Chicks To Renew Rivalry With Jonesbpro Here Friday Night; Papooses W/7/ Play Wednesday ideal football fans will got a double dose of their favorite sports'dish .this week. Coach ArviJ Green's improved Blylheville Chickasaws and "Pop" Mosley's young Papooses are scheduled to show their wares on Haley Field as the 19<M season moves farther into the second half. ^ The Chicks, sporting a two-game winning streak by virtue of a 6-0 decision over the JMcsville Pioneers and the 19-0 rout of Colliervillo (Tcnn.) last week, get a severe test of their brand new spurt against their old rivals from Craighead County, the Joncsboro Golden Hurricane Friday night. . > f Anxious to get brand into then . winning stride after dropping a close pair in succession—(o Osceola Scmlnole, Reserves, 7-0, nnd the .High School Independent Trojans, 14-13,- "pop" and his "Paiis" lake On the Keiser eleven Wednesday night Both games get- under . way promptly at 8 o'clock. "Trie'amazing turnover trick exhibited by the Chicks in their last two starts has caused quitc'n 1 luror locally, as well ns over the stale. Overnight they have transformed from an inconsistent, weak, slipshod" 'outfit incapable of doing much damage on nny gridiron to n imigh, lough, snarling gang of enthused, alert and Inspired boys who appe'ar to be doubly anxious to drive over touchdowns, in contrast to keep the other fellows from scoring In earlier showings. They have tackled well and hard, whereas before there was a lot of grabbing around Ihc neck or feebly "jerking at passing arms. Now (hey go Into, or at least attempt to bury that shoulder into their opponents' midiilfs with a vengeance. Their blocking, while not perfect by any means, hns improved so much tbcy don't even resemble lhe same team that lost to Caruthers : .ville and Parkin, 'non-conference members, nnd were buried by Little Rock and Pine Bluff by top-heavy scores—Hie largest in lhe series history. Hood Sparks Tribe One of the main reasons for this excitable rally hns been n towering joungster by the name of Stan Hood. Given a chance to cany the ifj-f ball after two years nt the 1m- portant but seldom exploited blacking back spot, Mils 153-pound surprise packages arc as richly deserving of the spoils as their ball carrying mates. They have made the Job possible. Deserves Big Bouquet David Sylvester, quarterback and Held general, continues to do a hangup Job of selecting his plays. David, who Is n double for Hood and could easily pass for his twin, Is the gambling type. He likes to score those touchdowns as Ills selection of plays attest, nnd that spirit Has caught fire over the eri- tlre team. After all, It is those precious six-pointers which they are working for, nnd more power to 'em Is the way local enthusiasts feel about it. The Junior Papooses are chomping at their bites over the. close licking administered by Osceola. They not only want n return engagement with the Scmlnole Reserves to break the one-one tie, but, would like another crack at Bdsel ITarbcr's Trojans who eked out, a close 14-13 win last week.

He is Connie liny, the Armorcl boy who performed for a season with the Blylheville Chicks nnd then had his career Interrupted by Die war. Enlisting In the Army, Connie received a medical discharge after almost, a year of service. Things broke wrong for Connie and thwarted a possible chance to carve out a fine career with the tribe. lie was Just getting the hang of the game and showed fine prospects as a tall carrier when tlic call to the colors was answered. When lie was dischargee! the current season was over.

"f tun going to work my way The year's absence from the grassy gridiron did not dun ins hopes and ambitious lo play college ball. It has been his dream from earlier , on ,,„„ days nnd he was determined to make i .XL) „ a gallant last try to get back Into ""*>""' harness. . I'Ol" GIVES ADVICE Connie went to Ills friend and i adviser, "Pop" Mosley, who has teen through. That Is lhe only way f shall' be able lo make It. That Is, with the help of whatever football' ability I have. The worst Coach McKeen can do Is shake; his head and say he can't use me. But I believe I can convince him." He left me with that assertion, took his scat on the opposite side of the ring lo finish out the wrestling match. I haven't seen him since. But, the other day I had a letter from him. It was written just n short time after the season got under way. He was riding the clouds, singing the praises of Mississippi State and Coach McKccn. HIDING THE CLOUDS . . . "Coach McKmi is us nice a man ns I ever expect to meet. I know those people up there have been pulling for Alamaba and Georgia, but I hope they turn to Mississippi Slate llils year. (That statement ought to make C. G Smith swell with pride.) 'When I walked into Coach Mc- Kccn's office he said, 'Son, you are too light, but you may try'out' I only 132 stripped now. I am the lightest man on the squad. "Mr. Friend, I believe as long as Coach McKccn Is here they will have a great team. We had about 05 boys out and already It lias been cut to 42. "1 will be glad when this war is over and my two brothers, Paul aud Wallace, may play down here They are both good athletes "I wish the Chicks all the luck in the world and shall IK pulling for MONDAY, OCTOBER 30, them." That young Hay did make the grade Is history. He did not crash Into the first team but has survived through the season so far. What Is more, he has broken Into three games as a substitute and apparently must be doing all right or would have been dropped long ago This Is not an unusual story in fact, It Is typically American. A boy -or a girl-can do Just about as much, go as far In this life as he Rom where I sit... ^ Joe Marsh As American as Huckleberry Finn About the best-read books in our (.own arc the works of Mark Twaln-who wrolo Tom Sawyer and Hud: Finn and all those olhcr lovable, undying stories.

You may remember what he said of Tolerance and Freedom -those principles so basic to our way or life. Mark Twain believed in thorn,of course. He fought for tlicm. Hut he cautioned: "Never let tolerance become Indifference, never let freedom become license." From where I sit, that's timely wisdom for a troubled world- whether it applies to international nolitics.or to a man's right to enjoy a friendly glass of beer occasionally.

Tigers Remain Securely Oh Top , speedster has astounded the coaeh and fans alike by his great run- ing Last neck he reached his offensive peak with a great perlorm- .ance. In 12 tries with the ball'Stan netted 170 jards, one a magnificent 49-yard touchdown gallop. He also heased a beautiful pass to ^rank Nicholson Hint traveled 53 yards in the air— and 38 from the line of scrimmage and at least 15 -yards back when thrown — and Frank n altred . unmolested for the remaining 20 that actually broke the Colherville ; team In half. Until this time the Maroons were trailing by a mere touchdown and "were staging a whale of a fight to overcome it. Line Is Impressive The line, unsung heroes all of em in these stirring victories when the ball carriers share the spotlight and get all the press notii»s, has pro\en a tremendous help in this streak Especially has the return of Gerald Blomeyer to center steadied the defense and improved the offensive "Corky" Sid as well. If not better, than expected at tackle but nothing to compare with hU work in the middle of the line. He and Harvey" (Cotton) Poguc have formed a near impregnnblc secondary defense just back of the line, the difference between holding the opposing backs and permitting them to break away.
