J.W.Edrmgton LE The Dope Bucket By J. *. t-HIEND The Arkansas 1939 grid season paused Inlo history yesterday but nlrendy attenlion Is being directed to next year. The -chief concern surrounds the new six-semester eligibility i-u;e which goc.'; Into effect In 1010. Allen Tilden, Sports Editor ol Ihe Arkansas Democrat, gives a helpful nnd Interesting discussion en Ihe rule -)n hi.s column, "Every Noiv'n Tlinn." It | s ns follov,'s' " high .school football In for the next few years at least. "It Is hound to mean Inferior football next season nnd probably lor the next two or three," lie explained, "hut after that I believe things will adjust. themselves. Caichrs will lie forced to devote more ultenlion lo Junior high Si-ads during liieir /list semester in school, and count on bringing ! players to their peuk In their third >'iisoi>, rntlter than tlicli- fourth. And the rule has its good points, It will eliminate the 'old men' In Arkansas High school football. After It's been In operation a- year or two you won't, find 15-year-old boys: competing against 21-year-old men. It provides that lu slx.semc.slf-r high schools- n student shall lie eligible for nthlellcs only during the first six semesters of his enrollment. Aclnnl competition hns notli- ln« lo do with It. If a boy u-nils until the fall of his third year t« piny football, his eligibility is limited to one 1 season. "Too." Quigley pointed out, "it llffccts us !l ". so wl 'ilo the fcot- lwl1 l )1:i y«l '" n y be a bit inferior tor !1 J ' ear 01 two ' tllc t(lflllls should sti " |J(! eral| 3 r "intched," Qulglcy admits Mint ho Is worried nljout the effect the rule may have on basketball than on foot- Under ,he new iliirteiil Is allowed the present, rule, four ye which fall, a irs of 'ta. cmnitc . an n ' OI COUrse ' ma '' yenvs ' lo two of ~ whirl, nrnvlrle<! ss, = all plny- »™««l In high high prof.s and get 'em to bear down on'footUall players. If we can flunk 'cm a couple of limes in junior high then maybe they'll lie lilli enough to play football when they finally get to high school." It's an Iden. "And," moaned a college mentor, "It means that our freshmen nrc going to lie 17-year-old kids Instead of ia nnd 20-year-old boys It's going to alfect college football too. Guess we'll have to stnrt .sending 'em to junior college for a couple of years while they grow up." Trims North Little Rock LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Dec. 1- A crazy bounce early In the second quarter preserved the Little Rock T'gcra 1 Thanksgiving Day football record against the 'North Little Rock Wildcats nt the High School stadium yesterday afternorn, The Tigers converted that bounce into a touchdown for a C-to-0 victory. It left the majority of the oioivd ct approximately 5,000 persons In n jubilant mood despite the rain. The ;iilnorlty, .constituting wildcat supporters, had little lo be thankful for. 11 was a climax of a none-toc-successfiil season. After stopping the Tigers in the first nuarter nnd holdin» them on even terms, the Wildcats suffered the misfortune on Ihe second play of the second quarter. Among- the oldest of dyeing processes known is that used In French West Africa. Indigo leaves chnrccal, and water are placed In a 30-foot pit. The cloth to be dyed Is then placed In the solution and left from one to 10 days. ..." - • "There's just one thing I see to 'IPfore playing his fourth year. Under the new rule, If n student 'flunks" nnd misses n season of Football, his actual competition is ^ut to two years. Eighteen of the 22 players on .he first nnd second Tigers squads will be Ineligible for competition n 19-10. Not n lew will still be in \igh school, hut not, eligible, for foolball under Ihe now rule. -. .. Al Pine Blulf, Coach Allen Dima- way loses 18 or nls first 20 men.

At North Little Rock nil but hreo of 35 players on the Wildcat 1st Id- Ttnu-sdny's Little flock game were named on the :core cnrd for the 1937 engagement.
