COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, APRIL 28, 1950 Chick Track Team Set to Compete in District Th ree Meet Kytheville's junior and senior track learns and tile senior golf and tennis teams go to joncsboro Thursday to compete against other teams of District Three for the right to represent the district In the state trick and field meet in Little Rock next month. The District Three track and ten-* nis meets will be held at Arkansas State College with (lie golf tournament to be run off at the Jonesboro Country Club. The golf tournament will get things going with tee- off time set for 9 o'clock. The track meet probably will run into an all day affair with the senior A and B and the junior events to be held together this year. Fif- > teen to 20 senior and Junior teams .'are .expected lo lake part In the three-way meet. The Chicks, who . have been awarded (he District Three Class A crown for Ihe past three years without having to dress out a team, are expected lo finish out of the running Ihfs year with Jonesboro lisled as Ihe ll'-elv successor. Re-Instates Track The Hurricane re-instaled track this spring nfler a lay off of more than 10 years. But last weekend the Jonesboro Ihinclads won their first major meet by carrying off top honors In the Northeast Arkansas Invitational Meet at Arkansas State. Paragould Is exnectcrt lo furnish Jonesboro with the most opposition -with 'Leachvllle, Blythcvllle and ''Piggott picked to run behind in that order. In the B division, the defending champion Osceola team is expected to finish high again this year. The Seminoles showed up well In a number of events In the Northeast Arkansas meet while running against much larger squads, Jonesboro also is favored in the junior division with the Papooses expected to finish close to the top. The Whirlwind has entered several pre-dlstrlct meets and showed up well against strong competition. The Paps, on the other hand, re-Instated .track this, spring after a year's layoff but .looked good .in their only meet, a practice affair with Haytl last week. Four Contestants Allowed . However, a team does not have to win the district sweepstakes In order to send a representative to. the state -event. This year four: con- tesianta to an event will be allowed from each district so all that will be necessary for an athlete to go to the state meet is to place In the district. Heretofore/only the first and sec- : ond event winners in the district •were allowed to enter the stale meet. The;chicks win send E. B. Oe«. Jr., §hd Frank Wagner, Jr., into the folf .tournament. The same two competed in the district tourney last year and went on to Little Rock to represent Blytheville In the state meet. The Chicks' tennis team will not be chosen until later this week, probably tomorrow, when the school's elimination tournament to Mfect th« team, is compleled. A kangaroo can fight off a pack of hounds with a great claw on its hind foot. - fr.

Arkansas State and Arkansas Tech are so close behind that the result of one game could put first place In different hands. Teacher* has won four conference games and lost none, stale and Tech each has won five and lost one. That puts all three "even" In the games ahead and behind mcr- hod of figuring the standings. But Ihe Bears from Conway natural!) have tlie best winning percentage- a perfect one. State's Indians will pet a chance to take over the lead Friday whei they entertain Teachers at Jones boro. That's the only game of real "crucial" nature I libs week. Teachers knocker!
