*ACE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) CotTKTHl FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6,' 19M Alibi Each week at thii lime I usually come forth with some half-witted «cu« for my miserable efforts at picking foolball winners for the preceding week hlit alter last Friday's pathetic offering I won't even try to """•liM. My batting average slipped so low that I am no longer keeping ; »core, But I stubbornly refuse lo give up this business.; Who knows, I may I pick a »inner one of those days if the season lasts long enough. : Jatkson, Tenn, at Blytheville—At the start of (he season I privately "picked four teams thai would be stumbling blocks for the' Chicks. The '. Golden Bear's, for one. Since thai time, however, the Chicks have looked like a million dollars in rolling up four slraight wins while the Bears have been small change In losing their first three. Lloyd (Toar) Wise, '. who saw the Bears, play Humes of Memphis last week, told me though ' that Jackson 1 Is a learn which mighl find Itself during any game and if '•< and when it does Coach Tury Oman's crew will slart 16 roll. Bui Ihis ';•-. more than likely won't be Ihe game. The Chicks should get No. 5 In : easy fashion, by 20 points anyway. OsrenU al Whitehaven—This is "Ihe" game for Dukie Speck's Semi~. Holes, so they tell me. If the Osccola. Tribe, can get by this one (hey will ;i be on Ihelr way lo on unbeaten season. The only report I have received '"' on Ihe Tennesseeans Is Hint they are rougher.Ihnn a scrub maid's knees, '!, but so is Osceola. And it's my guess the Semlnoles will join Ihe Chicks in •, celebrallng lhal No. 5 win by a touchdown. ; Newport at Joriesboro-Jonesboro showed signs of coining to lift last " week. Came within one poinl of showing up Helena and that close one may give Hie Golden Gang a little inspiration..This most, generally Is a ' good game regardless ot who's gol what. Playing at home should give '[the Hurricane what Htlle edge there will be. Jonesboro by six. Pissoll al 1'iiragoultl—Reports received here say that Leon Undcr- ' wood's Mohawks have another Rood club this year Ihougli nol quite as ' good as last year's. Paragoiild, on the oilier hand, is down from last year • and looks like a lale coming learn. But the Bulldogs are still a short " dislance away. Piggolt by seven points. ', Arkansas al Texas Cliristlnn— Tills game may shed some light on Ihe • question 'What happened to the Oklahoma Aggies?" Coach Ears Whil• worlh's crew ilpsel both Arkansas and TCU on consecutive weekends and ,i by almosl idenlical scores. But It looked like Arkansas arrived last week • against North Texas State and \vill go on to do some of those things Otis Douglas had hoped for. The Razorbacks by two touchdowns. t \ Others: Southern Methodist over Missouri; Oklahoma qver Texas A. & M.; Alabama over Vanderbilt; Tennessee over Duke; North Carolina over Georgia; Rice over 1SU; Mississippi Stale over Baylor; Clem- j'Jfion over NC State, Iowa over Indiana; Minnesota over Nebraska; Navy ;" over Northwestern; -Notre Dnme over Purdue; Hliapis over Wisconsin; • Boston College over Ole Miss; Columbia over Harvard; Tulsa over George• (own; Army over Penn Stale; California over Perm; and Washington . over UCIjA ' Set to Meet Jackson Sports in Spurts— Oklahoma footbriU fails are pretty high on Blytheville's J.

Now Oklahoma sport* writers are booming-lourtly the drums for the undermanned Cowpokes and building them up as ".steeiiers" . , . Weather permitting, the Chicks will be sporting new uniforms tonight. The new garbs are solid white with maroon stripes and numerals. They were purchased last/ spring but only the jerseys have been worn so far, .•. Lloyd KoonU of the 1941 Chicks IK back in the harness at 'Arkansas Tech and Is playing a lot of tackle, Koontz 1 missed last year because of an injury to his hand. . . . Thing* you learn from / reading press release handouts: Kit Carson, an «nd on the Nayy's football team this fall. Is a distant cousin ot the famous Indian ucdut. And, the average Big Ten Institution conducts intercollegiate competition In II sports. And, Washington Senator players were hit 59 time* by pitched balls in 1921, a major league record. World Series Defensive Play Has Been Overlooked by Many By TEH MKIR '.YORK. .Oct. 6. CAP)—Many to have overlooked the great'defensive play of the Yankees agfthUrt ttw''Ph11« in this world series. Take yesterday's gams in Phnly for Instance: the headlines went to Jo* DiMaggli>',s game-winning "h'c^- mer in the 10th inning. Buried Jh moat storiw were Joe's two fielding gem* that most certainly forced the' jtm« overtime. The first cnme Jn the sixth on Del Ennis' hard smash to right center. It Jooked like a certain hit until DiMftggio pulled it down over his •houldcr near bha 400-foot mark Tchile running at full speed with his back partly turned to the infield. Iti the ninth DiMag came up with another nifty. With one out Granny Hamner lined the ball Into right center. DIMag didn't catch it this time. Instead he .scooped the ball up in his gloved hand while sprinting to his left and heaved io second base. Hamner got a dou- bfc, but for Joe's smart play it would have been at least a triple and maybe the break the Phils .have been looking for. DiMaggio wasn't the only Yankee star in the field, Little Rhil Rizzuto at shortstop turned In a feat in the "eighth inning that stifled a Phils threat. With - one out and the speedy Richie Ajhburn on first, Dick Sis- ler'attempted to sacrifice. Pitcher AJlie Reynolds picked up the bunt •nd threw towards second base. For a fleeting second It appeared the throw was going into centerfield, but then little Phil reached out and made a fine catch of the wide throw. He scmed to be fall- Bradley Gridder Is Shooting for Place Kick Mark PEORTA, III. Oct. 8. (iPI— Bradley University's Gcrnld (Buck) Stamp wll| be booting for « modem collegiate field goal record when th« Braves Invade^BowlIng Green Unl versity (Ohio) tomorrow. Stamp, s«nlor quarterback from Clinton, la., who never Iricd a Held goal before last season, has kicked five already In Bradley's two victories this season. He needs only one. more to tie the national college single season record of six set by Ken Cook of Snn Jose state in 1939 and matched by Colorado A & M.'s Hainlen In 1948. Stamp launched the 1950 season by kicking 14 and 25-yard field goals in Bradley's 33-0 win over Ripon (Wis.) and Inst. week bootfd 35. 32 and 37-yard fielders as the Braves trounced Adams (Colo.) 57-0. The 5-foot, 10-inch, 150 pounder has picked eight field goals without ft miss in four consecutive games including' Bradley's last two 1948 start.?. He leads Bradley's scoring this season with 34 points, also in eluding nine conversions In U at .tempts. Tribe Will Seek Its Filth Victory Mosleymen Again Rated as Favorites By 2 to 3 Tallies Rl.vtheville High School's Cliickasaws go after their! fifth consecutive victory tonight when they clash with the invading Golden Bears from Jackson, Tenn., High School. The kickoff is set for 8 o'clock. And (or the fifth time Into year the Chicks will be In the favorites' seat. Their victories over Bartlett, Tenn., Paragould, Poplar Bluff, Mo., and Benton, III., coupled with Jackson's losses to Bartletl, Trenton, Tenn., and Humes High o( Memphis, has established Coach Russell Mosley's tribe as a two to three touchdown favorite. But the Chicks' evidently rion'l believe in figures. Their spirit continued hljh throughout drills this week in spite of they were told they faced a weaker team. The Chicks climaxed their week's drills with a long but light workout of the "dress rehearsal" session polishing up their offensive attack, particularly their passing. Coach Mosley had pronounced his Chicks in fine physical form lor tonight's game. Tackle Qulncy Hodge has been nursing a bad cold most of the week but Is expected to ready to start at his regular wition tonight.

The Texans, thanks to Mexican fast-bailer Procoplo Herrera, took the final game of the. series from the Southern Association Nashville Vols last night, 8-5. In a wild game which saw nine ^hurler.i parade to the mound to try to hold the batters in check. Nashville used five of them. Last night's victory was Ihe third slralghl for the Texans, who trailed Nashville 1-3 after the fourth game last Sunday. It was Ihen that they were offered the two grand bonus if they could knock off the Vols, who won the 1949 series from Tulsa In the 10th Inning 1 of the seventh gome. Herrera. last night's hero, went to the mound In relief In the sixth inning with San. Antonio leading six to four, the bases loaded and none out.

College tackle, explained to Head Coach Fred fFish) Ellis he hart ahsenled himself from football practice to substitute for his ill wife BS A baby-sitter for (heir two small daughters, the problem was solved in .speedy fashion. Ellis told Schneider to bring his children to the practice field, where they would Two Tackles Are Picked as 'Men to Watch' NE WYORK. Oct. 8. {/Pj—Two husky tackles, who possess unusual speed to go with their power, hnve been named us the college football linemen to Wfttch this year. The two are Bob Gain of Kentucky, and Bob Tonelf of Notre Dame. They finished In a tie for first plrtce in the Associated Press pre-seiuwn poll to select the "prob- Rble outstanding lineman of the year." • Rich received 18 votes out of 1C« forwarded by i ports writers and sportscasters from coast to coast. Right behind them came Dan Pold- K, Army's crack end, who. was named 17 times. ' All three, incidentally, caught the attention of scouts and coaches last, season. Gain was picked for the AP's second all-America team. Both Tcneff and Foldberg were named for honorable mention. The. 21-year-old Gain was chosen the outstanding lineman In the southeastern conference last season. He Is a senior, weighs 230, stands 6-3, and h»i)« from Welrton, W. Va. Toneff, a Junior, stands 6-1, weighs 236, and comes from Kar- berton. O. At high school he wns an all-stat* trackman. With Notre Dame weak in line material this year, Toneff will be called on fnr Iron-man duty. Irv Holdasti, North Carolina's tine line-backing center, was another "mule" singled out' for a good year. And Irv really made his admirers look good against Notre Dame last •Saturday. At least Z5.000 are expected to watch the first Southwest Confer- enc« battle of the season and, with favorab!* weather, Amoc Melton, TCU business manager of athletics, thinks the 33,000 stadium capacity may be approached. II will be the largest crowd ever to watch Texas Chris tain and Arkansas play and Melton declares (hat's no doubt but that th« big turn-out will be largely because ot what happened In the game between these two bitter rivals at Payettevill* last fall. Arkansas beat TCU M-T, after which Coach Dutch Meyer of Texa> Christian filed a protect with the Southwest Conference charging the Razorbacks had used hands and arms too promiscuously and left htm a long injury lust. The conference faculty committee passed a censure ot Arkansas for its extra-curricular rough play. There had been other such incident.'! In previous years. It was generally understood that the censure was not only for 1949 but covered the other occurrences, too. TCU Favored Anyway, it has been a crowd- getter for this year's game. Melton snrt other' officials don't think, however, that (lie fans will see any waving arms and ifsis. "I look for this to be the most gentlemanly game on record," snid Melton. Texas Christian Ls moving U> make it that way. Coach Meyer has Informed his squad that the leasl untoward act will mean the player or players take a permanent place on the bench. Coach Otis Douglas of Arkansas feels the same about it." Just another ball game to us," he said at FayettevilSe." As for the trouble last year, we would like to forget ike to do the same." cam* coach at Arkansas thi» succeeding John Barnhill. Meyer U quite pesslmktie regard- ng the outcome of the game. H« was told that th« odds-makeri were lastalling Texas' Christian 11 a three-point favorite »nd roared: 'Why, they're crary men. We have^ n't a chance io win this "one, We'r« not only crippled but we're going against a line that out-weigh* u» more than 30 pounds to the man." But th« railblrds have observed Meyer working harder with hli squad this week lhan any other wee kthey could remember. They also know this U n vight-»bmit. face on the part of the little coach of the Horned Frogs. - He's never before been known to say positively that his team would lose, Most ofl- en he has said it would win. There ought to be fun at Horned Frog stadium tomorrow night. Paul Richards May be Hew Chisox Pilot SEATTLE, Oct. 5.
