New York Brooklyn quickly put out the fire. Akers, bacK j Milwaukee to pass on his own 14, was hit hard, I Cincinnati knocked loose "from the ball and North Little Rock recovered. Abbott Moves Out The Wildcats appeared well on their way to a runaway at this point but big Abbott pulled down a Young-thrown pass in the end zone and moved out to the 11 to halt the threat momentarily. Fisher took over at fullback at this point and got a couple of yards before Akers again fumbled at the 14 and North Little Rock recovered. But then Blytheville's line realized it was in a ball game and came to life. The Chick defenders stopped the Wildcats cold to take over on downs at the Blytheville 18.

Fisher and Edgmon moved out to the 10 and then Jones, on an option play from the T, pitched out to Abbott at the 12 and Abbott rambled all the way to the North Litle Kock 10 before being brought down from behind. This set up the Chicks' first touchdown. PaM Pays Fisher and Edgmon moved for four yards but right back the ball came on a five yard offside penalty. Akers tried to find end Jimmy Bratcher in the end zone but he •was well covered. Then he hit End Chuck Langston in the end zone for the six pointer. Fisher split the. uprights with his kick from placement to tie the score with the Scoreboard -clock showing 7:36 remaining in the first half. This really brought the Chicks to life. They tried a short kickoff to a lineman but it didn't work and the Wildcats got the ball on the 42, and on the next play Abbott pulled down another Young pass at the midfield stripe and went all the way to pay dirt. Fisher's kick was no good the Chicks finished out the half protecting their 13-7 margin. That pass interception broke the Wildcats' back. From there on it was Blytheville's ball, game. . .The Chicks took the kickoff opening the second -half at their own 36 and threw open the throttle on their offense. With Edgmon, Akers and Abbott nice yardage the Chicks moved to the Wildcats' one yard line. But twee they had touchdowns called back on penalties and the Wildcats took over on downs on their own four. Line Holds Worrell and Justice moved for a first down out to the 23 bu again Blytheville's line dug in and forced the Wildcats to punt. And what appeared to be a mix- up between safeties Jones and Akers got the Chicks in another deep hole. Jones apppeared to signal for a fair catch on the punt bull let the ball sail over his head. Akers attempted to pick it up and return it but fumbled at the 22 and North Little Eock recovered. However, two plays later guard Jodie Hall fell on a Wildcat fumble at the 22 to get the Chicks out at trouble. Edgrnon Scampers Then, Edgmon, after getting the first down, got away on the prettiest run of the night. With one minute to go In the period, Danny exploded inside left end, got good blocking at rnidfield, stiff-armed the last defender and appeared headed for paydirt. But he stumbled and fell into the end tone with his knee hitting the ground at the one after a 63-yard dash. Fisher tried for the TD but fumbled on the last play of the quarter and Abbott smashed over center on the first play of the final period for his second touchdown.

However, Akers put the final clincher on the drive when he pulled down Young's pass in the end zone and ran it out to the 50. Then the Chicks ran out the clock to preserve their win.

Southern Second Upset over Crimson Tide in as Many Years By TED MEIER • NEW YORK (AP) — Just about, the time Rocky Marciano was'putting the zing to Ezzard Charles in their heavyweight title bout at Yankee Stadium last night, Mississippi Southern ushered in the 1954 football season with a knockout of its own. Cockell or Valdes Next For Heavyweight King * ¥ * # * * * * * But No More Fights for Rock in '54 By MURRAY ROSE NEW YORK (AP) — Ezzard Charles has gone the way of the other 40 of heavyweight champion Rocky Marciancr s knockout victims and now it look like either England's Don Cockell or Cuba's Nino Valdes will get the chance to test the unbeaten Brockton Blasters dynamite. "Cockell or Valdes—the one who i hour Sunday with Eddie Fisher. +» brings the- most money—is next," said Manager Al Weill. Rocky nodded, his head. "It's the same to me," said Marciano as Dr. Alexander Schiff bandaged a nasty cut on the tip of his nose and patched a. cut on his left brow. None in '54 "But he ain't going to go anymore this year," said Weill. "Rocky will need plastic surgery Then we gotta consider a movie offer, a job in Las Vegas, and a European refereeing tour. For fighting next, we're going international—Cockell or Valdes." Rocky really has to look abroad for his next opponent for his eight- round knockout of Charles last night wiped out his last major challenger in the U.S. The'33-year- old Charles, making an unprecedented third bid to become the to fix that cut on his nose. Febru- j first ex-champion to regain the ti- ary? Maybe. We'll see. First we gotta leave at 4 p.m. today for Los Angeles. Rocky's on that comedy Fishermen in Florida's Big Cypress Swamp have more than fish ;o eat. They can find in the swamp more than 27 wild fruits, vegetables and nuts for their menus. The co-captains of the 1954 Michigan State football team are Leroy Bolden, from Flint, Mich., and Don Kanuth, of Paducah, Ky. bad blood is stirred all over. And in Getz, Roberts will have a good partner. Both employ the same style of wrestling with no regard to the rules of the game. In the preliminary bouts Roberts will take on Fields and Welch will meel Getz. On the same gridiron in. Montgomery, Ala. where they startled collegiate circles last year by up eting Alabama, 25-19, Dixie's newest Cinderella eleven did it again o the Crimson Tide. This time he score was 7-2. The surprise triumph over an Alabama team that rolled up 16 irst downs to 3 and gained 198 ards by rushing to 81, overshad- wed Stanford's 13-12 squeeze over 'ollege of Pacific and Southern California's 39-0 romp over Washington State. Most Underrated Mississippi's 35-12 drubbing of brth Texas State and Denver's 2-0 route of Colorado College also ook a back seat. Mississippi Southern, self-styled he "most underrated team in foot- all," capitalized on an Alabama ad pass to score a touchdown in he first period. Bobby Luna, back to punt on th down, dropped the errant pass rom center, and Southern took ver on the Tide 28. Four plays ater Brooks Tisdale ran 17 yards )r the TD and booted,the extra point. Blocked Punt Thereafter Southern dug in and turned back all threats. Alabama scored on a safety in the last period when tackle Doug Potts blocked George Herring's punt and the ball rolled into the end zone. Stanford came from behind to nip COP. The Indians trailed 6-12 with "four minutes left, but drove 76 yards in eight plays for the tying touchdown with Bill Tarr bucking over from the two. John Brodie ran wide* around right end for the winning extra point. The winning TD march followed Don Cornell's 25-yard off tackle run that put COP ahead. Jim Contratto, a senior southpaw quarterback starting his first game, led USC to its Pacific Coast Conference, triimph over Washington State. Three TD's Contratto threw three long touchdown passes to give the Trojans a 20-0 halftime lead, more than enough to rout State. The first TD came in the first period on a pass to Lindon Crow, the play covering 80 yards. In the second quarter Contratto whipped two scoring aerials to sophomore Jon Arnett. The first covered 45 yards and the second 40. Mississippi, ranked 10th in the Associated Press pre-season poll, yielded a first-quarter touchdown to North Texas then easily slapped down the Texans. Quarters Star Houston Patton and Eagle Day starred for Ole Miss. Patton completed the first six passes he threw ;o dominate the first-half play. Day took over in the second half as the Rebels stuck most to ground plays. Tommy Runnels of North Texas broke loose for the game's longest run—a : 61-yard scoring sprint in the last quarter.

Sports Roundup— Ez Didn't WantTo...NotReally By GAYLE TALBOT NEW YORK (AF) — Despite all his protestations, it turned out that Ezzard Charles lidn't really want to fight Rocky Marciano again. He felt the same way about it that Jersey Joe Walcott did before him, the only difference being that old Joe made known his feelings quicker. From the first time that Rocky tally whomped him on the jaw n the second round last night, Ez through, and it was only a uestion of when he finally would o down for keeps and be happy o escape the succession of bomb- ngs that were tearing him apart. Could Have Risen There was little or no doubt that he challenger could have arisen rom his knees and continued the nequal duel instead of letting leferee Al Ben count him out at :36 of the eighth round. The look n his face was one of blessed elief when he stood a second af- er the fatal tally and grinned his ongratulations at Rocky. But he would have proved noth- g by going on, and .the crowd aaitd !• eoo* Y*Ake« tU4iuxn was spared the sight of a scared selves, and that we might as well man taking a cruel beating which he was powerless to avert. After this one. it might be difficult to find a man brave -enough to fight the Brockton Rock the first time, much less get in there with him twice. No Desire At no time did the former champion show any signs of wanting to slug with Rocky the way he did in their June thriller. In place of the. man who Joined only three months ago in producing one of the gveat fights of heavyweight his- quit hoping. Ez talkec" a fine return fight, but it must have been that the terrible blows he ab- | sorbed from Rocky in their first j 15-rounder tooTc a toll that even he j did not realize until he saw the ! mighty brawler coming at him i again last night. j We gave Ez the first round byj a narrow margin, though realizing By THE ASSOCLATED PRESS The Big Seven race shapes up as a slightly altered picture after a round of rain-spattered football games. Except for Pine Bluff, the powerhouses either got beat or saw their sights fall short. El Dorado, the dopesters' choice for a high finish, took a shaky 13-6 victory over Fort Smith in last night's only Big Seven conference game. Tigers Stall North Little Rock's Wildcats got beat 20-7 in the rain by a high- riding crew of Chickasaws from Blytheville. Across the river, Little Rock's Tigers couldn't find the ignition key on their offense and one costly miscue cost them a 2-0 game to Texarkana, Tex. Camden smothered Hot Springs 38-0, Pine Bluff beat Jonesboro 21-6 and Texarkana beat Norman, Okla., 26-6. A drizzling rain throughout the game undoubtedly hindered El Dorado's galloping halfbacks, James Mooty and Bobby Bates. But the Grizzlies made more of a battle of it than their thin ranks permitted them to hope for.' The Grizzlies, short on veterans and poundage, are the pre-season choice to finish the season wrestling with Hot Springs for the bot- iom rung. Error Hurts Fort Smith opened the scoring in :he first quarter. After moving to ;he three-yard line, a backfield aobble sent the slippery ball bounding into the end zone, where guard Larry Reed pounced on it for a touchdown. Lamar Drummond evened the score with a short plunge in the second quarter and Bates scampered 35 yards for the winning TD later in the same period. A mental error cost Little Rock its game with Texarkana, Tex, Jimmy Martin watched a Texarkana punt sail into the end zone. Instead of letting it corne out to the 20 as an automatic touchback, he elected to run. He .got caught in the end zone by Kenneth Green. Chicks Come Back The Little Rock offense, usually well-oiled and versatile operation, didn't get past the Texarkana 35. Blytheville's Chickasaws used well-executed end sweeps and a sharp pass defense to rattle North Little Rock's hopes after the Wildcats had grabbed an early 7-0 lead. After Tommy Worrell plunged over for a North Little Rock tochdown in the first quarter, the Chicks came back loaded for bear. Pass interceptions by Charles Abbott set up one touchdown and scored another. Pine Bluff, opening its season a week behind its conference mates, scored twice on long drives and Once on a runback of a pass interception. Halfback back Bill Dawson touchdowns at the Bobby Bell and plunged end of full- for the drives. End Charlie Gibbs intercepted a Bobby Riggs' pass and ran 54 yards for the other Pine Bluff, touchdown. Riggs scored the only Jonesboro touchdown in the waning minutes of the game. The Texarkana Razorbacks, currently standing at the top of the Big Seven with El Dorado, had a- easy time with Norman, Okla., team that couldn't move on the ground. tie, went down for the full count at 2:36 after absorbing, a withering barrage from the bleeding and beserk Bomber. Too Late Down for the second time in the round and for the third time in the one-sided tussle that lacked the drama of their June original, Charles just managed to get on his feet after Referee Al Berl had tolled "ten." There were many in cthe crowd of 34,330 at Yankee Stadium who thought tbat Ezzard could have beaten the count if he had given it the real college try but the gallant champion said "I don't think so. He was dazed." "I was groggy but I still had niy senses," said Charles, who was virtually unmarked and looked more like the winner than the loser. "My gloves weren't touching the floor. I could have gone on fighting if they had let me. I think in two rounds I would have beat him. He was cut pretty bad." Not Repeat Maybe Ezzard's handlers thought so too, but nobody else did. This wasn't like their suspenseful first fight three months ago when Charles got off to a big lead, chopped a wide gash over Rocky's left eye in the fourth, and had a~chance to win as late as the 14th round. This was a one-way battle after the first round. Charles tossed left hooks and short rights to win the first round—the only one he received from the three officials— but in the second the charging, bull-like Marciano took command. The strong, driving champion whacked three solid rights to Ezzy's body and then bombed the Cincinnati Negro with a right to the head that floored Charles for two. Staggered Charles was staggered repeatedly thereafter but it wasn't until the eighth that he hit the deck again. He went down for two again from a series of rights and then crumpled for keeps after a full- scale bombardment. The second round was the key one according to Marciano and co-trainers Charley Goldman and Allie Colombo. "It was a right to the heart that did it." said the 30-year-old king, "I could hear him grunt. I knew I had him then and it was just a matter of. time. I figured I'd get him before the 10th. After that shot to the heart, I dropped him with a right-left-rght combination. A right dropped him first in tile eighth and then I gave him the same right-left-right combination to stop him." Carulhersville Wins Another Tigers Gain Revenge for Loss of 1953 Dixon Dashes Fell Burdette Runs of 70, 60 Yards Turn Trick KEISER—Two touchdown dashes by Keiser's all-state back, Bobby Dixon, proved the difference here last night as Chalrey Sims' Keiser Yellow Jackets won over Harold Stockton's Burdette Pirates 13-6 in a very close football game. Dixon's first-quarter dash of 70 yards came after Keiser had been handed 20 yards in penalties which pushed them back to their 30. Burdette, which fought doggedly throughout, came back in the middle of the second period and plugged away ro the five, from which point fullback Jon Payne plunged over. It was in the middle of the third that Dixon added the icer. Wth the score tied 6-6, he broke loose for 60 yards and the final tally. Burdette entertains Trumann next Friday. HAYTT — Canithersvffie's Tigers picked up their second successive win of the year here last night as they overcame the Hayti Indians 16-0. ; : Two safeties and a pair of touchdowns figured in the scoring. Caruthersville got its first points in the first period when a Hayti pass from center went over the: head of a Hayti back and out of the end zone. ' . • •• That 2-0 margin still stood st halftime. . : . • In the third the Tigers scored twice. Louis Cook took a pass from. Quarterback Bob Bartholomew and went 28 yards to cork a 72-yard march. '-; : Don Lay, Jim Lesley, Dick Mo Gill and Bartholomew set up the" scoring play. - Seven-Yarder McGill ran seven yards to score-. the other TD. His touchdown dash followed a 58-yard advance with, McGill being joined by Cook and Lesley in advancing the ball. - In the fourth, Hayti recovered & fumble on its own three only to. be set back .into the end. zone" 6a another safety. Thus far, Caruthersville' season has been one of revenge. They avenged a '53 loss to Portageville with a smashing' triumph last week. Last year, Hayti handed the Tigers a 25-0 lacing. . York Hughes, regular Tiger Halfback, and top back of last year's club, was out of action last night. He injured a knee last week against Portagexolle.

Shawnee's moment of triumph. was brief. The Indians, on the first play of the game, opened a hole over lefr. tackle through which Jerry Stacks sailed and then outran the secondary to go 84 yards and a touchdown. From that • point onward, it was all West Memphis, which fields one of the largest ball clubs in Arkansas.
