Rookie Don Nelson converted on a three-point play with only two seconds left for Chicago's victory over Cincinnati The Zephyrs led by as much as 18 points in the first half, but wilted before a closing drive by the Royals. Cincinnati's Wayne Embry hit on a lay- up with less than a minute to go, setting the stage for Nelson's winner. Temple Notches No. 3 Despite Eye Problems fey the Associated 6ad eyesight, good insight and & pair of beat up junior high school bifocals were the main topics Of discussion today as Temple's Owls focused their attention on the strange events of victory No. 3. Things went wrong for Temple at the start against Bucknell Wednesday night when Bob Harrington lost one of his contact lenses early in the first quarter. A search of the Palestra basketball court in Philadelphia fniled to locate the lost lens. Harrington was forced to the bench and the Owls trailed. But Harrington was thinking, and quickly dispatched his three brothers to their home. Midway of the second hnlf, the brothers returned with the heat up glasses Harrinnton liadn't worn since junior high school. .The 6-foot-2 junior went back into the game, got his eye on the basket and sank four straight baskets, putting temple ahead to stay 48-45 in a 61-53 triumph over the Bisons.

Cousy was the difference for the Celtics. He tossed in 13 points and A nutshell description of Chevrolet trucks could be "Trucks That Work". It's not exactly carthsluik- ing but it says a mouthful. It's \vhat Chevrolet trucks are best known for—their reliability. Ready to work, day after day, whenever you are. You can't build trucks that perform like this if you don't put quality into en.srine, chassis and body. Chevrolet does: double-wall construction, insulated cab, select-wood body floor, chain- supported tailgate, ladder-type frame, the careful attention to upholstery and finish. It's this kind of quality that makes any Chevrolet truck—from pickup to heavyweight tandem—worth more on the average at trade-in! 2 NEW 6-CYLINDER ENGINES Xeu- lli^'h Torque 2oO- cu.-in.
