Chicks Count Cripples With prospects of another hard fight staring them in the face, the Chicks are checking their hospital list from the Humes shellacking In hopes of being ready for the big blow. And prospects appear none too bright to be at full strength. Coach Ai vll Green reports that one definitely is on the no- play list, while some half dozen more are listed as probables. J .L. Johnson's shoulder' is yet too sore for him to get back In, Gerald (Corky) Blomeycr, one of the finest snappcrbacks in' the conference, has been ill all week but reported yesterday. Eugene Kemper, tackle, also is tabbed as an almost definite loss. The lesser ailing Include Stan Hood, Charles Roy Lutes. It Is quite like- ly that all but Johnson, and possibly Kemper will be' available. But at that, Coach Green can come up with .some pretty substitutes to plug . the gaps. Chester Caldwell did a great Job for his first time at the left end position and should improve. Junior Stone stepped into the tackle breach beautifully, despite his limited experience and nge, while Dan Caldwell's handling of the team at quarterback was acceptable, except for a few expected mistakes. He definitely was on the spot but the pressure didn't appear to bother him. Backfieia Changes IJliely In the event Hood will be unable to take his regular left halfback spot Dan is -.the likely successor. David Sylvester. is expected to return to quarterback, with Harvey (Cotton) Pogue and Frank Nicholson rounding out the backfield. Joe Ferguson is a certainty at the right .end. John Bruce Wilson is a right tackle fixture. Captain Joe Neil Ratcllff and Biliy Kooncc are the probable tackle nominees and Blomeyer over the ball.

The big sea bnttle was only'50 miles from us. When you come to think nboiit It that is an 'awful short distance. One of the sweepers near us fished a Japanese pilot out of the water. He had been drad three or four days. The Ibwer part of his face was ^hot away, one leg was gone and hts arms were broken. He was a mess'. , _ Perhaps the most awe inspiring siehts I have seen yet was three nights ago. It was growing dark and everyone was relaxing at General Quarters n little bit because we had been sublccted to practically no night bombing when one of the ships opened up with trncer bullets, followed by more ships. That was just nhend ol us. The Jftp plane burst into flames. In less than a minute there were four Jap planes on fire in the air at the same time, one crashed ahead, one astern, and two on our port side. A minute or so later another went down in flames. Of the six twin engine bombers attacking us five were shot down. That was a sight I shall never forget. Never a dull moment I <We will be glad to move out of "ere.
