Saturday the Ganders split in the Bryan High School Invitational tournament, dropping a weird 7-0 iramff to the eventual ' champion, St. Thomas, in the opening round, and stopping- host Bryan 3-1 on Soph Steve MeWHlisms' one-hitter for an unofficial consolation •championship. Loser Duke Jones, one-day out of bed with H virus attack, had a one-hitter poing- into the sixth- inning; of the .St, Thomas iranie. He weakened, walking three consecutive men and giving up a double to clean the bases. Before he and rcltver. ,Fred Huey. could get the siriVout, strong; St. Thomas had punched out a 7-0 victory. Baytown oiithit the Toms. 4-3, but failing to hit in the clutch once more paved the way' for Jones' eventual cave-in. But MeWHiiams. talented first- year man, paid his teammate* back for a similar blowup Tiws- «lay against South He .aided his .brilliant one-hit pitching with a tremendous triple to right-center.

C:\pps, running- his third quarter-mile of the nisrht. held the position until the final turn when he ate away five of the 10 yards but never could catch the Lamar anchor. Capps was the outstanding Gander performer at F.-eeport, snapping the old open quarter record with a brilliant 50.3. He ran a first lap or. the winning; Robert E. Lee sprini-medlay team. Rockhold will have his youthful team working on starts, baton passing, over and under distance maneuvers Monday. Not only was Smajslrla's incapacity felt in the relays but also ut Ihe high-jump pit when- he tied for third. A higher finish might have given Lee second- place instead of finishing third, ?-i point behind Pasadena. Lamar was left to pile up its ascronomica! 6S points when many Southeast Texas teams pulled out of the big meet. Port Arthur was one of the most conspicuous by its absence. The potent Yellow Jacket* entered the easier Cameron Relays, passing up another duel with 1-Jimar. Gone also were Galena Park and GaheMon. Pasadena's Herb Wukasch won the high-hurdles in 15.6. beginning to retain the form he showed nt Port Arthur iast spring *.vhen he was rated the state's fourth best hurdler. , Here Would Be Cage 'Natural Crosby Buff3 Moved Into New District Clarke Heironimus' powerful Crosby Buffaloes have been moved from their old football district, 20-A, and placed in a new bracket with even stronger teams. The new District 24-A will lie made up of teams from Tomball. Waller, Kline, and potent Humble, moved down from AA ball. Crosby's old district was composed of Dayton, Hull-Daisetca. Sour Lake, Kountze. Anahuac, and East Chambers of Winnie. Heironimus' surprising team won the class A quarterfinals last year by beating Alto, but feil to mighty Luling, 20-6, in the semifinals. Crosby's new schedule has not yet been drawn up, but the usual ten game matching will be followed. NEW YORK —UP— The erring shame of this basketball season would seem to be that NCAA champion San Francisco and NIT champ Louisville won't meet each other — as they would have in other Olympic years. A clash between the twin titans of the college courts became a "natural" when Louisville and its six-eight Charley Tyra drubbed Dayton 93 to SO" Saturday in the nationally-televised finale' of the National Invitation Tournament at Madison Square Garden. In other Olympic years, this match would have'been made, too. Then, both the NCAA and. NIT champs moved into the playoff tourney for the Olympic team." But the rules have been changed for this year's Olviupic tryout tourney at Kansas City April 2 to 4. Instead of champion teams, the colleges will be represented by a hand-picked squad of l-l ''ail- stars." who will compete against a similar squad from the armed forces and the one-two teams from the national AAU tournament, the Seattle Buchan Bakers and the Phillips Oilers. So the fans will have to wonder just what would happen in a. final test of strength between San Francisco's Dons, led by all-America Bill Russell, and ihe Cardinals from the blue grass with their terrible Tyra. Coach Pete Newell of California, whose team lost to San Francisco during the season and who watched Louisville Saturday, casts one vote for the 'Dons, saying, "Louisville has a fine team," but I'd have to £0 for San Francisco. The difference is Russell. BUY A NEW 1956 FORD BEFORE LICENSE TIME (April 1st) Thod Felton's Glass- (Continued from Page Nine) Times-Herald's first all-state team, selected at season's end.
