Willamina Man Wins Two AWards In Bucking Tests Two double winners, Roy Zimbrick of Willamina and "Big John" MH]er of Roseburgp headlined the Phil Sheridan Logger's contests Saturday morning at the high schoolfoot- ball field. A good crowd saw exciting log bucking, choker- setting and ax throwing action in the bigger and better events. Winners along with Zimbrick and Miller were Joe Martin of Roseburg and Milton Mayfield of Grants Pass with outstand- ing times and top quality ax throwing in their trophy-win- ning events. Miller was a top drawing card for the events, having just re-. turned from a month-longexhi- bitlon stay at the New York World's Fair. He was one of the performers in the Oregon Timber carnival at the giant world's fair, but was able to re- turn to Oregon and Sheridan in time for the Phil SheridanDays competition. Trophies, given to first and second place winners, were do- nated by Oregon-Alder Maple company, U. S. Plywood cor- poration, Garrabrandt Lumber company Taylor Lumber com- pany and Ed's Saw Shop atNes- kowino U. S. Plywood at WILl. lamina furnished the bucking logs around which most of the action took place. Probably the outstanding event of the morning show was the final conte st - the ax throw- Ing test. After the slate of competitors had finished their three throws at the target the results showed a three-way tie for first place among Don and Milton Mayfleld, a father-son pair rom Grants Pass, and "Big John" Miller, each with 11 points. Scoring was based on a 5-point bullseye, and four, three, two and one point for each ring farther away from the center. To break the three-way dead- lock, the trio of competitors had another round of three throws each. Miller threw first and tallied nine points on his two tosses. His third fail- ed to stick in the target as it bounced off the four ring. Mil- ton Mayfleld "came to bat" and tossed two out of three bullseyes for a total of 14. His father, Do% tallied a bullseye and a four in his first two tos- ses for nine points. HIS third throw brought a cheer of ex- pectation from the crowd as he needed another bullseye to tie the score - but the ax chunked into the four ring to give him a total of 13 and sec- ond place in the event. In the modified saw bucking division, Joe Martin ripped through the log in 23.2 sec- onds with his Solo Super X direct drive hopped up saw to take first place over Medic By. num of Otis, who was timed in 33 seconds flat. In the stock saw bucking div- ision, Zimbrlck took his sec- ond trophy of the day with a time of 44.1 second% better than five seconds ahead of Mll- ier's second place time of 49.9 in sawing the end off the log. Zimbrick took his first trophy by winning the choker-setting contest in 30 seconds fiat. All saws used in the stock saw contest were Canadian P.M. models furnished by George Freep of Grants Pass. Miller took his two trophies by winning the Log Chopping contest and the hand saw buck- ing event, His time of 30.3 seconds won the log chopping event from Medle Bynum, who took second with a time of 41.8 seconds.
