Trailing by 20 points in the first half, the Knlcks went to work and gradually cut the deficit on the hot shooting of Frazier and Bellamy. They pulled to within three points, then fell eight behind at the outset of the fourth quarter. *. Bradley came off the bench to contribute three key baskets and a free throw as New York stormed from behind and then outdueled the Celtics down the stretch. ; Philadelphia broke open a close game in the third period and coasted home behind the scoring of Hal Greer, 29, and Chet Walker, 27. Wilt Chamberlain added 19 points to the Philadelphia attack and handed out 16 assists. Rudy LaRusso led San Francisco with 25.

"We will have a slightly different car at Sebrtng," said Hans Herrmann of Germany who drove the second place car with Jo Siffert of Switzerland and also took a brief turn in the eventual winner. "It will be the same engine but a slightly shorter body." Alfa Romeo of Italy, whose three small car entries at Day. tona finished fifth, sixth and seventh, is reported ready to unveil a bigger, three-liter engine at Sebring. "We have always had competition," was Porsche manager Huschke Von Hanstein's reaction. "We are not afraid." He admitted Porsche, too, is working on a larger engine than the 2.2-liter used in its three-car victory sweep. But it won't be ready for Sebring and maybe not for any of the races'on.this year's International schedule toward the manufacturer's championship. Vic Elford, a 32-year-old Englis^man. t had .theihpnojr of starting arid "finishing ».the;-'winning car. A pair of faster and bigger en- gined GT-40 Fords from England showed early speed.

There is also a gendarme, French version of cop, and a taxi-driver with a cigarette dangling from the end of his mouth—and now, more likely than not, a pretty young thing in a red bunny fur packet and tight stretch pants. She's one of the 350 official hostesses gathered unto Grenoble for the 10th staging of the Winter Olympics, all properly trained in the etiquette of the program by Mile. Solangc Catry. chief stewardess of Air France on detached service to the cause of international good will. Staging an Olympics is perforce an exercise in organized chaos because anybody who's got the idea that Grenoble is where the action is belter get reoriented. It's only where Mademoiselle H p s t e s s e hangs her miniskirt. Actually, Grenoble is a little industrial city tucked into the Alps, where the rivers Isere and Drac meet and where the locals are still prepared to evacuate quickly to the crumbling fortresses that dot the hillside over the old part of town to ward off the hordes of invaders. It has been called a French Peoria — no disparagement intended, because it has a big university (more than 15,000 students), a fine rep- 'BON JOUR!' utation for scientific and Qne of mie Cair ^ s girls industrial research, and is a good place to buy the little lady gloves. There is one go-go joint a couple of blocks from the Place Victor Hugo. There is also a Place de la Bastille and a Place de Verdun, so you can't quite forget you're in France. THE MINISKIRT gawking isn't too good. Find a miniskirt and you'll find a Parisienne. The locals are much too modest and sedate for such ostentation. Almost all of Mile, Catry's hostesses have been imported for the Games and speak many languages. No, Jacques, there is no universal language—at least, for the duration, which is two weeks. Soiange has knelled curfew for 10 p.m. Of course, it's different at the ski resorts in the environs, where the greatest attention centers, and the biggest diversion is watching the stretch pants squiggle. It's worth the many hairpin turns up the mountains to Chamrousse for the Olympic downhill and slalom events or to Alpe d'Huez for the bobsled. Both are to the east. On the western side of Grenoble lies St. Nizier. the ski jumping site. All also specialize in apres-ski activities In Grenoble, the concentration is on ice—ice hockes. figure skating, speed skating. If a man's taste runs to Scutch on ice. he's well-heeled. It also runs to three bucks a shot Bustling Grenoble, with its quarter ol a million inhabitants, is also the touch-off point for the party, in the temporary stadium seating 60.000 for the opening day ceremonies, with 2.300 contestants from 3,3 nations on parade.
