Greeted by Ideal weather condition, Hie (.nine is expected to at- i-acl o, 1( . of ,I K , lnrgt , st a . mvl)s ol Hie season and will get under way promptly at 8 o'clock. Conch Arvll Green gave the Chicks cue final checkup last night In a Di'lef but enthusiastic workout under (he lights and pronounced them in perhaps the best physical and menial condition of the campaign. Question marks that have been hovering over Stan Hood, fleet left Halfback, and J. L. Johnson, elan- Bated left end, have disappeared •iiid both should be nt tliolr best fpr this which may mark the beginning of a colorful and friendly rivalry. ' Hood Is Kit Hood has been bothered with a Painful pulled muscle In his legs which handicapped Ills running no little In tlie overwhelming defeat ut North Little Rock last week, But lie has nursed the member along carefully and practically eliminated all the trouble. His return to form will greatly increase (he chances of the tribe against the powerful Bliiff City cniry. "Sleepy" knocked down a shoulder at the Wildcat liar and hasn't been up to par.

Aiuly Rogers, a member of the sports staff of the Commercial Appeal, is expected to be on "and to cover the Chick-Tiger scrap for his newspaper tonight. It also will be a sort of homecoming for Andy, who is a native dyed-in-the-wool. Arknnsnn. He covered sports for the Pine Bluff Commercial when the Zebras and Chicks were in the midst of their heavy feuding and, naturally, helped heap on the coals and keep (lie thing blazing — for Tine Bluff. And who could blame him? Formcv Arkansas Coach Jimmy Patterson, who should lj e quite familiar with Arkansas Jootbal) since he was head man of tiic Kordycc Bedbugs for •many seasons, is bringing one of tlie finest Humes teams in history of the school. The Bengals have rolled up an impressive record of fix wins and two defeats, scoring 102 points • 51 by the opposition. Their winning streak of six in a row was checked two weeks ago by the South Side Scrappers. C.B.B., second ranking Memphis team and just n peg above the Tigers, dLslied put a .15-7 defeat iast week to extend their winning ways. But the Bengals are due for a rebound and it may come with full£ force tonight. - / . -• >•' — > With possible exception of 185- pound Billy Oswald, star tackle, the Memphians are due to be at full strength for this invasion. Oswald is not scheduled to break in the- lineup due to injuries. They will flash in Jerry Crook, fullback, one of the best in Memphis prep , circles who is due to bear Uie jl offensive brunt of their attack. The "Red" Williams, 157-pound „ and Don Kaurcz, 130-pound tnckle and a likely candidate for all-Mem- cxporience the —^-.- .. decided edge. Thanks to the pair of 100-pound tackles, Knurez and Billy Davis, Iheir line averages approximately 170 pounds, or an average of 12 more than the tribe. The back- iields rate about even in poundage. Brisk lialtle Anticipated Fans can expect a brisk scrap between two fast elevens which feature speedy offensives, equally divided on the ground nnd in the air. Featuring young crook, a dashing 150-pouncier, the Bengals operate from the single wing,and utilize to the best advantage the speed of the backfield quartet. They use an abundance of spinners, reverses, ami lightening thrusts at the line, in addition to forward passes p thrown principally by their star buck. The Chicks have concentrated on a running attack with practically Ay 3. P.

If I were to listen to my good sense and Instinct I would pick the Zebras who have the Injun sign on the Tigers. But, dumb-like, I ,am taking the performances for the year and choosing Little Rock to cop. But, please don't come and rub It in, in case 1 pick the wrong horse. I just like the averages, that's all. TROJANS TO TKOMI' RVSSELLVILLEAT HOT SPRINGS—I realize full well that the Crimson Tornado has been blowing a lusty gale over in Rus- scllville. I also am mindful of the fact that Coach Wallace Bnlley has come up with the finest team in recent years. The cold black figures also reveal that on the basis of comparative scores they should get the edge, since I like the riggers so well. But this guy Canada plays on the Hot Springs outfit. That's all, brother, and it's Hot Springs by a couple of touchdowns, at Jcast. NORTH -LITTLE .ROCK, AT ; FT. SMITH—One of the biggest disappointments in the Big 15 has been Fort Smith.

NASHVILLE AT HOPK-For the last several seasons the Nashville entry has rated one of the strongest non-conference teams in the state. This year is no exception. They have something down there and are due to thump the Bobcats, despite the fact that Coach Foy Hammons' charges held El Dorado to a tie and won a couple of games. Look for a tight score.

Announcement- This is to announce to our friends and the general public that we have sold our Hardware and Furniture business to the Missco Implement and Hardware Company of Osceola. This concern will consolidate their stock of implements, etc., with our stock of hardware and furniture in our present location and will continue to operate a hardware, furniture and implement business. We know of no finer gentleman than Mr. Faber White, who is co-owner and will be manager of this large concern'" We think Mr. White will give Eastern Arkansas the finest mercantile establishment it has ever known. We are proud. to see our business pass into the hands of this able business' I man, Our business has operated for sixty-four years without a' day's let-up or business failure of any kind. It was formed by • our father, N. G. Cartwright, in 1880, He came to Arkansas a' ., young man.from Elizabeth City, North Carolina, after the- Civil War. He was in General Lee's army and surrendered 1 : under General Lee at Appomattox. In coming to Arkansas; he settled at El mot, five or six miles north of ,0sceold; and : married Sallie Elizabeth Williams and started farming!': The'--•• ,;:^;"bverflow,got!his crop for three years straight and he decided'; to move to Osceola and open a harness shop, from which' our present business grew. He wasoneof Osceola's first mayors, when the population was only 250 people. Later he served- Mississippi County twice as County Judge. He was an 'ardent Democrat and his greatest disappointment was whenWil- Jiam Jennings Bryan failed to be elected President of • the" United States. IT ." • We have hoped for years that we would be able to say there will always be a Cartwright ; s Hardware, but disap-' pointments are always just around the/corner. With the passing of our brother, Finiey Cartwright^ this past July, we decided to retire from the mercantile business. We-have worked hard and possibly deserve a rest. Our business was very much like a ball team, we were the players and you were the crowd in the grandstand. We wanted to make every hit a home run but of course didn't. We did win the game, however, and at this time, we want to give you credit for much of our success. • '•'', ; 7 ' ' We are quitting the hardware business but we are not quitting Osceoia. We were born here and want to die here. At this time, we want to thank you from the bottom of our. hearts for the part you played in our bail game CARTWRIGHT Osceola, Arkansas Raymond Cartwright . ; Vance Cartyright
