Nov. 5. (UP) — Entertainment value 01 Arkansas high school football for the ncxi couple of weeks will take a decided slump but it will provide fans an opportunity to prepare themselves for the district playoffs which lead to the state championship. Thanks4,0 the Little Rock'Tigers and the El Dorado Wildcats, who battled to a scoreless tie in El Dorado last wcelJ, the play offs appeal- to manifest more interest than last .season when the title was practically conceded to Little Rock. X The Tigers went, through the season undefeated against state competition and then amplified their gridiron ability by brushing off the Louisiana champions in a post season- engagement in New Orleans- Toy Bowl game. » Eight teams are eligible to' com-' pete In the play o«s which get. underway Friday, Nov. JJ. Thanksgiving. Day games will b« devottd to traditional rivalries, but th* playoffs will be resumed December 5, when- four games are scheduled between semifinalisb. The championship game will'be played the following week. Since twt districts have no Double A teams, Arkansas Athletic Association officials will have to selert two teams to complete the bracket. However. District Five will likely be represented by the Little Rock Tigers and the North- Little Koek Wildcats, since the two greater Little Hock elevens have a good chance of winding up with similar records Th« Tigers and Wildcats meet Thanksgiving Day but that game has no bearing on the state championship playoffs. Seven Head f«r PUy*ffi Athletic officials must certify district winners following games of Nov. H, Right now the following teams appear headed for the playoffs. District One—Payetteville. District Three—BlythcvSle. District J*our—Subtaoo. ._-; District live—Little RoW and North Littl* Rock. Whit* Sox Pay Flnt U of A Basketball Hopes Pinned bn Kok and Williams Cotirt arkaiiii. , Under tlmt compilation seven teams will be ready lo'go Into the final playotfs. which means that officials .-will have lo select, another team. However, two move weeks of competition might straighten out a few things nnd eliminate the complications. Little Rock and North Uttle Rock engage ancient foes in this week's encounters. The Tigers play Rn.s- sellville in a home game.while the Wilo^ats journey to Blytheville. Little Rock wille be a heavy favorite over the Crimson Cyclone by North Little Bock might be hard pushed by an Improved Blytheville eleven. Probably the best game carded (or greater Little Rock fans will be the Catholic High School—Sublaco game'at Tiger Stadium Sunday afternoon. Madison Hell of SMU Is'Coach of the Week' NEW YORK, Nov. 5.
