P. FRIEND "Pop" Mosley's Dlythevllle Junior High Papooses make their second local appearance of Ihe 1941 season lonight. They face the slrong Kei- ECI- High school team, perennially olio of the stronger teams In the Northeast Arkansas C-Man League. However, the visitors will increase ihelr regulars wllh a couple of tackles, a pair of guards and another back lo make It n full squad to compete against the Juniors. Hopes for vlclory were bolstered considerably Ihls week with the return of Billy Wayne McFarland, regular fullback who has been rld- ng the bench with a badly bruised shoulder. The, southpaw back could have broken into the game week before last at Osceola but 'Pop" preferred to keep him out until he was completely healed, He participated in Hie 14-13 loss to th6, Blythevllle High School Independent Trojans and looked fit. He'wlll be counted on to share Ihe brunt of the Papoose offense with Dickie Greenwcl), the brilliant halfback who lias done a magnificent Job of almost single Handedly carrying the load. McParland not only runs pretty well, but can pass and kick and shags a mean pass, Tills will add variety and power to the offense and serve as a double threat. Heretofore the foes concentrated their defense to stop Grconwel). Now they have a double task. Shuffles Starters Coach Mosley lias done a bit of shuffling with his original lineup to make room for McFarland and fill the gap left by Don Bcsharse. The right lacklc Is nursing a bruised side suffered In the Trojan battle and promptly was sent to the infirmary, ffhcn, loo, Billy Bob Elliott, starting right guard, turned up with a bruised hip and had to be replaced. Don 'Huey, the half pint speed- slcr who has been filling In al fullback for McFnrlam!, has been returned to his first Job at left tackle. John Hoover, a rough boy and defensive bulwark, is moved over a peg from left end to left tackle. Ilnrold (Sandy) Trnylor, r, hard working halfback, has taken over IJilly Hob's guard. Ucmalndcr of the starters will be Hie .same as In previous games. Captain Hilly Bnicoy will hold down on out on the wing. left guard. II, IS. Hoilgc goes back over the ball after missing a game due to scholastic .difficulties, pudgy jimmy Stlnson will be at right tackle right beside tall Harvey Eat- Jack Elliott, the hard hitting quarterback, will call Ihe signals and'•dlrebt'ik-amTplay.

Stan Hood. » Tins kid Hood has proven the needed offensive spark to act off the silent attack and may lend them right over the Hurricane If he performs in the magnificent manner as a'gainsl Colherville. His net yardage .was 110 in 12 tries, which isn't half bad. Nicholson Shows Promise He is expected lo get valuable This game deserves support and attendance of the Blythevllle fans for two reasons. Foolball enthusiasts re assured of a jamup performance, one thing. "Pop" has done a well Job with limited material and ladequale equipment to suit out lose youngsters, and the latter part f this statement is the second big enson why the customers .either, hould purchase n ticket or see the ame, or both. : • ; For n bunch of green kids this urrent Junior edition Is as prom- sing as any the local high school las boasted since the days of Monk Slosley and Sonny Lloyd.

KIDS HAVE IMPROVED I saw them the first week out and honestly, I said lo myself, "'Pop' if yon score a touchdown ail season you'll be doing well. If you win a game It'll be a miracle." ( It may have been n miracle, bu Ihese youngsters have snapped ou of It remarkably, and I do mean re markably. Week by week they ar developing .Into quite,a resemblanc of a football team, thank's to 'sorri knuckling down on the part of th boys and the enthusiastic coachin on the part of "Pop."
