COURIER NEWS That Coast Pheenom Figures To be Ready for Rocky Soon By MURRAY OLDERMAN NBA Staff Writer Chillin' Charley Powell, the fabulous San Diego athlete who went from high school to professional football to fighting career and still is only .22, will be definitely ready for Rocky Marciano or anyone else next summer . . .

The Pirates' future isn't as helpless as it looks with young ballplayers like Bob Skinner, Gerry Lynch and Curtis Roberts on the verge of establishing themselves as big leaguers If the Yankees' Bill Skowron had his way, he'd be a third baseman Frank Frisch says Joe Garagiola has been the most entertaining guest this season on his post-game TV show at the Polo Grounds ... If umpires worked according to the book, Johnny Antonelli would be guilty of a balk on every pitch he throws — for lifting his foot off the rubber In the course of his motion . . . Roberts Quits Partner, Loses ecision Red Roberts completely deserted his partner, Butch Boyett, in the third fall of the tag match at Memorial Auditorium last night and as a result Walter Sirois and Charlie Carr won a victory in the main event of the American Legion's wrestling bouts. It all started midway in the second round. Leading one fall to none, Roberts and Boyett fell out when Roberts accused Boyett of hitting him with a broom. Actually what happened was Roberts knocked Referee Virgil Hatfield from the "ring. Hatfield came up with a broom, swatted Red in the seat of his trunks and then hastily threw the broom to Boyett, who .was trying to break it up. Roberts, seeing his partner with the broom, thought he struck the blow, chased him, took the broom and hit him. They exchanged a few blows at the time before Referee Hatfield could separate them. Sirois and Carr, who had watched the scrap from their corner, then went to work on Roberts and Sirois pinned him after 12 minutes with a body slam. Then in the third fall Roberts refused to have anything to do with Boyett. He refused to tag his partner and refused to enter the ring whenever Boyett tagged him. Boyett, who couldn't concentrate on anything but Roberts, was an easy victim for Carr who made him give after four minutes with a crab hold. In the preliminary bouts Sirois defeated Boyett and Roberts won over Carr. There's a possibility that Red Sanders, one' of the last of the single wingers, will desert to the T if the Coast Conference insists on its 1955 spring training ban . . . because, says Red, the supposedly intricate T is simpler to teach than the supposedly simple single wing . . .

Determine the source of water supply, if a deep well, spot the proper location. This is necessary not only for row-irrigation, but an important factor if flumes are to be constructed. 2. A farm survey, which shows the slop*, soils, erosion factors, profile characteristics and land use capabilities. S. A map or plat to show elevations, existing turn-rows and roads, the lateral farm drains and main ditches, designate the farm drains that may be converted into flume* to carry water. Desifnate the points on lateral drains where control structures must be installed to hold water at an elevation determined by surveys and show all other existing features pertinent to drainage or irrigation. With irrigation, adequate drainage becomes of greater importance, water must go in and out. 4. While the irrigation of the entire farm may not be planned at first, the plans should provide for future expansion, insofar as possible. I do not sell irrigation equipment. J. W. Meyer, Civil Engineer Blythtvillt, Ark. Office Phone 2-2261 — Residence 3-8667 Russia Gets Okay On Olympics Team NEW YORK (AP) — As far as Olympic chief Avery Brundage, one of the world's foremost proponents of pure amateurism, is concerned, there is no taint of professionalism among the Russian athletes who will participate in the Olympics. Brundage collected his information first hand during a three-week trip through Russia. He told a news conference yesterday that he had been assured by Russian sports chief Nicolai Romanov that the country's gigantic sports program abides by amateur rules. "And I saw nothing on my trip to make me question this," he said. "Of course, there undoubtedly are some abuses in Russia as there are in all countries. Everywhere in the world I am reminded of American college football scholarships and asked if that is pure amateur sport." He said he presented .Romanov with clippings from American and Western European papers stating that Russian athletes are supported by the state. "Romanov denied any professionalism," Brundage said. "He said Russian athletes must place their education and their jobs ahead of sports. "The main thing about my trip is.that I brought back a statement from the Olympic head in Russia that they believe in the Olympic rules and follow them. Now we have this on record and if we find any abuses, we can go to headquarters," Brundage said that the Russians are not even committed to participate in the 1956 games at Melbourne. Diplomatic relations between Russia and Australia have case. When Brundage asked Ro- manov specificaly about 1956, the Russian merely said: "It is a long way off and many things can happen in between HUNTING CALENDAR Facts May Prove Fish, Wildlife Service Wrong on Our Flyway By THE ARKANSAS GAME AND FISH COMMISSION LITTLE ROCK — In announcing the final regulations on hunting and migratory waterfowl this fall by the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service to the wire services, it is apparent that the Federal Service has completely ignored most of the recommendations made by the states and the Flyway Council. This is rather clearly demonstrated by developments during the past few weeks. In a report submitted to the Com-. fowl biologists agree that the hunt- DOVES SEASON Stpt. 15- Oct. 24, inch DAILY LIMIT RABBITS S«pt. 15- Jan. 31, incl.

Fricano Fined For Bean-Ball But Hurler Asks Harridge for Hearing CHICAGO Ufl — Will Harridge, president of the American League, has fined pitcher Marion Fricano of the Philadelphia Athletics $150 and warned him against "throwing at the batters." Also drawing a fine—$100—was Steve Gromek, Detroit pitcher who tangled with Fricano after being hit in the kidney Sunday by one of Fricano's pitches. Fricano is the hurler who also struck infielder Cass Michaels of the Chicago White Sox on the head with a pitch Friday night. Michaels, who suffered a - fractured skull, is in a Philadelphia hospital. Fricano commented that he'd "like a hearing the next time we are in Chicago. There are two sides to every story and mine hasn't been told." Gromek was fined "for his conduct in charging Fricano which precipitated a brawl," Harridge ed by August 8th, when birds come from the early hatch were able to fly- Broods of the late hatch also started showing up at this time and appeared likely to equal or even exceed the early hatch. On this basis, the report made the following commentary: Present hunting regulations were formulated on information gotten prior to July 25 and did not take into account this large late hatch, which will amount to a- sizeable portion of the mallards coming south this fall from Saskatchewan. "Also ignored in making the regulations was'the increase in total numbers of mallards in the Mississippi Flyway from 1952 to 1954. The 1953 status report of waterfowl (Fish and Wildlife Service) shoves a 78.8% increase in mallards over 1952. The 1954 report shows a 7.3% increase over 1953. This is a total increase of 86.1% in 1954 over 1952. Relaxation Asked "Also, according to Fish and Wildlife Service reports, in 1954 mallards made up 60.2% of the total number of ducks using the Mississippi Flyway. If this species has shown such an appreciable increase the past two years, and when present conditions indicate a near-normal production, why not a relaxation of the stringent regulations imposed on the Mississippi Flyway? "After all, the majority of water-' do give the number of birds estimated killed. '•State agencies, not having access to complete information, cannot determine what percentage of the total population is being taken. The time honored stand-by of the Fish and Wildlife Service that 'the Mississippi Flyway has 40% of the hunters and 20% of the ducks' is wearing thin. "Technicians of the states in the Mississippi Flyway question the accuracy of the kill data was reported by the Fish and Wildlife Service and have asked that a new method be used. "Last year was the first fpr the newly inaugurated Waterfowl Hunter Mail Survey, and it is too early to say "whether this method, will give accurate information. "Starting this year, the states in the Mississippi Flyway will have reliable information as to the number of birds in their particular state. "Each of the 14 states in the Flyway has agreed to fly a bimonthly aerial survey to determine waterfowl numbers and locations. Armed with such information, the states are going to be in a better position to demand regulations equitable to those in the other Flyways." FUR- BEARING ANIMALS Nov. 20- J«n. 20, incl.

Layne Defeats Young Pug Veteran Displays Unusual Stamina WEST JORDAN, Utah ®—Rex Lane, displaying unusual stamina, carried the fight to young Chuck Woodworth of Provo, Utah, for a full 10 rounds last night to win a unanimous decision. Layne weighed 208 to 180 for the former Joplin, Mo., fighter. Wood- ] worth, although considerably outweighed, made a fight of it all the way, with hit and run tactics. There were no knockdowns and neither boxer landed any heavy blows, although Woodworth had several small cuts about the eyes and Layne bled profusely from a' cut on top of his head, received when both fighters ducked at the same instant in the first few seconds of the fight.
