Morton Slips But Still Holds Tie In Scoring It was • disastrous weekend for Ottawa's Harry Morton, league • leading scorer in the EKL« as his foot-less rival, Wayne McDonald, a 5-6 guard from Bonner Springs, slipped out of the wigwam into the leaders' circle, or at least for a share of the spotlight. McDonald put together enough fire power on a 22-point effort against the Cyclones, and Morton's 18-point output last Friday, to shove his way uncermoniously into a tie for the lead. Morton slipped to 16.5 while McDonald came on with a 16.5 tally. Over the weekend, Ottawa's fair • haired boy, Morton, had a taste of the lower end of the scoring order for his second venture into the single digit region. His 8-point effort against Rosedale on Saturday was only 3 points higher than his 5 tallies Bowling His First 200 And Just Look! Lewis Turner rolled the best line in his bowling career last night, but it didn't faze his team's opponents. Lewis, who had never hit a 200 line before, rolled a 204 in a 494 series for IOOF No. 24. But the Odd Fellows' foes, the Hubbard Lumbermen, swept alll four points and kept its e^point edge in the men's Brunswick League at the Ottawa Bowl. Helen and Bill's Cafe, with Bill (Wenthe) setting the pace with a 585, swept four from Todd's Mobile Homes to stay in second place. Hubbard's record is 58% - 29 to Helen and Bill's 52-36. R. Crane turned in the best men's performance for Hubbard rolling a 592. Lee's Cafe, on top in the Monday Night Ladies League, gained ground on the Elks Ladies in spite of Maxine Lewis' 506 for the Elks. Lee's beat Nitcher Floor Service, 3-1, to post a 60-28 season mark. The Elks girls lost, 31, to Ottawa Savings & Loan but remained in second place with 51-37.

Impressive Gains In Conservation DENVER (AP)-The president of the National Association of Soil and Water Conservation districts said Monday they scored impressive gains last year throughout the nation. Marion S. Monk Jr. of Batchelor La., told delegates to the group's 17th annual convention that net acreage in districts increased by 23 million. Monk said under the Great Plains program nearly 150,000 acres of unsuitable cropland was converted to permanent grazing and trees in 1962. The Great Plains project was begun five years ago to establish economic stability and sound land use in an area where drought is a continuous hazard. "This program now has accounted for about one-fifth of the needed 12 million acre land conversion in the Great Plains, Monk said. He told the 2,000 soil conversation district supervisors that the number of landowners and operators cooperating with districts applying soil anowater conservation methods totaled 1.9 million at the end of the year. He said that in the watershed program, 21 projects were completed, 109 authorized for planning and 79 approved for operation in the first 11 months of 1962.
