Third Game Will Hot BePiyed Win District Over Clarendon Girls The last shot of the game ( gave the Rockettes victory over the Clarendon Bronchoettes on Friday night, Feb. 21 and' the second victory Monday night, Feb. 24, was cinched by four points, to give the Wellington girls the District 2-A basketball championship. The first of the slated three game play-off was -played on the neutral Lefors court; the second, at Clarendon. With this the Rockettes won their first victory on the Clarendon court under the coaching of James Stavenhagen. The third game, necessary only if the first two were split, wiN not be played, and the Rockettes go directly into bi- district play-off with Gruver, Tuesday, March 3. Wellington won the first game 43-42 and the second 55 to 51. First Game The last-shot victory at Lefors came when Jane Orr put the Rockettes one point ahead with a jump shot from near the free-throw line, with 8 seconds left in an overtime period. Clarendon controlled tihe tip to open the period and worked the ball around trying to get a good shot. A mistake lost them the ball on out of bounds. Wellington took the bail and moved it on to the forwards' end of the court, where Joyce Holton was fouled. She made the first of a one and one free throw, but missed the second. Clarendon controlled the ball, moving it to their forwards end and scored with 35 seconds remaining in the overtime period. This (put them one point ahead. The Rockettes moved the ball down-floor, Joyce drove to the base line and passed the ball inside to Betty Courtney. Betty was covered and passed out to Jane Orr, who took the shot that won the game. Jane was high scorer for Wellington with 17 points, and Dorothy Richey had 21 for Clarendon. The score by quarters: Wellington 7 18 31 40 43 Clarendon 6 13 23 40 42 Second Game "The Rockettes were really in the right frame of mind to play a good' ball game," Coach James Stavenhagen declared. Because the lighting of the new Clarendon gym is of a different type and also brighter than that of the Rockettes home court, they spent aboul two hours on the Broncoette court before game time getting adjusted. This was a close game al the way, with Wellington scoring the first two points on a drive-in lay-up by Joyce Holton. Wellington maintained the lead during most of the first period as the guards did an outstanding job of holding the Clarendon forwards to two field goal®. The Broncoettes were aible to make 8 free throws, however, and had a 12-10 lead' at the end of the first period. This lead see-sawed back and forth during the second and at half time the score was tied 26-26. Early in the third, Clarendon took a 5-point lead. Wellington, however, was able to regain the lead and was ahead 37-35 at the end of the period. Both teams seemed to get lot in the last quarter, and had to shoot iihe ball more. Wellington had the lead by a narrow margin the entire time. With 50 seconds on the clock Clarendon made two free throws to pull within two points of Wellington and it was still anybody's • game. The Rockette guards ably got the ball down- court and the forwards stalled the 'ball until the 8-second point when Betty Courtney made a field goal to give Wellington a comfortable 4-point lead. Betty was high scorer with 40 pointe, and again Dorothy Richey was the Broncoettes' high scorer with 36. The game by quarters: Wellington 10 26 37 55 Clarendon 12 26 35 51 Rockets Led in Field Goals Bi-District Title Goes to Sanford-Fritch 68-55 A rally in the closing minutes of play was. not enough and the bi-district basketball crown slipiped from .the Skyrockets' hands as the Sanford- Fritch Eagles took the championship game 68-55 Tuesday night, Feb. 25, in the Amarillo College gymnasium. The Rockets made no excuse for the loss, but experienced sports eye detected a tenseness attributed to their youth, and an inability to put » mistake behind them once it was made. At times the District 2-A champions played a brand of Wells — from, page one many ways in which he helped them. For all this he did not want nor seek credit. Mr. Wells was born Aug. 14, 1900 in Bryson, Jack county, That same year his 'parents brought him to Collingsworth county, where his father was an eai-ly day merchant and banker. Active in civic affairs, Mr. Wells was a charter member of the Rotary Club and was president in 1944 and 1945. He was a member of the Methodist Church, the Masonic Lodge, the Kiva Shrine, and the American Legion. He was married to Miss Rose Prater Sept. 28, 1924. Funeral services for Mr. Wells were conducted at First Methodist Church Tuesday at 3 p.m. with the Rev. Davis Edens officiating. Burial was in the West Wellington cemetery under the direction of Kelso Funeral Home. Pallbearers were Jimmy Cochran, Jones Singley, John D. Glenn, Clyde Drake, Sandy Parsons Jr., Dan Henard, L. C. Hill and Bura Handley.

During the dates the short course is in progress, Barton will be available to assist farmers with individual problems and to provide on- the-farm instruction, according to Dwyer. Farmers interested in attending the short course should write or call the superintendent of schools. Cunningham, or the vocational ag teacher, Dwyer. An entry fee of $5.00 will be charged. Farm Welding Short Course Certificates will be presented to each enrollee who attends all the training sessions, Barton states that the short course will be adjusted! to the wishes and interests of farmers enrolled but that he expects to cover such subjects as safety in weilding, factors controlled by the operation in running a bead and striking an arc, types of electrodes, preparation of joints, distortion, cutting, hardsurfacing, and pipe welding. "Short courses in welding, aa well as in other areas, are now available to farmers throughout the state under the new co-operative program between the Texas Education Agency and Texas A&M College," stated Bob Jaska, associate professor, Department of Agricultural Education at Texas A&M, who coordinates the (programs. "This cooperative program," says Jaska, "is designed to make the services of specialists available to conduct short cours* es under the supervision of the public schools. Such a program will enable teachers of vocational agriculture to provide improved educational services to farm people." Specialists are available in the fields of beef cattle, insect control, farm management, farm electrification, farm welding, swine (production, tractor maintenance, dairy cattle, oxyacetylene welding, and pasture.

Coach _ James Stavenhagen was pleased with his boys, however, and praised the performance they turned in. As to field goals, the Rockets led 22-21, but they were able to hit only 11 of their 23 free shots, comtpared to 26-34 for the winners. It was not until late in the game that the Rockets were able to hit their free-4hrow stride. The Eagles took an early 11-4 lead, then Wellington narrowed it to 12-10, but Sanford- Fritch ted 18-12 at the end of the quarter. The margin was 39-27 at the half, and when Jerry Watkins of the Eagles fouled off, as did Wade Crook, that team's 6-7 forward. At this point the Rockets trailed only 7 points. That was the finish of Wellington as Whaley hit two free throws, Bill Stevens added a jump shot, Holley turned in a three-point play, Whaley canned another free toss and Jimmy Spencer hit a lay-up. That made it 51-33 and Wellinigton never really recovered although it did pull within 10 points of the Eagles twice in the fourth stanza. Holley, though playing much of the last half with a game leg, scored 25 to pace the Eagles, while Whaley added 14 For Wellington Ronnie Hurst scored 18 and Roger Weems 12. Sanford-Fritch carries a 265 record to the regional meel while Wellington wound up with a 24-7 mark. Sanford-Fritch, coached by Aubrey Spear, a Wellington high school graduate, will meet the district 8-A champion Eldorado in the Region 1-A tournament at Lubbock Saturday.
