Hoie speaking; "Today we went to address a communication to (lie powers thai be in tho now high school conference. This will lx? our firs! say on the conference but not our last. They probably w,il! not listen but we an.- going to say our piece uud keep on. 'We've always !«•- lievod in that policy. In the first place there are three or four tennis in tin- .stale that should be in the conference. In the second place the conference should be divided into a north and south half and the winners then play for the state championship. If this is done, then increase the membership to 20 teams with ten in each half "Teams like Smnckovcr. Texarkana. Nashville, and Di Queen should be in any conference in this state. Year in tmd year uut tho.se four teams are just as good us the average teams in the state and better than some. We will discuss each team. There is Smackover. It battles Camden iind Hope hurd each year and hus defeated El Dorado two years hand running. What more do you wnnt'.' TexarkariH Is one of the toughen! foes the Panthers meet tmd the Porkers are a classy outfit. They can hold their own with any team. The Camden fnms will vouch for that. Coach Perry of Hot Springs knows how tough the Porkers are and he quit plnying them. Nushvillv is as tough as they make them and teams that mee! the Scrappers euch year will tell you the *nine. Camden and Hope cun testify to the toughness of the Scrappers. DeQueen while not overly stout this year is consistently good and last year turned in tho Number One upset with a victory ovar Hope. (Editor's Note: And Nashville turned in q No. 1 upset with a victory over Camden last year!. "There nre other teams we could mention that rank with other good clubs. Get ten from the north half and ten from the south half. Put Little Rock in the north half and make the Tigers and Blytheville play each year. Unless our guess is wrong Blytheville nnd Little Rock will go I through undefeated and we will have ' the same situation that has existed for! yearn, two or more teams claiming the | title and nothing done about it. These j two don't meet this year. We have '• plenty tough ones in this south half. | Pine Bluff, Hope. Camden. Hot Springs, i Fordyce, Texarkana, Nashville. De- Queen, Smnckover. et al, will give any team plenty to add new gray hairs for j conches year after year. > "Camden, for instance this year has i played only two conference foes and lost both of them, but remember the '• loses were the top ranking clubs.

Nashville, and i Texarkana. yet gets no credit for win- ( ning while teams knock over Bcnton,; Russellville, Jbncsboro and a few oth- | ers and rate as top flightcrs in the con- ' fcrence. Either these teams will have ' to be added to the conference or we'll , advocate Camden dropping some of its better teams and pluy some of the weak sisters inside the "charmed circle" in order to save its face. Personally ' we'd rather see the Panthers play the same tough schedule year in and year out, hut what's the use if you arc not going to get any credit in the standings for wins, ami if you got defeated, then your prestige is materially reduced. "For the past ten years we've advocated a two-way conference with north winner playing the south half winner. We'll put the South Arkansas teams against the best the north half has to offer and day, nnd place, any time. "Around about Turkey Day look for another state championship muddle. Two learns and maybe some smaller school will be laying claims to the slate title." Southern Teams in Good Showing Win All of Their Intersection Contests Last Week-End Camden Confident of Victory Over Hope Friday Panthers to Seek Revenge in Game Record Crowd Expected for Southwest Arkansas Classic CAMDEN, Ark.—Returning to their hume field after a successful jaunt to the border city last week-end, tho Camden Panthers are working daily at Abbott Fiold for their next game here. The Panthers take on the Hope Bobcats al 8 Friday night. A record crowd in expected if the weather is fair. Hope will send a big delegation to Cnmden to try to rival the big crowd that went to the Camden-Hope game last year. Caniden fans chartered n special train for this game. Tho Panthers haven't forgotten the 1936 game when with Capt. Tanner, vttenin center and signal culler, called away from the squad just as the team was leaving for the Fame, the locals went out on the Hope field and battled the Bobcats for three periods and in Ihe fourth had it touchdown run nullified and then Ihe Bobcats completed a long pass and won fi to 0. ll was a brilliant but a heart breaker for the locals. This your they wnnt to avenge that defeat and the team is confident it can. Too. Hope is undefeated in conference play and Ihe Panthers are anxious to be the first to turn the trick in the state. A fwnor Panther. Grady Quimby, is now with the Hope team. He is plaing tackle. For the first lime his former teammates will be arrayed against him. The Panthers face a lough week of work and Ihcy will have several new formations to work on. j More of the stadium has been completed nnd will he ready for use Friday night. Hope fans will use the south side while local fans will occupy the stadium Hope fans have chartered a special train. The team nnd band will ride Ihe train ;is well as many students and townspeople. The train will leave Hope between •S-.HO and 5 p. in. and reach here at G::tO p. in. The Missouri Pacific station is juM a block from the Caniden football field. On the return trip the train will leave about 10:43 p. in. Winning Plays of 1937 Pass Play Clicks Perfectly A* Carnegie Tech Rudely Dumps Irish by major teams like Army.

Bearden has a good season record and is expected to bring many of their local boasters to Prescott wilh them. The Wolves will be in much better condition than they, hove been at any time this season. They are this week practicing hard to overcome some of the weaknesses shown in the last few games and are determined to show local fans that they are worthy of the fine support given them in the Gurdon gfjme. It is hoped that this fine support will continue and the boys will try to show their appreciation by fighting hard to maintain Prescott's reputation of the past on the gridiron. Remember the change to Thursday night. Defense Studied in Porker Drill Coach Thomsen Apparently Is Satisfied With His Offense FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.—(/Pi—Apparently satisfied wilh an offensive that has averaged two touchdowns a game this- season. Coach Fred Thomsen put his University of Arkansas Razorbacks gregation against Nebraska andl Indiana. Practically everyone was ready to give up on them when they snapped out of it and put on an almost flawless exhibition against Michigan. I am not at all sure that they'll hit that peak again. We must wait and see what the remaining games bring out. Ateam cannot be fairly appraised in one start. It should be judged on what it does- throughout an entire schedule. Chicks' Game Will Count «TBig 15" Blytheville Team to Invade Greenwood, Miss., FH-, day Night BULLETIN LITTLE HOCK.-H/Pi-President f. H. Alford of the Arkansas High School Athletic Conference announced late Wednesday that the BlytheViUe* Greengood. Miss., game this week Will not be considered a conference en* counter. Conference (earns must pfay five games in the league each season. The conference tagged the Blyth- ville-Greenwood game a conference tilt because the Chicks had only fotlr conference games on the card at that time. Later Blytheville scheduled Hope for November 5. giving Blytheville five games in the conference.

Little Russell Mosley. the Chicks' triple threat man, is suffering from a wrench* ed back but is scheduled to start. A win would give the Chicks a total of three victories without a defeat In the Arkansas Conference. When the conference was formed Blytheville was granted permission to count the game as a conference contest, because five conference opponents were required for membership in the association and Blytheville at that time had scheduled only four. The Chicks have defeated North Little Rock and Hot Springs in conference competition. stopped. Thomsen said that better de.- fensive play would be needed to stop the Aggies' hard-running Dick Todd and company. The coach also outlined several new ground plays which he said should give the Razorbacks a better balanced offensive. The Arkansas aerial attack has been virtually the only weapon o£ the team this season. Quarterback Jack Robbins will be in the lineup against the Aggies, seeding action for the first time in two weeks. care of Ihe others. NEW YORK. - i,1'i - Plowing ahead with all the decisiveness of one of their old-style democrnlic landslides, sc.uthern football teams swept alt before them in inlerseciional competition this pnsl week end and thus jacked up their percentage enormously. Helping Dixie's representatives no little was the fact thai (he east, leader laM year and this, turned in a miserable showing against teams from other sectors. The boys along the Atlantic seaboard remain in first place—Ihe west const record .still is perfect, but takes in only three games-—yet their margin iu; longer is so decisive. Winning but three of eleven major contests lust Saturday, the easlerners saw their season record fall off to 2U won and thirteen losl. The South, represented by favored Alabama, Duke nnd Centenary, against George Washington. Colgate nnd Arizona, pulled up just short of Ihe .500 mark al 14 victories and 15 defeats.

Everybody knows that I'UtshurKh will be exceedingly lough when the Cornhuskers make their one astern appearance, November l.'i. Afjain there are a number of uui- .staiidiiif.; athletes in ihe Nebni>ka lineup. Charley Brock ranks wilh the nmrc accomplished centers.

He did u first class job of picking plays against Minnesota. He's a bcUur-tlum-avcr- age blucker.
