TO PEEK AT THE CHICKS? Tonight By ED HAYES, Sports Editor Football fans are invited to sit in on Blytheville High's Haley Field football scrlmm»g« tonight. Spectators are asked to bring a bar of soap-Brand X will be just fme-for ad- n " S First game for the Chickasaws is a week from tonight at Helena.

Cornered last night, Bob Williams said he was not prepared to issue a roster by positions yet. "We're going to give out jerseys tomorrow night," he said. Not Quite Enough Beans to Go Around Third step in the "opening" of the BHS grid season took place last night (light workouts and all-out practices were first) when the Chickasaw Athletic Club presented its annual kickoff barbecue at Walker Park. About 400 dinners were served. Guest speaker was Bennie Ellender, successful football coach at Arkansas State College. Other A-State coaches present were Don Floyd, John Rose, former BHS grid coach Bill Templeton, and athletic director J. A. (Ike) Tomlinson. The Blytheville coaches were there also: Bob Williams, Dwight Williams, BUI McFarland, Alan Stolt, Fred Mitchell, Jack Goodmsn and Jim Dixon. * * * J. K.

(Courier News Photo) BRANDT KNOCKS DOWN BUGS Donnie K Scores By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer When the Philadelphia Phillies talk about flakes, they don't mean the breakfast variety. Jackie Brandt, Philadelphia's journeyman outfielder, is the Phillies' own personal one-man show. He was one man too many for the Pittsburgh Pirates 1 Thursday night, Brandt drove in two runs with a single and double as the Phillies downed Pittsburgh 4-1 behind Jim Bunning's eight-hitter. The defeat dropped the Pirates into second place in the National League, one-half game behind the idle San Francisco Giants. * * * In baseball parlance, a flalie is an off-beat player who is somewhat eccentric. Brandt fills the bill perfectly. Take the ice cream incident in spring training, for example. Brandt and a teammate decided they'd like a snack after dinner. "Okay," said the teammate, "there's an ice down the block." cream place "No, no," insisted Brandt. "I want to place." That was fine with Brandt's teammate except that flie 28- flavor spot was 30 miles away. But Brandt won the argument and the teammates took the ride. When they reached their destination, the other player ordered something scrumptious — the kind of treat you'd find in a 2(Mlavor spot. And Brandt? "I'll take vanilla," he deadpanned. Now that's a flake. * * ' * The Pirates didn't think he was very funny though. His fourth-inning double brought Dick Groat home with Philadelphia's second run of Sie inning. Johnny Callison had singled and scored on Groat's double. In the sixth, Richie Allen singled, moved up on a sacrifice, and rode home on Brandt's second hit of the night. In the only other National League game played Thursday, Chicago nipped New York 3-2. * * * The Cubs beat the Mets in the ninth inning for the second straight day when Don Kessinfr er scored the winning run on rookie Bill Kepler's wild pitch. Kessinger and Glenn Beckert had opened the ninth with singles. After Billy Williams fouled out, Ron Santo walked, filling the bases. Then the first pitch to Ernie Banks was"wild, allowing Kessinger to score. John Boccabella and Byron Browne slammed home runs for the Cubs while Larry Elliot connected for New York. ville people who talked were Bill Wyatt and Mayor Jimmie Edwards. Ellender gave a boost to the boosters, both the A- State and BHS supporters, saying: "We couldn't function without "em." The coach said he had a "miserable 2-6 year" in his first season at A-State. The Indians advanced to 7-0-2 the following year and then were 6-3 in 1965. "We beat the alumni 34-8 this year," he pointed out, "so we're off to a good start." Ellender lauded the work of ex-Chickasaw Dick Hitch- ey. The Indians intercepted 17 passes and Dick accounted for eight. "That's good in any league," Bennie said. * * * The shiny-headed coach directed most of his talk to the football Chickasaws, capping his message with the advise that they must develop a will to win. He said there's value simply in participation . but there's more to it than that. "Any time a score is kept, it matters more than just how you play the game. "It matters if you win or lose." The BHS pep band, furnished by Bob Lipscomb, offered some outstanding eat- out music. "I don't think I've ever heard the band play better," Bob Dean said. All in all, a fine feast. For the mosquitoes, too. iiiniiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Fights Junie Enters World Semifinals COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo, (AP)T-Waltir (J«nle) Dwell of wamut Ridge, Ark., edged.

Site of the competition is Jesse Coalter's Clearpool at Walker Park. The meet is primarily for boy scouts and YMCA members but independents were permitted—and encouraged— to enter. The age groups are 10-13; and 14-16. Dr. Jack Webb is sponsor. ^iniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiioiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiaiiiiiiiiiiw It took Denny five tries to win his 14th and five more before he got number 15 Thursday. The fact that it came on such a sharp performance has to give McLain and the Tigers hope that he's ready to resume his leading-man role. * * * Boudreau, on the other hand, may find that his hours behind his projector are going to increase. As McLain explains it, whenever he and his wife, Sharyn, who is Boudreau's "If I've seen that film once," said McLain, I've seen it a thousand times. I'm just glad I didn't have to pitch to that man. Boy, was he tough." The Chicago batters were anything but tough Wednesday, though. Only Ken Berry, with a double in the fourth, and Jerry Adair, who beat out a single in the eighth, managed hits. The Tigers, though, started hitting early. They got three runs in the first inning, two in the second and, to round things out, three more on a Dick McAuliffe homer in the fifth. In other American League games, California beat New York, 5-1, Baltimore took Cleveland 4-3 in 11 innings and Boston won a doubleheader from Kansas City, 8-6 and 4-1. * * * McLain, who struck out nine Thursday, is now 15-11 for the season.
