MONDAY'S chief sport item is the
banquet to be given at Harlingen by
the Valley Amateur Basketball
league. Profits derived from this af
fair will be placed in a pot to be
used in sendmg the champions to
the Texas Amateur Federation
championship tournament. Some 200
people are expected to chomp the
grub tonight. About 160 of them will
be players, the remainder fans, man
agers. sport scribes, etc. The affair
is open to any interested in basket
ball. providing they have the nec
essary $1.50.
SPITZ CLARK, vice president of
the league, is very anxious to take
a pair of winning clubs to San An
tonio—his old stomping grounds.
Spitz wants to show them that Val
iey athletics are on a par with the
article turned out in the Alamo
City. The chief obstacle in his way
is finances, hence the banquet. The
tow-head s plea for money was so
heart-rending that the sports scribes
gently sobbed and agreed to pay
for their lunch. If you would sec
tradition shattered, be on hand to
night and watch Bish Clements.
Brad Smith and the rest of the
boys eat at $1.50 per plate.
THE basketball chase Is not over,
although the bracket champions art
in. Edinburg and the Harlingen
Methodists have not lost a tilt In
their 14-game schedule. But the run
ner-up position in both brackets is
in a sad way. McAllen and Donna
are tied for second in the upper
bracket. They will play it olf Tues
day night at some point to be de
| signaled at the banquet tonight. The
runner-up position is in an even
worse shape in the lower bracket.
San Benito has possession of second,
i but the Junior College has a chance
to tie her by winning a postponed
I game from tlte Model Laundry
1 Cleaners. The Scorpions announced
(they were ready to play any time,

Cleaners now have credit for the
game but the agreement was that
in case either club was in a position
to become runner-up at the end of
the season that the contest be play

a chance at the Valley championship

with the title holders. The two clubs

roundlay will make the trip up

Amateur Federation tournament.

! champion, will meet Sheik Davis’
Kingsville Brahmas in the near fu
1 ture for the bi-district champion
ship. The club which emerges vic
torious will make the trip to Austin,
participating in the state tourna
ment. The Brahmas had no easy
tune in winning their district. In
the final event they barely nosed
out Mathis 24-22 in a hard fought
contest. On the other hand, the
Bobcats took things rather easy at
McAllen Saturday. There were some
boys on the sidelines—the McHi
Bulldogs—however, who had given
: the Bobcats a close call in the Hi
dalgo county tourney. Had the
Macks gotten into the district, they
would have won almost as easily as
did Edinburg. They were champs
last year.

DALLAS. Feb. 24—The
Arkansas Razorbacks will have an
opportunity to sew up their fifth
successive Southwest conference
basketball title when they engage
the Rice Owls tonight at Houston
in the first game of their conclud
ing two-game series.
A victory in either bout would
give the Porkers the crown, even
if Texas University won its two
remaining contests. Even in the
event of a double reverse at the
hands of the Owls, which is. to
say the least, improbable, the lanky
Ozarkians could get no worse than
a tie for the bunting.

While the Razorbacks possibly could
have romped right on to the throne
room without any assistance from
the pupils of their old mentor.
Francis Schmidt, it took some of
the strain off their backs.
The Porkers’ path to their fifth
straight has been no bed of roses.
They left College Station Saturday
night with a sigh of relief. After

in the ranks of the Brooklyn Dod- 1
1 gers seems to be the big motive back
i of the holdout, of Jim Faulkner.
Southpaw, drafted from Buffalo,
last fall.
Faulkner, according to club offi
cials. seeks a salary of $12,000, a
big price even for first-rate exper
ienced pitchers. The only Dodger
pitcher who will get more than that
is Dazzy Vanze with his $20,000 con
tract. William Watson Clark, who.
with the ailing Jim Elliott, forms
the left-handed department of the
pitching staff, is getting only $10,
000 a year.
If Faulkner doesn't modify his de
mands quickly, the club plans to
send him back to Buffalo.

closed Sunday with the “Blues” de

team finished the season without
a defeat although in the last five
games the “Yellows'* threatened con
tinually to break into the win column
and, except for brief periods, played
the winners on even terms.
The “Yellows’ played Sunday’s
game in white shirts but even this
change could not overcome the ac
curate hitting of Lieutenant Col

long stroke.
The end of the game furnished the
most amusing incident of the series.
Captain Maxwell dismounted to re
cover a stirrup and accidently drop
ped his reins. His horse lost no tune
in running through the line of cars
along the field and to the stables.
The referee learning that there was
but little time remaining and see

to even up the score, called the
game while Captain Maxwell with
his stirrup over his shoulder walked
down the field to the gooaby cheers
of the crowd.
