But their coach, Sam Hindsman, is skeptical as to whether his club, which has won 25 of 26 games this season, has the reserve strength to go all the way in ths week-long NAIA tournament grind. Hindsman was thinking of the mid-January automobile wreck near Morrilton, Ark., which deprived him of nearly his entire second platoon. One player was killed and five others injured — some of them still are unable to play basketball — and Hindsman had to reach to his B team for reserves.

Texas Tech wrapped up the Border crown last night by taking care of West exas 84-71. It was the final game of the season for both schools and it gave Tech an 11-1 league record against 9-3 for West Texas. The Southwest Conference race ended in B deadlock last night with Rico and Texas holding 9-4 records.

(/PI—Paul Richards, and his new infield coach, Marty j Marion were deep in conversation during a sandwich break at ths new training grounds of the Chicago White Sox on this city's outskirts. Their topic was Neliie Fox ! the club's standout young second baseman. •"I've found out what it is he's doing wrong," said Marion happily.

It'll be an easy job to straighten him out." The Sox manager chewed moodily for some moments before commenting on Marion's discovery. "I hope you're right," he said finally. "He sure needs to get the ball away quicker, because he hasn't got the best arm in the, world. It's your job to teach him." In view of Fox's high standing among big league second basemen, this reporter fund it strange to learn that he had achieved stardom despite such a weakness. "He hasn't had it all the time," Richards said. "Sometimes ballplayers just forget how to do things and get into bad habits, the same as a golfer does. Our biggest job is to see what he's doing wrong and correct it before any damage is done. "As a matter of fact, Fox hart to be taught an awful lot after he came up.

Valdes lost his top-ranking because of his Very close decision over tfnranked Archie McBride in a Havana bout. The big Cuban dropped to second behind the former heavyweight champion who gets another crack at the heavyweight crown June 17 when he meets Rocky Marciano. Pep. twice-holder of the feather-^ weight crown, fell all the way" from the No. 1 ranking to tenth as a result of being stopped in two rounds by 20-year-old Lulu Perez. The young Brooklyn boxer- puncher advanced from fifth to third among the 120-potinders. Wallace (Bud) Smith the Cincinnati clouter who was the No. 1 lightweight challenger, fell to welterweight Joe Micelli. Chavez^ of San Jose took over first : Cuba's Orlando Zuelueta moved u; from third to second. Johnny Bratton also got the axe. The Chicago welterweight drubbed by Johnny Sacton, plummeted from third to tenth among the 147-pound- ers. Nate Brooks, the newly crowned North American bantamweight champion, vaulted into a No. 4 ranking as the result of his title victory over Billy Peacock. -j Indignation of Continued from Page One was intended for the whole state and the fact that the legislature designated where it was tp be situated didn't make the act a local one. . * These cases, however, are definitely not illustrative of the general fate of local acts. Although they arc forbidden by the Constitution and the Supreme Court has frequently and firmly reiterated the prohibition, several score local bills are adopted each legislative, session. And most of them remain undisturbed as part of the state's law. „ The legislators who introduce^ them know, technically, ,at least, that they are illegal So do the legislators who vote for them, the governor who signs them and any lawyers or informed laymen who happen to be interested. Most of them remain in effect for a very simply reason. Nobody bothers to attack them in court, and no matter how illegal a legislative act is, it's still the law un-.. til a court formally rules 'that it'sw unconstitutional. Of course, its not always easy to decide whether an act is local or not. For example, the Supreme Court has said that an act which 'lists the salary of the county judge, say, in each of the state's 75 counties is . not local, but general, even though the salaries are different. Yet it might be contended 1 Tennessee St. 91 Southern (Tcnn.) 84 North Carolina St. College, Texas Southern 80 U. 81 Ml OWES Marietia 116 Ohio U. 93 Denison 82 Muskigum 70 Capitol 72 Ohio Wesleyan op St. Norberts 86 Michigan Tech Lawrence Tech 75 Calvin 59 South Dakota St. 63 August&na, (S.

U, 64, Oklahoma A&lVf 77 Tujsa. 43 exas 68 Tenas Chylstten' 59 Texas Tech 84 West Texas St. 7J the bill actually is 75 local acts.* The court has held that an otherwise general bill becomes loal by a provision which would exempt wise county from its general conditions. It doesn't. make a bill in the least less local for it to outline population or other requirements which would fit only one county rather than designating that county by name. Court decisions, however, allowt' classifications of counties by population —but the classification must be general in nature and "reasonable." The present Arkansas Constitution contained originally a provision that no special or local law might be enacted where a general law could be made applicable. According to Dowell Anders, research director for the Arkansas legislative Council, the Supreme fi Court consistently held thai the ' egislature was the judge of whether a general act could apply and vhether a bill was local or not. During Hie .50 years this consti- ulional provision was effeclive no )ill ever was declared to have vio- ated it, Anders said. The ratio of local and special jills ^grew so large that 68 per cent of all the acts adopted by the 1923 Legislalure were so classified. W. The situation finally resulted in adoption of the 1926 amendment. The total proljibiton against local legislation— and Anders says Arkansas is the only state to go to such lengths — definitely has cut down on bijls of this type. But it hasnn't eliminated them by any means. For example, the Legislative Council's Research Department considered. 62 of the 575 acts pass- ^,. ed In 1953 as distinctly local in *•' nature. Jri }851, the ratio was 86 pj! 4J5, . Undoubtedly there'll be local in J95.5 ^r and the succeeding legislative years. Gold sell? for about $500 a pound..
