Colorado, a member of the Big Eight conference, was named Monday as one of the teams in the football classic which 1 is played in the 70,000-seat Rice University stadium. The Buffaloes have a 7-2 record with one game remaining against Air Force. "We have'a chance to name the other team today," said Lou Hassell, chairman of the'Blue- bonnett selection committee.

Kansas defeated Rice, 33-7, in 1961, and Missouri defeated Georgia Tech, 14-10, in 1962. Hassell said television was the main reason the .Bluebonnet chose the fourth Saturday in December this year instead of the third Saturday, as in the past. "Our contract with ABC this year jumps from $125,000 to $175,000," he said. "ABC didn't want a conflict with pro football, and the date was set before the pro football merger.

This may be one of better seasons for area duck hunters. (Courier News Photo) Duck Hunters Set For Season Start LITTLE ROCK — Deerhunters taking part in the state's two- day deer hunt next Friday and Saturday, Nov. 24-25, will have to leave Ole Bullet at home. No dogs will be allowed in the woods during those two days, when it will be hunter choice in bagging' deer in most parts of the state. While most areas are,open to the taking of either buck or doe deer, the areas permitting bucks only to be harvested include Management Unit 12,15, and 16. Unit 12 takes in most of Pulaski County and portions of adjoining counties. Units 15 and 16 take in most of Polk, Montgomery, Pike, Howard, Clark, Hempstead, Little River, Sevier, and portions of Yell, Scott, Nevada, and Miller counties, all in the SW portion of the slate. Only hunters with permits will be allowed to enter the public shooting grounds at Dagmar, Wattensaw, Hurricane Lake, and Bayoir de View. ...Hunters are reminded that the individual quota is two deer per hunting year, and only one kill may be made per,hunting period. . In other words, once the second deer tag is used, that hunter's deer hunting is concluded. A good earth-soaking rain with runoff is needed between now and Wednesday, opening day of the duck season, for an adequate amount of surface water that makes for good duck hunt- but those dependent upon rainfall are short of the full mark. Thousands of ducks have already entered the state, and lots more are coming. A good rain would probably result in a good opening day hunt. Yesterday opened the fur- bearing season. The season will extend through Feb. 28. Also opening during the week will be the special two-day deer hunts at the White River National Wildlife Refuge on Nov. 21-22 and Nov. 24-25. Only hunters with permits will be per- ing. In some areas of the state the water supply is sufficient, but it is critical in others. Some public-owned shooting grounds haye been flooded fully, | milled to enter the refuge, and The Winner There were three entries that missed on four games in last week's football contest. Mike Long came out on top with his Blytheville - Jacksonville pick. Mike picked the score of the game' to' be Jacksonville 11- Blytheville 6. . . The final outcome of the game was Jacksonville 14 - Blytheville 0. ...... Richard Brewer of Blytheville and Dorothy Ray of Osceola were the other two entries who missed on 4. Richard's game pick was Jacksonville 27-Blytheville 13. Dorothy Ray picked the score to be Jacksonville 20 - Blytheville 6.

The Bluebonnet has no official link with the Southwest Conference but has sought, when possible, to obtain the runnerup from the group whose champion is pledged to the Cotton Bowl. However, three of the contests Since the bowl was established in 1959 were played without Southwest Conference representatives.
