—!_A THE PARIS NEWS, THURSDAY, OCT. 6, 1960 Dragons Try Rangers In TEC Grid Tussle Riddled but ready, the Paris Junior College Dragons entertain Kilgore's Rangers at 7:30 tonight at .\oy<?s Stadium in a Texas Eastern Conference grid battle. A number of changes have been announced by the PJC coaches, largely due to the injuries. Other changes were made in an effort to strengthen the Dragon offense. Considering Hie injuries, t h e Area Elevens Tangle Tonighi In anare game should be tabbed as a tossup. Otherwise the Dragons vould rate the nod on their 2-1 record. The Rangers are 1-3 for the season. The Dragon offense has a new look this week. End Billy Hall will j Freshman, from Wolfe City, will open at center. Travis Hough, the 165-pound Soph., will open at quarter, but will probably give way to Mickey Flippcn, ifiO, and Collin Cannon, 165, Cannon has missed out since WILDCATS MEET TIGERS FRIDAY definitely miss the skirmish due the first game because of a bad to an injured shoulder. Gene i knee. Helms, a Freshman from Nvw-j Solid Doug Harrow, a'195-pound- Diana who has missed actioni 0 r, will be at fullb-.ick. Johnny most of the season because of Hood, 170, and Wayne Williams, flu, will fill in for him. Helms weighs 175. Sherwin V o c u m, 105, and a Sophomore, will be the other end. 175, will open at halves, although David Perkins, 175, will spell Williams from time to time. SOPH STARTER — Slender Travis Hough, a 165- pound Sophomore from New Diana, has been named as starting quarterback for the Dragons tonight-against Kilgore. Passing has been a big problem for the Dragons this season, but they are likely to hit the airways more. Mickey Flippen of Paris and" Collin Cannon of Hitchcock will also see action at quarterback. (Paris News Staff Photo) BRITTS BEAT With BRUT MARTIN Plenty of area action will be available Friday night for football fans in the Red River Valley. The headliner may well be in Clarksville where the Clarksville Tigers and DeKalb Bears square off in a 13-AA scramble. The Tigers are being considered as a strong contender for the title after a strong showing and an uphill win over Pau! Pawitt last week. However, the Bears have always been hard for the Tigers to beat, no matter what the circumstances. Another 'triller may be a t Cooper where the Bulldogs take on Farmersv ;)1 e. r'ooper has yet to win a ball game this season, but this Lould be the night. Bogata plays a Thursday game, hosting the Paris High 'B' team. Talco takes on tough Wh i t e Oak at Talco Friday night. The Roughnecks are one of the top teams in the state, but Talco has been looking good so far. Fanninde! goes to Bells for a 14-B fracas. The Falcons are favored ir that one. Across the Big Red, Hugo entertains Durant in an important locr battle. The Buffs fell to Paris last week but hopes to hit t'h e victory trail again against a favored foe. Honey Grove, now out of t h e top ten, tends, its wounds this week, and bolsters for a ruggec scrap next week. PHS FRESHMEN TRY SHERMAN GRIDMEN Tho Paris High Freshman football team will be gunning for their third victory in five starts when they host Finer Junior High of Sherman at 3:30 p.m. ioday al Wise Field. Coach Billy Reddell h a s named a starting line of O.B. McClouH and Terry Peek at ends, Richard Abshire a n d Boyd Cunningham at tackles, -Mike Merritt and Orv i 11 e Godfrey at guards, and Danny Harris al cester, Backfield starters include Sammy Reiger at quarterback, Roger Gray and James Johnson at the halves, and James Fults at fullback. PICKING THE WINNERS appears to be no easier this week than at any earlier time although we have had a chance to see many of teams in action and have read or heard reports on the others. FRIDAY'S ACTION should be interesting in 6-AAA as well as for teams in the Red River Valley. Paris faces a stern test in ML Pleasant, Clarksville faces an always tough foe (for them) DeKalb in Clarksville, Cooper jumps into competition at home, TaJco takes on highly ranked White Oak, andj Hugo hosts Durant in a loop battle. Fannindel journeys to Bells and Honey Grove will gladly observe an open date in hopes that their injury list will be shorter next week. i GUESSES LAST WEEK came out well in our favor, 14 right,! four wrong and two ties. Discounting the ties, the season total is now 55 right and 27 wrong for a .667 average. Hoping to boost tbe total a bit higher, fhese are our picks for the week: PJC OVER KILGORE — Admittedly, the Dragons are short on offense, but they are long on defense. We feel that the Dragons will I win in a thriller, 13-7. MT. PLEASANT OVER PARIS — With or without Charles Masters, the Tigers should be tough enough to take the Wildcats. But without him, the Cats will make em earn it. Score: 22-12. GIBBONS OVER CARVER — All that offensive material should produce another win for the fast-moving Gophers over the boys of Greenville. CLARKSVILLE OVER DEKALB — Still another win for the Tigers. DeKalb is oft-beaten, but will likely prove tough for the Tigers to handle. Power will pay off. say 20-M. COOPER OVER FARMERSVtLLE — It's time for the Bulldogs to win one. They are long overdue. The Farmers may have other! plans, but we'll take Cooper, 12 to 8. j FANNINDEL OVER BELLS — The Falcons should have little trouble in swooping to a 28-0 triumph over undermanned Bells. PARIS 'B' OVER BOGATA — The young Wildcats may find the Bulldogs vicious and win-hungry. But they should give the Canines another licking. Score: 30-20. WHITE OAK OVER TALCO — The Trojans have a strong ball J club but we don't believe they can stop White Oak, one of tbe top Class A powers. Score: 22-16. HUGO OVER DURANT — An upset choice for the Buffaloes. Durant and Idabel are rated as tops in the conference, but the Buffs are pretty Etout. Score: 14-13. EAST TEXAS STATE OVER TEXAS A£,l — Another upset choice. East Texas has not jelled offensively, yet. But their defense may \ be strong enough to nudge the Javelinas. 14-8. I McKINNEY OVER GREENVILLE — All the McKinney foes have: bowed this season, most of them AAAA schools, too. Growing Greenville can't match the pace. The Lions by 22-0. BONHAM OVER COMMERCE — Time for the Purple Warriors to get back on their winning streak. Commerce has a good line, but should fall, 35-7. MESQUITE OVER SULPHUR SPRINGS — Another loss for the hard-tackling Wildcats. Mesquiie's 'Skeeters will sting em, about 20-0. NEW BOSTON OVER HOOKS — Should be one of the best AA games in the state. They are the powerhouses of 13-AA. New Boston has fo.ur backs among the top 10 scorers. Score 15-H. LI8ERTY-EYLAU OVER ATLANTA — Everybody beats the Rabbits, but the Leopards may have trouble. Score b-7. DIPPING INTO the tea leaves for a look at the Southwest Conference, we find Baylor over Arkansas, Florida over Rice. Navy over SMU, Texas over Oklahoma, A&M over Houston, and TCU over Texas Tech. Drat the luck—it was the SWC picks that messed us up last week, . , .. East Paris Rips Pearson, 26 to 0 A quartet of hard running backs and a strong defensive line paved the way for the East Paris Dragons Wednesday afternoon as they plastered the Rosa Pearson Yel- lowjackets 26-0 at Wise Field. It was the first Ward Sch o o 1 conference game of the campaign and puts East Paris in first place, at least for one day. More games are on top this week. : Halfback Bob Barker raced 60 yards on a reverse for the f i r s t touchdown. Quarterback Bob Long passed lo Jim Mills f o r the extra points. Parker steamed back later for 40 yards and a touchdown on a quick opener. Hafback Robert Mood slammed off tackle for another six-pointer ar ' Fullback Randy Morphcw crashed the middle for two yards for the final tally. Coach Bob White named Mills, Ken McKim, Johnny Bell and David Kelso for good defensive showings. Three lads — Tackle Danny Stone, Quarterback Bill Reeves and Halfback Jimmy Lowry were praised by Coach Joel Casey. Stoi.e was outstanding on defense while Reeves ran well at halfback and called a good game at quarterback. Reeves directed t w o drives to the Dragon 10 in the first half. Lowry also ran well on offense. Rice Chunker Leads Passers By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The ustnl resolution "we'll pass more (his season" was made by most of the Southwest Conference football teams. But action in the air has been quite mild. Statistics of !he season to date show that the schools have averaged 12.B passes per game. The only real activity -at throwing the ball has come at Southern Methodist, which has averaged 20 1 !- per Same. Rice has averaged 16 and Texas Christian 15.7 but the others are not Bvera.qing over 12 and one Texas A&.M—has only tried five per game. Billy Cox of Rice is the leading passer with 14 completions out of 27 for JS3 yards. The Yankees established a home run record; against Cleve-- iand's ace pitcher, Jim Pe r r y. They hit him for 15 home runs in I960. He got in eight of the 22 games the foes played. LD HODCBt ATTENTION TRUCKERS!

The Rangers operate off the split "T" and run the belly series. Paris, on the other hand, operates off the standard "T". Should Quarterback Charles .Masters be unable to see action for Ml. Pleasant there Friday night, lots of Pa r i s High fans feel that the W.i Id- cats could pull off an upset. Kick-off time in the 6-AAA opener for I he two clubs is set for S o'clock. Masters, an All-Slate selection last fall for his triple- threat ability, missed the Tyler Lee game last week and saw his males come up on the .short end of a 6-0 score, the first shutout a Ml. P I ea- sani eleven had suffered in 'Ifi games. Nobody figures the Wildcats will be able to hold I lie Tigers scoreless, even without Masters. But the Parisians are dangerous on punt returns and the outside plays. M o re lhan that, they may be better on the passing attack this week. Ml. Pleasant has lost three games lo state power-houses —Nacogdoche.s, Tyler Lee and Kil.yore, The latter, which roared back in the closing minutes to nick the Bengals, is currently rated as the t o p AAA (cam in I he slate. Tyler Lee is also rated among the top ten, and Nacogdoches is on the way up. The Parisians are in the best health of recent weeks with only minor bruises here and there comprising the injury list. End John Paul Bailey is still hobbled with a sprained ankle, but will probably see plenty of action, The starting lineup for Paris will he altered slightly (his week. Coach Raymond Berry has switched the backfield somewhat. Durrell Roddy will be al tailback, Jimmy Davis will be the wingback, Johnny Inscoe the blocking back, and Steve Dielz at fullback, Ends will be Bradley O'Brien and Tony Hutto, Tackles Ronnie Johnson and Glenn Billingsley, Guards Ronald Prince and Ronald An t o ine, and Center David Dcnney. Going to defense. Leslie Route will check in for Jimmy Davis and Newt Davis will move in for Dcnney. Neu'l Davis will also handle kickoff and extra point k t c king chores. Paris 'B', Bogata Tangle Tonighi Lois of players are expected to see action tonight \vhei\ the Pam High "B" team lacklcs Bogaln's Bulldogs in Bogata. Kickoff time is scheduled for a o'clock. Coaches Sonny Pagan and Rob- rl Abshire reeled off the games of 15 players, only 11 of which'can starl. The biggest problem seems to be winfiback. Willie Rans o in, Jimmy Wilson and Cliff Pope are all likely to log lime there. Mike Horn and Kelsey Gibbs will probably split time at fullback. Ronnie Jones and G. I. Hodges will probably share (he same fate a I tailback. Other starter. 1 !'include Charles Sterling at center, Freddie Swaim and Jerry Davis at guards, Spike Ashmore and Skippy Smith a t tackles, and Tommy Weils a ml Bury! Flowers at ends. The Paris boys have some top talent lo contend with although Dogata has not won a game in years. There's Donnic Screws, a Iriple-lhrenler, Gary Screws, his hard rushing brother, plus Skip Glover, a fine pass receiver, and Lineman Morris Trimm. Next week the "B" team goes lo Sherman, after that [o McKin- n.oy, then returns home for four ' game.s. Gordon Leads Kansas City PITTSBURGH CAP* - Joe Gordon, former Detroit Tigers manager, has -igned a two-year ton- tract to manage the Kansas City Athletics.
