Weevils Grab 2nd AIC Win, Thar man Hits 27 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS If Arkansas A&M's Billy Thurman can keep hitting the >asket with regularity, the Boll Weevils might cause some dis- .urbance in the Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference basket)all race.

The triumph left A&M ' with , -2 conference record, but the Weevils still are anchored in fourth place. All of the other AIC members were idle. Ouachita, which has won only one game in 13 this season, now has three conference defeats without a victory. A&M concentrated its defense on Ouachita's two ace scorers, Max McElmurry and Gayle Bone, and held them to 16 points each. Allen Thomas pierced the Weevils' Ae- fense for 24 points, however. Thurman's 27-point outburst won game scoring honors. A&M's Jim Trim added another 16. Three conference encounters are on tap tonight.

Yesterday he ordered .the commission counsel William P. Thomas ;o prepare charges against promo;ors Tex Sullivan and Willie Gllzen- bers and their London Sporting Club, which runs the televised Monday fights at -St. Nicholas Arena, "on the Maryland situation md other matters." Last week Helfand said he in- ended to investigate to see It the St. Nick's promoters violated the aw forbidding association_sEilb_ mown criminals when they tried o move to Baltimore, effective Jan. 23. The attempted move was nullified by Maryland Gov. Mc- Celdin, who forced his commission o reverse itself. Middleweight Match St. Nick's will be in business at the same old stand for at least one more week, however. A middleweight match between England's John L. Sullivan and New York's Tony Johnson has been approved or Jan. 16. Other matches may j be approved, pending a final decision on the investigation, provided the managers sign affidavits they have severed their guild member-, NOW HE'S TALKING ship. It was Helfand's Jan. 16 deadline for managers to quit the guild that forced the- St. Nick's. p'rornot- ers to try.. to move . to Baltimore when they could make no New York matches." Jim Norris, president of. the International Boxing Club, broke the deadlock Friday when he sided with Helfand against the guild.- - , ;.:. . The guild; groggy and broken, in spirit, postponed a meeting scheduled, for last .night by its board of directors. Instead, a. session of the full membership has been set for Wednesday. Although many managers perhaps a majority of the 69 .members. ^ will quit the ship, the guild probably will continue to operate, according to a source close to the'situation.. .

Most people think that the gentleman who owns and drives a new Cadillac must necessarily be blessed with an abundance of this world's goods. But the truth of the matter is that a great many motorists of relatively modest means—like the happy man you see here—sit at the wheel of the "car of cars." For wisdom and practicality lead to Cadillac- just as surely as prominence and prosperity! Listen, for, a moment, to this remarkable assembly of facts—and see if you don't agree. The Series Sixty-Two Coupe ... the beautiful •nd inspiring motor car pictured above... costs just a few dollars more than many can in the "medium-price" bracket. Cadillac's dependability is so extraordinary that the car, is virtually -free from all but the purely routine requirements of service. . A Cadillac stretches a gallon of gasoline over so many miles that it is actually the rival of much smaller, lighter cars in this regard. And a Cadillac will retain its value over the years better than any other automobile in the land. The conclusion is, we think, self-evident: Cadillac ownership is not only wonderful and thrilling—but sound and sensible as well. Why not stop in soo,n for a look and a ride? You'll discover the most beautiful Cadillac ever built... the finest-performing Cadillac of al) time . . . and the greatest value in Cadillnc history. That's Cadillac's magical combination for 1956 —and iff waiting for you now in our showroom. SULLIVAN-NELSON CHEVROLET CO. , Ml W. Walnut '« ' ; Hte**
