Juco Faces Dragons in Crucial Tilt I .,... Garden City — only team with tmich of a chance to jwtteh Dodffe City in the Western Division Jayhawk Juco I Conference basketball race — faces a showdown battle I tonight. I Coach Dale Headers' Broncbusters play at Hutchin- Iso'h JC in a key league battle. Garden must win to keep I its hopes alive for a share of the division crown. High-flying Dodge is a 6-0 in the conference and 16-1 overall. Garden has a 4-2 league record and could possibly grab a share of the crown if Dodge falters. Deerfield Cops League Reserve Basketball Title TAN FARE By Walt D KENDALL — Deerfield High I pulled away in the final half here Thursday night to down host Kendall 33-21 and win the championship of the Western Arkansas Valley League tournament for I B : leam basketballers. Shallow Water dropped Cool- |5dge 57-32 to win third place in I the four-team, two-night tourney. Pierceville and Manter are also WAVL members. But their enrollment is not large enough to [ have B-teams. In the title game, Kendall led I 8-5 at the end of the first period and 13-10 at intermission. But the Bobcat reserves went ice- I cold and made just four points I in'each of the final two frames. Deerfield led 21-17 at the final [ turn and pulled away steadily. I The winners had a 15-10 field- l goal edge and converted 3 of 12 I free throws. Kendall hit just 1 of 13 at the line. Danny Novack led the champions with 8 points. Larry Graham added 7 and Wayne West 6. Gale Louk paced the losers with 6. 'Inclement weather kept the size of the final-night crowd down. Only about 200 fans showed up — smaller than Wednesday's opening-night crowd. Coolidge and Shallow Water were tied 12-12 and 19-19 at the [ •first two stops in the third-place game. But the winners had a id-point scoring bulge in the third to pull away, leading 3727 at the final turn. Shallow Water was paced by Duane Phillips with 19 points. D. L. Miller added 10. Carl Nobles led Coolidge with 9 points and Dave King 7. Another feature of final night was the annual WAVL free-throw tourney. It included varsity cag- ers from member schools. Th« two finalists from Wednesday night were Jim Zubeck of Deerfield and Pat Barrett of Coolidge. Each shot 25 times Thursday, alternating blocks of five shots. The two were tied going into their final five shots. Barrett shot first and missed his 25th attempt, finishing 20x25 overall. Zubeck then hit all of his last five to win th championship with 21 of 25. DKKRFIKLD — D. Novack 4-0-4-8; West 3-0-0-6: J. Cox 1-0-2-2; Floivr 2-0-2-4: T.

First round matches were this afternoon, and grappling resumes this evening at 7 p.m. To be determined this evonin.fl are the top two boys in each of the twelve brackets, those who will meet in the finals tomorrow night. Fourteen teams are Invlolved in the two-day event, which runt through two Saturday sessions. Afternoon bouts «tart at 1 p.m. with the finals slated for 7 p.m. Hutch has a 2-3 conference record and is virtually elliminated. But the Blue Dragons could practically take Garden out of the race with a victory tonight. Other three conference teams have little chance now: El Dorado is 34, Arkansas City 1-4, and Pratt 1-4. Garden takes an overall 10-8 record into the Hutch Sports Arena tonight. The Busters have won five in a row since losing to Dodge. Included was a 73-68 decision over Hutch here on January 24. Moadort will probably start his usual five tonight: 6-7 frosh Bill Morgan; forwards Kent Martin and Willie Shine, and guards Richard Smith and Louis Horton. Hutch is 11-5 overall. Other losses have been to Parsons (7066), Chanute (91-85), Pratt (91»0), and Dodge City (87-72). The 15-point beating at Dodge last Saturday was one of the worst in recent seasons for Hutch. The Dragons will be trying to rebound from that one tonight. Coach Sam Butterfield probably will go with the same starters who opened here last month. Postman is 6-5 frosh Ed Tucker of Topeka. Tucker may play at a forward spot tonight in an effort to overcome his foul troubles. Forwards will be Dick Myers (6-4 Peaibody frosh) and Larry Benson (6-3 Herington soph). Guards will be Bob George (5-10 Colby soph) and Randy. Elmore (6-0 Stafford soph).

His resignation is effective at the end of the season. He will stay on as assistant football coach, golf coach, guidance counselor, and teacher. No replacement has been named. Conner is a graduate of Fort Hays State College. His first team here in 1960-61 was one of the best in Dighton school history. He replaced Robert Gumm as Hornet coach. That fMton his club snapped out of the mid-season doldrums to win 6 of 7 games in a streak. Although the squad finished third in the tough Western Kansas Education Assn., it swept through the district tourney at LaCrosse. The Hornets then dropped both starts in the regional tourney at Hays, losing each game by three points. The team finished 14-9 overall. In 1961-62 his Hornet team slumped after a good start, winning only 3 of its last 12 games. That season they finished 9-12 overall. Last winter Dighton was 5-13 in basketball. This winter the Hornets won their first three, then lost four of five. But the squad has now won four of its last five, is 8-5 overall — and in contention for a share of the WKKA crown. Greot Plains Leogu* Liberal, Eagles in Finals ULYSSES — It will be Liberal .against Hugoton here Saturday night for the championship of the annual Ulysses tournament for ninth-grade basketball teams. Those two clubs won their semifinal contests Thursday night, both games resluting in narrow margins. Liberal nudged Sublette in * four-point thriller, 41-37. Hugoton put on a big rally lor a three- point, 46-43 decision over Ulysses. Saturday's title clash is set for I p.m. It will be preceded at 6:30 | j p.m. by the third-place game matching Sublette and Ulysses. Another good-sized crowd was on hand for the Thursday doubleheader. No games are scheduled tonight. Liberal led Sublette by about four points most of the way, although the gap narrowed at times. Scores at the ends of the periods were 9-5, 19-1$ and 26-25. The winners had » 16-13 field- goal margin and converted 9 of 16 free throws. Sublette made 11 of 23 at the line. Ed Cox led Liberal Dennis HUM topped Sublette wittt 15. Ulysses led Hugoton 9-8 at the end of the first period and by 3228 at the final turn. Hugotou held a 19-7 intermission margin. But Hugoton won it with an 18-11 bulge in the fourth frame. With, three minutes to go, Ulysses led by five points—'but the Tigers missed their shots and lost the key rebounds. Hugoton won the game on free shots, for it trailed by 16-17 from the held. The winners converted 14 of 25 free throws, Ulysses just 8 of 20. Ronnie Ak'x.nder led Hugoton with 20 points, and 6-3 Charles Patton added 10. To^s for Ulysses were Erni • Wood with 21 points and Koger Bnlton with 13.

Host Holcomo defeated Syracuse 44-28. Satanta forfeited its scheduled game 'with Lakin. Driving conditions in the Satanta area were hazardous Thursday. The tourney is being played on a round-robin basis each of the four teams play every opponent once only. Final standings will be determined on an overall win-. loss basis. Thursday's two games had originally been scheduled Monday. They were delayed then because of the big snowstorm. Th» HwM-night tourney winds no Saturday.' Satanta mixes with Syracuse at 7 p.m. Holcomb faces Lakin at 8:30 p.m. That game will be for the title — for each has won its two games here. Holcomb led Syracuse the fun route Thursday: by 8-7, 25-13, and 34-20 at the ends of the periods. The winners had a 19-11 bill: ge in field goals and converted 6 of 10 free throws. Syracuse made 6 of 9 at the line. Top scorer for Holcomb was Alan Rupp with 13 points, Ken Golay scored 12 and Ralnh Adams 8. Archie Oliver led Syracuse with 11. Garv Baldwin and Glen i Hess each added 7. Weather Halts Cagers Again Inclement weather and hazardous road conditions plagued Garden City Junio High's eighth-grade basketball schedule again Thursday afternoon. The Baby Buffs were to have entertained Liberal's eighths on Monday. Both A-team and B-team games were scheduled. They were postooned to Thursday because of the big snowstorm. Thursday the games could not be n'aved, either: bad driving conditions again around Liberal. Whether or not the twin bill will be made up later or canceled has not been determined. Coach Don Powell's Garden club will comoete in the annual West Central Kansas League tournev for eighth graders at Lamed the week of February 16. If Garden loses its opening- round game in the tourney, it probably will reschedule Liberal in a make-up later that week. But if'Garden wins and continues to play in the toumey, the Liberal contests will be cancelled and dropped. Co/feae laskotbofl By TH! AftQCIATfD PRESS NYU 103, Holy Cross 83 LaSalle 75,.

Bowling is on a scratch basis, with no handicaps allowed. The Peterson point system is used. Under the Peterson system, a team gets one point for each win it scores, plus another point for each 100 pins it knocks down. At the monthly session, each team bowls six games: two games each against three different teams. The league bowl? at each member house once for every team that house has entered. In other words, the eague I goes twice to Scott, Syracuse. i and Leoti, and just once to Garden and Dighlon. Last week's trip to Garden completed stops at each of the five houses. Repeat trips now round out the lea true season- Bowlers go back to Syracuse this month, to Leoti in March, and end the season at Scott City in April. Elliott Dickey of Garden City is president of the GPL, and Syracuse's Raymond Oliver is secretary. Vice president Is Gene Biel of Leoti. Some of Southwest Kansas' finest bowling talent makes up the eight trains. Top individual game of all so far was the 280 bowled by Gene Biel of Leoti on his home lanes the second week of the season. Best six-game series by an individual was 1.9*0 pins bv Bill Fry of Scott City. That's a sparkling 209-plus average per game. At season's pnd. the chamolon- | ship- team will get a handsome jtrophv. Members of the top i squad also get individual trophies. Trophies will alto go to the two bowlers with the season's best individual game and the top individual six-game series. Schwanke's Scott City club has won 20 of its 30 games, knocking down 26,353 nins. It has 256 pin points to add to its 20 points for winning 20 games — giving it an overall Peterson point total of 285. Standings for the other seven clubs with Peterson points listed: 2.

It consists of more than 165 individual parks, and they attracted more than four million visitors last year. Most of the parks offer all the facilities a weary traveler could want — restrooms, picnic tables and shelters, fireplaces, shade, fresh water and grills. Even cut wood is provided for fireplaces. There's another distinction about Kansas' roadside parks. Overnight camping is allowed In all those which have toilet facilities. This is unique! Kansas is one of five states which allow camping in roadside parks. This brings much praise in the form of letters and notes written on registration blanks provided at each park. There are few complaints. Some remarks are humorous. On* Ohio woman once wrote that the water in a park near Hiawatha was no good. It seems ther family camped at the Hiawatha US-36 park every year on their vacation, and always had the same experience. When they put cream in their coffee, the cream would sour. She blamed it on the park's water. The brand of toilet paper at the parks was changed several months ago, when many complained that that being used was "too rough." . Although Kansas roadside parks are probably the finest in the nation, they are constantly being improved. New Interstate 70 roadside parks in Ellsworth and Ellis counties, for instance, will have flush-type toilets and electrically heated rest rooms. There will be another fine innovation. Some of the famous limestone "post rock" in that area are being salvaged from highway rights-of-way for fencing in and around the parks. The "post rock" is rapidly disappearing from the Kansas scene, and it will be nice to have some of them preserved for the viewing of farure generations. Signs explaining past uses of the "post rock" may be erected in the parks by the State Historical Society, too, in .coopera- taps Giftrifon City Telegram Friday, tobnMrf 7, W4 Hugoton Eagles Defeat Sublette HUGOTON — Tough Hugoton High led the distance here Thursday night to drop the Sublette Larks 67-55 in a non-conference basketball game. It was postponed from Tuesday because of inclement weather. Hugoton led 11-7, 29-20, and 4936 at the stops. The Eagles had a 27-21 edge from the field and each squad hit 13 free shots.

The park on the eastbound lanes in Ellsworth County also includes a unique natural "toadstool" rock. It alone should prove quite an attraction to motorists. * * * A person who writes about th« outdoors in Kansas must lean heavily on the able shoulders of Kansas Forestry, Fish and Gam« Commission personnel. The men who make up this large organization have been cussed and discussed, ridiculed and praised by sportsmen for many years. I had the opportunity last week of visiting with just about every man in the fish and game organ* ization. They were kind enough to invite me to their annual Department Training School at the beautiful Rock Springs 4-H Ranch south of Junction City. It was a pleasure to share part of one day and an evening with the many game protectors, biologists, park superintendents and department heads of the agency. To a man, they offered me their aid and assistance in my outdoor work. They are a fine, dedicated group of men, doing a tremendous job. More of our citizens, and especially our sportsmen, shuld lean on shoulders a little more. They like to be of help, if you'll give them a chance. * * * SHOTS AND SINKERS — Game protectors report fishing good for channel cat and crappie on lakes and streams in the state where ice is breaking, or there is a patch of open water. . . . Leon Hopkins, Lincoln game protector, apparently didn't care for the late hours of talk (and noise, he says) by other protectors at the state meeting. He took his bedroll out of a dormitory and spent a night in my new El Dorado pickup-camper. . . . Small world department: One of the game protectors at the annual meeting was Bud Cullins, Sedan, a native of Peabody. He was a college roommate of mine in 1048, and we hadn't seen each other since that time. . . . I've discovered that winter camping is fun, most of the time. I spent enjoyable nights in parks at Marysville, Rock Springs and Hiawatha last week. Another night was only partially enjoyable. While camping in a roadside park at Walton, my camper ran out of butane, which fires the furnace, at two in the morning. Five blankets didn't keep me warm, but kept me from freezing. . . . Crapple are hitting well, it's reported, at the Parsons city lake on jigs and live minnows, and a few big ones were taken last week at the heated dock at Toronto. . . . Speaking of crappie, Mrs. Paul Doub, Neodesha, has been presented a trophy for catching the largest crappie at the Toronto dock last year — a two pound, seven ounce dandy. Another trophy awaits the top catch of 1964. . . . I hope to see many of you at the Wichita Sport, Boat and Travel Show, Feb. 11-16. SEAT BELTS Installed 7 Af) Most Pr.
