TRIAL RUN — When Richard O. Dixon of Yucaipa gives the command "Hi- up," his Siberian husky dog team will be off and running across the snow with the traditional and seeming ease of their breed. Mrs. Dixon is shown adjusting a harness prior to a trial run. The Dixons will be competing in the annual Sled-Dog Derby at Fawnskin in Bear Valley tomorrow and Sunday. Sled-dog teams can travel up to 25 miles per hour. (Norton AFB photo) Yucaipan to enter team in S /ed -Dog Derby ' SIcd-dog racing is a rather rare sport in arrid Southern California but Richard 0. Dixon of Yucaipa has a team of Siberian huskies ready to compete in the 10th annual Big Bear Valley Sled-dog Derby in Fawn, skin tomorrow and Sunday, Feb. 8 and 9. Dixon, who has been competing for several years, got involved in dog-sled racing almost by accident. For he and his wife, Barbara were looking for a pet to replace a collie who had just died when they literally fell in love with a Siberian husky pup. ! Since then, Uiey have added three more to their "kennel" for a full sled team of the breed which is native to frigid northeastern Siberia. His champion dog is Kenu with the others answering to such typical names as Fanya, Kasha — and Hoot. Dixon uses a light but sturdy sled of hickory and spruce which was made by a man who formerly lived in Alaska. He notes that "A dog team pulling a sled has a top speed of around 25 miles per hour and many a driver has lost a race by losing his grip and falling off the sled." The races at Fawnskin this weekend will include a distance race of up to 20 miles, a "lead dog" contest based on obedience, a freight race (25 pounds for each dog), a spring race for women, men and children and a beer can race (driver has to lean over and pick up cans from moving sled.) As many as 20 racers from as far away as Nevada and Arizona are expected to participate in the weekend events. When the snow season is over, Dixon races his dogs in 'wheel" events and also enters them in dog shows. His dogs won the mile wheel sprint race at March AFB last month.

Everything went wrong Thursday—and Don shot a five- under-par 66 to come out leading the pack by two strokes. He overslept and nearly missed his tee-off time; he didn't get any chance to warm up; his left shoulder hurt him so much that he couldn't swing properly: he spent most of the afternoon in the trees. I don't know how I did it," says the 34-year-old native of Casey, 111. now playing out of Perdido Bay. Fla. "But I'll have to admit it was my best scoring round in a long time."] ra c"e''in"the past'seven year's" Fairfield is being trailed by glamor boy Tony Lema, Bill Collins, rookie George Archer and long-shot veteran Herman Scharlau, each with three- under-par 68s. Fairfield, who started early Thursday and had five birdies —one with a 60-foot putt—goes off late today and there will be a new early leader. He had nines of 32-34.
