Hodge stopped Dawson for no gain and White recovered a pitchout fumble for a loss of four. The Zebras went to the air then but it backfired when Privett intercepted nicely on the 20 and scrambled back to the 30 before being stopped. But the seeming good fortune turned sour for the Chicks. A clipping penalty on the pass runb&cfc moved the ball back to the Blytheville two. Abbott got three, Akers was stopped and Abbott went back: to kick. The ball slithered off th« side of his foot and travelel only 10 yards before going out of bounds on the Blytheville 16. That was the break th« Zebras needed, and they converted k, to filx points on the third try with Hardister, picking his way beautifully through the secondary to score from the 10. SUm Lead The Chicks still held a slim one- point lead when Ferguson 1 ! JticM. was low and wide. But another tough break for the Tribe set the stage for the Zebras second score on the next scrimmage play. The erratic kickoff bounced craz-; Hy to Abbott who coulln't latch onto the ball and the onrushing Zebras recovered on the Blytheville 33. On the first play, a neat bit of quarterbacking sent the left end Dickie Evans wide' open in the left "We showed we can beat them," he said.

Pcnaly Helped Akers gained five to the 18 and Zebras Get Attention In Big Eight Bf RAT STEPHEN! The Associated Prow Now's the time to take a good hard look at the Pine Bluff Zebras, who are beginning to make considerable noise in the Big Eight football conference. . Last night, the Zebras capital- crushed all position. The sight of the friendly fences undoubtedly sharpened the batting eye of Campanelia, heretofore ihe hitting "goat" of the series. The robust catcher fired the opening salute against Bullet Bob Turley, the Yankee starter and loser, with a first inning two- run homer. Campanella Collared Campanella, who had gone 0 for 8 in the first two games, added a ized on two third quarter breaks to drop potent Blytheville 18-7 for their second victory in three starts this season. In their other outing, the Zebras robbed the gloss off Port Smith's reputation by tying the Grizzlies 0-0. Pine Bluff had to win last night, or see their chances for capturing the Big Eight crown grow mighty dim. The Zebras showed they had the heart to make the most of some good luck and come from behind. Tigers Rout Trojans Defending Big Eight Champion Little Rock opened its title defense by routing outmanned Hot Springs 41-0 and Wildcats Fort Smith slammed Subiaco 31-6 and Texarkana dropped its second game to an out-of-state opponent, Fair Park of Shreveport, 39-7 in non-conference contests. So far, Pine Bluff has displayed a well-balanced attack featuring the running of halfback Rex Hardister and the passing of Bubba Ferguson to a pair of fine ends Jim Benton Jr., and Dickie Evans The offense didn't fail the Zebras last night when they got scoring opportunities. Hardister tailed the Rock 27-6 games. first touchdown on a 10-yard run after Pine Bluff got hold of a poor Blytheville punt on the Chicks' '20. On the following kickoff, Pine Bluff picked up the loose ball, and El Dorado's relentless j Ferguson promptly pitched 33 humbled North Little j yards to Evans. That was enough, in other conference; hut fullback Royce White added an' other Zebra touchdown on a 75- yard jaunt in the fourth quarter. 70-Yard Drlvn BIythe vii)e scored in the first Chicks. Jones on a keeper got six. Akers got three and Jones on a i ad four and ' " rst ^•" The Chicks tried to go through the air, but missed twice and Abbott kicked 45 yards to the Pine Bluff 30. Preston moved 15 to the Blytheville 45 and a first down but Hall picked up a furnblfi on the next play to give Blytheville possession as the clock ran out.

Yank Starter Sour* For the first time in the lerlet a Yankee starter went sour early when ihe Brooks banged Turley for two runs in the first and, after the Yankees had tied the score in th* top of the second, roared back to get two more and chase Bull* Bob to the showers. Turley, who finished with a 17-18 season slate, hit a batter, walked two and forced across a run with a pass in the second.

"He sure fooled me," said Mow- arri sheepishly. Robinson was magnificent. M« proved to be just the spark ttve Dodgers needed. "I must admit I had a pretty good day for an old, gray and fat man," he laughed, "H certainly was one of my most enjoyable days." Casey Stengel, the grizzled Yankee manager, said of Robinson: 'Always Expect Something;' "You've always got to expect something of that man. He can beat you so many ways. You've got to watch him all the time." 0 La., Over Shawnee In District Game Southeast Missouri Portageville 19, Chaffce 19 Hayti 32. East Prairie 0 Caruthersville 21. Dexter 7 Sikeston 34.
