But Redahl slammed home left Seattle at 13-3. Two of Seattle's defeats have been dealt by the Beavers. Mel Counts, along with Goodrich and Hazzard probably the West's top All-America candidates, hit 31 points against the Chiefs Friday night to bring victory for the Beavers.

And her answer was, 'Tell 'em you owe everything to your wife.' "... Bouton could have freshened it up a bit by inverting the phrase to "Everything I owe is due to my wife." . . . though Bill Russell, the great center of the Boston Celtics, listened to Bouton's troubles and offered some of his own. Typical night for Oscar Robertson By United Press International It was just a typical night for Oscar Robertson. The Cincinnati star led all scorers with 35 points and all rebounders with 17 as the Royals broke Baltimore's six game winning streak, 118-106, Friday night at Dayton, Ohio. Performances like that are becoming common with Robertson, the National Basketball Association's most complete player. Despite the win. the Royals remained three and one half games behind Boston's Eastern Division leaders. The Celtics defeated Philadelphia, 114-97, at Boston. Baltimore, which had won eight of its 10 previous games, played without rookie backcourt- man Rod Thorn and it made a difference. Thorn was out with a sprained knee. Cincinnati won the game in the second with a 72-point barrage. The Royals had led by just five at halftime. Wayne Embry had 20 points for the Royals and Tom Hawkins added 17. Terry Dischinger and Si Green both had 17 to lead the Bullets. At Boston, Bill Russell scored 20 points and had 21 rebounds to help the Celtics win their 18th home game in 20 contests. Philadelphia led at the end of the first period, 27-23, but Russell scored 12 points and had 10 rebounds during the second second quarter to send Boston ahead for good, 53-48. Tom Heinsohn was Boston's top scorer with 24 points and John Havlicek had 19. Hal Greer topped Philadelphia with 25. little women aren't getting shut out.

When Fred Williamson, the all-league defensive back of the Oakland Raiders, was in San Diego for the AFL All-Star game, he volunteered as a subject for a night club hypnotist, "you're going to sleep and when you wake up, I'll ask you who the best receiver in football is and you'll say, 'Lance AI- worth.' "... Alworth plays for the San Diego Chargers. Everything went fine until the hypnotist popped the question. Williamson strugged pre- ceptibly with the answer and finally stuttered, "Ah-ah-ah-Art P-powell." . . . Powell, also a fine receiver, is his teammate at Oakland. . . .

When anybody twits owner Ralph Wilson of the Buffalo Bills about how much money he lost in pro football, he re torts, "I prefer to think I have an investment of $500,000 in the Bills. The Detroit Lions were sold for more than $6 million We're more than half that, and with all the big television money I hear about, I'll add a half million more worth eight times that much.

KENNEDY STAMP WASHINGTON (UPI) — A 5-cent memorial postage stamp bearing the likeness of the late John F. Kennedy will be issued May 29, which would have been Kennedy's 47th birthday. The date was chosen by Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy. The former First Lady also will select a design for the stamp from a number submitted, according to Postmaster General John A. Gronouski. professional sports leaders testified Friday in favor of pro posed legislation to exempt sports from anti-trust statutes but a halt was urged to "unreasonable television blackouts" of games. Rep. Frank A. Stubblefield. D-Ky., told the Senate Antitrust and Monopoly subcommittee that it was imperative to have "adequate protections against unreasonable television blackouts." He said only pro football currently was engaged in the "unreasonable" blackouts but warned that it could spread to other sports in the future. San Diego to Acapulco race starts Sunday noon SAN DIEGO, Calif. (UPI) —,and The 1.430-mile seventh biennial San Diego to Acapulco handicap yacht race starts at noon Sunday with Sirius II favored to finish first and Carousel to win the race. Sirius II, an 83-foot sloop owned by Howard Ahmanson of the Newport Harbor Yacht Club, was declared scratch boat for the race, meaning it will have no handicap. Carousel, an Owens cutter owned by Ash Brown of the San Diego Yacht Club, has been given a two-day, five-hour handicap, and off past performance, is favored to beat the other boats on corrected time. Carousel won the race in 1958 and was second in 1960.

The Canucks jumped to a 3-0 lead in the first period and widened it to 5-0 before San Francisco broke the shutout on Al Nicholson's goal late in the second period. Vancouver added three more goals for good measure in the final stanza. San Francisco goalie Bob Perreault was probably a little shell-shocked after the game. He was bombarded by 46 shots during the contest. Buddy Boone led the Vancouver attack with a pair of goals. Les Hunt and Phil Maloney each scored one goal and had two assists.

(UPI) — Bosh Pritchard, who helped spark the Philadelphia Eagles to two National Football League championships, is running the scales instead of the ends today. The one-time VMI halfback, who played for the Eagles from 1946 through 1951 and led them to championships in 1948 and 1949, breaks into song at the slightest provocation. It isn't a football lament. Bosh is playing his first stock company lead with the romantic role in "Finian's Rainbow" at Cherry Hill, N.J., next month. "It's a chance to get the ham out," he says with the built-in drawl which almost cost him the lead. It seems that when he went to try out for the part, which calls for a Dixie drawl, the casting director stopped him after he had read a few lines. "Don't you think," he was asked pointedly, "that you're putting on too much?" Bosh looked pained. "But," he protested, "this is the way I always talk." "Oh," said the casting director limply. "All right, go ahead." Pritchard. who was a 165- pound halfback in the championship Eagle backfield which included quarterback Tommy McDonald, halfback Steve Van Buren and fullback Joe Muha, has played minor roles in vari­ ous stock productions but this is his first lead and he whips 'out the script whenever he can j throw a block on anybody. "This isn't a career thing he explains. "I just do it for kicks." His real job is vice president in charge of sales for Te!-Ra Productions of Philadelphia, which produces National Football League television highlights, pregame color shows before the World Series and shows which are put on before the live pro games. The slow-talking Pritchard, who still contends that "little" men can be top running backs even in the rugged pro football ranks, was bitten by the show business bug when he was waiting for his release from; the Navy in 1945. "I was playing for the San Diego Bombers, while waiting my discharge," he recalls, "and I sang at halftime while in full football uniform." A fellow sitting in the stands sought out Pritchard and offered him a five-day 15-minute live radio show. Bosh was billed as the "Crooning Halfback" and held the spot about six months before he had to quit to be able to report to the Eagles. Even while he was playing, Pritchard in 1949 and 1950 ran a disc jockey show in Philadelphia and then had a nightly sports show. He also has worked on the "color" end of the Eagle television broadcasts the past three years. Studebaker leads in performance and safety...
