NEW YORK (fl't— The nation's longest basketball winning streak—12 straight by New York University— was at nn end today because a red-hot aggregation of Mountaineers from West Virginia capitalized on the expert scouting of their coach.

Ark. iVPi — Coach Presley Askew says his Arkansas RaM>rbacks, who will open heir Southwest Conference basket- boll campaign agalnM the Texas Aggies here tomorrow night, were- Vt wrecked by. the loss of Toar Hester. It is ridiculous to say the loss of a 1-footcr will not hurt us," the mentor declared last. "But he was lot our whole team." He also expressed belief that the Razorbacks will do all right against the Aggies, who beat them by three in the pre-season conference tournament at Dallas. "I think we can win if we play the game we are capable of playing." he said. The coacli picked Orvii Elkins, a fi-5 sophomore who, like He.ster, hails from Louisana. to take over the center post .vacated earlier this week when Hester quit school. Natural Ability Klkins 'possesses much natural ability ag a- post player and he's working hard." Askew said. "Actually, our defense will be better with Elkins In there than it was with Hester. Where we miss Toar is when it comes to scoring." Askew added that other members of the team will have to shoulder more of the point-making bun den than they have In the past. He said the entire team had worked harder than ever since the Play in the Blythevllle Y's Grade School Basketball League got underway this afternoon at the Ar-j ^ 0 ~f^ anmMl faaftM Dan(met mory, I Monday night Meeting In first games were Yar- Tnc bam)TOt honorillg uiylhevllte bro and Sudbiny at 3:45 anri Con- Hish school's football team will be (ml and Langc at 4:30.
