BYU quarterback gets national back honor t PROVO, Utah (AP) — Brig$ t ham Young University quarter- E back Gary Sheide wasn't in the ! mood for any discouraging ' words before his team took the field Saturday for a game with favored, IGth-ranked Arizona. His positive attitude helped carry the day. He threw five touchdown passes in his team's 37-13 victory, a performance that earned him the honor of being named The Associated Press' National College Back of the Week.

"I went into the game with a positive attitude," Sheide said. "We had no doubt as to what the final outcome would be.

It marked the climax to a seven-year dispute in which church groups led an anti- gambling battle to keep the track out of North Louisiana. But the $20 million facility was built after a Bossier Parish public vote narrowly approved it. Despite the long planning, there were some last-minute hitches. Right up to post time workers were clearing crates from stairways and moving construction equipments from the infield. Some carpet still was not laid, and the big glass enclosure for the stands was still in boxes.

A's Hunter selected as Cy Young winner RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Being selected as the top pitcher in the American League by winning the Cy Young Award hasn't eliminated Catfish Hunter's troubles with his boss, Oakland A's owner Charles 0. Finley. Hunter insisted in a telephone interview from his home in Hertford, N.C., after his Cy Young Award selection that Finley "still owes me $50,000 on this year's contract."' Asked about this and the possibility he might claim free agent status, Hunter said that and the salary matter would be discussed at a meeting between his attorneys, Marvin Miller of the Players Association and Bowie Kuhn, commissioner of baseball. "They're going to decide what's going to happen on that, "Hunter said. When Finley was asked about the dispute, he declined comment. "Why ruin a great day for Hunter," he said. Finley said he was "very proud and happy" for Hunter whom he described as "one of the finest gentlemen in the game." The 28-year-old North Carolinian appeared mildly surprised at his winning the Cy Young Award over Ferguson Jenkins of the Texas Rangers, who received 75 points from a 24-member panel of the Baseball Writers Association of America to 90 for Hunter. Hunter said he learned of his selection Wednesday afternoon when his wife told him after he returned from a fruitless deer hunt. "I thought Ferguson Jenkins might get it instead of me," Hunter said. He pointed out that both of them had 25 victories last season and that Oakland had won the World Series. "His team was not as good; so he had to pitch a little better, maybe," Hunter said. Hunter agreed that the Cy Young Award was the greatest honor to come to him during his 10-year career in the majors. By The Associated Press Playing with an extremely painful right arm Wednesday night, Atlanta's Lou Hudson led a fourth-quarter blast that powered the Hawks to a 104-96 victory over the Detroit Pistons. "It's the excitement of playing," said Hudson, explaining how he rose above exquisite pain. "You get that extra little energy, that extra little burst. Right now I don't think I can shoot the basketball 10 feet. Tonight it's going to kill me." Hudson hit on an 18-foot jumper to put Atlanta ahead 8887 with 4:50 remaining and added 10 more points before the final buzzer to keep the Hawks ahead. Detroit was ahead 86-77 four minutes into the final period. Then the Hawks outscored them 15-2 in the next five minutes, including the go-ahead field goal.

By Concerned Citizens Listed Above^ VOTE AGAINST THE MANUFACTURE AND SALE OF INTOXICATING LIQUORS!!!!! THE ISSUE: LOCAL OPTION LIQUOR ELECTION THE FACTS: DOLLARS AND CENTS COST Much more than purchase cost is involved in calculating the costs of alcoholic beverages to the citizens of our state: 1. CRIME; Conservative estimates of crime costs fix the cost per dollar of revenue at $1.51. 2. AUTO ACCIDENTS AND DEATHS: Estimates are that about 30,000 people in this country will lose their lives in traffic accidents that are alcohol related. Based on National Safety Council figures and State Police records these traffic accidents cost the citizens of Arkansas $2.29 per $1 of revenue generated by alcohol taxes. 3. ABSENTEEISM: Various estimates of the cost of absenteeism in business and industry in this country, calculated to be one-third of the national average, yields a cost of $.60 per $1 of revenue from taxes. Add to this the actual purchase cost (money that could have been spent on items that benefit the family and community such as clothing, rent, food, health services, etc.), the cost is $12.76 per $1 of tax revenue. REVENUES Total revenue from alcoholic beverages to the state of Arkansas for 1973: Excise Tax: Enforcement Ta*: Permit Fees: Special Taxes: Confiscated Liquor: $13,976,397.06 392,435.94 680,125.00 6,159,590.05 87.50 Total all revenues from alcoholic beverages: $21,208,635.55 This is $11.04 per capita coupled with a per capita cost ot the actual purchase cost of $140.91 per capita. The,sale of alcholoic beverages will remove a tremendous amount of money from businesses in this county if the local option proposal passes on November 5.
