It was really a night of glory for4 Old Miss' Star Guard the golden boys.of Clarence Geis, \vho brought a well-coached, lighting ball club from Jonesboro to accomplish'one of the biggest, upsets of the 1940 season in the Arkansas High School Conference. At leiist 7,000 fans, including practically everybody in Jonesboro except t,r;r. lire department, .sat in the "stands .at, Haley Field and saw Bud Daugherty. the Hurricane hurler, spark the offense that led to Jonesboro touchdowns in the second and third quarters while the inspired Jonesboro line charged fiercely to hold the powerful Chick running'offense well in hand. How was pushed back to their own 23, thanks to Moneys punt and a .six- yard loss on a Jonesboro fumble but Daugherty darted another pas^ to Cannon for 17 yards and a first down on their 40. Two play.s later Sellers grabbed^ another -leather bullet for 12 yards and a first down on the Chick 44. Jonesboro was making another unmistakable bid Two more plays netted no gain but Daugherty called another pass found Sellers open on the sideline. 1 and rifled it into his stretched arms. Just as the Chick secondary moved over to surround him Sellers flipped a lateral to McCall who well they did this is reflected in ' came U P p 11 \ dead run and with- the statistics which credited Jonesboro. with .nine first downs to one for Blytheville. Only in the .fourth quarter were the Chicks able to put six points on the Scoreboard and that by a brilliant run by fleet Monk Mosley, who took Daugherty's punl on his own 40-yard line and raced across the field and down the East sideline to outrun the Hurricane de- N fenses and score on a 60-yard gallop. Mosley and his fellow star, Sonny Lloyd, who was troubled with a foot injury that kept him on the sidelines last week, were 'well bottled up most of the night as the Chick blocking just wasn't there when needed and the fast charging Jonesboro v forwards .swarmed through - on the ball carriers time after time. That quick-breaking ".dash 'through center that Mosley out breaking his stride he continued on a 32-yard run for the second Jonesboro score. This time Daugherty's pass for the extra, point was clowned. This was the quarter when the Chicks made their only first down. Daugherty* punted out of bound:on the Jonesboro 34 from deeo in his own territory. Mosley and Lloyd on three plays made nine yards and»then Mosley bucked, for first down on the Jonesboro 20. Now, Blytheville fans reckoned business would pick up, but Jonesboro held for-downs on their own 11 yard line and again;the Hurricane chose to run., Daugherty and Peterson made one first down and drove up to the Jone.sboro 26 before Daugherty punted! 1 This was the punt that backfired.

Tennesse has probably the two best guards on any team in the country, Bob Suffridge and Ed Mo_ linski. Both were members of various' All-America teams last year. GUARDS LEAD TEAMS IN SOUTHEASTERN Three football squads in the 13 colleges of-the Southeastern Conference thought so much of their guards they elected them co-cap_ tains. Three other schools have captains playing the position. 1 Tulane, Georgia Tech and Missis- jsippi State have their captains playing alongside the center. The I Green Wave's Tom O'Boyle arid | Claude Groves, co-captains, are big, j heavy, bruising ' fellows who rate 'high. t GEORGIA TECH'S CAVETTE IS REMARKABLE KICKER Neil Cavette, captain, and Butch Aderholt, alternate, of Georgia Tech are two of the best. Cavette is a remarkable kicker. Captain Hunter Cohern and his alternate, Guy McDowell of Mississippi State, are robust forwards. John Ellis of Vanderbilt and George Kinard of Mississippi are All-America, candidates at, the least recognized of all positions. Ernest Mills of Auburn, alternate captain, does a fine job at guard. J. W. Goree of Louisiana State is another guard, and Florida supporters will fight if you say there are any better men that position than Mush Battista. The Southeastern Conference is on guard! Camden Fails To Take Lead; Loses To North Little Rock CAMDEtf, Ark., Nov. 9.—Jonesboro's Golden Hurricane opened the door to the conference title for Camden , last night by upsetting Blytheville but the Panthers, td« had their hands more than lull and dropped their first conference game to North Little Rock, 7 to G North Little llock took advantage of a fumbted punfc in the second period to score and then staved off every Camden drive except one to nose out the Panthers. Linebarier, Camden back, tried to pick up a rolling punt on hLs own five yard line, fumbled and North Little Rock recovered. On fourth down a. pass, Griffith tc Baurnan, accounted for the . touchdown. Chambless kicked t,he all important point. The Panthers scored in the third quarter when Purifoy' went six yards over tackle. His try for goal failed. The Panthers threatened time after time but couldn't again reach pay territory. Franck Many Stunts On Sunday Card At ^ i- Fairgrounds Here John tambrough, his All-America running mate, said Jim Thomason, above, of Texas A. &. M. was the greatest football player in the country. Given an opportunity to carry in his senior year. Thomason is doing what teammates knew he could do all along. He averaged] 8.27 yards each carry in five games and caught nine passes for 1 yards and three touchdowns. An automobile will crash into a burning house, another will make a jump over six cars,, another will be saturated with gasoline and set afire on the backstretch and will be driven in front of the grandstands at the Mississippi County Fairgrounds for a. few of the thrills provided at the Ace Lillard Circus of Death Sunday; The show is being brought here under the auspices of the Dud Cason post of the American Legion This troupe is the only one to successfully feature the. burning car drive, it was said. Ace Lillard, owner and proprietor of the show drove the first burning car in 1936 in St. Louis. There are six drivers who will perform Sunday afternoon. They' include Mr. Lillard's wife. Babe Lillard, one of the few lady stunt drivers and whom this troupe believes to be the only "all round" stunt woman, and his brother Buddy Lillard, whose specialty is a brick wall crash in which he crashes through 6.000 pounds of Athletes Will No Longer Be Ineligible For Year After Transfer LITTLE ROCK, Nov. 8.—The Arkansas Athletics Association, after heated debate, Friday scrapped its two-year-old "no transfer" rule which had provided that a high school athlete would become ineligible for interschool contests for a full year .if he changed schools for any reason. The vote on the motion fco strike the rule from the by-laws, a perennially controversial issue, was 77 <--o 67. The motion provided that the revision of the by-laws would become effective immediately, thus making first-year transfer students eliaible now for .high school .bas- j.'°*-.hall. Because of another regulation governing registrations, .the revision will have no effect on the 1940 football teams. The A. A.>A. also: Re-elected R. H. Moore. Jonesboro, president and named J. F.
