COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER JO, Strong Humes Tigers To Perform Here Friday Memphians Rate High In League v Chick Opponents Have -Won Six Out Of Eight Games This Season ' ' By ANDY ROGEKS ,Commei<dal Appeal Sports Writer MEMPHIS, Nov. i5—The Humes Tigers, present third-ranking learn In the Memphis Prep League, will be In fine shape for their invasion of Blythevllle, Friday night, to meet the Chickasmvs, Coach Jlm- ihy Patterson indicated hero Monday, DOPE BUCKET n t. P. IKUND MAKES A PROMISE ta Job on my own ' and 'hot Afrely '" 1 •The-former mentor for the Fordyce Redbugs, and Arkansas college performer at 'Henderson State Teachers College, was only worried about Billy Oswald, a tackle who has been sidelined with a Wg injury for the past two weeks. The rest of the Tiger forward wall will be Intact, as well as a quartet of top-notch backs. ; Operating from a single wing formation, the only club In Memphis that uses this system on offensive, the Tigers have chalked up six victories in eight appearances this season, five of these in conference competition. In their only non- conference engagement, "the Tigers scored a 7-0 triumph over tho ..Golden Bears of Jackson, Tenn. V Strong on Defense :"r The Tigers are particularly strong on; defense, and won their first four games without being scored on.- In their last two appearances, however, the Tiger defense cracked and a late-starling South Side eleven racked up a 13-2 triumph While Christian Brothers College smashed them, 35-7. South Side ranks fourth in the conference. C. When Cant. James. 'Ace Puckett^rom spouting oil. was here enroute to Fort George Meade, Md.j his headauarters, he told me he had Just returned from a very interesting trip to France and as soon as he got back home and settled down lie was going, to give out with the details via his usually deserlplfve letters, • He waited so long to, write after leaving here I- felt reasonably sure he had been sent right out again; which proved to be correct as related In his letter dated Oct. 28. But instead of relating his trips he branched but Into something else. And I am not sure If what he had to say in the last part didn't carry a more-than-touch of Irony. What do you think? .-'. .

I am very sorry that I have-waited so long to write since my short visif home, but I have been prettj well on the move.since scemg deai ole Arkansas, BlylhcVllle anu-JcJn- cr In particular..It so happens thiil I have had twoirlps since Sept. 25 one to England, and .the other to parts unknown. I Had planned to sec Marshall Blackard in Englam but didn't get near whercOie is hospitalized. Have you heard anything about him recently? FEELING IS GKKAT Jiauerz. who Is Memphis honors stellar linesmen. headed for All-, this season, are GIVES NEW ANGLE Something struck me 'about fodt- iall In high school there that 1 hlnk expresses': the thinking of a ady who lias tjie interest of boys nnd girls at lie art above all else In his world. Miss Hardy said uoirie- hlng alwut some people thought Jicy should drop high school foot- jail for (lie duration; said the boys were too young and too small. Miss Hardy said you know these- boys and girls will only go lo hlgl school once. She said they deserve football as n part of their schoo nnd tlmt she would do everything in her power to sec that it was continued, J. P., that was a though and expression thai can come onl from a person who thinks of lx>y and girls In terms of chnracte above all else. Those boys who go out and give all they have evei though they lose nnd the student- who stand behind them show the are not .quitters even though the odds arc against them. No, J. P.. athletics arc Just as much a part of school program as any subject offered, and win, lose, or draw, it should continue. • Now, I would like lo give n few pointers to our boys on -the etiquette of men returning to civilian life. You know the military bigwigs give us all -,pointers on how to do, net and live In any foreign country wo might be going. So, I think it Is high time someone gave thought to 'arkin To Play keola Friday ' Scminoles In Return Engagement Seek To Avenge Earlier Loss OSCEOLA, Nov. 15.—Smarting under the 20-0 defeat l>y the Hughes Jlue Devils to snap their uninterrupted series of successful Homecomings Hint extended over n decide, the Osceolii Scihlnolcs sire 'prc- iinrlng for another severe battle t week.

' Boast Fine Backs -; The "two halfbacks, Gene Curtis and Nick Speros. are above the average, but scarcely can keep up with Crook on offense. At blocking back, Frankle Wilder, a 125-poimrbr, who b/oxes a little on the side, also is n top-notch: "performer despite his size He runs very little, sticking primarily to his. job as blocking back, but when he does its on a quarter-back sneak' that has been one,of the major puzzlers to prep coaches In Memphis this year.
