Hemric, out Qf action for a week with an injured foot, returned Tuesday night to score 34 points and lead.Wak e Forest to a 96' to 89 upset of Duke. Duke had gone into the game, tied with idle North Carolina for the ACC lead with.a 3-0 league record. Texas,'which had been tied with Idle Southern Methodist for the top ! spot in the Southwest Conference, took over sole possession of the lead by edging Texas A&M 49 to 46 on the Aggies' court. That victory set Texas' record at 3-0 in conference play. Rice, the pre-season title favorite in -the Southwest loop moved its record to 2-1 with a 69 to 52 rout o,f Texas Christian at Houston. Gene Schwinger, star Rice center, topped all scorers with 17 points and thus ran his seasonal 322, tops for all.players in hi s loop. George Washington,. the nation's top scoring team, saw its point outtut fall off but preserved its perfect -record in the Southern Conference with a 66 to 50 victory over Virginia Military. Tuesday night's top games saw the Oklahoma' Aggies, ranked fourth nationally, whip thp seventh- ranked Kansas Jayhawks, 54 to 50, at Stillwater, Okla. It was .the 10th straight victory for the Aggies, who have lost only to Minnesota in 15 starts, and it -was' the third loss ,Cor Kansas in nine games. Frank Bigham led the Aggies with 15 points, but the key of the game was perhaps at center where Ag- g'e star Bcb Matlick oulscored Kansas B. H. Born, 14-7. Unbeaten Holy Cross, the nation's fifth-ranked team, ran its record to 11-0 with an 83 to 57 victory over Boston College as All- America candidate Togo Balazzi' scored 25 points, and 13th-ranked La Salle had to fight from behind to beat Manhattan 69 to 61 because the Jaspers held La Salle ace Tom Gala to 12 points. Sixth-ranked Western Kentucky, with a perfect 14-0 record matched only by.'.Duqiiesne among major colleges, fshoots'for No. 15 Wednesday night against dangerous Dayton, while 18th-ranked Oklahoma City faces Houston. In other games, Niagara tuned up for its Saturday clash with Duquesne by trouncing the University o fMexico 77 to 41. and Wyoming trounced Colorado State 72 to 53. Bayou Football Shows Cash Profit Cedar Bayou football showed 1 a cash profit during the 1953 season. A financial report submitted to the board of trustees revealed that a profit of SS,-184.51 was realized, not counting cost of coaches' salaries, nor the expense of operating' a school bus to transport the football team for scheduled games. The report dicf take into account the expense of a chartered bus to take the team to its state playoff games. Cedar Bayou advanced to the quarter-finals last season in A football. Total income for football activities of the A. B and junior high teams amounted to $12.227.99. Operating expenses totaled $4,317.48. The profit wa_s iJi" greatest ever reported for a Cedar Bayou football season, despite the fact that one less game was played in 1953 than in 1952. A large amount of the increase was due to heavy game receipts from the La Porte i and La Mn-que games. Supt. R. W. Akridge credited the new Bay town-La Porte, tunnel with much of the increase, The profit did not include the equipment Investments. Sports Parade NEW YORK, Jan. 13—UP—When Ezzard Charles and Bob Satterfield go at it in Chicago Wednesday night one of the most interested spectators will be heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano. Charles, if he looks good, undoubtedly will get a June shot at the title he once held. And Marciano, despite his calm acceptance of managerial-imposed idleness, is fretting lor activity. 'I don't know what the plans are for my future," Marciano says. "They will be determined by my manager," Thtt is Al Weill, currently receiving- a hospital checkup for what the boxinj mob calls hardening of the purse itrinffs. Al the vest has been very coy about his future plans, however, and is being very careful about cutting loose his title- holding tiger. But those close to Marciano insist that he wants a fight-badly. He doesn't care for. the exhibition treks with which Weill keeps him IOWLINC No. 1 Classic League- team this week was Katribe's, with a total score of 2709. Second-place team was Jax- with 2626 points. Top bowlers were: DeShazo of Huber Operators, 633 points; Kit- chelKof Ketribe's, 607 Points.

And the Brockton block buster feels a great sense of responsibility in the title. Yet Rocky accepts Weill's orders without question. He reminds you erf:. Johnny Greco, after .that Canadian battler had won a couple of good. bout s on his way up the ladder. At that time, Johnny was asked how he would like to • be .the world welterweight champion; "You'll have to ask' my manager," Greco replied. It isn't quite,that bad.with Rocky who-is a sensibly articulate talker. But ,when it comes to managerial maneuvers, Marciano leaves that entirely to Weill. He has '•• no comment about attempts to get him to defend his title 'this.winter in Miami, a bout which - undoubtedly will not come off. Nor can you fault Weill too much for not starting a bum o£. the month club such as Joe Louis ran during his tenure in office. The reason you have to adopt a kindly attitude, toward the apparently reluctant Weill is that there aren't enough bums 'around to last very many months. • Charles, if he shows impressively against Satterfield Wednesday niffht, undoubtedly will ffel.a June shot at Marciano. Ezzard was on hig way to limbo when he knocked over Coley Wallace, who_. played Joe Louis Iti the movies, 'and this one could bring him all the way back. After him you have Nino Valdes, Dan Buccerorii and, possibly, Don Cockell, if the Britisher beats Roland LaStarza in a oroposed March bout in London. Another hopeful coming fast of late with tw 0 wins over Rex Layne is Canadian Earl Walls. Layne is, of course, not too threatening anymore,but Walls was impressive because oif the ease with which he won. Yet, none of them rate as logical contenders in the latest National Boxing Association rankings, with Charles, Valdes, Bucceroni and LaStarza. simply listed as the outstanding challengers. There's quite a difference. Basketball Results — title shot, agreed that the odds favored Charles, but he said he would be "shooting with everything I've got, and thp smart betters will bet that it ends in a knockout" Charles, a Cincinnati ring veteran, rarely has been knocked out or even down, while Satterfield has borne the label of "glasi jaw" since his first year of professional boxing, 1945. Satterfield, though, has an acknowledged power punch to accompany his weak chin and has tallied 25 knockouts in winning 32 and losing 14 pro battles. In Charles, ,he will me«t a foe who features the same kind of two fisted attack, a punching style the ox-champion developed only after h e had lost to both Nino Yaldez and Harold Johnson. His' new method paid off with a 10th round knockout of Coley Wallace in Charles'last start. • Should' Charles finish Satterfield SOUTHWEST Texas 49, Texas A&M 46. Rice 69, Texa s Christian 52.
