Atlanta increases lead with Piston win,
It i r
Robinson, Cousy share spotlight in victory



Jy The Associated Press
DETROIT-The Atlanta Hawks,
who had a victory taken away ear-
lier in the day when a National
Basketball Association protest by
Chicago was allowed, wasted no
time in getting the triumph back
by thumping the Detroit Pistons
118-106, yesterday.
They had six players in double
figures, led by Bill Bridges with
27 and Joe Caldwell with 26.
Caldwell flipped in 12 of his
points in the second quarter when
the Hawks went ahead 58-50 and
then rushed in seven quick ones in
the third quarter after Detroit had
outscored the Hawks 15-3 and had
pulled within two points of a tie.
But the Hawks quickly countered
with a 12-2 outpouring, led by
15 points into three quarters, 88-
73, and never were in trouble the
rest of the way.
Royals crown Bu06
CINCINNATI - Deadeye Os-
car Robertson netted 15 first-
quarter points as Cincinnati ex-
ploded for a total of 44 in the
period and a 133-119 National
Basketball Association victory over
Chicago yesterday.
Robertson hit his first e i g h t
field goal attempts and wound up
with his season high of 41 points
in a game marked by Coach Bob
Cousy's return to the game as a
The Royals jumped out to a
quick 5-0 lead and were never
challenged as they mounted leads
up to 28 points - 67-39 -- in the
second quarter.
Cousy entered the game w i t h
5:16 to go in the third period and
hit his only field goal attempt
and his one free throw. He was
credited with three assists and one
rebound. He was given a standing
ovation when he got off the bench.


K iciks r'oll on


York Knicks stopped a last period
rally yesterday to defeat the 76ers
98-94 and extend their National
Basketball Association winning
streak to 14 games.
The Knicks led by 13 points, 77-
64, starting the fourth period, but
Philadelphia rallied to close the
gap to a basket with 1:14 re-
maining. A jumper by Hal Greer
left New York with a 94-92 lead.
The 76ers gained possession and
Greer scored what appeared to be
the tying basket with 40 seconds
left, but he was called for an of-
fensive foul on the play.
Walt Frazier made one of three
foul tries to make it 95-92. Billy
Cunningham, who led the 76ers
with 25 points, drove for a final
goal with nine seconds left to
make it 95-94. Philadelphia, how-
ever, couldn't get any closer and

the Knicks closed it out with three
free throws.
Bullet s burn Suns .
BALTIMORE - The Baltimore
Bullets blew a 15-point lead after
sinking 12 of their first 14 shots,
but rallied in the second half for a
126-116 National Basketball As-
sociation victory over the Phoenix
Suns yesterday.
Dick Van Arsdale thrice scored
three-point plays as he contin-
ually drove toward the basket
Connie Hawkins scored 20 for the
Suns. 13 in the third quarter, but'
none in the final period before
fouling out.
The victory was the sixth in a
row and the ninth in the last 10
games for the Bullets, who playedI
without injured Kevin Loughery
and with Gus Johnson benched for
more than half of the game be-
cause of foul trouble.


Just two days after the regular
football season climaxes, t h e
Michigan basketball season gets
underway with the 18th annual
Varsity versus Freshman g a m e.'
Monday at 8:00 p.m. in the Events
Building Coach Johnny Orr will
match his varsity squad against
the freshmen coached by George
Coach Orr w i 11 use his first
game as an opportunity to see all
his players in action and do a lit-
tle experimenting before the var-
sity opener against Detroit on De-
cember 1. Orr's starting quintet
will include -three regulars from
last season and two players new
to the starting lineup.
Rudy Tomjonavich, Michigan's
All-American forward, who aver-
aged 25.6 points a game last year,
will lead the returnees. Also back
from last year's 13-11 varsity are
senior guards Dan Fife and Mark
Henry. Moving into the pivot will
be junior Rodney Ford and the
second starting forward will be
Richard "Bird" Carter.
Orr said of Carter, "He's play-
ed very well in practice. He's an
excellent defensive player and
could surprise people."
CARTER PLAYED only p a r t
time for the Wolverines last year,
but should see more action this
year as a senior. Behind Carter
and Tomjonavich at forward will
be senior Bill Fraumann and
promising sophomore W a y n e
Grabiec. Orr said t h a t Grabiec

may 'be able to break into t h e
starting lineup-before the year is
Security in the backcourt will
be provided by Rick Bloodworth
and five-eight Dave Hart. O r r
plans to use all of his players in
this game to see how well they
perform under game conditions.
The deciding factor in the game
may be the success the freshmen
have in adapting to the varsity's
fast breaks. To compensate for
their lack of height, the varsity
plays a running game, and Coach
Pomey isn't sure if his freshmen
will be able to keep up.
It's not a lack of speed that
worries Pomey but more a lack
of practice time and a resulting
inability of the freshmen to con-
vert from offense to defense.
THE FRESHMEN have an ex-
cellent team this year with good
height and speed. The front line
is led by six-foot-eight Ernie
Johnson at center and John Lock-
ard and Leon Roberts at the for-
wards. Lockard is "only" 6-5 but
according to Pomey, "He jumps
like he was 6-8."
In the backcourt the Baby Blue
will go with Henry Wilmore and
Tim Megge. Wilmore w h o has
greatly impressed Pomey could
play at either forward or guard.
Pomey says of him, "He is a great
on the one-on-one. No one can
beat him at it."
With all this potential, Ponjey
does not plan to stress one man
too much in his offense. All play-
ers will get opportunities to score.
Both freshmen and varsity will
emloy man-to-man defenses but
Pomey feels that defense may be
the freshmen's weak point. "They
a r e talented players," he says,
"but they need time to play with
each other. Games help a lot, they
give the players motivation."
Pomey expects a high scoring
game. "The varsity will probably
break 100 and I hope we hit in
the 90's," but does feel the var-
sity should win, "Their extra two
to three years of experience help
them a lot." However, Pomey add-
ed, "a freshman victory wouldn't
surprise me."

Ru gers set
to revenge
loss to OSU
The struggle for Big Ten su-
premacy w 11 continue on two
fronts today. Despite the two set-
backs of a year ago 'one recorded
as 50-14 and one mentioned as
10-8), Michigan will go into ac-
tion today with strong ambitions
of turning the tide in the other
As w e 11 as the battle taking
place at the stadium, another con-
frontation will c6mmence at 11
a.m. today at Ferry Field.
In the last confrontation be-
tween the Michigan Blues and the
r'uggers from Ohio State, the
Buckeyes took the Big Ten crown
in a stunning last minute finish.
Michigan held the lead into the
final seconds w h e n the Blues
committed an infringement di-
rectly in front of their posts. This
action provided a scrum at_ the
Michigan five-yard line. The
Bucks neatly won the draw and
their determination a n d exper-
ience promptly carried the scarlet
and grey over the goal-line pro-
ducing the necessary try for a 10-
8 triumph.
The Buckeyes are regarded as
opportunists. They wait for er-
rors committed by the opponent
and then take the command.
Michigan coach Dr. John Robson
feai's this type of team, because
the Blues tend to let up late in
the game. "We've lost many games
over the years in this situation.
They (Michigan) slacken off in
the final minutes when the op-
position puts on pressure." Ac-
cording to Robson this is Michi-
gan's major fault.
The Blues will go into today's
action weak in the backfield.
Blues' fullback Ron Douglas was
injured in the Notre Dame fiasco
last Saturday and probably won't

DALLAS Af it - The Orange
Bowl offers sunshine and Miami
Beach. The Sugar Bowl offers
the New Orleans French Quar-
ter. The Cotton Bowl some-
times offers bleak weather and
always offers limited nightlife.
On New Year's Day, the Cot-
ton Bowl will also offer Notre
Dame in its first post season
football appearance in 45 years.
Many sports experts and fans
figure that makes the Cotton
Bowl the glamour attraction of
the bowl games, with the Fight-
ing Irish playing either Texas
or Arkansas.
Did Cotton Bowl officials,
Field Scovell and Wilbur Evans,
score a coup in lining up Notre
Dame? They believe they did.
On last Saturday night, Notre
Dame Athletic Director M o o s e

Krause told a newsman who
called him from Miami that his
personal preference was the
Orange Bowl.
All the time, Field Scovell of
Dallas, a big Texan with a slow
and easy drawl, was working in
the belief that the Orange and
Sugar Bowls had mounted high-
pressure campaigns. What could
he do?
"We didn't crowd those peo-
ple and it paid off," he told
The Associated Press.
"They seemed impressed that
we thought as much of aca-
demies as we did of athletics.
We told them we tried to blend
the two together and thought
their tradition and ours would
blend into an excellent rela-
Scovell began his cool maneu-

vers on Nov. 12. "Some local
Notre Dame folks told us Notre
Dame might be interested," he
said. "We told them we had
been down that path before and
that we felt like Notre Dame
would continue its policy of not
participating in post-season ac-

A telephone call was waiting

were for real," Scovell said.
Scovell and Evans talked with
Athletic Director' Moose Krause.
head coach Ara Parseghian and
the Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, exe-
cutive vice president of the uni-
versity and chairman of the fac-
ulty board in control of athletics
on Monday.
"It looked like they were
thinking the same thing we
were." Scovell said.
"Of course," Scovell said,
"more than passing interest was
the $350,000 they will get in the
guest spot. You wouldn't get that
passing the plate down the front
row the first time."
Father Joyce then announced,
that for the first time, since
1925, when Knute Rockne's Four
Horsemen whipped Ernie Nevers
and Stanford 27-10 in the Rose
Bowl. Notre Dame had accepted
a bowl bid.

Kelte(Iy upholds ')rotests;
St. Louis trades Pimson
By 'IThe Associated Press
* NEW YORK-Commissioner Walter Kennedy of the National
Basketball Association upheld a formal Chicago protest yesterday
and ruled an Atlanta-Chicago game at Chicago, Nov. 6, a 124-124 tie
instead of an Atlanta victory, 124-122.
Kennedy directed that the game be concluded o Atlanta's next
appearance in Chicago, Feb. 8, 1970, prior to the start of the regularly
scheduled gare between the teams on that date.
The dispute involved the tying field goal by Chicago's Tom Boer-
winkle and whether it was made within the time limit. The original
ruling was that time had run out. Kennedy said an investigation
showed that the goal was made with one second still left to play.
* ST. LOUIS--The St. Louis Cardinals. trying to trade them-
selves into pennant contention again, are fast running out of trade
material among the 1969 regulars.
Minutes after the interleague trading period opened at midnight
Thursday, general manager Bing Devine announced officially what
had been reported earlier: that outfielder Vada Pinson was being
sent to Cleveland in exchange for outfielder Jose Cardenal,
Except for the pitching staff-which Devine would prefer to keep
intact-only five of last season's regulars are left.
"Nothing is hanging fire new," Devine said yesterday when asked
about possibilities of further deals. "We're always looking. If we see
or hear about a deal that would help the club, we're ready to talk
* MOSCOW_-The Soviet Union surprised the Olympic world yes-
terday by announcing it will bid against Los Angeles, Montreal and
Florence, Italy, for the 1976 Summer Olympics.
Although the Russians have competed in the Olympics since 1952
and were the top medal winners in the 1956 and 1960 Summer Games
and second to the United States in 1964 and 1968, they have never
offered to stage the Games.
* HANOVER, N.H.-A proposal to raise money for Holy Cross
College, whose football schedule was canceled this fall because of
an outbreak of hepatitis, has been proposed by Dartmouth College
Holy Cross dropped its football schedule only two days after
losing to Dartmouth. when tests showed the entire squad was infected
with hepatitis.
Dartmouth's proposal is that all football-playing schools in the
National Collegiate Athletic Association contribute $1,000 each to
Holy Cross.
0 WASHINGTON-The Navy Academy announced yesterday it
will appoint a civilian director of athletics-the first in its history-
next year in an effort to rebuild its sports program, especially its
football team.
Rear Admiral Jame.4 Calvert said the academy has decided to
appoint a civilian athletic director because it "is aboslutely essential
if the Naval Academy's program is to catch and overtake those on our
schedule in football and 20 other sports."
