The Chicks, If they perform ac- 'orrfrio to the only way thc game can,be "doped" on records of the two • teams, are'-' expected to trim the Lions before an Armistice Day crowd with several bands on hand to add zest to the occasion. A victory would keep the Chicks in the vacc for thc usual mythical . and much disputed slate champion- j ship honors and leave them with the Jonesboro Hurricane in their path next week and Forrest City I Thanksgiving. Both games will be I playid on foreign fields. BJyibevllle supporters, sojiiowhil I indignant over the apparently non chalent manner In which tlie Chick-; have already been "counted out" of /the "championship" race by some /ot the .larger newspapers In thc -state, plan action to put the claims of the chicks to the fore again It they go through their season undefeated. L^t year thc Chicks were generally conceded thc "championship" despite what appeared to local fans to be extreme reluctance on the part of the ''closed corporation" of certain circles to ignore them. Ignored or not, one of thc biggest v crowds of prep school history turned out in Memphis lo watch the Chicks drop a one touchdown dc- clsion to Columbus, Miss., last year in a battle for (he.unofficial "cham- . pionshlp" of the tri-states, Arkansas, Mississippi and Tcmiesce.

He l» leaving 1 that to tlie rules committee, or to any other body which may be in charge of such matters, but there arc certain points about trick plays which h e believes should be cleared Vanderbllt's unusual ptcco of deception was well set up by its quarterback, Reinschmidt. who--had taken the ball from center on one or two previous occasions mid made nice gains around Louisiana state's right end.

Moore does nol believe that he'is thoroughly competent lo judge because he never has gone in for them. L, S. U. plays all of its early home games at night, and usually there is dew which makes extra bail handling hazardous. Thc top Tiger therefore chooses to devote all of his varsity's lime nnd energy to hard blocking and running. His E<l»ads slick very closely to sound and fundamental running plays. '"nitre nre a lot, of very fine hidden ball plays by clever spinner backs and ball handlers which may be classed as trick maneuvers and which under normal conditions mas- be worked to great advantage," explains Moore; However, Louisiana state's head man definitely is opposed to hlrt!ng the ball In or around the legs of linemen arid having other linemen come out, pick it up, and run wllli it. .... In view of what happened in the Vanderbill battle, Mocrc scarcely can be blamed for that, although he can't get away from the fad that such plays occasionally pay dividends. But Moore docs not believe that such plays arc psychologically good lor the boys. 1 No Easy Way to Win Tough Football Games "There Is no easy wan to win tough football games, anil players may be led to believe that there is," he points out. "The only way I've been able to win the majority, of my games is by superior blocking and running and co-ordiimtlng a running attack with a good sound passing game." Moore wants to know if there Is any record of two regular guards of the same club scoring touchdowns in Die same engagement. Blythe Clark and John Hugh Insist Championship Claims Be Settled Upon Gridiron THURSDAY, NOVEBJIER 11, 1937 A challenge to the winner of the Pine Bluff-Little Rock fcotball game Saturday lo meet the untied and undefeated Blytheville Clucks in n contest to actually determine the state championship has hceti Issued by Chick backers through the Arkansas Democrat in Little Rock. Since the Arkansas Athletic Association of which Blytheville is a member docs not permit the playing of a post season game, il was proposed thai the game be play-d In Little Rock on the Saturday night following Thanksgiving, This would mean that both teams would play after less than two full <i a v s rest, but with the newly forme;! "Big Fifteen" conference apparently headed for another title argument since two of the three leaders have a good chance of coming through undefeated, followers of the Chicks are anxious to definitely settle the question of stale high school football supremacy. The challenge was issued by Joe Craig, chairman of a committee ot the CMckasaw Athletic Club, in a telephone conversation with Allen Tilden, sporls editor of Ihc Democrat, Tilden told Crai.; he would oljlain an answer on the proposal, but said it was his personal belief that the winner of the pine Elufl- Lltlle Rock efir.u- would not consider playing the Chicks, especially in view of the fuel that (he game between the Zebras and Tisers is billed as a "championship" alfaiv became both pine Bluff and Little Rock have engaged in more conference games than Blylhevitle. There is a possibility, however, that either Jcnesboro or Forrest City might tumble the Chicks in on e of tHrir other conference games and that North Little Rock might defeat Little Hock should Hie Tigers triumph over the Zebras. There Is i also the jjossibility that Little Rock and Pine Bluff might play a tie game, in which case each team would be charged with a half game last in (lie conference percentage column. Smith, L.

'Til piny when somebody invents a ball that won't slice." So Farrar acted. He de-signed a ball with eight circular grooves. His theory is tlial | If (he ball is struck oil cither iside, producing a hook or slice. I the ball will rotate without creating turbulent air cm-rente. The amount of hook or slice would be reduced by about 25 per cenl, Fsirar. contends. Tlifrc is. however, a calch. The tall must be teed up with (lie grooves in horizontal position. Thus, il is necessary to play win- 1 ter rules on (he fainvny, if the' player wishes to play a hookless- sllccless game. Farrar says. Driving machines have tested his ball.
