Porkers Face Great Passer In Texas Battle By ADKEN COOPER LITTLE ROCK (AP) — The best passer in the nation will be firing at the University of Arkansas Razorbacks tomorrow when they meet the Texas Longhorns before about 36,000 fans in War Memorial Stadium. Papooses Reveal New Class With 28-7 Victory at Newport Texas, depending on an all-out aerial offense built around sophomore Joe Clements, will be favored bv six points over an erratic Arkansas team that hasn't beaten major opponent. The Longhorns were upset by Texas Tech in their opening game but came back to whip Tulane 35-21, • and then lost to Southern California 19-7 and Oklahoma 20-0.

Unreliable on Defense Both teams have been unreliable on defense and the game could turn into a scoring spree with the | Longhorn passes matched against the Arkansas ground attack. The Arkansas ground attack features Henry Moore, an all-con- j'erence fullback last season and now ranked eigluh in the nation in rushing with 315 yards on 46 carries. Moore needs only 79 yards to match the Rnzorbaek rushing record of 1,463 yards set by Clyde Scott, in 1946-48.

D. HUGHES Company Home owned and operated Mason D«y — W»llfr n»j By HKRB DUNN Courier News Staff Writer NEWPORT — Showing more hustle and desire than they have for several weeks and employing a fine blend of power and deception, the Blytheville Junior High Paps pounded out a 28-7 decision over the Newport Greypups here last night. For the first time this season every man on the traveling squad saw action as the Paps, who held a decided weight advantage for the first time this year, swept to their second win of 1955 and their first away from the friendly confines |oJ Haley Field. In his pre-game pep talk Coach John Koldus told his boys that football was 75 per cent desire. They proved him wrong. They played as I though desire were more nearly 100 per cent of the game. Reserves Move To prove that the pleasant epi- I demic uf enthusiasm had spread to the entire team, the Pap second stringers entered the game early in the third quarter and drove to the Newport 10 before being stopped. And it was Coach Jim Fisher's shock troops who pulled the razzle- dazzle play of the evening. With Billy Nelson at quarterback, the Paps executed a perfect reverse and Mike Boyd ran for about a 20-yard gain on the play. It took the Bred-up Papooses jusl four plays to hit pay dirt the first time. Jan Jarrett ran the opening kickof! back to the Paps' 40. Four plays later alter Stilwell had fumbled and lost 10 yards, he tossed the ball to Jim Pulley on a pitchout and the speedy fullback rambled 50 yards for a score. Jarrett converted. Screen Pass Works Early in the second period right end Jerry Mauley Sell on a Newport fumble and the Paps were rolling again. After being penalized 15 yards for clipping, Blytheville, using one of its most potent offensive weapons — the screen pass— from Jarrett to Jim Pulley, drove to a nrst-and-ten on the Grey- pups' 30. Then the Paps' southpaw signal caller skirted right end for a touchdown. He went through the line for the conversion. The Paps went all the way again before the first half ended. Newport was pushed back to within the shadow of IK own goal posts after a 6-yard oHside penalty The Pups punted out of. danger and Blytheville took over. Moments later Pulley slarited off tackle and ran 40 yards to the promised land. He bucked the line for the extra point. The Greypups scored their only touchdown late in the last quarter on a long desperation pass from quarterback Dale Harrison to end Mike Buffington which carried 20 yards. Newport had shoved the valiant Pap reserves absolutely no place and so the Pups took to the air in a successful last-ditch attempt to score Third TD for Pulley The final Blytheville score came late in the last quarter when the Blytheville Papoose first string mail carriers alternated to carry the ball to the Newport four. Pulley hit the line Q^'nietV" for his third touchdown of the i \yjjij,, game and Jim Stilwell added the ' jj ett g extra point j Bruce Newport observers in the press Harvison box remarked at how well Jim Pul- Conch Koldus was all smiles in the dressing room after the game. When he could make himself heard above the whoops and hollers, he asked, "Does it feel better to win or lose?" "To win!" was the resounding answer that fairly shook the dressing room.

This was in the second Quarter and left the hatftime score 13-7. The touchdown ended a 95-yard march on 11 plays. The drive by John Martin, Bartholomew, Cook and Jim Leslie was started when Leslie returned Charleston's kick from his five to the Tiger 28.
