This column is designed especially for you dad» who enjoy « little outdoor fun once in awhile but who lor monetary or other reasons might be a little hesitant, to nay what you would really like to find under your Christmas tree. For the Hunter* For outdoor men who like to elalk wild game, ducks, geese, deer, quail, etc., certain pieces of hunt- Ing equipment make Ideal Bills. The most practical of these is a good hunting coat—one with plenty of pockets that is water repellent and has a blood-prool game pouch. Bui remember, when buying H limiting cont buy one a half or full size too large so that the wenrer can put on plenty of warm clothes under it. Warm clothing 1s a must to every hunter so woolens are always welcome. Heavy wool shirts and socks are always a necessity as is woolen vnderwear because they provide comfort for the mnn In the field or In a damp duck blind. Hip boots are good gifts for the hunter. They, too, ore necessities lo the killers of ducks and quail. And boots, like hunting coals, should be bought B little large to allow room for a couple of pair of heavy socks. But there are several Hems a wo man should never attempt to buy for her hunter-husband. Let him pick out his own gun, for Instance because in the field a hunter's gun Is his chief companion so naturally he's fussy about It. The shoulder drop must be Just right and only the hunter knows whether he likes • n automatic, pump or double bar- Washington U.

So special fishing clothing intent e Just a waste of money.

A n or box scat ticket to tlic lome town teams' games of next year or some comfortable clothing .hat he can wear to football, basketball or baseball games. II he's a football fan, how about :he whole family chipping in and giving him a trip to a bowl game. The Sugar Howl at New Orleans, the Orange Bowl at Mlnm! or the Tangerine Bowl at Orlando. It will give him a few days to himself, a few days rest from the hustle and bustle at the office, shop or store. There are agencies that promote such trips with transportation housing nnd meala already arranged for. But' regardless of whether the king of the roost is a hunter, fisherman or Just K fan of athletics, he's still the guy that does the providing at your house. So why not give him a break this Christmas by giving him something he really wants, something that will help soothe the pain of the post-holiday bills. rung In the Associated Press poll depends on what they do ngainst Minnesota at Minneapolis tomorrow and Saturday.

That in itself will involve a number of questions, such as revision of the previously adopted round-robin schedule and how many games a team will ha ve t o play to be eligible for the conference championship. And it's a good befe that, while the college heads nre sitting down here, the controversial spring grid practice ban will be re-aired. We're just guessing, of course, but it could be that the AIC will be split into two groups — one favoring de-emphasis and the other preferring a status quo. Two Factions If this should happen and who knows what the AIC ever will do? You might find the church-sponsored schools in the de-emphasis group and the state-supported colleges in the other. Ouachita is a Baptist institution, Hendrix, which led the way back to non-subsidized athletic teams several years ago, Is supported by the fethodfst church. Arkansas Col- which dropped football earlier his year, is a Presbyterian school. The ATC's fourth denomination- I member, the College of the Oz- rks, has marie no move for de-em- hasis. But it didn't have to. As Ozarks football coach Frank Koon xplains it "we've never emphasiz- d anyway." The most energetic grid opera- j ion arc carried out presently by Arkansas State, Southern State, Arkansas A. and M., Henderson, Arkansas Tech and Arkansas State unds. They—or, at least, most of hem—appear inclined to want to :eep awarding athletic scholarships ind competing on as big a scale as s within their means. Little Rock Junior College, the conference's only JC, could be on the fence—in a position to go either way. New Loop IHnled Ivan H. Grov*e, the veteran Hendrix Athletic Director and Coach Stanley Robinson of Mississipp College, have been working for somi time on a plan for a new confer which don't subsidise athletes. Grove says Ouachita now Is qualified for membership in the league, If it is organised. Grove says Robinson has suggested that these other schools might be included: Hcndrix and Mississippi College, Oarks, Millsaps, Southwestern of Memphis, Univers- ity of the South at Sewanee, Bethel at McKenzie, Teim., and Washington University of St, Louis. A division along these lines certainly would equalize competition. Ouachita for instance, didn't win a conference game this year. For that matter, this one-time power of Arkansas football didn't win a game of, any kind. Vejor Booked To Meet Bolonos In Welter Match NEW YORK (AP)—Chico Vejar, brilliant Stamford. Conn., welter prospect, was matched today with Enrique Bolanos of Los Angeles in a Jan. 4 Madison Square Garden 10-rounder as a reward for his victory over Carmine Fiore of Brook lyn. Vejar's future—and particularly the Bolanos match—was very much in doubt last night' at St. Nichola Arena when Fiore knocked Chico down for an eight count in the second round of ten.
