The Chiefs gained 150 yards by rushing, Buffalo 73. It was Buffalo's first game of tin' season, and evened Kansas I City's record at 1-1, A large turnout of fans is expected at newly-lighted Pansier Field in Finnup Park here Sunday for a special benefit program of four games. All net profits from the show will go toward purchasing two macaws for the tropical bird collection at Lee Richardson Zoo here. Umpires and all other officials have agreed to donate their services. A 50-cent admission will be charged. The program is planned as a gesture of appreciation from the local softball group to park superintendent Claude Owens and his workers. They were responsible for much of the work done to improve the expanded playing field this summer. Owens has long desired to get a pah- of the parrot-like birds to round out the zoo's bird family.

It matches Garden City Farmers don't consciously plant wheat or other crop seed with a mixture of weed seeds, but many of them do not take advantage of the opportunity to have their seed wheat tested. All it costs to get a complete report on germination, weed seed content and inert matter is the price of the postage for. mailing a quart of tie seed to the state soed laboratory in Topcka for analysis. The address is 2524 West Gth, Topeka. "If a farmer will do this soon he will know the quality of his seed; If it has weed and other undesirable material in it, he will have time to locate better quality seed," Wayne Fowler told county weed supervisors at their recent Kansas State University conference. The secretary of the Kansas Crop Improvement Association reviewed results of a recent drill-box survey in which 50 of the 93 samples contained weed seed. Forty of the sam>ple s had dock, cheat, pennycress and morning glory seed. "Onry 14 of the 93 seed lots," Fowler added, "had been laboratory tested. "I'm sure the farmer s who planted seed germinating less | than 75 or 80 percent had stands j thinner than they wanted. Those with thin stands probably Warned something else because no sample that germinated less than 85 percent had been laboratory tested before planting," Co-op and Christensen Grain ol Pierceville. Both those teams have qualified for next weekend's stale tourney here. Co-op was first- round champ. Pierceville recently won the district crown. The two rivals split a twin bill only last Sunday.

Garden City II i g h wrestling coach Bob Wilson manages the Titans. In. early games, tliR Orbits won twice (by 8-5 and 16-12) over the Titans. But the much- improved Titans won by 8-4 Monday.
