Arkansas State Teachers College, which shared the championship with Arkansas Tech, and third- place Magnolia A. & M, are concerned %ith the matter of postseason business. The Bears of Teachers College Will play Hardin College ih the Kickapoo Bowl at Wichita Falls, Tex., Friday and the A. & M. Mulridefs are to meet McNeese Junior College ih the CajUn Bowl at Lake Charles, La., Ded. 12. The AIC race went as expected except for, Teachers' winning the co-championship and the low finish of Ouachita teachers, a cellar team a year ago, wasn't given a chance in the pre-season.rankings, while Ouachita was expected to be a leading contender. Under a n6w coach, Howard (Pee Wee) Montgomery, former Bear star and Texarkana, Ark., high school mentbr, Teachers fin- ishpd the regular season with eight (victories and a tie and a perfect conference record . of, six wins. Tech, favored from the start, also was, undefeated in six conference starts but dropped a non-circuit decision to compile an 8-1 record. The only undefeated, untied collegiate^ team in the state was the University of Arkansas' freshman and B squad, which registered six victories and did not compete in the AIC. Little Rock Junior College returned to intercollegiate grid competition this year alter a decade's absence from the scene, compiled a 6-6 record and walloped Coffeyville, Kans., 31-7, in the Coffee Bowl at Coffeyville Thanksgiving Day. In the wlndup of regular season play rlast week, Tech blanked Hendrix, 31:0 .and Teachers whipped the College of the Ozarks, 12-0, to clinch their shares of the top rung Magnolia blasted Arkansas A & M. of Monticello, 33-6, and Ouachita and Henderson battled to a scoreless draw.

And she set there oading and loading and smiling sweet at this and that one, and no jody even made a pass to offer to see her home and along about two j. m. she just sifted away, alone, .ike..a phantom in a Viennese play ; •Mr. Muckcrman, you and me, we haVe had the same dream. Same cast. Same plot, shook up a little. " I bought a battery, Stonei and One. You bought into the Browns. I didn't have no more idea to buy me no ball-players that night than gossakes, that's all I hope. And neither did you. .Well, with me it was like, you know, a .lot of people in a World Series suite and the bathtub full of beer, like always' in tHose days. And a logger named Sam the Gasman, he comes busting in and sheds pint slabs of chicken-cock and Golden Wedding and, it makes a man shiver .to think of it now, how we 'used to used to use ginger ale to neutralize the worm-oil from the still. In a hundred rooms, at the Copley in Boston for the Harvards and the Yales, at the Ritz in Philadelphia, the Commodore, the Drake and those old pigeon-lofts in Washington, the scene was always the same, give or take a few characters. And' always there was a nice-acting, pretty-looking, redheaded, sir-I'm-a-lady kind of lady on the couch. Edna! that was her name! Her lame was Edna, because I re.mem- >cr one night we all put our little ousted heads together and sang 'there is always a girl named Edna." Well, this whincy-voiced party somehow picked on me to buy Lil "Itoner who had been a real good pitcher for the Tigers and had ;one down to Dallas when his term vas up. I said, "No, I don't want to buy him." "Why not!" tis fellow said with glarey look. "Because," I said, "I am not Baseball; I am newspaper. You <now, words and phrases, strung together with inimitable facility." "Sure, I know," he said, "Associated Press. Nothing but bigotry!" "Who?" I said. "Associated Press," he said. He seemed ignorant to me. Then this lady, Edna, began to >ay, "Why don't you buy Lil Stoner Red?" and she started to cry and yell. I was a red-head too, then. I never could stand a lady yell- ng and carrying on, so the upshot was that somebody pulled out a check on a little old busted bank down around Poplar Bluff and he filled it in for §2,000 and he wrote out a bill of sale for Lil Stoner and one. The next rriorning when I met 3ranlland Rice-he said, "I suppose you know what you did last night, don't you?" and Harry Salsingor, from Detroit, said, "and in Missouri at that! He had to pick Missouri to do it! Boy that certainly is bad. Well, whenever they have a World Series out lliis way, we will run up to Jefferson City and tall on you on visitors' day and bring you cigarettes and candy bars." "Me?" I yelled. "I didn't do no such of a thing. She went out with her husband. That skinny guy in the Texas hat." '.'Oil, her," Rice and Salsinjjer said. "Nobody ain't fretting about her. She is the house-mother. But you wwote a bum check for $2,000 and furthermore.come Jan. 1, you are responisble for Hie board and keep of Lil Stoner and one and they are terrible eaters. You are aoorned to poverty, all for a smile from a pretty red-had." When Christmas came I wrote Lu Stoner a nice note. I said ) didn't want to stand in the way of his advancement so, inasmuch as I didn't have any ball-club, I was giving him his unconditional release. Then I wrote an article for the great American free press giying the same notice to one, my catcher.

Perhaps appropriately, playoff .cams — those, still in the running and those which have been eliminated — dominated positions on the official 1947 all-state teams in the AA, A and B divisions selected for the Arkansas Athletic Association and the Associated Press in a poll of the state's coaches. An outstanding feature of the all-state squads was the accomplishment of the El Dorado Wildcats, Seventh District champions and underdogs for a semi-final playoff tilt with Little Rock this week, in landing four players oh the Class AA all-star first eleven. By contrast, Little Rock, a teafn featuring balanced strength rather than individual brilliance, was awarded only one berth.

It. was . a year that saw Army, jnconquerable for three seasons, ,oSe two games arid tie _ two arid then roar back for one magnificent afternoon to srnother Navy, 21 to 0. • It was a year that saw Michigan return to preeminence in the Western Conference and Southern Cal i'b supremacy on the West Coast LO lay a star-spangled setting for the annual Battle'of Roses at Pasadena. Dark horses were the rule rather than the exception in emerging as sectional champions. in the Southeastern Conference, where Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and, Georgia Tech have long oeen dominant, little Mississippi rode to the title crest behind passing Charley Conerly and snagging Barney Poole. Southern Methodist, although tied in its final game by TCU, surprised by beating out Texas and Rice in the wide-open Southwest Conference. The "surprise" theme prevailed right down through the last big Saturday. Army was figured to take Navy before President Truman and 101,499 other fans at Philadelphia's Municipal Stadi'um but the Middies were supposed to keep it close. Instead, tiiwyn (Rip) Rowan, the Cadets' 'great little • fullback from Memphis, Tenn., made it a one- sided affair by running 92 yards to pne of the three touchdowns and passing to another. Southern Methodist, which went to-, the final barrier unbeaten and untied, was held to 19-19 even tefms by Texas Christian and now gctos into the Cotton Bowl against Penn State with that light smudge. Mississippi locked up the Southe^'stern title by subduing MMissis- sippi State, 33 to 14. The Ole Miss team plays TCU in Memphis' D^lta Bowl. Other teams headed for the Sehior bowls managed to come through final conflicts without damage, although there were some squeaks. Georgia Tech, slated for the Orange Bowl in Miami against Kansas, edged past Georgia, 7 to 0.] Kansas, with big Ray Evans figuring six touchdowns, overwhelmed Arizona, 54 to 28. Alabama, which has a Sugar Bowl date with Texas in New Orleans, had nything but easy sailing in triumphing over Miami (Fla,), 21 to 6, Saturday night. , .Texas Tech won a- spot in the Svjn Bowl by jolting favored Hardin-Simmons, 14 to 6, for the Border Conference championship. Two teams gave their resigning cOaches a good sendoff. Holy Cross won over favored Boston College, 20 to 6, for Ox Dagrosa. And West Virginia's Mountaineers, whose Coach Bill Kern quit last week, trounced Pittsburgh, 17 to 2 — the first West Virginia win over Pitt in 19 years. North . Carolina State held favored Maryland to a scoreless tie.Fordham and N. Y. U. wrangled to a 13-13 draw. Fast-finishing Tennessee outlasted Vanderbilt, 12 to 7. North Carolina won over -Virginia, 40to 7, in a Southern Conference duel and in another game down South Florida kept Kansas State's string intact—handing the boys, from the wheat country 'their 26th straight setback, 25 to 7. Moving eastward, Rice topped Baylor with a fast finish, 34 to 6; Oklahoma conquered Oklahoma A. and M,, 21 .to 13; West Texas State whipped New Mexico, 28 to 18, Oregon State licked Nebraska, 27 to 6; and Michigan State defeated Hawaii in the islands, 58 to 19.

Among the scalps hanging in the Southwest tent are those of other conference champs and bowl teams. Arkansas knocked off Mississippi, Southeastern Conference titlist which will perform in the Delta Bowl; Tulsa, Missouri Valley champ, arid North Texas State, one Star crown winner, in addition to Northwest Louisiana State. Baylor also downed Tulsa. Rice, which finished third in the conference race, tied Southern California, coast champ and Rose Bowl host. Texas and Texas Christian defeated Oklahoma, co-champion of the Big Six, and TCU also tied Kansas, the other Big Six leader. And their efforts were not in vain, as three Southwest teams will appear in bowls New Year's Day. Southern Methodist, as champion, will be host to Penn State in the Cotton Bowl; Texas will meet Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, and TCU will be Ole Miss' Delta Bowl foe. Within the family, the pre-season dope was overturned. Rice, Arkansas and Texas — generally favored in that order — missed out while SMU, given a chance but ranked fourth by .most observers, grabbed top honors. The conference race closed in typical fashion Saturday as underdog TCU spiled SMU's hopes for a perfect season by tying the Mus- ,angs, in a razzle-dazzle thriller, 19-19. And the Frogs came to within a few seconds of defeating the Mustangs, who scored the tying touchdown quickly on Doak Walker's 55-yard kickoff return and two pass plays. Walker missed a place- kick which would have given SMU a victory. Rice spanked Baylor into the cellar, 34-6, by coming to life in the second half. Thanksgiving tilts found Arkansas clipping Tulsa, 27 13, and Texas downing Texas A. M., 32-13. All bowl-bound members began vacations today. SMU will resume practice Dec. until Dec. R, back to the drill field until Dec. 15. The season is over for all other Southwest teams. Walker clinched conference scoring and ball carrying laurels by running his total to (57 points and 684 yards. Arkansas' Clyde Scott, who led in rushing most of the campaign, didn't have a chance to keep pace with the Mustang star as he was injured early in the Rzorbacks' game with Tulsa and was used sparingly on offense. Gulfsfreom Track to Close Down in Florida Hollywood, Fla., Dec. 1 —(UP) —Gulfstream race track, faced with a threat of a "strike" by horse owners, will close down after today's inaugural of the Florida winter racing season, it was announced today. co-favored with the Tigers and El Dorado in the playoffs — a 13-0 licking. • It was that Turkey Day triumph which zoomed the Tigers, defending state champions, to a spot by themselves atop title .speculation.

Strong; Nichols, Norph Yanks, Browns to Decide Pro Title New York, Dec. 1 — (IP) —The New York Yankees and the Cleveland Browns will collide for the All-America Football Conference championship Dec. 14 for the second straight year and the Chicago Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles are on the threshold of meeting for the rival National League's diadem a week later. The Yanks won their second straight Eastern Division title yes terclay by crushing the runner-up Buffalo Bills, 35-13, at the Yankee Stadium. The Browns, who defeated the 10; Texas will rest and TCU 'won't go Yanks in last year's championship game, were idle along with San Francisco, Los Angeles and Brooklyn. Meanwhile, the Eagles look over first place in the National's eastern division scramble from the injury riddled Pittsburgh Steelers by blanking the Steelers 21-0 at Philadelphia. The Eagles are only a half game ahead of the Steelers but they have two games to play while the Steelers have only one. One more Eagle triumph will assure them of no worse than a tie for the crown.
