Tiro Changes Likely ^Coach Mosley likely will lie forced to shift-his starting lineup for (his second start against Hie Scmlnolcs. He must find replacements for Gerald Heagan, bis tackle, and Fullback Billy Wayne McFarland. Upon tile advice of the family physician young Reagan has given up the sport, while Billy Wayne Is still out with a severe shoulder injury. There is every indication that McFarland, a left handed passer and fine * kicker, will not -be nvailnble for at lensl two weeks. .While botli Kenyan nnd McRir- land showed considerable promise, their places mny be adequately fill. James Sllnson. chubby 150- ppundcr, and Don Hucy, half pint speedster. Both were In the thick of the Jonesboro battle and did all right. However, Stinson was at BDard.

Hodge Is the snapper- back. -.Operating in the backficld with Huey quite probably will be Dickie Greemvell, elongated left halfback whose running has featured the first two starts; Mose Simon, stur- ny right halfback who has pigskin mannerisms similar to the srent Rddie Saliba; and Jack Eiliott, crack-Mocking back and signal caller.

This event, sponsored by the DJIri- le! Harder post of the American Legion, Is expected to attract even more entrants this year than ixt miy time before, thanks to (i longer hunting season nnd role-use ol more ammunition. Dr. 11, V.

Coach Homer Uourns', Seminoles showed tremendous offensive power last week {luring the 35-6 defeat of the Enrlc Cardinals, their fourth win of the year and second triumph atMliisi Northeast. Arkansns Conference competition. Led by the (wo backfleld aces, Denver Wilson and Robert Clay Driver, the tribe was not lircsscd to subdue the ried Birds ana likely ; - ould have plied up a larger score iiatl they elected to bear down all the way as (hey started. Only three iliiys were necessary to rack up the first touchdown that climaxed a 15-ynrd Jamil. Line Slum's Strength • The tribal big chief was highly pleased over the fine manner in which his forward wall stopped iravticnlly every Enrlu threat and line thrust. With the two crack :u»rds, Gene Butler and Stan Kramer, and Center Freddie Bnn- ilster leading the way, they smothered the hard running Earlc backs, Chester Morton nnd Charles Ber-, :inr<!, before they got started. Only two first downs were gained by rushing against the hard charging 1 ,Sen(lnolc forwards. Oil the basts of season records, the Blue Devils arc not expected to offer ' any serious threat to the Semliiole championship march. Making their first start in the conference they have not been too Impressive but may make a strong stand In their own'back yard. Point To TUers With the strong Parkin Tigers coming up next, week, Coach Bourns Is'expected to take the wraps off his youngsters and give them the green light to eliminate any possible upset. He has warned them against over - confidence, pointing out trial many games have been lost before actually played because of . underestimating the strength and fighting power of the opposing team. •fhe entire squad-escaped without any Injuries and should be at their •WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 19-M physical :\mi mental peak.
