They have ivon six of their last seven games. The Greenics twice lost lo Hul- tcrt. and v;ere beaten once by Manila before they crashed into l..c win column. Once started, however. th"y have boon as hot as u baker's oven, bowling over Mar-1 ion. Dyess i2i, Kciwr (2). and Ar- I morel. Manila spoiled their streak by trimming them again. Cased en past performance, Die Chicks must keep Iheir eyes focused on one Clarence Bolin. pint axed forward. In most of Hit games this year he has displayed keen nwksmnnsliip in loop'ing field goals. Despite being marked fifbr cue or two spurts in which he sank as many as ten fro;;! t»e lloor, Bolin has continued lo score. J. C. Pounds, his running mate, is also a sharp shooter of no mean nbilily, Earlie Crouton, center, Talmadgo Rogers and Prank Dean, guards, arc the likely starters since they have been working together. Croxlon received recognition in Die county tournament last year. Dildy announced this morning that he wonl-l probably start his shock troops but hoped to use at least two full terns before it was all over. That means that Charles "Fecfc" Hardin and Dan "Deati- I'yc." Warrington will be the forwards. Bill Godwin, center, Russell Mosley and Carl Hughes, guards. FXK seconds include Homer Bc- iiharce and Akin Justice, forwards; Jack Jenkins, center; Hugh Har- uert and James "Bab" 'Roberts, guards. Since their .opener at Wilson Tu ^ a S;.'»Bht,,in which they scorer/ iin easy' 34-21 triumph, the Chicks have been working hard and long in an elfort to iron out the rough spots that cropped out- Stress has been laid on perfection of plays as weil as snooting at long range. They minified at leasl a half dozen nice returns by missing easy shots against Hie Bulldogs. Tne offense lias been slowed down a little, loo. They broke loo fast for (heir own good, losing the ball many times because of PV- cpEsive speed. If the Maroon Maulers maintain the:, scoring pace set in the first game. Coach Dildy fech tnal they should lally at least 45 Jioinls, ordinarily enough to win. Marvin Graves will officiate,.
