Grizzlies, Zebras Head Prep Slate By BAT STEPHENS The Associated Press Ever since the Little Rock Tigers started fading like a $1.98 shirt, a lot of speculation has centered on Steed White's surprising Fort Smith Grizzlies as a possible new power in Arkansas high school football. White's team has demonstrated a fine attack, an excellent defense, and the competitive spirit to come from behind in its two victories to date. Fort Smith crushed Memphis Tech in its opener, and then took a 14-13 decision from Jim Mooty and his El Dorado mates. If Fort Smith's dangerous duo of Paul Alberty and Darrell Williams can lead the Grizzlies over Pine Bluff in tonight's headliner, they may well be on their way to the Big Eight championship—the biggest prize in Arkansas for a high school team. Long Road Ahead Port Smith still has a long, rough road over Blytheville, Texarkana, Hot Springs, North Little Rock, Little Rock and Pine Bluff to reach the crown. But there's no doubt that the Grizzlies have been by far the most impressive in early contests. Pine Bluff was disappointing in whipping Crossett last week in its opener. The Zebras had been figured to enjoy a mild night with the Class AA club, and ended up having to put forth their best foot to take a close victory. However Pine Bluff has been a tough team too long to write it off on the basis of one performance, and the Zebras are plenty capable of severely damaging Fort Smith's rep utation tonight. Hot Springs vs. Benton The Big Eight's "sleeper," Hot Springs, moves Into Benton tonight to seek its second win after 22 loses and a tie over the past three years. The Trojans broke their long drought last week by whipping Camden another Class AA team, and tonight they could take vengence on another team Are You Planning a Cocktail Party?

Little Rock, loser of two straight games to out-of-state foes, meets another this week, and there's a good chance that the Tigers will drop No. 3. Istroluma of Baton Rouge, regarded as Louisiana's top prep contender, will invade Little Rock for the contest. North Little Rock, which fell to Blytheville last week, meets Camden, and Texarkana plays Longview, Tex., in other Big Eight games. Blytheville has an open date.
