Fresh from a successful campaign in which he nailea down a vice presidency on the Blytheville High student council, Connell was defeated in a three-rounder at Legion Arena Saturday night by Gerald Parish of Jackson. Richard was so shocked by the decision he turned and stormed out of the ring, ignoring his opponent's hand and the restraining arm of his coach Lawrence Cassidy. A few minutes later, realizing that his swift exit was not the sporting thing, came out of the dressing with Cassidy to find Parish and shake hands. Blytheville fans who sympathized with Connell were pleased to see the southpaw halfback reconsider shaking with his opponent, even though they, like Connell, knew a boo-hoo boo-boo had been made.

That became apparent during the weekend when baseball's first $10Q,OpO-plus pitching pair, holdouts until 12 days ago, put in strong bids for opening-week starting assignments with the world champion Dodgers. Los Angeles an inch. In Class Big Bruce ... A Gary Green of Paris won three events, breaking the record with a 50.1 clocking in the 440 dash. Green also won the 100 in 10.2 and the 220 m 22.5. Other records in Class A went to Bill Sorrels of Atkins with a 12-7 pole vault and John Cunningham of De* Are with a 22-5% broad jump. * * * Gary Boyd of Pea Ridge set the only Class B mark, a 21 flat in the 180 low hurdles. BRUCE BATEMAN, BLYTHEVILLE HIGH SENIOR, ran the 440-yard dash in 52.4 last week in the Tiger Relays. It was not swift enough to point in the quality field but was just 9/10ths of a second off the BHS record. Bruce might be personally disappointed in himself that he hasn't done better in the broad jump (although he was second at Li'l Rock) after showing such promise last spring. His difficulty is that he Isn't able to get more height in his leaps. It might be because he was a 158-pounder last year and is up to 175 now (which is a better football weight for him). Bruce plans to play football in college. Scholarships have been offered. I'm led to believe he has already picked his school. Sikes Collects AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP)-Springdale, Ark. golfer R. H.

WATCH For The Grand Opening Announcement Of BOWIIN-BARBER FURNIIURE CO. In Osceo/o Coming Soon! Koufax pitched six innings of no-hit ball, striking out nine and retiring the last 16 men in order, as the Dodgers defeated Cleveland 3-0 Saturday. They Sunday, Drysdale pitched six innings of shutout ball, allowing just six singles and striking out •our in a 6-0 victory over the Indians. * * * The performances in the closing exhibition games left the aces of the Dodger staff, who combined for 49 victories last year, anxious to make their first starts sometime this week. "I'll be ready to pitch Wednesday and I'll go as far as I can," said Koufax. But he cautioned that "we'll just have to wait see how far.that can be." "I feel the same way," said Drysdale. "I'll be ready _Friday and I'll pitch as many innings as I can." In light of their lengthy hold- lively as they did Saturday and Sunday has to be considered a plus factor for the Dodgers, who earlier estimated longer delays before Uie pair would be ready. * * * Koufax, as a matter of fact, will be getting a jump on last year's pitching schedule if he opens Wednesday — the Dodgers' second game — since his arthritic elbow kept him on the sidelines until the fourth game last season.
