FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22/1940 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK,) COURIER NEWS Dynamiters Are Easy Favorites Over Visiting Team BY J. P. FRIEND The Blythevilie Chicks will honor their Dads tonight when they open football relations with the Benton Panthers and hope to continue their march-toward the Arkansas Hight School Conference title. The opening kickoff is set for 8* ——•' •' •• - ••• • j_ o'clock at Haley Held. J Fathers of . the various players will march-with their, sons froni the dressing room just prior to the start of the game and will take their places oh a special beiich adjoining the one used by the tribe. Numbers coresponding to those worn by their sons will be pinned to the backs of the fathers. Seeking their eighth conference' victory and ninth win of the season, the Drtdy Dynamiters will take the Held with a slightly altered lineup. Alvis Harris, who has been used, only in relief roles, will be at I'ight end in place of LeRoy Ross, regular wihgman. Ross is still hob-= bling from a badly wrenched knee and likely will not be permitted to be in uniform. He has not reported for practice at; all this week but has spent the time on the trainer's table. , ; ' two Have Injuries Head Coach Jooe Dildy said he would start the remainder of the team which has been getting opening assignments, despite the fact that at least two \vere,not in the best of condition. Big Bo Cbppedge, 215-pound left tackle, has been handicapped all week with a bruised left arm but will be at his post. Mayfield (Sonny) Lloyd, brilliant fullback, still favors his twisted foot which refuses .to heal properly. However, he is due for the fullback slot. In the. event he is not really needed there is every possibility that young Carlos Deal, his chief understudy, will be inserted to carry on. The remainder of the line will consist of Elmer Stone, center; James Cobb and Everett ''Crosidw^ guards; Charles Wright, fight tackle, and Wallace Smith, left end. Supporting Lloyd in the backfieid will be Captain Norman (Monk) Mosley, left halfback; Elliott Saliba, right halfback, and Herschell Besharse, blocking back. Have Fast Team ,.Coach Jamas Alilf . is -bringing a fast; hard' charging but light .team to rr Blytlievme' a^nd Northeast'" Arkansas .rTbr^tlie" first time >m "history:Winner of only, two c games .as compared to -six defeats/'the Panthers have all to gain and nothing -to lose and will be..out .to give everything they have. They are in excellent shape for the first time in weeks and expect to make a favor-' able showing, at least. ' .Their only triumphs include a 20-19 decision over" Catholic High and .a 26-0 shellacking of Arkadel- . phia.\ and these scores compare favorably with Chick opponents. Fordyce, which gave the tribe a ran for their money, vScored exactly the same number of points against Arkadelphia and whipped the Hot Springs Trojans who were able to nose out Catholic High only by a single touchdown. Malvern, victor over Little Rock, scored only 13 points. Comparative scores indicate a decided margin in favor of the Maroon Maulers.

(UP)—Have you ever jumped/right but of your skin? I mean, have you ever jumped completely out of it so,, that it stood .right there beside ycm, looking like a Dr. Den ton's sleeping garment? I did yesterday, in the middle of the 'Register and Tribune sports department. It wasn't a .pretty sight, because after all beauty is only skin deep. • The reason for all this was the sudden and unexpected arrival of Bob Feller, not a Bob Feller but the BOB FELLER, of whom the nicest, thing I said all last baseball season was that he was!a crybaby, a sissy, and a whiner. 1'iii so broad-minded that I am capable of overlooking the fact that ne only won 27 games and is perhaps, the finest pitcher in baseball. Well, anyway, there he stood right .back , of me, fresh from a quail hunting trip and with a shotgun in.his hands. I had several nasty thoughts, one being that maybe Feller wasn't as broadminded as. I was and wouldn't overlook the things I had written about him and Trosky and Harder and Chapman and the other Cleveland Indians. I didn't dare turn around for a- moment. Under my breath I whispered "count ten, Bob, count ten." I hoped he remembered his American history, particularly that part about "don't shoot'until you see the whites of their eyes." I kept mine closed—ori purpose. Remernbering he was • an : Indian, and- being a ; ;neat person, I brushed ^my forelock : ^for : the --scalping. Secorids-'passed .and nothing happened;' ''Slowly 'I .turned 'around! Quickly 1 turned "back. ; He -.looked bigger, standing there in a hunting suit.; and with a : 12" guage in his hands, than he: ever looked on a pitcher's mound. As I turned' back., and -as my skin turned with me, I realized for the first time what a. fool I had been to ever say an unkind ind that any sportswriter who didn't write alx>ut it would have •jeen crazy. He did say, however, that there were two sides to the •rouble the. Indians had with Vitt. lie wouldn't explain, though. "That's all over," Bob said. "We all know Peckinpaugh and we all like-him. He is a man who agrees' with us that we have the best [ club in the American League and 'can win the pennant. That-sorb 61:- spirit will help us next season." I enjoyed every moment of our talk, but I kept wanting to call him governor and thank him for the reprieve. Ugh-ugh. Nice Indians. ab °" g r ? at - ihidable, 190-pound, shotgun equipped nice person—Bob Feller. It was so obvious to me, as I "looked into the sights of that- shotgun; that Bob Feller was one of the kindest,, sweetest, gentlest, .understanding, clean cut, and all-round fine men I had ever known. I simply couldn't understand howl had ever written about him in a derogatory manner. All of these serisa.tions of mine, including jumping in and out of my skin; took but a second or two. Like a drowning man, all the bad things I had said about 27-0. last week. Russellviile spoiled 2*1 •* ^ gS * had ^ about their homecoming with a 19-0 de-' fine CIevelan d In-feat. A week later the Crimson Cy-' to a 9-0 clones held the locals score. Mustangs Score Most The Forrest City Mustangs, who help the ..Chicks haul down the season -curtain next Wednesday night, ran up the biggest score on the felines, tallying 39 -points while successfully defending their own goal line. Forced to build from the.ground "P after losing almost his entire first team, including the great J. P. Moore, triple threat star and one of the most outstanding. athletes ever developed in Arkansas. Coach Ahlf has been handicapped with an inexperienced forward wall. His charges have not to generate much of a running attack .being forced to strike through the air for most of their seven touchdowns. They have not scored against three conference foes but with the exception of Forrest"'city have kept the score down to four touchdowns and less. Shoppack, a .fleet-footed 150- pounder, and Smithers, 'tall youth who packs 170-pounds. ends; and. Richards, 165-pound center, and Left Tackle Moore, 168, arc the mainstays in the.line, while Byron Nelson, and Bill West brooks, fullback, are the boys to watch in the backfield. ^ Other probable Benton starters include: Rowland (165). tackle; Willis (150) and Holiman (150), guards; Patterson (150) and Gatlin (155), backs. passed through my mind. He spoke the first word. I was past speech. "Nice to see you. Henry. What you doing out here?" "I was dying a few minutes ago, Bob, but 'I'm., feeling a lot better how. Howya, Bob, oP boy; ol' bov oP boy?" Believe it or not, we got to chattering. He understood all about the riding the Indians took last year. Said he thought it was 'a perfect set-up for a sport.swriter Teller Is Perplexed WALDEN. N. Y. (UP) — Teller Harold Janville was taken aback When a woman came into the Wai- qen Savings Bank to cash a strange bill for. "20 dubloons."

Nov. 22—The Ford - hahi Rams met fire with fire yesterday, stealing; the aerial play from an;-mmded Arkansas to turn :in a. 27-to-7 victory before 12,500 fans. Twice in tlie first period, once in the second, and again in the third the Rams rambled over the Razorbacks' goal, and three of the scores came on passes.
