Although they went into the gatae with the big Batosvllle outfit in,poor physical condition and minus two of their regulars; Cnptnln Jimmy Stafford and Jim Smart, tfte^chlckasaws came out none the less worse off There were the usual, expected bruises and humps, to be sure, but the victory served us a shot in the aim to the depressed joungslers who had taken it on the chin foui times in a row. ., .. To Keen Uncuii True to spoils custom Coach Gjfeen plans to keep last week's starling lineup intact, If nt all possible Billy Kooncc, the lough little 145-pound guard who turned ta'a whale of a game despite a buln leg, is still suffering and may not be able to get back In this week- Bills was hobbling around favoring lii e biuiswi leg all during the game but It didn't keep him ouj of the thick of battle, lie stny- ed 4n and kept battling. Conch Green kept ghmg him rest bv substituting liis .pal-competitor, Charles Roy Lutes, and the big redhead did a pretty good Job, too. Stan Hoocj is the toast of the fafis for his fine work nt left halfback Inserted at the running back slot for the first time Stun exceeded the fondest expectations. He ran well with the ball, showing a deceptive hip motion in op- en.field niirj spun ucbusly in close line,play for additional yards.

J. L, Johnson, Joe Ferguson, John Bruce Wilson and Eugene Kcmper were more than adequate in that forward wall that stood firm In the clutch. Frank Nicholson and David Sylvester rounded out a smooth working' backfield. Several times it appeared as It Frank was going to break away for long runs. He is expected to improve as he gets experience. Conch Green is sold on him and even predicted before the season that.he would be the sensation of the campaign before It is over. . .. •. •.!:•••. Calls Good Game Sylvester's' all-round field generalship played no little part In thai victory drive. He mixed his plays well and kept the defense guessing as to which he would call next-.

The program was a dandy, a clever combination of science, skill, •oughhouse tactics, and plenty of comedy to keep the overflow crowd n excellent spirits. There.was never a dull moment as the four giants pulled every trick in the book. Numerous Funny Moments Thc show was replelc with amusing Incidents but two especially drew lown the house. Thc first came nldway of the first fall. Malonc, In fine form, was knocking Allen Hat on his shoulder blades ns fast as he could regain his feet. Each time he >rose Allen looked pleadingly at Stocky who proceeded to show him with proper gestures how lo block those blows. Finally afler hitting Ihe deck five limes Roy gave It up ns a. bad job and Slocky slipped through the ropes to show him how to prevent such occurcnccs. Thrice he blocked Malonc's right hand socks and as he nodded lo Allen as to how he did It MiUoiie let lly with n haymaker that set him down on his haunches in double fjiilclc time "Stocky" couldn't crawl out of thc ring fast enough. it was -this same Kneilsen who provided the other outstanding extra funny moment. He had just taken a terrific lacing from both Malone a Wisbar via thc monkey nips. In fact, he had been wound up am downed but before Hefcrec Meroney could, declare the fall, Allci leaned over Ihc ropes and knockec 'Wlsbnr loose. As Hoy slipped Into the ring to assist his partner lie wa: Ijodlly picked up by Kneilsen am slammed violently ID Ihe ring and had It not been for nefcree Me roncy, likely would have received i repent dose; as the fans went wild with laughter.' Action Is Uoufih ' Billed, ns n likely slam-bam affair with such a combination of outstanding performers, thc show was Just thai. It was fast mid'rough with very little overlooked.' Tho'dM fall' wont 22 minutes before Malont and Wisbar won It. They took It' bj concentrating their attack on Kneil sen.
