Sheridan Takes 50,000 Damage 2 League Wins Personal fouls finally caught up with the Willamina Bulldogs in the fourth quarter of a Ya- wama league basketball test Tuesday night as the Sheridan Spartans came out with a 58-49 win Seven Bulldogs ' 'bit the dust" via the foul route and Willamina finished the game able to "field" only four players to cope with the Spartans' nor- mal quota of five hoopsters. Leading by two points going in- to the fourth period, the Sparts outscored the Bulldogs 16-9 in the last quarter to take the win going away. The victory, coupled with the Spartans' tight 55-53 win Fri- day night at Philomath, kept Sheridan in a third-place tie with Yamhill-Carlton at 5 wins- 2 losses in Yawama action. Surging toa 15-11 first quart- er margin, Sheridan saw its lead cut by one in the second panel and the teams left the floor at halftime with the hosts on top, 29-26. Willamina lopped off another point in the third canto and entered the fateful fourth trailing by only two, at 42-40. By that time, though, too many Bulldogs were carrying too many fouls and they began to fall before the referee's whistles, nearly red-hot from tooting G8 personal foul calls during the rugged contest. The loss dropped the 'Dogs into a fourth-place tie with Amity, Again leading the Sparts was guard John Evers, who tallied 21 counters from his playmaker position. He was followed by Dennis Haddon and Richard Wren, who both dumped in eight points, Verne Lochner with seven, Joe Brickell and Ed Brandt, who both bucketed five markers and Chuck Cinnamon and Freeman Stutzman, both with two points. Starting for- ward Ken Plemmons failed to score before leaving the game in the early minutes with a twisted ankle Leading Bulldog scorers with nine tallies were Rider,follow- ed by Thurber and Holt with eight apiece, Ashwelland Brock with six points each, Ellis with five, Newbfll with four, Pratt with two and Cain with one point. Against Philomath, the Spar- tans were led by Dennis Haddon, who chalked up a 16-point eve- ning. Plemmons dunked 13 counters in that outing, follow- ed by Evers with 12, Brickle with eight and Kyle, who dropped in 6 points. Actions Filed Two Sheridan women have filed suit in Yamhill County Circuit Court against Gladys M Yocom, also of Sheridan, seeking damages totaling more than $50,000 for injuries al- legedly received in an accident Jan. 13, 1963.

About 100 Men Slated 'On Job' For Opening Reopening of the huge U.So Plywood plant at Willamina on Monday, Feb. 17, and a change in plywood production methods has been reported to the Sher- idan Sun by Don Stevens, gen- eral manager of the operation. U.S. Plywood has been closed since being struck last June and during a vast moderniza- tion project, which has includ- ed about $1 million in expend- itures for new machinery and other work. Stevens said the opening day work force will include about 100 men. The scheduled com- pletion date for the project is Saturday Feb. 15, but it is not expected that all work will be done by that time. "Although," Stevens said, "it is looking better every day." Additional men will be go- ing back to work with the shift in the type of plywood produced at the mill. Stevens pointed out U.S. Plywood, with the reopen- ing, will be producing on a schedule calling for about 70 per cent sanded plywood out of its total quota. Fewer men would be needed if the old type production schedule had been followed. Approximately 180 $650,000 worth of the $1 mil- lion project has been com- pleted. Additional work plans call for the huge noderniza- tion task to be completed in mid-summer. Installed in the now com- pletely modern plant have been a new water jet-flow system for moving and block handling from the log pond. The pond has been diked across to fa- cilitate the new sldelift and barker machinery, all com- pletely new. Bridge cranes no longer will be in use at the mill. These have been replaced by deck chains. As the logs move into the plant, they will proceed through a new 8-foot lathe, which is larger than the old 12-foot lathe. They then encounter a new tipple and tray control system Sheridan Meet Plans Underway Mr. and Mrs. Gust Gust- arson, worthy matron and pa- tron, and Mrs. Eugene McKinley, associate matron of Sheridan Chapter 89 OES, visited the regular meeting of men will be employed in the Amity chapter Monday evening mill when a full production and made plans for the district schedule is achieved, meeting to be held in Sheridan ReportsAccrding to Stevens,GiveabOUtn Febc llh'a m be Bowling Plans Reported :i[ Paul Tuggle, owner of the firm presently located on West Main Street, said the company will be moved into the build- ing about March 31.
