PAGE TEW BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COtTRIER NEWS WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 23, 1!)5S' &9 <? Dying Gasp Effort Ends Football Forecasting Fiasco Here we arc. back again a day earlier thanks to our forefathers who were far sighted enough to see the need for a little rest period along about now . . . won't that day off tomorrow be welcome? Last week's histrionics led us slightly better off than we were before, lipping our season's mark to 62 per rent. We came up with 16 right and eight wrong lor a 66 per cent mark. That moved the season's total to 145 correct guesses and 88 incorrect. That couldn't he considered better than mediocre for anyone but us (the gridpicks Winner, a girl, no less, lopped that easily, missing only three — but she beat the oilier fellows, too). So we're not too proud of our percentage, but we can't help mentioning the fact lhat we called the turn on the Bl.vtheville score and missed El Dorado's by only one point. We had it 14-7, but then who could count on [he Wildcats trying to pick up their extra point via the ill-fated I formation that failed to move the Chicks at all after the first few tries. SO HERE WE go with the final round of this fall fiasco. We don't even have the Chicks to comfort UE this week so we'll get right into the tough ones. Olc' Miss and Mississippi Stale get their annual head-banging: underway at Starkville Saturday, and this one might have a Sugar Bowl bid hanging In the balance. Both teams are well aware of that and are expected to throw everything they've got. Only trouble is, it looks like the Johnny Eebs have a little more to throw in Eagle Day, Paige Cothren, Billy Kinard, et al, than their brothers down south. Looks like the Rebels by a. nose, 16-7. TCU SHOULD show itself as worthy of representing the Southwest Conference in the Cotton Bowl with a firm, though probably not one- sided, victory over the Mustangs of SMU, Cornell will further humiliate Pennsylvania, Wichita over Tulsa. Texas A&M to culminate a miraculous sason with a resounding victory over Texas. IVesl Virginia Id get back on the winning side against North Carolina Stale, Navy to give Coach Eddie Erdelatz a 5-1 record over the Army, Holy Cross to top Boston College, Georgia Tech to look for some sugar at the expense of Georgia, Osceulu over Marked Tree,. South Carolina over Virginia, LSI! over Tulane. Auburn to wrap up what should be a Sugar Bowl invitation with an easy victory over Coach. Whit and the 'apless Alabamans, Baylor over Rice, Clemson over Purman. Colorado over Colorado A&M, Miami over Florida, Little Rock over North Little Rock, Texas Tech over Hardin-Simmons, Notre Dame over Southern California, Oklahoma over Oklahoma. A&M, Tennessee over Vanderbilt, Colgate over Brown and Jonesboro over Paragould. Chicks Finally Make Fourth Place The Chicks finally got out ol iitth place. It took all season to do It, hut the Tribe's win over El Dorado finally boosted the Chicks out of fifth place In the Arkansas Gazelle's football poll and moved them up to the number four spot, previously held by the Wildcats. The M-6 victory by the Clucks lust week simply switched the two teams in the standings, dropping El Dorado to fifth. II was the tirsl time tills year the Chicks got above fifth place, and they should remain in fourth In the season's Una! rankings. Little Rock continued to hold to first place with Pine Bluff second and Fort Smith third. Of Ihe four lop (cams, Blylhcvllle has the best season record at 8-1. I'ine Bluff is 8-1-1, Fort Smith 7-2-2 and Little Hock 8-3. Remainder of the top ten includes Nashville, De Queen, North Little Rock, Texarkana and Stibiaco.

Martinez was on his way to the welterweight title when he split with his manager in the fall of 1954 and found himself without a bout of any consequence for a year. Martinez has been rusty at times since his return, but impressed onlookers in his workouts here.
