8 THE BRAZ08POBT fACTS BRAZOSPQRTS By GEORGE FERGUSON FACTS SPORTS fiDlTOtt Sports Center In Houston Of major interest to Brazosport fans attending the Bluebonnet Bowl game in Houston Saturday is the pledge by the city's hotel and restaurant associations that there will be 80 increase Ln regular rates and prices during the week of the gam«. The irtrchants and entertainment enterprise owners have exposed an eagerness for visitors to come to Houston to have a good time, se« a fine game, enjoy Houston hospitality, and not be "gouged." The University of Alabama "Million Dollar Band" will per- forn-. at the Texas-Alabama game in the Bluebonnet Bowl Saturday. In the field entrance the band will play a tune ap- propntito to the theme of the day's haUtime, "There's no Business Like Show Business." A traditional feature of each Alabama halftimc is a novelty, precision drill. The drill is climaxed with a marching maneuver forming the letters A and T. To sa'ute Texas, the band will play "The Eyes of Texas" and as the band swiftly faces the Alabama stands the tune will switch to "Yea Alabama." Other outstanding acts will be performed by the great- Alabama Band. Bwaosport and Brasoria County, Texas, Wed., December 14, I960 Alabama T- Point Favorite While the Texas vs. Alabama clash in the second annual Bluebonnet Bowl game at Rice Stadium id Houston Saturday is not yet ft complete sellout, bowl committee members are confident their goal of a full house wilf be ittained. With the game only three days iway, the great majority of tickets have been sold and daily) sale* have been brisk at the Hoa*tan toroM-thMounter locations of Hoit't and CHhman'g gporttng good* store* and Rice gym. H the game does fill the httge and magnificent Rice Stadium ft will represent something of a "miracle" in major bowl game circles, for never a post-season grid presentation gained such solid and 'big time" status' In such a short time as (he Bine- bonnet Bowl. All the current major bowl* that have been in existence tor many year* had to go through somwhat extensive building periods of modest crowds before they became firmly established. 1 But the Bluebonnet last year; had 55,000 in its debut that pre? sented two conference champion* and top ten ranked teams !n Ctemson and TCU with demson a 2J-7 victor, In itt second time out, the Blue- botmet again has a team hi the nation'* top ten, Alabama, a club that was rated ninth In both the AP and UPI finals polls. The famed Crimson Tide, play; ing in a bowl game tor the fourteenth time, has one of the [top^season records of any major bowl participant at 8-1—1. Meantime, while the University oi Texas was down a bit in the poll* via n T—3 record, it is noteworthy the combined point total ff their losses that separated them from an undefeated season was only nine points. Two of their Conquerors, by slim margins in nlp-and-tuck games, play in the Sugar (Rice) and Cotton [Arkansas) bowl contest*. Otic of their victims, Baylor, 19 • in the Gator Bowl, Texas boosters frankly contend their club deserved a higher rating because of its very rugged schedule, and a conquest of ninth-ranked Alabama would uphold that opinion. Alabama Is a one point favorite to beat Texas in the football classic Saturday. The game which oddsmnkers have established as he closest of the post season matches, starts at 1 p.m., Hou- ston time, The game wffl be We- vised nationally over CBS-tV. Blticbonnet officials are rooting for the weatherman to come through as magnificently as he did for the debut game last yenr when the game was played in th» bright sunshine. The temperature was 57 degrees. The odd* are good that the weather will be good again as this area usually ha* quite comfortable conditions IB December. l-REVIEWOFTHEYEAR^By Alan Maver. i . i ——> FEBRUARY••*•• i i I BRAZOSPORT MEAT CO.

Los meet in the offering, noting its adaptability to outboard living. K you're planning to buy or bnild a home, the outboard people recommend that you pay particular attention to the garage of any home you consider. A two-car garage is much' to be preferred, but if this feature cannot be had, it is possible to have a one-car garage built flve or six feet wider at little additional cost. An average-sized outboard can be rolled in and out on Its trailer quite easily, and it's much better to have the rig under - ' American Football League's championship playoff at The average garage door is seven feet high. »> modest additional cost, 8-foot doors can be installed instead while the gara"e is .being built, the windshields, flagstaffs, etc., of trailered runabouts ride quite high and this feature will help to get the boat in and out of the garage conven- ently. Double-width doors, which :liminate the -center post, make t easier to get wide-beam boats in and out.
