COACH FIHED Bill Salutes Mates, Red With Tsars BOSTON (AP) - Bill nussell hade his teammates a tearful farewell as captain of the Boston Celtics and talked of building » team to defend the National Basketball Association championship. • Russell also welcomed the break from Hie gruelling competition to give his personal injuries a chance to mend. It was revealed before the start of Friday night's 'breakup dinner that the 6-foot-10 defensive star had been playing since February wjth a broken bone in his right foot and a chipped left elbow. ... . .The 32-year-old Russell, key to Boston's winning its ninth NBA crown in 10 seasons, didn't let outgoing Coach Red Auerbach publicize his injuries for fear he would become the target of over eager opponents, causing more damage. * * * Russell regaled the dinner crowd as he teased his teammates and "our coach" at the gathering the Celtics have made an annual championship celebration. He broke down as he talked of his affection for the players he said "may not have been the best" he played with.. He told Auerbach, "You've contributed as much to basketball as a game than any man alive." ' ; Then !ie cracked, "During the past 10 years we've both been pretty lucky. I've had you and you've had me." He mentioned various former players in .he audience who "went out a winner" and said one reason the Celtics tried so hard to win the crown this season was, "It would have been a crying shame if the man who brought them all together didn't go out a winner." The next cbore for Coach Russell will be the .annual player draft meeting in New York May 11. Russell and Auerbach will get together several times before the meeting to discuss draft possibilities. Observers predicted that tile four Boston players who will be made available in the special draft to stock .he new Chicago franchise are Willie Naulls, K.C. Jones, John Thompson and Ron Bonham. * * * Auerbach received a parting salute from the NBA front office' yesterday. Commissioner Walter Kennedy announced that Auerbach, winner of 1,037 ;ames as a coach, and Los Angeles Coach Fred.Schaus were fined.$150 each for public criticism of league officials during the playoffs. It seemed like a typical finish : or the. 48-year-old Auerbach, who built a reputation for baiting officials during his long ten- finiiiiiiiiiHiiHiiniiiiiHiiniiiiiiiiiiiniiiM Junior Dragons Run Second FORREST CITY-Abel White's Harrison Junior High'track team ran second here yesterday in the Forrest City Relays.

(Courier News Phots by Dickie Hefner) Cub CF Is Laughingly Fast CHICAGO (AP) — Leo Du- focher can still laugh aid that's quite a trick for the Chicago Cub manager whose team is mired in the National League cellar with a 3-11 record. The only reason Leo can augh is Adolfo Phillips, a 22- turned in another sparkling performance Friday despite the Cubs' 5-1 loss to Jim Bunning and the Philadelphia Phillies. Phillips, the major acquisition in last week's five-man deal with Philadelphia in which the Cubs sent pitchers Larry Jackson and Bob Buhl to the Phillies, is threatening to become the first top-notch center fielder the Cubs have had in - two decades,' Phillips got three hits, including a double and a homer off the masterful Bunning. More important was the fact his homer came in the seventl. after he had been hit by a Bunning pitch in the fifth.
