HEAVY SCHEDULE 3 Austin Cage Teams to Play Home Contests Austin's three basketball teams will entertain the home fans again this week. Marty Crows'* PacelU elub faces the stlffest assignment with two contests as they continue their drive for the Ravoux Conference title. First, they play Marian at Owatonna Tuesday night in a return game and return home Friday to take on Mankato Loyola. The Shamrocks ride a 8-1 conference record following a thrilling 45-43 overtime victory against Rochester Ixmrdes last Friday and are rated at least an even choice •gainst both opponents. Earlier, Pacelli tripped Marian 40-31, and Loyola, 65-37. A double victory will keep them hot on the trail of front • running Winona Cotter, which is undefeated in seven conference starts. Two other Ravoux games are on tap tomorrow night as Lourdes plays at Cotter and Waseca Sacred Heart travels to Loyola Besides the Pacelli . Loyola game Friday, Marian plays St. Felix at Wabasha and Sacred Heart meets Cotter at Winona. Ove Berven's Austin Packers, which stormed back into the spotlight by a decisive 71-43 verdict over previously undefeated Mankato, entertains Owatonna in a Big Nine Conference contest Friday night. The Packers share first place with Mankato and Red Wing, each with 3-1 records. The Packers (6-1), who were elected as the No. 1 team in the state in the first Minnesota high school basketball writers' poll conducted by the St. Paul Pioneer Press Sunday, are picked to beat Owatonna, which comes here with an overall 4-6 mark. Mike Marineau, regular Packer guard, may miss the contest because of an ankle injury suffered in the Mankato game. The injury was diagnosed as a sprain following an X-ray. Faribault is the only Big Nine team to see action Tuesday night at they play at Kenyon. Other conference games Friday find Albert Lea at Rochester, Red Wing at Northfield and Mankato at Winona. Hal Cuff's Austin Junior College quint hopes to snap a two-game losing streak against Worthingon JC in a Southern Minnesota Junior College Conference start here Wednesday night.

Three Austin area games will be played Tuesday night featured by a Southland Conference test between Lyle and Glenville. Both teams will be out to snap losing streaks. Glenville is without a decision in 37 straight contests, while Lyle has dropped eight in a row. Stewartville plays at LeRoy and Byron at Hayfield in other contests. Winona Defeats Hockey Team 95 Austin's bid for the Southern! Minnesota League'hockey title took a backward turn Sunday when they dropped a 9-5 decision to defending champion Winona at Kaufman Rink.

Carroll counted goals for Winona in the third period as the Merchants were blanked. Beckel provided most of the offense for the Merchants with three goals and an assist. Roger Ludwzg, wiio worked the first and third periods in the net for the Merchants, limited the visitors to three goals. The six goals in the second period were tallied against Gene Mallory.

Score by periods 0-5 2—9 Coaches Mumbling in Big 10 By JOE MOOSHIL The rough-and-tumble Big Ten basketball race has conference coaches praying, mumbling and, id one case, bursting with pride. And tonight, Minnesota Coach Ozzle Cowles probably will resort to one or more of these behavior patterns when he takes his undefeated Gophers to Indiana. Minnesota holds first place and Is the only team without « conference loss. In all probability, this is true only because the Gophers have played but one game— a 79-68 triumph over wlnless Wisconsin. While Minnesota and Indiana (2-1) slug it out for league-leadership tonight, Iowa (1-1) will be at Illinois (2-1) and Michigan (2-1) will be at Wisconsin (0-3). The cause of the prayers, mumbles and pride were Saturdays games in which: Michigan State edged Illinois 9796 in Champaign on Johnny Greens basket with eight seconds to play; Indiana handed Northwestern its first conference loss 76-69 in Evanston; Purdue battered Wisconsin 84-61 in Lafayette and Michigan edged Ohio State 7874 in a regionally televised game in Ann Arbor. MSU Coach Forddy Anderson said after the Illinois victory, "Today was the first time I ever prayed for anything in an athletic contest," The conches who were mumbling were Illinois Harry Combes and Northwesterns Bill Rohr. Their teams were beaten on their home courts and were knocked out of the league lead. Bursting with pride was Indianas wily Branch McCracken, whose tall Hoosiers use a fast break on offense and a zone on de- 'ense. The conference schedule will be ight throughout the week. Aside 'rom the three games tonight, .hree more will be played Saturday. Iowa will be at Indiana, Purdue goes to Minnesota for a regionally televised affair and Northwestern will be at Ohio State. Gophers and Spartans Tie MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - It was just an oversight, Coach John Mariucci said today, that deprived Minnesota of a sweep of its weekend hockey series with Michigan State. The teams tied 3-3 Saturday night. "We forgot what to do In two places," Mariucci said, "in front of our net and in front of theirs. Otherwise we played 190 feet of feood hockey." But the Gophers came out of the two-game set with a victory and tie against a team featuring one of the best goalies in college hockey, Joe Selinger. Selinger turned away 52 Minnesota shots Saturday night, 21 in the second period, to keep the Spartans in the game until Bob Norman drilled a 35-foot scorcher that got past Gopher goalie Mike Doyle at 18:10 of the third period. That tied the score 3-3 and sent the game into a 10-minute overtime that produced no scoring but some fancy net-tending by Doyle and Selinger. Doyle had 39 stops for the game. Stu Anderson, Dave Rovick and Larry Aim got the Gopher goals. Minnesota played without Gary Aim, its strong defenseman who was hurt in the first game of the series. Mariucci said he would be ready for the Michigan Tech series at Houghton bin's weekend. Minnesota has won two games and tied two against major western college opposition. Its overall record is five victories, one defeat and two ties, and it is unbeaten in its last seven games.

(AP Photofax) Concordia Faces Ham line, Duluth in Drive for Title By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Unheralded, impetuous Concordia faces the basketball buzzsaw this week in its hunt for its second title in 27 years. Leading the Minnesota Intercollegiate Conference with five straight victories the Cobbers run into Hamline on the Piper court Tuesday night and then draw defending champion Duluth Branch at Moorhead Saturday night. A split in the two games would amount to a major achievement for a,team which already created a loud stir with its fast getaway. Concordia hasn't won a conference championship since 1931— and that was its only one. There was one stretch in the mid 1950s when it went three years without winning a conference game. ^ But it has arrived full blown 8-AUSTIN (Minn.) HERALD Monday, Jan. 12, 1959 Short Agrees Lakers May Move Franchise By JACK STEVENSON SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-President Robert Short of the Minneapolis Lakers sees a "good possibility" of his pro basketball team moving to San Francisco for next season's play. Still he isn't quite ready to rule out 'remaining in Minnesota and also considers Los Angeles, Houston and Seattle as sites tor a new home for his National Basketball Assn. club. San Francisco put up a mighty enticing argument Sunday night in the form of 13,652 fans paying n gross of $31,400 to see the Boston Celtics nip the Lakers 109-106 in an overtime NBA thriller. Boston's Bob Cousy dropped in two free throws with (wo seconds left in the regulation game to knot the count at 99-99 and in the overtime, Frank Ramsey and Lou Tsioropoulos drove in for field goals that meant the victory. Tom Heinsohn and Bill Sherman led the Celtics with 26 points apiece while Dick Carmaker paced the Lakers with 20. "There is a good possibility that we will move to San Francisco next year," Short asserted. "The only way of the NBA coming to the coast at this time, as I see it, would be to move existing franchises. With half of the teams in the league not doing as well as they might, I don't believe it will expand. I don't say that in five or six years it might not expand." Asked which teams he meant, Short listed the Lakers, Cincinnati, Detroit and Syracuse. The league meets Jan. 22 in Detroit to discuss possible expansion or movement of existing franchises. "Our franchise is not for sale," Short decla'red. "We will either stay where we are or move with it." The St. Louis' Bob Pettit did his share of newsmaking this weekend too, but it was by scoring 50 points Sunday as the Hawks topped Detroit 111-101). It was the highest individual total this season. Elsewhere, Detroit romped over Cincinnati 101-69 and Philadelphia defeated New York 103-97 Saturday night. Sunday, the Knicks turned back Philadelphia 111-95 and Syracuse whipped Cincinnati 127-110. Gopher Swim and Mat Teams Triumph MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minne] sola's swimming and wrestling teams gained victories in noncon- ference competition Saturday. The swimmers defeated Gustavus Adolphus 59-45 and the wrestling team downed Kansas State 19-8, winning six of eight events. this season, and Saturday night's 98-83 victory at St. John's was the proof. Duluth Branch, a half game behind with a 4-0 record, gets a chance tonight to pull abreast in its game with Gustavus Adolphus (1-3) at Duluth. In the only other action St. Mary's (1-4) is at Macalester (2-3). In other games last Saturday night Hamline dumped Gustavus 77-66, Duluth defeated Macalester 72-59, Augsburg whipped St. Mary's 68-60, St. Cloud edged Moorhead 62-61, Loras defeated St. Thomas 88-58, St. Olaf bowed to Cornell 78-77, Mankato StaU whipped Winona State 72-67 and Carleton topped Coe 86-75. Lee Hopfenspirger's 32 points guided Hamline's victory over Gustavus Adolphus. The Pipers trailed 62-58 with three minutes left but drove hard down the stretch 'to hand Gustavus its third defeat. Concordia got balanced scoring and 22-point leadership by Roger Adair in its victory over St. John's, whose Dick Breen" tossed in 27. Off to Fast Start Duluth Branch rolled up a 24-9 lead in the first nine minutes of their game with Macalester and stayed in control after that, although the Scots chopped it to 58-53 at one point. Jon Sampson and Bob Monson of Duluth. and Bill Baumgarten of Mac hit 15 points. Augsburg scored its first MIAC success after five defeats in defeating St. Mary's. Fred Halverson steered an Angle drive that scored nine straight points late in the game. Dave Ellens' two free throws in the last five seconds earned St. Cloud its triumph over Moorhead. Vern Baggenstoss scored 23 for | St. Cloud and Al Shogren had 12 ! for the Dragons. Grimm Pumps in 33 Ivan Grimm, leading small col- ifege scorer in the nation, pumped in 33 points as Carleton won over Coe.

W -Ira Hut- i chinson, 48, who last year marmg- ,ed Davenport in the Three-I League, has been named manager of Itlie Lincoln Chiefs for 1959. BLOOMINGTON, ind. (AP) Minnesota's basketball teaflj, nearly embarrassed by first place rank in the Big Ten, invades a Gopher graveyard of long standing when it meets Indiana here tonight. Minnesota has won only once at Bloomington in Oziie Cowles' 10 years as Gopher coach. This alone Is enough to make Branch Me- Cracken's Hoosiers the favorite. But Indiana hag a few things more tangible than homecourt spooks with which to scare the Gophers. These include a 6-11 rookie named Walt Bellamy who humbled all-conference Joe Ruk- lik Saturday night in the Hoosiers' 76-69 victory over title-favorite Northwestern. Also, there arc 6-7 Frank Radovich, who hai hit from the field at a 59 per cent clip in three games; Herbie Lee, who scored 18 against Northwestern, and Me- Cracken's new zone defense. The combination has given the Hoosiers a 2-1 record in conference play and labeled them a title contender. Minnesota is not yet that despite its 1-0 record which leads the league. The Gophers' only game was against Wisconsin, the unanimous choice for last place. An upset tonight, however, would make the Gophers overnight a force to deal with in the conference race. Cowles said he plans to assign 6-6 sophomore Jerry Butler to guard Bellamy and 6-7 Ron Johnson to handle Radovich. There's a chance that Cowlei might try some zoning himself, and it also seems likely that 6-5 Paul Lehman might be given a crack at one of the Hoosier toughiei. Lehman is the best defensive player on the Gopher team and big enough to be matched against most of the conference's tall men. Cowles plans to start Lehman, Ron and Whitey Johnson, Butler and Dick Erickson. Lehman, Butler and Erickson are sophomores. Bolt, Vossler Tie for Lead TIJUANA, Mex. (AP) — Golf pressure mounted today as United State Open Champion Tommy Bolt and unheralded Ernie Vossler of Midland, Tex., led the way into the final round of the $20,000 Tijuana Open. Tempestuous Tommy and the 30-year-old Texan were deadlocked after 54 holes with scores of 205. No less than 17 professionals were packed within a margin of four strokes of the leaders. One stroke behind were Jay Hebert of Sanford, Fla., with rounds of 69-67-70—206, and 23- year-old John McMullin of Alameda, Calif., with 66-69-71—206. Within striking distance for the $2,800 winner's prize were three pros at 207, Art Wall, Jr., Pocono Manor, Pa., Mike Souchak of Grossinger, N. Y., and Mike Fetchick, Yonkers, N. Y. Bolt made Sunday's tour in 3437—71. Vossler, whose only major victory was in the Kansas City Open last year, played it 35-36.

BY PATRICK MCNttTt LOS ANGELES (AP) - Billy Wade, who missed the most valuable player award by a fourth quarter pass interception, today took the blame for the West's 21-28 IOM in tht annual Pro Bowl football game. But West Coach Weeb Ewbank and his fellow players don't consider the lanky Los Angeles Ram quarterback the goat of Sunday's rough and tumble battle before 72,250 Memorial Coliseum fans. "We beat ourselves through mistakes," said Ewbank, coach of the world champion Baltimore Colts. "It was my fault," insisted Wade after the East turned the interception into a field goal and later scored a game-winning touch down. "I knew it was risky,to pass from my own 13, but I wanted to pick up some yardage and then stay on the ground," said dejected Billy. "I threw that pass right where I wanted it," Wade aaid in the dressing room. "But Walt Mich- Rangers Spurf as Bathgate Quits Bench By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS No doubt, Coach Phil Watson of the New York Rangers must be telling himself today, a little stretch on the bench can be a great help. It was last Wednesday night against Chicago that Watson, exasperated at the poor play of Andy Bathgate, benched his offensive ace for the last 15 minutes of the game. "I had to," said Watson later, "to show the youngsters on the team that no one was indispen- sible." Bathgate was back again in the Rangers' next game Saturday, and he scored the goal that enabled the Broadway Blues to tie the Detroit Red Wings, 3-3. Then Sunday night, he poked home the tying goal against the Chicago Black Hawks. But this time rookie Les Colwill notched another and the Rangers won, 4-3. Bathgate's goal sent him into the National Hockey League lead with 23. Dickie Moore of Montreal and Don McKenney of Boston each have 22. The Rangers had to overcome a 3-1 deficit to haul the victory out in the final stanza and move within three points of second-place Chicago. Other Sunday games ended in ties. Montreal deadlocked Boston 3-3 and Toronto and Detroit struggled to a 6-6 standoff. Saturday night, Montreal tripped Chicago, 1-0, breaking the Hawks' unbeaten string at eight games. Toronto beat Boston, 4-1, also Saturday. Archery Club Elects Slate Manly Hammer Saturday was elected president of the Cedar River Archery Club. Others named for 1959 officers were Lyle Baker, vice president;! Edna Hammer, secretary; Lor-j ranine Rinehart, treasurer and Charles Le Barron, director.

In the Open All Age, Double Mint, (BL), owned and handled by Hayes finished fourth. The trials were sponsored by the Tri-State Hunting Do« Assn. aels (of Cleveland) backed into it and stole it." Moments before, Wad» had marched the West 80 yards for a touchdown and a 21-16 lead in th* see-saw struggle among the tilt* of the National football League. "Forget it, Bill, Vou did everything I asked you to do," said Ewbank. "You moved tht ball on them." • After the intercption, th* East settled for a 25-yard field goal by Cleveland's Lou Groza. Dowes for TB Then, with less than thrtt minutes to go, Philadelphia's Norm Van Brocklin rallied the East for a 70-yard touchdown drive. Frank Gifford of the New York giants, who beat out Wad* for most valuable player, said, "I knew we had the plays. I wac just worried about getting possession of that ball toward the finish. But our defense took it away from them and that's all we needed." Ameche Plunges Over Lenny Moore of the Colts set up the first West touchdown by rafting 37 yards to the on*. Two plays later, Colt fullback Alan Amecfat plunged over. Latsr in the opening quarter, Gifford's 22-yard pass to dent Schnelker of the Giants put th* ball in position for Groza's first 25-yard field goal. Groza'* «ight points in the game was tops, incidentally, in individual scoring. Just before the first quarter ended, Gifford passed to Giant Alex Webster, who grabbed th« ball on the West 17 and raced over for the score. Lead Changes Again The lead changed again when Wade directed th* West 77 yard* in 12 plays. The payoff was • pass to Hugh McElhennjr of the San Francisco 49ers, who wiggled 20 yards to th* end zone. But the East, led by Ittl* Eddi« LeBaron of Washington, bounced back for a touchdown and a 16-14 nalftime lead. The East went 74 yards with LeBaron passing the last seven to Gern Nagler of th» Chicago Cardinals. It was the fourth victory in tht nine meetings lor th* Eaet.
