Cagers Surrender To Arlington;
Old Faithful Leads Ram Scores
In their preparation for the big
conference tilt against St. Mary's
of Austin, which took place last
Friday night, the Texas Wesleyan
Rams overlooked the capabilities
of the Engineers of Arlington
Last Tuesday night, the Rebels'
outgunned the Rams by a margin
of 80-66, in Arlington. The Rams
experienced one of their coldest
shooting attacks, connecting for
only 22 field goals for 30 per
cent. The Rebs' were successful
on 40 per cent, also a fttild figure,
If one had stopped by the Rams'
dressing room after the game, they
would have noticed the air of
glumness throughout the room.
However, Ram mentor, Elmer
Hanebutt pointed out in a Wed-
nesday afternoon skull session,
how the gloomy attitude of the
ASC game could point to an in-
spired attack for the St. Mary's
"Old faithful," captain Jody
Giesler once again led the Rams'
scoring punch with 24 points, fol-
lowed by Cecil Goff's 17. Jimmy
Martin led ASC's front with 22,
and Jay Hawley contributed 18.
Giesler was currently carrying a
mean 21 point per game average
into last weekend's final Big State
tilt of the season.
TWC never enjoyed a lead in
the game, but cut the margin to
one point on several brief occas-
ions. Late in the second half, they
trailed by as much as sixteen. Not
only did the Rams trail in field
goal percentage, but were also out-
done in the ball-snagging depart-
Probably one reason for the
team's apparent let-up was due
to the fact that the < AVesleyans
only suited up seven players for
the game. This probably caused
the players to ease up a bit on de-
fense, for fear of fouling out of
the game. Ordinarily, the Rams
squad consists of eight members;
but, earlier in the week, fresh-
man center Tommy Thomson in-
i jured his right ankle in workout, Moore
j causing him to miss the contest, j Ditto
Through the ASC tilt, the Rams' :
| season record, including the Cotton j
! Bowl tourney in Dallas, during;
j Christmas, stood at nine wins j
against fifteen losses. Followingj
the St. Mary's game, there are j
only two more basketball games j
remaining on the schedule: tonight, j

Texas Wesleyan Exes were
treated joyously to a tremendous
homecoming game last Friday
night, as the TWC Rams closed
their 1 '.>('» 1 season with a victory
over St. Mary's of Austin, 98-94.
An estimated homecoming crowd i
of 500 saw the Rams stave off a
furious rally staged in the closing !
minutes of play by the Rattlers.
The Rams led by <*is much as IS
points on six different occasions—
•13-30, 47-31, 49-36, 53-50, 55-42 ,
and 60-47. However, with only 4:45
remaining in the game, the visi-
tors held a three point margin over
the Rams, 89-86. Seconds later,
the Wesleyans went ahead on j
Cecil Goff's layup, 92-90, to stay. |
All five starters for the Rams ■
scored in the double figure col- '
limn, ranging from sixteen to
twenty-three points individually.
Their field goal percentage proved
the accuracy of their sharpshoot-
ing, as they connected on 36 of 77
attempts for a fine 47 per cent.
St. Mary's hit 39 buckets for 42
per cent. The losers won in the
rebounding department by a 50-
Goff, Hoskins Score
A pair of Kentucky forwards,
Goff and Donnie Hoskins, each
scored 23 points to pace the Ram
attack. This was the third straight
game in which Goff and Hoskins
have tied in the scoring race. John
Yager added 17 tallies, hitting
sharply in the first half, as did
freshman center James Neu. Neu's
clutch scoring and defense enab-
led the Rams to move from seven
| to thirteen points ahead early in
, the first half.
Team captain, Jody Giesler,
somewhat off his 21 point con-
ference average, hit for 16 points
and sparked the Wesleyan attack
with devastating passing and key
play-making. Giesler finished his
final Big State game for the Rams,
averaging a fine 20.8 points per
game through league warfare.
Earlier in the week, Coach Hane-
butt stressed the importance of
holding the Rattler's leading scor-
er, Ken Samson, believing this
would hold the Rattler's scoring
This proved to be true, as Sam-
son did most of the damage, scor-
ing 22 points.
Conference Record 5.3
The Rams finished their confer-
ence schedule with a 5-3 mark and
can only sit by and hope that St.
Edward's and Pan American each
lose another game, therefore
throwing the lead into a three way
Tonight the Methodists re-stage
a previous battle against Arling-
ton State at the Recreation Build-
ing. There also will be a 'B' game
of these two schools at 6 p.m.
TWC's junior varsity also
claimed a victory last Friday
night, as they raced by Gaines-
ville jr. college, 83-76. Ronnie Dit-
to paced the Ram's scoring punch
with 19 points, while Bobby Moore
and Hershel Winkle added 15
apiece. Jerry Hunt also contribut-
ed 11 points.

Moore Proves Worth
As Sub And JV Man
... -.^i -
With no games remaining in
this year's conference action, the
Rams must sit by and await the
results of the conference.
Composing a fine 5-3 mark in
Big State action, the Rams count-
ed heavily on experienced substi-
tutes throughout the year. One
of the finest members of the re-
serve strength, was a sophomore
from Mineral Wells, Bobby Moore.
Moore transferc-d to Texas Wes-
leyan College this year from
Weatherford junior college. In his
single year at Weatherford, as a
freshman, Moore averaged better
than 15 points per game.
However, he did not begin to
prove himself in college. He was
a star at Mineral Wells high
school, being named to several All-
district and All-county teams.
Bobby stands 6>' 1" and weighs in
at 177 pounds, lie is one of the
fastest members of the Rams and
used extensively at the guard po-
Although he has seen limited
j action in varsity action, scoring
21 points in six conference games,
for a modest 3.5 points per game
average, Moore has been picking
up valuable experience by playing
on the junior varsity team as well.
He has scored 20 points or bet-
. ter, in numerous JV tilts this year,
averaging approximately 16 points
A hard worker, and possesing a
great eye for the basket, Bobby is
being counted on heavily for ac-
tion in next year's action for the

ATTENTION, ALL TRACK MINDED MALES OK !
TEXAS WESLEYAN COLLEGE!
II any male student ot TWC.,' is interested in pnrticipat- |
ing in truck and field events, as an inter-collegiate represen- ■
tative of TWC, he is urged to contact Coach Walter Langston I
I This track team will not be an intramural team, but
will represent TWC in inter-collegiate circles, the same as 1
the TWC basketball team functions.
Coach Langston emphasized that if enough interest was
shown in support of this new phase of athletics for TW, the ,
project will be carried out. If not, it will tie discontinued.
In our opinion, this will be another step in placing TWC
"on the map, ' not only as an athletic power, but also as an
institutiion of higher learning, as well.
LETS ALL SUPPORT THIS NEW STEP TOWARD
