Sooners Somewhat Alarmed Over
Prospects Because Men Are not
Rounding Into Condition
Norman Okla. Oct. 28 Ht-n.l Jinin
Owen for lhe past four years football
coach of the. University of Oklahoma en-
tertains some doubt as to (lie result of the
game Friday with the Razorbueks from
the University nt Arkansas.
At Lawrence in the gaine with (lie
Jaylmwkcrs Coach Owen played the same
men during the entire Maine while the
Kansas lineup contained eight new men.
This accounts for the defeat of the Soon-
er. At Manhatien it seems the Sooners
wanted to get revenue for their defeat on
the Saturday before and from the Mart
of the game against the Aggies the Okla-
homans played their best. It will bo re-
membered that ubout three weeks ago
the Jayhawkers defeated the Aggies by n
score 12 to 0 and according to the do-
pester's figures Oklahoma being 3.1 to 0
has n better aggregation than Kansas. K.
U. has been u hoodoo for the Oklahomans
for the past five five years that the
schools have been rivals. Three year ago
the Jayhawkers won the game 31 to 0;
two years ago 20 to 4; last year 15 to 0;
and this year 11 to 0.
From year to year the Sooners are
climbing up In the football world and if
the scores decrease for the next three
years In projiortion to the past four years
Oklahoma will be far superior to Kansas.
Oklahoma's coach who played quarter-
back for the Jayhawkers several seasons
assistant coach under the famous "Hurry
Up" Yost nt Michigan coach for the
"Terrible Swedes" in Kansas is making a
remarkable record as coac.lt in the South-
west. It has been shown in the past
three years that he is uble to develop n
good football team out of the poorest ma-
terial. The game Friday with the Razorbacks
will be one of the hardest struggles ever
fought on the local gridiron. There nre
two reasons for this statement: The two
teams nre evenly matched ranking about
the game as a teum; the other is tint the
two schools nre bitter rivals. In fact the
rivalry has been so Intense that all iUliletie
relations were cut off until this year. A
few year ngo when the Oklahoma football
team went to Fayetteville whei .ae Uni-
versity of Arkansas is located.it Is claim-
ed that bad treatment was given to the
players and stones were thrown nt the
Sooners when in the game. Hut nil that
old trouble will be forgotten when the
Razorbacks come here. If Oklahoma wins
the game it will be through a fair meth-
od This week the Sooners r.-s undergoing
a hard practice both in signals and scrim-
mage work. The coach will introduce
several new formations and if the team
takes to them he will have them tried in
the Arkansas game. The Sooners are in
a crippled condition and it is probable
that several of the men will enter the
game not in the pink of condition.

An effort ia being made by Prof. Mas-
terson to arrange a football game here
Thanksgiving day between the Oklahoma
City high school team and the Vini'a
boys. Oklahoma City so far this season
has triumphed over all opponents in the
west side of the state and may well be
classed as the champions of the old Ok-
lahoma portion of the state. Vinita is
yet to taste defeat and so far has never
had their goal line crossed by the enemy
and may be classed as the champions of
this side of the state. The Thanksgiving
game with Oklahoma City if it can be ar-
ranged will determine the championship
of the entire state. Oklahoma I it y is
said to have a heavier team than Vinita
but local enthusiasts say that t bunch of
lightweights representing Vinita high will
be able to trounce the lads from the me
tropolis as they have all other opponents
this season. To date Vinita's wore for
the season is 12 1 to 0.
