Chicago The second nine holes of Blytheville Country Club's new 18-hole golf course is to open at noon tomorrow. "You won't find a course which is going to be as nice as this one will in communities this size," BCC pro Bob Boyd commented in announcing the opening of the new nine. "Of course, now we'll be open, but we still have a job to do in manicuring the course and making it really enjoyable to play. + * + "Our aim was to have it ready for the July 4 four- ball tournamerit (July 1). "The King Cotton tournament begins July 28 and runs through July 31 and for a change it will be club facilities which limit the player list and not golf course facilities." It has not been a particularly good spring for golf courses and crops, Boyd pointed out. "We're late. About four weeks late, I'd say.

After Burdette broke into the ress now and in a few weeks things will look good out there. AH we needed was this warm weather." * + + A long-range project is the Arkansas Women's Amateur Tournament, to be held here in 19«8, Boyd said, the first tournament of statewide Importance ever played here. The new Id-hole course has three sets of tees-for men, women and championship play. Par is 71. The yardage from the men's tees is 6,400. This can be stretched to around 7,209 by using the championship tees. The course was built under the presidency of Hugh Whitsitt, who has headed the club f«r the past two years. E. B. Gee, Jr., and John Ed Regenold have headed the greens committee during the construction period. J. C. Guard is tournament committee chairman this year. + + + "But we had a lot of help from everyone. I've never seen anything like it. Men sent out their own equipment and labor at no charge. We wouldn't have been able to do it without that kind of help," Boyd said. BCC's green thumb is owned by the Greens' Boyd said. "Cecil, Elmer, Larry and Elmer Charles Green have been working here for from seven to 12 years each. Not many golf courses, even in (he cities, have that kind of experienced help. Recently Sonny Lard has been added." NATIONAL LEAGUE W. L.

Plus FREE DELIVERY On Our OWN TRUCKS Plus FREE Estimate Phis FREE PLAN SERVICE and Financing Sure, $75 is a lot of money for our Royal Master size 8.25-14 tire. And that's with your old tire, no less. Some people don't spend that much for a whole set of tires. But is saving money the first thing you should think of when you buy a tire? Or would you rather know you've got something special on your wheels when you hit a pothole at 70 m.p.h. Or sweep around a rain-slicked curve. . Or pick up a nail at 3 o'clock in the morning. Still and all, $75 is a lot of money for a tire. And maybe you're wondering how much better the new Royal Master could possibly be that we're asking so much for it. Well, to begin with, it's built with more hand labor than you would ever think anybody puts into a tire. Hand labor performed by men who've been build- ing tires for an average of 19 years, It's got a brute of a carcass that's so strong, you can practically forget about blowouts. It's got a special red liner that grips any sharp objects you pick up and helps to block off the air leakage. . And it's got two special traction bars that U.S.- Royal molds into the tread to wipe wet, .slippery roads dry. So when you look at the Royal Master and wonder whether it pays for you to buy such an expensive tire, just remember this. Money doesn't do you any good if you're not around to spend it. Sizes, other than 8,25-M priced accordingly. The new U.S. Royal Master EASY CREDIT TERMS.
