PAGE SIX BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, JAN. 13, 1953 Fast Bay Must Stop Holland Childress to Top Tribe Tonight Can a short, speedy Bay loam stop Red Childress and Montroe Holland? That's the Question that will !>e answered tonight at Haley Field gymnasium when ;ay and Blythevillt's Chickasaws take the court nt 8 o'clock. Bay has the Chicks equalled or v . . ______ ttered In overall team speed and . .. _ . shooting ability. In their last meeting. Bh'thevillc'B height, rebounding and ball handling proved the difference as the Chicks went to nn 8-J-77 win In the 'finals of the Northeast Arkansas Invitational Basketball Tournament. And In that. one. Holland poured 40 points through the nets to set a new tournament record. Childress, Holland H.ul Control When Holland wasn't doing the scoring himself, he was passing off to Childress and the two tall Chicks Just about hud things their own ; way under the basket. However, they saw a 20-point Jjalttlme lead melt to a mere seven points by the end o! the emne. The Yellow Jackets can put (he ball through (roni any place on the court and when they are right, luck of height under the boards doesn't hurt them too badly, Other Threats However the Jackets might find trouble from another Quarter tonight. Friday against Humboldt, Tcnn., both Chlldress and Donald Gentry were Impressive with their shoot- ling. Chlldress hit for a C6 per cent av- rage trom the field and Gantry, although he shot only eight times, hit thr« of them, all beauties for a S6J average. Bay Is sparked by a 5-9 ball hawk In the person of Perry Ishell, who contributed to Blythcvllle's defeat. In the. district tournament last year In no small manner. Their other big threat is Underwood, a six-foot center who scored n against the Chicks at the Joncsj boro tournament. Only one game will be played tonight.

DAN RTJSSF.LL, Body Dcpt. PHILLIPS MOTOR COMPANY rhonc 1153 i tm t risi ***VT«J »>W^ME • Rajah Has Praise For Blackwell Deal By JOE KEICHLER NEW YORK, (AP) — Remember when Cincinnati traded the fircftt Ewell Blnckwcll to New York for cash, n .second rate pitcher and three bush leaguers last Atitfiisl? The Reds were accused of having sold the Yankees the American League pennant. That much maligned transaction will prove to be one of the most profitable, from n player standpoint, the Cincinnati cUib lias over ivinclc, n coord! HIT to Mfimij'or H ogees Mornsby, To the Rajah's way of thinking, the departure of filnckwcll brought three rookies who wi!l plfiy an Important prut In the Rc<ls' new scheme ot things. "Don't misumtcrstand me," fititd Hornsby, "I think Blnckwell will \vin from 10 to 15 gnincs lor the Yankees next season. AL Jcast, 1 hope So. BuL'Blncklc hnd outlived tils usefulness in Cincinnati. He needed n change of scenery. What makes me so enthusiastic about Lhe trndc Is the three minor league players we got for him. All three— outfielders Jl»i Greenprass, Dob Marquis nnd pitcher Ernie Nevel— were hantlpicknd by me, 1 hail Marquis and Novel with me when : -managed Bcnumont in 1050 nnd f personally scouted Greongrass last June when he played nt Beaumont. L knew what they could do." Grecngrass became an immed- ale success when brought up to the Reds last September. The strapping 25-year-old Texan hit .309 In his short slay, but what impressed Rcdlcg officials was the way he powered the ball. In 18 grmies, big Jim drove in 24 vims nnd banged live homers, a sen- .sntiotifil slugging feat. In one threesome scries, he knocked in nine ol his team's 11,. runs, which included a grand slammer off Brook- yn's Johnny Rutherford. <>r:trffiti.s Speedy Hornsby is of the opinion Marquis Is the fastest thing ' on two feet. He believes the 28-yenr-old Oklnhomnn who batted only .24G at Kansas City last year, \vJJI make an ideal leruloff man. "Don't let that batting mark r ooj -yon," warned Hornsby. "He was leading the American Association until be broke his wrist. He never wns the same after he got back in the lineup. He's not i power hUtcr like Greengrnss but he's a good hitter who always gels a piece of the ball. And he's ns good a defensive ccntcrfleldcr as you'll find in the big leagues." Novel hud nn ordinary 7-G record at Knnsnft City but one of his .rkmiphs was a seven- inning no- ilttcr against Minneapolis. Hornsby counts on the 33-year old righthander as a relief male for Prank Smith. The best "new" pitcher on the Reds, however, ,1s Eddie Ernutt. who won 2fi games ntul lost sfx at Kansas City last year. He had a 21-5 record for the regular sea- while losing one In |ji c uiilc World Series. Erautt, 28. has had two previous (rials with Cincinnati.

Hog Failure By CAB.i, BELL UTTLE ROCK (AP) — You can't tell by looking at him that Sow den Wyatt is the driving football coach-he is. When hfc talks in his soft, drawling tones this handsome 36-year-old who has been elected to haul the Arkansas Kazorbacks out of t h e foot ball doldrums displays a pleasant, easy-going smile and almost girlish dimples. But his muscular 6-1 . 190 pound frame gives you the Idea he could hold his own In a scuffle. And he admits that he drives his gridmen. Hard Work "The only thing that will build spirit Is hard work," he says. "A hoy will have to want to play football to play for me." If Wyatt gets loose from the contract now binding him to Ihe University of Wyoming, Ihe Razor- foacks are going to work plenty hard In spring practice. He says he'll use that off-season drill period to "find out who \vants to play". Whether Wyalt can win in the Southwest Conference remains to be seen.
