The three-division track meet is the main show.- There will be tennis and golf but the track meet will draw 611 athletes. There will be 117 in ;»olf and 96 in tennis, half of the latter being girls. Tennis is the only sport in which the girls participle. Sunset of Dallas is a solid favorite to win the Class AA divi- ion, the top prize, in track. Brenham has the same status in Class A where it is defending champion. Class B look like a hefty fight among defending champion Sugar Land, Wink and O'Donnell. Dozen Records May 1'all More than a dozen recp::ds are expected in the three divisions with most of the new standards due to be hung up in Class B where a new sensation among the sprinters, Frank Daugherty of Olton, is likely to set the fastest time for 100 yards of all. He does this in 9.6, one-tenth o£ a second over the all-time overall record :held by Charley Parker of San . ntonio. The overall record that appears certain to be set is in the ISO-yard low hurdles in Class AA where Eddie Southern of Sunset should take about nine-tenths of a second oil the mark established last year at 20.0 in each class. Tennis Champs Return Only two defending champions return in tennis, James Schmidt of Galveston in Class AA boys singles and Pauline Bingarnan of Asherton in Class A-B girls singles. One champion in golf returns. He is Richard Parvino ol Pine Tree who won the Class B singles title last year. Two teams that won championship also will be back Lamar of Houston in Class AA and Pine Tree in Class ACCORDING TO MANAGER DUROCHER: NothingWrong With Giants That Few Base Hits Won't Clear Up NEW YORK, May 2-UF- There's nothing wrong with the Giants, according to Manager Leo Durocher, that a few clean base hits won't clear up. That's been the story behind the story of the Giants' slump—so show a combined mark of .231 for the season. The collective batting slump is all the more aggravating to Durocher because it has happened at the Polo Grounds — long famous as a hitter's heaven. Durocher has managed to keep reminiscent of the 1951 debacle in hii famous temper throughout the ! which they lost 11 straight.

Bobby Thomson and Monte Irvin, the celebrated 1-2 punch of 11951, shoulder the greatest share 'of the blame because so much is : expected of them. Thomson has not been too bad—he has hit four homers and won two games despite a ,269 average—but Irvin has collected only 12 hits in 59 tries for a pathetic. .202 mark, Williams Hitting Over .300 itors must be shown why they can't receive the same kind of managing for $25,000.

Heading the list of stars is the speedy sprinter from Olton, J. Frank Daugherty. The senior has set a record in the 100 yard dash JP every meet he has entered this year and has already been picked by the writers over the state to break the state record. Favored In 220 Daugherty is also favored to win the 220 yard dash and the Olton 440 yard relay team of Archie Souter, Bryant, Walden and R. V. Allcorn should place high in that event. The Lubbock Westerners qualified five men for the meet. They are Jerry Davis in the pole vault, Robert Webb in the shot put, J. W. Hutcherson in the high jump, Bill dark in the 880 and Troy Harber in the 220.

Davis tied with Don Trickey of Amarillo for first place, both clearing 11 feet 6. However, Abl- j lene qualified two men that jumped over 12 feet.

The Steeds have the best mark in the 440 relay by .01 in the state and that —should they win the event—is worth 16 points. Other Mustangs going are Dave Powell and David Brooks in the pole vault, John Dale Curtis in the dashes. Brooks will probably enter the broad jump and the low hurdles while Phillip Shook, one of the members of the relay team may run the 100.

Took Title With Ease O'Donnell wrapped up the Class B title with ease in the regional meet but did not qualify a relay team.

When It comes on gradually there are symptoms such as headache, dizzyness, pains in the head, and numbness or tingling arms, hands, or feet. Following this there may be vomiting and paralysis on one side, which is usually the right side. However, there are many cases where the left side is totally paralyzed Most cases, however, occur suddenly, when the blood is suddenly effusedfinto the substance of the brain. It may begin with a sudden pain in the head, and the person afflicted will fall into a state of apoplectic coma or paralytic stroke. In a few cases the coma may be attended with convulsions, but usually they are absent. The breathing is slow, noisy, and irregular. The pulse is full and slow, and the cheeks, puff out with expiration or exhaling the air out of the lungs. The pupils in the eyes are unequally enlarged, and one side of the body is paralyzed. The paralysis is on the side opposite to fee side of the hemorrhage which is in the brain, except of the face, which may be paralyzed on the side of the hemorrhage. The head and eyes may dlaviate towards the side of the hemorrhage in the brain. The parlysis of the face may be determined by smoothing out the wrinkles .of the face, and it will be noticed that one side returns to its normal shape more rapidly than the other, and by raising the leg or arm and permitting them to drop it will be seen that the paralyzed extremity drops as if dead. There a usually a slight fever of 100 or 101 degrees, the paralyzed side being one or two degrees wanner than the unaffected side. In severe cases the temperature may suddenly rise to 106 degrees, and death soon follows. The majority of cases are not fatal; in those that recover the coma disappears in from five hours to five or six days, after which there is great weakness, mental confusion disturbances of speech and paralysis.
