The fur'likely will fly and plenty at Camden when 'the Panther? tangle with the scrappy Fordyce Redbugs. Strongest in recent yean- and possessing two hard running backs,' the Redbugs no longer belong in the setup class. They gave the ' Chicks a terrific struggle and only last week bowed to Little Rock after a bitter bout. Oddly enough, the Panthers also lost through failure to convert the extra point after touchdown to North Little Rock. ' . Coach'Cowan's North Side 'Cats should have no trouble in their setto with weak Benton, though Jimmy Ahlf's charges did extend the Russellville Crimson Cyclones in their Homecoming last Fnday ; losing only 19-0. Scrap at El Dorado Not listed as a conference battle, the El Dorado-Smackover scrap always provides ample action. This season promises 'to be no exception. Top billing is the anticipated duel between Kenney Reece, Wildcat ace, and Buck Scott, Smackover sparkplug, two oi the best .backs in the .state. . ''. " . In the other games Forrest City entertains Wynne, while Hope hopes for another victory as they play Malvern. Results of games last week: Jonesboro 13. Biytheville G. Little Rock 7, Fordyce 6.

Seven times the enemy yielded to ,his surge. Seven .times the .enemy was thrown back by the mad drive pf the big fellow. Seven times they grounded him into the mid, and. seven times he got up, laughing, and set off another battering ram plunge. And on the seventh time he went over for a touchdown'— the touchdown that put his team; ahead 13 to 7 and really won the game for the Aggies and kept' intact their winning streak that started the week after Thanksgiving in 1938. This drive'of Kimbrough's — it covered 31 yards—was the highight of the game. Every person in the stands, even the S. Tvl. U. shouters and howlers, were pulling for him as lie moved—whang, bang, boom— down the field. No one thought he would fail. He never had failed before, and not even the treacherous footing could stop him. Kimbrough didn't look very good in , the first half of the game. HLs number wasn't called very often and'he didn't seem to be tremendously interested in the game. He was relaxed. Sort of .shiftless. But All Go Info Action Coming Weekend-Some Against Tough Foes •':•: BY HARRY FERGUSON Uivile<l Press Sports Editor NEW YORK, Nov. 11 (UP;—Eleven major football teams are undefeated today, and the schedule fo'' the coming week-end sends all of them into action. A few of the lucky elevens'have easy opponents, but on most cases the fur will fly in hard-fought battles. Best game of the day probably will be played in the East, where Boston College and Georgetown, both unbeaten, will collide at Boston. when the Mustangs tied the score with the season going nito the get back into the groove here Friday night against the Russellville Cyclones, another Big 15 opponent. Despite the loss to their Craig- headi county rivals, the locals were not knocked out of the title race. In fact, they are still favored over the state to cop the crown. But they must sweep the next three games from Russellville, Ben on and Forrest City to eliminate, all other claims. . The big North Little Rock Wildcats paved the way by pinning a 7-6 licking on the previously unbeaten Camden Panthers, the last outstanding contender to bite the dust in this gruelling campaign! when upsets come a- dime a dozen. •'Forrest': City,, tribal Turkey Day; ( Arkansas) foe, has three victories and a tie, with Jonesboro, but can not claim the championship even if they should go through/unbeaten since they play only five 'conference games. Rules provide that a team must schedule at least six members of the league to qualify for high honors. Have No Alibis The Dildy Dynamiters have no alibis to offer in losing to Jonesboro. They met an inspired team which did not make, a mistake all night. Jonesboro ra'i with tremendous power, charged with vim and vigor, got the breaks and made the best of them, to win. The defense was'- more than ^'.adequate . for it stopped cold the strong Chick running attack, something that no other outfit has been able to do all season. ;';••., . -.-•'•".- ; i..: ; '-; Disappointed but far from disheartened, the locals expect "to forget it as soon as possible. It is as 1 so much water under the bridge and they have their work' all cut out . for them and are determined to : come through and win the ir first Forrest City 34, Stuttgart 7.

Tney heard him, the other Ag- gies. They called his number. He roared. They called .it again. He tept roaring. You could hear bones sag and muscle moanuis John gave the Mustangs the shoulder, hip, thigh, head and elbow treatment. They found him — fought him with everything they had. But all you have isn't enough to stop John, once he decides to March. Yes, quite a boy. Makes you feel awfully fat and old and short- winded to watch him work with what must be the finest human chassis now at large. Wrestlers Will Try Tag Bout homestretch- here are the undefeated teams by sections: ; : East—Cornell, Penn • State, LaFayette, Boston College, Georgetown. ,' •'-••-..: Fidwest—Minnesota, Notre Damn. South—Tennessee, Miss i s s i p pi State. Southwest—Texas A. & M. Far West—Stanford. Three teams — Michigan, Southern Methodist and Franklin and Marshall—dropped out of the select circle Saturday. Michigan lost to Minnesota, SMU went down before the Texas Aggies and Franklin and Marshall was turned back by > New York University. Of .the 11 survivors the following seem fairly certain of getting pasl the week-end: Lafayette whicl meets Western Maryland,"'•.Tenn- essee which plays Virginia, Mississippi State which plays .Millsaps. The rest of them are' in for a fight as follows: Penn State Which meet NYU; Minnesota which : plays Purdue; Notre Dame which meets Iowa; Texas A, & M.'which plays Rice; Stanford which- meets Oregon State; the above-mentioned game between Boston College and Georgetown; and Cornell:, which plays an improving Drtmouth team'. Of the teams that are still un- beqten, Cornell, Minnesota, and Notre Dame definitely will • not - accept invitations to bowl games. That leaves Stanford, Tennessee, Boston College, Georgetown, Texas A. & M., Penn State, Lafayette and Mississippi State as jjossible postseason contenders. Some of the highlights of the play Saturday: Upset of the day—the way a so- .so Harvard team hung on to get a 10-10 tie with mighty Pennsylvania. Player of the day—Jarrin' John Kimbrough. all-American back from. Texas A. & M., who tore ' the Southern Methodist line to pieces to keep .his team unbeaten und untied. Strangest score of the day—the total of 8(5 points scored in the game between Manhattan and Mar- quctte, which Manhattan finally won, 45 to 41. scorer of the Big 15 with 74 points for seven games. ....;,• Mayfield (Sonny) Lloyd, his running mate, and El Dorado's Kenny Reece were held scoreless but held on to second and third places with 47 and 34 points, respectively.

And the Washington Redskins, Chicago Bears and New York Giants were picking themselves out of the ashpan today, wondering what happened. Dr. Jock Sutherland's hustling Brooklyn Dodgers, beaten three" times in seven games, dusted ofl the league leading Redskins, 36-14, with more than a little help from the inept Braves themselves. It was Washington's first defeat in eight ga'mes and the first time in history the Dodgers have ever licked the Redskins. The day's largest crowd, 33,846, saw the -game at Ebbetts Field. . . Cotion I 3 rice, ano::ier one of those wild passing Texans, pitched the Detroit Lions to an upset victory over the, Bears in the last 26 seconds of play, 17-14, before 21,735 fans at Detroit, The defeat 'trimmed the Bears' Western lead to one game inasmuch as the Green Bay Packers triumphed as expected over the Chicago Cardinals, 28-7. The third upset was registered by Dutch Clark's Cleveland Rams who capitalized on, two pass interceptions to shut out the New York Giants,. 13-0, before a crowd of 23,614 at .the Polo Grounds. It was the first time the Giants had been whitewashed at home since Detroit did it back -in 1936 and dropped them to third place, virtually out of the race. Vic Spadaccini intercepted one pass, and ran 60-yards for a tocuhdown and intercepted another to set up the other score. WHITE PETROLEUM JELLY LOOK!

DALLAS,' Nov. 11 (UP)—To a man whose hair is beating a strate- gic'retreat toward the nape of his neck, whose weight is something that makes airline clerks take reassuring glances toward the wings of their planes, and whose blood pressure is two notches higher than that of a cobra in high anger. John Kimbrough furnishes quite a thrill. ..'...' He :is all of the man all of us would like to be.

He has the size, the speed, the power, and'the stamina that—well, that you'd like to have just as rnuch as I 'would. 1 Sixty minutes of punishing football is as nothing to Jarring John. I had my glasses on him when the final whistle of the Aggies-S. M. U. game sounded last Saturday, and he looked downright sorry. The solid hour of bumping and banging and hammering and jolting hadn't affected him one bit. He was dancing around on his toes when the finish came, handling his 222 pounds "of muscle as if he were a Pueblo demolition of a bridge that had been .constructed in .1915, - workmen .at '.Norman Okla., found a leaf imbedded in the concrete of the abutment The color and contour of the leaf were unchanged despite it 25-year internment. e High school Conference memi for the week is appetizing enough .Leading the .list is the annual struggle between the Little Rock Tigers and Pine Bluff Zebras which will be reeled off Saturday at Littls Rock. Beaten in the loop and long eliminated from all title consideration, both have shown improvement in recent games, and appeal fairly even. The Tigers have won their last three games after losing _ four in a row. Pine Bluff has won • three and. lost five for the season. Little Rock nosed out Fordyce 7-6 and ' Pine . Bluff whipped Hot Springs, 13-7, last week. Jonesboro At Spa Jonesboro faces a major struggle with Hot Springs at "the Spa. After a strong start which gave them a top billing along with Biytheville, Jonesboro. El Dorado, the Trojans • have been tripped three times, Camden, Fordyce and Pine Bluff. They are big and rugged and ap- ballet dancer. There was a grin on his face, and for a moment, I thought he .might appeal to the officials to let the teams play a while longer, . just for the fun of rough, tough, physical contact. Quite a football fellow. Kimbrough. The Performance he put on in the third period of the Ag- gies game with the Mustangs gave : him a place alongside the real champions in my book. In two ot three minutes he gave a one-mai show that matched Jesse Owen's work at Berlin in the 1936 Olympics, Seabiscuit's victory in th Santa Anita handicap, Andy" Pul ney's run in the never-to-be-for gotten Ohio State-Notre Dame game, and Rito Capadrutt's bobsled madness in the 1932 winter games at Lake Placid. The score was tied at 7-7 when Kimbrough took the game into his own hands. Tine field was muddy andi slippery, the S. M.
