After winning a tennis championship one afternoon last summer, Spicer sneaked away to Joy-lan- d with a certain fair lady and entered a dancing contest. When all was said and done, Spicer was crowned champion tripper. TENNESSEE'S TROUBLES Coach Bob Nevland's troubles if any down at Knoxvllle correspond with the troubles of Coach Carnage. The Major Is hunting two tackles and a guard. Mr. Oamage also would appreciate a few extra tackles. In looking over the 1930 Tennessee roster, Major Neyland finds Hack, Mack, Dodd, and Disney on deck again. The first three of these gentlemen have not played in a losing game in the last two years. Tennessee came her closest to defeat in 1928 in a 0 to 0 tie with Kentucky, and again in 1929 in a 6 to 6 tie with the Wildcats. This will be Tennessee's last chance to beat Kentucky with one of the best teams in the Volunteer's history and Kentucky has ideas of her own. And speaking of material from the freshman ranks the Tennessee frosh took measure of the Kentucky Kittens, 7 to 6, last year at Knoxvllle. The Volunteer veteran backfleld is bolstered with Faust, Brackett, Gillespie and Reincke, quarters; Allen, Blumberg, McColllster, Robinson, Whittaker, and Warfleld, halfbacks; Cox, Decker and Kohlhose, fullbacks. Centre College will meet the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, October 4 as one game on one of the most ambitious schedules attempted by the Colonels in recent years. Centre also plays Northwestern, Kansas Aggies,. .Wabash, Chattanooga and others. MAYBE HE'S A WEATHER MAN "The Georgia Bulldogs this year stand out as the best football team in the Southern Conference," thus sayeth the illustrious Ed Danforth, Atlanta sports writer, whose business it is to prophecy as to who's who in the Southern Conference. If you will recall, Mr. Danforth's solemn warning to a waiting football world last fall was "Watch Clemson!". And if you remember, Kentucky1 watched Clemson so well on Stoll field that the final score was 44 to 6 with the Wildcats on the long end. Edward had a tough time "explaining" that one. We sincerely believe that Georgia has a wonderful team way down South on Sanford field. And we would rate the Bulldogs along with Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Carolina, but to say that they stand out as the best in the conference is merely an overflow of home town pride. Danforth visited the Wildcats here on the third day of practice, and Coach Gamage did not make a show of his squad. Why should he? Signal practice and blocking was the order of the day. We would like to have Mr. Danforth up for an afternoon's scrimmage a la Johnson and Kelly. COACH DellART TOOTS HIS HORN What are we supposed to think of Coach Jimmy Dellart's declaration that Duke University will have a whiz of a football team this year, and that snorts writers are making themselves ridiculous in overlooking his Carolinians in the championship race? The facts we have to go by are that Duke won four games and lost six last year and those six by scores. DeHart has a string of lettermen back and an excellent group of sophomores. Kentucky would do well to heed the warning. Anyway, Duke must play six other teams before the Wildcats trek over to Durham and we expect to have a pretty good idea by then as to bow well DeHart knows what he is talking about. L YEAR i Five Southern Conference colleges open their 1930 football schedules tomorrow. Of this number, two Washington and Lee and Virginia will be watched with Interest by Kentucky. It not only Is possible, but probable that Uncle Harry damage will have someone one deck at both tussels. Neither should have much trouble In disposing of their opening and Virginia with Roanoke. games: W. & L. with Randolph-Maco- n Saturday, September 27, Duke, another of Kentucky's foes this year, will assist in Inaugurating the 1930 Southern Conference dispute In a game with South Carolina. This is the only conference game scheduled before October 4, when nearly all the teams open their big guns. All of Kentucky's seven conference opponents will play games September 27. Georgia Tech is the only other conference team besides Kentucky to open the 1930 season October 4. A veritable football feast, appetizing enough to tickle the palate of the most meticulous sports epicure, has been prepared for the ensuing season by the country's major broadcasting networks. At least 27 of the country's leading gridiron conflicts will be put on the air by the National Broadcasting Company and the Columbia Broadcasting System, according to announcements today from headquarters of both networks. Not a single contest of any Importance has been overlooked. The football broadcasts begin on September 27, but there will be a break during the first and second weeks of. October when the world's occupy the sporting s"eries will limelight. Definite plans for world's series broadcasts have not yet been evolved but it is expected that both chains will carry complete descriptions of the particular classic. Graham McNamee and William Munday, of the National Broadcasting Co., and Ted Husing, of the Broadcasting Columbia System, have been chosen by their respective companies to do the football microphoning. The former compa ny plans to put on the air at least two games a week, probably sup plementing the WJZ and WEAF networks with a Pacific coast hookup. Columbia's schedule is as follows: September 27, Army-Bosto- n University at West Point; October 4, Southern Methodist-Notr- e Dame at South Bend; October 18, Army-Harva- rd at Cambridge; October 25, of Pittsburg; November 1, Princeton-Chicag- o; November 8, University of Illinois-Army at New York; November 15, at Princeton; November 22, Penn-Corne- ll at Philadelphia; November 29, Army-Not- re Dame at Chicago. The schedule of the National's WEAF network is as follows; October 11, at West Point; October 18, Harvard -- Army at Boston; October 25, Harvard-Dartmouat Cambridge; November 1, Dartmouth-Yal- e at New Haven; NoNovember 8 (unannounced); vember 15, at Princeton; November 22, at New Haven; November 29, Dartmouth-Lelan- d Stanford on the Pacific coast. Over the network headed by WJZ, the following games will be broadcast: October 11, Navy-NotDame at South Bend; October 19 (unannounced;) October 25, Army-Yal- e" at New Haven; November 1, Kentucky-Alabama at Lexington; November 8, Harvard-Michiga- n at Cambridge; November 15, Southern Methodist-Nav- y at Baltimore; No vember 22, at Annapolis; November 29, Army-Notr- e Dame at Chicago.

Football broadcasts In the past have been extremely popular and, perhaps, have stimulated interest in the sport to a large degree. L. Niel Plummer is Added to Faculty Former Student Accepts Position on Journalism and Publicity Staffs Mr. L. Niel Plummer, former city editor of the Lexington Herald, and a graduate of the University, has resigned his position with the Herald and has accepted a part time position on the staff of the department of Journalism. He will be in charge of four sections of freshman Journalism. Mr. Plummer has also been employed by the Athletic Council as its publicity representative for the current year. He entered upon his duties In the latter position early In August. While attending the University, Mr. Plummer was well known on the campus, especially in Journalistic circles. He served for two years on the Kernel staff, holding the position of managing editor at the end of that time. Mr. Plummer Is a member of Alpha Tau Omega social fraternity, Sigma Delta Chi. men' honorary journalistic fraternity, and Phi Beta Kappa. i a ON AIR i Intramural Greeks will have a new godfather this year. C. W. Hackensmith. who halls from Ot- 'towa, 111., and claims the Univer sity of Illinois as his alma mater, has been named to succeed Sid Roblson, and Hackensmith plans to give the university Greeks all the action they want. Hackensmlth's ambition to make Intramural athletics at Kentucky bigger and better and his genial manner and appearance should make the participation race more Interesting than ever. The schedule for this fall Includes tennis, golf and cross country. Immediate plans are being made to get the tennis and golf tournaments underway and Hackensmith Is anxious for the various fraternities to get their candidates on the firing line. Announcements will be sent out in the near future with instructions as to registration. Plans for the intramural participation club race this year includes all the events of last year with the exception of roller skating which failed to arouse much Interest last year. If there is an addition to the card, it will be fencing. In view of the fencing class being started at the university this year, Hackensmith believes that a tournament would draw sufficient entries. Intramural managers of last year and any sophomores interested are requested to get in touch with Hackensmith at once. Any sophomore who wishes to become acquainted with the managing end of sports and is willing to put in part of his spare time in the intramural office Is eligible to try out for one of the positions. Trophies will be awarded to Individuals and teams In each of the sports, Hackensmith said. Students Are Urged To Get Stirred Up While at the university, for health's sake get stirred up about something. We are assured by members of the medical fraternity that this stirring up Is most beneficial for the liver of the individual involved and it is our conviction that it will be for the good of the university in general if such takes place with every student at McGlll. Form opinions, take some side and, if possible, express your convictions in talk, and, if allowable, by action. There are enough Issues around the campus to get "het" up about something.

Wade has already tossed his hat into the ring by sending two former Alabama players to Duke this year to teach the freshmen the Wade system of football, at Alabama, THANKS, COACH BIERMAN OCTOBER Way down South In New Orleans, Coach Bernle Blerman, the papa of Tulane University s championship football team, is trying to patch up the holes left by the graduation of Banker, Armstrong and other veterans. Coach Blerman took time out from practice last week long enough to say that Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina and Georgia had the best chances to cop the crown worn by Tulane. "Those fellows Just have it," he explained. He rated Georgia Tech, Florida, Vanderbilt and Alabama in the first eight. Coach Blerman has 60 candidates for his 1930 machine. 123. I 5 6 7 89W We believe that Washington and Lee will have a "hidden player" attack this fall, and we're going to tell Mr. Gamage, too. w; & L. has backfleld man that the coaches are planning to use. They a call him "Dynamite Evans." Everybody but the freshmen at Kentucky would like to know just what Wallace Wade is thinking of these days when someone mentions the Wildcats. It seems that not so many years ago, Mr. Wade said anyway this Is Kentucky's last chance to make him swallow it. Wade goes to Duke next year. AT MOMt AT HQMg J2I31415Imm AT MOMC Virginia Polytechnic Institute, one of the conference schools not very well known here, has a freshman football squad of 200. Old Josh Cody is looking over a group of 105 yearlings at Clemson this fall. For the information of golfers at Kentucky, tickets at the Picadome Golf Club may be purchased from Daddy Boles at the men's gymnasium, three for one dollar. Said tickets are not good on Saturdays and to Accept Championship Crown By VERNON D. ROOKS Football days should be happy days at Kentucky this year. Coach Harry Gamage asks that we do not present him with the championship until he has a chance to win it but we feel generous. True, the season at Kentucky is still two weeks in the future; and true, there are seven undefeated Southern Conference teams on the Wildcat schedule; and true, there's many a slip, etc., but we're sorry, Mr. Gamage, but we're going to parlay your Cats straight on through. Kentucky has never won the Southern Conference champion ship and it seems strange to be talking of such. The sports writers also are finding it hard to stomach. They drop subtle hints about Alabama and Tennessee, and some even suggest that Kentucky should wait another year. WE NEED DETECTIVES Alabama and Tennessee will not beat Kentucky this year. If there is a hitch in the conference program it will come at the hands of Duke, Virginia, V. M. I., or Washington and Lee. Papa Gamage and Assistant Papa Shively will nurse the Wildcats day and night for the two big boys, and we are afraid that one of the four will slip in and knock out the props when someone leaves the gate open. Anyway, it might not be a bad idea to keep an eye on the whole bunch. I know people who will swear that Gamage has been caught smiling during practice sessions this year. He doesn't like to admit It; In fact, he won't, but some of us believe that Mr. Gamage has a good football team and knows it. The only bug-beIn the Wildcat camp seems to be a lack of reserves at the tackle and halfback positions. Kentucky has one of the best "first teams" in the United States. Gamage insists that it takes at least two "first teams to win a championship and he is spending these warm September afternoons trying to make twins out of each man on the first string. He would even make triplets, f THE "GUESS WHO" LINE In the middle of his line this year he will plant Howard Williams.

Johnson Is rated above Kelly by some of the old heads in the gentle art of ball "toting." Johnson can run, and he can pass. The Skipper has a quick punt that also is pleasing Gamage.

Old Tom has been a bear on defense in the early scrimmages, but Gamage is afraid of his trick shoulder and has been keeping him on offense most of the time. Carey Spicer, Dick Richards, and Bo Meyers are first string backs with gobs of promise. Richards kissed goodbye to a bad Charlie horse suffered in the Alabama game last year and is being worked at half and full. Meyers, m .e who cut capers in the Clemson game with Kelly, has been getting loose for long runs in scrimmage and Spicer is still bouncing around catching passes and sidestepping safety men.

Coming candidates for the end positions include Ralph Elevens, James Frye and George Skinner. Gamage and Shively, and Pete Drury, have a nice family of football players running aroud the lot. If they can bring them up to the way good little football players should go, we look for a bad season for Kentucky's opponents.
