Since Jonesboro, which won't play Blythe\llle, was auirdcd the dulslonnl rhnmplonshlp by the AAA executive commlltee'Siturdiy, wondering just whnt the future might hold for tho Chicks. Best guess: .more games with Memphis and west Tennessee teams. Since the playoff system was Junked by the governing body (a convention of the entire membership) of the AAA Mr Nicholson pointed out that no group has authority to come up with any other 55 stem No Meeting Until Fall | And the governing body doesnt meet again untl next fnll t He said he <ins excused fiom that part of the meeting on the hasls that- BljtheUlte was one of (he participants In the case "tie. for «hich Fain lew tied, Mr. SM A AAA Could Hove Given Division Real Champion or None at All ,Tu e £' ss ?• e Reglon 1IAA f ootba)l championship is over. Jhe Executive Committee of the-Arkansas Athletic Association Saturday ruled that Jonesboro should represent tho region in tl.o .state playoffs. And, in our opinion, in doing so the committee defeated the one big purpose of the great or- gamzation it governs. 1 Before we go «ny further let it be said right here that this de- sartment went on record some three or four weeks ago that It made not one tinker's dam to us what team was declared the champion. That a trip to the playoffs was not worth all the fuss ami furore that It was going to take to get It for Blytheville and that'we did not think a championship should be OIVKN to anybody We are still of that attitude but we congratulate Jonesboro and wish it Oodspeed In the coming playoffs But, as we said two paragraphs •igo, In our opinion the committee n choosing between Blythevllle nnd Junesboro. ha.s defeated the >lg purpose of the great brganlza- in which it governs. That "one blir purpose" referred to I* set out in he very beginning of the Code of fii!! C f, adopt(:d b * * he Arkansas Athletic Association. It reads: "To emphasize the proper Ideals of portsmanshlp, ethical conduct and "AIR play." WM Decision FalrT We emphasized the word fair be- ause we knew and we believe that he members of the committee :new that there was' no-fair way n comparing the,teams of Jones- »ro snd Blythevllle. Jonesboro reused to play Blytheville". They played only one common opponent, North Little Rck, with the chicks atching the Wildcats on opening night, and the Hurricane 'playing hem In mid-season and there Is o comparison between the quality ' the opponents on the two cams' schedules. Rebuttal argument to this could : Okay, so there's'no fair com- arison. A champion had. to be Icked. What were they to do?" rhere were several ways out Wavs hat would have been a lot fairer o both sides. No. 1—The committee could hove nd should have suggested publicly uvt the two schools considered for ie Region n chsmplonshlp, Bly- hevllle «nd Jonesboro, settle the ssne between themselves with a trong suggestion that they get to- cther on their schedule diffcr- nccs. If that failed, which It more nan likely would have, then- No 2 — The committee should a\e refused to nnme a champion n Region II on grounds of lack f cooperation. And No. 3 _ After refusing to name either Blythevllle or Jonesboro the champion, the committee could have ordered the Doiible-A Play- ofs played'with only three teams with one team drawing, a first round bye or invited an ouUlde team to fill in the gap. But, for some reason or oth-r the committee decided to go ahead and choose between the two teams nnd on what basis Its decision was made at this writing had not been made : public. There was talk o comparative scores, there was other talk of comparative records, there was talk of a coin flip. If any or all of this talk Is true we fair to see where the committee can find such basis fair.. But, the decision has been mad and there will be no further crying from this corner: The decision will be respected anrt again we say congratulations and good luck Jonesbro.

Russ and Bill sent their team Into Friday night's game with Hot springs of Ihe Big Seven knowing that the next day'the Region II question would be decided and the outcome of that game might have considerable bearing oh which way the wind blew.' . But even knowing this Russ and Bill refused to get "score happy. They refused .to run up an impressive: score on the obviously-weak -Trojans In order to better their team's chances With a two touchdown lead going Into the third quarter they started substituting at will and before the game was over they had used B team and junior high plajers they had dressed out in order to give them a feel of varsity foot- O8JI. Anybody that saw the game knows that had they wanted to the Chicks could have very nearly named the score. Maybe Leo Durocher had something when he cracked "Good guys don't Jcln pennants" Nashville and •--«, ..... Nicholson snld the committee chose Nashville on the basis of comparative scores.
