The Hurricane schedule also includes games with its perennial rivals, our Cliick.s and Paragoulrt, Me.ssick of Memphis, Nashville. Helena. Brinklcy. siibiaco and natcsvllle. Thus, as a Jonesboro sports wilier explained n. "the Hurricane will meet champions of class A, Class AA and Ihe overall sralc champs (referring to the Chicks), four Class district kiniis, the best team in Memphis and two Big Six teams."

A victim of (he war. the running game \vilt soon be back as -strong, if not stronger, as it was in the pre-war days. We base our prediction on the opinion of several high school coachc.s to K'Jlojn we have lalkeri and on ihe action of the smaller schools, .schools that never before had a track team, on adding the sport to their athletic, curricula!. Last year filythevlllc was the only Class A school In District Three Unit sponsored a high school track team. This year at least two other A .schools have announced intentions of running a team In thr di.sljicl meet friday. They are piggott and Manila. PigKOlt' dropped the spent before the war and Manila, as far as we have been able to Imd out. never sponsored the sport. Paragmild Is making preparations lo resume track next year and there are ir-porls tljat Jonesboro will follow suit which should make the 1050 DJslrirl Three meet a lium-djnger. Most high school coaches of this area feel the same way about track as H. A. "Sandy" Sandford or Paragould. that with spring football practice a thing of the past, track is the next best thins to keep young athletes in nooci physical condition. As for us. we will gladly welcome back die iiann .spring afternoons, a bottle of reel pop and a good track meet to watch. of 720 Go/fers Open SEC Tournament ATHENS, On,, April 27. <n*)— A field of 120 golfers .sot on*, today lo match stroke* for [he ern tntorcol legate golf championship, the SEC "itle and the SEC team crown.
