Dr. David Miles, starter, saic le expects the usual good turnout of entries, about 20 or 25. 'However," he said, "we've got some entries from farther away in Arkansas this time. For instance, we have one horse entered from Marvell (near Helena)." It costs 50 cents to get on the Fair grounds, and another 50 cents for admission to the races. "In other words the peo pie can get to see 10 good racei for a dollar," Dr. Miles said. Trigger Wall of.Manila wil srobably be in charge of thi action at the finish line am registration stand.

Tonight, the undefeated Barson High Dragons from Bly- heville have a Triple A game t West Memphis. * * * It was Osceola's first loss— and a repeat of last year> hampionship year when Howard Cissell's youngsters were undefeated until Marked Tree. Now all that remains to be een is if the purple-clad Seminoles can bounce back as they did in 1965. They have an open date before getting started in tieir league (2-A) competition, Oct. 7 at Pocahontas. However, here is a B game in Osceola Tuesday night at 7:30 against Manila. yBOWLING/ sippi Ounty visitors, He went in from the three in the lut 60 seconds of the first quarter, raced 74 yards and plunged one in the third/thin sped 33 yards in the fourth quarter. Gosnell worked up several meaty threats, phmglng to the 20 on the game's first series before being forced to give the ball up. The Bucs lost the ball on downs again in the second quarter after driving inside the 20. In the last half, they could penetrate no deeper than the Corning 30. Gosnell backs Chuck Gentry, Butch Koons and Eugene Lee played their hearts out and got good results as GOsnell rushed 174 yards. Koons the wingback looked his best ever, and played a strong defensive halfback, '..*.* * Tackle Jim Kesner probably payed his best game, too. "He's beginning to come through," commented the coach. Lee made 15 tackles to lead in that category. Mike Ward at By The Aiwlated PreM NATIONAL LEAGUE W. L. Pet. G.B. Los Angeles . 81 S3 .595 Pittsburgh ...

From there the Indians drove for their first score. Marked Tree scored twice in the opening period before Osceola could get in the game. * * * The Seminoles' only tallying occurred here, Phil Morrow completing a six-point pass to Larry Gladden. Tthe play covered 30 yards. And Morrow kicked the extra point. It was 14-7 at the half. "We gave 'em the game in the first half," said the Osceola coach, "and they beat us in the second half." The opening portion was one frustration after another for the Seminoles, losing the ball twice on penalties, twice on fumbles and on the kickoff. Marked Tree got its head up after that and took charge. "We didn't have it," groaned Cissell. "I don't know what happened. I don't know if there's such a thing as getting up too much for a ball game or not." Added to the gloom was the knee injury to tackle Joe VanCleve. The extent of the injury caught three passes from Craig Pierce for 40 yards. "In general our kids did a good job as a team," said Smith. "They were still hurting pretty bad over that 60-13 loss last year and went up there to play ball. "We gave 'em all they wanted in the first half."

The Bucs are 1-3 for the season. * « > The score at Wilson looks like David McCullar's Bulldogs had an easy time of it but they came out with two knee injuries that could hamper 'em against Shawnee next week. Billy Wayne Bussey and Larry Stewart were the injured parties. There was no word early this morning on their condition. Wilson posted three touchdowns in the second quarter after a scoreless opening period, then added another TD in the third to rack their third win of the season. Crawfordsville hasn't won yet. McCullar opened up his offense a little to see what his Doggies could do. The scoring was varied. * * .. * Jack Snipes, senior fullback, plunged one yard for Wilson's first TD. A 24-yard pass play came next, sophomore quarterback Joe Goble pitching to sophomore halfback Larry Stewart for the six tallies. Also in the third frame, junior halfback Danny Cissell passed to sophomore tackle Freddy Parnell (who was an end this time) for another touchdown. The play went about 50 yards. A 30-yard pass play wrapped up the scoring in the third, senior halfback (and a dandy) Lynn Smith doing the throwing and junior end Leo Faulkner doing the catching. "Crawfordsville was crippled up," said the Wilson coach. "Bobby Watson does a fine job with what he has. * ' * . , Clayton 0ay ran a pair ol touchdowns in Marion's triumph S.

These birds are now protected along with the insectivorous and songbirds, and may be killed only when found in the act of destroying wildlife, domestic fowl, and livestock. The removal of these species leaves crows, starlings, and English sparrows on the unprotected birds list, and these birds may be killed by hunters during daylight hours any day of the year .

(AP) — The talk is usually of torrid putters after a Couple of rounds of tournament golf, but it's a red hot driver that's keeping young Homero Blancas ahead of the field in the $50,000 Greater Seattle-Everett Open Tourney as it moved into today's third round. The free-swinging Blancas added a 65 to his first-round 66 to take the lead Friday with an 11-under-par 131 and stave off the challenge of Dean Refram's record-breaking 64.
