It was Jonesboro all the way. The Golden Gang, paced by Leon (Moon) Mullins, biilleriug fullback, speedy Bill Johnson, and J. P. Atkins, a hitherto unsung hero, scored single touchdowns In the first,, third and fourth quarters and drove over twice in the second for a convincing verdict, Ihe ihird straight Hurricane triumph over (he Maroon and White forces and victors' No. 5 for (he year. Mullins Scores Thrice Mullins scored the firs I Ihrec touchdowns, climaxing power drives that completely engulfed the tribe. Johnson dashed over for the fourth, while Alkins completed a 39-yard combination toe dance and waltz for Ihe' flnnle. Mulltns mks- ed the first three placement attempts but connected on the last. A plunge by "Moon" failed after the Ihird score. Despite a desperate, gallanl fight all the way, the tribe never hnd a chance. Their running attack stop• ped dead by the large, hard charging Jonesboro forward, forward passing checked by wide awake, alert backs, they never seriously threatened to score. In fact, there were only a few times when they penetrated Into enemy territory. For the most pnrt they : were strictly on the defensive, vainly nllcmpl- ing to fight off surging Jonesboro assaults. The. fact that they were in there pitching all the way helped to soothe the pangs of the crushing-defeat. Vital statistics reveal the wide superiority of the .winners. Tlicj ' rolled up 212 yards on the grounc by rushing and added 11 yards more via passes for 13 first downs Atkins was the leading offensive star with 90 yards. Johnson had net 63 and Mullins wound up will 59. Chicks Slopped Cold Thanks lo the final quarter surg against the Jonesboro reserves, th dfticks finished wilh a net I yards ,by rushing.

But defend ing Jonesboro backs intcrceptc seven Blythcville heaves good to 121 additional yards on returns an which set up at least two loucl downs. . Stan Hood was the main object of the Hurricane defenders. He vyas a marked man from the beginning and seldom got started good before being nailed. So completely bottled was he that his offensive chnrl showed, a net loss of 8 yards for the night. The longest Blythevillc gain by rushing was.six yards, reeled off by Hood in the third period. Jonesboro's superior power began over for Ihe flrsl touchdown on 10 plays and four first downs. Mullins battered over the last yard for Ihe touchdown. His attempted placement was blocked. Jonesboro 6, Blythcville 0, Uayder Blocks Punt Blythevillc stiffened and battled Ihc visitors lo a standstill for the remainder of the first quarter, but It wasn't long after Ihe second period gol under way that the Hurricane began lo blow again. They got a running stall when nlchnrd nayder blocked Billy Delong's punt which was recovered by Ihe half pint Chick back. But II was fourth down and Jonesboro took over on the Blythcville 12. Five plays later this guy Mullins was over Die Maroon final stripe for touchdown No. 2. His place kick was high enough but failed to go between (he goal posts. Jonesboro 12, Blythcville 0.

But when we get ln«> dllTiciilty, or brush close to iloath Ihcrc Is a tendency lo think in Icrms of Gixl and His Divine help. Many of Ihc boys in the service, and some of us ul home arc getting closer lo Him than we have bee licrluips In years. There have beei countless stories of boys prayint \vlio never prayed before. Many o thL'sc prayers have Ijcen answercc In such manners us to show UK presence and eliminate all doub s lo His power. .1 In a recent, leltcr from Norman Monk) Mosley, stationed somewhere in the Pacific, presumably oh Bougainville, there was a mention of some church-going activity which luticatcd lhat he, loo, Is gelling •enewed interest in spiritual things, along with other activities. The chance to think away from .he din of the crowd has helped. 10 doubt. Wliilc nol a consistent church ;oer before the war, "Monk" did al- Icnd Sunday School ralhcr rcgu- lurly. The quid, studious lype, he did appear to be keenly Interested In Ihc teaching service of the church 1 ,'' having accepted Christ when in high school. But, like nmny of us, he did not devote any too much lime to the Lord's work, othci than occasional Attendance. MAY liK DIFFKKKNT But I have an idea thai Ihingb will be different when, and If, Ihej do gel back. There should be fellows who will lurn lo Ihe church who never before thought about il 11 lias a definite place. Monk's thought provoking letter follows: APO 116, A. T. Co. 182nd Inf., % Postmaster, San Francisco, Calif. Dear J. P.: I received your letter a few days o and sure was glad lo hear from you. Hope you are not working too :iard. I am gelling along just flue. The Chicks would have a good jail club if llicy had not lost some of Ihe fellows like Besharsc, Yank Welshous and nay Gill could have stayed, wouldn't they? I still hope they can have one even without them. Tell them to work real hard. They won't have the team like the ones we used to have, will they? Has anyone heard from Lieut. Wise (Toar)? How Is he gelling along? , (Your Dad had a lellcr from him not so very long ago, Monk, and he was doing swell. He is in New Guinea. His address is: Co. P, 532 Hegl APO 56S, % Postmaster, San Francisco, Calif.) MEETS BLYTHBVILLE BOY . You remember Herman Cross Po- scy, don't you? I found out he was on this Island and went over to see him, as usual.

I have really found out a lot of hings since I came over here. When was at-home I never went to hurch very oflen. Over here I earned different.

Bui "Moon" failed to add Ihe extra polnl with ,a crack at the line over the same spot where he previously found a hole. The whistle blew-just, a few plays To Resume The Roosevelt Depression and Chaos OR To Restore Representative Government and Confidence For Which Will Democrats Vote on November 7?

Hurricane Blows Again .Midway of the third quarter af- ler an exchange of-punts, the Hurricane blew up another scoring sloini. John Cook gathered In Delong's punt on his own 35 and finally was knocked out of bounds on Ihc Blythcville 39. Atkins reversed to the 1 29. Mullins cracked guard for four.

When that didn't work, the New Deal tried trust-busting, pins tax policies that kept new investors from starting new businesses."* In 1937 Prime Minister Winston Churchill said, "The Washington Administration has waged so ruthless a war on private enterprise that the United States is actually at the present moment leading the world back into the slough of depression." Just previous to that time the New Deal had a bear by the tail in trying__to spend itself to recovery. It boasted a national income in excess of 71 billon ^created artificially by made work, leaf-raking and doles paid out of the taxpayers' pocket). II tried reducing expenditures, only to sec its hollow imitation of prosperity collapse. By April, 1938, there were 12 million unemployed. Churchill said it! "The New Dealers never discovered any method of economic or spiritual compensation. If Hillcr hadn't marched into Austria in 1938 and into Poland in '39, llooscvcll's troubles in keeping the New Deal afloat would almost certainly have retired him to Hyde Park in 1940."* HKRE'S WHAT -I YKAKS MOHK OK ROOSEVELT WILL DO TO YOU The Roosevelt pre-war record cited above, should be adequate proof . . .' 7 years of it . . . that neither Roosevelt nor his advisors can or will advocate a stabilized post-war government.

' Over every man, woman and child in the United^ Stales hangs the ominous burden of colossal national debt. When Roosevelt took office in 1933, our national debt was $22,538,672,164.00. Under his spending spree it had •skyrocketed to <10,<I39,532,411.00 in 193!) before war costs began. When Roosevelt became Governor of New York in 1929 that state's public debt was $255,000,000.00.
