Tlie little halfback shoved tile ball deep into Chick ten i lory almobt alone in thc second peiiocl and then passed 14 yards lo Johnson who. ran 20 for the Bulldog touchdown. Then the Paragould speedster added thc extra point ft cm scilmmage. Alter that Paia- gould supporters didn't pailicularly t care about the score, cheered by the fact that their team had scored. ,:A small crowd sat in on the nf- fair wilh n blustering wind growing bolder as tlie game piogiesicd. Maybe the obvious differences In the iwo teams on the field was a factor but anyway the between halves exhibitions by the Paragould • and .Blythevllle bands and pep squads fcrced thc grlddeis to at least share the spotlight for • the; night. Paragould's representatives c«mc on the field first and executed llielr maneuvers led by Miss Ann Hancock, daughter of Alvls Hancock, who.used to oppose Parngould on the same field as a member of the , Blylheville team. They were followed by the Blytheville nriay and the latter, possibly piessed fcr time, ttcnl through their drills with a bnsk precision that emphasised their tontlnued Impiovement.

For several minutes in the third period It seemed that, the Trojans would store n touchdown but. a-poor pass from center spiked a grand op- p:;i'j))lty. While the onme was hard fought, neither team showed snythlng in , (lie way cf a sustained attack to | rave about, It, was a costly Hot Springs fumble 'that finally enabled the Tigers to reach pay dlvt, such as it was. On the other hand, the near-tic struggle was interpolated with dashes by Chuck Stccul of Lit'lle nock, plunges by Havry carter ; of - Little Rock, plunges by Jay Rowland of Hot Snrlngs and off-tackle slants by Elliott of Hct Springs. 31-0 MARIANWA, Oct.
