IONO AND SHORT OP IT 'Slat 3-4A Play End THE PAMPA DAILY MONDAV PfiSROARVlB, 5 FIGHTERS ARE BUMS, SAYS EXPERT MAX BAER By OSCAR FRALEV United Press International "Max Baer Jr., 6 feet, 8 Inches;Maxie ever drank, soda pop. Pampa Grabs Title; Fight On For Second Basketball aeiuioti ends Thursday for all District 3-4A teams except Pampa.. 'Hia Harve«terfl, who have already clinched the district title, will go into the bi-districl playoff after the end of the regu- ar season, then into the regional alayoff and stale tournament if successful. The final regular season games were scheduled for Thursday instead of Friday, to permit a playoff In case the rare were tied. But such a playoff has proved unnec essary. The main district race still open is for second place. Amartllo an< Plainview are currently knotted for the spot with 8-4 records, bu both must play Pampa this week Border, at 7-5, has only Monterej and Tascosa on its schedule. Palo Duro, Monterey, and Lub bock are the 8-8-7 teams, with one game interval* between each, so any one of those squads could fin ish in any of three spots. Tascosa is assured of the cclla.i spot, but if the Rebels win both their games and Monterey lose! both its contests, Monterey wil share the basement with Tasco sa. Such an occurrence appears unlikely, since Tascosa has won only one district game. Equally unlikely, though possible, Is the prospect of Palo Duro moving into a fourth-place tie with Rice, Texas Are TCtl's Only Obstacles to Title WATER-SKI CHAMP — While the rest of the country shivers in winter weather, national women's water-ski champion Nancie Rideout practices for her next meet in the warm waters off Cypress Gardens, Fla.
