l''UJJ)AY, NOVKRJHliii 19, 1937 BLYTHEVILLB, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS (by a shade) LIIiiEtll 10 Chicks Rank As Decided Favorites In Game On Jonesboro Field Rated ns outstanding favorites, the Blithcvlll; hljli school chlch- asaw.s. one of Arkansas' two major undefeated and untied football teams, meet the unpredictable Jonesboro Hurricane at Joncsljoro tonight. The clash will bring together tn-c ancient, rivals for northeast Arkansas supremacy. While the odds are decidedly on the Chicks to trim the lilack and Gold clad team, it I: generally admilt«! that the Hurricane will slagc its .strongest Ijatlls of Hie season against the hi»hl' touted Chickasavvs. now roaring tiloii" toward their fourth undefeated season, except for an out- of-statc post season loss last year. Before, hostilities got under "way ibis fall (he Hurricane was tagjeti one of the outstanding lavcrlte.s in li •; nut. Then Coach Lowell Manning's tenin surprised everybody by losing to an admittedly weak May- lield. Ky.. eleven. It, was a blow from svhich the formidable appearing Hurricane never recovered, the .Jonesbors grfdders suffering still Uirtlier defeats, climaxed by a thor- ouzh walloping by a'aout. 40 points at tlie hands of the Ultle Rock Tigers. ( However Jonesboro fans will be willing to term the Hurricane season successful if the Chicks are stopped lonighl. Inclement weather will likely cut down a crowd Hint otherwise would probably be the largest to attend a gair.c in northeast. Arkansas Ihis season although a special train will carry hundreds of Blylhenlle sup- 1- - .^ u_ii^sboro and others will molcr over. It may act- also, to slow c'lwn the running game ,oj Hie Chickasawi;. though, boasting a heavier team, it is hard to see "now a wet, field would damage the Chicks more than it would the Hurricane. Blytheville's starting linc-un will likely include Roberts ami Wamng- ton at the \vii:gs, Wise mid Justice at the tackles, Moody and Burton at guards. Godwin at "center, Meredith at quarterback. Bosharsn and Mosley at the halves and Brown at fullback. The Hurricane will take the field with Black and Earringer at the end post.?, Drcher and Pemberton at tackles, Rhea'and Mccarty ill guards.

KV HAURY GKAYSON Sports Keillor, NBA Service That much ado about nothing much at the University of Michigan only Indicates that proselyting alumni should know their schools. Before hustling a good football ! team, old grads, unable to tnke it | ! and Iris impatient, to permit nature tn take it.s course, first ought to make sure that their dear old alma maters want a first-rate club ob- ' tained in that fashion. i Certainly, young football players ' should not be humiliated after being rushed by enthusiastic alumni to colleges not Iheir natural choice. Tom Hnnnon of Gary, Ind., and two or three boys from Kiski Prep School were so outstanding among Michigan freshmen that their presence slatted reports of subsidization. Tills may have been' due to Ibe scarcity ot topnotch prospects at Michigan for the last four seasons. *ny* ay, it seems that young Harmon took exception lo the rumors, and sought to make it char that Michigan wasn't the only j place where he could have obtained his higher education. • Harmon flashed a telegram from Bill Bcvan. former Al!-American Biiiird at Minnesota now coaching the Tulaue line, advising him thai "our offer still sltinds," and tha 1 "vour helrj nt n simcn-pure schoo! always will be subject to criticism." There Was Considerable Shopping tor Harmon The Michigan Daily printed n nhotonwrnvlng cf the message, and quoted -Harmon as saying that be fore entering the university la* 1 fall he had "offers" from five Bis T?n schools and several other leading colleges. The paper named Purdue, Illinois. Indiana, Chicago, Northwestern, Alabama, Louisiana State, Yale, Princeton, Southern California, Pittsburgh. 0 o r n c 11, Washington, nnd Michigan State. There undoubtedly was considerable shopping, bul Harmon landed at Michigan. A four-sport man at Gary, Ind., Harmon a year ngo was described by Fielding H. Yost, veteran Wolverine athletic dircclot.
