FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1940 BLYTHEVILJ.E (ARK,) COURIER"'NEWS Chicks Are Eager To "Bounce Back" And Trounce Invaders BY J. P. FRIEND Blytheville's pennant-bound Maroon and White gridiron machine, derailed last week by the Jopesbpro Golden Hurricane, hits the comeback tr^il tonight against the RusseH- viile Crimson Cyclones, in their eighth conference game of the season. Smarting under the 13-8 upset * r-r-~— r— -. ••.. ............^— bv their arch rivals from Craighead county after winning their first seven games, the Chicks hope to use the Cyclones as stepping stones towards their first Big 15 championship. BUD they are certain to have a first class, A-l fight on their hands. Coach Wallace Bailey's aggregation has not, forgouen the 27-7 . lasning administered last year in "their first encounter with a tribal eleven and are anxious to even the score on the initial appearance before Blytheville fans. Gain Momentum Off to a slow start due to the presence of several newcomers whc had to undergo their, baptism of fire, the Cyclones have moved along at -a rapid clip of.late. They have won six games while losing two bptn to loop members by failure to "convert- after touchdowns. North Little Rock nosed them out, 7>6 while Forrest City finished ahead by virtue of a pair of conversions aiter scores, 20-18. "These same Mustangs battled Jonesbpro to a 2U-20 dogfall after leading; most p the way." On the black, side of the ledger the "12-7 verdict over the Fore Smith Grizzlies, . one of the better teams in the 'state, looms quite significant. Cilntpn, Paris bardanWie,' School for the Deaf and Bentpn, the last a conference foe, also fell before them. Ground Battle Looms Since both teams boast strong running attacks with occasional passes, the game looms as a bitter battle on the ground led by ace ball carriers. The No. 1 leather lugger for the Russellites is z swivel hipped youngster of 15C pounds, one ^Jbe Simpson. To date no team has been entirely successful in stopping him. His score sheet shows'he has : crossed into \ pay dirt on every opponent, several after ,Iongr : 'sensational -'jaunts through ;brqken; His' chief scoring assistant, is'-''"Tom" 'Tmgpen, a' hard running back who did considerable gaming/in. the '1939 battle. They receive aviuable help from Vine? ' and J. Kiser, to say the least of a steady line which has yielded only two touchdowns.' The other three enemy touchdowns, all by.. Forrest City, came on exploded aerial bombs. "Twins" Hold Key "Captain Norman (Monk) Mosley and Mayfield (Sonny) Lloyd, 'ithe Chicks' "touchdown twins" who run one-two in the conference scorers : hold the burden of power for the locals, flanked by Herschell Ber snarse ana Elliott Saliba, the other two starters. Checked last week except for a beautiful 60-yard punt return by Mosley, they expect • tc get back into the serious business of scoring- points.

A closer look at the records shows Boston College's only good win tc be that 27-7 triumph over Tulnne early in the season, and even tha' becomes less impressive in the light of Tulane'fi more recent defeats by Auburn, Fordham arid Alabama Centre, Temple, Iduiio, St. Manhattan, and Boston U., hardly can be classified as ; major tosts and there is a growing feeling that Baston College may 'have tougher going than 'Anticipated, Georgetown's: schedule is nothing to writ,e. home, about, but in maintaining an undefeated record of three yeni's,- the Hoyos have disposed of Roanoke, Temple, Waynes- tv Virginia, Tech, New York.
