(Courier News Snorts Whilcr) Paced by ' Itillbuck Robert Held \vho piled up 148 yard.s in seven tries, the Blytheville Junior High School Papooses cut notch No. 8 in their totem pole by defeating the Catholic Junior High School Terriers 33 to 13 at Haley Field last. night. Although Reid scored only on-j touchdown and others scored'more, his brutal off-tackle slants plainly helped the Paps to their fourth straight victory— a triumph thai was substantial but far train overwhelming. The Paps scored two touchdowns in (ess than (hree minutes of play in the lirst quarter, Qiiarterbacit Mel Hay set the stage :or the first tallj--with a 65-yaid run-back of the opening kickoff from his own 15 lo the Terriers' 20. And three plays later Charles "Ruff" Lines drove over from the live-yard linc. Heid added the seventh point ny > cutting inside his own left tackle. The second touchdown came exactly five plays later. Lutes kicked off to the Catholic 15 with fullback Rcago Brown returning to the 37. Brown's pass to Left End Kallaher was intercepted by I,croy Pruiu at midfield uho raced to the Terriers' 16 before being stopped. It took Reid only tivo tries to pick up a firs', down on the t',vo yard line and Pniitt scampered around left end to score standing up. Lilies circled end for . the extra point giving the Paps a H to 0 lead. Visitors March Across Field But Hie Caiholjc loos u-oke up alter that and struck back late in ( the second quarter. Taking over on their own 44 after the Paps' second string had failed to make the nee- I essary yardage, the Terriers began H march that ended only when they hit pay dirt. Halfbacks Lawrence and Huckaby teamed with Brown to move the ball to the Blytheville 32-yarrt line in three plays but a 15-yard holding penalty set them back to the 41. Huckaby heaved a pass to Lawrence for a first down on the PapV 38 and Garbnzinski plowed over guard for a first down on the Brythe- wille M. On the next play Brown scored on a backward puss from Huckaby. The pass [or extra point fell short and at halftime the Paps were leading by a scant seven ixiints. In the third quarter Pops' Paps ca;ne back with added strength. The first siring players came back to open the second half and they added two more tallies before the end 01 the third period. The Paps kicked off to the visitors who quick kicked after two plays had netted them only two yams with the ball rolling out o,\ the BlyihcviJle 30. On the first play following this kick, Reid found a big hole in tile center of the Terriers' line and raced 70 yards for a touchdown. Lutes skirted right end for the extra point making the score 21 to 6 for the Paps. Pap defenses Hold The Terriers tried once again lo pick up yardage on the ground but the Paps' hard' charging iinc kept, their backs throttled and Lawrence quick kicked all the way to the Blythevill two with Lutes' returning to the 40. Quarterback Mel Hay . started wraming up his passing arm ! at this point but failed to llnd his ' receivers and was forced to call on Piiutt lo pick op a first down on the Terriers' 35. On the next play Big Joh:i Hiilclier.5011, the Paps "left, end took the ball on a hand-off from Lutes and stepped off the 35 yards for another score. Hay's pass to Lutes for the extra point was incomplete. The Paps final touchdown came about rnidivay of the fourth stanza after Reid had stopped the Tcr- •ncre' desperation passing attack- too successlul up until this point ^VJt]) an interception on the Blytheville 42. Hay once again tried hi.; passing attack which hadn't been too successful up until in isjioini and shoL one to Reid on the Catholic 49. Reid muscled his way over tackle for 39 y.irris and a first down on the four and Hay passed to Hulcherson In the end zone for the M^ PAGE, BEVRf Hunter, Carrying Deer, Killed by Hi* Own Weapon BENTON, Ark., Nov. 14. ,UP>- ,^ri' C '^ S< '' ViC ' 1S Wcro bcl "B l' l!l!1 - ned today for « year old Noah nminan, who was accidentally shot State police said yesterday Drcn- »an had apparently tripped 1,, the woods and his Run discharged.

But the. move was lo the Terriers' liking and fullback Brown showed his appreciation with a 10-yard icttirn of Elmer Richardson's klckoff following the Paps' lall.v lor a touchdown. Brown passed to Lawrence for tlie extra point 33 to 13 and the game ended four plays later. The Paps completely outclassed their lighter opponents in every shape, form and fashion. Their harcl-chiirgmg line kept the Terriers' ground attack completely bottled up -with tackles Huzzy wun- derlich and Thomas Prince leading the way. And members of the forward wall opened large holes in the opposing line enabling the Pain' backs to slip through for long sains, and their downfield blocking looked good. Their biggest weakness was the pass defense and two Teriier backs. Huckaby and Brown cashed in on tlie situation by completing six passes i:i 13 attempts for a net g.'iin of 153 yards, which was 29 yards more than they made by rushing.
