(AP) The poised and powerful Boston Celtics held off Syracuse 120-107 Saturday and took a 3-1 lead in the National Basketball Association Eastern Division playoff final.

(AP) Bruce C. Campbell's Conestoga caught April Skies an eighth-of-a-mile from the finish and went on to victory in the $118,450 John B. Campbell Handicap at Bowie Saturday. Conestoga, 14-1 in the wagering, won by three-quarters of a length after passing Jerome Derenzo's April Skies on the inside under the urging of jockey Roy L. Gilbert. Cain Hoy Stable's All Hands was three lengths behind April Skies j for third money in the 1 1-16-mile event that was strictly a three-horse race from start to finish. It was the second straight year j that a son of Rough 'n' Tumble ; won the Campbell. The 1960 win-1 ner was Yes You Will. Conestoga paid $30.60, $12.20 and $8.40 April Skies returned S5.50 and $4.40, and All Hands S6.40.

Syracuse surged from 17 points j behind in the third quarter to draw within one point at 75-74, only to see Boston roll up 10 straight points and put the game on ice. The brawl came in the second quarter when Bill Russell, the Boston center, was called for goal - tending. Red Auerbach, the Celtics' coach, raced out to dispute the decision and the fans spilled onto the floor. Jim Luscot-off and Frank Ramsey flailed away as other players, ushers and police managed to stop it. The game was held up for nearly 1 10 minutes before some semblance ! of order was restored. A police man sat beside Auerbach on the Boston bench for the remainder of the game and police accompanied the Celtics to their dressing room at halftime and when the game ended. By DAVE DILES LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) The Detroit Tigers may be shaking their "fat cats" reputation, but their new business-like approach to baseball may not be enough to lift them out of sixth place. For Manager Bob Scheffing, the 1961 season will be one of trial, and he hopes, not too many errors. Veterans call this training camp the best organized and most spirited in years. But the former Chicago Cubs manager needs more than an improved attitude to pump new life into the Tigers. For years the Tigers have been rapped as the most contented group of second division players in baseball. Scheffing is forced to attempt the latest rejuvenation with untried rookies. There are 20 players on the 36-man roster who Cage Coaches Vow To Protect Players Against Gamblers , Chargers' Kemp Led AFL's Pass Pitchers DALLAS (AP) Jack Kemp got his first full-fledged chance at professional football stardom last season and he made the most of it, leading the American Football League in passing. j In pacing the Los Angeles ; Chargers to the Western Division j title, Kemp nailed down the pass-! ing title with 52 per cent comple- and 20 touchdowns. He also h3d the highest average per pass with 7.43 yards. KANSAS CITY (AP) The nation's college basketball coaches, conceding "partial responsibility" for the second scandal to strike the gam; in 10 years, Saturday i vowed to step up their vigilance in protecting players from contact with gambling elements. At the same time, the coaches at their annual convention here followed the National Collegiate Athletic Association's lead in urging more severe legislation from federal and state governments to "strengthen the hands of law enforcement agencies in the exercise of their duties in connection with these scandals." NCAA Executive Director Walter Byers in an interview with The Associated Press earlier this week called for aggressive action by federal and state agencies to control organized gambling and stamp out "despicable characters" who seek to profit through the corruption of sports. A resolution adopted by the National Association of Basketball Coaches Saturday said the coaches "recognize their primary responsibility in influencing the conduct of their players" and pledged "to take aggressive steps by con- were not listed on the Spring roster of 1960. A winter trade brought center fielder Bill Bruton and Scheffing has moved Al Kaline back to his old right field spot and put slugger Rosky Colavito in left. Kick Brown is the number one catcher. At 26, he is trying for a regular job with his third team. The manager says his infield "could be our most pleasant surprise or our biggest disappointment." The key figures are third baseman Steve Boros and second baseman Jake Wood, who have only seven years of minor league apprenticeship between them. The best competition in camp is at first base where Larrv Os borne, the American Association's triple-crown winner of 1960, is trying to unseat Norm Cash, who was the best hitter among Tiger regulars last year. Pitching has been Detroit's strong suit in recent seasons and the Tigers have younger and stronger arms for second line pitching. Jim Bunning, Frank Lary, and Don Mossi form the nucleus for the staff.

By JOHN FARROW Associated Press Sports Writer AINTREE, England (AP) Nicolaus Silver, a 9-year-old gray gelding stumbled at dreaded Be-cher's Brook Saturday but recovered and won the 120th running of the Grand National Steeplechase by 5 lengths from last year's winner, Merryman II. It was the richest running of the world's toughest steeplechase with winning owner, C. B. Vaughan of England, collecting $56,056. Nicolaus Silver, ridden by Bobby Beasley, and Merryman II went over the 29th jump together. But at the 30th and final barrier on Aintree's 5-mile, 856-yard course, the gray horse shoved his neck in front and pulled away in the final quarter mile. Merryman II barely saved second by a neck over O'Malley Point. The field was cut to 35 starters by the late withdrawal of Cannobie Lee, a well-fancied nearly wrecked chances of Nicolaus Silver came as he jumped Becher's Brook the first time of the two circuits around the gruelling course. Eecher's is the sixth jump the first time around, and the 22nd on the final circuit. "He overjumped a bit," said Beasley. "As we landed his head went down and I thought it was all over. But I leaned forward and hung on and he kept going." The Russian horses were competing for the first time in the race on which an Irish Sweepstakes is based. Grifel fell at Becher's Brook the first time around, but jockey Vladimir Prakhov remounted to the cheers of the crowd estimated at 250,000 and continued until after the 16th or water jump. Reljef unseated rider Boris Ponomaren-ko after a hesitant jump at Valentine's Brook, the No. 9 barrier. Nicolaus Silver went off at odds of 28-1. Merryman was the 8-1 second choice. O'Malley Point was luu-6. A late splurge in the betting dropped the Irish-trained Jon-jo from 12-1 to tse 7-1 favorite. He finished seventh.

Udall has warned George Presion Marshall, owner of the all-white Washington Redskins professional football team, that he will be expected to hire Negro players if the team is to play in the new District Stadium. Marshall countered immediately that he would be glad to discuss the matter any time. Udall, in a letter to Marshall Friday said the football owner is in for "a moral argument with the President iand the administration" and even possible criminal prosecution if his team practices discrimination. Udall, himself a professional football fan, wrote Marshall after issuing a new National Park Service rule to prohibit discrimination by teams using the $20-mil-lion stadium.

Thus, if New York notifies the league that St. John's Tony Jackson is its territorial pick, he automatically becomes the Knicks' No. 1 player in the draft and New York skips its first-round turn. Speaking of territorial selections, Cincinnati selected Jerry Lucas, Ohio State's great All America, when he was still in high school. Lucas is only a junior. Only seniors can be selected in the draft itself. ST. LOUIS (AP) National Eas-Vetball Association club owners gather here Monday for their annual player draft, but pickings are slim, indeed. "This is one of the leanest years I can remember,"' said Re'K"--ner, owner of the St. Louis Hawks and one of the shrewdest judces of basketball talent in the business. "We've done more scouting this year than ever before and the Eood pro prospects just aren't there." Chicago, the NBA's ninth and newest franchise, gets the first choice and is expected to select Walt Bellamy, Indiana's fine 6-foot-11 center from New Bern, N. C. After Chicago, the draft order is New York, Cincinnati, Detroit, Los Angeles, Syracuse, Philadelphia. St. Louis and Boston based on won-lost records during the regular season. The new club also gets the first four picks of the second round, plus the last one (No. 22). Chicago drafts ninth in succeeding rounus. with the Knickerbockers picking nati. Pettit was selected for the first. ' seventh straight season. Board on land leased from the Park Service. Marshall didn't say he would hire a Negro player before moving into the stadium in October. What he said was: "I obey the laws. If they change them I'll abide by them. I didn't know the government had the right to tell the showman how to cast the play. "I would consider it a great honor to meet with and discuss this with the President of the United States and would be very appreciative if Mr. Udall would arrange such a meeting. "Yes, I'd like to debate that kid. I could handle him with words. I use I to be able to handle his old man (Joseph P. Kennedy, whom Marshall said he knew in Boston where the Redskins played before 1937)." Asked if he planned to try out any Negro players for next season, Marshall said: "Our roster is closed. The draft is over." The Redskins owner left the door slightly ajar by saying he might add players cf "recognized ability." A Negro has never played for the Redskins. But, Marshall said, "we have had a Samoan, a Hawaiian, Indians and a Cuban in the past. All the other teams we play have Negroes; does it matter which team has the Negroes?" Udall told Marshall that the Interior Department, which will run the stadium through the Washington Armory Board, is changing its regulations "to harmonize our contract policies with the general anti - discrimination policy enunciated by the President a few days ago."
