WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7,19B« BLTTHEVILTJB (ASK.) COURIER NEWS PAGBNINI Coge Closeup No. 4 N. Carolina State Coach Hunts Talent Anywhere By JIMMY BRESL1N RALEIGH, N. C. — (NEA) _- Basketball at North Carolina State College is a national project — an all-year one. "There aren't enough good players in Carolina high schools," Everett Case says, ARKANSAS OUTDOORS A ** Arkansas Game *Rsh Commission LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission announces the appointment of Mr. W. G. (Bill) Staub to head the over-all State Quail Program. Mr. Staub will be assisted by Technicians Robert Parker and Clyde Goddard. All of these men have had several years' experience and training In Quail management, having -visited, neighboring states in order to learn the latest technique* of other commissions. . The Commission also announced that the 4,205 acres of land owned by the Commission, which were secured from War Assets when Camp Robinson was de-activated, would .be developed for quail. Thii tract, which border* lake Conwar, will b« fenced In order to eiclude all livestock. Bicolor, ptM, aerica, and other wlldllle food, will be planted in the area in an effort to make thii »re» u mttratUve »n4 productive M pot' ifble of quail. Final plans for the harvest of the quail have not been made, but the area will supply a long-felt 'need lor a place where quail hunters can train their dogs. A QUAIL CENSUS is being made at the present time In order to determine the number of birds already "on the area. Quail censuses which will be made later on will reveal the success of the effort to increase quail; and coat records, which will be kept on-the development work, will reveal the annual cost of each bird produced. .'. The Commission 1> going to continue its quail development ol all lands suitable .for quail, that are either owned by the Commission or leased from the Federal Government. Most of the lands owned .by the Commission are rich overflow bottomland areas, but on most areas there are some tracts o[ high , ground which are suitable for quail. A considerable portion of the Shirey Bay Area in Lawrence County, some land adjacent to the lake at Harris Brake, and some of the higher ground in the Petit Jean and Bois d'Arc areas are especially suitable for quail—and are being developed. The Commission has under lease, from the Federal Government, lands owned by the Corps of Engineers at Bull Shoali, Norfork, Nlmrod and Blue Mountain. These leased areas are being de- veloped substantially the same as land owned by the Commission—by the planting ol food and cover plots. Plots which have been established and maintained for the past lew years have always been highly attractive, but the cost of this development work has always been high wherever it was necessary to fence the plot* to prevent grazing by livestock. * * • THE COMMISSION is continuing its program of offering to private landowners the services of their trained biologists and technicians. Landowners who wish to develop their property for their own qquall hunting should contact the Commission in order' to receive the advice from the personnel of this department. Private landowners wishing to plant some ol the special varieties of perlennials and annuals which are highly attractive to quail may secure these at cost by placing their order with the Game and Pish Commission. The Commission is offering bicolor lespedeza plans to the public at 8-00 per thousand and multlflora. rose seedlings at 16.00 per thousand. Orders for these two kinds of plants should be received within the next two weeks, and the plant* should be placed in the ground within the next thirty days. Ked Ripper peas, a variety which is especially useful in quail work, in that these seed will remain on the ground for longer periods without deteriorating, are also being offered to the public at cost. The limited amount available at the present time can b« had for 1Z« per pound. The price of these seed, after the limited sup- plf now available is exhausted, will depend upon the market price of additional seed that the Commission plans to purchase within the near future. The Commission also announced that the Trout fishing season will open on April 1st this year, and that the siie Umy, on trout has been removed, allowing the trout fisherman to retain all fish caught up to six on the daily string limit. JUNIO* ALL-STARS - Wendell Ingle (No. N) and Billy Burii- son, both members of Coach Tom Park's Dyess Junior Eagles, were named to the class B all-state junior basketball team. Burlison scored li points in the playoff for the state championship but his team lost to Yellvllle, M-51.

"That way the. scholastic oad won't wear them down during he season," he says. The Wolfpack roster shows that Ronnie Shavltk, the AU-Am«ric» -ivot, comes from Denver; Vic Mo- odet, the backcourt star, from Sast Chicago, Ind. Not one member of his varsity is from North Cwolina. Like Kansas, North Carolina State keeps basketball on the campus level. Games are played at Reynolds Coliseum, which seats 3,000. With it, State has led the mtion in basketball attendance the past six years — averaging 250,000 season. The Dixie Classic, a Case conception, drew 65,000 this season. That's big business, which Is exactly 'what North Carolina State 'asketball has become. State, you see, is 8 sister institu- ion of the University of North Carolina. A technical school, it al- ays was far behind North Caro- ina in football, basketball and es- *em. This hurt the school's academic plans badly. State has an alumni oundation which supplements salaries for technical people hired away from private industry. To raise the money, the school needed something to needle alumni. It was decided to put out a big-time basketball team. * • • Case, with a rich Indiana high school background, was hired for the job and told bluntly ne had to win.'He started off the 1946-47 season with an all-Indiana team which swept to national honors. The Wolfpack hasn't stopped running. Reynolds Coliseum—"The House That Case Built". — was erected. People in the clay and tobacco country began to learn what big-time basketball was like — and North Carolina State alumni began to finance a string of top-notch Instructors. L. L. Kay, the alumni fund director, says, "North Carolina State people now have .something to talk about. The school,, they feel, isn't behind. It's on top. It helps us a lot." Case keeps up a red-hot recruiting program which sees his school in the running for nearly every top high school prospect In the nation. Vic Bubas, an assistant, spends most of the year scouring the na- tter, by automobile, trying to gel players. He'll drive to Long Island or brand Island, Neb., if there's a •sood player in the offing. • • • Last year, the school was suspended by the National Collegiate Athletic Association for conducting tryouts. "I'm for tryouts," Case says, ?;ith typical bluntness. "They want me to hand a scholarship to a boy without looking at him. That doesn't make sense." North Carolina State players get room, board, tuition and $15 a month for laundry, but more charges have been hurled at the Raleigh institution than any other college on this point. When Ronnie Shavlik, already on an athletic scholarship, received an additional grant of »1,500 put up by a North Carolina tobacco firm, the snickers were loud and long. De-emphasis is a word for spelling bee cotnestants at North Carolina State. 51st for Dons; Bills in NIT By ED WiLKS The Associated Presi San Francisco's Dons have their first unbeaten regular season in the bag, the National Invitation Tournament has its 12-team field wrapped up and the NCAA needs but one more entry The Dons, defending NCAA champs, bagged their 51st straight and their 25th of the season last night, walloping St. Mary's (Calif.) 82-49.

For years, Seavy, from Clearwater, and Wells, from Wichita, Kan., have been the principal contenders for this international event although last year another Clearwater skipper, John Hayward, took the title. Hayward finished fourth in yesterday's race, after Harry Levinson of Indianapolis, another veteran skipper. Two more heats are scheduled for today, and one each tomorrow and Friday.
