And, unless t miss my guess, they will come 'n handy this year, too, . and 'gainst those very same teams and ?thcrs. I expect scores as close ;<s 'hat. ' * * * IMPRESSIVE—There are many Ine features of. the Chicks play. For one, the offense can be depended on to be adequate. With he touchdown twins, Sonny and 'jvfonk", clicking as they did, and thyy «re due to improve with every >amc, the locals can depend on much yardage. Then much help can be depended on- from Hugh -Tex" Harbert, as soon as he gets back Paul "Bucky" Blackwood, Willis Ford, John Paulk, Elliott Eaiiba and Henry Mtiery. Tlie fine showing of the second string line should have brought smiles lo Messrs. Diidy and Best. While lacking in offensive lech- .oique, the No. 2 group actually cutptayed the first stringers on the defense. That assertion is based on tlie fact that the Curly Wolves always did their most damage against the varsity forwards. In [act, they were in when the visitors carried the ball to the five, yard line. But the Chicks rose to (he occasion and showed :he$ could put out when they Irled. For in four attempts the Wolves lost 11 yards. ' -* * * BOUQUETS—It would be grossly unfair to overlook the fine work of the first string guards, Pat Chilmon and Raymond Bicker- stall, and Long John Paulk. Chilmon and Bickerstaff were as busy as beavers all evening.

If (heir showing is a sample of the work' they will do all season then the mentors can quit worrying about the guards, if they have been losing sleep. George "Bulled' PruiU and John "Tuffy" Cramer more than carried on, too. So, it loofe ns if Everett Craig won't be missed much after all. For (wo years Big chief Diidy has been trying to find n. spot for John Paulk. Standing well over the six foot mark and scaling in the near vicinity of 200 pounds' Paulk was tried first at tackle, then 10 -locking track, then back to liiie. Willj, the less of Harbert, which lecessitated the shifting of Ford o fullback, Paulk was substituted Irst at blocking back Friday night. Then Djldy.sent in Everett Cross- ow at blocking back and instructed Paulk to move into the No. 4 lot. Thc-ii the fun began. Seven imes the ball was given to Paulk. The result: n net gain of 57 flrds.

'Both are seniors. "Both are capable of making anybody's ball club," said Buddy. Well, after seeing them in action I am convinced that Coach Storey lidn't'under-estimate his .tirostars. Especially did .Baker, wearing the oig 70 shine. Seldom were the Chicks able to get him on the ground. Time after time lie speared plays. -1)31161-1115 clown interference and making the tackle. He speared passes from angles. He was perhaps the most outstanding flayer on the field. And he appeared lo be having, gobs of fun. Halsell didn't have much of a chance to show his wares against the big Chick line. But twice he broke loose for long gains and showed plenty of speed and drive. He was always dangerous, both as a runner and passer, and almost single handedly kept Prescott in the ball game. —THE- Firestone HIGHSPEED TIRE A real tire.
