Baylor Stalls For Win Over Arkansas, 44-39 New York-(/P)-The nation's college basketball scandal, which Is now pointing a finger, at the Ken- tucky-Arkan»s (fame of 1949-50, had a key witness today with the arrival here of Walter Hirsch, captain of the 1950-51 University of Kentucky team, as a material witness. Hirsch's decision to appear in New York, WOE an about-face on his previous stand, according to district Attorney Frank Hogan, who first broke the scandal last year. Hogan said Hirsch had refused repeatedly to cooperate 'vith the investigation while he was a student at Kentucky. "· Hirsch was not permitted to en- SPORTS IORTHWIST MKANSAS TIMES, Fayetteville, Arkamal, Wtdnttdoy, F.brucry 20, 1952 Bears Gamble On Freeze With One-Point Lead Visitors Score First Victory Of Season Over Hogs The Baylor Bears, beaten twice .before this season by Arkansas, fambled on a stall with only a one-point lead last . night. The gamble paid off with a 44-39 verdict over the Razorbacks at the Arkansas Field House. Floyd Sagely sank a free throw to put Arkansas ahead 1-0, then sank another to give Ihe Razorbacks a 2-1 lead. Baylor's Bill Harris, who counted for 19 of his leam's points' to top all scorers, then made five points in succession and Arkansas was behind for the next 32 minutes of the game. Both teams Iraried miscues with Arkansas keeping pace in the field goal department but falling down badly in free'throws. Baylor managed a seven-point lead at the end of. the second" quarter after hold- in?, the Hogs to only four points ' in the period. The Porkers hit on i but two of nine free throws in i the second quarter. In the third q u a r t e r the Hogs picked up two poinls on the Bears to" trail 23-33 going into the last, 10 minutes. Baylor's scoring Ralph i Johnson, held in.check beautifully .by Walter Kearns, fouled out in the Ihird period with only four points. Opening the last period the Porkers caught fire and netted 10 points while allowing Baylor four during the initial four minutes and 45 seconds. This put Arkansas into a 38-37. But Baylor, working . lor a position to start a stall, tied the count at 38-33. went ahead 40-38, and after giving up a point on a free throw by Sam Smith, began a freeze. ' The Porkers managed to,break the freeze a few times but could not pick up another score. The clincher came with less than a minute to play when Baylor, taking the ball out-of-bounds on a foul the f i f t h time in a row, suddenly sprung a man toward the basket. The _ man was Norman in spangled skirls'and slickly "ta i _,-... i |ore ^ ski sujts s | )ou j c j come to t ] rescue of the point-starved Unite Stales Olympic team today. Tlie Americans have been shi out cold in the scoring column tlirec straight days after gettin off to a flying start. But with the figure skating and the slalom specialists takii over, things are apt to be di: ·ferent. The special slalom for wome 465 meters almost straighl dow an icy mountainside at Roedklciv could easily have gold medal win ncr Andrea Mead Lawrence the starring role. Mrs. Lawrence, 19-year-ol daredevil from Rutland, Vt., saile home seconds ahead of the fiel in the giant slalom last Thursda for America's first victory in th 1952 games. The giant slalom was ncarl three times as long and the girl had lo go down only once. Tocla they must race twice down th ice. Backing up Andy will be Kal; Rudolph of 'Hayden. Colo., wh was fifth in the giant slalom; Imo gene Opton of Conway, N. H., wh should find the shorter run mor lo her liking, and Jannette Bur of Seattle, Wash. Miss Burr hasn't been able ti buy s break in the Olympics si far despite an excellent showing in pre-Olympic cu/npetilion. The Slalom could prove her meal. Girls In Running. The U. S. has three girls in the running for points in the women': figure skating which ends tonigh with the free skating..

"Ind' '," said Hogan, "his refusal to come to New York and cooperate as a witness was the basis on which the University of Kentucky did not permit him to re-enroll for the semester beginning this month." Hogan charged in an affidavit 1 signed by his assistant, Vincent A. G. O'Connor, that Hirsch snd two other players, Dale Bjjrnstnble and James Line, accepter! bribes to shave points in games played in Kentucky and Arkansas in 1949 and 1950. Under Indictment Barnstable already is under indictment, along with former All- roll in school this semester, and Americas, Alex Groia and Ralph has been working in his home | Beard, on charges of accepting money to fix'one game here. Line is \vorking for an Arkansas oil company and said he had no comment immediately, but t h a t he might have a statement later today. Neither Kentucky nor Arkansas had laws against bribery in con- n 'tion with sports events in 1049 and 1950. The a f f i d a v i t signed 'by O'Connor said that Hirsch, Barnstable and Line had turned down offers to fix some games in New York. Another Kentucky All-America, Bill.Splvey, wil testify before the ;rand Jury. He asked in. December that his' 1 name be" removed from the eligibility list until, he said, he could clear his name. Now hopes to be reinstated for tournament play. The grand Jury han received . sworn testimony, according t o ' O'Connor's a f f i d a v i t , that Hlrnch, I Barnslablc nnd Line were offered JI.OOO eneh by two alleged fixers, Eli Kaye and Nicholas English;, lo shavo noints in the Kentucky-St. JVin's giimc In, Madison Square Garden on December 15, 1949.

Tenley Ajbrighl of New Center, Mass., ranked second after Miss Altwegg going into the free style, and Sonya Klopper, 17-year-old North American champion from Brooklyn was third. Virginia Baxter, a tiny blonde from Detroit, stood seventh with a chance to move into the scoring column. While the girls finish their event the men figure skaters rest for 24 hours before tackling their free skating. When they do it will be America's Dick Button against the field. The Harvard studenl built up his usual lead in school figures yesterday and his free skating is even better. Helmut Seibt of Austria, European champion, is second to Button in the school figures with Jimmy Grogan of Colorado Springs, Colo., third and Hayes Jenkins of Akron, Ohio, fifth. One event today that won't bring the Americans any points is the 50 kilometer 31.07 miles cross country ski race. This one he- longs to the Scandinavians for sure and the likely winner is Niles Karisson of Sweden who won it Tour years ago at St. Moritz. IE he does win he will be the first 1948 Olympic champion to repeat lis success here. Talk About Success But when you talk about success in these 1052 games you don't lave to go further than H j a l m a r Andersen.

Next Monday the Class B schools in the western h a l f of District One get their district basketball tournament under way at Greenland. The meet is arranged so that all games will be played at night and the schedule runs the entire week. i Gentry, coached by Mel McGaha, probably will be regarded HS the tournament favorite. Mulberry, from the extreme southern part of Ihe district, is of u n k n o w n quality but reports indicate that it has a fine team and must be considered the tourney dark-horse. Elkins and Prairie Grove, the Washington County powers, are also highly regarded. Since the district is divided in two sections only the winners of each t o u r n a m e n t q u a l i f y for the state meet. Elkins is the defending champion in One-West. Three games are on tap Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday., and Thursday nights. The two semifinal tilts are set for Friday and the f i n a l battle will be staged on Saturday. Gentry, featuring a well-drilled and scrappy team, earned considerable prestige by winning the annual Springdale Invitational Tournament earlier this year. Almost all the Class B teams in the district were entered in that meet and it was considered a fair test of strength amon^ the schools in- Parnell Only Red Sox Player Not Signed Up Sarasola, Kln.-(/l'j-Mcl Parnell, the Boston Red Sox' star righl- innd pitcher, w;is among the missing today when new manager Lou Boudrenu started spring training w i t h a group of 17 flingers nnd three catchers.

However, since Gentry is a Benton County school its team has not come ' in contact with the Washington County clubs very often and hence comparisons arc not too accurate. Some of the Washington County coaches feel that Gentry will find the fioinK tougher the second time they tangle with teams in this arra. Also considered a vital factor in the outcome of the tournament is lhc Greenland gymnasium, which has a full-sized court. It is expected t h a t the Gentry defense will be far less effective on the larger floor than it was in Springdale's small court.
