FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1951 BLYTHEVTLWE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Chicks to Open Grid Season Tonight PAGE SVTSH Tribe Is Favored In Curtain Raiser . Mosleymen Expected £ To Use Strong Aerial Attack on Indians The curtain goes up on the 1951 high school football season in Blytheville tonight when the Chicks attempt to show off their talents to the visiting Indians from Marked Tree High School at Haley Field. Game time is 8 p.m. The Chicks, with one of the smallest squads in the history of the school — 24 players — will be in top physical condition for the opening tiff and will be favored to breeze by the Class A- team from Poinsett County. Coach Russ Mosley put the finishing touches on his three week pre-season training period last night with a dress rehearsal workout under the Haley Field lights, after which he dismissed his squad until game time tonight. Marked Tree opened its season last weekend with a 27-6 loss to a good Bruce, Miss., eleven but Coach Motley isn't taking anything for granted. A bit pessimistic over the greenness of his squad, he has drilled his team hard all week for the Indian engagement. J^ Polish Pass Attack ^The Chicks spent considerable time this ^veek in working on their passing attack indicating that Mosley expects to strike quick .at the invading Indians by taking advantage of the brilliant throwing arm of Co-Captain Mel Hay. The Indians, although hurt badly by graduation and hampered by in- j experience, looked good at times against the bigger Bruce team last week, appearing to be a lat« starting team. Marked Tree employs the T formation and has a'better than fair passing attack with quarterback Bill Jennings doing the tossing. • In tonight's game, the Chicks will be seeking their nth consecutive victory. They haven't lost a football game since Stnackover defeated them in the state championship playoffs in 1949. Last year they ran through a 15-game schedule .without a loss or tie.
