Undefeated B Team Gets 68-24 Victory Showing more speed and hustle than any time since before the Christmas holidays, Blytheville's Chickasaws raced to their ninth victory of the season here last night, swamping the Piggott Mohawks by a score of 82-47. After a tight first quarter, Coach Jimmy Fisher's Tribe opened up with a lightning barrage and continued to widen the gap in the last three quarters, pouring through 29 points in the final period. In the preliminary game, the Chick B squad kept i,ts long string of victories intact with an easy 68-24 win over the Mohawk B. In their win over the small but fast Piggott team, the Chicks came up with one of their most balanced scoring attacks of the season. Everyone of the starting five tallied 10 or more point. Cobb, Abbott High Danny Cobb, the only senior on the starting lineup, and Charles Abbott were tops for the Chicks. Each sacked 14 points. They .were closely followed by Freddie Akers with 13, Fred Hodge with 11, and Bobby Jones with 10. The Chicks looked much improved in rebounding also, as they stymied the Piggott attack by limiting the Mohawks to a minimum of shots. Abbott and Hodge led in defensive rebounds wih eight each. The greater speed and faster movement of the ball on offense gave the Chicks many more shots ban they have been taking in other recent games — and it didn't seem to damage their accuracy rtaing. 31 of 74 Cardwell Tops Manila 56-53 Lions in Poor Showing; Girls Get 51-26 Win Out of 74 tosses at the basket Cardwe n MANILA—Manila's Lions turned in their worst performance of the year last night and were beaten by Cardwell, Mo., 56-53 in a game played at Cardwell.

Weaver's Answer on Taking Arkansas Job Is Due Today FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — DeWitt Weaver, Texas Tech's 42-year-old head football coach, was supposed to make up his mind by tonight, or at least by tomorrow, as to whether or not he wishes to leave Texas for Arkansas. University of Arkansas officials asked the white-haired coach, who has successfully led Tech's Red Raiders in the Border Conference, for an answer. Weaver hasn't received a formal offer, but apparently his acceptance, or even a maybe, would make the offer of the Arkansas job, vacated by Bowden Wyatt, who switched to the University of Tennessee, a mere formality. Arkansas Athletic Director John Barnhill talked with Weaver when both were in New York attending a coaches' meeting and Wyatt's departure seemed likely. Should Weaver decide to throw his football fortunes in with the Razorbacks, he'll leave a contract at Tech still with four years to run at 513,000 a year. He probably would be offered a contract at Arkansas with a comparable salary. Arkansas apparently would favor Weaver bringing a staff of assistants to the Ozarks. Fine Assistants He recently stated that hU 1954 assistants were the best he ever .ssembled. They are Seattle Feathers who coaches the backs defensively, while Buz Warren teaches them offense; Dwight Posey, a Georgia product, who coaches the line on defense .while Dee Andros, an Oklahoma football star, works the line offensively; and Bud Sherrod, a former Tennessee end, who teaches his old position. Meanwhile, Wyatt, and the four assistants he brought with him from Wyoming, have left Payette- vllle for Tennessee where Wyatt will 'steer the Volunteers. Other Names Of course, speculation on Arkansas' next coach has included other names besides Weaver, but most speculation seems to be coming from other sources than the university. U of A officials have mentioned only Weaver and Frank Broyies. one of Bobby Dodd's assistants at Georgia Tech, as possibilities. The university's Faculty Committee on Athletics, charged with finding a coach and submitting his name to the Board of Trustees, met yesterday. But William Good, assistant to the university president, said there were no new developments on the coaching situation. The 1954 Giants won the National League race like true champions. j They defeated all seven loop rivals in the season's series. Erdelatz Spikes Talk, Signs Navy Contract ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Ah, security! That sentiment did the mombo behind the smile of Eddie Erdelatz yesterday as he boarded a plane for his native California. Articulate Eddie had just signed a new five-year contract as head football coach of,Navy. All the informed sources agreed —though Navy and Erdelatz kept quiet — that it called for about $17,000 a year. Erdelatz, a long-recognized defensive tactician who graduated magna cum laude last season from the post-graduate school of advancing the ball, has been summarily successful at beating Navys archrival. Four of his five Navy teams have whipped Army. Last Nov. 27, an undersized bunch of athletes Erdelatz dubbed "the team named desire" did it again, 27-20. Then they smeared a little icing on the cake with a 21-0 victory over Mississippi New Years Day in the Sugar Bowl. •The team finished with a 7-2 mark. Erdelatz said yesterday he had a desire ... a desire to end his head coaching career where it began, at Navy. "I am very happy and proud to continue as head football coach at the Naval Academy," he added. Within the last m«nth. printed rumor had him headed first to the San Francisco 49ers and as late as yesterday morning to the Los Angeles Rams. Erdelatz said he had talked with President Dan Reeves of the Rams, but no offer was made. Capt. Elliott Loughlin, Navy's director of athletics, said yeslerday: "Eddie's value to the Naval Academy is not confined to the mere winning of football games but also to the manner in which he coaches and the fine leadership qualities demonstrated in his handling the squad."
