FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINE Paps in Impressive Win Over Newport Juniors Get Victory No. 4 by 27-12 Score By CHARLES PEN'N JR. Courier News Special Writer Blythevilte's Junior High Papooses got back on the winning trail at Haley Field last night as they handed the visiting Greypups from Newport a 27-12 shellacking. Coalter took, but was stopped in The victory was the Paps' fourth of the season. They have lost one. "Slick" Nelson.' started the game with a nice kick, helped along by the wind to Newport's thirty, which the Greyhound juniors. ran back tp the 37. The visitors went over tackle for five, tried center for one, and a flag went down on an in- his tracks. With the Greyhounds looking for an attack from the air. Moore went over tackle in a run that was fast, like in track meets, all the way. Coalter went on the ground for the extra. Nelson's cross-over kick on the ground did not confuse the Grey' " — - '3g complete pass. Blytheville refused hounds at all. The Paps expecting the off-side penalty, forcing the vis- to recover could not. Bu^on took itors to kick, which their Porter sent to the Paps' 30—a nice kick against the wind. The home boys could not gain and on a third down a bad pitchout was fumbled, recovered by the Greyhounds on the Papooses' 20. A pass from Miller to Porter was dropped, bub recovered to give the Greyhounds a score of six which they were unable to add to. Things, looked bad for the Paps. Nice Run by Pulley A rfiange came quickly. Pulley took the kick on his 30 and outrunning his interference, advanced to the Newport 45. The Blytheville boys tried on the ground and in three tries had a first down that would have meant points if the Greyhounds' Hardin had not stopped Coalter on the 35 as he was following the best interference the locals have shown this year. Three more plays awarded the Paps another first down. Moore over center got- five, Coalter over tackle got four, and Pulley breaking through center, went for two. The ground attack was working well but to confuse the Greyhounds, Coalter tried through the air, missr ing Moore who was wide open. To make up for his miss, Coalter took, dodged and sidestepped, every white- shirt that got in his way, showing he could make points on the ground. He passed to Gillis for the extra and turned what looked like a lost cause into a lead for the Paps, although small, 7-6. Sandlin dropped back to kick, but Nelson crossed for a ground-kick that failed to reach the 50. Newport took on the Paps' 42 as the first quarter ended. Bell Goes Over After trying the Blytheville line for a five yard gain, then being pushed back, Miller tried to pass on fourth down—incomplete. The ball went over to the Paps, Overanxious Greyhounds drew an offside penalty giving Blytheville a first with only five to go. Newport's middle line-backer, Brazil, got in the way of all the boys 'in red shirts. It was impossible to tell how many men he put down before he settled the play for only a two yard gain. Ross, on -a spinner—and it looked like every Pap on the field was spinning—took the pigskin to the 40 for another first. . Coalter backed up for a try in the air and was bottled up for a loss of 11 yards. Trying through the line, he could not pick up the loss and faced a third down with 20 to go. Through the air, a hurl to Moore on the 30 looked mighty fine, but the man in the striped shirt said it was out of bounds—fourth and 20 to go. Nelson's kick to the Newport 30 was called back on an offside penalty. On his next kick "Slick" sent the ball to the Newport 20 where Porter took it out of the air, got away from Wilfiford only to be caught up with by him and downed on the 46. Coalter Scores After Porter lost two on a try around end, Miller could not complete his pass to Jones, and Cheshier could not gain Lo the right. Porter kicked to the Paps' 35.' to his own forty-nine. Thru center for three went the visitors. Miller, who tosses the ball well, passed to his left-end Smith for a forty yard gain to the Blytheville 20. The Paps were just not looking for this. There was no interference on the part of the Greyhounds — they did not need it. All eleven Paps were back close to midfield. Around end went the ball to the Paps' ten and 'another first for Newport in scoring position, but a pass was incomplete. The Blytheville boys came back to the game and stopped Porter for no gain around the end. In spite of a flag on the play the whistle had blown and the half ended 14 to 6 in favor of the home team. Moore AH The Way Newport's kick to open the second half was taken by Coalter who handed off to Moore, He went all the way for six counters and Coalter converted on the ground for the extra point. Jones ran back Nelson's kick ten yards from Newport's thirty to their forty, but the Greyhounds could not get their passes work- ng. One after another they tried without success until they had to kick on downs putting the ball in the Paps' possession on Blytheville's 35. Coalter picked up another eight when Bratcher replaced him. Bratcher's pass was short. Coalter came back to go over the midfield stripe to the Greyhounds' forty for a first, then around end for five more. Moore carried over center to the Newport twenty for a first. On his next try over right end a flag went down to cost five yards. Coalter handed off to Ross for a 13 yard gain, making it third and one to go. On a quarter-back sneak Blytheville's "passing boy" again took to the ground and went over, but could not get, thru the Greyhound line for the extra. The remainder of the third quarter was "vaxzle-daizle." On a three-way lateral the Greyhounds only picked up two yards. Jaroe intercepted one of Miller's passes and advanced from the Blytheville forty-eight to the Newport forty- eight only to be called back on a pushing penalty. Being unable to complete short passes Newport found themselves with a fourth and twelve to go. Reserves Take Over Coach Fisher sent in the second (earn who took the ball on the Blytheville thirty as the third quarter ended. The second string tried nobly but were too much outweighed and outplayed as they began the last quarter. When it was third and seventeen to go the Paps' starters came back in. The statue of liberty, beautifully executed, looked like it was good for a lot of yards, but a fifteen yard penalty for illegal use of the hands set the ball oack with the Paps faced with twenty-five yards to go and third down. A five yard gain around right end was not enough. Nelson's kick on his own forty-five was called back on an offside penalty eating up the five yards gained. Aga inst the wind, he could only boot the ball to Blytbeville's thirty.' Once, twice, three times Miller Luxora School To Drop Football Indebtedness, Lack Of Interest Blamed; Will Forfeit Games LUXORA — Luxora High School will drop football after today's game with Marion, high school principal Jerry Haley announced yesterday, $ Haley said yesterday that after this afternoon's game the Panthers would forfeit the four remaining games on their schedule and "drop football altogether." Mr. Haley listed finances and lack of interest as the reasons for abandoning football. Indebtedness Blamed 'We're so far in debt In our football program now that we don't know when we will get out," he said. "And, too, I just don't see how we can carry on the program with a squad of only 13 or 14 boys." Coach Herschel Brewer, who is now in his first year us coach at Luxora, said that he expected to dress out only 13 boys for today's game. "We can't even scrimmage or tiave contact \vork in our practices. There just aren't enough boys," he said. Have 0-2-1 Record Luxora started the season with aetween 18 and 20 boys but injuries have sidelined several. Going into today's game the Panthers have a record of two osses and one tie. They tied Craw- •ordsville in their first game of ,he season and then lost to Le- Danto and Shawnee. They have games with Burdette, Keiser, Wilson and Earle.

In 1853 the Cards' noundsmen were solved for only 139 homers as St. Louis tied for ourth in the standings. 26 Off Haddlx Three of the Red Birds—Harvey Haddix, Vic Raschl and Qerry Sta- iey—were guilty of giving up 20 >r more homers.

The Cincinnati Redlegs' pitching staff finished right on the heels of the Cards with 169 home runs allowed, followed by Brooklyn with 184.

Baltimore hurlers were the most selfish in the majors, permitting but 78, one less than given up by Washington. 35 Off Roberts Robin Roberts of the Philadelphia Phils and Detroit's Steve Oro- mek were the individual "gopher- ball" leaders for the first time in their major league careers.

(AP) — Arkansas' astounding Razorbacks put (heir national rating .and an unbeaten record on the line here tomorrow afternoon when they meet the University of Texas, pre-season favorites to win the Southwest Conference championship. Despite the fact that they have lost two games this year, Texas rules as a two touchdown favorite to hand the Razorbacks their first defeat of 1954. Texas' losses were to Oklahoma and Notre Dame, l\vo of the nation's top 10. The Steers hold decisions over Washington StaU and Louisiana State. Arkansas was moved up to No. 12 in the Associated press' weekly poll of the country's top lootball tennis after last Saturday's 31-20 conquest of Baylor. The Razorbacks also are enjoying the novelty of sitting atop the Southwest Conference standings with a 2-0 league mark. In addition to Baylor, the Hogs have whipped Texns Christian 20-13 and the University of Tulsa 41-0. Defense I» Backbone An Iron defense has been the backbone of Arkansas' success this season, and that defense will get Its sternest test against Texas. The Texnns boast a big team with plenty of depth, and a devastating ground attack. To date, the passing game of the Steers has left much to be desired. Arkansas' offense, while far from overpowering, hns demonstrated that it can move in the clutch. The Razorbacks were able to turn their opponents' mistakes to their own advantage against both TCU and Baylor. And. so far. the defense has been able to provide the "breaks." The trio of Arkansas foes have fumbled 15 times, and 11 of those mlscues have been recovered by the Porkers. Depth May Tell Texas' overall team strength, and Arkansas lack of It. could be the deciding factor in the tilt. The Texans boast three fine teams, while Arkansas can call on no more than 26 men when the going Is rough .A defensive weakness at end, which Baylor exploited to much advantage In the second half of last Saturday's game, could prove disastrous, to .the Hogs when they try to stop Texas on the ground. So far this year, Arkansas has tumbled one jinx after another. In whipping Tulsa, the Razorbacks held a tea mscorelcss for the first time In seven years; their triumphs over TCU and Baylor marked the first time they have beaten that pair on a successive Saturday in eight years; and their four-gamo winning streak Is the longest posted by a Razorback eleven since 193637. Another Jinx Against Texas, the Razorbacks face another potent jinx. In 35 previous meetings, Texas has whipped Arkansas 29 times. And, Arkansas hasn't beaten Texas in Austin since 1837. Arkansas Coach Bowden Wyatt's team will enter the game without serious injuries, and Wyatt is taking no chances on a key man being hurt in scrimmage. Only half-speed .scrimmages aro scheduled for the week because Ar- kansas can't afford to lose a single player from Its lightly-manned squad. Wyatt probably will stick with ths starting line-up which opened the game against Baylor. That would put Teddy Souter and Jerry McPadden at ends; Eddie .Bradford and Jim Roth at tackles; Dick Hardwick and Bud Brooks at guards; Jerry Ford at center; Preston Carpenter at blocking back; Joa Thomnson at wingback; Henry Moore at fullback; and George Walker at tailback. Trabeii Wins Pan-Am Title MEXICO CITY W — Tony Tra- ticrt, newly crowned Pan-American singles tennis champion, expressed confidence today t(jat the United States will bent Sweden and challenge Australia for the Davis Cup although Vic Seixns has not been playing up to form, "Vic hns had a rough season and wns tired."

The American team showed its superiority over the Swedes In the doubles finals when Trabert and. Selxas defeated Sven Davidson and Lennart Bergelin 6-4, 6-4, 8-1. F.
