Dr. Tolbort S. Wilkinson of The In- stitute for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in San Antonio, physician for the U.S Olympic Pentathlon team, has organized a special medical unit that is stationed on the sidelines and treats athletes right at the scene -- sometimes w/thin seconds. This unit is unusually active during equestrian events. Wilkinson says that the dirt and grass in a horse arena is a haven for bacteria that will enter an untended wound quickly and cause "massive contamination." here for annual Trinidad Trek The sixth annual Trinidad Trek Canoe Race has been set for Saturday, Sept. 17, beginning at 10:30a.m. Race briefing will be held at 10 a.m. at the race site. Entry fee is $30 per team in advance and on race day. Pre-entries should be sent to Epic Canoe Productions, Inc. at 8519 Lakemont, Dallas 75209. Trophies will be presented at 1 p.m. at the finish area to the first ten teams (two per team). Also, the first local teams will have their names inscribed on the permanant Trinidad Trophy which remains on display at Trinidad City Hall. 489-1500 403 East Royall Blvd. Malakoff BIG BA88--Chad Flores of Malakoff proudly displays an 8-pound black bass caught by his father, J.R.

Terry 4894)090 Malakoff In fact, a few minutes is sufficient time for an infection to develop in a wound, Wilkinson adds. To avoid that danger he organized a speed unit that maintains "a watch" along the side of the horse arena during practices and competition. If a rider falls, the unit races to the athlete to immediately treat any lacerations. The face, neck, arms and legs are typical areas for such injuries. Severe lacerations on legs and arms also occur occasionally when a pen- tathlon runner falls on a track during an event. The problem of massive contamination, however, is not as great on the gravel or tartan running track as on the dirt of the horse arena, Wilkinson claims. High school and college football in- juries are treated by Dr. John C. Kelleher, a plastic surgeon in Toledo, Ohio. He reviews common injuries of football players from area high schools and the University of Toledo. Kelleher lists ruptured tendons in fingers and hands, severely strained and torn ligaments, fractured thumb joints and bone chips in the ring and middle fingers as often requiring plastic surgery. "Football players are well equipped, but .cannont cover their hands and fingers without limiting playing per- formance," Kelleher says. "Hands and fingers subsequently get knocked, steppedon, bruised and brutalized. As a result, they come up injured." Even parts of the body covered by equipment are injured frequently, Kelleher explains. The helmet and its crossbar are not absolute protection against broken noses and jaws. When such injuries occur, Kelleher fits the pieces of bone together, sets the nose or jaw straight and re-drapes the skin. These procedures prevent scarring and disfiguration. The advent of Astroturf as a sub- stitute for natural grass has made the playing field a prime agent in some injuries that require plastic surgery. Skidding and sliding for instance, risks skin abrasions and burns on arms and legs of players, Kellehersays, and in some instances surgeons must apply skin grafts. Another ASPRS member, Dr. D. Ralph Millard Jr. of Miami, treats boxers. A former boxer, Millard has "developed a surgical procedure to stitch a cut above a boxer's eye in seconds between rounds. The procedure prevents further injury and allows the fight to continue. As a first step, the cut is cleaned with a standard antiseptic, Millard said. A stitch in a figure-eight shape, then is sewed in two quick motions. The stitch holds tight even ff struck by repeated blows later in the fight. In all, the procedure takes about 45 seconds to perform, five days later the stitches are removed with no visible scar. Without such a procedure, Millard says, the cut would become enlarged, possibly infected, and the fighter's vision blurred. Millard says he successfuiy per- formed the surgery several years ago during a championship fight in Miami. "The boxer decided to walk around the ring before returning to his corner," Millard remarked, "an I had to walk out to the middle of the ring with him to finish the stitch. It was crazy. But it did the job and the fight continued." TOO MUCH OVERTIME The longest major league baseball game (by innings) was a meeting bet- ween the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Boston Braves on May I, 1920 that went 26 innings. The game ended in a I-1 tie. There Are MILES Of GOOD GOING In An AUTO INSURED By U$...GOOD COVERAGE, GOOD SERVICE, GOOD HANDLING OF CLAIMS_CHECK WITH US TODAY!

Tell me it's just a ploy by other teams to cause all thee tions we were going to avoid. Tell me George Allen is behind all of this. anything, but tell me it isn't true. And what about this Everson Walls retiring tactic and Dexter holding out? Walls is just 23-years old. Dexter's Just a pup, they're still too young to call it quits? There's still a lot of passes to be ted. A lot of Super Bowls to be won. A lot of All-Pro teams to make. The way I have it figured, Walls is disastified with his current reportedly has two more years for something like $37,000 a did he think he would have made if he had stayed retired? a five-year package that would top out at $175,000 a year, plus wants a three-year deal. I may be missing something, but $175,000 a like a lot more than $37,000. Fortunately, There's little doubt anywhere Walls doesn't deserve a better Cowboys. I agree. He's worth more than his current salary. vs. the five years, that's for the legal whizzes to figure out. But at realized that retiring was not the way to handle it.

Cowboy auarterback Danny White said in a television interview he felt this Cowboy team was more unified than Dallas teams of the all of the distractions were responsible. Who knows? Maybe all of the distractions are just what's needed to Cowboys back to the Super Bowl. It would be ironic.
