Fish Edge Tyler 73-71 In OT
By JOHN PLATZER
With only nine seconds left in
overtime. Bill Cooksey nursed in
a 22 foot jump shot to bring the
Tyler Apaches, number three
ranked junior college team in the
nation, down to earth 73-71 last
night in G. .Rollie White.
COOKSEY had a chance to end
the game in regulation time but
his last second shot rolled around
the rim and then out.
Tyler, which was 27-1 on the
year and riding the crest of a 26
game win streak, played the game
without the services of 6-3 fresh
man guard James “Poo” Welch
who is fighting the flu. Welch is
averaging 20 points a game and
has been considered one of the
leaders of the team.
The Texas A&M Huddle chap
ter of the Fellowship of Christian
Athletes held new elections re
cently at the A&M All Faiths
Elected to lead the chapter was
the Student Senate president,
footballer Jerry Campbell. Four
vice presidents, representing four
different sports were elected.
They were: David George, swim
ming; Edd Hargett, football; John
Heffner, track; and Ozzie Burke,
Other positions in the chapter
are: Jack Whitmore, secretary;
Chris Conley, publicity chairman;
and Jim Kazmierski, song leader.
The Huddle will be provided
added leadership froan Professor
Arthur Smith as pastor leader
and Barney Welch, layman leader.
San Jacinto Junior College,
rated number one in the nation
in their class, provided Tyler with
their only other defeat. That loss
was later made up when the
Apaches beat San Jacinto in
COACH Jim Culpepper’s Fish
won the game with balanced scor
ing as they placed four men in
double figures. Cooksey and
Chuck Smith led with 18 apiece
followed by Roddy McAlpine with
13 and Danny Berry with 12.
Smith continued his hot shoot
ing from the field, he had en
tered the game hitting at 63.6 per
cent, connecting on 8 of 13 for the
JIM BROOKS, the big 6-8 cen
ter who is one of only 10 junior
college players in the nation to
be invited to the Olympic try
outs, rammed home 38 points, 29
of them in the second half, to pace
Tyler’s offense. Bill Chatman
contributed 13 and Jess Marshall
had 11 for the Apaches.
Cooksey scored 14 of his points
in the first half as the Fish
threatened to make a runaway of
the game but then had to hold on
as Tyler came roaring back.
A jumper by Cooksey gave
A&M a 2-0 opening lead which
they constantly built upon in the
contest’s first 20 minutes.
THEY knocked seven points off
their deficit in the first three
minutes of the second half and
whittled the margin down to 53-
48 with 8:23 remaining.
Tyler came within two for the
first time since early in the con
test at 54-52 with 6:47 left but
the Fish then quickly surged back
to a five point advantage.
The 20 foot jumpers by Harvey
Huffstetler knotted the game for
the first time at 62-62 with 1:34
left and that’s how the score read
at the end of regulation time.
Steve Niles once again paced
the Aggies in rebounding with
12 while Cooksey followed with
THE LEAD was stretched to
14 points at 30-16 with 3:35 left
in the half and then to 35-18 with
2:25 remaining. The half ended
with the Fish on top 37-20.
Tyler played the first half like
anything but the team they are
rated to be as none of their play
ers could find the range. They
connected on 8 of 41 floor shots
in the half for a horrid 19.5 per
cent while the Fish hit on 17 of
37 for 45.9 per cent.
The Fish also out rebounded
the Apaches in the half by a 32-23
The second half was a complete
turn around of the first as Tyler
dominated the backboards to
THE FISH jumped to a fast
69-64 lead in overtime but Tyler
came battling back and a jumper
by Brooks gave them their only
lead in the game at 70-69 with
1:29 remaining. The game was
tied at 71-71 when Cooksey con
nected for his winning goal.
The big story of the second
half was in rebounding where the
junior college team outdid the
Aggie freshmen 39-12. For the
game Tyler enjoyed a 62-44 edge
Brooks paced the Tyler re
bounding with 16 while Chatman
had 15 and Marshall contributed

California players on the squad.
Smith says that the Aggies are

stage but that the prospects are

Freeport Sulphur Company, one of the nation’s top producers of minerals,
offers the graduate engineer a challenging and professionally stimulating career
with unlimited advancement potential.
Freeport’s five divisions spread from Georgia to New Mexico while growth
continues at a phenomenal rate. Investments in new plant facilities in Louisiana,
alone, total more than $75 million. In 1968, sales are expected to exceed $175 mil
lion, with less than 3,000 employees.
For many years Freeport has been the leader in production of sulphur. It
also ranks among leaders in kaolin clay, potash, oil and gas. It will soon produce
phosphoric acid upon completion of its chemical plant at Convent, La. which will
place Freeport among the leading suppliers to the fertilizer industry.
Strong emphasis on research and process development, especially relating
to physical chemistry, minerals extraction and hydrometallurgy, has helped make
Freeport a leader in these fields.
The Engineering Department, too, has achieved prominence in project design,
development and construction supervision of new plants in virtually all of the
