TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 194T BTjYTHEVrLLl (ARK,)' COURIER KETVS PACK ELBTKNf Chicks'Playoff Game Advanced Jim Thorpe, Now a Saloon Greeter, Eyes Return to Sports of His Youth BlythevilU T«om To M«tt LittU Rock In Tigtra' Stadium Blytheville'a Chicks' and th* Little Rock Tijer* will meet in their flnt- round play-off game in Tiger Stadium at Little Rock next Thursday night, according to an announce- atent last night by Coach Firman ^IB" Bynum, director ot Blytheville High School athletics. Both Coach Bynum and Wilson Matthews, head mentor ol the Tigers, had sought to book the game for Friday night In Little Rock but previous arrangements for the use of Tiger Stadium in another game on that night forced the two coaches to elect between Thursday and Saturday night. The game was first scheduled to be played Saturday night, Coach Bynum stated, but was moved up to Thursday night due to both teams facing tough opponents In their Thanksgiving tilt-s next week To Piny In Little Root Tn announcing the time and sll of the contest, Coach Bymim point ed out that he elected to play 111 game in Little Hock because Liltla Rock offtciali flatly refused lo return 'to Blytheville on grounds that they had already played one game here this season. He said thai, it was either play the game in Little Rock or on a neutral field and he chose Little Rock because of the seating capacity of Tiger Stadium. The Chicks, unscathed from their « id battle in Batesville last w&ek, urned to the practice field yes-day to start preparations for the play-off game. Coach Bynum ran his charges through R tough hour- long scrimmage session and tapered off with wind sprints. B. C. Allen and L. W. FHzhugh, a couple'of fiist-slringers who missed practice all" last' week due to injuries received in the North Little Rock game, returned to the practice field yesterday but witnessed light workout* only. Both players are still limping from their leg injuries and Coach Bynum expressed doubt that they would be ready for the Little Bock clash.

Bill "Buzzy" Wunderlich, the Paps regular left tackle, was lost to the squad last week due to an appendectomy and will be out for the remainder of the season. Bill Boyd a 160-pound reserve will in all probability get the starting nod at the le!L tackle post this week. Boyri, who is witnessing his first year in football, has seen considerable action at both tackle slots this season and ha» turned In several good performances this season.

(UP)—Jim Thorp*, u a barefoot kid, sot bit and strong fSihinj In the streams and stalking game in the fields of nls native Oklahoma. Jim is pushing 60 now. Someday he'd like to return to the sporU that fathered hit career—» career that made him the |T«ttMt athlete who ever lived. As it is now, old Jim la lUrllnj new life—one as a "greater" In West Madison Street saloon. He's the guy who shakes you by th« hand when you walk In to bujr * highball or a martini. It's not distasteful, understand, and old Jim's not beefln'. But, It's not exactly his idea of the most pleasant way to grow old gracefully. "I'm not broke," he said today. "And I won't ever b« broke. It's Just that I want to settle down with something I know how to do—and there doesn't seem to be anything In sports for me." The big Indian, whose stringy mane still in coal black, has little left but memories and a dog-eared scrapbook to show for th* many years he put in as a top-notcher n sport*. Gone ire the hundreds of medals he won u a star In every branch of track and field. The simon- pure* yanked them from hi* trophy case amid urgly cries of professton- llsm. Gone also are most ot the million dollars old Jim earned in pro football, in the movies and u in out- lielder for the Brave*, the New York Glanta and the Cincinnati Reds. The scrapbook contains samples of the btlrkms of words the writer fellowa put in the papers about hun. He was called—without challenge—the greatest track and field star who ever uulled on spikce. The greatest football player and the first man ever to throw a forward pace. A great baseball player who was a .MO man with th« stick and who played flawlesaly In th* outfield. "I'm not through, he said. "Dont put that down. Another guy and I are planning on starting a hunting and fishing lodge down in Florida on the Indian River. Me u a glad-hander and maybe aa head guide." Indian Jim Thorpe ought to fit in thert all right. Upset Specialist Frnka Foresees Big Tulane Loss ATLANTA, Ga., Nov. 18.
