By DICK COUCH Associated Press Sports Writer Illinois took its 10-game winning streak to Lafayette, Ind. . . . and went down before the Mount. Rick Mount, Purdue's slick shotmaker, exploded for 37 points Tuesday night as the Boilermakers dropped the nationally fourth-ranked Ulini from the dwindling unbeaten ranks 98-84. Illinois' first setback left only three major college teams with perfect records ... top-ranked UCLA, No. 3 Santa Clara and No. 10 New Mexico State.

Mike Maloy and Jerry Kroll divided 40 points in leading the Wildcats to their ninth victory. Sophomore Ken Durett's 25 points paced 11th ranked LaSalle to a 103-84 victory over Creighton and Temple blasted Pennsylvania 107-83 behind Joe Cromer's 35-point binge in a doubleheader at Philadelphia's Palestra. Marquette, No. 20 in the latest Associated Press poll, squeezed past Chicago Loyola 65-64, Bradley nipped Memphis State 68-67 and Providence downed St. Bonaventure 70-59 in other top games. Mount, the Big Ten Conference's top scorer last season, shot 16 for 24 from the field and combined with soph George Faerber for 11 straight Purdue points in a second half rally that floored the Illini. Faerber and 7-foot Chuck Bavis shut out Greg Jackson, Illinois' 6-foot-8 center, who managed just two points on a pair of free throws.

Replacement Plans Indefinite Patriots Relieve Holovak After 2 Slumping Seasons After Disastrous Bowl Losses Seastern Coaches Clamor For More Scholarship Grants By LARRY ELDRIDGE Associated Press Sports Writer Boston (AP) — After two sea sons of mounting fan discntent it was Godbye Mike fr real today with the announcement that the Boston Patriots had fired their long-time head coach and general manager, Mike Holovak. The former Boston College star, a fixture with the Pats since the inception of the American Fotball League in 1960, had an over-all record of 52-46-9 in his nearly eight full seasons at the coaching helm. But he became the target of increasing boos and catcalls as the team slumped in the past two seasons. The decision to relieve Holovak of his present duties was reached by the 10-man board of directors at a Monday night meeting, but the announcement was withheld until Tuesday so that club President William H. Sullivan Jr. could inform him personally. Neither was immediately available for comment. Holovak is in the midst of a five-year contract which runs through the end of the 1971 season, and the Patriots said he would be offered another job in the organization, the nature of which will be determined soon. A spokesman said there was no immediate indication from Sullivan or other high officials where the team was seeking separate individuals as coach and general manager or planned again to hire one man in the dual capacity. The fate of Holovak's five as> sistant coaches was another question, although the spokesman said the team was happy with all of them. Holovak, 48, starred at halfback for three years with Boston and after service in World War H spent three years in the National Football League with the Los Angeles Rams and the Chi' cago Bears. He later served for nine years as head coach at BC compiling a 49-29-3 record 1 , before being tapped by the Patriots as the first executive they hired when the team and the AFL were be- 1960 season. Starting as director of player personnel, Holovak succeeded Lou Saban as head coach on Oct. 10, 1961, and at the end of the 1966 season he signed his present five-year pact as coach and general manager.

Hockey writers in the 12 NHL cities selected 12 players in each division for the 22nd annual AU-Star classic, to be played in Montreal Jan. 21. Stars from the East Division will oppose standouts from the expansion West Division for the first time. The old All-Star format matched the defending Stanley Cup champions against stars from the other clubs in the league. St Louis Coach Scotiy Bowman, the West pilot, and former Montreal Coach Toe Blake, who will direct the East squad, each will name seven more players later in the week, completing the 19-man All-Star squads. Hull, Howe and Orr topped the voting in the East, drawing the maximum 90 points apiece, while St. Louis center Red Berenson headed the West team with a total of 86 points. Joining right winger Howe and left winger Hull on the East's top forward line is Boston center Phil Esposito. Toronto veteran Tim Horton followed the 20-year-old Orr in the de- fensemen balloting and New York's Ed Giacomin nailed the goaltender's berth. Jacques Plants of St. Louis is the West's No. 1 goalie, with teammate Al Arbour and Los Angeles' Bill White on defense and Minnesota right winger Claude Larose and Oakland left winger Gary Jarrett flanking Berenson. Other East team selections are goalie Gerry Cheevers of Boston, defensemen J.C. Tremblay of Montreal and Pat Stapleton of Chicago, right winger Bob Nevin of New York, center Jean Beliveau of Montreal and left winger Frank Mahovlich of Detroit The second six in the West voting were goalie Glenn Hall of St. Louis, defensemen Ed Van Impe of Philadelphia and Elmer Vasko of Minnesota, right win­ ger Bill Hicke of Oakland, center Ted Hampson of Oakland and left winger Danny Grant of Minnesota. By WILL GR1MSLEY Associated Press Sports Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Deep South football belt, once the scourge of the bowls, is yelpirig with pain after the most disastrous major bowl setbacks in its history. Southeastern Conference coaches are clamoring for more athletic scholarships for more athletic scholarships or, in lieu of that, a national ceiling on grants-in-aid that can be given chested linemen. "If we are to compete with schools that have 50 scholarships a year, we should have 50," said Paul "Bear" Bryant, whose i Alabama Crimson Tide was mauled! by Missouri in the Gator'Bowl 32-10. As members of the Southeastern Conference, Alabama and Georgia are allowed 40 grants- in-aid; a year for football talent Missduri of the Big Eight, ;ets 45 and Arkansas is permitted 50. For years, the Southeastern Conference has had a right to boast of its intersectional and bowl prowess. It has established an <• enviable record down through the years. However, this season, the Southeastern Conference had one ' ! of its most embarrassing post season experiences. The top three powers lost to outsiders (although over-all the league finished 3-3. Last season, the Southeastern score was 1-4. In a period when universities as $ whole are pleading poverty over escalating athletic department cost, it is strange to find anyone asking for the privilege of jincreasing the number of scholarship grants. The number of scholarships necessary to field a representative] football team joined the debate over return to one-platoon foofball as one of the key subjects at the otherwise dull National Collegiate Athletic Association convention here. little hope is given for the one-platoon campaign at the meeting of the rules committee nejtt week In Palm Springs. Little; more is expected to be done about scholarships, now a conference or individual problem not regulated by the NCAA. If there should be a national ceiling, what is a reasonable figure? One suggestion getting popu- laj* support—particularly among the financially-pressed athletic directors—is that the number be 90 in a school at one time. The NCAA convention ends today. The chief issue before delegates is whether to keep the rule permitting; freshmen to compete in all varsity sports except football and basketball. The tip is that they will. NEW YORK (AP) — Bob Foster, world light heavyweight noxing champion, and Frankie De Paula signed Monday for a Jan. 22 15-round title fight at Madison Square Garden. $100,000 Tourney Casper Is Favored In LA. Open LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fifty-two professional golfers and 156 amateurs swarmed over the Rancho Municipal golf course Wednesday in the pro-am prelude of the $100,000 Los Angeles Open Tournament. On hand for official action going Thursday are Billy Casper, the defending champion and golf's leading money winner in 1968; National Open champ Lee Trevino, Arnold Palmer and Masters champion Bob Goalby. This is the 43rd annual Los Angeles Open. With the exception of last year, when the honor went to the Bing Crosby pro-am at Monterey, Calif., Los Angeles has been the kickoff start of the winter tour. Rancho's 6,800-yard, par-71 test has been the site for 15 of the tournaments. Early weather forecasts call for good conditions. Whether this will hold true through Sunday is something the sponsers can worry about. —: The entry roll is jammed with familiar names '... Art Wall jr., Chi Chi Rodriguez, Al Gieber- ger, Doug Sanders, Gardner Dickinson, Frank Beard, Don January, Gene Littler, Bobby Nichols and many more. Missing from the list are Jack Nicklaus, who usually does not start the tour —until the Crosby later this month, and South Africa's Gary Player, whose tournament competition is more limited than in the past.
