FRIEND The Blytheville Clitcks complete (heir first week of drills this iifti'r- noon and have only two more ac< tiial (Jays of hard work remaining before they open the season against Prescott next, Friday night at Haley Field. Watching tile tribe twice doily a: they clicked through their maiicu vt'is I have hem Impressed with the following discoveries: 0) Tho team as n whole appears to be much farther advanced physically than nt the same lime last (2) The old vanguard, thnt Is the older members of the sqund, is setting a blistering pace lor Die younger group nml rookies U) low. <3) There seems to bt> a definite seriousness prevalent, rather than n haphazard, slipshod, half way method cf doing things. Head Conch Joe Dildy anil his lieutenants, Mitchell Best, backfield coach, and John Ed James. Junior mentor, have been blessed with excellent weather and have tiled to make Die best of their opportunities lest the weather mini should suddenly huve n change of heart. The boys 'have been driven at 11 steady, but not too hard n pace, and the results have been startling. There is n briskness hi their actions, Indicative of np- j preaching peak of physical perfection which the coaches have been trying to attain. Once thnt Is reached the training .schedule can be altered so as to keep In shape nnd gel the most out of their work. It has been ninas'.liig the way Caplnln Danny Warrlngton, veteran end; Alternate Captain Bill Godwin, sterling center, nnd Alvin "Man Moiinlaln" Justice, hard working and efficient tackle, have tnkcn the Initiative In the drills. Minus the fear of n recurrence to his once Injured hip Danny has already surpassed the physical and menial condition of last year -mid appears headed for a grcnt year, the greatest of (he four. Godwin, possessor of few bad hnbils, always remains in shape. But this Fall lie appears to have trimmed finer than usual and, barring Injury, should reiain all-state honors received last year, along with his captain.- For :hc past two years Justice has been burdened with an oversupply "of weight. But n hard summer's work, plus some digging In this week has trimmed him down to 190 pounds. His pro-season work lias been of the highest order, too. One of the most conscientious members of the squad is Eugene Hood, blocking tack;- who possibly may be assigned the task of lalllng the plays and directing the team' 1 play, it was learned from reliable .sources that Gene has studied the Chick plays sill summer, scouted anil rend everything he could find en football strategy nnd handling n lenui. He, loo, is in perfect shape, has added some needed poundage so helpful to n jlocker, and Is ceiinhi to help the ocnl cause no little. He is one of the best defensive members of the outfit. There are others of the older group who have been bearing down, nidi (is Howell Alley, Raymond BlekcrsUilT, Hugh "Tex" Harberl, and others. There has been little horse play during the drills. Thnt doesn't mean the youngsters haven't been getting fun out of the work. For they have, but they have Imd their hands so full they have had little time to think about cutting up, The addition of Coach Jnmcs had taken a- burden orr Dilily, and llic-n too, Slnnnu Culchen. who coached the Juniors yenr before last, has also taken a group. especially the ends. Dildy 1ms c:nniiMl his attention to the Ime.s- mcn, minus the terminals. Best nnd James have taken over the backs, Every minute of the sessions have been rterm!U>)y assigned. and evoiy one on hand has n specific, job all tlie lime. A few are sill) ailing. Johnson Blackwell, counted on io give Cap- Warrlngton • some relief at , TABR? couftnsfc NEWS Hopkc, Has Large Squad; Ten Games Are On Schedule right end, has a badly heel. Pat Chilman, prominent first string guard candidate, had bruked leg. Paul "Ducky" Blackwood, fullback, received a blow in the back of his left leg that 1ms given much pain. There arc others suffering from lesser nches but nV are expected to be eliminated within n day or so, with the possible exception of Blackwell who hn.s been unable to do any work foi three days and hasn't even don- tied a monkey suit.
