The Northwestern basketball team has lost senior for ward PHIL WARREN for three weeks as a result of a hairline fracture in his left foot. He was the team's third leading scorer. Iowa's Eawkeyes have won the Grantland Rice Award presented by the football Writers Assn. of America. The award goes annually tp the school which has the country's No. 1 team in the large, and HARRISON DIL-LARD, former Olympic hurdles and dash star, were dropped from the Cleveland Indians staff. Dillard had been with the Tribe nearly 10 years, most of it in public relations but recently as secretary for the farm club system. Neither will be replaced. BOBBY FISCHER, 15, won his second straight National Chess championship Sunday when he drew with ROBERT BYRNE of Indianapolis in 28 moves. That gave Fischer an 8-2xk record. Bobby didn't lose a match, but a draw counts a half point in the losing column SAMUEL RASHEVSKY finished second.
