It not only'• discharged llielf v heavier, more "experienced rivals, but proved much the stronger down the slretch The final period found (hem sifting through the Panther line with surprising.ensc to smother the passing attack that proved bpiliersome earlier In the game. Billy Bracey, guard, John Hoover and Don Besharsc, tackles, were particularly effective, not to overlook the ends, Harvey Eaton and Dorr 'Hucy,- who ttirncd In their greatest games. , The Chicks, their lineup drastically revamped by Coach Arvll preen, had little chance against the, Humes Tigers, third ranking Memphis team and a potential city seventh defeat of the year.

Two big steps were taken by the ulgwlgs at Iheir recent meeting of the Arkansas Education Association lit Little Rock. An amendment permitting the schools lo vote on Issues In sports which they participated was passed.

When this matter was In the talking singe about a year ago the coaches realized that a bit' Job faced them In order to get their plans into 'operation. They knew that the smaller schools held Ihe key; schools which did not participate in football nnd, consequently, had no interest In the progressive welfare of the sport. So a campaign was liumclied lo get nil amendment through which would limit the school heads from voting on Issues In sports they actually imrllelpalcd.
