Anton Smajstrla and .Terry Oapps finished five-yards behind flyinjr Lamar in 3:25.3. Capps was worn out in the Lc-e Relays and Rockhold substituted for him. possibly taking away some effectiveness. At Freeport. ihe sicnder quartor Star did his third 440 within &0 mir.uies while May end Smsjsrtrla were only hours out of bed. It all serves to give Gar.cJer followers anticipation. A desire to see them race Lamar with everything just, right. Will thf Ganders have it in them to upset the mijrhty Keil- skins in their own meet? Or will sputterin' Port Arthur finally produce AS expected and beat both? PreHminaries began el 2 p.m. with finals set at 7:30 p.m. in Hous- lon's Public School Stadium.

Young. May, Sinajstrls and John Russell are favored to win the sprint-medley in the Houston carnival, but are in for considerable competition from Port Arthur. Russell had to turn a sub-two- minute half-mile anchor to nip the flying- Yellow Jackets at the tape during the Lee Relays. Capps, whose two stirring finishes have produced 4*0 victories at. Baytown nnd Freeport, will be sorely pressed by Lamar's Frank 1'riee nnd Freeport's Denton Farker. Sn'.njstrln, after n 51-flat in Tuesday time-trials, could be entered in the open quarter. Another expected duel will be. the grudge battle between Lee's three top milers, Jerry Mabry. Jimmy 'McLean, Bubba Hawkins and Lamar's Barnett Garrison. Garrison 'elbowed Mabry off the track in the Freeport meet and went on to win. Another great miler, Fort Arthur's Johnny Walker, won the Lee Relays With a fine 3:38.2. Bill Finch and Prentice Davis will be threats in the shot-put, expected to be "won by Lamar's powerful Jim. Allison. Finch pitched the 12-pound ball 52-9 at Freeport to fin'ish second to the Lamar giant's 54-3 H. Lamar, despite injuries nnd illness, still remains a top-heavy favorite to win its fourth consecutive major meet. • ( Bert Kivell's lads, powerful in practically every event, are early favorites to win the AA state championship.
