6 —THE BAYTOWN SUN, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 1954 Hard-Luck Ganders Look To Game Chokes Slim Pro Football Coach Cries DETHOIT. Jan. 20 —UP—Russ Thomas, assistant coach of the champion Detroit Lions, predicted Wednesday "pickings will be slim" in the National Football League player draft next week because of the" return of the one-platoon system in college football. "There iust aren't as many good players around this year," Thomas lamented. "Some of the boys who •would have been defensive siano- outs couldn't make the grade because thev were lacking in offensive abiliU'. And the same was true fw good offensive prospects who were too weak on defense." He said "I've talked with representatives of several other pro team.; and they all agree this will b fi a'lean year in the draft." Thomas has been busy since the end of the football season scanning the long list of draft eligibles for plavers the Lions would like to land at Philadelphia next Wednesday. . , „ "The list isn't too impressive, Thomas said. "W e need a fullback- But there are only three or four who rate much consideration. I'd say Neil Worden of Notre Dame, Bobby Epps of Pittsburgh and Ralph Felton of Maryland would be 'the best prospects. Uusually, there are two or three times that many promising fullbacks."

Lee a ball game here Tuesday night as the Port Arthur Yel- lowjnckets nipped the Ganders, 4139. in a District 8-AAAA contest. Keiton Ferguson, Jacket forward, sank two 'roe throws that put an end to a game that went right down to the finish, with the lead changing hands several times. Port Arthur led 39-35 with three minutes left in the game but Cameron Gates scored a bucket for the Ganders to narrow the margin. The Yellow-jackets' Fred Varnj was called on walking and with less than two minutes left. W.

Lee had the ball- Ferguson calmly sank Both free throws that put the game on ice, With seconds left in the gair.?. Lee took the ball but couid so: score. The Ganders jumped to an early S-3 lead but Port Arthur, mainly on the strength of free throws, fought back to tie the game at 15-15 midway of the second period. With 30. second left in the half and with Port Arthur, ahead 19-18, Tommy Parris missed a crip shot for the Ganders, and then Varni hit a long shot for the Jackets that gave PA a 21-18 half time lead. .

This nifty job has two double staterooms with private baths and plenty of space to put up Army cots for transient .guests.: The cost is'a mere 890,000, and I think the Internal Revenue Bureau ought to know that a gent named, Walton Lynch from Hamden, Conn, bought one. . "It isn't the .original cost which •is so bad," complained -one prospective customer, "it's ke eping your guests in whiskey . which hurts." . .-. • If that is a little steep for- your taste, you can drop down to the Wheeler. This is a cruiser which somehow sleeps 10, .although it is only 50 feet long, and costs a mere S82.50I.

Flowers,- the Colts' No. ;2 draft choice in 1953 plaj'ed with the Ottawa 'Roufihriders, but after conferring with Baltimore President Don Kellett, has decided to fore• sake Canadian football. Kellett spent Tuesday trying .to sign Billy Vessels, who played -with Edmonton in the Canadian League last year. . , For Bowlers: The Big Chicago Match Ready ,.'''• , *^^ ' ' . - ' f' CHICAGO, Jan, 20 —UP—Detroit's Don Carter, whose, accuracy improves every year, was "very confident" Wednesday, that he could capture for the second straight time the title he declared was bowling's biggest, the national match gam e championship. "I wasn't bowling very well last year when the tournament started," he said., "and, that I got better and won. ; Well, this year I was bowling well when I went in, and I think I slipped a little bit, but I got it back." Currently Carter, a 27-year-old blonde, was bowling a match game, exhibition series with Junie McMahon. But starting Thursday, both' he and MeMahon will move into' head to head combat with the 14 highest scorers after 36 games of pin eliminations. . ..Sunday night the bowler .with' the best record of frames won and lost and pins knocked down will win the 13th annual match game title. "I think my timing is good how," he -said, "and that's the most important part of bowling. The sport is more physical than mental. Once you've got your form and timing, then if something goes wrong, you've got to get back to the form and timing that work for. you. "Form is an .individual thing. And every bowler should find his own form, the on e that lets' him score best, and keep it. It's different for everybody." Carter didn't believe there was too much strategy to the game. "You have to,develop your accuracy," he ' said; "and then try to deliver the ball the same way physically every time.. "But competition helps. you. If you bowl in a-..tougher league, then your scores should 'get better. I bowled a 188 average one season and then;I bowled in the classic league, a 200. average league, the next year and I jumped to 200." Carter, who has been bowling for five years in the "scratch leagues" and who bowled for recreation for nine years earlier, said that he moved from his native St. Louis to' Detroit because of "better bowling and better competition." ' "I don't have any particular way to get ready for a big match," he saiu. . ' •• . "Except that I don't like to travel,-so I try to get to the place of th e match -early for a rest. Then regular hours and a ffood diet."
