The squad of 20 men will .be divided In half for the contest which is open to the public. . .. The, spring practice period this year was devoted to scrimmage games between four teams on a . 'double-round robin basis. Several , 'players turned in outstanding per. 'lormances and higher scores than · have been the case in several years were the rule. . Raymond Shaw, 6-6 junior from 'Lafayette, La., emerged as the 'team's top scorer. The lanky center, who played behind Billy Hester at the start of last season, ·then dropped into the reserve spot -back, of Orval Elkins and .Walter Kearns following Hester's departure, hit a high of 33 points in tine game and notched totals of 23 and 20 points in other contests. ' A surprising .scorer was Floyd Sagely, who averaged around five . . points a game while seeing con- · siderable. duty last season. The · blond .Van Burcn 'graduate hit a high mark of 27 points in one ·game and has consistently be-n rear the 20-point level.

Currently sporting a 3-3 record, the Razorbacks leave on an extended nine-day trip through the Midwest the 'latter ptrt . of the month. They play the University of Omaha, Buena Vista College of Iowa, Bradley University and the University of Illinois. . p 'high one-game the scrimmages formed a formidable fast-break combination for thai outfit. Also racking up ' totals during t were Walter Kearns, Gene Lambert and Marvin Adams, with 26 each. . The "C" team came out of the round robin schedule with a top record of five won and one' lost, dropping their final 'game to the "D" quintet, which had « 3-3 irark. The .

Members of the 'B" team: Norm Smith, Joe Telford, Raymond Shaw, Joel Lucke and Gene Bradley. The "B" and "C" group will be the White team tonight. The Red Team members are: "A- 1 -- Gene Lambert, J. W. Walker, Jerry Smith, Carroll Scroggins and Leo McDonald; "D" -- Orval Elkins,' -Don ~ Walter Reams! Bill ' Johnson Gunn. The transition from formation of attack, careful shoot- i;'.g and lowt scoring has characterized Arkansas teams of the past few years, to a rapid shooting, fast-breaking style has been evident in spring drills.

Maybe the Cubs and Reds will find their level when the boys hit their stride. In the^meantime.they deserve the "much improved" libel. Surplus Dolnc Well The Brooklyn Dodger surplus, gleefully unfitted on the Cubs in the last few years, is doing a big share of the job. Paul Minner, Turk Lown, Bob Ramizzottl, Toby Atwell ind the rest. '·-' Minner threw a three-hitter at Pittsburgh last night for a 7-1 victory while the Cubs rak?d rookie Ronnie Kline ind three' successors. One of the hits off Minner was Jick Merson's 'second homer of the season. " . Bobby Thomson hit his first home run since his dramatic pennant-clincher in the'"1951 playoffs "as the New'York Giants walloped the Phillies, 10-4. Don Mueller also homered »nd added 'a triple and single to drive in four runs in the itlacx on Howie Fox and three other Phil pitchers.

Little Bobby Shantz gave only five hits, including Mickey Mantle's homer, but the boys didn't back him up. The A's left 10 on base and hit into four double plays in in afternoon of futility. Ferris ' Fain, league batting champ in '51, finally broke out of ' ' slump. After 21 hitless trips, he 1 singled in the second .to drive in the only Philadelphia run.

And who could blarte them? What name do you think headed the list of hitters? George Kell? Ted Williams? Larry Doby? Ferris Fain? No sir. None other than Gerry Coleman of the New York Yankees. Coleman, who swatted a robust .249 and placed exactly 104th last year, was lending the pack with a torrid ,Ii50 mark. And what name was on t h e bottom of the list of about 200 hitters? SoVne wild swinging pitcher? Or some nervous, rookie reserve infielder? Not at all. Last on the list was none other than last j year's batting king, Ferris Fain of the Philadelphia Athletics. Coleman, who never had hit ,300 in his big league career, had collected 10 hits in 18 times at bat. hitting safely in each of his first five games. Fain, who hit .344 in 1951, was batting exactly .000.
