Hawks Challenge Warriors
As Money Awaits Winners

for the Western playoff cham-
pionship of the National Basket-
ball Association and the basket
of cash going with it, the St.
Louis Hawks battle the San Fran-
cisco Warriors tonight at the Cow
Palace in the decider of their
seven-game series.
Awaiting in the wings to see
who'll break the 3-3 tie are' the
Boston Celtics, the defending NBA
champs who won the Eastern play-
offs from the Cincinnati Royals a
week ago.
The Celtics reportedly are in-
censed over the long wait.
"Nonesense," says General Man-
ager Bob Foorick of the Warriors.
"The rest gives them the advant-
age over either of us who must
play tonight and then be in Bos-
ton to open the finals on Saturday

night. And the Celtics know it."
As the Hawks and Warriors go
into their deciding game before
an anticipated crowd of 10,000,
Wilt Chamberlain must be the
big man no matter how you look
at his 7-foot 1-inch height.
For if the Hawks can check his
shooting, they'll probably win
since the other Warriors haven't
been consistent with outside shoot-
ing. In setting defenses, the vis-
itors will have two or even three
harrassing Wilt.
At stake in the cash depart-
ment tonight is a purse of $12,500
for the winning team against
$10,000 for the loser. That differ-
ence isn't so great but the winner
goes into the final playoff where
the purses will be $25,000 and
Through six playoff games,
Chamberlain leads the scoring
with 215 ponts and has grabbed
143 rebounds. Bob Pettit and
Richie Guerin of the Hawks each
have scored 126. Tom Meschery
ranks as the No. 2 San Francisco
shooter with 103 despite playing
with a broken little finger on his
right hand.
"We can win if we just play our
game," declared Coach Alex Han-
num who directed the hustle and
muscle offense to the Western
title during the regular season.
St. Louis possesses the finesse
and -the defense devised by Coach
Harry Gallatin to sag two or three
Hawks around Chamberlain when
the big guy gets near the basket.
The strategy worked last Sun-
day night in St. Louis when the
Hawks breazed to a 123-94 victory
after losing at the Cow Palace
121-97 in the fifth game.

staffs, like the fraternities, ex-
amine the available prospects and
decide which ones they want.
Then they fiercely compete for
the cream of the crop, trying to
show the youngsters why their
school is the one for them.
But the battle for talented preps
is keener than anything even the
fraternities might imagine.
It's not rare for as many as 100
schools to be after some of the
boys. With this kind of compe-
tition, salesmanship obviously
plays a big part. Head Coach
Bump Elliott pointed out that a
coach must be a good recruiter in
addition to his other duties.
Personal Visits
According to Big Ten rules, a
Vniversity official is allowed to
make one personal visit to the
prospect's home. At this time he
not only tries to explain to the
boy and his parents why the
school he represents is the best
one for him, but also usually in-
Star Gonzales
To Phiy Again
tennis star Pancho Gonzales an-
nounced yesterday he is retiring
to the professional wars, ending a,
retirement of almost three years.
Now 35, Gonzales said he would
compete in the full series of pro
tournaments mapped out by the
International Professional Tennis
Players Association starting May
19 at Washington, D.C.
The Los Angeles-born Pancho
has played in only one, tourna-
ment since November, 1961. He
lost to Alex Olmedo at Forest Hills
last summer.
Jack Kramer, former promoter
of the pros who had numerous
disagreements with Gonzales, is
the Los Angeles advisor of the new
At Pancho's coming-out lunch-
eon yesterday, both agreed they
had buried past differences.
"We sat down and talked it over
about two weeks ago. Everything's
fine," said Gonzales. "Now that
he's not a promoter anymore,
Jack can see some things in a
different light."

vites the boy to visit the college
When a prospect visits the
Michigan campus, one of the pri-
mary goals of the coaching staff
is to impress him with the fact
that he will be getting a good edu-
cation at Michigan. According to
several gridders, Michigan offers
both top quality football and edu-
cational standards.
The visiting prospects are also
shown the athletic department
and its facilities. Although the
thought of playing in mammoth
Michigan Stadium might tempt
some preps, Michigan's biggest
asset from the athletic point of
view is Coach Elliott.
Prospective Visits
While touring the campus, pros-
pective football players spend
some of their time talking with
Elliott. Many current football
players say that the opinion of
Elliott they developed during
such meetings was one of the
main factors in their decision to
attend Michigan.
When not with the coaching
staff, the prospective athlete is
usually with a present Michigan
player. A visiting student is shown
the campus by a member of the
football team in order to obtain
a students' eye view of Michigan.
Michigan has several advant-
ages that help attract talented
high schoolers, but there are dis-
advantages here as well.
Some preps who wish to come
here without ever being recruited
must be told that their low scho-
lastic average makes it impossible
for Michigan to consider them for
an athletic scholarship.,
Canham Viewpoint
Another handicap could be the
new . trimester system. Track
Coach Don Canham is of the opin-
ion that the short spring track
season would discourage some
football prospects who are in-
terested in track competition from
coming to Michigan.
Football Coach Elliott is less
specific. He concedes, "The tri-
mester could be an issue, but it's
too early to tell yet!'
Elaborating, Elliott points out,
"The short. spring season could
discourage a football prospect in-
terested in any spring sport, not
only track."
Another problem which could
result from the trimester con-
cerns midyear graduates.
This year Michigan has two
players who came to Michigan at
the beginning of the second se-
mester, but both of them had to
have special permission to leave
high school two weeks before they
actually graduated.
Calendar Changes
In the years to come, other
calendar changes will move the


beginning of the Michigan spring
semester farther away from, the
close of a high school first se-
mester. Elliott feels that in the
future this discrepancy might
make it impossible for Michigan
to recruit midyear graduates. {
Elliott is also still very much
concerned with completing the re-
cruiting' for next year's squad.
Thus far, he has only signed 18
of the 30 players he is allowed
according to Big Ten rules. The
Western Conference allows each
team to apply up to five of any
unused scholarships for the next
year. Elliott tries to fill most' of
the spots each year if the talent
is available.
Huff Ees
NEW YORK P) -- Sam Huff,
old No. 70 of the New York Giants,
still has not made up his mind
about playing football for the
Washington Redskins
"This is the biggest decision of
my life," the 29-year-old line-
backer said yesterday; a week af-
ter being involved in the major
National Football League trade.
"There are a lot of problems. In
the long run my future is in the
business world.
"I am not going to be like all
the others who say, they are quit-
ting and then start getting Itchy
about July 1 and retracting every-
thing. I want to think it out first
and be sure I am making the
right decision."
