to Morisse. The southpaw senior
slinger from Nordheim took the
mound for the fourth, fifth, and
) sixth [innings and pitched no-hit
ball, striking out five batters and
walking five.
Brown Shows Promise
After allowing a ringing double
to the lead-off man; in the first
inning, George Brown, a 24-year-
old veteran from Irving, settled
down to show the best control for
the day. The tall right-hander
didn’t yield /another hit during his
three inning stint.
ft.Was a brilliant pitching per
formance between medic mounds-
man Lowell Thomas and Brown
J ’and Morisse for three and a half
innings of play, but Cadet center-
fielder Hollis Baker started the
firewqrks in the bottom of the
fourth with a line-drive single to
left fiatdL
McPherson strode to the plate
and slapped the first pitch for a

while whiffing four during his
first two innings, but turned cold

The Hondo Hurler issued three
walks in succession before fan
ning > one, and automatically al
lowed two runs off two additional
free-passes before George Keith
batted in two markers with a sin

at third before Marshall Beseker
swept the bases, with a double.
Goodloe Ends Rally
Marty; Karow- then ushered Sid
Goodloe to the mound. Goodioe

lash action ... all set in a Texas oil town about fifty years ago.
When young Bass Chalmers returned to Watson. Texes, for
hi* mother's shot-aun funeral, he was plunged into-a black
faliblc ground stroke#.
Morton almost took advantage
of DeBerry’s weak service, but
the number-one Aggie from Sail
Angelo was at his peak with a
forcing brand of tennis. His two
chief weapons were a two-fisted
hackhargl and a sharp, timely at T
tack at the net.
