In the second game St. Louis had orie -'big Inning when homers by Johnny Hopjie, his second of the day, and Ray Ganders drove In four runs.

So, "lere is my chance to'make amends .n my feeble way. The cliap 1 have slighted Is James W. (Jimmy) Ahlf, who coached the Semlnoles through two great seasons, 1937 and 1938. Now an ensign in the U.

When he went lo the Indian wigwam to take over the reins he found a big job In front of him. Material not only <vas overlooked and not up to standard, but the spirit and morale of the fans and the kids themselves were at a mighty low ebb. GOES TO WORK The situation was such ns to discourage the average person; give him an excuse [Q can-y along In the same, lackadaisical pace. But not Jimmy. He came to coach football—and other sports—and he was determined to produce. Young, am bilious, not long out of college, ho realized this was a chance to make his first real start. If he could pro- due,, here then there was a chance to move up the coaching ladder. So, he rolled up his sleeves and went to work. To make a iong, interesting, thrilling stor v short Jimmy did the job. and how! He gained the confidence of the youngsters themselves to begin with. Next ctvmc the business men and loyal fans who had turned their eyes from their own stalwarts lo the Blythc- ville Chicks, who under Carney [-.asllc, were the [oust of the State and South. It didn't take much lo enlist their aid. In fact, they were Just waiting for someone to take over so they could help. That's the 1 spirit of Osceola. if (he truth were known, I feel certain those same fans wanted a good team of their own tp rlvnl the Chicks, which Is only natural.

Thanks to this grand job, Jimmy was offered the head coaching iob at licnton, a member of thc Arkansas High School Conference, ilc accepted and remained there Jiitll his enlistment In November, 1942. At lien ton he Is generally credited with (he development and ; x>]lsh!ng of J. P. Moore, rated as one of the greatest backs ever developed In the slate.
