A Memorial Coliseum crowd of! 62.971, swelterig in summer-lake weather Sunday, watched Unitas nnd Philadelphia's Norm Van Brocklin engaged in a savage quarterback duel in the traditional post-season game of National Football League All Stars.

PAUL (AP) — Manager Cookie Lavagetto, joining a midwinter salute to the arrival of major league baseball time, they turned in a good overall defensive game.

You've Two Loop Games Set For Monday Hall the eight-team 12-4A field gets the third week on loop action underway a day early, giving way to term exams. The other lour teams play as scheduled on Tuesday night. But Brazosport take* its 4-0 league mark to Smiley Monday night and South Houston tries to get back into the win column when toe Trojans host Galena Park. Tuesday sees Ball High at Baytown where the Ganders will be underdogs for the fifth straight time, and Texas City at Pasadena, i Slash Walker's Exporters can look forward to a brief undisputed lead of the 12-4A race, a lead they've had to share with Pasadena so far. But that lead is likely to last only one day, since Pasadena will be favored to knock Texas City into a tie for second place the following night. The important opening clashes of this week's league action both are set only miles apart. Those games will be Monday 1 ! South Houston - Galena Park clash anc Tuesday's Texas Gty • Pasadena scrap. South Houston, though sporting a 1-3 mark, has been dangerously close to the big ones through the first two weeks and faltered badly only against Texas Cry. The Trojans pushed Pasadena and worried Brazosport while being handed losses. If they beat Galena Monday, that would pull them up to a third plac« berth with the Yellow Jackets. Texas City isn't likely to knock off Pasadena, considering the height advantage the Eagles wil take into that game, plus those two important extras: toe scoring anc rebounding leaders of the loop. Consequently, the Stings probably will hang on to th« second place berth they got by beating Baytown last Friday, but theyUl probably have to share it with Ball High. Bill Engle's Tors beat Galena Park into third place in the last three minutes Friday night, and they'll probably take the Ganders when they come to Baytown Tuesday. A win up here would give the Tors a 3-2 record to match Texas City's, providing the Stings lose to Pasadena as they are supposed to do. For a club that has no particular height and no great fund of experience. Ball High has been doing an excellent job of holding its own against the middle-class of 12-4A without giving any great edge to roe favored two. The Tors gave Pasadena trouble and played inspired ball against Brazosport They also knocked off Smiley and Galena Park and they came looking for an easy one Tuesday before tackling annual rival Texas City next Friday. Judging from Baytown's past home appearances, the Tors probably will get an easy one here Tuesday. That is, unless the Ganders buckle down to the kind of basketball they've been playing on the road. It was difficult to find fault with Baytown's performance against Brazosport outside of very few mistakes that you can attribute to inexperience. The Ganders didn't look bad against Galena Park, also played on the road, and could have upset the Y.ellow Jackets with an even break on officiating. But when they came home last Friday, the Ganders barely got their offense past the free throw circle, and when they were within range they could hit only 25 per cent of their shots.

Fullmer owns the National Boxing Association version of the crown. He is scheduled to defend against Sugar Ray Robinson Feb. 25. "I want the winner of the Fullmer-Robinson fight," Pender said just after disposing of game young Terry Downes in seven rounds Saturday night. "I want that one real bad, I want to clear up this mess about the title." Fifteen stitches were required to repair the damage Pender wrought on Downes' face. The fight was stopped with the 24- year-old Londoner bleeding profusely from a long, deep gash I took 12 stitches, and 3 more closed up an eye cut "Sharp, he was," Downes admitted before leaving for Baltimore. Pender was ahead on all cards. He used a picture left to redden Terry's face as early as the first round, threw some surprising right hands and was in complete control of the fight except for the third round when Downes' broke through the stabbing left for a two-handed assault to the body. Pender scored a knockdown with a right hand In the first round and in other rounds abandoned his usual cautious, defensive style to mix it up. Jenson, who said he watched me fight on television, said Fullmer "is and always has been ready to meet Pender. I hope we can Dallas Woman Rolls Record In 12 Games SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.
