Hope M Star SPORTS Hope Girls Get Past Beebe 57-22 By RALPH ROUTON Star Sportswrlter Starling a new win streak with the greatest of ease, the Hope Lady Cats roared into the quarterfinals of the State Class A tourney by smacking Beebe 5722 last night In Prescott. It was easily the most one- sided win of the first day in the competition, in which eight games were played. Now the Lady Cats move opposite Leslie in the quarters tonight at 8:20 p.m. Hope Will be sport- Ing a 23-5 mark, while Leslie is 14-7 on the year. Never trailing from the word "go", the Lady Cats worked the ball underneath early, and Jumped to a 9-2 lead in 2'/2 minutes. The girls cooled down a bit after that, and a couple of outside shots brought the lead down to 15-7 at the quarter. In the second period the Hope guards were continuing to analyze their opponents, who nevertheless marked up 11 points in the period. But the Lady Cats scored 16 on their end, working into a 31 -18 lead at the halt. At this point Beebe was still in the ball game, but not for long. After 90 seconds of the third segment Hope had a 35-20 lead, with Beebe's points coming on free shots. About this time the guards on the Hope side decided what they what they had been doing wrong, and corrected it quickly. An Invisible board was placed on the Beebe basket, which didn't allow a shot to go through. Meanwhile the Lady Cats wound up the quarter with 12 points and a 47-20 lead. The spree continued on until 1:10 was left in the game, when Hope had gone 20-0 over 11 minutes of play. Still, Beebe did not sink a single field goal in the second half entirely, only scoring on four free throws. All three starting Lady Cat guards, Nellie Churchwell, Kay Coleman, Donna Byers, played letter-perfect games, with good assistance given by reserves Jenny Calllcott, Vickie Reeves, and Junanne Reynolds.

However, they were knocked off by Greenwood 58-51. fn anolher surprise Joe T. Robinson, a perennial winner, came out on the short end of a 6158 count at the hands of Mount Ida. Here are yesterday's re- Assodated Press Sports Writer suits and today's pairings, The way Pistol Pete Maravlch has been popping them In this season maybe they should let him fry to throw a basketball across the Rappahannock (or (he Potomac) as legend has It George Washington did with a silver dollar. The hot-shooting Louisiana State star, the nation's No. 1 scorer In college basketball, became the first sophomore to break the 1,000-polnt barrier In a single season by scoring 55 points in LSU's 99-92 victory over Tulane Wednesday night. Pistol Pete delighted a home town turnout at Baton Rouge as he upped his scoring for the season to 1,039 points in 22 games. He has three games left to try for the major record of 1,209 points In one season set by Frank Selvy of Furman In 29 games in 1954. Another soph star, Calvin Murphy of Niagara, threw in 50 points as the Purple Eagles whipped Buffalo at home 99-82, but once again the feat of the nation's No. 2 scorer was overshadowed by Pistol Pete. Third-ranked North Carolina made it 19 In a row by defeating Maryland 83-60 and the unbeaten fourth-ranked Brown Indians of St. Bonaventure won their 20th straight by whipping Canis- lus 79-62. Rusty Clark's 27 points paced North Carolina over Maryland at Chapel Hill. Bill Butler got the same total for St. Bonaventure and Bob Lanier grabbed 23 rebounds for the Bonnles as they whipped Canlsius at Clean, N \t •* .. \ .* ,-•,; t ; i"i >•' , I. .' f/s. 1 .,.*».' '"> - •'"• . •••' St. Bonaventure, NCAA-tour- nament bound, and North Carolina were the only teams In The Associated Press Top Ten to play, but there was plenty of action among other tournamt-nt- bound teams and those still hopeful of a bid. Dayton, hopeful of landing a bid to the NIT, made it seven In a row by routing the NCAA- bound Chicago Loyola Ramblers 91-75. Don May led the Flyers to their home court triumph with 33 points. Florida beat NCAA-bound Florida State at home'89-64 and Temple toppled NIT-bound Fordharn 80-70 in Philadelphia, In contrast three other NCAA- bound teams won. St. John's of New York edged Providence 58-56 on the road on free throws by Dan Cornelius and John Warren In the closing minutes. Boston College won at •home over Seton Hall 99-65 and New Mexico State, also playing at home, downed Texas-El Paso, 68-63. Villanova and Duquesne, each hopeful of an NIT bid, battled through two overtimes at Philadelphia before the Wildcats beat the Dukes 77-76 on Sam Simms' layup in the last three seconds, It was the second game of a Palestra doubleheader following the Temple-Fordham clash, Louisville, paced by Westley Unseld's 29 points and 19 rebounds, clinched at least a tie for the Missouri Valley Conference championship by beating Drake on the road 86-80, Bowling Green did likewise in the Mid-American Conference by downing Kent State on the road 65-63, Cincinnati also won on the road, beating Wichita State 8581. In other games, St. Joseph's of Philadelphia edged Fairfield 82-78 at New Haven. 50LUNAR TABLES ly Richard Aldt n Knight Thf schedule of SolLinar Periods, as printed below, has taken from Richard Alden Knight's SOLUNAR TABLES.

Three thousand dollars worth of good news. One of the most important provisions of an agreement between club owners and the players association that was announced Wednesday was the raising of the minimum major- league salary from $7,000 a year to $10,000. In addition, the players won some other monetary concessions including an increase in meal allowances, spring training expenses and a lessening of the amount salaries may be reduced from one season to the next. Top non-economic concessions included studies of possible alternatives to the reserve clause and of the length of the season, both to be completed next year. The agreement was announced by John J. Gaherin, advisor to the owners' player relations committee, Negotiations for the owners were carried on by Joe Cronln, president of the American League; Warren Giles, president of the National League; Gaherin and other lawyers, Representing the players were Marvin J. Miller, executive director of the players association; Richard M. Moss, couBsel; and player represent tives of 12 major4eague clubs, The agreement is for two years and was made effective as of last Jan. I, Meal and tip allowances for players when their teams are on the road were increased from $18 to $15 a day. Spring training meal allotments for players liv* ing away from club headquarters went up from $8 to $}2 a day. Miscellaneous spring train^ ing allowances went up from $25 a week to $40. Salaries may only be reduced 20 per cent from the previous season rather than 25 per cent a,$ in the past. Moving expenses for players called up from the minors will be paid and provisions for first-class travel and hotel facilities were agreed In addition, the practice of continuing salary payments to players who spend two weeks during the season in Army Reserve or National Guard sum- mer camps was formalized. The study of alternatives to the reserve clause, the one under which players are traded, will be completed by December 31, 1969, while the study of the length of the season Is to be finished before next season's schedule Is drawn up.

Bell Gurdon 89 Didn't Dream He Would Set a Record By BEN THOMAS Associated Press Sports Writer BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Basketball Coach Press Marav- lch says he thought before the season began that his talented son, Pistol Pete, "would average 20-25 points a game" and would be the playmaker for the Louisiana State team, Neither dreamed that the frail-looking youngster would become the first sophomore to score 1,000 points In a season. With 8:31 to go in the first half Wednesday night in the game with traditional rival Tulane, Pete scored on a layup. It was his 16th point of the night and gave him 1,000 for 23 games. Only Frank Selvy of Furman, Oscar Robertson of Cincinnati awl Billy McGill of Utah have collected 1,000 or more in one season and they were seniors at the time, Pete didn't stop at 1,000, He wound up the night with 55 as the Tigers downed Tulane 99-92. Jt pushed his total to 1,039^ and he has three games yet to play, "He's the greatest outside shooter in the country," said Tylane's acting coach, Tom Nissalke. "And he's a magician on the floor, too." Maravicb now is second among the alUtime single season scorers. Selyy canned 1,209 points in 1954, playing in ?9 games—three more than Pete will play. Robertson had l.ou in 30 games in 1960 while McGill had 1,009 in 26 games two seasons later. Pete also is a wizard at ball- handling, passing, blocking and stealing.
