Bucky Harris Not Talking About Tigers By BUCKV HARRIS DETROIT UPl — Right at the start. It must be realized that I am taking over a team which I do not know as well as a team that had played for me. In this light, I must reserve many of my comments until I can fully evaluate the personnel in spring training. Offhand, I would say Detroit should be a better balanced team as a whole in 1955. Our winter deal that brought us Ferris Fain, Jack Phillips and Leo Crlstante. a young pitcher with an outstanding record in the Southern Association, could help. There's no reason why Pain shouldn't be in top shape. Actually, I won't know where the weak spots are until I see the club play. I would say that Cleveland, New York, Chicago and Boston should be the toughest this season, but I look for real Improvement in Baltimore, and possibly in Kansas City because of their new surroundings. Yogi Great with Mitt, But Just Another Duffer On the Golf Course By MEKCER BAILEY MIAMI, Fla. (AP) — Yogi Bcrra is a man among men in baseball bul put him on a golf course and he becomes a member of the masses. •fr He IS, in short, a duffer ; no better, no worse than millions of weekend backers who grin proudly when they break 100 and become ecstatic if they crack 90. No one, Yogi least of all, considered the New York Yankee catcher a challenging contender in the 15th National Baseball players golf tournament, which opened today, but Yogi was working at his play. Berra, voted the most valuable player in the American League last year and in 1951, got in a practice round, yesterday. He fired a 49 on the front nine and promptly informed a group of constants: "I'll take on any of you guy-s — If you'll spot me a stroke a hole." No takers. Imprived 2nd N'ine Stretch Drive On in SWC Race Crucial Games On Tap Tomorrow; Hogs Play Rice By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The stretch drive is on in the Southwest Conference basketball race and only one thing is certain: The University of Texas and Tex- s A & M sometimes kings of all they survey in the conference are going to "fight" it out for the cellar. | Yogi's game improved' on the back nine and he zipped home with a 44 for a 93 total. Par for the 6,310-yard Miami Springs Municipal course is 3535—70. Three favorites to grab the 1955 title are defending champion Freddie Hutchlnson, ex-manager of the Detroit Tigers; Lou Kretlow, Baltimore Orioles pitcher who lost to Hutchinson in the finals; and Alvtn Dark, New York Giants shortstop who won the 1951 tourney. Other diamond stars competing include AI Lopez, Cleveland man- the Chieftians after a momentous ager; Birdie Tebbetts, Cincinnati first half in which the Aggiec made ! manager; Russ Meyer and Don only five field goals in 19 attempts I Newcombe, Brooklyn pitchers; and OCU polled six in 23 tries. i Jim Piersall, Boston Red Sox out- A Baylor victory Saturday night | «elder; Virgil Trucks. Chicago wouldn't do the Bears any good but' it'would give TCU a firmer hold on first place. The loser in the Arkansas Rice tilt at Payetteville will be out of running for the title. Southern Methodist plays Baylor in one of three Saturday night games and a victory for the Ponies could put them in a tie with Texas Christian for the lead. Rice and Arkansas, with identical 4-3 conference records, fight for third place and a contenders' spot. And Texas and Texas A&M meet in the night's third game wiih the cellar position going to the loser. At Oklahoma City Thursday night, Texas A&M and Oklahoma City University put on one of the season's slowest games.

Armorel was seeded number two in the Mississippi County Tournament drawings and Osceola was placed in the number three slot. Although the outcome of the game has nothing to do with the tourney undoubtably Armorel will be out to show . their second place seeding was correct. In turn, Osceola will want to further their belief they should have been given the number two position. In the last meeting of these two teams the Semtnoles won a 63-53 margin and by virtue of their win should be a slight favorite to take the winning honors tonight. Coach Austin Banner's number one problem will be to keep the high-scoring Carl Patterson from | burning the nets and to retain the ; sharp edge his Seminoles have I demonstrated in their past eight games. The Indians are shooting for their ninth straight win of the season and their thirteenth victory overall. Their record to date is 12-5. Since beginning their winning streak they have won over Luxora, Caraway, Burdette, Gosnell (twice), Armorel, Marked Tree and Dell. Their most recent victory 80-52 count over Gosnell night.
