H6f>8 STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Thursday. October 28,. 1931 THE SPO] STAR DUST ; By LEONARD ELLIS • = liniiHUiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii'iiniiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiTi HCKINd THE WINNERS We won't say we were good in hav- * Ijttg only two of our last 21 selections ," ktek back on us— just lucky, And now we come down to that Uppe-Camden game. Here's hoping we don't go "screwy" or allow the law ' of averages to overtake us. We'll say— Hope 19, Camden 14. >• This prediction is made early Thursday morning with the knowledge that at this time "Fearless Freeman" Stone, Hope's 205-pound all-state tackle, is not likely to see much action, if any at all. If Stone doesn't play, he will be missed. There's no doubt about it. £ut Hope is a high scoring team. Records show that. We believe the Bobcats are a smarter football team Snd in an acid test is the better offensive team. It will take at least three touchdowns to win and we believe the Bobcats are capable of making that many points. i Good luck, BobcatS) and fight "em. ***** Other predictions of Hope football • fans follow: , . LEO ROBINS-With every thing be^ ing even and no bad breaks for either team. Hope will win by one. two or three touchdowns. JACK FRIEBOLT-The Panthers are too powerful for Hope. The score will be Camden 19. Hope 6. If Stone's leg is not well the score will be • worse than that. WALLACE COOK— I can't see the score either way. I'm a poor guesser. If its raining, Camden will win. They're good mudders. But I hope the field is dry and Hope win. TERRELL CORNELIUS— I'm afraid to predict it With Stone in the game, the team that gets the breaks will win. yhthout Stone, I would say Camden by one or two touchdowns. I saw the Camden-Little Rock game, and the Ppnthers are plenty tough. DALE WILSON— Camden 18, Hope 0. Too much Camden. ***** MARY SUE ANDERSON— If Stone doesn't play I'm afraid we're sunk. Camden. has a mighty good team. PICK ,W ATKINS— Hope 13, Camden 1. That'? provided the Bobcats stop Camden's off-tackle plays. It's going to be a- battle and Hope will have to play smart football." This boy White looks mi$?iy S°°d °n Camden's left side took Nashville a year ago. The Panthers are taking the Bobcats too light. PAUL JONES—I've seen both teams play. Hope is capable of winning If there is not a let down anywhere in the game. Hope 14, Camden 6. CALVIN CASS1DY-A tough game for both teams. I believe the Bobcats will be on top at the finish. TOM WARDLOW—It's going to take a hard fight. I believe the Bobcats will be the winners if there Is not a let down. The team that lets down is beaten. SCEVA GIBSON-Just beat 'em. That's all I want. One touchdown will satisfy me. ***** Our prediction on other games to be played this week-end. Fine Bluff at Hot Springs. Pine Bluff will win its sixth conference game. Fine Bluff 28, Hot Springs 6. Memphis Central at Little Rock. We know very little about Memphis Central, so we'll Cake Little Rock 14 Memphis 0. Elytheville at Greenwood, Miss. Greenwood is potent but we hope Blytheville wins, 7 to 0. Another victory might make the Wonder Boys a little too confident for next week's engagement with Hope. North Little Rock vs. Benton. The Wildcats 20. Benton 0. Forrest City vs. Jonesboro. Jonesboro 14, Forrest City 0. Clsrksville vs. Fort Smith. Fort Smith 6, Clarksville 0. RuKellville vs. El Dorado. Russellville 20. El Dorado 7. Fordyce vs. Warren. The Redbugs, I want to see ' des P' J e the fact we lost on them two weeks ago, Fordyce 7, Warren 0 Texas A. & M. at Arkansas. The Razorbacks, 14, Aggfes 7. Basketball Drill ins at Bodcaw HEIRSTON-Ifs going to be close, W rather see Hope win from Camdenjtlian. any team on. the schedule, My prediction is Hope 18, Camden 14. .If the Bobcats beat Camden, they will -then take Blytheville. MATT- REAVES— Hope 19, Camden 5, The Bobcats are going to stop 'em. They're that good a team. :•• .***** DOC .BRANNAN— I don't want to lose my reputation. I won't predict it. The game looks like a toss up. If Hope wins the Bobcats will just have to outsmart them. Camden has power, there's no doubt about it. B. R. HAMM— I'll take the Bobcats. Hope 18, Camden 13. It's going to be a mighty hard-fought game. DR. F. D. HENRY-I understand Stone is on the ailing list. Just anybody .can't take Stone's place. It's anybody's football game now. IKY PRITCHETT— Camden 19, Hope T. I hope I lose that prediction. Camden is powerful on off^tackle plays. If Btone isn't there to stop 'em it might be too bad. , ***** CHARLES WALKER— The Bobcats are going to take Camden like they Three Teams Report to Coach May for First Practice By CLIFTON BURNS BODCAW, Ark.-Three Bodcaw High School basketball teams reported-for practice Tuesday -afternoon in response to fhe call of Coach May. In the senior boys group there were about fifteen stalwart lads who looked as 'if they would have to be told when they were beaten. Included in this group was the regular squad from last season, with the exception of Allen, who graduated last spring. " In the junior boy's ranks there were about twenty of the future varsity men, several of last year's players were also present here. Last year these two teams played side by side throughout the season, and both teams won the county* championship. Coach May said Tuesday that he expected both teams to take the district title next spring. About twelve girls will be out for basketball this year and several people who are supposed to know say they are going to make basketball history this season. Eodcaw's gymnasium is about completed, after many months of working, hoping and waiting, It was made possible by the PWA. At different times the community has been called upon to furnish extra funds. Although it seemed impossible each Hope for Bobcat Victory Is Bolstered, Freeman Stone and Joe Eason Will Pk Condition of Both j SLICK SPARTAN Players Improved Game With Camden to Be i Crucial Battle for the I Bobcat Team ! Coach Foy Hammons announced at rioon Thursday that the condition of Freeman Stone, 205-pound all-state tackle, and Fullback Joe Euson, was improved and thatootlv players would be in the lienup in the crucial battle against Camden Friday night. "The swelling in Stone's shin has gone down. We'll pad the leg good and I think he will be all right," Hammons said. "Eason is still bothered with his ankle but is improved and by game time should be in better condition," the Bobcat coach said. 'Woodrow Parsons has been running in the fullback position and Still has been filling the guard post. Johnny Wilson has been drilled in the tackle position and Will see action there if Stone is forced out of the game. Otherwise the team is in good shape. "I won't predict the score—but's its going to be a hard game. Stone. Bright and Parsons will be wearing new numerals on their sweaters against Camden. Their old jerseys are about worn out," the coach concluded. The Star, in a telephone interview with Stone, said: "J'm Ok. I'm going to play. They've kept hot towells and hot packs on me iince Monday night. The doctor drained the infected blood out of my shin and now I feel fine. I hope we win." School authorities announced that six coaches and a baggage car had been chartered for the special train to Camden which will leave the Missouri Pacific depot promptly at 5 o'clock Friday afternoon. Tickets' for the game can be purchased at Hope Confectionery and Jacks Newsstand at 75 cents each for adults. Students can obtain their tickets at the high school for 25 cents. At Camden they will be 75 cents. Authorities urged fans to purchase their railroad tickets now in order to avoid delaying the train. They can be purchased at Roy Anderson's Insurance office and at the high school. Round trip fare is $1.32. Advices from Camden said that both Hope and Camden students and both bands will occupy the south side of the west wing. Hope fans will sit on the north side of the field in the stadium.

The Smackover and Pine Bluff 8'imes drew record turnouts this season but interest in the Panther-Bobcat cltish seems to Insure a crowd just as large if not larger than the two previous high gales. The BobciiLs are undefeated in con- fercnce piny although they have mil played the calibre of teams the Pnn- thers have met Cmmlcm has lost to Little Hock and Pine Bluff, standout, teams in Die state, while Ho pa has lost only lu Byrd High of Shrevcporl, La. The scort was 25 to 14. Byrd high nnd Little Rock tied 7-7. Hope's record to date follows: Hope 48, Horatio 0. Mope 20. Benton 0. Hope 14, Byrd High 25. Hope 20, Smockover 0. Hope 37, De Queen 0. Hope 38. Jonesboro 20. Hope 25. Nashville 0. Camden has defeated Smackovcr 19 to 0, Nashville 52 to 6, Outichita Parish cj Monroe. La. 26 to 0; and Texarkana 31 to 7. The Panthers lost to Little Rock 1C to 0 and Pine Bluff 14 to 7. Last ycnr Hope defeated Camden 6 to 0 ul Hope with a last minute touchdown pass, nftur the Panthers had clearly outplayed the Bobcats for three periods. A fourth quarter touchdown sprint of Kiz/ia was nullified by a penalty in that game. Camden was without its captain and signal caller. Tanner, all state man. in that game. This year the Panthers have Blair, veteran back, on the injured list and Singleton, veteran tackle, dropped from the squad. Quimby. other tackle with Singleton last year, is now playing with the Bobcats. The Panthers will present a new line with exception of Captain Gillespie at end and Goodgame at guard, and Greening at center, that faced Hope last year. McKcnnon, veteran back, has missed practice this week, because of a severe cold. If he starts then practically the same back- iield that faced the Hope team last year will trot on the field Friday night. ' Hope hasn't defeated a Panther team on the home field here .since 1925. Tlio Panthers are determined lo preserve that record. In 1925 Wallace Cook ran through the mud 80 yards to clofout the Panthers. That was Sam Coleman's first year here. No Hope Leum has turned the trick .since that time. The Panthers have been working hard on offensive formations this week. Merchants: Order HANES From BEAL-BURROW Dry Goods Co.

The intended victim of the Bluff Cilinns is Hot Springs' somewhat battered Trojans who had u hard time finding a one touchdown win over a weak Fordyce team last week, Pine Bluff is rated to win Friday night's engagement by u wide margin. Next the Zebras take on North Little Rock preliminary to crucial conference conflicts with Little Rock and Blytheville. Also drawing considerable attention this week ii the Hope-Cnmdcn tussle. Hope is one of four undefeated conference elevens while Comtlcn is yet to break into the win column. The Camden machine 'has played the tojv-notchers while Hope exercised in the second division. This week's game will establish a definite gauge of the Bobcats' strength. The odds arc even. Two other undefeated conference teams go outside the league for opposition this week with Little Rock taking on Memphis Central in its homecoming ' tussle and Blytheville tucking Greenwood, Miss., which last year ended a two-yenr winning streak for the Arkansans. The dopesheel on other game. 1 ) involving conference toums: North Little Rock rates a heavy favorite over Benton. Forrest City looks a trifle weaker than Jonesboro. Clarksville gives Fort Smith its first chance to win. Russellville goes into a toss-up match with El Dorado. Fordyce should take non-conference Warren into camp.
