PAGE ilX THE BEDFORD DAILY TntF MAIL. BFDFOno, INDIANA THURSDAY, FEB. 3, 1966 Basketball Scores Florida Pro Paces Field Lakers Edge Giicy Royals At Foul Line By United Press International Elgin Baylor climaxed a brilliant second-half performance by making two free throws with 14 seconds remaining to give the Los Angeles Lakers a 119-118 victory over the Cincinnati Royals Wednesday night in a National Basketball Association game. Cincinnati called time out with 13 second left and then inbounded the ball to Oscar Robertson, the games high scorer with 44 points. Robertson, however, missed a jump shot with seven seconds left and Jerry West of the Lakers took the rebound.

Los Angeles then ran out the clock. Baylor scored 29 points, including 23 in the second half. West added 23 and Rudy Larusso 20 for Los Angeles, while Jerry Lucas had 26 for Cincinnati and led both teams in rebounding. The victory extended Los Angeles Western Division lead to 54 games over second-place San Francisco, which was idle Wednesday night. In other NBA action, St.

Louis defeated Philadelphia 96-89 and Detroit topped Boston 99-93. Weils while Bessehnk, who won some money in the Los Angeles Open and the Bing Crosby but failed to make the cut a week ago in the Lucky International when his putting went sour, carded a 67 on the same course. The trio thus took the play away from such touring stars as Arnold Palmer, the hottest player this year, who had a 71; defending champion Billy Casper who led a group of seven at 69; PGA champion Dave Marr, who had an opening round 68, and Ken Venturi, the Lucky winner Monday, with a 72., Jerry Pittman, Harold Kneece, and Rocky Thompson were at 68 along with Marr, while the 69ers included Bert Yancey, Ernie Vossler, Jacky Cupit, George Knudson, Gardner Dickinson, and A1 Greiber. ing goods with Ed Rozey, Chicago Bear trainer.

But close on his heels as the big field teed off in the second round of the five-day 90-hole event were two other veterans who have been almost as unsuccessful with their putters as McGowan, Joe Taylor of Charleston, W. and A1 Bessehnk of Grossinger, N.Y. McGowan, who won $28,771 last year but has made only $487 50 this year, wielded the first rounds hottest putter as he made seven birdies against a single bogey en route to an Esdorado Course record tying 66, six under par.

Taylor, the head pro at the Berry Hills Country Club in Charleston, who plays only on the winter tour, a 1 most matched McGowan, carding a five-under-par 67 at Indian ger can make is six or seven games to a ball club. If you happened to catch Durocher on one of those network night-time shows the other night, then you heard him say essentially te same thing. Discourse On Mets Only he said it about the Mets instead of the Cubs. Do you think sooner or later the Mets will get out of last place. he was asked.

Well, sooner or later, Leo fenced. Mostly later. Everyone knows its not up to the manager. Hes gotta have the talent. I said at the beginning it would take the Mets a long time to get out of last place.

How long? Theyll probably be last for tlie next two years anyway, before they get very good. How about Sandy Koufax? Hes so good, he should be barred, replied Durocher. Hes the best pitcher Ive ever seen in my life. Any time he goes out there, hes 95.5 per cent sure to win. Why.

even he cant understand it any time he loses. Leo talked about some other things, too. Like the time the Cubs were murdering his Dodgers and he brought in Hal Gregg to pitch to Bill Nicholson, and how Nicholson tripled with the bases loaded. And like the time he and umpire Jocko Conlan were involved in their famous kicking match, and how he got the worst of it because Conlan was wearing shin guards under his pants. Leo was still going like 60 when time ran out.

He promised to finish the story he was telling some other time.

Box Phone BR 5-5711 GROUriD BEEF Reg. 2 for 47c Loaves KRAFT'S By MILTON RICHMAN (UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) Dont give Leo Durocher any of that Brooklyn jazz about waiting until next year. He cant even wait until next month. Leos sudden enthusiasm is easy enough to understand when you consider hes on the verge of resuming his managed-ial career after a 10-year lapse and that prospect to him is roughly the equivalent of a presidential pardon. Durochers tremendous eagerness to get going is such that he sounds like a man who wont settle for anything less than a berth in next Octobers World Series.

It would be perfect if he only remembers to take his Chicago Cubs along. Never what you would call a conservative individual by nature, Leo permitted himself to get carried away a little on a recent six-city tour with some of his players. Followed Their Leader The Cubs who accompanied their leader on the caravan were Billy Williams, Ernie Banks, Ron Santo, Dick Ellsworth, Glenn Beckert, Ted Abernathy and Geodge Altman. It didnt take Leo long to shift into high gear once he started talking to his various audiences. Rule out Sandy Koufax, und you tell me where there is a left hander better than Ellsworth? he inquired loudly.

Ellsworth, sitting nearby and hearing the remark, nudged the fellow next to him and said, wow, I wish the season started tomorrow! Williams is one of the five top players in baseball, continued Durocher. I wouldnt trade him for three Frankie Robinsons Santo is the best third baseman in the league Beckert is going to be another Eddie Stanky or Billy Herman And Abernathy is just the No. 1 reliever around Leo had all these guys wide-eyed and here they hadnt even played game one under him yet. Some time later, Banks ran into ex-Dodger pitcher Joe Black and they fell to talking about Durocher and how much he might mean to the Cubs. Hes a good manager, all right, said Black, but hes no magician.

He cant go out there and do the pitching and hitting for you. Sure Leo is smart, but the most difference any mana due last Saturday extended the Gophers basketball string over Purdue to five straight games. This is currently the longest victory stretch of any Big Ten opponent over Purdue. Coach George King of Purdue indicated the Boilermakers would be more disciplined in performance for the game against Minnesota. The Boilers made only 24 of 81 field goal attempts a single game shooting low for the season.

Purdue forward Dave Schell-hase has a 15 game scoring average of 31.8. In conference action Schellhase has been awarded an average 15 free throws per game, a sign of concentrated defenses to his play. Free throw shooting is of statistical significance for Purdue. Guard Henry Ebershoff is shooting .906 from the line and guard Denny Brady .810 per cent. Schellhase is .729 for 188 attempted free throws.

Purdue as a team is shooting .728. Top three scorers, Schell-hase, Ebershoff and Brady, have a combined scoring average of 59.3 points 70 per cent of the, total Purdue scoring norm.

Investigation Of KuKlux Klan Pressed WASH3NGTON (UPI) House Committee on American Activities today pressed on with its investigation of the Ku Klux Klan, encouraged by an overwhelming endorsement from the full House. The endorsement came Wednesday in the form of contempt of Congress citations voted against seven national Klan leaders. The officials who were cited for refusing to produce subpoenaed records, could go to jail for a year and be hit with $1,000 The citations were similar to warrants. They will not be presented to a grand jury by the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.

If the Klansmen are indicted they will be tried in federal court here. Rep. Charles L. Weltner, a committee member and one of the early advocates of a Klan investigation, said he interpreted the vote as an overwhelming endorsement by members of the House of the committees work to date. Weltner said he was also proud that virtually all Southern members voted to cite the Klansmen.

It it clear that the KKK does not speak for the south or even the white South, he told a reporter.
