This year it should be a hum- dinger. The district 6-AA title will be riding on the outcome. Winters lays on the line a per- fect season record, nine wins to no losses. Ballinger lays on the.line a near-perfect record, eight wins tp one loss. Tradition gives Ballinger the edge. It has won more of the games than has Winters best we can determine Ballinger had taken all but about three in the last 20 or so years. But this week Winters, we should warn Ballinger, has come upon a new secret weapon. A couple of Winters exes now in the University of Texas, Col- lier Randolph and Bill Little, are credited with suggesting it. It is an old, sometimes surefire, trick U-T has for breaking jinx- es, they say. To do in a football enemy, you bum red candles. That is the notion and the idea is spreading. Ballinger had best beware. Winters stores, it is reported, are selling out of red candles. Pity the fellow this friday who is both a football fan and a hunter. On that one and the same day the deer season opens and high school football reaches one of its climaxes. The choice may be not in Fredericksburg and not in Brady. Back some months ago when the grid schedule was being ar- ranged Fredericksburg looked ahead and noted that the '62 hunting season would begin on a Friday, the same Friday it would play Brady. Brady'Supt C. A. Reynolds says Fredericksburg suggested the game be advanced a day and Brady agreed. The game is set for this Thursday, the 15th. Both schools will close Friday for hunting. The coming of deer season brings from County Game War- den Ernest Bauman a reminder to those who hunt in Taylor County that they will have two excess deer tags on their license. No killing of doe in this coun- ty this year despite the bonus tag that appears on the license. One buck is the limit locally, Bauman says, one buck and one turkey. Deer census data tabulated by game biologists of the Game and Fish Commission indicate that deer populations in certain parts of Taylor County are showing a definite increase. Range conditions are good over most of the county, Bau- man says, and many reports have come of deer being sight- ed or being hit by automobiles. But the populations are not sufficient to justify a doe sea- son here, Bauman quotes the bi- ologists. Antlerless deer permits can be issued only in areas where deer are overrunning the food sup- ply and that is not the case in this county. Deer laws in other areas vary. Check the regulations be- fore you hunt, Bauman sug- gests. There was this hunter who saw a beautiful buck standing off there in range. "I took two quick he reports. "But before I could get the cap back on the bottle the ras- cal was gone." Typhoon in Guam Worst on Record STAMP FIND Leonard Sherman, who may have bought himself a fortune by spending for new Dag Hammarskjold stamps which contained a printing error, turns a hopeful eye on a new batch of stamps Monday. (AP Wirephoto) COLLECTOR'S DREAM Somebody Goofed On Stamp of Dag WASHINGTON (AP) Admit- :ing somebody goofed, the Post Office Department Monday halted sale of its new Dag Ham- marskjold stamps while it tries to letermine how many imperfect ones were printed and where they are. One collector said the goof could mean a bonanza for him. It seems that in running off 120 million of the 4-cent commemora- ive stamps, government printers urned out some with an inverted yellow plate. Among other things, this caused he 4-cent designation to appear in the upper right, instead of low. er left, corner. said one postal of- icial, explaining with some pride hat such an error had occurred only once before, back in 1948. The mistake first came to light when Gerald P. Clark of Akron, Ohio, announced he and two riends had 19 of the stamps and igured they were worth to each. Maybe so, said James F. Kel. Between the first and second uns, the sheets which turned1 out o be imperfect had been twisted n some undetermined way, by ISO egrees, causing the top-to-bottom oul-up. To prevent just such a thing, iach sheet undergoes rigid mech "This is a great tribute to the Jureau of Engraving and Print- said Stanley J. Hodziewich, chief of the department's philatel c section. "When you stop to think that hose fellows print 25 to 30 billion other time this happened was in 1918, it's something of a he said. The 1918 stamp was a 24-cent airmail issue. Hodziewich recalled that one of these recently sold at auction for eher, special assistant to the postmaster general, depending on low many are in circulation. It was first thought only one sheet of 200 stamps with the in- verted yellow plate had been passed, he said. Kelleher said Clark's claim had been authenticated by one postal inspector, and another was sent :o Irvington, N.J., to check out a similar claim by Leonard Sher- man. Sherman, a jeweler, said he had an entire unbroken pane of 50 stamps which he estimated to be worth A dealer said he might not be far off, depending on how many of the imperfect stamps were at large. Within a few hours, Kelleher disclosed rather stoically that Sherman's stamps were, indeed, authentic, but from another sheet. This meant at least two sheets been printed with an inverted yellow plate. The Post Office Department de- cided! then to order its more than stations around the country lo sell no more of the stamps un- til all unsold stocks are checked The value of the Hammarskjold misprints will depend on how many eventually turn up, he said.

Is- land civilian officials reported damages well into the hundreds of millions of dollars. Civilian officials reported six killed. The Navy said five were dead. Both reports said, however, that all the dead were native Guamanians. The Japanese Maritime Safety Agency in Tokyo reported one Japanese fishing 39-ton 15 aboard, oper- ating northwest of Guam, has been missing since Monday mid- night. With the commercial communi- cations facilities still out, first of- ficial word of the disaster began to trickle from Guam through of- ficial channels. First word from the hard-hit island came through Civil Defense communications to Honolulu. It was the initial official praisal of damages done The message, sent by Edward Engledow, press secretary to lanation of the error ran a theme Guam's Acting Gov. Manuel Guer- f pride in the rarity of such mis- rero, said: "Acting Gov. Manuel Guerrero said at least 90 per cent of all buildings (civilian) on the island were damaged beyond re- pair. "Thousands of island residents were homeless and were being housed in schools and other pub lie buildings." Engledow's message said dam- stamps a year for us and that the ages were "well into the hundreds of millions of dollars." Military facilities on the island also were hard hit, the message said, "but Rear Adm. John S. Cox, commander of naval forces in the Marianas, and Maj. Gen. William Kingsbury, commander of Andersen Air Force Base, direct- within the next two days. Mean- while, water points were being es- ablished throughout the island. "The injury toll from the storm was remarkably low, but Guam itemorial Hospital was jammed with evacuees, and many patients ware- transferred to the Navy's lospital. "Practically all business houses were damaged, and most of them were forced to close. "Guerrero said the storm had 'completely wiped out the works and investments of 17 years' and that the present situation is much more serious than that of 1944 when U.S. troops bombarded the island to liberate it from the Japanese." Guamanians and military per- sonnel were struggling to shove out of the blitz of the monster typhoon. Karen unleashed winds up to 172 miles an hour, tore through the tiny island, and left it virtually flattened. Specifics of the wreckage sffi iiave not been enumerated. Com- munications failures had isolatec ;he island hub of the Unitec States' Pacific defense ring until restoration of emergency circuits Monday. The first person listed as dead was understood to be a Guamani- ari. Earlier Monday, the Navy com- mand said "all military person- nel and dependents are well." The Navy said at least four ol every five civilian dwellings hac lost their roofs. The Red Cross said its reports indicate at least persons are homeless.

He brushed aside the Soviet plan for robot in- spection.

Names of the Marines were not made public.

This word came from the White House after a strategy session asting nearly two hours between President Kennedy and his top ad- visers in the Cuban crisis. The only other word from presi- dential press secretary Pierre Salinger was that the group had made an across-the-board review of the situation including negotia- tions under way in the United Na- tions. Other informants forecast tough negotiating ahead, and there even is a growing expectation that some of the elements of the Kennedy Khrushchev agreement for a Cuban settlement may nev- er be fulfilled. Salinger said specifically that was to halt further introduction of such weapons into Cuba. Kennedy has made plain the United States includes the Soviet ximbers as offensive weapons to removed under the deal, but the Russians have been foot-drag- ing on this. The Havana regime under Fidel Castro has protested their removal. U.S. authorities expressed belief the Russians might try to use the continued presence of the bomb- ers- in Cuba as a bargaining lever in the negotiations now under way. The United States, in turn, was expected to continue its blockade until the bombers are taken out. improvised pole was a flag (ne United States is still stand- ing by its demand for a with- drawal of Soviet bombers from Cuba as well as missiles.
