FRIEND This is intended neither as a warning nor a threat but the Russellville Crimson Cyclone, and -local football fans as well, can expect a varied attack from the Blytheville - Chicks in the conference game tomorrow night. Re-enforced with new plays .to t> '• —• '•-•-—-: — 'fire at the invadeis who will be' ^ making their bow ut Haley Field, r the Dildy Dynamiters intend to . start blasting from the . opening .] whisile until the final blast is | sounded ending the thing. t '.The iribe makes no bones over v the' fact that the Jonesboro defeat i hurt and stung plenty and . some- the Cyclones jn every game, scoring at least once. Weighing 155 pounds, approximately the same as Monk, he i.s described by funs and officials who have seen him in action as one of the best college prospects ever turned out in the state. HLs fine work has attracted the attention of several colleges who would lure him after. he'finishes his pn;p carrier. SLanflll them for Gutchen, who tabbed the tribe, said he had one is gonna pay—tmd •fiuice-'ihe Cyclones happen along next on the grid calendar it looks .as'ii' Uiey are going to be subjected to the heavy bombing. Head Coach Joe Dildy naturally didn't reveal. just what, the new packages would contain, other than what he hopes they : will provide , . , ,. . .. , . . ., ... the punch to set his charges backi 0 ' 1 ^ * he j£l f; *>ul ls elus ; ve *' Ul into v their-winning ways on the a deceptive hip movement — " the Arkansas , **• , . • Chattanooga, Tenn. Amateur .Is llth Knockout .Victim Of Local Heavy Another heavyweight fell before Long Jim Lunsford's frailing fist's as the big Blytheville amateur stopped Dewitl Louis of Chattanooga, Tenn., in the second round ut the Legion arena last night. This made 19 wins for Lunsford in 20 starts. LouJ.s was' his llth knockout victim. Heralded as one of the best amateurs in Tennessee, 'the stocky scrapper from Chattanooga sailed out of his corner at the first gong only to meet a flurry of glbves .In successfully curbed before getting into the secondary lie would ' be exlremelv difficult to caleh\ Not road which leads to High School Conference championship. l Also Have Surprises The visitors, however, have been planning some surprises of their own, according to grapevine re•"ports, from Russellville. Coach Wallace Bailey will have his entire squad free of ailments at his command and, judging from their performances the past three weeks, it should be adequate enough to give .the Marooners quite a busy evening- : .;•. The Cyclones are banking he&v- ily on their triple threat star. Joe Simpson, ably supported by Tom Thigpen, a hard running back who gave the Chicks lots of anxious moments last year, to produce enough touchdowns to emerge on top, especially after the strong forward wall has checked Messrs. '• Norman•. (Monk) Mosley and : Mayfield tSonny) Lloyd. They argue that if Jonesboro's line stopped the "touchdown twins" they can .do it, too. Two of their.scouts were in the stands during the; Jonesboro game and there is a strong possibility they will attempt to set up ihe same defense. ' Simpson Is Sparkplug This lad Simpson has sparked much respect for him and unless the body as L,imsf6rd started shoot-' 'ing from both sides. Louis came off the canvas three times in the first round and tried to make a tight of it. The CLrsfc time he came up smiling, but as Lunsford loaded on again there was no further pretense. Louis was hurt and it appeared that he would have to be dragged to his corner before the round ended. -Louis managed -to survive the j first round, however, and answered I the bell for the second. but i Luns- remarkable change of pace. Thigpen is another back lo watch. He runs hard and low on ot!' tackle slants and Quick opening plays/He also can pass but the bulk of the heaviest duties are entrusted to Simpson. Llni'A Equally Matched Russellville's front line del'ense scales approximately the same as the locals, 170 pounds. Heading the .weight chart is 'Guard Ken Kinslow at .180 pounds. Fast for his size ho leads the offense from fL.ort punt formation, the same that the Golden Hurricane employed. His sentinel running mate ford battered him down two more times before he whipped a hard hook .just above the waist line that sent Louis to the floor "for keeos. The Chattanoogan was seconded by Woody Burr, tou<?h Savannah. Tenn., boy who recently dropped a close one to Craig's sensational young protege and who brought a scales ten pounds less, is a little j team of boxers to oooose local boys faster though not as aggressive. Dick Freeman and Bill Riser, tackles, pull the Fairbanks to HO apiece and are said .to be exceptionally hard to handle. Blackwood " and Moon Distributing Co. Little Rock. Ark. Minor are .adequate on defense^ and can snag passes, though they 'have not been called on often due to the strong running attack. In the middle^ of the line Is Bobby Baker, only 150' pounds, who like the Chicks' Elmer Stone is the smallest snapperb&ck to grace their livery in seasons. But he..'has' done all right so far in filling the big ;shoes of Alf Satterfield, who ran "Bill" j Godwin a dangerously close race for all-state honors last year. "Watch Chicks Closely Coaches Dildy and Mitchell Best have attempted to let nothing escape their critical eyes as they arep the Chicks for what they believe will be one of the toughest •assignmentsof .the year. They have stressed. Defense., both ".. on , the grouiicl and against .aerials,. working overtime on Russellville plays. The Maroon line didn't appear quite tip to par against Jonesboro but should .-be .all the better this week. Offensive drills haven't -been slighted, especially the. overhead game. Their, running stymied last 'week they resorted to passes without effect, completing only one—a short hoist to Sonny for less than ten yards. Plays involving laterals and forwards have been generously rehearsed, which indicates they may divide the time ut more throwing and sprinting. Unless • "Bo" Coppedge's injured left arm improves more rapidly j than yesterday and today, he is certain to be on the bench for the opening kickoft". In that event James Ccbb will go to left tackle and Tommy Little to right guard. in other bouts on the card. A. J. Caraway of Blytheville was awarded a three round decision over Joe Me Adams of Savannah in the semi-final. Joe Daniels of Savannah and -Henry James fought a three round draw and in another bout Harold Gooch of Savannah won by a technical knockout' over Mutt Wright of Blytheville who injured his. shoulder in the second 'and could not continue. J. Hall of Blytheville decisioned Johnny Markle of.. Savannah in another three rounder and two negro fighters Jim Johnson of Steele and Curtir Davis of Blytheville put on u slugging match to open the show with Johnson getting the verdict.
