By Lou Little Columbia University head coach written for Nea service and Ames daily Tribune new York a football will be i better game this fall than Ever i before. Largely because it will be j the same game the boys played last. J year. Players coaches officials i and fans have been spared the necessity of Reading up on new i rules. They la know what a what i fro in the beginning. The game right now is nicely balanced. If there is an Edge it goes to the offence. That is a Speed and de a Nerous amount ted by the sport Larry Kelley a much discussed kicking of a free Ball in the Yale Navy game last year caused the Rule makers to decree booting Ball even accidentally Means its loss at Point of fou and everyone else will have the i team a Little Edge but the result effect of making officials More i will be More care in kicking off careful perhaps a bit More deliver j and More preparation for this play which is one of the most thrilling and interesting in football. It Means better kicking and any trend toward better kicking in football helps the game. The committee has moved in the direction of a More exact less Fluke game by ruling that a free Ball May not be kicked or kicked it should he. Bowe Ceplon with a g of skill Are deman As it stands today i am convinced committee was win the near hysteria a season regarding that the rules o in not heeding t the end of last proposed rules sometimes i believe a detest ii has been made too quickly a second thought and an open mind that will not Call interference unless there has been a deliberate attempt by the defensive or offensive player to interfere will go a Long Way toward Clearing up the 1 at intentionally or otherwise. Larry perplexities of the play. Kelly a accidental booting of the i pitching has Iowa state and Mant factors j Duke a a Quot of yanks have antipathy j state football i for southpaws is Moines a. a Iowa state College and Drake University by George Kirksey provide the a Dong lntere8t Amon. United press staff correspondent. New York . Analysis Iowa College football teams this of the world series pitching Talent i week end. Affords All sorts of possibilities. I the cyclones meet Northwestern on current form past world series University at Evanston while record and 1937 achievements the Drake plays notre Dame at South Yankees must be conceded the Edge but other factors demand consideration. Chief among these is the Yankees growing antipathy for Southern pitching. National league partisans argue that the Yankees will find Carl Hubbell and Cliff Melton Poison. That May he the answer whether Hubbell and Melton can weave a a Pell of Southpaw magic around the Yankees. The yanks appear to have the no. I pitchers for the series in lefty Gomez almost certain to pitch the opening game. American leagues argue that if Gomez beat the giant twice last year he is a cinch to repeat this fall inasmuch As he is far better. He has won 21 games and lost to. But his pitching has been even better than his record indicates. Yanks have also red ruffing bump Hadley and Monte Pearson. Ruffing who started two games last year and did no twin either probably will pitch the second game for the yanks. With 19 victories and 7 defeats. Ruffing is enjoying the finest year of his career. The Burden will be considerably greater on the giants pitches than on the yanks. Bill Terry knows the giants can twin without getting Good pitching backed by a tight defense. The yanks might easily win Camps behind ragged pitching because of their High scoring machine. Backing up his two southpaws one Surprise May follow another at Iowa University Bend tomorrow. Today a feature attraction in the state brings together Grinnell and the now a state teachers in a night game. The teachers Are favored because of their showing against Iowa state last week. Four Iowa conference teams go out of the Loop for games today. Dubuque plays the Lacrosse wis., teachers Wartburg engages Graceland Columbia entertains the Haskell indians and Buena Vista meets the Wayne neb., teachers. A Morningside takes on North Dakota state in the other Iowa College game of the Day. Tomorrows schedules bring together Coe and Cornell. Luther and Western Union Cornell and Lawrence upper Iowa and Penn Illinois College and Parsons and Iowa Wesleyan and the Western Illinois teachers. Strong Tutor Elf ten meets Grinnell Fri. Cedar Falls la. A a warning his men against Over Confidence. Coach Clyde Starbeck was All set to Send virtually the Samp Iowa state teachers College eleven against Grinnell Friday night at 8 of clock As that which started at Ames a week ago. The Only change will see George Notcher hard lilting so Terry has Hal Schumacher and Pho More real icing Walter Brown Harry Gumbert. Schumacker. Senior at the right halfback Post. Knocked Cut in the second game of fearful that the Tutor eleven last year came Back to heat the j might consider the pioneers a soft copyright 1937 by United Prest Iowa City or a one Surprise May follow another at Iowa where a new football coaching staff pitched into one of the toughest assignments in the big ten this season. When the Hawk Keyes Cut Short their training for a trip to Seattle muffled Washington a Power plays and forced the huskies into the air the rest of the conference took notice. Big ten teams which figured to Romp through Iowa a riddled line almost As they pleased May have to revise their estimates More each week As irl Tubbs keen tactician elected to succeed Ossie sol emas head coach completes his Job of rebuilding the Hawks his pressing need is for guards and tackles for Tubbs discovered he had to build with the remnants of last seasons disappointing team which had line strength Only at the ends and Center. A my boys have the weight and height but they Lack a explosion a a Tubbs said a very few of them have the fire inherent in football players. Key men in the line will be capt. Homer Harris and Bob Lannon two of the finest ends in the league and Dick Anderson senior Center who understudied ted Osmaloski for two years and ended up at least As Good. All three Are excellent defensive players. Despite the loss of Oze Simmons sprinting negro Ball Carrier the Backfield is in fair shape. Tubbs and his Backfield assistant Ernie Nevers think they have the Best Sophomore Back in the conference in Nile Kinnick 170-Pound Quarter Back. Kinnick is a triple Treater and one of the smartest Iowa Field generals since Little Joe Laws. Bush Lamb and Jack Eicherly. Two veterans will handle the halfback and de Mclain 200-Pounti Sophomore fullback Likely will retain a starting Job. Other Good backs include Bill Gallagher Floyd Dean and Russell Raisk All Sopho mores and Frank Balazs Reserve fullback. Tubbs will use the double Wing Back formation at Lea for a while. Henry Luebcke 253-Pound soph Omore May have solved one of the open guard positions. Tubbs will count on Shipley Farron a letter Man or Wilbur Nead senior for the other. At the tackles against Washington he started Frank Gallagher and Cherley Brady two upperclassmen switching later to Floyd Deheer biggest player Iowa Ever used and Charles Irvine a Sophomore. Harris first negro Ever to Captain a big ten football team unquestionably is one of the out great standing ends in the conference. Minnesota was the Only team he faced last season which failed to Call him the Best end they met All year. The gophers thought Lannon on the other end was As Good or better. Both Harris and Lannon Are powerful defensive players. Lannon perhaps is the better pass received. Iowa a schedule probably is too strenuous for much improvement in standings Over last year. The Hawk eyes meet Wisconsin Purdue Minnesota and Indiana in the conference Bradley tech and Nebraska outside. United press predicts Victory for favourites in football games yanks in the fifth game. A i expect to see officials More conscious this year than Ever be of re of the fact to at the infraction is net necessarily and invariably Hall in the attempt to recover a fumbled punt against Navy last fall probably had a lot to do with the adoption of this Rule. When Kelley changes on Forward pass interference. The problem was considered at length. But going Over it front and Hack up and Down the rules makers could find nothing to put into word that would solve the problem. I am confident however that Good will grow rut of All the talk that followed last years big games the fault of a defensive player. Too j finally recovered the Ball it was often officials have failed to realize j on Navy a two Yard line instead of that the offensive player going on about the 20. Where he had kick Down under a pass can also in it. Yale scored As a result and won Tefere with the defense. The game. The change in rules which Abol a in that particular Case.

Now if the Gigl filame of some of last they Are going to kick from thru a big games.
