^ C Of E Is Ahead liat A Race By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS College of Emporia, riding the crest of a 9-game winning streak, has taken over undisputed possession of the top spot in the Kansas conference. The Presbies, augmented by mid-season eligiWes, bounced Kansas Wesleyan 71-43 Saturday night. It's still a tight battle in the conference with seven of the ten teams playing at a .500 clip or better. Southwestern is one-half game behind C. of E. and Sterling and Bethel are one back. Ottawa and Bethany won twice each last week to climb into contending roles. Two key games are slated Tuesday night. College of Emporia plays at Bethel and Sterling at Southwestern. Ottawa is host to Pittsburgh Takes A Costly Timeout By TED MEIER Associated Press Sports Writer Don't shed any tears for E Jucker and George Ireland wh coach the nation's top-ranked col lege basketball teams, Cincinna and Chicago Loyola. Save your sympathy for Bol Timmons, coach at the Universit; of Pittsburgh. Jucker and Ireland had few worries Saturday night as thei unbeaten teams rolled up thei 35th and 20th straight victories respectively. The No. 1 Bearcat national champions, walloped SI Louis 70-40 and the No. 2 Ram biers trampled Iowa 86-68. Timmons, however, was per haps the most unhappy coach ii the land. Inadvertently he cost hi unranked Pitt Panthers a surpris victory over West Virginia, th leaders in the Southern Con ference and a team which ha been in The Associated Press Top Ten several times this season. This is what happened: Behind by 16 points early in the second half, the Panther rallied on the hot shooting o Dave Roman to take the lead With three seconds left the Moun taineers went ahead 68-67 on Tom Lowry's push shot. Pitt called time. When play resumed Roman threw in a 40-foot jump shot tha brought the sellout crowd of 5,222 at the Pitt Field House to its fee screaming. But hold-there's a whistle on the play. No basket, no basket. As the Pitt students, who had alreadj hoisted Roman to their shoulder for a victory march, screeced in protest the referee ruled that jus before Roman shot, two of his teammates, Tim Grgurich and Ben Jinks, had called time. There was one second left, time for one more shot. But this time Jinks' jumper fell short. So in stead of a 69-68 Pitt victory, West Virginia won 68-67. "I felt real bad," said Timmons in an understatement. "I knew time was out when Roman scorec because those were the instructions I signalled from the bench.' Ottawans Win Pin Doubles MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) Rolling on the final squad, Sterling Legion No. 2 posted a 3,196 during the weekend to win the team championship of the five- week American Legion state bowling tournament The McPherson Tigers, leaders the previous two weeks, were second with 3,162.

If Colorado wins, the talented and veteran Buffaloes will be in command. If Oklahoma State wins, it likely will be a four-team race with only one game separating the top four —provided also that Iowa State beats Nebraska at Ames and Kansas State defeats Missouri at Manhattan tonight. Colorado would still be in first place with a 5-1 record in the event of an Oklahoma State victory but Iowa State would be right behind at 6-2 with K-State and Oklahoma State next, both at 4-2. Colorado has rolled to seven straight victories, five in the league, since losing to Kansas in the first round of the Big Eight tournament Dec. 26. If Iba's young club doesn't defeat Colorado, this will be the picture: The eighth-ranked Buffs will have four vital road victories in their 6-0 record, with five of their last eight games on their home court where they have won 20 straight. What's more, the two- game Oklahoma sweep would give them an edge over Iowa State, which lost twice in Oklahoma. Kansas, the tournament champion now in seventh place, hopes to start a comeback at Oklahoma Tuesday when Al Correll, talented 6-3 senior, will be eligible. Correll played with Wayne Hightower and Bill Bridges on the 1960 co- champs and 1961 runners-up. Huskers Win Swim Meet LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP)-The Cornhuskers of Nebraska won seven of 11 events and a 55-40 dual swimming meet victory over Kansas Saturday. Bill Murdock, Kansas team captain, set a pool record with 2:24.5 in the 200-yard breaststroke. CLOSE QUARTERS - It seems like odd place for bulldozer to be operating but it has purpose. Bulldozer was lifted by crane into railroad car to crack loose load of chat. Chat, which apparently had some moisture in it, was frozen solid in five cars on siding at Kismet. Since chat was needed for construction work, bulldozer was put to work.

(AP)-A gang armed with a submachine gun and a pistol with a silencer raided a dice game in Jefferson County early Sunday and robbed more than 30 men of at least $4,500 in cash and jewelry, a county official said. Another report placed the loot at more than $30,000. Prosecutor Branson Rollings- worth said the robbery occurred at the Lake Holliday resort about six miles southwest of Maxville. Maxville is near the soutli edge of St. Louis. The gang, believed to include at least six men, reportedly entered the house around midnight and stayed until 3 a.m. The report said they forced the gamblers, most of them from St. Louis, to disrobe to their underwear. The gunmen then went through the clothing, taking money and everything else of value. Hollingsworth said he was told the gunmen tore up the house, apprently trying to find more money. He said an intensive investigation has been ordered and that he will meet today with Capt. William Barton of the Missouri Highway Patrol and Sheriff Arch McKee. Capt. Barton said some of the players were picked up by a car in St. Louis late Saturday night and taken to the game. He declined to release the victims' names, but said three of the More People Buy WURLITZER PIANOS than any other make BUTLER'S players were able to identify four and perhaps more of the robbers. "From the looks of this job," Barton said, "I think we'll just have to keep their names secret until later. Those gunmen knew what they were doing and they did it real smoothly."
