THE BATTALION Thursday, May 30, 1968 College Station, Texas Page 9 Belmont Favorite Is Forward Pass NEW YORK (^T) — With Dan- Vote For BILL PRESNAL State Representative Run-off Primary SATURDAY JUNE 1 (Paid Pol. Ad. by Bill Presnal) cer’s Image retired from racing, Forward Pass loomed as an odds- on choice to win Saturday's $100,- 000-added Belmont Stakes and complete a sweep of the Triple Crown. The Calumet Farm’s strong runner was listed Wednesday as a 4-5 choice in a probable field of nine for the IV2 mile classic. He was the favorite for both the Kentucky Derby and the Preak- ness but not at odds-on. If the Calumet charger sweeps the Big Three, he will be the first to do so since Citation in 1948. If all nine 3-year-olds go to the post, the race will gross $161,450 with $117,700 going to the win ner. ipf& Sports Aplenty Pan-Am Falls m Handball To TU 3-0 In At A&M Opening Game UL; By GARY SHERER AUSTIN <A>> _ Larry Hardy, a sophomore righthander from —- Bellaire, struck out 12 batters k and allowed onlv two hits Wed- Land Is At Your AGGIELAND FLOWER AND GIFT SHOPPE North Gate • Cards • Party Goods • Baby Albums • Invitations • Personalized Stationary Billiards Cue Sticks Pin Ball Magazines Party Record Decals Pocket Books Bumper Stickers Comic Signs Other Games Open 7 Days A Week Aggie Den (Next To Loupot’s) Saying that Ozzie Burke is not enthusiastic about hand ball is like saying that Randy Matson doesn’t want to win an Olympic Gold Medal. The junior Industrial Arts major is the president of the Texas A&M Handball Club that includes 50 members made up of students and faculty. Burke, who hails from Bryan, has been playing hand ball since high school and his reputation precedes him around DeWare Fieldhouse. We talked recently to Ozzie about the handball situa tion at A&M. It should be noted that he and Dan Kennerly helped to put Texas A&M in the national handball spotlight about three weeks ago when the pair won the National Intercollegiate Doubles Championship at St. Louis. “It’s a shame people can’t get to see us play,’’ Ozzie related when we discussed further in the handball facilities at DeWare. There are several courts in the fieldhouse but only two are equipped with places where several people can observe the action. Even these courts aren’t adequate, as a wire mesh covers the opening and you get the same view as if you were looking through a catcher’s mask. The club members are unhappy about this, but Ozzie says the real problem is the courts themselves. “In order to keep your game In shape, the courts should be of plaster,” Ozzie pointed out. DeWare’s courts are all wood and the club has been after the Physical Education Department to make renovations but they have met with little success. A comparison can be made with Texas’ facilities which Ozzie observed are close to the best college courts in the nation. They, like A&M are a state-supported school, but they have much better facilities. We would surmise from this, that some serious thought should be given to improve the handball courts here. The Aggie Club financed the team at the St. Louis tournament but with that exception, the club has received little financial help from the university. Possibly more effort on the part of those responsible and some of those changes might become a reality. Is there enough enthusiasm for those changes? Just talk to Ozzie Burke, and you’ll get your answer. nesday as Texas whipped Pan American College, 3-0, in the opening game of their NCAA baseball playoff. The two teams, competing for the Dist. 6 spot in the college world series June 10-15 at Oma ha, Neb., will, play again Thurs day and, if a third game is neces sary, Friday. All games are sche duled for Austin. Hardy retired the last 14 bat ters to face hLm after Pan Ameri can’s Alan Jones singled in the fifth inning. Jones, a .125 hitter, also got the Edinburg school’s other hit, a single in the second. It was the best performance ever by a Longhorn pitcher in playoff competition leading to the college world series. Texas scored in the second on George Nauert’s double and a single by Bob Snoddy. In the sixth, Pat Brown singled, stole and scored on David Hall’s single. The final Longhorn run came in the ninth when Snoddy doubled, moved to third on a ground out and scored when Jones dropped the throw to the plate after Hardy grounded out.
