CHICAGO - The Detroit Red
Wings clung to their one point
hold on fourth place in the Na-
tional Hockey League's East Divi-
sion last night by whipping the
Chicago Black Hawks 5-2.
The victory was vital to the De-
troit hopes for making the Stanley
_up Playoffs because the fifth-
place New York Rangers kept pace
by beating Toronto 2-1 yesterday.
-Their first home loss in 11
games cost the Black Hawks a
chance to move into undisputed
possession of first place in the
East ahead of the Boston Bruins.
he Bruins were beaten 6-3 by
Montreal last night.
Goalie Roy Edwards turned in
a brilliant performance for the
Wings against 37 Chicago shots.
He was particularly brilliant in

From the calibre of the talent
that was assembled, you might
have expected a landslide of rec-
ords to fall. But when the cream
of swimmingdom gathered for the
N C A A Swimming and Diving
Championships at Salt Lake City
last week they ran out of air. Lit-
At an altitude of over four
thousand feet, the unexperienced
quickly found their breath around
Utah's pool running a little short.
DURING the first two days of
the meet, Michigan held on to
fifth place, but on the last day
lost its grip and slipped to sixth
behind Long Beach State, with
only eight points separating the
"We had a good chance to fin-
ish fifth," said Coach Gus Stager,
"but we needed some help from
the freshmen. Part of the reason
for their poor showing was theist
inexperience, especially at that
high an altitude."
The height still did pot prevent
Indiana from reaching the peak.
But the Hoosiers were off their
record setting 427 point preform-
ance of last year, finishing at only
332. Southern Cal and Stanford
ranked in the same positions as
before, with 235 and 206 points
respectively. The -remaining teams
rounding out the top ten were:
UCLA 185, Long Beach State 126,
Michigan 118, SMU 96, Colorado
State 85, Tennessee 75, and OSU
"I'm disappointed, bu not dis-
couraged," commented Stager. "We
could have used a little more sup-
port from theubackstrokers and
breastrokers, but I think that
maybe I was expecting too much
from the freshmen. They weren't
quite ready physically. Still the
meet should give them good ex-
perience for next season."
STAGER'S point is evidenced by
soph Byron MasDonald's achieve-
ments. The young butterflier
,jumped from a mediocre per-
formance as a freshman to take a
twelfth and a fifth at this year's
NCAA's. "Byron needed a year
to mature. I hope I can get the
same growth from the other fresh-
men," said Stager.
Stalwarts Juan Bello and Gary
Kinkead turned in their usual ex-
cellent performances. Bello's forte
was a gold medal in the 200-yard
freestyle, .,the first in his four
years of NCAA competition. His
1:42.70 edged out favorite Mark
Spitz, reversing the results of last
year. Bello also placed fourth in
the 100-yard fly, and seventh in
the 200-yard IM.
Kinkead finished at 4:10.57 be-
hind Indiana's Gary Hall for sec-
ond place in the 400-yard IM and
tenth in the 200, with an addition-
al eighth in the 200-yard back-
stroke. Junior Bill M a ho n e y
ranked tenth in the 100-yard
breastroke, while the medley re-
lay took fourth.
Diver Dick Rydze finished third
in both the one and three meter
contests, as Hoosier Jim Henry
repeated his feat of last year by
sweeping the two events.

Oakland and Minnesota . ..
.. fighting themselves
When the American League split into two divisions for the
1969 season, two of the happier ball clubs were the Oakland
Athletics and the Minnesota Twins. The A's and Twins had
both finished in the second division of the American League
the year before, but under the, new set up, they would no long-
er be competing with any of the teams that had finished ahead
LAst season the two ballclubs battled for the American
.'League's Western Division championship into September be-
fore Minnesota went on a tear and pulled away from Charley
-Finley's Oakland squad. This year the same two teams figure
to battle it out again.
The rest of the teams in the division-Chicago, Kansas
City, California and Milwaukee-will have enough trouble
keeping themselves out of the cellar.
The major problem facing Oakland and Minnesota, is,
ironically enough, the same. Both teams have been struck
down by dissension and disorganization.
THE TWINS BECAME notorious last season for their
donneybrooks on and off the field. The most famous fight
involved the slugfest' between .manager Billy Martin and ace
pitcher Dave Boswell. Aside from the incident, Martin was
extremely well-liked, especially by the Twins fans. The Min-
nesota owner, Calvin Griffith, however, was less than pleased
with his manager's conduct during the season, and as soon
as his ballclub was eliminated in the American League playoffs,
Martin was given his walking papers..
The 'move met with displeasure with everyone in the Twin
Cities-the press, fans, and Twin players. Fans took to wearing
"Bring back billy" buttons and they were not talking of Martin's
eventual successor, the veteran mentor Bill Rigney. Some of
the players were openly critical of Griffith's move and added
caustic comments about the Twin owner in respect to his
meddling in the team's affairs and his tendency to pay less than
what players are worth at least in the players' own minds.
Some of the individuals concerned are gone-notably top-
flight center fielder Ted Uhlaender, who was gifted to the
f Clevelaid Indians along with third baseman Craig Nettles and
pitchers Dean Chance and Bob Miller in exchange for Tribe
hurlers Luis Tiant and Stan Williams, but others are still in a
Twin uniform and the discontent is likely to be simmering just
out of sight for the bulk of the season.
ASIDE FROM THEIR internal problems, the Twins have
few problems which would prevent them from repeating as the
champions of the American- League West. The only possible
problem spot is catching where four youngsters are battling for
the job-last} year's rookie phenom George Mitterwald appears
to have the inside shot at the job.
Oakland, like the Twins; has a rather solid lineup. The A's
possess a comparable infield of Don Mincher at first, Dick
Green at second, Campy Campaneris at short, and Sal Bando
at third. The outfield of Felipe Alou, Rick Monday, and Reggie
Jacksoh is probably stronger than Minnesota's, but their catch-
ing is just as much a questionmark, and their pitching is not
quite as deep, on paper, as the Twins'.
THE ATHLETICS also have some management difficulties.
Charles O. Finley is one of the more innovative and controversial
owners in baseball. He developed the idea of colored uniforms
and starting the World Series on the weekends and has added
to his repertoire the plan to use colored bases this season.
In addition to his innovations, Finley has gained a name
for himself in regard to his ability to go through managers.
The new Oakland manager John McNamara is the tenth man-
ager of the team since Finley gained control of the Athletics nine
Neither of the two contenders have much to worry about
from behind.: As previously mentioned, none of the other clubs
have a plethora of talent. Thus the main question for the two
teams will be whether they can conquer their own problems
so they can go out and conquer the other for the Western

The game was deadlocked at
111 with 1:33 remaining when
McGlocklin was fouled by Phila-
delphia's Darrall Imhoff. He
made the free throw to send the
Bucks ahead by a point.
Philadelphia failed to score and
McGlocklin hit with a long jump
shot to make it 114-111 with 50
seconds to go. Before it was over,
McGlocklin calmly dropped in
four more free throws as the 76ers

the final quarter. He was involved,
however, in a play that may have
