Neal hails from Clarendon, Ark., and is expected to see plenty of action in the backfield. Lawhon. 215-pound giant from Harrison, is considered one of the greatest .sophomore pros]>ects in recent years. He can play equally well at center, tackle or in the backfield. The Ra/orbacks will probably use him nl fullback. - Ihe Pine Bluff offense spluttered, Ray's good toe kicked tho ball out of No Man's Land. F.et-up for the first touchdown was a poor punt.

Rob bagged a kick and lugged the ball 25lo Ihe Fort Smith 35. T. Leftwich, who deserves as much credit as the Hutsons from a running standpoint, collaborated with Rob for a first down on the 21.

Jones wasn't Ihe whole show in the Fort Smith backfield. There were Gene Zuber. Jimmy Weatherforcl and Buddy Jabber, a 210-poundcr. Fort Smith's line, superior to Pine Bluff's, was sparked by Hendrix, who played a son- silional game at center. Fort Smith gave the Zebras tlieii luughe.st bat lie to date. ^»-»-^ -.

I1RST w£'VK SKEN If (here's a heller lineb-jcker in Arkansas High School football than Roy Taylor of Hope then we'd like for yoi 1 lo trol him out! We've been keeping tab on high •chool players the past 10 years—and defensive men like Roy come along about that often. He's the best we've ever had Die pleasure of seeing. We believe most Hope fans are •Ji^recd, The Haynesville. La , Golden Hurricane team is agreed. The story vlill goes around Hope about what Hiiynesville players (old El Dorado olayers after the Wilcat's 14 to G vic- lory al Huynesvillo. Briefly, it is this: "You fellows have a good team and won—hut you haven't seen nothing yet until you meet No. 77 of Hope." The El Dorado-Hope game is now 'listory and it is likely that Ihe Wild- cuts will remember.Roy for a long time. He not only turned in a ai'eat Iclensive game, but performed like in "iron-man" on the offense. After the Hope-El Dorado game. it was reported by Wildcat players: "We met No. 77—but where in the h— did No. 88 come from? Jimmy Daniels, quarterback, wears No. 88 jersey. He played his first game of the season against ElDorado. Daniel's blocking made Roy look gof.d especially on the offense. ***** But getting baclk to good linebackers. The task of backing a line use to be much more simpler than today. 'Ihe way offenses are geared in modern football, the task of the linebacker is much greater. To make it worst, coaches spend plenty of time devising new types of blocks and new methods for taking lhc- linebacker out ill the play. ***** Some of the duties of a linebacker lire: Firsl, he doesn't know where the lightning is going to strike next. Guessing won't do. He's got to have football brains—and Roy Taylor is pretty quick in the head, according to your correspondent's way of thinking •jnd observing him. Now, when the opposing team takes to the. air. The linebacker has tn watch for flat passes, angle passes, '•horl arid fast ones right over the line. Some fun, eh? Yeah . . . .lots of fun And then there are the delayed line ulays—which can make a first rate loo! out of anybody. But there's where Roy's perfect timing and football brains come in. Roy i.s quick on the start—but at the same time he can't go in there too fast and commit himself. He guards against being mouse-trapped. And then, too, he doesn't wait loo long—because if he did someone would cut him down from the side. The toughest situation for a linebacker is when the enemy has the ball in scoring territory. Thai's when they Political Foes Form 'Peace Front' DRAFTED Holding widely divergent political views, these three men united efforts to keep the United States at peace.

HARRISON IN HOLLYWOOD Shredded Turnips Replace Corn Flakes As Movie Snow; Use Oil Spray for Fog While Paul Harrison vacations, Bill Porter' writes uf cinema ciiri i-silies in the film capital. By BILL PORTER NEA Service Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD - There's probably nothing as ingenious as Ihe variety of ways makers of movies employ to produce illusions and sound effects with convincing results on the screen. And there's always some new method popping up. For years uncooked cor flakes have been'used as snow.

Tlie linebacker, if he's a good one like Roy Talyor, has lo be your fasl- ;sl th inker on defense. Taylor has the necessary physical assets, is strong and a deadly tickler. Opposing learns have been finding il very difficult to run anything by him or over him. That's why we say he's the best 'inebacker in Arkansas High school. football. ***** Besides his great defensive ability, he runs, passes and kicks. He smacks thnl line with (he best. His all-round play and grand competive spirit makes him an outstanding candidale for all-slale honors. We have spoke the above after keeping lab on high school players the past 10 years. Players like Taylor come along about that often! * * * * * Coach Foy Hammons has ask us to announce that gales at the fool- ball stadium will remain closed to fans each Monday and Tuesday afler- noons for the next four weeks. Coaches Hammons and Brasher in the meantime will be giving the Bobcats some special plays. Fans will be permitted to view practice sessions rwi Wednesday and Thursday of each week— but will be barred on Monday anrl Tuesday. -X * * * * Those Hutson twins of Pine Bluff second cousins of Speedy and Paul Hutson of Hope, were big factors crackle'like cornflakes and they reflect light better. A scene in "Remember tlie Night" calls for a cow to eat a straw hat off Barbara Stanwyck's head. Real straw with artificial glaze was not the lest bit attractive to the cow, so prop men wove prop hats of corn husks and it took six of them before they could gel tile scene. For most of fog scenes the prop men use small bellows called gapers with a piece of incense inside. These will gasp out an acceptable fog in a short time, but for "The Light That Failed" they wanted a real pea souper. They didn't use pea soup, but a fine mineral oil spray flavored with eucalyptus oil blow through tubes packed in ice. They were going to use peppermint flavor but someone suggested it might come out srtiped. Anyway the eucalyptus keeps the actors from irritated throats. In the movies, also, the real noise is usually the wrong noise. If they want to record thunder they can't use real thunder because of the outside interference^ and, of course, California seldom has thunder). Most popular substitutes for thunder are buckshot rattled/around in an inflated fooptball bladder and a pistol shot. Oddly enough, the pistol shot is most generally used. The effect is gained by firing a shot about a foot from the microphone then while playing it back the sound track is slowed and the shot sounds like a long low rumble. It disorts the sound like a phonograph running down. The sound of a bob sled or skis Tuesday night in Pine Bluff's 13 to 0 victory over Fort Smith. The defeat for the Grizzles just about eliminates them from championship title hopes. The Grizzles don't have enough conference games left on their schedule to get back in Ihe running, even if they go on to win every game.
