One of our loyal tipsters reported the oilier tiny tlint Jolinie Burnett, executive secret nry of the Avkansiis Athletic As-sociiition, wn. e overheard reminding at one of the sessions of the Little Hock Invitational Golf Tour;uirncnt a couple of weeks ago thut should E, .B. Gee Jr. win any thing Hi the tournament piny he would l>e forfeiting his one remaining year of eligibility nt Hlytlieville High School. At first we couldn't quite figure out just what Mr. Burnett meant, why E. B. would be forfeiting his eligibility while competing in the tourney as an amateur. We felt sure thai our tipster must have been until we got down the association's Uttle red Iwok of regulations and run across this: "If R high school athlete accepts, from any source except the school, a sweater, Jersey or any award whatsoever, he shall therefore be Lookouts Defeat Birmingham 14-11 With Late Rally By tlie Associated Press Tlie nirminghnm Barons blew a chance to take over lirst place in the Southern Association last night when the Chattanooga Lookouts came from way behind to nip them, 14 to 11.

In Richmond PGA Meet The Ark-Mo Kllowatters tightened their grip on first place in the City Softball League standings last night by turning back the Blythe- vllle Motor company Motormen 4 to 2 for their fourth consecutive win. Tlie win left the Kllowatters undefeated In league play and It left them a game and a half ahead of the second-place Sullivan-Nelson nine which has a two and one re-' cord. Only one game was played Rst night. The loss was the second for the Jotormen and It pushed them into him place behind the Chevrolet Boys and Holland who are tied lor econd. The Motormen now have record of two wins and two de- 'eats. Stewart Ourley went the .oute for he Kilowatters allowing only three ills, only one for extra banes. Ted Fisher worked for the Motormen and was tagged for five safeties. The Kllowatters got their runs one at a time scoring single tallies n the first, fourth, fifth and sixth nnings. Both of the Motormen runs came in the sixth on an error, a sf nn hulls hud a single. Pat. nhitmon led the Kllowatters In stick work with two singles In four trips. Canada was the big gun for the Motormen ramming a triple In four trips. Another double header Is scheduled In the league tonight with Sullivan-Nelson slated to meet Owens Drug at 8 o'clock and Phillips Motor meeting Holland at 9:30. Bostonians Read Courier News Want Ada Ineligible." That is Section 14 of the association's code of regulations regarding amateurism. The ru)c Is that blunt. It gives no explanation other than a note htch reads: "This rule shall not be interpreted to prohibit the acccpt- uce of medals, cups or trophies as athletic achievements to partict- nnts In athletic meets or tournament. 1 ! in which three or more schools artlclpntcd and which arc limited to students or to participants in non- ntcrscholnstlc contests open to students and other contestants on equal crms, provided that In either case the awards must be mnde by the ounty, district and state athletic organizations." t There a Difference? Our interpretation of the rule Is that had E. B. placed in the tour- lament he could not have accepted a tropliy or other award until after ils graduation from high school or his high school eligibility had been ompleted. without endangering his amuteur status unless the tournament In which he was competing had been sanctioned by the AAA and he awards made by the county, district or state athletic associations. What we can't understand about the rule is what difference It makes who sponsors the tournament or who furnishes the awards. Docs a silver trophy given by the Little Rack Country Club for athletic achievement In a tournament change an athlete's amateur status any more than one of the same price given by the AAA? Or does a tournament sponsored by the Podunk Boy's Club where amateurs play strictly for medals and trophies, constitute any more of a Breach of the laws of amateurism than one sponsored by the state, county or district Athletic Associations provided that the participant's status as a non-professional Is respected? The wording of the rule makes it sound a trifle unfair to say the least. Unfair to young athletes who, like E. B., have a chance of some day making a name for themselves in sports that are given very littli emphasis by the state school system. , Golf, for example, is not even a secondary sport in the majority o the schools in Arkansas. The AAA sponsors a state high school gol tournament each year, it's true, but in order for a lad to set his gam In good enough shape to compete In the tournament lie must depend 01 the facilities of his home town country club for practice at his owi expense. the plate hlnvilf to break a 3 and 3 tie. Jim Atkins was credited with the victory. Neil Saulla was the loser. The Mobile Bears suffered their sixth straight loss at the hands of Inrvln Hotblatt and the Memphis Chicks, who whipped them 9 to 1.

So, local tournaments and the awards that go with them are naturally a big interest to' him. They furnish him with plenty of competition and help him learn the line points of being a good competitor. The only reason we can see for such a rule is to discourage tlie awarding of expensive gifts and presents to high school athletes by non- scholasttc organizations which is all well and good but why not re-write the regulation to that effect or else sot a maximum price thai can be paid for awards given by nn outsider?
