six 'AKK.l f:<HIR]J.;|{ NRWS \\ \vi-:i)Ni ; :ai)AV, 10:10 Chickasaws Open Grid Season At Portageville / - *- • - .—.—— ^^y BRUSHING TJP SPOUTS By Laufcr MIJCT.ffli Games Added lo Schedule Send Chicks to Missouri Town for First Game. The 1930 edition of Henry Hudson's Blytheville Chlckasaws vu!l open an eleven game schedule Friday when they journey to Portaee- ville, Mo., lo tackle ihe high .scho^: team of the Missouri town. The chances of the Maroon anJ White squad starting olf the season with a victory this year arc exceedingly bright ns the Portage- ( vllle game should really prove no ! more than nn appetizer for the j Hudsonmen. It the Chicks can reverse the result of their firs', game ! last year. In which they lost I' the Hine Blulf Zebras, and finish in the whilrwuid stride they hit lasi ' season, the locals should have glorious season. After losing to r i highly reputed Zebras in their in- j itlal 1929 contest Hudson's charge-; i fought their way through the remaining ten games without the loss of a single conflict. A nine game schedule was originally slaled for the Chicks this .season wl!h the first game to be played with Earlc here on Sept. 2«th. The Chick mentor decided to give his green eleven, built around] five lettermen, a battle before arraying his men against the strong Eo'rle squad and scheduled the Hortagevillc game. On lop of that Hudson added a game with Ihe formidable Central High team of Memphis to be played at, Memphis October 4th, giving the Chicks n lineup of 11 games, bristling with slrong opponents. Important OamfS Here The schedule this year favors the Chicks in that seven ot the eleven games including all the contests; classed as the most crucial with the exception of the Memphis Central high game to be played here. Yesterday the varsity eleven went scampering through a scrimmage session with the grass cutters with Coach Hudson devoting a big share of his attention to his backflcld In developing some plays In time for the Friday contest. McAfee, a reserve quarter for Memphis Central last year, did most of the signal barking with one or two other backs taking brief turns tit the job Headed by the redoubtable Pete I Craig, 1929 all-state fullback. Hud- | son's backfield should shape up (n! good fashion this season despite a | decided weakness In reserve strength. Petc'b little brother. J. T.. who put on about 10 pounds additional weight during the summer, should' provide some sliifl-y running for the Chlckks.,. and Tom Short, it he really bears clown all the way, should make (he grade in scintillating style. Westbrook, a husky youngster, awkward but with plenty of speed when lie decides to run. Is a-fifth back that will see plenty of service but beyond thl£ group Hudson does not have much choice. l Lint Is Problem -In the line, the-boy who touiiri himself at, center Mast year aftei nn indifferent, .season in 1028 George Matthews, looms as the bulwark of the defense while Rayder, Chick captain, who will hold down one ot the tackle posts, is the only other reliable veteran. Tne rest of the line is a noble experiment. Ord Marshall, the lanky giant, .who was counted upon to furnish a big part of the first line of defense, apparently has definitely decided to remain out of school. Alexander and Luckett are two small but aggressive guards.

In which I'll cast one vote tin with Tnm Lnlrd, Hundreds of thousands of motorists have learned through experience that it pay*, both in dependable motor performance and in low cost per mile, to stick to "Standard" Improved Gasoline. Summer and winter—in. hot weather and cold---over rough roads and paved highways—they have found that this uniform-quality gasoline gives more for their money in motoring satisfaction. There are definite reasons why this is so. • Back of every gallon of "Standard" Improved Gasoline are the resources and experience of one of the world's great petroleum producing and manufacturing companies, with a laboratory famous throughout the industry for the'meticulous care with which it inspects and guards the quality of every product which bears the "Standard" Name. Before a "run" of "Standard" Improved Gasoline is approved for shipment to the filling stations, Jest after test and check after check are made. "Initial" and "end point"—fractional balance- absolute minimum of sulphur—freedom from gum and other impurities, etc., must conform, to the rigid "Standard" Specifications. The result is that you can buy with assurance the gasoline sold from any pump that bears the "Standard" Bars-and-Circle Trade-mark. This mark is your guaranty of unvarying quality.
