FRIEND The Arkansas High School Conference moves into the semi-finals this week with four conference tilts and a quartet of other contests involving loop members composing the menu. Two gnmes are scheduled for _BLYTHEY!LLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEW3 surprise as the felines were doped the stronger. FOITMI City, beaten by Jonesboro and North Little Roek, took, n kick nt the clopebiicket with nil unexpected 19-H win over Jfus- sellvlllo. Ciimdeii broke into the iviii column willi an easy 20-0 win over ForUycc. Blythcvllle save Arkansas football a definite boost with an impressive 39-0 win over James Whitcomb Riley High of Sowtli Bend, Ind., In an Intcrsccllonal battle. Tlic Chicks rolled up 32 jwints in the first linlf and plnyed conser- in Nnsliville Ihe E! nnd third and fourth Dorado downed lienton downed Catholic High In other non-conference games, Papooses To Play Fairview Blythcvllle fans have their Thursday, five for Friday and one on Saturday. Our own Blythcvllle Chicks, vic- lorious in their last four games, which Include brilliant triumphs over Hope and Jonesboro, conference members, and the intersec- tlonal game with the strong Hiley High Wildcats from South Benri, Ind., travel to Russellville to do battle with Coach Wallace Bailey's Tornado, Friday. It will be the first athletic contest between the two schools. Two Play Early Pine Bluff and Ctarksville get the jump on the others by scheduling games a. day ahead. The Zebras, assured of at least a tie in the title race, have an mtersec- tional engagement with Georgia Military Academy nt Atlanta, Ga., Thursday afternoon. That night Clarksvilte entertains the Red Devils from Atkins at home. Oilier than the Chick-Russell- ,yille sctto, which is certain to nt- tract plenty of attention because of the fast comeback of the tribe and their first appearance at Russellville, the Port Smith-North Lil- tlc Rock battle is the No. 1 game of the week. Victorious over Little Rock by a two touchdown margin and beaten by Pine Bluff by Ihe same S'core, the Grizzlies will lioifi si slight edge over the Wildcats. Their advantage is increased by the fact that they are playing in Fort Smith. • . •. In recent years when El Dorado pnd Fordyce came together each season it was considered a classic worth attending. But not so this time. The oil city Wildcats appear to have entirely too much on the ball for the hapless Red Bugs outfit which has yet to bag a game of any sort. It will be played at El Dorado. Joncsboro vs. Walnul'Ilidge Idle last week the courageous Jonesboro Golden Hurricane swings into action ngninsl Walnut Kldgc. The game is slated for Woodland Field in the Cratghend center. Hot Springs and Mnlvorn tniigle in a non-conference game at the Spa to complete the Friday list. While outsicte the fold, the Leopards have dished out misery aplenty to loop members ami should make it Interesting for the Trojans bo- fore succumbing lo superior weipht and numbers. As a tuneup for the annual scrap with North LHtle Rock, the Little Rock Tigers take on Camden at the capital city Saturday afternoon. The Panthers have been bashed around from pillar to post and should offer little more thau n workout for the defending champions. Coach Clyde Van Sickle likely will take the opportunity to give his reserves a chance to shine. Two scoreless tics featured play within the conference last week. Little Rock spoiled the perfect record of Pine Bluff by playing the touted Zebras to a. dogfall in n veritable sea of mud at Jordan stadium. Sheer statistics gave the Duniuray Dead n C-4 edge In first downs. They also penetrated farther into Little Hock territory but. lacked the necessary punch lo swim over Ihe final stripe. North Little Rock and Hot Springs also felt the effects of the elements and were unable to produce a tally in llielr mud battle. Sparked by a 92-yard sprint by Uie fleet Bobby Ellen, the Hope Bobcats won their ninth game of Ihe year by drubbing Clarksville 18-0, The high score was tlic only last opportunity to sec n home game this season when the Junior High Papooses face the strcng Fiilrvlcw Juniors of Memphis here Thursday night. Thi Chicks -uound up their home schedule against Ritey High of South Bend, Ind., here last Friday night and Thursday's battle will be the last for the Juniors. Cooach Jchn Ed James, who has received the raster of the Hfem- phians from Coach Tom Fleet, said the weight chart gives the visitors a decided advantage in this department but he Is hoping that Blythe- vllle's si>eedy backs and wide-open style of play will offset the beef. Anctlier thing that will tend to place the Papooses in the role of underdogs (s tlic fact that two of the Blythevillc regulars arc listed as doubtful starters. Fullback Tommy Little THIS hurt in the Newport game and did not sec service last week against the jonesbrro Juniors and unless he lias fully recovered by Thursday night Coach James will not send him into the game. The other doubtful starter is Bobby Walden, defensive end star, who was recently thrown for a loss by Old Man Flu. in the event that Little is net available Thursday night his chief Understudy T. H. Caraway will step into the lullback slot. The starting assignment at left end if Walden cannot play will lie between Harry "Hank" Haines and Gregory Adkins who alternated at the flank position against Jonesboro last week. With Little on the bench the ball-carrying duties will be up to the • Paptoses' two fleet runners, Herman Besharse and J._T. Victory, whose ground gaining lias been a fealUr'e of ; the Junior team's play this year.; The Dope Bucket IMPRESSED — Coaches Forrest Wood nnrt Harold Koss of Ihe Kilcy Wildcats tossed plenty of bcu(|iieli> nl Norman "Monk" Mosley, Sonny Lloyd, Bill Godwin, Danny warrlngUm, Alvln Justice, Hugh Jlnrbeit nnd John Pmilk for their grent performances Friday night ns (he Chicks turned back the Invading Hoosicrs. When Informed (hat. the touchdown twins, Sonny nnd Monk, were only sophojnores nnd hiul two more years yet lo play, Couch Wood exclaimed: "I'hcwl What players they should be when they lire ready to finish.

They are head anci shoulders over the Indiana centers and ends. 1 like the way this boy Justice worked. He was seldom out of position, to say least of being on tlic ground. He lins strength. And the big boy in the backfield (Paulk) nnd the back who Intercepted the touchdown puss in the last half (Harbert) did all right, too." Asked as to the relative strength of the Dilrty Dynamiters and the best In Indiana, Coach Woods said they didn't play that brand of football in the stale. With the possible exception of one team, Evansville, he' was convinced there was not a team in the state which could give Blythevlltc a battle. He rated his own team third strongest, just a step behind the others. He couldn't believe that there were three teams In Arkansas which had beaten the locals, and said lie was glad his team didn't have to play the others if they are better. PICKS — Billy Shelton, sports editor of the Jonesboro Tribune, rates Bill Godwin and Alvln Justice as all-State, and places Danny Warrington nnd Sonny Lloyd on the second team in his recently back; Carter, Little Rock, Fullback. To save you the trouble of totaling them up, that's six from Pine Bluff, four from lilylhevllle, ami Little Rock, three from Hot Springs, two from Joncsboro and Hope, anci one from El Dorado.
