These will be the last practice licks the boys will get In befbre they rush through the gates at Tucker field, inaugurating the Val ley classic modeled after the Tournament of Roses on the Pac ific coast. Only light work, mof'.ly signal practice, was on the docket for the squads Tuesday afternoon. The two clubs are sharpening up their at tack. The Grapefruiters, training at Harlingen, were bearing down hard on tnis point. Coach “Dutch" Rektorik’s crfew will be brought here Wednesday morning for a period of rest prior to the 1 ick-off. The Loboes went through an im pressive drill session Monday on Tucker field. Despite its hard trip ! from Cisco, the West Texas pack was put through two hours of stren uous work. It was topped iff with signal practice. The concensus among fans who saw the eleven go through its bag of Knute Rockne tricks, was that the All-Valley ag gregation was in lor tough sled ding. Good Panting The punting of Cotton Pippen and Chambliss was one of the features of the afternoon. These boys whanged the pigskin down the field for 60 yards and more with regularity. Pippen’s kick is of the long, low variety, whose arc Is more like that of a pass rather than a punt. It is the type that delights most coaches heart. Cham bliss has the facility of kicking in to the wind almost as well as with it. His punts spiral In such a man ner as to offer very little wind resistance. They seem to plane in to the wind. "Red" Christian disported some of the wares which brought him mention as all-district end in the Oil Belt section. He handles the ball well and is fairly fast. R. Miller, who has been mentioned as all-state, showed lots of pep at left guard. It is probable that his brother. D. Miller, a back, will start at right tackle In order to make room for Cotton Pippen In the backfleld. The Loboes will stage their last A. TAMM I Blue Printing and Supplies Harlingen.

Seago: “I resolve to beat M. R. Hall at golf. Sheriff Frank Brown at skeet, and to kill at least two deer during 1930.” Cisco Lobo stock bounded upward after the eleven's initial workout Monday afternoon on Tucker field. Coach W. B. Chapman has a squad which will average 163 pounds to a man. In addition to being big, the boys train hard and like their foot ball. After two hours of strenuous practice, the Loboes showed no ef fects from the change of climate. Cotton Pippen. about whom some controversy has raged as to whether he is eligible, showed no mean abil ity at booting the oval. This slim youth got off several long, low punts for sixty yards and better. The Loboes were especially im pressive when they got down to running signals. Due to a shift in the line-up. an error cropped out every now and then, but on the whole the Cisco entrant was a pow erful-appearing unit as it clicked off with the backfield shift acting as trigger. Coach Chapman has several excellent passers and re ceivers. The Grapefruiters would do well to keep their optics prop ped open for heavfs through the czone. “Hurry Up” Yost has nothing on Coaches Chapman and Hill. They kept the Loboes hustling all the time. “If they loaf on you, give them an extra lap," the blond mentor told his assistant • Monday afternoon. The Cisco boys, despite their evident power, know the value of discipline. One word from Chap man and everything is smoothed over. The likeable chap tolerates no cursing. Usually the coach is the loudest curser on the squad. Old Jack Frost has turned the luxuriant green of Tucker field a sombre brown. When gridsters clomp away to get under screwing, curving punts, small puffs of dust rise from under their feet. Such was not the case when the Eagles were at the height of their glarv. A lake of velvety green confronted Capt. Dan Barnhart and his mates when they took to the field. Coach Dutch Rektorlk of the All-Valley has given no intimation of what his starting line-up will be. The Valleyites are now putting the finishing touches on two weeks of trailring at Harlingen. "Our boys are in excellent condition and I believe we have developed them into a clicking organization," Coach Rektorik says. Even the players themselves do not know who will get into the starting line-up. Several novelty acts will be put on at half which should be worth the price of admission, according to chamber of commerce officials There will be a pageant typical of the Valley among other things. The All-Valley band and cheering squad should lend color to the attrac tion. If you cannot attend, tune In on station KWWG of Brownsville. A play-by-play will be called from the field as the game progresses. Engineers have estimated that there are 50,000,000 tons of iron ore in Mindanao, in the Philippines.
