With Jack Rabbit and Buffalo tro-
phies hanging to their bolta but with
Matador prizes missing Coach Cran-
f ill's Cowboy baskctccra returned yes-
terday after winning two out of three
games on their northwestern inva-
sion. Having disposed of the Wayland
Jack Rabbits 44-42 Tuesday night
and Canyon's Buffs 32-10 in Wed-
nesday's melee it seemed that the
Cowbos were bound for a clean sweep
of the tour until they ran Into tho
undefeated Texas Tech Matadors on
Thursday and suffered a 44-10 back-
set Gregg Stars.
Johnnye Gregg fourth year ace on
tho Cowboy squad was high scoring
man of tho trip ringing up 44 out
of the total of 05 points made by the
Simmons team against their three
opponents. Gregg was high point
man in the Wayland and Canyon en-
counters scoring 23 and 10 points re-
spectively but was held to a total of
5 in the Tech game when Fisher for
tho Matadors took the lead with 10
tallies. McCollum and Matthews with
six counters each were high for the
Cowboys against Tech.
The struggle with tho Wayland
quintet Tuesday proved unexpectedly
closcand thrilling. Tho Wayland men
proved themselves "long shot artists"
by consistently ringing goals from
outside the Cowboy defense.

highly vaunted West Texas Teachers.
"Not in the least awed by the Canyon
boast of being invincablo on their
home floor the Simmons team hand-
ed the Buffs a crushing 32-10 defeat.
It was one of the worst beatings' the
Teachers have ever suffered in their
The first half was bitterly contest-

during the last half with a fast and
accurately working offense.

TWO GAMES IN
Simmons New Free - Lance
Squad Beats Lawn And
As positive proof that they are a
force to bo reckoned with tho "Var-
sity Wranglers" new free-lance bas-
ketball quintet In the Cowboy camp
defeated a team from Lawn 20-13
Tuesday night and then sunk Drau-
ghon's Business College baskctccra
10-14 Wednesday night.
Rufus Hyde captain of tho Wran
glers team was high point man In
tho first contest while Red Bennett
took scoring honors the second night.
Tho Wnraglcrs have not completed
their season's schedule but aro anx
ious they1 say for games with teams
of the "Southwestern conference
class up or down." They aro plan-
ning a trip into north Texas near the
first of next month to meet several
all-star aggregations of that section.
Mtanwhilo they will continue their
"como ono come all" policy and tan
gle with any quintet nppearing on the
Corral floor in search of a game.
They have also issued a challenge
to the varsity squad.
Composed mostly of former var
sity men tho Wranglers present a
formidable front and promiso any
team in this Bcction an interesting
battle. Duo to scholastic demands
and outsido work they were prevent
ed from practicing regularly with
tho varsity and so by working out
whenever they find time arc get
ting in shape to uphold the Simmons
colors as free-lancers.
Led by Rufus Hyde captain busi
ness manager and coach tho Wran-
glers. Include men who havo been
prominent in varsity games for sev-
eral years. Hyde and David Kuhn
forwards havo each seen thrco years
in tho Cowboy uniform and report
that thoy aro feeling in better play-
ing form than ever before. Claude
Daniel and "Babe" Ribble guards both
saw much service with tho varsity
squad last season made all tho trips
and narrowly missed letters. Ribble
has played thrco seasons and Daniel
two. "Red" Bennett center was also
with the first team last year.
Wciman forward and McClurc
guard had several years of playing
experience before coming to Sim-
mons. McCIuro was with Montezu-
ma College and tho University of
Arizona whila Welman received his
training on tho Allen Academy quin-
Music is the sound of tho univer-
sal laws promulgated. It is tho only
assured tone. Thcer are in it such
strains as far surpass any man's faith
in the loftiness of his destiny. Things
are to be learned from it that will be
worth tho while to learn. Thoreau.

Thursday's battle tho
them all found Cranfill's men tired
from two bitterly contested matches
in a row. The first half ended in a
tie but in a fast and furious last
period' the Bull Fighters forged
ahead tfor a win.

Two wins oat of three starts take
tho money anyway. Beating the Can-
yon Buffaloes by a top-heavy score
on their own floor is a feat that is
not accomplished every day. In fact
for most teams its the thrill that
"comes once In a lifetime."
There's consolation in the fact
that vengeance will be ours February
5 when the Matadors come to tho
Cowboy corral for a return game.
And now wo hhve the "Varsity
Wranglers" who are issuing an open
challenge to tho world at largo to
meet them on tho hardwood floor.
Lack of self-confidenco is not ono of
their failings. Just to prove that
their principle purpose in tho busi-
ness is to ring up baskets tho Wran-
glers are downing all comers by ra-
ther decisive scores. "First Lawn
then Draughon's who's tho next to
tako us on" is now their slogan.
Acting on our suggestion of last
week that boxing be added to the list
of sports here several have signi-
fied their willingness to put on the
gloves with any opponent we may
choose. Drop by the Brand office
list your weight and previous boxing
experience and wc will find you an
opponent in your class.
A letter from Earl Hunt Sports
Editor of the Austin College paper
informs us that tho Kangaroos with
six letter men from last year's quint
aro expecting to go places in the
Texas Conference. We aro inclined
to ngrco with him to a certain extent
nnywny. Wo bcllevo that Austin Col-
lcgo will rank second in tho league
and that Southwestern has a good
chance to rate third. As you prob-
ably already know tho Simmons Uni-
versity Cowhands are fore-ordained
and pre-destincd to occupy for tho
second time the top most rung of tho
conference ladder when the season's
tallying is completed.
Tho big football feed is coming off
tonight. The 'S" Association has
urged every football man both var-
sity and Wrecking Crew members to
attend the banquet. A unique menu
and program carrying out the foot-
ball idea in every respect has been
planned. Details are being withheld
but the assurance has been given
that the program will be lively.
Tho Wrecking crow basketecrs will
be called upon to fill the gaps left in
tho varsity next season through grad-
uation 'of several Cowboy stars.
"Lefty" Hamilton is likely to see ser-
vice with tho first string" while
Greer Cogdell Herbert and several
others may also find themselves
working tout with tho varsity squad.
Lefty Hamilton Stars
Simmonsites In All
Hitting their strido after two
losses to tho Clyde Bulldogs Coach
Anderson's Wrecking Crew staged a
comeback and registered a decisive
victory over the Clyde quintet Wed-
All three games were hard fought
with Lefty Hamilton taking tho stel-
lar role in every contest for his team
while Farmer was high point man
for tho Bulldogs. The scrapping
Clydo squad twice conquerors this
season of Abilene high school have
one of tho best little combinations
in this section.
The Clydo team took the first game
of tho series Friday night January
10 by a score of 17-10 nnd then
nosed tho Wreckers out last Tuesday
13-12. At the end of tho second tilt
the count stood 11 all and thrco ex
tra minutes wero allowed to untio tho
score. Hamilton wns high scorer in
tho first and second gamca while
Cogdell nnd Greer also showed up
well. All of the 22 Wreckers coming
out saw service in one or the other
Of these games.
Playing his best game of the sea-
son Hamilton led tho Wrecking Crew
to a 23-18 victory over Clyde last
Wednesday afternoon. Seventeen
points wero personally accounted for
by him. Herbert scored the other
five for Simmons. Farmer as usual
was high point man for the visitors.
