PAGE EIGHT Chicks Showing Scoring Punch In Workout Monday Afternoon By J, P, rntEKD Like a hunter checking Ills gun (o be sure it was okay before going in search of big Same, the Blytheville Ohlekasaws u numbered their cliief scoring weapons yesterday, nnd found them in perfect working order for the Invasion of the Pres- c'ct Curly Wolves Friday night. Tn fact, it has been some lime since the railblrds have been treated with such a rare exhibition of offensive football. Everything Hip •Chick regulars tried clicked to perfection. 'The line opened holo.s big enough for, ox carts to . be driven through. The backs, led by the re- dpiibtable touchdown twins,' Norman "Monk" .\fosley and Sonny Lloyd, scampered tlirougli those yannfng gaps, out Into the open < and down the field with the interference mowing , down the scrubs as blades of gross before a sharp lawn mower. Captain Danny War- rlngtrn and Buddy Baxter, first string ends, and Jack Jenkins and Johnson Blackwell, the No. 2 set, were magging passes from every angle. In short, it was just too perfect for just scrimmage. It was ta3 bad that It was Just In fun and not for keeps, us the tribe hopes :to .play for starting wlln Frlda- . night. . DIMy Makes Changes The Chicks were operating with n makeshift backneid. too. With Hugh "Tex" Htirbert absent for the first lime, so as to bake his right knee swollen from . several linir Infections, and Gene Hood gracing the sidelines ' because of boils en Ills neck, Head Coach Joe Dildy shitted Sonny over to his "former right half Inserted Willis Ford Into the fullback slot. and moved Long John Paulk to the blocking back. "Monk" completed the quartet, at his usual left half.-This unit worked like n well .oiled machine. Later the big chief .called on Paul "Bucky" Black-wood for fullback, and Elliot "Half Pint" Saliba for right. This group clicked almost as well • us the others. "Bucky" and Elliott were especially effecllve and their showing boosted .the baekfietd stock no little, especially with Hood and Harbert on the hospital list, Lilies Nearly Established Prom all appearances Coach Dlldy is pretty well set on his two lines. He Indicated early 'Mint he hoped J.o substitute • by' teams (is far as possible and hns worked to that end. The first group to be called on included Captain Wnr- lington and Baxter, ends; li. G. Johnson and Alvln "Man Mountain" Justice, tackles; Pat Chitmon and Raymond Bickerstatf, guards, nnd Alternate Captain "Wild Bill" Godwin, center. The No. 2. line was composed of Blackwell and Jenkins, ends; Travis "Hahs" Bennett and How ell "Hal" Alley, tackles; "Tuffy" Cramer and Oeorge "Bullet" Prullt, guiirds; 'and Bo Coppedge, center. Tackle Battle Likely When Hood returns to service, and it should be almost any time, Paulk likely will battle' it out with Johnson and Alley to see who'will get first call at the starting left tackle. Alley's cause has been hampered by the fact that he was able to get In only one day's practice last week. But lie is tough and rough, is one of the best defensive tackles on the roster', and is in first class ccnditton ' despite the absence. Confidentially, 'Dildy likes 'em that way. Regardless of what units may be used in practice, it does not necessarily mean that the case is (ARK,)' COURIER NEWS CoCaptains of the 1939 Arkansas Razbrbacks NF.W YORK, Sept. 12. (UP)— There are a number of very pathetic figures wandering dejectedly about the grounds of the West Side Tennis Club at Forest Hills these days. There is, for Instance, the "Tennis Rabbit" who Is allowed to play in Iho national championships just so that the draw will come out even, like the Hth guest at a dinner party. Then there arc the unseeded players who come equipped with "first ten" optimism but, unfortunately, public park strokes. Then there Is the official who has been ible to get only nine committee ba.-(i(Jes,,find has to go around im- -J give ail they've got all the way.

Wimbledon cfficials would I just as soon turn loose a herd of pigs or an elephant onto the stadium cturts as lo countenance the presence of a player with spiked shoes.
