County Coaches in Star Roles Two .Mls»i»»ippi .County .high .ichool.. coaches have been (elected to serve as assls- tents for East squads in the annual all-star classics in Little Hock this summer. In football, Howard Clsscll of Osceola was named to help Ken Stephens of North Litttle Rock. In basketball, John Widner of Leachville was picked to aid Jim Cathcart of Little Rock Central WWncr surprised many in the region by hauling his (Ma, injury-racked Lions from a shaky begining to a sweep of the Region 2-AA playoffs. * * * Clssell, one of Missco's top athletic products (he played at Wilson), who made a name in the professional Canadian League, guided the football Seminoles to the District J-A championship, the school's first clear-cut Class crown. The View from Here ED HAYES * * * .Move at Leachville KEEPING UP ON THE FAST SHUFFLE OF COUNTY ! coaches. • ; •;••... : Boyd Sheltori, who played, basketball at Manila High, " Southern Baptist College at Walnut. Ridge and Washnigton : University in St. Louis,' has'been' named head coach at South' land, 'the Arbyrd-Cardwell consolidated high school in ", Missouri. ; • . ' " ". He was an assistant at LeacKville two years ago under ; Harold Gwatney and held the same job last season under ; John Widner. • • ; (Widner, appropriately, has been named an assistant all' star coach for the East in the Aug. 13 high school classic in • Li'l Rock. The veteran coach, his first year in Mississippi " County, did a wow job with the Lions' and did an even better • job keeping secret his selection as an all-star coach; "I've • been sworn to secrecy," he said.), •••;•-'. • . •; * *•*•'.. In Shelton's place, Leachville has hired Charles Bowlin, young man from Stanford High in Greehe County and Arkan• gas State College. It's his first coaching job. As Widner'i : - assistant, his chief responsibility is junior high baseketball. • He might also.take over the high school baseball team, ". leaving Widner more time, to .develop the. Lions' golf pro- cram. Bowlin played some collegiate baseball. Speaking of Bowlin, Widner bfered: "He has a good : background in all sports but football. He fits into our program just fine. We're fortunate to get him." •• * •'*"'*' ' High school baseball for the season has ended at Leach' vffle The Lions were eliminated Wednesday 11-7 by Rector. :. It was a disappointing turn for the Lions' who started the week high on John Linck's no-hitter against Greenway. • Lanky Linck is the 6'2 basketball player who competed so effectively against the Blytheville Chickasaws>(and others) i last winter. He's a good thrower and hitter. '• Linck is sure to have offers from some of the Legion '•• teams in the area but he has mide up his mind to stay in ': Leachville and toil in the Tri-Counry Senior P.ony League. ' He's only 16. •' • • -" * . * * \ Legion or Pony? It's a question that has baffled others before Linck, ever since the age of American Legion baseballers has been extended. • • • . • •, • Should a boy, if he has the ability, step up into the faster world of Legion ball or should he be content to develop as a Pony Leaguer? ." ' • , u. "Faster world" in this sense, is relative. Looking at it with wide vision, "older world" would perhaps be more definitive'.' * • * * MEMBERS OF THE MANILA SCHOOLBOARD NEED not be told this. They already know it. They already know they made a good move when they hired Gaylon Ward to head the basketball program, promoting him from junior high to junior high AND senior high. Bobby Evans, who guided the Lions into the state tournament last season, is getting ready to move to Li'l Rock where he has a summer job and a winter job as head coach at Joe T, Robinson.. .(Bobby's wife plans to continue her education at LRU.) Gaylon'Ward knows Mississippi County and District 2-A basketball as well as anyone. He played high school ball at Leachville, college at'Arkansas State. Currently tied up with baseball at Manila, Gaylon is 25 years old (or is about to become that ripe : old age). * * • * Football at Manila Manila has taken .a deep plunge with the resumption of girls junior and senior basketball and the embarkment of a football program. Harvey Lee Hill has been called on to undertake both, projects. ' ' ' ••'• Manila has always figured prominently in girls basketball on the state 1 level—until the program was abandoned several seasons ago. Remember Wanda's Wonderful Ones? Hill, now at Holly Grove and formerly at Osceola, has a more strenuous chore in getting football started. I've been told that the Lions hope to play about two or three games this fall if they gather up enough equipment. They have scheduled no games yet. *.'"*.*' Manila can expect complete cooperation from the Arkansas Athletic Association. So says exec-czar Jbhnie Burnett who is perpetually, encouraging state schools to put on cleats. "Benefits from football are.inestimable," Johnie has said, in effect. Too bad Manila, which has considerable influence in the region, can't get some other non-football schools, or grid schools that are struggling, to get together in a six-man league. It's a way to start. Anyway, good hitting, Lions! Board Says Nay to Clay : LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) : The chairman of Cassius Clay's ; local draft board says his inter! pretation of Muslim law contra; diets the heavyweight champi: en's claim that, serving, in the armed forces would go against his religion. . . ,, The contradiction, J. Allen Sherman said Thursday, caused the rejection of one appeal made by Clay of his 1-A draft status.''...' The other appeal, in which Clay said Induction in military service would,present i hard- Chip; also was rejected by Local j Board 47 in Louisville, Sherman said. Edward Jacko Jr., Clay attorney in New York, said, "The appeal is predicted mostly on hardship, because the hardship exists at this time." »..,«. *, .But he said there are "eight or nine grounds for the appeal, including .conscientious'.. objector." Jacko didn't elaborate on the others. ' Sherman said both, appeals were referred to Kentucky's Western Judicial. Circuit Appeal Board at Louisville. MAJOR LEAGUE STANDINGS NATIONAL LEAGUE W. L.

Unbeaten during a stretch of three games and two rainouts since being reinstalled as New York manager, Houk wanted Thursday night's weather- threatened game at Minnesota to be played in an attempt to mainain the Yankees' momentum. But, the. Yankees ran out of momentum when they ran into Jim Merritt, and went down 4-3, the first loss since Houk replaced Johnny Keane and masterminded the streak that swept •the Yankees out of last place into ninth. * * * It was cold and windy before the game and Twins' owner Cal Griffith talked to Houk about a postponement until the day after the All-Sar Game. Houk vetoed the idea because it would deprive the Yankees of a three- day rest period. And there was the Yankees' momentum to consider, following two straight postponements. So the game went on. The only thing it rained was hits. The Yankees collected 11, but only one after Merritt came on in the sixth inning and cut off a Yankee rally. .On the other end of the standings, Chicago and Baltimore also poor weather, the White Sox defeating the Orioles 5-3 despite a constant drizzle. In the only other games played Washington downed California 4-2. * * * The Twins packed eight singles and their four runs into the third and fourth innings with Earl Battey and Cesar Tovar each collecting a pair of hits. The White Sox-Orioles game was marred by the rain which contributed to seven errors, five by the White Sox. There also were 10 walks and three wild pitches. Don Buford did most of the damage for the White Sox, triggering three rallies with a sin- gle,'double'and triple. Don Lock carried the Senators to their victory over the Angels, overcoming a 2-1 deficit with a two-run. homer in the seventh inning before driving in a final run with a ninth inning single. Bobby Knoop hit a homer for the Angels and Washington pitcher Phil Ortega drew a warning from Umpire James Odum after one of his pitches grazed the helmet of the next batter, Rick Reichardt.
