They passed, ran and scored almost at will and Pop Mosley, the'Paps' mentor, took advantage of the opportunity to use his reserves and tlie second and part of the third string the greater « ' i't of tile gamo. + Tile Pd;>g scored In every period and nvlce In the third quarter Just for good measure. The hard-charging Papoose linemen kept the Greyhounds completely bolilt'ri up and except for one piay, a touchdown pass In the closing minutes of the game, the'entire contest was played In Newport territory. Their first, marker came shortly after the opening klckoff, Charles "Ruff" Lutes kicked to the Grey- pups or: the Newport two with Smlli!. the fullback, returning to Ihe 25. cruse, the quarterback, on an attempt sneak, fumbled on the *t with a Blythevllle man recovering.'

The entire second siring took over at this point with the first team going to the bench where they remained ror the rest of the first half except for an occasional single substitute. The Paps scored again shortly after the opening of the second quarter The Greypups gained possession of the ball deep In their own territory by virtue of a Blytheville fumble but punted after two plays had netted their* no gain.

Buzzy Wnnder- llch.' the Pans left tackle, took Newport's kickolf opening the second half on his own 35 and raced all the wny to trie Greypups 4T before belnt? downed. Lutes, on a beautiful broken-field run, went son plowed over from there. Dick Reid attempted to sneak over for the extra point but was stopped at the line of scrimmage. In the fourth period Elmer Richardson, the second string center and line backer, broke through, to , , Mock Smith's punt on the Newport 13 and covered the blocked kick j himself to set the stage foe the ' Paps' final tally.
