MONDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1954 BI.YTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE ELEVEN Major Leagues Open Winter Meet Today *¥¥# ***# Reds and Dodgers Talking Trade By JOE RE1CHLER NEW YORK (AP) — The major leagues opened their annual .winter meetings today and the big talk centered on the proposed trade between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Cincinnati Reds. Some quarters said the teams already have completed a five-player deal, but this was denied. — *The two clubs definitely have a trade lr\ the making, though. The key player would be Brooklyn's Junior Gllliam, the Negro infield- erl who may have lost favor with the front office. Both the Reds and Philadelphia are interested in him. The Phillies have offered catcher Smokey Burgess and a young outfielder, as yet unidentified. The Beds have suggested a package deal Involving Fred Baczewski, left-handed pitcher, (or Gilliani and either veteran Russ Meyer or youngster Bobo Mllliken, both ARKANSAS OUTDOORS A ** Arkansas Game&Rsh Commission 2nd Deer Season Opens Monday- Here's 10 Safety Commandments LITTLE ROCK — The fall hunting season will be at its peak with the second period of big game hunting opening Monday (Dec. 13) for deer hunters and adding to all the smaller game seasons now in full progress. Although the second period deer hunt scheduled Dec. 13-18 never brings out as many hunters, continued fair weather attract as many as : I to 25 thousand nim- area of hunting. rods. Many ot these \vill be hunters who for various reasons were not able to participate in the November hunt and there will be others who will want to make a second effort to take home that trophy head. All the hunting regulations which applied to the November deer period will be in effect for the December hunt with one exception. The experimental season permitting the taking of any type deer in the Black Mountain Area during the November period will not be effective during the December hunt. Only legal bucks with a minimum antler length of four Inches or forked antlers may be taken in any the State open to deer Several Fatalities During the first period deer hunt in November there was a rash of hunting accidents which took the lives of several hunters atlhough only one of these fatalities can be directly attributable to' the deer hunt. At the same time, the Commission would like to caution hunters to be extremely careful during this peak period of hunting pressure when more hunters of all types will be in the woods and fields. Death is no respecter of persons or hunting classes, and anyone who takes a gun in his hands is vulnerable. Hunting safety should be respected by everyone whether he be deer hunter, quail hunter, duck hunter, squirrel hunter or rabbit hunter. More than half of the hunting accidents which occurred could have been prevented and their victims spared had each hunter taken that extra split second to follow the advice, "Look Before You Shoot!" Always Look 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 shadow or distance was legal game, and not a human being, in line of fire. Also, where a rifle or a shotgurr'with a slug or buckshot Is being aimed, the hunter should take particular care 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 striking a person, a building, or the livestock of an accommodating and friendly farmer. Take that fraction of a second to look, Mr. Hunter, before you shoot. If you don't, you may have the very unpleasant duty of informing a friend's widow or son of a tragedy for which you are responsible. True, you may lose an occasional shot by pausing, but needless to say it Is much better to lose that game than to kill a human being. 10 Safety Commandments 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 practice 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 not 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. The first requirement in using a rifle or shotgun is to know and practice the Ten Commandments of SafEey. You should also know your gun and how to . operate it safely. You should know the maximum range of your gun so that your shooting will be kept within the safe limits, or controlled by a safe backstop. Never fire n rifle or shotgun without full knowledge of the background at which you are aiming. Be sure, also, of where the bullet, shot pellets, or slug will strike. Let's not let this peak hunting season also become a peak season for hunting accidents. Pro Basketball Results By The Associated Press Minneapolis 104, Milwaukee (overtime).

Alabama was figured as the one team with a chmu'c to edge Kentucky out of the league title. The St.Louls game wasnt' a league encounter, but it proved Alabama' & disappointment.

MY FRIENDS — After four turbulent years, Coach Woody Hayes of Ohio State can smile again. Here, Hayes flashes his Well known grin as he receives a big ovation after being introduced ai .Ohio State's annual Football Appreciation Dinner. And he has a reason to smile, his team having finished the season undefeated, and the Buckeyes are headed for the. Rose Bowl New Year's Day. (NEA) (Buzzie) Bavasi, Dodger vice- president, was deliberating the offers. Alternate Deal Ready The Reds have an alternate deal with the St.Louis Cardinals brewing if they fail to land Git- liam. They are seeking a second baseman with the idea of shifting Johnny Temple to third. Relief pitcher Frank Smith is the Cincinnati bait. Brooklyn also is' expected to do j some business with the .American ' League. The Dodgers finally have obtained waivers on Billy Cox and are dickering with Cleveland and Baltimore for the sale of the veteran third baseman. Cox will go to the highest bidder. The asking price is $40,000 plus one or two players of minor league caliber. Yanks, Bosox Talk The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox were reported to have had conversation regarding Yankee third baseman Gil McDougald. The Red Sox reportedly have offered outfielder Karl Olson and southpaw Bill Henry. The major leagues were almost certain at their meeting to reject an amendment, adopted by the minors last week, to ban commercial telecasts and broadcasts of baseball games outside a club's home territory. There was a 50-50 chance, however, that the big leaguers would agree to reduce their player limit from 25 to 23, thereby allowing two more players to be sent an option to the minors.

The triumph, following the semifinal conquest of Australia's other tandem of Lewis Hoad and Ken Rosewall, buoyed U. S. Cup hopes and virtually eliminated Hartwig and Rose from challenge round consideration, The left-handed Rose, who holds the Australian national singles title, definitely was the weakest player on Kooyong Stadium's sun- drenched court.
