These public hearings are usually preceded by county and district meetings of sportsmen and wild-, life groups and organizations, sol that recommendations can be made from every level and covering all phases of game and fish activities. The annual hearing at Little Rock this year should bring out a record number of participants, since several highly controversial subjects will be on the agenda. Radical changes made during the last year in dewatering lakes for the purpose of fish management should come up for milch discussion. in addition, the commercial fish producers will in all probability make recommendations concerning the sale of game fish, both for restocking purposes and for use In eating places and homes. The outlook still for the windup of the duck season is not too optimistic generally, although Arkansas has a record number of ducks, which run between a million and a half and two million birds at this stage. General rains that would water «mall creeks and slough! and flat areas would immediately make duck hunting available to every duck hunter in the state. During the second deer period in December deer hunters , bagged a total of 2,432 deer. This exceeds last year by approximately 100, and although the over-all kill for the year did not reach last 'year's total due to the big drop during the first period In November, it reprewnts a very satisfactory harvest under existing weather conditions. District 6 again led with 783, closely followed by District 7 with 735. The other District* ail. were closely bunched in the 100 to 250 category.

The 'Rancho Municipal Course was the setting for today's pre lude, a $2,500 pro-amateur celebrity round, and featured in the field were Ben Hogan and the young man who beat him out ol his fifth United States Open crown Jack Fleck. The two were not in the same foursome, however, and Hogan wil not continue in the 72-hole tournament proper. Hogan, his pal Jimmy Demaret: actor Dennis O'Keefe and the tour nament co-sponsor, Bill McDonale Jr., made up one foursome. Fleck, Doug Ford, comedian Phi] Harris and baseball's Del Webb were in another group. Par Is 36-35-71, and most ob. servers think that par 284 for the four rounds will not, prove too difficult for the better golfers. Gene Littler won the 1955 loca open and is a decided threat in this one. Phont'For Free Estimates R. C.

Snead Surprise Of'55GoHTour Cops Vardon CHICAGO -HI - Sam Snead, whose back miseries have plagued him for a number of years, created one of the big surprises of the 1955 golf tour by winning the Vardon Trophy based on average low scoring.

(AP) — The natual rivalry of Paul Brown and Buddy Parker was never more apparent than today as they went about preparing opposing squads for Saturday's Senior Bowl game. Both had the air of men with the will to win. Both have virtually dominated pro football during the past six years. Brown's Cleveland Browns have won six straight divisional titles and three world championships. Parker, although his Detroit Lions fell from the peak this past season, won three divisional championships in five years and two world titles. The major • difference noted in their coaching of the Senior Bowlers was that Brown devoted most of the early practice to individual tutoring of the players while Parker turned more to drills featuring team play. Brown worked his South quarterbacks, Bob Hardy of Kentucky and George Herring of Mississippi Southern, repeatedly on a handoff or pitchout. Parker put his offensive and .defensive units 'together early and turned loose his quarterbacks, Jerry Relchow of Iowa and Jim Haluska of Wisconsin. Both coaches turned largely to pass patterns In yesterday's workout and Relchow and Haluska looked a bit more effective than Hardy and Herring on their aerials.
