Big Eight's Top Teams Square Off Big Eight BASKETBALL By JIM VAN VALKENBURG Associated Press Sports Writer The Big Eight's top four basketball teams will have at it tonight. Kansas State, with a poor record in the mountain air of Boulder, plays at Colorado; Oklahoma State faces Missouri' at Columbia, where OSU has never won in five games as a Big Eight member. Surprising Colorado and Oklahoma State are tied for first with 4-1 records, K-State stands 4-2 and Missouri 3-2. Tex Winter, K-Statc coach, has tried various formulas to overcome the altitude factor in Boulder. He had the team arrive early, arrive just before the game; he talked about the altitude and ignored it. None worked. Colorado has beaten the Wildcats four straight years in Boulder. Sox Walseth, Colorado coach, counters the altitude theories with a complaint of his own. "River bottom sickness gets us in Manhattan," he says. The race is so scrambled at this stage that each of the top four, except for Missouri, could be alone at tl)H top after tonight. Missouri could get as high as a second place tie, a half game from the top. Kansas, in. fifth place at 3-4. plays at Iowa State, 2-4, and Oklahoma, 1-6, goes to Nebraska, 2-3, in the other games tonight. Kansas is trying to regroup after losing four players, two of them talented regulars, at the semester break. Iowa State is in the midst of a comeback. Nebraska has dropped three straight in the conference but scared K-State Monday before losing in overtime. Oklahoma has lost six straight league games, but made it close until the fading moments each time. An important factor for Oklahoma State is the condition of Jim King's lame back. King didn't start Monday in OSU's 65-59 upset by Colorado at Still- watr. By the time the talented 6-foot-G pivot got in the game, the Cowboys were far behind. King is a 60 per cent field shooter, a top rebounder and outstanding defensive hand. Without him, OSU will be hurt under the boards. Missouri has George Flamank and Ray Bob Carey and figures to give the Cowboys trouble even if King is in top form. Colorado beat K-State twice last season in getting a co-title with the Wildcats, then ups- them 60-59 at Manhattan in the league opener this season. The Buffs have Jim Davis, the league's No. 1 rebounder, but K-State has Willies Murrell and 7-foot Roger Suttner to offset him. Colorado used deadly outside shooting to sink OSU and K-State. They'll need it again this time. College Scores Junior College Parsons 91, Butler County 73 Coffcyvillc 82, lola 46 Dodge City 80, Arkansas City IftEAIWINNCft!

The last time a hurrlpane threatened Miami, keepers at the Dade County Zoo — located near the beach on an off-shore island — had this to do: Transfer all the snakes and other reptiles from cages to bags. Catch all the water birds — ducks, swans, etc. — and put them in the snake cages. Lug all the mammoth tortoises Into the zoo restrooms. Remove antlers from the deer and crate them. Give tranquilizers to the ostriches so they could be shifted to shelter without danger to the keepers. After all that, the hurricane veered away and the precautions turned out to be unnecessary. —Whether buying or selling, use .'•rram Want Adsl NIW LINCOLN IN-AMP AC WILDIt Now S110.00 WELDERS SUPPLY Phone M A-4141 Miss Adams Talks To Women's Club Mrs. Harold Jones, Pietce- ville, was hostess Wednesday afternoon to members of the Pierceville Woman's Club.
