(UPI Radiotele- photo) Winter Olympics Christl Haas leads girls from Austria in ski race By HENRY W. THORNBERRY UPI Sports Writer 1NNSBURCK, Austria (UPI) —Tall, reckless Christl Haas led Austrian girls in a 1-2-3 sweep of the women's downhill ski race in the Winter Olympics today, blocking American Jean Saubert's bid for a third medal, while Russia won the men's 1,500 meter speedskating to cap the greatest medal spree in Olympic history. Victory in the 1,500 meters by handsome Estonian university student Ants Antson, gave the Soviet Union its ninth gold medal and 22nd medal of all kinds in the games—both all- time Olympic records. Russia had set the previous record of 21 medals in the 1950 Winter Olympics at Squaw Valley, Calif. On the basis of unofficial times, the 5-foot 10-inch Miss Haas, who skis with more power than most men downhill racers, took the women's downhill in a very fast 1:55.39. Teammates Edith Zimmermann and Traudl Hecher was next with 1:56.42 and 1:56.66. Miss Saubert placed only 26th of 43 finishers with a time of 2:03.79. She previously had won a bronze medal in the special the finish line considerably faster than her rivals. Miss Zimermann, the 'beauty queen" of the Austrian team, said the home-nation girls were out to sweep to silence press ciriticism of their showing. "We showed them today we still know how to ski in our own slopes," she said. Surprisingly, Miss Saubert was the slowest U.S. entrant, although she insisted, "I didn't make any mistake." Starr Walton of Sacramento, Calif, was 14th in 2:01.45, Joan Hannah of Franconia, N. H. 15th in 2:01.88, and Margo Walters of Salt Lake City, Utah 21st in 2:02.68. Eyes Gold Medal Victor Emery of Montreal put Canada within sight of its first gold medal of these games when he boosted his lead in the four-man bobsled competition at the end of the third of four heals. U.S. hopes of gaining any kind of a medal in bobsled virtually disappeared when one [sled dropped out with a broken steering gear and the other fell back from fifth to sixth place. Antson gained his victory over Cornelius Verkerk of Hol- slalom and a silver medal inji an d, sec ond in 2:10.6, and Wil- tlie giant slalom.

The fourth heat, originally scheduled for today, has been rescheduled for Friday because the bobrun is so thin as a result of recent mild weather that officials feared to stage two runs on it in the same day. Steering Wheel Broke The U. S. sled that bowed out was the No. 2 American crew piloted by Larry McKillip of Saranac Lake, N. Y. and had been in seventh place after two heats. The steering wheel broke while the U. S. team was making a practice run before today's heats. Emery's led in the four-man event, which stood at .69 of a second after two heats, grew to .90 at the end of the third as his nearest rival, Eugenio (Red Top) Monti of Italy, faltered. Monti, who has won eight world championships but now faces frustration once again in his quest for his first Olympic title, could clock only 1:04.02 on his third run for a total of 3:11.52 and dropped back to third place, 1.07 seconds behind Emery. Erwin Thaler of Austira piloted his sled into second place behind Emery. Thaler's sled covered the third heat in 1:03.74 for a 3:11.35 total. Chances Fade The only remaining U. S. sled in the competition, steered by Bill Hickey of Keene, N.Y. saw its chances for a medal virtually fade out of sight as it dropped from fifth to sixth place. Another U. S. medal hope was riding today with Jean Seaubert of Ogden, Utah in the women's downhill ski race. The 21-ycar-old Oregon Slate honor student was only one of several favorities after final (practice sessions on the 2,450 !meters (slightly more than l'.-i j miles) course which has a vertical drop of 625 meters (683.5 yards) as it turns and twists down the side of Hoadl Mountain.

State St. 793-2935 | Rams acquire Ken Iman for line backer LOS ANGELES (UPI) - The Los Angeles Rams might have solved one of their biggest problems Wednesday when they acquired 225-pound center-linebacker Ken Iman from the Green Bay Packers. Iman, 24 who played behind all-league center Jim Ringo last year, was expected to get a crack at the offensive center job with the Rams, one of the team's weaker spots last sea son.

The Buckaroos scored three goals in the last 10Vi minutes Wednesday night after the Seals had closed the gap to 4-3 early in the final stanza. Orval Tessier scored twice for Portland and Len Haley tallied a couple of Seal goals. Haley's scores brought the Seals back from a 2-0 deficit to knot the count at 2-all after the first period. Portland scored twice in thej second period and after San Francisco's Charlie Burns scored early in the final stanza. Portland broke through for three tallies. Goalie Bob Pereault made only 17 saves for the Seals, while Dave Kelly blocked 30 for Portland. Several stars missed the contest. Arnie Schmautz of Portland and Gery Brisson of San Francisco were suspended for one game as a result of a stick fight in a game here earlier this leek. Left-winger Arlo Goodwin of Portland is out for the season and was to undergo knee surgery today. He was injured Tuesday night against Vancouver in a collision behind the net. It's the sixth year in a row the plucky veteran has had to undergo an operation during the season. This year he played 39 games. In three previous years with the Bucks, he has lasted 4, 29 and 20 games. Wednesday night's Portland win moved the Bucks to within one point of both San Francisco and Seattle and three points of second-place Los Angeles. San Francisco is at Los Angeles tonight and Seattle is at league-leading Denver. USF Dons take on San Jose in big game By United Press International There is a big battle in the West Coast Athletic Conference tonight when the defending champion USF Dons host San Jose State, the nation's top ranked defensive quintet. USF is 3-0 in WCAC competi tion and has won seven straight since being upset in the West Coast Athletic tounament last December. San Jose is 2-0 and had peeled off six wins in a row until Santa Barbara upset the Spartans on Monday. The Spartans were sluggish in that one after returning from their semester layoff after a three week absence from the courts. The Dons rale the home court edge, but will be hampered by the probable loss of forward Eddie Thomas, who has a gashed elbow. USF has moved soph sensa tion Joe Ellis to the back court. At 6 foot 6, that makes him one of the tallest guards around. Other contests tonight will find Pacific at Santa Barbara and St. Martin's at Portland U. in a tune-up for the Pilots' big weekend battles against Oregon State. In games Wednesday night, Seattle had its hands full with Puget Sound before winning out 87-80. Cal State edged California at Riverside, 56-50, as Roy Sipp paced the winners with 17 points.

The Lakers Wednesday night snapped a six • game losing streak by beating the Detroit Pistons ill - 85, moved back in to second place in the division standings and got the news that stalwart Jerry West might return to the lineup in Friday's game against the same Pistons Elgin Baylor, playing his finest game of the season, led the Lakers to their first win since West fractured his thumb Jan. 26.

Rams negotiating new Coliseum contract LOS ANGELES (UPI) — The Los Angeles Rams were placed in the unusual position today of wanting to cut down on the capacity of their home stadium— the Memorial Coliseum — possibly with a view of picking up more revenue over a period of years from local television or even pay TV. Ram president Dan Reeves, who gained control of the professional football club for $7.1 million last year, announced Wednesday he has proposed a 10-year contract for use of the stadium to the Coliseum Commission — the mult i-faceted group that controls the Coliseum. The Reeves plan includes installing theater-type armchair seats that would limit the capacity to approximately 65,500 spectators — ostensibly to give the fans more comfortable seats and a closer view of the field The commission took the proposal under submission and may report some action on it at its next meeting Feb. 24. Coliseum manager William Nicholas said meanwhile he would ask for bids on installing new seats. Even if the Coliseum Commission approves it, the contract must still be approved by various city, state and coun ty bodies. Under the Reeves plan, the Coliseum Commission would install about 23,000 theater type seats in time for the 1964 National Football League season. The total of this type seat would be increased to about 65.500 over a period of two years. Reeves pointed out that during the past 10 years only an average 1.2 games per season drew 65,000 paid admission This includes a record 102,368 paid attendance the Rams and San Francisco drew on Nov. 10, 1957. Reeves still said he would be content with an average of 65,000 in the 10 years to come. Some colleges—the University of Southern California and UCLA—aiso use the Coliseum, but Reeves said they would not be hurt by his plan. The Ram president suggested to the commission that the playing field be moved 15 yards closer to the west end of the stadium. This would give fans in the western end zone a better view. At the east end, he suggested that several thousand mobile theater seats be installed. These could te rolled back at other events and the older seats could be used. Pitching trio return signed Angel contracts LOS ANGELES (UPI) — Three pitchers, headed by Dean Chance, have returned their signed contracts to the Los An geles Angels, it was announced today. The other pitchers were re­ liefer Julio Navarro and rookie Leo Marentette. Chance, 22 had a 13-18 record last year, but compiled a 3.19 earned run average that was the best on the Angel club and 13th in the American League. Navarro, 28 posted a 4-5 record in working 57 games. He was credited with eight saves. Marentette, 22, was purchased conditionally by the Angels from the Detroit organization | He played with Knoxville and i Syracuse last year. Halpern sees new era beginning for boxing NEW YORK (UPI)—Nathan L. Halpern predicted today that the "smashing financial success" already indicated for the Sonny Liston-Cassius Clay fight on Feb. 25 marks the dawn of a new era in big-time boxing and perhaps in other sports. Halpern, president of Theatre Network Television, Inc., (TNT), said the momentum of current ticket sales at closed- circuit TV locations throughout the United States and Canada not only "projected" a $7 million fight for Feb. 25, "but also promised fights of from $20 million to S30 million status within the next few years." The TNT prexy, who pioneered closed-circuit television for boxing with the Ezzard Charles-Jersey Joe Walcott heavyweight title bout at Chicago in 1949 and who closed- cast 16 other big fights, explained: "It's no longer a question of the tremendous interest in boxing. The big problem is to have enough new telephone lines and loops installed by the American Telephone and Telegraph Co., and to have enough projection equipment manufactured so that we can serve auditoriums, large theatres and other locations in the hundreds of cities and community centers we can not accommodate now."

He expressed his approval of proposals to eliminate the "saved at the bell" and have the referee continue counting at the end of the round. By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer JflALEAH, Fla. (UPI) - The Martins and the Coys were at it again Wednesday in the persons of Manuel Ycaza and Bill Hartack. In case you never heard, the Martins and the Coys were fabled mountain feudists. Ycaza and Hartack do their feuding on the flat but at higher speed, being mounted on the back of galloping horses. And, at the moment Panamanian Manuel is one up on his fellow jockey from the Pennsylvania coal fields. That's because they ran a rodeo in the $25,000 added Bahamas Stake at Hialean Race Course Wednesday. Thirteen hayburners came charging into the stretch faster than the light brigade and when it was all over there were hints that national riding champion Walter Blum had been the victim in a swift bit of double talk. Ycaza finished first on Roman Brother. Blum was three and one-half lengths back on Mr. Brick. Wayne Chambers was third on Journalist and Hartack was fourth on Bupers. These names may be significant someday or other because they are three year olds about) which you'll be reading in the] Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes. All Three Involved Anyhow, somebody crowded in on somebody as they battled their way into the stretch whips flailing and wild yells straining 13 sets of tonsils. Ycaza, Blum and Hartack all were involved in a triple claim of foul and the quiet Blum wound up having his number taken down. From their remarks in the tack room Ycaza appeared to (have gotten away with grand theft. "My horse ran straight all the way," said Manuel. "Roman Brother crossed in front of Hartack's horse," said Blum. "It isn't the first time and didn't surprise me any," said Hartack. , His reference was to the 1958 Flamingo. In that one, Ycaza riding his first race in Florida, .crossed in front of Hartack on | Tim Tam to win with Jewel's Reward. But Ycaza's number was taken down and he blew the $88,000 winner's purse as Hartack was declared the winner because of interference, j Causes No Distress The fact that these two jockeys are at it again causes no distress, however, in racing circles. As Sammy Renick. a former jockey, once put it: "If there was a contest for 'most unpopular jockey' I don't know which one of them would win it." Ycaza has been set down more often than a lap dog with fleas. He rides to win, period. "They give me nothing," he explains. "They put me over the fence if they can. Who knows what will happen if I do not protect myself. One official told him that the judges were on hand to protect him. "Thank you," said the man who sometimes is called "Kamikaze," adding "but if you don't mind, Manny protects himself, first." Hartack, of course will never be regarded around the tracks as the number one personality kid. He is blunt and graceless and, like Ycaza, stirs no deep affection in the tack room. After the rough riding episode in the Bahamas, one jockey summed up the feeling toward them when he said: Here in the jockey room their conduct is perfect." The tone said he hoped that sometime in the near future they'd manage to put themselves over the fence simultaneously. OFFICIAL TIME OUT i
