TUESDAY, JULY 25, 1950 BLYTOEVTU.E (ARK.) COURIER Plenty of Tolent They're publicising it as the "greatest collection of young talent ever to grace a football field," and that's just what the second annual Easl- Uj£fI All-American high school football game Is going to be. The gridiron '•IBic. is scheduled for Memphis' Ciump Stadium on the night of Aug. 8 ami one look-at the lineups of the two all-star teams is enough to drive any college scout stark raving batty. Forly-clglU of the nation's top schoolboy athletes have been chosen to compose the two competing teams. They were hand-picked from the 1.20-1 prepstcrs named on last year's nil-American high school squad which is the cream of the nation's crop of young football hopefuls. These 48 will be divided into two squads of 21 each, one representing states west of the Mississippi River and the other representing the east. And they'll bang away at each oilier under the watchful eye of Alabama's Red Drew and the University ol Corpus Christi's Willie Walls, who for the second straight year, have been appointed as coaches of the East and West teams respectively. This bit ol gridiron grandeur is under the sponsorship of the Wigwam Wisemcii of America, a benevolent organisation which headquarters in Oklahoma City and it will be under the immediate direction of John Clarke> Simms, one of the nation's most colorful athletic promoters. Mosc is a football man, tody and soul, and his coaching days at Si. Mary's University and his Inivcls with St. Mary's teams have become football legend. Ho dreamed up this idea of Hie all-star schoolboy classic and through tin's he has mushroomed further into national athletic prominence. And there will be a touch of local interest in this second all-American game as Blytheville can claim the distinction of being one of the few towns or cities in the nation to be represented in both of the high school classics. Last year Denny Gentry, a smooth-working. pa c .s snar- '"•• end of our Chickasaws. played for the West squad and this year J. A. Lloyd, the Chicks' biu tackle of last fall, is destined to iee sevv^a ivn.i o.,..i.-.i Walls' crew. J. A. made the second learn of the Wisemen's All-American squad which was picked by the votes of 650 sports-writers and broadcasters from over the nation and he was se!ect-d as run of the 34 plnycrs to represent the western states. He was the only Arkansan to bn named to one of the six all-Amciican teams, tuicen others received honorable mention. f»'he playing of the all-star game in Memphis Is quite a break for the Mill-South. Hundreds of the nation' lending snorts writers and sports- f.~ t rs are to be on hand to watch the big parade of national talent and it goes without saying that just about every leading college in the country will have scouts present to look at the boys. And besides Lloyd there will be five other footballers from Mid-South high schools who will take, an active part in the name. Among these are two from the prep school lots of Memphis, Hugh Ballard. a 200-pound youngster who played a lot of end for Memphis' Tech High, and Huph Hathcock. a 185-pound Humes guard. Charles Hallum, Camden High School's sensational 173-pound ball-toter, will do a bit of running lor the West forces while Chipk King, the much publicized halfback from Paris Grove, Tenn., noes equal chores for the East. The filth Mid-Souther will be Harol Lofton, a quarterback dandy from Brookhaven, Miss. Tennessee, although cast ot the Mississippi River, will have a representative on both teams. Clauda Climer. outstanding back from Bradley. Tenn., until he lost his leg as the result ol an injury received during • football game, will act as honorary captain and \vnl hold tire ojji on extra point tries for both teams. All this plus 43 other schoolboy greats from 33 states truly makes this all-star game "the greatest collection of young talent ever to grace a football field." Sports in Spurts Bob Mullen, the former Blythcville junior Legion outfielder-pitcher who now is hurling for the Arkansas Tech nine, finished the college season with a 3-0 record In Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference play. And In addition he collected 13 hits in 35 times at bat during nine conference games for a hittipg- average ot .371. Bob was chosen on the third AI1-A1C team. . . Hottest of the late rumors is the one that says Rube Boyce, Osceola High School's ex-coach, has accepted a position as assistant to Kenny Holland at Memphis' East High. The report came from one of those "reliable sources" but there is no confirmation as yet . Bill Terry, former New York Giant first baseman and manager who new operates an automobile agency at West Memphis, has been named to (he Board of Directors of the Gator Bowl Association ... A note of encouragement to disgruntled Cardinal fans: Eddie Dyer, Cardinal man« r, has enjoyed more successes than any other National League man_ r. In his n years as a manager he has finished no worse than fifth. . '. . Did you ever wonder why sportswriters refer to the modern -day baseball as a "rabbit"? One writer explains that it's because B cores multiply so fast these days. . . Razorbacks Pull Upset; Beat Blytheville Motor men 77-76 The Razorbacks of the Razorback* Drive-In pulled the biggest upset of the City Softball league season thus far last night by edging out the Blytheville Motor Company Motormen 17-16 in the final game of a league doubleheader. In the first game of last night's make-up twin-bill Burnett Hudson's Pacemakers defeated the backsliding Ark-Mo Kilowatters easily 11-3. It was the first win of the season for the Ra^rbacks who have already been counted out of the league pennant race mainly because they lost eight straight before winning one. A. G. Mosley went the route for the Razorback; in the wild game. Blytheville Motor Company used two pitehers with Bill Hav\kins starting and Rogers taking over later. Mosley allowed but five hits •while his team mates were collect- in? 10 off t'awkins nnd Rogers. Two of Blytheville Motor's hits were homers by Young and Lipforri. It was the second straight loss for the Kilowatters in the second l^.me and their first to the Pace- ^iaker.--. Sullivan-Nelson defeated the Ark-Mo team 12-1 Friday night. Billy Dcnton pitched four hit ball for the victors while the Pacemakers were combing Jack Whittle and Blackwll tor a total ot seven. Errors hurt the Kiloivattcra 1 cause as two medics accounted for runs and two more set up tallies. Eenlon aided his own cause with a triple and single in three times at bat and catcher Lloyd K-)ontz banned out two triples in three trips to the plate. Fred Perry led Ark-Mo at the plate with a triple in three times at. bat. Another doubleheader is on the rlate for tonight with Montgomery- Ward playing Ark-Mo in the first game and the Rnzorbacks meeting the Wade Lee Cotton Company team in the second.

Judging by Ihe tight pennant races In recent years, the Phils- Pirates game could turn out to be the pivotal one In the National I.eaRiie. Stranger things have happened in baseball. The triumph was MacDonald's fifth, four of which have been over the Phils. Pittsburgh got off to ail early lead when Bob nilllnger tripled lo open the first Inntnng.
