Winners in all of their ten starts this year, the Vikings have been unbeaten in a little more than three years of play. McMurry, co- champions of the Texas Conference, won seven games, lost two and tied one during the regular season. Two of; the nation's strongest junior college teams—the Tyler Apaches and the Compton (Calif.) Tartars—meet at Tyler, Tex., in the first Texas Rose Bowl game. The Apaches won all of their ten starts while Compton lost only a 14-13 decision in ten outings in regular scheduled play. Pasadena and Lodi, Calif., are host to the two other bowl games today. At Pasadena, the Cameron (Okla.) Aggies tangle with Chafey J. C. (Ontario, Calif.) in the Little Rose Bowl while at Lodi, the College of the Pacific and Utah State clash in the First Grape Bowl game. . • The Aggies finished their season unbeaten in ten starts while Chaf- [ey lost ohly one out of ten games. The Aggies, who appear deeper in reserve strength than Chaffey, play one unit as a single wing 2leven and another as a T.forma- tion squad. Champions of the California Collegiate Athletic Association, the college of the Pacific piled up 311 points in winning eight out of nine games while Utah State gained only six wins n ten starts. Nearly 100,000 fans are expected to see the four games with an-estimated 60,000 expected to witness the Little Rose Bowl tilt at Pasadena. Indian Leader Bears, to Battle for WestFlag New York, Dec. 13 — (/P)— One championship and two divisional titles are down for decision tomorrow as the All-America Conference completes its second season and the Notional Football'League closes out its regular schedule. The Cleveland Browns and the New York Yankees battle for the conference's championship in the Yankee Stadium. Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears and the Chicago Cardinals clash in Chicago for the National's Western Division flag and the Philadelphia Eagles take on Green Bay at home in an attempt to tie the idle Pittsburgh Steelers for the Eastern Division crown. The Cardinals won't need a pep talk when they meet their crosstown rivals, the Bears. This one is for Bidwill —Charlie Bidwill, the late owner of the Cardinals. Bidwill wanted, beyond anything else to produce a championship outfit. He signed All- America Charlie Trippi to a fabulous $100,000 four year contract last winter and incorporated enough other talent to build the structure of a "dream backfield." Trippi, pitching Paul Christmas, Marshal] Goldberg, Pat Harder — that was it. And in front was an aggressive, scrappy line. Then last winter the beloved Bidwill suddenly became ill with pneumonia. He died in about a week. If sentimentalism has any part a all in pro football, it certainly looms for tomorrow's skirmish ai Wrigley Field. An overflow throng of 47,000-50,000 spectators wil watch the Cardinals dig in agains the mighty Bears with the Western title going to the winner and a crack at the national championship against the Eastern winner sched uled in Chicago a week hence. New York, Dec. 13 — (/P) —The; Chicago stadium, seeking to build up its collegiate basketoall program, is ballyhooing the 194M8 season as "the year of the peerless pivotmen." . . .Those lancy words mean there are a heck of a lot of good centers who will appear ori the stadium court and elsewhere — for example Alex Groza, Kentucky; Jack Kerris,' Loyola; John Brennan, Notre Dame; 'Ward Williams, Indiana; Ed Mikan, DePaul; Jim Mclntyre, Minnesota and Alex Hannam, Southern California. . .Any fan probably has his own nomination and no one can see them all in action. . .This 'dept will string along with Groza, until a better player shows up, on the theory that if there's a better center around, Baron Adolph Rupp likely would have him on the Kentucky squad Too Dangcd Go'od Hank Iba, Oklahoma A. and M. athletic director and basketball coach is recognized as one of the best teachers in the court business, but assistant H. A. Dolman wishes Hank knew when to quit. . . .Last spring, Dolman relates, Hank took an all-star college squad to Bartlesville, Okla, to play the ' famous Phillips team in that town's 50th anniversary celebration. . .At half time, the collegians were far ahead but Iba had spotted some mistakes the part of Bob Kurand, seven- oot former Aggie ace. . . .Instead _ coaching his own team, Iba pent the intermission telling Kur- and what was wrong. . .In the second half Bob led Phillips in a ;ame-winning come back.

Recruiting and the amount of aid that may be given athletes were considered probable major topics discussed. An increase in the amount of aid athletes but with a complete ban i outside help was forecast! At is time an athlete can receive oard, room and laundry money, ul many of them supplement lese benefits by representing bus- ess concerns on the campus. There has been some talk of aming a commissioner with powe ' investigate violations and en- rce the rules and also a topic of iscussion was possible limitaton f the number of teams from the onfcrence that many partcipate bowl games. Dean Robert A. Leflar of the 'diversity of Arkansas, who is pre- uling at the meeting said the ule regarding professionalism iso may be strengthened. At this ime every phase of contract sign- iig in baseball is covered but this s not true in professional football and basketball. "We have had no troubles from hese two sports as yet," Dean Lelar said, "but we think we should guard against it.

Arkansas, although badly beaten by New York University at Madison Square Garden Thursday night, figures to give LaSalle's veteran and undefeated quintet a battle with six-foot ten-inch George Kok the chief scoring threat. To match the Razorbacks elongated center, LaSalle has high scoring six-foot nine-inch Larry Foust. The Aggies, winners of three straight, including an easy triumph over Long Island University in Madison Square Garden, will be seeking' their third straight over Temple. "We are not a great team yet," said Coach Hank Iba of his Cowboys today. "We had some bad moments against Long Island but it is a team that will get .better with each game." All of the Aggies are six-foot or over but Temple also has plenty of each.

In the big struggle at the Capi tal City, for which a crowd of 10, 000 was expected to turn out in cold weather, the Little Rock Tig ers. District Five representative; and defending state champions, matched its vaunted aerial circus against Subiaco's power game. The Trojans, fourth District champs, hoped the operations of their fast, hard-hitting backs—principally Norman Janes, Alvin Hoffman, John Whiren and Leo Framel—behind an "iron man" line would bring them a third straight upset victory in the playoff series. Little Rock was favored generally by two touchdowns. Concern was caused in tre Tiger camp by the uncertainty surrounding the physical condititon of Kermit Tracy, the Bengals' leading passer and line-backing star. He was expected to see limited action at -most due to a leg injury. Magnolia's Panthers, District Seven, led all the way in turning back the stubborn Forrest City Mustangs, District Six, at neutral Hot Springs. Springs, El Dorado, Pine Bluff and Blytheville. Texarkana also was mentioned in connection with a possible move .to drop from the Bis 16 and join a smaller group independent of the state football playoff system of the Arkansas Athletic Association. An authoritative source who asked not to be quoted by name said the big schools ' formulated proposals to be submitted to the AAA regarding "some objectionable features tern." of the playoff sys- grounded in fundamentals, particularly on the defense.

Walcott Given Brushoff by Joe Louis WANTED - Logs & Blocks GUM - HACKBERRY - ELM - LYNN SYCAMORE - HOLLY - BAY HOPE BASKET CO. Call 1000 or Contact Office New York, Dec, 13 — WP) —A new Joe Louis-Jersey Joe Walcott battle was building up to impasse today in the negotiations for a return bout between the champion and the challenger. Shortly after Louis indicated at a press confernce in the Twentieth Century Club that- light heavyweight titleholder Gus Lesnevich might be an acceptable opponent for Joe's "last bout." Walcott charged that he was being given the "brushoff." Desiding Walcolt by claiming that Lesnevich was a "more dangerous' puncher, Louis intimated that G..IS had at least as good a chance as Walcott of getting the title shot. In his hotel Wnlcolt retorted: "Louis has always been a great sportsman and a great champion. Now I have my doubts." "I'm not out for revenge," explained Louis. "Walcott had his chance; he ran away, I didn't. I prefer to fight Walcott again; fact is, I'.d prefer him because Lesnevich is the more dangerous punch- The sam esource said it was felt that the bifi schools had "nd authority in the world to form any new league without taking the matter up wih the Arkansas Athletic Associaion, which has worked mighty hard in designing the playoff setup." Several of the larger schools privately have expressed dissatisfac- ion with the playoff system, now n its second year, principally because it extends the season "too ong for young boys" and makes t necessary for their teams to play ;eams from smaller schools to win district championships and qualify :or the playoffs. Crowds, it has jeen pointed out, are not as large for contests with 'outclassed teams as they would be for games with elevens from larger cities. Opinions that the Big 16 yould disband came from several of its officials. One was Conference President Ben Mayo of Fort Smith, \vho said "as I see it, there's nothing for the conference to do but disband." He said all conference members with whom he had talked had "expressed such sentiment." ' Another official said it was unlikely that the conference would "function again with 16 members." Today's meeting was closed to the public and newsmen, but reporters were told they would be advised of any formal action taken the session. er. Then Joe added: "I'd rather fight the one who draws the most money. I must get 40 percent in June. I don't care what percent the challenger gets. That's up to <;•,-• promoter."

GREEN Washington, Dec. 15 Federal financial help to double college enrollments by 1960 as proposed today by President Truman's Commission on higher education. Adding a denunciation of minor- ty "quota systems" and racial segregation in schooling to its firsl report, the 28-member body said the United States not only faces shortages of doctors, teachers and others but stands in peril of foster ,ng an "intellectual elite." Mr. .Truman released the 103 page document with a statemen arging that all citizens "examine t carefully." "For the great majority of our boys and girls," the report said "tne kind and amount of education they may hope to attain depends not on their abilities, but on th family or community into whicl mey nappen to be born or, wors still, on the color of their skin o the religion of their parents." The report criticized the "quot system" for admission by which h said many universities deny learn ing to "certain minorities, particularly to Negroes and Jews."

What the political policy of either Lewis or the AFL will be is anyone's guess. But there are strong indications that organized labor as fc a whole is losing faith in the ' abiliity of wage-bargaining to pro- yde an American standard oi living in the face of current economic odds. As wages advance there is a still more rapid movement upward in the price not only of durable goods by of day-to-day cost-of- iiving items.

With all his quarrels in the AFL and in the executive offices of management, Lewis has never lost sight of the fact that production of goods — not government regulation of labor or industry — is the one thing that creates wealth and establishes our national scale of living. Lewis' welcoming of labor-saving machines into the coal pits of America is an example of his forward-looking policies. And his latest revolt from the AFL may well signal the beginning of me decpesc sort of unrest among AFL and CIO mpmbers who fear that their avowed public policies are beginning to sound like something out of a book instead of a cash register. ,., * * * , .,. ,•.- ; BY JAMES THRASHER Just Talking At first the Communists' strale- gey in the French strikes seemed as, clear as it was distressing. Then along came this three-paragraph dispatch from Paris about a Communist member oi the Assembly named Georges Gosnat. We wish that whoever sent or edited it had either given us more or else killed the thing. As it is, we're baffled. The story said that Comrade Gos- nat had cited the American movie, "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," to justify his party's efforts — fortunately futile — to delay the vate on Premier Schuman's anti-strike low. "The film, made several years ago, depicted a filibuster in the United States Senate," the dispatch relpfnlly recalled. We also remember it was made by Frank Capra in 1939, with James Stewart as the star, and that it was a good pic- of Education. The report asserted that despite laws guaranteeing equal advantages, inferior education is given to Negroes in the 17 states and the District of Columba where segregation is practiced. To perpetuate a system in which the "under-privileged areas and families" supply most of the children, without assuring them full educational opportunity, is "sure to prove disastrous to the level of our culture and to the whole fabric of our democratic institutions", the document contended. Four southerrt members of the commission dissented from the findings on segregation, particularly with reference to educaton in the south.

But what has this to do with Comrade Gosnat and the Communist filibuster in the French Assembly What else did M. Gosnat say? How did he justify the Reds' tactics by an appeal to "Mr. Smith"? Either the Paris reporter or the cable editor knowledge. Maybe the has denied us the Communist deputy said to the Assembly's non-Communist majority, "See, your blessed Americans do the same thing in their Congress that we are doing in the Assembly. You seem to think everything the Americans do is right. 1£ it's all right for them, it's all right for us." But, if he said that, he would be praising an American institution. And praise of anything American just isn't the Communist fashion. In fact, Moscow frowns severely these days when its minions ascribe virtue to anything that isn't Communist-inspired and Communist approved. Perhaps M. Gosnat said something like this: "Here we have a motion picture typical of the decadent American mind. The Yankee press and public are forever attacking the filibuster and trying to get away with it. Yet the filibuster is a truly democratic process. It protects the right of a minority." In that case he would be in bad on two counts. He would still be paising an American political practice.

Suit was filed against the company in Benton county, by Fred Pearce, alleging his daughter was fatally injured by negligent oper- tion of a company bus in Fort Smith at the time of the accident.

They are just happy hypocrites. Cocktail parties are wonderful things. They are zoos without bars. All the animals can get together, and after the martinis have been around a few times it is just like .he old happy carefree days back in the jungle. I have never seen a movie or alay half as interesting as a Got- iiam cocktail party, and I love them all the way through from the first gluey taste of fishpaste-and- wallboard right un to the sodiam bicarbonate I take the next morning. In New York cocktail parties rarely happen accidentally. They usually have a deep-dyed "purpose" — to pay off social debts en masse, to launch a better mousetrap or to sell a celebrity that nobody ever heard of before except his mother and his publisher. They are supposed to have a time limit, but the only ones who lake it seriously arc the host and-or the hostess. I like to go early and stay late, for the same reason that I hate to leave in the middle of a movie. When you arrive the place is always fresh and magnificently neat, and when you leave it looks as if it had been kicked apart by a muscular horse.

The Dewey forces now concede privately this field will block any first ballot nomination at Philadelphia in June. Similarly, a Taft strategist said in a separate interview the Ohio Senator's backers think Eisenhower, rather than any of the other most frequently mentioned candidates, may become the man they have to beat to get the nomination. This concentration on Eisenhower, expected to retire early next year to become president of Columbia Univrsity on June 7, promises to have some effect on the type of campaign conducted by the major candidates. All of them, including former Gov. Harold E. Stassen of Minnesota, are likely to exert every possible effort to force Eisenhower out into the open and get him on the record on national issues as early as possible. Regardless of the Eisenhower developments, Dewey is described by his friends as being determined not to announce his candidacy formally before the convention meets. His attitude, they say, is that the Republican party knows that (A) he is available, (B) he has largely made his record by his actions as governor and his declarations on public policy questions and (C) the party will call on him again if it thinks he would be the candidate most likely to win.
