PAGE TEN 8LYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NBWg Stat* Championship In Football to Be Decided on Points The proposed creation of i special football classification for the ' Iwger high schools of the state became a reality yesterday when tha Arkansas Athletic Association revised its state play-off system to Include a new Triple-A division. Formation of the new division, to be known as the "Big Six Conference",- was given the final okay at a meeting of representatives of association member schools In Little Rock. There was no opposition to the proposal. The Triple-A division \vns given the monicker of the "Big Six Conference" because only the six larger «chools of the stale are at present •ligible for entry. However the playoff revision did not set a tea:)] membership limit, the only requirement if that member schools have a high school enrollment of at least 600 student*. Th« six teams to be included in the new conference arc Little Rock. North Little Rock, Hot Springs, El Dorado, Fort Smith and Pine Bluf. r . Called Trlpl«-A Division These schools will begin leagua play with the opening ol the 1948 season. Each Big Six school must play every other member team with the conference championship to tie determined on a percentage bails of games won and lost. Winner at the conference title will be declav- «d Triple-A champs of the state. No play-off will be held in the .new AAA division. However the rs- /vision authorizes a post-season •play-off between the winners of tho AAA division and champions of the Double-A classification provided that both teams concerned agree. ', Narrows Chick Competition Creation of the now classification removed the Big Six teams Jrom • the Double-A brackets of which •ach was a member last year. This narrows the Double-A division doVn to 14 teams including Blytlieville High School. Others are Subiaco, ^Fayetteville, Jonesboro, Hope, for- idyce, Texarkana, Rogers, Springdale, Van Buren, Russellville, Cam',den, Smackover and Harrison. • I The A and B divisions of the playoff system were not affected by the ^changes approved at the meeting. -. In getting the new division approved the six member schools hal .to make concessions iu order Ui gain their goal. The member schools • greed to pay the Arkansas Athletic Association, in addition to regular membership dues, a 10 cent per pupil fee to offset revenue the assr>- ciation would lose with the Big Six not participating In a regular play-olf.
