Four Blytheville cl\ r ic clubs, the Jaycces, Lions, Kiwnnls, and American Legion, along with the Chamber of Commerce, were represented at last night's meeting and heard plans for the sponsoring of a team, to work independently, discussed by Mr. Saliba. Finance Plan Frescnled Mr. Saliba pointed out that It would take approximately $8.000 to get a Class D team hi operation here and presented the following plan for raising of the funds. His plan is to sell between 10.000 and „ 12.000 tickets to the opening game |J)at SI per ticket. These tickets, he '" explained, would be for the open- Ing game but would carry the provision that If a purchaser could not attend the opening game, then they would be recognized at any home game during the first season. "If this Is done." Mr. Saliba pointed out. "we could use the money to start on. and then utilize the gate receipts and other promotion ideas to meet the second half of the S25.000 that will hc needed for the operation of a Class D club for one year." "It Is not our plan to asK any of the civic cluhs or anymie else for an outright cash donation." Mr. Saliba snlrt. "All we are asking Is that everyone cooperate." The plans also call tor each civic club of Blytheville to be represented on the board of directors of the baseball team and after each club appoints Its representative, officer will then be elected. Mr. Saliba further pointed that such a club In Blythcvillc could operate more successfully as an independent rather than through affiliation with a major league team. ."I have been advised by major league scouts and 'other officials that this Is the best plan because should Blythevlllc come up with a af'Class D player that is destined to '"go up, then we could sell that player for cash, whereas If we were affiliated with a major league club then that club would have automatic draft righfs on the player" Missco Has Player Prospects Mr. Sahba stated that he had also been advised by several big league scouts that there were a number of young players who have been looked at or signed by big league teams and who cannot be farmed out because these teams have already reached their tpiota and that Ihese boys could be utilized by such a league that Is being proposed for this area. r" C v' SO s , tal i d that he n °P otl spv - Mississippl County Trumann there. fiei.s underway.

Mr. Taylor '' tllc meeting that Ihe pfans Four Horsemen Ramble Again at Irish Celebration SOUTH, BEND, Ind.. Nov. 20. <»•> -Notre Dame's tamed four horsemen rortc again last night—through uproarious crowds gathered to wish tllLni well on their 25th reunion They and 10 teammates ol Knute Rockne's unbeaten 192-i squad were to climax their homecoming celcbra- tlo ntoday at the Notre Dame-Southern California game. The glorious backflctd of a quarter century ago—quarterback Elarry Stuhldreher (now Wisconsin athletic director); Lett half Jim Crowley (a Chicago sales promotion representative); right half Don Miller (U. S. district attorney foi Northern Ohio), and fullback Elmer Luyden (Chicago transportation executive) —relived the past with the old gang in a night of merriment. All four were as cagey answering questions lor the record us they were when they ran roughshod over 10 opponents. None of them would agree that the 1949 Irish of Frank Leahy was the best team In Notre Dame history. "Let's say it's onu^>f the school's greatest teams and let It go at that " said Laj-den, as wiry now as he was as a demon 166-pound fullback. After all, that 1924 Rockne eleven will live forever in foolball lore. Chances of comparing it to the present outfit, which went after Its 37th game without defeat today weren't worth a plugged nickel during the back-slapping, frenzied festivities last night. The four horsemen and two linn- men of the famous "seven mules" were the only 1324 starters to make the reunion. End Chuck Collins and Captain Adam Walsh, center, carried on for the line.
