22 THE YORK DISPATCH, MONDAY, JANUARY 4, 1971. Soccer Stadium Turns Killer GLASGOW, Scotland (UPI) -Until 4:45 pjtn. Saturday, Passage 13s mark in history was it usually collected more empty whisky bottles than other stairways at Ibrox Park soccer stadium. But at that moment, Passage 13 turned killer. Hundreds of Glasgow Hangers fans,- some fighting upward but more surging down, collided on the concrete steps. A small boy fell. Other men tumbled trying' to avoid him. The crowd pressure was so fierce that arms were hopelessly pinned at the sides. One of the gray, tubular steel barriers used as handrails and passage charnels collapsed with a dull crack. The massive force of human Wight that snapped it. surged down almost 49 feet of stairway in a gathering wave of bodies. House of Cards It was like a collapsing house of cards, a witness said. Man piled upon boy, boy piled upon man. Many suffocated. A few were fatally trampled. It was over in about two minutes. Police said 53 persons died in the stadium. Another 13 died enroute to hospitals. But for what happened at 4:44 p.m. on the playing field below, Passage 13 might still be just another concrete stairway in the vast stadium. What happened at 4:44 p.m. was what every Glasgow Ranger fan in the 20.000 seat and standing places served by Passage 13 wanted Colin Stein netted a goal 16 seconds before the final whistle to tie archrival Glasgow Caltic 1-1. One minute before, Celtic had scored. It was a misty finger numbing 26 degrees. Hundreds of Rangers fans, resigned to defeat, flocked down the stairs. About halfway along the 80 steps they heard a huge roar. It was for Stems goal. Most tamed back. As they climbed upward, the final whistle blew. The rest of the Rangers fans took it as a signal to sweep down Passage 13 Everybody was pushing forward but when they realized what was happening they tried to fall back, said , William Stevenson. No Identification . Everything was confused. There were arms and legs sticking out all over the place. We saw a young girl about 18 who seemed in a bad way. We got her out of the fallen crowd but she was dead when we reached a dressing room. The victims shoes and jackets were often ripped off. There was only one way of identifying many an anxiuos relative. By midday Sunday, a few still were unidentified. Has anyone seen my wee laddie? a grandmother wept as police handed her a cup of tea. One of the unidentified was a boy about 11, a blue and white Rangers scarf snug around his throat. It was not her wee laddie. The tears still flowed. LANCASTER FIVE DEFEATS .

(Rt 250) YORK OFFICIAL PENNSYLVANIA State INSPECTION STATION -NO. 6395 YORK MALL (United Pres International) Coach John Wooden admits his UCLA Bruins have already accomplished the impossible. Anyone who knows anything about basketball would think its impossible to win four straight NCAA titles and six in the last seven years, Wooden explains. Ail they can do for an encore is keep widening the incredibility gap by running their winning streak right into another national title. The Bruins took another step in that direction Saturday night by crushing Dayton 106-82, using a full court press and the sharpshooting of Sidney Wicks with 29 points and Henry Bibby with 19. The victory was the 14th straight for UCLA, and Wooden called Dayton probably the best team weve met this season. Now we should be getting up for the Conference games, Wooden added. Ivp never stressed non-conference games as much. Its nice to win, but I put the emphasis on the Pacific Eifgit games. One of the Bruins' biggest challenges for a fifth straight NCAA title might come from another Pacific Eight game right on the other side of town. Southern California. The Trojans, ranked fourth, came through with an 80-76 overtime victory over No. 18 Louisiana State in their last test before the start of the conference season. Two Showdowns UCLA and Southern Cal face two crucial showdowns on Feb. 6 and the final game of the regular season, March 12. Southern Cal, unbeaten in 10 games this season, had to overcome a 10 point deficit in the final 4:58 of regulation time' to tie the game at 72-72 and then outscored LSU 8-4 in overtime. Paul Westphal, who wound up with 16 points, sank four free throws in the final 21 seconds to notch the victory. Three other teams in the top 20 fell along with LSU. Drake, j ranked ninth, lost to Cincinnati 60-59; Mississippi State upset No. 12 Tennessee 69-67; and Los Angeles State defeated No.. 15 Colorado State 77-75. In other games involving the top 20, No. 2 South Carolina defeated Clemson 81-53, No. 3 Marquette beat Detroit 70-61, No. 5 Western Kentucky edged East Tennessee 86-83, No. 7 Kentucky beat Mississippi. 103-95, No. 8 Jacksonville subdued the Virgin Iislands 105-95. Two free throws by sophomore guard Dave Johnson in the last 20 seconds provided victory for Cincinnati and disappointment for Drake, which rang out the old year and rang in the new with losses. With Cincinnati leading 58-57, Drakes Bobby Jones lost the ball out of bounds as be drove for the basket in the last half minute. Johnson was then fouled as he brought the ball back upcourt and sank the deciding free throws to make it 60-57. Eight Straight ' Unbeaten South Carolina used a balanced attack, including 18 points from guard John Roche, to push its record to 9-0 in an Atlantic Coast Conference game. The Gamecocks jumped to a 21-8 lead and stretched it to 30 points before substituting freely. With the score tied 11-11, Marquette rolled off eight straight points and Detroit never got closer than six points again. Guard Dean Meminger scored 25 points to lead the Warriors to: their ninth 'straight victory. Jim McDaniels, who finished with 29 points, led Western Kentuckys second-half rally to nip East Tennessee, The victory was the Hilltoppers eighth against a lone toss to South Carolina in the ECAC Holiday Festival final. Johnny Neumann, the nations leading scorer, got 46 points in a losing cause for Mississippi against Kentucky.

College Ave. gym Coatemlle at Pottstown York AC saw a second-half comeback fall short Saturday night at the College Avenue gym as Lancaster held on to hand the locals their fourth straight Middle Atlantic Amateur Basketball League loss, 89-85. With the victory the visitors avenged their only MAABL toss of the season in four outings while dropping Yorks record to 2-5. Lancaster added to its 21-20 first quarter lead with an eight-point cushion hi the second 10-minute session but the Yorkers charged back after halftime and with just 13 seconds left in the third quarter Charlie Brabham, the losers leading scorer, can ned a field goal to tie things at 61-61. Both squads grabbed the advantage in the fourth stanza until with just under three minutes on the clock the winners A1 Ellis and Ron Morris converted York turnovers to give Lancaster a four-point lead it never relinquished.

Mike Parker, a 6-4 forward, led all scorers with 25 and Bob Means added 15 for Lancaster while Brabham threw in 23 and Charlie Sexton hit 20 for York. The locals Bill Wright pulled down 18 rebounds to lead both teams. A second Saturday outing saw unbeaten Pottstown top Coates-ville, 104-97, while Lancaster came back Sunday to knock off the Coatesville outfit, 97-83. & JACKSONVILLE, Ha. (UPI) Its on to the Hula Bowl for Archie Maiming, the courageous Ole Miss quarterback who wan the hearts of Gator Bowl fans Saturday in the Rebels 35-28 toss to Auburn. Maiming, his broken left arm encased in a cumbersome plastic sleeve, rallied the Rebels from an early 21-6 deficit as he matched the faultless play of Auburns Pat Sullivan in a game billed as a battle to determine the Souths No. 1 quarterback. Manning weaved his way 42 and 37 yards on breathtaking runs to set up the final Ole Miss touchdown, and then watched completely exhausted as reserve quarterback Shug (humbler tried desperately to pull the game out in the closing minutes. I dont think that old hospital bed ever got off my back, said Manning. I never really got my wind back after I went into the hospital with (he broken arm after the Houston game, and I really felt it today. The arm didnt hurt me any, but it did kind of get in the way, admitted Maiming, a certain early choice in the professional draft later this month.

Wed like to thank the makers of the other new economy edrs for giving us such a nice head start. it gave us time to develop an inspection system so ridiculously scrupulous that it expects every VW to pass 1 6,000 examinations. It allowed us to find out tat a reasonably scientific pacel how we could double our horsepower without doubling the cost of your horsepower. (The VW still gets about 26 miles to the gallon end requests only o smidgen of oil.) It permitted us to work on. things that didnt Steuben Motors, Inc. 3475 East Market Street Route 30 York even have to do with the actual making of the car. Medi-car, the Volkswagen Diagnosis System, for example. Electronic equipment that con spot trou- ble in a car before it gets to be trouble. When you buy a new VW, you get 4 free Medi-car checkups. Of course, it took great fortitude to resist squandering our time on phony styling improvements. The beetle looks fust os good (or bod) as it did 25 years ago. 88 is MITNOlUa i
