Few fans could actually tell Tech grabbed a 2-0 lead with one minute gone but Childless who scored 21 of his 25 points in the first half, evened it up 30 seconds later. Tech Gets Lead Gentry and Childress hit and Blytheville had R lead it relinquished only once, later In the period. Dowdy U»sed in a free throw with 1:05 left to give Tech a 15-14 lead which stood up only seven seconds as Childress, Mosley and Holland put six, points through in less than • minute. Tech's FOI bis sank two free throws Just prior to the end of the quarter and Blytheville led 20-17 at the end of that period. It was mostly Childress In the second stanza. Red opened the quarter by dunking one to give Blytheville a 2'-lQ margin with 6:00 left, hit again to make it 24-22. again to make It 2722 with 4:10 left, got a free throw to give the Chicks a 28-23 lead, hit from the field for a 30-23 lead with 1:33 left and finally took a lip off from Holland and spun It In as the quarter ended with Blytheville leading, 32-24. Thus Childress scored every point scored by the chicks in that quarter except one (Mosley's free throw) and outscored all other nine men on the court during the quarter. Mosley Moves ' ^ But the third quarter belonged as much to Tommy Mosley as the second did to Red. Holland and Childress gave Blytheville a 37-28 lead with 6:30 lelt and Mosley hit three straight from the field to make it 43-23, Blytheville, with 3:00 left and that about wrapped-It up. - . •• Donald Gentry added a free throw and Tommy, breaking quickly down the court, dribbled down the west sideline and drove In for a layup to give tfce Chicks a 46-31 edge with 1:30 remaining. Gentry added the finishing touch with a field goal to make it 48-3-1 at Ihe end of the period. Holland Out Mosley made it 50 and Holland 52 and then, at the 5:40 mark, Holland fouled out. Hill and West each added field goals before Tech started a too little and too late rally. With Forbis pacing the attack, the Greene Coumians pulled from a 56-39 deficit to 56-49, then Chll- dress got two free throws and Mosley did the same. A pair of Halls, Clarance and Charles Ray, led the B team to a 6J-33 triumph over the Tech Bees. Charley Ray and Clarence teamed with sophomore Danny Cobb and whola host of other reserves to swarm over Tech. The Bees grabbed a 16-n first quarter • lead and showed a lot of shooting class in overcoming the in- 'aders.

I think our learn will be stronger. We are getting back outsiders Bob 'tcnneriy, Jim Lemon llcrbie Adams and pitchers Dick Weik and AI Aber from the serv- ce. We also have some good young Players coming up. Our pitching was very good last ,'ear and I honestly believe It will be better—especially if Bob Feller nakcs a comeback. I predict that Bob Lemon, Early Wynn and Mike Garcia will win GO games again In 1953. Bob Hooper, whom we ob- :amed from Philadelphia, should >e a big help, hoth as a starter intl reliever. We need a lefthandcd pitcher and Aber, who looked good before he went into service, may be the answer. 1'anks Team to Beat don'l know how Ihe outfield will work out. There are a dozen on our rosier including Dave Pope, who led the American Association in batting with .352 last year. Wally Westlake, who came up from Cincinnati, could recover his baiting eye. Larry Uoby and Dale Mitchell figure to hold down regular spots Harry Simpson was a greatly Improved player last year.' All In all, I think our chances are very«>good to dethrone the lankces, especially if we can keep Easier in the lineup all year. The entire league will be stronger. Tho Athletics, Senators Tigers Browns and White Sox are all Improved. The Yankees, with Whitcy Ford back, will get better pitching. That Is the (cam [o beat—the Yankees. Aren't they always?
