Barringer Did Start In REL's Brenham Win Sun sources In Brecham erroneously reported that junior Norman Montgomery, w h o got th« Brenham baseball win Thursday night and broke up the game with a. tremendous home run in the top of the last inning, started the game and went the distance. From Austin Friday night Gander baseball Coach Don Treuhardt corrected this by saying t*»»t junior righthander Scott Barringer started the game and pitched four fine innings of baseball. "I started Barringer like I had p 1 a n n e 3," Treuhardt said, and "I was real pleased with his performance. He ga.v* up only two at the three hits a fine Brenham team got-" Barringer failed to get the win because he was taken out of the game when it stood at a 2-2 deadlock IB the fourth inning. Instead reliefer Montgomery got the win via his own two-run 370-foot homer over the Scoreboard, lifting his record to 1-0 from the mound. With a 2-2 win over Austin McCallum Friday night in the Austin Tournament the Oan- ders raised their record to 1-2 for the voung season.

(AP> — The ma n who directed the United I States' military draft thinks • that Oissius (Muhammed Ali) Clay, the world's heavyweight boxing champion, would make a good soldier. Lt. Oen. Lewis B.

Hershey came here on the i nvitation of an Army friend, Lt. Col. MacArthur H Manchester, now retired. Clay, who recently was reclassified 1-A after he earlier had s cored low on an intelligence test, "has one of the qualities necessary" to be a gocx! soldiei-, Hershey said. "He's a fighter." Referring to Clay's score on an armed forces qualification tost, Hershey said, "Those who score good (on the test) are not necessarily good soldiers.''
