2-Algono (Iq.) Upper De« MoinM Tuesday, Jan. 10, 1967 inhabit Hokkaido's mountains. Whatever he is, O'Riley is one fantastic linebacker. It seems to make no difference what color jersey a player wears, if he is anywhere near the ball, down be goes." O'Riley was penalized at one time in the game for ' 'biting the face mask' 1 — and at halftime was accused of eating the opposition's flanker back. Rickey's treatment of the "dream" game Is wonderful reading. Thanks, Tom I HAVE been following with some interest the problem with cattle in India. Most "recent development Is this — Bans on the slaughter of cows are now up to the country's individual states, BUT the central government will work vigorously to get all 17 states to adopt such a bail. All but six of India's states now prohibit slaughter of cows, which are considered sacred by Hindus. Now for a little more background on the problem. A couple of years ago, we had a talk with Gerald Frank!, former well-known Irvington cattle raiser, who had made a trip to India. He told us that the ban against slaughter of cows there was resulting in many deaths by starvation every day. It seems the cattle, which could furnish much-needed food for the population? are eating all of the vegetation in India, so the people have less and less to eat all the time. So, the cattle are furnishing a two-pronged problem — they can't be eaten and they are eating food that would normally be eaten by the people. JACKIE Kennedy's decision to come out in a short skirt sure resulted in a lot of publicity. When she appeared at a New York restaurant wearing a skirt that ended four inches above her knee, many probably gasped in astonishment. Personally, we don't see why she is any different than anyone else - and might be better equipped for the short skirts than most I -?AT a birthday party, one guest walked up to the honored lady and presented her with a huge electric fan, and announced in cooing tones, "Here, darling, this will help you blow out the candles on your cake." ONE of the best sports stories we've seen for a while came out the day of the Gator Bowl football game between Tennessee and Syracuse at Jacksonville, Fla. The U. S. Weather Bureau sent out a special forecast on the Nashville, Tenn. circuit, which read - "Partly cloudy to occasionally cloudy with mild temperatures. High at game time G5 degrees. Light easterly winds less than 15 miles per hour. And Tennessee 21, Syracuse 10." They didn't miss the score far either. Tennessee actually won, 18-12. GOT a note and clippings on the annual Sake Bowl game (supposedly held in Tokyo's Fujiyama Stadium before 101,000 screaming fans Dec. 29) from Tom Zender, our lone subscriber at Brecksville, Ohio, and a former .Ugonan — and wish all area sports fans could read the story. It's tremendous. Written by BUI Rickey of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, who according to an editor's note "has been called the dean of Asian football writers among other things and has covered every Sake Bowl game to date exclusively for Plain Dealer readers." THE Sake Bowl game is played up for several days preceding the kick-off - and this year a picture of Hickey showed him propping his own old biplane as he began the flight to Tokyo. COVERAGE of the "game" is complete, and Rickey's choice of names for the players is wonderful. Fellows like Kim Dip Thong, Lee Lip Tik, Kim Sun Ping and Regis (The Bear) O'Riley played for the two teams involved - the Hokkaido Hurricanes and Pusan State Panthers. The Panthers "won" the game, 28-24, scoring 21 points in the final 15 minutes to snare the victory as Thong hit 22 straight passes good for three TDs. WE'VE got to quote Hickey's description of O'Riley. "Son of Ireland's charge d'affaire for culture at Sapporo, O'Riley, only a sophomore, made such a commanding figure when he first ambled onto the field that he caused the kickoff to be delayed for 10 minutes. That was the time it took for game officials to turn down a protest by the other team that be was ineligible because he was not human. And there were more than a few supporters of the idea among neutral observers in the press box. O'Riley is indeed an odd-looking Irishman. Possessed of a long, snoutish face and covered with dark brown hair, one has only to look at him once to understand how he got his nickname." "HIS coach insists O'Riley gets his hairy appearance from Ms mother, a member of the primitive race of people who HOW about printing names of all recipients of ADC, Poverty and other funds — just as they do the delinquent tax list each year? It would make as much (or more) sense, and would point the finger at some who are not trying very hard to* make a go of It rather than at some who are and might not have the money to pay their taxes I Andacoupon system, replacing the checks now issued, might be advisable, too. -?- RECEIVED a suggestion from a reader the other day that It might be a good idea for the State Legislature (which is apparently going to study all kinds of safety ideas for our highways) to consider some kind of night time lighting for the rear (and front, of course) of farm equipment. This reader very nearly had what might have been a serious mishap between his auto and the rear of a tractor when a single clear, bright light mounted on the back of the farm machine made it appear to be an auto or truck with one headlight out, approaching from the other direction. Now, solution of such problems seems to be tough, but maybe some investi- gation of a type of lighting for the rear of farm machinery might be a good idea, worked in some way with other safety plans now being considered.
