BHS Homecoming Tonight Weatherman Cooperates; Newport Foe With the weatherman all but promising perfect autumn weather (and that means perfect football conditions) for this area tonight, prospects were good today for a capacity crowd at Blytheville's homecoming contest with the Greyhounds from Newport at Haley Field tonight. >ra-Tiger Tilt Tops of 1955 In Prep Circles By THK ASSOCIATED PHKSS The Pine Bluff Zebras, who have only n tie to mar their record in eiijht games this season, challenge league-leading! Little Rock tonight for the championship of the Big Eight Conference. Game time is 8 p.m. with crown- Ing of Homecoming Queen Betty Crocker to ' precede mailers at about 7:45. Bin ihat isn't the beginning of tonight's big double attraction for the price of one. At 6:30 a pair of Junior Hign teams, made up of seventh and eighth graders, will take to the field in a battle of grid giums. Dr. John Koldus, head mentor for the Papooses, will guide the fortunes of one team with Jimmy Fisher directing the destiny of the other. Victory No, 7 The Chickasaws will go into tonight's game seeking victory number seven. The Tribe is in good physical condjtiort with only a few minor bruises showing up during the week's .workouts. Everyone on the team will be erady to go for the Greyhound battle. Chich forces, which usually number about 30 or 32, have been augmented this week by about 10 ninth graders up from activity with the Papooses. The Paps finished their season last week. One Loss Some of the freshmen could get • Into tonight's game, but it mostly depends on how the scrap goes hi its early stages. BlyiheviUe, with only s loss to Pine Bluff, has victories over Osceola, North Little Rock, Whitehaven, Hot Springs, Malvern and Jackson. Strength of the Newport team is hard to determine in comparison with the Chicks. The Greyhounds have lost to Forrest City and Jonesboro and have wins over Paragould, Conway and Stuttgart. Size and Speed The Greyhounds reportedly have good size and good speed in the backfield. Scouting reports indicate the 'Hounds have good material all down the lineup. Blytheville will be heavily favored to make, it two straigth over Newport. The Chicks battered the Greyhounds 39-14. last year in the first game between the two schools since 1936. Coaches Russell Mosley and Bill Stancil are expected to go with the riame lineup used in past games, though one or two positions are in doubt. Starters Last week sophomore Ed Moore replaced senior James Privett at right halfback in the starting lineup and Jimmy Earls started at right end in place of Freddy Rounsavall. Otherwise Mosley probably will have Fred Hodge at left end, Homer Ratliff and Frank Sparks at tackles, Bo Huffman and Jodie Hall at guards, co-capiain Jimmy Gee at center, Bobby Jones at quarterback. Freddy Akers at left halfback and co-captain Charles Abbott a' fullback.

The Porkers need a victory over Southern Methodist to finish the Southwest Conference season with a 3-2-1 record. The game means • even more to the Mustangs. They can remain in contention for second place in the league and a possible spot in the Cotton Bowl by turning back the Hogs. The two teams have been traveling in opposite directions the past, two weeks. The Mustangs, chosen to finish near the top in the conference, has bowed to Texas and Texas A&M and is struggling to stay in che race. The Razorbacks tied favored Texas A&M and upset Rice 10-0 in their last two games. Arkansas Coach Jack Mitchell seemed more optimistic early this week than at any other time this season. Then, the Hogs got a setback when Preston Carpenter, stellar right halfback, was put to bed Monday with an "acute practice yesterday, but Mitchell wouldn't say whether he will play. Carpenter, a vital part of the 1954 championship team, was expected to be the team's top ball carrier this year. An early injury kept him out at the start and he didn't regain top form until the last two games. Ronnie Underwood, a 185-pound junior from Mttle Rock, may move up from the second unit to the right .half spot. Don Horton. the soph who starred last week, again will start at left half, the position vacated by the injured Joe Thorn ason. The old reliables, fullback Henry Moore and quarterback George Walker will round out the starting backfield. Mitchell seemed pleased with the performance of his linemen after the conquest of Rice and he remarked that the boys seemed both positions. Biff Bojs Coach Woody Woodard has huge, tough line and a capable, all-senior backfield. The heavyweights in the line are Don (Tinyl Goss, 256. Forrest Gregg, 216, and Eric Knebel. 2-13. The Mustangs stopped the Rii- zorbacks' win streak last year, 2114.

Curlee's Pirates have been invited to play Thavtks- | giving in the Hospitality Bowl in Booneville where he coached j for three years. Burdette will play Booneville. which is one of the top teams of the Tom big bee Conference. Booneville has blended a sturdy running game with a strong passing attack to come up with an 8-2 record for the year and a 7-1 conference mark. Burdette has punched out a 5-1-1 record, losing only to Osceola. They travel to Portageville to- they are expected to victory and then game will remember halfback John M a r s h a 11, who slashed throuch the Arkansas defense for big gains.

Don- j SjS C * h ! n aid Campbell, will try again today ^y " at Burdette Thursd night to better on Lake Mead his mar 1 ; J of 202.32 miles an hour. Yesterday he piloted his jet-powered Bluebird 192.176 miles an hour on a one-kilometer straight-away. He had made three unsuccessful tries to get his craft up on her plan- ing surfaces for a timed run. On his fourth try, late in the day, the Bluebird entered the traps at 145 miles an how, her speed indicator showed, and at the end of her run she was turning better than 230 miles an hour. Two successive runs, with average time recorded, are necessary to qualify for a record. Big One That's the big one as far as the Bill.Rigney, new manager of the Pirates are concerned. Right now, Wilson is sitting atop District 3B standings, having only a 13-13 tie with Osceola to mar its record. However, Curlee said today his Pirates have a real good chance to upend Wilson. "We have nine seniors on our club and they don't want to lose their last home football game," Curlee pointed out Turning back to Booneville, Curlee said the Mississippians run from the same Notre Dame box used by Blytheville. Tailback Douglas Marshall is a very'good passer. Booneville. reports have it, is not too big, but has good team speed.
