The Jlarbons, intent upon their sixth victory of the year, lashed the Jackson team thoroughly for three touchdowns in the first quarter, and let the reserves handle it most of the remainder of the game. The final score was 35-14. Following is a play by play account of the game. BlyUieville won the tuss. elected t,o receive and required less than l\vo minutes to score. The Mctoff *«s short and went to end Fred Hodge on the 30 yard line. Hodge came steaming around right end with some crisp blocking, traveling nil the way to the Jackson reverse picked up 30.

Jackson toox a toucliback on Abbott's kick that went, into the end zone and put the ball m play from the 30, but the Golden Bears could- quaricr that Jackson got theu- break. Blytheville stopped a Jackson drive at it.s own 19 and took over on downs. Ooalter moved 15 for a first but Jayroe was stopped twice and a Jones to Biatcher pass was incomplete. Akers went back to kick and a mlxup in blocking assignments let Smith through. He blocked the kick and the Bears recovered on the 31. Stigall and Wallace got a first down on the 15, Allison moved to the 5 and after a Blytheville off- sides penalty Stigall scored from the one. Arnett's kick was good. On the folowing kickoff, Blytheville's reserves apparently forgot the kick v,a a free ball and the short, high boot fell among the Chicks and bounded untouched. Gaither alertly grabbed the ball for Jackson on the Blytheville 39. i He raced across the goal but officials called him back to the 29).
