Boston Wins Title in Overtime

Young Girl Swimmers
Favored in AAU Meet




This Thursday 4:15


BOSTON (P)-The incomparable
Boston Celtics captured an un-
precedented fourth consecutive
National Basketball Association
championship last night,Lvan-
quishing the Los Angeles Lakers
110-107 on the heroics of Sam,
Jones and Bill Russell in an over-
time battle.
Boston led most of the way in
the game played before a sellout
crowd of 13,909 in Boston Garden.
But the Celtics had to beat down
the tenacious Lakers in a five
minute overtime session after
Frank Selvy brought Los Angeles
back from the bring of defeat in

the final 40 seconds of regulationz
The Celtics were in dire trouble
because personal fouls late in the
game sent Tom Sanders, Jim Los-F
cutoff and Tom Heinsohn to the
bench. With 74 seconds remain-E
ing Boston was leading 100-96.
Selvy made it 100-98 with 401
seconds and tied the count 20 sec-;
onds later. Selvy barely missed on1
what would have been the winner
with three seconds to go.
Looks Easy
But the world champion Celticsj
made it look easy in the overtime
period. Sam Jones scored five of
Boston's 10 points in the extra se-;
mester and Russell added four,
Bob Cousy getting the other point.
Los Angeles' great Elgin Baylor
had put the Lakers in front 102-
100 with a pair of free throws at;
the outset of the overtime but the
visitors were, shut off until Tom
Hawkins netted a pair of baskets,
in the final minute.
Reports Back
Baylor, who must report back to
his Army 'duties at Ft. Lewis,
Wash., led all scorers with 41
points. Jerry West, who with Bay-
lor sparked the Lakers' fourth
period comeback, had 35.
Probably the greatest single con-
tribution in the game was made
~by the 6'10" Russell, the league's
most valuable player. Big Bill
hauled in 44 rebounds to tie a
playoff record. He also scored 20
Won Three
The Lakers won three straight
NBA crowns from 1952 to 1954
when the franchise was in Min-
neapolis. But never. before had a
team put four titles together as the
Celtics did this season.
The Celtics did it despite a clus-
ter of injuries and their second
half foul troubles. Los Angeles lost
the services of big Rudy Larusso,
Baylor and Jim Krebs in the over-
time period to ease the Boston
Three Foul Out
Larusso went out after 1:45.
Baylor fouled out with two min-
utes left and Krebs followed a

minute later as the score stood at
The game was a gigantic defen-
sive battle after both teams got
away to slow starts.
Baylor didn't sink his first bask-
et until 8:15 of the opening per-
iod and then went cold again i
the third period until the 7:50
mark. West and Baylor combinedj
to bring the Lakers back to a,75-
75 deadlock at the end of three
Boston had the lead up to six
points early in the final frame be-
fore Baylor and Krebs got hot,
West popped three baskets and
Selvy came in with the two tying
"People say the Celtics are the'
greatest basketball team in his-
tory," said Lakers coach Fred'
Schaus, bitterly disappointed at
Los Angeles' near-miss.
"Well, perhaps they are, but if
they are then we're not very far
"Now Frank Ramsey's going to
be overlooked," said a very happy
Jones in the Boston dressing room.!
"But you have to give all. the
credit to Frank.
"I was tight in the first half,
then Frank got ahold of me at
halftime and told me to loosen up.
,It's just another ball game,' he
told me."

CLEVELAND (WP)-Robert S. Ma-
laga, of the U.S. Davis Cup Coin-
mittee, said last night the United
States team will play Canada in
the first round of the American
zone contest in Cleveland July 13-
This- will be the third straight
summer the Davis Cup matches
will be staged here.
Malaga, who will serve as direc-'
tor of the event, said professional
tennis player Pancho Segura has
been hired to coach the U.S. team,
and Bob Kelleher, a 49-year-old
attorney from Los Angeles, has re-
placed David Freed of Salt Lake
City as non-playing captain.
The U.S. feam has not been
picked yet, Malaga said, but the
quartet could come from among
Chuck McKinley, Dennis Ralston,
Don Dell, Jon Douglas, Whitney
Reed and Frank Froehling.

Bradley Beats
Hawkeye Nine
IOWA CITY (IP)-John Fauser's
two-run single in the top of the
ninth inning gave Bradley a 10-8
victory over Iowa today in the
third game of their three-game
series here.
The Braves loaded the bases on
two hits and an error before
Fauser's blow. The Hawkeyes also
followed the three men aboard and
scored two of them before relief
pitcher Jim Troy, who took over
in the eighth, stopped the rally.
The Hawkeyes move to Peoria
tomorrow for a four-game series
against Bradley this weekend. Iowa
won thefirst two games here.

former Sanford football star. Dell,
who lives in Bethesda, Md., has
tried out for a Davis Cup spot be-
fore, but Froehling, a Florida teen-
ager, is making his first bid.
Two years ago here the U.S.
team easilyrdefeated the visitors
from Venezuela. Last August, how-
ever, it was a different story.
Mexico led 2-1 at the end of
the second day, but McKinley and
Bernard (Tut) Bartzen of Dallas
rallied to sweep the final pair of
singles matches for the American
victory in the zone finals.
Those singles victories came aft-
er a stormy duobles match that
McKinley and Ralston lost. Ral-
ston later was suspended by the
U.S. Tennis Association for his be-
havior in that match.

Rated Tossup
BOSTON (P)-A darkhorse has
not won the Boston A.A. Marathon
since the days of prohibition. But
though Eino Oksanen and Paavo
Pystynen of Finland and Johnny
Kelly of Groton, Conn., are rated
the runners to beat today, any-
thing could happen.
Oksanen and Kelley, both 31,
also are both former winners.
Oksanen won in 1959 and last
year, beating Kelley over the-final
mile on both occasions.
Kelley, a teacher, set the ad-
justed course record in 1957, being
clocked in 2:20.05.
Pystynen, a drill sergeant in a
cavalry unit of the Finnish army,
is entering the Hopkinton to Bos-
ton run for the first time. But the
31-year-old Laplander is Finland's
10,000 meter champion and has a
2:23.11 marathon to his credit.
