DETROIT (A) - The Detroit
Red Wings and Montreal Cana-
diens meet for the National
Hockey League championship here
tonight and the betting is they
will forego any brawling and settle
down to serious hockey.
The Canadiens moved into a tie
with the idle Detroit Red Wings
for first place in the National_
Hockey League last night as they
defeated the New York.Rangers,
4-2, in a game that was far cry
from the riotous one of Thursday
night.f
A large detail of police equippedJ
with teargas bombs has been or-
dered to patrol Olympia Stadium
and its immediate vicinity to pre-
vent repetition of the bloody riot
which marred the teams' meeting
at Montreal Thursday night. t
At last night's Montreal-New1
a York Game, some 500 policemen
were on duty inside and outside1
the forum to prevent any recur-
rance of last Thursday's games,
when Montreal fans rioted after
league President Clarence Camp-
bell had suspended Maurice Ri-
chard for the season. Campbell
was not present last night.
But there were no incidences.

State Titles
State high school basketball
champions were crowned all over
the nation last night - and right
here in Michigan was no excep-
tion.
Unheralded Jackson won Michi-
gan's Class "A" crown by smash-
ing Benton Harbor, 74-61. L a c y
Bicy dropped in 32 points as Jack-
son took its third title.
River Rouge put on a brilliant
display of ball control in the last
two minutes to edge Buchanan,
51-48, to repeat as Michigan class
"B" kings.
Houghton, Mass Triumph
Classy Houghton, pride of the
Copper Country, stood off Way-
land long enough to take the "C"
title, 65-62, while Mass smashed
Ashley, 73-46 for the class "D"
crown.
Meanwhile Indiana's frenzied'
tourney came to an end, as the
Crispus Attucks Tigers of Indiana-
polis routed the Gary Roosevelt
Panthers, 97-74, in a record shat-
tering game.
In an all-Big Eight final, West
Rockford clipped Elgin, 61-59, to
win the Illinois high school cham-
pionship, while Ames High School
defeated Iowa City, 64-58, for the
Iowa crown, before 15,000 scream-
ing fans.

KANSAS CITY, (W)-San Fran-
cisco, No. 1 team in the nation,
last night rode behind terrific play
by 6-10 All-America Bill Russell to
a 77-63 victory over defending
champion La Salle in the Nation-
al Collegiate (NCAA) Basketball
Tournament Final.
Although his San Francisco
teammate K. C. Jones outscored
him, the lanky Russell made it
"no contest" against LaSalle's her-
alded Tom Gola in their long-
awaited showdown.
Russell tallied 23 points to set a
5-game NCAA scoring record of
118, while Gola, who held the for-
mer composite mark of 114 scored
16.
Russell Stars
Gola never lived up to expecta-
tions here, while Russell did ev-
erything expected of him, really
sewing up the game with an 18-
point first half performance which
had a capacity Municipal Auditor-
ium crowd of 10,500 beside itself.
Jones, a rugged 6-1, 202-pound-
er, copped scoring honors with 24
points on 10 field goals and four
free throws.
It wasn't much of a game after
the Dons, scoring their 26th
straight victory and completing
the season wita a 28-1 mark,
forged ahead by 19 points, 50-31,
early in the second half.
LaSalle, holding an NCAA rec-
ord of 9 straight tourney tri-
umphs, had a 13-game winning
streak snapped and wound up with
a 26-5 record.
LaSalle played Gola on a roving
basis and tried a sliding zone de-

fense against the catlike Dons,
whose Russell made some phenom-
enal scoring tip-ins in the first
half.
Iowa Loses
Paced by arn erstwhile reserve,
Jim Ranglos, Colorado's Big Seven
Champions ground to a methodi-
cal 75-54 triumph over Big Ten
Champion Iowa for third place in
the NCAA in an earlier game.
Ranglos tallied 18 points to lead
the Golden Buffaloes to an easy
victory over the favored Hawkeyes,
who played poorly most of the way.

Green scored 33 points as he
joined with slender Dick Ricketts
in a superb two-man performance.
In addition to scoring all but 14
of their team's points, these two
performedthe key defensive roles
in guarding Dayton's two tall tow-

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second
of three articles presenting an ana-
lysis of the coming NCAA swimming
championships.)
By LEW HAMBURGER
This year, as last, freestylers will
probably provide the most excite-
ment for swimming fans at the
NCAA championship meet Thurs-
day, Friday, and Saturday at Ox-
ford, Ohio's Miami University.
A year ago Michigan's Jack
Wardrop swam to the upset of the
year when he beat Ford Konno of
Ohio State in the 220 yard free-
style. This season a repeat per-
formance will be no upset.
The two have met twice this
season and each meeting has re-
sulted in a win for the Michigan
junior and a world record in the
process.

'M' Rifle Team Wins National
Intercollegiate Sectional Meet

Wardrop's nomenal time,
twice bettering 2.04 seconds has
speculators betting on another
lowering of the world's mark when
they meet at Oxford.
Konno will be favored in the
1500 meter swim, but in the 440
yard freestyle, Wardrop and In-
diana's Bill Woolsey could again
upset the Buckeye co-captain, and
could push him to a world record
in the event.
The sprints are certain to be
close, and will figure heavily in
the meet scoring. Yale's sprinters
boast the finest record of any team
in the nation. The Eli's have four
men who have bettered 51 seconds
in the 100 yard event, and several
50 yard men who can go the dis-
tance in less than 23 seconds.
Eli's Best
Rex Aubrey, Bob Armstrong,
Hendrick (Sandy) Gideonse, and
Kerry Donovan established a new
world's record in the 400 yard free-
style relay a short time ago and
each man is counted on for points
in the national meet.
Dartmouth's John Glover is an-
other Easterner who has ap-
proached 49 seconds in theevent,
and the Hanover star will be cer-
tain to be in the thick of things at
the NCAA meet.
The Big Ten's 100 yard cham-
pion, Michigan's Ron Gora is the
Maize and Blue's hope to break up
the Yale monopoly on sprint
events.
Iowa's Dick Pennington is the
Big Ten's other sprint champion,
in the 50 yard event, and was a
finalist in the nationals a year ago.

MEXICO CITY (P)-Juan Mir-
anda, a long striding Argentine,
outlasted Wes Santee, the United
States mile king, in a thrilling
stretch duel to win the featured
1,500 meter race of the Pan-Amer-
ican games yesterday.
Miranda burst across the finish
line in 3:53.2, a games record, just
a stride in front of the Kansas
cowboy.
The defeat in the 1,500 meters
came as a stunning blow to the
proud U.S. forces which had al-
most completed an undefeated
track season.
