PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE, '(AUK,)' COURIER NEWS Warringtdn, Lloyd On Injured List; Light Workout Held Injuries may keep Dan Wan-iiigton, Chick captain, mid Sonny Lloyd, offensive spearhead, out of I lie Chiekasuws' lineup against RiisseHvillc, at least (lie .starting }iue-ii|}, it .was revealed today. Dan Is suffering from nn Injured* tee, the injury having been nggni vated when D.IU'L, looi'fcot vincli'i 1 some other player's foot, cleats and all. •Sonny ripped a fingernail making a tackle mid the nail has been removed and tils finger Is necessarily rather tender for the present. However, though Coach Dlltly lias made no commitment it Is hollered that the game will find the pair in there If the Rtissellvlllc aggregation shows stout, resistance. Coaeh Dildy sent his charges through a light drill Monday afternoon and then ordered' them to the sliowcrs. Apparently the biggest task confronting the chick mentors nl present is guarding against over- conndericc on the part of Hie squad. Rnssellvllle nnd .Forrest City, Die remaining opponents of the Chlckasaws, do not rank on n par with oilier teams the Dildy Dynamiters have met this season and there may be a tendency lo let down In the remaining games no! particularly relish being on the small end of the scoring sheet. Aixl yet, Iti spite of the loss that we know must have been iv billet- pill for tlieih to swallow, we have not been able lo hear where any Soulli Bend player or any member of Ihclr party ever ultercd one word about UlythcviUe, our foo(b:ill team or our citizenship except somelhlnt' highly complimentary. Yo Olcle Scribe respectfully suggests Hint any crew Ihat can handle Its losses and disappointments us well ns llicy handled theirs would very probably be able also to keep themselves well within the bounds of good sportsmanship If (hey were on the winning end of (lie sccrc. We hope the people of South Bend, Indiana, can know just what a favorable impression their representatives from Rilcy High did make on Ihclr Irlp south. So fur ns (his department Is concerned, we have for them n feeling of (he highest regard, and we inihesl- going, to be a pretty long Utlncly proclaim. Idem ns true hop to Rnssellvillc and no definite sportsmen upon the basis of their word has been received here vet conduct in niythevlHc. as to whether the contest wll be . singed in the afternoon or ni' night. However, the Chlctaisaws should be notified not Inter than tomorrow ns to the time of the game. The Dope Bucket Bj J. P. FRIEND CHANCE—It's nn 111 .wind that blows nobody good. The slrcak of • bad luck that tagged Sonny Lloyd as lie ripped off a finger nail during; Friday's' game with'(Uley •High may give "Pounding Paul" Black• wood, the high stepping fullback, a chance he has beivv waiting for nil season. For th. is every In- dicatlcn that Lloyd will not start against Russellville this week, nnd may not be used at all. Sooooooo, the job falls squarely on the mammoth shoulders of the tall Blackwood. Paul's case this year has been odd. Every time he appeared ready to step right Into the first string lineup something. happened which threw him for a loss. Before the season Paul was counted on to be the logical successor to Murray Thompson. In the training period he looked great which cniised the coaches to rub their hands in keen anticipation. But shortly before the fiist game he turned up with a bruised leg. The assignment wns given to Willis Ford who was In 'perfect condition. It was some time before Paul was ready. Then came . the untimely death of his brother in an .automobile accident. The shock had a Ircmeudous effect on him. Prlcr to the Jonosboro game he again reached his peak but injured his arm after a few brilliant power drives. Now he is In tip lop shape as revealed by his great exhibition In the Riley game last, week. It has been seasons since the Chicks boasted a low, hard driving, full back who ran with his knees churrhig high. He looks like a natural. ,,, ,. , . »» iiitrji.' i> iiiui goes ns inr His misfortunes have retarded body without seeming lo PAYOFF BY 1IAUKY (iltAVSON NKA Service Sports lidilor Tlie sale of Dominic DIMnggio was delayed by his eyes.

But Joseph Cronln <lfd not have lo piny with Ddm DiMngglo, which Ihe manager of Ihe Red Sox did this full, to know that there was nothing wrong with the peepers of (lie 21-year-old-brother of Joe nnd Vincc. A ,3fiO baiting average in a Double AA loop, with most of the games played at night, Is sufficient proof of that. D. DiMngglo batted .30G In the Pacific Const League In 1937 and .307 last year. The third DIMaggio husn't -the liower of either of his brothers, but gets his bat In trout of the ball more often than Vince. who comes back with the Reds In the spring. Occasionally he does lilt n long one up or over Ihe left-field Tence. but -schooled observers doubt that he'll ever be a home-run manufacturer like Yankee Joe or even Vlncc. The newest major leaguer from San Francisco's Telegraph Hill weighs 170 pounds, but appears lighter. He has nicely built shoul- ' ?rs. A long, loping sliide and a placid countenance stamp him ns a Dl- MnURio. FOUR ASSISTS FROM CGNTKIt KIEI.I) IN DAY He is a natural, instinctive ball plnyer with a great arm, another DIMagcio trait.

The experience received this year topped by much play in the next two games, and a full campaign In '•)<) should just about get him ready for a fine college career. He is eligible for another year and Is counted on to return.

It has been said, probably a million times, that a true sportsman must know how to win and also know how to lose. In other words, he must know how lo win without crowing, and he must know how lo lose without beefing. It seems to us, from our observations, that it really is even harder for ' a fellow to-be a good loser than to be a good winner. Atry- ner. try- way, whether that be true or not, we certainly are In a ' position of wanting to hand the fleece-lined bath tub, or some other prize, to the youngsters from Indiana, and to the officials of their school who accompanied them, for their con- ilmself. He !»• the most Intelligent of the DiMngglos. The Boston Red Sox paid the San Francisco club plenty for Dominic DIMaggio and ' Larry 'owcll, a young left-handed pilch- IIR prospect who remains on the golden slope another year. Joe Cronln closed the deal himself. Billy Evans, the eld umpire who heads the Red Sox farms and s the organization's chief forager knew nothing about the transaction until it wns consummated. Charley Graham, president of the Seals, who has peddled so many stars, was asking $75.000 in cash and players (or Dominic dnr- Ins the season.

They brought lie me 12 victories and two ties. This quartet piled ui> 203 points lo their opponents' 72. Although the conference's oilier two clubs, Kansas and Icwa State, had only mediocre seasons, their Intersectional records blended with those of the "Big Four," still give Ihe conference as a whole a clear cut superiority over oilier sections. The complete records shows 14 victories, two lies and .six de- feals in 22 games outside the circuit. In compiling this record, the conference won two games frcm Big Ten opponents, tied one and lost one. Against the powerful Southwestern Conference, the Big Six achieved two victories, a lie, and no defeats. The record against the Eoeky Mountain Big Seven League shows three victories and one defeat. The sister Missouri Valley Conference was the only league to score an even break, winning two of its four gsinies against Ihc Big Six.

It was the first time a Nebraska team ever licked Pitt nnd Minnesota in the same season.
