Blythevffle (Ark.) Courier News - Saturday, November M, 19«8- Pag* fev« Four Grid Chickasaws Nail All-State Places THREE BLYTHEVILLE HIGH SENIORS AND ONE Junior have been placed on the Class AAA Eastern Division all-star football team. The league coaches did the voting last Saturday morning in Li'l Rock. Tackle Mike Smith and tailback Pat Long made the team on offense . . , while quarterback Mike Guillot and end Lewis Walters nailed polsitions on defense. Long is the lone llth grader. * * * All four are products of the city's grade school production. Smith and Guillot learned the game on the now. defunct Immaculate Conception Rams, so did not have the benefit of a full junior high grid education. When Guillot was a ninth grader, his arm was in a sling. The Chickasaws would've been in a sling had not he been able to throw and go this year. Guillot and Smith shared the Chickasaw captaincy with guard David Miles who was injured much of the season. Interestingly, Guillot's brother Bryant, and Smith's older brother Doug, also served as Blytheville captains. * * * It would be difficult to select Mike Smith's best game The Vitw from Hen ED HAYES Long Guillot Smith Walters this year. He was a consistent hitter on defense and offense, playing one strong game after another. He would probably pick the stirring 18-14 upset over Me- Clellan of Li'l Rock. Pat Long, in the 150-pound class, got a tremendous dose of experience this year.. Offhand I can't recall any Chickasaw running back who ever made a Class AAA all-state team two years in a row. Pat could become No. 1. Walters did a bit of everything. He blocked, passed, caught passes, defended, was a kickoff man, kicked extra points and field goals . . . and centered the ball on punt plays. * * * Guillot was a level-headed quarterback, strong, could scramble, pass and was an above-average punier. Although he was the leader on offense, he was even more valuable as a defensive safety. There's no telling how many touchdowns he saved when it was between just him and the opponent's break away ace out the the open. Not blessed with speed, he still caught Sikeston's fastest runner from behind. Don't ask me how he did it. Bryant Guillot was due in from University of Arkansas for the homecoming game against McClellan (Mike's best game on offense) but hadn't arrived at the kickoff. Soon as the thriller ended, Mike broke for the sidelines and his first words were: "Did Bryant get here?" * * ' * Congratulations to these boys and their coach Bob Williams and his assistants Alan Stolt, Bill McFarland, Jim Dixon and Dwight Williams. And to the boys below also. : SIKESTON QUARTERBACK WAYNE LIMBAUGH AND end Mike Garner who figured big-handedly in the Bulldogs' big win over Blytheville this year, have been named to the Bootheel Northern .Conference all r star first team. Fullback Danny Lopp made the second team. All-stars from Cape Girardeau Central, the. team the Chicks whipped, are guard George Arthur and Mike Murdoch. FIVE FOOTBALL PLAYERS FROM CARUTHERS- ville were named to the All-Bootheel South team. There were 22 players picked. The select Tigers: tackle Dave Keith; center Carroll Pujol; end Harlfin Grain; halfback Bobby (TD) Lawrence; and fullback Bitz Dicon. Six from Hayti got the call: guard Al Graham; end Kim Kelsey; fullback Joe Hill; center Ricky Rect; tackle Mike King; and quarterback Dave Dobbins. On the defensive for Hayti: Glen Haynes, Mike King, John Hardin and Joe Hill. Caruthersville's Eddie Adams; Dave Baker; Bobby Banksdale; Ray House; and Bobby Lawrence. Congrats. * * * FOUR-DOT DATA: Class AAA officials assigned Jonesboro's Joe Brooks to officiate the upcoming basketball game here between the Chickasaws and the Jonesboro Hurricane. Joe objected, probably because he feared inference of favoritism. He shouldn't have objected. He's one of the best in the state even when his hometown team is involved .... You know who didn't need an undefeated B football team this year, as far as Blytheville is concerned? Yep, North Li'l Rock. When is it going to end?

Singing Nuns Deliver: Divine Direction for Spartans By MURRAY OLDERMAN EAST LANSING, Mich.-(NEA)-The 11 good sisters of St. Thomas Aquinas, which happens to he Duffy Daughertys parish, had an idea. So Sister Jean called the local radio station the night before the Notre Dame-Michigan State game, identified herself, and asked the announcer to play the Spartan fight song over the air. "Gwan," said the announcer, "you're putting me on. You're just a coed pulling a trick." . "No," she said, "I'm a nun." So the announcer played the music to the fight song which starts: "On the hanks fit the Red Cedar Is a school that's known to all." The 11 nuns had a tape recorder and captured the music. And Sister Jean said to the announcer, "Well, God bless you." The announcer said, "Hey, you really are a nun." Then using the music for background, the 11 nuns in chorus sang the song and taped it: . . "Go right thru for M.S.U, Watch tha points keep growing, Spartan teams are bound to win, They're fighting with a vim. ... RAH RAH RAH ..." The sister called Duffy, who is, of course, the coach : of Michigan State, and told him she had the tape and wouldn't he please play it to the boys when they met the next morning in their final huddle before the Big Game. So Duffy took the tape and at 10:30 in the morning he told the muscular Spartans, "It's only misguided Catholics who think Notre Dame has divine direction. The sisters of St. Thomas Aquinas are behind you, boys." They heard the siging nuns of St. Thomas Aquinas, In chirpy soprano, exhorting them, "... Spartan teams are never beaten, all through the games they fight . . ." Halfway through the chorus the Spartans caught the fever of the music and sang right along with the tape. Then they went out to do battle with Notre Dame on the same emotional level. * * * When It was over, with the taint of the last minute and a half dulling an otherwise great game because coach Ara Parshegian was afraid of fail-safe, the Spartans felt they still were the better team, despite the 10-10 score. "I knew they were good," said halfback Clint Jones, one of the Spartans co-captains, "and I was willing to call them great—until they did what they did at the end. I think we're the .champions." "We were the dominating ball club most of the game," said Daugherty. "Now they should rate us No. 1—Michigan State, 1, and Notre Dame, 1A." Parseghian's explanation for electing to hit the line six times in a row with 1:16 left on the clock is weak. "We had a problem," laid the emotional Irish coach." We had bad field position, and (Dick) Kenney's a helluva place-kicker. With any kind of error, you could lose. When you've fought that hard, you don't want to give up anything cheap, give them the ball game." Since when is having the ball on your own 30 "bad field position?" And Notre Dame has been essentially a passing team. * * * Ara really tipped off his feelings when he said, "A let of people say a tie is meaningless. I don't share that. I'm proud of 'em, the way they came back." "At least," shrugged Jim Lynch, the captain and Ail- American linebacker of the Irish, "we didn't lose." That's not what the people are going to remember ..though. Of course, Notre Dame didn't get a chance to hear the singing nuns chant to the Spartans: "Its specially is winning, And those Spartans play good ball..."

Chamberlain holds the NBA record of 19 . consecutive field goals, so 16-for-17 isn't too spectacular. But he also made nine of 11 free throws, and for Wilt that's almost a miracle. The 7-foot-2 star also grabbed 19 rebounds, assisted on four baskets and blocked several shots from his one-man zone. "With Greer out, Wilt took charge," Hannum said.
