I.ules Slay Be Out And, too, the Chicks niay have to get along at least a part of the night without their fleet-footed halfback, : Charles (Ruff) Lutes. Lutes has been nursing a toe in- Jury all week and Coach Russell Mosley said last night that he may see action. The toe, injured hi the Jackson game last week, bothers Lutes on his pivots and slows him down a bit.
