Circus Star NEW YORK (AP)-An 18-year- old blue-eyed blonde—admittedly nervous—made circus history in the center ring Wednesday night. Vicki Unus, featured as La To-| ria, made her New York debut as a star performer in the Ringling Bros, and Barnum & Bailey Circus, in which her father also stars. "She came direct from high school into the big show," said Franz F. Unus proudly. "It's never happened before." Few in the opening night audience knew that the aerialist who twisted through 110 electrifying giant swings was the daughter of the man who balances himself on one finger. But this is circus tradition. Fre- j quently the following generation of an established circus name will take another name under which tc perform. Vicki can trace her Big Top history through several generations. The climax of her act, 25 feet above the netless arena, is one she spent four years developing while a student at the high school in Sarasota, Fla., winter home of the circus. She has been performing it for two months as the show worked its way north for the 93rd season, and Madison Square Garden was her dream. Suspended by one arm from a wrist strap, she spun herself through the dizzy succession of aerial cartwheels. "When I get the rhythm, I can tell after 50 whether I'm with it," she said afterwards, disappointed that loose rigging had held her to 110. Unus said she had hoped to do 200, forty more than her best so far. Twos, Threes, Fours Equal A First For ( xmis tonight and are hoping that le home court theory holds. In their last 13 home playoff ames, however, the Hawks are ust over the .500 mark. 7-6. And where Boston and Cincinnati are ted 2-2 in a best of seven, the ome team hasn't won yet. The Boston Celtics kept that mark intact Wednesday night, whipping the Royals 128-110 in Cincinnati and squaring the match at 2-2. The series resumes in Boson Saturday.

Hawks Must Do Better By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The St. Louis Hawks, down 2-0 in their best-of-7 Western Divi sion final playoff, would like noth ing better than to believe in the home court myth.

Picks LA First, Cincy Second By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP)Where will lightning strike this year in the National League? Milwaukee in 1958, Los Angeles in 1959, Pittsburgh in 1960, Cincinnati in 1961, San Francisco in 1962 and now what? Five different pennant winners and two playoffs in the last five years make a fellow wary ol sticking his neck out — especially one who picked the St. Louis Cardinals to win last year. They finished sixth. You can make a strong case for Los Angeles, Cincinnati ant San Francisco. St. Louis must be considered. Pittsburgh and Mil waukee are outsiders. The Phil lies are the real long shots. The Cubs, Colts and Mets just hope to be better. When you came to Florida it was your opinion that the Dod gers should win. A look at Cincinnati and a talk with Fred Hutchinson tipped the scale towarc the Reds. Then reports from Arizona visitors about the brighl young men who couldn't crack the Giants' line-up revivec memories of San Francisco's gal lant fight against the Yankees in the World Series. For better or worse, this is the way it looks from here and we're already ducking pop bottles from out San Francisco way: 1. Los Angeles 2. Cincinnati 3. San Francisco 4. St. Louis 5. Pittsburgh 6. Milwaukee 7. Philadelphia 8. Chicago 9. Houston 10. New York But Finsterwald Has Chance, Too AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP)-The 27th Masters Golf Tournament starts today and veteran Dow Finsterwald finds himself in the role of Hie forgotten man. Most of the pre-tournament speculation has centered on golf- dom's ruling triumvirate—Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus. Finsterwald and the other 80 competitors have been lumped together as "the field." There is a tendency to forget that last year's Masters involved a 3-way playoff. And one of the three men all square at 280 after 72 holes was Dow Finsterwald, an Ohioan who registers out of Tequesta, Fla. Finsterwald played poorly in the 18-hole tie-breaker, taking a 77 to Palmer's winning 68 and Player's 71. But the fact remains that for 72 holes ne matched Palmer and Player stroke for stroke — and finished 11 shots ahead of Nicklaus. Finsterwald isn't concerned about his "forgotten man" role, nor is he predicting he'll whip the "big three" and the rest of the best the game has to offer. But he insists there is always a chance. "This is a tournament where you either do or you don't," he said. He said the Augusta National golf course, with its demanding par of 36-36—72, is playing about the same as last year Both Nicklaus and Palmer, who had been having trouble scoring well earlier this week, closed out practice with subpar cards for nine holes. Nicklaus, who beat Palmer in a playoff for the National Open title last year, had a 4-under-par 32, Palmer a 35. Palmer is seeking his fourth Masters title, something no other golfer has achieved. The 85-man field will be trimmed after the first 36 holes The top 44 players, plus ties, 01 anyone within 10 shots of the mid point leader, will qualify for tin final two rounds. By FRED THOMPSON Ottawa University's ever - improving track squad served notice yesterday that it is a power to contend with in this year's Kansas Conference race. Baker and the College of Emporia were the losers in yesterday's triangular outing held on the Braves' Cook Field. A glance at C. of F's 10 first place winners would indicate a Presbie victory, but Ottawa's seconds, thirds and fourths gave the Braves a decisive edge in overall points, 78% to Emporia's 60- J /4 to Baker's 23. C of E's Manly Tubbs not only aced to victories in the 100, 120 ligh hurdles and 220 'ow hurdles iut also anchored the Presbie win- ling mile relay team to emerge s the meet's high point-getter vith 16V4 points. Emporia also had two double winners. Royce McClanahan ook the 880 on the windy oval with a 2:05.2 clocking and the mile in 4:39. Bob Phillips edged Ottawa's Stan Hudson in the 220 with a 23.0 time and was the winning shot putter with a 47- oot, 1-inch effort. For the victorious Braves, freshman Daryl Randel won a firsl and a second. The slender dis- ance runner warmed up for his 2-mile specialty with a seconc place in the mile run and then proceeded to an uncontested tri umph in the 'deuce.' While his sprinting on the last lap appear ed to make him a "come from behind" winner, actually he wa finishing a lap ahead of the fielc Baker was not without its brigh spots as Steve Dick came u with one of the league's bette broad jumps, a lean of feet 2 1/ 4 inches, and Ron Sears For Years and Years of Lasting Beauty 'on the discus with a heave of 35 feet 11% inches.
