Jonesboro Has Five Wins Coach Chill Davis' Whirlwind has rolled to five victories this year and lost but one game but Its schedule has been a little tougher than the Paps'. Jonesboro has lost only to Snowden of Memphis by a one point 7-6 margin. The Whirlwind holds victories over Walnut Ridge, 47-7; South Side of Memphis 20-14; Newport 33-0; Hot Springs 32-6; and Poplar Bluff 44-0.

Couch Stabler appeared rather optimistic about his team's chances against the strong Whirlwind eleven. "I think we will take them," he i predicted.

The Whirlwind boasts a light but »peedy squad with Bobby Rogers, th« st»te'» leading Junior scorer, th« main offensive cog. Rogers is a pint-shied, scatback-type of a runner, that Is wpable o« going all th« way anytim*. ^ Mode; Limit pap< But the Paps will counter with a woll polished- bockfield that has looked good all year and a sizeable lln« to operate tn' front of it. MoBtey, the teams captain and left halfback, leads the paps' of- fefiM that is made up of Norbett Blanlcenshfp a fleet-footed halfback, Bob (Bed) Childress, a hard driving fullback and Ralph Snyder who has shown good prospect as a field general. Bnyder operates tt quarterback. The Paps will hold a slight weight edge over the Whirlwind, especially in the line. And BlyUievllle's big forwards wall could be the thing that will upset the touted Whirlwind. String Jonesboro Turner , Dryer . Douglas Moma .. Berry ... Phillips . Cook ... Childs . Riggs ...
