C. ERW1N Plume I5S or 1SII-W. The other day you rend in this column n reproduction of an article by A! Hose, Camden editor, who is advocating an addition of about five teams to Ihe Arkansas Athletic Conference and then splitting the conference into half—a north half and a south half— with 10 teams in the south and 111 in the north half. The winner in the south half would play the winner in Ihe north half for the championship of Ihe slate. That's Mr. Hose's idea of giving a team a clear title to the Arkansas championship. * * * + * We agreed with Mr. Hose thai such teams like Nashville, DeQueen, Smackover and say (wo others Ibat are potential winners, should be in the conference. That's fine. But we can't sec that a division into a north half and a south half is any better than the present system. For this statement we give a reason. * * * * * Suppose two of the II) teams in the s'llilh half wound up with perfect records, having won five conference games apiece. Then suppose Iwo learns in the north half wound up the season with each winning five conference games. Then what would you have'.' You would have two teams in the south elniminf! the cahrnpion.ship— and two teams in the north claiming the championship. You would have four champions that way—nnd the conference would be in a bigger muddle Ihan ever. ***** It won't work that way, Al. About the only solution we can offer if Ihe present season winds up with Hope j claiming the championship and Little i Rock laying claim to it—that is if Little Hock goes through undefeated nnd Hope undefeated—would be lo amend (he rules nnd have a post-season game ***** Probably another solution would lx> if additional teams are added, would be to force each team in the conference to play seven or eight conference learns instead of five. This would tend to bring Ihe stronger teams together and in doing this would reduce a team's standing in the won nnd lost column. Won-confernce teams that have bowled over members of the "Big 15" this season are: Smackover whipped El Dorado; Malvern defeated Fordyce; Bauxite won over Benton; Brinkley look Forrest City's measure: Catholic High. Little Hock knocked over Jonesboro and we believe Van Buren bung up a victory over a conference foe. however. Buren. we're not sure about Van It is- only Mums-hip and fair play loams like Nashville. * * * * * a malter of good sports- to admit such DcQucen and Smackover and say two others thai arc potential winners, into the conference. 'Hie three mentioned deserve lo be in the conference. They're plenty lough. But—a split conference would do no good. The real solution—and the only solution—would be hall all games after Thanksgiving except tho.'-e tied up in the conference, if any, and allow only post-season games to play for tbe championship. ***** This talk of championship is probably out of our line right now, anyway. If the Bobcats defeal Camden. and wo believe they will. Hope still has Blythc- ville and Hussellville lo contend with before getting over the hump. And that's a big hump. too. Hey. Blvthe- ville. Hussellville! ***** Did you know that the Bobcals are leading all conference teams in scoring this season? Considering all games, the Bobcats have piled up a total of 202 points this season. No other team in the conference has made that many points. ***** When Ihe Bobcats and Panthers clash Friday night it will be like "old time>" for Grady Quimby—only Quimby will lx> dressed up in a Bobcat uniform instead of wearing a Panther suit. They say that the Panthers have no "love" for Quimby. We believe thai Quimby can lake care of himself in any high school game. Quimby should be wise cm Panther plays—so watch him diagnose them Friday night. ***** Camden's football record for the season; Camden ID. Smackover 0. Camden 52. Nashville G. Camden 2(1. Monroe.
