Peige Twelve HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Thursday, October 21, 1948 Around the Arkansas Sport Loop By CARL BELL Little Rock, Oct. 20 —OF/— Nicknames arc as much a part of sports as baseballs and footballs. And the monickers arc not all common ones by a long shot. A check of the nicknames of 134 Arkansas high school and college football learns brings to light some interesting facts. For instance, the cat family is by far the most popular when it comes to nicknames. There are 45 teams in Arkansas named cats of some breed or other, with panthers, tigers and wildcats leading the field. !".., The most widely used single nicknames are bulldogs and panthers, each being used by 11 teams. Twenty-four teams are named after humans. These include Indians, various tribes of Indians, hillbUUcs, mountaineers, miners and lumberjacks. Among the most distinctive nicknames—each used by only one team—are the Goblins of Harrison, Arkansas A. and M.'s Boll Weevils, of Murfreesboro, Dardanell's Sand Lizards, the Red Bugs (or Chiggors) of Fordyce, Danville's Little Johns, and the Mule- riders of Magnolia A. and M. As far as we know, those names are not duplicated by teams in or out of Arkansas. There's a story behind the tag "Wonder Boys" for Tech's Athletes. It was back in 1919 when John Tucker, later coach and now athletic director at the Russellville school, was a backficld star at Tech. The old Jonesboro Aggies booked Tech as a "breather," but Tech won the game 14-9. The feat prompted Arkansas Gazette Sports Writer W. A. Wilson to call the Tech gridders "Wonder Boys." And wonder boys they have been ever since. "The original Wonder Boys" and their immediate successors lived up to their new name, too. In five years, they won 31 games, lost three—to Army, Texas A. and M. and Tulsa—and tied four. , Despite the fact that the nickname is borne by teams of the state's university, only one Irish school team in Arkansas is known as Razorbacks. That's Texarkana. Other once-used monickers are Cyclones, Hurricanes, Alligators, Badgers, Jackrabbits. Rice Birds, Shriner Potentate to Visit State Temple Memphis. Term., Ocf. 20 —(/T>)— Judge Galloway Calhoun of Tyler, Tex., imperial potentate of Shrin- ers in North America, will make an official visit to the Al Chymia Tempo here Tuesday. Milton Bovvers, Al "Cnymia potentate, said Calhoun will visit Pine Bluff, Ark., Saturday. Legion Turns to Serious Side of Meet Miami, Fla. Oct. 29 —(yp)— The American Legion returned to the serious side ot its convention today alter a deluge during its parade last night djimaged musical instruments, uniforms and floats but failed to dampen the carnival spirit. The rain, which piled water i-urb- decp along the ' parade rouio. caused an estimated $7,500 damage to the Miami Harvey Seeds Post band alone. Some 300,000 spectators were drenched, too Arch Canlrell, chairman of the Legion's band contest committee, said no complete estimate had been made of damage to instruments, but at least 30 units wore caught in the deluge which started about 8:30 p. m: Ironically, the rains came just s the California delegation — headed by Gov. Earl Warren — swung into the line of march. Bands already in the parade switched from "Moon over Miami" to "California Here I ; Come." Cahtroll said drumheads suffered, the worst. Base drum heads cost as high as $30 each and snare drumheads from $7 up, he said. Many floats were damaged, one about S3.000 worth. Spic and span uniforms were drenched and some were damaged. For four and a half hours the Legionnaires turned downtown Miami into a'fantasy of color, music, and fun that thoroughly delighted the huge crowd. The parade continued an hour and five minutes after rain started falling at. 7:30 p. m., but toward the end order fell apart. It looked like every man for himself as the final units splashed along, trousers rolled to the knees. Governor Warren, marching at the head of the California delegation, was drenched but still smiling as he came up to the open reviewing stand and joined Nation- Booties for Weil-Dressed Cuties .

MEALS TASTE BETTER WHEN YOU SERVE BLUE RIBBON BREAD AT YOUR GROCERS and BAKERY Egg Yield Depends on Proper Feed Egg production has its bottle- i pecks just the same as any other industry. Factors, such as materials to make the eggs and suitable and comfortable working quarters, affect the hen in her production of eggs, the same as they would in any other factory. The hen is very definitely an egg factory, Home Demonstration Agent Loiraine Blackwood explains. The hen manufactures a product containing water, proteins, fats and minerals; and to produce her best needs these materials in definite amounts. Lack of these materials in the proper forms and amounts is the first big bottleneck in egg production. Water, the item that makes up the biggest part of the egg, is too often provided in dirty and unsanitary containers, she points out. Cold weather is coming, which will mean cold and frozen water. A laying hen will not drink enough cold or ice water to keep up best production. Fresh water, not hot —but of ordinary temperature, should be provided the first thing in the morning, as well as during the way, especially during extremely cold weather. Protein for egg production is provided in the egg mash. Again a bottleneck is formed by not providing mash in suitable and convenient feeders. Bran, shorts and yellow corn meal do not make an egg mash. A good egg mash should contain about 20 per cent protein. This protein comes from meat scraps, dry milk, fish meal, soybean meal, peanut meal, and other protein concentrates. These concentrates must be added to ground grains in definite amounts for best results. Egg mash should he kept before the hens at all times, states the home demonstration agent. Insufficient and poor-quality egg mashes is another bottleneck m egg production. Grains are used by the egg fac tory to keep the body warm to provide body fat and to manufac lure egg yolks. A mixture of grain is better than any single grain. If the weather is cold, more grain is fed to provide the needed heat. The hens are given all the grain they will eat at night. Too much grain means overfat birds and too little grain means ligh body weight. Either condition low ers egg production, she explains. A good hen house for suitable working and living quarters is also a big factor in production It need not be an .expensive house To be satisfactory it should be warm in winter and cool in sum mcr and should provide light and iresh air. If the house does this the hen is happy. Straw or fodder on the northern and west side of the poultry house will cut out a lot of cold wind during the winter.
