The sox and the tigers have divided the decisions in their two former games this season and manager George Fritz thinks he has found the winning combination now to take Down the High flying a Cruces club. Bobby Fritz was the hurling Star of last sundays tilt blazing in a streaking fast Ball and displaying a tantalizing curve that limited the ordinarily heavy hitting a Caps to four balls hit out of the infield All Day. Also providing a stabilizing influence in the dark horse lineup have been the performances of e. Smith who has been displaying varied talents around the hot Corner and j. Woods Stocky receiver whose stance and performance Are being likened to Roy Campanella. Both have been turning out a Brand of play which has been potent in the a a jelling of the sox infield. Albuquerque Utlz its hard to figure who a the favorite after two Days of practice have gone by for the annual North South basketball game. But the South is fast emerging As the favored squad for the football game. The Southern Basket Baller going through their second Day of practice for the annual All Star game yesterday showed some Fine form hitting the Basket but a Little ineptness in adjusting themselves to the Ball control tactics favored by coach Doyle Parrack of Oklahoma. The Northern Crew on the other hand has found the fast break style of coach Prog Allen of Kan Sas to their liking but is having for the saturday classic the Bas trouble finding the Range. Rebels favored in football the big Tough rebels Are emerging from a toss up situation to the top heavy favourites. Big Strong and deep they went through their second Day of drills yesterday with pure Power and Devil take the deception the word of the Day. They re working out of a single Wing. The Northern footballers however Are using a t formation something Many of them Are unfamiliar with in an attempt to offset something of the size advantage of the South. While football coaches Phil Dickens of Wyoming and Woody Woodard of Southern methodist Are still experimenting with their lineups netball mentors Are beginning to Settle on their choices for the Friday game. South looks Good the South unit coached by Barrack is beginning to shape up with either Dale Caton of Alamogordo or Melvin Paul of Las Cruces along with Joe Kelly of Carlsbad Nelson Moore of Artesia mob Martin of Clovis and Joe Willmore of Carlsbad. The North team apparently will be composed of some form of combination of Tommy Arviso of Gallup George Harris of Albuquerque Jim Day of Clayton Gil Montoya of Wagon Mound Roger Smith of Santa Rosa., Roger Smith of Highland and Eli Mccullough of St. Mikes. East Side West Sid South has tremendous line fans ignore Ruidoso fuss by Robert Green associated press sports writer there a a Little bit of confusion in the ranks of the coaches attending the annual coaching school in Albuquerque. All the Advance notices had the Ito eth and the South about even for their annual All Star game but the More the coaches look Over the Southern aggregation the More they tend to favor that huge Crew. It s one of the biggest that has Ever appeared in the annual game. Joan Wooten of Carlsbad is the big wheel on the line. He has been recognized As the outstanding Linesman in the state most of the year. His performances during Early practices this week have left University of new Mexico coaches drooling. Tho South Backfield is possibly the largest the annual game has Over seen. Milt Barron of Clovis Dave Sharer of Carlsbad and Sherman Pruitt of Roswell Are All flirting with the 200 Pound Mark and Are Strong and wilting. Add to that combination a couple of Clever speedsters like Fred Sanders and John Riddle of Artesia throw in front of them a huge line and you have a system that looks pretty hard to beat.
