Poor Refureeing,'
Schaus Charges

ST. LOUiIS MA) A charge by
Los Angeles coach Fred Schaus
that referee Jim Duffy's work
hurt his team in the pro basket-
ball Western playoff drew this
retort yesterday from St. Louis
Hawks owner Ben Kerner :
"Schaus is a big crybaby--he's
always been one."
The Hawks and Lakers are down
to the 'deciding 4eventh game in
the National Basketball Associa-
tion Western final. The winner of
the title game tomorrow at St.
Louis will move into the NBA's
world series against the Boston
Celtics, Eastern titlist and defend-
ing league king. The game will
be televised nationally,
Schaus, former West Virginia
coach in his first season as an
NBA headman, bitterly attacked

NEW YORK P) - Jack Kent
Cooke, owner of the Toronto In-
ternational League baseball club,
denied yesterday that he had
made an offer to buy the Cincin-
nati Reds.
Cooke told the New York Her-
ald-Tribune that reports he had
made such an offer with the in-
tention of moving the franchise to
Toronto were without foundation.
He said, however, that he had
discussed the situation with sev-
eral interested parties..
Cooke was reached by telephone
in Daytona Beach, Fla., where his
Toronto Maple Leafs are in train-

Duffy as "incompetent" after the
Hawks won a 114-113 overtime
thriller at Los Angeles before 14,-
"Imagine Jim Duffy working all
six games . . when the fans of
St. Louis held a 'Jim Duffy night'
and showered him with $1,000
worth of gifts," Schaus roared.
"Why take him off the seventh
game. Why wait for the seventh
'Complete Misrepresentation'
Kerner branded this a "com-
plete misrepresentation." He said
the night for Duffy was a gag-
and was announced as such. He
"As for Duffy-why, Just last
year we demanded he not work
the deciding seventh game at Bos-
ton-because Boston insisted on
having him. But, of course, Schaus
wasn't even in the league then."
Duffy did work the seventh
game at Boston last year, despite
a heated midnight conference in
St. Louis after the sixth game.
NBA president Maurice Podo-
loff said the officials for the sev-
enth game here won't be announc-
ed until tomorrow. But Podoloff is
said to have decided on Mendy
Rudolph and Sid Borgia.
Murderer's Row
The night for Duffy, held in
St. Louis last Oct. 16, grew out of
Duffy's own remarks that "when
you work in St. Louis it's a real
murderer's row. Kerner and his
cohorts sit on the first row and
he's up protesting everything."
. Kerner then nicknamed those
in the first row-doctors, lawyers,
city officials - as "murderer's
row," issued 62 special member-
ship cards and gave Duffy a night.
As for the series, it's been a'
strange one, with each club win-
ning two of three on the other's

Southern Cal
Stars Break
AAU Marks
NEW HAVEN (R) - Charley
Bittick and Murray Rose, Southern
California's brilliant swimmers,
broke records last night in the
two races opening the three-day
National AAU indoor swimming
and diving championships.
Bittick captured the 400-yard
individual medley in American re-
cord time of 4:23.7, and Rose
cracked the meet mark in the
1,500-meter freestyle, winning in
Both won impressively, Rose by
15 meters from Indiana's Alan
Somers in Yale's 50-meter pool,
and Bittick by five yards in the
25-yard tank.,
The 21-year-old Bittick beat the
old mark of 4:28.6 set last year by
George Harrison of Stanford. Rose
erased the old meet standard of
18:00.8 recorded here a year ago
by George Breen. Neither Harri-
son or Breen were on the scene to
see the fireworks.
Bittick, the Trojans' team cap-
tain, finished in front of Ted
Stickles, Indiana freshman who
led momentarily near the home
stretch. Next were Dennis Roun-
savelle of Southern Cal., Gary
Heinrich of Cincinnati, John
House of the Trojans and John
Roethke of Indiana.
After battling the 22-year-old
Rose for 21 laps, Somers faded
under the Australian's sizzling
pace and barely finished in front
of Roy Saari of El Segundo, Calif.,
who was third.
Brian Foes, Southern California
freshman, was next, followed by
Yale's Bill Chase and the Indiana-
polis Rivera Club's Eddie King.
The 1500 was decided on the
fastest times, and all but King
battled it out in fifth and final
Rose won as expected by him
and his coach, Pete Daland. Both
said they hoped it was the start
of a third straight triple in this
meet for the blond star. Rose
scored in 1958 and 1959.

INCAA Basketball Remnatch

COLUMBUS (P),-- It could be-
come a habit-Ohio State and
Cincinnati meeting for the NCAA
basketball championship.
Talent-laden squads will be
back next season for the Bearcats
and the Bucks, and both would
like a rematch for the cage crown
following Cincinnati's 70-65 over-
time win last Saturday.
The result ended the 27-game
winning streak for the Bucks who
had led the Associated Press poll
all season. And it catapulted the
'Cats, second in the ratings, to
their first national crown with
the Bucks relinquishing the
The final buzzer didn't halt the
rivalry, and the upset still is a
torrid topic. Post-game pyrotech-
nics are still being fired.

Tape Recorder Joins

Around Cincinnati, thing are
really hot. Buckeye Gov. Michael
V. Disalle was hanged in effigy in
front of some of the Bearcat fra-
ternity houses for ignoring the
eyes "the all-America team with
the all-America coaches" in a post-
game statement.
Three Returnees Each
Three starters from each team
will be back next season, and some
towering, talented newcomers are
ready to move into the vacancies.
Cincinnati loses only Bob Wie-
senhahn and Carl Bouldin, but
retains 240-pound 6-9 Paul Hogue,
6-2 Tom Thacker and 6-0 Tony
Hottest freshman prospect is
Ron Bonham of Muncie, Ind., a
6-8 giant who led his team in scor-
ing with a 26-8 average. He's the
only Cincy freshman, with the
exception of all-America Oscar
Robinson, to score over 400 points
as a frosh. Bonham could move
right into a satrting berth, along
with George Wilson, a 6-8 fresh-
man from Chicago who averaged
23.4 and 19.1 on rebounds.
Buckeye Fresh
The Bucks lose Capt. Larry
Siegfried and Richie Hoyt from
the starting corps-but returnees
will be the incomparable Lucas,
newly-elected captain John Hav-
licek, and outside shooting marvel
Mel Nowell.
Gary Gearhart, an all-Ohio high
schooler, and Bobby Knight saw
plenty of action this year but may
have to move aside for some of
the up-coming talent.
Ready to make a scrap "for the
vacancies are such all-Ohio stand-
outs as 6-8 Gene Lane of Cleve-
land. East Tech's 1958-59 state
high school champions; 6-8 Gary
Bradds, who figures to succeed
Lucas after next season; Leroy
Frazier, a 6-4 sharpshooter; Ray
Brown, 6-5, who was rated Ohio's
top schoolboy star last year; and
a flock of others who can reach
the ceiling.

To Perform
In Trinidad
Wolverine track coach Don Can-
ham plans a busy spring vacation
for his squad, with a group of five
going to Trinidad for the East
Caribbean Games and returning
to Athen, Ohio, for the University
Canham will take Tom Robin-
son, Big Ten sprint king, Bennie
McRae, hurdles champ, Ergas
Leps, outdoor mile titlist, and Dick
Cephas, hurdler, to Trinidad for
the games on Saturday and Sun-
day, April 1-2.
Also in the games will be teams
from a number of South and Cen-
tral American countries.
The five will fly back to Athens
April 5 for the Relays which will
take place April 8. The rest of the
Wolverine varsity will join them
In Athens, the team will be fav-
ored, since its competition will be
mainly from Western Michigan
and Ohio University, with Ohio
State not being especially power-
ful, according to assistant track
coach Elmer Swanson. This is the
first year Michigan has competed
in the meet, facing representatives
from fifteen to twenty schools.
Good performances can be ex-
pected from the four mentioned

MESA, Ariz. OM)-And now a
tape recorder has been added to
the electronic arsenal of the Chi-
cago Cubs, who this season will be
guided by a board of coaches and
an IBM machine.
Just before yesterday's 8-0 Cub
loss to San Francisco, rookie
catcher Dick Bertell was scratched
from the starting lineup and vet-
eran Sammy Taylor's name in-
But it wasn't just a routine
Bertell was summoned to sit
next to coach El Tappe, former
catcher and a ranking brain of
the "managerless" Cub strategy
team. Next to both was a tape-
Thus was recorded Tappe's com-
ments on every field situation as it
developed. Furthermore, the tape
was replayed during a postgame
meeting of the nine Cub coaches.

This permitted other coaches to
add their own comments.
Commented Bertell, who along
with Cuno Barragan, is rated a top
young catching prospect:
"While I learned a lot just sit-
ting with Tappe, I really gained
more from the replay of the tape.
It's a lot easier to remember some-
thing when you are listening to it
in silence than in the hub-hub of
the dugout."
Negro Plays
NORFOLK (A') -An integrated
public high school used a Negro in
a varsity interscholastic athletic
event for the first time in Virginia
history today.

HERE'S HOW--Michigan's latest All-American, hockey star Red
Berenson, has been at it a longtime. Pictured here at the ripe old
age ┬░of three, the "Redhead" had already been indoctrinated into
the game near his Regina, Sask. home. Since coming to Michigan
Berenson has been the key to the Wolverine squad. This past year
he led the team in all phases of scoring, and was among the
leaders in the WCHA. He's currently a first-semester junior and
will return to lead Michigan's ice wars again next year.

distinct possibility yesterday fol-

Both men referred to their

Durocher admitted, however,
that Paul had advised him he
