LINE MAKES GRID GAINS Powerful Forward Walls First Necessity For Champs BY BILL SPAULDING Coach University of California at Los Angeles LOS ANGELES, Oct. 18— No fcotbell team has gone far nor won any championships without s smooth clicking line. After ail, it Is the line which makes the ball go up and down the field. Starting with the center, the heavier the line the better so long as it doesn't interfere with the agility and speed of the individual player. The center must be, first, an excellent passer, for each back has his own peculiarities and the ball must be passed to eacn just M If a back can depend on a per fect pass from center, he doesn’t worry about the ball and can use his effort thinking of where he is going and how he is going to get there. Nothing slows up the ball I carrier so much as to have a cen ter in which he has no confidence. After the center passes the ball, be must have poise enough and sufficient balance to protect him self against the onslaught of a de fensive man. On defense, a center may be called upon to pull out of the line to make tackles on the wings and also to help in the passing game. In other words, when a six-man line is used, he might become a Mkrnd fullback so that a good gAter plays on the line physical ly. and in the open mentally. • • • Guards must be rugged and ag gressive, and at least one must be able to pull out and run inter ference as fast as a bacv He must be able to knock down at leasf one of the secondary lefense. If he is a big man, he might ruti straight down the field, with the ball carrier using him as a dodging post. A good guard always will pro tect the center, who is helpless until after he gets the pass away At least one guard is almost al ways used to protect thr passer of a forward, and sometimes both guards pull out for this purpose. On defense if the center is not of the roving type, one of the Is must be shifty enough to back snd nelp cm passes, take his place in the secondary defense and make tackles oq the wings as well as back up the line. To be a tackle of championship caliber a good amount of weight is necessary as he Is the one wno bears the brunt of the defense, and who Is called upon to stop all plays directed at his side of the line. Th“ fact is practically all offensive plays are d. >cted Just inside or off tackle, putting great pressure on this position. A tackle should be a veritable tiger. On offense he must handle his opponent, who usually is a guard, if the offense is to get any Elaea—so the better the tackle, the etter the offense. Some coaahes run their tackles In interference, •o speed Is a great asset • • A good end must be fast and ahlfty enough to handle weight. He •hould have big hands to catch forward passes from any position. Big hands are necessary also in holding back interference until the tackle is made. The reason an end should be heavy Is because he is called upon to handle the tackles we have Just talked about. He must be tall and rangy so he can cove* a lot of territory getting down under kicks and passes. A line of this sort of material makes It easy for backs to gain. After the line has worked to gether for a time, team play Is developed, and when i play Is called, openings are made in the defensive line which enable the backs to reach the open.

C. product says the terms proposed by Stephens are not to his liking. The other ten rounder on the card would bring together Bennie Perry, Austin 124 pounder, and Johnny Cruz, clever San Antonio featherweight.

Cruz made a hit with Brownsville fans in his I bout here with “Gorilla” Morales, but slumped badly against Kid Bruno in the Harlingen ring last I week. The card is to be filled out by four six-rounders which should furnish ample action.

Roper, Jr„ sophomore candidate for an end position, gets in. It was against Columbia in 1900 that his father, later Princeton coach for many years, made one of his greatest plays. He grabbed a Columbia rum ble and ran 35 yards for a touch down, but it wasn’t quite enough to win the game. ANN ARBOR. *Mich—The news papermen areund the Big Ten are expecting to see plenty of new plays when Michigan and Ohio State clash this week. The first entirely secret practice at Michi gan in several years was scheduled lor today while all spectators, in cluding reporters, have been barred from the Ohio stadium for several days. • • • PITTSBURGH — Even though Pittsburgh defeated Navy 34-6 last week. Coach Jock Sutherland ap parently wasn’t satisfied. He made three changes in the first team yesterday, replacing Bob Hogan at . quarter back with Miller Munjas, sending Henry Weisenbaugh to full back in place of Izzy Weinstock and giving Bob Jo£* the tackle berth held by John Meredith. • • • UNIVERSITY. Va—Six joints in two games weren’t enough for Vir ginia even if the opposition was tough. Hence the Cavaliers have been receiving special instruction in scoring plays to be used when tliey penetrate into enemy trritory. • • • NEW YORK—Columbia’s follow ers seem to think the Princeton game will be worth seeing. Already 4.000 tickets have been sold here, the largest sale on record for one of the Lions' out of town games. m m • CHICAGO—The old favorite Joke used to be “Stagg fears Purdue” but now its Clark Shauglinessy do ing a little serious thinking about Chicago's clash with the Boiler makers.

Marjorie Breed love, Caroline Cowgtll. Helen Swan son, Gordon Fisher and Anne Har ris. McMurry Richey and Catherine Pugsley were ex-student members of the executive board. FRIDAY GRID DO 'FDLL Leaders Face No Danger; San Benito Plays Mission VALLEY FOOTBALL Class “B" Mission At San Benito. Rio Hondo open. Edinburg at La Feria. Mercedes at McAllen. P-SJ-A at Donna. Non-Conference Brownsville at Weslaco. Harlingen at Corpus ChrlstL Friday's games will do something to the midsection of the Valley "B” standings, but there will be little doing at the top of the column. The three undefeated clubs—Rio Hondo, San Benito and Weslaco— have nothing to fear. The Arroyo contingent has an open date, San Benito plays hosts to Mission and Weslaco takes on Brownsville in a non-conference tilt. The only change in sight is the strong prob ability that San Benito will oea;. Mission, tying Rio Hondo at the J top of the column with three straight victories. The real scraps, with lesser clubs fighting to get back into the championship running, will be Ed inburg at La Feria, Mercedes at McAllen and P-SJ-A at Donna. La Feria has not been counted out of the race although she lost a 7-6 heartbreaker to Donna. The Lions have the stuff and will likely give the leaders something to thmk over ere long. Steers Prepare For Centenary AUSTIN, Oct. 18.—The Texas Longhorns are making no alibis for their 9-0 licking at the hands of the Oklahoma Socners, and are working this week to check a tough aggregation of Centenary Gentle men at San Antonio Saturday. These same Gentlemen came to Austin in 1932 and handed the powerful Steers a decisive 13-6 lacing. And now. the Longhorns, without Koy, Stafford, Blanton, Clewis, and Moody, face a task that is far from easy. The Gents lost Ralph Murff, a brilliant back and field general, but Captain Man ning Smith has replaced Murff without losing strength. Smith is one of the finest punters in the South. The improved showing of the Longhorns against the Sooners heartened Texas fans. The forward wall seems set with Sanger and Gray at ends; Coates and Niebuhr at tackles; Smart! and Phillip* at guards; and Captain Bill Smith at .enter. Sanger earned a permanent berth with his brilliant defensive play, while Coates, the handy man in the Steer corral, played a steady game at the tackle post. When Bohn Hilliard returns to the lineup Texas will have a fine team. The sophomores a:a rapidly gaining confidence and should be set for a successful season when the Steers open their conference schedule against Rice in Austin, October 28. If Hilliard does not return to the starting lineup against the Gents Saturday, Jimmie Hadlock or Hubert Jurecka will be In his halfback post. The rest of the back field looks better with Jay Arnold and Melvin Preibisch almost sure fixtures. The signal chanting post is still a merry battle between Ron ald Pagan. Buster Baebel. and Charles Johnston. Johnston’s ankle injury should be mended by Sat urday. SANBENITO—Judge W. R. Croc ket will hold a hearing Thursday for J«/us Guajardo. Ramon Cruz, and Gerommo Lozano on charges of tire theft and Miguel Ramirez on a charge of purchasing stolen property. Ball Game Sunday The Brownsville Tigers will take on the Matamoros S.C.OP. nine here Sunday in keeping with their program of “year around” baseball. The Scops have been rolling up a nice record this season, playing a number of Valley and Mexico nines. The Scops are formed large ly of the young baseball talent of Brownsville. The visitors will have for their battery J. Cavazos. Hernandez and Baker, while the Tigers will have Champion, Martinez, Vargas and Aldane available.
