Gary Keeps, Quarterback Gary Lane tucks the ball under his arm and runs In this first-quarter action yesterday at rui iru Pistons Pounded By Hawks By John J. Archibald The Hawks came alive after a slow start, but the Detroit Pistons never did, and St. Louis won the National Basketball Association game at Kiel Auditorium last night,; 122-95. There was little semblance to the qurdwnoving attack of their previous game the victory over the Boston Celtics a week beforeas the Hawks groped for baskets in the early going. Their first field goal came after ne three minutes had elapsed and it was on a goal-tending call after a shot of Cliff Hagan." Richie Guerin shouted repeat-l edly for his club to get running and when St. Louis trailed by an 8-4 score with four minutes gone,' the coach called a timeout. ' On the play that followed the time-out, though, the Hawks were charged with traveling and again failed to get their shot. Guerin put himself into the game in place of Jeff Mullins with 6:32 to go in the period and the score 8-6 in Detroit's favor. Richie immediately drove for the basket, scored and was fouled and the Hawks had the lead. Still the attack boggled and Guerin himself was unable to score on several later drives for the basket. A last-second jumper by Guerin put the Hawks in front, 22-21, as the quarter ended. The Hawks shot a mere .333, with six for 19 in the period. Center Zelmo Beaty suffered a fingernail cut on his right eye shortly after the second quarter 6tarted. He remained in the game, but interrupted the action a minute later to say he "couldn't see." Gene Tormohlen replaced him with the Hawks leading, 26-25. Tormohlen, seldom seen since his emergence from retirement this season, played an important part in the St. Louis offensive that got under way shortly after. A hook shot by Tormohlen made it 33-30 and he was credited with assists on baskets shortly after by Bill Bridges and Guerin that made it 43-30. Dave DeBusschere scored a pair of baskets for Detroit at that point, but at the half the Hawks were in front, 55-43. The third quarter clearly belonged to the Hawks as the Piston defense put up only minimum effort. Mullins, back in the lineup, popped in five field goals and Beaty apparently recovered from his eye injury added another 10 points. As the fourth quarter began, the Hawks had an 85-65 lead. Beaty sank three successive backets at the start of the final period and with nine minutes to go the Hawks had a 25-point lead and Guerin began sending in his reserves.

The Mini pursuit simply chased Purdue's remarkable quarterback, Bob Griese, into frustration on this bright and balmy afternoon at Memorial Stadium as the Orange and Blue climbed past .500 for the first time this football season. Such was the Illinois defensive rush that Griese, the nation's No. 2 passer and a do-it-all guy who was ranked No. 4 in total offense, was even chased to the bench, with senior stand-in Doug Holcomb the quarterback at one stage of the final period. . There were records a-plenty as Illinois, a three-point underdog, caught Purdue for a fourth-place tie in Big Ten standings with 2-2 conference record. The records were mainly Gra-bowski's. His ramminv runs, whether hitting Straight ahead or bending the corners with pitchouts, netted him a Big Ten career rushing record, plus an Illinois career total offense record, plus an Mini one-game high for carries. The Boilermakers had been ranked sixth and seventh in the wire service polls this past week, but Purdue was a tottering giant coming into this game after being beaten by Michigan State, 14-10, last weekend. And Grabowski, a rambler, proved the giant killer. The Chicago senior carried 36 times for a 163-yard net that pushed his career rushing total to 2275 yards, the best three-year running gain accomplished by a Big Ten player. His pick-up today also gave him 2540 yards in total offense, cracking the Illinois career record of 2424 set by quarterback Tommy O'Connell In 1951-52. The 36 rusmes erased the rec- Columbia.

The 163 yards he packed away today made his fifth best afternoon at Illinois. In three seasons against the Boilermakers, whose hopes for a first trip to the Rose Bowl went down the drain with unbeaten Michigan State's romp against Northwestern today, Grabowski has run for 298 yards. And when he slammed across from the 1 late in the first quarter for a 7-0 lead this after-noon, Grabo had socked Purdue Spartan EAST LANSING, Midi., Oct. 30 (UPI) Top-ranked Michigan State bulled closer to the Big Ten football title and a Rose ,Bowl bid today by crushing Northwestern, 49-7. The Spartans, pushing for their first undefeated season in 13 years, rebounded from an early Northwestern touchdown with a dazzling display of speed and power to earn their seventh straight victory of the season before a homecoming crowd of 74,215.

Quarterback Fred Custardo, whose long, daring pitchouts to Grabowski and halfback Sam Price set up Grabbo's slashing runs up the middle. Also bettered O'Connell's total offense record. Custardo finished the day with a three-year total of 2480 and twice passed for touchdowns hitting halfback Ron Bess from the 3 for a 13-0 halftime lead and then knocking Purdue flat with a 25-yard bomb to end John Wright in the fourth period. That fourth-period TD, coming at a time when Purdue still was in the game, followed a finishing touch on a dandy day of defense by Mini end Bo Batchelder. As Illinois coach Pete Elliott commented later, "We got one of those days of superb efforts on the part of everyone," but Bach-elder was the kid whose effort was most distinctive. After intercepting both Griese and Holcomb and also regaining possession for the Mini on a fumble recovery after a short Illinois punt, Batchelder laid Grrese's frustation bare. Purdue, whose team rushing net was a minius-14 yards thanks Sophomore fullback Bob Apisa scored three touchdowns and 20 point; to tie an MSU one-game 'ecord.

The TD came when sophomore quarterback Dennis Boothe fumbled iyn a rollout and Larry Gates recovered in tht end zone.

Then Bill y January, a Post-Dispatch Photographer to an Mini rush that spilled Griese for losses of 42 yards, had fired up for a comeback when fullback John Kuzniewski took a screen pass from Griese and ran 51 yards to the Mini 10, where he was knocked out of bounds by safety Ron Acks. Griese handed off to Kuzniewski for two more and then faded to pass. He faded into oblivion. Batchelder bear-hugged Griese and suddenly took off a-runnin' with the ball. The theft official, ly listed as a fumble recovery-was g?od for 55 yards, and Bo, after missing two games because of a knee injury, puffed to the Purdue 25 before Griese brought him down from behind. Here it was that Custardo, who completed 14 of 21 passes for 158 yards compared to Griese's 14 of 28 for 177-bombed the Boilermakers out of business.

TBs'4 MM By Dave Lioman Of the Post-Dispatch Staff COLUMBIA, Mo., Oct. 30 "It's unfortunate that a play that doesn't involve the ball being snapped decides the football game," Missouri coach Dan Devine said softly. Devine seemed drained of J emotion. He talked slowly, sipping at a cup of water between words, after his Timers ihad dropped a heart-breaking 16-14 decision to undefeated Nebraska here today. The incident to which he referred was the critical personal-foul penalty against Missouri for allegedly directing profanity at an official. The penalty moved Nebraska into close range for its winning field goal. Before commenting on the call, Devine paused for a seemingly endless time. "I don't know about the call," he finally said. "I haven't had a satisfactory explanation yet." Then he continued, "apparently it was something one our boys said. I'm not going to name him. But that call decided the game as much as any play on the field. The boy told me he was disappointed he hadn't made a better tackle and made some comment to himself that obviously someone misinterrupted as being directed at them. I probably would have said something worse. "This is a game of emotions Holt Jr., a Post-Dispatch Photograph....
