PAGE 10 — THE BAYTOWN SUN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 1954 Rice, Texas In Important SWC Basketball Battle Rice Win Will Give SMU Cage Leadership By UNITED PRESS Texas meets Rice Friday night in an important early season Southwest Conference basketball game, and Texas Christian takes on Texas A&M in a game that will boost the winner out of the loop cellar. The Texas - Rice clash at Austin could clear or muddy the question of league leadership, with games at Fayetteville Saturday and Monday night falling into that category also. Should Texas win, it will have a record of four conference victories in as many starts, and Rice will have a 2-2 mark. But a Rice triumph would send'Sou th e r n Methodist into the lead, with its 2-0 slate, and deadlock Rice and Texas in second-place. SMU. goes .to Fayetteville 10 meet Arkansas, a two-game.loser, tomorrow night, and Rice is tilt- Razorbacks' Monday night foe. A pair of Hog wins, not unlikely .smce they are always dangerous at home no matter how they've fared oa the road, would turn the race_ KAHN TAILORING CO.

Texas will have a home court advantage in its effort to avenge the 65 to 38 defeat which Rice hung on the Longhorns in the pre-seaion tourney at Houston. But Rice's star. Gene Schwinger, appears to be getting hotter as the season progresses and if he &ets enough support from his mates, playing in Gregory Gym shouldn't handicap him. 1 There appeared to be little to choose between TCU and Texas A&M on the basis of recent games against the same loop foes.

Players Want Nebraska U Coach Resign LINCOLN. Neb., Jan. 15 —UP— The coaching career of Bill Glassford neared an end at Nebraska Friday after 35 players demanded his resignation because, he nad created what the players called "an element of fear." The statement, made because "we want the public to know the element of our fear," came in the wake of mounting reports that the Nebraska grid post had been offered to former Husker star George Sauer. Sports Editor Floyd Olds said in a copyrighted story in the Omaha •world herald that Sauer, now the coach at Baylor was being considered for the job of football coac'i and athletic director at his alma mater.. -. '.. •. • .. •Olds said the move to return Sauer to Lincoln was being stymied, .by the refusal of Glassford to resign. . : ., : ' At a banquet in ; Lincoln Wednesday night. Glassford said he still is the football coach; : . In Olds, story, the . sports editor said school officials were ready to "railroad Glassford quickly and immediately name' Sauer as combination coach and athletic director." Glassford's refusal to submit to ouster demands halted the Plan at least temporarily. Olds said. At Waco, however. Sauer denied he had been offered th° job and said "I don't know where Olds got .his story." Sauer has severi years to go on an estimated 512,000 yearlv ; contract at Baylor. Sauer said he did not know whether he would be interested in the Nebraska job. The statement made by the slayers said the fear element they felt was "of doing or saying something wrong and that the reprisals would be ridicule, embarrassment, plus the threat of losing a scholarship and never being able to play football again." .

Writer Lauds 'O/e Hound' As Number-One Duckdog By J. FRED EDER United Press Outdoor Consultant Practically every nimrod/who is a devotee of the scattergun has owned' dogs of such breeds as hounds, retrivers, .. Labradors pointers, setters and Spaniels and no dog owner would be human if he didn't take one or more exceptional hunting dogs during his career to brag about whenever a listener is available. . I belon* in that category and it always gives me a lot pleasure to .tell about not only my own dogs but those belonging to friends as well over whom I have had the fortune and. pleasure to hunt. I'll never forget a duck hunting companion I «nce had in a dog that was almost human . . . Her name was Gypsy and she has long since passed on to the happy hunting' grounds. She was a Springer Spaniel by breed and a natural born duck hunter that loved a duck hunt better than red raw hamburger meat. The weather and water was never too cold for Gypsy to re- trivc and she would sit in a duck- blind for hours scanning the sky for ducks. . .She could spot a flying duck better than I and would always let me know by a low shim- per that there were ducks in the air. She would never give up on a cripple and I have seen her many times follow the dive of a desper-. ate cripple emerging perhaps 10 or 20 yards- from the spot the two went down together. In the early 2 8 Tot. 135 138 438 96 141 354 177 134 438 133 141 450 152 189 MO 40 40 107 733 783 2307 ...points 0 .. .points 4 2 3 Tot. 173 140 469 148 150 409 138 114 390 162 153 470 176 212 544 800 769 2282 2 3 Tot. 156 152 413 115 138 370 140 115 420 155 132 437 172 144 498 50 50 150 7SS 731 2288 2 3 Tot. 196 167 579 141 156 413 153 169 475 180 174 499 153 353 459 823 819 2425 2 3 Tot. 105 142 334 160 124 424 144 129 397 169 134 443 108 151 407 74 74 222 760 754 2277 days of our association and before I first became acquainted with all her .tricks I thought a number of times she had drowned herself diving after a cripple and lust about when 1 I was ready to give up here she would'surface, with the duck in her mouth. Gypsy knew she was good and after a spcial retrive such as that, she would always take time out tc prance and expect a few kind soft- spoken worfl s and sentlp stroke;; on her proud head. On a cold winter night with a. howling wind and a fresh norther blowing in she knew and sensed the thrill of a coming hunt. It was on just such a night that Gypsy gave me one of my greatest sur' prises. Lying before the fire and whimpering along with a fresh .norther that was blowing in I couldn't help but notice her tense attitude, constantly wait'-- me, as if to say, "please lets go to the lake." I have been watching her for some time over the corner of a book and finally I spoke softly, "how about it Gypsy, do you want to so hunting?" With great excitement she rose from the floor and made a beeline for the closet in which I kept my hunting clothes. The door was opened and my hunting cap was hanging just low enough for her tr reach it. As she came back to the living room with my cap in her mouth and in her proudest walk she made a picture .that will iive in memory forever. Duke Snider Signs For Big Pay Increase By UNITED PRESS Duke Snider, the Brooklyn Dodgers' star southpaw slugger, signed the fattest contract of his life • Friday with, the fervent wish that'he'll get "another chance to beat those Yankees."

' .'••' Slugger Ralph Kiner of the Chicago Cubs ••also has agreed to terms, but the ex-homer champion reportedly took; a cut from his- 580,000 contract' of last season. Kiner. who batted .279 and-hit; 35 homers last year, wired the Cubs "he was "satisfied" with the salary terms. Kiner's quick agreement was in marked' contrast to his holdout last spring, while he balked for weeks at terms offered by the Pittsourgh Pirates. He was traded from the Pirates to the Cubs last June. It was reported that three more members of the world champion Yankees — Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, and Gil McDougald—n«ve turned down the first salary figures offered to them. Pitcher Whitey Ford- previously indicated his disagreement.

Both are officials of the players' league.
