Texas Meets Aggies, Baylor
Vs. Owls and Arkansas,
Oklahoma Aggies
Associated Press Sports Writer
DALLAS, Nov. 25.—OPh-Four
games, two of them jiaced witkh all
the elements that make the loot
ball fan thankful he is alive, will
ring down <he curtain tills week on
the most spectacular campaign the
Eouthwest Conference has seen.
Headlining the closing week's
bill cf fare will be the champion
ship fray Saturday at Fort Worth
between Texas Christian University
and Southern Methodist, youngest
members of the conference. The
Frogs will be seeking their first
title, the Methodists, thar third.
Demand for tickets already has ex
ceeded the 20.000 seating capacity
of Clark Field.
Some 32.000 fans will swarm in
to College Station Thanksgiving
1 Mr for the annual bout between
T'Jxkt University and the Texas Ag
gies. It will be the first time in
many a day the Longhorns and Ca
dets have clashed without one or
the other playing for the title.
Tradition, however, says it is the
game to attend, and they will have
their audience from every comer of'
Bear* vs. Owl*
Less color is attached to the
week's other attractions. The
Baylor Bears, heavy pre-season fa
vorites. find themselves matched
with the lowly Rice Institute Owls
at Houston, out of the race and
nothing to be done about it. Af
ter taking healthy beatings from
T. C. U. and 8. M. U. on successive
week-ends, the Bears will be fa
vored to wind up with a victory
over the Owls. They play Satur
day. . .
Arkansas University will close a
fairly successful season against the,
Oklahoma Aggies at Stillwater. As
the bout will count In the Razor
backs' standing, a victory would en
able them to finish above .500 per
cent. They play Thanksgiving Day.
The Porkers have won six out of,
eight games played, losing only to
Baylor and Texas.
Titular Tilt
Few, if any, fans could have I
foreseen two months ago tne meet
ing between the Mustangs and
Frogs lor the championship. Few-,
er would have been willing to pre-i
diet the Frogs would batter their
wav to nine straight victories in
their path to the finals and the
Methodists go through a program of
ten games without meeting defeat.'
But there is little doubt now that
the two “baby” members are among
the most powerful and versatile,
elevens in conference history. Their j
meeting should be a classic.
The Frogs, as a result of their
decisive win over Baylor. 34 to 7,j
will enter the championship melee,
slight favorites. As Southern'
Methodist has a tie with Texas
University against its record, the
Christians will need only to hold
the Mustangs to a draw to capture
the crown. There is no belief that
the Frogs will be willing to lay
back and accept a tie. however.!

HARLINGEN, Nov. 25 — One of
the best games of the season is ex
pected here Tuesday afternoon,
when Coach "Dutch” Rektorik's
Harlingen Cardinals and Coach
“Sheik" Davis* Kingsville eleven
clash for bi-district honors. Rek
torik and Davis are old Aggie team
mates. having played on the elevens
of *25-26-27 and *28. Consequently
rivalry between the two will be
high in Tuesday s contest. The
game will be called at 3 p. m. at the
Fair grounds park.
Coach Rektorik's eleven has
swept to the Valley title with an
undefeated record. Coach Davis’ ag
gregation holds the title for the
neighboring district. Both coaches
hope to get the breaks of the game,
as it is believed the breaks will de
termine the winner.
Kingsville is generally regarded
as having a stronger backfield than
the Cardinals, but its line is not
quite as powerful as the Harlingen
forward wall. Evidently the teams
are well matched.
Neither coach announced hi',
starting lineup, but it Is believed
the Cards will start Ray Murray at
left end. He has starred in every
game and made four touchdowns
against the McAllen Bulldigs. With
erspoon. captain, will hold a tackle
post. He is a strong tackle and will
be hard to k«ep off the All-Valley
eleven. Drury is suffering from an
attack of inl’uenza and Johnston
will likely sta’t at his guard post.
W. Lawrence, a capable center,
adept at breaking up passes, will
draw the center assignment. Mike
Waters, who is hailed as All-Valley,
will start at his regular guard jx>
sition. Brindley or H. Drake will
hold down the other tackle.
Racks Powerful
In the backfield the Cards will
have Jimmy Lawrence, another
member of the famous Lawrence
football family. He has been play
ing quarter and ts one of the best
in the Valley in handling men and
picking holes Schuepbacb, who fan
through McAllen at will, is slated
to start at a half. He hits hard and
runs like nobody's business. Sis

down the other half. This scranper

powerful unit in the championship
