WALT HAMPTON and STAN WILLIAMS Therefore, I don't mind saying the Warn is in good h»n*P- One other thing. They have not as yet hired a replacement for assistant coach Charley Eagle. I have not ieen Charley since coming off vacation and I reckon he's still going through with it: taking over the Truman" Wildeats next semester. * + * As I «»y, the MS schedule is strong. Dwight ha» afr ranged 25 scuffles, not including the Holiday Tournam««t Mf*, Dec. 30 and 31. : All the contracts are in now for the tournament, so it ii definitely on the schedule, the Chjckasawi vi. LeachviU*, Jonesboro and Paragould. That, then, gives the Chicks Z7 games and 28 if y»U want to count the opening assignment in the state tournament, March 6-11. As you know, »U Class AAA quintet! automatically qaulify for the state. * * * The season Is to start Nov. 25, Welt Memphw here. There are four in a row at home, the regular schedule ending on the road at McClellaiv and Jacksonville, March 14. For the first time in— well, in some tirnf^-there are no battles with out-of-state squads. With McCleUan and Jaefc sonville in the Eastern Division now, the Chickasaws have four additional league games, thus Dwifht can afford to he more selective, unlike the football situation where Bob Williams went prowling in three other states in an effort ta beef up his book. Dwight possibly could've squeezed a couple Memphis teams in but he's not too anxious to get involved In the Cliff City situation which, you might have noted, has a bit of cutthroat about it. * * + The absence of opposition from Memphis does net by any means water down the schedule. Nor are there any gams* with the Northside Grizzliei from Fort Smith. This is strictly an economical move: It'a simply too costly for both teams to journey clear acrois the state for 32 minutes of action. Last year the Chickasaws traveled by chartered but t« Li'l Rock Hall on a Friday and then went on up to Fort Smith for a Saturday engagement. It was not a cheap weekend. The Chickasaw boosters chipped in to soften the bite. * * * Speaking of Finances Yes, and speaking of finances, it is a p!««ur» ta rejwi that BHS basketball ended up in the black last leaten. Gate receipts averaged about $300 (or each homt Me* lion. Not bad. Fact, Dwight thinks it's downright good. The coach, with relish, took particular note of the keen Interest by the student body, always a telling rode*. "Maybe It'll be even better next year." These coaches are never satisfied, are thtyT Thank goodness. * * * Don't ask ME what kind of basketball team BHS is going to have next year. Ask Walt and Stan. It'a their baby now. ion .t UA FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.
