Especially was lie keen for the pigskin sport and missed 1 few—It any —home [jniiics of the Blythcvllle Chicks. . . . His No. 1 pel was baseball and its half-brother, Softball. ... In Ills younger days he played a lot of sandlot ball In and around his native Ynzao City, Miss., and must have been pretty good to have competed against the teams of his day, many of willed produced major leaguers. ...
