NEW YORK, Dec. 3.--UP)-The All-i
America swing back to the sector that
cradled this foundation for annual
football argument,,well under way last
season, reached a peak' in the spec-
tacular campaign of 1937.
To the ancient and battle-scarred
East today goes the distinction of
placing no fewer than five players on
the big all-star eleven, selected by the
Associated Press on the basis of a
nationwide survey of expert opinion.
On the main gridiron fronts, only
the Old South, including the rugged
Southwest area, rivaled the East for
individual honors in a season marked
otherwise by (1) California's swift re-
turn to the West Coast heights, (2)
a sharp dip in the fortunes of Big
Ten teams, including even Minnesota,
erstwhile national leader, and (3) a
competitive pace so swift that only a
handful of major teams survived pit-

East's Margin Wider
The East, with four teams in the
nation's first 10 and intersectional
prestige such as it hasn't known in
fully a dozen years, dominated the
All-America debate for the second
straight year and by a wider margin.
On the squad of all-stars as a whole,
comprising 33 players, there are an
even dozen representatives of the Old
Guard's domain. Pittsburgh placed
two on the first team, Marshall (Big-
gie) Goldberg at halfback and Tony
Matisi, 224-pound tackle.
Noteworthy, because he represents
a sector rarely enjoying the national
all-star spotlight, is the fact that the
first team includes Byron Raymond
(Whizzer) White, ace halfback of
Colorado University.
Ends Are Opportunists
White and Goldberg, the climax
runner and sparkplug of the powerful
Pittsburgh array, share the All-Amer-
ica backfield posts with Yale's re-
nowned Clinton Edward Frank and
California's Samuel Blake Chapman,
the quadruple-threat man of the Pa-
cific Coast championship team.
Among the ends, the opportunist.
type rivaled the steadier, more rugged
defensive variety for recognition.
Notre Dame's Charles Sweeney and
Cornell's Jerome (Brud) Holland-
enjoy no great all-around margin over
at least half a dozen rival wingmen.
Holland, first Negro to make the
All-America first team since Paul
Robeson, of Rutgers, was picked at
end by Walter Camp in 1918, complet-
ed his second outstanding season at
Cornell with a rare ironman record.
Center Choice Was Close
The choice for center, Carl Colum-
bus Hinkle, Jr., of Vanderbilt, likewise
ran the gantlet of closest scrutiny be-
fore getting the nod over such extra-
ordinary performers as Ki Aldrich,
Texas .Christian and Alex Wojcie-
chowicz, Fordham's mopper-upper.
Filling out the All-America line is
relatively easy, at least in so far as
putting the finger on the season's out-
standing guards is concerned. Joe
Routt, Texas A. & M. iron man, came
with a rush down the stretch to keep
the spot he was awarded on last year's
For the tackles, it's impossible to
go wrong by picking from the two
stoutest lines in the East such stal-
warts as chunky, granite-like Ed
Franco, of Fordham, and rangy, pow-
erful Tony Matisi of Pittsburgh.
Chose Second, Third Teams
Three Michigan men were picked on
the honorable mention list by the As-
sociated Press. Stark Ritchie, half-
back, Don Siegel, tackle, and Ralph
Heikkinen, guard, were the players.
Picked on the second team were
Pete Smith. Oklahoma and William
Jordan, Georgia Tech, ends; Vic Mar-

CHICAGO, Dec. 3. -(R)-A new

Success in the long fight appeared

nights a week.
Revelations in certain schools a
year ago that many athletes, par-

receiving proper nourishment swung
many dissenters over to the coaches
who had advocated the training
