Texas A. And M. Eases Past Razorbacks, 47-42 Cadets Hot In '.REVIEW OF THE YEAR_BvAUnM,v.r, Longhorns Rated Just Bock Of T.C.U. In SWC First Period; Stall For Win SEPTEMBER _ Porkers Play Same Game They Did In First Aggie Clash Saturday nighl at the Arkansas] field house it appeared that no- 1 body had left the ship but Billy Hester. That is to say, the Razorbacks were in the same boat without the services o fthe seven-foot Louisiana center, that they were in with him. Th2 Texas Aggies defeated the Porkers, 47-42. The amazing similarity between Saturday's game and a clash between the two teams a week earlier tended to indicate that Arkansas is no weaker without the departed center, who left school for his home this week. And not much stronger either. I n f h e first game, played In Dallas as a part of the conference's holiday tournament, the Aggies built a big first quarter lead, saw Arkansas f.torm back in the second period, picked up a working margin in their third period, and then played it cozy to stall out a win. The same procedure was followed Saturday. The Aegics, hitting eight of their first nine field goal attempts, moved ahead, 18-9 in the first period. They jumped to a 17-7 margin at the end of six and a half minutes. Opening the second period Coach" Presley Askew substituted .1. W. Walker for starting center Orval Elklns, Floyd Sagely for starting forward Gene Lambert, and Marvin Adams for starting forward Walter Kearns. Trynn Lewis and Sammy Smith remained in the game and this fivcsome. sharked by Adams, ont.scored the Aggies 16-8 during the quarter to tf/OMAU TO SWM THE CHAftNELl. 0or/l iWs e/ MAKM8 /TfKOM College Presidents Go To Work Drafting Sports Code WashinRton-(/P)-Ten c o 11 e g presidents today buckled down to elope out the half only one point j the tough chore of writing R strict bcMnd 25-26. code for intercollegiate athletics. ' ; . , » , . t They hone to complete their jnb Adams scored nine of Arkansas , by n i g h t f a l i t But cxac ti y what they 16 points in that drive. In the third period the same crew took the floor, but found its ·nark lark'-g. The starters reentered the game and nicked no the Razorback's' only five points of the ouarter. which ended with the Aegies holding a 44-30 edfe. ' In tl^c final in minutes of play Arkansas started fast. With two minutes and 20 seconds elansed the Boss -tied the score at 35-35, but with the pressure on, the Cadets' .Jewell McDowell, nil-conference 'last year, took over. McDowell .broke.. the.,, tie with .a goal fro"! iurt in front of the basket. Then Walt Davis, the big Aegle center, hit three field goals in a row. all of the layin variety. That put A. and M. ahead. 44-37. From V'ere McDowell proceeded to give Porker fans and players ,T great pvhih'tion * f dribbling and ball control stymieing any hope for an Ar'-ansas' win. After monopolizing the ball for almost two minutes McDowell ended bis Southwest Conference cage career with a swishcr from about 18 feet out for the Aggies' lost points. McDowell graduates at mid-term. have written down have n far-reachiii which may effect on col- r-reachiii« e lege sports -- won't be made public immediately The report first will go to the executive committee of the American Council on Education for its approval or disapproval. Nn date lias been set for an executive committee meeting, but Dr. -John A. Hannah, president of Michigan State College and chairman of the special sports committee, said he hope? ft meeting will be called immediately. In addition to writing the. report toda.v,''.tlW' cQmmiHee. was. to . hear froni Ben .Carnevale of the Naval Academy, representing the nation's basketball coaches, and Everett Barnes of Colgate, representing the baseball coaches. Hur GrW Coichti At an earller.meeting the college presidents listened to the football coaches, and then derided that football games should be confined to the f a l l . Their tentative conclusion: No football games after the tost Saturday in November, or possibly the first Saturday in December. They still mur.t decide which date they prefer. But either way they go, it would mean the end of postseason! bowl games if their Davis and McDowell lied for j recommendations are accepted, high scoring honors-with I I points! other decisions: They foil t h a t each. Lambert and Adams made 10 each. to pace Arkansas. T h e . biggest thrill of the game as far as -Porker fans were concerned. was a desperation shot by I.-=wis as the second quarter ended. The shot was fired just as Lewis broke over the center line and it dropped through the hoop without touching the rim. The distance was about 45 feet. The box- score: freshmen should not piny on var- fity team;;, that "lavish entertainment" should be prohiibted as a 'vay nf attracting prize high school athletes, and that college players should take the same courses as other students and keep up with their clashes.

It's Old Vs.

Golfs veterans include such names as Ben Hogan, S;mi Sncacl, Lloyd Mangrum, Gary Micldlnuoff, Dutch Harrison. Law.son Little Johnny Bulla, Vic GhM.zi, and Ellsworth Vines. H o g a n and Snparl, however, passed up thi: tnurnament. But it ' the yoiingcr generation that forms the bulk of the ton contenders today for the $4,000 first prize. Setting the pace is Ted Kroll of New Hartford. N. Y., making the winter tour on his honeymoon. Kroll, only hoping that "I can keep putting this well," topped flfl others at the 54-hole stage Sunday with 214. His last round of 68 was tho best posted by any contestant in three days. But breathing hot behind is one of the vets, the steady Harrison, who seldom docs badly over 7,020- yarri. 71-par Riviera, the tournament course.
