BLYTHEVILLE'(ARK.) COURIER NEWS Chicks Hold Over Jonesboro In 20 Years J ' Wh*n the Blytjieulle Ohlckasaws >iin<i Johesboro Hurricane collide in ' t their annual football /end tomorrow night &\ Haicy Field It will mark the 22nd time they hnvc locked horns since 1924. However, representatives of the two outstanding Northeast Arkansas schools actually have been at their respective throats longer thim that. The . first official football game was plajed back In 1913 when the local Institution Jnunched out on the grldiroii sport, but accurate records.have been kept only since 1924 In these last 20 years of piny the. Chicks hold a slim edge. They have rolled back Jonesboro 10 times and two have ended in deadlocks. Jonesboro has finished on the lout- end of the horn nine tunes. < Series In Cycles Oddly, enough, the series has gone in cycles with one team being superior, then the other, with the balance hand swinging back anrt forth. Blylheville won that game back; in 1924, 13-7, only to have Jonesboro lake seven out of the next''nine, with two ties, both by identical scores, Q-0. lint with .the ad\ent of Coach Carney Lnsllo aiid the local "New Deal" in 1934, the pendulum swept back to the Uly• tfievllle side and remained there until' 1940 wlien the Hurricane under Coach Clarence Gels tripped the tribe in that ncver-lo-bc forgotten 13-6 classic that prevented a perfect season for the Maroon , and While forces under nig Joe Dlldy, «ho succeeded Laslle with .the 1937 season and carried on the local supremacy. • The Chicks came back the following season on the Individual brilliance of Mayfield (Sonny) Uoyd and J.:T. Victory,22-0.Coach Arvil Green came on the scene as big chief In 1942 and his charges thumped the visitors 25-8, only to ' have that advantage wiped out in '43 with a pair of Jonesboro wins, 26-0,' and 13-G, Coach Pete Craig's first year at the helm of the Golden Gang. Thriller la Expected Another thrilling chapter is expected to be added with the struggle tomorrow night. :ihe two teams .appear to be fairly even in size, though the visitors will have an advantage In experience. Comparative dope gives a slight lean to the Crai[jnend county iads. Jonesboro dropped a 39-0 verdict to „ Little Rock in their own back yard, :while the Chicks were on the bruising end of a 48-0 defeat by Messers. ' John Hoffman and Co., a couple of weeks later. like the tribe, Jonesboro has had 1 Its troubles this year. JThey opened 1 the campaign by falling before the Clarks'dale, Miss., eleven 45-0, thci 1 were beaten by Little Rock. But 1 they got back in stride with n 130 defeat of Marked Tree, other blistering pace as last week. Breaks l.idlc Finter Bilj Clark, Jonesboro center, suffered a broken little finger In drills Monday that may keep him but of he battle. Herald Kaffka, great llt- Ic guard, Is also said to be Itmp- Ing pretty badly from a sprained ankle re'ccivcd in the game at Forrest City. But these youngsters have a way of shaking off these ailments and it is quite lively all will be in there battling from the very start. The ticket campaign to'fill the stands for this all-important game, No. 1 on the calendars of both tennis, Is said to be progressing "very acceptably," according to C. G. Redman, President of the Chickasaw Athletic Club which Is in charge of the advance sales. President Redman expects to have the largest crowd of the season, on hand. fcrcncc between the two teams, Douglas not only spearheaded the , iiv _• ..THURSDAY, NOVKMBRR 2, 19-M cd for n 13-0 Papoose advantage, f Several clrivc.s checked by pen- Kctser roared tack to tic the allies, a large part of their 105- Kclscr attack, but was a thorn lii'tcore, then add another just before lolal fur the evening as against the side of the Papooses on dc- the half ended.

Crews, quarterback, all speedsters and members of the crack Keixer six-man team, also were outstanding, Dickie Greemvcll and Billy Wpync McParland let! the Papoose 'ball carriers with 82 and 43 net yards, respectively, and were the main cogs In tho offense that rolled up tilne first downs to seven for Kelser. Dickie scored Ihe first Dly- theville touchdown on a neat 23- yard, sprint nrotmd end, while McFarland was on the receiving of n 27-yard pass from Jack Elliott, who turned in a fine game.

Despite the loss of two regulars the Chicks did an about, face against Batesville to win, 6-0, and came through beautifully to smother Collierville (Tenn), 190, last week. Injuries in rival camps have thrown, question marks into the game picture.-Conch Green is vitally concerned over the nimble legs of his chief race, Stan Hood.
