Blytheville's Bruce Bateman, who had a busy afternoon, opened the ninth inning of the nighty with a walk, scampered two bases on passed balls, then scored easily when Jimmy Wagner, the next swinger, flied deep to left-center. Wagner waved :•. magic wand at the plate in both games. In addition to the sacrifice, game- winning . fly, the shortstop cracked a double and single to the second scuffle. In the opener, he uncorked a pair of singles. * * * •Bateman produced a single and double in the first game, was starting pitcher in the second but family gave out in the fourth. - Larry McKinney. relieved pitched shutout ball the rest of the way and took -credit for the win.

See how easy it is to start a column, after being away from the typewriter for two weeks? It's easy when you know who you are and .Why. Most, of all why. When you get that fixed, you don't have to sit staring at a long sheet of blank, endlessly blank paper. Blank paper has a notorious history. .It has driven blank writers—even loaded writers—to drink, to women (the wrong kind of women, I mean), to despair, into spooky cisterns of loneliness and any other kind of ugly fate you can dredge up. You might not earn your living by writing but I feel safely certain you know what it is to have a blank sheet of paper staring back at you. You've been to school, haven't you? You've taken examinations, haven't you? You know what I'm talking about. * * * I've been away, I've returned, and I thank God. And I feel like talking about it. Since this space is normally reserved for an essay of personal opinion and observation, that's exactly what I intend to do. A more sophisticated columnist, I presume, would get right back into the swim, telling what great football seasons the University of Arkansas Razorbacks and Blytheville High Chickasaws are looking ahead to, what kind of world championship thrills await professional wrestling fans at .Legion Arena tomorrow night, that sort of thing, as if the last two weeks hadn't happened at all. I'm a lot of things but I'm not sophisticated. I don't know why but I've always been a bit suspicious of sophistication. * * * I like to tell the reader what I've been up to. Not only do I prefer it that way, I feel a responsibility, too. I feel an unmistakable closeness to the citizens of this community (Blytheville and the other hamlets within circulation earshot). Which is not too unusual, I guess, for an affair that has lasted more than a decade. Too, I have the feeling the affair is not onesided. I come to this conclusion not by any elongation of egotism but by the interchange of letters and notes, telephone calls that have jangled me out of a deep sleep, greetings at games and salutations on the streets, and best of all, the undeserved treasures that came my way the last two weeks in the form of new friendships and the blessed extensions of the old ones. * * * I've been off for a bit of surgery, something I've come to call shotgun surgery, something I was forced into, not by any person but by a physical failure. Not even the doctor forced my hand. All he said is that there was only one solution: "Have it repaired." I replied: "I'm ready." That was on a Thursday afternoon. He saidi "How about Saturday morning?" I said: "O.K." So, that's where my two weeks went *• * * Far as I know, thankfully, just as all the funny get-well cards say, everything came out all right. Yep, they left me in stitches. The problem now is to get back on steady footing again. I know it takes time but I don't care about that. Naturally I'm anxious to get back out to Light Brigade Field and pick up coverage of the American Legion baseball action. Dwight Williams' youngsters have now stacked up 29 victories but I reckon it'll be awhile yet before I can indulge. Dwight and I are in the same boat. He's recovering from surgery, too (of the eye). * •*• . * Among the new friends I acquired the last two weeks were Doctors Hard and Glover, two men to add to the list of mighty medical men in Mississippi County. God bless 'em all. Did you ever spend a million dollars in one week? I did. Or at least that's the value I placed on the nursing and care I received last week while convalescing in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Tinker in Osceola. I don't care who you are or how much money you have, you couldn't possibly have gotten the care that I did last week. * * * So, dear readers, what I've been trying to say is that I missed you and I hope and pray you missed .me. Like I said earlier, it's easy to start a column when you know who you are and why. It's even easier to find a good ending. Thank God.
