Hector took over the lead early in the second period and at half- minutes to go, had what appeared to be a comfortable 9-point edge. But the Lions flreQ up a victory spurt in the final three minutes, confused the Cats with a tight press defense and a fast break offense, and whittled away the lead in fine championship form. The Lions had to call their ace forward Joe Hauls off the bench to get things going. Rauls, who has had a siege of the flu, was benched in favor of Atkeison but he had to enter the fray to pull the Lions ahead. Rauls Hit 12 Rauis led Leachville's scoring with 12 points. Galyean was high Wolfpack fans claim NCS, No. 2 in this week's Associated Press poll, is the fairest in the land, with an obvious disregard for top- ranked Kentucky. If it's true what they say about Dixie's best, it should show tonight when the Wolf- pack plays at home to fourth- ranked LaSalle and the incomparable Tom Gola.

Shelton Blake Fifteen Fights Are on Card; Winners to Mid-South Meet OSCEOLA — What is predicted as the most outstanding fight card ever to appear in Osceola's Northeast Arkansas Golden Gloves Tournament will be reeled off tonight with the first event to get underway at 8:00. Fifteen fights are on tap for the GG followers and although the battles during the first three nights were outstanding tonight's card undoubtedly will keep the fight fans in a frenzy throughout the fifteen stanzas. The winners of tonight's bouts will trek to the Mid-South Tournament held in Memphis two weeks hence and it is believed fighters from this area this year will give a better account of themselves than in their past representations. The winner of each bout will receive a golden glove and the runner-up will be awarded a silver glove in lieu of his reaching the finals in the tourney. The team with the most winners in the finals will receive a team trophy. Tournament officials are looking for perhaps the largest turnout of fans tonight than ever before in the history of the Osceola Tournament since the fight card is very attractive.
