PAGI IIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (AKK.V COUKIER WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12. Paps Travel To Newport Tomorrow Resolved to make a better showing in their final four games than they did against Whitehaven and Jackson, Tenn., the Blytheville Junior High Papooses finished their heavy contact work last night for tomorrow night's game at Newport. Coach John KolciU6 sa id yesterday 72-Yard Run NetsCummings 12-UDeadlock The "Y" High School touch football league was off to a fast, start at Little Park yesterday afternoon as Captains Larry Campbell and Clarence Cummings led their teams to a 12-12 deadlock. After a scoreless first quarter, the Campbells scored late in the second period on a fourth down bullet pass from Tom Lum to Larry Ellis good for 11 yards and the score. They tallied again in the third period on Lum's 10-yarcl heave to James Morrow for the score, after marching' the length of the field on the second half kick-off. The Cummings cohorts got right back into the game, as Capt. Cummings received the ensuing kickoff and raced 55 yards behind excellent interference to make it 12-6. After this score, the Campbells marched all the way to the Cummings' 11-yard stripe before being thrown back to the 17 and on 4th down, Lum's pass backfired as, — .. -- Cummings intercepted and waltzed ceola. West Memphi 72 yards for the tying T.D. game here with Jac I the team's morale was high and the j boys had worked h:ird in preparing for the Newport game. The accent was on fundamentals —bloc-kins and tackling—last night as Ihe Paps ran through their last heavy scrimmage before playing Newport. After the Paps finished tuning up against members of their own squad, Coach Randell prince brought the Chickasaw second stringers to the Pap drill field for a scrimmage. Reserves Stronger The Paps concentrated on running plays in their workout against the Cllick red shirts nnd Koldus felt that his team worked well against j the defense set up by the Chickasaw r understudies. i Both Coaches Jim Fisher and Koldus see a hopeful sign in the improvement of Papoose reserves. Before last week's game at Jackson Bobby Dallas and Bobby Westbrook carried the brunt of reserve duty. ; f\t D rt ,,j. Tnninkt Against Jackson in addition to the ; I V DOUr IQnignS two Bobs. Koldus used Ray Nelson, i John Logan. Jim Kelly. Billy Sutton. Billy Nelson and Danny Morris. This total oi eight reserves used against the Cubs was Ihe most the Paps have used this year.

Interest Is Always Hi gh for Texas, Arkansas Clash; Sellout Expected FAYETTEV1LLE—By any standards the Arkansas — Texas series should not be one (vlicre t'ever-pilth interest is best served. Seldom have | the scors been close and at no time j have the,Razorbacks endangered the | stranglehold sained by the Long-1 horns from the very start, of thej ancient rivalr. in 1694. | Vet, slrangeh enougu—kimlH'd m-i '.crest is there and annually the j fondest \vislies of Arkansas fans j revolve around lhe lioepl'ul possi- j ; bility of gainint; one more win over i its neighbor state university. i ?nd in Little Rock The uvo teams will meet in Arkansas' War Memorial Stadium at j ' Little Rock next Saturday for the ! second time. It, will be the eighth appearance in the capital city in the .series history. I The first college opponent in Ar- i } kansas' football history. Texas now i ieeads in the series by an over| whelming 29-1 advantage. The lang- ] horns lead in each of the four game sues—at Austin. 16-4; at Fayetteville. 7-1: in Little Rock, 5-2; and i at Memphis, 1-0 i A small crew of 14 ill-equipped I players journeyed to Austin with I Professor-Coach John Futrall back in November of 1894. Thougr roy- ;illy entertained off the field by, their Texas hosts, the "Cardinals' j were no match for the "heavier and j more numerous'' Texans anil lost ^ 54-0. The game established warm friendships between the two schools and paved 'the way for more earn competition. Another game land another shui- out i at Austin in 1903 preceded three consecutive contests at the Arkansas campus but the most home soil meant, W the Cardinals was their first score over the Longhorns, losing 26-6 in their fifth appearance [ in 1907. | Futile Until 1933 i Texas made the series a mule one : for Arkansas until the 1933 game in Ausliii by piling up a 14-0 series count—including 11 sanies in which, lhe Razorbacks failed to score. ! Then, tor a br.ef flurry. Arkan- , sas made the most of a Texas | drought. Their first place team of i 1933 won in the Texas capito! by a | ^0-6 score, and after a single Long- liorn win in 1934—Arkansas won four straight. j The string of victories included! the first. Arkansas triumph in their , own state 16-0 at Litle Rock in 1936 j —a championship year for the Porkers), and the worst conference defeat ever inflicted upon Texas, 42-0 in the 1938 Little Rock game. The Steers from mid-Texas became so enraged at the 1S38 discourtesies that Arkansas was banished for over a decade. Texas counted 12 straight wins over the Razorbacks before an extra-special effort in 1951 ended its fury. A Governor's procLimalion, near-hysterical student, rallies and a room-full of letters and telegrams spirited the 1951 Razorbacks to one of Arkansas mast magnificent wins of all time. Texas went clown fighting. Ifi-U on the second annual Dad's Day at- Arkansas. It was the first Razorback win over Texas on the Arkansas campus in the history of the series. Turning Point Somehow or another, the IS51 uctory appears !o have been a turning point ill the series. Not that Arkansas has taken any late advantage—but Razorback teams have been able to meet Texas just as any other opponent. Only once in the past six years lias ihe game notion out of hand in fnvor of Texas-in 1952. ArkanMS has won two out of the last four snd in 1954 piled up a 20-0 lead by the haiftime at Austin. The last fiOO reserved .seats tor the Texas-Arkansas game at Little Rock were sold yesterday. War Memorial Siiiuciium Manager Allen Bere-y said that 500 special chair seats on the field would go on sale today. General admission tickets wilt remain on sale. Berry said that he was expecting a crou'd of about 35,000. Lasl year, ihe Mississippi and Rice games eaca drew 38.000. Friend Wins ERA Honors in llif Hi earned runs in 202 3,'.'l ERA.
