Olc Mils by 12 It's Stick rhe-Neck-Out Time Again There Must Be Easier Professions •• Every year when football season rolls around, we ask ourself the same question—you jerk, why don't you find an easier way to make a living, like steeple Jacking, politics or coaching? After last week's meager grid picking effort wo were almost tempted to Join Ihe society staff. The only reason we didn't is (hat there aren't nny openings. Missed six out of 24 last week | ball scandal has all of Kentucky's for a .150 average. But, on the athletics on the downgrade? It other hand, that Isn't too bad con- j looker! that way last week.

HOUSTON—The Porkers came through last week so that should mean, if they are running true to form, it's about time they flubbed one. And this would be a good spot, in game in which they have everything to lose and nothing to gain. But it's our guess they won't and that Otis Douglas is In for a better start this year. Arkansas by 13. OSCICOLA VS. WEST MEMPHIS —According (o all reports the Seminoles played a respectable ball game last week even -in losing to Paragoutd. They're more In their class this wec'i and this should be where Dukie Speck's "greenie" Purple and Gold gets off on the right foot. Osceola by six. .-iWILSON VS. HARRISBDRQ — ,tflf>ach Bill Yates' Bulldogs firmly established themselves as the team to beat In the District 3B race again this year by flailing the tar out of a Marked Tree team that was supposed .to be at peak. And after that performance-this one shouldn't be too tough a problem. Wilson by a pair of TD's. NORTH LITTLE ROCK VS. CAMDEN—Our pick as the game of the week In Arkansas. Both "'are unbeaten and Camden looked like the class of the state's Class AA by seeking out a 54-0 vldtory over some South Arkansas team the other day. But North Little Rock has two impressive wins to its credit, one of them a 25-0 decision over Blytheville, which about evens things up. Our vote Is for North Little Rock by seven. OLE MISS VS. KENTUCKY — Marked Tree No Match ] For High-Flying Juniors Undefeated, untied and imscored on in nine consecutive games.

The Paps coupled a strong defense with their powerful running and passing attack to send the Indians scurrying for cover. They built up an early two-touchdown lend and then toyed with their weaker visitors defensively. While touchdown scoring was limited to the main stringera the quarter nnd Coach Stockton kept a steady flow coming and going in the final two laps.

Charles Abbott, the Paps' hard- driving right halfback whose running and defensive play were two of the paps' biggest assets, set tip Blytheville's fourth touchdown when he bulled his way from the 'Blytheville 25 to the Marked Tree 20 on three nice runs.

He pulled down a Marked Tree pass at the Indians' 35 and returned it to the 18. Hall and fullback Kenny Isaacs drove for a first down on the nine from where Hft!I plowed over guard to the end zone.
