PAGE SIX HI-YTIIKVILLE (AKK.) COURIER NEWS Line-up Changes Loom for Chicks Team Works Hard In Preparation for Game With Bulldogs With their spirit unblemished by Uie 23 to 6 licking handed them by (lie El Dorado Wildcats in their opening same last week, the Hly- thevillc Clilcks took to the prac- tlcc Held at the Country Club ycs- terdny afternoon for the first session of a week's earnest practice before meeting the Paragould Hull- dogs at Haley Field Friday night. Coaches Nig Bynum and Walter Davis held a long scrimmage session for . their charges yesterday, stressing mostly their ground offensive. Coach Bynum, apparently displeased with showing made by some of the Chicks In last neck's contest, indicated two possible lineup changes in yesterday's drill session. Roy Smith, the six-foot plus, ISO-pound second string end. was shifted to defensive left tackle with R. B. Iloclge, who alternated • post last week, beini; shifted to with Jim Berry at the left tackle center. This change, if made, would ncUl- nn extra amount of weight in the Chick forward wall and possibly add a'little more power to the weak side of the line, Bui whether or not this change will be penn.inenl depends entirely on the showing the tvo lads make. Injury Bothers Trayhir Absent from yesterday's drills was Harold Traylor, Hie Chick's fleet- footed halfback and alternate captain. Traylor was plaugcd by a back,aliment all through the three- week pre-season training drills, and the injury continues to bother'him considerably. Billy Bracey and John Hoover, first string guard nnd center respectively, were sidelined yesterday due to slight injuries received in the El Dorado game but both should be ready for service by Friday night. / While the Chicks were bumping heads in hard scrlimnnec. Coach James Fisher, working without the services of Pop lYUslcy. ran his Paps through only light dummy .scrimmage, stressing mostly their pass offense. Fisher divided • his candidates Into three • squads and scut them through long passing drills In preparation for their game with the Helena Papooses this week.

The U_'moiis will ]>robably b, nK on th? linr-pliiuging of fullback Austin Wilson, and the pitching arm of Harvey Johnson. Johnson will b; tossmi; them to Johnny Thompson, riitl Purvis La miry, or yiant Ernest Howell. Clyde Scott is the most likely .starter ainoni; Bain'nill's live tlill- biieks. Scott can lie counted on to lafce advantage of any opciiinK and is one o! Arkansas' best defensive players. Meanwhile, bone-crushing lulluiicic Leon Campbell will make the holes where liicy don't cxlsi. The vcniiiinder of Arkansas' starling twklield will probably feature Alvin Duke at wlngback and Joyce Pipkin in the bun-king back s|X)L. 'With backs like Anbrey Fowlc: 1 . John Hoffman. Ken Holland.

The /Ip and bounce that was th^ hallmark of the Card world champ- Ion.; of '48 apparently had deserted liicsc IVedbirds, who have last Iheir last Ihree games and fallen .seven- and-a-half f;ames behind. It probably doesn't help Ihe Cards lo real- Izc lhat the lask of defending their lllle now is practically impossible, since any combination of six Dodger wins or Card defeats will scn:l the flag to Brooklyn. Dayi like yesterday, when they lost to the Giants 10 to 5, offer the Cards little hope. St. Louis threw five, pitchers into the fray but couldn't stop the _ Oianis' 12-hit attack, which was led by Bill Rigney'r, five hits and i Walker Cooper's 32nd home run. i At w;i.s the losing hurlcr ] while reliefer Ken Trlnklc gained | his eighth win for New York.
