PAGE WELTS BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COOTTBR NEWS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1955 th will p over). n si fju Lfeorae The Weekly Chore-It's Now A Matter of Perseverance It's that time again snd we've determined to see this task .rough the remainder of the season, no matter what (nnd "what" ill probably means we'll sink below the 50 per cent mark before it's We managed to improve slightly last week over that horrendous week before last, though the gain was so negligible »s to b« hardly •risible to the naked eye. At least we got back above the 60 per cent bracket with 16 correct selections and nine fumbles (and some of those nine were lulu's). That gives us a mediocre season record of VI hits and 5S strikeouts for 61 per cent. Maybe we'll get hit in the head with a horseshoe this week. # • • THE CHICKASAWS are rarin' to go this week for the first time since their discouragement at the hands of Pine Bluff. There's been a spirit about their practice sessions for the pa« two weeks that tops anything shown during the early stages of the campaign ... and it's growing all the time (from the looks of things, it will have to keep on growing if the Chicks are going to handle El Dorado in their final game of the year Nov. 18). The Tribe should really be ready, both mentally and physically, for the improved Trojans of Hot Springs. Despite the fact that they'll be playing on foreign soil, the outlook is for a high-scoring affair - »t least on the Chlckasaw side of the ledger. And the reserves should get plenty of opportunity to get m some licks and stash away some valuable experience. Our estimate is Blytheville 39, Hot Springs 13. THE PAPOOSES of John Koldus and Jimmy Fisher come back home for the first time in several weeks tonight and they'll be seeking their fourth victory of the campaign. A win mil'put the Juniors above the .500 mark with a 4-3 slate. And once again they meet an Arkansas team - against which they've been undefeated so far - »H three losses have come at the hands of Tennessee teams. The Paps have come far under Koldus' guiding hand, and while the Junior Blue Devils have a big squad, spirited action by the Paps . before a hometown crowd should prove sufficient to pick up the victory. Paps over West Memphis 20-13. IT MAY SOUND as if we can't get off the sentimental bandwagon for the Kazorbacks, but we're calling the Hogs to come through for tiie old grads at Saturday's head-crunching conflict in Razorback Stadium. The Porks didn't come through lor us last week, but It would have been difficult for anyone to conquer the high-riding Rebels on toat particular Saturday ... and on top of that the Porks were flat during the early, destructive stages of the game. We're still confident the Hogs have the hosscs to do the job against most anyone if they get the fire in their eyes - and homecoming at Payetteville is always a terrific catalyst for the Porker fire-eaters. Added to that is the expected letdown of the fabulous Aggies. It s almost bound to happen some where along the line, and what better time than Salurday. Arkansas 21, Texas Aiitt 16.

The Paps have come a long way since '.heir last loss. 25-13,, three \vecks ago at Jackson, Tenn. Since then they bowled over Newport. J8-7. and last week had an uphill fieht but managed to squeeze by Osceola, 13-7. 3-3 Record They now stand at 3-and-3 on the season and have a chance tonight to get on ihe credit side of the i ledger :"or ihe first time since they trimmed Poplar Bluff in their first ,:ame of the season. The line has improved substantially and the backfield. with speedy Jim Pulley stepping oft yardage in huge cnunks, has improved its ball handling. In the early games Bobby Westbrook and Bobby Dallas were the Paps' only dependable line reserves. But Westbrook has moved into a starting berth at guard and the Paps' second siring has gained more experience. Fortunately Westbrook and midget Mike Boyd, who started his first game last week at halfback., came along just in time. Last week half- back Jim Stllwell.was decked by a kidney infection which may sideline him for the rest of the season. Boyd has done well filling this gap. Belts Stricken Then this week Alvie Belts was knocked out by flu and luckily Westbrook — all 100 pounds of him — started at guard last week and is ready for duty tonight. The heart of the Pap backfield — Jan Jarrett and Pulley — will serve as game co-captains tonight. In their T-shirts and shorts, the Paps last night worked some of their pass patterns against a team .f the Hot-Springs bound Chicks. Koldus reported that his boys were "up" for this game and have been in excellent spirits during th« week's practice sessions. In shooting for win number four. Coach Koldus announced his probable starting lineup as follows: LE — 'Dave Burnett: LT — Harold Pulley. LG — Billy Joe Harvison: C — Jimmie Bruce: RO — Bobby Westbrook: RT - Gene Williams: RE — Jerry Manley: QB — Jan Jarrett; LHB — Mike Boyd: RHO — Charles Watson and PB — Jim Pulley.

RoMihis Breaks Ankle Osceola received some bad news ( yesterday, when Billy Rolibins second .string lineman broke his ankle »nd will be lost for the rest of the venr.

Wilson Next The Seminoles must take the Earle Bulldogs in order to stay in the running for the district championship as they only have Wilson left. "Wilson, too, is undefeated in conference play.

Rocky Willing To Fight Archie If Fans Desire LOS ANGELES W — Heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano is perfectly willing to fight Archie Moore again, provided the public wants a rematch and Archie "wins a couple of fights in the next few months. So said the champ here, today, adding il> that Jersey Joe Walcott hit him much harder than did venerable Archie, and (2) Moore really got, under his skin with his campaign for a title fight "Sure I was sore," said Rocky -He even sent me personal letters, daring me to fight him." Due to the government's healthy bite out of his ring earnings, Pocky confided, it isn't profitable to fight more than twice a year. He figures the next defense of the crown will be in June. Yes, he added, the winner of the coming rematch between Nino Va Ides-Hurricane Jacfcson. "would move into contention," Marciano flew here from the East for only one reason.

Cothren Wins AP Award UNIVERSITY, Miss., to— Fullback Paige Coihren, the Associated Press' ''Back of The Week" for his performance against Arkansas. revived the art of kicking field goals for the University of Mississippi. Coihren set a Southeastern Conference record, where field goals are almost out of date, by boot ing two against Georgia. Those two also were the first field goals kicked by a Mississippi player since 1931. The junior booted one field goal against Arkansas, in addition to scoring a touchdown, kicking two extra points, intercepting a pass, and blocking viciously for his teammates. A penalty prevented Cothren from scoring all Mississippi points in its 17-7 victory over Arkansas Saturday Cothren leads the Southeastern Conference scoring race with 44 points on four touchdowns, three field goals, and 11 extra points. He's a good bet for all-SEC honors.

AH leaders in the loop engage conference foes with the Earle-Osceola and Marion-Wilson contests providing chief interest. Osceola and Wilson, both undefeated In the conference, must come up with victories to remain the top contenders. That situation Is expected to prevail, and if it does, the conference championship may well be decided at Wilson next week when the Bulldog* entertain the rugged Semt- noles. Pirates Still in It Another conference game this week could have a bearing on the race. Burdette, once-beaten in loop play, visits Lepanto. The Pirates could stay in contention with a win over the panthers. They've been defeated only by Osceola. but have Wilson to meet in family feuding after this week. Marion is at Wilson tomorrow night for a game which should fatten the Bulldogs' averages. And Osceola likewise should build confidence with victory over Earle. It's homecoming for the Seminoles. Shawnee's Indians step outside the conference for an engagement tomorrow night at Harrisburg. • T Foot ball Battle Ends in Tie After going scoreless for the first quarter, the Cummings and Bakers staged a battle royal to tie in "Y" touch football 18-18 league play at Little Park yesterday afternoon. Neither team could move the ball in the first quarter which resolved itself into a punting duel. Early in the second period, a Jerry Lutz pass was intercepted by Dick Poster who picked up good interference to travel 60 yards for the first TD. , The Bakers came right back in the same period and tied it up on a Hip from Mike Terrs' to Bill Wy- att, which also was good for about 60 yards. In the second half, a series of Lutz to Baker passes, the final one good for 26 yards, enabled the Bakers to go out front by 12-6, but the Cummings cohorts tied it up on the flying feet of Foster, who took the pass from center and went 55 yards, making It 12-all, A Lutz to Wyatt pass good for 54 yards with only minutes left to play' gave the Bakers visions ol victory,- 1 but on the following series of downs, Foster threw to David Holt for the tying TD as time ran out.
