The victory was the sixth straight without a loss for Roxana, giving them the best seasbn mark in the area and putting them up with the leaders in the state in winning streaks. The game was typical of the p LA . YER M £Jj other eight played by the teams _wood m«r «i> since they started the series in 1947, and gave Roxana a 3-2 edge in victories with four games ending in ties. In the nine contests played so far, only once was their a difference of more than one touchdown In the final score. The close- est one that did not end in a dead heat came last year at Wood River, when the Oilers won 2-0 on a safety. Ironically enough, hi view of the fact that Roxana is not noted for its passing attack, it was an aerial that put the Shell* in position for the only scow in this year's game. With the ball on the Wood River 27, quarterback Bob Durham faded back and flipped a screen pass to halfback Howard Heffner, who missed the last two games because of a knee injury and was considered a doubtful starter in this contest. Heffner scooted to the right and picked his way down to the Otter two-yard line before he was brought down on the last play of the third period. H. A. Walmsley, 210-pound fullback, crashed over from the two on the first play of the final period. Hii kick lor extra point was wide. Coach Orivell Yocum's charges then looked as if they would begin to move on the first play after the Roxana kickoff following the touchdown. Quarterback Jim Rhodes picked up 10 yards down the middle for the first and only Oiler first down gained on the ground. A penalty helped Wood River to a first and 10 in the .second period, . and a pass gave the Oilers the ; other near the end of the final stanza. Bill after the gain by Rhodes, John Bosco was dropped five yards behind the line by Dale Dickerson, putting the ball on the Oiler 20. A third down pass by Rhodes was broken up by Bob Stewart, and Wood River was forced to kick. The Oilers got the ball again on their own 27 in the final three minutes of the game. Rhodes pick ed up two yards, and Jim Yates went around right end for four more behind a spread formation. Rhodes picked up the first down with * six-yard toss to Howard Miller. Rhodes moved the ball up to the Oiler 39 with a three-yard plunge, but there was a fumble on the, next play and Dickerson recovered for the Shells. Roxana killed the remaining two minutes with three plays before the final whistle blew. Roxana's spirited defensive line made the difference. The front wall repeatedly dropped the Oiler backs for losses before they coulc get going, and forced Rhodes to hurry his passes. Wood River picked up only 45 yards on the ground and was thrown for 37 yards worth of losses for a net gain of eighl yards. The Wood River defensive unil also played well, holding Roxana to 99 yards on the ground, the least amount the Shells have gained on the ground this season. Coach Earl McLane's crew picked up 81 yards in the air as Durham completed three of his six passes. In addition to the pass that set up the tally, Durham threw to Giddings for 21 yards in the firs- period, and to Steward for 35 yards in the second quarter. The Shells got as far as the Oil er 22 on a first period drive but had to give up the ball on downs They got down to the 14 again before the period ended, but a sta tue of liberty play on fourth down failed. . The Oilers could not get going as the second period started, with two consecutive backfield fumbles costing them nine yards and fore ing them to kick. A fine punt return by Giddings started the Shells goalward mid way throught the third period. The halfback took Rhodes' kick on his own 14 and carried 30 yards down the right sideline, getting good blocks all the way, before being stopped on his own 44 by Lou Pope lar. Some 2,000 fans in attendance stayed until the last play was over, with the Roxana contingent buzzing about the chances of repeating the undefeated season of 1954. Roxana plays at Edwardsville next week, then ,takes on Civic Memorial and Jerseyville at home. It was the fourth defeat in six outings for Wood River. The Oil' lers entertain Harrisburg Friday night, travel to Jerseyville the following week, then close out against Granite City at home Nov. 9.

River Ripples * Roamin' the Piasa Country Harold Brand* JFleld Trial Viewpoint A Put-and-Take pheasant field trial scheduled earlier this month on the Lee Volla farm near Fillmore, HI., attracted a large number of hunters and bird dog owners, according to Jesse Edwards, 269 Herbert St. The event was sponsored by the Illinois Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs, of which Edwards is the Put-and-take trial chairman. His viewpoints on the trial are as follows: "Pen-reared birds were released by a conservation agent," Edwards pointed out. "Hunters paid $6 and were allowed to bag two birds while the dog owner paid an entry fee of $1. The pheasants cost $3 each-and four were placed afield at a time so two hunters led by a bird dog could seek them. Reports are that about 50 per cent of the birds escaped. "The average loss for the hunters on each placement of birds was $5. The costs for the sponsoring club was 10 cents a band for the birds, pay and dinner tor the judges and rent for the field trial headquarters, Unless a club can afford these costs, it will result in few field trials, especially by the same club. And of course, -few hunters would be interested ii) paying for birds they didn't get. Behind (he Times "To encourage dog owners, the trial should be recognized by the Amateur Field Trial Clubs of America," continued Edwards, who is also field trial chairman for the Piasa Pointers and Setters Club. "The dog owners will pay from $6"up to $10 entry fee and the additional sum would enable the trial sponsoring club to break even, or even earn money. "We are about five years behind on the trials as 'it is. In 1952, as a member of both the Piasa Club and o{ the" Alton- Wood River Sportsmen's Club, I tried to get the latter to support an Amateur Field Trial recognized event without suc- cess'because it Is to big an W- PICKS UP FIRST DOWN—Roxana's Howard Heffner is brought down by Jim Rhodes of Wood River at midfield but not before picking up the necessary three yards for a first down in the third period at Roxana Friday night. The Shells added two more first downs in a drive that resulted in the winning touchdown early in the next quarter, giving Roxana a 6-0 win.—Don Hayes Photo. dertaking for smaller clubs." Change* Needed "Then came the big deal of controlled shooting for wealthy sportsmen. But through the combined efforts of a limited few it is now possible for the average man to shoot at a moderate fee if clubs can afford to sponsor Put-and-Take field trials. "Here is why I think that a lot of changes will be needed We have one game warden in the county who must be present to band the bird at a Put-and- Take trial. Why? We have the bird and the band. We can harvest as many as we can pay for, Furthermore, pen-reared pheasants can be sold for food consumption, without distinction how the bird's life is ended. "Also, if more than one Put- and-Take trial is scheduled in the county at the same time, it isn't likely that the state will grant a permit. Therefore the trial is still controlled and not what it appears to be. Duck Hunters Favored "The chance for the upland game hunter to get anything for his money except to buy licenses and pay the bill for duck hunters isn't fair, 1 Edwards continued." And it is the duck hunter who screams and fights until he i gets it all while other hunters j fail to get even the crumbs. "Yes, you let me place my duck blind where I don't have to go through the checking area and I'll keep still," Edwards added. "Could it be that the Pittman - Robertson funds of which Illinois received $600,000, divided two thirds for migratory fowl and one third for fishing, was to appease duck hunters while food for wildlife was planted along the river bottoms and timber was sold from the islands, destroying habitat which be. longed to the public?" Edwards is a strong*supporter for the upland game hunter who ha* less and less every year to look forward to. Put-and-Take field trials for all sportsmen at a nominal fee is one way to benefit the upland game hunter, jg his belief, BETHALTO — Civic Memorial had little trouble from Southwestern of Medora, and walked off with a 31-0 victory, the fourth in six starts for the Eagles, here Friday night. The Bethalto team overwhelmed the green Piasa Birds, rolling up 17 first downs to four arid piling up 396 yards rushing and 116 in the air for a total of 512 yards. Southwestern was held to less than 100 yards. Quarterback Mike Mead completed eight of 16 pass attempts, two going for touchdowns. The Eagles of Coach VaUie Robinson scored in every period, with Ron Autery starting the parade with a five-yard plunge in the first quarter. Joe Haar went four yards for the second peri6d tally. Both of Mead's six-point tosses came in the third stanza. The first was a 10-yard flip to Junior White out to the flat, the halfback traveling Die remaining 40 yards to pay dirt. The other was a 26-yard toss to Dave Kassing. Mead passed to Jack Byers for the extra point after Kassing's tally. Two other Eagle touchdowns were called back in the third period. Jerry Dale finished the scoring with a 15-yard dash in the final period. Robinson started an all-junior backfield, with Mead the only starter in previous games this season. Autery, normally a halfback, started at fullback, with Dale and Haar getting the halfback assign^ ments. Another change saw tackle Jerry Pelan at center for injured Jim Hawkins. Bethalto plays at Western Military Academy Saturday afternoon, then closes out with two conference opponents, Roxana on the road and Dupo at home.

Detroit leads the Western Con ference, also unbeaten in three games, and a tie could develop in that division, too. It would re quire a San Francisco victory over the Lions at Detroit, couplet with a victory by the Bears over the Baltimore Colts at Chicago The Bears are 2-1. The 49ers, however, don't look like the team to stop Detroit right now, while the second place Bears are favored over Baltimore in spite of an early season win. by the Colts over Chicago, 28-21. The Cardinals, sparked by rambling Ollie Matson, and the Eagles are even money. Chicago trounced Washington's winless Redskins last week, 31 - 3, while Bobby Thomason's passes helped down the Pittsburgh Steelers, 35-21. New York, which whipped the de fending champion Cleve land Browns 21-9 when Alex Webster scored three touchdowns, is the choice over the Steelers in their game at Yankee Stadium. Wins by both Philadelphia and New York would leave the Cards Eagles and Giants all wrapped up in a 3-1 knot at the top of the heap. In other games, the Browns are favored over the Redskins a Washington, with Los Angeles the choice over the Green Bay Pack ers at Milwaukee. Green Bay won its first game last week, beating Baltimore 3833, while the Rams were losing to Detroit, 24-21. The Bears thump ed the 49ers 31-7. There will be no electronics from now on.

Jerseyville Takes 27-7 Victory Over Pittsf ield PITTS FI ELD — Jerseyville shook off a two-game losing streak with a satisfying- 27-7 victory over arch rival Pittsfield here Friday night. The same two teams have been battling it out for the Illinois Valley Conference title for the past several years, but this season both have dropped from the league and are playing as independents. They fought to a 0-0 deadlock last season and shared the crown. The Panthers of Coach Joe Jurkanin are now 4-2 for the season, with home games against Mt. Olive and Wood River coming up in succession. JerseyviUe will end the campaign at Roxana Nov. 9. The Panthers scored once in every period, with reserve halfback Ron Ferguson getting two ol the tallies while on the receiving end of passes by Doug Anderson.

Tigers Come From Behind Despite Costly Fumbles MADISON — Edwardsville had come from behind all the way,' ut matched touchdowns with dadison for a 20-20 tie here Fri- ay night. Each team scored in the first, econd and fourth periods, with ie Trojan tally coming first on ach occasion. The Tigers of Coach Bennie sselhardt dug their own hole •vith two fumbles leading direct- y to Madison touchdowns. The first bobble led to the open- ng score of the game, after the iger defenders had stopped a 0-yard Madison drive on their \vn 13. On the second Edwards- ille play from scrimmage, Jim handler and Flem Bradshaw ould not get together on a pitch- ut on the option play. Bradshaw was not able to hang n to the low pass, and Madison md Bill Papa plucked the ball lut of the air and raced 13 yards across the goal line. Larry Ferguson added the extra point. The Bengals got the touchdown iack before the period ended with Chandler throwing to Buz Shaw or the final 22 yards after a lownfield march. But the extra joint, which was to make a big difference later, failed. Ferguson, snaky Madison jun- or halfback, scored in the second period on a pass from Quarter- jack Dewayne Jolly. Jolly faked a jump pass over the center of the line, turned and pitched a short flat pass to Ferguson, and the speedster dashed 24 yards unmolested. Shis time the Tro- ans failed to make the extra point, enabling the Tigers to tie t up before the half ended. And they did just that, Chandler leading another downfielc drive and finally going over from the one. Bradshaw added the point on a run. With each team either scoring or getting deep into opposition territory each time it had possession, there were no punts in the entire first half.

Coach Francis Dant's charges received help again in the fourth period as they went ahead 20-13. Again on the option play, Chandler pitched to Glen Howerton, who took two strides with the ball and was hit. He fumbled as he went down, and Ferguson picked up the ball on a bounce and sprinted 48 yards into the end zone. The ever-present Ferguson added the big extra point again on * run. But the Tigers refused to quit, and came back to tie it up before the final whistle. After a< 65-yard march, Shaw carried over from the three with less than four minutes left to play. Bradshaw matched Ferguson's efforts, and carried his second extra point, the tying one, across the goal line. Edwardsville got down to the Madison 20 again before a Chandler pass was intercepted on the final play of the game. The Tigers are now 4-1-1 for the season, with a home game against Roxana on tap for next week.
