At West Memphis asaws Chick WantAWin By Frank Ellis ' Courier News Sports Writer - "We'd like to win that ball game and get ourselves back on a winning streak, especially with Little Rock Horace Mann coming in here Friday night but I guess right now. we had better think only about West •Memphis." Coach Dwight Williams was the speaker at the Blytheville ( High School gymnasium as he' and assistant coach Jim Dixon .were only minutes away from leading the Chickasaws through -.&• practice session. -. Tonight at 6, the Chicks face .{he West Memphis Blue Devils :on the enemy court, and will be out to duplicate their season-opening win here in Blytheville. •On that occasion, Williams' •Ken won rather handily, 56-44. -; Williams, hewever, is quick to .point out he expects more trouble this time. "They'll have a better ball club than they had up here," •he staled, "their starters havej Bad a chance to get some more experience and we look for a tough game all the way." jV-The coach said he would make "one change in his starting lineup. Sophomore Tommy Tomp- Tdns will most likely replace Joe Ellis at center. Tompkins missed the North Little Rock loss due to an infected foot which handicapped him at the last hours before game-lime but is expected to have recovered by tap-off time tonight. * <f * Strong rebounding efforts by the Chickasaws grid quarterback apparently has earned him the starting berth. "I'll be moving Richard Brewer up to the varsity too, "Williams added, "in order to get a little more height in there. You can expect Brewer and Jimmy Moore to see action against the Blue Devils Jimmy is rapidly developing into a valuable sixth man and can be used equally well at guard or forward. He's one of the best ball-handlers we have," Williams concluded. Tonight's battle will be a prelude to Friday's clash with now fourth-ranked Horace Mann. Mann's latest outing resulted in a 54-44 loss to Little Rock Central, the state's top-ratec squad. Williams expects another struggle Friday but right now he is thinking only about tonight and those Blue Devils. Tickets Available Principal D. B.

Webster Named Rookie of Year NEW YORK-(NEA)—The nine coaches of the American Football League have made George Webster of the Houston Oilers their clear-cut choice as the 1967 Rookie of the Year. In a special poll conducted by NBA, Webster emerged with a majority of five votes. Dick Post, the pint-sized running back of the San Diego Chargers, was named by two. Others mentioned were Gene Upshaw, the impressive offensive guard of the Oakland Raiders, and the Miami battery of quarterback Bob Griese and split end Jack Clancy, who received a split vote. The most surprising aspect of the 1967 season in the AFL was the resurgence of the defensive platoon of the Houston Oilers. Last year, it gave up more points than any team in the league. This year, it catapulted the Oilers into the race for the Eastern Division title. From the day he reported to the Houston camp, Webster was the welding force of that defense as a corner linebacker. At 6-5 and 225 pounds, he lias both the range and the size to seal off the run and the pass. He has made an impact on the entire league. At Michigan State, he had been a two-time All-American as the "monster man" of the Spartans' backfield. Georga wasn't an unknown quantity in the collegiate draft. He was the fifth man picked (and, of course, the Oilers' first choice). He'll be around for a long time as an All-Pro, in addition to his initial rookie laurels. , G. L.
