SATtBDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1933 ——~ m 1 ROUTE ftiimi h Hero of World's Series Here? i Chicks Count First. Three :.'. Touchdowns With o u t .Making, A First Down. . : The Blytheville high school Chlckasaws opened their grid campaign yesterday afternoon at Hal.?Y Field with a 46 to 7 victory over •the Osceola Semlnoles. • •, The game drew only a small feathering of fans .outside of stu- ,'denu-of the two schools, the date for the struggle having been Juggled around until many were un- 1 aware of the time finally set for hostilities to begin. The contest ,'opened at 4:30 o'clock and the ^floodlights for night football were brpught Into use In the closing ,fi)lnutes of ihe game. :•• Me'vln Lapides, captain of the Ctceoui team and state 100 yard .dish champion, last sprlrig, per•formed brilliantly, especially on the tofelng end of the Semlnble aerial ' attack, but he was a marked than . .when He carried the pigskin. ;' : . Mosley, Beck arid Morse carried the brunt of the Biythevllle attack with Beck doing most of the line plunging, and'Mosley and Morse contributing scoring runs. The spectators watched the Chicks roll up a commanding lead lii the first half In spite of the fact that they failed to register a first down. The Blythevllle machine clicked belter In the second half but It remained an alert ability: to make and take advantage of the breaks rather than a relentless offense that figured largely In the one-sided score. •".Although the Osceolans felled to score In the flrst^half (he game . was stubbornly contested. The Chicks scored three touchdowns in the half 'and made good all three extra points. In the second half the Chlcii accounted for four touchdowns but made only one extra point. The Semlnoles lone touchdown, scored a s the climax of a string of completed passes, was counted In the third quarter and the extra point also added on a.pass. . . .; .. .The Chicks went right to work at-the start, scoring in the in ret , ..minute- of play. And Ironically . enough It was. a fumble by the Semlnote captain. Lapides.- that pared the way foe the first touchdown.

The Semlnoles reeled off two first downs in succession with Lapides .and Snelson doing the ball carrying. The Chicks stiffened 'and : Taylor kicked off the Blytheville goal • line. After an offside play spoiled his first kick out from the B. H. S. JO yard line Mosley booted-another out to the Brythevilli 48 yard line where It was grounded., Osceola taking the offense' reeled off about seven yards in two; plays. Then Lapides tossed one to Taylor who was dragged'down on the ..Blythevllle 23 yard line. Snelson led off on the goal line attack by cracking the Chick line forr six yards and followed with three more two plays later that annexed another Osceola first down, this time on the 12 yard line. Two Plays later §nelson .fumbled and BlythevUle recovered : oh six yard line. Occeola had another chance B* minute later, when Mccley's hurried ktck out only carried to the 1> yard line. Lapides lost^ix yards on an attempted end run but promptly put the ball in the dan- ter foot again by heaving to Chtanhall who was tackled on the BWbevUle 12 yard line.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fourth of « series of six articles In which Walter Johnson, one of ihe greatest-pitchers of all.time, com-, ments on the world series between the Olants and' his old team, the Washington Nationals. • * • • • B¥ WALTER JOHNSON (la told to Bill Braccher. NEA Service Owcti Editor) NEW YORK, Sept. 30._Basel>all writers here say the Giants have a much better defensive ball club on the.fleld than appears on paper. .In other words, fighting qualities give . a better reason for their pennant victory than the averages. • . That certainly Is true. In the few games I have seen the Giants play this year, they were on their toes and hustling from the first innings to the last, especially the Infielders. Blondy Ryan, a fine competitor at shortstop, and Bill Terry, a natural leader at first base, have helped to keep the rest of the club going at top speed. But, taking both clubs rnan for man, I think the Senators are better in both the Infield and the outfield and have a better-balanced pitching staff than the Giants. Bluege 1 1 regard as the best defensive third baseban in the game. He has .proved' himself over ten years and. two world series, 1924 and 1825: When the pressure Is on. he Is the kind of fellow who will not fall. • Ryan' »«. Cronin While every 5 baseball man under the sun admires Ryan for the splendid spirit he has shown dur- ng the season, his performances n the field or at bat are not llke- v to .compare with the play of Joe 3ronln, who is well on the way to >ecotriinK the geatest shortstop %ince : Hans Wagner. • With a ball same at stake there s no .brie In baseball more dan- Kerous at the plate than Cronin. In the field he takes every kind of a chance, coming up with plays :hat appear^to be Impossible. . Buddy -Myer. second bosemin of ihe- Nationals, has not ;qulte as 1 ?ood-. a'.fielding record 'as 'Crltz, nit "he has a big edite-at bat and is the kind of ball player who Titkes friends-of all the fans for it*' gamfcness. ' : . ' : '.At' firsty young-^Joe Kuhel lacks Ihe ; 'experlence of Terry who Is a^finished nelder and hard hitter. But: 'lf'Joe'. : hadn't: come through tbr'the': Niits this •year, 'the- world series story might be different. • .: : Well; .'Now, 1 Wemid Yon? .. Ctolng'to . the outfield, I have a question to . ask. Would you trade Minusli," Schutt*. and Goslln for the Giants' outfield which Is made up .of'O'Doul, Ott. Joe Moore and Davis?' Neither would I and my reason: is 'much the same as yours. The" Washington outfield has established'.'Itself as a heavy-hitting imlt that seenis Incapable of slumps. And they are all good fly- chasers. - • It was the batting of Schulte early in the season that carried the Nats to victor In games when left-handed pitchers might have beaten them. T do not like to make predictions about Individuals, but I think Goslin will hit in this series. .1 never will forget how he won Ihe fourth game of the 1924 world series for us with s, home run into the stands, scoring a couple of men ahead of him. It was just the margin we needed, as the final score was 7 to 4. In the very next game he hit another Into the stands, starting a rally that carried Washington to victory. Not many men who played In that series remain In the game Only five,- as I recall, still are with the teams that met In the series, and about a half dozen are playing with other big league teams. Bluege, Goslln and Sam Rice are still on the Job for the Nats; and Terry and Jackson are the only Giants left over from the club that lost won a pennant for McGraw.
