COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1040 Crawfordsville Trips Altheimer, 31-18, Claims Title Blytheville Sees first Free Scoring Style 6-Man Game Crawfordsville laid claim lo the .state championship in six-man football after plastering a 31-18 defeat on the rugged Altheimer team at Haley Field last night. It was a benefit game sponsored by the Blytheville Kiwania Club for the Community Chest fund and afforded most loca! grid fans their first opportunity to see pec-wee football. Razzle-dazzle, broken field run-* • ning, laterals and forward passes appeared to be the essence of the six-man game as it is played by many smaller schools in Arkansas since the game was developed several years ago. There were few punts, and few occasions when they were needed on the comparatively j ..'narrow,. 80-yard long field. There were.- less of the bniisini? power plays that local fans have been accustomed to. There wasn't even n water boy!. 'The Crawfordsville players called ' for a drink once during the contest and a comely miss in white sweater and skirt skipped prettily out on Ihe field with a bucket of water . . . and Today's Sport Parade By HKNRY McLEMOR* how those boys went for that water bucket!

There are so many things to be done, yon know, before the slate con sensibly begin its exodus to the land of sunshine and roses. There are dark glasses to be purchased, bathing suite to be darned, aunts to be brought in to take care of the children while the familv is gone, sand pails and shovels to be readied for an afternoon at Malibu Beach, and new 'and daring plays to be designed and sent to Conch Biff Jones to use in emergencies against Stanford.

(UP)—The j 1940 football campaign reaches tin 1 ! end of the trail today with Stan- j ford, Tennessee and Boston College, ' all driving toward New Year's Day bowl games, risking their perfect records for the last time. If all triumph—and the odds say they will—then they'll join Minnesota and Lafayette as the only major teams to go through the season without defeat or tie. With the Texas Aggies removed from the Rose Bowl running because of their Thursday defeat by Texas, Tennessee and Boston College have a chance to go to Pasa! dena even though Stanford is reported to favor Nebraska. And if Stanford decides on the Cornhusk- ers. I hen B. C. and Tennessee would ' make a natural for the New Orleans Sugar Bowl.

Plonr walkers directed you to the sock nnd carter department instead of the garden hose section you asked about, in their anxiety over certain ineligibles on the Cornhusker squad. The railroad office answered a hundred questions concerning rates to California, including family ones and ones where six would sleep in an upper berth and ask for no extra covers.

It's nice work if you can get it, and for rates apoly -to Prof. Billy Conn, General Delivery, Pittsburgh, Pa. Prof. Conn began with the rudiments of the left jab. worked into the technique of footwork, demonstrated the left hook to head and body and then wound up with a classic exhibition of how to slip across a foul punch. Savold took it. Took it for 12 long, dullish rounds and lost the decision. Thirteen thousand persons paid $31,170 to watch the boys who were gunning for a chance at Joe Louis'' heavyweight title. A wee bit surfeited by now Prof. Conn's pedagogy, they let out listless boos occasionally, because Savold had come out of the com belt with the reputation of being a killer-diller puncher. Somewhere along the line from DCS Moines he forgot the fundamental fact that he had two arms.
