''Ralph '(Happy) Reed, « will-o'- UiV-'whlsp runner with a dazzling change of. pace arid a'strong whip- like-throwing arm/ was the biggest noise in the first Cyclone triumph oiier,a : Maroon and White team In school history. The all-Arkansas High;' : School Conference nominee not only set (he winning pace on the.ground with 62 yards by rushing, bat completed six of 15 aerial bombs for an additional 173 yards, and provided the longest and most spectacular jaunt of the exciting evening/with a 82-yard touchdown run after taking the second half klejjof'f.' ,„-.,/• Long . Bans Numerous 1 Marathon "sprints came a dime a}"dozen and helped to keep the fans lri.nigh spirits as they watched their Chicks go do»n for the eighth time,this season, four in rapid succession. Emmett Haney, considered qns'vof the. fastest in the state track circles, was on the waiting list of a favorable glance from Lady Lucf in the second period when he had a long, arching pass batted into his -arms while goafl-^ard bound and didn't even have to check, his stride to complete the additional 35 yards for the second gussellville ..touchdown. -,The customers hardly had become adjusted once again to the stadium seats in the second half when Reed took Harvey (Cotton) Pogue's klckolf on'his own 18, dipped and darted in and out of the onrushing tribe and finally picked an opening to, race*82 yards for another score, »»Jack Ingram, a tall gangling center r with ham-like hands, speared a toss from Stan Hood intended lor J, TJ. Johnson and outdistanced the field to open the fourth quarter with touchdown no. 4. ' >" , .Poguc Makes Dash , Then in the.latter part of the same' period -Harvey (Cotton) Pogue, bruising Chick fullback, gave the faithfuls,their first big cheering inspiration of the well pla;,ed game when he snagged a Eussell- ville pass out In the flat and simply ran off and left the visitors to score £he tribe's only touchdown. It was a brilliant 6-yard run • • i * Bitterly contesting every surrendered tyard, the ' Chicks lost to a supe'nor .eleven as the records 7,'lU prove beyond a shadow of doubt. The ifsitofs rolled up 15 first downs as compared to five for the locals They finished with 206 yards on the ground by rushing to 37 net for Blytheville. Their supremacy In the air was about as overwhelming, 113 ' gained yards in six passes to four of 14 for 36 yards * i. , Punters i^In^Fijrm touchdown, Reed plowing the-last yard after lie set up the score with u 25-yard chunk (o Wallace Parker, his left end and a late starting selection. Haney moved It up to within blowing distance with n 11- yard sneak through the.middle. Chicks Bow Necks The Chicks bowed their necks and battled the visitors on even terms until the- second quarter when the Tornado began to blow up another storm during which Lady Luck frowned and smiled. Frank McCutcheon, fleet left halfback, broke awny on n 55-yard run over the Chick goal line only to have the play called back and penalized 15 yards for clipping. But it was just a minute or .so Infer that Haney generously received a batted pass Into his arms nnd had only to run for the second touchdown of the game. Hecrt, nlwnys dangerous, nearly got away on another scoring Just as the half closed. He intercepted a chick pass on his own nine-yard lino, cut sharply to his left and sold out down the sideline. 1 ;. Out'In the clear he stumbled, fumbled nnd fell, John Bruce Wilson recovering for the. Iiomcllngs, Russcllvlllc led 13-0 at the halfway mark. Visitors Score Last After Reed had pierced the Chick's hopes for a very close game with his 82-ynrcl kickoff run to start the third quarter, Blythevlllc got Its real scoring op- porluiilty late In the round only to have Ingrnm spoil It with another pass Interception and subsequent touchdown. 20-0. The filial scoe came on next to the last p^lay of the game. Riissell- ville received, after Poguc hnd scored oii .the Interception nnd boolej the extra point by placement, and generated nnotlier sustained drive that carried 81 yards to the score.
