meeting preceeding yesterday's first day of practice. The Phillies,

* SAN FRANCISCO - Warren Wells, star receiver for the Oakland

Municipal Court Judge Albert Wollenberg Jr. imposed sentence
after Wells' attorney, Stanley Golde, pleaded no contest to the charge.

voked last Wednesday and he was ordered to an Alameda County re-

0 ST. PAUL-MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota North Stars dealt
center Tommy Williams to the California Golden Seals yesterday for

Chicago sent left wing Doug Mohns and farmhand center Terry
Caffrey to the North Stars for center Danny O'Shea.
Williams, 30, had been dropped from the North Stars Feb. 4 for
what was termed insubordination to Coach Jack Gordon. The North
Stars also will send a player to be named at the end of the season for
the 34-year-old Hampson, who has 10 goals and 20 assists this season.

NEW YORK - Calvin Murphy
and Elvin Hayes shot the San
Diego Rockets from 15 points down
to a 126-109 victory over the New
York Knicks in National Basketball
Association game last night.
The Rockets, winning for the
seventh time in eight games and
beating the Knicks for the first
time in two years, dug themselves
a hole when New York scored the
last 12 points of the first quarter
for a 25-13 lead.
That deficit stretched to 51-36
before Murphy and Hayes took
over. With Murphy scoring 14
points in the second quarter and
Hayes nine, the Rockets closed the
gap to 67-63 at the half, caught up
at 73-73 and went ahead 91-86 after
three periods.
Then, when New York pulled
within 103-102, San Diego rattled
off eight points in a row, four by
Murphy, then another string of 14,
five by Murphy and four by Hayes.
Murphy and Hayes finished with
29 points each and Hayes also held
Knicks' center Willis Reed to a
meager nine points, none in the
second half. Dave Debusschere and
Dick Barnett had 24 points apiece
for the Knicks.

ningham's 35 points helped the
Philadelphia 76ers come from be-
hind in the final period last night to
defeat the Portland TrailBlazes
119-113 in a National Basketball
Association game.
Cunningham's twisting lay-up
with 6:07 remaining in the game
gave the 76ers a 105-104 lead. Phil-
adelphia never trailed after that

and boosted their margin in the
Atlantic Division to 'our games
over Boston in the scrap for the
division's second playoff spot.
Cunningham collected 13 field
goals and nine free throws for his
35, but was outscored by the Trail
Blazers' Geoff Petrie, who tallied
43. It equalled his career high.
The 76ers led by as much as 15
points twice in the second period,
but Portland, with Petrie scoring
14 of his points, rallied to lead at
halftime 57-56.
