He returned Gerald Blonieyer to center, moved John Bruce Wilson in at right tackle, gave Joe Ferguson a stnilinB assignment at right end. elevated Stan HOIK! lo left halfback, vacated by Jim Smart, and turned Capt. Jimmy Stafford's guard Eliot over lo Billy Koonce. Each proved an ace move. Btomeyer was never belter as lie set the blistering pace on defense. The others caught Ihe spirit and turned In Ihe best collective performance of the year. Given the captaincy IteUI by lii.s pal and buddy, Stafford, Joe Neil nnlelifl more limn justified (be selection as he did ycomau service at guard. His decisions on penalties . were superb. Comes Through Tlie smallest member of the stiuad, Billy Delong, who scales a bare 125 IKiunds, came in for his share of ( the glory. Belong was called in to' punt three times during the back-lo- the-wall stands mid he came through beautifully. .He fumbled a low pass the first time, but picked it up and sneaked past his would- be tacklers for four yards, enough for a first down. Standing back deep in his end zone after his mates hud twice taken the ball away from the Pioneers, Billy got oil zooming eud- over-end punts thai traveled 45 and 40 yards and pulled the Chicks. out of impending danger He drew a b'g hand from the small but enthusiastic crowd. Thanks to some one-man power, one Calvin Smith, captain and left halfback, the visitors captured the statistics by a small margin. They racked up 11 first downs, ns compared to eight for the tribe, and had a net 140 yards by rushing to 114 for Blythevillu. Four passes out of 12 added 28 additional yards. Two were intercepled. The Chicks threw two, completed one for four yards after having the first try intercepted by Smith. Smith Sets Pare Smith was almost the whole show showed n net 84 yards for high.

Between the continuous stream if commands and Instructions to made one prediction. Now it you know him us I do its really a rare oc- ivlien there is no apparent need or benefit derived. Here Is what he snld In all sc- ,vhen the strong hearted Maroon and Wliite shlrted lads dug In and held. Delong again limited out beautifully. Seconds later Eugene Kemper recovered a fumble by Smith when Wilson smacked him hard. The half ended ns Blonieyer hauled down Smith on a pass Interception. Opening (he second half, Bates- ille again went into action as Cha- .iey scampered 37 yards on a beautiful cutback. Nicholson downed him on the Blytheville 23. A pass put them In the hole back on the 21, then Captain nalcllff nailed It down by nabbing Chancy for a loss on fourth down. Turn On Heal Then flic Chicks really turned on Ihe heat for Ihe first time. Starting from their own 21 they drove 79 yards without losing the ball. Nicholson got six at light guard. Hood scampered around end for 3','j and Pogne plowed for first down on the 3-V. Nicholson added 20 yards on u couple of reverses. Pogue picked up five on a plunge. Batesville was too rough on a line piny and was penalized 15 yards, pulling the ball on the Batesville 29. Poguc spun for eight. Nicholson got one and Pogue came back with three more and n first down on the n. Piigue plowed again for three. Hootl fumbled u pass from center but fought his way hack lo the line of scrimmage. Sylvester passed laterally lo Hood for four. Pogue picked another first down on the seven. Hood added one on n jaunt when his would-be receivers were covered. He then followed Pogue over the goal line for the touchdown. Dnn Cnldwcll came In for IHo placement, try. The ball hit the crossbar and bounded back. The quarter ended after the next kickoff. David Covers I'unl Sylvester's recovery of a blocked punt gave the Chicks, the ball on the Batesville 32 on Die third piny rlousness: "1 may not win a single ball game with the kfds, It really doesn't matter, as far as mere winning Is concerned. H Is secondary lo me In this ease. Hut I'll promise you one thing. They arc jjolug to know how lo block and tackle when 1 get through with (hem." That's all he said. Thai's all he wanted to say and left me high and dry lo go call altenlion lo one of his backs that he was not get- ling down exaclly right In Hie line, to another that he had a fool fniilt in the backfleld, and so on down the line. Well, "1'op" isn't, through with them. He has Just begun but al- rendy his prediction Is beginning to bear oul. I was at Osccoln Thur.s. day night find watched them (jo down, 7-0, before a superior group of boys, 't'he Seminole reserves not only had them outweighed considerably, but had years and experience on top of that. But did that matter? It certainly did not. They tore into (hem with a vengeance that must have warmed the hearts of "Pop" and Frank Wliilworth, who is helping out In his spare time. THREE FINE TRAITS Woefully lacking In gridiron generalship, due to lh e fact Ihm every member of the squad is playing his compcllllve football, the Papooses rnntlc mistakes, sen-or- al of 'cm to be exact. They didn't perform v/ilh the finesse of battle scarred veterans and no one expected them lo. But three things for Batesville. His offensive sheet but could gain only nine yards on four tries and lost It, The Chicks stopped the ensuing drive on the Batesville 40 with a tackling. When he was needed ir. fumble recovery then wisely punted that last desperate fourth quarter on third down. Hood laler checked surge he just wasn't there. He spent Hie visitors and sealed their doom v,i^c^ir !„ n,» n^i .,„,. w nij n 1)nss interception on the 40 and returned it 12.
