WHO'S AFRAID OF THE BIG BAD WOLF ?

FOLKS, DID YOU SEE THE PRESCOTT GAME ? YOU DID ? WELL , WHAT DID YOU THINK OF MY BOYS ? WEREN'T THEY HOT ? WEREN'T THEY HEROES ? THEY LOOKED LIKE A SUPER EDITION OF THE BULLPUPS , DIDN'T THEY ? THEY NOT ONLY CURLED THE CURLY WOLVES - THEY GAVE EM A PERMANENT WAVE !

BUT SAY - IT WAS CERAINLY NO CAKE WALK . THOSE WOLVES WERE A HIGH CLASS ASSORTMENT OF BOASTS . THEIR LINE WAS HEAVY AND PUGNACIOUS AND THEIR BACKS WERE BIG AND FAST AND HARD RUNNING . THEY MADE 17 FIRST DOWNS TO OUR (MY BOYS ) 10 . THEY WERE POTENTIAL SCORES AT ALL STAGES OF THE GAME. THEY COMPLETED PASSES AND HAMMERED THE GOAL LINE. THEY GAINED FREQUENTLY WITH RUNNING PLAYS AND THEIR PUNTING WAS OF A SUPERIOR SORT. YES , MA'AM THE WOLVES WERE MUCH TOGETHER THAN THE SCORE MIGHT LEAD YOU TO BELIEVE , AND IT WAS A GREAT VICTORY FOR THE DOGS .

 

IT WAS SO GREAT , IN FACT , THAT THE DOGS CAN COME INTO MY FIRESIDE ANY TIME NOW AND SCRATCH THEIR FLEAS ON MY IMPORTED RUGS . I'LL EVEN GIVE EM BONES TO GNAW . (ESPECIALLY HYDE ) THAT'LL KEEP HIM FROM BITING MY LEG . JACK DUNHAM , FOR HIS WORK , IS ENTITLED TO BARK AT THE CANARY AND CHASE THE CAT PLUM OFF THE PREMISES . JACK REALLY DISTINGUISHED HIMSELF . HE CHUNKED A PASS THAT WAS A MASTERPIECE OF DECEPTION . HE FOLLOWED INTERFERENCE LIKE A MECHANICAL RABBIT . THE TRICK OF COVERING HIS OWN KICK-OFF FOR A TOUCHDOWN BROUGHT MEMORIES OF JOHN SPENCER . AND A THING I LIKE PARTICULARLY ABOUT DUNHAM IS THE FACT THAT WHEN HE ISN;T CARRYING THE BALL HE DOESN'T MIND BLOCKING FOR THE ONE WHO IS. NOT ONLY ON REGULAR FORMATIONS HE HAS HELPED TO CAPITALIZE ON SEVERAL BREAKS THIS SEASON BY BANGING OUT THE OPPOSITION FOR HIS MATES .

 

SPEAKING OF BLOCKING , I'LL HAVE TO WATCH A LOT OF FOOTBALL GAMES BEFORE I SEE A BETTER EXAMPLE OF ABSOLUTE PERFECTION IN BLOCKING THAT THE PIECE TURNED IN BY J.P. HOLDEN WHEN RUST INTERCEPTED THAT WOLF PASS AND GALLOPED 72 YARDS . I CAN'T REMEMBER WHETHER HOLDEN TOOK OUT TWO MEN OR THREE , BUT HE CERTAINLY PUT RUST OUT OF DANGER . HE DESERVES TO RAID THE ICEBOX AN I WILL SEE THAT THE DOOR IS DELIBERATELY LEFT AJAR . RUST HIMSELF CAN SNOOZE IN MY FAVORITE CHAIR FOR SNAGGING THAT PASS AND FOR PLAYING A BANG-UP GAME OF BALL.

 

C.D. SMITH GETS TO CHEW THE PIANO . HE PROVED HIS VERSATILITY AND KEYED UP THE GENERAL EXCITEMENT WITH NUMEROUS SMART RUNS AND ALERT DEFENSIVE WORK . LIKE DUNHAM , C.D. IS VERY CLEVER AT TRAILING HIS INTERFERENCE TO THE BEST ADVANTAGE .

EVERY MAN IN THE FORWARD WALL WHITE , HYDE , BOMAR , LEE , BLACK , WILBURN SMITH AND THE AFOREMENTIONED HOLDEN , DESERVES A BIG HAND FOR HIS EFFORTS . THEY FOUGHT A MIGHTY GOOD WOLF LINE TO A STANDSTILL , OPENED HOLES FOR THE BACKS CHARGED LOW AND FOLLOWED THRU. FOR THIS , THEY MAY GANG UP AND HOWL AT THE MOON ALL NIGHT, THE CONCERT TO BE LED BY ALFRED SMITH , WHOSE QUARTERBACKING WAS SOMETHING TO BRAG ABOUT .

 

KINGSTON PERFORMED WITH HIS USUAL BRILLIANCE , HERE'S HOPING HIS LEG INJURIES ARE A THING OF THE PAST BY THE TIME OF THE JONESBORO GAME . THE FULL SERVICES OF MCKENZIE AND WHEELIS , TOO , WILL BE BADLY NEEDED AGAINST THE GOLDEN HURRICANE .

BOBBY GARDNER IS IMPROVING EVERY GAME . HE DEMONSTRATED HIS SPEED BY RUNNING BAKER DOWN FROM BEHIND AND MAKING A FLASHY TACKLE ON THE ONE YARD LINE . A FEW MINUTES LATER HE RECOVERED A FUMBLE AND MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR THE "DOGS" TO KICK OUT OF DANGER.

HERBERT HALLOWAY CUT LOOSE WITH EVERYTHING WHILE HE WAS IN THERE . HE WAS A BIG FACTOR IN SOME OF THE GOAL LINE STANDS . ONCE , HE LITERALLY WHANGED THE DAYLIGHTS OUT OF THAT BIG PRESCOTT BACK .

 

THIS BOY , J.M. FUTRELL APPEARS TO HAVE PLENTY OF CLASS . THERE NEVER WAS A FUTRELL THAT COULDN'T RUN LIKE A DEER , AND HE IS NO EXCEPTION . HE HANDLES HIMSELF WELL , IS A CLEVER PASSER AND A GOOD DEFENSIVE MAN .

TO TELL THE TRUTH , I STRAINED MY EYES ALL NIGHT , BUT COULDN'T FIND A THING WRONG WITH ANY OF MY BOYS !

ASIDE TO THE SQUAD : FELLERS , THERE MUST BE SOMETHING THE MATTER WITH THIS TYPEWRITER IT WON'T WRITE ANYTHING BUT PRETTY WORDS.
