They \ised to go on barnstorming tours during the Christmas holidays, once they lost Ihem all and then took the conference crown hands down. There have been a couple of notable exceptions. In 1328. the Porkers didn't lose a game. In 1941, they lost only to the Phillips Oilers — and not to a single college team— during the regular season. And while their pte-rnce record is the poorest,-due to tougher competition, the Razorbacks look as good as any Southwest team again this year.

That seems to be the only explanation. Van Buren, the defending state lltgh school basketball champ, dropped a 44-34 decision to at. Joe recently. But Van Bitren Coach Clalr Bates says he arranged the game as » strictly non-scheduled practice lilt and that his Pointers didn't attach any significance to It. However, recognizing St. Joe as a definite title threat come tournament time. Bates has booked a regular clash with the North Arkansans Jan. 16, this time at Van Buren.
