LOBOES GOOD,
WORK PROVES
All* Valley Eleven Arrives
Early Wednesday To
Rest for Tilt
Two veteran high school squads,
the Cisco Loboes and the All-Val
ley, will taper off their training
Tuesday afternoon for the Battle
of Grapefruit New Years day.
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, mostly 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 this point. Coach “Dutch”
Rektorik's crew will be brought
here Wednesday morning for a
period of rest prior to the ’ 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. Pippens 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- I
bliss has the facility of kicking in- I
to the wmd 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 ail-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 backfield.
The Loboes will stage their last

Timely New resolution:
Eagles. We gn nofc fumble on

Cards: "We rjq|V6 to win the
Valley football limpionship in
1930 and to have it even better club
than our 1929 oration:*
Grape fruiters: *We resolve to in
augurate the Ba^p of Grapefruit'
with a victory the Cisco Lo
boes."
McAllen: "Weroiolve to win the
Valley basket be championship
once more.’’
Anyone with equity blues: "We

Bob Wade: Irfsolve to achieve

Buck Weaver. )*ina: "I resolve

Valley Amateu. Basketeere: "No
team shall be abtved to sign star
players lor hard times."
Cisco Loboes: “We resolve to
show the Valley that the Oil Beit
district really is toughest in the
state."
Spitz Clark: "resolve to take a
swing at anyone referring to me as
:Solomon’."
H. D. Seago: resolve to beat
M. R. Hall at «flr. Sheriff Frank
Brown at skeet, md to kill at least
two deer during ufo."
Cisco Lobo stool bounded upward
after the elevef| initial workout
Monday afternexa on Tucker field.
Coach W. B. Chapman has a squad
which will a\en» 163 pounds to a
man. In addiuot to being big. the
boys train hardatid like their foot
ball. After twohours of strenuous
practice, the I o s showed no ef
fects from the change of climate
Cotton Pippen. about whom some
controversy hasrtged as to whether
lie is eligible, slowed no mean abil
ity at booting ie oval. This slim
youth got off fcaral long, low punts
for sixty yards i&d better.
The Loboes eere especially im
pressive when they got down to
ruining signal: Due to a shift in
the line-up, a. error cropped oxu
every now am - then, but on the
whole the Cisc< entrant was a pow
erful-appearing unit as it clicked
off with the bgkfield shift acting
as trigger. Qgch Chapman has
several noollai passers and re
ceivers. The 3rapefruiters would
do well to keo their optics prop
?Kd open fo: hearts through the
ozone.
.
"Hurry' Up" Yost has nothing
on Coaches %apman and Hill.
They kept the Loboes hustling all
the time. “It they loaf on you.
give them an extra lap,** fhe 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 curscr on the squad.
Old Jack Frost has turned the
luxuriant green of Tucker field a
sombre brown. When grldsters
clomp away to get under screwing,
curving nunts, small puffs of dust
rise from under their feet. Such
was not the case when the Eagles
were at the height of their glory.
A lake of velvety green confronted
Capt. Dan Barnhart and his mates
when they took to the field.
Coach Dutch Rektorik of the
All-Valley has given no intimation
of what his starting llae-up will
be. The V&lleyitea are now putting
the finishing touches on two weeks
of training 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
I the price of admission, according
to chamber of commerce officials.
There will be a pageant typical of
the Valley among other things. The
.'.11-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 arc
in Mindanao, in the Philippines.
