V Rebs Sell-Out Crowd To See State and Ole Miss Vie For Southeastern Crown . UNIVERSITY, Nor. 23. An Tent of classic Importance takes . place November 29 at Oxford, for lt'a the University of Mississippi vs. Mississippi State college on that date for the charnnionship of the IT Southeastern conference. "Dem pushovers from the Magno- - lia State, among: the swankier ele- ' ment of the league for the past three seasons, at present are the only unbeaten members of the Big -12. and nary a rival member of the - clan do a thing; about their back- ' ' yard quarrel and their claim to the Southeastern crown. It's never been that way before despite the recent rise in prominence of the Johnny Rebs and the Maroons, but It la to be that way Saturday for the first time since the conference was formed some eight years ago. and before a sellout crowd of 25,000. In Its current record, Ole Hiss sot itself tied by a Georgia Bulldog, ; when the Bulldog: was at top - strength, then- unraveled Its H-boys and little Jackie Flack with the help of a spirited forward wall and rolled over the Tulane Green Wave. I. S. U. almost tossed a monkey wrench Into the machinery, but a 13-12 verdict resulted in the .Rebels final SEC clash before m constant Jackson Phone 2-2551 HERE'S THE SECRET rTTHTT Trim TTTRn 1 JtlJtLIJK. SUCKER. HERE IS WHY THE POWER TRUST in New York (Electric Bond & Share Company) want our electric franchise three years in advance: On November 13, 1941, The Tennessee Val ley Authority (TVA) Announced: "We have added wort than a half million (500,000) Kilowatts f renerattar capacity, doubling the electric power resources existing In the TVA area In 1933. Another million (1,000,000) kilowatts of eapaclty Ut now under construction, of which a half million (500,000) will be placed In operation In the next 18 months. The TVA Is now generating power at a rate In excess of six bnilon (6.000.000,000) kllowatt-honrs per year and ranks among the largest power producers in the country." We beliere the National Defense Emergency will be over within three (3) years and, If so, these billions of surplus TVA kilowatt-hours of electric power will be available to Jackson at rery low rates. DON'T BE MISLED The Power Trust Is trying to tie your hands for 25 years so yon cannot take advantage of this cheap TVA power when the National Defense Emergency is orer. Legally, the Franchise Is non-exclusive, but when yon grant the Power Trust a Franchise, you will never get any, other company to come here and make the Investment necessary to compete with them. DON'T BE MISLED The so called $300,000 sub-station Is being built to serve the United States Ordnance Plant at Flora, for which the Power Trust will receive a huge profit. The Citizens of Jackson are already burdened with high electric rrnle. . DON'T BE THEIR SUCKER and give them the right to collect $500,000.00 additional per year from the citizens of Jackson for their masters, (Electric Bond and Share Company) In Wall Street.. Vote against these franchises and give Jackson the benefit of cheap electric power when th? National Emergency is orer.

In between times, Ole Miss lost 6-16 to Georgetown In the opening game of the season, then moved on to down Southwestern 27-0; Holy Cross, 21-0; and Marquette in the mud at 12-6. State fixed, Union at 56-0, beat Southwestern 20-6, and met its lone defeat last weekend 0-16 to Duquesne. The game will be the 39th between the two Mississippi schools.

The Rebles' leading candidate for Ail-American honors, little Junie Hovious, ran 56-yard for one touchdown, rammed off guard two yards for another and punted a soggy football with magic ability as he led the Rebels to the second-best clean-cut truimph that has been scored over the stubborn Porkers this season. Only Texas has whipped the Arkansas as bad as the Rebs did today, with the miserable ground conditions and a game-long steady rain as an added obstacle. Ole Miss showed Bobby Yandell as a wingback, replacing the in. Jured Ray Terrell, and the Madison lad ran 79 yards for the third Ole Miss touchdown on a play from scrimmage in the fourth period when the mud was practically knee deep with a heavy layer of casual water on top of that. The Rebels had one drive stopp-ed on the three-yard line as Merle Hapes was knocked out and fumbled the ball. He was removed from the game and did not return. Hapes was later reported not seriously hurt. - First Quarter Arkansas kicked off to Thorsey Who was downed on the Rebel 30 in the muddy going. Failing to gain the Rebs punted and the Porkers punted back on third down, get-ting a 10-yard gain on the first exchange. The process of trading punts was continued as the rain fell harder than the barks were running, and this time Meredith Jones of Arkansas got it down to the Rebel 8. On the subsequent nauc, me forKer punter's effort rolled dead on the Mississippi 3, keeping: the Rebs in hot water, but with Hovious and Hapes courageously kicking out behind a stout protective line. When Meredith's next boot went into the end-zone, Ole Miss drew a breathing space and from his 20, Hapes boot-edf tr2ngly 11110 Arkansas territory with Thorsey covering a Porker fumble at their 42. They traded punts again, Hovious booting out of bounds at the Arkansas seven to ?5Ltn.t 1ta5e for Worker return boot that Junie snatched at the Arkansa 43 and carried all the way for a touchdown, his try for extra point was missed Just a few plays before the period closed. . Second Quarter ,3roulh the drying rain, the punt exchanging was resumed with Ole Miss keeping Arkansas In much the same kind of a hole as the Rebels had suffered in during the first period. With Hapes' pow-crful plunging picking up the yard, age, the Mississippians gathered momentum for a drive that ended with Hapes fumble on the three-yard line as he was knocked out and had to be assisted from the field, not to return during tha game. Arkansas promptly kicked the ball out of danger and a few plays later recovered an Ole Mtss fumble near midfield and the sec-saw punt trades were continued until the half, with Arkansas trying desperately to tie the score on take-a-chance passes. Third Quarter Ole Miss engineered a first down right after the kickoff before ev-erybody became entirely mud-covered once more, but the offense bogged down Just inside the Arkansas half of the field and Hovious punted over the Porker goal. After a couple of kick exchanges, Arkansas got going and made a SUNDAY 45 Choice Soups or Tomato Juice Cocktail Choice Fried Chicken Broiled Steak1 Grilled Ham Steak Roast Beef or Pork Tenderloin TroutTartar Sahce Creamed Potatoes Vegetable Salad Dessert Coffee, Tca; Milk Hot Rolls, Butter Karo Pecan Pie .......10c, Lemon Chiffon Pie ...5c airuraay couple of moves of the stakes up ta near midfield where Ole Miss held and forced a punt. From his 36. Hovious and mates could not gain but Junie punted strongly to the Arkansas 11-yard line on the fly, with the ball skidding to a stop on the Porker two-yard marker. Arkansas succeeded . in getting it out to the 37, but Ole Miss charged down into scoring position Just be fore the quarter came to a close. Fourth Quarter The Arkansas chocked the wheels of the Rebel machine at the Porker seven yard line and took the ball on downs, but on their first scrimmage attempt, Arkansas fumbled and Co-Captain Wobble Davidson recovered lor Ole Miss on the 8. Yandell and Hovious drove it to the goal's very doorstep, and Hovious took it over for the second touchdown. Acaln it was much too muddy and slippery business to accomplish a place men! kick. Arkansas received and tried one pass and a line play before punting to set up another exchange. A few plays later with Ole Miss on its own 21, Dobby Yandell took a reverse from Hovious and ran 19 yards for a third Ole Miss touchdown. On the extra point, the pass from center was fumbled and the Rebs had no chance at conversion. Arkansas received and doggedly tried to go forward, and with Ole Miss playing a four-man line at times to defend, against passes, the Porkers succeeded in running for short gains into Mississippi territory Just before the game ended.
