Their Hue is raid to be aiiall, generally inexperienced mid not, capable or engineering much ground po?er, (hough in Woody Durliam Ihey have a ball carrier who caused the Chicks some lr:uule last year with his offtacklc Jaunts. So,' the'Chicks have been warned to keep their eyes peeled for 'itlmosl anything and any kind of foolball attack. It Isn't violating any confidence to assume that Ihe Chicks' strategy will lie. in the assault-nl the fcr- wnrd wall. -They likely will stnrl hammering as soon as possible and continue every chance (hey have. With (i sizeable •weight advantage it should pay oft Ihe longer tlie game progresses. While Ihe tribe has relied mostly on their ground plays far (he bulk of gains, they may nllempt Is match piss \\ilh pass No accurate statistics on the season,arc handy at the moment but tlie Chicle have scored innnj louclidonns with Ihe overhead game In fact, every touch- down'that lias been scored against conference leoms has c;tne on nerlnl bombs. They have been mixed well W'lh the off tackle slants, end imib and splnncis lo draw the secondary in and 'then flip to the weakness.

With the downing of the idea that perhaps, nfter all, the Chicks weren't supermen from Mars, we began a, 111- llc investigating. In no lime at all, we found out (hat Sonny Lloyd, like you and 1, has to blow his nose when he has a cold! It was revolntionaryl One. of his mates, an ordinary little fellow with 'uncombed hair and Just two eyes, contributed the fact that Sonny Uoyd has been known to wear socks with holes in them! So he was the little sophomore that ran 81 yards for n touchdown against Jonesboro last year—just enough to give the passers'it fit by rushing. And their greatest defense against the forward passing is in preventing the chunker trom getting set. Almost anyone can complete passes if they have all day. The real skill lies in the ability lo shoot- (hem true while facing a rushing front wall. Joncsboro is certain to be dangerous. They arc certain to scrap and scrap hard. It is traditional between Joncsboro and Blytheville learns. The game is cerloin to provide thrills and thrills galore, and I am certain lo be on hand, unless 1 break a leg and they have to shod me, like they do all horses. As long as Dan's been playing for the Chicks .(this is his fourth ami —sigh—final year) we'd somewhere ncqulred the notion that he was ( a robot of some type. But as soon Dlldy was through with him he sped to the lee of the stands to get warm along willi a pair of measly 140-pound substitutes. Sure, Wttrrington'.s tall and lias a lot of beef but so have Howard Bnringer and Johnny O.sment although Danny has a much better sun-tan than either of them and they say that's what, counts in the game. Bill Godwin plays center for Die Chicks but In spite of his UOO pounds or so, he likes the taste of lipstick as well as the best ladles' man on the Jonesboro team.
