The Isnue will be decided Saturday In this Oklahoma Panhandle town when Engel and Smith join other regional winners from Arkansas, In* diana, Iowa and Tennessee in a world toss-off. "This is the world contest- just like the Olympics," said Willis Landsen, publisher of the Beaver Herald Democrat. "The world record must be established here." Event Began In Oklahoma The event, according to legend, began in Oklahoma 's piiMieer days when small Iwys would toss cowchips into a wagon for later use as fuel. It has since become the biggest event of the year in Beaver. Gov. David Hall, who ha^ competed in the past two contests, will toss the first chip. Landsen said because of recent heavy rains, the committee that selected this year 's contest chips had to dry them indoors with fans and heat lamps.

"t pick out the best type of chip. I'm faking a few Texas chips with me just in case," he said. Landsen scoffed at the reputed 219-foot tdss credited to Engel. "They were throwing downhill," he said. "They stood up on the rim of a meteor crater and threw it." The Main Thing "Well, I'll say this," Engel said. "It went that far. I don't know if I can throw It that far again. The chips don't always stay together—that's the main thing." Engel has been out In the pasture getting in ehape all week because he feels it is his duty to the state of Texas. "Well, yes, t feel like I've got a little pressure going up there. t*m supposed to represent the state of Texas, noW) and that's why I've been out,praetjeing." Besides regional cowchip toeing winneirs, Landien said many dignitaries will attend Saturday's contest besides the governor But he said politicians who enter must compete in a special category with each other "because they have more experience in this sort of thing, of course." ers Belfast Women BELFAST (UPi) - Paratroopers battled women early today in a Roman Catholic area of Belfast after a 13-year-old boy was slain in crossfire between troops and gunmen. Women surrounded the paratroops after word of the death of Anthony McDowell spread through the neighborhood. They pushed, cursed and spat at troops, who struck back with rifle butts. Some of the troops suffered I slight injuries, a spokesman said. There was no report of injuries among the women. The McDowell youth was shot when a car in which he was riding drove into the middle of a gunfight between gunmen and troops. His death raised the toll in nearly four years of violence among Protestants, Catholics and security forces to 777. Before the gunbattle, an army spokesman said, Irish Republican Army extremists ambushed an army patrol in another Catholic neighborhood. One casualty in that gunfight was a pregnant woman, Mrs. Bridget McCann, 28, hit in the stomach by michine-gun fire. She y/as rushed to hospital for an emergency .operation that a hospital spokesman said saved her child. The spokesman, also said more than ISO bullets were fired at troops in other shooting incidents throughout the city, most of them in Catholic areas. Army sources said they anticipated increased activity by the IRA to mark the anniversary of its 1916 Easter uprising agahist the British in Dublin. InLondonderry, rioting youths threw up barricades and battled with troops after 10 men were arrested. It was the first time the barriers went up since the army operation smashed through Catholic barricades last August. Three Soviet-jmade rockets were fired at a police station 35 miles northwest of Belfast. One rocket lodged unexploded in the building's wall, but there were no casualties. The second exploded when it hit an anti- rocket net and the third demolished a car. Police said 12 gasoline bombs were thrown at an army post in a Catholic area, but police said there were no casualties. - \ **\ adora yQU, Susan. I worship tht vary atuff you braatha!"
