Mo. — Wardell High School's basketball team goes to Steele this week to take part in Steele's invitational tournament but will return to its regular schedule play next week. Executive Secretary T. A. Mc- Amls explained that the Commission's request for quail wings was one of a three-part program designed to improve quail populations and hunting conditions. Department biologists are able to examine quail wings and determine exactly, how old the birds are, the percentage of young to adults, and almost as many other facts about them as could be determined if they were examining the whole bird. This scientific analysis gives the Commission the information it needs to establish bag limits and seasons. The Commission's goal is to obtain approximately 1,000 right Wings from each quail-producing county in the state during the first ten days of the season. Therefore, hunters are asked to cooperate by turning over the right wings of birds killed to their local Game Warden or to send the wings in to the Commission at its office in Little Rock.

The third phase of the Commission's program involves the distribution of applications for farmers and landowners desiring to participate in the Commission's food and cover program. These applications for seed have already been distributed and additional forms may be obtained through local Game Wardens or by request to Uie Commission.

Barring miracles in the form of sharp reversals of form, It appears that the Browns and Lions, titans of the pro game, will meet for the championship next month for the third straight time. While Cleveland moved closer to the clincher by handing its closest pursuers, the New York Giants, a 16-7 setback, the idle Lions saw the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers drop out of contention, leaving only the Chicago Bears in the race. Bears Can Tie The best the Bears can do is tie Detroit for the Western Conference lead. They can do that only If the Lions lose all of their three remaining games and the Bears win the pair they have left. Cleveland can nail down Its fifth Eastern Conference crown by winning two of three, no matter what the Giants and Philadelphia Eagles, in a second-place deadlock, do.

Defense Bis Factor Cleveland's impregnable defense again played a vital role in its game with the Giants. So stalwart were the Browns' defenders that New York gained a net of only four yards rushing and their passes picked up only 64 more yards. The Giants defense did right well too. but it was unable to stop Otto Graham, who completed 16 aerials 1 AT R. D.

Shift of Kansas City, Columbus Franchises Near Showdown By JOE REICBLEB • HOUSTON (AP) — The New York Yankees' efforts to place their homeless Kansas City American League franchise in Denver and the St. Louis Cardinals' plan to shift their Columbus club to Omaha reached the "showdown" stage today as the minor leagues prepared :o open their annual convention. With the Dec. 1 deadline for any franchise shift only 48 hours away, officials of the clubs and leagues involved were knee-deep In special sessions and private caucuses honing to bring baseball's newest and biggest headache to some sort of solution. The American Assn. and the Western League scheduled separate meetings before tangling. In a joint session later In the day. In the meantime, officials of the Yankees, Cardinals, Denver and Omaha clubs were engaged in prl- ue conferences. OUiw Meeting* Delayed Realizing- that the ultimate decision reached at these meetings and conferences could lead to baseball's greatest realignment of teams, ither leagues held off their meetings until the picture cleared. This much was known. The Yankees want to move their Kansas City AA franchise to Denver, currently In the Class A West- em League. The Cardinals are ready to vacate Columbus and switch that A Afranchlse to Omaha, also In the Western. The Cardinals, incidentally, also own the Omaha franchise. The Independently owned Denver club Is operated by Bob Howsam. 550.000 Offered The Yankees reportedly have offered $50,000 for the Denver franchise. This has been refused. Western League directors have re fused to set any price and have challenged the American Assn. to initiate draft for its territory procedures as permitted under the rules. The Yankees prefer negotiation to draft for two reasons. First, they would like to settle the matter peaceably. Second, a draft victory would still leave them with- out a ball park, which they would* 36 forced to either rent or purchase from Howsam. The Yankees don't want to buy the Denver park and Howsam doesn't want to lease it. The Cardinals-Omaha situation is not so Involved. Draft Is out of the question there since Omaha Is Cardinal owned. Besides, only one city from a league can bo drafted, according to uasclmll law. Play Starts Today in Steele Tourney STEELE.
