Red-White Game Ends Porker Cage Drills Game Marked By' Whites Win On Shot ' I n Last Seconds, 68-67 · By AJXAN GILBERT, )*: The Arkansas basketball team climaxed its spring practice schedule with the annual Red 7 Whlte intrastiuad game last night. And showing less interest, but having more thin any of the 500 spectators; -was newly appointed head coach Glen Rose. The White team emerged the winner on a long shot by J. W. "Shaky" Walker in the final seconds, 68-57. The Red team had time following Walker's basket to get the ball down court and take a shot, hut when it missed the game was over. Rose jockeyed the lineups in order to keep the score close throughout the game. Individual performances were brilliant in spots and the Porkers exhibited better shooting than in the last three years. The game was fast-paced with both t e a m s throwing caution to the winds in a,n effort to build up the points. Floyd Sagely, the six-foot footballer who will be a junior next year, showed the most improved game of the 19 players that took part In the game. The blond Van Burcnite opened the game with three straight baskets in as many tries, from the iS-toot maik and turned in a fine floor game and defensive performance. High scorer for the game was Raymond Shaw, who netted 18 points. Shaw, a junior next year, stands 6-6, and is a competent performer in the pivot. Coach Rose, however,' ' feels that he under a great handicap in playing against a man two to four..Inches taller. Shaw also showed some raggedness in hand- Browns Snap Indians 9 Win Streaky 8-3 -« Sakjh Indicted For Tax Evasion On Five Counts Sagely Soars To Score By JACK HAND AP Sports Writer You might say the St. Louis Browns "Byrne up" the Cleveland Indians.

In 1947, after his co-mirchase of several St. Louis buildings, he became a national figure w h e n ' h e became t part owner of the Cardinals. Then in 1941), he bought controlling interest in the ball club, reccing Hynnegan as president. Saitfh had been a member of a syndicate headed by HunncfiEill which purchased the club from Sam Brearlon. Hanncgan died in October of 1049. The indictment against Salgh Byrne got out his old lefthanded tomahawk. No record. No win streak. Almost no lead. Bymo's eight-hitter and 8-3 victory left the Brownies only a half game behind the front-running Tribe. It was enough to make a crowd of 15,119 sit through a drizzle. Mike Garcia, one of Al Lopez' "big four," was the loser. He couldn't keep the upstart Brownies under wraps. Neither could three other pitchers that Lope? dug 'out of the bull pen.

And' f ' s I he reiterated his desire for a tall pivot man to aid the fast break. The finish of last night's game was a whirl-wind affair. The Reds held a nine-point lead early in the final quarter, but the. Whites began, an assault using their top strength against the Red reserves stemmed from inaccurate Ing by. the out men. Next in line oh: the ; scoring was Orval Elklns, who made 15'points. Elkins pace'd a. furious White team rally .to the lajt quarjer. making eight crucial points- in the final four minutes. Probably the most consistent performers of the ' night were Gene .Lambert, Jr., who scored 11 points, and Tryon Lewis, who made five. Both boys played steady offensive and defensive games and were not subject to lapses that seemed to plague the balance of their teammates. Lambert rebounded well and j Lewis was. the key man in the Red offense exhibiting the team's finest ability to pass into the post. Lewis' assists, which rank almost on a par. -with points, were high for the night. · Coach Rose, as usual, was with- the Whites a 64-61 edge. Dale Lemon, who has been surprisingly good during spring j games, dropped one and then Gene Bradley, the former Van Buren all-stater, hit from the keyhole to put the Rede back in the lead with less than a minute remaining. Elkins came through on another one-hander for a White 66-65 lead. Then Norm Smith broke in for that steadily whittled down the! a lay-in that looked like it might lead.
