High Hopes Held For Porkers As SWC Grid Drills Open The long journey that ends' January 1, 1953, in Dallas' Cotton Bowl opened officially today for seven 'members of the Southwest Conference. Optimism in various degrete pervaded the league's football camps, with hortes at Arkansas at an extremely high level. "This is the year," Porker faithful contend. If Otis Douglas, mammoth ex-pro, is to see his program at Arkansas succeed this is defitely the year. It is his. third season on a thrte-year contract arid it comes at a time when his industrious and far-flung recruiting program seems best fit to pay off. The Razorback personnel appears to be at a 'peak, with talent, experience and^epth in satisfactory proportion* The Porkers were to take the field, following a preliminary meeting at the Field House, at about 9:15 this morning with two hours of activity planned for the firft session. .Included -on the morning's agenda were individual blocking exercises, pass offense arid defense practfce and ijunting and place-kicking drills. Twiee A Day The Razorbacks will engage m practice twice a day until school opens and the afternoon session today was scheduled;, for about 2:30. More individual work was planned with an increased tempo in blocking drills. C6nta# work, of » rugged. variety, was on the card too. This scrimmaging, however, was to be reserved for the players who oc- cuoy spots on the third, fourth and fifth teams. The coaching staff explained that it wants to give all the candidates a chance to make the team. Boys .on the first two units earned their positions during the spring training routine. Now, if some of the players deserve a higher ranking an the team they will get that opportunity during the contact work in the early st*«es of this fall's workouts. Leading the Razorbacks up . to the practice hill this morning were co-captains Dean Pryor and Buddy Sutton, a pair of backs who are expected to be key men in what is considered -one of the finest offensive and defensive backfield combinations in Arkansas history. Great faith is being placed in the starting offensive lineup with Lamar McHan at quarterback. Lewis Carpenter at fullback and Sutton and Jack Troxell as the halfbacks. Trace of Doubt With those four in the backfield Arkansas will have · world of running power. Some traco of doubt exists as to Megan's ability to take his place among the top palters in what is ftearfullyt regarded as a passing conference. However, McHan is entering only hit junior year having earned all* conference honors as a sophomore. and his passing can be expected to improve. ' Defensively the Porkers are In equally good position as far as backfleld strength is concerned. Pryor. Floyd Saaely. .Tohnny Cole a" d Msel Nix are all returning to f jll these soots. In the line there aopears to be (food site, speed, strength and denth. The center oost. where bis B6b Griffin held forth Jast year, is the hole that will be hardest to plug. But there is a minimum, of concern over this as the four leading candidates for the position are capable. _ "Arky" Vaughan Drowns In California lake Alturas, Calif.-«P)-Joseph Floyd "Arky" Vaughn, 40, retired National League baseball star, swam 65 yards through a deep, rhill mountain lake, but drowned 20 feet from shore late Saturday. A friend; Bill Wimer. 45, a logger. drowned with Vaughan after their fishing boat capsized in Lost Lake, 30 miles east of this North- 1 east California town. Their bodies were recovered Sunday. Verne Wheeler, a witness from shore, said the two men wen un- jer at almost the jame time, only 80 feet from safety. Besidents sfiy iost Lake, in the crater of »n wtinct volcano, has never been sounded. There is a steep drop- jff at shore.

And hit myriad slock of pitches may well spell a fourth straight American League pennant for the New York Yankees. Lopat, hindered ill season by shoulder miseries, turned in hit most impressive performance of the season yeterday in pitching the pace-setting Yanks to a 8-1 three-hit triumph over the Washington Senators. The morale- boosting victory enabled the Yanks to protect their two-game lead over th* Cleveland Indians, 6-3 conquerers of the Chicago White Sox. *The crafty lefthander, a 21-f ame winner last year, permitted only live balls to be hit to the outfield.' Garcia Stop* ChlMX Husky Mike Garcia turned the I White Sox back on seven hits to hang up his 17th victory for Cleveland. Al Rosen, with three runs baited in on two singles and double, and Larry Doby with a twb- run homer his 28th, led tn* Cleveland assault against Billy Pierce. Boston's third-place Red Sox and Philadelphia s fourth-place Athletics divided a double-header, the Sox winning the opener, 11-1, and the A's the nightcap, 2-0, SI.

The Red Sox lowered the boom on Bobby Shantz, the A's 22-game winner, in the first game at Philadelphia. Shantz was staggered for 10 hits and seven runs in seven innings with Clyde Vollmer's three-run homer the big blow. International Baseball Game Has 21 Errors Rome - UP) - Europe's first In- ternationa] baseball game, in which Spain defeated Italy 7-3, resembled an American sand-lot game in several respects. Twenty-one; trrors were made, 13 by_ Italy. The game ran three and one-half hours, causing many of the 15,000 fans to walk out utter the seventh Inning grumbling that the game was too log. At one stag* of the (ame yesterday, following a. short rhubarb, the- announcer told the fans "not to be angry with any decisions made because baseball is a technical game." Failure t6 return a ball hit into the stands meant ejection from the park.

When Old Case finally sticks his choice on the dugout post with n mun'- o' pieces of adhesive tnpc, they crowd around to read it like kids around a Chrittmm tree. Up to this point in the American League race, Casey has thought up some 65 different ways of arranging the first eight men in his batting array.- It Is not believed that any other manner ever came close to equaling this figure.

Linemen are of primary corfdern, according to the Bulldog coach. He sees the potential for a fair back- fleld, headed Up by a talented returnee from last year'i team -Paul Shaffer, who saw considerable service a signal caller in IBS]. Backing up Shaffer is a sophomore -- Vernon Anglin -who was a hot article last fall. Anglin was the sparkplug of Sprlngdtle's undefeated and un- threatened freshman team last year. He is rated as 3 red comer and Voss admits he expects some help from him. Coach Voss says he feels the 34 boys out for drills will form a stronger defensive than offensive alignment. There are several big boys whose lack of experience will limit their offensive usefulness, but whose size should aid materially in bolstering the defense. Voss picks Rogers as the strongest team In District One. with Van Burcn rated second by a scant margin over Fayetteville. The Fayettevllle line will be strong according to Voss, but will lack the depth of the Pointers. Springdale opens Its schedule on September 12, opposing Cassville, Mo., on the home field. The following week Voss takes his team to Fayetteville for the battle of the bulldogs. The Springdale schedule: Sept. 12, Cassvllle, home. 19, Fayetteville, there: Sept. 26, Harrison, there.
