PAGE EIGHT BI.YTUEYII.LE (ARK.V COURIER NEWS Tl.'KSDAT, OCTOBER 4, 195S &5u Cie y ._/ 'gorae _xv> a Chicks Learn Tough Lesson From an Old Nemesis Tt was a tough le.-,*cm to Uie, especially at the hands of their old wmei's Pine Bluff, but i'ie Chicks learned Unit you can't give a good u-a'm like the Zebras a break aid not have it turned against you. Ind that's the my it's going to he from now on when <he Chicks m «t other Big EiBht foes - bo'h 'his year and In future years. When you can count or. scoring three or lour touchdowns your^el., you can ma--., a few mistakes and not get beat But when you're playing a rugged outfit whose personnel is as good as yours - and deeper ta reserves - you can't make mistakes . . . because they aren't g °"The°'zebra* didn't make any, and Ihe.v won Friday night on Chick: errors. True, they made their own breaks for the most part, but not by superior ability, or wits . . . Only by deeper experienced reserve strength. They didn't two-platoon anymore than Blylheville did, but after the rusec<i first half, they were able to rume in with some strong fresh reserves nearly comparable to their first strinficrs. BLYTHEVILLE HAD played a tremendous first half in as rough and rugged a contest as you'll see on any high school gridiron - and rougher than many viewed on college fields. They had played then- hearts out and were Winning, when suddenly they were in the hole. The gruelins pate had taken its (ol! on Tribe front-liners in the first half, and despite their superb condition, they ivere so exhausted that mistakes were inevitable . . . And there were no reserves who could be counted on to plug Hie sap and provide rest periods. It's notable that al! three of the Blylheville fumbles recovered by Fme Bluff came in the last half. The delensive pressure of the Pme Bluff line, admittedly, was terrific and often forced the Chicks to fumble, but here again, it was Ihe greater size and strong-reserves that made it possible to keep up that pressure throughout the game EXCEPT FOR ABOUT three plays, the Chicks played their best gome of the season. Their potent ground attack moved the ball well, though not for any long breakaway runs. The Zebras' big line was tough to handle, but for the mosi part the Chicks were able to punch through for short, steady gains. They were exceptionally effective on picking up first downs with one or two yards lo go on fourth. Abliott behind fine blocking in Ihe line repeatedly kept Blythcville drives from stalling on fourth down. But some big ends wtio had been well indoctrinated in defensing Blytheville's outside plays, particularly ihe quarterback option on tiie splil-T iorced the Chicks to get their yardage where it's tough through the middle. They used a 5-3-3 defense that often melted into an 8-3 with effectiveness. BUT DESPITE Pine Bluffs bigger squad, greater team speed and more depth, the Chicks were in the game all the way and actually out played the Zebras in the statistics department - but you still don't win games on statistics. It was a. (treat learn effort by the Tribe and would have been a great team victory except for letdowns al * lew critical points . . . B.,t that's what happens when ymi'r« playing the big boys - if you let then, they'll force you to make mistakes, and then they'll beat you with them. Personally we'd rather see it that way and take a cnance on winning our share of them ... and we're convinced we will. PINE BLUFF lias always been Blythoville's toughest foe. The Ze-brus hold a big edge over the Chicks thvovigh the. years. In [act, Biythcvillc has beaten them only twice. Last week's win was Pine Bluff's Will victory over the Tribe. One game - in 1348 - ended in a tie. "lylhevillr's lasl win over the /.rbras cami- hi 1941. That score was 1Z-7. The other time lilytlieville lopped I'ine Bluff was in 1910 by a score of 14-13. That was the year Blythevillc was named slate champions. The following year the Chicks also were slat.- champions though the Zebras edged Item M-lll. The series, since its inception in 132(1 has presented rough and rugged football. Three have been decided by one point and three more by a touchdown or less. Most one-sided contest was the Zebras' 58-0 conquest of the Chicks in the war year of 1944.

IRISH SWING— i Noire Dame's finest Yogi Catches, Bats His Way Into Headlines But Wonders Why It Took So Long At .450 Pace By JACK HAND NEW YORK W — Yogi Bern must be wondering- what u fellow has 10 do .to get his name in the papers. Whiter Ford, Tomnn Byrne and Duke Snider steal the World Series headlines while Yogi I jogs along at a .450 pace. j When Ford pitches or Byrne pitches, the reporters conic nopiiv } around Berra's locker, ask in I "what was his beat pitch?". Thc\ I don't pay Loo much attention to j the Yankee catcher's nine i hits, . < It just so happens, that Yogi now has caught more world series! sanies than anybody in the long! hisiory of baseball. When he ; squats behind home plate to re-; ceive Byrne's first pitch this ait-j ernoon, it will be his 40th game ml seven -series. ] Hit in Every Ganip • Berra is the only player on either! side to hit safely in every game. I Snider was rignt up there with; him until lie had to retire in yos-j terday's game with a knee injury after striking out once. World Series play isn't supposed to count in the voting for most! valuable player. The ballots are supposed to have been made out before ihe end of the season. Bull most of the Yanks will tell you! privately that Yop;i should get the biij prize for the second straight year. With Mickey Mantle on the side-j lines, Berra has shouldered the; burden of batting- cleanup in Lhej Yankee order, -.-nether the oppo- j sition pitches a •ighthander or lel't-j hander. Berra caught 147 of the Yanks' 154 Annies durmy the regular spa-; son. Although he wound up with a .2T2 average, it is difficult to M*ej how Casey Stengel could have won : a pennant without him. i Injuries May fie Key Factor ig One Pastrano Nips Young NEW ORLEANS W — Willie Pastrano, who tiiki-s off weight slower than a Japanese wrestler, may have folium his last fi»ht us a hyht hfav weight last nit;ht wln-n he sh^.cd nip :, iti-rmmd UIIHruinous decision (ivt-i nidged Faddy Youn^ ot No\v York.

Tommy Byrne of New York | and vouthful Johnny Podres' of Brooklyn, carried the World; Suies hopes of their rcspec-j |tive clubs today as the Van-! koes and Dodgers came to j I "up'' in the seventh and de-j judmo game for the champion-1 ship of the world. | The pendulum, which has been' u i_, a°" back atici fonh. firsi fa-; j m*, one team then the other.] i ni'fK" had swayed toward r,he innkees, in quest of their 17tn. -.vorld title.

"I'll have pvcrvbotiy else in the bullpen." vowed Manager Walter Alston of ihe Dodders, a statement echoed by Casey Stengel, the Yankee skipper. Yesterday's 5-1 Yankee victory, which deadlocked me classic at three victories apiece, was a stunniiiG: blow to the Uorigers in more ways than one. Not only was young Kn,rl Spooner shelled from ihe mound before he could retire two batters, but Duke Snider, the .slugging' star of the series so far. suffered a severe knee injury which forced him out of the game after only one time a't hat. Wrenched Knee The center field star, who has hit four home runs in this series.! wrenched his left knf;p while chasing :t fly ball hit by Bill Skowron i-. [lie third inning. Up 10 sever a hours before game time, it was uncertain whether Snider would be in shape to play today. Jackie Robinson was another Dodger mainstay on the doubt I ui list. He aggravated a pulled ten-; cion in the back of his left foot and' the injury slowed him up perccpsi-j "oly yesterday. ; Alston opuiiiiriiicaJlv expected! Snider and Robinson '-o play. ' "If they do, it will be the same! lineup that we started today," he[ said. "If not, we'll have to wait and see." The "same lineup" has Junior Giliiam at, second. Sandy Anioros in left. When Snider loft the s?ame.; Anu,:'us moved over to center, j Giliiam to left and Don Zimnicrj went in st second. Such was expect-: ed io be the emergency lineup• today.

He said he strained his " first the fifth Scooter Concerned About DiMag's Mark le»- running inning. . "But I'll play tomorrow," said tlie hustling- outfielder, "even if I have to do it on one leg. I don't want to miss ihe big one." Mickey Mamie, the other Yankee convalescent, was not expected to piny, according to Malinger Stengel. except in a pinch hit role.

".I'm dying to keep phi vine;," said Rizzuto. "but it just doesn't seem right to break -any record: h^ld by DiMagyk). I only we: could have wrapped u up yesterday so I could have settled for a ! tie.

He pitched the finest game of the .series, and probably his best r>f the year as he handcuffed the Dodgers with four singles to record his second series triumph. He struck out eight and permitted only four fly balls to be hit to the outfield. The Dodgers'again got fine relief pitching after the game was lost, ffie third time this has happened. Ru.^s Meyer, the forgotten man of tiie start* rushed in after Skowron crashed the ball into the right field seats and blanked the Yanks on four singles in five and two thirds innings.
