Besides looking for the boy who wanted to enroll in the j ail-male school, Foldberg said he had chosen players who can 1 think, graduate and improve with personal attention, according j to Fletcher.

He declined to comment on the lie detector tests taken by Southwest Conference officials in investigations into loop game fixing charges. Daisa briefly described it as ‘a grueling session**.

Young Broncos Dive Into Baseball Friday By JOHN WEST Eagle Sports Editor Pressed tor pre-season practice and short on proven pitching and hitting the Bryan Broncos open the 1962 baseball schedule in Waco Friday—like it or not — at almost half strength. SFA takes on University High In its season opener and plays its first home game Tuesday against Brenham at 4 p.m. All non - district games, with the exception of Conroe, will get under way at 4:00. District 1S-AAAA tilts, along with the Tiger contest in Bryan, are set for 7:00 p.m. Travis Park, the Broncos’ home field along with A&M Consolidated High and Allen Academy, is still under-going refurbishing, Chief remaining jobs, according to city parks and recreation director Jack Ashworth, include installation of a new scoreboard and lights. The latter project is expected to be completed by March 20. Minus three of six returning lettermen. the Broncos take on a club two games deep into play tomorrow. The Trojans went down before defending 13- 4A champion Waco, 24-1. in its first game and rebounded to clip Cameron, 2-1. Bryan, fourth in the district last season with a 5-4-1 record, used two wins over the Trojans 9-1 and 6-0. to post a 10-5-1 season record. The Broncos will be going Frank Stratta, infielder Bobby I Top returning hitter is Stratta, Seale and outfielder Neal who safetied 14 times in ^ 44 Thompson, all members of j season plate appearances last pend on. Sophomore John Her rera of Bryan and freshman Larry Holub of Louise are the other right handers. Southpaws include Eddie Palko of New Albany, Ind., Gervase Hutzler of La Coste and F. J. Catalena, also of Bryan. FIVE LOCALS, including Crenshaw, dot Casey’s starting lineup.

Seale batted 304, Stockton, .250, and Thompson, .216. “We’re going to need some well - timed hits to win our share of games.” The Bronco coach .indicated that if Stockton and Stratta came through SFA could be a title contender. Vass figured Waco, with five they like," Vass added, "other- barters back, has a gMd chance wise they will report Monday Assistant coach Dick Munday, who has handled the baseball team in Vass’ absence, has named a starting lineup for Friday’s game. Gregory Rodriguez will catch, James Campise, who hit .300 last season, is at first and Joe Quintana, ,167, is at short. All three are senior lettermen, Billy Bob Sanders, a squad- man, is at second; Moses Herrera, junior squadman. third; Norman Scott, senior squadman, left field; Jerry Bishop, senior squadman, center, and sophomore Dickie Barron or junior Phil Cox in right. Cox, a squadman last year, could get the starting nod on the mound, according to Munday. Others who could possibly see action include Sanders, who pitched some last year; sophs Jimmy Luther and Gene Andrus. Six lettermen, including the three top hitters, are gone from the 1961 nine, Jerry Ballard, against the Waco team without 1 Les Crenshaw, Lonnie Williams, two of its veteran pitchers in j Ray Berry, Tommy Carll and seniors Tom Stockton and Joe! Pete Scanlin have graduated. B roussa rd Na med All-SWC3rd Year DALLAS M — The 1962 all- Southwest Conference basketball team wound up a six-man outfit because the coaches, while agreeing on the top four players, had differences of opinion on the fifth. Their choices are Jan Louder milk of Southern Methodist, Del Ray Mounts and Harold Hudgens of Texas Tech, Carroll Broussard of Texas A&M, Phil Reynolds of Texas Christian and Jerry Carlton of Arkansas. The last two tied for the fifth spot. LOUDERMILK, the top conference scorer and leader of SMU’i co - champions, and Mounts, talented scorer for the co-champion Red Raiders, were unanimous selections. Broussard, who has broken all A&M records, lacked one of getting every vote. Hudgens,¡milk 6-foot-6, i Tech's tall man, was two short [ of being a unanimous choice. Closely behind Reynolds and Carlton in the voting was Tommy Boyer of Arkansas. Six team members are seniors. Four are repeaters from last year’s all-conference crew —Mounts, Loudermilk, Hudgens and Broussard, LOUDERMILK led the league with a season total of 493 points. Carlton was second with 438, Reynolds third with 420, Broussard fourth with 414, Hudgens fifth with 388 and Mounts seventh with 382. Boyer had 387 for sixth. Tech’s 6-foot - 10 Hudgens and 5-foot - 10 Mounts are the tallest and shortest members on the team. Reynolds stands an even 6 feet, Carlton 6-foot-1, Broussard 6‘-foot-5 and Louder- to repeat. “Austin and McCallum could easily win it too,” he surmised, “and Bryan, if we can get the pitching and hitting in the right places, can win some too.” The veteran coach figures on Thompson — along with Stockton and Stratta — for starting hurlers with Cox. Sanders, Luther and Andrus for relief. Rick Qualtrough. a sophomore, and senior Charles Ferguson are also out for pitching jobs. Ferguson has been sick. Stockton posted a 2.42 earned run average in ’61. The 6-0, 180- pounder gave up 40 hits, 25 runs—13 earned — and 29 bases on balls, striking out 52. Stratta worked 17 2/3 innings for a 2.54 ERA. Other squadmen include catchers Spencer Tanksley and Lonnie Stabler, sophs, and junior Johhny Peacock; Lawrence Pavlas and Bob Heaton, first; the Ritchies and Rudy Marin, second; Jerry Maxwell and Isaac Montoya, short; Kenneth Powers and George Lee McDonald, third; Lowell Tewell, Albert Morales and Kenneth Gott Capacity Crowd For SWC Playoff FORT WORTH MB — A capacity crowd is assured for the Southern Methodist-Texas Tech basketball game Friday night to see which of the Southwest Conference co-champs goes into the NCAA playoffs. Fans have grabbed all the tickets to 7,166- seat Meyer Coliseum. Moon Looks Forward To Ravine Swing By JOE REICHLER Associated Pres» Sports Writer VERO BEACH, Fla. tfv—Wally Moon, who found a hitter’s haven in the Los Angeles Coliseum last year, said today he’s looking forward to playing in the Dodger’s new stadium in Chavez ravine where he hopes to be able to go back to his natural swing. It’s true I enjoyed some success with that left field screen at the Coliseum,” he said, “but that Coliseum swing I adopted ruined me in the other parks. Every time we went to another park I had to re-adjust my swing.” A LEFT-HANDED hitter, Moon developed what he called an insideoutswing — a delayed stroke that often enabled him to slice the ball over the 251-foot distant left field screen at the Coliseum. He had such spectacular success with it that 14 of his 17 homers sailed over that screen. Plenty of his slices must have bounced off that nearby screen because he batted .382 in the Coliseum as against .266 away from home. Moon led the Dodgers in hitting last year. His .328 mark ranked fourth in the National League and his 88 runs batted in was the high water mark of his eight-year career in the majors. Moon has only one complaint. He feels he didn’t play enough last year. A GUY IS better off when he playes every day,” said Moon. He would be more productive. I batted in 88 runs last year and missed about 150 times at bat. feel if I had played every lers’ leading returning hitter at .324, James Josey, first; frosh Pete Scanlin, center field, and Catalena, left. Catching will be big Jim Barcelo of Deer Park, a 6-1, 200 pounder; returning starter Tony Caliva will be at second and Frank Robison, who hit .136 last season, is in right. The Ramblers play a return match with St. Thomas in Houston Wednesday, meet Wharton in Wharton next Friday in their conference opener and catch the Pioneers at Travis March 19 in their next home game.

Coach Homer Norton, coach of the 1939 Texas Aggie national football champions, and his wife expect to break ground Monday or Tuesday for a $200,000 restaurant on Highway 6 in College Station. Norton, 56, was in the city Wednesday and today, making final arrangements for the ground breaking of the establishment to be known as “Coach Norton’s Pancake House.” The approximately 200 - capacity edifice will be constructed on the corner of Highway 6 and Kyle Street in College Station. THE FORMER Aggie coach has a similar business in Rosenberg—-gathering place for mem bers of the ’39 champs when A&M is playing football in Houston. Norton officially an nounced the new B-CS restaur ant, which is to be completed in about four months, today. R. B. Butler is general contractor for the restaurant. ‘ I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time,” Norton stated. “Actually I feel like I’m coming home. We have many close, dear friends in College Station, Bryan and throughout the state. So many of them travel in and out of College Station it’s going be a great chance to visit.*’ "ACTUALLY I dreamed of this long before I quit coaching,” the white-haired Aggie mentor said. “I always wanted to do two things; own a motel and a real high class eating place.” After a 14-year tenure as head coach at A&M. Norton resigned the post in 1947 and opened his motel business in Rosenberg, “This place will be my big prize,” he added, “and I imagine it will be the largest and finest of its kind between Dallas and Houston.’’ The 200-seat restaurant will feature 25 varieties of Norton’s nationally famous pancakes a» well as steak, shrimp, chicken and other foods. Completely carpeted throughout, the pancake house will provide the finest of kitchen equipment and fixtures, according to Norton, with all-around parking and an eight-foot covered walkway on the sides and front. NORTON indicated a manager wrould be in charge of the establishment, as in Rosenberg, and that he would commute from Rosenberg. Coach Norton stated he would probably spend most of his time in College Station, however. The building was to be lined off today and set on the lot for construction to get under way immediately.
