Led by forward and playmaker Joe Lynn Vowell, the chicks jumped to a five point lead after eight minutes of play. Then their pivotman big Montroe Holland, got hot and the Tribe was off.

Referee Ruby Goldstein had it 6-2-1 and Judge Billy Healy 5-3-1, both for earlier, ana Judge Charley Shorten scored it 5-4 for Gavilan going into the tenth.

'Dyess and Missco Win Shawnee s Tourney JOINER, Dec. 15.—The Dyess boys and the Missco girls were crowned champions of their respective brackets in Shawnee High School'i invitational tournament here last night. Dyess' sky-scraping Eagles won* the boys division by squeaking by the host Bhawnee team 48-46 in the finals and Missco-won the girls' trophy on a forfeit from Marlon. However, the Missco sextet played Shawnee in an exhibition game and won 56-37. The boys' game was tha best of the tournament with the never-say- die Indians of Shawnee, gamely fighting back In the last half to close a 13-point gap on the taiier and favored Eagles, turning the last half into » breath-taking thriller. The heretofore smooth operating Eagles relaxed for ]ust a moment on the cushion of a 13-point lead late in the third quarter and before the period had ended they awoke to find the scrappy Indians had pulled to within seven points. • Then the red-hot Indians started pulling up even closer and only some timely late rebounds by Lemons. Dyess' six-toot, five Inch sophomore, and a last-minute freeze, saved the victory for Coach Tom Parks' crew. The Indians, led by the dead eye shooting of pivotman Welch and beautiful floor play of forward Robertson, outscored and outplayed the Eagles in the last half but Dyess' first hnlf margin was too much.

Games A college president, an athletic director and football bowl games, By THE A&SOCIATEn PRESS coach spoke up in Arkansas yesterday in defense of - " presents from throughout the President Carl Peng of Arkansas« State, whose 1S51 team already has played in one bowl and is preparing to perform in another, said: "Perhaps bowl games are responsible for some of the evils of football today, but I don't think they can be blamed for all that U at- at all. "I feel that many colleges are conducting their sports programs on a sound moral basis and possibly that a majority of colleges maybe suffering from a. minority whose practices are not morally sound." Arkansas state Coach Frosty England didn't see the postseason attractions as an evil, either. He suggested, however, that they should be playoffs between conference champions—with participants being chosen automatically by right of championships and no picking being done by" Bowl Selection Committees. State defeated Camp Breckinridge in the Refrigerator Bowl Dec. 2 it will play stetson In the Tangerine Bowl Jan. 1. John Barnhill, University of Arkansas Athletic director who has coached seven bowl teams, declared: "Bowls are a part of American life. They have never been involved in scandal." Barnhiil was head coach or assistant coach of five Tennessee teams which played in bowls and led Arkansas into the 1941 Cotton Bowl and the 1948 Dixie Bowl. He said he believed the college presidents recommending abolition of bowl games "are out of hounds," adding; 'I feel that bowls are fine if brought under supervision of the colleges or conferences. Financial galas from the bowls can enable colleges to do so much good for their institutions." He suggested that conferences di- receipts among their vide bowl member Barnhtll also expressed opinion that the critics of the post-season games are "those from institutions which never expect to go to a bowl and those from big schools which do not need the money."
