WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINE Holy Cross Back In Groove, Notches Sixth Straight Win By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS When Lester (Buster) Sheary began coaching basketball at Holy Cross in 1948, lie had some mighty big shoes to fill. He replaced Alvin (Doggie) Julian, whose Crusaders had won 65 and lost 10 in his three seasons at Holy Cross. Basketball Scores By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS .Holy Cross 82, St. Francis (Bkn) 56 N. C.

Murray Bailey established a new- Baylor scornig record. He w-as fouled as he drove lor the basket in the last 18 seconds of the game. Already he had tied the record set in 1953 by John Starkey. He calmly potted two three throws to make his season scoring mark 350, with 20 points for the night. Starkey's old season 348. record was But Sheary, in making the jump from high school to college coaching, has done a good job. Under him, the Crusaders have won 148 games against only 31 setbacks— including'a 12-2 record this season. Holy Cross won the Sugar Bowl and NIT tournaments last year, but the outlook didn't appear bright at the outset of the current campaign. Graduation had taken its toll with high-scoring Togo Palazzi and playmaker Ronnie Perry among the missing. In addition, last year's freshman squad Was poor. Nevertheless, with Tommy Hein- .sohn taking up the scoring slack, the Crusaders have been nearly as strong as ever. Idle for the past two weeks because of midyear examinations, the Crusaders, ranked Hth in the weekly Associated Press poll, returned to action last night with an 82-56 triumph over St. Francis of Brooklyn. It was Holy Cross* sixth straight victory. Helnsohn came off the bench and scored 20 points to break open a tight game. Three others of the nation's top 20 teams, North Carolina State (No. 6). Dayton (No. 15) and Missouri (tied for No, 17), played last night. Vic Molodet tallied 34 points as N. C. State cams from behind to, turn back Virginia 93-91 in an Atlantic Coast Conference game. Dayton, paced by big Bill Uhl's 23 points, bowled over Western Kentucky 73-67. Missouri moved into undisputed possession of second place i n Big Seven with an 34-57 triumph over Iowa State. In another Big Seven test, Kansas State put on a second-half surge to whip Oklahoma 71-60 as Dick Stone scored 25 points. Wichita, sinking 30 free throws, downed Detroit 80-75 in a Missouri Valley fray. Missouri Player Picked on Pan-Am Baseball Team EAST LANSING. Mich.

Arkansas Tech Wins Again 95-73 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS It's doubtful whether anyone was surprised, but Arkansas Tech has marked up another victim in its unchecked march toward the Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference basketball crown. The Wonder Boys stretched their victory string to el?ht last night by walloping Arkansas College 95-73 at Batesvllle. Tech Is unbeaten In the AIC. The Highlanders now have a 4-6 record.

(Courier News Photo) Booster Club to Honor Whitworth And Chick Cage Team at Banquet The Chickasaw Booster Club has set March 18 as the date for their banquet honoring Blytheville's ,J. B. (Ears) Whitworth and members of the Chick basketball squad. The banquet is scheduled for Hotel Noble and tickets, which will sell for $1.50 each, will go on sale soon, a spokesman for the club said. Neilsen Predicts Bannister, Landy Will Quit Retirement By WILL GRCVISLEV NEW YORK (AP) — Denmark's Gunnar Neilsen has predicted both Roger Bannister and John Landy would come out of retirement to run the 1500 meters in the 1956 Olympic games — and he said he hadn't the slightest doubt who would win it. "Bannister, of course/' emphatically said the tall, slender Dane who currently is waging a hot indoor mile and world war with America's chesty Wes Sanlee. At its meeting Monday night, the Booster Club decided to make the banquet a double-barreled affair, honoring both the Chick bas- keteers and Whltworth who is the new head football coach at the University of Alabama. Whttworth, who starred as a guard for the Chick footballers in the 1920's was named coach at Alabama recently to replace Harold (Red) Drew. To Sell Ads Prior to his appointment to the Alabama post, Whltworth was head football coach, at Oklahoma A&M. In other action Monday night, members of the Booster Club voted to sell program advertising to help defray expenses of the District 3A junior high school tournament which will be played here Feb. 14-19. Sale of the program advertising started yesterday and a club spokesman said that the goal is $703 which was the Paps' bid for the tournament. Favors 5-MH1 Tax However, it was pointed out that a-s much advertising as possible would be sold and all in excess of S703 would go toward the purchase of a movie camera for the Blythe lie High School Athletic Depart ment. The club also went on record -as favoring the proposed five mill ta- for the Blytheville School Dis- trict and voted to conduct a "get- out-the-voie" campaign prior to the special election. 'For the big race, the one that counts, Bannister Is the greatest— too good at tactics, too much up here." He tapped his temple to Indicate brains. Neilsen said if Bannister were to come to this country for a series of races with Santee — such as the present indoor campaign— Santee probably would win three out of five meetings. "But when they met in an important event, such as maybe the Olympics, it would be Bannister," the Scandinavian comet added. Strong Runner "Santee is very strong and a great natural runner but Bannister is smarter." England's Bannister was the first to crack the four-minute barrier in the mile with a 3:59.4 performance but Australia's Landy later bettered the mile record with 3:53. However, Bannister beat Landy in head-to-head clash at Vancouver last summer. The 26-year-old from Copenhagen shrugged off his off-track squabble with Santee which, he said, had been overemphasized. "We are the best of friends," he added. Meet Next Saturday The two tangle again next Saturday night in the Wan'amaker mile at Madison Square Garden j and Nielsen said with a wink, "I ! have new tactics—all my secret. I'll do better." The Dane, who had split races with Santee at Philadelphia and Washington, was beaten by 30 yards at Boston last Saturday night when Santee bettered the World indoor mark with four min-jord was 4:05.3 set by Gil Doddi utes, 3.8 seconds.
