The Celtics' 6-foot-10 defensive specialist, by pulling down 128 rebounds in five games last week, not only strengthened his lead, but placed himself in a position to enjoy his best season in this department. Russell, with 1,464 rebounds and a 24.8 game average through games of last Sunday, can go over the 1,900 mark at his present rate and better his season's high of 1,891 established in the 1961-'62 season. Cincinnati's Jerry Lucas en joyed a fine week in shooting accuracy, increasing his field goal percentage from .524 to .531. Lucas threatens to break Wilt Chamberlain's NBA record of .528 established last season. Chamberlain with a .518 percentage thus far this season, trails the Cincinnati corn­ erman by a big margin. Chamberlain, however, continues to pace the scorers with 2.197 points and a 36.0 game average. Trailing the San Francisco giant in second place is Cincinnati's Oscar Robertson with 1,914 points with a 30.9 game average. Bob Pcttit of St. Louis holds down third place with 1,724 points and a 27.8 game average. In other departments, Robertson retained first place in free throw percentage (.854) and in assists, with 683 and a 11.0 game average.

The Las Vegas tournament is opeu only to winners of PGA fixtures, and there are seven more tournaments remaining in which the winners can earn a place in the Tournament of Champions.

The father of six girls and two boys, Piersall said his wife Mary will give birth to the couple's ninth child conveniently after the conclusion of the 1964 baseball season. Piersall, here as a free agent, has been toiling for a week in a bid to win an outfield berth with the Angels. The-35-year-old veteran was sidelined during the final weeks of the 1963 season with a pulled hamstring muscle but reported his legs now were sound. "They better be." said Piersall, "with nine kids, I've got to win a job."

The four-time Olympic gold medal winner was clocked in 1:34.9 for 1,000 meters and 5:11.4 for 3,000 meters. The Totem veteran last week opened up a gap of 13 points between himself and Denver's Lou Jankowski. Fielder has 15: goals and a remarkable 72 assists for 87 points.

Lakers limp into New York NEW YORK (UPI)-The Los Angeles Lakers limped into New York to take on the lowly Knickerbockers tonight in an attempt to gct back in the win column. The Lakers, who have lost 11 As told to HARRY GRAYSON NEA Sports Editor When you manage in the Na tional League as it is constitut ed today, it is unwise to predict where any outfit will finish. But as conservative as I am in forecasting baseball results I'm ready to take my chances with the Giants. Unquestionably, the most important move the San Francisco club is making is switching Jim my davenport, stickout third baseman for a half dozen years, to second. It is extraordinary to move an infielder of Davenport's caliber from one side of the in field to the other, but I believe he has special qualifications as a double play man teamed with Jose Pagan Davenport believes the change will hike his batting average. As a third baseman Jimmy felt he had to hit home runs. Now he can concentrate on meeting the ball.

After the game with the Knicks. the Lakers, now in third place in the western division of the National Basketball Association, move to Detroit to take on the Pistons twice. at third base. Hart is 22 and we have considered him a youngster most likely to succeed for four years. We feel that he would have helped us in 1963 when we brought him up from Tacoma of Billy Pierce will work with us at the Phoenix training base. H this scrappy veteran can recapture his 1962 form, the staff strength would move way up. Equally important is the relief staff. Here, too, I am afforded a wider choice than was possible a year ago. Shaw did his most effective work as the long inning relief worker for Milwaukee. Bolin with his stuff is a jam spot pitcher. Jim Duffalo and Don Larsen were consistently hard to hit last year. I have hopes for Ken McKenzie, the little left-hander. Training will focus attention on another new hand in addition to Hart. He is Jesus AIou, the third of the outfielding Alous, and I am banking on him taking brother Felipe's place in right field. I don't have to tell you about Willie Mays, Willie McCovey or Cepeda, but I have a feeling that the latter is pointing toward his finest year. Catchers Tom Haller and Del Crandall also explode the long ball. None of this is miss and out, however, for I will be permit- season. Unfortunately, he suf-|ted several alternatives. Chuck Jimmy Davenport the Pacific Coast League in midj CHANGING SEASON? fered a shoulder injury when hit by a pitched ball that put him out for the remainder of the campaign. The addition of the left-handed Bob Hendley and the right- handed Bob Shaw balanced our pitching. I believe we have the finest bunch of recruits since 1958, when Orlando Cepeda, Felipe Alou and Davenport made the big jump at first asking. We have superior down-t h e- order batting strength. I am counting on a five- man starting rotation. I b a v e Juan Marichal, Jack Sanford, Billy O'DeU, Hendley, Shaw and Bob Bolin to choose from, not counting the quality peagreens, Ron Herbel and Bob Garibaldi. Marichal won 25 games last trip as many as Sandy Koufax of Los \ngeles. Hiller is a proven major league second baseman and the versatile Harvey Kuenn will hold up his end and then some in the outfield. Heartening is the thought that this time around we'll be able to present a full 25-player roster, which insures a stronger dugout, sturdier pinch - hitting and a generally more effective utility squad. There will be no first-year men doing nothing but taking space on the roster. All of the clubs have improved and any of the six supposed contenders may find it easier to finish seventh than first But I feel that the Giants have the solid strength to get the job done.
