Tht View from Hert ED HAYES SOMEONE SAID THAT THE MOST EXCITING PART OF 1 the basketball game here Friday night was when the volunteer firemen were called out to snuff out the blaze downtown. Blytheville won the game against Li'l Rock McClellan 7549 Speaking of firemen, Blytheville guard Bill Peterson is one of the best firemen a tired quintet ever had. * * * There was no announcement on the size of the audience in the BBS gym but it was good, considering the risky conditions of the streets, roads and footpaths. Student backing of BHS games remains frisky. ST LOUIS HAWKS' FIRST NBA GAME IN MEMPHIS this winter is Dec. 19 against the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls are one of the few who didn't beat the Hawks in Memphis last season. The Bulls weren't in existence then. The opening preliminary in Memphis is a 6:15 high school game, Kingsbury vs. Union City. Tickets at the Mid-South Coliseum box offices are % ?3 The Hawks have a rough schedule this week: Wednesday in Los Angeles, Thursday against Francisco in Phoenix (Ariz.) and Saturday night back to St. Louis against Philadelphia. * * * THESE BHS FOOTBALL BOYS HAVE EARNED LET- terman jackets: Danny Deen, Lewis Spaeth, Buddy Layton, Mike Brothers, Pat Long, Eddie Pharo, ; Mike Sisemore, Dock Boyd, Tommy Barnes, John Elliott, Russell Johnson, Richard Connel, Phil Long, Terry Richardson, Wayne MUloway, Jim Presnell, Steve Owen, John Macre, Charles Hall, injured Curtis Stout; and managers Mike Usrey and Mike Deen. Blankets for: Mike Guillot and Dave Miles. Gold footballs for: Mike Smith, Rob Porter, Lewis Walters, Robert Elliott, injured Bo Briggs; and John Black who served as team manager, trainer and attempted to kick some extra points. * * * Blytheville B team letter winners: Aubrey Allensworth, Richard Brewer, Tommy Bennett, Bill Caudill, Dennis Edwards, Lynn.Ellis, Earl Gentry, Jodie Gude, Whit Morgan, Van Nowlin, Dave Russell, Pat Shirley, Danny Strange, Jimmy Tompkins and Chris Tompkins. * * * WHEN I REPORTED SEVERAL DAYS AGO THAT THE Blytheville Chickasaws were getting close to signing a high school in Paducah for a football series, I was stumped with' not knowing how to spell its name. Well, I said to myself, no one around here will know the difference, so I took the easy (phonetic) way out and spelled it Tillman High. No one knew the difference? You're a dreamer, Ed. * * * Mrs. Chuck McFall, whose son played for the Chickasaws and earned All-AIC honorable mention this season at Ouachita, called to kid me about it. She not only heard of the school. Tilghman is her alma mater. Of course the charming Mrs. McFall is pulling for the series. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Paducah is only about 140 highway miles from Blytheville. * * * RICKY EAGER IS ANOTHER FORMER FOOTBALL Chickasaw. Ricky was on the small side here but showed signs of broadening in his senior year when he hit the isometrics.. He gained about an inch in his necksize practically overnight. This year as a college senior Ricky played football for one of the best collegiate teams in the nation at San Diego State. The school ended up No. 1 in the Associated Press small school poll and hurled a challenge at Alabama (not Alabama State or East Alabama but the big mammy, the Alabama Crimson Tide). * * * I don't think even the disappointed Arkansas State College football fans would dispute San Diego State's claim to No. 1. The Arkansas Staters are disappointed because they were passed up by the Pecan Bowl people. They have reason for disappointment but I believe they're carrying it too far. They're pushing for a new municipal law in Jonseboro: anyone caught eating pecans is subject to 24 hours in the lockup on walnuts and water. * * * TWO GOOD FRIENDS, WALLY SMITH AND TRAVIS Deen, the fathers of Blytheville athletes, lost loved ones over the weekend. Wally's brother and Travis' dad died. Prayers and sympathies are offered. May God grant their souls sweet peace. Boston's Nonce Gaming Yards Instead of Weight By RON RAPOPORT Associated Press Sports Writer For Jim Nance 26 pounds was • the difference between the : bench and the record book. ! Nance's running highlighted . Boston's 14-3 American Football League victory over Buffalo Sunday, a victory that, all but gave the Patriots the Eastern Division title. Nance scored : once and gained 10 Syards, rais- , ing his record rusing total to 1,234 yards for the season. All in all, it's a big change from the former Syracuse star's 1965 season in the APL, his first, during which he spent most of the time gaining weight instead of yards. * * * "I wasn't concentrating on what I was doing," he said in the Boston locker room after the game. "The weight kept going up and I didn't even notice it." When the scale hit 262, Nance hit the bench, but this year there have been some changes made. "I got my weight down to 236," he said. I can make better, sharper cuts now. And I set my goal as being the best back in the league." How well he has succeeded Is shown partially in the standings ot the Eastern Division. Boston has only to tie its last two games against Houston and New York to'win the title. Also, it is not totally out of the question for Nance to beat the second-year rushing total of 1,527 yards gained by Jim Brown with the Cleveland Browns in 1958. ' Nance's touchdown was a 65- yard effort — the longest rush of his career — and he also supplied a key block that broke quarterback Babe Parilli for a 3-yard scoring rush. * * * In other. AFL games, San Diego beat Houston, 28-22, Denver took Miami, 17-7, and, in a Saturday game, Oakland and New York fought to a 28-28 tie. kBOWUNG/ Clifton Whitney cracked 213592; Ted Byerly 221-533; and Bill Erler 194-509 in Sunday Night Mixed Doubles League at StraWD-Lanes. For the women Jean May hit 176-483; and Jane Byerly 219-464. League- leading Mayes Book and Music turned 919; and thirdplace Maybes 2321.

An Equal Opportunity OSCEOLA BOWS AT GOSNELL; DRAGONS FLASHY Believe It: Lux Downs Dyess Luxora High's Panthers didn't do the impossible Saturday night. You woi'Mn't even call it a minor miracle. What they did was beat Dyess in basketball. This hasn't been accomplished since—well, veteran ringsiders Weren't sure. But some ble- timers were saying Luxora hadn't beaten the basketball powerhouse in at least a decade. Others were saying it's been longer than that since the Pan thers have even come close. In other Saturday night matches: Osceola was defeated 72-51 at Gosnell; Missco won 79-59 at Reiser; Wilson thrashed Earle 72-38; Harrison High's Dragons turned back Brinkley 83-53; and Wilson boys and Shawnee girls advanced to the Earle championship finals. What makes the Luxora feat even more remarkable: the visiting Eagles were ahead of Luxora 20-12 at nalftime and 35-28 going into the final eight minutes. Desperate, Ray Patterson's Panthers turned to the all-court press—and it was successful. Several steals later they were within striking distance. Finally Ray George popped the go-ahead bucket with three minutes left and the Luxorans stayed out front the rest of the way. Dyess was awarded a one- and-one foul situation with seven seconds remainin, the score standing at 47-44. The one shot was made, the second missed, and that's the way she ended. + * * George was high scorer in the battle with 20 points. Teammate Bobby Bynum banged 10. Dyess' Barter collected 17 and Brown 11. Another George sharpshooter —Tanya—swished 24 points to lead the Luxora senior girls to a 47-35 victory in the opener. Luxora had to rally in this one also. The Pantherettes trailed 21-20 at the half. The twinbill at Luxora was rescheduled from Friday night because of the freezing rain that tinted the area. * * * . Osceola Junior High won the Srst game of the rescheduled doubleheader at Gosnell but the senior Gosnell Pirates hammered a decisive win in the nightcap. Osceola's Seminoles made a game of it in the main event— at least in the first quarter. Gosnell led here 11-7, then zoomed to 31-19 halfway lead. Richard Mullins raked up 32 points for the winning Pirates. Dale Lewelling dropped 14; Gary Luzader 10; Cliff Parrott 7; 2 apiece by Dennis Travis, John Watson, Craig Pierce and Mike Roberts; and Randy Frey dished up one. Ronnie Bennett netted 10 for Osceola; and Phil Morrow 9. Rip Rozelle, stashed 15 points 36-19 runaway. For the Baby Gun Meet Mississippi County Gun Clnb is to meet at 7:30 tonight at Goff Hotel. Winners of yesterday's carbine match are to receive trophies at the meeting.
