Jim. ». (UP) — The Arkansas Raimrbacks continue their mid-season rest this week nfler watching Baylor's Bears edge Into the top Southwest Con- (ercnre spot last week with victories over Texas Christian and Rl« last •week. Bsvlor now has five victories and no defeats, followed closely by Arkansas with four wins and no defeats and Texas with three victories PAGE SEVEN Shawnee's Class B. Cage Entry pooses were bowing to the Helena- * Helena Juniors 25 to 20 in the preliminary, game, Both tilt.s were closely contested and evenly played with neither winning team gaining what might be called n decisive victor)-. For the Chicks is iva-s their fourth consecutive victory and their seventh in nine starU and for the Paps it was their Uurd straight set-back in seven games. The Chicks jumped to an early lead with forward Bob Mullen taking the opening tip-off down the court for two points. The Indians launched their Ecorlng attack seconds laid 1 when big Frank Fischel. their center, sunk a one-hand push shot from back of the free throw circle to tie the score. The scoring remained even during the greater part of the first period until Chick guard Dennie Gentry .sunk a free throw in the closing seconds to give the Tribe a 7 to 8 lead at the end of the initial stanza. The Chicks found themselves in the second quarter and started hitting from al! angles. They out- pointed the Indiana 12 to 6 in that period to gain a ID to 13 halftime lead. Two Players Penalized Paced by sharp-shooting guard Frank King the Indians pulled to £^'un four points of the Chicks t^'-iig the third period but started falling back in the closing minutes of the gaiiie. Their tiopcs of overcoming the Chick lead were blown .sky high in the final minutes when their big center and defensive star Fi.schel was ejected from the game along \vixh Chick forward Dudley Hardy for unsportsmanlike Conduct. With Fischei's re-bound work last week left the conference rue* three-Irani affair with Ric« and TCU practically out of the running. Texas A and M\ and Southern Nfethodist already have been eliminated. Baylor apparently received a break in it* final conference games, getting Arkansas at home for both games and playing Texas at home In one same and at Austin In the other. Texas must travel to Fay- ettevllle to tangle with the Porlcers. Action 1» limited this week with only two conference games booked, both for Saturday. Baylor plays Texas A. nnri M. at College station, and the University of Texas clashes with Southern Methodist at Dallas.
