• % - -~ —--■ - — . 11 STEERS READY FOR BIG GAME Longhorns Polishing Off With Light Practice Sessions w _ AUSTIN, Nov. 9 UP, — A Ught. | Workout to round out three days of training in preparation for their crucial Southwestern Conlerence tilt with the Texas Christian Uni versity Progs on Armistice Day at Port Worth was in store for the Texas Longhorns today. Coach Clyde Littlefield, guarding against injuries in practice sessions. I has not drilled his gridiron war riors strenuously at any time in priming them for the Frog en counter, upon which probably hinges the conference crown Satisfied only partially with the showing of the Longhorns in prac tice during the past two days. Lit tlefield has predicted that his charges must have a change of mind to put them in shape for a victory. “They can't win unless they get that fighting spirit back.'* he $aid. While not as pessimistic as usual. Littlefield complained that the Longhorns are not as determined to win from the Frogs as they were from the Rice Owls, whom they defeated. Tomorrow Coach Littlefield and thirty Longhorns will leave for Fort Worth. Tomorrow afternoon they will have a light workout on the T. C. U. stadium in preparation for the Armistice Day clash. The Longhorns were In good con dition physically, although Bennie Rundoll. end. injured in the Okla homa game, and Roy Cooledge. re serve guard, are out with in juries. Ed Price, reserve end, has missed practice for several days because of illness of his mother at Waco. It was not knowm whether Price would be able to plav against T. C. U. CHAMPION TO PERFORM HERE Gus Kallio. middleweight wrest ling champion, will defend his title here Thursday night against an opponent to be picked by the fans. It has been announced by Promoter l Ernie Stephens. ^ 8ix or seven leading middle weights will be picked and placed in the ring. The man getting the most applause will be Kallio's op ponent here, act opding to Stephen'! plan. Rounding out the card, the re maining middleweight* will be pit ted against each other. These light boys should give the fans lots of speed and some clever wrestling. Kallio is one of the best known wrestlers in this country. He has the best claim to the middleweight belt at present and is undoubtedly a great grappler. He should make a big hit with Brownsville fans who like ’pm fast and clever. Last but not least, the one and only Ben Freuden rein is slated to referee the bout. Ben got Stephens “fixed up" in a bout here recently and the promoter will likely get things “fixed up” for Ben Thurs day night. Jury Trial Sought A hearing is to be held in the civil district court Friday on a peti tion asking that Judge O. C. Dancy be ordered to give Mrs Lillie S. Rabb a trial j Jury In her effort to be judged of sound mind. TT»e petition asking tho man damus was filed Monday by Mrs. Rabb and Fred Kowalski as her next friend The petition alleges denial of “legal, constitutional and lawful rights under the constitu tion of the United States and of this state." A hearing to have Mrs. Rabb ad judged of sound mind was held be fore Judge Dancy in probate court recently and he decided use of a jury in the attempted restoration, ruling against the application. CARD-HOUND TILT HEADS VALLEY GRID DOCKET HOOKS AND SLIDES It has just been announced that the Flatbush Foolishness Boys, by which is meant the Brooklyn Base ball club, will train at Coral Gables. Fla., and live for five or six weeks In the aUnobphere of the swanky ; Miami-Blit mart* hotetl- James, quickly my lorgnette, please! Thus the Brooklyn team turns its back forever on the old hurly-bur ly days in the south. Not many years ago. when the team first ac cepted Clearwater. Fla., as its train- j ing base, the boys lived in an exalt ed kind of shed. It was one of those hotels that .seemed to have but one key. which the clerk carried In his pocket. To attempt to lower the curtain in your room was to pull it off its roller with a clatter and a crash. There was a bowl and stand In the cor ner of your room Some of the bet ter looms had mirrors, an eight-by ten affair suspended crookedly by wire from the molding. Kobbie Liked It Somehow that old hotel at Clear water was part and parcel of base ball. and it was characteristic of Uncle Wilbert Robinson, until late ly manager of the Dodgers Roobble was an old-fashioned baseball man and he was used to the rigors of spring training. There were creaky stairs. The whole building creaked, in fact, and when it rained you were pretty sure to have some of It in your room. Atheltes, trying to creep upstairs with a minimum of noise, after having spent the evening in the convivial neighborhood of Ybor City, a wide-onen Spanish suburb of Tampa, nearby, were pretty sure to make enough noise to awaken even Uncle Robbie when those po tented stairs started to whine and whimper. There was no need of a checkup of players at a given hour in that old hotel. The stairway told on I everyone. • • • In His Own Domain Here Uncle Robbie would sit in the rickety lobby, wetting his thumb as he turned the upages of a roster, and discuss his ball club w h the scribes. Usually he would have the opening day lineup the second day the boys were in camp. This would be changed daily, depending upon •he jleeds of the athletes at th<* leaky-roof little ball park beyond the railroad tracks. Perhaps it is just as well that Uncle Robbie isn't with the Dod gers any more It is hard to imagine him in one of those supercilious, embarrassing lobbies such as some 7>f the more fashionable hotels In Florida offer to the wealthier tour ists. It is impossible to picture the Dodgers of the old days, for that matter, choosing this fork or that for the salad and filet mignon, and sitting stiffy under the scorching or condescending looks of the pig iron manufacturers from Cleveland who sit smugly at an adjoining table. • • • It Was Baseball Tha* old frame hotel or earlier Brooklyn days in the south had something of color «nd honesty and pulsing life that the Brooklyn team has lost just as surely as it has lost Uncle Robbie. It bore a relation to the dug-out which marble-walled and tiled foy ers can never claim. It was base ball training camp all over. It was rough, and the men who came there in the spring to prepare for a year in the big league were rough, too They matched it. T am wondering if the Dodgers of 1933 will natch this magnificent new hostelry’. And in what way. Cherra Poonjee. in Assam, aver ages 464 inches of rain annually.

Nov. 9 — The staunch defense q[ the “thin red line of Aggieland which has had only one touchdown punched through it on running plays in three Southwest Conference games probably will receive its toughest test to date this season in confer ence play when the well oiled of fensive of the Rice Institute Owls comes to Kyle Field Friday seeking its third conference victory in I four starts. The game originally , was scheduled for Saturday but was hiked up a day because Friday. Armistice Day. will be observed gen erally as a holiday. The Aggie line held the powerful I TCU Horned Frogs to one touch down gained from running plays, the Frogs resorting to an aerial at- j tack and a field goal to gain the additional points of their 17 to 0 victory. It held Baylor and then Southern Methodist to scoreless ties in two other conference tills. And it held Centenary, conquerors of j j the University of Texas Longhorns by a 13 to 6 count and the SMU Mustangs by a 18 to 7 tally, to a lone touchdown in an intersection al clash. Injury Jinx To accomplish this, the Aggie line had to overcome seemingly insurmountable difficulties, brought about by an injury “jinx ’ which has camped on its trail since the season started and which has been unrelenting. Saturday injuries re moved two more players, Ray Murray and “Bear” Wright, ends, the former a letterman. and brought i the total of Injured linesmen to1 eight. But the march of the Cadet reserves, who have adjusted them selves constantly to fill the gaps, has moved on, and the question remains: Can the Aggie line stop the Owl offensive? Twinkling as the brightest stars ] in the Aggie lorward wall probably are Willis Nolan, center, and Charlie Cummings, tackle and end. Nolan is rated as one of the hard est charging and tackling pivot men in the conference tins sea son. His play against Otis Harris, Rice center who received all-con ference mention in 1931. probably will be one of the features of the tilt. He is a senior and has two letters to his credit, i Cummings has been playing heads-up football all season, and he too is being menuoned as all- j conference timber. His regular position is at tackle, but he played one-half ol the SMU game at end and probably will start at the latter P06t Friday. Ho is a Junior. Bob I Cor.nelley. a Fort Worth sophomore who shouted great improvement against the Mustangs, probably will draw the assignment at the other wing post. Other startup linesmen probably will be as follows: Whar ton Jordan. Fort Worth, and Honk” Irwin. Kosse, tackles; Stapp Max well. Leonard and Sully Woodland, Edna, guards. Matamoros Rail Service Resumed Railroad service to the city ol the city oX Matamoros from Mon terrey has been resumed, after an interruption of almost two months. The small bridges which were washed out at a point about five miles from Matamoros have been repaired, and the track alone; the entire route has been put in shape. 1 Trams are now making the run on •cfceduk. Oregon State Ogre To Play Eastern Elevens Here are two Oregon State gridders who’ll be watched closely when they meet Ford ham and Detroit. The fast-stepping lad is Frank Lit tle. veteran fullback, and inset is Harold Pangle, sensational sophomore half. CORVALLIS, Ore., Nov. 9—Four years ago an underrated Oregon State eleven that had been kicked around frequently In the Pacific Coast Conference swooped down upon a favored New York U. eleven and came away with & startling 25-13 victory. Another supposedly mediocre Beaver eleven that was defeated by Stanford. Southern California and Washington State in its first three conference games, again goes east to battle Ford ham. November 19, and the University of Detroit, Thanksgiving Day. Coach Paul Schissler has a most unusual record at Corvallis. His teams seem unable to win a home game, but rise only to great lieights when they are far from home. In 10 intcrsectional battles complete a versatile back fie l<i Moe is regarded as half of the defense and the best interference runner in Oregon State history. Oregon State has one of the best defense elevens in the conference. It held Howard Jones’ Trojans to a 10-0 score this year while Pop Warner's mighty Stanford clan was beaten by Southern California, IS 0. since 1915, Oregon State has lost only three. Success has crowned every re cent eastern invasion. In 1929. Schlssler took his men to Detroit to conquer the University of De troit. 14-7. The next year they went to Chicago to upset West Vir ginia, 12-0. Last year they swept aside Utah. 13-0, at Portland in the only intersection tilt. The 1932 Beavers are pretty fair ball players. Captain Hal Moe has no peers on the Pacific Coast as a blocking halfback. Harold Pangle, sensational sopho more; Johnny Biancone. black haired Italian triple-threat star, and Frank Little, veteivn fullback. “KLUTCH” HOLDS FALSE TEETH TIGHT Klutch forms |t comfort cushion; holds the plate soi«nug it can't rock, drop, chafe or * V>e played with”.
