^.FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27, 19-14 BLYTUEVILLE (AKK-X COURIER Chicks Will MeetUnbeaieh CoWerville. tOntGSt lOniynt ! How BIytheville-Collierville Compare At Holey Field Former Chick Player Bringing Light But Speedy Aggregation Football with a distinct Chicka\ saw flavor will bo on parade tonight at 8 o'clock nt Haley Field when Ihe Blylhevllle nigh School Chlckasaws and Collierville, Tcnn., Volunteers clash in the first meeting between Ihe two schools. Coached by Raymond (Brick) Blckerstnfl, former member of the Chicks, the Tennesseans likely will show much of Ihc same stuff that made the tribe famous the South over and spread its name to every nook and corner of the Wonder State. Have Good Record That Coach Bickcrstaff has Instilled many of the very line qualities and tricks learned here under Joe Dlldy Is indicated by their record for the season. They have won three games and tied-one In four starts and rate one ot Ihe leading elevens In West Tennessee prep circles. The game. No. G for Ihe Chicks, is expected to develop into an individual bailie between rival backfields and forward walls that have little difference by comparison. Weight charts reveal the two elevens to be about on par in avoirdupois. The visitors have a slight advantage in the line, while the Chicks enjoy about the same boost in the ball carrying department. Coach Bickerstaff is pinning chief hopes for victory on the trim shoulders of two members of his brtck- field, a hard hitting youngster by the name of Gurkin, and a 135- pound youth bearing the name ol Leatherwood who has eel-like qualities while carrying the mail.

In their ule for tonight. The great sleight of linnd artists was good at tricks. I'm not so hot as the following predictions easily will convince any possible skeptic, of which I am sure there are none: PINE BLUFF AT EL DORADO— As long as I'm going to lie brave about the whole thing I see no added barm In selecting the toughest knot of the week. It should be closer than a dot at the end ol a sentence, thoiieh comparative scores give the Wildcats an edge. In the first game of the conference schedule El Dorado walloped Fort Smith 26-0. Several weeks later Pine Bluit was able to only tie the Grizzlies, 0-6. In recent weeks the felines have been in an outers, as evidenced by Hie 7-B c Arkansas Tigers should give Central anj Memphis several good red- sons why they arc headed for the Big 15 championship. Central doesn't appear to l>e as strong as In previous years, having been beaten twice already this year. This should be tlie third by at least two touchdowns which would be the smallest score rolled up by the Dcngnls this season. COLLIERVILLE (T E N N) AT BLVPHEVILLE--'Sense me. Mama just called.

Backs Lead Attack Growing c Pains But n Gurkin and Leathcrwood have been the sparkplugs all season, setting the winning pace with fine In-' dividual work. They are shifty, clever and ever dangerous, especially out in the broken Held. They are triple threat stars with equal efficiency. Coach Arvil Green has made it plain to his Chicks that it is their main business to keep this pair hemmed in so as not to be bothered HOT SPRINGS AT LITTLE ROCK—Equally perplexing to figure out via advanced dope' is the annual battle between these two schools. Hot Springs, as usual, marie the early season splash and built up hopes for its followers, only to topple the first time they i faced a strong team, which happened to be El Dorado. Only last week Little Rock swamped them, 40-0.

This triumph has proved as effective as a shot in the arm. Their spirits and hopes have been revived/and geared to a high pitch. They are confident that better things are ahead and intend to keep the ball rolling with a win over the visiting Collierville outfit, despite the fact that they appear very strong and powerful.. Use Same Starters Coach Green has announced he will .open with the same lineup which started and finished last week. J. L.-Johnson and Joe Ferguson will be on tlie terminals. Eugene Kcmper -mid' John Bruce Wilson lake over the tackles. Captain Joe Neil Hatclifr nnd Billy Koonce hold sway at the guards, with Gerald Blo- meycr ovcr Ihe ball. In the backficld David Sylvester will be at the blocking back; Stan Hood and Frank Nicholson, left right halfback, respeclively. and Harvey (Cotton) Pogue, fullback. They should level their high scoring weapons against the Mustangs who have just about taken it on tiie chin fui' pshgosh to Podunk high. About 33-0 is a fair guess, I think, I don't know.- RUSSELLVILLE AT FORT SMITH — Coach Wallace Bailey's Crimson Cyclone sprang a neat surprise by holding North Little Rock to a 13-7 score last week and mfiy pull an upset here. But I doubt it, seriously. There is an indication that the Wildcats were playing under wraps, pointjng to the Hot Springs game this week. If that is tnie Fort Smith will win by a pair of touchdowns. C/UIDEN AT HOPE — Foxy Foy Mammons' Bobcats have surprised even llieir most rabid fans several times so fur this year. Tlie biggest c.ime in the 6-6 tie with El Dorado, Bill Adams, Lieut.
