Coach Fred C. Thomson stressed offensive tactics in the early practices of the week but placed hi.s varsity on defense in most of Thursday's scrimmage. Halfback Neil Martin was out of uniform Thursday for the second straight day with n sprained ankle but the squad's strength remained almost normal when End Jim Benton returned after a two-dny layoff to favor a cold. Thomson said Martin and Halfback Ralph Rawlings probably would not play in the Saturday game. , '-• The Razorbacks emphasized forward passes in workouts this week although a number of running plays were handed out by the red and white mentors..

Last year this player made the Arkansas all-state team, and is reported to be playing better ball this year. Quimby at the other tackle hits the 188-pound mark, and while playing his first year as a member of the Hope club, gained valuable experience at Camden high school last year. Strange as it may sound, Reese at right end was the leading scorer of the team last year. He is a great pass catcher, standing 6 feet, 3 inches tall. Last season he was credited with a I touchdown against about every oppo- | nent of the Hope team except Pine ANOTHER SMART USED CAR BUYER —Night Action Photo by The Star TOP—The Benton ball-carrier, extreme right, is downed at the line of scrimmage. Captain G. V. Keith ' (No. 27), in the center of the picture, is coming around to back up the play, while the rest of the Hope defense, five strong, rush up from the left. BOTTOM—This was a tough picture—trying to catch a falling body at the slow shutter-speed required for long-range flashlight photos. Can you make it out? This time Hope is carrying the ball. A Benton player has tackled the ball-carrier. The Benton man, his hands around the Bobcat's ankle, is just striking the ground with his chest, the rest of his body rainbowed in the air. But his tackle is good—and the Hope ball-carrier is falling. . . . The tackier is terribly blurred. Shutter-speed has to be held down to l/50th of a second to obtain maximum results from a synchronized flashlight. It takes l/200th of a second to "stop" the action of a falling body. In daylight the Speed Graphic press camera works up to 1/1000th of a second—but high school football games are played at night.

The Arkansas opponents of the Jackets are thoroughly familiar with the locals' Warner double wing back attack, and are being favored to stop the Jackets' running attack cold. The Hope team is coached by Foy H. Hammons. Hammons started his coaching work at Jonesboro, Ark., then changed to Fine Bluff, where his charges were credited with winning the national high school championship several years ago'in a contest with one of the North's leading grid squads. Coach Dobson of Byrd sent the Yellow Jackets through a final drill Wednesday night, scrimmaging regulars against reserve members.
