Of that happy handful, there are only seven whose performances will command attention beyond the limited area of their own cheering sections. They arc. residing from Berkely. Calif., to Kas-ton, Pa., in approximate geographical order: California. Santa Clara. Colorado. Montana. Baylor, Alabama ami La- Fayettc. The form chart says lliat. of the spotless seven, all but Montana and LaFayelle should get by this week's DOLLARS WASTED ON UPKiEP CAN'T BUY NEW ROADS Inferior roads seem cheap and easy to build. They stretch a paving fund so that it covers a Jot of territory. But after a year or two, the trouble bo ^r ,! Maintenance costs go up and up. Soon all your paving niutic 1 ' is spent on upkeep . . . and no more new roads are bu.lt. That's why it's wise—and economical—to build concrete roads. Concrete lasts! It re. tjuires almost no upkeep. Each year, the paving fund builds more miles of concrete until the whole job is done—for keeps. Concrete's smooth, non-skicj surface is safe and satisfactory to drive on. It speeds up traffic ... reduces accidents ... saves gas, tires and repairs. Get concrete. Insist on it—for safety, comfort and economy. 1 tf com piece information write to PORTLAND CEMENT ASSOCIATION 1412 Syndicate Trust Bldg., St. Louis, Mo. installment of the gridiron obstacle race without losing glamor in the process.

Texas, meet on neutral j ground here Thursday night in prob- ) ably the week's host southwestern in- lereollugiate engagement for small schools. '1 he Teachers are strong favorites to ; retain the state college championship j they won last sca.son while Howard- Payne is rounding out the same sort of title race in the Texas college conference. Lending the Arkunsans will be the ?rnsntkmal Raymond "Rabbit" Burnett, little All-America candidate, who barks signals from his left halfback position. A real triple-threat man. ! Burnett has been the spark plug in i three consecutive seasons of uncle- lealed football at Teachers college i and Arkansas Tech. | Working behind a fast charging ! line. Burnett guides a backfiekl that ! includes Howard "Pee Wee" Montgomery and Jack Baldrklge. two of the iM-tesl little ball carriers in the game. i The forward wall of the Bears has i two outstanding tackles in Joe Conti and Woodrow Holman. Howard - Payne depends upon straight football and claims to have I Ihe best blocking team in Texas. James Minor and Wayinon Wilson are a pair of hipper-clipper backs who do most of the ball carrying. Alternating in the backfiold, they have gained a total jofll'M yards in five games this season, and piled up a total of 65 points. Vasco Bright Best High School Back in State, Saysjkxnit of Chick Team Wonder Boys Drill on Hope Plays—Don't Be Fooled Because Hope Lost to Camden, Is Warning Given to Blytheville Squad Rufus Tollett Quits Nashville Grid Team NASHVILLE. Ark.—The- Nashville Scrappers, victims of a 25 to 7 de- leat by the Texarkana Razorbacks last week, will play their last home game 1.1" the season here Friday night, meeting the powerful Subiaco eleven. K. Tollett's withdrawal from the team two days before the Texarkana iiame has given tht Nashville eleven a terrible setback as he was one of the outstanding backs on the squad and rate das the leading high school scorer in the state. Orrus Irvin has been groomed to fill Toliletl's position au'iinst the Subiaco team. Florida has alligator, bird. fish, ostrich, and snake farms on a commercial scale within its borders. INSURE NOW ROY ANDERSON ntul Company Fire, Tornado, Accident Insurance Rob Smith, iibovo. is called the , I in ,-t hif;li school player ever developed in West Virginia. A M-mor in Ihe barkfield of Beaver II mh of Blue-field, the 18-year-. old Smith's punts in seven Hiiinos this reason averaged 53 \ ;iids from the line of scvim- m:iSo. Rumbling Rob's average return of punts is 41 yards, and he has averaged nine yards at lushing. The youngster weighs 1UU pounds and starxis 5 feet 11. He'll probably go to a preparatory st-hool for a year before enrolling in college if in the meantime he isn't killed in the oi scouts. Precious stones nre smuggled into the United States to such an extent that it is estimated duty has not been paid on half the diamonds and other gems sold in the country. Ancient races on tiny Easter Island, in the South Pacific, carved hundreds of giant stone images, and stood them in groups, along the sloping shoreline. The enormous statues were rolled from the quarries and erected without the aid of lumber, since the island WHS entirely treeless. BLYTHEVILLE-'-Don 1 '. sell those Hope Bobcats fhorl," was the warning of Backfield Coach Mitchell Best and James Ace Fuckett. Junior mentor, as the Chicks started definite preparations for Messers. Vasco Bright & Co. The two members of the coaching «tuff were in the Camden stands Friday night when the Bobcats went down under a 28-6 deluge, but that' failed to alter opinions one bit concerning their strength and power. Don't be fooled and misled by the (oct that Hope.came out on the short end of such a big score. That doesn't mean a thing. Camden was keyed to the nth degree, were playing at home. gol the breaks and cashed in on them. Bright went out early in the second quarter with the score 7-6 against them, and Hope isn't the same when he if out. Should the two meet every week 1 believe Hope would easily win 4 of 5. I just can't realize it happened." said Best. "When Joe Craig said that Vasco Bright, their star quarterback, was the best prep school back he had seen 'ince Hershel Mosley he wasn't kidding. I never did see the ex-Chick in tction and from all reports he must have been a great ball carrier, but I have seen Bright and I do know he can certainly carry that mail. He will have to be stopped and stopped thoroughly before Blytheville can hope to win. If they let him get loose, say at least a couple of times, the visitors are liable to have a couple of touchdowns. He does everything and well, and is so deceptive and elusive it is hard to tell just what he is going to do. Fans who attend the game Friday night can expect to see a real ball game and a real star. He is an All- Slate back if I ever saw one." Craig has said all along, that is. after he saw Bright shine against Jonesboro. that Hope must not be taken lightly as long as Bright is in the game. He is the spark on the offense and the team functions much better when he is in safety position. Jonesboro scored all their touchdowns when he was out of the game He tal- liedas many himself. With Dan Warrington. star right end. definitely out and Fullback Le-, Roy "Bronco" Brown ailing with a sore throat, all is not rosy in the Chick wigwam. Head Coach Joe Dildy worked Hildred Bunch and Leon Stafford at Warrington's terminal and used Big Carl Hughes at full. Bunch and Stafford were especially effective in snagging passes during the comparatively light workout, while Hughes was running with an unusual amount of speed and drive. It isn't at all un- i iikely that Carl will have to open. Brown's condition was unchanged Wednesday afternoon and. even if hie should be able to get up, he will likely be weak from the fever. The Chicks will get some experience against Hope plays this afternoon. Beit spent almost an hour drilling a scrub team with enemy formations. He is expected to enact the role of Bright during the drills, that will be limited to dummy scrimmage. Have your winter Suit dry cleaned in our i modern plant—pressed by experts — delivered promptly.
