Fayetteville High Basketball Team Honored At Banquet The Fayetteville High School* basketball players in (he season Jurt past, received tribute last night at the annual basketball banquet, held in the dining room of-Root Gym. Superintendent Virgil T. Blossom was toastmaster; Dr. Walter Johnson gave the invocation;'special "guests were intro-, duccd by the toastmaster; Coach Glenn Slokenberry gave a resume of the season; football Coach Har~ ·ry Vandergriff, on leave from - Veterans Hospital where he is'a patient, introduced the squads. John "Red" Davis and Lewis * "Red" Johnson spoke. A pen set was presented to John SteVens, statistician for the season; ah(J Willis Hickdtts presented, on behalf -of the athletes' fans, cer- '· tlficates for suits to -Coaches - Stokenberry and Vandergriff. . Davis' address was in two parts. - ^be first full of humor, the second . in serious vein. In the second part .of .hfs talk he said: Dav's Is Speaker ' » "The character . of these boys must be o,f enduring' strength. It is apparent, both in athletics and life, that the Bulldogs play both fiames well.- And it is to the honor o f - t h e i r homes and school, that thus far they have moulded so rfitich. character in so short a time - . in life's journey. ·i"And all ( the light does not shine down on just these boys tonight. Literally hundreds of other Fayetteville boys-carry the same^torch of an enlightened life. It is ab- ;.Sqlutely necessary in any- com- mu'nity -to recoeuize the church .and'school as the foundation for t^e streaming cavalcade .nf youth to move upward, in society. And it is likewise the. civic duty of a'com- · munity to center all its efforts on youth..or else the world of tomorrow, will he darker than H i^ in thU. critical period. "So, you might say to yourself ' in an undertone, what does he know about boys w^'en he has never been married. But whether I kno\y anything or not there is one slogan, if adopted, where no man will ever lack for friends in . this or any other Boys' Town. - .-'Stay with the boys and they Will .stay'with you.' And that slogan does 1 not mean stay with the boys '. . in fie · Malamute saloon or some (Othr*: dive. rt Of course the argument that n bachelor knows nothing about boys is, a sad commentary on those who think they know and then d'b ; nothing about it. It is very positive, however, that there .can be no brotherhood in a boy if fatherhood and 'the. community loses N faith, hone and a charitable attitude in his behalf. "In this audience tonight .sit men vitally interested in the ·youth of this community. Some 'here at the head table .strive dili- V'gently to make better boys through ·;-f(tlyqush-these, ; ath!etie;-programs; '.''; ;'A'i mcii know how to make · · b o y s happy and this was vividly demonstrated by the .citizens of Fayetteville and Snringdale recently. And in all due respect to the Bulldogs, we.must admit our emotions and nockethooks arise to the occasion in victory, but somewhat falter when other hoys struggle likewise to reach the ton. "If our emotions must rise to the heights in victory then we should have the vision to see other boys struggling to win but unable to do so because the heart of a community beats too slowly in sympathy with the less fortunate. "If the community and church expect- to live in one society and forget-the other, tben the community and church walk in the opposite direction with God. We must give the same UPLIFT to the boy living outside tc realm of solenrior-as we do these worthy boys basking in the light of ath- let'c glory." ^ Talks' Tn Champs Johnson spoke on "Talking (o Chamns." and told the group of players that "the game is not over for you: You. have been champs and you will be expected to continue champs." He said the team '·' thiSi past scison had good leader- · ·ship, teamplay, knew how to stay ' ; in the rame- under pressure, and ..the"team members were., good, (·'car thinkers. There is a big need ./or champions to take the leader- shin of the community, the slate and the nation, he said, adding, "this you can't get f mm has-beens, Inn-Till Venetian Blind- Aluminum and toucknii Awning* .

Laenfl St. John's, Kansas Forge Way Into NCAA Finals Seattle-Wlt will be .Lovellette*' and company of Kansas afalnit' the giant killers of St. John's for the national collegiate basketball crown tonight. .Kansas got to the throne room doorway the easy way in the semifinals of the NCAA playoffs last night, as big Clyde Lovellette led the. way to a 74-55 victory over 3nnia Clara. St. John's of Brooklyn got there by the margin of a game-ending gasp, with a 61-59 win over ia- vorcd Illinois. In the title classic tonight it will be the clever passing game of St. John's against' the power that comes from having a tower of strength like 6-foot-O Lovellette in the slot. The big Kansas center scored 33 points against the Santa Clara Broncos, and he stood out as a playmaker and backboard bulwark as well as a scorer. His 33 ran his three-game NCAA ,1952 playoffs total to'108 to set a new record. The old mark, in four, games, was 83. 'It was set by Don Suriderlage of Illinois last year. · -The crystal ball gazers wdnt to' look into the past competition between the two finalists for -a weather vane reading, the edge is with Kansas. It won a 52-51 victory over St. John's when they met last year in Madison Square Garden. But these St. John's hoop magicians have thrown the book out the window. The experts didn't even think they would get to the national tourney. They did it the hard way, in the regional tourney, by beating Kentucky, No. 1 team in the -Associated Press national poll. .Illinois, the Redmen's victim last night, was the No. 2 rated team in the same" poll.. One goal was clinched by both St. John's and Kansas by their semi-final victories. · Both qualified for the U, S. Olympic Games trials. While Lovellette stood out as tire N'o. 1 individual performed in the semi-finals, St. John's flashed a star of its own who may give the Kansas center a run for his money tonight He was center Bob Zawol- uk, a mere 6-foot 6-incher. He tallied 24 points .for St. John's, was a strong man at the backboards and his nine field goals were within three of Lovellette's total. . Kentucky Derby To Be Telecast For First Time Louisville, Ky. -OT- America's annual big racing thrill, the Kentucky Derby, will be flashed, by television cameras to receiving sets across the country for the first time in history May 3. Churchill Downs announced its decision to permit a live telecast last night and promptly claimed the show will command the largest TV audience ever to view an on-the-spot event in sports or otherwise. President Bill Corum of the Downs emphasized, however, that this year's telecast will be strictly experimental. "We are going to study the effect on crowd, betting, and such before committing ourselves to future contracts," he said. The TV agreement was reached with Columbia 'Broadcasting System. Corum declined to divulge the terms other than to say it involves a "substantial rum." Last year's Derby went out on the television cables on films several hours after the race. The only previous live telecast vas by a Louisville station in 1949.

He told tile players to recall all the 1 practice they took part in Just to play and win one game, and reminded them they would need milch studying and training for playing the game of life. Leader- shin calls for practice, he declared, and said this leadership means going to school, studying a little harder. He said teamwork in churches, clubs and the community also is needed, and that the athletes have had good training in this. "Don't quit just because you are champs in athletics," he said.

(NEA) Davey To Get Big Test In Williams Bout Chicago-(fl)-Some boxing critics think Chuck Davcy is too much of a polite pugilist and will have to shake off the nice guy act tonight if he hopes' to defeat battle- scarred Ike Williams.

Roe said after the game: · "I figure I'm just about throw- Ing the way I should be at this time. My stuff is spotty sbme of it · good, some of it bad. I "My control isn't what it should be yet. It was better than last lime at least. I'm getting the ball over the plate, but I'm not getting it where I want it." Roe yielded all of Philadelphia's' runs including » two-run homer by Eddie Joost. He left with a 6-5 lead. Young Billy Loes pro r I tected the margin.
