King Back on Job In Laos, Indochina VIENTIANE, Laos. Indochina. —His Majesty Sisavang Vong. the King ol Laos, Ls back in Vientiane t*ll's Arkonsai SporteH«— Hester Had Everything but Spirit; He's Too Nice to Be a Great Star by CARL Btl.L ' LITTLE ROCK WV-Maybe Leo Durocher's remark that "nice fays finish last" doetn't always apply. But. in Toar Hester, the basketball giant who lias given up the game and a college education at Arkansas, you, can sec a case of a guy who was too nice to be a great star. This 7-footer had the size and the natural ability to be a terrific scorer. He didn't have to throw the ball up to make a lield goa); he could drop it down Into the basket. But opponents don't stand idly* __ — by • and let a big boy walk that close lo the basket. They block, slap, claw and scratch. Hester didn't have the drive to get through that kind of defense or to control rebounds as he could have. Some call it competitive spirit. Maybe "dog-eat-dog attitude" would be a better way to describe it. Los Angeles Open to Start Golf Campaign LOS ANGELES (AP)—The 195: professional golf campaign, will be launched here tomorrow when about 200 players tee off in the first round of the $17,500 Los Angeles Open tournament.

The j against Communist - led VIetmtnh " Whatever it is, it seems to be necessary for success in big time athletics today. Hester didn't have it. He prefer- ed Jo be nice. His coaches tried to make him et rougher, show more determina ion, He didn't do It except on rare occasions when he seemed to get temper riled by the physical unishment he took under the acltboards. Those were the occa- ions when he scored the most X)ints, Perha ps, then, dis illusion m ent *ad something to do with Toar's leclsion to Quit school. Didn't Like Studies True, he didn't like to study and nade no bones about it. But when ie e nlered the un 1 versity two a nd . half years ago he loved basket- jail enough to take classwork with t. But he soon found out big time ollege basketball wasn't the same iflsy.-going game of fun he had ;njoyed in high school. It was more work. There's another angle to the disillusionment possibility. When Hester came to Arkansa-s from his Louisiana farm home, he im media tely w as put on t he spot with a tremendous buildup. Athletic Ditector John Bainhin tried to subdue the rush to hail the inexperienced freshman as a future All- America- But he couldn't. Toar turned, out to be a pretty good ball player. He was averaging 15,7 points a game this season junior and. in his first role as a real "regular." Not » Superman But that was not as much as he was expected to do. He was supposed to be something super. Toar must have been disappointed when he didn't attain the glamorous heights which had been re- serve'd for him by fans and sports writers and publicity men. Coach Presley Askew undoubtedly was disappointed, too. We doubi that Arkansas ever vs'ent to w uch trouble to woo and win an her athlete. Askew practically •ed in Louisiana until Hester lied at Arkansas. He spent a lo time there afterwards, too, jus be sure the big boy wouldn' :cidft to do just wlmt he has don ow—give up college, and basket all, to go hack to the farm.
