Tuesday, February 20, 1951 THE BATTALION Page 3 Fish Cagers Bow Before Allen, 40-59 Staging a repeat performance of Saturday nights contest with the Texas University Shorthorns, A & M’s freshman basketeers again dropped a decision by li) points, bowing to Allen Academy 40 - 59. Disorganization and confusion apparently dominated the Fish as they were unable to organize an effective machine of team-play , throughout the entire contest. Allen’s de Zavala opened the game with a quick crip shot, which lit the fuse to a skyrocket of seor- " ing to follow. Last Day to Sign For Tennis Show Today is the final day that students may sign up for the trip to Houston to witness the Professional tennis matches. Those students desiring to make the trip should report to the Student Activities Office and sign up. The cost of the trip will be $2.50 including their ticket to the matches. The trip will be made by bus and private car. Jack Kramer, Pauline Betz, Pancho Segura and Gussie Mor in are among the galaxy of stars who will appear in the exhibi tion. The next 20 minutes found Allen ripping holes in the weak fish de fense which grew constantly thin ner as half time drew near. The first year Aggies also found dif ficulty in penetrating Allen’s close man to man defense which kept them in the outer court and uncer tain scoring range. Rally to Late Signs of recovery for the Fish did not appear until mid-wayt through the second half, when their two main assets, Ron Dwyer and James Addison, suddenly came to life. Addison, working the inner court, and Dwyer, patroling the outer area, began urging the Ag gie score upward. But the effort had come too late and proved too feeble to compare with the rapid pace at which Allen was filling the bucket. v de Zavala Outstanding Without doubt the most out standing player of the evening was Allen’s 6’ 5” center, de Zavala. His easy, purposeful movements on the court were good for 21 points, while he collected on three fouls during the entirety of t h e game. Possessing a variety of shots, including a highly accurate hook, de Zavala is sure to be a highly sought after ball player upon his graduation from the acad emy. High point man for the Aggies was Dwyer with 14, followed by Addison with 19. Most Vicious Foul Baylor Players Brutal, Claims Arkansas Coach Austin, Feb. 20—UP) Arkansas basketball coach Presley Askew said yesterday Baylor players com mitted one of the “most vicious and brutal fouls” he had ever seen Sat urday night. D. L. Miller, Arkansas guard, was so badly hurt he probably will be unable to play the last three games of the season. “It’s very fortunate the boy (Mil ler) wasn’t seriously maimed. Three Baylor players hit him as he drove in for a crip. One hit him from each side and one from the back and drove him to the floor,” said Askew. Vicious “It was one of the most vicious and brutal fouls I’ve seen in eight- ren years of basketball coach- ing.” He said Miller made the game )* ifwiM m caiJkng. on BRAINPOWER Known the world over for its ability to design and manu facture fine aircraft, Douglas also pioneers in other fields. An example is the Analog Digital Converter shown below. This device converts variable mechanical positions into unambiguous electricaly contact settings. As it continues to advance in the field of aeronautics and related sciences, Douglas offers unlimited opportunities to men of high calibre and university training. Many such men have found this a good place to work. Douglas is always interested in men trained as aeronauti cal, mechanical, electrical and civil engineers...physicists... and mathematicians. DOUGLAS AIRCRAFT . COMPANY, INC. SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA ffffm clinching field goal as he was fouled but was unable to shoot two free throws awarded by offi cials. “You can see how bad he was fouled by the fact he got two free throws even though he made the goal. His substitute, Bob Williams, had to take the free throws for him,” Askew said. The Arkansas coach said the foul was “very unnecessary. It leaves me feeling very bitter.” Henderson Answers In Waco, Coach Bill Henderson of Baylor said “from where I was sitting I had a different view of that foul against Arkansas. My boys had no intent to be malicous or brutal but were simply trying to break up the basket. I’m sorry about the incident and it is unfor tunate. My boys are not nearly so rough as some teams.” Tiger Cagers f inish 2nd With Thorndale Win A & M Consolidated High School’s Tiger quintet wound up their 1951 cage campaign in District 68B Friday night with a thrilling 35-33 win over Thorndale. Leading the attack for the Tiger five was Billy Blakely, who paced his teammates with 10 points, followed by Bobby Jackson with nine counters. Don Rieger of Thorndale netted 13 points for scoring honors. In 13 district contests, the Tigers took 10 and dropped three to fin ish second behind the District champs, Milano. Tiger Cage Mentor Othel Cha- fin was well pleased with the out come of the basketball season, as the Consolidated quintet dropped their first five tilts. Bobby Williams was the only lettei;man on the Tiger five that showed a season record of 14 wins and 12 defeats. Poor weather con ditions forced cancellation of one of the district bouts. Blakely tallied 245 points in sea son play for high point honors, followed by letterman Williams, who garnered 198. Williams missed the last two contests. Jerry Jackson ranked third in the Tiger scoring circle with 147 and Joe Motheral ranked third in the Tiger scoring circle with 147 and Joe Motheral was the number 4 man with 106.

Aggie Cagers Host To Mustangs Tonight at 8 By RALPH GORMAN Batt Sports Editor A&M’s cage team puts its first place tie on the line tonight in DeWare Field House when they play host to Southern Methodist’s hot-and-cold Mustangs in a round- ball battle that should prove influ'- encing to the SWC cage campaign. Coach John Floyd’s Cadets pres ently enjoy a tie for the conference lead that has been narrowed to only TCU’s Horned Frogs after the Longhorns were knocked from their precarious perch last night by the “new” Arkansas' ouintet, 40 to 38. Hogs, Longhorns Tied The Razorback win at the ex pense of TU put both of these teams in a tie for second place in the Southwest’s wildest basketball race. As the Aggies meet SMU to night, Coach Buster Brannon’s Christians tangle with Coach Bill Henderson’s “vicious and brutal” Bruins in Fort Worth’s Will Rogers Coliseum. Revenge for the 51-44 drubbing earlier in the season will be on the minds of the Cadets when they go onto the floor tonight against US THE GRILL for Real Taste TREATS + Home Made Chili • Delicious Malts • Bar-B-Q Sandwiches . • Friendly Service B <& B GRILL NORTH GATE Doc Hayes’ Mustang' cagers. Floyd says that “the boys are in a good frame of mind for tonight’s contest” and philosophically sums it up for the pre-game dopeaters by saying that “we’ll win if we play ball, but if we don’t play ball, we’ll lose.” Starting at the center post for the Cadets will be the 6’8” Buddy Davis, who leads A&M’s scoring list with 248 markers. At the for ward positions will be 6’4” Marvin Martin, and John DeWitt, at 6’5”. All-confex*ence guard Jewell Mc Dowell will handle the chores at one guard slot, while Woody Walk er works from the other. Halt Scoring Threats The big job for the defending cagers will be in halting the Mus tang scoring threats of Whitey Holm, Fred Freeman, and Jack Brown. At present Brown, 6’2 U forward, is fourth in season scor ing with 274 points and will be remembered by the 12 point total he amassed in the first meeting of these two teams. McDowell will have the task of halting the Pony scoring ace, while Freeman should find a for midable problem in working out from under the swift feet and watchful eye of Walker. Holm falls under the heading of DeWitt material and should be covered well if previous ability of the Waco lad is any indication. The Cadets will field the advan tage of not having lost on their home court in the current season, while the Ponies show but one victory (Baylor) in their road campaign. —Beat SMU— COFFEE CUM MUDE / . right thfc minute...roaster fresh!
