FRIDAY, AUGUST 25, 1050 BLYTHEVIU.E (ARK.) COURIER Chicks Begin Hard Contact Work as Drill Gait Quickens ifc Rlylheville Chicks, with three days of pi-action under their belts, got their first taste oMianl contact work yesterday as Coach Russ Mosley pushed his charges into a faster coiuiitioniiiK K'liL. three weeks re- + . ,—. opening night,' With less than Jr.aimng before C'iridi Moslcy and his assistant, Hill stancil, appeared anxious to £<?t on \vith the more serious wurk of the pre-Keason training ^esiimi. The Chicks, are slated to open lucir 1930 .season fSepl. 8 at Haley Field against, Barlletl, Tenn. Yesterday, the Chicks wi'.npsscd rxic-nsive blocking and Hci:li:i^' Practices and then tapered off with a ncine-too-lighl dummy scrin\- ma»c.

The new boys were Montroe Holland, the Paps' big center of iast, year, and Larry bunsford, n sive younsElcr who Is coming out for football for his first lime. Luns- [ord is an end candidate, standing over the six-feet tall and weighinj near the 180-pound mark. Two of the brightest features of yesterday's drills were the running of the backs and the passing of Dick Reid and Mel Hay. Reid, a quarterback candidate, hit his receivers well on short flings from i.he T formation and Kay looked equally as pood throwing the long or.c-s. These t'.vo boys are expected to divide the passing chores this fall. The backfield, which will be (he Tribe's strong point this year, crashed through Ihelr holes nicely. Fullback Robert Reid looked like his' old self powering through Ills Inside holes while Charley (Rutf) Lutes handled the outside work.. The back-field, barring Injuries, will be the strongest point on reserve strength, too. Right now there, are only eight candidates for baKkfield berths but all are good lo^flng prospects. Those expected to furnish the re- «erve strength is Freddie S:nith. » haHback last year who has been moved to thp. blocking back post behind Dick Reid; Donald Gently and Johnny O'Brien, the Pans' touchdown twins of 1949 and Charley Mays, squatty, well-built newcomer &ho, in all probability, will understudy Robert Reid at fullback, The Chicks' bij question mark right now Is their line. They have experienced men at only four positions. The other three are filled by either sophomores or last year reserves whn saw little action. Four End Candiadfn At the ends yesterday. Coach Slancil had Muck Hay. a letterman, Jim Gosset and 'red Vance. Vance j letlered as a halfback last year but is being groomed as a passible t t- fensive lineman. Luusford was the (ourtU enn candidate but needs experience. At. tackles were Bill Boyd. a 200- pltfitier- who lettered nt that pnsi- tiSS' behind Jim Berry last fall, Quincy Korige, a 180-pounrter up Ivom the junior ranks. Eusene Koonce a squadman last year and John Hornbcrger, a newcomer. At guard.-, L,-rcy Crbcr wr.r, the only veteran with Alack Koonce and Billy,. Bert Mayo. 1949 squadmnn. alternating at the other sentinel jwist. Stancil won't have too much of a problem at his other starting guard post, though, when Jerry Phillips, who lettered last fall, reports. Phillips is workin? and i: not expected to report for a lew moie days. ,f. C. Droke. last year's regular center, is back '.his year and probably will alternate at the pivot hole with Holland.

"As an amateur I had to he restrained because some of those ten^ nis groups can be a bit stiff-necked," declared the curvaceous, green- eyed stunner of the courts. "Now I'm my own boss and I can wear anything I want." Hold those corpuscles, boy.-s, because Gussy says you ain't seen nothing yet. "I'll wear a lot of flimsy little things," she added. "Leopard -skin, ballerina skirts and, oh yes. of course, some of that famous lace. "I intend to wear — or not wear — what does the most for my figure and I promise you it won't be conservative."

(;P»-One of the big laughs of the baseball season came when the Yanks and Browns made n trade last June and prexy Bill DeWitt of SI. Louis said that Tom Ferrick and Joe Oslrow- skl were worth $250.000 apiece. . . Fcrrlck, a 35-year-old relief pitcher, had appeared in 16 games for a 1-3 record and 30-year-old Ostrowski had done about as much, . . . Some Yank fans, with their sights set on a starting hurlcr, insisted the pair wasn't as valuable as Wiley Moore's celebrated pair of mules, Babe and fluth . . . Bui If the Yanks should come through lo n pennant, nobody would quibble about the evaluation of Ferrlck. . . They're already calling him the Wiley Moore or Joe Page of the 1950 team and Ihc best reliever In Hie league. . . . when Tom deflly choked off a Tiger rally Wednesday, it was his IQth appearance as a Yank and the 12th of those games he club had won. He's credited with Ive victories and two losses. . . It would be quile a relief to see Tom and the Phils' Jim Koiutanty operate In Ihe world series.

W) -r- Everybody has climbed' on the Frank Stranahan bandwagon at the national .amateur golf tournament. Seldom, if ever, in Ihe 50-year history of the meet has such a prohibitive favorite emerged In the semi-final stage. Stranahsn himself Is almost us confident as the rallbirds. The Internationally - Icnown, 28 - year - old Toledo golfer has never gained the semi-ftnal round before. His best showing since 1946, when he set the U.S. title as his prime objective, was reaching the quarterfinals In IMS. Then Raj Pillows trounced him T and 5.
