Butts In First Libel Suit Steps

Loyola Upsets Cincy in Overtime Battle

neys for Alabama football Coach
Paul Bryant demanded yesterday
that the Saturday Evening Post
retractwan article in the current
issue which charges Bryant with
conspiring to rig a football game.
The attorneys released a letter
which was sent to Curtis Publish-

The demand for a retraction is

required by Alabama law as a pre-
liminary to filing libel action for
punitive damages.

He also has demanded a retrac-

The article charges that Butts,'
then athletic director, revealed
Georgia secrets to Bryant before
the Alabama - Georgia football
game last Sept. 22.
Both have denied the charge,

in the conference next fall.

credible Loyola of Chicago won
the National Collegiate Basketball
Championship last night, dethron-
ing two-time champion Cincinnati
60-58 on a tip-in by Vic Rouse

In becoming the first at-large
team to win an NCAA title in 13
years, George Ireland's remark-
able Ramblers overcame a 15-
point second half deficit, caught
the top-rated Bearcats at the wire

on a jump shot by All-America
Jerry Harkness, then scaled the
heights of college basketball when
the 6'6" Rouse came up with a
perfect follow to a 10-foot jump
shot by Les Hunter.
Old Buddies
Rouse and Hunter were high
school teammates in Nashville,
Tenn., and came to Loyola as a
sort of bonus from a high school
coach theie.
Another sellout crowd of 19,153
that sat on its hands during a'

ragged third place game won by
Duke over Oregon State 85-3
roared throughout the gruelling,
never-give-an-inch title battle be-
tween two tremendous teams.
Loyola, third-ranked nationally
and playing in the NCAA for the
first time, got 'the impetus it
needed when Cincinnati decided
to sit on a 15-point lead with 11
minutes, 45 seconds remaining.
The Bearcats of Ed Jucker, seek-
ing an unprecedented t h i r d
straight championship, slowed

things down so much that they
scored only two field goals in the
last four minutes of play. With
Harkness steadily peppering away
after a miserable first half, Loy-
ola gradually cut into what looked
like a safe lead.
Fast Finish
With 4:29 remaining, Harkness
hit his first field goal and his
fourth and fifth points of the
game. He wound up with 14 points
Cincinnati, losing only its sev-
enth game in 89 games played un-
der Jucker in three years, still
had a three-point lead at 53-50
with 45 seconds left in regulation
time, and was two points ahead
when little Larry Shingleton sank
the first free throw on a one-and-
one bonus situation with 12 sec-
onds to go.
But Shingleton missed the sec-
ond. The leaping Ramblers grab-
bed the rebound and Harkness
flew down the court, let fly from
the side about 10 feet frpm the
basket and got Loyola even for'
the first time since the first three'
minutes of the game.
Streak In
In the overtime, Harkness grab-
bed the ball on the tip-off and
streaked in for an easy shot for
a 56-54 Loyola lead. Cincinnati's
George Wilson tied it at 56-56 with
a twisting, close-in shot. With
three minutes left, Ron Miller's

25-foot jump shot put Loyola two
points ahead again.
Toh Thacker fed Shingleton a
court-length pass against a Loy-
ola pressing defense for a layup
with 2:15 showing on the clock
and it was 58-all.
Loyola, winding up with a 29-2
record, tried to control the ball
for one final shot but Shingleton
forced a jump ball against John
Egan at 1:21 and it came down
to which of the two 5'10" guys-
the smallest men on a court of
bounding, leaping kids-could con-
trol the tip.
It turned out to be Loyola, Mill-
er grabbing the ball in a race
with Tony Yates and the Ramblers
stalled out until Hunter's final
shot and Rouse's tremendous leap
and tip-in.

panded the margin to 20 points
early in the second half and
coasted in.

Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING -Unheralded
Adrian, loser of four games in the
regular season, saw its string of
state tournament upsets end here
last night as a rugged Ferndale
squad clobbered them, 76-58, to
win the state Class A basketball
River Rouge won its third
straight Michigan Class B crown
over Hudsonville Christian Unity,
59-49. New Buffalo and Britton
Macon took the honors in Classes
C and D for the first time in each
school's history, both by identical
59-58 scores.
The tall Ferndale team, with
three 6'3" starters dominated the
rebounding to end any Adrian
hopes of a state title. The Eagles
grathered in 65 rebounds to Ad-
rian's 38.
The game was quite a change
for Ferndale as its last three vic-
tories were by one point. Friday
night Ferndale came from behind
to nip Detroit Northwestern, but
tonight's game was another story.
The Eagles scored 25 points in
the second quarter after a first
period lead of 19-15 to put the
game out of Adrian's reach.
Ferndale controlled the boards
and Adrian was just worn into
the ground by the tough board-
play. Bruce Rodwan, the Ferndale
center who is the only junior on
the starting team, and substitute
Louis Smith, also a junior. each
scored seven points in the first
five minutes of the second period.
The Leader
Rodwan led both teams in scor-
ing and rebounding. He pulled
down 20 rebounds and pumped in
25 points. Two other Ferndale
starters hit double figures. Tru-

man McNeal had 14 points and
Bob Falardeau scored 13. Falar-
deau also collected 15 rebounds.
Both teams had practically the
same shooting percentages. But
Ferndale took 24 more shots from
the floor in scoring their 30 field
goals. Adrian shot 40 per cent
which six per cent less than in
their upset victory over previously
unbeaten Saginaw Arthur Hill
Friday night.
The Maples fell behind by as
many as eight points in the first
quarter. But by the end of the per-
iod Adrian had closed the gap to
only four points. The second quar-
ter scoring splurge for Ferndale
cinched the victory. The Eagles
coasted to victory in the second
half by outscoring Adrian by only
three points, in the last half.
First Crown
This was Ferndale's first state
basketball championship. T h e
Eagles won only their second reg-
ional title last weekend. Their!
previous regional title was in 1949
and this year's team was the first
to make it past the quarterfinals.
Ferndale ended the season withn
a 22-0 record, the only unbeaten
Class A team in the state.
Senior Bill Dunston led River'
Rouge with 16 points in Rouge's
fifth trip to the state finals in five
years. All four othre Rouge start-
ers are juniors, including 6'6"
Class B All-State center Willie
Maintain Lead
River Rouge led from the mid-
dle of the first quarter until the
end of the game. However, the
lead was never more than 12
points at any time.
Rouge reached its biggest mar-
gin of the game at 2:10 of the
third period. The score was 38-26
and it looked like the Rouge pow-
erhouse was finally starting to
pull away.
But Hudsonville wasn't ready to
give up. Jerry Terpstra drove in
for a bucket, hit on a jump shot
and san two free throws to make
the score 38-32 at the end of three
At the start of the fourth per-
iod, Lee Dykema made two free
throws and Terpstra put in an-
other jumper to close the gap to
two points. Rouge took control'
from then on and never allowed
Hudsonville to get within four
points on its total.

Rouge had three players in
double figures and Hudsonville
had four. Dunston was high with
16 points for Rouge followed by
teammates Willie Betts with 13
and Larry Brazon with 15. Terp-
stra was high for his team with 15.
Britton Macon won its first
state Class D championship and
closed out a perfect 23-0 season
record by edging Nagaunee St.
Paul, 59-58.
The lead switched back and
forth between the two teams in
the first half before St. Paul went
ahead at halftime, 30-29. Britton
tried to catch up throughout the
third quarter but didn't tie the
score until midway in the last
Britton fought to take the lead
but couldn't pull ahead until
there were 36 seconds left. A tip-
in put them ahead and another
seconds later put them in a 58-54
A Britton free throw put the
game out of reach with seven Fec-
onds remaining. St. Paul's Dom-
inic Jacobetti raced down' the
court to put the ball in the hoop
without opposition as the buzzer
With 6'8" Class D All-State cen-
ter Phil Benedict and a 6'7" for-
ward, Britton won the rebound
battle 68-37. But St. Paul out-
shot Britton 40 per cent to 34 per
cent -to make the game a close
New Buffalo and Houghton,
two teams which finished second
in their leagues during the regu-
lar season, battled it out for the
Class C championship, with New
Buffalo coming from behind to
win, 59-58.

Moore's chances for survival are
still "very doubtful . . . very much
less than 50-50," a team of doctors
told newsmen last night.
While T'oore, 29-year-old ex-
featherweight champion, clung to
life in a nearby room, three spe-
cialists met with newsmen at
White Memorial Hospital and gave
these opinions:
1) It appeared that the damage
to the boxer's brain stem resulted
from a fall rather than a punch
or even a series of punches.
2) A bruise to the brain does
not swell immediately, and this
could explain why Moore didn't
lose consciousness for nearly an
hour Thursday night after his
10th-round knockout by Sugar
Ramos, the new featherweight
3) Surgery was not performed
because there was no hemorrhage
that necessitated an operation.,
Even if surgery had been indi-
cated, Moore's condition was so
precarious that none of the con-

sulting specialists felt he could
have survived it.
The doctors reported this slight
encouragement: Moore's toes mov-
ed for the first time when the
soles of his feet were tickled. His
blood pressure was up from 90 to
100, also a hopeful sign. His body
temperature was 94 degrees, well
below the normal.
In response to a question by
Mrs. Aileen Eaton, co-promoter
of the tripleheader championship
bouts in which Moore was injured,
the doctors said it was possible,
but not probable, that Moore sus-
tained the injury before the fight.
None of the three physicians-
Drs. Kenneth H. Abbott, Phillip
J. Vogel and Cyril B. Courville-
saw the fight. They said they
were trying to arrange a screen-
ing of the fight to pinpoint the
events that led to Moore's col-
The ex-champ's manager, Willie
Ketchum, told newsmen he didn't
recall that Moore's head hit the
floor, ring post or rope during the
However, the doctors agreed that
a bruise such as Moore sustained
is apt to happen when the head
is in motion and hits a solid ob-
In the event that Moore recovers
his mental pOwers probably would
not be affected.

weight Alejandro Lavorante, they

scious six months ago. He has

Lutheran Hospital since.

thoroughly outplayed an out-man-
ned Canisius club.
Providence, winner of the NIT
in 1961 with some of the same
players, posted its 15th consecu-
tive victory.
Getting the bulk of its scoring
from Ray Flynn, voted the tour-
nament's Most Valuable Player,
and Jim Stone, the Friars hustled
into a commanding lead by the
midway point of the second half.
Chinese Wall
T h e i r Chinese defense - a
scrambling combination of man-
to-man and zone - completely
shattered a Canisius attack that
had been so impressive earlier.
The Providence defense forced
Canisius outside and when the
Griffins' marksmanship fell off it
turned into a rout. The taller
Providence inside men, 6'11" John
Thompson and 6'8" Bob Koval-
ski, so controlled the backboards
in the breakaway second half that
Canisius seldom got more than
one chance.
Added to this was the all-around
quick-handed hustle of the Friars,
which resulted in many steals and
Warriors Romnp
NEW YORK (R) - Marquette's
long-range bombing Warriors flew
away from Villanova in the second
half and beat the Wildcats 66-58
for third place in the National
Invitation Basketball Tournament
Marquette, led by back court
sharpshooter Ron Glaser, broke
open its tight game against Vil-
lanova with 14 minutes to go. With
the score 48-44, the Warriors con-
sistently outfought and outshot
the Philadelphians and went into
a comfortable lead.
. Glaser was high man in the
game with 26 points for the War-
riors, who were remarkably effi-
cient outside. The 6'3" guard fin-
ished the tournament with 69
points in three games as third-
seeded Marquette finished with a
20-9 record.
