Even a good dog won't be able to endure over a few hours of hunting after a summer of inactivity unless he gets some pre-season exercise. A trip to the vet is in order, both for a physical check-up and for necessary booster shots and worming. With proper pre-season conditioning, both you and your dog will be able to put in a full day of hunting come November. This is a good time to make sure that your guns are in top , safety condition and to start getting your shooting eye back in shape by practicing on some moving targets. Many of the sportsmen's clubs throughout the state have trap and skeet ranges. If you are not a mem- ber, now would be a good time to join, not only for the shooting facilities for , the fellowship with others who share your interests in the out-of-doors. hunters need to shape that is.

The championship game, between winners of the first night games, will be staged at 9 p.m. on December 22nd. The tournament will be played at the Owensboro Sportscenter. by THE Scoring Drought Snapped The Ohio County Eagles got back on the winning track last Friday night with a 26-0 whitewashing of Breckinridge County. The win, only the second for the Eag!es in five outings, was a warmup for the team's big Friday night clash against Owensboro Senior. "Despite the weaker competition, our boys proved they do have an of- fensive punch. That's been one of our big problems. We seemed to have a mental block when it came to crossing the goal," Coach Jim Hunter said. Ohio County jumped out on top in the second quarter when Jeff Danks scooted across on a 15-yard run. The try for the point after failed on a a bad snap from center. The Eagles upped their advantage to 12-0 on their next possession in the second frame. Dennis Coleman capped the 50-yard drive with a two- yard plunge. Most of the drive was consumed by two sweeps and two counter plays. The point after try was blocked. Midway through the third period Coleman again topped off a 50-yard drive by going over from eight yards out. John Smith found Paul Fowler on the two-point conversion pass and the Eagles led 20-0. Late in the third quarter Roger Rock was inserted into the backfield and the stocky lineman-by-trade closed out Ohio County's scoring  Rock carried the brunt of a 40-yard drive and took the ball in from two yards out. "We were well satisfied with the overall offense and defense and the blocking was real good," Hunter said. Ohio County geared its offensive attack to the ground as evidenced by the fact Smith threw only three passes during the game. He completed one. Looking ahead to Owensboro, Hunter said his team will have to contain, the Red Devils' hard- running Lawrence Jefferson. "He has a way of quickly moving to the outside when the inside holes are plugged and he's very difficult to catch," Hunter said. The Eagle coach also voiced con- cern for Owensboro's overall strength. "They have a good team but we feel we can beat them with a good effort," the first-year head coach said. BAIT FISHING vs ARTIFICIAL LURES i Air Believe it or not, bait fishing (sometimes called "still" fishing) requires a better knowledge of fish habits than do most forms of fishing artificials. In fact, many ex- perienced anglers don't use bait simply because they can't catch fish with it. Natural baits -- minnows, worms, crafish, insects and others -- are best used with a spinning rod, fly rod or sturdy cane pole Sure, it takes practice and a constant changing of technique but with patience anyone can learn the basics of bait fishing. So don't scoff at "worm dunking" until you've , | ' . . given this method a try. t s relaxing, enjoyable and more often than not, vlril] put a "heap of good eatin' " on the table. 27 _- Certified to Serve and that s an obhgatlon we take seriously Our operating, authorization says we are to furnish electric power to any- one in our certified area who asks for it. Even if it means stringing a line several miles to serve one consumer. So, as our area grows with ,people and industry, we will grox. Our greatness will come only from serv- ing right here in this area. And we think that could really be something. Let's grow ! Together ! Ix 389- 311l Fairview Dr., Owensboro, Kv. is on the loose. Dr. Hal Board, a newcomer to Ohio County, threw a scare into area golfing favorites after the first round of play in the fourth annual Hillcrest Invitational Tournament Saturday before fading in Sunday's final round. Dr. Board, playing the Owensboro municipal course for the first time, carded rounds of 37-35 Saturday for a good two-over par 72. The score was good enough to put him in the championship flight and in the company of such linksters as Art Jordan, Bobo Foster, Ken Smith and Corky Norcia. The new Ohio County dentist went seven over par on the final 18 holes Sunday and finished seven strokes off the pace set by Foster who won the championship flight with a two-over- par 142. Kenny Newcom, also playing in the championship flight, posted a 73 Saturday but blew himself out of contention with rounds of 40-41 Sunday for a heavy 81. He finished with a 154 total. Lacy Blackburn won the fifth flight in a sudden-death playoff and Dr. Jimmy Burden finished second in the fourth flight with a 166. He was one stroke off the pace of Allen Howard. You won't believe it, but this old boy was the leader in the club house at one point. I was in the foursome going off first in the fifth flight and my score was the first to go up. It held up until the official scorer posted the second score. There was a lot of talk at Hillcrest throughout the tournament about sandbaggers and what to do about them. Nobody seemed to have a solution. I love the game of golf and like to play in tournaments. However, my caliber of play in no way resembles the play of a tournament golfer. Still, there are many duffers in the same class who would like to think they are competitive in a tournaments', lowest flight. Sandbaggers eliminate this trend of thought. There is nothing fair about a player who normally shoots in the B0's to pad his score in the qualifying round and then come back on the final 18 holes with the almost certain knowledge he can improve his score by the alloted 10 percent and go home with the marbles. In other words the 80 shooter can sandbag his opening round to a 90, get himself posted in the lowest flight, shoot an 80 on the final day and win the flight with a 170 total. The duffer who normally shoots a 97 and somehow manages to come in with an 87 the final day still is left out in the cold. Most pros in a given area have a general knowledge of the players within that area. It is for this reason I think it would be more appropriate to flight a tournament before it actually starts. Say, for instance, that Pro Willy Dilly knows that Joe Blow is an 80 shooter. He could put all of those Joe Blows in a one flight and all of the known 70 shooters in another and so on. false handicaps and that puts them in the same class with sandbaggers. Most pros are keenly aware of sandbagging tatics but would frown on my suggestion. For one thing it probably would result in a loss of players. But, I would rather play in a tournament where I had some semblance of a chance to win than in one where my only chance would be if all other participants drop out. I am not being critical of Pro. Melvin Blacklock at Hillcrest or the good people in Ohio County who stage tournaments. These people . . . un- til another method is devised ... have no control over sandbaggers. I used to think that golfers were members of a close-knit sporting fraternity who placed a lot of em- phasis on the word honor. I no longer am sure. I never expect to win a golf tour- nament but I hate to think that my chances are made even more im- possible by those who allow greed to substitute for fairness. Even with this condemnation of sandbagging, I will have to make an exception in a certain case. One Ohio County golfer I am proud to classify as a friend did sandbag in the Owensboro tournament but he did not do it because he needed one of the prizes or because he wanted to knock another golfer with less tolent out of chance to win. He was angered by the sandbagging tatics of certain players in two other recent tournaments and simply set out on a course to give them a dose of their own medicine. He did just that. The sweetness of success was shortlived. After many, many weeks of trying to out-guess Conrad Francis, I finally succeeded and felt that things were going my way. It was not to be. Connie came right back this past weekend and did it to me again, tte was right on 16 of 20 and I could manage only 14. But, this is another week and maybe.., just maybe... We both like Union County over Daviess County, Apollo over Hen- derson City, Henderson County over Webster County, Madisonville over Hopkinsville, Paducah Tilghman over Caldwell County, Lexington Bryan Station over Ashland, Taylor County over Breckinridge County, Russellviile over Crittenden County, Alabama over Vanderbilt, Tennessee over Auburn, Florida over Mississippi State, Kentucky over Indiana, North Carolina State over Georgia, North Carolina over Missouri, Notre Dame over Purdue, Western Ken- tucky over East Tennesseee and Penn State over Iowa. On opposite sides of the fence, C onme likes Ohio County over Owensboro Senior, Franklin-Simpson over Mayfield and Southern \\; Mississippi over Mississippi. I would like nothing better than for our Eagles to trounce Owensboro but I think Ohio County is a year or two away from handling the Red Devils. Make me wrong Eagles. I also like Mayfield over Franklin- Simpson and Mississippi over Southern Mississippi despite the fact Die Miss is havig an off year and Mississippi Soutiaern is enjoying an undefeated season.
