DRIVE THE BIG NEW Studebaker Gander Records In Danger At Freeport Two, and possibly three, B&j town records at Freeport's Gulf Coast Relays arc in immediate danger in Friday's j-^vp.rtfh running of Herbert Hopper's meet. The pair were sec only 'last spring as Leo turned out its greatest track team Jr. history , . . the mile-relay and mite-run. Beverly Rpckhold's mile-relay foursome., which later smashed the world record, with a 3:17.9 clocking, eased through no competition at Freeport. in 3:25.S, for a new record. Now Lamar's fine foursome threatens to better that but a year later. GETTING RID OF THE KINKS Visit Our New No. 5 Store Nest to Back Turner Chevrolet Co.

Regular 3.95 to 4,95 OO Trades Day Only Lfmif—3 to a Customer MAX BAYTOWN The Sforc of Pcrsonaffreo 1 Service night in the basketball quarterfinals of the National invitation Tournament, but third-Seeded St. Joseph's is only even money against Seton Hall. The quarterfinals grot tmdenvay with one surprise Monday night as short, scrappy St. Francis o£ Brooklyn upset fourth-seeded Niagara 74-72 in overtime. Then second-seeded Louisville made the form sheet look a little better by -using its great height and bench strength advantages to trounce defending 1 champion Duquesne 54-72 before a crowd of 6,250 at Madison Square Garden. The Dayton-Xavief winner will tackle St Francis in the semifinals on Thursday, and the SL Joseph's-Seton Hall •winner will lace Louisville. At this point, the experts still believe the seedings will hold true In that Dayton and Louisville -will tangle in the final round on Saturday afternoon in a game to be nationaily-televised. Dayton, led "by seven-foot Bill Uhl, carries a 23-3 record into Tuesday night's fray and appears to have much too much height for Xavier (17-10). This seems more likely than ever, now that six-five Dave Piontek has been dropped from the Xavier squad. Piontek was banished because he -violated the team's curfew after the first- round victory over St.. Louis. Six-six Hank Schmidt probably will step into Piontek's shoes, but he averaged only 6.6 points per game where Piontek's average was 15.0 and the exile also was the team's top rebounder. St. Joseph's (21-5) .ordinarily would be the favorite in the other game because of its seeding, but Seton Kail (20-4) gained in esteem by its 96-78 first-round victory over dangez-ous Marqueite. \Vcst Adds Two Stars KANSAS CITY—UP— Art Bur.te of Utah and Bill Logan of Iowa were added Tuesday to the West squad for the! East - West Shrine game here March 26. Newest addition to the East squad was Julius McCoy of Michigan State. A third player named was Jim McLaughlin o* St Louis. The West squad has signed Pachin Vicens o£ Kansas State. Daliss Dobbs o' Kansas and P.obin Freeman of Ohio State.

Last spring Lee's Bubba, Hawkins toured the mile in 4.-40.S to snap the Gulf Coast record. But that mark is being threatened by not one but three men. SWG Nines GeiSetfor League Race By UNITED PRESS Southewest Conference Baseball teams began their last week "or practice competition Monday with, three out of five teams winning exhibition game. Southern Methodist plays Sam Houston in. Dallas Tuesday in an attempt to win its eighth "straight game. The Mustangs so far have the best practice record in the Jtop. Conference competition begins Saturday, with the University o£ Texas favored slightly. SMU edged Sam Houston 2-1 in 12 innings, Texas Christian downed the University of Oklahoma S-2, JGnnesota beat Texas 125, Texas Lutheran spoiled Rice's opener 4-0 and Sul Ross whipped Baylor 13-1 in Monday's, games. Ganders - - (Continued From Page 15) and Riley slid in with the winning run. Les Greathouse set down the Ganders, one-two-three, in the last inning insuring Texas City its Cinderella victory. Baytown took a 1-0 lead in the third when Oviedo singled and raced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Charles Esterak that fetched a low-throw by Roberts. Oviedo scored on Porter' single to left Li the fifth Leo tacked on another run as Second Baseman Bobby Sanders reached first on an error and scored on Porter's tremendous triple to left center. Texas City cut the 'a<?vantage to one. 2-1, in top of the sixth, when Surratt blasted a liner down third- base. Miles knocked it down beautifully, recovered but threw wildly down the right-field lino. Surratt raced all the way to third before the ball was retrieved. He came in to score when Right-fielder Eddie Padgett's roller was muffed by Porter at shortstop. Monday the Lee nine fielded almost flawlessly as Vegas cut down, "the heavy-hitting Pasa- denans. never allowing a man to reach second base. Not until David Sedler punched a sharp-liner into the hole at third- base, leading off the last inning, cfid the Eagles get a hit off ice- water Vegas. He struck out nine in his seven-inning stint and only four men reached f irst, one by a walk, one by a pitch, an error and Sadler's single. In the Texas City contest Lee outhit the Stingarees, 6-4, and out crrored them 6-3. The Ganders banged seven hits off losing Pasadena pitcher, Ed Burke. Baytown jumped 1-0 ahearj of Pasadena in the third when Oviedo singled, took second on Esterak's sacrifice and kept going to third when the bag was uncovered. Vegas grounded sharply to third, Oviedo scoring. Lancaster and Oviedo scored to send Lee 3-0 ahead in the fifth. Lancaster singled, went to third on Oviedb's double and was squeezed in by Estorak. Oviedo scored on Vegas' single to right. Lee made it 4-0 in the sixth when J'orU'r reachwl fir.«t on an error, was sacrificed to second by Charles Mills, took third on another «rror and came home on Ted Dodd's single to renter. Adams will open the South Part; game with Dodd behind the plate, Oviedo at first. Sanders at second, Miles at third and Porter at short. Mills, Lancaster and Esterak will patrol the outfield. Lamar's Barnett Garrison has done a 4:35, Port Arthur's Johnny AVulker won the Lee Relays with •l:3S.2 and Hawkins* teammates, Jerry Mabry, and Jimmy McLean have been around -i:-tO several times. Norman Adams' discus record, 150-3 U inches, set in 1953, may be safe, but it too could go by the boards.
