It simply was » case of too much weight and experience. Exploding a baffling razzle da/ale offense the Whirlwinds crashed over touchdowns in tlie first three quarters but were stopped cold und outplayed in the final period when the Papooses scored their lone touchdown. Thoiiks to some neat Mocking by Mose Simon and Jack Elliott, •Dickie Greemvell broke : out Into the open and swept 40 yards for a „ w>ie shortly after the fourth quarter, got, under way. It was a perfectly executed piny and young Oieenwell waltzed easily over tho goal line 'as Pap Mockers went to • work, Inspired by their touchdown the locals forced Jonesboro to sur- icnder the ball alter tlie next kickoff and were threatening again as time ran .out. Coach Mosley praised the finq play of his entire team and said he was satisfied over Ihc results, ihough naturally disappointed. Tho youngsters, .lacking In combat experience battled all the way and made the Whirlwinds extend themselves to win. •A return engagement is scheduled-here next mcntli.

Though (here has been no widespread expression on this idea, prominent baseball owners would Insist, under such a move, thai the appointee be outside the pale of politics. J J.

There Is every Indication, Green reports, that he will be used at all, further lidding to his line troubles. Stafford, who. has don e a BAAF Golfers n Tourney At Dyersburg BAAF's golf team won over the Dyersburg, Tcnn., AAP team last Sunday al the Blythevllle Country Club by a score of 27',i to 10!4. This was the second meeting of Ihc season for the two teams with each now holding a decision. The final and deciding match of the series will be played 22 Oct. at a place to be announced later. Individual seoips posted In the 18-hole matches were as follows: knocked' down, shoulder suffered In ibe opener with Caruthersvllle, had the member bruised again in the Bengal battle but, continued despite the severe pain. The same holds true with Pogue. Like Stafford the. blond, back hurt the shoulder making a hard tackle against Carulhersville. and has been unable to take off long enough to permit it lo lie.'il. He has freen wear- Ing a protector but even that hasn't been sufficient to withstand Uie shock during n hard game such as the first, three played so far. Koonce, given a starting assignment, has been one of the few bright features of the Chick play so far tills' campaign. He, too, Is not expected to open against tho Zebras. Cowh Alters Uaeup These injuries have forced Coach Orcon lo alter his lineup. He plans to open with John Bruce Wilson and Stan Hood, ordinarily a blocking back, at the ends; Gerald Blo- ineycr and Eugene Kemper, who reported late and Is slowly round- into shape, at the Stafford and Joe Nell tackles; David Jerome Gray, center, and Sylvester, Smart, Frank Nicholson and Pogue, backs. In order to bolster the defense, Chief Green will play checkers with some of his charges. He may move Pogue Into left tackle, Bla- meycr to left guard. Stafford moves back Into the secondary to help Smart back the line. That the Zebras are certain lo be exceedingly tough, perhaps as formidable as the Tigers, is Indicated by the season record. They have won two and tied one. They whipped McGehcc, 45-0, and blasted Fordyce, 44-0 before hooking up the 6-6 tie with Fort Smith last week. Little Rock rolled up a 49-0 score on Fordyce in the first start of the campaign. Heading Ihe -offense is Shorty the half-pint all-state back who is playing his fourth and final season will) the Zebras, and Jake Baldwin, a leading conference scorer in 1943, backed by a strong forward wall.
