FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1955 BLYTOEV1LLB (ARK.) COURIER KEW» PACK ELEVEN Papooses Lose Thriller 19-18 Whitehaven Wins With Touchdown In Final Minute The Whitehaven, Term., Junior High School eleven still has its 19-game victory string, but the only thing that saved it was a touchdown in the last 30 seconds, which beat an inspired team of Blytheville Paps, 19-18, last night'at Haley Field. PULLET ROMPS — Jim Pulley, crafty running halfback for the Blytheville Papooses scored Blytheville's first touchdown in the first quarter against Whitehaven last night.

Until the last three minutes it appeared that the fighting Paps, outweighted 15 to 30 pounds per man, would present Coach John Kojdus an upset victory in the young mentor's debut. But the Paps found Whitehaven's Street to be strictly one-way when his sparkling "punt return started the victory march with a first down on the Blytheville 40.

Largest Opening Crowd Seen For Razorback-Tulsa Match F A YETTE VILLE — The largest opening game crowd in Razorback Stadium history is expected to be on hand this Saturday when the defending Southwest Conference champion Arkansas Ka- zorbacks engage the Tulsa Hurricane in a re-building prelude for both schools. It'll be the initial appearance of Tulsa's Bobby Dobbs as a head coach and General Jack Mitchell's first assignment at Arkansas, Wooed by a conference championship on. one side (Arkansas) and a renewed spirit of building on the other (Tulsa), the two teams are expected to open the 1955 season with a • glittering 1 array of split-T plays. Although each co&ch has predicted that "defense" will be King for a Day, each team has an offense which if allowed to operate can be potent. For Jack Mitchell the Tulsa game has plenty of angles. The Hurricane proved to be a tremendous foe one year ago while he was Aiding Wichita to a Missouri Val- thing like what it was when I worked with Bernie Witucki — we're in for a long afternoon," he said to his squad as they prepped for the game. Both camps listed late-hour injuries as contributing factors in the coming battle. Tulsa mentioned injuries in varying degrees for five of its hands — ranging from "probably sidelined" to "at least slowed down" versions. Left halfback Dick Hughes is scheduled to make the kickoff but has been bothered by a knee injury. Mitchell listed quarterback Buddy Benson and end Bob Childress as "unquestionably out of the game". Benson has a badly bruised right thigh that has kept him out of practice for a week, while Childress badly injured his right shoulder and is sidelined for an indefinite period. Injuries of an undetermined severity were also incurred by center Jerry Ford and halfback Preston Carpenter late in the week leaving their positions for the Tulsa game Moore's Needling Has Marciano Riled GROSSINGER, N. Y. (AP) — Archie Moore's long needling campaign has gotten under Rocky Marciano's skin. The 38-year-old ring veteran's taunts helped get him his Sept. 20 title fight with the heavyweight king but it also could lead to quick destruction for Moore in Yankee more than any fight since the first one. with Jersey Joe Walcott when I won the title." in doubt. Number two men at each of those positions would be centar Harold Steelman and halfback Ronnie Underwood, both lettermen. It'll be the 34th meeting between the two teams in a series that had its inception in 1899 with a double header. Arkansas Industrial University and Henry Kendall College (as Tulsa was known until 1918) met twice that year. They played to a scoreless tie in Muskogee in their first meeting and later on Razorback soil, had Arkansas winning, 11-0. Rugged Trip The first game was a picture of the hardships enforced upon early- day football players. An account of the tjrip into Indian Territory (Oklahoma was not yet a state), told of how 16 Arkansas players took a slow cattle-type train to near the Oklahoma line; transferred to several "hacks" that were waiting to pick them up; and finally led by an Indian scout walked the last eight miles through mud and rain to Muskogee. The game was postponed on« ley championship — losing to the i Stadium Tuesday night. Wheatshockers only 33-19. Archie's barbs have nettled him,; Mitchell labels the 1955 Tulsa team "much-improved" while at the same time listing the Wichita attack of that game "smoother than the present Arkansas offense". The result of that equation equals a tough time for the Porkers in' this opening game. Then. &^S e ^knSw^!^t!to do with this. Rockv replied: Arkansas win for the Hurricane means. "If the feeling over there is any- Rocky admits. It also has served as a stimulant for the undefeated Brockton Blaster. Rocky said he is in the greatest shape of his career, and expects to put on "one of my best fights." Asked if Moore's oft-repeated cracks about him had something "I guess so. Everything has been leading up to this. It kind of spurs you on. I think I want to win this day and played on a Friday in a heavy downpour with less than 100 spectators.
