PAGE EIGHT ILYTIIEVILLE (ARK.) POUBIER NK\£5 THURSDAY, SKPTKiMlJKK 7, 1[M<1 Tackles Needed To Bolster Line •_. Green Would,Welcome ^^Triple-Threat Back; * Pogue Tries New Job ."WANTED AT ONCE — two big, hijsky, high school boys, 175-20p pounds,'play tackle. Rough ones .preferred. Experience desired though not ^necessarily. demanded.' Also need at least'one boy who can run, kick-and pass with football. Experience' required' Hours reasonable but kinda rough promised. No panty waists need repoit We'mean business. Sec Arvil Green, Coach Blytheville High School Chlcknsaws either at school or at Fair' Grounds each afternoon. Such Is the S.O.S. flashed yesterday by Chief Green as he began fo'Increase the tempo of the train- Ing sessions in preparation for Ihe heason opener with Carulhcisvillc two weeks from' tomorrow. ,;.And. the need for tackles and n triple threat back Is not just synthetic but real if Ihe tribe expects to get' anywhere In the Arkansas High School grid conference. The tackle problem became acute when Harvey "Cotton" Pogue, the only experienced tackle In the squad, was given a trial in the backflcld effort to partially plug a gaping crater created by the loss of three regulars, Gordon Welshons, Mon- foe Besharse and Hay Gill. Kernper Is Delayed , \.Tlic situation Is enhanced further when Eugene Kemper, strapping 105 pounder, tailed to report oh time, However, he Is due to come into the fold In a couple of weeks but his progress will be delayed.' •-With HID problem 'outstanding Gerald "Corky" Blumeyer, ordliia?- ilj a center, has been switched over a couple of pegs and appears to be very much at homo there. Weighing'. 180 pounds, "Corky" may be the answer/to one half of the'enigma, gut. hejlhave to work. vj.Just.who, w lll get the other starling : berth is also a disputed riddle. B?-p."(Junior) Stone, 165, younger brother of Elmer Slone, 1912 Chick center, nnd captain, Is likely candidate. Then there Is Eugene Cunningham, WO pounds, and Kenneth . Byrd, strlngbean youth and brother^ pf Jackie Byrd, the boxer. Don Besharse, soil of Herman Beshnrse, a .former Chick star back, Is given a" : char/ce, along with' Charles R. Gil!,' Austin Jenkins, 'and Jimmy glrickland, ' • , ;^,-,.... Problem In Baekflcld. ?:Coach'-Grecn has -his work all put-out.for him in ih'c backfleld, •too, , Replacing 'Gill, Besharse, Welshons, and John Bruce Wilson, who' has been returned to end, Is not.golhir to be solved tla Hudlrif, though ho might help If we were b'ack'.aml had his mnglc hat. Aside from Pogue," arid possibly " Jim Smart,'-no' one had n job .clincher!. ln> fact,'the, coach has cri'ipha'sizcd 'that nil must bear down and earn the. spots, even Pogue and Smart, to say nothing of Stan Hood,'Chester. Caldwell, Davy Sylvester who BDpear to have the Inside track, vlhen,'there la the problem of yho. will be Ihe first string snap- pcrBack to further plague the.local mentor and cnuse him to lose much sleep. Only two, James Vest, who opened the 1943 season then withdrew because of injuries, and Jerome Grey, nre listed. There has been some :ta!k of converting Byrd, also Jimmy Stafford, who has had some experience there. It will take time out thai solution, too. '*.. Only! four positions nre not due • to ..cause .many furrows to come onto-the coach's brow. The ends »nd' guards with the dependable J. u. Johnson, who should be better 'his -year,-back, and Wilson as his running mate, the starting termi- nals'should be laken care of. s"^ .'J.Fonr Guards Kctiirn ,The four guards from last scn- wli 'vl ,,°? hand - They'are Joe Neil Rate Iff, a bruising, rough boy, Jimmy Stafford, with plenty of finesse and polish, and the half- pints, Billy Koonce and Charles «o v Lutes, who are due to give thclMargcr, taller foes a ret.1 run i gain those first For Caruthersville Contest DOPE BUCKET BX j. r. iticirr.r nKscttveu BOUQUETS uuic nock nigh Bcn B ai and suc- Wlth the grand ol' American ccssful sporting good denier before gmnc of baseball moving Into the entering (h c service, home slrctcir and soon'lrf b'cusurp- ''TRIBUTE TO TKICifrKIt" ed by father Football as< (he .No, 11 Another orchid, a whole bunch of sport in current public lavor, may 'cm, Harold 'Trigger" Wall we take time out to toss n couple and his Manila independents, own- ol well earned bouquets .to a pair ed and sponsored by E.

But the CuicH- tcstants from eight ailtercnt stales.' nals roared bnck to avenge that Returning officers who witnessed loss ( >y ">c same count 11 week Int' • ~ 'r. "Trigger" Is no stranger In these iiarts. For several years he hns wen outstanding In semi-pro Imse- ball and softbikll circles'. Back when we had Hie elly Softball, league here Harold caught (or und mnn- ngcd Joe Applctamn's Fnmous'en- try and was one of the leaders. I(nro(d, who knows Ills Ijn.seb.ill and cnh spot n diamond prospect when he sec.? one, believes he has somo ycms in the rough among his youngsters, ivho averaged nroinid 17 years. .Most oiitstniirtfng are Raymond Scott, lefthander who has not lost n gnme this year; Wnyne Wallace, 15-year old first baseman who stands-Ibrco Indies over . the six- fool scale and has a swat' mark of .363 In IS games; and Center Fielder Guy Whitney, a 17-year old slar with a .305 average. "Doc" Prothro, lake notice! the semi-finals and flnnls at Maxwell Field, Ala., last week end said the Filers were Ihe best of the four surviving teams; that they weren't even pressed to defeat Gunter Field, Ala., the favorite, and Shaw Field, S. C., for the ting. While the entire team played exceptionally well and all arc entitled to tile praise and .the spoils, u choice orchid belongs to Mel Parlell, the slim, brilliant young south- jaw who hurled' shiiloiils in Die wo blue chip contests on consec- iltve days. The clever New Orlchs youngster ind everything during .thole games and never was at any stage in dan- er. Hc granted Gunter Field only hrce scratch hits and limited Shaw Field to : one less, which la pretty fair chunking In any league. PAKNEI.I. PITCHES AM, Parnell pitched all five of the championship games and allowed lust three runs; Smyrna B-l, Lock-" bourne 2-1, and .Greenville 0-1; Gunter 9-0, and Sliaw Field 5-0. So lls no wonder that Jimmy 1 Bratcn, the e-Cardlnal captain' and 1 second baseman, said Uiat Mnna- ;or.Billy Southwortli of the Cnrrii-' iinls would be willing to give n mortgage on Sportsman Park to inve him this year. No douht the Red Sax, who own him, will beckon with open arms after.the war Is over. Mack McWhorlcr, the fanny fielding and hard hitting first bnseman who Is improving with cver v game and seems, headed, for. successful pro career,' was another spark in the winning drive, as was Walt Bltilek, the peppery, hard working catcher, not-, to ineiit'lo" Max Vickcrs, shortstop; Bert Dares, who subbed for Fred Swim al second; Leonard Travls.-.thlrd; Frank Spoul, Dnnny LaGrulla and'Stan Wlotko, ithc outfielders. The marvelous triumph wns n special tribute to Staff Sergt. Robert Tubbs, serving his second sen- son at the helm.of: the Filers..'.Bc'- sct with furlough worries and other troubles Bob hns handled the team excellently and richly deserves much credit in the 31 victories out of 43 games played tills year.

The return of these 'five players should make Nnvy the outstanding team in the East, if not In Ihe entire country. Even before this development Navy was figured us one of the powers of Ihe gridiron.
