Central high Warriors ril ' Memphis Saturday night and nn- i ally forge ahead of tho Memphis eleven for a 19 to 13 triumph. | :• In one of UK most bitterly con- | tested battles at Hodges Field in '• • Memphis In many a day, accord- j 1 Ing to Memphis sport writers, the Chlckasaws demonstrated a Irut fighting spirit by their performance . tb defeating the formidable Central aggregation, • ; Pete Craig, 1929 all-state fullback, and a formidable candidate to rep>at »t. the post tills season, played one of the greatest games of his colorful career in stand out head 1 .iyid shoulders above the other players on the field. Memphis spori writers described Craig ns the best . hl«h school back to perform in the \J3hifI City In a number of years /\nd officials of the game likened ,../ b,im to the greatest back ever pro• . dueed in" Memplils, Jack Wakefleld. . The Chicis, by if.c way, were the only grldders back in '22 that succeeded in making Wakefleld and his M. U. S. machine bite thedust. . Craig scored aU three of the ' Chlckasaws' touchdowns with smashing line bucks and he counted th? first and second touchdown;; by taking matters into his own hinds and crashing the Memphis line time after time. On his thirc • touchdown parade the Blytheville line.began to function in, excellent ' style and driving hard paved the way for the big B. H. S. fullback 1 to"score the- winning louchdowr which'came in the last three-minutes of play. • ' -Leslie Nicholson, fast stepping back of the Central aggregation '•personally'accounted for both of the Memphis team's touchdowns by- two long dashes down the field. The first came before play had'hardly started vhen Nicholson carefully hugged the while pigskin to his white sweater and sprinted away en cutback plays as the Blythcvlllc players vainly • sought the ball rar- r^er.ohly to find him too late as splendid interference swept them olit'-oi the pl*yj. But for the two brilliant'runs by Nicholson'and a dangerous - aerial attack the \Var. riors failed /to accomplish much; • against the Chicks. • _ j >-.,'• -Un* SUris Working ' ' "i Tlxi - Blytheville forward" wall 1 piiiyedi-nice defensive game and finally began driving hard on. the offense. to take' the play away from the:Memphians-in the final quar- feiV".

It will be remembered that during the year 1929, there was a 25 per cent increase of taxes in these districts for the purpose of recuperating losses sustained in the failure of the Peoples Bank, and that tlie purpose of that increase was fully served in the one year, and the tax reduced back to the normal amount for this year. You can therefore learn the amount of your paving tax for 1930 by looking at the amount shown on your 1928 tax receipt. The purpose of opening the tax books at this time is to give the property owners in these districts ample time in which to make their tax payments, and it is the hope of your commissioners that taxes will be paid promptly by all property owners in order to prevent any possible necessity of an increase in the tax rate again which could be caused by any considerable amount of delinquencies. DAN G. STOUT, M, FITZSIMMONS, C.J.EVRARD, Commissioners. Taxes are payable at the office of C. J. Evrard, at 111 North Second Street. :
