PBIEKD The Blytheville Clilcfcasaws \vl fnce a Heavy and experienced ban of Clirly Wolves for their 1938 sei son opener Friday jiigiit will! Prrs cott. The roster siibmilled by Athlel! Director O. H "Buddy" Storey re veals that every one of Hie visitors starting lineup 1ms nl least on year c/ experience mid' four, In eluding Captain Watson Wilson 174-pound center, have earned l\\o letters. T. C. While, US-pound end Charles Orren, 185-poimd lac-hie and Hnlfback. Billy Stalriton, 160 are the other double letter earners Pram all Indications the Ciuh, Wolves will parade n well balancer team. The forward wnll averages a sliade less limn nfi pounds, <les|)itc the presence of a 155-pound guard Setn Wylie. Tlic heaviest and onl> 200-poimder is Robert Barker n tackle. . ' Heavy Baekfteld The backfield is even slight!) heavier, scaling, nc pounds pei man. M. Fergus:!), biillerlng full back, is tops with 185 pounds. Buck Halsell, halfback, pulls the pn\ r . bank-! to 180 and is said lo be one of Ihe. best running backs in the stale, in spile of only one - varsity seasrn, plus n couple of campaigns in Junior .high. Coach Storey, who halls from Paragould and Is well known in these parti, linvln; served a season as, umpire in the Northeast Arkansas League, said.his team uses n iiicdificd punt formation mid depends almost entirely upon the ground game. He says his ends are 'far from what one would call pass receivers." The Chicks will have n ten pound weltiH advantage in the forward wnll. but the visiting backs average more than 15 pounds over the tribal ball carriers. Chicks Hold Edirc Alternate Captain "Wild Bill" Godwin is the only Blytlievllle stnrtcr who graces the 200 circle He weighs around 210. Alvin Justice, v.ho has reduced from 210 Ir a. mere 193, nnd Jrhn Paulk. 103 come next. Captain Danny Warrington Is just a few rounds behind and scales in the IDO-pouud vicinity. Ra-ymonri Bickerslaff. ciionl weifrtis in the low 80's. while Budd\ Bn\ter hits the beam al ntamif 170. Pat Chltmpn. left guavd, is Ihe baby member, as far hs'nv:lrdin>Dfj is concerned, weighing nround 105 The bucks' are all about the same : size. Sonny Lioyd, Willis Ford Gone Hood arc listed as 1G5 pound- ers. Ncrm an "Monk" Mosley weighs 157. Barring little short of a miracle Hugh "Tex" Herbert is definitely out of the iirst game picture. Despite treatments Hugh's rifjht knee which lias become infected has not improved us rapidly ns imped and he may not even be asked li drcsp for the, game. Eugene Hood resumed scrimmage yesterday after having. a; boll lanced on his neck The other members of the squad are in near uerfcct condltlin. Withholds Lineup ; Head^ Coach Joe Dildv has not officially announced his stnrtmz lineup and likely will withhold statement until nt least, tomtrrow. and possibly just before time to dress tor the game. But it- appears as if lie plans to switch Ford {<• fullback and send Lloyd t: his old right halfback .post for his game Paul ."Bucky" Blackwood, the Osceola youngster, lias been rmininp so well in practice that lie may get the fullback nod. Then there is a p:ssibility thai Paulk will start at blocking back, instead of Hood which would mean that either U C Johnson or.Hmvell. Lalley wruld get the left tackle assignment. The next two days may help the bia chief to make up his mind. The Prescott roster is as folhus- U. of Arkansas Coaching Staff • Name .T. C. White Ccther Ford Olen Kelley Robert Baker C. Orren C.

(UP)- Thcre are only two things of which I am absolutely certain. One Is that no man ever got the u:ok lie wauled from a clrculntln; library the first lime he nsk'cil for it, and the other is oint lau Nova will bent Tony Gnlento when they light In Philadelphia Friday night. The Californlan can't miss \\in- niug. It money weren't the roH of all-evil, and If gamliliiif; weren't frowned on In niy circle, I'd go flown there with everything I could beg, borrow, and shake cut of baby's bnnk and bet it on Novn The report from Philadelphia Is that the good burghers of that city, cut of admiration for Galento, have, nindc him an even money favorite and are willing to put up a dollar on him for every. Nova dollar that appears. My, I «Lsh I weren't so straitlaccd, because. b:ys that Is not only taking candy out of n baby's month—11 Is Inking the candy out while the baby Isn't coking, cr when he Is busy ad- ustlng the ribbons on his cap. Let me explain why I am so losltive of a Nova victory. In the first place, Galenta can't lilt auy- norc. He proved that In the fight vith Joe Louis. Tony nailed Louis with a clean left in Ihe first round is very best left, Two or three years njj a similar JHtich from Galento \\ould have mocked .down anything that walks on two legs. In the third mind Galento hit Louis ngfiln. rigjit smack on the profile, and with everything ie had. Granted that the blow knocked Louis elf his test, but the champion scarcely took a count and came up to lake (he fight away from the belligerent bartender Now that Isn't hitting. l,:uis can't take much of a punch. Everybody kno.\s that. So, if Tony's best, punch couldn't flatten Louis how can anyone expect it 1 3 flatten Nova, Lou can take it. as yon well know if you saw his fight with Max Baer. Bre'r Bner clipped Nova with six successive right hand .wings PHONE 205 FOUYOUll POULTRY Nice, fat hens and fryers & other poultry at all limes. ft'E DRESS AND DELlVEIt FREE! STICKLER-GOODWIN CO. ,406 E. M.i In in the sixth round and barely slowed him down. Anil even Tcny's best friends wouldn't loll him that he hits any harder (liau Baer. Furthermore, Gnlento doesn't fleiirc to hit as hard against Nov as he did against Louis. The beating he t:ok from Louis just didn't Jlo him any good. Besides, he hnsn't trained ns well for this fight ns lie did for the shot nl. the title. And he wasn't any model of ilc- poilinent Ihcn as his manager, Jre Jacobs, udmlltcd after H \vas all over. Galento is likely to be n quick bleeder in (lie Nova bout Tlie cuts Louis inflicted haven'l completely healed, else why u-tiild he have spent an Imiir each day sonklng his features in n solution of bi-luc? It Isn't because he likes brine, l>ecr being much more to his laslc. Nova has ninny, advantages ever Oalento. He is younger, stronger, In much belter condition, nnd, never having had n shot at Ihe clinmpioiishlp probably much nrrc determined. Tony has had his wlrack nt the title ami nearly got killed. Lou may suiter the same fate when he makes Ills challenge, tail he doesn't know ilia I yet. If the events of Friday night prove this analysis ine:rrcct please don't hcai> coals of fire on 'my head, because tt is still liol from the outcome cf the Ambers-Armstrong business.
