P. FRIEND The .1940 Arkansas High School Conference schedule moves into the semi-final -round this week with only, four games listed inside the loop. Back into the winning stride again by, virtue of their 9-0 defeat of the stubborn RussellviMe Crim- son'Cyclones, the Biytheville Chicks Friday play hosts to the Benton Panthers, wno will be making their first ^ sojourn in Biytheville, as •well as Northeast Akransas. Coached by James Ahlf, who led '1 the 'Osceola Indians to their last championship, the Panthers are .experiencing their worst season in 7history. They have won only two _ games while losing seven, three in the conference. 1 Their most recenr defeat was a 27-7 shellacking from the North Little Rock Wildcats. ~ While not particularly impressive in downing Russellville, esoecially in blocking, Die Chicks did show flashes of the form which has carried them to seven previous victories. Only once did the visitors threaten but it was snuffed by an alert line, benefitted bv a timely penalty. A' frozen' Jfield handicapped both teams, to say the leas* of sub-freezing weather that kept the fans away in-droves. Tigers vs. Panthers . i The .'game which is of particular interest to local fans^ brings together the" Camden ^Panthers and Little ~Rock,Tigers..The Panthers are the Chicks' most -serious rivals for the Bills' championship. They have lost'.one game while winning three inside the league. The- tribe has a record of 7-1. Camden winds up the season aeainst^EI 'Dorado next week', while* Forrest CifcyJ-idoois as a serious barrier to the^Dildy* Dyna. miters. - Keyed up for the annual Pine -Bluff battle which they won, 14-12 the Timers mav find it difficult to prevent a letdown. In that event .-they .Ixkelviwill find Sam Coleman's , crew unusually difficult to handle fsDee.iallv. since they had a com'; para lively" easy time in downing . \ ^~ No Hope for Hope - :,'_C6ach Foy Hammons' hapless -Hooe Bobcats, defeated In eit?ht of - their nine" games, appear hearted .for another thrashing when they fnv'ade the North Little Rock lair After checking: their losing streak with a 20-12 win over Prescott two weeks,'-ago, the Bobcats slipoed -back into the rut as they fell before Malvern, 25-7. The Wildcats are definitely on the \io«crAde a? evidenced by triumphs over Camden and Benton in their last two starts." " .El Dorado will be the scene of the annual get-together of the Fordvce Redbu«?s and El Dorado Wildcats, o feud that has boen going on from year to year for seasons. The eame will have no championship tinee as several times during their rivalry but the lemoo of the battle is not expected to be lessened to any noticeable degree.

COURIER -NEWS• = Biytheville Ace Seems Cer- - tain To Lead Conference Scorers Barring an unusual burst .of scoring, it appears certain that Captain Norman (Monk) Mosley will finish the season as high scorer in the Big 15. Monk added one point last week by virtue of a drop kick 'after tossing a touchdown pass to h|s scoring partner, May field (Sonny) Lloyd and ran his total , to 76 points. Sonny is in second place with 53, a lead of 19 points over Kenny Recce, El Dorado star. Webb. Forrest City's fleet fullback, is fourth with 30, and Wayne Marshall, Little Rock ace, fifth with 28..

COLLEGE STATION, Texas Nov NEW YORK, Nov. 18. (UP)- 18 (UP>~l wouldn't .know •'" about right now, but between the hours of'2:30 P. M. and 5:30 P. M. last Saturday, the Texas Aggies had the best football team in the United Slates. • • • During 'thosei three nours the Ag- gies were the perfect combination oi' power arid deception.

Professional football fans counting the days until Dec. 8 today for a replay of the Washington Redskins-Chicago Bears ' gridiron thriller, Unless there's an "upset in the script : these two clubs will meet on that date in Washington for the world's professional title. Until - then ,the Redskins must .be recognized as the National Football League's top team as a result of their 7-3 triumph over the Bears .yesterday at Washington. The victory virtually clinched the Eastern title for the Redskins. 1 With only two more games left to play and" a two game lead, the Redskins need only a tie or a win to clinch ahe title. The worst they can do is finish in a tie. To do that they'd have to lose their last two games and the Brooklyn Dodgers would have to sweep their remaining pair. .; Although they lost to the" Redskins, the Bears still Hold a i-game lead in the. West and seem reasonably safe with only the Cleveland Rams and .Chicago Cardinals, the West's '-two''.weak 1 sisters, remaining on the schedule. , •.••'-' The Bears have lost three times brought bea and in two of those defeats they three-quarter were within a few seconds of victory.' . .••;...', : Last weeh U\e Bears lost to the Lions in the last minute, of play and yesterday they were within one yard of victory in the last' five seconds. With the Redskins leading 7-3, Bob Snyder fired a- 30-yarc 1 pass to George McAfee, who pulled the ball down on the 20-yard line and ran to the. 1-yard line before Dick Todd pulled him down: The Bears took _ time-out and 'drew ' a 5-yard penalty?" Then two last ditch passes failed as the game ended Two passes from Frank Filchocty gave Washington the winning touchdown in the second period after the Bears had set up a 3-0 lead in the opening period on Jack Manders' field goal. Sammy Baugh completed 11 out of 17 passes for 98 yards but- failed to throw any touchdown aerials. Scoring a touchdown in the first two minutes of play, the New York Giants did the Bears a good turn by. beating the Green Bay Packers. 7-3, and keeping them in second place. 1 LariyBuhler. Packers' fullback, fumbled the opening kickoff and Leland Shaffer recovered -on the Packers' 6. Two plays lost two yards and- Len Barnum .passed tc Shaffer in the end zone for the winning touchdown. The Packers outgained the. Giants, 227 yards to 120, but. were handcuffed in scoring, territory. Clark ,-Hinkle's 31-yard field goal saved the Packers from a. shutout. A crowd of 28,762 saw the game. : - . .' The Brooklyn Dodgers spotted the Cleveland Rams a 14-b lead and then routed the Westerners; 29-14 before .19,212 fans at Ebbets Field. /The 'Dodgers were redhot in the j final half, -scoring 23 'points.' Ace i Parker was the Dodger hero, running .back un intercepted pass 68 yards for one touchdown, passing for two more and .setting up'.nn.- other one with a long- run-after j an' interception.

Not orice^but half a dozen times against Rice, l saw Kimbrough cornered by two, three anci four lacklers. Big tacklers, 'too men of 190, 195 and 200 pounds. One by one they would hit him, and one by one they would bounce off, dazed and hurt.: John came out of the game without even a bruise. He grinned all the time he -was playing, and never once gave the slightest indication of a hurt. His number was called 18 times and his average gain was a /shade better'than six yards a try Down here the football folk are hoping that sometime the Aggies will play an entire game without calling any other number than Kimbrough's. It would be interesting to see just how much work he could stand. The chances are, he would take such an assignment 'in stride and score two or three touchdowns ,with' battering ram marches down the field. , Kimbrough had a lot'of help in licking Rice 25 to 0. There was the Aggie line to start with, and there was a young man named Bill (Jitterbug) Henderson who caught eight successive passes for a total gain of 117 yards.. Bill is just a .sophomore, and,never has played football until he came to College Station, but he'll make a hundred AllrAmerica's before he quits. The man who/pitched the strikes lo Henderson ,was Pugh. and if the pro -boys are looking gor a quarterback' who can think as well as Pitch, Pugh is the boy. The Aggies gained 406 yards against a Rice team that is "on a par'with most of the good teams in'the country. The Aggies scored three touchdowns in 11 minutes covering 186 yards in 22 plays. In scoring these three touchdowns they showed everything a super football team should have—irresistible power, deceit, poise and tremendous spirit; As for Rice, they showed three MONDAY^ NOVEMBERS grc-at players-Back ;Bob Bnimley, Tackle Fred Harlmann, and Center Tuffy Whitlow .This fellow Whitlow is far and away the best center I have seen this year and is worthy of anybody's All-America.
