts to better than 12 points a game giving up to weaker opposition. "Do you plan any changes?" Was a question asked Stokenber- ry yesterday. "Maybe!" Was the reply. To- dav and 'tomorrow will tell." Walcott-Jackle card. Burke exhibition An outstanding flavor -- Junge's Roman Meal Bread. 11-19-lf SMILE/ Hkkey Feels A Good Offense Is A Good Defense Wants Bills To Establish Early Margin Of Safety . St. Louis - (IP) T Coach Eddie Hickey of St. Louis University has a few points to make about basketball--just enough to keep his Bill- ikens free of any more one-point defeats. Th.rce of their four losses tills season have been single-point hcartbreakers. The time has come, says Hickcy, to dispense wifh these ncnr misses. From ' Hi'tkcy's student-eye view, the only way in which this may bu accomplished is to -"Rain and.jnaintain a margin of safety In the score." To Hickey that means emphasis on offense,_an old specialty with the team he'has coached. "It we can keep our offense go- 'infl and then develop some heady ball-handling to augment our defense, won't have to take the risk of gambling late in the game," he explains. Whether St. Louis has mastered the "margin of safety" technique may be determined Saturday night whefl the Bills are hosts to Oklahoma A. and M. to decide the leadership of the Missouri Valley Co-ference. Fayetteville plays Bentonviile tomorrow night at Bentonviile, and there may be a new starter or two on the team. "No one has his position cinched." said Stok- enberry yesterday. "If they don't do their job they can all be replaced." The Arkansas Razorbacks were, hard al it yesterday, too. The squad went through a hard scrimmage under the direction of coach Presley, Askew, and the results were not too satisfactory. A scoring punch was still obviously lacking nnd the solution to tljat problem is as perplexing as the riddle of the Sphinx. Bulletin The girls' basketball team of the Huntsville State Vocational School won Its first game In the A. A. V. tournament in Little Rock this morning, defeat- Ing the Midway (iris 15-14. The tourney IB being held In Robinson Memorial Auditorium. The Huntsviile girls will play again tomorrow morning at 10:60, meeting'the winner of today'* Dover-Jud«onla match. Virginia Simpson of Hunts- vine was high scorer of today's game with 11 point*. Melba Waddell of Midway wai high far the losers with six. Bulldog B-Team To Play At Van Buren The Fayetteville B-team, a winner and a loser in two games with Van Buren, travels to the Pointer court this afternoon for a game with the Pointer reserves. A fourth game will be played in Fayetteville at a later date. The Fayettevllle club has won two games since dropping the opening tilt of the West Fork tourney to Farmington. 'Dog Bees downed Rogers, in a game at Rogers, and dumped a Fayetteville High All-Star team Monday, 58-31. Alfred'Taylor.scored' M points in the latter game for the B-team, while Max Powers,' paced the "Z" team with 14. The rumor that Coach Otis Douglas might ba the new coach of the Dallas Rangers professional football team may not have surprised most fnlks but it did one assistant coach at the University. Dick Humbert, the well-liked end and defensive coach of the Porkers spent Tuesday afternoon completing arrangements to buy a new house on York Street. He just got the deal closed when he picked up a newspaper and was greeted by the head-line: "Douglas Rumored A Candidate for Dallas Coaching Job." Such is the life of a coach in this day and age. Advertise In file TIMFS--It pay* Lovellefte Pressed For Scoring Lead By Petjit New York-(/P)-Clyd e Lovellette of Kansas holds the major college basketball scoring leadership, but only by a scant one-tenth of a point, according to figures, released today by the National Collegiate Bureau. Through games of last Saturday, Lovellette had averaged 26.5 points per game to keep .the No. 1 spot for the sixth straight week. Bobby Pettit of Louisiana State was hoi on Lovellettc's trail with a 26.4 mark. Lovellette lias poured in 345 points iri 13 games while the six- foot nine-Inch LSU sophomore has hit for 317 in 12 contests.

Two events have been won by lewcomers to golf fame, Ted Kroll of New Hartford, N. Y., winning the $10,000 San Diego Open last week end, and Tommy 3olt of Durham, N. C., grabbing the rich $17,500 Los Angeles Open early this month. Today 130 or more players were slated to lee off at the Phoenix Country Club, a par 36-35-71 test over 6,578 yards. Most of the familiar figures of :he sport are here, including Jimmy Demaret, Lloyd Mangrum, Dutch Harrison, Lawson Little, Jim Ferrier and Cary Mlddiecoff. Also eligible after successful qualifying were t'iree Negro play- er.s*, Ted Rhodes pf Nashville and Lps Angeles, and' Bill Spiller, Los Angeles, both pros, and Eura] Clark, Los Angeles amateur. Joe Louis, who spearheaded successful move to gain entries foi Negroes in PGA co-sponsored events, tried but failed to qualify Harvard To Ignore Grid Gate Receipts Cambridge?, Mass. V (/P) - Future Harvard football schedules will disregard gate receipts and athletic deficits will be met by the faculty's budget, President James U. Conant said in his annual report to the university's Board ol Overseers. "We have arranged for the coming football seasons without regard to gate receipts and provided for lighter schedules," the famed educator said last night. He reported tho Crimson's 195051 intercollegiate and intramura athletic programs resulted in a ne expense in.excess of $350,000. "This $um in not to be rcgardec as an athletic deficit," Dr. Conan said. "It is as much a proper charge against the resources of the faculty as the maintenance of a library or a laboratory."

Also to his credit Is the fact that Bill Is not yet a year old. If the aw of averages affects him, he still has about 14 years to pick up iev phrases and p\it them into working English. Bill Is not one to repeat words after t would-be teacher, like a irlm child. He has a mind of his own. If he Is told to say "Hi," he s more apt to come out with 'What's up, Doc?" or "What doln 1 , Kid?' 1 Neither Is he one to let his owners think ha can't say a certain word. It was nearly New Year's Day before he finally conquered ;he word Christmas, so he dropped t a f t e r a day or so and has been merrily faying, "Happy New Year,' ever since. irtlo Trouble Actually, though, the frisky bird ha? been stumpod op one attempt In splto of the fact that he carries on as though he d|d not realize it. Mr, Watts, a Springdalc radio technician, Is a ham. radio operator after office hours. Almost Invariably he finds BUI perched pn his shoulder when he sits down to the set and begins, "CQ, CQ, CQ. this is W5NIH In Bprlngdale." Now, even for a psrrakccl (Sometimes onlled paroquet), that many letters in one sentence requires a great deal of effort, on the part "! the memory. Bill solved the problem by the simple proms of elimination. .He. calif,: OCq,' CQ Sprlngdale," and because the sound must start with ' the 's»rn twist of the 1 tongue, he ·ometlmei atjds for variety, I'CQ, CQ, CQ k|ss me." When D. C., us the bird ealls hie master, mak« a contact on the radio, Bill Is anxious to talk, to "the boys," who usually begin the broadcast with, "HI, D. C. «nd Bill." Bill was four weeks old when he left tli» (relit family of pirrn- keeti owned by Mrs. Edr* HiHo« MY FayoHeville--.Y/ho ha.«, develfp*!. a profitable buslnetii from '»'·»!«· of the birds.

No Showoff, BUI Like a child, Bill l» V* quietest when Mrs. Waits Y, like him to show off by talking a guest.
