Game time will be us originally scheduled. 8 o'clock. The change In the Paps-Marked Tree ennifsl (o Thursday night was accepted by most of the Bly- thevillc fans as a break inasmuch '»s It will, give some of them an •pporfunlty to see both the Taps opening tilt here and the ChEcWs - opening game in Fl Dorado. •And to those fans who will have to staj at home Friday, U will give j an opportunity to witness the Osccola Scminoles opening game with Parkin High School al Osccola Friday night. With the unexpected change in the opening elate forcing him to yiibh his practice sessions considerably, Coach Fisher liuckled down on his charges In yesterday's drill period in an effort 1.0 give his tqund the benefit of every minutes practice possible. .

Blocking, Kicking Stressed Combining the "T" formation with ^n occasional Notre Dame shiit. the Paps spent most of yesterday's drill session polishing up on blocking and kicking. However, in the later minutes of the session, Coach Fisher divided his' squad into two teams fqr a gruelling "head knocking 1 ' scrimmage. '. Even though they boast one of Ihe largest squads, in s!zs and number, ever fielded by a junior high school in this section, the inexperience of some of the Coach Fisher's candidates begun to tell on them ye-sierday.

(UP)—The most feared pitcher ^n the American League today—making a "comeback" from winning 28.Barnes last year—Is Bobby Feller. From the way the bleaeherite.s have been howling at him in his own town, you'd think the Cleveland fireball ace had suddenly turned into a scatterarrn slinger who couldn't win a game. Bu'. he Is lead- ins the league' with 18 victories and. from the way he is influencing batters, he'll ho winning back most of those grandstand "friends" Ijeforc long. The runaway New York Yankees were treated to a sample of "tho new" Feller's old tricks at Yankee Stadium last night when his relief pitching saved a 4 to 3 victory for Cleveland. Trailing by that score in the ninth inning, the Yankees, who need only eight, wins to take the pennant, put men on first and third with none on! against Bob Lemon. 'At this pohii, Feller ambicd In from the bull pen and retired Hie side without a score. He got Bill Johnson on a pop-up.
