The Gusties drew the book—a 41-12 defeat in the NAIA playoff semifinals Saturday that took some of the sheen off a splendid Gustavus season. But the loss worked no disgrace on the Minnesota team, which had mowed down'eight regular season opponents but lacked the speed and made too many misplays in its eagerness to catch up against Arizona State. For a team which took a four- touchdown lacing Gustavus looked remarkably respectable in the statistics. The Gusties had an edge of 15 to 11 in first downs, gained 139 yards rushing to IBS for State and 144 passing to 155 for the Lumberjacks. But fumbles and interceptions plus State's breaka way speed stowed away the game in a hurry for Flagstaff. With it went the right to meet Northeastern Okla- home in the NAIA Holiday Bowl game in Florida Dec. 20. Gustavus had one moment of splendor, when quarterback Bob Swiggum and end Rollie Hanks teamed on a 76-yard pass play for a 6-0 Gustie lead early in the game. Gustavus' offense started boomeranging ahorUy afterward. Flagstaff recovered a fumble on the Gustie 4 and Ted Sorich passed to Al Rex for a touchdown. Sorich's kick made it 7-6. In the second quarter Lou Casillas filched a Swiggum pass and Bill McCormick scooted two yards to score six plays later. Then Earl Randolph raced 44 yards with another interception for a 20-6 State lead. Later in the period Flagstaff's Ray Harris invaded the Gustie backfield to steal a handoff and McCormick scored again from the 10. It was 27-6 at the half. Sorich's 42-yard pass to Rex gave State a fifth touchdown in 21 carries Carpenter with 100 more for the Norm Van Brocklin was the Eagles' only threat. He completed 15 of 27 passes,for M yards and one touchdown.

But Martin said he still hadn't enumerated all the good points of the Falons. "They use flankers, double-wing T, split ends, slot backs and just about everything that goes with a fine offense," Martin added. "We're going to have a lot of trouble with that crowd."

Prior to Sunday's Eagle-Browns game, Van Buren so told Brown with some reservations. Brown got 138 yards rushing as the Browns won 21-14. He now has 1,379 against Van Buren's 1949 record of 1146.

Despite the backfire, the Lions threatened to knock the Giants out of contention. Jim Martin had a perfect shot at a 25-yard field goal for the three points that would have given Cleveland the undisputed title. But Svare, a 27-year-old line backer from Washington State, barreled through and got his left hand on the ball. A New York player fell on the ball and the Giants waltzed through the remaining seconds. Svare explained 'the blocked kick: "Three of us worked it out," he said. "Cal Karilivacz was to take out Roger Zatkoff, Andy Robustel li was to get Jerry Perry, and 1 was to shoot through the opening and go for the kicker. It worked out just that way. This was the biggest play of my career." Detroit Coach George Wilson said he ordered the fourth-down gamble that boomeranged. The Lions needed 2 yards for a first down, and had possession on their own 43. Yale Lary took the snap in punt formation, but tried to circle end. He was driven out of bounds after a two - yard pickup. Five plays later, after Charlie Conerly passed 35 yards to Bob Schnelker, the Giants scored. "1 called the play," said Wilson 'I saw the Giants were open. This same play has worked three times for us in the past. It's one of those risks. Either it works or it doesn't. So I'm a bum." .750 .500 .-129 .227 Sacred Heart parlayed good scoring balance for a 63-33 victory over Mankato Loyola in a Ravoux Conference basketball gam* played Sunday at Waseca. Jerry McLoone led the winners with 19 points, while UVerne Szyszka added 11 and Jerry Anthony had 10. For Loyola, Jim Bierman set the pace with nine points. The victory moved Sacred Heart into third place ia the Ravoux race behind Winona Cotter and Austin Pacelli, both unbeaten. Sacred Heart boasts a 2-1 record.

In a home-and-home weekend series, the Nats whipped the Celtics 101-92 at Boston Saturday and then repeated Sunday night with a 108-104 victory As the result, the New York Knickerbockers, who were idle Sunday after losing 99-92 to Detroit Saturday, took over first place by a half-game margin over the Celtics, Syracuse's two victories moved the Nats into a third place tie in the division with the Philadelphia Warriors.

M °° aStateb6W Older Hands Carry Load for Gophers MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota's sophomores may be the Gopher basketball team of the future but older hands carried the load on opening night and probably will again tonight in a meeting with Iowa State at Ames. Except for the use of Curt Thai- berg as a starting guard and Dick Erickson at forward, Coach Ozzle Cowles stuck with his veterans in a 77-76 victory over Vanderbilt Saturday night. Jerry Butler appeared briefly and Cowles' other sophomores didn't play. It seems evident, however, that the 6-6 Butler is earmarked for heavy service at center or forward, possibly as a starter, within a few games. Erickson and Thai- berg also figure in Cowles' top seven or eight and Paul Lehman, is certain to move into that group as soon as his knee heals. Against Vanderbilt, how ever, Ron and Whitey Johnson and Mario Miller carried the Gophers. Johnson's leadership had been counted on but Miller was a happy surprise to Cowles. Entering the game midway through the first half, he bagged 13 points, 10 on long jump shots, and played aggressively under the boards. Miller is the service vet who started well a year ago but slipped badly when he lost his confidence after a couple of off- form nights. Ron Johnson gave the Gophers the game-winning boost with a 20 point second half after he was checked with three points in the first half. Whitey's two deft passes to him at a crucial stage late in the game, plus a key field goal by the Eau Claire senior, put the Gophers in front to stay. The Gophers made remarkably hard labor out of winning against a team that shouldn't have been that tough for them. Vanderbilt's bullseye shooting from the foul line kept the Commodores in front until Erickson's three point play with 25 seconds of the half left. Erickson finished with nine points, Whitey had 10 and Tnm Benson had 13. Jim Henry of Vanly had 25. Winqs threat to Canadiens By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The pace-setting Montreal Cana- diens clutched a six-game unbeaten string today in the National Hockey League but still saw the pesky Detroit Red Wings as a strong challenger. Ironically, the Wings haven't beaten the high-flying Canadiens all season but their consistent success against other NHL clubs left Detroit only four points from the top rung. Only two weeks ago, the Wings had a brief stay in the top spot before the surging Canadiens bumped them twice. Since, the Wings rebounded for two victories and a tie to climb back into contention. Detroit won one and tied one against the Chicago Blackhawks over the weekend, marking up a 4-3 victory Saturday and pulling out a 2-2 tie in the last 10 seconds Sunday night. Montreal blanked the New York Rangers 6-0 Saturday and whipped Boston 4-1 Sunday. Toronto gave the Bruins a 4-1 licking Saturday and followed with a 2-0 victory over New York Sunday night. In the Detroit game, Glenn Hall, the Chicago netminder, stopped 38 shots by his former mates. He was defending against six men, after Detroit Coach Sid Abel had yanked goalie Terry Sawchuk, when Alex Delvecchio slammed in the tying goal. Austin Dog 2nd in Anoko Field Trial Spammy, owned and handled by Frank Viktora of Austin, placed second in the Open All Age at the Winter Field Trial Anoka, Minn., Sunday. The event was sponsored by the Hennepin County Amateur Retriever club. Austin's three basketball teams play single games this week, but only one attraction will be staged at home. That game goes on tonight at the high school gym where Hal Cuffs Austin JC quint hosts the Mankato State Reserves, beginning at 7:30 p.m. This is the only test for the Blue Devils until they resume Southern Minnesota Junior College Conference action against Mankato Bethany on Dec. 15. The Austin Packers, which toppled Rochester, 57-45, thanks to a fourth period rally, face another Big Nine Conference test Friday at Albert Lea. Austin will be gunning for its fourth straight victory, while the Tigers are seeking No. 1 after three straight setbacks. This contest, which will be played in Albert Lea's new Southwest gym, Is expected to attract a near capacity crowd.

The Wildcats made it two straight Saturday when they dropped Maryland, the Atlantic Coast Conference's defending champion, 66-62. It was an easier victory than the score indicates since the 'Cats moved to a 13-poJnt lead in the final minutes and then coasted home. The Northwestern-Notre Dame contest will feature Joe Ruklick, Northwestern's towering hook-shot ace, against Tom Hawkins, one of the finest all-around players in the" nation. Minnesota and Michigan State, both victorious in their openers "Saturday, also will be in action. Minnesota, 77-76 victory over Vanderbilt, will be at Iowa State, and Michigan State entertains Butler. The Spartans had an easy time Kansas in defeating Detroit, 88-31. Iowa and Wisconsin again will try their luck to the Southwest. Iowa dropped a 65-55 decision to Southern Methodist while Wisconsin was humiliated by Rice, 7M7. Iowa will be at Oklahoma and Wisconsin tackles Southern Methodist. Big Ten teams split even in competition Saturday. Aside from the games previously mentioned- Purdue defeated Missouri, 65-57; Indiana was beaten by Kansas State 82-79 in an overtime struggle; Illinois lost to .Marquette, BOSS; Michigan dumped Kent 83-55, and Ohio State dropped a 77-68 decision to St. Louis University. The Purdue • Missouri game turned into a hot struggle during which Boilermaker Coach Ray Eddy was tossed off the floor in the final minutes. Purdue and Missouri scored a combined 44 field goals which was the same as the number of fouls called against the two clubs. The margin of fictory was eight more free throws made by Purdue. Indiana was beaten on the free throw line. The Hoosiers outsorred State 31-26 from the field but made only 17 free tosses to 30 for the Wildcats. The Shamrocks carry a 3*1 fee* ord against the Yellowjfteketa M they lost a 54-4S decision to Minneapolis Central two weeki ago, Against the Mankato State Reserves, the Blue Devils hope to laufch another victory strteff following a 74-57 setback against Dr, Martin Luther in their last outing. The defeat shattered a two-game victory ride against Owatonna Plllsbury and Waldorf College. Fouls and trouble on the free throw line handicapped the Blue Devils against the Hilltopperi. Cuff plans to use his regular unit against Mankato, which will find Gordon Boike at center, Bill Grant and Jerry Nelson at forwards and Larry Renstnk and Roger Booher at guards. Resink, Boike and Nelson carried the scoring load for the Blue Devils against Martin Luther. One SMJCC game was played Saturday night as Mankato Bethany, one of the title favorites, bumped Dr. Martin Luther, 98-78. In non-conference starts, Rochester JC defeated Itasca JC, 72-62, while Brainerd JC turned back Concordla JC of St. Paul, 82-68. By winning, Bethany takes over undisputed first place in the young SMJCC race. .Austin area teams see action Tuesday night when Kenyon plays at Northfield, Elkton at Eyota, Grand Meadow at Hayfleld, Rose Creek at Little Cedar, Le Roy at Wykoff and Spring Valley at Stewartville. A victory for Northfield will give Big Nine teams a 10-4 advantage, over non-conference rivals. PCC Group Gathers for Final Meeting PASADENA, Calif. (AP)-Members of the Pacific Coast Conference gather today—for what may be their last meeting. Officials said the meeting will deal mostly with routine matters. Preliminary talk's started Sunday night. The meeting will continue through Tuesday. On the agenda are details connected with the end of the Conference June 30. Rugged Cage Schedule to Test Kentucky Early By HUGH FULLEUTON JR. Associated Press Sports Writer Kentucky may not have nearly as good a basketball team as when it won the NCAA championship last spring. Four of the five starting players are gone. But if Coach Adolph Rupp is short of talent, you can bet he aims to find out soon. He is used to being surrounded by better-than-average basketball players. Left this season with only talented Johnny Cox from the team that gained a surprise victory in the NCAA tournament last March, he has put together a squad that has won its first two games. Kentucky thumped Florida State 91-68 in its opener and then outscored % Temple, one of last season's toughest rivals, 76-61 in the Philadelphia Palestra Saturday. This week the Wildcats take on a good Duke team at Durham, N.C., tonight, then return home for games against Southern Meth odist Thursday and St. Louis Saturday. The three games should be a real test for Kentucky. SMU clouted Iowa 65-55 last Saturday and St. Louis made Ohio State its second victim 77-68. These are indeed trying — and traveling — times for the teams like Kentucky that have begun to emerge as possible national powers. West Virginia, rated No. 1 last season in The Associated Press poll but an early loser in the NCAA playoffs, Kansas, Kansas State, Cincinnati, Northwest- Both are unbeaten in two games.
