Indiana Has One Goal Left: Win NCAA Basketball Title HI .1 y IIWTMr"lv\*r »_j .**«. i ... • •' igan, the other tourney serii finalists, for the natiom championship Monday night. "I'm just delighted ths BLUUMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Only two basketball teams ever have entered NCAA tournament competition undefeated for two straight years — and they play each other Saturday. Indiana's No. 1-rated Hur- ryin' Hoosiers, unbeaten in regular-season competition since early 1974, and the fifth-ranked UCLA Bruins, undefeated in 1972 and 1973, collide in a nationally televised NCAA semifinal game Saturday afternoon in Philadelphia. The winner will face either No. 3 Rutgers or No. 9 Mich- ---„ that we're there and with the: opportunity of winning the championship," said Indiana Coach Bobby Knight, whose Hoosiers have won — either individually or collectively — nearly every college honor except the national title. "I've said all along that my philosophy is the hope that all the teams play their best, that injuries or other such factors play no part," Knight said. "We can accept the results of that with no regrets." The Indiana-UCLA rivalry covers just seven previous meetings between the two Big Ten and Pac-8 powers. But the last two games have had tremendous intensity. In the 1973 NCAA semifinals at St. Louis, the Bruins, led by Bill Walton, surged to a 20- point lead and withstood a frantic Indiana comeback to within two points before Hoosier center Steve Downing fouled out. UCLA eventually beat Indiana 70-59 and went on to the national championship.

The Hoosiers have won 29 straight since then, while the Bruins take a 264 mark into Saturday's heralded rematch. "My concern earlier in the first-round (NCAA tourney) game (againt St. John's) and the regional (against Alabama and Marquette) was that something might happen to deny our players the chance in the finals," Knight said. "What they have done in representing this university and our basketball program over the past four years has just been tremendous.'' In those four years, the Hoosiers have won 106 games while losing just 12 — going 22-6, 23-5, 31-1 and 30-0 with two games left this year. Indiana also won its fourth straight Big Ten championship this year and •extended its conference record to 37 straight league victories. The Hoosiers also have won 57 consecutive regular-season games and 34 in a row at home. Drop Rule for Area Colleges "DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Area school boards would not be required to prohibit their students from smoking or drinking liquor under legislation approved 444) by the Senate and sent to the House Wednesday. Currently area school boards operate under the same law as public schools and are required to adopt the liquor and smoking rules. "I hope you will join me in removing high school rules from the community colleges," said Sen. Elizabeth Shaw, R-Davenport. ' The Senate was told that 40 per cent of the students at Kirkwood Community College are over the age of 23 and 75 per cent were out of high school a year or more before entering the school.

Triplett Won't Apply Dave Triplett, football coach at Sioux City Heelan the past season, says he doesn't plan to apply for the coaching vacancy at West Des Moines Dowling High School. . "I feel that Dowling would be a fine job opportunity for anyone," he said in an interview Wednesday. "But at this time, I feel that I owe a lot to the parents and administration at Heelan." Heelan is the reigning Class AAAA state football champion. Triplett is a 1968 graduate of Dowling where he played for Jim Williams.who announced Tuesday he was resigning to join the staff at Iowa State. "It's kind of hard to leave after a year," said Triplett. "Sure, we won the playoffs, but I don't think that one year makes a coach.

By Ira Levin. (Random House, $8.95) Novelists nave to work hard these days to think up fictional situations that will surpass the bizarre in real life. But Levin, of Rosemary's Baby fame has done it again. Here he strains the reader's credulity a bit but by the novel's wild and bloody climax one does believe it could happen. The key bit of dialogue early on is this statement by the 'most wanted Nazi alive, the notorious Angel of Death': 'You know what you're going out to do. Ninety-four men have to die on or near certain dates in the next two and a half years. They're sixty-five years old ... The hope and the destiny of the Aryan race lie in the balance.' He's addressing six former SS men who depart on their mission forthwith. Aging Viennese Nazi-hunter Yakov Liebermann receives a cryptic message from Sao Paulo advising him of the plan. He begins his lonely crusade to stop the killings and to guess what the mysterious link might be between the victims-to-be. A Literary Guild selection — and unquestionably a movie in The Boys future. — Mary Ann Riley. -0- THE EAGLE AND THE STORK. By Stoyan Cristowe. (Harper's Magazine Press, $10.95). In the early part of this century, a 12-year old boy came to America from Macedonia, fell in love with his adopted land, became an American in spirit as well as in fact and — although it's mentioned only once, and briefly, in these memoirs — became a Vermont state senator. A long, difficult, yet inspiring, trail — as far as this book went. It stopped when Cristowe was 17. Readers will surely require further elucidation of how a semi-literate, foreign-born lad working as a railroad gandydancer out West finally became an elected office-holder back East. In this book, readers will find much that is evocative of early 20th century America — the vim and vigor of young believers from abroad who worked hard, educated themselves, prospered, and rarely returned to the country of their birth. Also, readers will surely appreciate the courage, determination, faith and gratitude reflected herein; qualities none too prominent in today's apathetic and cynical times. Midwestern and Northwestern railroad buffs will especially like this book as it recaptures the picturesque. rough-hewn, life in early St. Louis railroad roundhouses, work-trains through Iowa and the Dakotas, and the rigors of a wild Montana. But the book demands a sequel. — Kelly Adrian -0- GEORGE AND ANNA. By Barbara Rees. (Harper & Row $7.95). Not an ordinary novel by any means is this 156 page glimpse of married life in contemporary Britain. But George is — well, ordinary. He works for a dictionary publishing company. He's shy; too inhibited as a child evacuee during World War II to know he was abused and miserable; too shy to complain to a landlady during eight years of bad food and cramped lodging; too unaware to realize that Anna, who married him for her own reasons and even gave him a son, is involved with real revolutionaries. He's pathetic but the reader warms to him; Anna, one grows to hate. Would that the prolix lesser novelists in the US got one message — that everything needn't be spelled out! And that a few vivid details enhance a bareboned narrative, viz: 'he had slept little and it seemed as if myriads of tiny insects were crawling about under the very tight skir of his face.' Well-done but hardly for a mass readership. —Mary Ann Riley. EIGHTY DOLLARS TO STAMFORD. By Lucille Fletcher. (Random House, $6.95) The author of Sorry, Wrong Number has created another novel of great suspense, this time centered around a New York cab driver David Marks, whose wife was killed by a hit and run driver. David teaches English by day and moonlights at night driving a cab. It is here that his life takes a bizarre turn. David is hailed one night by a beautiful girl who asks him to drive her to Stamford, Conn, and to wait the one hour that she needs to be there. She enters a darkened house and David is intrigued by the mystery of it all, and very attracted to his passenger. A second, and then a third time he is called to make the trip to Stamford, but the last time Diana does not come back from the large Colonial house set far back from the road. When David goes to search for her he finds instead a murdered man and recognizes him to be the same man who killed his wife. Lucille Fletcher weaves her story well. The ending is surprising and unexpected. The book is recommended reading for those who like a good mystery. —Helen Stein. Don't lay an egg this Easter. Clean your carpet with Steamex now.
