Numerous Pr
For ’50 Bowl Games
Dallas, Nov. 1 —It’s a trifle early to toe talking
about bo^rl games but right now there are mighty fine pros
pects in the Southwest Conference.
Baylor is undefeated and untied. Rice has lost one game
i conference
but it was outside the
I . to win the conference title, which*
means, favored to beat Baylor.
JRice already has gotten by Texas
; and Southern Methodist and Bay
lor is the only teapi left to worry
too much about. '
• Rice,, then, would go to the Cot
ton Bowl, which takes the confer
ence champion automatically. That
would leave Baylor a^d Southern
Methodist at: top prospects for the
other major bowls the Sugar Bowl
Orange Bowl i,
,■ . •••' r
* Of course,
Methodist ha
would really
and the Owls are favored

Ben commented that his family
was doing a good job of su^prirt-
Baylor a^d Southern
vc yet to' meet. SMU
mess up the confer
ence race by licking Baylor if the
Bears, In tuni, took down Rico. That
. would leave the titled In a three-
way tie. Then the Cotton Bowl
would have to choose between the
three and the other two would
he prime bait for the Sugar and
Drnnge Bowls. J
Incidentally, the NCAA rules re
garding bowl games, which would
require 80 per cent of the gate
' and a third of the ticket! if or the
competing schools and that NCAA
representatives be on the boards
governing the bowls, do not gb into
, effect until after the- next bowl
games. . ’ j
Thus, there will be a bowl game
in every city, town and hamlet
again. Texas always goes in strong
for such games. Look n for at least
eight bowl games in the state in
december and January.
And while they’re at it, some of
the smaller bowls couldn’t go wrong
in seeking McMurry College. Here,
folks, is quite a football team and
with Brad Rowland, one of the
greatest backs in the nation, in
cluding all the major colleges,
would be a real attraction.

Ben ! Hogan, the great golfer
who almost lost his life in an auto
mobile accident near Van Horn last
February, is making an amazing
" ^recovery. ‘

for the Texas-Southern Methodist
football game—and to appear on
the radio—and reported he had

The best crack of the football
It was at the weekly luncheon
of Dallas sports writers Friday an4
H. N. (Rusty) Russell, assistant
Southern Method 1st University
Coach, was a guest. :
Russell, in discussing the SMjU
football team, said the boys just
couldn’t win without Douk Walker
—that the All-Amerda tjuaperf
back was absolutely essentlol. '
"But,” broke in; a writer,
beat Kctitucky last week and
«r wasn’t evch in the park—he whs
in a hospital. HoW about that?”, \
Before Russell could aobwer,
James H. Sujwart, executive seen
retary of the Southwest Confer
ence, said with a grin:
“Why, didn't you read the; pap
ers? The officials won for SMU-
They didn’t need j Walker.”
Coach Bear Bryant of Kentucky
had accused the officials of losing
the game for him!
Northway Speaks,
On Quarter Horse
Dr. J. K. Northway, veterinarian'
for the King Ranch, Kinglsvile,,
Texas, spoke Friday afternoon at
the Quarter Horse Conference on
"The Feet and Legs of the Quar
ter Horsd." j
Theme of the conference was
"What Makes a Good Quarter
Horse?” Talks were given on the
general anatomy of the quarter
horse during j the afternoon.
Dr. Njorthway stated that the
majority of the troubles in quar-
terhorses occurs below the knees
and hocks. Ah improperly balanced
diea is the chief cause of thfiS
abnormality,; he further stated.
Trimming aiid care of feet was
alio stressed by Dr. Nofthway.

the Aggie attack for the only A&M touchdown against Arkansas

attempted and netted a total of 143 yirds.

7he old saw abouK “sometimes you never really miss
