But last night, Parnell was even niore effectlVR. that he had been the previous day. Both hits garnered off him were infield singles and only 30 men faced him during the game.

Canny gained sweet revenge for a recent thumping by kayolng big Jack Moody in Ihc third and decisive fall, bringing to a close one of the most bruta] slugfest In local legion mat history. Reaching his peak in ring science and skill, Scrgt. Belkas - pulled a brilliant victory out of the lire by blasting cagy Roy Allen In sensational fashion to atone for a defeat some weeks ago. A house full of rabid fans, wh,o brayed the damp elements that peppered down all during the show, were trcalcd to a couple of sharp contrasting matches. True to advance expectations,; Canny ami Moody put on a slugging bee thai would have done justice to any heavyweight boxing brawl. 'Ihcy called on all their rougli tactics and exercised everyone of them In a torrid, brutal battering exhibition that saw both totally spent and all but out at the surprising finish.

"Wild Bill" had succumbed to the vise-like hold In the nltlal fall and appeared on the way out again when lie suddenly rmrlcd Moody ana!nst the ropes. As Jack rebounded nil! was waling with his murderous rlKht hand. It landed smack on the button and put out the lights for the bin boy. Canny wearily crawled over for the pin that spelled victory. And It was n good tiling his aim was good for Ciuiny nil but passed out afterwards. Moody combined his football tactics to soften Canny for the first fall. Hemming the Alabaman up In corner he launched a scries of shoulder blocks and (]«lckly switched to the deadly headlock for Ihc clincher hi 10 minutes. Returning rough anil double tough after the rest period, Camfl showed new vim and vigor as he pummelled Moody, So anxious was lie to Ret started Canny didn't even wait for the bell. Clamoring inlo ring at his coiner he made a dash for Moodv whose back was turned. Bill clipped him on the chin before Referee Mike Meroney could send him back to his corner and wait for the goic. .Apparently still Iccllng the ef- fecls of that sock Moody look an awful beating and finally yielded to a surf board and back stomping after eight frightful minutes. ISclkas At llcsl Belkas showed his finest form lo defeat Allen In anolhcr great match, acclaimed by Meroney 'who has seen many tip-lop ones as Ihe "greatest I have seen In'years". Working cautiously and with con- dcnce, the local Army Air Field nstructor and holder-of several •orlds weight lifting lilies, carried ic fljht lo his foe and came out n the long end of Ihc sensational :irec-fall malch. Tlie flnnle crime with such sud- enness that it nearly caught the eferec flatfooted. Catching Belkas >ff guard Allen had maneuvered ilm "Into Ihc dreaded pile driver which brought him Ihc second fall. Ic drove Chris against the mn l , c«d icgan another. But Chris was just i move ahead. He quickly sltnped mder and threw the bewildered ilrlngbean marvel over backwards.' Before Allen could recover from he shock of the, long fall Chris vas ntop with n half Nelson and . "ront crotch for Ihe fall. | Allen hastened his downfall hi ( ho first fall, He had rocked along ;ccond best with Chris in a beau- ;lfnl scientific duel when he .open- id UD with some rough stuff. He 'mind a willing partner and In less Lhaiv a minute was haltered out. Three body slams, followed by a body pin did the job in 12 minutes. , It was a sadder but wiser Allen during the second fall. Working slowly he kept on the defensive, watching for an opening. He got his big chance after five minutes, clumping on a powerful head scissor nnd bar arm. About five more punishing minutes he brought inlo piny the pile driver, followed by tlie body pin. Chicks To Play 10 Grid Games Six Conference Foes Listed On Schedule Of Blytheville High The Blythevillc High School Chickasaws will mnkc seven home ii])]iciiriincc, one agiilnsl traditional Jonesboro Golden Hurricane, during the 1914 football season, according to tlie schedule released toduy by school officials.

Well, my friends, thnl Ls a moot uesllon, one that can't be answer- d all In one breath. To be exact, likely will take several breaths, cccntuated by Father Time lilm- clf. The 1944 season wan't get under my until Friday, September 22, vhen Caruthcrsville Invades for he first time in many, many seasons, but Coach Arvll Green has <cen struck at least three body jlows that have hurt, and hurt iplciity. They stung most because hey were aimed at the Chicks' nosl vulnerable spots—Uie backficld. The first came several weeks ago when It was reixn'ted that Berry Alton (1 call him Hans, because of his tremendous hands, to Kay nothing of his oversized pedal cx- iremellcs) was going to enter Kcmper Military Academy. It was i touBli break, for tills youngster nppcaied to have all the natural i|imlUle.s for developing into a first rate star. Weighing lj>5 pounds Hud growing all the time, lie can ™, kick, nni, and tackle. And lat Is more, lie fairly lives football. He was one of the brightest. Miots of Spring training and Immediately was tagged by Coaches tirccn and "Pop" Mosley as a coiner. He is the younger brother of another Chick scrapper, Jimmy tTiiffy) Allen, now with the Jight !ng Marines on Tlnlnu. ANOTHKK BLOW STRUCK towel vitli over loss of these, together Captain Harold Thompson, , vh.i graduated, and Ray Gill, rcgu- nr halfback whose eligibility ran cut with years, let's take a look at what Is left. In the forward wall all will be >ack except Thompson. But that hin small Maroon line wasn't any loo strong last year, and could .tiind ionic bolstering, especially at tackle and end Returning leltcr- inen include Gerald Blomeyer, center; Joe Nell Ratcllff, Jimmy Stafford, Charles Roy Lutes and Billy Koontz, guards; Harvey (Cotton) Pogue, tackle; J. L. Johnson and Johnny Warren, who also doubled at tackle, ends. With an overstocked supply ot guards, Coach Green may shift Blomeyer, a stocky, well built lad, to Thompson's tackle ami move Stafford to the snapper slot, He also intends to return John Bruce Wilson, who [ullbnckcd in '43, to his regular end post. Thai plan would solve a lot of troubles and bolster the important front line defense, Presence of Pogiie in the line is certain to help. The sorrel! top shone brightly at tackle and • also at end, despite the fact that he had never played either before. And lie should be even better this season \vith the year's experience under his belt. He is a fine team nlaycr. 1 HACKS AUK NKKDKD A bright ray Is the return of Jim Smart, a ]00-|'ound swivel hipped jack who attended Stimnton (Va.) Military Academy last year and showed considerable promise. Jim may make the fans forget all about Jiesharse. Stan Hood and David Sylvester, who arc as alike as two peas in (he same pod, are the only backfield veteran holdovers, unless Wilson is counted. Hood is especially adept at blocking, while Sylvester developed nicely as a ball carrier. Two former Pappooses are count- on strongly. They arc Chester Caldwell, nephew of the great Hcr- schell Caldwell, and Billy Wayne Mcf'arlaml, a southpaw chunker. Young Caldwell made the coaches rcli their eyebrows during til pring drills and may earn a berth, IcFarland, who can kick the foot- all a country mile, may see plenty f action. There arc others on hand, in- luding Chester's younger brother, Dan, and Kenneth Byrd, (all brother of Broken Arrow (Jack) Byrd, and they look pretty good for beginners.

He was a defensive power and developed remarkable in the backflcld, although all lils''prcvlous experience was in ihc line. Following on the heels of this announcement came a third sickening tliud.

Carroll KKO News & Short When Buffaloes Stopped the Iron Horse ...TRAVELERS WERE PATIENT Remembering the hardships of the stagecoach and covered wagon days, travelers once looked upon the new woodburner trains as solid luxury . . . despite clicking smoke, bumpy roadbeds; no electric lights, no berths or dining cars . . . despite delays of hours on end when great herds of migrating buffaloes marooned them in the middle of an endless prairie. Today, if the train, plane or bus is late, if reservations are hard_to get or we can't squeeze into the dining car, we can still take comfort in the fact that America is moving at a pace that has astounded the world. When this war is won, the transportation facilities of our country will have hung up an incredible record for efficient movement of fighting men and freight—and civilians, too. Meanwhile, public opinion is agreed that we should not travel unless absolutely necessary and, if we must go, take inconveniences cheerfully and patiently—like good soldiers. . J.
