The junior BAFB Judo Team Takes Trophies judo team brought back to Blytheville Air Force Base seven trophies out of a possible fifteen. (USAF Photo by Boulanger) Blytheville's junior and adult judo teams rejoiced over their recent victories when they traveled to Vanderbilt University and participated in the Marine Core Shiai held in Nashville, Tenn. The junior judo team brought back to the base seven trophies from a possible 15. Instructor Bill Poole, says that this team could possibly be the best in Arkansas and with the trophies can readily prove his boast, Taking first place honors at the meet in Nashville were Billie Berends and Robert Mullins. Capturing second place trophies Game. Milwaukee weather was expected to be frigid for the game but the warm-weather Rams doubted that would be a factor i in the game's outcome. For one thing, as one Ram put ' it, "it's cold on both sides of the field. I£ my hands are cold, so are my opponent's. If our quarterback can't throw, neither can theirs." For another thing, the Rams | feel the Packers are no more accustomed to cold weather than the California club. "I don't believe the human body evir gets used to cold weather," said a Los Angeles player. "It merely endures it." And, for another thing—the Rams have new shoes. The club recently purchased 40 pairs of custom made ripple soled shoes that allow forward and lateral movement on frozen fields. The Rams tried out the new footwear for the first time Friday, and, said Ram Coach George Allen, "They worked fine. I think the shoes will be to our advantage." THE GOLDEN RULE, according to Vince Lombard!, is in full evidence in these recent NFL action photos. Green Bay's strategy of do unto others before they do unto you is portrayed, top, by Packer guard Jerry Kramer (64) as he whips a crunching block on a rushins Atlanta'Fal- con defender and by linebacker Lee Roy Caffey (60) as he attempts to use Minnesota Vikinff quarterback Joe Kapp M a eork*erew. Kapp managed to keep his head, kowevtr, and he and his mates went on to upsetjhe Pick. iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiwiiiiiiiiiniiniiiniiiiiiiiii' Cage Pros 'W ,. ; iii;ii!mii!iiiiiiiiiii!

It could be a new gun, hunting clothes, outboard motor, boat or fishing gear. Just thinking about an outboard motor, boat or fishing mind poor ole Dagwood who for years and years expected to see one wrapped up under his Christmas tree but for one .reason or another was always disappointed and went through this same ordeal on his birthday or other special occasions. For us who enjoy hunting and fishing, we could symphatize with Dagwood, even though it was a fictional situation, Beiside this, being a family man with many burdens, the poor ole fellow had to eat cold potato sandwiches for lunch. Aside from the traditional giving and receiving, wo know most of our other rewards in life will come from hard and earnest labor and we should nol expect to receive without giving something in return . Maybe this is not the proper time—considering there are so many major problems thoughout the world—to lie Ihinkng of our personal problems concerning the wildlife situation but we must lace the. fact there isn't a personal Santa Claus to provide the much needed hunting, fishing and recreation areas. Vic are going to have to work, plead, beg and demand—and rightfully so—a better solution to our problems. A MERRY WILDLIFE • CHRISTMAS TO ALL! Blytheville Grad Gets Navy Post Cant. J. 0.
