Aussies' Rip Spaniards To Capture Davis Cup SYDNEY, Australia (AP) — The sun blazed down on center court at 114 degrees, and John Newcombe and Tony Roche /Hazed over it with the same intensity today as Australia retained • the Davis Cup with an easy doubles triumph over the flamboyant Spanish team of Manuel Santana and Luis Arilla The Aussies' 6-3, 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 triumph over the gallant Spaniards gave the boys from Down Under an insurmountable 3-0 lead in the best-of-5 series and kept the big silver cup, emblematic of world amateur tennis supremacy, in Australia for Governor Helps Athlete ,, LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Gov. Edward T Breathitt clayed a major role in sienmg the first Negro to. a Southeastern Conference athletic srant-in-aid. Breathitt entertained the star football player from Louisville at a luncheon at the governor's mansion in Frankfort, then started off on a two-city hop with the athlete that culminated with a visit to the player's mother. the 13th time in the last 20 years. Despite an imported group of 400 Spanish spectators gaily bedecked in red and gold scarves and an appreciative Australian crowd of 8,000 in White City Stadium, the Spaniards seemed to wilt after breaking through in the second set. Santana tired noticeably dur ing the third set, apparently feeling the effects of the 60 game singles match he lost to Fred Stolle Monday, 10-12, 3-6 6-1, 6-4, 7-5. Spain fell behind 2-0 when Roy Emerson whippec Juan Gisbert 6-3, 6-2, 6-2. So the scene was dramatically set for today's matches with the Spaniards facing a win-or-else situation in their first appearance in the Challenge Round and the Aussies deciding to send out the .second-line combo oJ Newcombe and Roche for the clincher. CAPTAIN'S DECISION Australian captain Harry Hopinan, who made the decision to use the rested Newcombe- Roche team rather than come back with Emerson and Stolle, freely predicted that it would be all over after .the doubles match. "I think our boys will win the doubles," he said frankly.' "We want to wrap it up." And that's the way it was with Spain's captain, Jaime Bartoli freely admitting after it was al over: .' • "The Australians were too good,too good."

LANGFORD UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK — Lance Alworth, the San Diego Chargers' lightning-like acrobat who specializes in making difficult catches, today became the first player unamimously .named to the American,.,Football League All-Star team selected -by the United Press International's board of writers. --•••••-• Alworth received all 24 votes cast by the board made up of three writers from each league city'who:.covered the AFL this season. ' ""•- ._. ALL-AMERICA The six-foot, 185-pound., former Arkansas All-America, gained more yardage catching passes than any other player in pro ball in 1965 and had an amazing 23.2 yard average per catch to earn the No. 1 flanker spot for the third straight year. -- Quarterback'Jack Kemp, who hasn't made the "All-Star squad since the original 1960 team, was selected to the first team along with center Jim Otto of Oakland and offensive tackle Tom Mix of San Diego, both of whom have been all-AFL performers since the league started in 1960. Kemp is the first quarterback to be chosen more than once. Lionel Taylor, Denver's split end and a member of the first two All-Star lls, returned to the 1965 unit and guard Bob Least of Any Champ NEW YORK (UPI) _ Emile Griffith won the welterweight championship after only 24 fights,; the least of any.cham- pion of the .division. - Talamini of Houston won a spot for the first time since 1962. Five players made the team for the first time. Tight end Willie Frazier of Houston and tackle Jim Tyrer of Kansas City were picked to the offensive unit and halfback Dave Grayson of Oakland, safety George Saimes of Buffalo and end Roland McDole of Buffalo were placed on the defensive team. Buffalo dominated the team with six representatives followed by San Diego with five and Kansas City with three. All eight teams had at least one player on the two-platoon team.. Other repeaters from last year were Denver's Cookie Gilchrist at fullback and Billy Shaw of Buffalo at guard on offense. Eight members of last season's defensive unit returned this year including halfback Fred Williamson of Kansas City for the fourth straight year and tackles Tom Sestak of Buffalo and Ernie Ladd of San Diego for the third straight season. Earl Faison of San Diego was back at end for the fourth tune in five years, and outside linebackers Bobby Bell of Kansas City and Mike Stratton of Buffalo, middle linebacker Nick Buoniconti of Boston and safety Dainard Paulson of New York were selected for the second year. DIDN'T MAKE IT Most conspicuous by his absence for the defense was New York's outside linebacker Larry Grantham, who held a position on the All-AFL team for four straight years.

New Tire Store 36th and Wall Phone 393-1023 Green Bay is playing the part of the "wounded animal" as had the Baltimore Colts in two previous games while Johnny Unitas and Gary Cuozzo were sidelined by injury. Starr, Hornung, Boyd Dowler and assorted linemen will be carrying mementoes from the Colts on their aching bodies most of the week—and maybe on Sunday. The Browns, meanwhile, have been taking it easy after an early title clinching in their conference. Physically, their problems should be few. SOMETIMES SHABBY And their defense, sometimes shabby during the regular season, has been known to rise to the important occasion- namely, last year's 27-0 shutout of Unitas and the Colts in the title game at Cleveland. In two shots against the West this season, however, the Browns were beaten by the Minnesota Vikings, 27-17, and by the Los Angeles Rams (after the Eastern title clincher) 42-7. Jim Ninowski quarterbacked the Browns in that debacle against the Rams while Ryan, who divides his year between pro football. and bookworming as a mathematics whiz, was resting a leg injury. Woman Bowlers Schedule Event SALT LAKE ^CTTY (UPI)— The first Professional Women Bowlers' Assn. tournament -in Utah has been scheduled for next summer. The Bonneville Kiwanis Club will sponsor the event at Rancho Lanes in Salt Lake City July 29-31. Total tournament prize will be approximately $10,000.

Illinois Wildcats Take On Tough Quintet In WSC Gymnasium Wednesday Coach Ev Cochrane brings his Northern Illinois '.University basketball squad to Ogdeii Wednesday for a game with Weber State College Wildcats. The game is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. in WSC gymnasium. Coach Cochrane's Huskies, a small college power in the Midwest, have done a respectable job early this season .against good university quintets, in tlieir area. " '..".'' Northern Illinois' biggest win to date was an 82-81 triumph over Western Michigan, soon after Western Michigan upset Michigan of the Big .Ten. So Weber Coach Dick Motta isn't expecting a breather Wednesday, His club takes a 4-2 record into the Northern Illinois game, the final contest before the Wildcats head into defense of their Big Sky Conference championship next month. BACK ON COURT Coach Motta gave his club most of last week off, but hit the hardwood again Monday in preparation for the Huskies. He will start four players against the Hawks who are scoring in double figures. Heading the list is All-America candidate Gene Visscher who has Dumped in an average of 19.5 Doints per game. His 11.8 re- Dound average is also best on the club. Greg Harrop, a junior guard, s carrying a 13.1 scoring average, while his running mate on the guard line, Jerry Trice, is averaging an even 13 points. Eddie Tilman is scoring at a 12.3 clip, while the other starter, Bob Belka, carries a 9.5-point average. Coach Motta has been getting *ood help from three reserves, Frank Kitchens, Al Palfreyman and Ted Bryant. Harrop and Trice should have their hands full against Willie Hansen and Roger Dutton. Both'8 Huskie guards played regular a year ago and have carried much of the offensive load this season. Don Nelson, the tallest of the Northern Illinois starters at 6-5, has a great deal of bulk. He is averaging 10 points and nine rebounds a game. On the forward line will be Jack Kilmartin and Richard Hamberg, a couple of accurate shooters. Hansen leads the Huskies in scoring with a 15.0 average. He is followed by Dotton with 13.3. SOPHOMORE SENSATION About ready to break into the Northern Illinois lineup is sophomore sensation Aubrey Hawkins, who has hit for 13 points per, game. Scouting reports indicate he has all the shots and will be a great one. Only his limited varsity experience is holding him back right now, but he has been seeing more action with every game. The Illinois crew likes to run. It takes the fast break at every opportunity,and likes to use the screen and. roll, allowing for a lot of free-lance action. Since the Wildcats also like to run, the contest could be a high scoring affair. After Wednesday's game Weber State prepares for -conference action on Jan. 7 and 8 on the road. It takes on Idaho at Moscow Jan. 7, then faces Gonzaga at Spokane the following night.

Standard-Examiner, Tuesday, Dec. 28, 1965 GOLD WAR FLARES William Eligible for Shrine By DICK DEW UPI Sports Writer BOSTON — Major league aaseball's best-publicized cold war flares hot again next month when the nation's veteran base- Dall writers vote on a Hall of Fame niche for one of their sharpest critics, retired slugger Ted Williams. The one-time "Splendid Splinter" of the Boston Red Sox officially became eligible Monday for election to the "tooperstown, N.Y., shrine when ;he Baseball Writers Assbcia- ion of America distributed 415 jallots to their 10-year 'members. Williams' name was next-toast on a list of 41 players retired from active status for at least five years and eligible or election for the first time. His low berth on the new eligibility . list could not be classified as a slight on the six- ;ime American League batting champion, however, because he players were listed alphabe- ically. Gus -Zernial was the ast man on the list. j The writers, once dubbed 'knights of the keyboard" by Williams, must return their ballots by Jan. 19. If 75 per cent of the scribes list Williams among their 10 nominees, he'll be only the third player in TED WILLIAMS Hall of Famer? modern times to gain the hall of fame in his first eligible shot. Jackie Robinson and Bob Feller were chosen in 1962 at ,he first opportunity. The men doing ' the voting were, for the most part the 'target ' of countless . verbal attacks by Williams as he compiled a .344 lifetime average in a career that began when he was a brash and gangling rookie in 1939 and extended past his 42nd birthday to the end of the 1960 season. "Bush" and "gutless" were among" the many public terms Williams applied to some of the scribes who generally spent more than half their time writing about, him and the rest of it describing the Red Sox. He was once fined a record $5,000 by club owner Tom Yawkey for spitting and making vulgar gestures at booing fans, and the press box. He would often refuse to be interviewed by some writers and was involved several times in a dressing room ban against the scribes. His verbal blasts were not limited to the press. He was quoted at various times during his stormy career in attacks on the Marine Corps, for whom he flew as a combat pilot in both World War II and the Korean conflict, against former President Harry Truman and the late Sen. Robert A. Taft. OPEN PLAY Tuesday All day until 8:45 p.m. HILLTOP 4400 Wash.
