BLYTI1EVILLE (AKK,), COUIJ1EK NEWS WEDNESDAY, SKPTlCMBKIl 27,10-M Fair Racing Program Ib Open Tomorrow / , " — _ - -i.-.—I, —_. — — _ „ ._ • iMi, Stables From r* i Illinois Here t Fairgoers Promised ~' Classy Competition In Running Races *.Sonie of the finest running horses' in this-sect ion of the country will go to (he post during the four-day racing program feature of tlie Mlssisslppf'Counly Fair, stiii'tr ( Jng lomoirow and continuing through Sunday, according to Speed Superintendent George Gray. Starting his ninth consecutive county fair of the current season, the veteran Vienna, 111,, horseman <ind fair owner said he expected the greatest running races in history of the local annual event. ""During my association with the various horsemen at tlie fairs in friy native Illinois," said Mr. Gray. "I ha\e succeeded in getting them fo bring their horses lo Blytheville lor the great Mississippi County Pair which ranks with llie host In trie nation. ' "Already on hand with a day yet to go, there are more thi\n Iwlcc as many horses fls we had entered last year. I have seen practically all of them run this year, and believe me, they are the finest collection ever to assemble at one single racing program." Most, of tlie entered horses nre from'••Illinois'and have been keeping in form and condition by suc- »cesslve fair events, according to the visiting horse owners. Bay Has Record While the class Is unusually high and many, gc.od horses are certain to'be entered, those In Ihc know hold Bennett's Plain, a big bay horse with a long stride, high In their esteem and consider him the horse to beat In the feature MIs- Hsslppl county Derby which will bring ,the .program lo n close Sunday afternoon. .Owned ' by Ed Tcague. district circulation manager of the Evans- yllle. (Hid) Courier-Press, Bennet's Plain already lias won seven Dcrbys In the Illinois Fair circuit and Is certain to 1 bo among the favorites. .Another high ranking entry is 'Joe Fisher, big gray stallion, owned by Dude^Lcfler of Mt.

Basis of this bold statement omcs from Head Coach Arvtl Green of Ihe Chicks. • The tribal mentor was not at all pleased with Ihe showing ot his charges during the 19-0 detail nt the bands of the Caruthersvillc Tigers and Intends to do something about It. To be exact, lie lias done something about 11 lliis week. Here nre sotucj of the things he jolted down In'his notebook for rehearsal this week: 1. lilocklng. 2. Tackling. 3. Pass defense. 4. Forward passes. 6. Down- field blocking 0. IJne <lefense. 7. Offense. 8. Signal calling. Summing up (lie various weaknesses the Chick clileftnln decided Ihe whole thing needed hnincdialc attention and slnrlcd in bright iind early Monday afternoon hi an effort to eliminate at least .some of tlie major faults that cropped out during the game '• Injuries I'l.iKUe Tribe The tribe is plagued wilh Injuries that may rob them of several so-called regulars. Harvey (Cotton) I'ogub, the converted lacklc, who turned In a great defensive gume ol fullback until he knocked a shoulder down late In the first half, Is still on tlie ailing list and may not i tomorrow night, be ready for action Ihls week. Jimmy Stafford, another defensive lower of strength, has n pulled muscle In his side nnd may not be in shape for the Tiger invasion. Joe "Neil Ratcliff, who looked pretty fah at times at Ills new licrlli at tackle, hasn't been able lo report nt all this week due to « siege of chills. Even It he does'gcl back he isn't expected, to l«! up to par. On the bright side of the ledger is the return of Eugene Kcmpcr, the 160-pound youngster who Is counted on lo piny a lot of Inckle. Eugene has been busy working nil summer nnd while he appears to be hi fine physical trim, he llfeeiy won't be able to step right In without some conditioning. To add lo his discomfort, he fell during n bowl- knee. It the plays arc rehearsed and weaknesses pointed out for correction. Pass and Hi rowing, and defense against llie overhead game also come In for a big share of the dally drills Ihls week. Only one pass put of six was completed against Carulhcrsville, four being Intercepted. Each of those snagged by llic enemy was heaved almost dlrccllv nt 'the imcrccptor, far out of lire reach of Die Intended receiver. The backs were none too alert against the flying missies but should be much stronger In this department after this week. Have Pass Foundation With such lall ends as J. L. Johnson, John Bruce Wilson, Ben Lancashire and Joe Ferguson, all crack bnskctecrs and able receivers, Ihe Chicks have Ihc foundation of a great aerial game. The biggest fault Is tlie lack of expert cliunkers. Jim Smart and Frank Nicholson are Just fnir. The best passers on the sciuad are Dan CalcU'cll and Billy Delong, Both are unusually small. Dan scales only 120 pounds and original plans call for Delong: serving as extra point kicker. The chief nia v give Dan a starting n.sslgii- mcnl. especially since ho has a long football background and appears pretty ringwlse. in addition to uncanny throwing sight. In nn effort to get In as much work n.v possible, the boys umy put In a last, rough .session this afternoon then work under the lights Brownies Again Tied For First Detroit's Win Puts Pressure On Browns Who Defeat Red Sox ! US' United Press One more thrill-rilled"'day lias slipped by as the America;! League IKiuianl race runs out, and the St. Louis Drowns,and Detroit Tigers still stand in a flat lie for llic lead. The Tigers defeated llie Phlla- delphnl Athletics 6 to 0 yesterday tcrnoon at Detroit.
