Pine BlyfT downed the: 12-0, but the fact that the Dima- way Dead are strongest in scvera seasons makes the small score loom brighter. Little Rock nosed them out by the slim margin of a single p:int. 7-G. The Chicks outplayed the defending champions air the way, omgninlng them almost 4-1, and with any reasonable division of the breaks would easily have been the victor. In the North Little Rock game they made enough cosily fumbles on running plays and on the receiving end of forward passes to win three stich games. One cf the aerial bombs was dropped in (lie end zone-which would have given them at least a tie. Three other times the receivers let the oval slip from tlieir grasp when they were behind the defenders and out man for liltle or nothing.
