The Chicks couldn't got moving in the early part of the game with Newport's strapping squad playing the kind of ball they looked capable of playing.

Four Quickies First score came with two minutes left in the opening frame and then the Chicks were off. They notched ^hree more touchdowns in the second quarter, and two in the third before Newport could recover. The Greyhounds tallied against reverses in the fourth and Blytheville's TD came on a scintillating ,90-yard kickoff return by sophomore halfback Charles Coalter. The homecoming show before a near-capacity crowd revealed the Chickasaw offense at its awesome heights for the home folks. Akcrs Stands Out Led by the brilliant play of Freddy Akers from his haKb'dck-tiulbuck slot, and behind the tremendous blocking of Quarterback Bobby Jones and guards Jodie Hall and Bo Huffman, the Chicks rolled 403 yards on the ground and in the air.

State Intentions The Slate Department called a week ago on both countries to state their Intentions. Department press officer Lincoln White said yesterday a formal reply has not a r r i v e d but is "certainly expected." White described the Burns proposals as the .short range U.S. policy "(o put out the fire." For the long haul, he said, U.S chips are on Secretary of State Dulles' Aug 26 offer of economic aid to resettle refugees, help to negotiate firm boundary lines and military support to Guarantee the security of both sides within those boundaries. It was emphasized by White that no decision has yet been reached on whether to sell Israel weapon.*?. The Israelis want them, they say. to offset Soviet bloc shipments of jet planes, tanks, submarines and other arms to Egypt.

As usual, the Chicks' powerhouse fullback Charles Abbott played an outstanding game, as a runner, blacker and defender. Abbott carried eight times for 66 yards to maintain his season's Jiv erage of eight yards per carry. That- boosted his season total to T66 yards -for eight games. Blocking Good The entire Chick team looked good on blocking assignments after they got in high near, and the defense exhibited rugged, hard-hitting tackling. With Newport using a 7-diamond defense that drifted into eight and 10-man Imps, the Chicks-used their passing attack with excellent results with some fine play-calling by Jones. The passing attack clicked for three of the Tribe's seven touchdowns.

STROZIER RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — All threat of opposition to trast, to the acid argument of two previous sessions, in the course of which Dulles and Molotov accused each other, either directly or by implication, of practicing bad faith. Today Dulles suggested work be started on "a common statement" reflecting the debate, which he said had been "useful and informative." He remarked that he would not be so optimistic as to say that either side had affected the thinking" of the other but he thought there was a better understanding of differing points of view. Dulles Confident - - . Dulles said he felt confident that! Brazil's new temporary president collapsed early today. "even though we do not reach a large measure of formalized agreement, certainly the exchange of viewpoints which has occurred here will be instructive and will help representatives in the United Nations subcommittee" (.on disarmament.) Molotov began his comments on the achievements of the badly split} disarmament debate with what appeared to be a needling reference to his efforts to get Western agreements to some kind of generalized renunciation of aloniic arms. In his words he had hoped to get an agreement here "to end the arms race." Otherwise Molotov said he thought the four could state that (hey recognize the need to continue to seek agreement on a comprehensive program for disarmament which could promote international peace and security.

Carlos Coimbra da Luz, ousted temporary chief executive who took refuge Thursday night aboard the Brazilian cruiser Tamandare, ordered the vessel back into Bio de Janeiro harbor today and said it was his final official act. The air minister, Maj. Gen. Eduardo Gomez, who rushed to Sao Paulo, Brazil's ranking industrial city, to organize a last-stand resistance to the administration of the new temporary president, Nereu Ramos, ordered the air force to halt its opposition. Named President Congress named 66-year-old Ramos temporary president after a coup yesterday led by Gen. Henrique Teixeira Lott had toppled Luz. Ramos thus became Brazil's third chief executive in four days. Brazil returned to normality after a bloodless, 24-hour coup won by the army against the open but passive opposition of the navy and the air force. There was no fighting. The only shots fired in anger came from the fortress in Rio de Janeiro har- bov. It fired five or six. rounds Friday morning to warn navy ships not to make a break for the open sea. Police lifted censorship at 9 a.m. All business houses, except banks, reopened. Banks were ordered closed until Tuesday. A government statement said Luz will be permitted to land when the cruiser Tamandare returns, perhaps late today. It was reported some of Luz'.s associates who boarded the Tamandare with him would be arrested. Luz, formcr president of the House of Deputies, had assumed the presidency under the constitution last Tuesday when President Joao Cafe Filho took an indefinite leave of absence to recover from a heart attack. Lett's move was made in an effort to thwart any possible attempts by military proups to keep Juscettno Kuhilschok, elected president last month, from taking office in January. Lott resigned Thursday nieht as war minister , when Lu/, failed to back him up busy j m an effort to discipline an army colonel for an anti-Kubltschek speech.
