PAGE SIX COURIER NEWS Regulars, Reserves See Action Against Outclassed Eleven The'RIytheville Chickasaws opened their ambitious 19. football agenda just about as expected last night by defeat' Dunaway and his assistant, Jelf Sherman, former Blytlieviile student, in the st.inds the Chickn- -saivs showed early season weaknesses which may mean that Hi Zebras will'nil the air with pnsse when they come here /or that BIG game Sept. 29 oiid that tiiey ma> net have lo he so careful nbou' the usually potent Chick .leiial attack. However no one was moie cognizant of the Clilckb' defects In their first performance under /lie than Head Coach 'Joe Diltty and his aides so 'Mr. Dunaway, \vlio Is a post graduate of Uie school of foothill psychology, \\lll probably have lo go deeper than what appeared on the surface last night to discover the weak point'; that will still be weak points come Sept 23. But back to last night's licl- raisei tlie Chickasaws flashed n svifl moving offense leininiscciit of their flash of recent years with more than just-an indication that the cuirent Chick backflelci lias speed to buin. Scnny Uoyd and Monk Mosley, the touchdown twins, streaked here and tlieie all night ns had been expected but probably more pleasing \\as, the manner in which Paul Black wood and John Paulk slammed (heir way thiough n sireabie Prescott line. With Hugh Haruert In harness, soon the Chick backs should boast potential touchdown ability at every turn Of course there was never any doubt as lo the putcome of the gpi'ie from the moment that Willis Ford, Chick: fullback, pulled in the opening kickoff on his 15-yaid line and sped 85 yards for the first touchdown But a lam el wieatli must go to Robert Bnker, 200- pound Piescolt lineman for, a smashing defensive game that frequently gummed up a prcclslDii- styled Chick play. Baker, playing defensive left end, showed an aggressiveness and ruggcdncss that could well be used by many vBig 15 learns in the stale. And the langy Baker occasionally grabbed a. pass on .oiTense that the rattier shoit Chick backs simply couldn't get to Mosley resumed the scoring chore again- after the second hnlf opened, He van u I'rescoU punt hack from Die Prescott 4K (o (lie 17-yard line Then he ambled over for the touchdown on the first piny from scrimmage. Mosiev's touchdown spree was still in vogue ami the youngest of the trio of Mo.iley bjy.s who hnve carried Chic); scoring burdens so ably sped 22 yards for another touchdown. -!fc followed that up uith n 40-yard return of n pnnl for .another Imiclirtowu before the third quartet- ended. Paulk gave an exhibition of plunging as the game neared Us end. The big blocking back and lineman didn't go in for much dodging but he did an elfcctive Job of crashing nlong. Sallba polished off the last touchdown of the gome with a six-yard spurt. The Chick's were deep in Prescott territory ns the game closed.

But it was against the first stringers that the visitors flashed Iheli mast serious menace. The visitors only serious touchdown bid came In tiie foMith quarter. It was Buck Halsell, a nifty 180-pound back, who bole (he burnt or the' Wolves offensive efforts: it was Halsell who suddenly broke loose just when it appeared llmt the Wolves would neve'i _get out of the shadow of their own goal posts. Halsell slipped off on a 43 yard jaunt to the Blylheville 40 yard line that was halted only when Mosley, Cluck safety tripped him down. Then,Halsell hurled a pass to the ever-present Baker that sent the Wolves to the Chicks' 24-yard line. Halsell then passed to Smith and the Prescott quarterback was downed oh the Chicks' 4 yard line. That was as rar ns lhe Wolves advanced. The Chicks took possession of lhe ball-some eight yards up they overwhelmed Prescott scoring efforts. • The big hump in the Chickasaws' scoring was charted In the first period. After Ford's long distance sprint Uoyd followed with a 56- jard gallop from n quick-breaking play that for sheer timing was probably the best executed touch-' • down play of the night. Uoyd also annexed the third touchdown after Blckerstatf recovered a Presoctt fumble on the Wolves' 19 jard line One play from scrimmage did the Job. Mosley and Warrington collaborated <n the fourth touchdown. It was a pass play tnat cauglil the visitors flattooted and sent War- rtagton trotting off without fear of molestetkn n a 24-yard play A poor Prescott punt attempted in the face of & hard rushing line, set the stage for the Chicks' pay-off play. - . ; The' Chicks had another sccring opportunity before the first quarter ended with almost an entire, reserve team 1n the game bul couldn't cash in. A recovered fumble on Prescotl's 10 gave the Chicks an <pportunity but the Wolves held ; well enough to take Uie ball over on their 2-jard line. The reserves couldn't push across a score though dcing alright by themselves on defense and the lirst stringers added the only touchdown of the second period shcrtly before tlie first half closed. Mosley did the job In able fashion. He set ., the stage by intercepting a Prescott f pass on Prescott's « yard line and ' sprinting to the G-yard line.
