Rebuilding Job Faces Owl Coach By SHELDON SAKOWITZ Associated Press sports Writer When asked to evaluate his team's chances for the 1958-59 college basketball season, Coach Harry Litwack of the Temple Owls declined a prediction. "Let's wni* and see," he said. Now, after Temple's fourth game, he knows this is a season of rebuilding for the Owls. Lose to Princeton Temple lost to Princeton 90-54 Wednesday night for its third straight setback after an opening same victory over Gettysburg. The other losses came at the hands of Lehlgh find second- ranked Kentucky. Last season Temple won third place in the NCAA Tournament and ranked fifth In the final Associated Press poll. With Guy Rodgers, an All America selection, and four other first- stringers graduating, Litwack has only two experienced returnees in Bill (Pickles) Kennedy and Ophie Franklin to go with a sophomore-studded squad, which lacks • height. A 32-point harvest by Jim Branigan spearheaded Princeton to its success over Temple. All five Tiger starters hit double figures while sophomore Bernle Ivens topped the Owls with 18 points. None of the nation's top 10 teams was scheduled' Wednesday. Among the second 10 only Oklahoma State and St. John's (NY1, each tied for 20th place, saw-action. Both won handily, St. John's outclassing Brooklyn College 93-68 and Oklahoma State crushing Texas 66-39. St. John's cleared its bench early as sophomore Tony Jackson and Captain Alan Seiden sparked the Redmen. Arlen Clark collected 30 points with Oklahoma Slate cruising \o a 35-17 advantage at the half.

The cadet senior, acknowledged as the best all-around college football player in the country, fretted about missing two days of hockey practice during the week before the Army team leaves for Providence, R. I., Friday. "We have a 1-1 record so far," he explained, "and with football taking up part of the practice season, I sure do need the work. My legs are just getting used to the transition from football. You use different muscles skating than running." Someone asked if a quick switch back to the gridiron for five days in prepping for the North • South All Star game in Miami Christmas night would not bother him. Dawkins refused to be concerned. Nor would he show any concern, pro or con, over a fabulous fo ball career he concluded by leading the Cadets to a 22-6 victory over Navy Nov. 29. It capped Army's first unbeaten season since 1949, marred only by a 14-14 tie with Pitt, and made Dawkins the irst West Point Heisman winner Red Wings Triumph Threaten Canadiens Montreal's grip on first place in the National Hockey League wasn't quite so secure today.

Unfortunately, I wouldn't play against him that day but from the bench it sure looked ike he had a great day against us." Dawkins, a Royal Oak, Michigan native, missed the Pitt game with an injured leg. Someone asked the well built, >lond thatched cadet leader who s Mr. Everything at the Point if he'd thought far enough into the 'uture about marriage. "Oh no," the 21-year-old said, 'No marriage yet.
