Lubbock played the Lamesans a decent game Wednesday night in Ifiibbock, although the Tornado stormed through for a 32 to 23 victory. The Westerners looked more potent than in any recent games, with three new-comers, Venable, Kerr and Odden, in Lubbock's lineup. In the Amarillo game at Lamesa last night, Peterson whose aggressiveness impressed Pampans, \vs5 elected from the game in the first half on personal fouls. Flainview will hold the edge over the Harvesters when the two teams meet here tomorrow night, by virtue of the Bulldog's record against the Sandies. Amarillo beat Plainview by only two points whereas the Sandies walloped the Harvesters by six points. Scores were tied three times' : during the plaihview-Ama- riljo battle'Wednesday night. Bulldog Starters Rcy Neal and Mally Chisholm are the only Bulldog starters who made n trip last season with the Bulldog A string. Knowing last year that all of his traveling string would graduate, Coach Lovvem cast about for captain timber and decided to take Neal and Chisholm to the district meet at Lubbock, to give them a little experience. Neal was elected captain of the 1935 squad and Is proving outstanding at a guard position. Taliaferro is center, Arthur, Porter, Miller and Dean, forwards. If Scott Is not in the starting lineup, Coach Mitchell has Rose Irving, Hassel, Herring to choose from. The other starters will probably be forwards, Nash and Stokes dreen, J. B.

Panhandle was unable to stop Miss Preston, McLean's scoring ace, who accounted for 34 of the points made by her team. Miss Barnes of Panhandle led her team's attack with 18 points. The shooting of the teams was outstanding, both under the basket and at long range. The guards were unable to stop the fast-stepping forward wall' successfully. The lineup for McLean included O. Back, Preston, Young, Ayres, Swafford, Glenn and C. Back. The Panhandle lineup was . Lemons, Smith, Young, Barnes, Shepard, Wass, O'Keefe, Williams and Stevens. • • The McLean Tigers, weakened by the loss of several players who are home with influenza, lost to the Panthers 22 to 13. The Panthers clicked nicely during the first half to take a commanding lead. McLean tried hard in the last half but could not overcome the lead. Risko aril VikeMdeejto FigMThis Eve NEW YORk, Jan. 25. (/PI— Henry Pylkotyski .fights Vincerizo Lasiiaro in Madison Square garden tonight and that's boxing news. For Henry PylKowSki Is none other than Babe Risko, the Syracuse, N. Y., middleweight sensation, and Vihcehzo Lazzaro is better' Itnown as Vince Dundee of NewarkV not long ago ruler of the 160-pound division. Risko, who learned to fight while serving a couple of hitches in the Navy, catapulted himself into the public eye on New Year's day when he walked into the ring against Teddy Yarosz of Pittsburgh and proceeded' to knock the middleweight champion", down six times before winning oh a technical knockout in the seventh round. Yarosz, who had dethroned Dundee three months before, escaped with the title still in his possession 6hly because he had had the foresight to force Risko to come in at 102 pounds, two pounds over the class limit. Whether Risko, respite his inexperience, is championship material possibly will be demonstrated tonight. The betting fraternity has made Dundee an 3 to 5 fnvcrite. The Garden hopes to match the winner of tonight's ten rounder against Yarosz for the title. Texan in Second in Open Golf Meet Matty Bell Is Likely to Get SMU Grid Job DALLAS, Jan. 25. UP) Despite reports that Madison <Matty) Bell, Southern Methodist university line coach, planned to confer today at Abilene with Harbin-Simmons officials concerning the football coaching vacancy there, the belief grew here that he would be appointed head coach at the Methodist school. Dr. Charles C. Selecman, president of Southern Methodist, said that the list of 30 candidates for Ray Morrison's job, left open when he resigned to accept a similar post with Vanderbilt, would be pruned to "three or four of the outstanding candidates Saturday." Bell's' name Headed the list of likely' choices, while it was strongly rumored that Cecil Grigg, backfield coach of the power-house Rice Institute eleven, would be named to the staff. Twenty Grand to Attempt Comeback LOS ANGELES, Jan. 25. (/P)— Twenty Grand steps out in fast company today in an effort to disprove the old sports adage that they never cdme back.

ANTI-KNOCK RATING 70 OCTANE DOCUMENTS OF AUSTIN; INTIMATE Stephen Was Painstaking- Letter Writer (Note: The following is one of a series of weekly articles taken from the .Bexar Archives at the University of Texas. This collection, considered the greatest single ' historical treasure on the North American continent, ha« been catalogued and is now being translated by the University of Texas. It consists of 400,000 panes of original Spanish handwritten documents comprising the official archives of the Mexican government for the department of Bexar, which covered almost the whole of what is now the State of Texas, for the period from 1731, soon after Tejas became a separate province of Mexico, to 1836, to the Battle of Sfin Jacinto. This series of articles will consist principally of quotations from the documents, many of which have heretofore been unpublished, . and will reveal for the first •time what actually transpired during the century in which Texas was transformed from a wilderness inhabited only by savage Indian tribes to an inde- deuendent American republic.) AUSTIN, Jan. 23.—The history of Texas during the decade and a half from 1821 to 1835, the years which immediately preceded the birth of the Republic of Texas, was the history of Austin's colonies. Small wonder, then,' that romance and drama attach themselves to the figure of Texas' first empressario, Stephen Fuller Austin, and small wonder that generations which have followed and will follow him treasure even the smallest fragment of his personal effects, his papers and documents, minute relies which keep aliye his memory and the recol 1 lection of his accomplislijnents in the creation of the commonwealth of Texas. The Austin papers, comprised of materials accumlated by Moses and Stephen F. Austin in the progress of their busy enterprises from Virginia through Missouri and Arkansas to Texas, form the keystone of the invaluable Texas collection in the University of Texas library. Hundreds of other pioneer Texas families have now added their family ' archives to the rich Texas history section of the library, and additional material is constantly being deposited or given outright. Papers Important. Formerly a private collection, the Austin papers have been presented to the university library by the Austin heirs, A^ early as 1902, a description of the papers was made and published by Dr. E. O. Barker, professor of history a'C the uiiiver- sity, and he later published the bulk of the papers themselves. Since then, additional items have ' come to the library from various sources and many of these have not been published in any form. The original papers are almost entirely in manuscript, unbound. About one-third are in Spanish, the rest in English. The Spanish items, principally included in the Bexar archives of the library, are being translated along with! other documents in that collection covering the years 1803-1821. Each letter or document of the Austin papers is inclosed separately in a heavy manila envelope, upon which is written its date and a summary of its contents. Some of the subjects with which the papers deal are: Indian affairs, military affairs, internal improvements, customs duties, census reports, slavery, colonial disturbances, and insurrections. There is ft great deal of material ! upon the beginnings of the Texas revolution and upon the work of the Texas commissioners, of whom Austin was one, in the United States during the first half of 1836. There are several letters from Andrew Jackson and a good niany from Anthony Butler and Joel R. Poinsett. There are approximately four thousand letters and documents in the collection. The Austin papers consist of business memoranda, physiographlcal observations, petitions and memorials to local an'd. superior governments, political addresses and. proclamations, and much personal and official correspondence, according to Dr. Barker. Moses Austin Typical. "Moses Austin illustrated in his own career the typical aspects of the business man in the Westward Movement," Dr. Barker said, "and Stephen F. Austin was, to a degree no approached by any other, guardian and director during its early vicissitudes of a great American commonwealth "Hundreds of letters in the collection are from inconspicuous per- jons, unknown to history, who exerted no ascertainable influence upon the larger events of their time- men who merely lived and strove f,or the betterment of themselves and of their families. Many pieces illustrate minutiae of local administration, too small, no doubt, to interest a; great number of students; anc others have only .a biqg^ph^ value. Taken together, however they give a composite picture whict the most careful selection could not equal in clearness, accuracy, or authoritativeness. "Considering his many harassing duties, Stephen F. Austin was a voluminous and remarkably painstaking letter writer. Of most of his official papers he apparently preserved copies, and we frequently find several drafts of a document, interlined and deleted, almost beyond decipherment before it reached the copy-book stage." Moses Austin was born October 4, 1765, in Durham. Conn., the youngest son of Elies Austin, according to the genealogical record of the Austin family in the university collection of Austin papers. In 1783 he became a dry goods merchant in Philadelphia and a year later entered the import trade and shortly thereafter the wholesale business. In August, 1784, he extended his business to Richmond, Va., and a month later took charge of the establishment in that city. On September 29, 1785 he married Maria Brown, daughter of Abie Brown of New Jersey. Two daughters were bom, but both died in infancy. Stephen Fuller Austin was the first son of the couple, born November 3, 1793, at Austin Ville, Va. Moses and Maria Austin had moved to the Lead Mines in Wythe county, Va., in 1791, where, together with Stephen Austin, Moses' brother, they purchased an estate and established the village of Austin Ville. In 1797 Moses Austin obtained a grant of land, three miles square, in Louisiana from the Spanish government, and removed his family to Mine a Burton, on this property. In 1816, Moses Austin gave up his Mine a Burtorr property to his son, Stephen, and moved his family to Missouri. The family record shows that Stephen Fuller Austin and his younger sister, Emely Margarett Brown Austin, were well educated in the best southern tradition. Stephen spent three years in Colchester academy and two in the Academy at Lexington, Ky,, while Emily, as her name was later" spelled attended Mrs. Beck's boarding school in Lexington for four years, and later spent more than a year at the Hermitage academy in New York James Elijah Brown Austin, a much younger brother, born in 1803, was educated under the tutelage of the Rev. Whitteley of Washington, New York, and under other tutors. The following excerpt from the family record briefly tells the story of the share Moses Austin had in paving the way for the colonizing of Tex^s: ' "April 20, J.816, Moses Austin and family rempyed. from Mine a Burton and ga^e .\ip Durham, Hall ne- groes and plantation together with lead mines and furnaces to his son, Stephen. F, Austin, In 1818 James Elijah Brown, son of Moses Austin returned from Connecticut, remained at home until June, 1819, when ie went to Kentucky near Nicholas Ville to finish his education imSfff a Mr. Wilson. "In 1819 Stephen p. Austin left he Territory of Missouri an'd W' ,o reside in the Territory of Ar- rtansas, Red River at Long Branch. VIoses Austin left Missouri about he first of May, 1820, and went to the Little Rock in the Territory of Arkansas, where he remained some noiiths after which he proceeded <m to San Antonio where he arrived 1 . (after a journey through a perfect wilderness and attended' with much fatigue) about the tenth of December, same year, here there pev titioned the supreme authorities of New Spain, through his Excellency Don Antonio Martinez (then goyerr nor and political chief of this province of Texas) for a grant of land and permission to settle 300 Am'eri- can families in that province. The petition was forwarded on to his Excellency Don Aredorido then' governor general of the Internal Eait- ern Provinces of New Spain wljp confirmed the grant after a previous decree of the provincial deputation (then assembled at the City of Monterrey) to that atfect, and;',the necessary papers were forwarded ori to San Antonio immediately.

At this place he was met by his nephew Ellas Bates who had left HeMuJirri, Mo., some time in December in' pursuit of him.
