UCLA's team, guided by- coach Elvin (Ducky) Drake for the last season before his retirement as coach, is thinner in top material, but was heartened by the return after a year's absence of hurdler Mike Tisdale. The Bruins also have an outstanding prospect in sophomore distance runner Bob Day who has best marks of 4 :05 .7 in the mile and 9:17.7 in the two mile last scason. He will anchor UCLA's distance medley and two-mile relay teams. At Occidental College, the host school entertains Los Angeles State and the Pasadena twice in Los Angeles with ease this season, but faces something of a jinx at Palo Alto. The Bruins have won only one of their last five starts on Stanford's home court. USF, meanwhile, will be trying to extend its 12-game winning streak and its unbeaten (7-0) West Coast Athletic Conference record against St. Mary's. A Don's victory will give them at least a two-game advantage in the WCAC with just four games left to play.

With Jery Lucas and Oscar Robertson supplying the impetus, the Royals have shown that thc Celtics are no longer the invincible team of past years. The Lakers' hopes rest on the condition of Jerry West and the ailing legs of Elgin Baylor. West made the road trip despite wearing a splint on a broken thumb and he further was hampered by a twisted ankle. Baylor's knees have been bothering him all season. But in Thursday's game with the Detroit Pistons, West and Baylor were joined by Dick Barnctt in the top scoring three- 1 some and they were enough to pile up a 106-101 victory.

By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (UPI) — Fearless Fraley's facts and figures from the PGA Senior golf championship: Some of the hottest debates among the sports conscious seniors shooting for the Teachers Trophy concern the impending heavyweight title fight between Sonny Listen and Cassius Clay and it's surprising how many figure gaseous Cassius has a chance to win. It's a 5 to 1 proposition favoring Liston and, as one boxing bug pointed out, longer shots have won in title bouts. It's true. too. Jimmy Braddock was a 1-10 underdog against Max Baer and Ezzard Charles was a 6-1 choice when he was flattened by Jersey Joe Walcolt. This year's U. S. Open golf golf championship marks the 50th anniversary of the immortal Walter Hagen's first open championship victory at Midlo­ thian. It prompted an anonymous sportsman in Bellevue, Wash., to send a letter to Gene Sarazen at the Seniors, enclosing $5 to buy Hagan a couple of drinks. "Like so many other anonymous characters I have been the recipient of Hagen's hospitality," he wrote, adding that this would be an appropriate year for everyone who ever was toasted by the free-handed "Haig" to buy back. This, of course, would pickle Hagen for a thousand years. To save Hagen from such a fate, old Fearless consumed the original amount.. .Thank you, mister anonymous... Speaking of Sarazen, he is the only one of the more than 400 seniors on hand who still wears knickers. Which prompted 10- year-old Judy Corcoran, daughter of Canada Cup Tournament Manager Fred Corcoran, to ask the veteran squire: "What are you wearing, Mr.| Sarazen — bloomers?' _jet back on the win trail tonight j colton ended in third and ! rounds today and Sunday to be: Dra S Strip Sunday when a when they encounter the last-; Bloomington took {ourth in thc! playcd over the tougher 6.600-;p Ia f D fuel dragster fom Up- The 61-year-old Sarazen inci-jinto a good position for the dently claims that this is his;playoffs, last shot in the Seniors and that, following the Masters in April, be will retire completely from competitive golf.
