Onofrio succeeds Devine;
Driver's death investigated



By The Associated Press
" ST. LOUIS-Al Onofrio, architect of some mighty Missouri
defensive squads, was named yesterday to succeed his friend, Dan
Devine, as head football coach at the University of Missouri at Co-
Onofrio was named to the job one day after Devine 'announced
that he was quitting as coach and athletic director at Missouri to take
a position of coach and general manager of the pro football Green
Bay Packers:
C. Brice Ratchford, interim president of the university, said that
Onofrio was hired at a salary of $24,000 a year for the coaching posi-
tion only.
He said a decision likely would be made later on an athletic
director but that Wilbur Stallcup, the assistant athletic director, would
handle the position in the interim.

* BUENOS AIRES-A local judge yesterday ordered French race
drver Jean-Pierre Beltoise to appear at an inquest Monday into the
Jan. 10 racing death of Italian driver Ignazio Giunti.
Buenos Aires newspapers speculated that Beltoise would be
charged with negligent homicide, but court sources said no decision
on charges can be made until after the inquest is held.
Local racing officials and witnesses to the racetrack tragedy also
have been ordered to appear Monday before Judge Esteban Vergara.
The decision on an inquest was made by Judge Nestor Sanz. If any-
one is indicted, he would have to stand trial at a later date.
The 33-year-old Beltoise has been strongly criticized for his role
in the accident that killed Giunti. His Matra 660 racer had run out of
fuel on a hairpan turn and Giunti's Ferrari plowed into it from the
The Ferrari exploded into flames and Giunti was declared dead
in a local hospital a short time later. Beltoise escaped unharmed.
Beltoise had been pushing his car on the track when the accident
occurred. Racing officials and members of the Ferrari team felt he
was violating racing regulations by failing to push the car imme-
diately off the track and out of the way of other drivers.
! FLINT-A suspended minor league hockey player has filed a
$7.5 million dollar suit against seven defendants, including the Na-
tional Hockey League, charging they violated antitrust laws in con-
spiring to prevent him from playing professional hockey.
The suit was filed by Jimmy Booth, 21, who played part of last
season for the Flint Generals cf the International Hockey League
while on loan from the Charlotte, N.C., franchise in the Eastern
Hockey League.

! DETROIT-Right wing Mickey Redmond, who was acquired
from Montreal Wednesday in a trade, has been sidelined indefinitely
because of a badly sprained right ankle, the Detroit Red Wings said
Redmond was injured in Detroit's 2-2 tie with the Pittsburgh
Penguins Thursday night. He was one of three players that Detroit
received in a trade which sent Frank Mahovlich to the Canadiens.

Hoosiers to
The Indiana Hoosiers, led by
sophomore whiz George McGinnis,
invade Crisler Arena today in a
battle of the conference unbeatens
that offers a little something for'
everybody and a much brighter
cage future for the winner.
Along with a 2-0 conference
record, the Hoosiers bring with
them the best over-all mark, 9-2,
of any Big Ten squad, and the
favorite's role to capture confer-
ence honors at this juncture in the
The Wolverines are coming off
a big opening-day win at Wiscon-
sin and are playing their second
of what will probably be fourteen
straight crucial games.
Featured in today's battle is the
meeting of the Big Ten's premier
sophomores-Henry Wilmore and
George McGinnis. Both had aus-
picious debuts last week as Wil-
more fired in 44 points, hitting 17
of 24 from the field and 10 of 12
free throws while McGinnis net-
ted an equally-impressive 38
points and hauled in 23 rebounds
in the Hoosiers' opener with
Northwestern and added 31 points
against Minnesota Tuesday night.
Both are likely to get their
points. The game, however is apt
to turn on the play of the less
heralded performers on both
teams. Witness the stellar per-
formances by Michigan's forwards
Rodney Ford and Ernie Johnson
in last Saturday's conquest of Wis-
consin. Ford contributed twelve
points and was especially tough
on the boards in the first half.

He uses the nine players almost
interchangeably, with substitutes
on occasion seeing more action
than the starters.
Even with so many sophomores
in the line-up, this is not a re-
building year athIndiana. Inex-
perience and mistakes have been
present at times in the Hoosiers'
early going, but as far as losses
are concerned, they have definite-
ly not accepted their share. Indi-
ana's lone defeats have come at
the hands of third-ranked Ken
tucky and Washington State in
the Far West Classic. Last Tues-
day, the Hoosiers added a 99-73
trouncing of Minnesota to go
along with their 101-90 victory a
Northwestern a week ago.
Behind McGinnis in the scoring'
department are the only two vet-
erans likely to see action. Six-
eight senior Joby Wright is aver-
aging 19.4 points a game from
a forward spot and 6-0 senior
guard Jim "Bubbles" Harris has
hit for 14.4. Probable starters also
include Steve Downing at center

vannah, Georgia, while Downing
and McGinnis played at Indiana-
polis Washington High. produc-
ing one of the greatest teams in
Indiana history.
The Hoosiers' height up front
could give Michigan problems.
Steve Downing stands 6-7 and
weighs 210, while Wright and Mc-
Ginnis both go 6-8, 220. This trio
has consistently dominated the
boards, often off-setting the turn-
overs that have at times beset the
Hoosiers. The mistakes have been
the only thing to slow down their
fast-paced attack so far.
Coach Watson however, doesn't
see the turnovers as a result of his
sophomore-laden line-up. "With
our style of play." says Watson,
"We're bound to give up the ball
more than some teams, but we
also can get the ball back more
than most teams because of our
rebounding strength."
Watson doesn't see his team as
the odds-on favorite to take the
Big Ten title, declaring it "A four
or five team race, with Illinois,
Purdue, Michigan, and Ohio State
all in the running."
Watson's counterpart Johnny
SOrr cited speed and rebounding as
the keys to Michigan's game.
"We've got to do our share on
the boards to stay with them," Orr
says "and we'd like to run on
t them if we possibly can."



" PITTSBURGH-The Pittsburgh Penglins said yesterday they
have called up defenseman Yvon Labre from Amarillo of The Central
League to replace Bryan Watson whose leg was broken in a National
Hockey League game against Detroit Thursday night.
