(AP)-The National Basketball Association has added San Diego to its roster, raising to 12 its entries for the 1967-68 season. NBA Commisioner J. Wlter Kennedy announced Wednesday that San Diego was granted a franchise, joining Seattle as a new team for next season. Kennedy said the team is owned by San Diego Sports Enterprises, which operates the new San Diego International Sports Arena and owns the San Diego Gulls of the Western Hockey League. * * * Robert Breitbard, president of Sports Enterprises, will also head the new NBA club, which will play in the International Sports Arena. The corporation payed $1,750,000 for the new franchise, proved Tuesday in San Francisco, Kennedy said. The team will obtain its players in a draft from the present NBA rosters, Each of the 10 existing teams will give up three players, with San Diego and Seattle filling 15-man squads. When the Cincinnati Royals add one in the victory column, it's usually because of the Big 0. It was that way again Thursday night in the National Basketball Association, when the Royals eked out a ,106-102 triumph over the Bulls at Chicago as Robertson scored 36 points and contributed 21 assists. The Big 0, held to just one field goal in the first quarter, 48-49 halftime lead. Then after Chicago fought back from a 16- point deficit to trail by just two points at 100-98, Robertson's shooting and ball handling enabled the Royals to hold on. * * * Iti the only other game, the Lakers turned back San Fran- this season.

He successfully defended his title by stopping Cleveland Williams last Nov. 14 in the dome structure's first boxing match. 7/it Vltw from Her* ED HAYES H6W WOULD YOU LIKE T6 SEE THE "CITY OF Blytheville" tobling artund the track at Indianapolis, taking part in the world-famous 500, and maybe, just maybe, win- ""^That's the'dream of Wayne Woodward, NASCAR driver who now makes his horns in Blytheville. It's not a long-distance dream. He wauls it this year, May 30, 1&7. But how to raise 9,000 bucks? * * * Wayne's enjoyed t*o teasers at Indianapolis and wants the full course befOfe he gets too old-and perhaps too wise to risk his neck. •,,,.• In 1963 he qualified at 147.78 mph, the 39th fastest time but encountered trouble and didn't get to ride the race. In 1964 a couple weeks before the 500, he turned his stock sprinter over, broke his collarbone and Ronnie Duman of Detroit took over the racer. The Detroiter qualified at 149-plus but on the first turn was involved in a crackup that snuffed out the lives of Eddie Sachs and Dade McDonald. Duman was burned. You read about it, rm sure. You read a lot about the 500 because it's one of the biggest publicized events in the world. * * * Publicity is the key to Wayne's plan. Any car that makes the race gets its name and the name of the driver splattered from here to there in newsreels, television, newspapers. O.K., Harold, radio, too. Wayne wants to put Blytheville's name on this map. But he needs backing—financially—if not from the city dads themselves, from a group or mob of interested citizens who are willing to match their willingness and public spirit with shekels. Wayne's not looking for a bundle himself. In fact, he K\A he'd be wining to donate all his earnings to a city youth project or athletic endeavor. All he wants to do is drive the race. Reward enough. * * * It takes $1,000 to get in the qualifying field. Woodward would pay this himself. He knows where he can buy the car. He said he's been Offered a machine from the builder in Greenfield, Tenn., a car that's never been on a track, at about half price. The cost: $6,500. This seems a stiff sum for a car even with an engine— which it doesn't have. Wayne would build that himself, a 305 cubic inch Chewy V8. He said there's never been a Chewy in the 500. Until now it's been exclusively Fords and Offies. "But I think a Chevvy can do it," he said. * * * In addition to driving, Wayne is an ace builder. Right now he's completing two sprinters on order. If the Blytheville driver gets in the 500 he needs to act now. Entry deadline is April 15. Then there's the Pre-Indy at Phoenix, March 19, where the speed nuts unkink the kinks. Of course, the Arizona race is more than a kinky deal. It's not designed as an experimental event. They don't hide anything. "They let everything hang out," Wayne said. Why not? Top prize is $120,000. * * * Wayne has already interested some Blytheville people In his project. Among them he said are David Drew and Richard Gilmore. It wasn't hard to grab Gilmore. He's from Indiana and was hooked a long time ago. "It's a thrilling event," he said. "It gets you." It's his Idea to perhaps form a committee to round up the necessary finances. Interested? Then why not contact one of these men? Wayne runs the Shell station at Plaza Shopping Center. * * * If you're wondering if Wayne has the stamina to drive 500 miles without climbing out to stretch his legs, the answer Is yep. Last year he toured five 500s, including the big events at Daytona and Atlanta. Anyway, it sounds like a supercharged idea that some Blytheville people might want to get involved in. I've got five bucks to invest in Blytheville's good name. Anyone else? * * * FOUR-DOT DATA: Ex-major leaguer Frank Mancuso, who got his start with the old Blytheville Giants, represented the mayor of Houston at the Bluebonnet Bowl .... Bloomfield, a Missouri basketball power, lost its first home game Saturday night (52-50 to Advance) since December, 1964 .... Wounded Don Gaines was back working with the BBS Chickasaws yesterday afternoon. Limited action, though. His legs are rusty but his eye is sharp. Best shooter at the workout, seemed to be Jim Dixon, assistant coach. Basketball Shoafs Near Unbeaten Year FAYETTEV1LLE - Prospect of an unbeaten season awaits Arkansas' basketball freshmen Saturday night at Barton Coliseum in Little Rock. Closing out the first half of a round-robin campaign, the Shoats are to meet Beebe Junior College before embarking on a second tour of six opponents —none of which thus far has seriously threatened to dump the high-scoring youngsters. Currently averaging 87.8 points every outing, Lynwood Cathey's chargers now have (lie opportunity to hand their coach an unblemished season record, a rarity among basketball teams anywhere. Under Dubby Waller, the Shoats approached unbeaten status only once, compiling an 11-1 mark in 1958-59. While team won-lost records are in danger, individual scoring marks already have toppled—and the end is not in sight. Robert Mc- Kenzie, a 6'4 shooter from White Hall, captured single high-game honors with 39 points against Crowed (Mo.) JC, a traditionally strong basketball school. McKen- ize sat out 10 minutes in that one and the Shoats won in a walk-away, 94-74. * * * If McKenize can manage the tempo he will own the fresh season scoring record before totaling: 131 points in five games gives him a 26.2 average, well ahead of the pace set by Jerry Carlton and Tommy Boyer in 1958-59 and 1959-60. Carlton had 242 in 12 games and a year later Boyer topped that record with 244. Should Shon! opponents employ strategy to stop McKon- zie the second time around, Cathey has the answer—an entire squad of basketball talent with scoring reputations to match. Bobby Vint, a good bet to become Arkansas' first outstanding "big man," trails McKen- zio with a 14.4 average. It doesn't profit to foul Vint —he's the dead-eye among Hie frosh at the foul line. In high school, he had a string of 43 free throws before a miss. Mack McAlister and Danny Keeter round out the four Shoats with average in double figures. The two perform backcoiirt duties for Cathey — McAlister relies on a long set shot and Keeter depends on a left-handed, reverse-spin jumper from about anywhere. Mack once pumped in 30 points for Jonesboro while in high school and Keeter had 41 for Mountain Home. * * + The fifth Shoat regular is Rick Tanneberger, a solid rebounder who has yet to find a consistent scoring touch. He was high for the Shoats (21) in a 90-80 win over Oklahoma Military Academy. When the Shoats journey to Little Rock, they will return to the scene of their • narrowest victory of the sea--.. -. son. In mid-December, Me- -••?'

Perry Gets $10,000 Raise SAN FRANCISCO (A) -, Right-hander Gaylord Perry, a 21-8 performer with the San Francisco Giants in 1966 with his best season, has signed a 1967 contract at an estimated $40,000. Perry, the first pitcher to,win 20 games last season, earned a raise of about $10,000. The Giants boosted his pay last season when he posted his 20th victory Aug. 20. Only three major league hurlers won more than Gaylord, lanky 28-year-old North Carolinian who winters at \Villiamton. They were Sandy Koufax with 27, and the Giants' Juan Marichal and the Minne each.
