Bobby Callaway worked eight innings for Texas, allowing nine scattered hits. Bobby Barnett won his fourth straight game as he let the Ags down with only three hits. Baylor By HAROLD V. RATLIFF Associated Press Sports Writer The Texas High School Coaches Assn, is considering a change in its proposed Hall of Fame plan. Even the name would be changed ■—it would be Hall of Honor and only coaches would be given awards. It was first anticipated that both athletes and coaches would come under the scope of the Hall and this seems to be the way it should be handled. In no other way could boys who attained their athletic glory only in high school be honored. The Texas Sports Hall of Fame as now conducted by the Texas Sports Writers is designed to award those who reached national glory and rightfully so. That was the reason some sports writers, notably Putt Powell of Amarillo, wanted a high school hall of fame because none of. the athletes and few of the coaches ever could gain the big Hall of Fame since their efforts were con cerned primarily at the state level. Should Be in Hall of Fame There are many coaches who should be voted into the Hall of Honor but there are many athletes who also should attain places. Consider Leo Baldwin, the great est all-around athlete Texas ever knew. He did such things as win the state track meet single-handed, score all the points for his team in a football season, star in bas ketball and play baseball so well that he received a league offer of $2,000. In those days this kind of money was considered quite a bonus. Baldwin never starred in col lege but his feats in high school should entitle him to a place in any Hall of Fame. Then there was Boody Johnson, Waco’s great football player of the twenties. He always will be considered the finest gridder in Texas high school annals. He broke his leg playing baseball and never could overcome the handicap of a trick knee in college athletics. Individuals Deserve Recognition Johnson won the state champion ship for Waco. He scored all the points, with a touchdown and con version and two field goals. The field goals, both by drop kicks, came in the final minutes to over come a 10-7 Abilene lead. Waco won 13-10. Johnson’s feats were legend. He often drop-kicked field goals 50 yards. He was a great runner, a great blocker and a fine defens ive player. Through the years other great high school athletes come to mind in thinking about the Hall of Fame. Amarillo’s Bob Clesson, Masonic. Home’s Scott McCall, Oak Cliff’s Roy Lumpkin, Sugar Land’s Kenneth Hall, Sherman’s Ralph Welch, Greenville’s Bert Marshall —the list is long and impressive. The High School Hall of Honor should include the athletes as well as the coaches. meanwhile was hammering 11, in cluding homers by Bob Turner and Art Fuentes. Winless Netters Try Rice Saturday Playing against the strongest teams in the Southwest, Coach Omar Smith’s Texas Aggies have yet to win a match and journey to Houston Saturday for a test with Rice’s defending conference champions. The Aggies have lost twice each to • Trinity and Lamar Tech and once each to Pan American and Texas. A&M has been shutout in every match except the home con test with Trinity when Robert Jones, Garland senior, won his sin gles competition. A&M opened conference play last Friday losing to the Texas Longhorns, 0-6. WASH and WEAR KNITS in State Farm Saved Texans Money We aim to insure careful drivers only.
