NHL Summary National Hockey League By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Tuesday's Results Oakland 3, Minnesota 2 Only game scheduled Today's Games Oakland at New York St. Louis at Toronto Chicago at Pittsburgh Montreal at Los Angeles Only games scheduled Wildcats Are Ready For Huskies DURHAM -- Physically the N e w Hampshire W i l d c a t s should be in the best shape of the season, as they invade the Kent Street field of Northeastern University on Saturday for a replay of last year's 21-12 thriller. It was the only defeat for the Huskies, who are presently coming off a four game winning streak, including a win over top ranked Springfield l a s t week. Coach Jim Root expects to have Bill Phillips, last year's leading ground gainer, in top form for the first time this year. He played part of the game against Vermont and has apparently recovered from early season injuries. He also expects Carl DiFilippi, hero of the Connecticut game, back in the lineup; along with Jim Ramsey, sophomore linebacker, and Bob Robichaud, his best looking offensive end. Both of t h e s e sophomore have missed the past two games. Northeastern is also getting back several of its injured stars this week ,and the two rivals should be close to full strength on Saturday. The last game at Northeastern field, in 1966, saw the Huskies pull it out 15-14. The series overall stands 9-5 in New Hampshire's favor. Coach Joe ZabU- ski is 5-6 against the Wildcats. New Hampshire won last year's thriller on long punt returns by Billy Estey, and Coach Root has already decided that an open attack is the only Wildcat hope against a rugged Northeastern defense. With the exception of Phillips, his backs average only 5'7 against a burly Husky backfield which includes Bill Curran 230, Bruce Cornell 215, Jim Fennessy 185, and quarterback Bob Connors 180.

Giant-killer Yugoslavia edged out mighty Russia 63-62, and the U.S. team, by-passed by most of best collegians and almost dumped by little Puerto Rico, easily turned back a strong Brazilian team 7563 in the semifinals Tuesday night. The Russia-Yugoslavia game was packed with drama, the U.S. swimmers scored another 1-2-3 sweep and a hint of commercialism crept into these 19th Games--but the day belonged to host Mexico and a skinny 17- year-old whose nickname translates "Lukewarm." His real name is Felipe Mu noz and his highly partisan countrymen figuratively raisee the roof on the Olympic poo when hs edged Russian work record holder Vladimir Kosin sky and won the men's 200-me ter breaststroke in 2:28.7. The Russian was second, a tialf-meter back and 16-year-olc Brian Job. Cortland, Ohio, third It was Mexico's first golc medal of the Games and onlj the third in history for the coun try.

The United States, which beat Yugoslavia 73-58 in an earlier tournament game, handled Brazil with case and is heavily favored to bring home another gold. The Americans have not lost a game since the sport was introduced Into the Olympics in 1932. They have won 74 in a row. Tfcs Americans, playing wilh- oul the services of such collegiate standouts as Lew Alcindor, Eivin Hayes and Don May, followed -J-j Jo White's lead to a ·32-26 halftone edge and coasted in from there.

"I don't believe there will be any problem getting the boys when they are playing for the gold medal/' Iba said. The U.S. swimmers, though dominating the games, won only one of three gold medals Tuesday--Donna DeVerona, Golden Girl of the 1964 Games, had explanation for that--and received two other jolts. First, Catie Ball, a 17-year-old from Jacksonville, Fla., who holds the world records in the 100 and 200 meter breaststroke, withdrew from the 200 heats, suffering from influenza, and went home. Her training had been hampered by an attack mononucleosis earlier in the year. And second, Lesley Bush, Indiana D. coed, the defending champion in women's platform diving, flubbed her first dive and failed to qualify for Thursday's finals. Czech .Milena Duckova leads after four dives with 55.25 points, followed by Russian Nadezhda Lovanov, 55.24, and Ann Peterson, Bellevue, . Wash., 54.06. Barbara Talmage, Walnut Creek, Calif., is sixth at 49.70. * * # Debbie Meyer, Sacramento, Calif., who already had one gold medal, led the American sweep of the women's 200-meter freestyle in 2:10.5, followed by Jane Barkman, Wayne, Pa., 2:11, and Jan Henne, Oakland, Calif., 2:11.2 It was the fifth American sweep ;n swimming. But Roland Mattes, East German world record holder in the men's 100-meter backstroke, won his specialty, giving the United States only one gold for the day He was timed in 58.7, easily winning over Charles Hickcox, Phoenix. Ariz., second, and Ronald Mills, Fort Worth, Tex., third. Miss DeVerona had an explanation: 'I don't know how long it take, but other countries are adopting our methods, copying our programs and dipping into the minds of our best coaches," she said. "They arc not stealing our secrets--we are giving them awavv' The United States, though winning only six medals, still maintained a big lead over giant Russia. The United Stales now has a total of 72 medals. gold, and Russia has 42, including 14 gold. The Russians got their only- gold of the day from Evegemy Petrove in skest shooting. He won in a shoot-off with Romano Garagnani of Italy and Konrad Wirnhier of AVest Germany. All had 198 of 200 at the end regular competition, but the Russian was 25 of 25 in the shool-olf with Garagnani second and Wirnhier third. Gyozo Kulcsar of Hungary scored an upset in the day's only other gold medal event, beating Russian defending champion Grigory Kriss in the men's individual epce. Glanhui- gi Saccro of Italy was third. The United Stales has eight boxers still in competition--5n- :l»ding four in the semifinals led by heavyweight George foreman, Pleasanton, Caiii 1 ., Russia has seven. A hint of commercialism crept into the Games when it was learned that the U.S. Olym- MC CcwimiUcc was investigating reports that some athletes aad received money from alb- elic goods manufacturers, in violation of the Olympic code. Officials and athletes would not comment. First reports said ;3x_ Americans vrerc under sus- )icion, but two later were exon- :raled. Two alhletes from other rountries also were reported under investigation. No names were divulged. KWSPAPERl EWSPAPERl
