Coach Whack Hyder of Georgia Tech's hapless Engineers can give you the answer but probably not the explanation. It's those "no- count'' games the Techmen have sprinkled among their Southeastern Conference schedule. Of the eight j;ames they've played with SEC foes, the Engineers have won the four that didn't count in the standings. They've dropped all four that did count. No. 4 on the no-count list came Tuesday night when Tech, triggered again by ace Roger Kaiser, spilled defending champion Auburn 48-33 in overtime at Auburn, Ala. Previously Tech had beaten another SEC club, Georgia, thre times—without getting credit in the league standings. Two were non-SEC games Dec. 1 and Jan. 11, and the other was a clash between tine two in the Birmingham Classic during Christmas Week. There'll be regular league clashes between Tech and Auburn and Tech and Georgia later on, but that's little consolation at the moment for coach Hyder and a band o£ Engineers who last year challenged for the SEC title right up to the final game. Ironically, Georgia is well up in the race—holding third place with a 3-1 record, and Auburn is just a step behind at 2-2. Kaiser, held to 13 points in regulation play, scored eight of Georgia Tech's 12 overtime points in Tuesday night's seventh in 16 tries victory, the for the En- jineers this season. Porter Gil- aert, with 14 points, led Auburn, which lost its third game in 12 starts. Massachusetts, converting 29 of 34 free throws, upset Canisius 51-57 in overtime; West Texas State blew a 20-point lead before spilling North Texas State 84-81; RCA VICTOR JANUARY TELEVISION SPECIAL! and Morehead (Ky) whipped East Tennessee 106-86 in other games on the slim schedule. With midterm examinations continuing, activity among the major schools is meager again tonight. Major pairings include LSU at New Orleans Loyola, Mercer at Georgia, Canisius vs. Providence, and Kentucky Wesleyan at Louisville. Hawks Stop 'Wilt Stilt' And Nip Warriors 114-112 PHI To Take Bumps Out Of Sports Events NEW YORK CAP)-Instant coffee, stretch socks and fumble- proof footballs—what limits, science? Now they've come up with pills for black eyes. And for bruises, swellings, cuts, sprains and bur- si tis. It's simple. You get a bad knock on the head or a hard jolt on the thigh—a fracture or a sprain. Don't be alarmed. Put a little white pill under your tongue, let it dissolve, and you're back in action in no time. This relatively new medical discovery has attracted the attention of coaches and trainers of athletic teams, who find that the loss of talent through injuries can be reduced sharply. The drug (known as veridase) was tried by boxers in the 1960 Olympics and also has been tested by members of the Boston Red Sox baseball team, the New York Giants and St. Louis Cardinals football teams and the Cincinnati Royals basketball team. Its use "is expected to spread now that it is the subject of articles in medical journals and athletic magazines. 'This is by no means a all." says Dr. Russell Cahoon of New York, who helped in the development of the drug, "but evidence is now in that shows that the drug affords prompt and dramatic improvement in athletes suffering bruises, cuts and other inmnes.' The pill contains an enzyme known as streptokinase. In technical language, an area of inflammation is produced at the site of the injury and walled off from the uninjured tissues by a limiting membrane. The pills were used by 150 of the 294 boxers in the Olympic Games at Rome^-sometimes before and sometimes alter the fights. Dr. J. L. Blonstein of the Amateur International Boxing Association said injuries on the whole were remarkably low. Cuts did not require suturing, the doctor said, and black eyes, which ordinarily stay black a BEST FOOT BACKWARD—There's an extra added attraction to this film production of University of San Franciaco b»»- ketballer Bob GaiUard, but the foot doesn't belong to him. 12-4A Roundup Stings, Jackets Drop Last Tilts couple of weeks, in three days. cleared 1 up By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Stop Wilt Chamberlain, and there's a good chance that you can beat the Philadelphia Warriors.

Hawks' llth straight at home while the loss was the Warriors' sixth In a row on their current road trip. Elgin Baylor clicked for points — his highest output Dr. T. A. Lamphier, team physician of the Boston Red Sox, reported that he treated some 20 members of the team with the drug last year. District 12-4A got through the! last night of the first round of the- double round robin basketball race without an upset, although the margin which Baytown took in beating Smiley certainly was unexpected. Brazosport stood off Texas City, 60-55, in what is becoming a typical, cliff - hanging finish for Flash Walker's Exporters, while Pasadena came from behind to beat Galena Park, 50-41, and Baytown eased out of the cellar over Smiley, 69-36. Monday night, South Houston got things underway a day early by handing Ball High its fourth loss, 60-50. Term exams, underway at Galveston this week, were responsible for the early game. Texas City, who had knocked off Pasadena in the first round's biggest upset just a week earlier, tried to pull the same stunt in the Ships' back yard Tuesday and had piled up a 7-point lead in the fourth quarter. But Bob Walker hit a 3-point play with 3:32 left in the game to put the Ships ahead, and Braz- osport went on to make that a 5-point margin.

In other games the Boston Celtics whipped the New York Knicks 125-112 and the Detroit Pistons edged the Cincinnati Royals 106-104. Chamberlain's production was his lowest in regular season play for a full game. Guarded mainly by Clyde Lovellette and Woody Sauldsberry, Chamberlain collected four of his 16 points in the final moments as the Hawks avoided fouling him. Bob Pettit's 37 points were high for the Hawks. Baylor, who set the all-time NBA scoring record of 71 points earlier this season against Now York, collected 14 points in the final quarter to break open a close game. Bob Cousy connected for 19 of his 33 points in the third period to spark the Celts to their success over the Knicks.

Each league club; with ft* exception of Dallas which managed only one tie and. no victories in its first year, had to make available a list of eight players by noon today. Some were ready Monday night The Vikings can take three from each dub. a total of 36 players for $360,000.' , Bert Rose, general manager of the Vikings, bad no illusions about what to expect "We know we have « rocky road ahead," he said. "Just as Dallas has had so far. But we're prepared for it I think this is as equitable a solution as could be worked out" Didn't he want the right to pick from II players, «* Dallas had last year? 'We wanted all we could get," he said. "We didn't arrive it any specific figure. We do have CM advantage over Dallas in the decision of ttte league to cut Ms player limit from 38 to 36 men. That should make more available to us in waivers." Norm Van Brocklin.

Pete Rozdte, league commissioner, said the Vikings had until noon Thursday to complete their 36-man selection. The Vikings will notify the various clubs who, in turn, will contact the players. Rozelle said the Vikings already had paid $150,000 torptayers and had agreed to pay $200,000 la each of the next two yean. The total of $550,000 for 36 men breaks down to about $15,300 a man. The money goes to the clubs. The eastern conference (New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Cleveland, St. Louis and Pittsburgh) has the right to deckle whether to take Dallas or Minnesota into its conference.
