A C C U PC A T -E 1-fc O MPLCT-E LMb ° C rct Another Draws Bye; Two Are "Eliminated" By COLLIER P ARRIS Avalanche Sports Editor WILL ROGERS COLISEUM, FORT WORTH, Feb. 12. — Six members of the Lubboek District Golden Gloves championship team were here tonight for first round fights in the State tournament — snd victories were marked up for five of them. One team member, Heavyweight Glenn Ward of Floydada, was forbidden by tournament doctors to enter the ring after the very willing district champion fainted in the dressing room an hour before his scheduled fight time. Diagnosis revealed a heavy head cold, bordering on the "flu." Decisions, Kayo Registered The eighth member of the team, J. D. Kirkpatrick, middleweight champ, drew a bye and opens his state campaign Friday night against Frank Evans of San Benito. Winner by a clean, first round knockout, after two decisions had been rendered in favor of Lub- boek, was Roy Belk, welterweight "representative, who slapped down Junior Montague of Wellington, champion of the Childress district, with a short, right hand punch. Previously, Flyweight Roland Borger of Texas Tech had out- pointed Abner Bedingfield, Dallas champion, and Keith Kivlehen of Texas Tech had decisioned Henry Delano, champion from Beaumont, in the featherweight division. . Roach, Bradshaw Fight Tonight LaVern Roach of Plainview, the district bantanvweight, and Bu- fbrd Bradshaw, lightweight champ from Littlefield, advanced to the second round with default victories and fight Friday night. . First and only actual defeat for Lubboek was the decision over % 'Light Heavyweight Rhea Mitchell ^of Texas Tech, by the Fort Worth titlist, Bill Anderson. - Fourth fist lilted in victory as the second night of punching got under way was that of Roland Borger, scion of the family after Whom the township of Borger was 'named. .'.-;;' Roach Advances On Default Borger played a more or less "waiting game, standing off and 'taking long punches at his younger and shorter opponent from .Dallas, keeping his left hand in l-Bedingfield's face when the latter rushed in. Borger made his best showing in the second round, rcoasted to victory in the third . with defensive fighting. There were no knock downs. : . Jack Fraley of Borger, Ama- rLUo's district flyweight cham- 'pion, defeated Louis Allen of Port Arthur in a fight preceding the Texas Tech freshman's victory.

Borger is booked against Jose Andreas, the .Fort Worth slugger who won the flyweight title in 1940. Roach meets a toughy in Jack Slaymaker of Beaumont, who also advanced by default. : Kavlehen made it three in a row for the Lubboek team when he won an unanimous decision over the Beaumont district champion. Henry Delano. The Texas Tech featherweight had his own way, and Delano was clinching and wresting from the start to avoid Keith's jarring right hand. Kivie- hen almost had his man out in the second round with a terrific smash to the face, but Delano came up to continue the fight, in which there was never any doubt as to the superior boxer..

Broad, rolling greens —some of the largest in the Southwest — are at the end of every hole here at Willow Springs' 6,595-yard par 36-35—71 course.

Cooper, Hines "Hoi" Baldish Harry Cooper, the light horse of old, whipped around the soggy course in 31-34—65 in the ' pro-amateur event to signal his ' presence. The Alinneapolis pro, who was disqualified in the Texas open last year for having 15 clubs in his bag, had nothing but smoking shots in the sack today. Teamed with Bert Keller of Seguin, he won the event with a best ball of 64. Jimmy Hines, the Great Neck, Long Island, redhead, was a sensation with his outgoing 30, six I par on the last nine to get 36 and 36.

A crowd of 1,500 looked on. The Christians, playing cool, deliberate'basketball, held a 11-10 lead after 10 minutes of play. Just before the half, Bob Kenney led a Rice spurt that put the visitors ahead 26-15 at intermission. Close All The Way But after five minutes o£ the second half, the Frogs had trimmed the lead to 26-24. Finally, with eight minutes to play they took the lead at 31-30.

RIVES Associaied Press Sports Writer HOUSTON, Feb. 12.—A swarm of humanity overran the Brae Burn Country dub -course todav, pouring about §30,000 into the United States war chest in return for an afternoon of laughs provided by Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. An estimated 10,000 persons watched the screen stars cavort in what was labeled a golf match but developed into a comedy, complete with floor show on the eighteenth green. Gallery Sets Record Fred Corcoran, tournament bureau manager of the Professional Golfers' association, estimated the size of the crowd. Corcoran said it was the biggest gallery ever to see a golf match in Texas, surpassing even the crowds at the National open in Fort Worth la<=t summer. Hope auctioned albums of Crosby records after the match, raping 522,250 in defense bonds and cash. Corcoran said the gate re- ceipta would swell to $30,000 the total amount of money turned over to the war funds drive as a result of the benefit. "Tarzan" In Trees For the record. Hope and Byron Nelson, professional, played Crosby and Professional Jimmy Demaret of Houston. Johnny Weiss- muller, the screen's Tarzan, played along, mostly in the trees, where he said, he belonged. ' The match ended all square because of a late rally by the Crosby-Demaret team. Crosby had a 78, six over par, while Hope reported an 80. The feats of Demaret and Nelson, who were under par with a 71 and a 70, respectively, went relatively unnoticed. Stars "Give Oul" The crowd came to see Crosbv and Hope give, and give they did wise-cracking all over the course. Hope, starting out, asked "his partner Nelson: "have you got your adrenalin with vou?" Later besieged by the throng, Hope said he wished ha had taken some, himself. Hope and Crosby were given honorary membership in the Texas PGA. Hope asked, "does thi? count outside of Texas?" and Crosby answered: "What else is there but Texas?" Hope, overhearing a woman remark about his form—golfing form—wiggled before putting and said "don't blame me for my form. You knoxv the government took my girdle away for the rubber/' WAR CAUSE?

The Buffs made six points during one minute of play, illustrating their ability to score when they had to. Price Brookfield was high man with 21 points for the winners, while Byron Gilbreath of Tech had 18. The Buffaloes have not lost a game to Border conference teams this year, and the triumph over Tech came in their first tussle since 1935. West Texas Stale (63)' FG FT Pis Brookfic.'d. f F.

The Ranchers are at home here to Texas Tech Friday night and will invade Canyon to battle the West Texas State Teachers Saturday night. Memories of last week's affairs when the Buffs 'held the score down to a mere 87 to 30 and Texas Tech coasted to a 47 to 23 triumph are too recent to expect elapse of a week's time to provide different outcomes. Gomez Signs Up For Estimated $12,000 NEW YORK, Feb. 12. (£»)—Vernon (Lefty) Gomez, who used to be hard to satisfy in the days when more money \vas involved, signed his 1942 contract with the New York Yankees today. His new contract was estimated to call for $12.000, about the same as he received last year, when he won 15 games and lost five to lead the American league in winning percentage. Gomez has been with the Yankees for 12 years and has won six .World series games without a defeat. At his peak he received S20.- OuO a season under a two-vear contract iif 1935 and 1936.

BILLY CONN TONY ZALE • -K -K -K Conn And Zale Fight Tonight By SID FEDER Asociated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK, Feb. 32 — Except as a pay-day, there is no apparent reason for Billy Conn to tangle with Tony Zale, .the middleweight champion in Madison Square Garden tomorrow night. This doesn't apply to the fight itself, because that figures to be a pretty fair .kind of taffy-pull, with Tony's heavy thumps matched against Billys boxing, ring generalship and weight edge. But on the face of it.. Billy has everything to lose and nothing to gain — except, as mentioned before, a piece of change, and that always comes in handy to a prospective father. To Meet Louis Again All roads for Conn point to his return match with Joe Louis in June, a little get-together that figures to draw a half-million dollars or more. And, if by some chance Zale should make an accident happen tomorrow night, it might very well mean the boys can say bye- bye to that jackpot. Meantime, in the financial aspect, as well as the artistic, Billy figures to do all right for himself in the present proceedings. Promoter Mike Jacobs estimates that some 12,000 customers will make the cash registers sing a $50,000 to $60,000 tune. Despite prohibitive odds on Conn, which have the gambling guys reporting no market on bets, the fight has caught on with the fistic faithful ever since the night Zale became the one-man boss of the middleweights by beating Georgie Abrams last November 28. That same night the bout with Conn was lined up. Denver City Evens Up Series With Muleshoe DENVER CITY, Feb. 32.

AvsUnche) AMARILLO, Feb. 12. — A ^ B Lubboek Westerners were erased from the District 1-AA picture when they bowed before the Amarillo Sandies here tonight by a score of 24 to 14. Tonight's victory clinched the district cage crown for the Sandies. Only one conference game remains for the Sandies this season—that against the Pampa Harvesters Feb. 19, and since Pampa is pretty well down the line in conference standings, Amarillo could lose.that'tilt and still have the district crown. Westerners Hustle The stubborn Westerners keot the Sandies on their, toes throughout tonight's game but'it was decidedly Amarillo's tilt and at no time did the visitors ever take the lead. Fairly evenly matched in height, with perhaps Amarillo having a slight edge in altitude, the two teams spent the best part of the opening quarter feeling each other out. Scoring In Last Half ., Holland on a free throw scored the first point of the evening which was soon matched by Walthall, Dorman accounted for the first field goal of the game just before the whistle for the first quarter which ended 3 to 1 for the Sandies. Paced by Holland and Hughes, the Sandies forged ahead and outpaced the Westerners to put the score at 7 to 4 for Amarillo at the half. The last half.saw more scoring with the closing minutes keeping the Scoreboard busy but at no time were the Westerners within four points of their opponents.
