18. The Patty Reporter. Saturday. Aa* U lt t 1MI Favor St. Louis To Take ST. LOUIS (*—The odds appear heavily in faypr of the St. Louis Hawks to wrest the world championship of pro basketball from the Boston Celtics tonight, but Hawks coach Alex Haimutn isn* so sure. St. Louis holds r 3-2 edge in the best-of-seven series for the National Basketball Assn. cham pionship, will be playing on it* home court, and several key Boston players are ailing. "I think we've done great work in getting the edge on them," Han num said as he put his charges through a workout yesterday. BiU Russell, the Boston backboards specialist, was given little chance to play because of severe ankle sprain suffered in Fatlstaff Team In ABC Lead SYRACUSE, N.Y. OB —The St. Louis Falstaffs have taken command of three major categories in the American Bowling Congress. ' They now have to sweat out the remaining 58 days of the event hoping their scores Witt stand up. The massive 3210 team series which the Falstaffs fashioned Thursday night seems relatively secure, since only two higher scores have been recorded in the 55-year history of the congress. Steve Navy's nine-game total of 2033, which put him in command of the all-events division Friday, has some of the earmarks of permanence too. The 1313 amassed by the Joint efforts of Billy Welu (714) and Woody Hulsey (599) in the doubles category Friday seems to be the least likely to standup. Since 1920, when Marvin Erickson and Eddie Krems, Chicago, took the championship with 1301, every winning doubles combination has come up with a better pintail. The Falstaffs record team all- events total of 980t could also stand the test of time. The S & Z Tool & Die team, Cleveland, Ohio, gave the Fal- staffs their first serious challenger Friday night by pounding out a 3107 series for second place. Other changes Friday in the open team standings included a 2972 fifth-place tie effort by Wol- *»erine Express, Muskegon, Mich., and a ninth-place 2963 by Jack Pallat & Son Insurance, Cleveland Heights, Onto. the third playoff game April t.
