Pine lilufr, Hot'Springs, Cnnidcn, El Dorado, Jcncsboro, Re'nton, Forrest City and Fordyce. The governing board which will pass on the status of the Blythe- ville-Grecnwood game is composed of T. 11. Alford of North Little Sock, president of the conference, loach Allen Dunaway of Pine Bluff and Coach Merving Perry of tiot Springs. If the board approves the Blythc- villa-Greenwood game as equal to i conference game then Blytheville will have the five conference ;ames required for next season, being scheduled lo meet Hot Springs. North iittle Rock, Jonesboro and Forrest City, conference members. If it does'not approve the game with the Mississippians, Blythcville will have only four games with conference foes and presumably will remain outside the fold. Despite a deadlock vote of the :onfercnce members generally on the question of giving Blythcville credit for a conference game in the Greenwood tilt, it is generally believed that- approval will be forthcoming from the governing board to which the matter was referred. iius'sellvillj, a conference member, lias an open date on the same day Blylkevllle has an open date 'jut the two schools could not get together for a game. Mr. McClurkin said he believed a much more attractive game could be arranged "or Blythcville outside the conference than (o play rtussellville, particularly with Hussellville 'wanting i home game, the same as Blythc- ville aiso desires.
