Maybe you.heard criticism of lhe Chicks but we didn't—only glowing tribute for a fine ball club and a great game. Among those who watched the struggle was our contemporary. Eu-' gene Wiley of the Pine Biull Commercial. Now Wiley has been frankly rather skeptical' of the Chicks' ability on numerous occasions. But read what he says in his story about the game, lilting a paragraph: "It was a ciash of pavliaps the wo heaviest and two of the most 'cpresehlallvc elevens the twin ;tates boast.

Lei's I'lay Comnrjus Again It looks from Ihis corner as if every effort should bs made to schedule a game with Columbus here next season. Most of Blythe- vilie's big games are going to be away from home and \ve certainly ne.rf some good games here for the home fans. Certainly school officials can find no reason to coin- plain of attendance this season and it goes lo show that if you schedule big games you'll draw big crowds.

On the basis of past pcrform- inccs both matches should pro- •'idc action and plenty of it. The iljillty of Mobley is not questioned, and the fans have always been issurcd of a fine, clean bout when the handsome Texan is one if Ihc participants. Tex is one of he few remaining grapplcrs who idhere to the scientific phases of l he earne, and gives a fine show In doing so. Possessing a powerful 'air of legs, Mobley keeps his opponent constantly in hot water vith leg scissors, particular of the 'load type. His favorite stunt is to eap up. get his opponent's head 'Tetwecn his legs and hurl him lo 'he floor. Usually if lie is able lo vriggle free he Is-not in shape to )ut up much resistance.

But we cannot see the advantage of this. At least one of the teams, probably both, will suffer one or more defeats before the last of next season and under those cumsUmces we cannot see where their meeting would draw much of a crowd at Memphis.
