Notre Dame Wins Opener Iowa Hands SMU Second Defeat By UNITED PRESS _ Notre Dame's basketball Irish lived up to their advance billing Tuesday night with an 82-63 .opening-game basketball triumph" over St. Ambrose of Iowa. Tom Hawkins, a sensation as a sophomore last year, pumped in 28 points to pace the Irish who wore in command all the way. Hawkins scored 18 points in the first half and 10 before retiring in the second. He also hauled down 15 rebounds. Notre Dame ranked ninth nationwide in the United Press preseason coaches' poll.

At Iowa City, Iowa, however, SMU's _Mustangs, who were rated fourth in the country last season when they compiled a 22-4 record,suffered a second loss in 24 hours when they were beaten, 65-60, in overtime by Iowa. The pre-season dope was that the loss of tie six- foot-eight Krebs would mark the end of Southern Methodist's three- year reign in the Southwest Conference — and the dope appears to be standing up.

Veteran .center Jerry Berkshire was the top gunner for the Royals with 16 points but the work of Leonard fray at guard took the eye of Coach Brown and most Royal Center fans. The youngster popped in 14 points and played a fine floor game. Fuiton's attack was led by Danny Hauser, who collared 18 points, short. The Stars led 12-11, 28-22 and 42-38 at the quarter poles but Francesville rallied to lead 48-<16 with three minutes to go. Then the Stars shot ahead to stay as Russ Shideler hit twice.

The surprising New Castle unit, after turning back Knightstown, Greenfield and Hartford City, invades Richmond to play a revamped Hed Devil club that nipped Liberty, 41-38 and Burris of Muncie, 53-51 in a double overtime struggle. * * * Central of Muncie, bemoaning the lack of size and experience help, apparently has located some new basketball players. The Bearcats take victories over Columbia City, Shelbyville and Fort Wayne North into their NCC debut at Logansport.

Earlier they had rolled up a 91 points against Rochester and 65 against Winamac. * * * Anderson and Marion hook up in the final NCC battle in the Wigwam.

Alex Karras, Iowa's 233-pound All-America tackle, finished a distant second with 693 -points. Walt Kowalczyk, All-America Halfback from Michigan State, was third with 630.

President' George Trautman angrily blamed tome of baseball's biggest names —including "the Wi-igleys, Yaw- keys, Buschs, Toppings and the Webbs"—for the game's current troubles. His face red with ire and his voice showing obvious emotion, Trautman reeled off the names of major league owners and admitted they were "extremely successful" In everything they did. "Now I ask those same gentlemen how they can permit their (baseball) structure to topple?" Trautman said. Trautman included Phil Wrigley of the Cubs, Tom Yawkey of the j •Red Sox, Gussie Busch of the Cardinals, • John Galbreath of the I Pirates and Bob Carpenter of the | Phillies in his scorching indictment, delivered at a minor league writers' meeting Tuesdaj night. "And, oh yes," he said as an afterthought, "i don't want to forget the Dan Toppings and the Del Webbs." Beferring to a recently published dispatch which chargeu baseball with • lack of .leadership, Traut- num laid bluntly; "Some of the people in baseball are very selfish. It grieves me no end that the finger is pointed at us as lacking leadership. This game is my life and . want to preserve it. How arc: you going to get leadership when you can get no followers?" Trautman then revealed that a seven-man committee has been formed to determine how far the majors plan to go in their program of television expansion. He was speaking of the majors' plan to have a TV game-of-the-week on Sundays as well as Saturdays. "This committee is being appointed to find a common ground of understanding," he added, "specifically, to ask if this pattern of expanding networks is to be continued." The committee -will be composed of league presidents Leslie O'Connor (Pacific Coast League); Frank Shaughncssy (International League); Hal. Totten (Three-I League); Eddie Mulligan (California League) and Sam Smith (Alabama-Florida League). Shaughnessy already has announced the International Leaguels intention o:i bringing suit against the majors if they go through with their plan to have a Sunday TV game-ol'-the-week. NFL Players Want to Talk Not Sue Owners CLEVELAND, Ohio (UP)— The National Football League Players Association indicated today it wants to talk to club owners, ho sue them. Association attorney Creighton Miller said Tuesday the suit threatened for filing would not be' filed "at this time," pending the outcome of talks sometime this months with WFL Commissioner Bert Bell- Benching of the lawsuit was announced by Miller after he got in touch with player representatives for instructions, in light of the meeting of club owners Sunday in Philadelphia. The club owners affirmed recognition of the association which Bell made during an appearance before a Congressional subcommittee. The owners also acceded to all but one of the players' demands — a share of the championship game receipts to be used by the association for whatever purpose they decide upon. Joe Brown Favored In Title Fight Wednesday CHICAGO (UP) — Lightveight champion Joe Brown was a 3-1 favorite Tuesday to defeat Joey Lopes Wednesday and retain the 135-pound crown in his third title defense. Brown, a 31-year-old ring veteran who has lost only 14 limes in 91 battles, has not been beaten jr. his last 13 fights and boasted an 11- bout winning streak prior to a 10- round draw with Lopes last Aug. 24. The deadlock, in an overweight scrap, earned Lopes his title chance Wednesday. Lop=s, 27, has lost 13 times in 57 bouts. He has 41 victories; 17 of them by knockout, while Brown has 66 wins, 28 by knockout. Brown has knocked out 6 of his last 13 opponents. RILEY VS. SAINTS The Saints and Riley basketball teams will clash tonight in a junior high school doubleheader at the Riley gymnasium. The seventh grade tilt is scheduled at t o'clock with the eighth grade set for 8 o'clock. Coach Fred Oyler's Washington Tp. Hatchets had. to stage a fourth quarter rally to beat out the Lucerne Lions in a Cass county bas- ketbail feature at the Washington gym Tuesday night 56 to 48. The game was a thriller all. the way as the Hatchets led 16-13 at the quarter and it was tied 26- all at halftime. Lucerne was on lop 37-36 at the end of the third quarter. It was close for the next four minutes and then Ihe Hatchets pulled in front to stay. Fine work on the' part of Hatchet guards Dave Vance, who hit for 12 points, and veteran Harold Howell, who collected 10, turned the tide for Oyler's team. Lucerne put up a good battle as Jim Robinson scored 13 and Dale Bridge got 10 to lead the way. Lucerne was hurt in the final quarter when four players fouled out. The Hatchets lost Howell and'Leffert by the same route in the final stanza. Washington also won the B team contests in a close one 29-27. Lucerne FG FT PF TP Robinson 535 13 Crane 0000 B.
