PAGE FOUR HOPE STAB, HOPE, ARKANSAS Star Dust By LEONARD ELLIS Sometimes a lot of sentiment and occasionally downright misstatements ,-reep into football write-ups. An account of the Hope-El Dorado game as of last Friday is contained in the El Dorado Daily News. We are ifting a few paragraphs from that story as recorded from the "El Dorado > iewpoirtt." Take a gander as this opening paragraph and draw your own conclusions. i"here was a lot of Hope fans who saw ; hat game. Here it is frcirrf the El Dorado "Viewpoint": i "Without detracting from the power of the Hope offense and defense it was the opinion of impartial observers that the Wildcats would have won on a dry field. The superior Hope weight would have been overcome by speed as their heavy tackles were easily outmaneuvered even in the mud. The Bobcat backfield, outside Taylor, failed to show anything on a ground game LOGS BOLTS and ROUND BLOCKS We are now in the market for \ Oak and Gum logs.

Hope, Arkansas Phone 245 • THE PAYOFF and their aerial shots connected strictly because the Wildcat defense was lax. As in the Haynesvllle game the Wildcats were continually losing precious ground due to penalties. On one occasion a long run was nullified and on two other occasions prospective first downs were lost because of penalties. "Outweighed 25 pounds per man in the line the Cats stopped the Bobcat running attack cold with the exception of one player—Taylor. "Some sloppy pass defense work, particularly by White led to the second and third Bobcat scores. Failure to punt on a third down when near midfield was a costly error for Blackwell was thrown for a 12-yard loss late in the second quarter and then the Hope aggregation swarmed through to again block a punt. "On the ground El Dorado piled up more yardage than did Hope but most of it was made in Wildcat territory. The Wildcat scoring threats came only through the air. The Wildcats were battered and tired at the end of the game and but for this weariness would probably have tied the score or won on the final minutes of play." We don't propose an argument from El Dorado, nor do we want to get hard-mouthed about the matter. But if those above paragraphs can be taken for truthful and accurate reporting— then it leaves your correspondent with a feeling that he has been laboring for about 10 years under a false impression of good journalism. ***** To end the matter, we'll quote part I Wright, who won four with the orig- By HARRY GRAYSON NBA Service Sports Edlto* NEW YORK—William Boyd McKechnie might not now be managing the Cincinnati Reds, National League champions, had he not been defeated for tax collector of Wilkinsburg, Pa., a long-term office. Bill McKechnie was out of the big show, starting the 1929 season, the Cardinal organization having rewarded him for winning the pennant by shipping him to Rochester. It was that spring that fellow citizens nominated him for a career of public service in hia old htfmo town. However, on July 23, after he had established the International bcaguc Redwings in first place, he was recalled to the command of the St. .Louis club When the season closed, the election broke the other way and the follow ing spring he began his eight-year term as head of the Boston Braves and Bees. Deacon McKechnie is the first man in the entire history of baseball to win flags as manager of three different major league outfits. He guided the Pirates to the gonfalon and world championship in 1925. Very few have won pennants in two major leagues or two major league cities. Flags Followed Them Wherever They Went The all-time list enrolls Harry OUR BOARDING HOUSE with MAJOR HOOPLE of a letter from Coach Allen Berry to Coach Foy Hammons: "Dear Foy: "Your boys played a hard ga'me and deserved to win.

Whether he will pla> in the Walnut Ridge game is doubtful. Roy Taylor, Hope's power-driving fullback, has a shoulder injury, but will take more than, this to keep hiVn out of Friday's battle. The balance of tho team is in gooc shape with the exception of "sand anc lime burns" sustained at El Dco-ado.

Pat Moran, whose Phillies came down in front in 1915 and his Reds in '19. and Joseph Vincent McCarthy, who was a National (League flag winner with the Cubs in '29 before switching to Yankee Stadium, complete the list. McKechnie also is the fir.st man in the history of the National League to 'manage four different clubs. McKechnie Couldn't Hit But Deacon Could Think McKechnie was a third baseman who could field and think. Although he ouldn't hit the broad side of a barn at 10 paces, he spent three years with Pittsburgh, starting in 1910 before mov- ! ing to the Braves, the New York Highlanders, Indianapolis Federals i and Reds prior to finishing his major! league playing record as he started it . . . three years with the Buccaneers. I Pittsburgh, now changing field marshals, wishes it had him back. i McKechnie saw service as an active combatant with three of the four National League clubs he afterward managed so well.
