In other games yesterday Arv kansas City Kas., eliminated " Missouri Baptist of. Poplar Bluff, 75-50; Coffeyville, Kas., thumpr ed McCopk, Neb., 59-46; and Dodge City booted out Joplin, 53-37, Yesterday's results leave the tourney without a Missouri contender. Off to a poor start the .Greyhounds quickly found themselves on the short end of a 11-2 reading and it took an uphill struggle to get back in the game. Re vamping the offense and wheel- ffjing out their fast break the Greyhounds closed the gap and left, the floor at half time trailing by only two points, 22-24. Winners Pull Away It was nip and tuck for 12 minutes of the second half withj the Greyhounds staying right oni the winners' heels but. never! able to pull even. With eigh minutes left Garden City shooh loose and won pulling away. John Kelly and Dale Horton six-five, teamed tip on a double post offensive to drivi home the knockout blow fo: Garden City. Kelly rang, up 16 points and Horton 17. Don Gosen, the team's point maker, carried the scoring bur den and got in on most of the re bounds for Moberly. The gang ling senior hit four field goal and six free throws for 14 points Fireman George Maeser, whc promises to blossom into stardom next winter, bagged 11. ^'Greyhounds Below Par Summing up the Moberly per formance a disappointed Maur ice John said he was making no excuses but believed it was om of the poorest performances o the campaign for his charges "They bobbled time and again on' the fast break and missed the set shots," the Hound mentor re lated. The Hounds were scheduled to leave Dodge City early this ,-j. morning and arrive in Moberly T between 8 and 9 o'clock tonight There are four Kansas teams left in the tournament.

And you 'wonder why some smart guy like Branch Rickey or Bill Southworth hasn't tried "it in a big way Sporting News reveals The that White Sox Manager Jack Onslow is studying his club's pro. ·. motion film to see how the play- S?ers perform and that Cincinnati's Warren Giles is encouraging amateur movie photographers on the Reds . . . If you've seen foot- b?ll coaches studying films by the hour in search of minor flaws, you wonder why baseball managers don't do the same thing . , . It.^eems obvious that a shot of a" batter when he's swinging just right would be helpful when he's in a slump, _ especially if you'd make a sim- £#ilar film and compare them in slow motion . . . It also seems strange that most any college can afford to have complete pictures made of all its football games, while big league baseball is counting on amateurs. HOOSIER FAVORITE? Word from Indiana is that the police and fire departments from the comparatively large cities of Anderson and Richmond had ^o take over in Summitville and '·r'cuniain'City last weekend . . . The high school teams of those two villages were engaged in regional basketball tournaments and the entire population of the towns followed them . . . Summitville (pop. 971, students 58) justified this enthusiasm, by knocking off the state's largest high school, Tech of Indianapolis. SPRINGFIELD, Mp., March 11 (ffi)--Eight teams pair off for gam'es today in the second round of the Missouri State High School basketball tournament. Lebanon will play Rockhurst of Kansas City, and Bonne Terre will meet Hannibal in games this afternoon. Tonight Maryy.il- le plays Buffalo, and Burroughs of St. Louis meets Bowling Green. Lebanon, Rockhurst and Bonne Terre got past first round opponents Wednesday. . And yesterday Hannibal defeated Clinton in the last four seconds of play on a field goal by Wes Sanders, 41-39. It was a heart-breaker for Clinton which once blew, a -10-point lead and .right at the last rallied to overcome an 'eight-point deficit. Spoofhounds Come Through Maryville squeaked past Doniphan when Dick Buckridge connected from midcourt with a field goal in the last 45 seconds to give the Spoofhounds a 38-36 verdict and their 26th victory, this season. It 'was a day for strong finishes, and Buffalo came from behind in the fourth period to defeat Ozark 41-35, Billy Thomas and Adrian Gaunt engineered the victors' last period rally.' John Burroughs High of St. Louis, the first class B school to. represent the city in the state meet, ousted Republic 55-44. The feat broke Republic's victory streak at 19 games. -Ben Bishop paced the victors with 11 field goals and a free throw for 23 points. Bowling Green rolled Cape Girardeau Central 52-45 in a rough game in which 49 fouls were, called. Five players, three from Bowling Green,' left the game on fouls. Lowell Fitzsimmons led the victors with 16 points, and Marvin Proffer, was tops for the Cape quint with 13. Victors in games today will square off in the semi-finals tomorrow afternoon. The finals will be'played Saturday 'night. Star of Contest Sanders, -whose field goal won the game for Hannibal, was. star of the contest. He scored a total of 25 points, 19 of them in the last half. Clinton's Don Price had tied the score 10 seconds before the end. As the ball sailed down court to Sanders he was fouled. He missed the free throw, but recovered the rebound and sank the winning goal- on jump shot. The other heartbreaker of the day's play was the Doniphan- Maryville game. In this case it was Buckridge who sank, the winning, goal as well as taking the scoring honors with 15 points. Maryville held a 24 to 18 halftime.lead and a 31 to 24 edge · at. the beginning of. the fourth quarter. Sam Wiggins almost wrecked Maryville's chances who counted-10 points for Doniphan in :the final period. Doniphan missed nine free throw chances, five in the last period, while Maryville made good 10 of its 13 chances at charity shots.
