State was named the top team
and then was upset in the early
NCAA eliminations. California,
ranked 11th, beat Cincinnati in
the semifinals and then edged
West Virginia for the title.
Another meeting between Cincy
and Cal would set up the game of
the year for the hardwood sport.
This is the first time Cincin-

them all and it's only the third
time the Bearcats have made the
elite top ten. It all started with

DETROIT-The suddenly come-
alive Detroit Red Wings caught
goalie Jacques Plante without his
famous face mask last night and
blanked the National Hockey
League Champion Montreal Cana-
Plante was unmasked for the
first time since he put on the con-
troversial protective device in a
regular game Nov. 1 at New York.
Without it the Montreal netmind-
er appeared shaky and the Wings
ended a 15-game winless streak
against Montreal on their home
Olympia Stadium ice.
Unsung Len Lunde delighted the
home crowd of 13,345 by scoring
once and assisting on another goal
as the Wings strengthened their
position for a berth in the Stanley.
Detroit pulled into a third-place
tie with idle Chicago, eight points
ahead of the Boston Bruins, who
are virtually out of the running.
Norm Ullman put Detroit ahead
1-0 in the first period after Lunde
dug the puck out and flipped it to;

FACTURING for students with the
Since its inception nearly 23 years ago,
the Jet Propulsion Laboratory has given
the free world itsfirst tactical guided mis-
sile system, its first earth satellite, and
its first lunar probe.
In the future, under the direction of the
National Aeronautics and Space Admin-
istration, pioneering on the space fron
tier will advance at an accelerated rate.
The preliminary instrument explora-
tions that have already been made only
seem to define how much there is yet
to be learned. During the next few years,
payloads will become larger, trajectories
will become more precise, and distances
covered will become greater. Inspections
will be made of the moon and the plan-
ets and of the vast distances of inter7
planetary space; hard and soft landings
will be made in preparation for the time
when man at last sets foot on new worlds.
In this program, the task of JPL is to
gather new information for a better un-
derstanding of the World and Universe.
