Poplar Bluff i.? doped at least three touchdowns belter than the Timers, and the Mules will be, seeking sweet revenge for their defeat at the hands of the Ticcrs in 1948. Added to the woes ol Coach Dutch Boepple of the Tigers this week was the announcement bv phy.-.icians that B'ackin Tarplcy, swivel-hipped IfttT Tiger back and cap;ain. would probably be out for the rest of this season, bccr.usc of a knee in- Jury received, in, ihe Iraca; wlt'.i Ksvti.
