PAGE EIGHT BLYTHKVILLE -(ARK.) COURIER NEWS THUKSDAY, AUGUST 28, 19-17 Blytheville Football Coaches Turning on Heat For Candidates for '47 Chick, Papoose Squads Coaches Firman Bynum and Walter Dnvis look advantage 1 of the cooler weather yesterday afternoon and began stiffening the Blythcville Chicks training drills at their Blytheville Country Club training camp. With opening date only two weeks away, the Trihal Chieftains shifted into ))is?h gear as the candidates began showing somewhat, improved physical conditions. After an hour's work at reviewing plays Biid practisliif blocking and ' tackling, Head Coich Bynum divided the 3D candidates into two groups and held , light scrimmage drills. Working off the poiiu'.nr '"1" formation, Bynum schooled the first team in aerial and ground offensive attacks while Coach Davis took charge of defensive attack with team No. 2. As a whole, the two squads showed up nicely in the light scrimmage > with their chief weakness being in blocking. Jack Elliott, the Chicks' 'last year quarterback, and E. b. Gee Jr., formerly of the Paps, shared Die work under center with CD- Captains Billy Wayne McFarland and Harold 'Iraylor doing most of the baV. carrying. Absent from yesterday's drills was Jim Berry, the 100-pound tuckle that came ui> from the Papooses ! this Spring. Jim was confined to his home with a throat ailment. FFA Member Reports Lloyd.Kcontz, a tackle from last year's squad, reported to drills this week after having missed the first week's sessions while attending me State Future 'Farmers of America Camp in Hat Springs, and Robert Ksonce, a reserve guard from the IMS clan fwas forced to the sidelines early this week with a swollen arjde. The Chicks this year will feature a more cxpericn-ed and somewhat heavier team than they had last Fall bat their biggest handicap will still be the lack of reserve power. It was this handicap that caused th'tJr down-fall last year. In (lie backfleM Coach Davis will huve a rather large variety of hU starters. At present he lias It ball curriers frrnn which to choose 'candidates for biuWkld slots with th*e greater part ci them experienced. Ja$k E::io;t, the Chicks' regular quarterback last year Is back again this year to lake charge of tliL- statistical department. Jack added a little weight during the Summer and has improved his hall handling. The two other contenders for the quarterback slot are E. B. Gee Jr.. ] a 163-roundcr up from the Papooses and R. A.

Candidates for the halfback posts are Co-Captains Traylor nnd M3- Farland, a couple ol last year regulars; Donald Huey, of the 1D45 squad was quiutel'jack on the 134'j Gallup.

Allen and Simon will tip the scale around the ISO mark with Owen weighing approximately 1:5. Line to He Heavier The Chicks forward wall will be bolstered with considerable weight by players who bonst quite a bit of experience.
