PAGE TBH ELYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW» Injury May Keep Mosley Out Of Lineup for Messick Game The possibility of a crippled offense for their opening home game stared the Chicks squarely in the face today as they settled down to the business of getting re;idv for the invasion of the Messick Panthers Friday night. Tommy Mosley, the junior lad < \vho Is being groomed as the Chicks' offensive main spring this year, yesterday appeared - a doubtful starter In Friday night's Haley Field clambake. Mosley, who already was nursing an jnjured right leg. suffered a badly bruised side muscle in the Chicks' opening engagement at North Little RocK last week and he watched yesterday's practice session from the sideline. Tommy received the Injured side muscle when he blocked a North Little Rock tall carrier, who had broken Into the clear, out of bounds. He was removed from the game at the time but later came back. And Mosley is not the only Injured player hampering the Chicks. Montroe Holland, the Tribe's big end. Is stlli nursing a sore ankle and blocking-back Bob (Red) Childrcss suffered an arm injury in the North Little Rock game. However, both, took an active part In yesterday's practice session and barring unfor- scen further injuries they will be ready to go Friday night. Nothing But Bad News There was nothing but disappointing news for the Chicks yesterday. Coaches Russ Mosley and Bill Stancil got a scouting report on the Panthers' game of last week with Memphis' East High and it. too, spelled bad news, Messick trounced the East team 27-0 lest Thursday night and. according to the scouting report, the Panthers' could easily have doubled the score. Coach Floyd (Preacher) Roberts' Panthers employ a tight T offense with the line sometimes split, the scouting report said, and they have a fine array of backs and a fast moving line to make their offense BO. Yesterday the Chicks spent a lengthy drill on blocking, tackling and other fundamentals before returning to a full time scrimmage session. They . also spent a considerable mmount of time on their punt and kickoff returns. About the only piece of good news the Tribal coaches received yesterday was the reporting of a new candidate. Harry Brown, a sizeable . lad who has been out for the B team, moved up to the Chicks yesterday but he will be of little Immediate help is he has no previous football experience.

(F) — Three days of rains and a soggy field at Hart- veil stadium have put a big crimp In Southern Association playoffs. « For the third day in a row ye&- terday the fourth" game of the semifinal Southern playoff between Atlanta and Mobile was rained out. Another attempt will be made tonight In Mobile to get the game going. Memphis must wait to see who Trlns the best of seven series which Mobile leads two victories to one. Memphis polished off Chattanooga with four straight victories. But even after Mobile and Atlanta, have settled their differences, and the winner of that series has played the championship series with Memphis, Southern Association baseball won't Ije complete. After the playoffs comes the Dixie series between the Southern and Texas playoff champions, a best of seven series. us Picks Jersey Joe To Keep Titl e Brooklyn New York St. Louis- Philadelphia Chicago Cincinnati Boston Pittsburgh IN THE MIDDLE — Back In the middle of the Chicks' offense this year are these two lettermen center Leon prlvett and quarterback Bob (Red) childress.

Three Cardinal pitchers, starter Al Brazle, Mike Clark and Willard. Schmidt, were, under the guns In the sixth Inning, the biggest single inning of the year for the Giants.

The Giants assault was led by Bobby Thomson and Whiter Lockman, who each had a home run, and Alvin Dark, who had two doubles In the bis sixth. The lone Cardinal run came In the seventh when Enos Slaughter tripled and made it home on a long fly by Hal Rice. Stan Muslal kept his league-lending battering average at .336 with one double in three trips. That leaves Musial II points ahead of Franklc Baumholtz of Chicago, who is second.

(AP Photo) All But Experts Favor Indians and Dodgers By. JOE RE1CHI.ER AP Sports Writer Can you figure this? The Yankees lead Cleveland by 2K games while Brooklyn leads the Giants by three. The Yankees must play eight of their remaining 11 games on the road while the Dodgers have eight of their 11 at home. Yet the experts-those who know baseball best-figure the Yankees n cinch to win the American League icnnant and 'declare the National League race a toss-up between the Brooks and Giants. Why? The Yankees have the confidence of champions," a. veteran Jnscball man said. "They win the >ig ones. They don't scare easily. They have (he solid men In Allle Reynolds, Vic Rascht, Ed Lopat, Yogi Berra and Phi! Rizzuto. "The Indians may be a better all-round club. But they lack the confidence of champions." And the Dodgers? "If it were. any team but the Dodgers." the learned baseball man replied, "I'd say I don't know- how they could lose with a three- game edge. "But the trouble with the dodgers is they cannot forget last Senators, year. Especially when this race is! following last year's script almost to tile letter. Every time the Giants win and they lose, the Dodgers are reminded of last year's debacle. They know it can happen because it already, has happened. Neither manager-Leo Durocher of the Giants nor Charlie Dressen of the Dodgers-Is doing any talking these days. Not even after Monday's victories that left them Etill three games apart with 11 to go. Brooklyn received another shoddy pitching nei'formance-this time from Carl Ersklne-but their big bets atoned for the pitcher's lapse. The Brooks pounded out an 11-5 triumph over the Cincinnati Reds. Jackie Robinson .and Duke Snider hammered two homers apiece. Sal Maglie looked like the Mag- lie of old as he pitched the Giants o a six-hit, 12-1 victory over the 3t. Louis Cardinals.

But If any of them, except Octree i aamcs scheduled tills week, took it Sauer of Baylor, were sure of their first-string picks, they were keeping mighty mum about It. There were indications that Coach Dutch Meyer's boys might not be ready for front-line opposition to early in the season. Some of them appeared fagged out and tired Monday after a heavy dose of running on kickoffs and punt returns. But TCU—on its last ""season's record only—will enter the Kansas game a slight favorite. Gil Barfosh, senior quarterback for the Progs, was still out of the heavy work as the week started and it remained doubtful that he would see much action against the Jay- hawks. The hol-and-cold Arkansas Razorbacks, propping for their Saturday night clash In Little Rock with the Oklahoma ARgies, went through brisk workouts at Fayetteville Monday, coach Otis Douglas paid particular attention to oasslng as his ouarters—Lamnr McHan. Bob st Pierre, and Ralph Troillet—pitched to ends and halfs. Douelas appeared satisfied with his defensive platoon. Bears Optimistic ,The optimistic Baylor Bears, meanwhile, reviewed offensive and defensive assignments a?ain Tuesday as Coach George Sauer polished his Bear crew on duties they face against Wake Forest in Waco Saturday. Sauer had some starters already picked. He slated Cotlon Davidson and Don Carpenter for starting halfs and named L. C. Dupre as a first line replacement, Baylor, as the week started, could be rated little better than an even chance against Wake Forest. T!ie challenging Texas (Longhorns, with six practice) sessions scheduled this week, were fast get- tins ready for their Invasion of Baton Rouje, La., to meet LSU. It was to be,the first night game- Saturday In IS years for the Longhorns and Coach Ed Price set night workouts for Wednesday and Thursday to accustom the team to-playing under the lights. Agyies Retuildinj Back Gib Dawson and Gilmer Spring remained on the bench with injuries and it was doubtful If they would see service against LSU's Tieers. The other conference team playing Saturday,'Texas A&M. planned no full scrimmage before its game Saturday in Houston with the University of Houston.

ASC Gridders Break with AIC Prexy Soys School Has Not Paid Dues, May Quit Basketball JONESBORO IIP} — Dr. Carl Reng. president of Arkansas State College, says the school Is "not a member of the Arkansas Intercollegiate conference in football" and may not compete In the conference basketball race.

"We nre not members of the AIO in football." commented Reng. Asked if State would be a member in basketball, he replied: "We haven't decided definitely about that yet. but I think not. "If you can't compete for a championship, I can't see any point in belonging to a conference." The president added that "we ar» 'ooking forward to belonging to some conference" but at the present State will remain an independent.
