Thc'rc were precious few practices that,he missed and he worked hard. . . Immediately after the sessions he hustled to his job at- Ernest Hnlscll's nus- tlc Inn. . . This went on for two full years, climaxed during his last season wjicn he was picked at a guard on one of the all-state football teams. Having proved himself as a man, as well as a football player, Everett was given a boost by some of the business men here, notably Clarence Wilson, a loyal Chick supporter, who arranged for him to attend Gordon Military College, a'a., on an athletic scholarship. After two successful years there he enrolled at the University of Arkansas and was all set for a great campaign with the Porkers when stricken with appendicitis just before the season opened. Before Everett -had a chance to perform with the Razorbacks, he enlisted in the service, and transferred lo the Paratroops. . . . But, due to a knee Injury suffered as a Chick, he was unable, lo stand the shock of the Jumps. ... He was placed In the infantry where he now serves. A letter came this week from him.
