SPORTS BULLETS:
Snder to lead Wildcats,
Czech icers smash U.S.
By The Associated Press .
* EVANSTON, Ill.-Brad Snyder, interim coach for the final
six games of the season, was named yesterday head basketball
coach at Northwestern University.
Snyder, 30, directed the Wildcats to a 4-2 Big Ten record and
lifted them from last to fifth place in the conference standings after
replacing Larry Glass, who resigned'Feb. 1.
The appointment was announced by Athletic Director Tippy Dye
who said: "This was a situation where a coach really won his job."
Snyder was given a one-year contract.
0 PRAGUE-Czechoslovakia trounced the United States 11-0
yesterday in an ice hockey match.
The UA. team arrived only 5% hours before the rhatch. It
played here as a warmup for the World Hockey Championships next
week in Stockholm. '
The American team, which arrived here on a round about flight
from Chicago to Toronto to Paris and Frankfurt, had no sleep for
26 hours.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.-St. Louis Cardinals General Man-
ager Bing Devine said yesterday he received word from Julivan Javier
that the second basenian was ready to sign a contract for the original
terms offered.
Devine said Javier will fly to St. Petersburg tomorrow night and
is expected to sign Friday and begin practice that day.
Last Friday, Javier reversed a decision 'to sign a contract and
returned to his home in the Dominican Republic. He had reported
last Thursday night and had agreed to sign the next day. But Friday
morning he announced that he wasn't signing.
Javier was the last of the National League champions' holdouts.
* * * * -
i ORLANDO, Fla.-Dean Chance, right-hander pitcher, signed a
1969 contract with the Minnesota Twins yesterday, leaving only two
players still unsigned by the American League team.
Chance accepted the last offer from Twins President Calvin
Griffith, $55,000, a $5,000 cut from what he received last year, when
he 'was 16-16.
The only Twins not signed are pitcher Jim Kaat and Cesar To-
var, infielder-outfielder. Tovar has not arrived at the Twins' camp
from his native Venezuela but is not expected to be a holdout.
Southpaw Kaat, a frequent critic of club policies, is regarded as a
more serious holdout possibility.
* CLEARWATER, 'Fla.-Chris Short, a 19-game winner last
year, had his right knee in a cast as injuries continued to plague
the Philadelphia Phillies yesterday.
Short is feared to have strained tendons, which could sideline
him past the opening of the regular baseball season next month.
" BALTIMORE-A federal bankruptcy referee approved yes-
terday the conditional sale of the Philadelphia Eagles football team
for $16,055,000 to Leonard H. Tose, a Norristown, Pa., trucking
executive.
Tose won the right to purchase the National Football League
team with a last-ditch, offer that topped by $5,000 a bid submitted
by Thomas D. McCloskey, a Philadelphia builder.

Asked if
} hibited by

him, Wooden answered, "The style
was what we expected but we were
surprised they executed as well as
they did."
Boyd said the Trojans had prac-
ticed the ball control game
through the season largely to use
late in games to protect leads.
"The players were well condi-
tioned to play that way and had
great confidence in that style of
a game."
While the loss probably will
serve to arouse the methodical
Bruins when they begin defense
of the NCAA title they have won
the last . two years, it also has
given all challengers the new idea
that UCLA can be beaten.
"It only proves UCLA is mortal,"
said Lou Carnesecca, coach of St.
John's, one of the teams that ad-
vanced to the regionals last Sat-
urday with a 72-63 victory over
Princeton.
"The loss could be a great
thing for UCLA because it now
takes the pressure of the long
winning streak off, or it could be
that the team is mentally and
physically tired. If that's the case,
they could be in for trouble."
USC, a crosstown rival which
pushed the Bruins into double
overtime Friday night before los-
ing 61-55, beat UCLA for the first
time in 18 games on Ernie Powell's
jump shot with seven seconds re-
maining.
Playing a slowdown game, the
Trojans, who lost 11 games this
season, took only 20 shots and hit
12 of them. But just as important,
they held giant 7-foot-1/2 All-
American Lew Alcindor to 10
points, largely on the play of 7-1
Ron Taylor.
Wooden was asked if he had
considered taking Alcindor out of
the Saturday night game to
change its tempo.
"I did think about that," Wood-
en replied, "but how we do in the
tournament depends on Alcindor."

do the job. Maybe this will."
Wooden appeared at the South-
ern California Basketball Writers
r luncheon Monday and was asked
if he has thought of a method to
attack the ball control game.
"Yes," he replied, "I have. And
I'm not going to tell you."
He did note that New Mexico
State under Coach Lou Henson
used ball control a year ago in the
regionals when it lost to the Bruins
58-49 at Albuquerque.
"They gave us trouble last year
and it's Henson's style of play,"
Wooden commented.
The two clubs meet in the open-
ing round of the Western regionals
of the NCAA tournament. Weber
and Santa Clara clash in the other
at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion.
