Elmer Finley of Malakoff has been named as an original member of the Tarleton State University Athletic Hail of Fame.

Finley will be inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame during ceremonies as part of the Homecoming Day activities at Tarleton on October 18. Fire report By DAVID RAMSEY A mobile home belonging to Clyde Whitson was heavily damaged Thur- sday when it caught fire. The fire was believed to have started from faulty wiring but has not yet been determined. The bedroom and kitchen were both destroyed while the rest of the house received only smoke damage. Fire fighters from both Malakoff and Caney City helped in bringing the fire under control before too much damage was done to other parts of the house.

(Staff Photo by Sandy McGuffey) Talking about by Larry Wilkinson The sports scene is now limited to lit- tle league, softball, and a few scram- bles at Star Harbor.

He rolled a 300 game at Sands Lanes in Athens. For you non-bowlers that is 12 strikes in a row. The first 10 balls were solid as a rock. The eleventh however came in a little high. All across the lanes a loud groan went up. But just as the rack started down a pin rolled across from the other side and gently nudged the six pin over. Bruce then swallowed hard and laid that last strike in the pocket as solid as a rock. Just the week before he had strung 10 in a row only to have the eleventh ball finish a little high. He then spared and had a 288. Earlier in the year he had carved out a 793 series which is the highest this year and perhaps ever. That was just seven poin- ts from the magical 800 series mark. That achievement ranks right up there with the perfect game. Hollywood Henderson is now a 49'er. The Cowboys are happy. Hollywood is happy. I can't help but wonder if the 49'ers are happy.
