"Officials announced last night*-— '• .— that only a few reserved seats in the extreme sections of the stadium 'were available and they were expected 'gobbled up long before the referee blows the first blast; from his whistle "to set the game ,in motion.'The demands for general admission tickets have been .so unusually heavy that it is quite likely that the S. R, O. sign will be hoisted ere the zero hour. - .' Jonesboro Corning: Strong' . iJonesboro is coming over lock stock and barrel. Sensing a possible upset for their Hurricane, something they haven't been able to -crow'about for six long years, they are going to drag in the sidewalks early, hop into their gas buggies and strike out for Mississippi County with Haley Field as their main objective. Efforts are being made to charter a special train for the students and the crack Jonesboro band which will add much color to the contest. Pans in almost every nook and corner are expected to be on hand for the Northeast Arkansas classic and the No. I game of the-state. In the meantime.the rival camps are going forward with their tram- ing chores. The heavy duty was put away with long scrimmages yesterday, and tapering begun. Barring last minute injuries by accidents, - both teams likely • wil 1 be in the proverbial "pink:" The return of Mayfield "Sonny" Lloyd, battering fullback who missed the Hope game because of a twisted foot, enabled Head Coach : Joe Dildy to'discard the Chick infirmary list, while Dick Wiles, senior guard and a good one, too, is the lone ailing Hurricaneer.
