BLYTHEVII,L1 WEDNESDAY, OCTOEEK 8,1955 Chicks to Play Malvern; Meet Tigers This Week The Scoreboard The prospect of two consecutive open dates following this week's Whitehaven game for the Blytheville Chickasaws has been averted by scheduling of another home game for the Tribe, Coach Russell Mosley announced this morning. Mosley said he had been able to f get a game for Haley Field Oct. 14, | Friday week, with Malvern of Dls-1 trict 3AA. That will give the Chicks a nine-game slaie with one more open date remaining Oct. 21. It will be the sixth home game for Blythe- ville fans this year. The Chicks were working in "wet, muddy weather this week in preparation for their game Friday night with the up and down Tigers at Whitehaven. This will be the first road game of the season for Blytheville after three home quarrels have resulted in a 2-1 record. Unpredictable Little can be anticipated as to what to expect from the Whitehaven team, except the fact that the squad will be large with probably a distinct weight advantage. The unpredictable Tigers were nipped by West Memphis early in j knee injury. the season but since then have turned in some top performances against other Memphis teams, particularly always-tough Southside. knee injury also plagues Jimmy Earls, one of the four top ends for the Tribe.

Neither has done any run' The Chicks ended heavy work with a scrimmage session today. Blytheville picked up one oi the Carpenter Set To Start In Baylor Game FAYETTEVILLE. Ark. (AP) — Halfback Preston Carpenter was running with the first unit in practice here yesterday, leading to speculation that the injured star will start against the Baylor Bears at Waco Saturday night. Carpenter missed the first two games with a knee injury and played with the second unit in the Texas Christian game. He still has a bandage on his left leg, but he aeemed to be running at top speed for the first time. Although Ronnie Underwood has proved a capable replacement for Carpenter at right half, the turn of the Muskogee, Okla. star is expected to add strength to the Razorback ground game. He wall be running with quarterback George Walker, fullback Henry Moore snd left half Joe Thomason. Weakened at Center However, the Hogs will be weakened at center for their second con- ffV World's Finest Bourbon ference contest. Oren Culpepper, second unit center, injured an elbow in the TCU game and will not be able to play against the Bears. Jerry Ford has been out all season and may not be able to get in a single down this year. Harold Steelmun has done a fine Job at that position, with Culpepper backing him up. Steelman's substitute will be Jay Donathan, a husky sophomore who seems to lack only game experience. The Rafcorbacks worked on pass offense and defense and then worked on offense and defense in scrim' mage. A vain that lasted until 3 p.m. made the footing slippery. Coach Jack Mitchell said that the Arkansas defense would get special attention this week in view of the variety of offensive plays used by Baylor. "They use flankers, and they split their ends," Mitchell said. "It takes a lot of defensive adjustment and that's what faces us this week." The Bears use move of the tight T type of offense than any team the Porkers have faced. Baylor has excellent runners in Del Shofner, Reuben Saaga and Weldon Holley. The Bears completed 15 of 28 passes in losing to mighty Maryland last week. The Bears have averaged 25B yards per game in total offense. The Razorback Freshmen held their final full workout yesterday before their opener with the Southern Methodist Frosh at Texarkana Thursday night. They will leave for Texarkana Thursday morning. Connie Mack Set For Hip Surgery PHILADELPHIA l!Pi — Connie Mack is scheduled to undergo surgery today to help heal a fractured hip suffered in a fall from bed. The 92 year old Mack, former owner and manager of the Philadelphia Athletics, now Kansas City's baseball club, has been in Presbyterian Hospital since the fall five days ago. His condition was described as "still satisfactory." Chickasav/s Remain In Fifth Place Despite last Friday's loss to Pine Jam** Privet* . . . Speedy Halfback Texas Pins Hopes On Clements' Arm AUSTIN, Tex. <*P)—Joe Clements, Texas' passing sensation is ready to go and the longhorns will journey to Dallas Saturday with the idea of Stopping the longest winning streak in college football—21 straight owned by Oklahoma. Clements, knocked cold early in the last week's game with Southern California, has fully recovered and the Sooners may expect a shower of passes. Coach Ed Price of Texas said he thought his Longhorns had a chance of winning the game and that his players, despite the fact they have lost two games out of three, were going to Dallas expecting to win. There's one thing certain, Texas will have one of the best conditioned teams and it'll be as tough in the last half as the first. Typical Team Price said his scounts found that Oklahoma was a "typical OU ball club—a strong running team that can throw, loo, if necessary." They found Tommy McDonald, the halfback who ran for two touchdowns and set up another against Pittsburgh last week, to be outstnad- ing; quarterback Jimmy Harris and halfback Bob Burris to most capable, and the Oklahoma line powerful .

It gave him the national leadership in total offense but he lost it last week when he was able to try only one pass against Southern California. 30-17-2 Record Back when Texas was beating Oklahoma so often there was agitation for moving the game from Dallas to a home-and-home basis. Bobby Layne was the scourge of all Sooners. The year Layne finished U p—1947—was the last time for Texas to beat Oklahoma except in 1951.

Behind Blytheville in the top ten are Texarkana, North Little Rock, Jonesboro, Smackover and Benton. Jonesboro moved up from 12th after its 27-7 win over Newport.

Caruthersville Battles Cape Girardeau Friday A sandbagger is a player who is not helping to any great extent. To sandbag is to go -along for the ride. Flame out is power failure. Slowing up is putting' down the flaps. When you buy the farm you are guilty of a serious error. You have lost the ball or been thrown for a loss. So now you understand that a cadet who assumes the take otlj position, blasts into a bogey and gives him the afterburner is merely taking his stance, charging into an opponent and turning • on an extra amount of effort, to drive him back.

Although the Cape Tigers have made a poor showing thus far this season. last year's 28-6 victory for Caruthersville was the first time for the Bootheel squad to defeat Central High in 25 years. The tough Sikeston Bulldogs will invade Kennett while the other lop Big Eight conference contender, Charleston, will have a rest after racking up three conference wins. The conference game will probably be Sikeston's third win and Kennett's third loss. In the only other Big Bight battle, Poplar Bluff's Mules entertain the Jackson Indians at Poplar Bluff.
