COURIER NEWS MONDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1947 Chicks to Tangle With Ancient Foe • Gam* in Joncsboro To Decide District Three Championship • Blythevlllc's two football teams, the Chicks and the Paps, will begin practicing this afternoon for their games with old grid rivals this w*elc. 1 The Paps, smarting from » 12 to 1 licking at the hands of an underdog Jonesboro team last week, will take on the Bnllpups of Paragould . it Haley Field Thursday night and | their big brother Chickssaws will I meet the Jonesboro Golden Hurricanes in Jonosboro Friday night. • The Paps-Bultpuyis game. *as originally scheduled for Friday jjlght but was moved up until Thnrs- day night in order to give Blythe- vllie fans an opportunity to witness the Chicks-Hurricanes annual battle. . > By al! indications the Paps will be favored In their tussle this week. Tlie Butlpups bowed lo the Osceola Junior Semlnoles by a 14 to 12 count last week, indicating lhal they are not ns power-studded as they have been in past years. But on the olher hand, the Paps were also favored In the Jouesboro game last week | but Ihe tables were turned so almost anything could happen. ; The Chicks, too, will be rated as favorites Ibis week. Their 12 to 7 victory over the Pine Bluff Zebras last Friday night, upped their rut- ing in Ihe Big Ifl Conference considerably and probably will give them at least a two-touchdown listing over the Hurricanes. But never,in the 23-year history of the Chick-Hurricane rivalry lias a game been so Important as the one this year. Not only will tlie two teams be going all ont to defeat their arch foes but the main significance of the game this year Is that .the winner will represent District 3 playoff.
