Following the coronation o Queen Shirley the Chlckasaws wil then lay aside their ceremonia feathers and lunge headlong into gridiron battle with the visiting .Wildcats from Little 'Rock's side. This will be the Chicks' third encounter with a Big Six team thl year and in their two previous en gagemcnts, Coach Moslcy's Trib has faired not so well. They wer trounced 46-20 by a red-hot Llttl Rock Tiger tc«m In '.he first til against a Big Six foe and in th second they virtually awarded th Pine Bluff Zebras a 20-B decision. Out to Itcr-iin rresllge The Chicks, who suffered ft 13-6 licking at the hands of an upstart Nashville team last week, will be pointing for tonight's Wildcat session. Their spirits have been high all week in spite of their upset loss to Nashville and they consider a decisive victory tonight a must for three reasons. (1) Because Probable Starting Lineups NO.

(d'J—Knute Rockne often said that a "football takes crray bounces." Every football forecaster will agree with the late coach of Notre Dame, especially this fall with upsets almost the rule, fn two weeks tills department's average has been dragged down Irom .811 to .TO3. The reason's record is 343 correct guesses and 87 wrong ones. Last week there were 58 on the right side of the ledger and 17 on the wrong side for .774. Here are this week's selections: Notre Dame over Michigan State: The Irish should win by two touchdowns from the team Michigan could whip by only 7 to 3. Army over Fordham: Two of the east's finest passers, Arnold Galiffo of Army and Dick Doheny of Fordham will be on display. Galiffa has the more potent teammates and the Cadets should triumph. Princeton over Harvard: Kaz- maicr's passes will be too much for Harvard. Michigan over Purdue: Michigan will win this with relative ease now that Chuck Ortmann is back ir shape. Tulane Over Navy TuUne'over Navy: Each has tangled with Notre Dame but Tulane has had the longer time to recover Oklahoma over Kansas Stal<; Sooners too goad for the Kansari: even if Darrell Royal is on thi bench. .California over Washington State: The spot .for an upset but Bob Celeri will quarterback the unbeaten Cnlifornians to another victory over the oft-beaten Cougars. ^ iiuv _ Texas over Baylor: Baylor is tm- exnect a tough"time tonight, is that beaten, Texas has been spilled three the Wildcats will employ the T for- times but the Longnorns are the malion which has been hard til pick. rhicks to stop all season.

(2) A victory would assure them of Bt least an even break in regu ar Season ' games and (J) a decisive mrdict Is needed to keep from losing all of their prestige in Big Six Cl Buf in spile of the fact the Wildcats are merely a step out of the Big Six cellar, the Chicks need ut expect an easy time tonight. North Little Rock, it seems, always plays Its best game against B^theville, and too, the Wildcats' record Is equal that of the Chicks, three losses against three victories. One lie game is the only difference Another reason the Chicks can Tigers fo Meet Jackson Tonight Big Eight Cellar Teams to do Battle At Caruthersville CARUTHERSVILLE. Mo., Nov. 4 —The Caruthersville Tigers and the Jackson, Mo., High School eleven wil! baltle it out here tonight to see who moves out of' the cellar in Southeast Missouri's Big Eight Conference. Both teams have yet to win. _a game in conference competition having played four each and are room mates in the league's basement. But tonight's game should decide the Issue of who is to stay as the cellar tenants unices, of course, the game should end In a draw. In all gaines played this season, however, the Tigers hold a 1-5 record, their only victory being from Portageville. They have last to Sikeston, Cape Oirardeau, Charleston, and Poplar Bluff In conference games and to Hayti in a non-conference tilt. In other Big Eight. games this week Cape Girardeau is at Sikestoii. and PeriTvllle will tackle Poplar BluH. ' Pigskin Pickings Our luck as a prognoslicator got so bad that we decided to lay off a week and see what the outcome might be. We left the guessing strictly to the experts last week and found that the strain Isn't nearly so great. But In spit of all this we couldn't resist this week so here we are with another effort. • Norlh I.lUle Kock at Blytheville—As drum beater for the Chlcka- saws we hnvc been shouting all season that the Chicks were due again this year. And they still are. A way overdue. We said after the Little Rock thrashing that the Mosleymen would re-bound and sternly promised the same after the Pine BluH humiliation. But did they re-bound? Yes. like a one-track yo-yo. But the Wildcats of Little Rock's north side are In the same boat. They haven't found themselves cither so this should be a humdinger of a battle between the yel-to-find-lls. But as « matter of loyalty we cast a worried vole for the Chlckasaws. Hot Springs lit Jonesboro—This will be another skirmish between the downtrodden. Jonesboro with a new brand of T hasn't looked too much all season but there are reports that the Hurricane has been gathering a few pointers of laic and may be strong finishers. Joe Dlldy Is right in the midst of his building program at the Spa and things haven't been so good for the old Chick professor the past two seasons. But his boys, weaned on the bitterness of defeat, should taste the blood of victory in this one. . Hot Springs, but it'll be close. Moiie at Little Rock—The Tigers all but cinched Ihc Big Six title last week and may be a little cocky for this one. But not cocky enough foi Hope to get Its hopes up over. Little Rock by 20 points. In other Courier News contest games we pick: El Dorado to run over Fbrdyce; Texarkana to ease by Fort Smith; Pine BlufT too mucl for Wan-en; Illinois to stop Indiana, Florida to upset Georgia, Rice to whip our Raimrbacks, Baylor to take Texas, clemson lo Up Boston College, Tulane to overpower Navy, Ohio State to get by Pittsburgh, LSU to take Vandy, Tennessee to stop Georgia Tech's T, Minnesota to bounce back against fov/a, Northwestern over Wisconsin, Michigan over Purdue. Missouri over Colorado, Mississippi Stale over Auburn, North Carolina over William and Mary, SMU over Texas Aggies and Southern California over Stanford.

"Hodge," said the news release, "is considered aiv extremely good prospect by Kentucky's freshman coaches, Joe Atkinson and Ermnl Allen.

NEW YORK, NOV 4—WV-As If the Boston Braves weren't having enough trouble, they're now reported having training camp difficulties . . . Last spring, you remember, they had to fly a load of meat down Irom the north and then store 11 In Tampa because there wasn't a big enough [reciter In Brandenton, pla., to hold what was needed for a hungry mob of athletes . . . NOW the slory is that they'll move lo a Sarasola hotc and transport the players by bus to the Biandenlon Field . , . That should make the Chamber of Commerce most unhappy . . .

Chicks Outwelsh "Wildcats • The Chicks, however, will hold » big advantage In the weight department, but, as proven In previous contests, this cannot be con- tidered a too Important factor.

It in the forward wall. f .that department the Chicks hold sizeable 22-ponnd difference with the Wildcat line, according to pre- game weight listings, weighing in at an even 160 pounds to the man while the Chicks will average 182.

One of the major changes In toys' rules this year Is that all quarters are to be started with a center jump. (Remember the good old days when a center jump was held after every score).' Anothci is that after the official time out with two minutes to go in the game the ball is put into play, at the center line alter each tree throw (whethei made or missed) in possession of the team that shot the'free throw . . The two major changes in girls' rules me: that a defensive playei can tie up the ball at any time. (Last year it was ruled a technical fovi for a defensive player to even touch the ball when it was being held by an offensive plnyer.) And that after every throw the ball is put Into pla; from out of bounds opposite the free throw circle by the team that sho the free throw ... C. O.
