In the only other game, St. Louis came from 21 points behind to nip Baltimore 133J32 as rookie Lou Hudson scored 24 points in a last-quarter rally. The Philadelphia victory Cleveland overshadowed another milestone reached by Cincinnati's great Oscar Robertson, The Big 0, now in his seventh NBA season, scored 27 points for a career total of 15,852, putting him seventh ahead of former Royal Jack Twyman. He also replaced Twyman as Cincinnati's greatest scorer. The 76ers were leading 106-98 when Jones scored a basket. He hen missed a foul but put in a rebound. He scored eight points n four minutes as the 76ers outscored the Royals 15-7 to take a commanding 119-105 lead. » * * Hal Greer was high for Philadelphia with 32 points, and Jones notched 23. Wilt Charn- >erlain scored only 15 but got a career high of 17 assists. With Boston and Los Angeles tied 115-all, Havlicek connected on a jump shot and then clicked with a driving lay-up to give the Celtics a fourrpoint edge. Tom Sanders' free throw with 47 seconds left iced the verdict. AFTER A LARGE NUMBER OF FLORIDA BASS WERE released in Greers Ferry Lake, several sportsmen from other areas were irate that ftis same species and other erotics were not released in lakes in other locations. But there are reasons why stocking of exotic or non-native fish is carried out discriminately. First of all, and. perhaps most important of all, each release' is part of a scientific investigation to fill one or two needs. The lake has a biological need for the distribution of a certain species or biologists 'are trying to fill a fisheries gap not occupied by native fish. The Florida bass release in Greers Ferry was the end r&- suit of considerable biological data that had been gathered over a lengthy period of time. Not only did the lake offer the most suitable habitat, there was a biological need for the Florida bass. This species can serve as a predator fish that take advantage of the abundance of shad, and may eventually mean an increase in the size bass being caught. To tha fishermen this means a greater production ef cateh- able fiih. * * *. The stocking of Florida bass In this centrally located lake is strictly experimental and if it is successful in Greers Ferry, perhaps attention can be focused elsewhere for further spread of the fish. It must be pointed out that a hatchery can produce only a given amount of fish. Because of space limitation, despite being the world's largest warm-water hatchery system, tha three state hatcheries can't turn out fish in assembly Una fashion. Millions of fish are stocked annually by the Arkansas Commission's Fisheries Division. Many fishermen erroneously place emphasis on quantity, rather than take Into consideration the inter-relation of stocking for scientific purpose or biological need. WHIT?

A week ago Elliott was roundly criticized for standnig at the side of the track while his star miler, Dave Patrick, was making a bid for a four-minute mile and waving and shouting for Patrick to slow down. He finished in 4:00.5. Friday, Patrick followed what Elliott said was his exact Ian and ran a 3:59.3 in the New York Athletic Club meet, the first sub-four-minute mile of the indoor season and of Patrick's life. "I still think I was right," Elliott said of his tactics a week ago. "He's sound and he still has a long way to go." Almost lost in the wild applause of the 15,382 at Madison Square Garden for Patrick, was Jim Kemp's 55.8 clocking in the 500, just three-tenths of a second off the indoor mark and by far the fastest time of the season. 0 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - I can't believe it. Ron Clarke was like an idol to me," declared 120-pound Gerry Lindgren from Washington State after finally beating the Australian star in a two-mile race. "Every time I've met him, he's left me in the dust. I was real happy even to be close with two laps to go. I prefer a win over Clarke to a world record." I.inrigren's time of 8:32.6 in the Golden Gate Invitational indoor track meet Friday night was short of the world record of 8:28.8 run by Clarke on the same boards a year ago. Still the little American was 15 yards ahead at the finish as he sprinted past a jiring star. • NEW YORK (AP) —. Tile status of 11 foreign athletes caught in the AAU-NCAA cross-fire—eight of whom were scratched from two track meets Friday night—remained uncertain today after the apparent failure of mediator Theodore Kheel's latest peace edict. The refusal of both Amateur Athletic Union and the U.S. Track and Field Federation, an arm of the NCAA, to heed a directive issued Friday by Kheel's Sports Arbitration Board left the foreign stars ineligible, according to the AAU, for the New York AC meet in New York and the Golden Gate meet in San Francisco. do it in the first half.
