the only team In the district to
give the Uulldogs any serious com-
petition . Read what he says In
his Sunday column:
By HILL MAYES
"The last peep we had thru the
knothole and Incidentally the last
for ubout a week as wr have giv-
en a week In which to "See Amer-
ica First." failed to bring out nny
mention of Segars who Is holding
down th center position on the
llulldog line This was not itn over-
sight because In the preliminary
prhotlceH the center has little to
do with the succeM of the signal
practice. Segars has been doing his
dally stint to the satisfaction of
Bck Curtis and Is about the only
iiHin on the team who doos not
hnvs Kme pretty stiff competition

starts and there Is a little defen-
sive work to be done. Segars will
have hta opportunity to shine.-

Fulreloth can fill In at quarter
and Yonkor at tackle. By switch-
ing his llnc-up some he can have
a good relief man at any position
So fur no relief has been de-
veloped for Segars though there Is
plenty of good nutcrtnl that may
be worked Into good centers later

Genuine "BULL" DURHAM Tobacco at 50 marked the entrance of my father
Pcrcival S. Hill into the Tobacco business. For 14 years he was President of The
American Tobacco Company. The fine quality and popularity of "BULL" DURHAM
were always subjects of great pride to him. Therefore it is particularly gratifying to
to offer this important saving and service to the American
public at this time.
