MytbivflU (Ark.) Courtar Nm-^ TuwUy, 8^>t€«b«r», MM- r*ft How to Get there (but How to Win?) BLYTHEVILLE HIGH'S FOOTBALL GAME FRIDAY night; "AT" Westwood is to be played on-the gridiron at West wood.'. ' . Elementary, eh? • No, not so, not when you consider the amount of football layouts they have spread but around the Memphis area . . . ; and there has been doubt in some mind* here just where the scuffle was to be enacted. For strangers to the area, here's the best way to get to . Westwood. Stay on Crump after you come purring off the bridge and turn right at U.S. 61. Then settle back for a ; long cruise but don't go all the way across the line Into . Mississippi. Keep a sharp eye out for Ford Road. That's the • key. • • ' Turn right on Ford, one block to Parkrose, turn left ,- and travel two blocks and (God willing) you'll see the stadium. : • • *•*•*• • The Westwood Westerners lost last week to Whitthaven but Jack Goodman, who saw the game in the role of scout, said Blytheville players and fans shouldn't bt milled by th« ••214 score. : "Whitehaven is as big as North Li'l Rock," said the Bly- thevilli Junior High coach and he's a coach who does not •" have a hankering for hyperbole. Westwood has also clobbered CollierviUe 40-0. * * * .. . . •.-' • After looking at the 'West Memphis game film (Elythe-. • ville won 1W2 to hoist a:2-2 season record), Bob Williams observed: "Our beys did t pretty good job on defense In the second half. ••"And the film showed us a big weakness we couldn't see durinrth* game." I do hot intend to go into the weakness In detail but it enabled the Blue Devils to enjoy success with the end iweep. "Other than that," the coach said, "our boys passed some real, good licks." The View from Here ED HAYES * * * Bob said Robert Elliott did a thumping good job at line- backing. And about that big weakness? Is it zippered up? "We hope so." * * * JACK SNIPES, ONE OF THE KEY WILSON HIGH backs, reportedly was gettnig ready to move to Jonesboro With his family after last week's game. Snipes would be able to play for the Hurricane immedi. ately. That is, he'd be scholastically eligible. It'd be up to him to make the club. It would be the second score for Jonesboro in Wilson this year, having earlier signed Bulldog head coach Bill Reed as an assistant. * * * EVERETT CROSSLOW RECENTLY ENCOUNTERED Bill Godwin and those two names should stir memories of the folks who fondly remember BHS football in the late 1930s and 1940. Neither is directly associated with sports now, Shoeless Bill having left Jordan (Ga.) High about five years ago. And Crosslow, with two partners has opened a discount'store at Fort Walton Beach, Fla. Godwin, who got his Shoeless nickname because he preferred to hit a baseball barefooted, is an insurance agent. He dropped J. P. Friend a note a few days ago to tell him of his meeting with Crosslow. J.P. was Courier News sports editor at the time when the future Georgia All-America was at BHS. * * * Godwin had a dream job as center. He snapped the ball to Sonny Lloyd and Monk Mosley. People still argue that this was the best one-two punch BHS ever had. Yet ... yet ... this team . . . this great (earn ALSO WAS DEFEATED at North Lil Rock and it's re-mentioned here for today's Chickasaws who might've lost a sliver of • their hearts down in that city a couple weeks aj»o. Looney on the Trade Block DETROIT <AP> - Rebellious running back Jot Dai Looney wu pieced on Uu trading block by the Detroit Lions Monday. But there were no immediate Ukers. ."We're exploring, talking to quite a few clubs/' a spokesman for the National Football League team said Monday. "Right now, nothing has changed. He's still suspended and no longer practicing with the team." Looney was suspended indefinitely by the Lions Sunday when he refused to carry a play to quarterback Milt Plum. The Lions defeated Atlanta 28-10. Gilmw m«t briefly with Looney Monday but refuted to comment on the talk. • Looney Mid he refused to reenter Sunday's game because lie- lad suffered a back injury, HC, displayed a large, red welt to •; newsmen Monday, but later admitted Dr. Richard A. Thomp? son, Lions team physician, had- pronounced him fit. '.' The 24-year-old halfback hai had a long career of difficulties in football. He played at four universities and was booted off the Oklahoma varsity by then Coach Bud Wilkinson for slugging an assistant coach. B-DOGS BEATEN 39-13 BHS B Rips 'Em Blytheville High's B football team drew even with the varsity Chickasaws at Haley Field last night. Both clubs now show a 2-2, season record. The B boys won their second straight last night when they uncovered their best offensive muscle of the year, decisioning Paragould B- Doga 39-13. * 1 * The rout was well-reflected In the statistics as Blytheville stacked up 308 yards rushing, while holding the visitors to 144. And the heavy rolls of fog that moved across the gridiron had nothing to do with it. Before the fog arrived, near halftime, the B-CMck- asaws were sprinting to a 19-6 advantage. Blytheville gained 4 2 yards through the air and accumulated 17 first downs. Paragould picked up 83 yards and a dozen first dwns. Biytheville led all the •way. * * * Individual statistics were not kept but Chris Tompkins, Steve Owens and Phil Long were the major work horses for the winners. They each scored at least one touchdown. Tompkins tore off three. He started the scoring early in the first quarter (8:23) on a seven-yard dart off tackle, following a pass interception by David Russell to the Paragould 19. Tompkins was unable to run the extra point. Russ Johnson passed to end Mike Sisemore for the second touchdwon in the se"9- ond quarter, 20 yards, and passed a bullet to him for the extra ponit, 13-0. This scene was set by Terry Richardson who ran from the P-38 for atouchdown but had it called back to the P-20 on a clipping call that brought a howl of protest from the customers. * * * After Paragould scored on a drive Johnson beat the halftime clock wihtth a four yard pass to Owens at :02. On the second-half kickoff Blytheville drove for a TD from its own 28 to 16 plays, Long, hustling the final four yards. It was 25-6 here at 3:46 in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter a short punt put the B-Chicks in business at the P-34 and on the ninth play, with Jodie Gude directing traffic onw, Tompkins tore off tackle at 4:55 for another six pointer and also ran for the PAT. Paragould made it 32-13 with neat drive but before it was over (17 seconds left), Tompkins raced 63 yards for the final TD (Sisemore producing THE block) and aGude pushed across with the point. The entire Blytheville line played well, all taking turns to deliver some crunching tackles. Blytheville didn't have to punt once. That's the kind of game it was. -ED HAYES High School niniiiiiiiiniiiiiiiNiiiitniinniimininiiiiiiiiininiinnnii' 1 THURSDAY Jackson (Term.)

So said Herb Welch, professional wrestling promoter and performer. Herb used to come into Blytheville and spend a peaceful Tuesday evening, overseeing the over-all picture at Legion Arena, counting money, settling minor disputes anrt «'gning auto-' graphs. Until he started wrestling here. * * * Herb was reluctant to fight here since he's also the promoter but he was constantly being besought by fans to put on tights. The customers could see him working frequently on television and they couldn't understand why they should get gypped out of getting to see him in person. So Herb bowed to the pressure. Now he's a regular attraction. But to get back to tonight's complicated picture. Herb and former partner . Al Costello were involved in a mixup at the Arena last week with the Blue Infernos and were ordered by the commission into a return match. . However, there was a snag. Costello broke up the partnership with Herb when he 'signed with Sol Wein- groff, Herb at the same tune refusing to sign. So, since Al has decided to go his own way (or the mysterious way of Sol and the Von Brauners), Herb had to choose a new partner for tonight. * * * Many Blytheville fans feel . he made the best choice possible. His partner? Powerhouse Jackie Fargo. Thus, it's Jackie and Herb vs. the Blue Infernos in— get this—a team match, not a TAG team match. All four wrestlers are to be allowed in the ring at the same time. Pity the poor referee. * * * There are two Negroes in preliminary match, Prine Pullins and Mark Scott, a pair of able-bodied souls. Their weights are listed at 230 each. Ticket for general admission (75 cents for adults, 25 cents for children) and ringside reserved (35 cents : extra) is to start at 6:30.
