Royal plans two lineup changes to remedy the situation, returning James Shilllngburg to guard after a season at tackle and giving fullback Mike Dowdle a shot at the right guard spot.

Ited ike nc After Friday's Harvester-Paid Duro basketball „ asked myself the question: "Mow long has it been since I'V< 'seen this good a game?" 4 * The answer, I decided after searching my memory baeJ into the dark ages, was about six years. Games like the one Friday are usually reserved to championship playoffs and the like. But there was no sucf incentive. True, the Harvesters did cinch the district cham pionship, but it was a foregone concluson that they Wouk win it (the championship) anyway. They were three game; ahead of Amarillo. . t A . . ,, As for Palo Duro, they were playing for nothing but the honor and the glory of beating the Harvesters. BU< they competed as fiercely as if a district, indeed a state, championship were at stake for them. \ I've heard comments that the game was rough. weltt it was. It was very, very rough.
