JSC Tigers Face Arkansas Golden
Lions Here Saturday Afternoon
Saturday afternoon the Jack
jon State College Tigers will go
against the Arkansas AM&N
Golden Lions. The game, an im
portant Southwest Athletic Con
ference affair, will be the sec
ond conference game of the sea
son- for the Tigers. In their first
conference game, the Tigers
routed Prairie View A&M 41-7.
They also hold decisive victories
over two non-conference foes.
According to news from Pine
Bluff, the AM&N College Gold
en Lions, with only five seniors
and a new coaching staff, are
in the process of rebuilding this
year. This does not rule them
out as a “championship contend
er” though. A review of the
Lions’ roster reveals one of the
finest array of running backs
in the conference. Leading the
line are halfback* Paul McPh
erson (junior) Courier All-A
merica, and Willie Roberts (sen
ior) the “Pine Bluff Express;”
ard fullbacks Horace Williams,
a 6' 1”, 216-pound junior pile
driver. The line, though short
on experience and depth, will
seldom be outweighed, averag
ing over 225 pounds per man.
The Lions are still looking
for replacements for quarter
backs Lindsey Henry, a grad
uate, and Oscar Fuller, lost to
Uncle Sam. Lion supporters feel
that if adequate replacements
are found, the Lions will spring
a few surprises before the close
of this season. If not . . . well.

couldn’t capitalize on them, the
results. A 14-3 Southwestern
Athletic Conference football loss
to Grambling College in Uni
versity Stadium Saturday after
For the second straight week,
the Jaguars have won the sta
tistics battle, have failed to
score a touchdown, and are yet
to win a game in two tries on
the current season the same
thing prevailed in the 20-6 loss
to Texas Southern last week.
This marked only the second
time that Grambling has won
from Southern in nine scattered
games dating back to 1936, and
the Tigers never had an easier
time than in the loosely played
contest Saturday afternoon.
During the entire first half,
Grambling had but 13 plays
from scrimmage and never ad
vanced the ball further than
its own 42 yard line, but as
hard to believe as it might seem,
they led at the end of the half
by 14-3.
With 4:10 minutes left in the
first quarter, the first of the
gratis touchdowns was scored
when Southern halfback Verdis
Theus had the ball plucked from
mid-air in a muff by Gramb
ling’s J. D. Garrett who raced
47 yards to score.
Garrett then converted to
make the score 7-0.
When the first scoring fatil
ity came, the Jaguars were in
the middle of a drive which had
started on the seven yard line,
which was nestled near mid-field
in only six plays, the big one
being a 25 yard gain by Carroll
Holman following a magical,
bootleg feat.
Southern failed to score in the
first period, but an interception
on a Ronnie Pennington pass
by Jaguar center Elisha Jack
son in the second quarter, set
the stage for the Jaguars lone
three points.
Following Jackson's 10 yard
return with the interception
from the 27 to the Tigers 17,
Verdis The us carried two yards
to the 15, then following two in
complete Holman passes, fresh
man halfback John Clayton
came off the bench to kick a 23
yard field goal to make the score
Still in the second quarter.
Jaguar tackle Oscar Trent fell
on a Grambling fumble by Roy
Shelling on the Tiger's 34, then
in three plays, the Jaguars mov
ed to the Grambling 22.
Again Clayton was called up
on for field goal duties, only
this time, the fake was on, as
the frosh halfback passed per
fectly to Charles Williams only
to have the senior end miss a
perfect peg which had touch
down written all over it.
The Jaguars had maneuvered
all the way to the Grambling 30
yard line in still another drive
before time ran out in the half,
with the Tigers up by 14-3.
Grambling's second touchdown
had been registered following
an attempted Jaguar on-side
kick which suffered a complete
reversal of planned strategy
when Tiger end Charles Cook
uncorked a surprise 61 yard
scoring gallop, with Garrett add
ing his second conversion.
