Locals In Good Shape All three of Panama City's prep football teams, Bay, Rutherford and Mosley, are in good physical shape as the 1973 season looms. Rutherford and Bay kick off Friday night, the Rams playing host to Fort Walton Beach High and the Tornadoes going against Choctawhatchee at Fort Walton Beach. Mosley, a new school with only ninth, 10th and 11th grades, doesn't open until Sept. 28 at Tallahassee North Florida Christian. "We've been very fortunate injury-wise," reported Bay coach John Cobb, adding that he was going to knock on wood. "We haven't had anybody hurt. We should be at full strength Friday night if we can get by full-speed workouts Tuesday and Wednesday. "The kids are working real hard," added Cobb. "We had a real fine practice today (Monday), polishing up what we have been doing the last couple of weeks, getting down our offensive and defensive calls and working up the final gameolan." Rutherford Coach Lee Matthews reported a couple of Rams with injuries — Rick Moulder and Ken Spencer. "They both play the same linebacker spot and if one of them isn't back by Friday, we could be in trouble," said Matthews. "Other than that, we're in good shape, thank goodness," he added. "We're thin enough as it is. We can't afford to lose too many players." "I think it was just a matter of the kids being tired. We had had a tough week, starting with a jamboree (last Monday night at Fort Walton Beach). But the kids rested up over the weekend and we'll take it easy this week, polishing up and getting the assignments down for Friday night." Nelson Wins Feature Race Floyd Nelson won the A feature and Mike Hawkins the bomber feature in stock car races at Lynn Haven's Gulf Coast Speedway. A wet track provided some thrilling races. Results were: A feature, Floyd Nelson, Terry Austin, Tom Galbraith, Gene Purvis, Howard Wilson, John Egbert, C.B. Sumner; bomber feature, Mike Hawkins, Buford Suggs, Bobby Hatcher, James McCalvin, John Bailey, W. Scott; A heat, stocks, Wilson, Purvis, Egbert; B heat, stock. Buddy Hawkins, Austin, Braves Get Yank Pitcher ATLANTA (UPI) —The Atlanta Braves acquired left- handed pitcher Dave Cheadle from the New York Yankees Monday to complete the trade that sent pitcher Pat Dobson to New York last June.

Sapp, Egbert, McCalvin, Reuben Ward; black flag, Purvis, Austin, Egbert. Tennis Meet Entries Open Doyle Smith, local tennis pro who is ramrodding the "everybody" tournament at the Mowat Center Sept. 13-16 says anyone may enter by picking up an entry form at the Racket Shop, 211 North U.S. 231, or by phoning him at 265-2832. There will be men's and women's singles competition on a level for experienced players and B level for those not so advanced. There will be junior competition in all divisions, and a mixed division with an experienced player and one with lesser experience on each team. Juniors who plan to play on their school teams are invited to compete and gain additional experience. Matthews reported Monday's practice session was devoted to reviewing Friday night's scrimmage. "My first impression was that it was dull and flat, but after looking at the film, I wasn't quite as disappointed," said the coach. Jim Redfern, who moved from Rutherford to take over the new job at Mosley, reported only one player missing workouts due to an injury. Defensive back Paul Johnson has a broken wrist. The Dolphins competed in a jamboree Friday night at Graceville, beating Cottondale and losing to Graceville, ana Redfern revealed he was "very disappointed. But I should have expected it because we have a very inexperienced team and we looked like one in the jamboree. The kids made a lot of mistakes that they shouldn't make after they get some experience. Our school color is green and that's what our football team is." Bear Hunt Under Way No reports of bear kills during the Apalachicola National Forest season that opened Saturday have been received here, but 200 hunters got permits to hunt. The season extends through Sept. 30, and bear kills must be registered at Jewel Tower in the forest. The archery season is open statewide.
