Coach Dltdy called no names but : intimateti that with two or three exceptions every member of the so-called regulars stootl a chance to lie replaced unless :» change in play icsulted. The biggest tasks begetting the mentors this week is the matter Of perfecting a defense lo stop Howard Hughe?, perhaps the best riui- ;iiing back in the state now thnl .nussell Mosley has wound up his prep career, and 198-pound Harry 'Carter., tlie human battering ram. Both are seniors and < should bfl even better than last jear when they played prominent paits in the thrilling 33-21' uclory over jth'e Chicks. ' ' John Ed. James, Junior coach, <.was-. iri the stands when the Tigers tin ashed Byrd High of hrevoport, Ln, 20-0, Friday night and reported that the current edition of the Van Sickle Swingers is plenty big ami lough.

The forward wall will have a weight advantage over the Chick line Led by Hauy Donaldson, - right tackle who scales a mere 225 pounds, the Ti^er fonvaids average approximately 103 pounds. The Chicks pull about five pounds less pei man , In an effort to check the nilrl- dle-of-the-hne thrusls of Carter, .the Chick'leader-hns elevated Travis Bennett, 195-pound jowigstcr whose hands bear ,t marked resemblance in size to a couple of oversized hams, to light guard. Bennett has pi oven a defensive bulwark but has yet to show equal ability on the offense long John Paulk, also a 195-pounrter, was >, used at left guard Monday but yesterday was at blocking back.

Bill McKcchnle, manager cf the Reds, was just as unsatisfactory I had heard that he was a cold, emolknless, gimlet-eyed gambler ',sho v/ould risk anything for a victory, and I wanted to >know if that was right. 1 burst into his office, shook a cclii In my hand, and .said: "Call Ibis for a dollar, Bends or l.iils. )f you're a Rambler, prove it to me." "1 t:!d you to keep that door locked." McKcchnle said to his as- sistant-as'he rushed Into another room and banged the door. Maybe he's a gambler, maybe he isn't. I've no way of telling. I went oh. down lo the Held and sought out players. Paul Derringer, wiio will pitch for the Rsils today, was the first I fcund. Everyone is interested'in what Inning lib will get knocked out so I asked him. lie didn't even change his expression, but went right on pitching to his catcher. If he knows, he is keeping It to himself. Junior Thompson, the Reds young pitcher who will start the third game, gave me my first direct answer. On asking him ,if he didn't think he was too inexperienced and nervous to do much go:d against the Yankees,' lie looked me straight in the eye and said: "What business of yours is that, buddy?" Thnt's a ecod. straight answer, all right, but If you'll boil it down you'll find that jt doesn't contain an awful lot of baseball Infcrma- tlon. Everywhere'I went it was the same thing, with Gomez, Lombardl, DiMngglo, Frey, refusing to answer my straightforward . and sensible questlcns. Finally I decided upon actions, rather than' words. Hearing Uiat Red Rulflng had n sore pitching arm, I sneaked in/behind him and hit him on it.

GAMES— John Ed James, new coach of the Blylheville Junicr, has his worries and the season hasn't even started for him. He has found It extremely difficult to find opposition for his Papooses. To date only four have been scheduled, two with Joncsboro, the first two weeks hence, one with Fail-view of Memphis, and tlie other with the Newport Seconds. Outside of those his pleas have fallen on deaf cars. Coach James said he has fattened Postmaster Jim Farley's postal ser- ' vice, having wriitcn close to 25 letters seeking games. He plans to pen missies to Paragould and Marked Tree, the latest prcspecls.
