The expense money w«j raised through contributions from over 20,0 fans of this area.

Snow, Sleet Greet Bulldogs In Kansas City; But Party Having Wonderful Time "It's cold in Kansas City," was the report this morning from the Faycltevillft High School hasket- , ball team. The Bulldogs are in Kansas City attending the NCAA regional basketball tournament as guests of the fans of this area. Max Powers, manager of the, told this story to the pMES this morning by telephone: · "We. ran into snnw yesterday just outside of Kansas City and when w: arrived in town there was a heavy hail storm. The temperature outside now is around 20 degrees. "Red Davis asked me to call you for him. Ke said he promised to call, hut he has a bad cold and can .iust barely talk. "We got here yesterday at about 12:30 and after, getting into the hotel, we went out and looked around the town. Some of the boys bought some clothes and we all looked in Ihe stores. "Ray Bob (Barnes) and Bass (Trumbo) were a little bit angry over the weather. They brought tcir golf clubs with tV-em""and had planned on playing yesterday and today. But the cold and snow and hail have ruined those plans. Ray Bob sa.vs he doesn't like 'the snow, sleet and hail, 1 bui added that the trip is a wonderful experience anyway. "Bass commented a few minutes ago that: 'The weather's sure cold --but I'm really h a v i n g a time.' "Coach Stokcnbcrry said that both the games -last night were . very interesting. Wo saw St. Louis beat New Mexico A. and M. and Kansas beat. T.C.U. Coach said he was interested in the way St. Louis and New Mexico opened the game with zone defenses with St. Louis changing to a man-to-man in the second half. The difference In that game was the way the Billikins hit the basket. "In the other T.C.U. made a great game of it all the way, even though under a terrific handicap the last three quarters. The T.C.U. center, George McLeod, fouled out in the first quarter and that left Lovellcttc pretty well unguarded. He made 31 points and Is quite a ball player. Most of us agreed that he's as good as Trumbo.

Only Five Horses Head For Post In Oaklawn Feature Hot Springs, Ark-(*)-Only llv'f horses have been named for to. day's Oaklawn. Handicap, trie last df the weekend major ztske events preceding the reriewnl March 29 of the $10,000 added Arkansas eerby. Although the $5,000 Oakltwn Is open to three-year-olds, not a single stable chose to select a sophomore representative tor the test which ahs frequently served in the past as a trial ior the closing day feature. , . Heading the small but formidable field named for the mile and a sixteenth feature is Mrs. Emil Dencmark's Ruhe, seeking to atone for the defeat by Our Kite in the King Cotton. The 195' Arkansas Derby winner has been assigned top impost of 117 pounds and was to be ridden by oohnny Heckmann. Opposing the Denmark star were to be Mrs. Ethel Kendall Wlel's Glorietia, Bernard W. Landy's Spur On, Raymond Wilkinsn's Fleet Factor and Mrs. Nellie M. Mikel's False. Of these Fleet Factor, who failed badly in his bid to repeat In the Southland last Saturday, ivas asked to carry the second heaviest burden of 112 pounds, alse, a handicap winner at at New Orleans, who made a poo* .showing in the King Cotton, '.ias been assigned 111 pounds. Spur On a previous winner here against a less capable field, was to carry 110 pounds, and Flpriette, a four-year-old filly, was entered lightest at 103. R. A.

He win held for the Stirey County officers, ta Ike TIMES--It NT* Title Fiht In Making Between Turner, Gavilan New York-W)-A July title fight between undefeated 21-year-old Gil Turner and ' Welterweight Champion Kid Gavilan was in the. making today following the Philadelphia sensation's seven round technical knockout of Don William* last night. Young Gil, a ball of fire all the way in his Madison Square Garden triumph, said, "I'm ready for Gavilan. Bring him on." . M.atchmaker Al Weill, of the International Boxing Club, said he Would do what he could about making the title fight. Against Williams, who lost by a bare shade to Gavilan in Boston last month, Turner wasted no time. He started throwing.leather from'the opening Bell and hardly, stopped for a moment. In the seventh round of the scheduled 10. he belted the slender Worcester, Mass., choir singer with 110 punches by boxing writers' count. At the end of the seventh referee Ray Miller (jailed in Dr. Vincent Nardiello for a consultation and then the official stopped the bout. It was listed as a seventh round TKO under New York rules. For Turner, who weighed 147 to Williams' 146 it was his 30th consecutive victory in less than two years of pro fighting. He has scored 23 knockouts. Gil was » 17 to 5 favorite and he looked it. He threw every punch in the book at Williams and was only slightly bothered in the fourth and sixth rounds when lanky Don stabbed him off balance at times with a left jab. . '_ Kilrore Upiet San Francisco-(/P)-Miss Masako Katsura, Japan, upset-Ray'.Kll- gore, 50-46 ;n 61 innings in World Three Cushion Billiard Tournament. . Peoria, Phillips Oilers Reach A All Finals Wynn Leads Cleveland Past Chisox; Cardinals Nip Reds Tribe Expected To Challenge Yanks For Flag Pitching Staff Rated Best In American League Los AngeIes-(P)-The Cleveland Indians, if you care tor the advice of most of the major league experts, will constitute a definite chtllenge to the pennant defending New York Yankees. - Quite a few, without hesitation, pick th= Indians outright to f i n - ish first in front of the pack in the American League scramble, 'a position they failed to reach by five games In 1951. It lakes a bit of arm twisting, but Al Lopez, starting his second season as the chief of the tribe, eventually will admit that the I n - dians "could" win out this time. Certainly the Tribe is blessed with pitching-- three 20-Jame winners and one jnpre who can return to the charmed group. I3y name, they are Bob Feller, 22-8, Early Winn, 20-'3, M i k e Garcia, 20-13, and Bob Lemon, 17-14. Add to these such men as Steve Gromek, who rtarted or finished for a score of 16 wins, and possibly one or two more from the newcomer ranks. The key man in the hitting department is the giant I.uke Easter. Severely handicapped by a lanie l e f t knee, the 6-fcet 4, 230-pound Luke managed to · drive In 10,'t runs despite a comparatively - low '.-atllng average of .270. Easter's knee, operated on last fall, thus far 'seems men'led. He has looked sound of lirnb and agile afoot around first base. His con-. tinued good health me: ns much to the club and its success. Bobby Avila, the second baseman, led the club with a rousing ,305. Can he match it this year? · Third baseman Al Rosen's .265 was below anticipation. f3ut it should be pointed out that he knocked in 102 runs, and that he and Luke wer? the only guys in the league to account for 100 or more RBi's. The surprise comeback In the (lugging division migni '.veil .Ud outfielder Larry Dohy, He hit .205 and might barge back well, past the .300 mark". He did it the year fo.'e with a lusty fence rattling 2S Doby, Dale Mitchell (.290) and Bob Kennedy (.245) are the outfield regulars. But a pair of youngsters might alter the picture a bit. They ore Harry Simpson and rookie Jim Fridley, a robust ex- football player from West Virginia, who starred for Dallas and hit .299 against Texas League pitching last year. Defensively, with Easter, Avila, Rosen and shortstop Ike Boone, the Tribe seems sound enough. Kramer Tops Kovacs Philadelphia-(/P)-Jack Kramer beat Frank Kovacs, 7-5, 6-0, as Inquirer Masters Tennis Tourney opened. Reed Leads At Gulf Coast Gulfport, Miss.-(A')-Elmer Reed of Atlanta, Ga., took a second round lead in he Gulf Coast Invitational Tournament. · Early Wynn, who could have sued the Cleveland Indians for "rionsupport" last year, appears headed for another banner season. Wynn has looked as sharp as ever this spring nnd with some batting support figures to Improve on his 20-13 record of 1951. The 32-year-old righthander was Cleveland'. 1 : most effective pitcher down the stretch in 1051. He won nine games and lost only two during the final two months of the season. Weak hitting prevented him from posting a better record. In 12 of his 13 d c f r n t s the Indians were limited to three runs or less. Wynn turned In another fine performance yertmlay as the Indians defeated the Chicago White Sox, 6-4, at Los Angeles. Wynn pitched the first five innings and didn't permit n hit until the fourth. The Indians enjoyed a 5-0 lead going into the fourth when Wvnn eased up a bit and Eddie.Robin- son tagged him for a thftc-run homer, ' Rookies Fi-ed Hnhn and Ralph Benrd nlso came up with some excellent pitching as the St. Louis Cardinals downed the Cincinnati Reds, 2-0, at St. Petersburg, Fla. Hahn checked the Reds on four hits in six Innings and Beard allowed only one over the f i n a l three. The Chicago Cubs .won a 3-2 squeaker from the Pittsburgh Pirates at San Bernardino, Calif. Roy Smalley tripled home the winning run in the ninth inning. Ralph Kiner accounted for both Pittsburgh runs by clouting his first homer of the soring, a belt off Warren Hacker In the sixth. The. Cubs' ''B" squad trounced Los Angeles. 8-4, at Fullerton. Calif. Sam Jethroe. Boston's .speedy outfielder, was slightly injure'] as the Braves outlasts:! the Phila- dclohla Phillies, 13-11, at Clear- wnter. Fin. Jethror suffered a sbralned left wrist as he crashed into the fence in n hirl to catch a drive by rookie Mel Clark of the Phils. The Braves' American League rivals, the Hod Sox, came from behind to heat the Philadelphia Athletics, 5-3, ,it West Palm Beach, Fla. .The Detroit Tigers also came Denver-(/P)-Peorla'« Caterpillars, in the finals for the first time, battle the perennial tltlehotden from Bartlesville, Okln., In tonight's, championship game of the National Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) Basketball Tournament. They breezed by their leml-final opponents last night with easy victories. The Bartleuvllie Phillip* 66er», with seven foot Bob Kur- I n n d a t the controls, outclassed the hustling U. S. Air Force All-Stars 06-19. The Illinois Caterpillars solved the deliberate ball control name of Hollywood's Fibber McGee and Molly team 4fi-34. Hollywood sidelined defending champion San Francisco Stewart Chevrolets in Thursday's qu»rt»r- f l n a l round 43-41.

The Air Force club stayed even with the towering Phillips learn u n t i l Knrland, Bus Whitoheari and Paul Courty flipped In eitht straight points to send the Oklahomans In front to stay 28-30 with 3 minutes 28 seconds remaining In the first half. Kurland and most of the other Phillips starters retired to the bench after building ai 52-37 lead at the enrt of the third quarter, from behind to win, beating the New York Yanke**, 3-1, at Lakeland, Fla.
