Vandals using the same tech- nique as before, struck again in Florala on Saturday night. Two private cars had windows Edward Heckaha waited un- til the last race of the season to win his first race of the old bird series. Huckaha who has raced a very small team very well the past two years, was in South Carolina visiting relatives and his son Randy handled all the Huchaba birds. He has won the Melbourne Classic Race (400 air miles) and the beautiful trophy that goes with it. He also won a leg on the Davis-Vaitis tro- phyT'o win this trophy, a flier has to win the Melbourne race three times - Huckaba needs to win the Melbourne race two more times and he'll have ano- ther trophy. Second place was won by Cla- rence Davidsan of New Har- mony. Third place was won by Emery Locke of Crestview, Florida. Fourth place was won by Mac Cosby of Opp, Alabama. Dr. C.K.

These belonged to Oscar Mitchell and Danny Har- rtsou. The glass on thedoor alWes- These were the only lofts to clock birds during race time. This race was a hot one - 93 degrees here and this kind of weather is not for pigeon rac- ing. As this was the last old bird race for this year, let's look at the record book and see who won the various awards and what each award really means. Loft of the Year Trophy was won by Mac Cosby of Opp, Ala- bsma. Runner-up was The Da- vis Family Loft. Loft of the Year was won by attaining more points than any other loft. Basically the first 10 positions only count in loft points. As can be seen, it takes a top flier to get this trophy. The winner has more points than any flier in the 'club. Average Speed Trophy was won by the Davis Family Loft. Ranner-up was won by Mac Cosby of Opp, Alabama. This trophy means that the person who wins this trophy has the fastest average speed. Just simply take all the races and the speed of each race, thenadd them and divide by the number bf races flown. This is another hard trophy to win, also. Bird of the Year and runner- up went to Clarence Davidson of New Harmony. These trophies are for the birds (individually) that have scored points in the top ten po- sitions more tbsn any other bird. They are sort of like high point men on a basketball team. It takes a good individual bird to win this trophy. The Melbourne Classis Tro- phy went to Edward Huchabs. The winner must win the 400 mile race - a very hard race. The winner really deserves a trophy. tern Auto was broken out; Zorn Brothers had a window broken at their main office in Florala. Windows were broken on a car at Hartzog's Garage and win- dows ih a car and a door were broken out at McDaniel Motor Company. Vamlals also hit in four pla- ces in DeFanlak Springs, Flo- rida. Police Chief Paul Mit- chell said the vandals were ap- parently using sling-shots with marbles, steel hall bearings and other things to shatter win- dows'. They are apparently shooting from a moving car. The.City of Florala is offer- ins a $300 reward for informa- tion leading to the arrest and conviction of persons breaking windows. Anyone with informa- tion should contact Paul Mit- chell'at the police department. Little Leo g/e News Last week, with all the 24th of Jane activities, there were four exciting Little League ga- mes.

The resolution reads: "I, Mayor Gene Clary of the City of Laurel Hill, hereby proclaim Independence Day, Sunday, July 4th as "Attend the Church of Your Choice Day," and urge each person to attend the church of their choice in commemo- ration of this nation's 200th birthday."
