PAGE SIX BLYTHEVILLE. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Pine Bluff Can Use Letterman At Every Post Against Chicks By HARUY YOUNG (Pine Bluff Commercial Sports Editor) PINE BLUFF.—Whether the 1930 Pine RlnfY high school football team will bs able to make any headway through one of .the toughest scheduled in Zebra grid history, which includes nine Arkansas Conference games, will depend ou the performance of the 14 lotternicn and 24 reserves who form the nucleus of the squad Coaches Allen Dimaway and Jefl' Sherman have Ijaen drilling since Sept. 1. There are veterans returning at. every position in the line and five backs will again see acllon tills year, leaving the question mark of the squad m the reserve strength. Three rangy ends, W. s. Lafitte, mcmbjr of last year's nil-slate ieam, Jesse Stalhvoth untl Jarrel Bush, will ftgaia fortify the Zebr.i wing positions. Eddie Atkinson and T. D. Davis are expected to hold clown the guard berths in cnpablc style and Roy Ferguson and Ar- llmr Davis will, be back nt the tackle berths, while Virgil Woodoll and Jim Kennedy, will be called on again for duty at the center position this year. llutson T>viii§ Kettirn Hie Hutson twins, Raymond and Robert, brothers of Don Hulson, former All-American end nl Alabama ami now with the Grjen Buy Packers, nrc ret\irn!i!g to '.he Zebra Uackfield and will likely spark the Red and White's offensive. Other backficld leUcrmen are Robert Wenzel, Tommy Leftwlch and Virgil Meroney. Both Meroney and Leftwich developed rap"idly as first year men in 1938 and will also be heavily counted ou. Reserve Strength Doubtful Reserve strength at tackle and guard is unknown nntl will probably, be one of the weakest links of the team. It is possible thnt Kennedy may be shifted to tackle as Clint Halstead, all-state junior center last year, is being 'geared for senior competition. Halstead is a. scrapping 170 pounder. Fuzzy Watts and Sam Holden, two of last season's reserve guards, may oflen enter the Zebra line-up along with Riisscl) Lambert, giant reserve tackle. The, power of the reserve backs Kill rest with Jack Bodie, Fats Galloway, McEntyre, Mclvin Jov- dan, Alex LefUvich, Charlie Cbw- ers,, Tommy Prine and Clihrles Hart. Bodle, Galloway and McEntyre were 1933 junior letter- meii. Galloway being placed at : fullback on 'the all-state Junior squad. Of the three Galloway \vill likely see the most action. He tips the beam nl 180 and should develop a lot of drive. Hart entered a Zebra uniform [or the first time during spring practice and even though he lacks previous grid experience has .-shown considerable premise. " - The Zebras will again luive one of the lightest teams in the conference, the line averaging around 165 pounds and .the bnckfield from 150 to 155, and will be forced to vise Uie • Dunaway cunning 'considerable extent.

Fans recall that Dunaway practiced his squad in secret before both the Blytheville and Little Rock games last year and in both instances emerged with several new plays that baffled the heavier Tiger and Chick teams. Dunaway declined to comment on what the Zebras would do in their practice sessions. "The only thing 111 say about the team is that they had. a fair workout yesterday," he said. f> I will say, however, that fans who come out to sec the team , .practice yesterday fount! the stadium gates locked.

Playing Ills cards shrewdly, Dea-' con Bill McKcchnte crossed up cv- ' c-ryone yesterday by keeping Walters! on the bench for one mere day's ! rest before shootln» him at the j Cardinals. Even without Walters, the Reds broke even in yesterday's doubleheader before a paid er;wd lit :M,l'J4 and maintained their V. : i game lead. Gambling on Gene Thompson in yesterday's opener, McKechnic carried off a 3-1 victory nnd Ihus gave Walters three days of rest Instead cf two.

He has pitched twice ngalnst the Reds, winning. 4-0, on Sept. 4 and Using, 7-5, on Aug. 20. Wallers will go after victory No. 20. He K-BS won six straight and lias beaten the Cardinals four out of five limes. Tlie Reds' plot to win both gnmc.s and cinch the pennant yesterday was spoiled by rookie Morton Cooper, who many experts cltiim has the fastest ball in the Nalicnol league.
