A total of 18 goals was scored in the two games that were played—and one of the four teams in action was held scoreless. The Seattle Totems crushed the Vancouver Canucks 10-2 and the Lcs Angeles Blades blanked the San Francisco Seals 6-0. Del Topoll, Bob Barlow and Guyle Fielder shared scoring honors in the Seattle victory. Topoll, who registered a goal in each period, and Barlow each had the hat trick. And Fielder assisted on five goals. The Totems scored three goals in the first period, three more in the second period and added four for good measure in the final stanza. The victory moved Seattle into a third-place tie with San Francisco in the WHL standings. Goalie Jim McLeod was the hero at Los Angeles. He blocked 34 San Francisco shots in recording his second shutout of the season against the Seals. Harold White tallied the Blades' first and final goals. In between Leo LaBine, Bob Solinger. Norm Johnson and Jim Baird blinked the light for Los Angeles. The victory tightened the Blades' hold on second place in the WHL and left them 13 points behind the pace-setting Denver Invaders. All teams are idle tonight. The league schedule resumes Tuesday night with Seattle at San Francisco and Portland at Vancouver.

Redlands Blvd. 793-2141 Pennel, Long, Hayes in top performances LOS ANGELES (UPI)—Track and field enthusiasts were convinced today that they had seen three of the United States potential gold medal winners in the Tokyo Olympic games over the weekend. Olympic caliber performances were turned in at the fifth annual Los Angeles Invitational Indoor Meet Saturday night by pole vaulter John Pennel, shot putter Dallas Long and sprinter Bob Hayes. All three are holders of world marks in their specialties and gave an early-season demonstration that they were pointing for the Tokyo games in October. Blades blank Seals 6-0 LOS ANGELES (UPI) — The Los Angeles Blades appeared headed for another win streak today after the authority they displayed on the ice Sunday night in whitewashing the San Francisco Seals 6-0. The second-place Blades' next encounter will be against the same club Thursday night in San Francisco. Thus far this season Los Angeles has blanked the Bay Area team in three of 10 games. The two-team record is now 8-2 in favor of Los Angeles. Coach Alf Pike's squad had a four-game skein going until Sat urday night when Seattle turned them back 5-2. Wilkinson's aide succeeds him at Oklahoma NORMAN, Okla. (UPI)—Comer Jones, the man Bud Wilkinson wanted to succeed him, embarked today on his new career as head football coach at Oklahoma. Jones was named Sunday night by the school's board of regents, acting on a recommendation of the Oklahoma Athletic Council. Wilkinson resigned as coach on Jan. 11 and stepped out as athletic director Saturday. No successor was named to the athletic director post, but Jones, who already is associate athletic director, is expected to get the job. The athletic council will decide that matter later. Jones, the 49-year-old line coach from Cleveland who built the mighty interior lines for Wilkinson during the past 17 years, immediately launched a personal recruiting program. He admitted the Sooners were a little bit behind" in recruiting because of the eight-day delay in naming a successor to Wilkinson. But he predicted Oklahoma would field a good football team next fall. The Soon­ ers were 8-2 in Wilkinson's final campaign and finished second to Nebraska in the Big Eight Lema wins as wind blows pro scores PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (UPI)—Champagne Tony Lema bought his favorite bubbly for all hands—and gratefully drank some himself — after squeezing out a last-round 76 that still gave him the Bing Crosby National Pro-Amateur golf title by three strokes. Gale winds, rain and famed Pebble Beach — a 6,747-yard golfers' nightmare—proved too tough for 60 of the world's finest tournament pros Sunday. Not a single one of them was able to equal Pebble's par of 72 and one shaken pro. Bob Harrison, blew to an even 100. Even the colorful Lema, who got his nickname because of his congenial habit of buying champagne for newsmen and friends whenever he wins a tournament, had his tips and downs on his last round. Going into the final 18, he was tied with Canada's AI Balding with eight-under-par totals of 208. But when it was over, there was Lema all by himself at 284 — only four under — while Balding went for 88 strokes and finished far down the list with 296. He won only $95. Lema pocketed $5,800 for his 72 hole medal victory and collected another $3,000 for finishing second in the pro-amateur division with Col. John Durkin. a Catholic priest with the Air Force in Japan. Most of the rest of the field would rather not talk about Pebble Beach. In addition to the woes suffered by Balding and Harrison, Bob Rosburg, one of the world's best putters, took six putts on one hole. On the other hand, the wind blew so hard that Al Geiberger had a three- inch putt blow into the hole for him. Gay Brewer fired a 73— equalling the lowest score at Pebble Beach to tie with the veteran Bo Winingcr with four round totals of 287. Each won $3,100. Then came Geiberger and Tommy Aaron at even par 288, worth $2,150 apiece, followed by four pros at 289 and $1,650 each in prize money—George Knudson, Gardner Dickinson, Bruce Devlin of Australia and Dave Mar. Professional Mike Fetchick of Glen. N.Y., and amateur Charlie Seavcr of Fresno, Calif., won the pro-amateur division with 258. Fetchick collected $J,000. Play to tie AUGSBURG, Germany (UPI) —Bill Reichart of Rochester, Minn., scored a last second goal Sunday that enabled the United States Olympic ice hockey team to tie West German champion Ev Fuessen, 6-6, in an exhibition match. Campbell and Sherman team wins golf event Teaming to win the Jack and Jill golf tournament at the Redlands Country Club yesterday were Mr. and Mrs. Robert Campbell and Mr. and Mrs. Ken Sherman with a net 134. Second in the best ball affair were Mr. and Mrs. Al Wincher and Col. and Mrs. Frank Genetti. A tie for third at 136 resulted between the teams of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Hurt and Mr. and Mrs. Percy Dornfeld and Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Watkins and Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Lee.

Dan Gurney, who holds 13 of the 36 stock car records at the Riverside Speedway, won his second consecutive 500 - milcr here Sunday after nabbing the lead in the 55th lap. The 28-year-old Costa Mesa driver is richer by S13.265 for his effort and should be a completely happy man. But, after the race Gurney learned that Joe Weatherly, a long-time friend, had been fatally injured in a spectacular crash in the 76th lap of the 187-lap race. "I was only two cars behind Joe when he hit the wall," he said. "I knew it was bad, but I had no idea that be had been killed." I In winning the race. Gurney [set a new Riverside record for 500 miles by averaging 91.154 m.p.h. The average shattered i the mark of 84.965 m.p.h. which I he set last year. Marvin Panch of Daytona Beach. Fla.. finished more than a lap behind the winner to take second place. Glen (Fireball) Roberts, also Daytona Beach, finished third. Bill Amick of Portland, Ore., was fourth.

Pair of women bowlers drew most attention DALLAS (UPI)—A pair of women bowlers drew most of the attention in the SIOO.OOO All- Star bowling tournament Sun day—one for what she did accomplish and one for what she did not. An unknown from Milwaukee Wis.. Jeanette Bopp, rolled the highest series ever bowled in the tourney by a woman, 760 That put her in front after 12 games of qualifying with 2,481 But Marion Ladewig, an eight-time winner of the affair, did not do so well. She failed to make the semi' final cut off for the first time in the history of the tournament. She was not the only ex- champion to miss the women's semifinals. Sylvia Wene of Philadelphia, a two-time champion, missed the cut-off, as did Phyl lis N'otaro of Brant, N.Y., another former titleholder. In the men's division. Bill Lillard of Dallas clung to a seven-pin lead going into today's play. Lillard rolled his lowest four- game block of the tournament Sunday, an 841 series. But his 3.159 total for 16 games still led little known Mike Chiuchiolo of Patchogue, N.Y. Chiuchiolo rolled a 966 series Sunday, the highest of the day, to leap into second spot. Bowler of Year roll-off finals next Sunday The first half of the Empire | Bowl "Bowler of the Year" championship roll-off took place yesterday and the final half will be completed next Sunday. Allen Otterbeck, bowling manager, stated today. Twenty-four of Redlands' top bowlers, 12 women and 12 men are participating. The women will roll a total of eight games and the men 12. All are handicap with one-half of the games being bowled yesterday and the final set next Sunday. Winners, runnr-ups and third place finalists all will receive trophies, Otterbeck said. The public is invited to see these matches with no charge for admission. Top golfers SOUTH NORWALK. Conn. (UPI) — Deane Beman and Anne Quast Welts were honored by Golf Digest magazine today as the top man and woman amateur golfers for 1963. Merrill Carlsmith was named senior golfer of the year. Larsen, Kauder win doubles PALM SPRINGS (UPI)—Ac tor Keith Larsen, Malibu, and Ed Kauder, Sherman Oaks, captured the men's doubles final of the Blue Ribbon Tennis Tournament Sunday with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over the Los Angeles pair of Forrest Stewart and Al Martini. Two weeks off for Bruins for exams By United Press International At last they've found an outfit that can stop onrushing UCLA—the faculty. Top ranked in the UPI basketball ratings and undefeated so far, the Bruins take a chance on losing their momentum because of an enforced two weeks time out for examinations. When they make it back to the floor on Jan. 31, they will be confronted by U. C. Santa Barbara, an ambitious newcomer in the West Coast Athletic Conference. None of UCSB league games count in the WCAC's standings this year and it's a good thing for the established members. The Gauchos hold a 3-0 mark against other league members. Seventh-ranked Oregon State, its feathers a little ruffled after a Friday upset at the hands of Oregon, hosts Stanford this weekend. The Indians were knocked off twice last Friday and Saturday by the non-stop Bruins. While Stanford and Washington State keep active in outside tilts this weekend, the rest of the Big Six is idle because of examinations. The Cougars meet Oregon twice at Eugene on the same nights that Stanford is at Corvallis. Following the weekend set at Corvallis, Stanford keeps busy by moving on to Utah for a Jan. 27 game then hibernates until Feb. 7 when it invades Washington State for the first of a two game Big Six series. The earliest any other Big Six team plays is Jan. 28 when Washington meets Oregon in a non-conference tiit. A lull for exams enters its second week in the West Coast Athletic Conference where only Loyola is active with a Thursday night outside tilt against Occidental. A rundown on Saturday's limited action: Big Six Walt Hazzard of UCLA scored 31 points and led the Bruins to their cool, 80-61 win over Stanford. Gail Goodrich backed him with 22 points. The Bruins, off to a faster start than when they beat Stanford on Friday, led by 20 at halftime. California grabbed second place in the Big Six by making it two straight over stone-cold Southern California. 65-47. The Trojans didn't mesh a field goal until the game was more than 10 minutes old. An 18-point attack by Dan Wolthers paced the Golden Bears who led by 22 before the second string took over. Washington split its weekend series with Washington State by downing the Cougars 63-61 on Dick Lee's lay-in with two seconds in the game. The Huskies, who lost by two points Friday, had to storm back from a 40-47 halftime deficit this time. Independents Seventh-ranked Oregon State bounced back from a Friday upset at the hands of Oregon and defeated the Ducks. 66-53 behind a 38 - point outburst by Mel Counts. Mighty Mel captured II I rebounds and enjoyed a hot second half as he accounted for 23 of his points. Elliott Gleason and Steve Jones had 14 apiece for the losers. The Portland Pilots defeated Nevada, 76-66, with Tom Nichols' 34-point blast showing the way. He hit for 22 of them during the first half. Nap Montgomery bucketed 18 for the Wolf Pack. WC AC Pepperdine. a weak member of the West Coast Athletic Conference, lived up to its billing by getting smothered by Los Angeles State for the second night in a row. The Diablos went over the centuury mark against the Waves. 103-88, following Friday's 104-89 lacing. Kenny Rebaud scored 19 points for Los Angeles State, the defending California Collegiate Athletic Association titlists. Roland Betts vainly meshed 29 for the Waves. Cardinal sin to 'blow the whistle WINS SKI TOURNEY BEAR MOUNTAIN, N.Y. (UPI) — Pete Langlois of the U.S. Army recorded leaps of 150 and 156 feet Sunday to win the 40th Swedish ski jumping tournament with a point total of 208.8. By OSCAR FRALEY 1 UPI Sports Writer MIAMI (UPI) — Ever sincei the dark ages of boxing it has been regarded as a cardinal sin, almost as bad as taking a dive without telling your manager, to "blow the whistle" on anybody in the business. One reason was self preservation. Because back in the days when Lucky Luciano and others of his ilk "owned" fighters as marks of social distinction a man could wind up dead in an alley for speaking out of turn. Yet even in more moderate times the singular reaction to the recently released partial memoirs—or confessions — of Jack (Doc) Kearns proves that the rule still holds. A solid case in point is a portly gentleman named AI Weill, who will be remembered as the manager of Rocky Marciano. Weill, who until right now has been a longtime friend of mine, professed Vassar indignation that Kearns should say he put plaster of paris on Jack Dempsey's gloves when they defeated Jess Willard for the heavyweight championship in 1919. Weill's quoted remarks are vastly intriguing. Proudly he acknowledges the fact that when Dempsey first went tc .New York in 1916 Weill was as- [ciated with the Manassa Mauler and also with promoter- manager John (The Barber/ Reisler. Purses were scant. Weill admits, but adds with vast pride in his association that Dempsey "always managed to move around- in a classy way." Dempsey, in his own book, asserted that John the Barber {overmatched him, short changed him, got his ribs stove .in, paid him so little he slept | in the park, made Dempsey want to "kill him" and sent the i disgusted and busted Dempsey back West "riding the rods" to where he finally met Kearns. Even in those days, that hardly could be called a real "classy way" to go. But, as it happens among the old timers in the busted beak industry, "you don't blow no whistles on nobody." Weill refused to do it himself when we discussed his own days as matchmaker at Madison Square Garden during an era in which hoodlums and mobsters often were in total evidence. Told that he would have to flash a light in dark comers and look under the rug, Weill shrugged away his much- coveted biography with the remark "I can't do that." Considering more recent revelations cf gangland control, it can hardly come as a surprise that in the early days of Kearns chicanery was the order of the day. I spent months with the old Doc out of his last year of life, including the day before he died last summer at 80. And he was a man of rare recollection. He still harbored the grudge of their break up against Dempsey. And yet, while he told with boyish glee of escapades which would have shamed a brigand, he absolved Dempsey of any knowledge of that plaster of paris incident. Dempsey, of course, denied that it happened. Kearns said it did, reiterated it on his deathbed. Willard substantiated it with the remark that "every time he hit me I could feel another bone breaking." Weill, and others who are pontificat- [ing, weren't even there. The Kearns story must be accepted as a bit of boxing Americana, most of it going back so far that it cannot be said to .have any connection with box- ling today. The storm broke because he blew a few whistles. Among the old guys you just [don't do that. Not even, it might be added, among some of the younger ones. Double Lea wins San Diego handicap AGUA CALIENTE, Mexico (UPI)—Double Lea, an invader from Santa Anita assigned 126 pounds impost, scored a two- length victory Sunday in the $5,000-added San Diego Handicap at Caliente. Double Lea, who bad forced the early pace in a record-shattering six-furlong performance by Cyrano at Santa Anita recently, had to run hard to shake off Bobby's Legacy, who finished second, and Yattagirl, who came in third. The winner, covering the six furlongs in the time of 1:10 2-5, paid S3.00, $2.40 and $2.40 as the 1-2 favorite. On Saturday, Estaban Medina hit the riding jackpot with five winners, including a victory aboard Wanapanka in the featured Whirlaway Purse. Trainer W. A. Cain picked all six winners in the 5-10 handicap contest for a ticket worth $50,442.80.
