FAGS TEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1947 r OsceolafoPlay HdenaTofflorrow Semineles Facing OIM of Season's Toughest Games O6CEOLA, Nov. IS.—Performing on foreign toll for three consecutive weekends, the Oeceola High School Seminole* return home this week where they will meet the Helena- West Helena Indians tomorrow night in what Ooach Rube Boyce expects to be his blggrst game of the season. Thli contest will begin the Tribe's final two-week home stand before they ring down the curtain on the 1M7 season in Marked Tree Thanks- jivinj Day. Their last home game of'the season will be with Elaine next week. Otceola football fans are expecting the worst in tomorrow night's contest for the visiting Indians have rolled over several big teams this teason. l^st Veek Coach Jimmy Patterson's aggregation bowled over Uve^Joneaboro Hurricanes 19 to 0 and'the week before that they whipped Stuttgart with ease. Led by Prank Fischel. one of the most sought-after high school foot- bill stars In the South, the Indians will navy an experienced hand at every position when they . line up against the Semlnolp-s. Fischel. a 210-pound all-state end of last year, is the sparkplug of the Indians' offensive attack. On defense he plays at left end but on offensive he is a wingback and leads each play that goes through the line. Boyce to Start Regulars The Seminoles witnessed their final day of hard practice yesterday and Coach Boyce stamped his okav on each of them and pronounced them ready for the conflict. Every member of the Tribe came out of the 'hard game with the Bcebe Btdfer* last week unscathed. Coach Boyce stated yesterday that h« would start his regular lineup ataintt the visiting Indians. His •quad will be outweighed in every department and will be rated as th« underdoes by some H to 'X point*.

The Rebs have charged through six victories out of eight games. Charley Connerly and Barney Poole have become the hottest pigskin combination in the nation. And Ole Miss very well could win the Southeastern Conference title. Add them all tip and yon have a very desirable ball club, one which could entice the customers through the turnstiles In profitable mobs. Tlie Delta Bowl probably would return $30.000 to the Rcbs, whereas the rich Sugar Bowl would net them around $80.000. And the Orange and Cotton Bowls would be far richer than the fledgling locul product.
