Observed by Watchful Eyes, Tito’s Effort^ . . . R i Tito’s Yugoslavia seems less concerned over the prospects of a third world war within the forseeable future than we are. Through Moscow and Belgrade lash one another constantly with hot propaganda broadcasts" and charges and counter charges, there is no serious threat of war between the two countries, an AP wire release tells us. Instead of war, it’s real ly peace that Yugoslavs are bent upon. A vast building program is being car ried on in Tito’s country—factories, roads, railroads, housing projects. Of course, he has a few tanks and a division or so of infantry lined up along his frontier nest to the Cominform nations, but Yugoslavia itself is betting on peace. I 1 . Last week, when Russia celebrated the thirty-second anniversary of the Russian Revolution, Yugoslavia hailed the people of Russia, but not their leaders. Politely .(or is it that?) Yugoslavia Was saying to A the Russians, "We like^our Communism, but your leaders are messing it up for you.” Comparatively weak, Yugoslavia has taken a heartening stand agaipst becom ing a puppet state of the Kremlin. Though this country favors Yugoslavian disregard of Russian efforts to bring them into line, we cannot extend open arms to Marshal Tito and Ids cohorts. i . !| Tito seems to be playing both sides (the East and &e West) against one an other and hoping he will come ouf to the better. His ambitious programs of domes tic improvement rather than military pre paredness promise to raise the living stan dard within his country. This improvement will develop along the social, cultural, and economic lines of socialism—socialism a la Moscow. Na tions near Russia who admire Yugoslavia and yet fear to asgume her strained rela tions with Russia, are regarding carefully what developments Yugoslavia can achieve without Mother Russia’s blessings. If Tito lifts Yugoslavia out of the Com munist orbit and also raises the Yugoslav ian standard, other nations hear her will be encouraged to bolt the party line, and build for themselves rather than let Moth er Russia plan their development.

The year thal. Bill DeCorrovant, of Chicago’s Austin high school, scored 212 points and claimed a National Record, I had to fight the combined strength of the wire ser vices to prove that a lad named Willie Zapalac, later an Aggie star, had run up 245 points that year but jwas second to Dean Bagley, later to defeat Texas and hand the Aggies the 1941 champjonship. Bagley had scored something like 267 points that last year at San Saba high in West Texas before he “jined’’ up at TCU. Todd's record topped all those. Then I had to battle the Foot ball Guide editors to get. Todd’s record into the official record book. I had to battle the sports edi tors of the Washington, D.C. news papers back in 1939, when Dick signed with the Redskins, in order to make them believe that the “Crowell Cyclone” was as good as he actually was and that he really had scored all the points credited to him in one year. I strewed that 'record from pil lar to post until I thought I had made it stick. Clarence Weikel suc ceeded me' as sports publicity di rector and he in turn by the pre sent holder of the job, Dub King. Both of them accepted the record as fact and included it in their annual football brochures. Dub has it in his Dope Book, this year and it must have been accepted because the party responsible for putting out the home Texas Aggie Foot ball Programs saw fit to include that record in the data on Dick Todd, the present Aggie backfield coach. Just open any Aggie foot ball program of this season and look it up. And with all that effort to make the scoring record so well known that never would be questioned again—what hoppen? The Bait cartoonist gives Todd 327 points 1 for which one of the editors apol ogizes in the cut line by reducing the 327 total to 321. Will all concerned please take one minute for silent kicking of their facsimile Kigmlns. THK RKC- ORD IS AND WILL REMAIN School. In addition to making that number himself, Todd also passed to mates for several others, includ ing some points after touchdown rather than kick the point or run for the tally himself. Yours truly, Henry B. Mr Elroy, ’38 College Station, Texas (Sport’s Editors’ Note: With deepest apologies to reader Mc- Elroy we stand corrected on Todd’s high school scoring rec ord whieh is 318 points for one season. On the day we prepared the cu(line for cartoonist Trant’s cartoon, one of the Batt sports writers had borrowed our “facts and figures” book from the Batt office to study for a Campus- ology quiz. Consequently the sports editors had to delve into their short memories and try to conjure up the correct total for Todd’s record. We came pretty close, you’ll have to admit.)

GOLLOB My Dream Is Yours (Warn ers) starring Doris Day and Jack Canon (Gulon) “My Dream Is Yourq”, a recent Doris Day technicolored musical bounces into Guion today with the right amount of tunes, talent, and tempo to make it highly palatable screen fare, i Cleverly written and briskly paced, My Dream Is Yours uses a plot that has served as the framework for many a past mu sical comedy-romance, and is used primarily as a showcase for the infectious vitality and mel low voice of warbler Doris Day. Jiltiss Day delivers several Harry Warren numbers such as "M y Dream Is Yours," “Someone Like You," ‘Til String Along With you," etc. in her down-to-earth, cuddlesome style, using a melo dious mixture of zing, zest; and girl-next-door warmth. The lightweight story, full of complications and corn, is of the Cinderella vintage.

Washington (AP)—A jury trial in the supreme court— a rare occurrence in United States history—is being asked by Louisiana in the tidelands pil Case. The state, through oncj. of its attorneys—F. Trowbridge Vom Baur—filed a motion with the court today asking the trial in event the Court rejects Louisiana’s motion for dismissal of the government’s action. “There have been only three in stances in history when there has been a jury trial before the su- 1 preme court.” Vom Baur told a reporter. Normally the court hears appeals of cases which have been tried in Other courts. Vom Baur said the state’s, theory is asking such a trial is that the case is an action to recover real property. He said that under the seventh amendment to the con stitution a defendant in such a case is entitled to a jury trial. The federal government Is ask ing the supreme court to rule that the government has full power and dominion over the off shore Gulf coast tidelands, or has title to the rich oil-bearing lands. In the case of California tidelands, the court has ruled that the federal govern ment has full power and doipinioh. Louisiana last week admitted that the government has full regula tory power over the off shore lands, as the court said in the California case. But Louisiana contends the government does not have tit|c and hence has no right to any royal ties on oil produced from the land, Vom Baur said he does not know just how the supreme court might handle a jury trial or just whore the line might be drawn be- tween the jury’s functions and thoso of the high court’s. Texas, which is a defendant in a similar case, has asked thgt the court ; appoint a commissioner to take teatimony. Suffering the usual to at first, Doris gets he chance at the big time tistic crooner Lee Bowman hits bottle an<I can’t do his show. She is substituted for him, from .then on to fame, while slips to the bottom. After car rying the torch for Bowman a while, she finally awakens to h|s everythlng-for-me character, and turns to Jack Canon, who’s been waiting around all the time. The singing and peppy personal ity of Doris Day,! combined With the broad yet biting and wftty comedy generated by big, brash Jack Carson, fork-fongued Eve Ar den and her tart wisecracks, suave Adolphe Menjou, and fat-cheeked S. Z. Sakall, who has parlayed a German accent into fame as com ic support, make "My Dreai Yours" one of the best of the s; of musicals which have lately gracing our local screens. • 8 ! .
