NOT. 6, IMt : Papooses Meet Rugged Whitehaven at Haley Field Tonight '-' • •••-• •~• ~~~> ~~ : : — Injuries Force Lineup Change for Locals; Visitors to Be Strong A reshuffled band of Junior High Pajwoses lake the field tonight against strong Whitehaven, Tenn., in what promises to be the Paps' sternest tc-st of the season. Haley Field kickoff time i> S p.m.* An Injury to Vail, regular tackle,' i has caused Coach Harold Stockton to effect K>me sweeping changes In his lineup. To prevent any weakening In the forward wall, Coach Stockton said he will move regular halfback and . line-backer Charles Abbott to Vall's tackle slot. Moving Into Abbott's vacated half position will be Eugene Stephens, i regular fullback. Kenny Isaacs, who has seen con- Injuries Hamper All SWC Teams , siderable action this year, will come off the bench to fill In a fullback for Stephens. Rest of Regulars In Otherwise, Coach Stockton said, "With the help of a lot of tape." Stockton laid, "we'll have them all In there tonight." That'll find Bralcher and Roun: aavall at ends; Veach and AbboU at tackles; Huffman and Hall at guards; Handle at center; and : Jones, Abers, Stephen* and Isaacs. Bobby Jones, quarterback on Stockton's split T, and Freddie Akers, halfback, will probably bear the brunt of the Pape 1 offense with Ab: bott at tackle. Jones runs passes and kicks. Akers IB primarily a breakaway man and -.-•to often on the receiving end ot Jones'tosses. From his fullback, post, Stephens ' has been used mostly «s a blocker. He may get a chance lo run tonight. WhiiehRven has lost only one ball janie, to Messlck Junior High, g-0 In the season's .opener. They hold wins over Jackson, Tenn., 13-0; Memphis Training School, 20-0, Bartlelt, 26-13 and Milllngton, 37-«. Last week the Paps lost to Jack•on, 6-0. Coached by Harvey Lewis, Tennessee Tech grldder and Whitehaven native, Whitehaven runs from the tight-and split T and a punl formation. ' In'the latter, the quarterback Is under center, but other backs line up as in punt*.formation. Whitehaven also -runs some T plays off an unbalanced line. One threat the Paps won't have to contend with Is Bruce Ward. 180- pound fullback who was (mushing junior high lines at will until he was Injured. Coach Lewis said this morning that Ward will not see any action. "I «lso have a couple of halfback that are pretty well banged up. I probably will only play them In spnts," he saidt Blytheville defeated Whtleliaven, 19-0, last year.

Si7ences Critics of TV Schedule NEW YORK (AP) — The scramble for teams for the Jan 1 football bowl spectacles was on today with New Orleans' Sugar Bosvl out in front of the pack. Georgia Tech, unbeaten, untied and unsurpassed at the moment BS a bowl attraction, agreed to play In the Sugar Bowl yesterday, thus becoming one of the earliest bowl- bound teami since the New Year's Day classics were started. Who the powerful Engineers, third-rnnfced In the Associated Press poll, will meet Is anybody's guess, The Rose Bowl at Pasadena, grand-daddy of the January spec- taclcs, will, of course, match the Pacific Coast Conference and Big Ten champions. Dallas' Cotton Howl will have the Southwest Conference winner at host tenm. Bui the three conference races are far from settled, and nobody can say for sure at this dale who'll be de- fending conference honors Jan. I. Orange Meefi The Miami Orange Bowl, fourth of the big four bowls, will hold a committee meeting this week end, and members declined to discuss any. possible teams until then. A spokesman commented, however, thnt "November Is nh Important month In football and we want to pick the best teams." A rundown of the top 10 teams shows that only one other team, eighth-ranked Tennessee, is eligible for a bowl bid. 'Hie Volunteers, who have nppeared in many bowl games In past years, are still trying to live down an early season loss, to Duke, which wos whomped, 28-7, by Georgia Tech last Saturday. Michigan State, No. i, Is a member of the Big Ten, although not eligible for conference football competition until next year. Maryland, No. 2, is barred by a Southern Conference ruling against bowl games.
