WILT AND IN GEAR: Intimidate Celtics By RALPH BERNSTEIN Associated Press Sports Writer PHILADELPHIA (AP) Someone in the Philadelphia 76ers' dressing room asked if K.C. Jones had ''Hal Greeri- tus." Greer, the 76ers' sharp-shooting jump shot artist, laughed heartily, then cautioned, ''don't get him mad. This series isn't over yet." The by-play took place after Die 7(jers frounced the Celtics 127-113 to take a 1-0 lead in the bcsl-of-7 final playoff scries in the National Baskcltball Association's Eastern Division. * * * The learns play game No. 2 at Boston on Sunday. San Francisco, leading 1-0, plays St Louis at home tonight in the second game of the Western Finals ] For several years now, some sources have charged that Greer chokes up when he faces Boston and its dynamic, little guard, K.C. Jones. They'll have to get a new book on the matchup. Greer has scored 76 points against the Celtics the last two times he has faced them. He collected 39 Friday night to lead an awesome Philadelphia assault »n the famed Boston defense. While Greer was pumping in 20 foot jumpers, Wilt Chamberlain demoralized the Celtics inside. The 7-foot-l Most Valuable Player of the NBA scored 24 points, but more important, he grabbed 32 rebounds, handed out 12 assists and blocked a dozen Boston shots. The 76ers romped to a 66-49 lead, increased it to 25 points at one stage of the second half and coasted home. RACES AT OSCEOLA SUNDAY New Cars Waiting to Go 'Memphis Bids* No Players Signed Yet By JACK STEVENSON Associated Press Sports Writer OAKLAND, Calif.

Mikan said, "Some of the clubs have already signed coaches but want to make the announcements in their home cities." The commissioner said rules will be set later but he personally favors three-points for field oals made from outside 25 feet. Asked if any of the clubs had signed players, the commissioner replied, "No one has reported a signing to me." Each club must post a $50,000 performance bond today and another of a like amount on May 1. Mark Einstein of the New York franchise said the league office "is being funded in excess of $2 million to guarantee com- mittments made by each club to field a team and abide by all committments. Trovs Victors By ED HAYES, Sports Editor * - Slock car racing fans had (heir favorite cars last year but they might have a difficult lime trying to recognize the vehicles this season. , "Just about everybody has built new cars,' reports Uon Morris, track manager at Osceoia Speedway. "They haven't had 'em out on the track yet. It should be something to see how they're going to handle 'em all." Owners and drivers are due to get their chance Sunday afternoon in Osceoia for the opening session of the new season. Morris said he's looking for supermodified cars from Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee, Mississippi and widely scattered portions of Arkansas. * + + "And I'm sure there'll be plenty of C cars," he added. "Everybody I've talked to has their cars ready." Expected to draw the most interest in the C division is the car reportedly driven by veteran Buford Ward. It's a Racing Gnu BMtttff full-bodied vehicle, built by Billy Sellers and Jackie Dyer in Gosnell. And the track? "It's real smooth," Morris said. "If it doesn't rain tomorrow, it looks like the track will be in real good shape. "We've buried tires around the infield to eliminate the problem of those drivers who cut too far inside." * * * Sunday afternoon time trials are at 12:45, races at 2:30. Admissions are $1.50 for adults, 50 cents for children 6-12. The Osceoia races are to shift to Friday nights May 5. Flagman is Jack Holmes. Races at Blytheville Speedway are to commence Sunday night, May 7,. Meanwhile, the Osceoia track manager is glancing skyward, praying for a dry track and expecting a full house.

Gypsy Welter Beats Champ 'Oddball' Can Fight By MURRAY ROSE Associated Press Sports Wriicr NEW YORK (AP) - Gypsy Joe Harris is a clown. And he can fight too, as he showed in besting welterweight champion Curtis Cokes in a non-title 10- rounder Friday night.

For Cokes it was the old story of loo little and too late, an'l the unanimous decision went to The slender, 5-foot-9 champion earned $9,000 for his Madison Square Garden debut and suffered his first defeat in two years. His record is 45-9-3. He also got a strenuous workout for his title defense against France's Francois Pavilla in Dallas May 19.

Reckon I'll have to go along with the 23-year-old deck sweeper Rick Hall as I shop around trying to pick an all events winner in the men's bowling tournament at Shamrock. Picking Rick is like putting your money on the ole time Yankees. Rick, in league action, has a thumping 198 average. They say you can throw the form sheet away at tournament time but I'll take my chances. In my book Rick is also the sentimental favorite. H he wins, he'll probably be the last to know about it because he'i due for induction into the Air Force next Thursday, and th« tournament is a two weekend job. * * * In the doubles event, Rick has chosen another 23-year-old as his partner, Dale Bratton. ' Dale, who coaches at Burdette and plans to return next semester, merely hauls a 190 average around. These two possibly could do better fay choosing other partners, since their handicap amounts to almost zero, but that's the way Rick wanted it in his farewell effort and Dale was willing to go along. * * * DWIGHT WILLIAMS, BHS BASKETBALL COACH, WAS willing to sit down Thursday and discuss the new rule that prohibits the dunk shot and the other regulations but he really hasn't had time to study the changes. Early this week his son Mark, 9, was clipped in the eye with a B-B gun pellet that ricocheted off a wall, and Dwight was shaken up. Mark, too, naturally. R appears permanent damage has been done to the eye. * * * FOUR-DOT DATA: Grady Smith has resigned as basketball coach at Puxico. It's reported that Gene Wilfong takes over .... Joe Pepitone of the New York Yankees says he prefers center field over first base. He says flashy first basemen are taken for granted but "the fans really notice" that good catch or that good throw by centerfielders ....
