Supporters fjpm several other uni- versities came along to pick up the chal- lenge, but when the smoke had cleared it seemed to the voting jury that Mr. Olcott had just about won his iase. Jt was Frank Hinkey, \the disembodied ^pirifc , f who began the ^parad^irf fine Vale ends around 1889. v *\' Hinkey was a four-year All-Amer- ican i .(»UK.Q^el'be^ends, of all time. Later on Olcott himself was a high class end and after that TomSnevlin and Tod Kafferty came'\along to strengthen Yale's claim. Both were great ends. After that John Reed Kilpatrick, now General Kilpatrick, came along to add further prestige to Eli's prominence on the flanks Kilpat- rick was a 200 pound track man who played football with a fire and fer- \or seldom equalled. Yale then offered Doug Bomeisler, one of the game's deadliest tacklers iii: spite of a bad shoulder. Shortly after Bomeisler left there were Fishwick and Scott and after these two; there were Larry Kelly and Choo-ehoo Train, a string com- bination. %*•?'••. Kelly was one of Joe|||&'s best receivers and Tram oriejfe the best defensive .ends; of j^'Stp||str, ; -''. ; ; ; tirte'&^a^othe/i^^Jeniis, in- cluding Cpmeripri * Sb'fie above is t nly a partial list. Buti.when you have such fiames as fflffiey;.Sfiey- 1 n, Eafterty, Kilpatriek,;• Bomeisler, I-'isbwick, Seott, Keliy, Train, you have something to argue about.

Especially Army. But if you care to go back as far as 1890; I believe the high average for able flankmen will^gd to Yale, •j mean going away. And I almost forgot one Alonzo Stagg, now a top coach at 81. If v the argument had turned to the best passing* xjolleges v 'the contest would be much closer. TCU can offer Sammy Baugh and Dave O'Brien. Lou Little at Colum- bia can present Sid Luckman and Paul Governali. ^ , Notre Dame and Michigan move well up with such men as Gus -Do- rais, George Gipp, Benny Friedman, net overlpoking a young -fellow by the name ef Bertelli. Duke had a star entry in Ace Parker, one of the best all-around backs that football has known. But when you get down to what is technically known as \brass tacks,\ I think we have to slip the chaplet of wild apple blossoms to TCU in honor of Baugh and O'Brien, and to Co- lumbia for Sid Luckman and Paul \<Jovernali. Big and Little Men The arrival of Howard Schulz and Johnny Gee in the, same ballpark shows again that any form of human anatomy can handle a job in sport. The contrast would be extended if we only had Peewee Reese and Rab- bit Maranville around. Schulz and Gee, placed end to end, cover 13 feet, 2% inches of space. Maranville and Reese eould only muster slightly over 10 feet. The Pirate's Johnny Gee at 6 feet 8 inches is the tallest man I've ever seen in baseball. And the Dodgers Schulz at 6 feet 6% inches is the next. Babe Ruth weighed 253 pounds the year he knocked* off his 60 homers, but Wee Willie Keeler at 118 had a lifetime batting average up with the Babe. Herman Hickman, the new Army ' line coach, who weighed 280 at Ten- nessee, could outrun most of _ his fast backs. Chigger Brown aj^^wanee, weight- ing 110 pounds, played four years in the big time witheut an injury. Tichencr through five years at Auburn and Georgia, weight 114, made all-southern quarterback four seasons. Not overlooking Dave O'Brien, the TCU-Eagles star; who through six. seasons of college and pro football was not even badly bruised. Fast, small men are bard to tackle solidly.. Roger B.

SQUEAKING FLOORS Question: How can a floor squeak be stopped 9 Answer: When the underside of a floor is exposed, as it may be from a cellar, the -movement of loose boards can be seen when a squeak- -ing place is walked on The loose- ness can be taken out and the squeak stopped by driving the thin end of a shingle between the board and- the supporting beam. When the underside of a floor is not open, the 'js'aueak can be taken out* by nailing \through the floor to tighten the boards against the beams. This begins by locating the positions of the beams The direction of beams, andrtfejyi^ separations.^usually can be'sien in cellar and^attic; beams elsewhere in the house are likely to follow. Two-inch or two-and-a- half-inch finishing nails, which have small hea.ds, should be used. Drive these in pairs at opposite angles, sinking the heads below the surface with a nail set. Holes above tne heads can be' filled, with plastic wood Sometimes a squeak can be taken out by working talcum pow- der into the cracks between beards. • * * PAINT STAINS Question How can I remove paint stains from Windows; linoleum, hard?, wood floors and fixtures' such as lights, brackets, reds, etc., made of brass and other metals?

Storm windows would not only stop the condensation but would keep your house warmer and save fuel. • » * Plate-Glass mirrors .Question: I have three heavy plate-glass mirrors which I would like to fasten in my kitchen. How can holes b^ made in the corners, and what type of screws should be used in fastening.the mirrors to the walls? Answer: You should have the holes drilled by a dealer in plate glass, who has the equipment for this kind of work. Too much risk is involved for an amateur to at- tempt the job. You can get the name of a firm dealing in hardware and fasteners for hanging mirrors by inquiring of the Architects Sam- ples Exhibit, 101 Park Avenue, New York city. The mirrors should have good quality silvering to withstand the moisture of a kitchen. * * * Suede-Bound Books Question: I recently purchased an edition of books bound in suede leather. It had been stored in a- house that was unoccupied for a long'while, 'and the books are badly mildewed. Is there anything to ap'- ply to the bindings to take off the mold? Answer: Remove the mildew with a brush made especially for suede leather; do nbt use too much pressure. What mold remains may be removed by wiping with a cloth damp with alcohol. There are sev- eral types of leather dressings made especially for leather book- bindings. Your public library may be able to give you the name of this dressing. » * » Cement'Walk Question: I would like to make a cement walk about one foot wide and 35 feet long. How much cement, sand and gravel wiB I need? I want to make it about three\ mcne's'cle'ep. Answer: Concrete walks should be at least four inches deep. For com- plete information on laying concrete walks, as well as proportions and amount-of rnateriahneeessary, ask the Portland Cement 1 Association, 33 West Grand avenue, Chicago, m., to send you a copy 'bf their tree booklet on the subject ON THE HOME FR0N - By VIRGINIA VALE Released by Western Newspaper Union. W HILE making \Sahara\ for Columbia, Bruce Benrfett met a marine who'll have to be referred to merely as Jbe r the marine. x Joe-'was on leave after some tough Guadalcanal fighting, and due soon to return to the South Pacific. The actor told Joe about a Guate- malan machete he'd collected when he was making a Tarzan serial about ten years ago. \That's a little some- thing I'd like to have,\ said Joe, so Bennett sent it to him Last week a V-Mail note from Joe said: \My machete is the pride of the outfit I spent two solid weeks sharpening it. And brother, I ainft out to cut hay!\ Bennett wishes he'd had dozens of them to hand over.

Just a natural—The soldiers sta- tioned at Camp v Ellis, near Lewiston, 111., were trying to find just the right girl to name \Miss Camp Ellis,\ and wound up by selecting Anita Ellis, songstress of the Jack Carson show on CBS. Every now and then Hi Brown, producer and director of \The Ad- ventures of Nero Wolfe,\ runs into an old-timer in radio who reminds him of his first program on the air. It was called \High-Brow Readings by Hi Brown,\'and he'd rather for-' get it. Three years ago an aspiring young actor named Curtis Budolf failed to obtain a bit part in a little theater, production in Cleveland, and was ad- vised to try some otber line ef work. Recently Metro staged a first show- ing on \Salute to the Marines\ in Cleveland, and an actor named Don- ald Curtis, christened Curias Budolf, had a leading role in the Wallace Beery starrer. A prop man on \The Fallen Spar- row\ set laboriously made \snow\ by flaking ice into a freezing bin— and returned from lunch to find that John Garfield \and Walter Slezak had returned from their lunch and used it all up throwing snowballs at Maureen O'Hara and Director Rich- ard Wallace. When they , learned how much labor had been involved, they pitched in and made more.
