Following South and Austin, Johlfs names Bemidji, Moorhead, Granite Falls, Willfnar, South St. Paul, Min-j netonka, and Red Wing as the top 10 teams in Minnesota, a state in which 486 high school teams play basketball... It will be interesting to see how Johlfs' predictions carry through... Paul Wilke, Albert Lea basketball coach, figures that Mankato is a more balanced team than Owatonna, the outfit that bumped his Tigers a week ago, 63-69... "Balanced scoring is what makes Mankato go," Wilke says. "Owatonna had a good offensive night against us and probably isn't as tough overall as Mankato . . ." The Scarlets dumped the Tigers, 56-48, last Friday to keep a four-game victory string alive .'. . Austin, the other Big Nine team, to compete in last year's state tournament with Mankato (and the winner) gets the next crack at Albert Lea Friday at new Southwest gym. Wilke may see more of that balanced scoring as any member of the Packer team can break a game wide open... Petrich Has 'Restless' Night RED WING COACH PETE PETRICH MUST HAVE HAD A restless night on the bench watching his Wingers lose 64-59 to Win- ped a 56-56 deadlock to give the I shot gave the Reserves a 69-64 visitors the edge with less than four minutes left. Guard Dave Owen cinched matters for Mankato when he counted two buckets and a free throw for a seven-point spread. Boike then slimmed the lead to 63-60 with a bucket and a pair of free throws, but Eral retaliated with two baskets for another seven-point lead. Don Slupe and Boike again moved the Blue Devils within three points before Jim Flanagan's long Baseball Mourns as Death Claims Famed Tris Speaker ona . . . The Winhawks cashed in from the free throw line and it was the first loss for Red Wing in 25 Big Nine Conference games — a streak extending back to the 1955-56 season . . . The Wingers were charged with 29 fouls as officials W. Lambert and H. Streich kept busy tooting the whistle and in the closing minutes Petrich rushed on the floor to protest a foul. Before the smoke cleared and Petrich left the floor, he was charged with five technical fouls ... On the free throw line, Winona dropped 30 gifters compared to three by the Wingers, but the Hawks were outscored 28-17 in field goals ... • Red Rehwaldt, whose Faribault team snapped a 22-game losing streak in the Big Nine by dumping Northfield, 56-51, credited rebounding as the big factor in the victory. "I've never seen anything like the way the boys came up with those rebounds," he grinned as the happy Falcons paraded him in a "victory ride" following the game ... Marmesh Named All-Conference CORNER CHATTER — Brian Marmesh of Austin was named to the recent All-Minnesota Independent School League football team. Marmesh played regular fullback for Shattuck school at Faribault ... Changes in basketball rules this season are conspicuous by their absence. This wasn't always so as basketball rule revisions In the past have been frequent. About the only new rule which is noticeable to the average fan is the one which affects numbers on jerseys . . . Neither No. 1 nor Z may be used alone on any jersey, and no digit greater than 5 shall be used in any number. The new rule is for sake of clarity when the referee signals the official scor- cr on fouls. The penalty for wearing an illegal number is a technical fool.... Looks like this number rule is also a good thing for basketball jersey manufacturers ... Four starters from last year's top-notch Northfield team play.

RATLIFF HUBBARD, Tex. (AP) - Tristram (Tris) Speaker, the famed "Gray Eagle of the major leagues, died Monday and baseball mourned the passing of one of its greatest stars. A heart attack claimed the man who was called the finest center fielder of all time. He died after a fishing trip at Lake Whitney, 30 miles west of his home here. From the high echelons and from the bushes of baseball came messages of sorrow and Speaker was lauded for the tremendous contribution he made to the game he loved so well that he played it for $40 a month. The body was brought to Hubbard and is at the Wolfe Funeral Home. Interment will be in Fairview Cemetery where his father and mother and other kinsmen are buried. Speaker and a fishing crony, Charles Vaughn, had pulled their boat into the dock after an afternoon on Lake Whitney. The 70- year-old member of Baseball's Hall of Fame collapsed and died. Dr. John Lathom of Whitney, the attending physician, certified on Speaker's death certificate that the cause was coronary occlusion. By SHELDON SAKOWITZ Associated Press Sports Writer A new college basketball era may be dawning for Northwestern long a stepchild among Big Ten titans. Meanwhile, once-mighty Kansas, a perennial Big Seven threat, faces lean days this season without Wilt (The Stilt) Chamberlain. Northwestern, picked with Purdue as the Big Ten preseason favorites, is justifying the evaluations thus far. The Wildcats,. 10th in the first Associated Press weekly poll, turned back Notre Dame, No. 11 in the listings, 68-63 Monday night. after two seasons at Kansas. Joe Ruklick clicked for 30 points as Northwestern snapped Notre Dame's streak of 18 straight victories at home. The lead changed TRIS SPEAKER Speaker had had one previous heart attack—in 1954.

Doak Roberts, president of the Cleburne club, told about it years later. Roberts had driven in his bright new buggy to the field where Speaker was playing a semipro game.

These ratings were based on the results o: games through last Saturday, Dec 6, and on the opinions of 102 participating sports writers and broadcasters. Cincinnati's high rating unques tionably was based in part on the fact that the Bearcats still have All America Oscar Robertson while such stars of last season as Wilt Chamberlain and Elgin Bay lor have gone on to pro ball.

Grab Early Lead During the first half it looked like Mankato would win in a breeze. Four times they were out by 12 points, but thanks to the persistent sniping of Rensink, who kept the Blue Devils' hopes alive, the visitors failed to get in the "killing" blow until the closing moments. Superior marksmanship by Man kato was another reason for the early lead, but they suddenly cool- d off when the Blue Devils, in he second half, decided it was ime to play a little defense. Despite giving away inches, Aus in showed, to good advantage re bounding during the spurt as time and again Nelson, Boike and Gran cleaned the boards. Booher Is Injured Some of the spark faded when he Blue Devils lost guard Roger Jooher for the final 10 minutei >ecause of an ankle injury. Whili 3ooher counted only two free throw us brilliant floor play and defensi helped stall Mankato's attack. Not enough can be said of Ren sink, who was the best player on ,he floor. He counted 16 points in the first half and added 12 dur ng the uprising, including eigh straight free throws. Boike finished with 11 points while Nelson added 10 and Gran nine. Leading Mankato was Eral, wh finished with 19 points off eigh field goals and three free throws. He was effective with a hook shot and a tough rebounder. Other than Eral, Owen was the only other Mankatoan in double figures with 12, but of the 15 men used, 11 counted points. Free Throws Help Once the Blue Devils caught fire, Mankato made the mistake of playing rough, and it cost them on the free throw line. While they outgunned Austin 31 to 20 from the field, the Blue Devils had a wide 24 to 9 free throw advantage. A more consistent scoring attack by the Blue Devils would have turned the victory. They had 78 attempts and Mankato got off 80 shots. The loss was the second in four starts for Cuff's club, which returns to action next Monday night when they play Bethany JC in a Southern Minnesota Junior College Conference test at Mankato.

Lubanski rolled a 36-game total of 7,778 to finish far ahead of the field. Mrs. Ladewig, already seeded into the finals, finished with a total of 5,111 pins for 24 games. This gave her a 173-pin edge over second place Jere Price of Fort Big Ten basketball race with a 68-63 victory over Notre Dame Monday night. The score might not mean too much but the fact Northwestern pulled off the victory at South Bend .supplied the big surprise. The Irish rarely lose at home.

Hoe Ruklick provided the neces sary punch with 30 points while Phil Warren added 15 and Willie Jones 11.

But when the 6-7 Minnesota scoring ringmaster fouled out in the second overtime it was all over. It didn't help that Whitey Johnson and Curt Thalberg had preceded him to the bench with five fouls or that Jerry Butler followed him.
