Bulldogs Romp Over Springfield, Mo., OI-5O Fayetfeville Pulls Away In Last Quarter Barnes And Parker Spark Team To 14th Victory Of Season By ALLAN GILBERT. JR. Beset by a number of difficulties during the 32-minute course of th« qame Fayetteville High never-the- less prevailed over Springfield, Mo., High School, 61-50, last night at Root Gym. The contest came as the climax to the high school's "Color's Day" celebrations, and was the 14th win in 16 games. In .the first half the Bulldogs, the coach and the fans nil got confused with the time, and Fayetteville had more t h a n a little trouble with the pressing defense of the visitors in the second half. And from start to finish a muscular young lad named Speck Ttadgers was causing the home team all sorts of anguish. The 'Dogs were at a decided height disadvantage, but with Bass Trumbo leading the way under both hoops more than held their, own in rebounding the ball. Springfield scoitd first as Giboney sank a free throw. But Ray Barnes connected seconds later on a short j u m p shot. Rodgers fired a long push-shot for the visitors to put' his team , ahead 4-3, and thrn Barnes flashed back for a layin to give the -Bulldogs a permanent feacl. From 4-3 Fayelteville never again lost the lead although it saw itj margin cut to one point as late as the fourth quarter. Hitting well from outside, and finding room for drives under the basket the Fayetteville team gradually built up a 10-point edge in the second quarter. With Fayctte-! ville leading 30-20 the fans began yelling "Shoot, shoot," as the clock approached t h e seven - minute mark. Everyone, except Springfield, promptly got excite*! and before the situation settled down at the close of the quarter Spring- f i e l d had picked up three ridiculously easy baskets to cut Fayetteville's lead to four points. Comi Back Strong The visitors came back strong In the third quarter on the amaz- InK play of rtocigers. who accounted for five baskets in that period. The Springfield team pulled up to a 43-44 deficit just at the close of the quarter, but Larry Head, subbing for Ken Crudup, who had four fouls, hit a jump-shot, giving Fayetteville a SG-43 edge at the ' third quarter. Springfield, on two of four free throw conversions, narrowed the lead to one point early in the last quarter. McConnell then made a free throw and Billy Parker, back in the scoring column after a three-game layoff, bucketed two goals. With a 51-47 lead the 'Dogs went into a stall and Springfield went into a full-court pi-ess. Fayetteville failed to get the ball past mfdcourt in the allotted 10 seconds to begin with. JBut Springfield failed to score with the oppor- unity and then became so zealous in its pressing that it forgot to watch the man with the ball. McConnell dribbled about 15 feet, unnoticed and unobstructed, and laid in a basket. From that point on the Fayetteville team cut the pressing defense up pretty bad as Springfield was forced to press near mid-court leaving the zone under its basket unguarded. Barnes, with eight field goals in 10 attempts, was high and hot for Fayetteville with 20 points. The m o s t encouraging, thing was Parker's return to the scoring column. Suffering from an injured wrist Parker had-scored but two points in the three previous games. Last night he unlimbered for 17. "'odsrer'. ot Springfield, exhibiting an ability to hit from anywhere and any position, getting 22 points. Gayie Jones was presented as Queen of "Color's Day" just prior to the opening tip-off. The win was-Fayetteville's see- bnd of the season over Springfield. Fayetteville hit 23 of 48 field goal attempts and made 15 of 20 free throws. Springfield hit on 21 of 53 attempts, making but eight of 21 free throws. Springfield's Dameron distinguished himself by missing nine straight free throws.

Prairie Grove earlier in the week haJ, finished its season by downing West Fork. Atha led the Elks to their win with 24 points, but was injured late in the game. Curley, with 1J, topped Greenland. Atha hurt his hand after being fouled while attempting- a shot under the basket. It is not known how long the injury will sideline him. * A playoff, possibly next week, was in prospect for the conference. The by-laws call for a playoff on a neutral court in the case of ties. The decision wil be made' between the schools involved. Prairie Grove and Elkins each defeated the other to account for the' only loop losses suffered by either team. Bentonville Baseball Star Signs Contract With Cards By BOB FE/WMAN * · Benlonville-(Special)-lt's a long j u m p from the amateur Arkansas- Missouri Ozark League into professional baseball--one which few local "pride and joy's" ever make. But the golden arm of pro-ball has plucked two men from the Bentonville Merchants squad here in the last two years. The latest to sign is Brock Rowley, 18-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Bob Rowley of this city. Brock, who played shortstop for the Merchants the last two seasons, signed with the St. Louis Cardinals last fall as a bonus rookie. He will leave for spring traininc in about two weeks. BROCK IM« ky Ptarman) ROWLEY Texas Open Delayed By Heavy Rain San Antonio, Texas-Par-wrsck- ing is expected .to diminish somewhat today as the $10,000 Texas Open moves into its second round. Rain, which caused postponement of play yesterday, should bring higher scores. The 6.400-yard course Brackenridge Park Course may come closer 1o matching its par figures. Golfers on the winter tour, say it actually was a 68 or 69 par the way it was before the rain, instead of 71. Lew Worsnam of Oakmont, Pa., will lead a field of more than 160 into the cutting down round. The 60 low professionals and ties plus (lie 10 low amateur* will play the final 36 holes tomorrow. Worsham shot an ei^ht-under-par 63 in thp ooeiiing round Thursday. He led Walter Romans of Baltimore, Md.. by a stroke. A heavy rain came yesterday after 53 players had gone off the tee in the second round. It flooded the greens and brought postponement of pliy.

BOWL FOR HEALTH Jim Rmlnn Howllnt Unoi. Eugene Stevens, first baseman for the Merchants two years ago, made a name for himself playing Class D ball In North Carolina last season. He is now in spring training with the Boston Red Sox in Sarasota, Florida. Rowley got his big chance at the Cardinal tryouts in Fayetteville last fall. Fred I lawn, the Redbird scout, took a liking to the way the 180-pound, 6-1 lad functioned and sent him to Houston for a week's workout with the Houston club. There the powers that be watched the Bentonville hoy perform and at the end nf the workout he was signed with a bonus. He is assigned to Goldsboro, N. C., but is not bound with that team should the St. Louis managers decide to elevate or shift him. At 18 Brock is a junior in tlie University of Arkansas College of Engineering where he is majoring in civil engineering. Draft board and playoffs permitting he plans to resume his studies next fall. Like so many others Brock learned his ABC's.about baseball when he played American Legion ball in his early teens. At 13 he pitched for the Legion team in Oak Ridge, Tenn. Then the family moved to Tulsa where he pitched and played shortstop with two different Legion lea'ms for three seasons before coming to Benlon- ville. He lettered as a freshman playing third base for Northeastern State College at Tanlequah, Okla., and was thereby made ineligible for a berth on the Razorback squad last spring. A versatile athlete, hi lettered in basketball three years at Keystone High School in the Tulsa Little Seven Conference.
