WEDNESDAY, SKPT. 23,1953 BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS. MONDAY, AUGUST 31, 1955 PAGE SEVEN j^* After Korean Combat Williams Is Changed ; By JOE REICHLER BOSTON (AP) — Those who claim to know him best insist Ted Williams is a change- n since his return from Korea. v The Williams before the war was known, of course, to express, by word or'gesture his resentment o£ and contempt for abusive fans. He was known to wrangle with newspaper men and photographers and could be downright rude on occasion. The Korean War veteran of to-< day is far less to susceptible criticism. His antagonistice attitude has given way to a Jive-and-let-Hve attitude. He has become much more tolerant of others. He has learned to accept people for what they are and not what he would like them to be. It may be that Williams 1 several narrow escapes from, death while flying jets over Communist lines lias made him more human. Williams blotts a fuse when anyone suggests he may have changed. "I'm the same guy I was last year, five years ago and 10 years ago." he reminds you. "I haven't changed in the least. I still think that goes for you, too. They don't like me because I will tell them what I think of them. Why not? They write what they think of me." Matured Ted smiled a little as he said it- j But he looked straight at you as he always does when he's talking. Williams would be surprised how- j ever, to learn that most newspapermen like him- The fans generally, and those in Boston specifically, idolize him despite his out- I ward indifference to them. He nev- jKwas more popular than he is to- "Nobody boos Williams any I more," said sports writer Bob Hol[ brook of the Boston Globe. "AH you hear are cheers when- I ever he comes up to bat. He still doesn't tip his hat and still ignores them. But the fans don't | care. He's their boy." "He's 1 the most changed person I've ever seen," said Jack Malan- veteran baseball writer of the Boston Post, "He has grown up overnight. He has matured and he has become much more tolerant." Osceola Readies For W. Memphis OSCEOLA — The Osceola Seminoles began preparations for their third game of the. infant season yesterday for their annual battle with the West Memphis Blue Devils. The game will be played at West Memphis Friday night. After two games the Seminoles most newspapermen are jerks- and have „ w record] hav[ng . , ost to Blytheville in their opening game 39-25 and nosing the Paragould Bulldogs 6-0 Friday night in Osceola. Lopez Said Hired By Cincinnati NEW YORK I/PI — Al Lopez will [leave the second place Cleveland IJ^rfldians to manage the second di| vision Cincinnati Redlegs next I year, it was learned today. Lopez is expected to be succeed- I ed by George Tebbette, former 1 Cleveland catcher who currently is manager of the Indianapolis club of the American Association. I Indianapolis is a farm team of the f Indians. In Cincinnati. Gen. Manager Oabe I Paul of the Redlegs said, "no com- 1 ment," when asked if Lopez had I been hired. The Cincinnati job was left, va- j cant last week when Rogers Horns| by was fired. Ldpez, about to finish his third I season as Cleveland manager, never finished lower than second. His club was runner-up to the New York Yankees in 1951 and 1952 with I identical 93-61 records and ctir- I rently is second to the Yankees for the third straight time.

The Crittenden County eleven won over Parkin 14-p in their opening tilt and Friday night ran roughshod over the Shawnee Indians 31-0. In their 1952 encounter at Hale Field in Osceola the Devils scored in the final seconds of play to take home a 19-13 victory and have most of this same ball club back this year. The Seminoles, playing a surprisingly good brand of ball, are out to avenge the 1952 defeat and will match their split T attack against West Memphis' No-Name Formation, developed by Coach Elmer Smith at Monticello College. Coach Pel Austin, outstanding baseball player in the Cotton States League, is again at the helm for the West Memphis team. They play a wide open sort of footbal mixing in the spread formatioi with their No-Name Offense. Undoubtedly the Crittenden Coun ty team will be out to protec their record of not having been scored upon, and the Semlnoles will be out to break that record TMs should make an interesting ball game. Wade Rogers, Seminole junior quarterback, will open at that spo again Friday night with backfiek help from Bulldozer Bonnie Dunn at the right half post, Bonnie Shoe make in the fullback slot and Bob by Stillwell. Stillwell has been out standing on both offense and defense this year. In the front wall, Coach Bill Seal and his aide, James Daggett, wil have Ken Cole and Larry Hulsey at the end posts, Russ Thomason and Ted Nunley at the tackle positions and Murrell Warhurst and Paul Goble flanking Center Dowell Harlan. Osceola's forward wall played an outstanding game against Para gould Friday night and proved thei? ability was something to cope with on both ffense and defense.

NEW YORK — (NEA) — Fish •re subjects of many moods, whlnu and fancies. You need i variety of bait to trap them. One fish will go for a wobbling spoon or a large live minnow. Another can't resist a Juicy night- crawler. Sometimes a spinning outfit will get the best results. The thing about fishing is not how many you catch or what kind, but how you catch them. Now Howard East, a fisherman by preference and a groceryman by necessity, tells you to throw away all that bait and those arti- ficials. Eager to share his genius with others, East was moved to literary composition. He wrote a letter to a sardine company in Maine, with which he does business. "We were fishing from a row-, boat on Delaware Bay," he wrote. "We have been fishing there for nine sy t a r s. Sometimes we do good, but this year It has been slow. "It was around 11 o'clock, the last of the flood tide. We hadn't caught any fish so I opened the sardines. I have a light luneh. A thought came to me. "I had heard about oil to put on your bait so I didn't say anything to my wife. I dip my bait in the oil, put it down and start to catch fish. "The wife says. 'What are you doing, putting your bait in sardine oil?' "I drop her bait In the oil and she starts to catch fish, too. There are. about 22 boats fishing around us. The other fishermen holler over and want to know ..what kind of bait we're using. I tell 'em what I did. We caught 32 fish, more than the other boats combined. "Next time I plan to try using a white rag dipped in sardine oil as bait and see if. the Ilsh Know the difference. "I suggest you advertise my discovery. It probably would increase your business 100 per cent. I have told lots of my friends what happened and I am sold out of sar- dim\s. "It will sell more sardines than people eat." Long Lease London's Lambeth Palace, residence of the Archbishop of Canter- j bury, was built on grounds owned by the See of Canterbury since about 1190. The crypt, dating from the 12th century, is beneath the 13th century chapel and constitutes the oldest portion of the building. The average American eats 388 egg.s annually.

Conoco Slips! with TCP is brought to you by special arrangement with Shell Oil Company. TCP is Shell's trademark for the remarkable additive originally developed for aviation fuel. Combustion deposits 'drastically reduce power When you drive your car, deposits constantly build up on spark plugs and in the combustion chambers. These deposits can "cheat" you of power in two ways. First, they short-circuit spark plugs—causing them to mis-fire. Second, deposits in the combustion chambers cause fuel to ignite before it should. This is called pre-ignition or "wild ping." The combined effect of mis-firing and pre-ignition is loss of power and wasted gas. •Patent ipplid la by Sh«U Oil CompMj Gasoline.
