Super rabid perhaps is a better and more fittin; descriptive term, though it falls far short of revealing just how Karl craves to shoot the winged fowl.

It was no lime at all before they liad trekcd through the water with the heavy bags of decoys and arrived on the scene as Ihe day was breaking through tiie clouds.

He Is extremely popular wherever he goes. Bennett did not have much ot a chance to really show his finest wares the last time he wrestled here. He was on the losing end of a straight fall lag match In which he and his mate were considerably outweighed, a condition that developed out of a last minute substitution. Roy Allen was originally booked but couldn't make 11, so the promoter was iorced to bring in Irish Eddie Malone, the only available man at that late hour. But Ihe fans did get a good glimpse at the famous Bennett biffing and roughstuft lor which he lias gained quite a reputation. It will bo on display in this show. The league leading Utlle Rock Tigers buried them under a 48-0 score. Their second trip to Ihe capital cily was lillle, if any more successful.

I'm sure she can count on the Blylheville people to cooperate in this very vital and important appeal, especially when a mere postal card and a couple of mlnules work can turn the trick to fourth period opened. It netted their five other first downs and two touchdowns without extra points. One outstanding feature of Ihclr fine performance was Ihe great downfield blocking, bctler-lhan-av- cragc tackling, and strong, rugged line play. From end to end, Don Hiley, John Hoover, Billy nracey, R. B.

Reach Scasun Teak The Papooses reached their season peak last week when they trounced a heavily favored Joncs- torp Whirlwind outfit, 13-12, avenging an earlier 10-6 defeat. The game was not as close as Ihc score might Indicate. The local Juniors clearly outplayed their larger, more experienced rivals (or the first three quarters, rolling iip 10 first downs to two during that time. The visitors racke,] up those two tirsl downs at the beginning of the mud battle and didn't register another before the alert, hard charging, inspired Paps until they started a passing assault just before the ciding scrap with the Osccola Seminoles appears probable for Ihe following Wednesday night, Nov. 29.
