OCTOP.ICU 18. 1055 (.jeoi-ge _xv«rtt crAon Still Plenty of Tickets For Hog-Rebel Festivities Here's a tip for you Arkansas and/or Ole' Miss fans who may not have tickets for this Saturday's argument at Oxford — there are still plenty of tickets available and apparently ihc game won't be a sellout. That intelligence comes second hand front Mississippi and first hand from the University of Arkansas. We talked to the ticket office at Faycueville yesterday and were imormed that [hey stil! have lots of tickets <sonic pretty good ones, LOO), and will probably have to return some of them lo Ole' Miss unsold. It seems I'niversity students aren't kipping Uiein up the way some folks thought they would. Distance to Oxford being what it is makes it a little tough on most students trying to RO to the panic. So University officials are letting them go to anyone who wants them nt $4 a crack. A phone call CO the ticket office, Department of Athletics. University of Arkansas will start the ducats on their way to you. AND A PUOXK call or letter to Die' will do the same. Information received from Oxford this morning indicates that there are still lots of reserved seat pasteboards available and can be had by calling- or writing". The game does not loom as a sellout at Hemingway Stadium, University officials said. Though this is the "big" game of the year for Ole' Miss and always one that attracts great interest in Arkansas. Arkansas' 6-0 victory at Little Rock last year, to hand the Rebels their only loss before the Sugar Bowl, has been like pouring kerosene over hot coals to O!e' Miss' players and rooters. AND TilLHE are other factors to add zest and fire to the play you'll see at Oxford. Both schools are defending" champions of their conferences, the Southwest and Southeast. This is the first time for that situation in the 16 meetings of the ancient rivalry that began in 1908. Arkansas has an 11-7 edge in Hie series and a 7-5 edge since the series began its regular Memphis run in 1937. Ten of the 12 games since tlieu have been at Memphis with the other two at Little Rock on an alternate year basis for the past four years. The Rebels will he shooting; to keep their Oxford record clean. This will be only their second meeting at Oxford. They played there in 19U8 and Oie' Miss racked up the Porks 25-0 in that one. The two t-luhs have met at Fayetteville only twice, in 1908 (their first contest) and 1926. Arkansas won both, 33-0 and 21-fi.
