There was just one catch: How to get word to Murchison in the wilds that the game would be on the air? The station agreed to run one-minute promotion commercials about the broadcast on the day of the game. But it balked at selling additional time for the message, "Attention, Clint Murchison, wherever you are...." The Billings station's call letters are KOOK, but it has to draw the line somewhere. So the game went on with no one knowing whether Murchison got the message.
A FLAME IS LIGHTED
Yoshinori Sakari, a freshman at Waseda University, has been chosen as the Olympic torchbearer who will light the flame at Tokyo National Stadium to begin the 1964 Games. The flame symbolizes, among other things, peace. Sakari was born August 6, 1945, near Hiroshima. That day the atomic bomb was dropped.
GIRL WITH A GOAL
Track and field has become a way of life in Oregon—host the past three years to two NCAA national championships, the U.S. Track and Field Federation championships, the national AAU decathlon championships, the Oregon Invitational and the NCAA Western Regional Indoor championships.
World-class competitions have become commonplace there. But no world-record holder we ever heard of could claim this accomplishment: first in the two-mile, first in the mile, first in the half-mile and first in the quarter-mile, all in the same meet on the same afternoon.
The phenom is 8-year-old Teresa Lillard of The Dalles, who loves blue ribbons. During July alone she collected 12 of them, including the ones listed, in Portland All-Comers meets.
Forty-eight pounds of competitive spirit, Teresa has collected 21 blue ribbons this summer, running mostly against girls of her own age. But she has beaten older girls, too, and in one meet she ran against a field of boys. She won.
Some might consider four distance races in an afternoon a bit strenuous for an 8-year-old, but Teresa's family doctor approves. So does Teresa.
Every year Frank Broyles, Arkansas football coach, pores over the new football rules with as much interest as a tax attorney searching for loopholes in the revised internal revenue code. Now Broyles's study of the 1964 rules has convinced him that jumping offside may be one of his Razorbacks' most guileful maneuvers this season.
