Las'., and cat-like on his feet Wiles inav year the Golden Gang went mule- ' ' foaled until they faced the Dikly Dynamiters but were swept before a 45-1 rout, snapping n ten-game winning streak for the most severe defeat in the history of football relations between the two institu- llons, according to available records. While some ardent home .-supporters contend Jonesboro stands a chance to break tlic streak this year, indications point to a continuation of Blytheville mastery. Despite a none too impressive record against conference teams, the Cliickasaws have a heavier, more experienced and more powerful ball club and should win by a comfortable score, though not without a struggle. Coach Clarence Oeis' current -team, perhaps lacking in size and seasoning, make up for it with dnsli and fire. Stripped of most of last year's powerhouse, the 1B39 outfit ?oes in fo.- a varied aerial attack which has nctled most of their gains and has proven a definite threat. ' In Die matter of wins and losses neither.boasts an extended winning streak.

Both are tall and well-seasoned. Leon Mabry will start at center. In the backficld will be Bud Daugherty at quarterback, passer nnd riinner and fast-talking fieU general. Daugherty has come a long in heaving- this year, mainly through necessity. Woody Durham will get the call 'at one half back with Charles Johnson taking ovei Ihe ether.

NEW YORK, Nov. 10 (UP) — This is the first and last or a series of seven aricles on the various Bowl football games to be played on January I. It is being written at the popular request of no one, particularly (be sponsors of the Today's Sport Parade By HENRY McLEMOHK 1 o r m c r Blytheville Boy Leads Newport To Decisive Victory Little "Hinkcy" nation, who used f- BO to school lii UlylliwIDo In Ills knee pant days, sparked an nlorl Newport second team lo n 42 tr> li win over Blythcvllle's Papooses nt Newport .last night. /Ul)ioui;)i he failed to register n s many point* as Shoffner, Newpcrl Iclt end who accounted for 14, the former Bly- Ihcvllle boy wax n big factor In the Newport attack und scored one touchdown and two extra iv.lnls on line plays besides being on the chunking curl of 'thrre louchdoivn passes.

Ignoring for the moment this churlish refusal to cooperate will] outside' meddlers, let me brush bj- (lie flowers at Pasadena, st lc (he executive offices of tuc Rose Bowl and tell the operators of that extravaganza what they should do. My first suggestion would be that the invitation be extended to Tennessee. My second suggestion would be thai the j«. vitaticm be extended to Tennessee right now, and not withheld until sometime in December. These late invitations work t> hardship on a team. The players believe they arc not going (o bo asked, so (hey dig contentedly inlo their schoolbooks and begin lo dream dreams of a happy vacation in slush and snow and stect. Then, all of a sudden, they arc yanked away right in the middle of an exciting chapter in calculus, stowed on-an uncomfortable private train, and taken to California for a disheartening round of banquets, Orange groves and movie studios.
