The names will be playect in the South Side nigh School gym. Coach James Fisher tapered off Dre-game drills with a light workout for both of his teams yesterday afternoon. He «Uted [hat he was .still undecided as to who lie would use on the "B" squad and Probably wouldn't announce the starting lineup /or the Bees until Same time. At present guards Dennie ben- try.

No Co-Champs To Be flamed, AAA Declares LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Dec. 12 <UPJ — There will be no co-champions in any division of the Arkansas high school football program, Executive Secretary Johnnie Burnett of the Arkansas Athletic Association announced yesterday. He said that in the case ot a tie game in the football finals this week-end, the winner will be decided by 20-yard penetrations, first downs or yards gained from scrimmage. Meanwhile, all six teams were reported ready lor their tell-tale games. In Class A play. Forrest city will meet Magnolia at Hot Springs'to-i night, in Class B.. Dermott will play Atkins at Demiott tonight. The Double A game between Little Rock and Subiaco Academy Is scheduled for Saturday afternoon in Little Rock. (ARK,)' COUKTEH KETVS ONE !? CROWD By . One Pllnj Playlnsj of the championship games In the Arkansas high school football playoff tonight will officially mark nn end to the 1547 grid season so I'll celebrate the occasion with one more sing at little prognostication. l.lltle Kork vs. Siibineo-Anthorl- tles on prep football in Arkansas are still trying to unravel the mystery of how Subinco ever got past Fay- etleville In (heir first play-off game so I'll not even attempt lo try figure out how they ended up playing Service Quint Stands at Top Y' League squad. Sports In SpurU Waller (Everybody's Wrong But Me) Stewart, sports editor of the Memphis Commercial Appeal Is happy now. Somebody finally picked Olo Miss, Charley Concrly on their All-Ainciicn leam. It was piq Mag" zllle » looks like something might be done about the quail situation In Arkansas. The Slat* Gnme and Fish Commission In a surprise iqove Wednesday ordered filed men t<L survey quail conditions in the state to determine whether the pres- 0/ympie Games Hold Interest of Sports Fans LONDON, Dec. 12. (UP) — Egypt wUl be the only country not competing in the track and field events »t the 1948 Olympic games, It was announced today. ' Of the 33 member nations, only the United States. Britain. Prance. Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Italy and Switzerland have announced intentions of entering all 17 events to be held at the Summer games. Local odd-makers kept rather silent Insofar RS this game Is concerned and no on* around here seems to know what to expect. About the only thing that we have 1 to base a prediction on is Coach Nig Bymim's three-word description of the Subiaco-Nortri Little Rock clash-last week.''-it was pathetic," Byimm said when asked what he thought about the game. And Nig ought lo know, he was one of the thousands of spectators that saw the contest.. ! So, it is my opinion that a person | won't have to be blessed with the deduction ability of Sherlock Holmes j to pick the winner of this game Tlv> I Tigers will retain their stale crown by at least a two touchdown margin Forrest City rs. Magnolia-I had the privilege of witnessing the Para- jgould-Magnolia game in Jonesboro .last Friday night and I must say i that I was rather disnppajntcd by the showing made by Magnolia against- the crippled Bulldogs. The Panthers were rated the team to beat from the very beginning this year but if what they put out in Jonesboro is Ihe best they have '.o offer (hen I'm afraid someone has overestimated their strength. Por/est City lias one of the Dest sinnli<.c!tibs that I have seen thh year and should take the Class "A'' crown without too much trouble l>i>rmo» vs. "Alkins-One guess Is as good as another here so I'll take Atkins as a shot in the dark, No Junior Champions At long last the Blyfcville Papooses have received an answer to ' their claim of the state junior high school football championship. J. M "Johnie" Burnett, executive secretary of the Arkansas Athletic As- •sociation notified A. E. Caldwell, principal of Blytheville Junior High School Thursday that the association was In no position to designate a state champior^and^grced to publish the season records of the 'Paps and the North Little Rock Junior team, the other claimant to the mythical title, so as to let the public marc or less decide who is to be champion. So I dug out the records and found that the Paps in winning eight of their 10 games scored a total of 277 points to their opponents 71 which should bef about tops in the state. And while thumbing through the records I also found that Charles "Ruff" Lutes scorer' 147 of these points which should make him the state's leading scorer in junior high circles. Mr. Burnett also indicated that an all-slate junior high team would be announced this year by asking Blythcville school officials to name their choice for the honor mcl , groups ), ave s , 1Becs|( . rt ,' n diate closing of the season in certain listmlly well-populated areas winch the birds have left because droi I)" °' lns(> Razorbacks Lose Cage Tilt ToNewYorkers NEW YOnK, Dec. 12 (UP) Hie Arkiitissj Razor-backs were en route to Philadelphia today after being soundly trounced In Madl son Square Garden last night bv New York university.
