PACK TEN BirrHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 195B Chicks Await NLR; Paps Play Tonight <D ~*rndt 'erton Anderson's Folly - Or, How Not to Pick Football Games W« have one more week to get in a few practice licks before the Courier News grid-picks contest begins next week and our meager efforts get shown up for what they are — mental gyrations in i vacuum. So we'd better take «dvanlage of thai situation and try lo ftt a head sttrt. Our only effort last week was with the chicks and Paps and since the Paps turned out to be spectators, we could only miss one. However, Osceola cooperated and consequently we're batting 1.000 (and a they had all quit and gone home at the half like we wanted them to, we'd have picked the score on the button — 25-7.) • » • NOW WE COME into the Blytheville-North Little Bock game with l little more reservation. Both teams figure to be strong enough on any given night to beat the other. Th« Wildcats will be deeper in reserve strength, as is always the caie when Blytlieville takes on the bigger schools. But, as in the past, that li likely lo be offset by a superior conditioned team fielded by the Mosley, Stancil, Prince combine. So unless they are stricken by injuries, the Chicks should be able to count on their lop 15-18 boys going all the way if necessary. Thus it seems to simmer down to the question of spirit and de- lire. It appears unquestionable to us that the team.with the highest spirit will emerge victorious at Haley Field tomorrow night. Aid that team, we believe, will be the Chickasaws of ole' BHS ... by a score of 19-14. • • * THE FAPOOSES try to get into the act again tonight and unless Whitehaven brings another team with them we feel confident the Koldus Krew can count on getting a starting berth at Haley Field. And that means the Paps will be lacing one of the two teams which beat them last year. Whitehaven always has a good junior hlRh football program and »re tough to beat ... but we think Blytheville also has a good pro- jram going (together with some good, big boys) so we'll string mlong with Paps by 13-6. • • • A FEW COMMENTS about one more game and we'll quit. The University of Arkansas opens its 1955 campaign against Tulsa Saturday in the shadow of the tremendous feats of last year. And if you've been listening to the moans and-groans from up on the hill you'd get the idea that last year's Southwest Conference champions suddenly have forgotten all about hew to play football. The change from single wing to Mitchell's split-T no doubt has, ind will continue, to present major problems for the Porkers, but •Imply changing the system doesn't take away a boy's physical ability and desire to play football. True, the Razorbacks were exceptionally lucky in many games last year and that can't be counted on again, and they're not likely to have as good a season as last year. But we believe they'll end up at least with a .500 percentage and win at least three conference games. And they should start Saturday with a 21-7 victory over Tulsa. • « • OTHERS QUICKLY: In prep circles — Wilson over Marked Tree, Reiser to edge Burdette, Osceola to take it out on Lepanto, El Dorado over Port Smith, Little Rock over Texarkana, Tex., Camden to fell Hot Springs, Pine Bluff over Crossett and Clarksdale, Miss., over the Golden Hurricane at Jonesboro. In the collegiate battles: Baylor to take Hardin-Simmons, Florida to down Mississippi State, Mianii to nip Georgia Tech, Georgia to take the first step In removing Ole Miss' Southeast Conference crown, Kentucky over LSU, Maryland lo lambast Missouri, TCU over Kansas, Texas over Texas Tech (but not too easily), and UCLA to splatter Texas A. and M. Session Held By Chickasaws Blytheville Chicks finished their hard work yesterday in preparation for the invasion of North Little Rock's Wildcats tomorrow night and tapered off today with light drills and dummy scrimmage scheduled for this afternoon. Spirit in the Chickasaw camp It rising to meet the team's first big challenge of Uie season. "We had a good workout yesterday," Coach Russell Mosley said this morning. The boys appear to be in high spirits, he indicated. The Tribe held a full srimmage and spent some time working on defense against North Little Rock's split-T attack yesterday. But the Chicks are at a disadvantage working on defense without a B team to use as an offensive team in full-scale scrimmage. "We have to work on defense in dummy scrimmage only and can't get in needed full-speed scrimmage against the other team's plays," Mosley pointed out. Kounsavall Back Chick hopes were bolstered some, yetserday with the return of the .unpredictable Freddie Rounsavall. The senior end left earlier in the week to join the Air Force but changed his mind at Little Rock; and returned to school. Two other new boys also are out for the squad. They are Don Byrne, younger brother of another Chick candidate, Bobby Byrne, and Prank McDermott,, Both are sophomores. Tomorrow night's game is the fourth in the present series between Blytheville and North Little Rock. I The Chicks hold a 2-1 edge over the Wildcats with victories in the past two years.

CARUTHERSVILLE — Pemiscot County's two football teams, Hayti and Caruthersville, meet at 7:30 tomorrow night on the C. H .5. athletic field for another traditional rival game. The big question as to which squad will be victorious in this non-conference battle is anyone's guess with both coaches predicting their team will lose.

Last week the Paps pushed into Southeast Missouri at Maiden only to find themselves a third team in a game which requires just two at a time. Maiden had sidestepped the Paps In favor of the Piggott eleven. So the Paps unveiling; will occur tonight at Haley Field. 8 p.m. 2 CssualUw One physical casualty and one scholastic fatality are the only blows John Koldus' Paps suffered during the week. Jim Stilwell's sprained ankle has mended and he's ready to go. However, Billy Garner, who was slated to open at left guard, was found to be scholastically ineligible during the week so Koldus moved Billy Joe Harvison over to guard from tackle and will go with Ray Nelson playing tackle. With an extra week in which to polish their attack and their enthusiasm on the upswing after ast week's disappointment, the Pap§ are in tip-top shape for tonlght'i Whitehaven game. The Paps' probable itartinj lineup will be: Ends—Jerry Manley.and Dave Burnett; Tackles—Harold Pulley ' and Bay Nelson; Guards— Billy Joe Harvison and Alvie Betts, Center — Jim Bruce; Quarterback —Jan Jarrett; Halfbacks—Charles "Watson and Jim Stilwell; Fullback —Jim Pulley.
