Team's Champions Are Picked By GAVLE TALBOT NEW YORK (AP) — We are indebted to Garclnar Mul- lov's sprightly "World Tennis" for a full and obviously uncensored account of the 1954 U.S.S.R. tennis championships held recently at Tallin, which is described as the fastest growing center of the sport in that country. There Is no clue as to whether the magazine's Moscow expert. John N. Washburn, Is or has been a resident of the U.S.S.R. It can only be said that he writes o[ his favorite athletic event with a fine, steady hand. "The individual star ot the 1854 outdoor championships." he records, "was S. Andrecv, who won the men's singles crown nnd was a member of the winning men's doubles and mixed doubles learns. B. Novlkov, won by Andrcev by default. The match had been set for 10 a.m., and the rules state that players must arrive 10 minutes before a match. Needed Rent "Novikov was several minutes late, whereupon the corps of officials defaulted him and declared Andreev the winner despite the protest of comrade Novllcov. "The fact that Novlkov's nuur- lerflnal match lasted * hours and doubles and mixed aouoies ICHIHS. terllnal malcn lasteo i nouis nnu This past March the new chum- | jo minutes may have caused him pion won the men's indoor championships for the third time. "The great success enjoyed by B. Andreev in Soviet tennis circles this year is due In part lo the absence of his bitter rival, N. Oze- lov. the 183 U.S.S.R. champion, who failed to compete in either the outdoor or indoor championships. What Happened "I have as yet been umible to discover whether tennis player Ozerov has had his bead lopped off In a political purge, or whether he simply withdrew from tennis for physical reasons deriving from & bad right knee, which was operated on back In 1951. In any case. it is most unusual for a chnmplon In the Soviet Union In lail to defend his title without this fuel being mentioned in the Soviet, press." It should be inserted here that this sort of thing almost never bap- pens in American tennis circles. K & defending champion doesn't show up for the nationals someone is sure to comment upon his absence. "The most talked about mulch of Ihe whole tournament." Uie Washburn account continues, "was the semifinal match o( the men's singles between S. Andreev and ,0 seek an additional llv minutes •in the sack' that fatal morning. In any case, the prevailing opln- on, as expressed by reporter 8. Aleksandrov, was that Justice hnd oeen done and that this would be a good lesson for the young athletes of the U.S.S.R." There Is no Indication that B. Novukov was naked what- he thought. Ranter, Olson On TV Tonight RICHMOND, Cnlif. (VPi —. Garth Panter, whose only ring finewe Is to bore in and keep swinging, faces the slightly Herculean Job tonight of trying to beat the world middleweight champion, Carl Bobo Olson.

A nasty cut oh the right index finger added new fuel lo retirement rumors which were already persistent because of his age— he'll be 38 In February—and a chronic back ailment. He cut the finger to the bone in a shower room incident, last Thursday In Colorado Springs, Colo., following deer -hunt. Wllh tills development, there are three big question marks surrounding his baseball future: 1. Whether the grafting operation performed aJler the accident will prevent the crippling of his pitching hand. 2. How his back feels In spring training. 3. Success of his oil business, which will determine whether he wants to pilch another year for the $30.000 or so he can expect to earn. Reynolds, who htis often hinted at retirement the past two years. Indicated he won't make his decision until he sees how the cut actually affects his pitching.

SWC Teams in Fine Physical Form for Crucial Weekend Sudbury Wins In Y League Lange Defeated 13-6 in Grade School Contest Scoring two early touchdowns and hanging on for dear life in the later stages, the Sudbury football team romped to a 13-6 victory over a stubborn Lange Wildcat outfit at Little Park yesterday afternoon in "Y" Grade school play. The winners posted both their scores in the opening quarter. The first was good for 29 yards on a statue of liberty reverse, in which Gary Lendennie dropped back into punt formation on fourth down, and after faking the punt, handed off to Shelton, who reversed to Bobby Wamble. The Lange defense had been fooled completely and Wamble had clear sailing down the right sideline. The try for extra point was smeared. Later in the quarter, Barry Hughes intercepted a Lange pass near midfield. Lynn Hearn picked up a first down thru the middle on a trap and Lendennie picked up 8 in the same spot. On the rie'xt. play, Wamble scattcd 9 yards around right end for the score and did the same thing to score the extra point, making it 13-0. In the second half. Lange came back with a determined offensive and outplayed the Greenies, but were able to count only six points, which came in the third period on Jerry Hill's pass to Billy Todd, good for 12 yards. Following the kick-off, Sudbury racked up one first down but turn- Porkers Again Lock Gates For Full-Scale Scrimmage Br THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Southwest Conference football teams should be in their best condition of the season Saturday when they play thre« important games. Even Baylor, which has gone into every contest thus far with at least one keyman on the injury list, expects to be at full strength as the Golden Bears make their bid to stay in the championship race against Texas. Word today was that the starting tackles, James Ray Smith and Bill Green, who have been handicapped by various hurts, will be able to give their all against the Longhorns. And with L. O. Dupre, heart of the ground attack, his robust self again the Bears should be at their height. Expelled Players Back Texas will have several of the players put out of action because of disiplinary measures back to bolster its resurgence that was evidenced in a terrific second half against Southern Methodist last week. Tackle Herb Gray, who was demoted from the starting lineup, will be one of the chastened player", due to return to action. •The boys have paid their penalty," said Coach Ed Price. "They have been working hard and bled and Lunge recovered as the fourth quarter began. A drive to the Sudbury 7 yard mark gave promise of another score, but the Greenies braced and took the ball on clowns. They, in turn were unable to move and a poor punt gave the ball lo Lange on the Sudbury 15. but time ran out as Lester Dunnam took a pitchout and brought it to the Sudbury 6. deserve an opportunity to play Saturday." Meanwhile, Rice Coach Jesl Neely came mighty close to predict* ing his team would give Arkansas the light of its life In the conference headliner at Little Rock. "I think our boys are thoroughly conscious that the blue chips will be down Saturday and will give it an all-out effort," said Neely as he drove his Owls hard for the game with unbeaten, untied Arkansas on a day when Rice must win to stay in the race. Backs Dicky Moegle and Morris Stone missed scrimmage yesterday but they'll be in the thick of the workout today. Arkansas scrimmaged behind locked gates. It was the first week in three for the Razorbacks to have a full-dress scrimmage. There were no injuries among the Razorbacks. Texas A&M was told by scout Jerry Claiborne that the Aggies would meet the best football team of the season Saturday when.they play Southern Methodist at Dallas. At Dallas Coach Chalmer Woodard had some words of warning for his Southern Methodist team, too. He said A&M Would be the best conditioned team SWO has gone up against. Southern Methodist and A&M both are devoid of injuries. Texas Christian doesn't play * game this week but the squad went through a tough workout yesterday.
