Canyon failed to get a single crip shflt until «nc minute Mad passed In the second half, ^when Taylor banked one through the hoop. Cdptain J. K.

The Harvesters controlled the tip during the entire game, although • Coach Jones sent Fulton, 6 feet 5 inches, into the game in the second ~—-Ihalf. The Harvesters exhibited several new plays which worked :nicely. Scott showed much improvement, not once throwing the ball away. Herring went to forward late in •the game and got a pretty field goal on his first attempt. Usually a guard, he showed up well at 'the forward position. Hassell also showed flashes of his old speed! i while on the floor. J. H. Duncan of LeFors called one of the best games on the local floor this season. Preceding the game, the Harvester Pee-Wees, coached by Harry Kelley, nosed out the Harvester- ettes of Coach Kathleen Milam by a score of 19 to 18.

(NEWS Staff Photo and Engraving) DALLAS GOLF STARS TO BIG mm Houston Invitation Meet Is To Open Tomorrow as Year's Biggest Card. DALLAS, Feb. 16. (ff>)— Practically every outstanding Dallas amateur golfer left today or will leave tomorrow for Houston to play in the annual Houston country club invitation which starts Tuesday. It is the concensus of players and tournament officials that next week's invitation will be this biggest Texas tournament this year. O'Hara Watts, former No. 1 player on the Southern Methodist university team and who twice won the southwest .conference crown, left yesterday. Watts is playing fine golf and is confident of making an excellent showing. Rube Albaugh, former Rice Institute star, left late today in company with Babe Pouts, Albaugh is a leader among Texas' longest tee shot hitters. He breezed the Dallas Country club course in 76 as a warm-up for the Houston event. FoUts is a promising young player who made a commendable showing in last year tournaments. Harry Todd, western junior open champion, and Don Schumacher, Texas junior champion, left today. Both have been clicking in the low seventies and promise to be difficult to beat. Todd shot a 69 Thursday with the handicap of a glaring 7 on the final hole. Gus Moreland, United States Walker cup star and current champion of old Mexico was due at Houston today. Moreland left here several days ago for Marlin to rest a few days before facing tournament opponents. ' Much interest will center around Moreland and his effort to win the invitation for the fourthj time. After winning it three straight years, he lost the 1934 title to Johnny Dawson of Chicago, 5 and 3. Reynolds Smith, Texas amateur champion and sensation of last year's national amateur, and Louis Nowlin, medalist in last year's Texas Golf association championship, will leave tomorrow. They plan to play a practice round Monday. Smith is sure to draw a large gallery in each round. He was the sensation of last year's national amateur where he established a world's record in golf by winning five extra hole matches before being eliminated in the semi-finals by his room-mate, David Goldman. David Goldman, finalist in last year's national and western amateur tournaments, is the only local star who does not plan to play at Houston. Goldman is doing lathe work on a construction job here and said it was doubtful if he could get time off to play at Houston. member of the Oklahoma A. & M. freshmen team.

W)—Gloom settled heavily on the shiny sands of Daytona Beach today. Conditions never appeared worse for Sir Malcolm CampbeWs speed ventures, and the possibility loomed that 10 days may pass before Bluebird can charge down on her own record of 272.108 miles an hour. The beach was rougher than at any time since the impatient, restless Englishman came here two weeks ago with his entirely rebuilt Blue Streak, hoping this time to life automobile speeds to the breathless point of 300 miles an hour, five miles a minute. Rain drummed down on- the beach most of last night, the wind was from the west and south, and there were gullies and trenches all down the length of the implacable 11* mile racing stretch. The 50- year-old Briton was completely sunk. "I've never seen it quite so bad," he said. "The beach is miserablei simply miserable. At this rate there's no telling when we can try for the record. I'm disconsolate." He looked it. Several of the hburs he spent with his mechanics in the garage, trying to find something to do for Bluebird, the handsome, seven-ton monster that.needs only proper conditions to test the ultimate in speed design and construction. There was nothing to do. Bluebird glistened inside and out. her 2,500 horsepower plant roars hungrily for a beach to run on. The readjustments necessary after the initial test drive Thursday have all been inade. Whitney Horse Wins at Derby LOS ANGELES, Feb. 16. ,..,-Out of dust in a wild stretch dash came Gillie today to win the first running of the Santa Anita derby and $19,650 first place money for Mi's. Payne Whitney's Greentree stable. The time was 1 minute 443-5 seconds for the mile and a sixteenth. Whiskolo of the Milky Way farm was second, a length ,and a half behindj, and demonstration was third, another length and a half in the ruck. Zimmerman Has Lead in, Phoenix PHOENIX, Ariz., Feb. 16. Zimmerman, Portland, Ore., professional added a par 71 today to his sub-par round of 70 yesterday to take .an early 'lead with a total of 141 at the hajf way mark Jn thje 72-hole $2,500 Phoenix open golf tournament.

R.tlreen Scores 2fr Points And Stoke* Is Ne*t With 11; Harvesters Mils Many The iPewees Would have given them a touffh battle, the Gorillas ceula have beaten them, thd St*- ona string dht teat them tetdly/ and naturally the Harv&ters smothered the Hedley, Owls 60-11 here 'Friday night. Coach Odus Mitchell was under the impression that Hedley had a good team In view of the fact that the Owls played Clarendon three close games, scoring 40'points to'41 for Clarendon, , The Owls were young and inexperienced compared with i the Harvesters. Despite the decisive score, the Pampans were unimpressive in winning. Coach Mitchell was So disappointed in the work of his charges in the first quarter that he 'jerked the entire first string after five minutes and setit in the second string. The Harvesters shot at.the basket about a dozen times'in the first five minutes, but the old hoop seemed to be dodging the ball. Most of those fruitless first attempts Were sure-fire set-ups. The second string's attempts to score were as futile as the first string's had been. The quarter ended five to one for Pampa. The first team went back into the game, at the second period and slowly began to show some semblance of form. Alter the half'the scoring riot began in earnest. J. R. Green was high-point man with 27 tallies, and his brother Stokes was next With 11. The Harvesters took no chances on long shots—4hey didn't need to for it was easy to work the ball into scoring position right under the basket. The trouble was that they couldn't make -their set-ups. The surprising feature of the game was that Mayse Nash who Starred in the scoring on the road trip did not chalk up a single point for; the old home town. He was given; a crip immediately after the game opened arid missed it and he continued to miss them. "Boogee" had a hard night of it. He has been in a definite slump the last two or: three games, and he is expected to come out of it before next week-end when the district tournament will be held. At any rate, Coach Mitchell thinks he will. .Bill A Dunaway who never lets up played ah amazing game at one of the guard positions. In hustling for and in handling the ball, he stood out. Scott also played a good game at guard. After a slump last week, Me made few glaring errors Friday night and handled the ball nicely. He led Dunaway and the other In feeding the ball to J. R. Stokes Green turned in the best piece of work of the • evening in certain phases of the game, notably in defensive tactics under the basket^ The substitutes, who play well if the.first, went into the game again late in the.last quarter and scored 8 points. Junior Strickland, center, used his height to sink two;field goals, and Irving and Hassell got one a-piece. The second string could have easily swamped the Owls last night. The subs played a good game after they went in the second time. The game was not rough, and Referee Monroe made it a fast affair. Summary— Piimpa Fg Ft Pf Tp S, Green f 4 3 0 11 Nash f 0 0 3 0 J..R.
