,, With Wins Over McLcon Fake 2-A Title Tied in First The determined Wellington Skyrockets took the court to •win the District 2-A championship in a victory over the McLean Tigers 72 to 46 Friday evening, Feb. 14. The Rockettes also were victorious, 49-36, and put themselves in a tie for first place with Clarendon. DIDACTICS —By Deskins Wells Playing their finest game of ;he season before a standing room only crowd, the Rockets >ut on a show of team play that began to stall the Tigers the the I feel better aibout the prospects of a lake in Collingsworth county than I have in some time. There was a meeting in Wellington this- past Tuesday between representatives of the Greenbelt and the Salt Fork water officials that may lead to a solution of the impasse that Kad developed between, the two water autjvori- ties. There is not too much that can be said about it at this .time, but the officials are Working on the problem in an effort to iron out, their differences. Naturally tnere was disappointment when Wellington did not land the garment factory that .went to Pampa; but I feel that the Chamber of Commerce did a 1 commendable job iii their efforts to secure the new industry, and that the experience will be valuable in working for other projects. After all there were four other cities, three of them larger than Wellington, trying for the factory and Wellington came out second. Now the Chamber is •busy working on another pro- the early minutes of game, and kept it up as margin widened. The Rockets used a man-to- man full court press to work on McLean's weaker baill handling and to neutralize to some extent the effectiveness of the Tigers-' all-state six-foot-six Derrith Welch. Wellington had used a zone full; court press in the two earlier games which McLean won and the man-to-man' position was used for the first time by the Rockets. When the ball crossed midline, the Rockets fell to a 1-3-1 defense to put a man in position of interference from any direction the ball was sent in. Rocket team work reached a new pitch as the ball was fed back and forth to get it to the man in best 'position to put it in the basket. If their foot-work was good, so was the Rockets' accuracy. They hit better tfcan 50% from the field—an unusually high percentage in high school playing. High pointer for the Rockets was Roger Weems, with 25 points, while Wayne Barton hit 20. Welch's 24 was high for the Tigei's. The game by quarters 1 : Wellington 17 32 47 72 McLean 7 21 29 46 Rinckettes-Tigerettes The Rockettes showed their continuing improvement to take the game from McLean 49-36. Taking a 7-point lead by the end of the first quarter, .they continued widening the margin until the fourth. Good defensive play marked the game for the Rockettes. Betty Courtney's 20 points were game high, while Joyce Holton made 17 and Jan Bailey scored 15 for -McLean.

John Connally has announced that he will let the voters of the 100th Judicial District nominate a successor to fill the unexpired term of the late Judge Luther Cribble. This means he will wait until the May primary and appoint the nominee of .the Democratic •party as district judge. This seems like a wise and fair decision for it favors neither candidate and with the May primary only two months away it is not a long delay. The court duties can be handled' by judges of other districts in this short time just as they do when a judge is ill or disqualifies himself. Over at Memphis J. Claude Wells had this to say of the Governor's decision: "His point was well taken and it smacked of some of the actions of King Solomon of olden times." Whoops! Quail took care of Groom Tuesday night and now we have two district chanVpions from Collingswortih county in the same year. It would have been a pretty kettle of fish if Coach Lacy's 'boys had lost at Groom for Quail, Samnorwood, Hedley and Groom would have been in a four way tie for the championship. The game at Groom was hectic enough as it was. Quail led 19 to 15 at the end of the first quarter, but the game was tied 40 to 40 at the half and continued to be a ripsnorter right up to the The Quail Quails retained sole possession of first place in the District 9-B basketball race by defeating the Samnorwood Eagles 96-70 in a game played at Quail Tuesday night, Feb. 11. The 'Bobwhites lost to the Norwood Eaglettes 52-27. Bobwhites vs. Eaglettes The first quarter was very close with the Eaglettes managing a one-point lead. However, the second quarter spelled disaster for the Bobwhites as the Norwood girls built up an 18 .point halftime advantage. The third quarter was even as each team scored 11 points. But the Bobwhites again hit a cold spell in the fourth quarter, scoring only 3 points to 10 for Norwood. Lonetta Neeley scored 12 for Quail and Jo Nell Breeding 23 to lead Norwood. By quarters: Bobwhites 12 13 24 27 Eaglettes 13 31 42 52 Quails vs. Eagles The Quails never trailed in the game as everything seemed to go right for them. After building up a 14-point first, quarter advantage, the Quails extended their lead to 28 at the half. The second half was much closer, as the Norwood boys began to climb, but it was too late. The 96 points scored by the Quails was the highest on their court this season and second to the 110 scored at Mobeetie. The Quails also hit 95 against Vernon B in the Childress tournament. All five Quail starters hit double figures as Dale Morris scored 29, Robert Russell 24, Carrol Kennedy 18, Bruce Ward 13 and Joe Harris 11. Jimmie Martindale and Lloyd Stice each scored 24 for Samnorwood. By quarters: Quail 23 52 75 96 Eagdes 9 24 44 70 final whistle with ning 79 to 73.
