But it's O.K. So does the Crimson Terror's. Promoter Herb Welch lias it billed as a mixed, heavy- midget tag team match, best-of-three falls, one hour time limit. Fargo's partner is Sonny Boy Cassidy. They're booked against the Terror and Fuzzy Cupid. » * * There's a grudge match on first, rough-&. tumbles rules prevailing, best of three, 60-minute limit. First match at 8:30. Tick- ets are 75 cents for adults; 25 cents for kids; and 35 cents extra for ringside tickets which may be purchased inside the Arena at 6:30. Last night in Memphis promoter Welch wrestled with Buddy Fuller and the pals were defeated by Tojo Yamamoto and Profesor Ito in two straight falls—but you could never tell it from loking at Tojo, Bushing blood. Tojo got a dose of his own medicine with an object that loked like a chain. Anyway, the refree finally disqualified Herb (after getting battered) but all Herb and Buddy lost was the decis- .ion and that hardly seemed important. The Japs' Top Award for Hogs' Loyd 1.

You get 19-year-old Leon Needham of Blytheville burning up George Ray's drag strip at Paragould and screaming away with the "Mr. Dragster Eliminator" title. Sunday, Leon won the "D" Class dragster trophy and first place prize money in addition to his title. To get his billing as top dragster eliminator, Leon had to wipe out "C" Class competition dragsters, including another Blylheville bred car. * •*• + Leon says his sights now are set on breaking the track record this.coming Sunday. He and his brother James, owner of James Needham's Garage south of Blytheville where the rail job was born, are making some changes in their critter for.the attempt. Just what the changes are Leon won't say but It's a *ur« bet the track record is-in danger. 'REASONABLE OFFER' SOUGHT Wills Is for Sale By MIKE RATHET COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The Los Angeles Dodgers said today they have placed short stop Maury Wills in the trade mart partly — if not primarily — because he left the club dur ing a tour of Japan. "I don't know yet whether Wills will be traded." said Buzzie Bavasi, the Dodgers' general manager, "but if anybody makes a reasonable offer then, Soccer Bonus . LONDON (AP) - Alt Ramsey, manager of the England soccer team, got a bonus of $16,800 today for leading his squad to victory in the World Cup. The award was made by the council o the English Football Association—five months after England's triumph at London's Wembley Stadium. New Head Coach . HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) ; Donald Miller, 33, a former ', quarterback at Delaware, it the ; new head football coach at Tin- ity College. ; Miller, an assistant at Trinity ' the last two season was named " Monday night to succeed Dan •lessee, of course, Wills would be one of the first we would trade." Asked if Wills' failure to remain with the Dodgers during the recently completed exhibition (our of Japan had anything to do with the decision, Bavasi said: "It's partly due t» what Wills did." A Vanislnng Frontier? What Wills'did was leave the Dodgers early in the tour after being refused permission to do so by Walter O'Malley, the Dodgers' president. However, Wills said he needed medical attention fo rhis right knee. In discussing Wills and the Dodger's decision, Bavasi said lie had spoken with O'Malley Monday night and they had decided to make Wills available. Bavasi revealed that he already had told three clubs that Vllls was available — the. New r"ork Yankees, Minnesota Twins and Atlanta Braves. Bavasi, however, indicated there haven't been any, firm offers that would make a deal mminent. During the 1962 season, Wild tole 104 bases. But last season, tampered by his leg injury, the 14-year-old shortstop stole, only 38 bases and was caught steal- ng 24 times. A staff member was visiting a friend in Blytheville during the Thanksgiving holiday, which happened to be the first day of the duck season. He noticed a new gun hanging on the wall of one of the rooms. Sam Macre, a business man, explained the gun had never been fired. He said, "I love to hunt, especially duck hunting but with the limit being as it is and the local conditions not so favorable any more, it just doesn't seem to be worth the bother." He was echoing the sentiments of all the duck hunters who have given up the sport the last S or 6 years. It would be a safe estimate 2 of every 3 people who were once avid duck hunters, have now given up the sport. The desire is still there but the hopelessness of the situation is also recognized. In the last decade, we have seen a rapid decline in the amount of wildlife and natural habitats ideal for preservation of that game. Bird hunting is almost nil in this part of the country due to the lack of cover. In order to kill a few rabbits, hunters are forced to drive farther and farther from their homes. Squirrel hunting is becoming more difficult as many hunters have experienced in the last few years. In areas hunted only the year before, they are returning the next season to find all the timber gone. In most cases this land is private property and -the owners have a legal and perfect right to cut the timber if they io desire. The hunter can only accept this and look to other areas. The only solution seems to be a foreitry law — which come states have — to prevent all the land from being cut bare. Each of us recognizes it'is a continuing struggle to retain the outdoor facilities w« have, to improve the ones that should be improved and to be individual watchdogs for these facilities to see they are maintained for the outdoors- men's use. At the same time we must recognize individual actions or protests are not enough and a strong local sportsman club working with other clubs and wildlife agencies seems to be our only salvation. WILL WE ALL EVENTUALLY HANG OUR GUNS ON THE WALL? * * * A rather irritated duck hunter called a few days before the season opened and vented his feelings about the lack of water locally. This usually happens at the start of every duck season. He also said a field near the hunting area had been completely harvested and it was his understanding the field was supposed to be harvested on an 8 and 4 basis. Harvest 8 and leave 4 for duck feed. He was also sure the local sportsmen voted in a majority for a state official from "that other party" because of the lack of progress on local outdoor projects. There is no way of telling whether this was a fact or not but it is very apparent some were weary of being pawns of outdoor projects. Weil known political analysts admit politicians are pretty good bait casters and some are extremely good with artificial baits. It is our. hop* the caller derives some satisfaction from seeing his views printed but it will neither raise the water level or the limit on ducks. 1NUSTR1AL Points Katz Jewelers ................ 183 Coca - Cola ................. 181 Sullivan Chevrolet, .......... 178y.
