Unknowns Rival Pro Grid Stars By DICK CL'LLUM Minneapolis; Tribunal Spirts Writer An unusual galaxy of new football talent will be under scrutiny in Parade stadium Saturday night when the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants clash. Increasingly intensive and smartly directed scouting by the professional teams has developed developed new veins of talent from small colleges which would have been wholly overlooked overlooked only a few years ago. Players who had little or no national attention while in college college are often pronounced su perior to tne neraiaea ah-Americans ah-Americans ah-Americans after the professional professional coaches have watched them Figures both on the same practice field. 1 Tomorrow's rivals present much particularly interesting new talent, some with big college college reputations, some without. Little known in the north as a collegian was Buford Long of Florida, playing right half for the Giants. His early showing, showing, including the 90-yard 90-yard 90-yard touchdown touchdown run from kickoff in the Green Giant Bowl game Tuesday, Tuesday, has convinced Coach Steve Owen he has found a good one. AS A COUNTER TO rookie Long, the Packers present right halfback Al Carmichael of Southern California and, in the same position, Don Barton of Texas. Barton was a complete unknown as a college player, yet he has been one of the most sensational performers in the Packers' camp. His great speed, hard running and nifty pass catching have clinched him a job. The Packers also have Gib tion of a seasoned pro in any one of four positions. Other first year men: FOR THE PACKERS Floyd Harrawood, TuUa, and Jack Morgan, Michigan State, tackles: Dick Flowers, Northwestern quarterback; quarterback; Bill Forrester. SMU. linebacker or fullback: Val Joe Walker, SMU, defensive halfback; BUI Georges, Texas, defensive end; Jim Rlngo. Syracuse, offensive center. FOR THE GIANTS Dick Christiansen, Arizona, and Jim Cleveland. Sul Roes, ends: Roosevelt Brown. Morgan State. Cal Roberta, Gustavua Adolphua. Bill Skyinskiu, Syracuse, Syracuse, tackles, Chester Lagod. Chattanooga, and Jack Stroud, Tennessee, guards; Clarence Avlnger, AlaOama. quarterback, linebacker and as a punter; Don Gott-lob, Gott-lob, Gott-lob, Sam Houston State, quarterback; Paul Douglass, Illinois, defensive halfback, and as a rookie. He has every ac- ac- i siv naif back. Dawson of Texas. Dawson was almost entirely overlooked in the All-America All-America All-America selections last fall but, when he appeared on the same field with many of them in the College All-Star All-Star All-Star game in Chicago, he was elected the most valuable player. LEO MILES, an unknown from little Virginia State, is called the most polished all-around all-around all-around offense-defense offense-defense offense-defense back ever to come up to the Giants
