PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8,-198« Chickasaws in Battle at Border Town THE BLYTHEVILLE HIGH CHICKASAWS rowed out o. Blvtheville yesterday morning for the dry sunny weather (they hope) of the Texas-Arkansas border. Pin-pointing the target Texarkana Arkansas. .Mission: two Big Eight basketball game: with the Razorbacks tonight and tomorrow night. Radio station KLCK manager Harold Sudbury closed the deal late yesterday afternoon that wiU bring play-by-play descriptions of botli contest's into this city. Starting time tonight on KLCN-FM is 7:3!). The Chickasaws' record in the tonference is now 2-5. The Little Rock Tijers were the last team to trip them. They did it Saturday ni£)H at Little Rock, 59-52. In all games this season, the Chicks stand on the O.K. side of the ledger at 8-5. Most recent win was a thrilling last-split-second triumph over traditionally - tough Leachville, 57-56, on Jan. 17. MONDAY AFTERNOON, while the poor Saturday effort at Rock was still wet-paint on Coach Jimmy Fisher's brain, the Tribe held a"still, locked-doors practice session at the Haley Field Gym headquarters. What went on inside the memory-coated wails would make excellent reading; material but unfortunately the press was also locked out Fisher didnt reveal all the sweat- zession accomplished but if nothing else he did succeed in slicing exactly 10 pounds from the frame of rugged forward Charles Abbott Abbott needed both the work »nd the loss. He failed to make a field icoal against the Tigers. Little Freddy Akers was one of the high-pointers in that outing with only 10 points. Jimmy Bratcher who started in place of Bobby Jones also collected 10. Jones made nine points, seven on cozy free flips. BiUy Daniels, unfortunately, only tallied twice. It was predicted that If he failed to crack the 100- point club (Including all games played this year) the Chickasaws would return from Little Rock with Bl? Eight defeat pinned to their shoulders. And that's right where 1 the littl* monkey was riding. Actually Bill> only needed six points to enter tJi century club. COACH FISHER'S bench boys re ceived more attention in scrim' mages this week also after the! surprising play against the Tigers. Fisher substituted an entire new team in the second quarter following the front-line Chicks' inability to hit more than one field coal in the frst eight minutes of play. Reserves Davd Holt and Robert White turned in exceptionally fine performances. It's expected they'll see starting action tonight, or at least more action than they've participated in recently. jimmy Fisher also planned to slow down his attack. "If we can't get a big jump on them with our. fast break," ne said, "we'll play it slow and sure, setting up plays carefully, making every shot count." The amazing flop of the local team in the Big Eight is confusing to the personable coach when he realizes what a collection of set-shot artists he really has. Why they haven't connected in the important games is an italicized question mark. But the boys have six more loop scraps to go yet and they, still have a fine chance of finishing in a respectable slot. The team itinerary listed the squad as stopping off for the night in Arkadelphia before coming Into Texarkana today. The Chicks meet El Dorado at. Haley Gym next Thursday and Friday nights. First Hunter in M odern Times Killed by Bow and Arrow By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A hunter is shot and killed in North Dakota, and a remarkable safety record falls. Not just for North Dakota, but for the whole nation. And not for hunting in general, because more than 1,000 hunters are wounded annually and more than 200 killed by firearms just in the 24 states that cooperate in the uniform hunter casualty report. By Max Garcia, wounded fatally In the woods near Hazen, N. D., last Oct. 8 was the first hunter In modern times to be killed by a bow and arrow. The bowhunters, who date their modern activities from 1934 when the first special bow hunting season on big game was set In Wisconsin, have been proud of their record. Carl Hlubert, editor of the Na- tional Bowhunter magazine, estimates there were 200,000 licensed bowhunters afield last season, most of them for many days each and moth of them after big game. In 21 years, several million archers have taken their weapons afield, from coast to coast. Yet not only was Garcia's death the first fatality recorded, but lesser casualties are few. Garcia was hit in a ireak accident, Hulbert reports. He had been stalking a deer with another hunter and took his place on a stand while the other hunter circled. Garcia then left his stand and moved in on the circle. The hunter stalked close to the deer, which was standing on the top of a ridge.

Sailer already has won the men's giant slalom and slalom, and the downhill is still to come. No one here doubts he's the greatest skier in the world. Best team performance — Russia's skaters, who broke records in the 500, 1,500 and 5.000 meter When he shot, the arrow contin- past the deer over the hill and hit Garcia, in the woods about 60 yards downhill. Sports Roundup f aute Nashua Gets Cards, Letters MIAMI, Fla. (AP) — As his elderly trainer Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons says, Nashua proba bly is the most popular horse that ever lived. The great bay speedster, sharpening up for his 4-year-old season, receives scores of letters and greeting cards from his admirers, though no claim is made that he can read them. ' "I try to answer all of them, " t Swaps in that race? Beat Swaps said Fitz, who truly loves the colt. "I think maybe his great popularity comes from that match race with Swaps. Millions must have seen him win that one on television." An early morning: visitor to Nashua's living quarters — a young Presbyterian minister, as a matter of fact— agreed that the victory over the Kentucky Derby winner had indeed been an inspiring spectacle, wha t he said, Nashua's trainer, in the world happened to "What happened to him?" ejaculated Fitz. "All that happened to him was that he got beat by my horse. I know they said later that something was wrong with one 01 his hoofs, but if that was it it must have happened after the first mile. There must not have been much mile, much faster mile than they did tht day." It is evident that Fitz and all wrong with Swaps for because they don't run the others around Nashua set great store by the result of the two-horse test at Chicago last summer, feeling that their animal's decisive six and one-half length triumph in that one settled all arguments. "None of us had any doubt that Mick Nashua's nickname) woulc run away from that Coast horse if they met again," said a stable hand. "Did you know that Swaps' rider Willie Shoemaker) wanted to split the -jockey's .purse of S1Q.OOO, but that Eddie Arcaro refused before the race to agree? races. Best Comeback Best comeback — Scandinavia's cross-country skiers, who proved the Russians can be beaten in three events In which the Soviets were touted 'to win. After the world championships two years ago most winter sports experts thought the Scandinavians traditional domination of cross country was at an end. Biggest disappointment — U. S. team outside its figure skaters and hockey .team. Most of the American downhill and cross-country performers would not even ha\*2 won a place on a European team. If the United States is to polish its tarnished reputation in winter sports, a whole new crop of athletes must emerge before the next games at Squaw Valley, Calif., in 1960. WHAT GOES UP never seems to'come down when Bill Russell of San Francisco bounces around. At left, Russell starts wheeling for a pivot shot as California defender goes up with him. Center, Russell still is climbing as his opponent starts to come down. And at right, he's all alone, head and shoulders over the rest, as he follows through. Hogs, Sneaky Winners, SMU Clash Saturday By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The pressure will be on Arkansas and the odds on Southern Methodist when the two titans of the Southwest Conference clash at Fayetteville Saturday night, with undisputed first place in the scramble for the league basketball championship on the line. Arkansas escaped from Texas Christian with a 74-72 triumph last night when a tremendous surge by the Horned Frogs was stopped by the clock. The Razorbacks now have five victories without a defeat. The record matches that of Southern Methodist, who whipped the same TCU ball club last week 105-64 in an astonishing display of offensive skill. Hogs at Home SMU will enter Saturday's game on the Razorbacks' court with a far better season record, 13-2, a national ranking of 17th, and a previous decision over the Porkers. In the only meeting of the teams this season, the Ponies downed Arkansas 67-62. Added to the .advantage of playing at home, Arkansas will have an added incentive of knowing it can match in victories the 7-game osing streak with which it opened the season. That string of defeats is tile longest ever suffered by a Razorbacks team since basketball became a varsity sport at the uni- | versity 34 years ago. A victor over SMU also would even at the season record of the Porkers. In registering their sixth consec utive victory last night, the Hog again got double-figure scoring per formance from four'starters, an checked their opponent's ace wit their tight zone defense. Fo'ul Shots While TCU's Dick O'Neal, talliec 28 points for the game, the .Razor backs held him to five field goals- only one in the first half. O'Nea got his big total by sinking 18 of If foul shots.

Buddy Smith dropped in 16, Jerald Barnett added 13 Terry Day got 12. The other start er, center Pete Butler, was held tc only 8 points.
