Tfct Vitw from Here ED HAYES Ferdinand Award : NORMALLY IT WOULD BE TOO EARLY TO DISTRIB- ute any of my annual Ferdinand awards but I don't see how anyone is go'ing to top Mrs. Wally Smith of Blytheville as • foo'tball-mother-of-the-year. Our paths crossed at the bank shortly before noon Saturday, about 14 hours after the Blytheville High Chickasaws defeated Cape Girardeau Central 27-13. She was still feverish. "I'm still wound up," she said. ' Her son Mike, a tackle, is one of the three BHS captains this - year and Friday's triumph broke a nine-game losing streak, dating back to Sept. 17 a year ago. Wingback Eddie Pharb spent the night with Mike. He said he was going to send a two-word letter to Doug Smith (Mike's older brother), co-cap of last year's Chick club who is now living in Cape Girardeau and attending college there. The two words? Ha ha. Mrs. Smith gets the mythical Ferdinand award (it makes a beautiful paperweight for oral agreements) for five reasons. She is the only mother in the United States who has four sons currently playing football, in college, high school, junior high and grade school. And who has a husband who played for the Chickasaws. * * * .-.• EUGENE LEE OF GOSNELL, 188-POUND TACKLE -(who looks bigger) is one of the best bets to win all-star recognition in Conference 2-A this year. You might ask some .of the Blytheville B team linemen what they think of him. I know Shawnee respects him. .,' Eugene and Shawnee's. Jackie Warhurst battled each other to classic heights Friday night in Joiner (Class B Shawnee socked Class A Gosnell 12-0). Shawnee's young Steve Ford scored both touchdowns, one in the first and one in the fourth quarters. In between time he was on the bench because he had tried to run over Lee. * * * "I had seen the Lee boy play against Blytheville and told Ford he couldn't do it," said Bill Welch, Shawnee coach. But Ford had to try. If he hadn't he might now be well on the road to matching Shawnee graduate Peyton Speck's ; great 1965 season when he was the leading Class B scorer in Arkansas. Anyway, Welch is pleased the Gosnell game is over. He doesn't expect to see a better lineman the rest of the year '-yes, yes, despite the fact that No. 1 Parkin is due in Joiner Friday night. Oakland Champ ASSOCIATED PRESS NEVER DID MOVE A STORY -for us on the American Legion national baseball tournament. For those who missed it here and elsewhere, the national champ this year was Oakland, Calif. The Californians rushed undefeated into the finals, lost to Tuscaloosa 6-2 and then -came back in the championship game 4-1. Oakland also won the national in 1949-50 and no wonder with guys like Curt Flood, Frank Robinson and J. W. Porter. . * * * THE ARKANSAS TRAVELERS OF THE TEXAS LEA- gue, owned by Arkansas fans, and Tulsa, swapped places in the Texas and Pacific Coast leagues this year and both won pennants. In 30 years of participation in the Texas League, Tulsa had never finished on top. * * * £an't-Miss Types — PARAGOULD BROTHERS GARY AND MANUEL WASH- Ington, who played for the Batesville semipros in the National " Baseball Congress show in Wichita, were voter to the All- American prospects team, selected by major league scouts >ho watched the star-jammed tournament. The scouts put the can't-miss types on the all-star team. """ * * . * WILSON'S INTREPID 148-POUND DEFENSIVE TACKLE "'Don Scott was injured in the first quarter Friday against .Keiser. He was gimping around on the sidelines and begged David McCullar to get back in the game. The coach wisely said no and sent him to the hospital. The boy returned in a cast. Broken leg. "I'll be back," he vowed. '' * * * FOUR-DOT DATA: Sikeston's Bulldogs not only chopped down Chaffee Friday night: they sent two Chaffee linemen to the hospital for repairs. Sikeston has a date in Blytheville, Nov 11 ....

JOINER-Steve Ford, out with an injury part of the first quarter and all the second quarter, scored both touchdowns in Shawnee High's 12-0 triumph over the Class A Gosnell Pirates here Friday night. Capitalizing on a Gosnell fumble in the first quarter the Indians of Bill Welch took up the offense on the Pirates' 21 and on the first play Ford fired into the end zone for the touchdown. Ford cracked across from the one late in the fourth quarter or the clincher, the final play o na 65-yard drive. There were no extra points. Joining Ford on the injury bench about the same time were halfback Jerry Morris and end Danny Welch. Jerry came back to play all the second half, while Danny and Steve were used sparingly. Danny still managed to hop on two fumbles. * * * Gosnell's only penetration came in the second quarter. The Bucs of J. A. Smith actually went into the end zone but the score was rubbed out on a penalty. Ford was the Shawnee boss, despite his limited action, gaining 77 yards in 11 tries. Robert Campbell collected 44 yards in 44 carries. Tackle Jackie Warhurst, one of the two seniors on the Shawnee squad, racked up 14 unassisted tackles. He and Gosnell tackle Eugene Lee had a tremendous battle. "I doubt we'll see a better lineman all year than Lee," , -tf- EUGENE LEE •. A Rough Buc said Shawnee coach Bill Welch. Junior center Dennis McElyea intercepted a Gosnell pass. "I think our sophomores did an exceptional job," Welch concluded. The Class B Indians have a game here with Parkin Friday night. Parkin is the No. 1 Class B team in the state and could be Shawnee's biggest hurdle for a 3-B title. Gosnell is at home to Piggott in 2-A. down the ninth and tenth spots, respectively. They battled to a 7-7; tie Friday night. Meanwhile, Crossett strengthened its grip on first place in the Class AA poll with 11 first place votes and 37 points- Fort Smith St. Anne's clung to the top spot in Class A and Parkin continued to head the list in Class B. Norphlet, a 92-0 winner over Sparkman Friday, zoomed from fourth pla.ce to second in the Class B rankings. * * * Results of the poll, with first place votes in parentheses and total points at right: ' 1.
