But in spite a! their injuries the Chicks' spirit- has been high nil week. They looked belter than usual in practice scrimmage this week, especially on defensive play • and blocking. Assistant Coach Johnny Staples, who scouted the Srnackover-Hope game last week, reported that the Buckeroos, though small, are fast and aggressive and run from ' a tricky T formation. Their offense is led by quarterback Billy Gideons, who Staples said was the "best passer I have seen this year."
