FACE SIX Feller Rapped For Nine Hits ; Indian Mound Star Apparently Has Lost Some Of His Speed By CORNELIUS RVAN Vatic* frttf Sports Writer 'HEW YORK, April 27. <U£> — American League batters react th<! cherts pages with sprouting hope >4»y, finding the story of the Chi<*co . Bob HUNTING and FISHING In ARKANSAS White Sox' mistreatment of Peller almost 'as Interesting as Bs* box-score lines devoted to their «*n names. tt may be true what they said •**u( Feller. They said the big ftrtbouer had lost some of his (lie daring his .service in the Navy, and U»t Rapid Robert had slowed down to -where ordinary mortals could •«* him and upon occasion hit him though he pitched for the Athletics. feller came^back in the 1915 sca- tan and was unimpressive as he won flee and lost three. However, no one h*kt it against him because of hl« Me start, but the talk of a dcclin- kU2 (ast ball revived during spring tnlnlng. ' The Indian ace quieted the clis- eotsion with a three-hit job on the Wfclte Sox to open the season, but fXlcr hasn't won since then. He leiet a 10-innfng six-hit 3 to 2 game to Detroit, and yesterday gave up Mne hilB in losing, 4 to 2. , Tour of the hits came in succession in the fifth inning as the Sox By PAUL KOSKNK1EU) linlltd Press Stuff Correspondent LITTLE ROCK, April 27. (UP) — An Arkansas red fox might show U]> j wilh patches of gray hair in his fur after an all-nlghl chase with a pack of hound dogs. But, al leiist he doesn't get eaten. That is, he doesn't if Ihc hounds hapixm to he on a fox hunt sjx>n- sored by members of the Arkansas Fox Hunters' Association. Because these sportsmen—more than 1.600 strong in the slate today—are strictly In for the spoils thrill of an all- nlghl venture In Ihe hills. This organization that gives the dofis a work-out in one of Ihc cleanest sports of all. was first set up back In 1934. Membership at the time totaled 22, and they hauled their couple of down dogs oul lo 'he Cedar Park area near Conway. Enthusiasts were few ami far between at that time, whni Judge II. M. Rulhvcn of Mountain Home f.crvcd as their nrst president. Association members like to think of Jim WInn of Ltlllc Rock ns "daddy" of fox hunting in Arkansas. They say he has been the guiding hand behind most of the fox hunting activities In the stnle ever since lie started Ihc club and served a number of years as Il,s secrc- lary. Other leaders who have seen membership grow lo its present level Include Col. Ed Harper of Cnm- dcn, Dr. Joe Shultlcld of Little Rock, and Perry McNeil also of LHUe Uock.

And he says that more than 200 hounds will be In the field. As to the finer points of the T. Joe Young ol Kittle Hack Is a well-versed informer. Younn, also a member of tlio Pulaski County Fox Huntcr.s Association, says that lo a veteran hunter, the music of his dogs' volcc-s comes first — not the fox. He points out that Individual owners ean easily Identify the bass, alto or sopraaio barks of their dogs. And what's more. they can tell Just about how fni 1 away tlicy are from the fox and which dog i.s in the lead. And If you've got u doi; you think foe good til chasing foxes, better be sure of Ills pedi- would you'd gree. Young says that Just any old dog won't do— It lias to be eillier a July, a Walker. :i Goodman or n Triggs— all high-bred canines. Many of these pure-bred iloiis can run /or H hours on a stretch averaging 22 miles an hour. Young iidrt.i. The fox .sets the ]>ase at about 22 ni-p-h. If the dogs by any chance catch up with the fox and get him treed, the hunters arc right on hand to head the tired four-footers oil onto another scent. Very rarely— and then only If it Is mi accident— are the dogs allowed to tear Into the unnerved fox. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)
