Braves' Soph Star Drugged
Before Semi-Final Game

Michigan Tech Wins, 13-3,
In NCAA Hockey Tourney


By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-Sophomore Chet
Walker, feared drugged before
the game, scored 27 points in 23
minutes of play last night and-
fired top-seeded Bradley into the
finals of the N~.ational Invitation
Basketball Tournament with an
82-71 decision that snapped St.
Bonaventure's 18-game winning
Unseeded Providence j o i n e d

point halftime lead before storm-
Len Wilkens and Jim Hadnot for
ing back behind Johnny Egan,
a 68-62 victory over second-seed-
ed Utah State. The doubleheader
drew a capacity crowd of 18,496
to Madison Square Garden.
Walker, a 6-foot-7 sophomore,
from Benton Harbor, who leads
Bradley in scoring, drank a glass
of orange juice delivered to his
midtown hotel room by an un-
known person yesterday. He be-
came sick shortly thereafter and
Coach Chuck Orsborn reported
the incident to police. A test of
the juice turned up no suspicious
elements but the outcome was
not known until after the game.
Meanwhile, Orsborn kept shuttling
Walker in and out of the lineup
for examination and treatment
and the youngster responded with
a brilliant performance when he
Saunders also drank the juice but
was on the court. Bradley's Al
was not affected.
Walker, who munched pills to
relieve nausea during the game,
had 18 points as the Braves rode
to a 42-37 halftime lead. He got
these although he spent seven of
the 20 minutes in the dressing
room or on the bench. He came
back twice for a total of 10 min-

utes after the intermission and
added nine points, five in a game-
breaking effort when the Bonnies
rallied to within six points, at
69-63 with four minutes to play.
With Walker's play limited, an-
other sophomore, 6'5" Mack
Herndon of Chicago, gave the
Braves a big helping hand with
22 points, 16 of them in the sec-
ond half. Between the two big
tophs, St. Bonaventure gradually
The pesky Providence Friars,
who raced into a 36-26 lead at the
half, lost their touch in the first
eight minutes after the intermis-
sion, and Utah State fought back
to a 42-42 tie.
In another three minutes the
Aggies built a 49-47 lead before
the Friars from Rhode Island
found themselves and regained
the lead.
They built it to 57-51, saw that
chopped to 57-56, then pulled
away as Hadnot hit five points
and clutch guys Egan and Wilk-
ens two apiece in the last three
Hadnot, a sleepy-eyed 6'-10"
soph, made it 59-56 on a rebound
at 2:10. Egan drove in for a lay-
up to make it 61-56 30 seconds
later, and three free throws by
Hadnot offset a pair by Tyler Wil-
bon and made it 64-58 with 33
seconds left.
After Utah State pulled with-
in four again, Wilkens wrapped it
up with a pair of free throws with
11 seconds left.'
Wilkens led the Friars with 18
points. Egan had 16 and Hadnot
10, plus 13 big rebounds. Cornell
Green and Dick Schofield had 19'
apiece for the Aggies who wound
up with a 23-5 record.

BOSTON - Michigan Tech,
thanks to some skillful Canadians,
skated rings around St. Lawrence
University last night, whipping the
Larries 13-3 in a semifinal game
of the NCAA hockey tournament,
Michigan Tech will play for the
National Title Saturday night
against the winner of tonight's
game between Denver and Boston
Louis Angotti, 21-year-old soph-
omore from Toronto, and Gerry
Fabbro, a junior from Trail, B.C.,
each registered hockey's three-
goal hat trick in powering the
midwestern team to victory.
The Larries played Michigan
Tech on even 1-1 terms until
early in the second period when
the roof fell in. Michigan Tech
scored eight goals in that middle
session to put the game far out of
the Larries' reach. The winners
added four more in the finale.
Michigan Tech's other big point
men were John Kosiancic of Kim-
berley, B.C., with a goal and three
assists and Paul Coppo of Han-
cock, Mich., with a goal and four
Also getting goals for the boys,
from Houghton were Al Raymond,

gan Tech's high flying Huskies, helped his team to an easy 13-3
win over St. Lawrence with a goal and three assists. The Huskies

who pumped in two, Gerry Sulivan
with two, and Don Lauriente. The
Huskies' all around balance was
too much for the eastern team.
MON''REAL (R) - Toronto
Maple Leafs last night out-skated
and out - checked the Montreal
Canadiens to take a 6-2 National
Hockey League victory before 14,-
Toronto's goals against Mon-
treal goalie Jacques Plante dead-
locked him with Chicago Goalie
Glenn Hall in the Vezina Trophy
race. The trophy is decided on the
least goals scored against an NHL
goal-tender. Each has allowed 174,
with two games to play.
Garry Edmundson led Toronto
with two goals.
The other Leaf goals were by
Dick Duff, Carl Brewer, Frank
Mahovlich and, Red Kelly.
For the Canadiens, Marcel Bon-
in scored halfway through the sec-
ond period and $Bernie' (Boom
Boom) Geoffrion notched his 30th
goal in the third period.
It was Canadiens' first loss on
home ice since Dec. 12 when De-
troit won 3-2. Since then they had
won 14 and tied four in the Mon-
treal Forum. The victory was Tor-
onto's first at Montreal this sea-
Toronto checked the Canadiens
closely all night, and Montreal,
except for a couple of brief spurts,
never seemed to threaten seriously
in the Leaf tone.

Clark Picked in Breaststroke

Lakers Surprise Haws
To Even NBA Playoffs

ST. LOUIS (W- - Led by Elgin.
Baylor's 40 points, the Minneapolis
Lakers stunned the overconfident
St. Louis Hawks with a last quarter
drive for a 120-113 victory last
night, squaring the Western title
playoff series 1-1.
Bidding to upset the regular
season National Basketball Asso-
ciation Western champs for the
second straight year, the deter-
mined Lakers were never headed
once they grabbed their first lead
of the ballgame, 7:47 from the
wire. ,

(Editors Note: This is the second
of a Aeries about the upcoming
NCAA Swim - Championships.)
Nearly all of the 14 individual
events in the upcoming NCAA
swim championships are rated
tossups, but if experts were asked
to name the one swimmer most
likely to win the consensus would
undoubtedly favor Michigan's Ron
Clark in the 200-yard breast-
The reason Clark has earned
this distinction is quite obvious.
At the beginning of the col-
legiate swim season the NCAA
and American record for the 200-
yard breaststroke was held by
Miami of Ohio's Bill Mulliken,
at 2:21.3.
Breaks Record
Clark reduced that mark by
two seconds February 1, and then
lowered it another 1.8 seconds in
the Big Ten Championships,
March 5.
Indian'a coach Dr. Jim Coun-
silman, one of the nation's top

The Hawks were coasting along
with a lead ranging from three to
11 points and were in front by 10,
90-80, with 1:27 left in the third
quarter when Minneapolis started
its winning drive.
Former Hawk Frank Selvy,
showing almost every shot in the
book in a 22-point night, wiggled
past the Hawks for three straight
layups to close the gap 90-86 at
the third quarter mark.
Then Jim Pollard's club tied the
score three times at 93, 95 and 96


coaches and an old breaststroke
champion himself, said "Clark's
time of 2:17.4 is the outstanding
achievement in American swim-
ming so far this year. He stands
alone at the top of the field."
This comment is even more re-
markable in light of the fact that
Counsilman has a swimmer of
his own, Mike Troy, who has
lowered the American standard in
the 200-yard butterfly by 3.1 sec-
On the basis of these record
breaking performances Clark, al-
so the AAU Outdoor champion,
is currently rated America's num-
ber one breaststroke hope in the
Olympics this summer.
Fastest in Nation
Though he finished six seconds
ahead of his nearest competitor
in the Big Ten meet and has
swum faster than any one else in
the nation this season, Clark is
not without competition.
Mulliken, on hand again, has
not turned in any spectacular
times this year, 'but the Pan
American champion can be count-
ed on to offer stiff competition
for Clark at Dallas.
Fred Munsch of Long Island, a
teammate of Clark's on the AAU
team which toured Japan last
summer, was clocked in slightly
over 2:20 two weeks ago.
Gordon Collet of Oklahoma, the
nation's best at 100-yards, may
be able to go a strong 200, al-
though he has reportedly been ill
in the last month.
Charles Griffin of Navy, a for-
mer American record holder for
the event, and Indiana's Gerry
Miki have been clocked in 2:23.4
and could do considerably better
in Dallas.
Hood. Times
Norbert Rumpel of Southern
Illinois and Tom Winters of
Southern California have not re-
corded good times, but both have
displayed championship form.
In the 100-yard breaststroke
the same cast will be on hand,
but Clark's best time in this sprint
race is nearly a half-second be-
hind Collet's record and the Wol-

verine star may not be able to
catach the quick starting Sooner.
The one thing in Michigan's
favor in the breaststroke is that
Southern Cal and Indiana, the
Wolverine's top challengers, both
lack breaststrokers to keep pace
with Clark with the result that
Michigan's hope to gain a consid-
erable point advantage on the
Trojans and Hoosiers, their chief
foes, as they drive for their fourth
consecutive NCAA Championship.
