PAGE SIT. BLYTHEVn-LE (ARK,) COUKTER NEWS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1949 tigers of Brinkley Underdogs for Tilt Here Friday Night Coach Tom Cook of Brinkley High School will bring a victory-hungry band of Tigers to town Friday night to 'engage Coach Russell Mosley's Blylheville Chicktisaws, The Tigers have played eight* games so far this season and they have lost every one. As a matter of fact, in those eight games they have scored but two touchdowns while the opposition has piled up a total of 273 points. • That's the team that will face the Chicks in their final home showing Friday night and the prospects of the Tigers ending their winless streak are almost nil, according to the expelts. CWchs nememlicr 1018 Game But to the Chicks, that record means nothing. They will remember with a shudder the situation that surrounded last year's "Brinkley breather" which was almost identical to the one this year. In last year's outing the Tigers took advantage of a mud-caked field to force a Chickasaw team that was well on its way to a stale championship to stage a late rally 111 order to save a 12-0 decision. With memories of that game flashing through their minds, the Chicks got down to serious business yesterday afternoon in preparing for Friday night tilt. After a long session In covering punts and tackling, coach Russell Mosley sent his tribe through a gruelling full-time scrimmage at Haley Field with the accent on defensive play especially, against passes. Coach Mosley and his aide. Coach John Staples divided their squad into two teams, mixing the regulars - with the reserves and staged a mock game during which several Brinkley spread and pass ; 'plays were used and the proper defense explained. Passes May Get Wider XJse At the same time the Chicks brushed up on their own passing attack which could be an indication .that the Mosley may take advantage of the situation to experiment with a more extensive pass- Ing attack. That Is, of course, provided a substantial margin can be built up. > During practices . Monday and yesterday - Coach Mosley directed most of his attention 'to the play ' of the reserves who ' have had little opportunity lo see action this year, evidently Intending' to use the scrubs as much as possible Friday night. There was even talk that Mosley would start in's .second stringers against the Tigers in order to give his regulars a rest for .the. first playoff game next week, .. but. this is doubtful. ' C. G- Redman," president of the Chickasaw Athletic Club, said yes. terday' that a preliminary game •between two teanis in the Y's 'Grammar School League Is being ; planned for Friday nighfc. This game, he said, is scheduled to start s.t 6:45 and will 'be a regular ; league contest with the opposing teams to be picked by the Y. AP Poll Picks Leon Hart as Top Lineman NEW YORK, Nov. 0.

Besides he sometimes carries the ball on end-around plays and when he snares forward passe.;. In one play of the Michigan State game Hart caught ii pass. Two MSC tacklers tried to stop him, but both were knocked flat. Hart's performance surpassed tViat ol Jimmy Kynes, Florida center, who sparked his team to ai! up.set triumph over Georgia. Two tackles, Dick Johnson of Virginia, and Jack Jennings, of Ohio State, played major roles in their teams' victories over Pennsylvania and Pitt. James '.'FroBgle" Williams, Rice end, and Rudy Ba.uman, Texas wingman, turned in sterling performances in the southwest. Wall is Elected By Cage Officials .

(AP)-Lou ZJtlle, who can explain almost everything, has his own explanation of the high scoring in football this season. . . It's simply that a coach, in picking his two platoons puts the fastest ant! best co-ordi- nated men on the offensive team. . . . "If you make one little mistake against players like that, they are gone for a touchdown," l/>u explains, . . . Little has watched the best offensive efforts of a lot of good teams while they were running over his'Columbia team this fall, . . . From that viewpoint, his analysis of two of this week's top eastern games Is ihls: Dartmouth vs. Cornell— with a few breaks for Dartmouth—should be pretty even: Army Is stronger and hns a better team than Pcim, but that doesn't necessarily mean Army will \vii\, Out of rial-Tune When Washington ami Lee was playing George Washington recently the Generals (that's W and L) drove 80 yards downfield, only to lose the ball on a fumble near the goal line. . . . Immediately Coach George Barclay sent his defensive unit racing onto the field while the offensive players trudged off. , . An uninitiated spectator behind the W and L bench then sang out: "That seems da\vgonned unfair of the coach. The team marches all the way up the field with the ball and just because they make one little mistake, he takes them all out of the ball game.''
