V Hawks Also Take Burwell, Tonv Yates By Special Correspondent of h Post-Dispatch NEW YORK, April 30-The Hawks, who were shopping for a guard-forward swingman, selected Boston College's 6-foot-4 Jerry Ward, who plays both the frontline and backline, in the first round of the annual National Basketball Association player draft today. The league concluded the draft after seven rounds. No owner could recall a briefer draft session. An unusually large number of small college players and "sleeper" prospects were among the 63 collegians claimed by the nine N.B.A. teams in what generally was regarded as the leanest draft crop in many seasons. Before the regular draft began, the Cincinnati Royals claimed Tom Thacker, University of Cincinnati All-America, as a territorial draft choice. N.B.A. teams will have only two more years in which to make territorial picks. Team owners yesterday voted, 6-3, to kill such drafts, effective with the 1966 session. The New York Knickerbockers had the first choice as the regular selections got under way and took Art Heyman, Duke All-America and 1963 college play-er-of-the-year. In the second round, the Hawks got two picks because of trades and claimed Leland Mitchell, 6-4 Mississippi State forward who averaged 17.1 points a game, and Ken Say-lors of Arkansas State, two-time National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Little All-America, who averaged 22.8 last season and 30.7 two seasons ago. Ward, a 200-pounder, averaged 19.9 points a game. "We were looking for that boy In the 6-5 ranee who can play either guard or forward and I think we got him," said Marty Blake, Hawks general manager, of Ward. Bill Burwell, lllinois's 6-8 center who averaged 15.5 points a game, was picked up in the third round by the Hawks. Then St. Louis grabbed Cincinnati U.'$ fine playmaker, 6-1 Tony Yates. Owner Ben Kerner and Blake also selected two Missouri college players, Gordon Mc-Farland, a 6-3 Troy (111.) resident who played for Warrens-burg State, and Carl Ritter, 6-2 guard at Cape Girardeau Slate. Other Hawk choices were Ron Santio, 6-7 forward from Maryland State; Waite Bellamy, 6-4 guard-forward from Florida A. & M. who averaged 27.9 points a game; Ken Rohloff, 6-1 North Carolina State guard who hit 12.2 points a game; Harold Struthers, 6-5 Texas A. & M forward who played (he past two years with Wilkes-Barre in the Eastern League; Frank Davis, 6-5 Oklahoma Christian guard who averaged 26.3 points a game; Hugh Evans, 6-2 North Carolina A. &. T. guard who hit 17 points a contest; Marv Straw, 6-4 Iowa State, 6-4 all-Big Eight guard, and Jim Archibald, 6-8 Appalachian (N.C.) State center. Among big-name stars tapped early were Rod Thorn of West Virginia, selected by the Zephyrs, who will be moving from Chicago to Baltimore; Nate Thurmond of Bowling Green, taken by San Francisco, and Eddie Miles of Seattle, who was picked by Detroit. Teams selected in reverse order of their won-lost records during the regular season. Also in the first round, Tom Hoover of Villanova went to Syracuse; Roger Strickland of Jacksonville 4Fla.) College was picked by Los Angeles and Bill Green of Colorado State U. was selected by the champion Boston Celtics. Hoover dropped out of Villa-nova after his sophomore year and has been playing semipro ball since. The N.B.A. completed its first Celebrity Golf Nets $1500 Do-lt-Yourself Story: By Bill Beck Greenbriar's Jim Jackson shot 12 holes of golf he might have preferred saving for the National Amateur, $1500 more was added to a fund to help a deserving girl through college and the Big Red's Don Owens lost his favorite pigeon. Those were the highlights of the second Pro-Amateur Celebrity tournament at Normandie Golf Club yesterday. And, oh yes, the best team won. Captained by St. Louis Country Club assistant pro Rich Craden, it included topflight amateur Jim Tom Blair, St. Louis District Women's President Millie Dumont and your humble servant. Hitting its licks in the right places and using its handicap strokes as a bludgeon, the team was 10 under par. Mrs. Dumont saved four of 10 shots. As it was last year, the event was beset by foul weather, Including a spectacular display of lightning and a stinging fusilade of hailstones. But the field of 126 players completed 12 holes before dashing for shelter and the prizes were awarded for that distance. Jackson was six under par for the 12 holes and topped the serious men amateurs. Norwood's Bob Cochran, three under, way second. Host Frank Keller and Westwood assistant Larry Bianco topped the pro contingent at three under. Former University of Missouri golfer Bob Martin was the best celebrity at one over and Cardinal shortstop Dick Groat was second at five over. Ellen Conant, former women's district champion, and Evelyn Diefenbach were the top distaff shooters at even par. Mrs. Conant served as tournament chairman. She said the tournament enjoyed better support than last Pick Boston College's Ward in First Round of NBA Draft & "" ' ' 1 t i 'i I 1 - Z. - s jTV ' - J I f 4 This Opened the I- - ,n "if - r - 1 Ixaaaft i jn mmiTi Wrwun iiriifMwiiaaliaii 4t fe-ii ss as . t Washington'i CHUCK HINTON pound over first base after Los Angeles Angel pitcher JULIO NAVARRO round in the record time of 10 minutes. All-America Jerry Harkness of Chicago Loyola was the choice of the New York Knickerbockers on the second round, giving them two All-Americas in their first two picks. The addition of Heyman and Harkness was expected to bolster the Knicks' backcourt, which was woefully inadequate as the team finished in last place in the eastern division with the poorest record in the league. Two higih-scoring Indiana stars were selected in the third round. Cincy took Jimmy Rayl and Baltimore grabbed Tom Bolyard. Dave Downey of Illinois went in the fourth round to San Francisco. Marquette's Dave Erickson was picked by Detroit in the fourth round. In the fifth round, Bill Small of Illinois went to Detroit, Mack Herndon of Bradley went to Cincy and W. D. Stroud of Mississippi State to Boston. The territorial draft exercised by Cincinnati gives a team the right to tab collegians playing within 50-mile radius of its home court. When the owners voted to drop the territorial draft in 1966, only Boston, Cincinnati and New York voted against it. In other action, the N.B.A. officially offered its approval of the shift in franchise from Chicago to Baltimore. Bryant Sues Post For $5 Million More BIRMINGHAM, Ala., April 30 (UPI) Alabama coach Paul Bryant today filed an additional $5 million libel suit against the Saturday Evening Post. The suit today resulted from an editorial in the Post last iimaL in wh-tpih tho manfl7inp said o koliova that unvnno who i we Believe tnat anyone wno i rigs a football game should be exposed." Earlier the magazine said Bryant participated in the rigging of a 1962 game. The suit asked for $5 million in punitive damage because of the "falsely and maliciously" published editorial after Bryant had told the magazine the first article was in error. The March 23 edition of the Post said former Georgia Athletic Director Wallace Butts gave Bryant secret information prior to the 1962 Alabama-Georgia football game. Both Butts and Bryant denied it. In the Post editorial, it said it "first received a report that a college football game had been fixed" in February. Gate Balk Rule Eased? 78th NEW YORK, April 30 (UPI) Who says they've eased the balk rule? 1 National League president Warren Giles tried, but apparently he didn't get through to his umpires. They set a National League record last night by calling the seventy seventh and seventy eighth balks of the season and also set Casey Stengel to doing cartwheels because one of those balks gave the New York Mets a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Dodger reliever Ed Roebuck balked home the winning run during a three-run rally in the seventh inning after winner RogeT Craig had erased the old mark of 76 In a single season by balking home a run In the second inning. "I thought they had eased the rule," said a dejected Roebuck after the gam e. "I still don't know what the interpretation is." Craig, who beat his former teammates for the first time, was perplexed too, although happier than Roebuck because he won. "I didn't think I balked," said the lanky Met right-hander. "I was sure I stopped before I delivered the ball. But the umpire (Al Barlick) said I didn't." Dodger Manager Walt Alston said both Roebuck and Craig had balked. "Neither of them stopped," he said. "Even under the revised interpretation of the rule, both were guilty of balks." According to Giles's newest directive, pitchers still are required N.B.A. Draft Selections TKKIUTORIAI, NM.KrTIO.V CINCINNATI Tom Thacker. Cincinnati U.

FOURTH ROUND NEW YORK Nata Cloud, Delaware; BALTIMORE Nolen Ellison, Win Meet, year, when it earned $1300 and provided a University of Missouri scholarship , for Barbara Bubany, a promising young golfer. Unfortunately, Miss Bubany is in St. Joseph's Hospital, at present, undergoing treatment for meningitis. That pretty well wraps it up, except for the hole-in-one contest, which was conducted at 125-yard No. 3. Hitting the ball from tee to green can become pretty monotpnous if you let It. For Instance, by carefully spraying my tee shots, I managed to see scenic points of Normandie most golfers miss. But there was a prize for closest-to-the-hole on No. 3, so I stuck that ball 28 inches from the stick. I was the winner. Cardinal running back John David Crow also understands what it is like to travel. He saw considerable Normandie real estate before Westborough pro Tony Henschel pointed out that he could improve his direction with a better pivot. Crow didn't give a hang about holes-in-one, but he did take pleasure in zeroing in on teammate Larry Wilson, who was in the foursome ahead of him. On par four No. 17, Crow boomed his drive into a headwind with such force and accuracy that he narrowly missed Wilson, who was bending over his putt on the green. The belt estimated at 250 yards, was good for an eagle. It was the event's most spectacular shot. In fact, once Crow got the hang of it, tie accounted for seven of the eight strokes the Henschel team shaved from par as it finished tied for fourth. "Listen, Henschel," growled the 255-pound Owens, the Big Red's defensive tackle, "before you came along, Crow was the softest tin cup I ever mt on a golf course. Now, you ruined the kid."

Anyway, Roebuck's seventh Inning balk allowed Charley Neal to trot home with the winning run from third and ended the Mets' three-game losing streak. Rookie Ed Kranepool launched the winning rally with a double to open the seventh and after Neal bunted safely, loser Bob Miller uncorked a wild pitch that tied the score. Neal advanced to third on Al Moran's single and came home after Roebuck relieved Miller and committed a balk. The San Francisco Giants snapped a three-game losing Kansas; SAN FRANCISCO Itnvei Downey.

Rain washed out scheduled games between the Houston Colts and Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds. In the American League, the Washington Senators beat the Los Angeles Angels, 9-3, in the first game of a twi-nighter but lost the second game, 13-8. The only other scheduled games between the Chicago White Sox and New York . Yankees, and Baltimore Orioles and Minnesota Twins were rained out. Willie Mays belted the 100th triple of his career in the third inning and came home with the winning run on Orlando Ce-peda's single off loser Cat McLish. Former Oriole Jack Fisher was nicked for 10 hits by the Phillies, who dropped their third straight, but went the distance for his first National League victory. Chuck Hinton drove in three runs with a homer and a single to pace the Senators to their victory in the opener over the Angels. Bob Turley suffered his third straight loss for Los Angeles, although a two-base throwing error by reliever Julio Navarro opened the gates for a four-run Washington rally in the fifth. Don Rudolph hurled an eight-hitter for his first victory. The Angels came from behind with six runs in the seventh inning to salvage the nightcap. Little Albie Pearson collected thioe hits to pace the winner's 14-hit attack. Mel Nelson was the winning pitcher and Jim Hannarf the loser. How They Stand NATIONAL LEAGUE W. L. Pct.G.B.

Detroit Only ganiet scheduled Sports Comment Mathews Carving Quite a Niche By Bob Broeg Post-Dispatch Sports Editor For one night, and one night only, as they'd say along the tanbark trail, St. Louis will have an opportunity tonight to see an olive- .... skinned, handsome young man who is apt to wind up as the second most productive home-run hitter in baseball history. Milwaukee ' s Edwin Lee . Mathews has been here before, of course, Broeg and he'll be back again, a total of nine games against the Cardinals this season at Busch Stadium, one of his favorite parks. But have you ever really looked at the aggressive, apple-cheeked athlete in his proper power perspective? Just the other day, at only 31 years old, he became just the eighth player in the major leagues ever to hit 400 home runs in a career. Babe Ruth leads, naturally, with 714, followed by Jimmy Foxx, 534; Ted Williams, 521; Mel Ott, 511; Lou Gehrig, 493; Stan Musial, 464; Mickey Mantle, 406, and Mathews, 402. Mathews is shooting not only at Ott's National League record, but he also has high hopes of exceeding 600 homers. A Hitter's Hope "There's no reason why I shouldn't have at least half a dozen years more," the 6-1, 200-pound lefthanded hitter said in spring training. "And if I can stay in good shape, I don't necessarily have to stop at six more years. I'd be only 37." To threaten Ruth's record, Rain Again Holds Up Prep Games Raia-again prevented the 20 state prep tournament baseball games from being held yesterday and manager Roy Newsom announced the same schedule would be played tomorrow. "We wanted to wait until the diamonds dried out," Newsom said. "Also the schools have to arrange for transportation and we have to hire enough umpires, ail of which takes time." District semifinals will be played Thursday and finals Friday.

Seymour Sues Hawks For Additional Salary NEW YORK, April 30 (UPI)-Ben Kerner, owner of the St. Louis Hawks of the National Basketball Association, was served today with a subpoena by former coach Paul Seymour, who claimed the Hawks owe him a season's pay. Seymour coached the Hawks throughout the entire 1960-61 season, but was fired after the first 14 games of the next campaign. He was replaced by Fuzzy Levane.

I I mum .,. ,i, urn if n a. n mull rm-tfir m however, Mathews would have to go until he was 40 at his career home-run pace, a 36.3 average he failed to approach last year. For the first time in 10 seasons he didn't hit 30 or more homers. Handicapped by a sflioulder injury, Mathews dropped to 29 homers and fell off to a .265 batting average and 90 runs batted in. The injury was only part of his trouble. Ed decided a year ago that he would disregard his home run output and concentrate on improving a .285 lifetime batting average. He had hit .306 the year before. "So just going for base hits instead of the long ball, I fell off both ways because I wasn't swinging naturally," Mathews . said. "I can't swing for home runs, because I press and i;inge at the ball when I do, bjt I can and' have quit worrying about the average. "I'm just swinging the bat." . Aaron and Others Mathews, just swinging a bat, is a devastating hitter, but he's really only one of two Braves who could break Ott's National League home-run record. If Henry Aaron can avoid serious injury and retain his skill another half-dozen years, the rawhide righthanded hitter probably would go over beyond 511, too. The trick, as record-breakers like Ruth, Ty Cobb and Stan Musial proved, is to be able to play and well up to 40 or even beyond. Musial's 6000 total bases, like Ruth's 714 homers and Cobb's 4191 base hits, are apt to withstand the pressure of time. Most records, however, are merely made to be broken.
