PAGE SIX BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1937 With No Conference Title Chance Locals Gun For Clean Record By J. P. FRIEND With the championship of the Rig Fifteen—emblematic of supremacy in the stale—merely a matter of formal awarding to the Pine niuff Zebras following Ihelv one point decision over the Little Rock Tieers in Pine Bluff Saturday, the undefeated and untied lilythcvllle c:hicka«nvs have only the consolti- • lon 'vet lo be won) of going through Ihslr fourth consecutive schedule without defeat to look for a.s Lhev begin preparations for their nrinunl clash with the Jonesuoro Golden Hurricane. Friday night.. Under the provisions of the conference, composed of fifteen of the leading teams In the state, the l^am having tlie best percentage at the end of the season shall be awarded the title. In case of ti tie between two or more, the team hnv- i>n played the most conference games will be declared the champion. Pine Bluff lias already played eight games within the group and have Vmly two out of state teams before the curtain Is rung down. The Chicks have played but three and have Jonesboro and Forrest City remaining. They have beaten "ot Springs. North Little Rock nncl Hope, IOOD members. I'ost Season Game If the Tribe manages to come through against the Hurricane nnct the Thoroughbreds they have been promised ft post season game in Memphis, Saturday night following Thanksgiving. The Arkansas Athletic Association forbids further pridiron competition after that date. It is understood that efforts will be mads to secure permission to play later. The reason advanced was to help raise funds for the ' erection of the proposed $31.000 gymnasium and stadium. Application is now at Washington. D. C., and 11 will be necessary to raise approximately $10.000 locally. At least $3,000 is expecled to be realized from at least two post season games. Not a single injury or serious bruise was recorded In the Searcy game. Thursday, nnd barring Injuries during the week, the Chicks will enter the Jonesboro game in tiptop shape. Dan Warrington's condition still remains tin uncertainty. He has been able to walk for n week or more but whether he will be. ready by Friday night is n mnt- ter of conjecture. One thing is certain. Unless he Is fit Coach Diltly will not use In'rh. With Wlllard Tilley out because of an appendix operation. Jonesboro is expected to take to the air in an effort to break the BIythevillc jinx that lias reached three straight, l/owell Manning made no bones about depending on the fleet footed Tilley to .bear the brunt of the offense. Now he will have to rely on Mutt Alexander and "Flinging Fat" Pharis. English Pugilist imnr/.ON'TAi.

Nov. 15. — Stunned by the loss of their ace triple threat star. Wlllard Tilley, who underwent an appendectomy at St. Bernard's hospital Friday night, the Golden Hurricane today returned grimly to the task of. prc- pnrlugr.for Uio Invasion of Uic un- I dcfenlcd Blytheville Chickasaws here Friday night. • The loss of the "Golden Ghost" is a severe blow lo the Hurricane but Coach Lowell Manning probably will use Eugene Osment, promising youngster, in his place. He made a good showing against the Little Rock Tigers week before last. I If "Pliiigln' Pat" Plmris, another j triple-threat halfback, returns to the line-up after an absence of three weeks because of a rib injury, he probably will handle the punting nsslanment. It is likely that Pharis and Osment will pair at the H'lngbacks with Lloyd Carey «t quarterback and Mutt Alexander or Woodrow Durham at fullback. With Tilley out it is likely that the Hurricane will take to the air and much of this week's drills will be devoted to polishing up the Hurri- cane's aerial attack. The Hurricane is nlso lo get final instructions nnd drilling on new plays devised especially for the high stepping j Chlckasaws. It is an "open secret' here that Manning expects to sprinf several .surprises on the high!) touted Chlckasaws. Manning and a good number o: his boys scouted the Chicks Thursday afternoon when they plnycc Searcy. "You couldn't tell mud about them because it was too one- sided," Manning said. According u Manning the Chicks' most valuabli assets are cnd-aromid plays and i sweeping end runs. However one of the Hurricane, biggest problems will be stopping LeRoj- Drown, 200-pound fullback who does most of his ttne-phmgini through the middle; of Ihc fnnvim wall and off tncklcs. Manning indicated that i h i Chick forward wall, which scale around 200 pounds, isn't as aggrcs sive as Ihe last Blytheville line that performed in Joncsboro. He expects to give his boys sonic new plays that he hopes will get them away bora club would seek a hook-up with a higher class club next season. Jonesboro was the only team In the league without such nid ihe past season. The league voted to send representatives to the National Association of Baseball leagues meeting at Milwaukee. Officers will be t-terird at the next meeting to be held not later than February I. Hogs Alula- j. r) ,)g Joiiiijfj NORWALK, O. (UP)—Seven Poland China hogs bred by J. K.
