" , Fear 1'as.sliif Attack Tire Wildcats employ-ilse straight j "T" formation, and have'plays similar jo the ones used by the Chicks, j Coach Davis said. They have several . good'- fast backs and are reported to I be » top-rate passing loam. "I've I heard a lot about their passing." | he Said, "but I didn't, get to see much of It. They didn't need pawing las! week, their long runs were enough for 'pine Bluff." ' But nevertheless, Head Coach Nig Bynym indicated yesterday that he was taking no chances. He went V> on the Chicks' pass defense, xas rather thin in the Tex- arksjna game last week, by using I Pop Moslem's Papooses to run pass- ! ing Jjlays against Hie Chicks. H'- spenf a long period in brushing up the pass defense ami then tapered off fith a light offensive workout. Except for the pass defense drills, yesterday's session was a usual Monday 'atlalr, with the tribal chlcf- tiani demonstrating several North Little Hock plays and then working out k,defense against them. These inchlded several pass plays which the Wildcats employed against the Zebras last week. • Chicks In Fair Shape "Bajring any accidents this week, the Chicks should be In pretty good shape when they tangle with tlie No'rtjisldeis Friday night.

Stoke oj LSU Initiated the probe after the appear- #ncc of an editorial In the McComb ( Enterprise-Journal deploring conditions at'the LSU- Unlvcrslty of Mississippi game Saturday night. Mississippi won 20 to 18, Editor Oliver Emmerich wrote that "many drunks were stretched out upon the concrete seats wher the game was over, not knowing who had won or lost the game." He said the LSU stadium here was littered with liquor bottles. "A mother with a bottle of whiskey in her hivnd turned to her ten- year-old daughter in the seal be- lind her and said, 'Honey, lei nothei 1 pour you a drink,'" Emmerich said. The LSU president Said that he aw "no such state of affairs," but would take Immediate steps to "establish the truth" ol the newspaper's charges. ,"!( football has hit such a moral low that the law cannot be enforced, then It Is lime to question tlw rights of football," Emmerich wrote The editor is a member of Ihu Board of Trustees of Mississippi's institutions of higher learning. Stoke said if he found Emmerich's charges to be true 'he would do "everything in my power 1 ' to correct the situation. Mississippi is legally dry. The McComb editor said the people were "unaccustomed to the availability of liquor except through the bootlegs"' route". Florida Unknown Tafces Early Lead In Pinehurst Meet PINEHURST, N. C., Nov. 4.
