Ark.— (/P) —pine Bluff's potent Zebras tucked the first Arkansas high school athletic confer- ;encc championship in their record ! book Monday and : turned toward out- of-stete opposition while other circuit members began a last gasp'struggle for ranking positions. Coach Allen Dunaway's charges nosed out Little Rook 7-6 Saturday to complete iv string- of eight conference games without a defeat. Under association rules, it will be awarded the title for no 1 other team can compare with that record. Blytheville, undefeated at present and With two more conference games to play, likely will finish the season with a perfect record. But the conference, in such a case; awards the championship to the team that won the most games. Pine Bluff will be just three games up on the Chicks when the final roll is called. The Zebras meet Gladewater, Tex as; this week while Blytheville lack les the unpredictable Jonesboro Hur ricanes. Little Rock, now in third place meet Fordycc, a tailend club tha hadn't won a conference victory. I should prove a breeze for the Tigers North Little Rock plays Clarksyill with the odds favoring Coach Bbl Cowan's Wildcats. Forrest City, tiec with North Little Rock, goes out' o the circuit to take on Mnrianna am Camden, also in the upper division rests in preparation for its annua Thanksgiving Day classic against E Dorado. Hope plays Goodland, Okla at Hope. Russellville takes on Catholic High from Little Rock in a game that shoulc be a toss-up. El Dorado has an open date but Hot Springs goes to For Smith for a second division engage ment that probably will see the Tro jans push over another of their rare victories. The Grizzlies have not won a conference game and apparently are not scheduled to do so. Benton, tail- end club, remains idle. Not to Play Chicks PINE BLUFF, Ark.— (fP)— Pine Blufi high school, its football championship claim safeguarded by a state conference rule and eight victories against no defeats, will not play Blytheville tliis season. ' ' • • • Blytheville, also undefeated in the conference, has won three circuit games and has two more to play. Anticipating victories over Forrest City and Jonesboro, the Chicks last week proposed that Pine Bluff arrange to meet them. "We tried last year to schedule a game with Blytheville for Thanksgiving," Coach Allen Dunaway of the Zebras said. "We waited and wrote .several times to get an answer to our offer. While we were keeping the date open for Blytheville they scheduled a game with Forrest City for that date. When we learned of this, we scheduled Oklahoma City high school for Thanksgiving. Now we have a full schedule and can't play Blytheville."

Further clouded by Saturday's results, which saw the Aggies tie the leading Rice Owls and Southern Methodist soar to its righ peak of the season to-upset Baylor, the league was in such shape that only a man with a slide rule and a lot of.time could figure it. Out of all the Saturday doings came only one definite fact. None of the mathematical chances accorded Baylor, Texas Christian, Southern Methodist and Arkansas, will be worth two pennies unless someone devises a way to stop the Rice Owls' wild sophomore, Ernie Lain. Next Saturday at Fort Worth Rice faces a Texas Christian team that finally found itself against Texas. Meanwhile Coach Malty Southern Methodists, exjJefimentfhjr with backfield combinations a)j finally came up with a great tfi of sophorftor«s that plastered mighty Baylor, 13-7. , The Methodists travel to the Pacific coast for a game with OriiverSlfr 6?
