Uffaffl, reserve guard, Sank the winning the last 20 seconds, after Leon Gooch had tied it up for the Harvesters. The game was delayed a few minutes in the third quarter when the Harvesters' Randal Clay was called out on fouls, although, by the, referees' owr admission. Clay had committed only four. The "official" scorebook showed Clay with five and he was forced to leave the game, with the score tied at 27-27. By Ted Kestrng <,Ice fishing is great sport* But SOU may doubt it after reading Glare V. Dwyer's impressions. Get up long before dawn from £-warm bed and tiptoe gingerly to tae window. Through one sleep- (flzed eye peer at the thermom- dter; looks like 15 below. Now i&e other eye. Same thing! Now with both peepers thoroughly open ? the pesky thing still s&ys 15 be- • •While hoping, that your companions won't show up, you gradually, piece-by-piece, pull on nearly ail the clothes you own. Now you remember your fishing license and ntbney are in the first pair of trous- efs you put on, which have been Covered by another pair. Finally, feeling like a stratosphere flier, you lljhiber to the kitchen to gulp down a>. cupful of coffee and the only edibles within reach, a handful of patato chips and a dill pickle. A horn honks, so you grab your Icfe chisel, scoop, and fishing stick and tear hastily through' the house, scratching all of the furniture that you failed to break. The boys in trie car have the heater going and the air smells faintly of alcohol, no doubt from the anti-freeze in the radiator. Well away from home you think of the packed lunch you had forgotten, and immediately feel famished. Eventually you arrive at the lake, and alighting from the car the piercing breeze -makes your eyes water and your nose act like a leaking faucet. The minnows are put into pint whisky bottles filled with water and placed in a convenient pocket. Left in the buckets, they would have quickly frozen, but now your body wormth will keep them snug and frisky. Some fishermen also carry a second bottle containing an anti- chill fluid, but sooner or later they take a swing from the wrong bottle. As you wearily chisel through the ice, console yourself with the thought that is fine exercise and you are breathing lots of pure fresh air ... hoping fervently your lungs won't freeze. When the chisel plunges from your paralyzed hands to the bottom of the lake, you can tell you've reached water. If you attach a leather thong to the chisel and loop it over your wrist, don't make the hole in the ice large enough to admit your hips. Then, when you follow the chisel into the water, you can still be retrieved by your waving legs. Some fishermen drop, the lines to the bottom and then pUll up 2, 4, or 6 feet.. The other totally different method is to drop the line to the bottom and pull it up 1, 3, or 5 feet. It seems to depend on whether you are an odd or an even fisherman. Each time you bait your line you find it has frozen into something resembling a piece of barbed wire. Of course that won't bother you— perhaps you've already caught one fish, and being an aptomist, assume there are some others. Methodically working your way around the lake, chiseling some five more holes to locate the "right" spot, ypu : find some newly arrived fishermen have pre-empted your old holes and taken out about 30 fish between theih. By this' time your' fingers feel like they are in a cast i of ice and the handkerchief you have tied across your.face feels like cold steel against your puffy red nose. So, you walk •awkwardly back to the car as though on stilts, and there await the gang, But wait until you tell the boys at the. office about it. You can revel in your prowess as a fisher- map and rugged outdoorsman. Yup —y'plu caught the limit. But then, after what you've gone through, a little exaggeration is excusable.

Cuyler Phone 21 The score was tied eight times during the game, but the hustle displayed by the Harvesters after Clay left the game pulled it out of the fire. Clay, sitting on the bench, shouted encouragement at the other team members and they seemed to take on renewed spark. The Harvester victory enabled them to obtain revenuge for a 4241 defeat suffered at Eorger a week ago. Pampa meets Amarillo here Tuesday nnd Borger entertains the Sandies at Borger next Friday. If the Sandies lose both of these games, the division teams will all be tied i.vith two wins and two losses each and a playoff will be held. Leon Crump ,-xnd Bernie Brown opened tho scoring for I'ampa with field goals but the Bulldogs came back to tie it up at the end of the first quarter 6-5. Center Bill Specr, who played his best game of the season, scored seven ixiints in the second period but Roy Lee Dunn, Paul Howard and Don Dally each got four points for Bor-. gL-r and the Bulldogs held an 18-17 lead at the half. With tho lead frequently changing hands, the teams ended the third quarter with the score tied 2727 and the crowd was gradually beginning to "go wild." Borger Went ahead 28 r 27 on a free throw by Dally but Sneer sank a charity toss and it was tied again. Speer made a field goal to put Pampa ahead 30-28, Cope added a free throw for the Bulldogs to make it 30-29, taut Laffoon retaliated with another field goal to give Pampa a three-point 32-29 lead. Dunn, Borger center, sank a long shot to pull the score up to 32-31 and Paul Howard sank one of two free tosses to tie the score. Gooch then sank a shot for Pampa but Dally followed immediately and the •.core was tied 34-34. Laffoon, who came in the game when Clay left, went down the court nnd sank a shot from near the free throw line and the Harvesters "froj'.o" the ball the rest of the way. Dally, with four field goals and four free throws, was the high Border and high game scorer with 12 points. Cope of ^Borger was second with 11 and Clay' and Speer of Pampa made 10 ea:h. Both teams committed 16 fouls with Paul Howard and Metheny of Borger and Clay of Pampa going out via five fouls. The box score: PAMPA (36) Player— fK Cluy i.

Feb. 9—(XP)—Base- ball's most interesting spring training season opens today With the New York Giants and Yankees ahd the Brooklyn Dodgers forming the vanguard of more than 900 big leaguers returning to warmer climes after three years absence. Each club has a topheavy player roster that must be pruned by sale option or outright release. Who wil go and who will stay depends largely on the playing condition of the returning servicemen who will decide the 1946 pennant races. St. Louis, for example, has an excess of talent on the Cardinal ball club that goes into St. Petersburg Fla., Feb. 1U. Owner Snm Breadon and Manager Eddie Dyer must decide if Terry Moore, Max Lanier Howie Pollet and others can play uv3 to prewar standards. Once the decision is made, the biggest selling bee since the Florida land boom will be under way. Every "lub in baseball hopes to land a Cardinal pitcher and the . bidding may go sky high if the right players are put on the market. As all returning servicemen must be given a 30-day • training camp trial (15 days in the regular season) and receive 15 days pay before they can be sunted to a lower ler.guc, little trading action is ex- "ected before March 15. But the teams then will have an entirr- nonth before I he season opens in which to make their changes. Cubs Keep Quiet On Marion Deal CHICAGO. Feb. 9—UP) — The reason you haven't heard a peep out of the Chicago Cubs on the base- jail ivory market is because (1) Sellin' Sammy Breadon of the St. LX>uis Cardinals is haViging on to Shortstop Marty Marion for deal- life and (2) The National league champions are loaded with problematical prospects. Manager Charley Grimm admll- iedly would chortle with glee, as only he can chortle, if Mr. Shortstop was in the flock when .the Cubs start rolling to their Catalina, Calif., island spring training base exactly one week hense, but Jolly Cholly still has the infield making's Without Marion. Some baseball lads interpreted the Cubs' recent waiver sale of Shortstop Roy Hughes to the Phils as a hint that Grimm was about to _rab Marion. Bradon insists, however, that he sooner would part with his (-'heck-cashing arm than the illustrious Marty. fieatt Jack Gels Ten-Bound Draw In Friday Fighl NEW YORK, Feb. 9—«»)—Ever since Beau "the Jumping" Jack eattie down the pike to win and lose the lightweight championship and commit general mayhem on a lot of other fellows, they've been saying his biizzsaw style was a carbon cbpy of the perpetual motldn machine- Henry Armstrong. .And today the Jacobs .beach beachcombers were wondering; if maybe the jumping Jack's engine hadn't run down and burned out just as suddenly and somewhat the same way Harnmerin' Hennery's did a few years back. ' The jumping Jack managed to get only a ten-round draw in Madison Square Garden last night with elevator Johnny Greco. Greco won just about everything but the decision, and when the officials failed to give him that, the <2rowd of 18,941 booed lustily. The sellout, incidentally, resulted in a gross gate of $148,152, the fanciest cash register-full ever attracted by two little men in the garden. For six rounds they stood shoulder to shoulder and belted away. But they went so completely all out and in a high gear through those first six heats, that by the time the seventh game around they'd just about run out of gas. In only two rounds, the fifth and sixth, when he uncovered a spear- ng jab and tossed in a couple of bolos that actually lifted Johnny clear off the floor, did The Beau do his usual business at the old stand. ft 0 2 2 0 0 0 0 4 3 0 2 4 1 0 0 10 Pf r> 2 4 2 0 2 1 16 r, 1 2 a" 5 0 0 IB I Pta.

Antelope To fie Thinned Out inn Trans-Pecos Area AUSTIN, Feb. B—(.4')—An extensive antelope-trapping program in ,he Trans-Pecos area where some ranches are becoming too heavily stocked will be undertaken next fall by the game, fish and oyster com- nission under direction of W. C. Glazener, new director of wildlife restoration. Glazner said today this project had priority on the department's restocking program. A shortage of materials and men tampered trapping operations for both deer and antelope last fall. This program has been completed. Such game can not be trapped while thn females are carrying young. One ot the principal shortages of material was of cotton netting used in the deer and antelope traps. Cot- e on meeting is utilized instead pl ! •i«ire to keep the animals from injuring themselves in attempting to escape. - niazner said he hop"d the ma- tpiials, including more needed 'rucks, wuld be available by nex,t fall. Antelopes trapped on overstocked ranches will be moved to aims wl'ere there are fewer ani- mnls. . ; Howard Dodgen, executive secretary of the commission, said that the department has not yet purchased an airplane which will be used in patrolling the Trans-Pecos, nnd also in helping to drive antelope into the traps, but that negotiations wei-e under way.
