The athletic activities of the University of Texas during the 190-21 season will be handled by the largest and most efficient group of coaches that has ever been gotten together by a southern institution. With an atten dance which is expected to exceed the 4000 mark, and with the increasing interest in sports and physical train ing in general since the war. even this staff will be taxed to the utmost to fulfill the need. Whitaker In Charge. The football coaching suf is com posed of five termer college stars, headed by 'Berry M Whitaker. for merly quarterback, of the University of Indiana. Whiqiker was assistant coach of the 1911 team and is the man responsible for the Inauguration and development of varsity intramu ral activities. His -past success as a coach of well trained and fighting teams led to his selection last spring as the proper man to lead the long borns to victory this fall. As first assistant to Whltnker Charles B. Seldon will act as head line coach. Seldon was ail-western guard on the Ohio State Uni versity's championship teams for three years.. Ills playing ability and fightinjr qualities are shown by the fact that he was recognised ns the best guard In the middle west, although he only weighed 143 pounds. Ton handle the freshman football team, and also to take charge of in tercollegiate track for the coming session, the university secured Clyde Ltttlefield.

Frank Erne, if he did not octbox, did clearly outfight and outgame Gans and made Joe quit cold in the 12th round. Coming oat ot a clinch, Frank chopped a hard left to Gans's right eye. It cut Joe's eyebrow, which hung bleeding over the eye, and Joe seised that excuse to say to the referee. 2 cannot go any farther," and quit. Two years later Gans beat Erne In a round, but Frank had not taken good care of himself, ran into one of Joe's beautifully timed short rights and lost his world championship, t Those who remember Ganss career aa featherweight have not forgotten how AI Herferd, then his manager, nsed to work to give Joe an aee in the hole In every match- In those days weight forfeits did not run very ls- Joe could not make 118 or even U2 pounds to save his life and never tried to.
