victory came at the expense of his
idol Koufax. It was their first and
last meeting. A southpaw, like
Koufax, the 20-year-old Holtzman
hurled a no-hitter for eight innings
before yielding two hits and a run
in the ninth. Holtzman and the
Cubs won the game 2.1.

and a good curve," remarked
Koufax after the game. "He

Red Auerbach and the deposed

Schayes, is a former NBA all-
star. He is slated to lead the New
York franchise team in the new
American Basketball Association.
The new league, and the ex-
pansion of the NBA. may see more
Jewish collegians taking a shot
at the professional game. Last
season only Rudy LaRusso, L.A.

Red Auerbach is general manager
