Both affairs will be over the hour and H half time limit, two oest falls out of three deciding the issues. Goes After Win Making his second visit to Bly- thevlUe, Truesdale will go after Ills first victory here. .Joluinj "Swede" Carlin spoiled "TiiffyV debut two weeks ago by defeating him in a brilliantly fought match Fliers Defeat Greenville, 5-3, In Final Home Game Of Season The Blythevllle Army Air Field acrlflccd by Hcrl Dares and came Pliers, flashing the form that brought them the. • Eastern Flying Training Command championship, closed out the 1914 season In bril- lant fashion by defeating their irch-rlvnl Greenville (Miss) Filers, >-3, Saturday, to gnln an even weak In the two-game series. On Ihe losing end of the 7-3 score, Staff Sergeant Francis Iluth ratio a gallant comeback against the Mississlpplans by taming them with only eight scattered hits. He had to have help from Mel I'arncll, nee lefty, in Ihe ninth. I'arnell came to ills rescue with one away and two runners on base as results of base on balls. Before he could got properly warmed up, Mel walked Center Fielder Hcyclt. flllinu the bases, then chilled the wild exultation on (lie visitors' bench by fanning Wilson and Westby, fourth and fifth hitters In the Greenville lineup, wasting bul one pitch. Both went down vainly swinging the darling curve ball that has won him 'nation-wide fame. Until ritche.i Well Huth pitched steadily, if not brilliantly at times, and deserved the well earned victory, despite the ftict tlutt Ills tittcliitic GiJfKJtit'dt John McCormlck, who Is propertj American League, allowed three n on LH Onitta's double Into short eft field. Starnes made n desperate attempt, to make a lair catch of the ow liner, got Ills hands on the ball ' bul couldn't hold It as he prowled on the turf. Only 12 batters faced McCormlck he remaining four Innings, though wo gained base. Sprnull walked In the fifth but perished trying to steal, McVVhorler was safe on Culen's fumble and went down on another plllfcr stunt. Short made the price catch of the "nst game when he .snared Sproull's ilgh liner with a beautiful one :iandC(i catch in the 8th. ft was similar to the grab that Rogers made Friday, also on a slam i>y the redheaded outfielder.

Koonce nnd Luieii are bigger mid tougher Hum last year and are certain to sec plenty ol action, If not share Ihc .tailing assignments with their taller, heavier competitors. Then there Is Hobby Dean, son of T. P. (Doc) Dean to be reckoned with. Lack of experience luirls his chances for breaking In the first string. With James Vest out ot the center picture, via scholastic difficulties, and leaving only inexperienced Jerome Grey, the Chick Chieftain have to draw on one of his guards, probably Stafford, to fill the gap. Jimmy has participated In several games at siiiippeibuck mid is very nuich at home there. Tall, rangy, active on his feet, and a fairly good lacklcr, he Is Ihe idei'.l ty|)t center. Byrd played center when n Junior and may get a trial, cspe- durlng tin the verge of triumph, aftei dominating the deciding fall most of the way, the champion leaped into a low blow and was counted out by Referee Mtkc Meroney who failed to see the' unintended foul. Outweighed at least 25 pounds, Truesdale was magnificent even against the tremendous weight odds. He .carried the more experienced Swede at a terrific pace and showed the fans some brand new ring tricks. Most of the time he stuck to ' UiD scientific bul matched blow for blow when Carlin suddenly switched to the rock and sock. The stars were so busy watching (he other they had little time left to trade blows. Mickey comes highly recommended from St. Louis area where he has been campaigning. He is described- as a fast, smooth working skilled grappler. He has an impressive ring record and should be qiiltc a-match for the Mexicai champion, in the opinion of Promoter Mike Meroney. Mickey Shows Courage Local fans got & good look at hi: intestinal fortitude and pimchlni ability several weeks ngo and wcr Impressed. Called in to pinch hi for Promoter Meroney as referee Mickey showed his courage ngains Bill Canny, who wns one of 111 principals of the card. The young ster waded right into the big boj when they wouldn't untangle as he were their size, instead of soin less hits' The tall local rlghthand- r was in serious trouble only once ic second when the Misslssipp rmen scored their three runs.

Smart is the only triple threat back and must be considered. Pogue, the converted lines- uiiin, has been given the fullb.'ick job and told he can have it as long as he can keep ahead of the others. Hood is given preference at blocking back. With the shortage of experienced tackles Coach Green may ! forced to gamble with a limited ackfield 111 order to keep oppos- iil! linesmen out of 11.

Walnut • .,..., Phone 678 Blyiheville, Ark Here's why we can't furnish service ...even though a telephone is on the premises That is hard to understand, isn't it? But, you sec, telephone calls do not flow from a main Co which you can be tapped at will. Telephone service doesn't turn on •with a switch or ignite from a pilot llamc. Each telephone must have its pair of wires running to a telephone office. And each office must have Ions of intricate equipment to set up connections between thousands of pairs of such wires. Each telephone call is a tailor-made, two-way item. Wartime demand for months has kept the telephone system here working beyond its engineered capacity. War needs arc taking the entire output of the great Western Electric factories that could otherwise supply equipment for more telephones. Meanwhile, so many people here want telephone service that we arc not able to care for them all. Many have been wailing a long while; So, although it's true that a telephone may be lefc in place for several thys after a customer moves out, almost always ic is cut off at once from the central office. Its ohle pnirs and switchboard conncclions are assigned immediately for war essential service or to whoever has txf.o waiting longest. The clay when telephone factories once more can nun out equipment for peaceful uses will be a great day- Then we can build to take care of all who are waiting. Then we can restore, too, the spare "margins" of "lant essential to a flexible telephone system, able to give you service when and where you want it.
