Warren, Long Hit Home Runs; McHan Is Leading Batter Arkansas' baseball team dropped both ends on an abbreviated twin bill Saturday with Oklahoma A. and M., 6-4 and 10-4. The games were played on the new Porker field, which was slow and muddy. Each contest was limited. to seven innings. The Hazorbacks oulh.t the Cowpokes in the first game but saw victory vanish in the third inning when Frank Fischcl, Arkansas center fielder, missed on an attempted shoe-stririg catch allowing t h e ball to roll into deep center for a triple. That hit helped the Aggies to a three-run inning. Two unearned runs in the 'ourth inning proved the winning margin. Ar- k-insas made Jive arrors. The Porkers collected eight hits to six for the winners in the initial contest, and two ot the Hogs connected for four-baggers. Earl Warren, Hog :ett fielder, poled e drive over the left field fence v/ith none on in the thirci and t h i r d baseman Francis Long smashed a drive over the left field fence in the sixth. Both blows came with the bases empty. Charles Brown started for Arkansas and was charged with the loss. Billy Blagg relieved him in the fifth and Edsel Ni* came on in Ihe seventh. Blagg and Nix blanked the Poas in the l a s t three frames. Marion Moss started for A. and M., giving way to John Sullivan in the fifth. Sullivan allowed two hits and one run and gained the victory. In Ihe second game the Aggies jumped on starter Walter Kearns for 10 solid hits, and eight runs in the first four innings to wrap up the game. Kearn- yielded t w o doubles and a single for two runs in the first frame and then saw · single, an error, a double Mid a triple account for Ihrce more in the secor.' 1 '-"ling. Nix took over In the f . -1 gave up two hits *nd tw;. in the last three frames. Jim Schlcsener worked the" first four innings for A. and M., giving up four hits and three runs. J. B. White took over on the mound In. the fifth and went the rest of the way to record the victory. Sthlesener'helped'his own cause with the day's longest hit, a line- drive home run to left centcrfielri Ir the fourth. Dale Roark, Poke shortstop .slammed a homer with one on base in the same inning. - Henry Walker, Aggie third sacker, was the. day's leading hiltsr, getting two for .three in the first game and three for four in the second tilt and driving in seven runs. Lamar McHan, Arkansas right fielder, led his learn at the plate with three for six including » triple in the 14 innings of play. The box scores: Okla. 'A. and M.

He hit homers off those three in the last three days, th* one oH Maglie yesterday traveling 480 feet over the centerfiela fence with two men on. Doby was supposed to hav* fallen off his game, too, and took a heavy pay cut for it. Now look: He leads the club at bat with .381, leads in runs batted in with 19, in runs scored with 19, and is working on a 12-game hitting streak.

Hogan 'fired a final 79 'for a 293 and tie for seventh. The wind, which w h i ri p e d across the cours* the *ntire tourney, was largely responsible for the high score.

I used to ac able to crowd a one-way street, When I st:ppcd\on the sealer, they didn't just weigh me. They said ·'ouch!" But I '.vas a walking porpoise on purpor,?. 1 enjoyed being Tat. When I lauRhtcd 1 had f.vice as much fun as a thin man, because there was so much ol me there ready and able In have a good time. All this is past. The suits I busted uut of yesterday now hang upon me in folds. Where I used lo bulge 1 now #ag and wrinkle. I ain't exactly the thin, man--but I'm on my way. Why did 1 give up the happy, self-satisfied, carefree life of a fat man to join the miserable millions o f ' d i e t i n g Americans? Well, to make a clean breast ot 1 it, there were two reasons. First, I was lonely--overwhelmingly lonely. All my friends were on a diet. All my enemies were on a diet. 1 began to feel I was the only fat man left in the world. I lad nothing lo talk about because here was nothing wrong with me just was stout and h ippy. They lon't allow that anymore. The second reason I went on diet is because of my life insurance company. I just hated to go in worrying them. And they were worrying all right. They began putting ads in the magazines and now is relaxing. Secretly, I guess the company is kind ol iroud of me. But I do miss the comfortable, solid, sedate feeling that fat gives a fellow. And I am just aboi'i*. as lonely ll ever. Beciuse all my friends and enemie^ want to talk abput is diets . . . diets . . . diets. And inybody who can go on talking about fish, lamb, and fresh vegetables is just plain hard up for conversation.
