In toi\H',ht's thira game Newtuk and Pocahontas will battle it out for consolation honors, Wilson had little trouble In dls- posfne of Hardy. Led by their center, Tim Underwood, the Bulldogs jumped to an early lead ami were never .seriously pressed. Underwood rimmed in 25 points to load the scoring while Ills twin brother. Tom. was scoring seven, the same number .scored by Forrester. Felkins led Hardy with 10 points, In the quarter-final game yesterday Pocahontas ran wild against Parftgould with n G3-lfi decision. Farflgoulcl tied a tournament record by scoring only two goals from the field. Their other 12 points were garnered nt the free throw line.

Preliminary studies by the Smithsonian institution have .shown that central Texas was long inhabited before the arrival oi known Indian tribes. This shows the hold Ben Hogan lias over the rest ot the professional Kolf continent, and over the public who wants to .see him succeed In his unprecedented comeback try. When they picked him xip from beside a west Texas highway last February, doctors doubled if lie would live. Then it became clear that he would. But few believed that he would recover from liis terrible traffic injuries to play golf again. Yet lie has. He went 18 tense holes In 73 strokes yesterday to open the 24tK renewal of the richest tournament in the winter swing. He trailed 15 other golfers, but it made no difference to the spectators. They were on his side, lie was nervous, but they v.'ere on edge too. Maybe more so. When he i;ot into n dispute about photographers snapping his picture- as he shot, Hogan was calm. But the gallery booed. and .shouted: "Throw them out," i "take their cameras nv,ay.' Ed Furgol of Royal Oak, Mich., who has suffered from a withered left arm since childhood, turned In for the day's low. Normally such H performance would have had the crowd muttering to itself. Just uelore dusk, Ellsworth Vines nm Jerry Barter, both of Pasadenn came In with 69s. At the 18th green the crowd, what there was of it applauded politely. Most of the record gallery of 9.000 was off down Riviera's 7020-yard course, righ behind Hogan. He was tired at the finish, bii he proved he could go 18 holes o tournament play. Many fell, however, that despite his gallant try. le wouldn't be up there at the end; that he doesn't have the stamina yet for 72 holes of tournament golf. .ams In Cage Spotlight Oklahoma is Upset By Kansas; Missouri Spoiis Roundup bj Hugh l-'ullortnn l)v Ted MeiiT NtAV YORK, Jan. 1.
