U.'s hoop, t h a t is, 5748.. The' Hogs started out hot and were still ballling for the lead at the end of three quarlers. But the final' 10 minules 'found the Ponies spurting to a.quick lead thai enabled ihem lo slall out Ihe victory--Arkansas' -13th loss in 22 games. v / A n d the Porkers could look forward lo a gloomy prosperl for victory tonight as they prepared to meet the league-leading T. C. U. Horned'Frogs, al Fort Worth. The Frogs have only losl three games this 'season, and one «« to Arkansas. They will be primed to avenge that set-back. Tom "Whiley" Holm,.inly a 6-3 center, sparked the Mustangs lo Iheir 'win over the Hoas. Normally a .feeder ralher than a scorer from his post-position, Holm found he. could get himself open and scored on eight field goals and two free throws for 18 points to top both teams. The Porkers led by nine-points at one stage ol the game and were on top 19-12 al the end of the first quarter. The-Ponies went into a stall early in the .ast quarter, holding Arkansas to but three points in.the period, while picking u,i several easy baskets on the way. .

The tournament is due to last throughout the week with the final tilt slated for Saturday. Glnce District One is divided into two parts only the winner vi each half qualifies lor the stale tournament. Therefore the final game of the tournament . assumes added importance. Where there is only one tourney in the district the! both finalists become eligible for still* tournament competition. The winner of the Greenland affair is matched against the runner-up in District Four, which will probably be eitlier Hartman, Coal Hill, Norman, County Line, Plainview-Iiover, or Belleville. The state Class B. tourney will be held at Prescotl, March S-8. Tonight's games see two of the stronger teams in action. Prairie Grove, which ranks along with Elkins, Mulberry and Gentry, as a leading contender, plays the opener against St. Paul, at 6:30 p. m. Mountainburg meets Deca- lur In the second game, at 7:45, and West Fork, with a dark-horse rating, tangles will) Cedarvllle, whose relative strength is unknown. The winner; of the first two games meet Wednesday in a quarter-final t i l l . Tomorrow night's contests include: Winslow vs. Gentry, 6:30; Farmington vs. S u l p h u r Springs, at 7:45; nnd Elkins vs. Lincoln, at .9 o'clock. All tournament games are at night. Gentry r.iiiks as a slight favorite over the Washington County duo o f ' E l k i n s nnd Prairie Ornve and the Crawford County quintet of Mulberry. Mulberry is the tournament 1 ,t number one dark-horse due to fact that so little Is known of the team beyond the fact ( h a t It has had a good season record. Gentry's high ranking is based at I on its t r t u m p n In the recent SprinRdalc Invitational Basketball Tournament, a n ' a f f a i r that included most of the Class B teams in this area.

"A lot depends on our young pitchers," he said. "You know about Vinegar Bend Mizell. Everybody raved about him last spring, ff he doesn't go into service, he ought to help us. "We're hoping Joe Presko and Cloyd Boyer have shaken off their arm trouble to take a regular turn with Gerry Staley and Cliff Chambers. "The way l.look at it, we didn't have Billy Johnson nnd Wally Westlake at the start last season. Still I thought we did pretty good finishing third." Musial is confident E d d i e Slanky, his new manager, will ielp the club not only as manager jut player. "I imagine Eddie will be play- ng," he said. "All that talk about where Red Schoendienst will play ias'been good for the fans. Keeps hem talking about the Cardinals. 3ut those problems that seem so )ig have a way of working.them- selves out." Musial prefers Ihe outfield to first base but will play any place Stanky tells him. ·" Musial thinks Brooklyn will be hurt badly by the loss of Don Newcombe. He also h a s . an idea they may be haunted by that ninth inning of the final playoff game with the New York Giants. He rates the Giants rough with their fine pitching slaff but definitely hurt by losing Stanky. "If the Phillies get t h a t Curt Simmons back," he said. "They can be real tough. I don't think 1 ever saw a pitcher with more stuff than Simmons." How about Musial? figure I have at least five good productive years ahead." February Sports Card Feb. 15 -- Ratorbacks v».
