The Be.iton team has one of the greatest high .school punters in Arkansas prep circles in Halfback Moore, who also is the ace hall carrier for that team. There';; a possibility of a three- way lie for the Arkansas High School Conference football championship. Here are the "if.s" the stand in the way. It Hope should defeat Pine Bluff November 30 at Pine Bluff both teams would wind up with a percentage of .833. A tic game or a win for Pine Bluff would give the Zebras undisputed possession of the. title. A tie game figures a half game won, half game lost. If Fort Smith wins both of its remaining two conference games—North Little Rock this week and Hot Springs the next—then, Fort Smith would also finish with a percentage of ,833. Seek Benton Game The Bobcats Monday morning were without a game this week, having an open date on the schedule. The High School athletic committee was to meet during the morning in" 7 an effort to schedule a game with Benton High School, a conference foe, Benton is also without a game this week. If negotiations arc successful—find provided that Bobcats win over Benton—then the battle between Hope and Pine Bluff would be a championship affair.

Answers on 1'aiie Two Spore Reappointed Methodist Pastor Announcements Must Be Signed Within the last several weeks The Star has received a number of announcements which, because their senders failed to sign name and address, can not be published. Signatures are not printed, but the authority back of the announcement must be known to the management before it can be used. This rule is enforced absolutely in announcements concerning weddings, engagements, births and deaths. If any subscriber lias sent such an announcement to us and failed to get it published it is because the announcement was not signed—and unsigned communications arc treated alike, even though the omission is an oversight.
