Ark.- (Special)— School and athletic officials moved (his week in makliiK preparntinn.s for linndlinfi one of the liirwsl football ci'owds in the history of the local school, next Thursday niubl when the Hope Hub- nils come here for a name with the DeQueon Leopnnls.

But -and Mr. 1'rintcr make this is bin BUT To consider "dope" against the Dc- Queen Ix-opards would be n sad mistake. H don't mean a thing! What happened the nighl of Friday, November 13, I93G, when the Leopards came to Hope and pulled that uproarious upset is not forgotten. Fired with great zeal nnd determination, the Leopards were the best team that night—and they proved it. The Bobcats arc approaching this year's game with practically the same set-up as the one la.st season. Hope smacked Horatio down by a 48 to 0 score. DeQueon got by Horaio. The "dope" is heavily in favor of the Bobcats. Take the approach of last year's con- cst. DeQueen had been beaten by *IasihviHe. 25 to 0. Hope had won over Nashville, 31 to G. cured to referee the game. Exlrn bleachers are to be erected at the high school athletic fit-Id, which was used for the first time lost season. We don't believe the Bobcats are hitikiiiK about going to DeQueen to run up a bitf .score—just for "revenue." We dotbink they are going there determined to win by a bard fight. The Leopards are "pointing" for the Hope game—and it will take a battle to subdue them. Naturally we are for the Bobcats. We think they will win—but regardless of the outcome—may the best team come through with n victory. —Photo by Harris Studio Above is the 1937 Leopard football machine which will meet Hope til DC Queen high school athletic field Thursday night.

There should be no cause for arguments. We don't know whether school authorities here are contemplating a special train at this lime. But let us suggest one as a means of escaping dust on the gravel highways between Hope and DeQueen— and as a safer means of transportation. We believe that a special train can be chartered—say the Missouri Pacific to Texarkana and north on the K.C.S to DeQueen—or the Frisco to Ashdown and then the K.C.S. to DeQueen. Which would be the best route can be determined by school authorities— but let's have a special train. It appears—if Little Rock is stop-pod—it will be up to either Camden or Pine Bluff.

McKNIGirT FAYKTTEVILLE, Ark.- (/P) -T w o pass crazy football teams, Texas Christian University and Arkansas, pitched through four frantic periods to a 7-7 draw that left a sellout throng exhausted here Saturday. 'Sixty-one passes of every description sailed through the air one was good for 75 yards and Arkansas' touchdown. The aerial magic played n big part in the Texas Christian score but it was deadly Davey O'Brien, the 157- pound Christian sniper, who finally plunged over. Every period was an invitation to heart disease bill the second packed the biggest punch—and all the scoring plays. Long Jack Bobbins, Arkansas' handsome triple thrcatcr, stood back on bis own 23 and fired a bolt which Jim Benton, end, snatched on the 45. Three TCU ladders shelled him, but on the way down he spied big Ray Hamilton, his fellow end, laleraled ami Hamilton tore out 75 yards for a touchdown. Owens' place kick was perfect. It took the Christiau just long enough to get the ball on the kick off to knot the score, Johnny Hall, 180-pound halfback who looms as the greatest running back the Southwest Conference has seen since the days of Joel Hunt, whipped the kickoff back to his 43 and then look turns with O'Brien in slicing Accessories That Tune Your Fall Wardrobe, Shirts deserve a first place in every man's wardrobe.
