And the principals include three professional heavyweight wrestlers who haven't been around the local scene for awhile. On the one end of the card are Tojo Yamamoto and Tamaya Solo, a pair of Japanese wrestlers who lead here in the boos-and-jeers parade. It's been some time since they have made an appearance in Blytheville. Both men are powerful and know all the tricks. Billy Wicks, popular young heavyweight, hasn't heard the roar of the crowd at the Arena, either, for awhile. He can be counted on to stage a good show. His partner is Dynamite Laye. The main event has an hour time limit, best-of-three. In the 8:30 opener, Dwayne Peale is booked against Chin Lee. Lee, seen on television quite often, usually with Luke Graham as a partner, is not as big as Luke but can match him in power and wits. This one is bcst-of-three also, 60 minutes or less. Admissions are 75 cents for adults, 25 cents for children. Reserved seats may be purchased inside the Arena. Herb Welch, Blytheville promoter, shares the tag team world championship with Al Costello.

Midget League game, which required just a little over one hour to play. Jaguars got the jump by scoring one run in the first frame. They threatened again in the second, but were cut down by good defensive work. Single runs in. the .third and fourth innnings finished the Jaguar scoring and they'went into the sixth leading 3 - Q : Twins developed their only threat in the sixth when they pushed across their marker without a hit. They had only three safeties off Jaguar hurling, While the latter showed five hits off three Twin tossers.

Some of the drownings appeared to have been results of heart attacks, but most are caused by sheer carelessness. Only recently two persons drowned in White River by anchoring the stern intead of the bow in swift water. Another fisherman, attempting to. exchange seats in a moving boat, capsized the boat and drowned. Two weekends ago a father and his four-year-old son were fishing in Lake Beaver Fork. The lot fell in. The father also drowned when he attempted to save his son, who was not wearing a life preserver. * * * In 1964 nine sportsmen were reported drowned in Arkansas waters, and 12 accident reports were filled with the G&FC. The boating laws require that "in case of collision, accident, or other casualty involving a vessel, the operator will—if the collision, accident, or other casualty results in death or injury to a person or damage to property in excess of $100— file with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission" a full description and account of the mishap. Last year 23 boating accident reports were filed with the G&FC, with 20 deaths reported. * . . * * Water enthusiasts can avoid these means of possible tragedy—standing in a moving boat, motoring too closely to a dam, overloading boats, failure to provide or to wear life preservers, lack or running lights for nightime operation of . boats, drinking intoxicants, while on the water, and poor seamanship or knowledge of operation of watercraft. Seven reports of boat eolllaloni were tiled last year, with two persons killed and property damage of »1,850. The two killed were occupants of a party barge struck by a ski boat. The Commission urges water enthusiasts to enjoy them- wives without taking a holiday fremrapoosibiUly. All Is Quiet On Pro Grid Front y THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Despite continued small-arms ire in pro football's hot-and old war, editorial observers nticipate an imminent truce — nd eventual accord — between le rival American arid National eagues. Reports persist that the AFL s taking retaliatory measures or the signing of Buffalo place- cicker Pete Gogolak by New York Giants the last termination. * *' * The New York Times said the rival leagues are holding "secret peace talks" and that there were hopes for "an agreement, probably in the form of a common draft, within a week." But the Times story, under Frank Litsky's byline, quoted Davis as calling the report "speculation and conjecture. It is very doubtful anything will be done." "The latest of the pro football feuds which erupted when the New York Giants signed Pete Gogolak . . . will very likely be the last," wrote Oliver E. Kuechie, sports editor of the Milwaukee Journal, Monday. 'Peace is inevitable," Kuechie concluded, "not as a unilateral benefit to either of the leagues but as a mutual benefit." "Most pro football fans want the. war to end before the game as a whole is seriously damaged," Chet Nelson, sports editor of the Rocky Mountain News, reported. "Players jumping back and fourth and making outrageous demands eventually would bring a deterioration. "Peace, negotiated or otherwise, would be wonderful." » * * Joe McGuff, sports editor of the Kansas City Star, said the American League has gone on the offensive against the more established NFL for the first time but discounted reports that he signing of Gogolak by the Giants marked the beginning of I AFL's top defensive linemen, a mass player raid against the | played out their options with !San Diego last season — as did ' Gogolak with Buffalo — and are legally free to sign with a club n the other league. The Bears AFL. "Obviously, this is not the case," McGut'f wrote. "The Giants apparently acted on their own and against the wishes of a majority of the other owners. It is significant that the Chicago Bears have made no effort lo sign Ernie Ladd and the (Detroit) Lions have not moved to sign Earl Faison. "It now appears that the AFL will try to sign enough NFL players to make the rival league pay for taking Gogolak, but the AFL probably will not go so far as lo precipitate an auu-out war." * + * Ladd and Faison, two of the MAJOR LEAGUE STANDINGS NATIONAL LEAGUE San Fran. .• OS Angeles ittsburgh .
