Nelson and District Manager Eldon P. Holmes. Long range objectives of the plan include development of pub lie access to the area and in some instances in the Interior for habitat improvement and better distribution of the public, maintenance o£ ejdsting habitat, and improvement of water by development of springs, par ticularly for quail and chukar use finds winning combination but UCU big test LOS ANGELES (UPI)-The University of Southern Califor nia, winner in five of its last seven Big Six basketball games, has finally found a winning combination, but still may not be able to come close to UCLA in the regular season finale ne.xt Friday. After dropping their firt ssLx conference games, the Trojans assured themselves of a fourth place finish in the Big Six with a 85-64 victory Monday over Washmgton. The 85 points was the highest game total this sea son for use. But in the first game of the collegiate doublcheadcr at the Sports Arena, unbeaten UCLA coasted to its 2Sth straight victory 87-57 over California with its familiar pattern of dominance. Bniin guard Gail Goodrich, a torrid sharpshooter from the outside, led all scorers with 23 points despite being taken out of the game with six minutes remaining.

Other game species present are deer, doves, pigeons and cottontail rabbits. Several species of carnivorous mammals, hawks, owls, eagles. \Tdtures, roadrun- ncrs, and many species of passerine birds also inhabit the area. The area is also the winter range for most of the migra tory deer that summer in the Kern Plateau to the north. The management area was es fablished by Public Land order No. 2394 dated January 26, 1962. at the request of the CaU- fomia Department of Fish and Game.

St. Louis Hawlcs not ready to concede By United Prtss International The SL Louis Hawks are not yet ready to concede the National Basketball Association's Western Division title to tlie San Francisco Warriors. Bob Pettit brought the Hawks ifrom a 13-point third period deficit Monday night to a 111102 victory over the Warriors. That pulled the Hawks to within 2'i games of the pace-setting Warriors in the division race with nine games left to play. But the Hawks have a decid- icd manpower advantage over I San Francisco for the stretch run. Two key Warriors — Nate Thurmond and Gary Phillips — are sidelined with injuries and big Wilt Chamberlain has been slowed by an assortment of aches and bruises. Chamberlain played with a strained wrist Monday night and could manage only 27 points, which is far below his normal output The Warnors, who were playing their fifth game in five I nights in five different cities, held a 54-49 lead over St Louis at haiftimc.

Flamingo Failures Wn I There is nothing certain in horse racing, however, and two other recent Kentacky Derby winners won the big one after proving disappointments in the Flamingo. Count Turf ran Kxth in a 12-horse Flamingo field and came back to win the Kentucky canter. Iron Leige ran third in a seven-borse field and yet went up to Churchill Downs and took the story bo<* race. Yet, Florida racing has pro- Iduced 16 of the last 26 Derby winners and seven of the last dght The list includes such as Whirlaway, Qtation. Carry Back and last year's Derby winner, Chateaugay. The chief danger of such buildup races as the Flamingo, when looking ahead to the one they all want to win at the Louisville oat burning plant, is that they send them up out of Florida hailed as "wonder" horses. Of the last five Flamingo winners, only Carry Back in 1961 was able to make off with the roses. Never Bend, last year's Flamingo winner, finished second in the Derby. Candy Spots, another impres sive Florida winner, dropped the duke, too, when they got it up in the bourbon bdt Two years back they were [hailing Ridan as the. latest in the seemingly annual crop of "wonder" horses. The best he could do, although he won the Ftorida Derby, was third in Kentucky. Bally Ache, the 1960 Flamingo king, finished second in the Derby and First Landing, the 1959 "pink" winner, was third at the Downs. The Canadian bred Northern Dancer, with artful Willie Shoemaker up, and Louis Wolfson's Roman Brother, ridden by Bob Ussery, are the two top choices in today's Flamingo. But these three year old colts are coming off a two-year-oid son in which nothing was a particular stick- out There's a feeling in this corner that some rank outsider will win over both of them. But' no matter who wins the race, it still will be wide open in the Derby until they take the picture the first Saturday in May. Meanwhile, you can't knock that ^,830 first money. Nor, to be honest the S27,6« some-' body will pick up for second. Personally, needing the money, I hope to break even. WHL leaders hold on to their statistics By United Pre*» Intemitiond The Western Hockey League's best scorer and top goalie were not loo sharp last week, but they still held onto their lop sided leads in the latest WHL statistics. Guyle Fielder of Seattle managed only one assist in two games, but he has a 13-point bulge in the scoring race with 94 points, while Norm Johnson of Los Angeles moved up to third at 76 after a big week which saw him hit one goal and four assists. Jankowski's 37 goals and Fielder's 79 assists are ,the league highs in those departments. Denver's Al Millar let 19 goals sail by in four games, but still is the top net-minder with an average of 2.85. Seattle's' Claude Dufour is a distant sec ond at 3.13. Mike Donaldson of Portland was the only league leader who helped himself out last week, lie sat out six penalties to run this season total to 178 minutes in the penally bin. He has nine games left to play to stirpass the league mark of 210 minutes set by Frank Araett in 1959. There were no games Monday night, but Denver is at Vancouver and Portland at San Francisco tonight Denver has cinched one play off spot and last-place Vancouver seems out of the running. That still leaves Portland (60 points), SealUe (59), Los Angeles (58), and San Francisco (56) fighting for three playoff berths. NBA Standings Eastern Division W. L. Pet.

(UPI) —The Los Angeles Angels wiQ sharpen their batting eyes today in a drill intended to help them prepare for the start of the spring exhibition season. And this year, the Angels can be expected to put more stress than ever on the conditioning factor—and less on just who wins what games in the Cactus League. The Angels were the hottest team in the West last spring, up to and through the city series with the Los Angeles Dodgers. But the magic of March and April turned into a nightmare by May, when the pre-season games count for nothing. The Angels, who had to limit their workouts Monday to conditioning sessions lasthig about 20 minntes because of raia and wind, meet in another intra- sqnad game Wednesday. The exhibition slate starts Satorday against the (3ucago C^bs. The Angels are pretty much intact for the season as far as players are concerned. Only infieUer Felix Torres had yet to sign, and he was expected to come through by the end of the week. U R vs. Cal Western in NAIA playoff University of Redlands Bui!-; dog basketball team hopes toi gain the first part of their' ticket to Kansas City tonight when they meet Cal Western in the Pomona College gym at 8 p.m. Tickets arc on sale at Corner gym on the UR campus.

A second game will be played Wednesday night in the Pomona gym and if needed a third on Thursday evening at 7:30 p.m. at the same site. Coach Lee Fulmer's Bulldogs, champions of the SCIAC with a perfect 10-0 record, look to be in good shape for the playoffs. Starting will be 5-U Gary Smith and 6 foot Dave Mohs in the backcourt. Up front the Redlands Cag- ers will have Bob Engberg andj George Newmycr al the forwards and Dick Fisher at center. "Cal Western is a quick team and their big man. center, is a lop defensive player, he blocks a let of shots and not just the man he is guarding."' coach Fulmer said. The Westerners are not inclined to fast break unless they intercept a pass or get a re- tx>und out from under the hoop quickly, and then "they can fly" Fulmer said. Leading the Cal Western squad is 6-8 center Steve Crowell, a sophomore who helped the team to gain the Distn'ct Three crown last season as a freshman. Except for CroweD the Westerners will be shorter than the Bulldogs. Going to the forwards jvill be two good jumpers 6-2 John Carlylc and 6-1 Lem Lemons. Lemons is the shooter on the team when he is hot he can hit from any point on the co-art. Guards for the Westerners are 60 Jim Heffner and all-District Thre choice last year and 6-1 Wally Joerndt. Heffner is rated a real tough player in the backcourt by Fid- mar and he and Smith should have quite a battle toniSh'". and tomorrow night and again on Thursday if the series goes the full distance, Followng the playoffs the annual District Tfiree National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Basketball Awards dinner will be held Friday at Knott's Berry Farm. Awards wiU be presented to the all-District players, the coach of the year will be named and the champions will be given a send off The entire University of Redlands team will take pari in the evening affair starting at 7:30 p.m. Alston coaching champs in bunt, hit-and-run \T:R0 BEAOT, Fla. (OTn- Manager Walt Alston predicts his world champion Los Angeles Dodgers will "hit-and-run and bunt even more than last year" and has instituted a new spring training drill to improve those skills. As each player comes to the batting cage a runner is stationed on first base. On the first pitch, the batter is to move him along on a hit-and-run play, then he is to bunt the runner along to third base and home. Only then does the batter take his five full cuts. Alston admitted readily last season that his chib had to fight and claw for runs via speed on the bases, bunts, hit-and-run plays and other strategy to make up for the club's lack of explosive hitting power. With no drastic improvement in Dodger power hilling likely this season, Alston uitends to improve the other means of run-scoring. Despite (he late start in spring training, Alston Monday said he is "very satisfied" with progress. "We've had a good supply of pitching both days because most of our pitchers wrkcd out in Los Angeles dur ing the winter." Alston praised the hitting of National League batting cham-' pion Tommy Davis, Ron Fairly and John Roseboro in a 2 '/2 -hour workout Monday. "Fairly hit the ball real good to left field," the manager said. "Davis and Roseix>ro hit hard to all fields." CHIEFS SIGN TWO KANSAS QTY, Mo. (UPI)The Kansas City Chiefs of the American Football League have signed flanker back Glen Tal- bcrt of Northwestern Louisiana and Notre Dame end Leo Seller. Both report to the Chiefs' training camp at Liberty, Mo., on July 19. Tom Dose's wild scoring burst sets new record By United Press International' Stanford center Tom Dose, was his school's all-time scoring king today following the wildest scoring burst of his career on the Farm. He Monday night fired 42 points through the hoop as the Indians moved into a second place Big Six fie mth Califor nia by flattening Washington State. 81-55. The Bears tried to stop the UCLA steam-roller and were mashed, 87-57, for the national ly first - ranked Bruins 25th straight win. use took on Washington in (he nightcap of a Los Angeles Big Six t-nin bill and cemented fourth place with an 85-64 romp. Dose's 42 points broke Ron Tomsic's Stanford Pavilion record by two points and his arecr total of 1428 also bettered Tomsic's mark of 1386. The Great Hank Luisetti still ho'ds the Stanford one - game mark of 50 points—set almost 20 years ago. Dose will have one more opportunity to fatten his point total when Stanford and Calif omia tangle this weekend in the season's finale for both teams. The winner of that one will take second place in the Big sLx. The Bears Jlonday night were never in the game at Los An geles. UCLA built up an 11-1 lead and led by as much as 31 points in the second half. The great Bruin guard com bination of Walt Hazzard and Gai! Goodrich dommated the proceedings as usuaL Goodrich had 23 and Hazzard 18. Big Camden Wall scored 14 for the Bears. Southern California could still give UCLA trouble this weekend, if the Bruins are looking ahead to the NCAA tournament. The Trojans made it five \vins in their last seven games with their lop-sided win over the Huskies. Al Young scored 24 for Troy, as did Clint Peeples of t h e Huskies. One other game Monday night found powerhouse Portland closing out its season with an 88-84 win over Gonzaga. Tom Nichols had 23 for Portland, and Elmer Deschaine 28 and Billy Suter 26 for Gonzaga. Santa Clara's Broncos will be out to halt San Francisco's 15- game win string tonight at the USF gyro. The Broncs have been dogged by injuries all season, but are at full strength at this one. The game will also match the league's two top scorers. Santa Clara's Kuss Vrankovich and USF's Ollie Johnson. Meanwhile, United Press International named UCLA the nation's top team for the ninth straight week. Oregon State, which wound up its season with a 25-3 mark, was accorded the fifth position. The Bruins and Beavers are e.xpected to fight it out in the NC.-V^\ regionals for Ihe right to represent the West m the na- ional finals. San Francisco was in a tie for 18th place and Utah State in a tie for 20th. Seattle drew some support, too. These three teams also will be in the NCJ^A regionals along with the West- em Athletic Conference king, probably Arizona State. The northern California basketball writers named USF's Johnson the area's player of the year and picked an all-star team that included Dose, Vrankovich and UOP's Leo Middleton and Bill Wilson. USF coach Pete Peletta was named coach of the year.
