Phone 47 Pampa, Teiaa By HAROLD V. Associated Press Sprirts Editor There was little argutnent over the 1946 all-Southwest Conference basketball team. Races for the five positions were not even close. Five schools — £ayior, Arkansas, Texas A. and M., Tfexas Christian and Texas—placed players and three of them, Jamie.Dawson of the Ag- gies, Leroy Pasco of T. C. U. and Jackie Robinson of Baylor, were unanimous choices. The seven coaches—Jack Gray of Texas, Hub McQuillan of Texas Christian, Marty Karow of Texas A. and M., Buster Brannon of Rice, Whitey Baccus of Southern Methodist, Gene Lambert of Arkansas aftd Bill Henderson of Baylor—participated in the poll. So did James H. Stewart, executive secretary of the conference to saw each team in action several times. George Kok of Arkansas got all except two votes. Al Madsen of Texas got half of them. Here is the team: Kok, Arkansas, forward, 6-10. Robinson, Baylor, forward, 5-11. Dawson A. and M., center, 6-7. Pasco, TCU, guard, 5-9. Madsen, Texas, guard, 5-10. Dawson and Kok both are centers but the former got more tallots for the pivot post than forward. Kok registered the same at each position. Robinson is a guard but he received more ballots for forward. # The team averages a little better than 6-feet-2—one of the smallest quintets ever selected. Landing on the second team were: Bryan Lloyd, Southern Methodist and Roy Cox, Texas forwards; Bill Johnson, Baylor, cenfer; Bill Flynt, Arkansas, and Rice, guards. Harmon Walters, Lloyd and Flynt eacli received two first team votes while .Walters and Johnson each got one. The first team features offense. Kok was the loading scorer, Madsen ranked second, Dawson . third and Pasco and Robinson fifth and sixth respectively. The second team also had its hotshots in Lloyd, fourth top scorer in the conference; Cox who was seventh; Walters, ninth, and Flynt, tenth. TODAY & SAT'DAYi PARAMOUNT NEWS TODAY &SATURDAYi . . .

BEftvOtl, Jf'la., U'eb 22.—UP)—Jack Wallaesa, Philadelphia Athletics rookie shortstop, is taking up where he left off before he entered service in 1942.

Mose's St. Gary's teams really vere something to behold as they cured this broad land from coast o coast and the gulf to the border, and what they lacked in talent, they more than made .up for in color, and we" do mean co!6r. As we recall the boys wer^ decked iut in the modest red, White and. ilue uniforms, which could only be een six miles, on a cloudy day. They traveled in a special bus of imilar hues,' thus eliminating thd lecnsslty of a,;liprn. Came late.-lhvSeptember the atii- etes would - ; pile aboard this animated candy cane, and take off for mexploded lands. They took with hem an ih4t?fl'ctor or two and books, or a book, so never let it be said theiv search for tighter learn- ng was temporarily abandoned. We aren't suye just how many ;ames they'd play a season, or how 'ar in advance the schedule was made out. Maybe if the bus driver, one of the players, took a wrong urn along the way it meant a quick shift in plans. Anyway, this traveling ilrcus carried the fame of St. Mary's far and wide, and people who had never heard ot the school not only became aware of it. They couldn't escape it if they were within 10 miles of the one-bus caravan. Mose Simms was the guiding genius behind" all this, and in transferring his allegiance to Oklahoma City "U. he is taking up right where he left off, which seems to be on page FORT LAUDEBDALE, Fla., Feb 22.—(#•)—Manager Billy Southwortl of the Boston Braves will have a look at six more of his pitchers under fire today in second intrnsqvcu game, Mort Cooper will work three innings.
