The young Aggies had 4-1 sea son and 2-0 conference records when they hosted Baylor in the first game following the semester break and were beaten 81-67. They lost their following game to Rice before righting themselves and winning their last two, with the last one over Rice. THE RICE win gives the Fish a 6-3 record for the season with [ a 4-2 conference mark. Baylor’s freshmen were beaten Tuesday night by the Texas Year lings, a team the Fish whipped twice, 73-66 in Austin. Tom Friedman, a 6-4 forward from Paris, and Bob Griffiths, a 6-1 guard from New Jersey, are the key to Baylor’s offense. They had 21 and 20 points respectively in their first game with A&M >r el«. K.

THE BIG three of the Fish con tinue to be Bill Cooksey, Chuck Smith and Steve Niles with key contributions coming from the likes of Roddy McAlpine, Danny Berry and Tommy Bain. Cooksey, a 6-2 guard from Houston Sam Houston, is the team’s main outside threat with a 20.6 scoring norm. He has con nected on 80 of 175 shots for 45.7 per cent, a remarkable mark for an outside shooter. On the other hand Smith uses fine moves to get most of his 19.9 points a game under the basket. This is reflected in his fantastic 64 per cent accuracy from the floor on 62 of 97. He is also the squad’s second leading rebounder with a 10.7 norm. NILES, the biggest Aggie bas- ketballer at 6-11, is the team’s number one rebounder and third top scorer. He is averaging 13.3 points and 13.1 rebounds a com test. McAlpine, who played with Niles and Fish basketballer Andy Harris on San Antonio Lee’s AAA A state schoolboy champions last season, is scoring at a 9.8 clip. Berry had his finest game of the year Tuesday as he bombed Rice from outside in a 17 point performance which raised his av erage 7.1. As a team the Fish are scoring at an 80.1 clip while holding op ponents to 74.9. They have hit at a 46.7 per cent from the field and 68 per cent from the foul line while keeping opponents to a 41 mark from the floor and 67.2 from the line. REBOUNDING has been one of the reason’s for the Fish rec ord as they average 50 a contest while 43.1 goes to other team. The Fish play their final home game Tuesday against Tyler Ju nior College and close out the sea son in Fort Worth February 24 against Texas Christian Univer sity. Player G FG-FGA Pet. FT-FT A Pet.

QUEEN NOW SHOWING Liz Taylor & Richard Burton In “THE COMEDIANS” Spring Sports Balanced Ag Swim Team To Host Raiders Feb. 23 By MIKE WRIGHT A balanced group of swimmers comprise this year’s water squad. “We have a good bunch of boys who are about equal in their speed,” commented swimming coach Art Adamson. The varsity team has competed twice and holds a 1-1 record. They were beaten by the Univer sity of Texas at Arlington and they were victorious over the Rice Owls. “A SWIMMING meet is com prised of thirteen events — nine individual events, two d i v in g events, and two relays. Points are awarded on first, sceond, and third places, in the individual and diving events, and for first place in relays,” explained Adamson. The Aggies next meet is at home against the Texas Tech swimmers February 23, at 7:30 p.m. February 24, East New Mex ico University comes to Downs Natatorium for a 2:30 p.m. meet. COMPETING for the Aggies in the free-style are Thomas Hold en, Henry Paup, John Beall, and John Greenhut. “Tom Sparks, Bill Dunn, and Michael O’Brien make up the trio for the backstroke. Jerry Deutsch, Larry Linn, and Bob Mathews will enter the breaststroke in our meets,” said Adamson. The divers will be Eddie Grant, Ronnie Suttle, Larry Jones, and Paul Hudson. Steve Ash is slated to duel in the distance free style. “THE MEET will be held at Arkansas this year. Overall the conference is stronger, with Southern Methodist University still being the team to beat. How ever, now that the freshmen are able to compete, it could change some things. Arkansas had some tremendous freshman swimmers and if they come through, it could be rough for SMU,” Adamson pointed out. Matson Preparing For Mexico City “For those who slept late New Year’s Day, that’s the Texas Ag gies’ score over Alabama in the Cotton Bowl,” noted Joe Buser, club president who said the buf fet dinner meeting will begin at 7 p.m. The social hour starts at 6 p.m. Jack Hurlbut, assistant coach on Gene Stallings’ A&M football staff, will show the Cotton Bowl color film and discuss this year's recruiting. Club secretary Bob Roepke said a $50 check will be given to the person turning in the most new memberships by 7 p.im. Wednes day. The Brazos Aggies have set a goal of 300 members for 1968. “Even if you don’t need $50, bring in a few members for good bull,” Roepke suggested. Membership dues of $5 per per son support the club’s scholarship program. RANDY MATSON Scoreboard a-|C ssmaggnsj an < ,'.dtonN u*«Ptwi; rt abs fRfi TONIGHT AT 6 :30 P. M.

J. 112, Vermont 76 Cincinnati 73, North Texas St. 61 By GARY SHERER The 10th Winter Olympics are almost over and next the eyes of the world will focus on Mexico City, where the 1968 Summer Olympics will take place. For the next seven months, many American hopefuls will train and compete for spots on the United States team. This area will have definite in terest in these games, not only for proximity, but also for a 6-6, 260-pound shotputter named James Randel Matson. The recent winner of 1967’s Sullivan Award, symbol of the nation’s top amateur, placed first (65-8) in the Fort Worth Indoor Meet on Feb. 3. He passed up last weekend’s Los Angeles In door Meet because of a bout with the flu bug. He will make a trip to Los An geles next week to officially ac cept the Sullivan Award. The Pampa weightman will not compete in any competition for the next two months. “I plan to woik with the weights for awhile,” Matson said. He noted he won’t do any work with the shotput but concentrate primarily on his weight program. Probably the next top competi tion for Matson will be the AAU championships in June. After those come the Olympic Trials. These meets plus the weight pro gram will properly prepare Mat- son for the October games. The coveted gold medal escaped Matson in 1964 in Tokyo. This distinction is just about the only award the senior marketing ma jor hasn’t won yet. Matson hopes that 1968 will see that accom plishment achieved. On The Recruiting Front LUBBOCK, Tex.
