Segura is scheduled to meet Australian Davis Cup star Rex Hart-wig at Haynes Gymnasium on Saturday. Feb. 23. as a preliminary singles match for the pro net program. The 5 feet 6 inch veteran player from Ecuador has been a professional star since 1947. On the other hand, the other members of the troupe are relative newcomers. Pancho Gonzales turned professional in 1949, while Tony Trabert and Hartwig made the plunge in 19.55. Since 1947. Segura has played in five tours, losing only to all-conquering Kramer. The 34-year-old Los Angeles pro beat Dinny Pails. Frankie Parker and Ken Mc Gregor.

Keglers Due At Lafayette The Lafayette Bowling Assn. of Lafayette, will be host for the 11th ennual Louisiana State Bowling Assn.'s Handicap Tournament. Plans are well under way for the opening day of bowling on April 7. The tournament will officially extend through the weekend of May 5. Additional weekends will be added if the entry warrants. This tournament is sanctioned by the American Bowling Congress for sanctioned bowlers in the state of Louisiana. All male bowlers who 'belong to a sanctioned city association are eligible to compete. The fee for prize money, all of which is returned to the bowlers, is $3.00 per event, per individual. Bowling fees are $1.00 per event,-per individual and tournament expense fees are the same amount. A total entry fee of $5.00 per event, especially impressive in the United States Pro Tournament at Cleveland. He won the title in 1950 and 1952, was runner-up in 1951. TOUGH COMPETITION Segura also won the National Pro Round-Robin Tournament at Forest Hills in 1951 against such competition as Gonzales, Bobby Riggs, Welby Van Horn and Parker. In the first annual Professional Championships at Beverly Hills in 1935, Segura was edged out by Gonzales in a gruelling final match. Tie year 1947 was doubly important for Segura. He turned professional and he married Virginia Spencer Smith of Long Island. Pancho and his attractive wife have a 3-year-old son, Francisco Spencer Segura. ou can be sure, proud papa Pancho will have voung Francisco on the tennis courts as soon as the Segura heir j can pick up a racket with a two- handed grip, of course. Team 1 1 tli e&fion TO TENNESSEE NSC Tank Array on Road Trip NATCHITOCHES, Feb. 15 (Special) Northwestern State College's swimming team, under the leadership of Coach John Piscopo, will travel to Nashville, Tenn., this weekend where they will compete in two dual meets. On Friday, the Demonfish will be splashing it out with Vanderbilt University; on Saturday they will be the guest of Tennessee Tech in Cookeville, Tenn. Also on the agenda will be a diving clinic for the southern district of the American Association of Health, Physical Education and Recreation. Coach Piscopo will he in charge cf the clinic and will use five divers from his team to demonstrate fancy diving techniques, scoring by judges, and spectator appreciation. Topnotch performers on the springboard will be Benny Wise and Botsy McClanahan (regular divers on the Demon team. they will be assisted by teammates Johnny Tin-nell, Charles Prophit, and Dickson Shortle. Last year the Demon swimmers made this very same trip and re turned home with two big wins over the teams from the Volunteer State defeating Vanderbilt 54-30, and then sinking Tech 69-15 as they captured every first place and set a new scoring record for NSC in the second encounter. Nothing would please the rapidly improving Demonfish more than if they jou'.d repeat their past per-fonar'e. Little is known about eithc- of the Tennessee teams, ex-cerl that they will be out for bitter revenge over the NSC Tankers. Leading the attack will be Captain Ray Timm, with 24 points to his credit thus far this season, and Johnny Tinnell with 21. With a double victory, the Demons would definitely improve their record. : which now stands at one and four. Those making the trip will be freestylers Frank Pernique, Dean Clark, Grulee Herron, Dickson Shortle, Charles Prophit; back-strokers Ray Timm, Bob Knighton, Ken Terwey; breaststrokers, Johnny Tinnell, Sonny Seward, John Williams, and fancy divers Benny Wise and Botsy McClanahan. per individual. An optional class, the handicap all-events, is $1.00 per entry. Entries will close on March 4. Averages will be the highest league average of the entrant as of Feb. 4. A handicap of 70 per cent between each entrant's highest league average and 200 will be granted each contestant. Bowlers with an average of 200 or better will bowl as scratch entries.

Hi Humble Oil 115 115 115 STOCKS NEW YORK. Feb. 15 UP Volume soared three million shares for the first time in four months as a general advance swept the stock market today. The report from President Eisenhower's physicians that he could be active "for another five or ten years" was enough to pile up a batch of overnight orders. In the initial splurge of buying prices leaped ahead from 1 to 6 points in leading issues and the ticker tape, which reports transactions, lagged behind by as much as three minutes. But activity slackened gradually as the session wore on an dprices softened as volume fell off. By the close the gains among key stocks ranged from 1 to about 3 points. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks, which had gained $2.50 at noon, slipped back to a gain of $1.90 at the close. The industrials were up $3.30, the rails $1.50 and the utilities 40 cents.

NEW YORK. Feb. 15 UP) Cotton futures closed 25 cents a bale high er to $1.45 lower today. Old crop months held relatively well on extensive trade covering with new crop months a target for selling. Some traders were inclined to take profits, following recent market advances. Uncertainty over the new farm bill was also a con sideration. Memphis interests were credited with buying October and December actively. Toward the close, buying of nearby March against sales of October developed in volume, with one trade house estimated to have done about 5.000 in that operation The New York Cotton Exchange Service Bureau estimated domes tic cotton consumption at 765,000 bales, bringing indicated consump tion for first 26 weeks of the sea son, July 31-Jan. 28. to 4,691,000 bales. This was 278.000 bales ahead of the similar period last year.
