FRIEND "Coach Arvil Green shook up his starting lineup and until the last three' minules of the game got little more results than the original regulars. Led by Harvey (Cotton) ' Pogue, . who suddenly turned Into a raging pile driver, the Chicks began a successful charge for the first time and moved the ball from their own 38 to the Humes one- foot yard, mainly on Pogue's plunging. But the d'rlvc failed. Humes kicked tut Immediately out lo Ihe 32. Hum'es drew a penalty for excessive time outs. Hood's Intended heave to Frank Nicholson was short. But the next one was perfect to the fleet right halfback who took the .oval behind the Bengal secondary and fell across the goal line to prevent a shutout. .- In -sheer statistics the tribe was Jar behind the visiting Memphians. JHutnes' offensive chart showed n ^riet 302 yards by rushing as com•pared to only 3fi for Blytheville, thanks to Pogue's spurt. They completed seven of nine aerial bombs for 90 additional yards. The Chicks hit the mark six limes out of 18 tries for onlv 40 yards. 27 of that coming ; on the toiichrtmvn chunk. Get Out In Front 'Taking the opening kickoff the ' V •But in the final period their barriers buckled as the Bengals scored three In rapid flee order. The first of the quarter come as Speros culminated a 43-yard drive with a short heave to Scwcll In the end zone. The extra point failed. Humes 39-0. Mulllns, n substitute end, recovered Hood's fumble on the Blytheville 33 mid set up the sixth touchdown. Jerry Crook, held out because of Injuries, celebrated his entry into the game with a 12-yard dash *o the 21. Speros then hit Mulllns with a short pass and he went over standing up. A plunge for the extra point was short. Humes 45-0. Sub Staces Marathon The Tigers got the ball on a quick kick by Hood and were Immediately penalized back to their own 25. But Clark more limn made up for It by staging his 75-yard marathon. Again the plunge failed. Humes 51, Blytheville 0. Docile and impotent until this stage of the game, the Marooncrs took hope as Poguc picked up a fumble and plowed nine yards through Ihe middle to the Blytheville 48 after the klckojf. He picked up 21 more on a half spinner through center to Humes 31. The burly fullback cracked right tackle for 11 and a third first down to the !mnc.s 20. Humes drew a five-yard penalty for excessive time outs. Hood klrtcd right end to the eight and Humes was penalized to the one for •Duelling. Back Into the game came he Humes regulars and they held "our times, Inking over on their own one-foot line. ICaine?.,! a whale of a tackle, punted out to the 32 and it appeared all over ns far as the Jhlcks' chances to score were concerned. Humes drew another timeout penalty. A pass failed. But on lhc next try Hootl found the range Nicholson for the touchdown. Pogue's attempted placement was blocked. The game ended on the first play of the next klckofl.

Crook SENDS HIS THANKS j The other day I dashed oil a piece about my good friend, Lieut. John B. (Wimpy) Burns, who at thnt time was laid up In n cast about his broken neck at the Fort Knox (Ky.) hospital where he Is currently stationed with the 611st Tank Destroyer Battalion. It wasn't long afterwards I received a letter from the "Wimp". II wns n most fluttering letter find while I hesitate to use It for obvious reasons, It contained a great deal of Information which I believe the fans would like to read. So, here It Is: Co. C, 071st T. D. Bn., FortKnox^Ky. Hi, Good Buddy: My good man, every day I read your stull In the home town paper, and believe me, J. P., It there Is a man In any arm of the service who deserves a medal or some kind of nn award 11 Is you. No kidding. You don't really know what a service and a help you are to tlic boys away from home. (Thanks, fella. It nakcs me feel good to hear you say that). Just from the article you wrote iboiit mo while I wns In lhc hospi- .al I have received no less than ;wo dozen letters from some of my raddles whom I never dreamed of liearlng from, and from all over the world, too. All were offering to nelp in every way they could. They gave me more encouragement than [he doctors at the liospitnl. Sure helps n lot, too, to know that folks take lime off from the hustle am bustle of this busy-dizzy or world of today to sit down and write you a four or five page letter. Klnda puts a lump In your Ihroat that Is hard to swallow. "RED" LUNSFOKI) WHITES Had one swell letter from Henry (Red) Lunsford and his wife, the former Jane Gosncll. They live In Los Angeles, Calif., now. Henry is working for n railroad and has been for the last 10 years.

Not to be outdone, however, the Blytnevlllc cheering squad was at its best and the band hadjtwo special numbers, In addition to its usual marching formntloDS. The six girls, two youths and eight-year-old toy mascot of the Humes High team, colorfully attired in the orange and white colors of that school, fairly danced In leading yells—that is, when they were not twirling in circles, ringing bells or doing other special stunts. The maroon and white clad girls of B.H.S., seven of them, did their most Intricate tricks and participated lu the feature band number, with several new yells given. l,ccl by prancing Frances Shouse —her baton twirling constantly—the band members raid majorettes | marched the field's length and rc- 1 turned to the center as the members spelled "Humes" letter by let- ler while tho musicians played. As each letter was formed, the cheer leaders led in yelling of that letter. Another feature was the shooting of the [fumes High "Tiger" by the Blytheville Chick "Indian" as the band played "Tiger Rag" In honor of the visiting team.

The unbeaten Army juggernaut takes on Pennsylvania today in a warmup for the big game, and Navy faces Purdue In what shapes up as a tougher game.
