IN BUSINESS—Don Holleder. sure-fingered end, spent the early part of Army's season marching off demerits Once back with the varsity, however, he snared Pete Vann passes all over the field and the Cadets began to think in terms of a strong aerial attack. (NEA) The two teams collide head-on at Haley Field at 8 p.m. For the Chicks, this game will o!fer the opportunity for them to avenge the lone blemish on their 1053 record. The Wildcats of Clarkj- dale walked off with the Chicles' scalps after handing the Blythe- vlllians a 33-H shellacking In Clarksdule last year. But things aren't going to be a* easy a.s some might think. The Wildcats are a more solid imll club than their 3-< record Indicates. After a slow start.

The game was cancelled yes- lenlay aflcrnoon after an all day rain soaked Maiden's play- Ing field, Papoose Coach Jimmy Fisher said. fighting all week to get his squad's spirit back to what it was before the Chicks' loss to Mobile. Last week his Tribe looked lifeless In squeaking by East High of Memphis 1-6. And in practice sessions this week, their spirit showed, little Improvement. This fact, plus injuries to a cpu- ple of key players and Illness of a couple more could very easily cost Hie Chicks tonight. Danny Cobb, the Tribe's first string center, missed practice all week due to an Injured foot and Is expected to see little or no action tonight. And Kcnnctn Fisher, the Tribe's bis fullback, missed two days practice due to a siege of the flu and Isn't expected to be ready to go at full speed tonight. And Eugene Stephens, who has been counted on for some blocking back duly tonight, has nursed a pair of sure tonsils all week. Abbott Buck However, there Is one bright spot. Charles (Bug) Abbott, who has been alternating with Fisher at fullback, was back running at full speed this week and It appeared his Injured knee might let him go tonight. If so. he probably will be used as much as possible and nilRlit even draw a starting a-sslgnmtmt. Wonlher m»j be the Important factor In tonight's game. Rains yesterday soaked Haley Field but unless 'more water falls today, the lield should be In good condition. The Wildcats' offense is built around a nifty little quarterback by thr name of Bobby Franklin who guides the team's spllt-T attack. Franklin's string suit is ball hand- linn but he also considered a better than fair passer. Now It's 'B 1 At Mississippi UNIVERSITY. Miss.

Razorbacks Favored By 13 Points Over Ags Osceola Plays At Earle Tonight COLLEGE STATION, Tex." (AP) — The undefeated Ar-| kansas Razorbacks, fourth! ranking football power in the' nation, meet down-trodden Texas A&M here Saturday night in a Southwest Conference game. For the first time since the Razorbacks amashed Tulsa 41-0 in It* opening game, Arkansas will be favored to win. The odds-makers have made Texas A&M, which has won only one of six games this year, a 13-point, underdog to the high-flying Porkers. If Arkansas wins as expected, It will be the first time in history that the Razorbacks have gone undefeated on Texas soil. And, It will run up the longest Arkansas winning streak since 1921, when the Razorbacks won seven in a row. So far this year. Arkansas has defeated five opponents. Counting its season's end victory over Tulsa last year, the Porkers now have won six in, a row. Agglt* Improved Arkansas Coach Bowden Wyatt Isn't taknlg the. Texas A&M game lightly despite the difference in the two teams' records. The Aggies have improved steadily under the coaching of native Arkansan Paul (Bear) Bryant, and have played very well against conference opponents. Arkansas, as usual, came out of last Saturday's 8-0 triumph over Ole Miss without a serious injury, and will be in top condition for the game. Texas A&M's small squad also is expected to be at full strength. The game will mark the first time this year that Arkansas had held an advantage in depth over an opponent .but the Razorbacks probably will use no more than 25 men unless the game should become a rout. Won Only One So far this year, Arkansas, which leads the Southwest conference, lias whipped Baylor 21-20, Texas Christian 20-13 and Texas ,20-7 In addition to Tulsa and Ole Miss. Texas A&M's only victory was a 6-0 upset decision over Georgia. The Aggies have lost to Texas Tech 419, Oklahoma A&M 14-6, Houston 10-7, TCU 21-20, and Baylor 20-7. Coach Wyatt Is expected to start the same line-up he used against Ole Miss. Ted Souter and Jerry McPadden will be at ends; Eddie Bradford and Jim Roth at tackles; Bud Brooks and Wayland Roberts at guards; Jerry Ford at center; Preston Carpenter at blocking back; Joe Thomr.son at wlngbaek; Henry Moore at fullback; and George Walker at tailback. Arkansas holds a one game lead in the 27-game series between the two teams, having won 13 against 12 losses. There have been two ties. When 20 fillies and mares ran in Delaware Park's New Castle Handicap this year it was the largest field ever to go to the post in the runnings of the race. e 1 17 Shawnee Indians Beat Crawfordsville 40-6 JOINER — Halfback Jerry Stacks scored three touchdowns here last night to lend Shawnee's Indians to a 40-6 rout of Crawfordsville.

The two teams are scheduled to clash at 8 tonight in Earle. If comparative scores mean anything at all, the Seminoles can expect another rough evennig., Earle is the only team to conquer powerful West Memphis this year, upsetting the Blue Devils 6-0. The Blue Devils, several weeks ago. turned the Seminoles back by a 34-0. But realizing that football games aren't played on paper, the Seminoles are giving the Cardinals advance notice not to take them for granted. Junior* Join Squad They have worked hard for thii one and will be going all out to upset the highly favored Cardinals.. With the Junior football season completed, Coach Bill Bean has moved up his ninth graders giving the Seminoles the largest senior squad in history with the number reaching the 40 mark. Against Reiser Friday night they dressed out forty-four players. TWO of these juniors are making a solid bid for playing services with the senior team. Lloyd Moore, apedy left halfback and S- E. Stovall, fullback saw quite a bit of action in last Friday's game and with this week's practice under their belte might possibly push one of the senior vets aside should they happen to falter. Stovall will probably see most of his action on the defensive. Probable starters for the game tonight: Dewey Gentry, left end; Bernie Weiss, left tackle; Paul Goble, left guard; Illey Ellis, center; Otto Fleming, right guard; Allan Craig, right tackle; Jackie Crosth- walt,, right end; Wade Rodgers quarterback; Jake Morse, right halfback; Ben Wells, Kenny Clark, or Lloyd Moore, left halfback; Jerry Spencer, Nelson Hopkins or S. E. Stovall, fullback. Golf Is Fun— And Educational PITTSBURGH (ff>) — Golfing Is fun—more so if you get college credits for touring a sporty course.
