Bohaning and Chris A. penning- ton. both of Blytheville. getting $5 each. Mr. Bohnning and Mr. Pennington both missed only five [inmcs in the contest and neither guessed at the score of the Blythovillc-White- haven game so contest judges ruled that the two split the prize money.

' , With only three weeks of the season gone, time probably has run ! out on Notre Dame. The one defeat the Irish suffered at the hands of Purdue probably will deprive young Terry Brennan of a title in his first year as a head conch. G^'ahoma already is over the big stumbling block of its schedule ami. Although Bud Wilkinson's lads still have .seven games to go, none if the remaining teams figure to be in the class of Texas, which fell before the Sconers 14-7 last Saturday. Slill Have Tough Ones Oklahoma'.still has Kansas Kansas State, Colorado, Iowa State, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma A&M on its schedule. Some of these certainly are not pushovers, and that greater equalizer, tiie one-platoon system, could work against any club. But if the Sooners can lick an outfit like Texas without the aid of Gene Caliime, the ought to be able to take anyone else with him. He probably will be back against Kansas. Jim Harris took over for Calame and the sophomore .substitute made his gloomy coaches eyes light ip. Karris' passing was a revalation ind he'll be heard from in the fu- ,uro. The rest of the Notre Dame schedule i,s loaded with bloody traps and the only hope the Irish. have coming out on top as the experts predicted in the preseason Associated press poll is to sail through their opposition and for the Sooners to be upended at least once. Notre Dame was impressive in ts 33-0 victory over Pitt. The victory showed that Brennan and his crew were capable of rebounding ftcr a humiliation. That's a good sign, but the Irish still have to tackle Michigan State and Navy in the next two weeks. U. C. L. A and Wisconsin At the moment, UCLA and Wisconsin are Oklahoma's chief rivals for national honors. But even their position Is precarious. The Ulcans barely cot past Washington, 21-20, and Wisconsin had considerable trouble boating Rice 13-7. Both UCLA and Wisconsin stay in their own leagues for the rest of the campaign. The Ulcans have five more Pacific Coast Conference games left, starting with Stanford, Seven Games on Tap with 4 Scheduled for County Fields Mississippi County's football fans will have another full weekend of their favorite sport this week as every team in the county swings into action. Seven games are on the agenda tot- this week with four of them to be played on county fields. The big one in the Class "B" division will be played at Kelscr where Keiser's undefeated Yellow Jackets to. dogs. At least two junior games are on tap for Thursday nighi. •BIythevflle's juniors remain at home this week to take on Newport in a game scheduled for Haley Field clash head on with Wilson's Bull-I Thursday night. , And Osceola's high powered ]un- This game is expected to go along' ior Seminoles get a real Lest Thurs- way in deciding the District SB' day night when _they'go J,o_ Jones•ace as both teams are ranked high n the running. Another top game this week will tie reeled off at Burdtte where Coach Harold Stockton's Burdette Pirates take on a strong Corning :ea ni. Corning has one of the strongest teams in this area and Burdette will be trying to get back on the ivinning trail after being sidetracked 41-0 by Class A West Memphis ast week. Luxora Plays Marion Only one other high school game is scheduled for a county field this week. That one will be played at Luxora Friday afternoon when the Luxora Panthers play host to Marion. Blytheville and Shawnee both travel outside the county this week. The undefeated Chicks go to Mobile, Ala., to meet another undefeated team, Murphy High of Mobile, Friday night. And Shawnee journeys to Lepan- \vhile the Badgers have to get by hall a dozen Big Ten foes. If things keep going as they are, the Coast race could go right down to the final game when UCLA anc SouUimi California meet on Nov 20. The Big Ten, on the other hand, L-oLild be decided this week when Wisconsin anci Purdue come to grips.
