THE HUMBLE ECHO
THURSDAY, MARCH 12, 1964
A Few In The Rafters
They put on another good show up in Austin last
weekend...in the State Basketball Tournament. The
finals on Saturday were kicked off with a double
overtime in the class B championship game and
right behind that came an overtime in the double A
The rest of the games weren’t quite that close,
but close enough.
Hardin-Jefferson, the district 23-AA representa-
tive, didn’t fare well, winding up in fourth place
in the four-team class A A field. But this region’s
class A representative, Talco, was impressive in
taking the state title in that division...the speedy
Trojans weren’t pushed in either of their two victories
In fact the class A state championship game, as
it turned out, was actually played up at A&M a
week earlier in the regional tournament. That was
when Talco bumped defending champ West Sabine
by four points and earned the state tourney spot.
When we first heard about it, we didn’t like
the new scheduling of games in the tournament this
year, but for a one-day spectator, as we were
this year, it works out better. University Inter-
scholastic League officials tried to cut down on the
crowds a bit at Gregory Gym by playing consola-
tion games at a high school gym and scheduling only
the five championship games on Saturday at Gregory
rather than the five title games and two third place
And the new scheduling did cut down a little on
^the crowds. The gym was always full, (we still saw
\ sa few fans perched here and there in the rafters),
t but it didn’t seem quite as hectic as in years gone
Hand In Hand
Rockdale’s disqualification after winning bi-dis-
tfict in basketball oVer Taylor this year stems from
an incident before the start of football practice last
season, we were told by a coach at the State Tourna-
ment. According to this version, Taylor had issued
football equipment to players before the start of
practice last summer. Other district 20-AA schools
found out about it and told UIL athletic director Dr.
Rhea Williams. Rockdale, in district 19-AA, found
out about it, too. Dr. Williams said he would back
the district 20-AA committee’s ruling on the matter
* - and that committee voted to simply require Taylor
* ' to take up all the equipment that had been issued and
l 'hold it until the start of practice. After Taylor
\ stunned Rockdale, 9-7, in bi-district, Rockdale again
] brought up the early issuance of equipment by Taylor,
« but Dr. Williams stuck by his earlier ruling to back the
I district committee’s ruling. Taylor lodged its corn-
el plaint against Rockdale placing one player in theee
$ games in one week after losing in basketball bi-
* district to Rockdale, 50-32, and that one stuck and
Rockdale was out... Football and basketball can go hand
in hand in one season, it was proved by Graham this
year. Dumas proved it a couple of seasons ago by
winning state titles in both football and basketball
T in the same year, but Graham went a little further
* toward proving the point this year. Several of
the Dumas basketball players hadn’t played football,
but all five of Graham’s basketball starters were
football starters and they were too big and too tall
for Clear Creek in the triple A title game. Led by
6-8 Mike Lochner, Graham’s shortest starter was
'6-2, the height of Clear Creek’s tallest regular.
Needless to say, Graham allowed Clear Creek pre-
cious few rebounds...Talco won its championship by
the widest margin of any team, 75-60, over Henriet-
ta...Canyon won the AA title by the narrowest possible
margin, 52-51. Only one point was scored in an over-
time period in that game as Canyon and Lancaster
were deadlocked at 51-51 at the end of regulation

extra large breed - good yard layers
... and just the place to enjoy it
Find out for yourself what this Chevy II can really do. If
there are hills nearby, let it give them a good going-over.
Then see it give slow-moving trucks the run-around.
With its new extra-cost V8 you need but give the acceler-
ator an inch, and this Super Sport will take a mile.
And this great highway performer looks the part it
plays so well. A glance at its all-vinyl interior
and door-to-door carpeting will tell you that,
There’s your choice of either the floor-mounted
Powerglide or Four-Speed Synchro-Mesh lllUllll
Chevy II Nova Super Sport with Bucket Seats
transmission. Both are optional at extra cost, along with
a Positraction rear axle, AM-FM radio, and many other
accessories. And for all its new power, Chevy II rides so
softly it seems to glide along the highway. That’s
because it has high-mounted independent coil springs in
the front and Mono-Plate single-leaf springs in the rear.
With everything Chevy II Super Sport has go-
ing for it, it’s no surprise your Chevrolet dealer
is anxious to show you its price tag. Because
that’s the only thing about it that isn’t super.
