The important. try for extra point was blocked by Tommy Jax, - LAMAR vs. ARLINGTON HElGHTS Dropping the only game of the season to the powerful Yellow Jackets, Lamar failed to bring home the State Championship. Hiindered by injuries received in the Jeffer- son game, Lamar's offensive was subnor- mal. The Redskin line played great ball, but breaks gave Arlington a two touch- down lead. A terrific wind making it diffi- cult to pass and punt, put the lndians in serious trouble more than once that after- noon. A ' , JOHN SHUDDE C475 HARVEY SMITH C455 SPENCER STONE C425

HOGUE ADDINGTON MUNNERLYN STRAWN JAX GARTH Ka lzetball Lamar fielded another fast interesting ball club. Coach Don Longcope lived up to his title of "Fire Chief" and led his cagers in their fire wagon attack. The team started practicing soon after school opened. With the beginning of the Christmas Holidays the Lamar cagers journeyed to Conroe to play in the Shrine Tournament. They dropped their second game of the tournament to Milby. The first weekend in January Lamar won the Houston Jaycee Tournament by beating Sam Houston in the finals. Lamar made fine showing in all their Tournament games and placed two boys on the All-Tournament five. George Pontikes and Larry Hogue were the sparks and All-Tournament selections of the Redskins. ln the middle of January, Lamar played in the Huntsville Tournament without the services of the ex-footballers. The Indians advanced to the quarter finals before being ousted by a finalist club. At the end of the season, Lamar found itself in a tie with San Jacinto for second place. There was a play-off series to determine who would represent Houston in the Big City play-offs. Lamar lost in successive games to the hustling, straight- shooting Bears. George Pontikes and Don Olsen were elected co-captains of the basketball team. Pontikes was also the city's top scorer and Lamar's only member of the All-City cage team.
