TOB8BAT, SEPT. I, 1988 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.T COtmiT5R Southern Cal Loses Bowl Winning Squad By BOB MYERS LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California's Trojans lost much from their 1952 Pacific Coast Conference-Rose Bovyl winning squad, but they have plenty to shoot with in 1953. Optimistic Trojan lovers firmly believe the conference title will be decided here between USC and UCLA Nov. 21. They even foresee the possibility of USC meeting Notre Dame here Nov. 28 for the mythical National Collegiate championship, provided, of course, Troy gets by UCLA. e All this happy business is any-f • — , thing but happy to the head coach Jess Hill. But Hill himself is con fident his squad will be good an tough to beat. • .. .

Victory over Wisconsin, T-0, in the Rose Bowl all but erased the loss to the Irish, giving as it did the coast its ifirst victory in the bowl in seven games against the Big Ten. Lost 20 lettermen Hill lost 20 lettermen. He welcomed back a squad of *73, including 23 lettermen and a host o: sought after sophomores. Defensively,' DSC could hardly be better. The 1952 platoon was the toughest in the country, limiting all foes to 47 points in 10 games. The school is booming long Tom Nickoloff at right end ,and George Bozanic at quarterback, with Ara- mjs Dandoy the main tailback vSozanic, 207 and up pounds, was a terrific linebacker two years ago, and a blocking back last year. Now he has blossomed forth as a ball carrier and passer, harking back to his high school days at Lander, Wyo. Limited substitution? Yes, it hurt USC, with its big squad. But no more than other big squads. Ted Kroll Wins Tourney With Assorted Shots WASHINGTON W) — Ted Kroll I won the National Celebrities Golf I Tournament yesterday with an assortment of steady shots and a single wild one.

I ""bnt drive came on the fourth I tee of the first of the two rounds I played yesterday.

" ' Many sportsmen are already putting away their fisfr ing gear and oiling up their hunting equipment with only a few days remaining until the opening of the first gun season. The kickoff date is September 15th, when both dove and rabbit season open- Dove season continues through October 14th, while rabbit hunters will have the lei sure of a season lasting through. January 3l6t. Although the mourning dove migratory bird, no federal "ducfc stamp" is required to hunt it, bu a state hunting license is a must Hunters are also reminded tha their guns must be plugged llml ting, them to a three shell capacity No rifles are allowed for dove hunting, only shotguns. Hunting lours are from 12 noon until sun set and the daily bag and possession limit is eight. Rabbit hunters are not only permitted a longer season, but their ;un regulations are also more lib- iral, with either shotguns or rifles permitted. You can also hunt them rom dawn to dark, although spot- ighting of any animal is absolutely irohiblted. The daily bag and pos- lession ight. limit on rabbits Is also Squirrels The great majority of hunters vill keep their guns cased until October 1st, when squirrel season ipens for its three-months run lirough December 31st- The pros- ects for squirrels this year are etter than fair despite the second onsecutive year of drouth con- itions in the state.

Kroll's 72-hole total was 281 — 7 under par. through December 31st. The prospects lor squirrels this year are better than fair despits the second year of drouth conditions in the state. The Commission's recent action to open five game refuges to hunting on October 1st should con- siderbaly stimulate squirrel hunting activity this year. But a. good squirrel dog is still the best insurance for luck in this sport. Don't forget to buy a dog license for it. The daily bag and possession limit for squirrels will also be eight. Deer hunting prospects will also be the best ever this year with the opening of the same five refuges to deer hunting. The first period of the season will begin ovember 9th and continue through the 14th. The second period will be December 14th-19th, inclusive. A kill of one legal buck will be allowed for each of the two periods. New gun regulations for deer hunting prohibit the use of all rifles .of 22 caliber, and under, including 218 Bee, 219 Zipper, 22 Hornet, 22 Savage, 220 Swift, and 222 Remington, and all rifles using rimfire cartridges. In addition, all shotguns of 410 and smaller are .prohibited in hunting deer, and hunters using shotguns for hunting deer must use buckshot not smaller than No.'' 4, or ball shot or rifle slugs only. Ducks This year's duck season in Arcansas has been scheduled to begin at noon on November 17th and ;o continue through January 10th. The daily bag limit will be four ducks with a possession limit of eight, the same as last year. A bag imlt of five geese will again be «1- owed. However, hunters are restricted in this limit to either two white-fronted geese or two Canada 1 geese, or a combination of one each of these species. Duck production In the northern breeding grounds will be about equal to that of last year, with the success of this 'ear's season largely depending on water conditions. Federal "duck tamps" are required, and shotguns must be plugged. Seventh of a Series. By MURRAY OLDEKMAN NBA Staff Correspondent ATLANTA (NBA) _ The Ram- blin' Wreck from Georgia Tech, carrying an unbeaten skein of 26 games, can't hope to be as good as last year after the loss of such All- America stalwarts as George Morris and Hal Miller and All-Conferenca Buck Martin and Pete Brown. But, and this is no balm to ths rest of the Southeastern Conference, the retrogression isn't severe enough to keep Tech from being the preseason favorite. Bobby Dodd has too much horsepower for the Engineers to sputter —like prime All-America candidate Leon Hardeman at halfback, running mate Billy Teas, fullback Glenn Turner, linebacker Larry Morris, end Sam Hensley, guard Orv Ve- reen'and on and on, Only quarterback looks like a misfire since Bill Brigman, last year's top kick, has lost out in two-way play; and Pepper Rodgers, the usurper to the job, doesn't have the adroitness to go with his leadership.
