(AP) — Usually the Rice Institute has a championship contender all set for a strong November finish by the time it plays the University of Arkansas. However, when the two teams meet here Saturday, it'll be just for fun, Coach Jess Neely, senior coach In .the Southwest Conference, somehow seldom manages to get his Owls in fighting trim until the season is half gone. And their strong comeback usually is enough to put them near the top. However, Rice'has won only two out of six games and has lost its only two Southwest Conference outings. The Owl record now is 2-3-1 against top-flight opposition and the three losses have come in their last three games. The Razorbacks, struggling to stay above the,.500 level with three tough foes remaining, have a 3-3-1 mark and stand 1-2-1 in conference play. Perhaps the Porks will be hampered by a psychological block, for they know that no previous Arkansas team has ever whipped the Owls in Texas. The Hogs came close twice, 0-0 in 1320 and 12-12 in 1939, but Rice has won 14 times on Texas soil. The Owls hold a 22-6-2 edge in the series. The last time the Hogs visited, Houston, they took a 47-0 pasting, j although the 1954 team got at least j a partial revenge by downing the Owls 28-15 before a record-tying turnout of 38,000 in Little Rock. Except for the absence of Joe Thomason. a valuable little halfback, the Razorbacks will be in good shape. Thompson's final season with the Porkers was cut short when he fractured an arm L- the 7-7 tussle with Texas A&M last week. Sophomore and Yets Sophomore Don Horton will run With the veteran Arkansas starting backfield: fullback Henry Moore a cinch repeater on the all-conference team; quarterback George Walker; and halfback Preston Carpenter, who regained his top form for the first time in the last half against Texas A&M. Arkansas Coach Jack Mitchel has been satisfied with the gradual improvement in the Hogs from week to week. The improved play started for the first time, was the chief surprise in the Texas A&M game. Mitchell said fchat the Porks wil miss Thomason, one of the besl at guarding against passes. , bus for the Tenne.-5.-ce town. A final, spirited workout in Haley Field Stadium was held yesterday and the Chicks looked like a team that was ready to roll through the remainder of their schedule in a business-like manner. They return home next wc«k for the first. Haley Field game .lince Oct. 14. Their foe will be Newport. The Chicks close the season here the following week against the rugged Wildcats from El Dorado. Flu Bug Except for a few cases of flu. the team was in good physical concii- tion for tonight's test. Bobby Jones and Fred Rounsavall, who were sick early in the week, appeared recovered, and two later cases. Fred Hodge and Charles Coulter, also should be ready ;o go. Same Routine Russell Mbslcy will be expeced to go with the same 11 -starters he's used all season. This will put Hodge and Rounsavall at ends, Frank Sparks and Homer RatlitT at tackles. Bo Huffman and Jodie Hall at guards, Jimmy Gee at,center, Bobby Jones at quarterback, Freddy Akers and James Privett at halfbacks and Charles Abbott at fullback. .Abbott and Akers again will carry the offensive load behind the powerful blocking of Jones, Hall, Huffman and Gee. Paps Rise to Heights for Final Victory Osceola, Wilson Clash Tonight The season's headline clash in District 3B football takes place in Wilson tonight as the Bulldogs defend their lair from the powerful Seminoles of Osceola. Both teams are undefeated in league play and the winner should turn out to be district champion. Both coaches feel they have a good chance to win if their boys come through with good play and spirit is great in both camps. "We believe we stand ,a good chance of winning if we play up to par," said Bulldog Coach Bob Courtway. "And we'll have to play good because we know Osceola has H good team." Osceola Coach Wally Jackson said, "I think we can win if we play heads up ball. We have a good club, but they have a good one too, nnd we're looking for them to play their best game of the year against us." Osreolii Slight Favorite The odds should favor Osceola slightly on the strength of previous garncE this year, but they've been throwing the form book away on this one lor many years. The rivalry has produced many great, thrilling games, BoLh_clube will be in good condition for the game and both will go with about the same combinations they have been using. Courtway said there will b* no changes in his lineup. He would single,out no individuals In explaining Wilson's success so far. "It's been wholly n team effort," he sad. Jackson indicated that Lurry Hulsey, replacing Maloch at tackle, would be his only change. Otherwise he said there would be little change, though he has made some slight variat ions in the offense along the way. Tigers Meet Cairo Tonight CARUTHERSVILLE — Two high school football teams vying for third place in the Big Eight Conference of Southeast Missouri will meet tonight when Cnruthersville's Tigers journey north to Cairo, 111., to batlte the Pilots. The game is expected to be a close and rough contest. Coarh John McG Hire's tribe will be up against their former coach, Don (Red> Cross, who has been at Cairo for the past two years. The Tigers have six wins and two losses for the year and a conference record of three wins and two losses. Cairo has four wins, two losses and one tie. The Pilots' conference record stands at two wins and two losses. i All-Star Grid, Cage Games Voted by AAA LITTLE ROCK -'Jl — The leading football and basketball players from Arkansas high schools probably will tangle in all-star games here next August. The groundwork was laid yesterday Tor an all-star football game and an all-star basketball game — both set up as east-west rivalries — when the Arkansas Athletic Association approved the move. Under the plan advanced by the Arkansas High School Coaches Association, which will sponsor the games, bond coaches for the teams will be selected by members of the AHSCA and the head coachs will choose their assistants. Players — all seniors — will be nominated by districts and selected by the coaches. No more than two pi n y ers from e a ch school would be permitted on the 30-man football squads and no more than one from each school on the 12- man basketball squads. Players wouldn't be allowed to compete in both contests. The east-west dividing line, as outlined by Lake Village Coach Lamar Dingier, president, of the AHSCA, would place DUtricis 2. 3, 6 and 8 with Blytheville, North Little Rock. Little Rock and Pine Bluff from the Big Eight in the, eastern division. The western division would be composed of players from District 1. 4, 5 and 7 with Fort Smith Texarkana, Hot Springs and E Dorado from the Big Eight. The games — football at Wai Memorial Stadium mid basketbat either at .Barton Coliseum or Little Rock Junior College's fieldhouse— would follow the annual AAA couching* clinic. ever fine Kentucky Strarinr BROOK •"•^^^ HUNO KENTUCKY STRAIQHT BOURBON WHISKEY $455 »J»s »»M I K PI. * </5 <)'• « On' Also inil/iblt' KENTUCKY BUENDEO WHISKEY THE OLD 1UNNY UROOK COMPANY, DIVISION OF NATIONAL DISTILLERS PRODUCTS CORPORATION.

I The ht'iu ily fa'.on.'d Teiitiesseeims had planned a party celebrating an j undefeated season before they mov-! ed across the Mississippi but the i only place they felt at home after j the game wus at the wailing wall, f Sparked by the running of Jnu j Pulley and Jan Jan-en and deter- j mined line play from end to end.! the Paps gained their most coveted i •AI;I of the season and brought their :!*;w record to 4-and-4. Nine of Coach John Koldus* 11 ,;ers completed their junior high t \!i-fcrs last night and they bowed out in championship style. Fake Tunt The Paps opened their bid for a ;..;n early in [he first quarter when Pulley faked a punt and ran 25 .ards to the Jackson 37. JnrretL and Pulley then moved to a first down on the Jackson 18. The Paps' attack momentarily bogged down when t>vo passes failed and the Cubs took o;er on clowns on the 15. ihii'kson fumbled on its first run- !i:ng play of the game and Pulley. •,vho last week handled the bait as if it were a hot potato, recovered lor the Paps on the Jackson 12. The Paps were on their way. At'ier two cracks at the line lost three yards. Jarreit. who is moving to California today, hit Pulley wiui a short pass just over the scrim- nuige line and Jim powered his way imo the end zone. Jarrelt bucked over for tiie conversion. The Cubs, shocked into the realization ihat their party plans may have been premature, moved to a touchdown in three running plays. Cub quarterback Mike Armstrong set up the score when he gained 45 yards on a brilliant run.

Blytheville crossed up the Cubs on the first punt play of the second half. Earlier the Paps had run some reverses around the right side. This time they brewed some deception around the left side and it set up the winning'touchdown. Watson Sets Up Score Watson took the ball from Pulley on a left side reverse at the Paps' 45 and moved 52 yards before being knocked out of bounds on the Jackson three. In two plays Pulley bucked over for the Paps' winning touchdown in their sweetest win of the season. Because of a Jackson penalty, the Papa had two cracks, at the conversion and missed them both. The fourth quarter was an epidemic of clipping penalties against both teams. But the Cubs suffered the most when. Jim Williams' 65- yard touchdown jaunt was nullified by clipping. This seemed to dishearten the Cubs and the Paps were out of danger. There was both joy and solemnity i MI : e.ssmg room aft- ' couch KoUlus tt«is choked up with jtn a.s he ---aid.
