(ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE ELEVEN ARKANSAS OUTDOORS _.,,¥£ Game frft* (Wfesto LITTLE BOOK—The aH hunting ieaions in Arkansas are now In full swing, and the Game and Fish Commission would like to caution hunters to be extremeAy careful during this peak period of hunting pressure when more hunt- «rs of all types will be in the woods and fields. Death fe no respecter of persona or hunting classes, and anyone who take* a gun in his hands is vulnerable. Hunting safety should be respected by everyone, whether he be deer hunter, quail hunter. Minimi hunter, or rabbit hunter. * • • MORE THAN half of the hunting accidents which occur could be prevented and their victims spared if each hunter would take that extra split second to follow the advice, "Look Before You Shoot!" In war, the soldier looks before he shoots, to be sure that his target Is a human being and an enemy. In hunting, the hunter should look before he shoots, to be sure that the object which moved in .the show or distance was legal game and not a human being in line of fire. Where a rifle or a shotgun with a slug or buckshot Is being aimed, the hunter should take particular cnre to be sure that there is either an adequate backstop behind the game, or sufficient clear area for the missile to expend its energy without strikng a person, a bulding, or the livestock of an accommodating and friendly farmer. THE ARKANSAS Game and Fish Cimniission urges aU hunters to take that fraction of a sec- ond to look before they shoot. As a hunter, it you don't look before you shoot, you may have the very unpleasant duty of Informing a friend's widow or son of a tragedy for which you are responsible. It's true that you may lose an occasional shot by pausing, but needless to say, it IE much better to lose that game than to kill a human being. This is only one of the precautions which you should take on your next hunting trip. You can't go wrong: If you remember and I) met Ice these all important TEN COMMANDMENTS OF SAFETY. 1. Treat every gun with the respect due a loaded gun. This is the cardinal rule of gun safety. 2. Carry only empty guns, taken down or with the action open, into your automobile, camp and home. 3. Always be sure that the barrel and action are clear of obstructions. 4. Always carry your gun so that you can control the direction of the muzzle, even if you stumble. 5. Be sure of your target before you pull the trigger. 6. Never point, a gun at anything you do hot want to shoot. 7. Never leave your gun unattended unless you unload, it first. 8. Never climb a tree or a fence with a loaded gun. 9. Never shoot at a flat, hard surface or the surface of water. 10. Do not mix gunpowder and alcohol. Know and practice the TEN COMMANDMENTS OF SAFETY. Let's not let this peak hunting: season in Arkansas also become a peak season, for hunting accidents. Podres Must Wait For Draft Decision BROOKLYN (AP) — Johnny Podres, the southpaw with the pain in the back who became a pain in the neck for the New York Yankees in the World Series, probably won't know for 10 days or so whether he'll be drafted. The 28-year-old lefty, who won twice for the Brooklyn Dodgers In ttw series, including the decisive seventh game, went through not one but two physical examinations yesterday. After an Army doctor and an orthopedic specialist finished their probing, however, there still was no decision on his draft status. It's probable the doctors' reports have been forwarded to the surgeon general's office in Washington for the final decision, which will be announced by Podres' Ticonderoga, N. Y., draft board. His home is WIfcherbee, N. Y. Wearing: Brace When the second examination was finished, Podres hunched his shoulders and said, "I don't know a thing more." Should Podres, who was listed as • unfit physically for military service in 1952. now be accepted, he'd have a two-year tour of service ahead. Podres was unable to touch his toes during tests yesterday. He was wearing a foot-wide harness around his middle because of a displaced disc in his back.

The big, soft-spoken Texan, who more than made good his two promises — "we won't finish 42 games behind the pennant winner again" and "we won't lose 20 out of 22 to Cleveland" — nosed out the New York Yankees' pennant winning manager by four votes. Of the 99 members of the Baseball Writers' Association 01" America who participated in the AP poll, 39 voted .for Higgins and 35 for Stengel. Walter Alston, only championship, won the National Brooklyn manager to win a world League award. Marion Third Four other Aij managers re- received recognition. Marty Marion, who had the "dark horse" Chicago White Sox in contention all the way, picked up 16 votes to finish third in ihe balloting. Lou Boudreau, who surprised by piloting his Kansas City Athletics into sixth place, got four votes. The remaining four ballots were divided evenly between Bucky Syndicate Buys Richmond Club At Tax Auction RICHMOND, Va. iVP>—A six-man syndicate now owns Richmond's International League baseball club after a surprising deal in which the only big loser apparently was former owner Harry C. Seibolri. The syndicate purchased the team's triple-A franchise, equipment and player contracts for $2,000 yesterday at an auction held by the Internal Revenue Service, which had seized the club's assets. The government put the team up for sale to satisfy tax Hens totaling $79,218.68. Not only did Seibold lose his club, but he still owes the government S45, 315.97 on the tax claim. Applied to the original lien were the S20.000 auction sale price and $13.902.71 received for recent player sales. Seibold, who operated the club since Richmond received the triple- A franchise two years ago, did not show up for the sale. The syndicate is comprised of J ENJOY HENRY CLAY'S FAVORED WHISKEY!

This marked the first time since the AP managerial poll was inaugurated 10 years ago that a fourth place manager won the award. Observers who watched the 46- yeear-old Higgins during eight seasons in the minors and his freshman year in the major leagues credit the silent and sincere South- westerner with parlaying baseball knowledge, sufficient skill as a psychologist and ability to instill confidence in his players as the reason for his success. In Pennant Race The Red Sox didn't improve their position last season but under Higgins' able direction they won 15 games more than they did n 1954 and, from the time they ;ot rolling in June until the last month of the season, they were right in the middle of the pennant race.

"More than .anybody else, Hig gins was the one man who made UK into a winning club," said Frank Sullivan, the club's leadini pitcher. "He gave us the feeling he knew we were big leaguers.

With 204 sports experts casting ballots, Oklahoma's margin over Maryland jumped from 51 points to 167. Maryland's second-place edge over Michigan State dwindled to just eight points. Scoring is on the basis of 10 for each first- place vote, 9 for second, etc. 103 Firsts Oklahoma came first on 103 of the 204 ballots for a total of 1,844 points.
