PAGE SIX BUTTHEVJLLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Grid Spotlight Centers On Battle Here Friday Night Injuries May Keep Mosley Out Of Big Game With Zebras Ry J. P. FRIEND A wise sage once warned "changing horses in the middle of the stream." Hut Head Coach .foe Dil<ly may be forced to defy that nge-wom adage and alter the two- game starting' lineup.of liis Ijl.vlhovilte Chicks .ipaiiist llw touted Pine Bind' Zebras; tomorrow night. A. very big question mark looms •——over Norman "Monk" Mtsley ar.d I there is' ever}' possibility that he will not be able to be nt the beginning, and maybe not at all. "Monk" received a .painful leg bruise when kicked during a skirmish in the opening game and It hasn't re- sp:nde<i to treatment ns hoped. Then to complicate matters a boil developed on the oilier one inul the two have just about rendered the 151-pc-und left halfback "hors dc combat", lie Iwd the boll ImiccU the first part of tlie week ami has seen action. Ho.vell Ailey, 200-pound reserve tackle, Is another casually. The rough youngster, who created quite a stir by putting on a ra?.or blade eating "demonstration, turned up with n stone bruise en the ball of his right foot and had to undergo the knife. He was absent from drills yesterday but he likely will be okay by game time. In'Uic event Mosley will tie unable to go Friday night it will conflict witli Dildy's plans. The big chief revealed the first part of the week that he intended to expert-, merit with'a new uackficld combination this week, and if It was as successful as lie hoped, he would make a slight rimngo in the starting' secondary. 5!e wns anxious to see lioiv Eugene Hood, Mosley, Hugh "Tex" Harbert and S:nns r Lloyd w:rked together. That quartet would give three triple thvciU- ers, and effective ones, too. That would mean that Ho:d would be at blocking back, Monk at left, Hugli at right and Sonny at fullback. Willis Ford, who started nt the No. 4 slot in the first two games would be held In reserve for fullback and blo:king back duties. But with the youngest of the Mosley trio out of commission Harbert will be moved, over to left, with the other three at their old p:sts. The fine showing of Paul "Ducky" Blackwood, the hard driving Osceola boy, has tended to complicate things, to?. While perhaps no,t .the defensive tower of strength' that Ford ts. Founding Paul has actually outshone Willis when afforded the chance. His name' is definitely in the fullback pot, as is J:lin Fault's. Long John is available lor tackle,' blocking back duty nko. The tribal leader has not committed himself but is content t- lei lime help work out the problems. Ko changes are anticipated in the rfqrxard wall, Dildy said. He and. his first aide, Mitchell Best, have expressed satisfaction over the work' tf the first and second lines and 1 are-confident that the best combinations have been selected. All the boys, with tlie exception of Alley, are In tip top shape nnd rarin' to go:' The final pre-game workout is scheduled for this afternoon nrni orders have been given to hit the hay early for a full night's rest.

For instance, it is entirely possible Hint the championship race in the Arkansas High School Conference will be virtual)} 1 - decided within the next three weeks, nnd (lint Arknnsns's Southwest Conference title hopes may be rudely shattered come T. C. U. and the first week In October. The colleges arc a bit more fortunate—their "big" games come late in the campaign—but the current balance of power among the high schools points to tm early cle- tci initiation of their title dispute, while the success or failure of Ar- kruistis's season hinges to' a considerable extent on the outcome of the Horned Frog tilt. Size np the high school situation : Dlythevllle, Pine Bluir, Little Rock an! North Little Rock are generally considered the four toil teams In the Conference this fall. Hope, El Dorado and perhaps HU5sel)ville are rated the "dark horses.'" Fort Smllh Is given an outside chance. Now take a squint at lite schedule: Pine Bluff plays Blythevltle Friday .night-' ..;. \. .; Tliere goes one of - the clubs, barring a lie. If Pine Bluff wins, it will prolong the race into November, when the Zebras face the Tigers and tlic Wildcats. But BlyUicvllle, playing at home, undoubtedly will be the favorite. Then, If Blythcvllte wins, the Chicks must tackle Uttlc. Rock on October 0 in Blytheville. Meanwhile, North Little Reck Is tangling with Husscllvllle, and Hope Is battling E! Dorado this weekend: There go two' more title contenders off the. undefeated list. The Wildcat will be favored over "dark horse" Ru-v-ellvllle. but El Dorado and Hope appears a tossup. Then a week following. October 13. North Little Rock gees to El Dorado. Suppost El Dorado beats Hope. Blythcvllte teats Little Rock imcl North Little Re*;: teats El Dorado. That brings ycy rtj'nf. up to October 20, and a d;.-r.2.Jt. North Litile Reck «- Blylhfville tough. the at North Little Psjft. That game could K^ily be pay-off. If Blythcvllle can roll Piir: Bluff, Little Rock and North Ultl-i Rock In succession, .there's only Hope on evening the latter part of this week when fo:tbull teams representing the high schools of those two redoubtable cities will meet in con- Illct at UlytlievUlc. One go:d reason is that, man for man, Blytheville has the best team. The Chicks have the extra v«?iglit and experience in nearly every position that the Zebras just can't milte muster. That's what 20 leltcrmen do for you. And while the Zebras have been famous those last 30 years for their fight and scrap. y:u could lumlly sny the Chicks aren't the same way when they get in n tussle with the blgsholii from downslnte. Some fellows believe the Zebras will outsmart the Chicks. That, of course, Is not srmethlnj that can be measured up on paper like weight and experience and reserves. So It's one man's opinion against another's and mine Is that the Zebras will be no m:re smarter than the Chicks Friday night. Allen DmiRivny Is well schooled in the ways of high school football from his rcugh contacts with it for several years. But Joe Dlldy is no greenhorn. In fact, he's as smart as Uunaway nnd unless his boys are ignorant (tliey aren't of cairsc) lie'll instill as much trlcklncss in them as Diuinway -will in the Striped Mules. - - . That name, Striped Mules, Is a psychological factor In favor of Pine Bluff. Any team that cnn win year In and. year out and bear the jibes accompanying such a name—and still take pride in iu—must be one that is almrst undofcatablc. It stands to reason that -when you can tnke pride In Ihe cognomen, Striped Mules, there's something besides pride to it. Well, back to reality. Ulythevillc undefeated after Hint Blytheville- North LH-tle tober 20. Rock encounter, Oc- It's pretty near a safe bet that only one of (he four will boast .1 clean slate after that date. It's pretty near n safe bet that cnly one of the four will boast a Mean slate after that dale. Blytheville and North Little Rock arc hoeing the toughest row. In four succes.slve weeks, Blythc- ville meets Pine Blull, Little Reck, Paragould nnd North Little Rock.

The home town fans—every player's best girl nnd his family—will be right on the sideline!, 1 . 'Iliat counts a lot. It'll either make them better than they are normally—or it'll make them nervous and they'll fumble and pull boners. Blythcvllle tco is having a lough lime forgetting the game wllh Pine Bltiff last year. That Is ft strong point for them. It can't do the Zebras much good to remember Hint they are nbcul to piny the team they barely beat '1-6 the year before nnd then through three extra point tries. While the chicks on Ih'e other 'hand, will gain stimulus from thai fact-the very one that Is n cautious damper of the Zebra spirit. -Yes, somehow or other, it looks to me like the Chicks should win. At any rate, il will be a game that few-will want to miss—lenst cf all Ticket Deadline For Zebra Special Extended PINE BLUFF, Ark.. Sept. 28.— J. H.
