The Chicks, who saw their rcc-«- '• —— ord slip hack to the .500 mark last week, are scheduled to meet ihe Memphis South Side Scrappers nt Hnley Field Friday nipht In a game that should decide whether or not the Chicks were playing over their heads when they upset Messlck of Memphis and Jackson, Tenn., on successive weekends. And \vhile Ihe Chicks are ready- ins for Conch Hick Swing's Scrappers, Coach Harold Stockton's undefeated Junior Vapooses will be busy getling ready for a tough as- tlgnment this week, too. I'aps to Jackson The Paps, who haven't lost in 12 utralght games, are scheduled to take their unbeaten record to Jack- ton, Tenn., Thursday night for a crack nt the reputedly tough Jack- eon Cubs Coach Jimmy Fisher's I? team ]n's reserves for Thursday night, but. Osccota's head coach, Ddkle Speck, explained that the tilt would have to he canceled. "We Just have 18 men out now," Sports Roundup— Charles Starts on Long Comeback Trail Friday lly GAYI.E TAIJIOT NEW YORK (AP) — Eraani Charles, the cautious pugilist, starts hack up the long comeback trail this coming Friday night when he fights Cesar Brion, a big, awkward galoot from the Argentine, at Madison Square Garden. E/zard figures to win this one y-Hhout too much trouble. Almost everyone over voting age has beaten Brion nt one time or another. But In Kzwrn's particular case, n .simple victory will and he knows it. not be enough. the Osccola coach pointed out, "and with a tough ball game against Portagevllle. Mo., coming up Friday night. I.would have to use rome of my boys who will play on Friday in the game wttii Blytheville's Bees," he said. The Paps started getling ready for their week's work today with long workouts. The Decs scrimmaged among themselves and then took on the Chicks in n dummy drill find the Paps held n long scrimmage session all their own with another one slated for today. Offensive Prill The chicks, who emerged from the tough Whltehaven tilt wllh no broken bones but with several bruised muscles, spent considerable time working on their new sprcrid formation which they unveiled against the Tigers Inst week. . Then after the of/enslve .workout they got a look at some South Side pla>« obtained by scouts who saw ' the' Scrappers subdue Ihe same Whltchaven tram that sidetracked tho Chicks last week by a 20-M score three weeks ago. The Chicks were to get hack to scrimmages today! with the same Elated for tomorrow. Then Thursday they take the day off, with only a light dress rehearsal workout on ihe agenda. . Turner Wins Tiineup-Fight •ALliENTOWN, Pa. f/P;—Gil Turner, Philadelphia welterweight, tuned up for his rematch with Bobby Dykes late next month by gaining a technical knockout over Johnny Cunningham of Baltimore last night.: Referee Jack Saurlna stopped the fight niter 1:35 of the.fifth round of the scheduled ten round main bout to prevent Cunningham from being badly .hurt. Turner, who dropped n welter title bout by the same method to Kid Gavllan ,at Philadelphia last summcr, wetghcd 148 71 nnd Cunningham, 145 VI. Tiie young PhHndelphtan dropped Cunningham for a nine count In the fifth and when Cunningham regained his feet, he encountered n flurry of lefts ond rights as the referee stepped in to stop the liRht. Turner dropped n split decision to Dykes at New York's Madison Square Garden last month. He scheduled to meet the Miami, Fla., battler ngnln nt "Philadelphia late next month. K the former s to become one of the foremost contenders for Rocky Mnrclnno's title, he must win this one impressively, preferably by n knockout. The situation really Is a very peculiar one. The Cincinnati Negro lias prover! on occasion that lie comes close ID being a great fighter, Actvmlly, he won the crown back from Jersey Joe Walcott In their last meeting at Philadelphia as several million televiewers can testify, just about the only ones who didn't fhfnfc K//.urd deserved, the decision were the officials, and they hnd tho vote. And now, such a short tfmc later, Charles finds himself on the outer fringe, striving desperately to get (jack In the running. A'-purely personal hunch here Is that no nwtter what lie docs, Ezyjird will never get a shot at Marciano. On ft given night, Ezzard might cut Rocky Into ribbons. The men who guide the new champion's destinies arc among the smartest In the business. They will make few mistakes. Vic Sclxas of Philadelphia, playing captain of the American Davis Cup tennis team, Is scheduled to leave for New Zealand and Australia within n few days, and there still seems to bo some uncertainty about who Is going with him. Though no official announcement has been made, our information Is that straight Clark of Los Angeles probably will be on the plane with Sclxas. Ham Richardson, the former junior champion from Baton Rouge, will not leave for Sydney until late In November. So far, only F.olxao and Richardson have been named on the team. It has been taken more or less for granted that Tony Trabert would be given another leave of absence from the Navy to help challenge the Aussles for the cup.

The result gives Michigan State a record of three out of Jour firsts. Only In the second week did the Spartans falter. That was when Wisconsin took over the top rung. State was second then.

Ark State's Richie Woit: '" • / 165 Pounds of Grid Dynamite JONESBORO (AP) —iSee- ng Kichie Woit around the campus in his street clothes, 'ou'd never pjitess this shy, jaby-faced boy is a package of football dynamite. But he Is. In six games at half- jack for tho Arkansas Slate Col- ege Indians this season, the 20- ear-old Junior from Chicago has gained 623 /ards rushing and has scored 12 touchdowns. In both ;round gaining and scoring he ranks high among the nation's small college players. He's the chief reason Arkansas late has won four games, losing only to Mississippi state and Tennessee Tech. A strong candidate for Little All- America honors, Woit Is described by State grid mentor Forrest (Frosty) England as "the best player I ever coached." England can, and does, talk for hours about his 163-pound sparkplug. Drive, Bounce, Balance Richie Is wrapped up In football the year round," says England. "He's short, compact and his natural high knee action gives him the drive, bounce and balance which make him the great player he Is. , "He gels less practice than anyone on the squad, and that's on my advice. He's nlways In condition and the rest does him good. Usually, he needs It, cince all our opponents are primed with Woit as Iheir chief target. "He's the pel of the team...He never tries to hog the scoring... When we whipped previously vm defeated Florence, Ala., State Richie scored twice. He lugged the ball practically all the way nnolher time, but when pay dirt was In sight, another back took it over. 1 Woit has averaged belter than six yards a carry, and Is Slate'e best pass receiver. Although his team was outclassed In that game he netted 88 yards against Mis- sissippi State.

The second fall started with all six In the ring, but after 20 minutes, Moody decided he was getting the worst of It, from the Kawal- sfci's, and gave the match to Fields and his partners. After the victors had left the ring, the Kawalski's started working Moody over. Then Welch, Fields and Cordova came to the weary referee's rescue In the preliminaries, Welch beat Ivan KawalskI in 11 minutes with drop kicks, Karl KawalskI bea Cordova with right ' crosses and Moody gave Fields u win over Newman when the latter got too rough Red Students Study HONO KONG W r— Red China's Ministry of Education says there ari 219,000 students In colleges. 3,070.000 In secondary schools and million in elementary schools ii China.

' s But Commissio^ Executive Secre- lary T. A. McAmis pointed put that :he season doesn't start until Nov. 10, and that rain might possibly end the drouth before that time. However, the Weather Bureau ' here said there was little possibility for rain In Arkansas in the immediate future. The Commission also ordered McAmis, Commissioner Ed W. Watkins of Mcna and Attorney Ed Ash- •, bough to confer with J. F. Watts J of Huntsville, Ala., on a controversy '" over the Mercer.Bayou development in MiUer County. Watts Is owner of the bayou '• which the Commission dammed at both ends to develop as a public fishing ground.
