Blytheville cballfnye.s the winner of I the Little Hock-Pine Bluff to a playoff the Saturday following Thanksgiving. Why should tbe winner play Blytbe- If you l.ave foolball news lately, no doubt you | have read that se-veral well-known i gridiron instructors have expressed tbe i opinion that .such unorthodox meas-1 iii-os as tbe five-mnn line hnve gained ! tbe upper band this season to the <\x- j te-nt of tbe game becoming unbalanced I in favor of Ibe defenw. I Coach Fre-d Thom.wn of the Univor- [ sity of Arkansas lakes issue with these i mentors, pointing to the sad .story of! his own Ka/.orbacks, champions of 1U3G. who were unable lo slop oppo- i nents from oulscoring tbein in decisive j games. | The Southwest conference is a high ' scoring league and it is difficult for; coaches to fashion a defense to bold teams scoreless. : In a dispatch from Faycttevillo, | Coach Thomson snys: ! "My team him jusl finished its six- I game Southwest conference schedule, i "We wi-re defending champions. ; Arkansas scored 101) points for an nv- I erage of 1C.7 a game. Yet the best we ville? You know as well as anyone got WHS three wins, txvo defeats and a ">'" there will never be such a game, tie.

"Last season (be Porkers scored SSI points against six conference 1 opponents anel won five games and lost one to win the championship." ***** There have been weeping and wailing among .some old-timers be-cnusc Ihe Ro.-il from field isn't the popular weapon it used to be in football. Nevertheless more than three do/en college football names have been decided this fall by this kicking margin. Only last Saturday Baylor's hopes of an unbeaten season went for naught when Hugh Wolfe of Texas booted a 2G-ynrd field goal. The- same day Alabama was tied up with Tulanc until the final minutes of play when Sandy Smiford came through with n 23-yard field goal that kept Alabama among (he unbeaten learns. Centenary defeated Texas Christian and Washington humbled Leland Sanford in recent games by field goals.

Electrically Mixed Printed Directions With Each Purchase MONTS SEED STORE 110 Kasl Second They proved tlitit by defeating Hope and North Little Rock. But North Litlle Rock isn't any too strong this year and Hope at the time of the Bly- tbeville name had eight injured men which is over half of the entire squad of U-ttcrmn. The injured included Vasco Bright who i.s practically the entire Hope offense. Undersland. 1 am not giving that as an excuse for Hope's loss. Blylbeville would probably have won anyway, and I personally think (bey would give any state (cam a strong battle. Bui their opposition in (be past has given them a It-hip for n.s many us three or four games at a lime. Therefore, they are nearly always in top condition when they meet the stronger teams'. In the Southern part of the state I iK-lieve opposition is stronger. In playing teams like Lillle Rock. Fine Bluff. Camden, Hope. El Dorado, Nashville. Texarkana, Hot Springs, Smackovcr. DcQuecn, Fordyce and Benton you en n't let up. If you do you are beat. Very seldom any of these towns have a weak learn. Every game- is plenty lough. My advice lo Blythcville is to reach out for stronger teams. Then they will have a real claim for championship. 1 undorstnnd Blytheville's feeling and if Hope was in the same position 1 would sure yell loud. But Blythe- villc knows the fee-ling of the rest of the state. The-y will all concede the championship to Little ROCK or Pine Bluff. —A Bobcat Fan.

Texas Aggies Rated to Beat Owls—Arkansas to Whip 01 c Miss By (IARRY C1RAYSON NKA Service Sports Kditnr Nebraska's in-and-out Cornbuskcrs are due for a rather unpleasant afternoon in Pittsburgh, November 13. In 15 short minutes last Saturday at South Bend, Jock Sutherland's mighty Hit Panthers exploded the greatest dsiplay of sheer power any team has unleashed this season, and finally appear to have established themselves j a>- (be standout team in the nation. j In completely crushing Notre Dame |21-(j. Sutherland's proteges gave every 1 indication that Nebraska no longer tbonld prove much of a stumbling block in the Panthers' road to the Rose Bowl. The Cornbuskcrs, who were lied l!i- Ki by Kansas last Saturday, always play their fiercest foot hull against I-ilt, but this i.s one time that the odds loom too large to overcome. Not diily did the Panthers prove they have a legitimate 1 claim lo the soundest running atlack in the business but they demonstrated they can pass when nece.si-.ary—and pass with lines.se. Three out of seven aerials were completed by Pitt, with the feature toss going from Goldberg to Hoffman lor the Panthers' first score. I'll! Knvuri-tl—Going Away Nebraska can hope for little- success against that hard-charging Pill line and a pile-driving, ver.satili- backl'ield led by Marshall Goldberg and Harold Stcbbins. Il looks like a two-touchdown margin for Pitt, by a conserva- iivt estimate. In another choice game listed for Ibe east. Dartmouth takes on Cornell in a contest that should be closer than it looks. The presence of Wild Bill Hutcl.-insoii, however, in the Indians' back field is enough to give them a slight i.-dge over the Big Red. Fenn entertains a Big Ten foe in Michigan with my vote being cast in favor of the visiting Wolverines. Columbia must come out of the skids sonic lime and if Sid Luckman can net his passes working the Lions have a pretty fair chance of downing Syracuse. Yale should have litlle trouble with Princeton while Harvard which meets the Blue in a tradition-packed battle the following week, lakes on liltle Davidson in a breather. Alabama, scared rather badly by Tulanc last week, meets Georgia Tech m the leading battle on the Dixie Irani. The Crimson Tide, also enter- t.iining visions of a Host 1 Bowl jour- nt-l, will have Us bands full with the Rambling Wreck, but finally should scrape through. Duke is favored slightly over North Caroline; Auburn is in a swell spol to upset Louisiana Slate and Tennessee rales the edge over Vanderbilt. in other leading southern affairs. In the midwest, Minnesota should down Northwestern; Ohio State should make a comeback over Illinois; Michigan Slate has loo much power for Carnegie Tech; Purdue is given the nod over Wisconsin arid Kansas looms loo strong for Kansas State. Aggies Kiitc Over Owls In the .southwest, Texas A. & M. must be given the edge over Rice, even if the Owls did upset Arkansas u week ago; Arkansas in turn should defeat Mississippi and Baylor figures to dump Southern Methodist. Out on the- coast, California, leading candidate for the western nomination to the Rose Bowl, barely escaped with a tie with Washington, which may indicate that the Golden Bear "wonder team" bubble is just that—a bubble. However. Stub Allison's buys are si ill a hardy and dangerous crew and Miould come through over Oregon.

Hard luck losers in their past five games, and underdogs Thursday, the Los Angeles team broke a 7-7 deadlock in the final quarter on a 57-yard march climaxed by a 20-yard touchdown pass. Centenary scored first in the first period when Al Beasloy, halfback, ducked over tackle and race 48 yards for the goal. Birkolback converted. Loyola scored several minutes later on a Centenary fumble. Loyola's fullback, Jack Lyons, booted out on the Centenary four. The pass back from center on the next play went awry and Bela Andorkin, Lion lineman, fell on the ball over the line. Ratkovich converted.

The ArKnnsas Democrat said it had information the Blytheville Chicks were preparing to lay claim to the all- state title and that they were willing to "defend" their claim against all Comers, especially the winner of the Little Rock-Pine Bluff encounter. "We think we've got the best high school team in Arkansas and we're goiiig to prove it," said the Democrat's informant. "It looks like we're going to be .overlooked when the conference title* is awarded but we're claiming the state championship just the same." Such arguments are annual occurrences in Arkansas and tile Arkansas High School Athletic Conference was organized with 15 members this year in an effort to definitely determine the championship. Conference rules provide that in case two teams finish with the same percentage the title shall go to the one which bus played the most games against conference opponents. When the season ends on Thanksgiving, Blytheville will have met five conference foes, Liltle Rock seven and Pine Bluff eight. All three are undefeated and untied. Pine Bluff will be completing its conference schedule against Little Rock and a win there would give it a clean slate. In addition to the Bluff City game, Little Rock still is to face Fordyce and North Little- Rock. Blytheville's schedule still includes Jonesboro and Forrest City. The Chicks went outside the conference this week for a game with Scarcy. Ru&sellvillc, holding fourth place in conference standings, goes up against Hope this week in a game that appears a toss-up. Camden meets Fcrdyce and El Dorado tackles Hot Springs. Other conference teams go outside the league for opposition with Benton meeting Preseott, Fort Smith taking on Fuyetteville, Forrest City playing Stuttgart and North Little Rock invading Newport. Some 25 games outside the conference feature Smackover at Warren, Balesville at Atkins, Harrison at Rogers, Lake Village at McGehet- and Bcebe at DeWitt.

In the fourth quarter they drove $ the Ouachita three yard line whervqi a third down, Smith intercepted on tB goal line to save the situation.
