Hot Springs, by virtue of Its 14 lo 0 triumph over Pine Bluff Thanksgiving day, lias bsen awarded the best claim to ihe state title by football-enthusiasts In the central and western part of the slate despite the fact that the Trojans bowed lo Camden. Supporters Of the chicks' claims point out that despite impressive Hot Springs triumphs over strong teams the Trojans failed to go through their season with an unblemished rceqrd and have, at the most, no better claim to the state title than the Chlckasaws. While no elforl has been made to bring the Chicks and Trojans together In a so-called "tllle game" It Is possible that a formal challenge to the Hot Springs team may be.Issued m behalf of the Chtcka- saws. It is no secret (hat the members of the undefeated Chick squad would like the chance to face ihc Trojans, say on neutral territory at Pine Bluff, Little Hock or Joncs- boro or possibly even in Hot Springs as for that matter. No official .statement has been forthcoming from school officials, however, and what •attitude would be taken toward such a game, oven in the event it could be played,' Is Jiot known. In winning 10 consecutive games to become v,hal. Is said to be the first team in the history of Blythe- Mlle high to turn the trick, the Chicks hnie scored 29-1 points to « for ttielr opoonenls. The locals have presented three serious candidates for mythical all- state selections hi Tlpton, end, Pur- • tie, center, and .\fosley, quarterback Hardly any distance behind in a bid for mythical honors is Lind sey, a guard whose sensational play has stood out all season. It is'veri possible that one of the quartet mentioned may be selected on one or more all-slate selections.
