Fayetteville To Tangle With Springfield, Mo. Bulldogs Seek To Get Back On Victory Trail One Victory Over Visitors Already Gained This Season The Fayetteville Bulldogs, with but three days of rest in which to lick their wounds, take on the Springfield, Mo., High quintet tonight, at Root Gym. Fayetteville lost its second game of the season last Tuesday In the Fort Smith Grizzlies, 53-49. . Tonight's contest will be Hie second engagement of the season between the two teams. Fayette- .ville won an earlier 7am* played at Springfield, 38-35. As against Fort Smith the 'Dogs can expect lo face a switching man-lo-man defense tonight. With adequate man-power this defense is generally regarded liy opposing coaches as the best way to stop the hard-driving teams of Coach Glenn Stokenberry. In the first meeting between Springfield and Fayetteville, on December 18, the Springfield team used its switching man-to-man effectively, keeping the shorter Bulldogs out from under the basket much of the time. .In that game, however, the Bulldogs, led by Russell McConnell, who scored 15 points, hit exceptionally \vell from the outside and took a commanding lead at the end of the first half. From that point on Fayetteville used an extremely slow attack waiting for |ood shots close to the basket, killing time and Springfield's chances. ' ' The visitors tonight will have a decided height advantage, averaging several inches more per man than Fayetteville. The 'Doff. held their own in rebounding in the first game, aided .materially by Pome excellent work on the part of Billy Parker. Parker has since suffered a wrist injury anc Has been far less effective in al departments of play. This has hurt the Fayetteville team since Parker ranked as the team's best rebounder prior to his injury. Glboney, a forward, and fiodg- frs, a guard, were the top scorers against' Fayetteville in the first game. Each made 10 points. However, the Springfield learn Is gen- lirally a higher scoring outf than its 3S points against Fayetteville would indicate and with Fiyetteville's defense weaker now and Springfield's attack probably better with the additional experience gained this season higher scoring game is in prospect. Tonight's game will slarl at o'clock' at Root Gymnasium. Olympic Gomes Officially Opened By Norwegian Princess February , Sports Card Feb. 15--Bulldog* vs. Sprint- field, Me., here, mi 8 * m. . .

By BEN PHLEGER · Oslo-(#)-Princess Ranghild of Norway, slender, dark and 21, far- nially opened the sixth winter Olympic games in Bislett Stadium today. The attractive ski-loving princess put the gigantic winter sports show on the road officially a f t e r . a brilliant parade of competitors | from .30 nations. In an unusual departure from custom, the competition already was underway by the time the pomp and ceremony of .the regal opehing show was staged in the 30,000 seal stadium. Mrs. Andrea Mead Lawrence, 19-year-old daredevil from 1 Rutland, VI., won the first gold meck-! of the 1952 fames yesterday when she outclassed the world's best to lake the women's gianl slalom ski race by a wide margin. The Oslo games, the biggest winter sports carnival ever held, have drawn 1,178 competitors and officials. But not ail of them were on hand for the official opening. Played Hookey Mrs. Lawrence herself played hookey to watch her young husband, David, take his chances in the men's, giant slalom af Noref- jell, 70 miles up in the mountains north nf Oslo. ' Because of the distance none of the competitors in the men's giant slalom were able to attend the show. The stadium, located in the heart of this Norwegian capital,' Is famous both at a track and field grounds and as a speed skating track. Today it was aglow with the flags of Olympic nations, and the gay uniforms of the conlestants stood out againsl the thin cover of snow. As a climax to the ceremonies, blonde Norwegian fkier entered the stadium carrying the Olympic torch, which had been lighted at Moregdal, shrine of modern skiing, end set ablaze th* Olympic fire that will burn throughout the games. The United Stales team, as usual, wore bright white jackets, white caps and blue pants.

Farming A Growing Source Of Business For Banks Washington-(/P)-Farmin|z is becoming a big source of business for the nation's banks and other lending institutions. Lending to farmers to carry on their operations has. grown into a lour bll lion a year enterprise, nearly four limes 15 years ago. Reporling- Ihis sharp increase Ihe Agriculture Department says it reflects "widespread mechanization, greater use of Hme^ fertilizer, better conservation practices, Improved varieties of crops and livestock, and better, methods of control of insects and diseases." All these increase the cash outlays required. ' The shift to meohanical power since World War I is shown by these increases: Tractors 1,500 per cent, motor trucks 1,600 per cent, combines ]f),900 per cent, corn pickers 4,000 per cent, milking machines 1,200 per cent. Most, farmers require .credit to buy these new machines, fertilizers and seed. Twenty-five years ago mosl farmers produced their own seed. They bought lillle lime or fertiliser. Work stock and feed often were home-produced. The trend toward a higher standard of living on the farm also tends, the department says, to increase the farm family's need for cash. "As farms become more specialized, less food, fuel and -lumber are produced for home consump- :ion," it says. "The extension of farm electrification and the development of electrical appliances have combined to widen this ave- nue of expenditure." "These, as well as other developments which have now become .firmly' integrated in the life of farmers, will not be given up easily even though farm income declines. ]n the long run, the higher costs of maintaining Ihis standard of living will be mel out of income, but because of Ihe seasonal and irregular nature of farm receipts, a greater use of credit mny oflen he necessary." Furthermore, the ncpartmcnl says, farmers arc less inclined than formerly to defer purchases mnil they have saved money for them.
