But the Negro organization has operated independently and two years ago changed its name to Prairie Viet Interscholastic League since that college was the actual sponsor. There are 200 schools in the Negro league. Not all of them are considering right now entering the University Interscholastic League and for that reason Pririe View College has announced that it will operate its league so long as Negro schools want to retain membership. Prairie View does not oppose the Negro schools entering the [aterscholastic League, but it does not intend to withdraw its support of those schools that do not want to enter it The Negro schools have good athletic programs and snould add to the strength of the Uni- .ersity Interscholastic League. The University Interschoiastic League never has claimed national supremacy in anything except size—no other state can compare with it in numbers. There have been no claims made that Texas has better football than any other section, but it does compare quite favorably with the others.

According to Rockhold, both been partially coach Kenny Beverly Fenelon - and Dwight Denson will make the trip to Laredo's big annual gathering. Partially answered because both boys will only be seeing limited service and even that will depend on their condition after arriving at the border. Denson has already been replaced in the 440 relay by Lar-, ry Wood but hopefully wiD run, on the aaile relay team. If Rockhold decides to pull Denson outi he will scratch the mile relay and will move BU] Askey over to the 220 yard dash. As of now the mile relay unit consists of Wood. James Williams, Denson, and Askey. Fenelon is scheduled to run on the sprint relay team and has been entered in the 220. If okay. Fenelon should turn in some respectable performances. Denson has not been entered in any of the open events because Rockhold is afraid of put- GANDER JUNIOR HURDLER SILLY LITTLERELD On His Way To Becoming The Best In Gulf Area Golf Tourney Is Opener For Massive Border Meet LAREDO, Tex. (AP) — A golf oumament opened the Border Olympics today, forerunner of a massive track and field meet hat starts Friday and goes trough Saturday night. Sixteen universities and col- eges moved out in a 36-hole round of the annual golf tourna ment which Houston has won s many times it might well hav ie affair named for it. The Cougars will be after their third title in a row and 10th in the ears of the tournament There will be 18 holes Friday and the final 18 Saturday. The high school division, 15 lines strong, swings into action riday and win play 36 holes Corpus Christi Ray is defending tiampion. The track and field meet has drawn 1,002 athletes and ther. re 10 teams in the universitj lass. Rice is the defending hampion, but Abilene Christian s the favorite. Randy Matson, Texas A&M' mighty shot putter, is passing up ie meet but record-smashing i ue in the University class any ••ay, including Tony Pickett o Houston, who has already bet ered the 440-yard hurdles rec rd of 53.6 this season. Eleven teams are in the co: ege class, where Texas South rn is expected to wi n its eighth Texas football might be ap-: straight championship and fur preaching supremacy in quality, Inish record-breakers galore too. John Hartfield leads the Texas Southern charge as he goes for the high jump record of 7 feet % inch. He already has made 7 feet Clyde Glosson of Trinity is another big record potential in the college division where he could trim the 220 record of 21.4 and the overall record of 21_1, which he holds. He also might better the 100-yard mark of 9.4. The junior college division has attracted 14 teams, with Binn expected to defend its championship, but after a hefty fight with Howard County. The high school division has 42 entries headed by defending San had Antonio High- 46 entries but champion lands. It Houston Westbury, Houston Lee. Corpus Christi King and Corpus Christi Carroll withdrew. i There was some rain Wednesday but it is expected to let up by Friday and the weather should be good—cloudy, dry and warm—when the track events start. HAVE YOUR CAR INSPECTED NOW ting too much strain co that questionable leg. Askey. aside from his doubtful standing between the mile relay and the 220 yard dash, has been entered in the open quarter and is also slated to run on the 440 relay team. Premier Gander hurdler Billy Littlefield wffl face his first real test of the young track season as he will the state's both the high and low hurdles in one of the state's top meets. Littlefield has best times of 14.9 in the highs and 19.S in the lows this season, both coming be facing some top competition of in at Lamar's Redskin Relays in the face of a driving rain. The junior also won the lows at the Mustang Relays in 20.5 bucking a 30 m,p.h. wind on that occasion. Down oa the hopefully sonny Rio Grande, Littlefield should be able to easily surpass those marks. Along with Littlefield, Rockhold's chief hopes for some big- points lay in high jumper Jiau- rny Savell. Savell, a juior, tied his career best at last week's Memorial meet with a leap of six feet, two inches for a second place finish which was decided on the basis of fewer misses. Charlie Hendricks is the only Gander weightman that will make the trip. So far this week Hendricks has been consistent at 55 feet in the shot put and about 160 feet in the discus. LittleQeld's running mate in the high hurdles will be Larry Wood with James Williams slated for extra duty in the open 440 aside from his running in the nule relay. "I just hope that it's hot," said Rockhold in his parting remark. The Gander contingent left for L^aredo after school Thursday.
