Kirkpatrick, Lubbock District midleweight titllst, meets Mose Harjo of Abilene. fashion to keep the South Plains section in the running. J. D. Kirkpatrick, from Petersburg, winner of the Lubbock district middleweight championship, scored the quickest victory of the evening when he slipped the kayo punch, to Frank Evins of Edinburg, winner of the San Benito district tournament, to win in one minute and eight seconds of the first round, and survive for the Saturday night classics. Tech Boxer Wins Keith Kivlehen, featherweigh champion from Miami and Texas Tech, kept the Red Raider colors flying with a unanimous decision over Fred Gonzales, the San An tonio titlist. It was Kivlehen's second State tournament victory On the other side of the picture one Lubbock scrapper, and a fav orite to advance in the welterweight division after knocking out his first round opponent Thursday night, Roy Belk of Plainview, was victim of a surprise kayo at the hands of lanky Max Waller, kingpin of the Tyler district. Belk was taking the fight easily, had almost knocked Waller out and as the latter came up swinging wildly, Belk stepped into a Sunday punch and was floored for the count. Roach, Bradshaw Decisioned Losers in decisons were Bantamweight LaVern Roach of Plainview and Lightweight Buford Bradshaw of Littlefield, who last" year about this time were becoming popular favorites in the state semi-finals. Roach dropped a split decision to Hsotor Marquez of El Paso, and Bradshaw was outpointed by Gonzalo Pena, also of El Paso. Flyweight Roland Borger of Stinnet, after winning his first round bout Thursday, was stopped in the third round of his second fight tonight by Jose Andreas, Fort Worth champion, delegate to the National tournament two years ago. Andreas was getting the bes o£ the fight and Referee Toby Waggoner stopped it about midway the third stanza. Pul Up Good Fight Up against one of the toughest flyweights in State Golden Gloves history, the crouching Andreas, Borser put up a great fight until he dropped his defense in the third round due to fatigue and took Andreas' stout right hand punches to the head. He was knocked down twice before Referee Waggoner called a halt. In the second round, Borger fought the Fort Worth titlist on almost even terms, crashing rights to the little Mexican's jaw, and keeping his left hand in Jose's face. Andreas, however, had piled up enough points to.cop a decision even without the technical knockout ruling. The fight was the third on the night's card and resulted in the second defeat to the Lubbo:k team, Rhea Mitchell, light heavyweight, having been outpointed by another Fort Worth champion, chunky Bill Anderson, Thursday night.

The Calf Ropers bowed to a corresponding team from Slaton, 25 to 21. With the Cowboy's victory goes a story that should be of interest to Westerner followers. B. J. Stubbs poured 22 points through the mesh during the 20 minutes he was in the contest. And besides doing a commendable job of defending the Cowboys goal, R. W. Moyers had 10 markers. Starring with Stubbs and Moyers was N. W. Elston on de/ense. Coach Lovic Listen's prote- ges have won eight of 11 games during the season, scoring 220 points to 153 for their opposition. Stubbs has accounted for 88 points in nine games. Moyers has bagged 38 points, George Brewer 26, Mike Guy 16 and Elston 12, all in nine games.

(Continued On Page 7) It's "No Zale" As Billy Conn Wins Pittsburgh Heavyweight Toys With Tony To Take Easy Decision In 12 Rounds By SID FEDER Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK, Feb. 13—Like a kid with a new toy he found under il^ C'nnrt played with little Tony Zale for a dozen rounds tonight and galloped Arkansas Edges Out Ags, 4741 (By The Assiiclaicd Presn COLLEGE STATION, Feb. 13.— The Arkansas Razorbacks gained the lead in the last four minutes and held on to win from the Texas Aggies, 47 to 41, tonight in a Southwest conference basketball game. Bill Henderson of the Aggies and Razorback O'Neal Adams staged a scoring duel, with Henderson finally winning, 21 to 17. Stars Closely Guarded High-scoring R. C. Pitts was held to four field goals by the guarding of Ray Jarrett of the Aggies and missed 14 other shots. In the first, half Pitts failed to sink a field goal and five minutes of the second period wab up before he got one. The Razorbacks were hampered in the second half when Clayton Vynne limped during t!. whole eriod on a wrenched knee. Howver, he turned in a fine game. Deal Girls Stop daiou High, 17-6 ABERNATHY, Feb. 10. (Spe ial)—New Deal's girls basketbal earn emerged victorious over Ida ou in a two-out-three series her onight by winning a 17 to 6 deci ion in the third contest. As a result the New Deal team meets the Shallowater-Cooper win ner in a series to determine the .ubbock county girls cage championship. PROMPT COURTEOUS SERVICE Save up to 50% cm Unredeemed Diamonds, Watches, etc. Licensed and Bonded to an easy decision in 1 ladison Square Garden. Conn weighed 175-3/4; Zale 164V4. Despite the withering body attack for which Zale is famous, and vhich he kept firing all the way, Conn won going away from start o finish. And he did it in spite of performance that was at times low and at times lackadaisical. Only when he got his "Irish up" nd tore in at the middleweight hampion did he draw cheers from he crowd. Decision Was Lopsided Three times he let his temper _ive some zing to his attack, and on each occasion he had Zale hurt. The rest of the way it was a slow mauling match, with Tony trying aut unable to do much about it. The Associated Press score card gave Conn ten rounds and Zale .wo. Compared with the 13-round aerformance in which he barely nissed taking Joe Louis' heavyweight champion last June,' this was a strictly different Conn, who appeared, for the most part, content to pull out the decision And, unless he gets his machine in high _ again for his planned return match with the bomber this June, he's going to need more than what he showed tonight. Fought At Will Only when he opened up did he look like the Billy of last summer. The first time this happened was the seventh round, after Zale drew a slight bleeding from the Pittsburgh pretty boy's mouth with a hard hook. Billy ripped in with both hands flying, caught the Gary (Ind.) "man of steel" with a hook flush on the jaw, followed it up with a barrage and definitely staggered him. In the ninth round, Billy's "Irish" again dictated his battle. Zale connected with two stinging Hogan Ties For Fourth On 70; Top Crowded (Bv Tbe Associated Prtsi) SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 13 — Drawlin' E. J. (Dutch) Harrison, the Arkansas slow-poke, mused on the first tee today that he was out to regain the Texas open title he won in 1939 and promptly put wisdom in those words with a first round four-under par 67 that led the field. On bumpy greens that had mosl of the ranking ncmads nervous even from 18-inch distances, Harrison made them look like just another place to putt as he ran six birdies on his round of 33-34—67. Harbert Tied For Second Two par three holes stumped him—the 165-yard fifth and the 170-yard thirteenth—his only two bogies o£ the round. He missec both greens and failed to recover Harrison holds the Texas open 72-hole record, carving Brackenridge park to bits with a 271 to tal three seasons ago. The trans planted Arkansan, now o£ Chica go, was pursued by an unrulj crowd of obscure, but solid, youni professionals from scattered parts of the nation who connived against golf's big names in the first round. Bunched at 68, one shot oft the pace, were Chick Harbert, Errie Ball and Jack Grout.

So it was with Ball, from Charlottesville, Va., who has been making the winter tour for several seasons without notable success. He was 35-33 lor his 68.
