Hope M Star SPORTS 51 Points Not Enougt LSI! Loses By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer Pistol Pete Maravleh gave It to Georgia with both guns but when the dust had cleared, the Bulldogs had survived a lot better than Louisiana Stale. Maravich, the LSU sophomore who leads the country's collegiate basketball scorers, poured in 51 points against Georgia Monday night but the barrage couldn't overcome a balanced Bulldog attack that produced a 78-73 Southeastern Conference victory. And while Maravich was shooting up Georgia, Baron Adolph Rupp's Kentucky Wildcats slipped into the SEC lead by edging Tennessee 60-59. The eighth ranked Wildcats pulled it out in the final minutes with three sophomores— Mike Casey, Mike Pratt and Dan Issel—doing the bulk of the job. It was seventh-ranked Tennessee's second straight SEC loss and dropped the Vols one half game back of Kentucky. Meanwhile, North Carolina, ranked third in The Associated Press poll, rolled to its 16th straight victory, beating North Carolina State 96-84. Charlie Scott, another soph, poured in 34 points for the Tar Heels. Larry Miller had 24 and became the third highest scorer in NC history with 1,714. Eddie Biedenbach led the losers with 28. Georgia had four players in double figures with Bob Lienhard's 28 points tops. Uenhard, a6-foot-li soph, hit 12of 19from the floor and four of nine free throws. Maravich connected on 20 of 47 field goals and was 11 for 18 from the foul line. Casey, who led Kentucky's scorers with 17 points, put the Wildcats on top 58-57 with one minute left and Issel, who had 15, followed with another basket. Then the Wildcats held Tennessee off. Pratt, Rupp's other soph, finished with 15. "What magnificent ball those lads played," exulted Rupp afterwards. "The fine thing about this game was that those boys didn't lose their poise at all." In the Big Ten, Wisconsin's hot-shooting Badgers knocked off front running Ohio State 8678 as Joe Franklin's 23 points led a balanced attack. The loss cut OSU's lead to one-half game over idle Northwestern and Iowa. Wisconsin is fifth in the conference. Henry Tyson scored 23 points, 18 of them in the first half as Dartmouth nipped Cornell 64-63 in an Ivy League game. Texas-El Paso romped over Arizona State 87-69 as Andy White hit seven of his first eight shots. White finished with 21 points and Nate Archibald led the Miners with 22. In other games, Providence topped DePaul 71-60, Oklahoma City ripped Denver 100-86, Kansas State tripped Creighton 8575, Colorado dropped Missouri 79-76 in overtime and Georgia Tech whipped Jacksonville 9777.

Mississippi Law, carrying 114 pounds, will be making his racing debut. Mississippi Law is trained by Doug Davis Jr., the developer of Mississippi Girl. Davis also entered G. M.

They're the Judges of the figure skating competition. "They can take a dislike to you if they don't like the way you fix your hair, and they can mark you down for it," said one of the lady competitors, "This sport always has been riddled with politics,"commented one official of the American team. "You put your whole career in their hands," The Judges are a strange and mysterious group. They stand around the ice in long coats and with their arms loaded with papers and rating cards. In the school figures, in which the competitors trace intricate designs on the ice, they get down on their hands and knees to examine the tracings, It's a peculiar sight, You'd think they were looking for a lost contact Jens, The Iron Curtain judges - the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia, Romania, etc, almost always downgrade the Western skaters, The Western judges hit back by low.rating the Reds, The International Figure Skating Federation recently took note of the discrepancies in judging and called for the end of politics, The plea apparently fell on deaf ears, "You have to watch your manners," sai<J one competitor, "You must be sure to smile at the judges and treat them nice, 1 ' Families and coaches of fig, ure skaters have been known to vine and dine judges to curry their fayor, It works, The word around the stade <i$ Glace here in the Winter Olymt pics is that Emmerich panzer of Austria, the world champioa, has lost &vor with the judges and may be beaten out of an Olympic gold medal, "He's become awfully cocky/-' a rival saidj "The judges notice that." §? WORMS Associated Press Writer GREN6BLE, Prance (AP) Hie united States Alplfte ski team, beset by injuries through the early part of the Winter Olympics Games, stood poised oh the brink of a major victory today**- with spunky teenagers Judy Nagel and Klki Cutter carrying the medal hopes in the women's special slalom despite the disqualification of two other American Contenders. Judy, a 16-year-old latecomer to the U.S. Olympic squad from Enumclaw, Wash., streaked Into the lead over favored Marlelle Goitschel of Prance and Nancy Greene of Canada in the first of two slalom runs on the slopes of Chamrousse. Klki, 18, of Bend, Ore., aiso was among the leaders as the girls readied themselves for the final swoop down the course. But Wendy Allen of San Pedro, Calif,, was disqualified for missing a gate after posting the best time of all 49 entrants and Rosle Portna of Warren, Vt., also was set down after flashing into a contending position. The United States was shut out of the medals again Monday, but Billy Kidd turned in the day's best performance in the giant slalom, won by France's fantastic Jean-Claude Killy. Killy took a second heat run down the 57-gate, 1,780-meter course In 1:46.54 for a combined time of 3:29.28 and an easy victory. Kidd, of Stowe, Vt., a silver medalist in the event four years ago, had the day's best time, 1:46.46, which lifted him from eighth after the first run to fifth over-all with a combined time of 3:32.37. Jim Heuga of Squaw Valley, Calif., the bronze medal winner in 1964, finished 10th with a time of 1:48.43 for 3:33.89. "No medals today," the dejected Kidd said. "But we still have another chance." That will be in the special slalom Friday and Saturday when Killy seeks a third gold medal. He won the downhill last week and seeks to become only the second man in history to sweep all three. Tony Sailer of Austria turned 'the 'trick,; in 1956, and predicts that Killy can't match it. "I don't think Killy can do it," Sailer said. "He has too much pressure on him. Besides, he's past his peak." And he added that the slalom courses are easier now than in his day. Killy, a handsome, 24-year- old, retorted that today's competition "is much more difficult. I think in winning two gold medals I already -have matched Sailer's feat in 1956. If I should win the slalom, it would be a much greater achievement." Aside from Killy, the Americans' achievements were modest at best. Jeanne Ashworth, Wilmington, N.Y., managed only a 10th- place finish behind winner Johanna Schut of the Netherlands in the women's 3,000-meter speed skating and Army Cpl. Ralph C. Wakely, Murray, Utah, was the top American, 27th, in the biathlon. His time was one hour, 27 minutes, 32.9 seconds. The event was won by Magnar Solberg of Norway in 1:13:45.9. Warm . weather and rain forced still another postponement in the singles luge (small sled) race, The hockey team scored four times in the last 10 minutes of the second period to break it open against West Germany, Doug Volmfir of Minneapolis had two goals in the burst, while Lou Nanne, Minneapolis and Army Pvt. lurry Pleau, sta* Honed at Ft, Campbell, Ky., had the others, Making Sure The Garden Makes fee NEW YORK (AP) - The stockholders can rest easy.

That was the number of points poured in by three separate players. Clncy Powell shattered a Dallas scoring record with his 43 in a 114-101 victory over Denver, snapping the Chaparrals' six-game losing string. On the West Coast, Ben Warley and Willie Somerset matched that total as Warley's Anaheim club nipped Houston and Somerset, 145-142 in overtime. Warley also set an ABA record, hitting 16 straight baskets, snapping the previous mark of 10 by teammate Lefty Thomas, set last month. In other ABA games, New Jersey downed New Orleans 118-109 and Kentucky stopped Eastern Division leader Pittsburgh 131-107. In the only National Basketball Association game, Chicago tripped Cincinnati 112-104 in overtime. Powell, who set the previous Dallas scoring record Sunday against Minnesota, hitting for 41 points, wasted little time in breaking it as he sparked Dallas to an early lead and the Chaps never were headed. Larry Jones topped Denver with 23 points. Warley began his streak in the second quarter, hitting on six straight shots to put Ana- helm ahead 70-65 at the half after the Amigos had trailed earlier by 14 points. Warley ripped off 10 more in a row in a torrid third quarter which saw Anaheim streak ahead 87-71. Then Somerset, a 5-foot-10 guard, triggered a tie for Houston at 129-129 after regulation time. The Americans reeled off five straight points just before halftime for an 11-point edge and 180 Delegation From Canada MEXICO CITY (AP) - The Mexican Olympic Organizing Committee said today Canada has registered a preliminary delegation for the 19th Olympiad to be held here in October.
