Texas Meets Bitter Rival By DNITED PRESS Texas gets a chance to move ahead in the Southwest Conference basketball race Tuesday night, while Texas Christian has a make or break game with Rice. The Texas Longborns, tied with Southern Methodist with two loop wins each, play their bitter rival, Texas A&M. at College Station. The Aggies haven't won in two starts. "At Houston, TCU gets a chance to live up to its pre-season billing as a favorite for the loop title as the Frogs meet Rice, which won the pre-title v tournament but lost to SMU in its opener. Th e loser will be down two games and probably will be out of contention.- Baylor won Monday night's only game, with a 63 to 59 decision over Arkansas. Final UP Grid Vote The Baylor - Arkansas tilt at Waco was a rough one, with greater accuracy and more chances at the free throw line paying off for the Bears. They, hit 33 of 47 chances, while Arkansas got only 32 and converted a slim 19- Murray Bailey paced the scoring with 22 points, including a pair •of important free throws in the last 10 seconds. The Razorback attack was led by Buddy Smith and Gerald Barnett, each of ,whom scored, nine 1 points. They were particularly effective in the second quarter,' when Arkansas scored 25 points to pull into a 35 to 32 halftime lead. Baylor took over again in the third quarter, • though, ,and managed to hold a narrow lead the rest of the way. Sports Parade NATIONAL collegiate all-around champion..

ROCHESTER, N. Y.. ; Jan. 12— UP—Big Joe Black, the baseball hero of '52 and the bust of '53, looked' forward: eagerly to : '54 Tuesday because Chuck Drcssen will not be the manager of the Brook lyn Dodgers. "It - wasn't the sophomore jinx which ruined me last season," ^Black. said. bitterly, "It was Dressen." And all because of a fellow named George, Joe was just .one of those present at .the Hickok Award dinner at. which Ben Hogan was named professional .athlete of the year. There was no fuss made over him.'as he had his due one year ago when he came out of nowhere to pitch the Dodgers to the .National League pennant and within an out of beating the Yankees for the world championship; Here was a tight-lipped man who knew that he was on trial. But there was no doubt from big: Joe's attitude that once again he would make the yrade in championship style. "I was the No. 1 experiment of the Dodgers last season," he charged. "And all because I threw a home_ run-ball to .that guy Met- kovich in a ball game which meant nothing-. The Dodgers had cinched the pennant in 1952, Joe recalled, and. as a warmiip for the series,. Dressen put him in against the Pirates in a relief chore. It was the seventh inning with the Dodgers leading 7 to 2. Black threw a curve ball that was just a bit too fat and Metkp- vich hit it out of the park. That blow meant little at the time. But during the off season. Dressen and Metkovich met. in their native California and the Pi rate player assertedly told Dressen: , "You'll have to change Black's deliver. He's easy to 'read.'," "That apparently did it," Blnck muses. "When I reported for spring training at Vero Beach I became that No. 1 experiment. Dressen told me. in effect, that By Oscar Fraley I would have to come. up with some new pitches. He assigned one guy to teach m e the fork ball: another to teach me the screwball, and still another to show • me a knuckle ball. , "I experimented — and completely lost my control. I couldn't get anyone out My teammates... all told me I simply wasn't throwing like I did in my successful freshman season. So, although Dressen was not speaking to me at that f ime I decided to So back to the pitches; I got them out with in 1952. But I had such little chance to - pitch, that when he did put me in-—when the games were lost — I iust did not have any control. .The"experimenting had ruined me." When he reports this spring; big. Joe is going to fog them through the way he did when he was a first year wonder. "I'm gonna just throw that ball the way that conies naturally," he says. And from the way Black said it. it could well be that he" will go all the way to the: top' 1 again. Davis Cup Star To Play La Borde Tut Dartzen of the U.S.. Davis.
