EDITOR i i J IN IHE BOX ing record in we football history, topping lational Football league runners five straight yeats, 1957-1961. Jolmny Lujack was a strong runner and defensive player as well as a pinpoint passer from the T. In a poll of former All-Americans in 1950, Lujack was voted the quarterback position on Colliers Magazine Mid-Certury All-America. End Don Hutson, remembered as a pass catcher ater his record.shattering pro career with the Green Bay Packers, also was a dan- gerous bell carrier in his enUeglate days and broke up several key games with long runs. Mike Ditka, 6-feet-4, 240 pounds, is a great' receiver, fast, a tremendous bocker and rug- ged enough to .star ,as middle linebacker on defense. In short order, he rrrade Alt-Pro end for the Chicago Bears. Sharing Diamond Jubilee tackle honors with Minnesota's Nagurski, Wilbur "Fats" Henry was one of the early football giarts. He also was one of football's greatest punters. AfLer turning pro with the old Canton Bun- dogs, he beamed a 94-yard punt again,st Akron, an all-time record. Atguard, bruising Harry Smith specialized in pul lg out of the line to lead interference as Southern Cal achieved an undefeated 1939 season and victory in the Rose Bowl. Like Lujack, Smith also was named on Critter's Mid-Century All-America. "Pudge" Heffel.finger, a three-time All- America, provided interference in a primitive fashion. He ware a lather hard,le attached to the back of his belt and on running plays, the ball carrier grbbed the handle and fol- lowed him through the line. When the .run- ner was tackled, Heffelfinger dragged him ahead by sheer force. Those were the days when you could push and pull the runner to gain extra yarda,ge. Anchoriag the line at center, Adolph "Germany" Schlz was probably the first rov- ing center, ready on defense to bring down a runner at the /'lank. He ,also was one of the first centers to master the sirl srmback. Schulz was a staraiout when Michigan dom- inated the Midwest under Coach Fielding "Hury Up" Yest in the easy 1900s. Yest, who saw a lot of great players, insisted he never saw a better lineman than Schulz. "The future may produce gratex play- ers," Fay writes, "but up to this time I think these have been the greatest." Football fans will have an opportunity to see the 1964 All-America  team ,as selected by the American Football Coaches Associa- tion in their official movie to be released as a pubic service exclusively through Allstate Insurance Companies at the end of this sea- son. Home & Highway magazine points out that clubs or groups Shroughout the United States and Cagada may arrange for viewing the 16mm sound film of the 1963 All-America team immed,iately wthout charge by con- tacting any Allstate office. End Mike-Ditka of the Chicago Bears and Fullback Jim Brown o4 the Clevelard Browns ave the yotmgest phyers on collegiate foot- ba,ll's all-Ume, All-America team named to- day to rrmrk the 75th anniversary of She All- America tradition. Ditka, All-America with the University of Pittsburg .in 1960, ,arid Brown, Atl-Ameaica with Syracuse University in 1956, were chosen ith nne other all,timers including Wflllam W. "Pudge" Hefelfiager of Yale, who was on the first All-America, chosen by Walter Ca, rap in 1889. The all-time selections were male by vet- eran sports writer Bill Fay, producer of the ,annual All-America team movie for the Amer- ican Fo0tball Coaches Associat2on which rames the top 11 phyers each fall. Fay's Diamond Jubilee nominations, ppearing in Allstate Insurance Compardes' curre Home & Highway Magazine, are: Ends---Don Hutson, Alabama (1934), Mike Ditka, PRt (1960). Tackles--Bronko Nagurski, Minnesota (1929), Wilbur "lats" Henry, Washington and Jefferson (1919). Guards---William W. "Pudge" Hetfeffing- er, Yale (1889-90-91), Harry SmRh, Southern Cakifornia (1939). CenterAolph "GermmW" Sehulz, Mich- igan (1907). Quarterback--Johnny Lujack, Notre Dame (1946-47). Halfbacks---Jim Thorpe, Carlisle (1911-12), Harold "Red" Grarge, Illois (1923-24-25). Fullback---Jim Brown, Syracuse (1956). "Urdersemaadably, '' say Fay, "any lineup ttmt purports /o pick the 11 greatest sitars from a total of more than 800 All-Americans is open to argument. The g, ame itself has changed, and comparisons of phyers from different eras are difficult. Hxever, these selections reflect the opinions of knowledge- able men who eiSher coched or played for or against these Diamond Jubilee nominees." The nation's top grid coaches, for example, amed Bronko Nagurski the greatest all- ,around football player of all time in a 1944 poll. As Southern Cat',s Coach Jeff Cravath said, "Eleven Nagurskis could wreck ,any other one-name team." An All-America tackle, he .also starred at end and fullback. Jim Tharpe, who scored 198 poknts for Carlisle, was described by veteran coach John Heisman as a star punter, drop kicker and passer. "At blocking and end running cer- tainly we've not Woduced his master," he said. Red Grange, college football's most spec- tacular ball carrier, made  famous five touchdown performance against Michiga in 1924. The first four times he touched tle ball he scored four times, rumaing back one kick- off 95 yards, another kickoff 67 yards, and goin,g into the end zone from 56 and 44 yawls out on plays from scrimmage.

Washington Bar Auoclation THE MISSING WORKER Jake was a good farm laad, and M. Jones did not want to lose ,him. Therefore, whe,n J, ake expressed an knerest in going to another farm to work, Jones paid him several months wages in advance in order to persuade im to stay. Sake did stay for ahile, but at the end of the month e told Jones that he was oing .t quit. "You can't quit now," said Jones, "I paid you in darance. You have to stay and work out what I paid you." Can Jones farce Joke to stay and work on his rm? No, said the Alabama Court of appeals. A farm hborer, wvrking for a mortMy salary under a verbal contract, has a legal right to end ,his contract and voluntarily leave hs erm ptoyer's services at tle end of a month. In fact, such an agree- ment can be termirrated by either party at the end of ary month. Acts At Own Risk An employer acts at his own risk in overpaying an em- ployee.

Cur- iously, they said nothing about the dignity involved in taking public welfare. * * * . This episode is only interest- ing insofar as it applies to the larger crisis coming up created by the Congressional ending of the "bracero" program. For many years the agricul- ture of California, Arizona, New Mexico and various other states has depended on some 61,000 Mexican nationals brought in under a set of rules formulated and overseen by Federal authorities.

In addition, although the work is on a piece work pay- ment plan, they are guaranteed a minimum of $1 per hour. However, when peaches, grapes, lettuce, tomatoes, and other crops are in peak harvest, it has not been unusual for a man to average $40 per day. At the end of the season they are transported back to Mexi- co with their saved earnings, and in the off-season are not around to become public charg- es of the taxpayers of the U.S. Labor leaders had long fought this system inasmuch as they cannot collect dues from these Mexicans. They were joined by a lot of "do-gooders" under the category of social welfare groups, with the result that Congress voted to abandon the plan. Of course, the big argument was that the Mexicans were taking jobs that unemployed Americans should have. California growers, seeking to work out a solution without Mexican nationals this current season spent thousands of dol- lars bringing in unemployed workers from Mississippi, Tex- as and other states. But the experience has been that some 70% are either incapable of per- forming the tasks, or quit.
