FRIEND One item of unfinished business remains on the 1940 grid calendar of the Blytheville Chicks, newly crowned conference champions. It is the annual setto with the Forrest City Thoroughbreds, usually held on Thanksgiving but moved up to Wednesday night, which will ring down the curtain on the current season. While the outcome will have no bearing on the championship, the Bildy Dynamiters have extra incentives to ride the Mustangs. A victory would partially wipe out the sting of the only blot on their otherwise perfect season, the 13-6 defeat at the hands of the Jonesboro Golden Hurricane, arch rivals, and enable them to finish the year iu a blaze of glory. The Mustangs and Golden Gang battled to a 2020 tie in their game two weeks before the Hurricane blew hot over Haley Field. Both Lost One Like the Chicks, the Thoroughbreds tasted the cup of defeat only once during the year. Coach Jack Dale's .surprisingly strong Paragould Bulldogs took Forrest City in stride during- the course of their 11-game winning streak by a score of 12-7. Both Blytheville and Forrest City had little trouble in disposing of foes last week. The Maroon Maulers clinched the title by- pslashing their way to a 25-0 victory over the Benton Panthers in the first meeting of the two schools. Forrest City scored in the first minute against Helena and went on to win. rather, easily, though not impressively, 20-13. . ..,,_.,.,,_, -Paragould vs. Jonesboro Other annual Turkey Day battles arc slated on other Big 15 fronts. Jonesboro Picks All-Opponent Conference Team For 1940 Season JONESBORO, Nov. 25.—Members of the Jonesboro High School Golden Hurricane today picked their All-opponent Conference team which includes the names of four Blytheville stars. El Dorado trailed with three nominees, while Forrest City garnered two and Li tile Rock and Hot Springs had one each. Only three of the stars were named unanimously—Monk Mosley and Bo Coppedge of Blytheville and Reese of El Dorado". Croslow of the Chicks <came very near getting every vote. The -hottest vote race came up at right guard where Atkinson of Little Rock edged out Woley of El Dorado, while Woody of Forrest City came in for a share of the votes. Dugan and Pipkin of Hot Springs drew a divided lot of votes, with Pipkin, the huge fullback, getting the most. The team agreed that he was the most damaging back they had faced. Hope was the only conference opponent shunned by the Geisers. Members of the team, although not voting for Sonny Lloyd "because he was hampered somewhat due to an injured leg in the Hurricane- Chick battle, agreed that he showed the best sportsmanship of any play- that was the 1940 football season emerges another All-America team for all the land to hail. Picked with the aid and advice of coaches, scouts, officials and football writers of the nation, the team is composed of men who fought to the last ditch in the line and of backs who didn't stop when their blockers were through. Seniors nil, the finesse that comes with the final year of college football failed to check their enthusiasm. Because of their brilliance, they were .marked men— prisoners of prestige:. Coaches sat up nights scheming how to stop or get away from them. They were double and triple- teamed, yet they continued to storm and .scale the heights until they reached the pinnacle.

Boasting strongest teams in years, the anticipated scrap looks like a tossup to be decided by breaks. The Bulldogs handily chalked up victory No. 11, while the Gcisrhen were hard pressed to down a determined Marked Tree outfit, 7-0, last week. In the center of the state LittTc Rock 'and North Little Rock command the spotlight. Riding the crest of a six-game winning streak., climaxed by a crashing 30-12 blow to Camden that knocked the Panthers from the championship picture, the Tigers will be favored to win their eighth straight from the Wildcats. Last week the 'Cats beat Hope, 14-0. Southeast Arkansas' choicest dish is the long looked-for battle between El Dorado and Camden where fisticuffs arc considered a part of the yearly get-together, Neither proved a good mudder last week. El Dorado took it on the chin from Fordyce, 13-0, while Camden was being pushed around in the rain and slush by Little Rock The hapless Hope Bobcats get a final chance to redeem themselves and get some consolation for their worst season since joining the league against Pine Bluff, another disappointment in this season of upsets.

Crawfordsville is eager to show the boys from down Pine Bluff way that Althcimer,.can be beaten and is well equipped to turn the trick.
