(Staff Photo by Ronnie Thompson) BRIJTS BEAT With BRITT MARTIN THE DRAGONS looked toward Texarkana Friday after their convincing win over Kilgore Thursday night COACH BOYD CONVERSE said he was well pleased with the performance of his charges against the Rangers, particularly on offense. It was the finest offensive showing of the season by the Dragons. NOTHING'S SETTLED, but Collin Cannon of Hitchock, looked like a sure thing at quarterback for the Dragons. Cannon looked plenty sharp running the ball club and was one of the top real estate men for PJC, carrying the ball on keeper plays for good yardage. He also threw the football better than a Dragon quartei'back has done so far. And best of all, he didn't favor an old leg injury in the least. TEXARKANA COACHES Red Braden and Bobby Fox watched Lions' Miller Leads Rushii V In ISC Records Individual statistical leadership under went wholesale change, butj team domination remained fixed j as a result of hist week'5 action for Lone Slar Conference teams. Only one individual performer maintained his statistical leadership of the previous week after the dust had cleared from tilts involving seven of the eight LSC teams. John Marler, S. F. Austin State College halfback, remained in the lead in pass-receiving, with seven catches for 76 yards, even though he did not see service because of an injury that benched the action and seemed impressed by the Dragons. They were j him in his team's 36-0 loss to looking forward to a good battle here next week. !

Some unusual a.-lion look place before that seventh point flickered on Ihe Scoreboard. Fullback Doug Barrow booted the first try but an off-sides penalty put the Dragons back to their eight. Then Quarterback Jon Lesage broke through to block Barrow's next effort. This time the Rangers drew a half-the- distance penalty for a personal foil], setting the ball on the four. Barrow split the uprights on the next try. There were no red hankies on this one so Ihe Drag o n s forged ahead 6-0. Paris got the ball for their next scoring drive by holding on the PJC 36 on a fourth and one situation. The middle of the Dragon row returned the favor on t h ird down with a 36-yard quick kick.

And like Kilgore Coach Carl Ellis scowled after the game, "I'm tired of winning the halftimes and losing the ball games." It was Kilgorc's fourth defeat.

THE RANGER E T T E S scored at the half, and Ranger Band Director Wallace Reed scored in the third quarter with his crowd-pleasing trumpet solo of "The Story of Sorrento," but it took the Ranger football team until the fourth period lo get something that would count on the score board. The Dragons were real tough, and apparent I y are getting tougher. Wee Willie Goforth was the crowcl-plcaser for the Dragons. He scored nnce on a dashing 31-yard run, then took a punt back 70 yards with beautiful locking. Then, to add frosting In the cake, he intercepted a fourth-quart e r pass and danced ID yards svilh it. . . A QUICK SHOWER in the first half sent the fans scurry- ing for cover, but il quickly pnssed over and left a fine evening for football. The lights at Noyes Stadium seemed 100 per cent better. You can thank Dr. Bill Hayden and the donors who gave money to improve the lighting. The extra row of lights was up for Thursday's game and were very effective. Makes it much better on the halfbacks, too. They no longer have to carry the football in one hand and a lantern in the other lo locate the goal line. . SIDE LINE. • .The scouts were plentiful.
