Coach "Nig" Ryiuiiu had vevy little comment to make on the Chicks' showing Friday night. He offered no nlibis, only high praise for Ihe El Dorado team. ''The boys made :t fair showing but they were just outclassed. Those Wildcats have plenty of power, and three deep," the Chick mentor said. According to reports from the contest the'Wildcats were just as good as they were rated, 'they iiad power'!)! every department and plenty of it, one member of the Chicks stated. But tho less shoulel be looked upon as a moral vi^iory. The Cat.s were rated as a Ihree-touchdmvn favorite, and the Chicks held Ihcai to that margin, which is not at all bad.

Coach Bynum, naturally noted several mistakes in the Chicks game and will probably spend this week in trying to correct them before Coacli Woody Johnson brings his Bulldogs to town.

Neither Ihe number of fumbles nor the yardage lost through fumbling, were listed in the summary of the hut. according to reports, fumbling hurt them Just as bad, if not worse than the penalties.
