C°llin* C ol *tte> By DICK COLLINS Peunpa M«wi Sport* stditor THERE MAS BEEN SOME DISCUSSION the few days about San Ang«lo and Midland moving from the Southwestern League to the Big State League, a move which would no doubt help the latter circuit. Both leagues are of B classification. The South western League, of which Pampa is a member, now has 10 members and it is reported that all of them may be ready to go next season, The Big State League, on* , of the oldest circuits in Texas, now has six members.

Sayles went on to say that the possibility had only been discussed very informally. He also itated that the Big State wai not trying ^ to raid the Southwestern League or any other league. He did discus* the possibility of a re-alignment in order to give each league the tame number of teams.' . Chances are that it will work out the same way with San Angelo and Midland going ov«r to the Big State. But It will have to have the okay of the Southwestern loop be< fore anything "can be done.

The 22- year-old Glammalva of Hoston, Tex., playing in a Davis Cup chal- enge round for the ftrat time, played his best game ever but the 33-year-old Sexia* of Philadelphia was obviously off form. Rosewall, too, was sub-par but after the first set, that didn't matter because Hoad was at his brilliant b*»t — booming over a cannonball service the Yanks couldn't handle, hitting pinpoint placements,- and making "impossible" save*.

The Aussies whizzed through the second set on a six-game and then came to the verge of victory by breaking Seixas' service in the ninth game of the fourth set when Vic netted two lobs.

Biammalva saved the first point on a brilliant save, but the Aussies and it wag staved off disaster for a second by taking the next point on a brilliant back hand, but then Rosewall clipped a return past the two Yanks and tha cup belonged to Australia for the sixth time in the last seven years . took th* next three match point.

The tournament Missouri Nebraska Fraley Picks Bowl Winners For Jan. 1 By OSCAR FRALEY United Pre»« Sports Writer NEW YORK (UP)—Fraley's final follies of 1956 to give you the football bowl "winners"—and I never thought you'd have enough money to last out the year. Rose Bowl Iowa over Oregon State—Here a guy could get highly technical about multiple fractured offenses and compound felonious defenses. That way, everybody would get mad at everybody else, nobody would understand what 'anybody else was talking about and they'd still have 'the Rose Bowl parade anyhow. To sum it up, — just happen to like Iowa. Cotton Bowl Syracuse over TCU—This is a case of when an orange is not an orange and will it pack more safely in cotton. Syracuse, for some daffy reason nicknamed the "Orange," was squashed thoroughly in the 1953 Orange Bowl. But exhaustive research has shown that Horned Frogs (TCU, yuk-yuk) do not thrive on orange peels like Florida cattle. Now can you give me a better reason for picking Syracuse? Sugar Bowl Tennessee over Baylor—Mother always kept her mad money .in the sugar bowl, but that ain't the reason. Remember Davey Crockett was a volunteer. And remember what old Davey did to that thar b'ar in Tennessee. Let 'em carry Bowie knives in the second half and I don't see how Tennessee can lose. Orange Bowl Clemson over Colorado. The Buffaloes picked up a lot of support when they did just that to mighty Oklahoma for the first half.

SMU was tournament victor -in 1952, 1954 and 1955. Rice, in its last four games; beat Oregon and Oregon State but lost to Stanford and Oklahoma.

Expected to Beat Baylor ••" Rice was expected to dispose -af low-rated Baylor (2-6) in the final game at 9 o'clock tonight. Today's 7:30 p.m. game pitted guest team Navy, with a 5-1 pre-season record, against Texas A&M (3-6). All seven SWC teams, plus Navy, play a game a day in three days and nights of competition, affording fans the opportunity to size up the impending SWC double round robin title race. Rice, which won the tournament in 1953, sports the tallest rebound pair in the tournament in six-foot, 10-inch Temple Tucker, a junior standout, and six-foot, nine Tommy Robitaille, an ace at board fighting. Rice has averaged only 69.1 points per game but has held opponents to 65.3. High Scoring Average SMU sports an 87.8 scoring average and a 65.9 defensive record, with veteran big Jim . Krebs taking the best individual sccriiig mark—24.5—into the tourney.
