LZACHYILLE NO. 1 /N THE STATE; BHS NO. 2 I • I One-Two Punch: Lions and Chicks Lost without His Towel ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.

Manila^ was runnerup to Leachville in the Northeast Arkansas Invitational at State College last week. (Courier News Photo by Dick Hefner) which never is absent a minute of a University of New Mexico basketball game. New Mexico has charged to an 11-1 season record and a No. 3 national ranking but the towel has not escaped the flings and Th» View from Hm ED HAYES Action at Big Lake SOME MISSISSIPPI COUNTY GENTS, UNEASY ABOUT hunting and fishing conditions at Big Lake, have made up their minds to do something positive about it. ' If you, too, have been uneasy about Big Lake adventures ind misadventure*, if you've done any grumbling about it, here's a chance to band with your compatriots for action. Paul Robbins of Manila said: "We're calling a meeting for anyone interested in better hunting and fishing conditions at Big Lake ... next Tuesday night at 7;30 In the Manila High School lunchroom." I reminded Paul that he was running into some stiff competition on that date since Jan, 17 it the night of the Blytheville-Leachville basketball rematch. "I know it," he said, "but it's the only night we can get the lunchroom. If we can get about 50 men to come out that night, we could get started and then contact all the others." . . ., . The Idea is te start some kind of sportsmen's club although we're not calling it that." Robbins has volunteered to serve as chairman of the roundup. It might be a good move (If you can't be there) to contact him and kick some Ideas around together. Better yet, be there, get in on the exciting groundwork and help overhaul Mississippi County's great outdoors. * * * Dragstrip Challenge LEON NEEDHAM, 19, ARMY-BOUND,- IS GETTING anxious. He's been cleaning up at George Ray's dragstrlp in Paragould but he still doesn't have the trophy he's gunning for. Will he sack it before trudging down the road to camp? I believe readers of the Courier News are familiar with the situation. * * * Leon's smiling daddy dropped into the Courier News Office yesterday morning to serve as spokesman for the young- man. Staled the elder Needham: "Leon would like to know what happened to the challenger . . . the local guy with the Chewy-powered dragster who was going to beat him two full itcondi." The challenger Is Jimmy Sellers who used the pages of the Courier News to bugle his claim. * * * "Leon has been on the starting line three times at the strip and he (the challenger) hasn't shown up yet." The elder N«edham speaking again. "Leon thinks the Chevvy just doesn't have what it takes to beat his Ford-powered dragster." Young Leon came out top eliminator with cash and trophy again Sunday afternoon at Paragould. But he still doesn't have the prize he wants most of all. And any moment now he expects the call to the military life. Stay tuned. * * * No Game for Chickasaws IF YOU'RE WONDERING WHY THE BLYTHEVILLE High Chickasaws only have one game this week, It's the way Dwlght Williams wanted It. You see, this is test week. And I'm not talking about the basketball test here with Jonesboro Friday night. Classroom tests is what I mean. Dwlght's basketball schedule next week is toui*h enough. Leachvllle here Tuesday ... and a road game Friday night Li'l Rock Central. Tough enough. 40 Hundreds at Keane Services HOUSTON (AP) - Hundreds of mourners paid last reipects Monday to Johnny Keane, manager of the 1964 world champion St. Loull Cardinals and, later, of th« faltering New York Yan- keat.
