Coach Charlie Parker, who v a member of tlic Chlckasnw "squad under Conch Joe IDllrty, has devised n clever open-styled offense for the Cralghcad Juniors, lie Ims tutored them to throw, that bull around as If were n basketball, Instead of a pigskin, and IL has been highly successful. The Whirlwinds have been checked only once this season, by the Little; Rock South Side Juniors, 12-0.

Stick To Theory ."Pop" believes he has the answer, if only his youngsters have enough power and defensive strength to curry out his plans.

The Papooses showed definite signs 3f potential scoring power In Hie lastMwo games, especially ngntnst the. strong Kelscr YellowjackcU, nnd may turn the trick.

But as the tans got settled for the skilled duel the storm broke. And, naturally, It was "Wild Bill" who generated it. Bui before it was all over he was sorry. For Buck gave- him thorough going over, so thorough In fact that It affected-him most peculiarly. He came over to the comer where Lawson was seated trying to recover .from the terrific battle strain and instead of letting g- vicious kick fly as everyone expected Canny,stuck out his hand knd* congratulated him for being s? .tough.; The fans were stunned. Nothing like that ever happened here' before; not from Canny. '->Canny opened the match with an assault in Buck's powerful arms and the strategy paid off in seven minutes with a stomp. •• In the dressing room Buck solved that problem. He painted his left arm with olive oil, and dabb6d a bib In his hair for additional pur- t poses Naturally, Canny was unable to hold him as the second fall got under way.

Later he was on the receiving end of a touchdown pass from Jack Elliott, a bright prospect. He snagged another for another and went over but the play was called back because of a penalty. He supported young Dickie Grcenwell to add ma'tcrial strength and give the local Juniors a two way attack, Instead ot p. single punch, While McFnrland was riding the bench with injuries Dickie carried much of the burden on his slim shoulders nnd did a good job. He should do even better with some help.. i Makes Tiro Changes Co.uli Moslcy may be'forced to mrikc at least two chaiiges.ln the starting lineup.

Billy Bob will go back to his post. Traylor, n mite of a chap with sniuly hair nnd a fiery, fighting spirit, has proven a valuable addition all year.
