P. FRIEND Jonesboro has n winning streak of their own to preserve to counteract , that; 'Iribal Incentive. Aflcr the defcals bj Clarksdale, Miss., 45-0, and Little Rock, they have blown over Mtolvern, Marked Tree, Newport and Foircst City In succession. From a purely statistical slnnd- polnt the visiting Hurrlcancers ha\e comparathe scores, records, have compnrUve scoies, lecords, weight . and experience In their fivor. For example, In the batile uijh Litlle Rock the only learn •which both have met Ibis-year, the Hurricane was'. checked 39-0. A week later Ihe powerful Tiger band bl.asle'd the Chicks,- 48-0. The Jonesboro forward wall, headed by Bill Claik, 195-ppuiy center who was sjiifled from tackle and leplaceS by'^00 pound Schujler Smith, averages 173 pounds to a scant 153 for .the. Maroon and While line. The Jonesboro backs average 154 apiece, one-more than the locals, t - Ba?st Veteran Team ' W'Ui exception of a place or. two In'jhe line and a.back, Ihe Golden Gang will present a solid lineup of-veteraus who hsue se\eral se»- '.sons'of combat under their belts. DOPE BUCKET DOWN MEMORY LANE Recalling several unforgettable Ohickasav.' mountain peaks In the colorful Jonesboro-Blythevllle fool- ball series: ...... Greatest Individual performance —Herschcl! (Hcrky) Mosley In the dramatic 1935 spectncle. Jonesboi;o broke awny lo a 9-0 victory In the first .few minutes and It looked likje a roul, and was—until Mosley went to work. He did-everything'at football, except cat It, that night. The play that broke the Hurricane back .was totally unrehearsed. HeVk (lipped a short-pass' to "Red" 80X7 ter. then ' wheeled around .end-, to lake a lateral from the tall.-red headed end- and scamper for.> touchdown. Hcrschell was the veritable will, o' the wisp tha.t nlghf, reversing his field for long runs nnd touchdowns, passing like ft.wiz- ard aiid In general mnklng hlrri- self an nwful pain,In the neck : to Jonesboro . players nnd fans alike' They .tell me Blylhcvillc won 'Ihe money—and the game. ', Greatest kicking performance-^ Mnyfleld (Sonny) Lloyd in tKe amazing 22-0 .rout of Jonesboro; in 1941. Supposedly walking on crut-' cjics.and,unable to run, much less kick. Mayfield got off two zooming quicks "that traveled 18 and 70 ynr4s and coinplelely changed (be'.complex of things. Joncslioro never recovered after'that first kick, Sonny was never better'tis he passed when supposed to run nnd ran , wheji Jonesboro was dead sure he would pass. J. T. Victory contributed materially with a pass Interception, for a touchdown. B-H-K-R-R-R-R ; ! Coldest game of the series—Back jn 1937. 1 It was so cold that' night nil Eskimo would' have felt, quite- at home. It 'wns reliably reported .tlie thermometer froze, preventing n reading lo determine how low it really did dip. Tlie gridiron itself resembled a huge concrete slab and players' said it was just ns soft. Charcoal bucket dealers must have gotten over the hump that night. And. to top it all, I developed a chill and shook Ihe entire time. But Ihe 40-0 score helped warm me considerably.
