Hope M Star SPORTS Tonight Is Important to Bobcats a y RALPH ROUTON Star Sportswrlter Although the Season's record Itself Is not particularly success* ful, the Hope Bobcats forget all of the past now, realizing that two wins would place them In the state tourney next week, Tonight the Bobcats start the makeor-break series of the 4« AA district tournament, meeting up with the last-place club In the Eastern division of 4-AA« This in itself is a good pairing, and the locals would play Falrvlew should they capture the quarterfinal berth this evening in the 9:15 p.m. contest at Southern State College In Magnolia. For the Cats, their desire could make the difference in any ball* game, and there is plenty of spirit on the squad. And the task is now set before them, In the next two evenings. If they should be beaten, though, the year for basketball would be over. The team needs the fans' support badly here at the close of the season, and a strong following would certainly enhance the Bobcats' enthusiasm and desire to greater heights. Let's have a lot of support tonight at Magnolia, and you can bet that it will be appreciated. Match Play Golf Likely to Return By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Match play golf, which disappeared from the pro circuit 10 years ago, may make a return, Professional Golf Association President Max Elbin said today. "A number of proposals have been made," -Elbin said,'"and- are under consideration. "It could be as early as this fall, perhaps something of a spin-off from our PGA championship, a tournament of champions or something on that order." If. so, it would meet the approval of the touring pros. "There's no doubt that golf galleries need something more than week-to-week stroke play," said Jack Nlcklaus, who received the Gold Tee award for outstanding contributions to the game at the Metropolitan Golf Writers Association dinner Tuesday night. "I'd like to see it, I'll even go one step further. In addition to a match play title tournament, I think we also should have a national team four-ball championship." The PGA championship was the last major tour event to be played at match play. It shifted to medal play in 1958. "Some of the younger players have never played match play as a pro," said Lionel Hebert. "But I go back to when the PGA was match play. There's a certain: thrill to it that you don't get in 'medal play. I'd certainly like to see a big match play tournament come along."

Cage Stars Decline Bids to Olympics By JIM VAN VALKENBURG Associated Press Sports Writer KANSAS CITY (AP) - Three UCLA stars declined bids to the NCAA's 48-man Olympic Trials basketball squad for scholastic reasons, their spokesman says, and any suggestion they are part of a proposed Negro boycott is pure speculation. The NCAA squad announced Tuesday does include All-Amer- Icans Elvin Hayes of unbeaten, top-ranked Houston and Westley Unseld of Louisville's 9th- ranked Missouri Valley champs, plus most of the nation's major college scoring and rebounding leaders, many of them Negroes. Hayes earlier said he might pass up the Olympics to avoid a late start in pro ball. His collegiate three-year scoring total is second in major college history only to Oscar Robertson of Cincinnati. - The three UCLA stars who declined are 7-foot-I'/a Lew A1-" cindor, also a 1967 Ail-American, Mike Warren and Luclous Allen, all key figures In UCLA's unbeaten run to the NCAA crown last year. Both Alcindor and Allen are juniors. The 48-man squad includes seven juniors, including Creighton's Bob Portman, No. 4 nationally in scoring; and seven sophomores, headed by Pete Maravlch of Louisiana State and Calvin Murphy of Niagara, 1-2 on the national scoring table. An eight-man NCAA committee compiled a list of 145 to 150 players and contacted their schools to determine whether they would accept bids. "The response was most gratifying," said Walter Byers, NCAA executive director. "This is a tremendous squad." No count was made of the number of players who declined consideration, but he said they were few. The squad includes 15 from the NCAA College Division and 33 from the University Division. The coaches for the April 4-5-6 Trials are Ray Meyer of DePaul, Tex Winter of Kansas State, John Bach of Fordham and Arad McCutchan of Evans- vllle.

The Big Eight, which also had a two-way tie, shows Kansas State in the lead but four teams bunched within one game of each other. Arri Texas, which had been the Southwest leader, slipped into a three-way deadlock with Baylor and Texas Christian, While those three leagues were trying to determine their representatives in (he NCAA tournament, two tourney-bound teams were in action Tuesday night. All Top Ten clubs In the Associated Press Poll were Idle. At New York, NCAA-bound St. John's jolted National Invitation Tournament hopeful Holy Cross 83-67 In a sloppily-played game, despite 31 points by the losers' Keith Hochstein. At South Bend, Ind., Bob Am- zen and Bob Whltemore combined for 63 points and led NIT- bound Notre Dame past Valparaiso 87-75. The 6-foot-5 Arnzen scored a season's high 35 points while 6-7 Whitmore had 28 and pushed his tworyear total to 1,023. Three other teams continued their efforts to impress the NIT selection committee. Villanova, with Johnny Jones sinking eight straight shots in the first half and scoring 30 points, edged Toledo 71-69, but almost blew a seven-point lead in the last two minutes in its own field house. Sophomore Chad Calabria, a 6-1 guard, scored llquickpoints as Iowa took a 14-3 lead over Michigan State and rolled to a 76-58 victory at Iowa City. Calabria finished with 25 points and Sam Williams added 22 as the Hawkeyes took a half-game lead over idle Ohio State and a full game over Purdue, which lost to Michigan 104-94. A 52.4 per cent shooting mark and Rick Mount's 35 points were not enough for Purdue. The Boilermakers made only six of 12 J free' i tltfoWs >( while Michigan ' cbn'riecTed "on' 20 • of 31.' 'Rudy Tomjanovich scored 30 points as the Wolverines dedicated their new University Events Arena. Kansas State took over the Big Eight lead by whipping Missouri 70-63, while Kansas bowed to Nebraska 76-69 and Iowa State was Idle. The standings show'Kansas State at 8-3, Iowa State 7-3, Nebraska 8-4 and Kansas 7-4, Steve Honeycutt scored 27 points and 7-1 Nick Pino grabbed 16 rebounds to spark Kansas State past Missouri. The Wildcats are at Iowa State next Monday in a key battle. Stu Lantz scored 22 points as Nebraska dropped Kansas from its share of the lead. But the big surprise was Bob Gratopp, a 6-4 sophomore, who netted 21 points and hauled down 13 rebounds against the taller Jayhawks. The three-way tie in the Southwest's annual rodeo came about when Texas Christian beat Texas 71-65 and Baylor defeated Arkansas 71-64. The three leaders have 8-5 records, Texas A&M missed a chance to make it a four-way deadlock by dropping an 83-81 double overtime game to Texas Tech.

U.S. Olympic Cage Team Dealt a Blow By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The controversy over South Africa's readmlssion to the Summer Olympic Games continued to boll throughout the world today while the U.S. Olympic basketball team suffered a blow of its own — losing four college stars. A move was underway in London to call a special meeting of the International Olympic Committee to reconsider the action of South Africa. In Washington, U.S. foreign affairs officials expressed concern over the move of African nations to boycott the Games, but indicated no U.S. action at present is planned for fear of further complicating what they privately describe as a "mess." At Kansas City, the National Collegiate Athletic Associatioi announced that Lew Alcindor, Lucius Allen and Mike Warren of UCLA had rejected invitations to participate in the Olympic trials. In Los Angeles, Jess Hill, athletic director at Southern California, said Bill Hewitt of the Trojans also had declined an invitation. The four basketball stars are Negroes, but gave "academic" reasons for rejecting the invitations. They said the trials would take them away from school too long. On Monday 32 African nations withdrew from the Games in Mexico City in October as a protest against South Africa's participation. South Africa was barred from'the 1964 Games because of its racial policies, but was readmitted^ this year after promising to send an Integrated team. Gulllio Onesti, president of the Italian Olympic Committee, said Tuesday he had asked Avery Brundage, president of the IOC, to call a special meeting. Brundage said he saw no possibility of a special meeting and the Marquess of Exeter, an influential member of the IOC, agreed with him. "We had exhaustive debates on the ren-entry of South Africa," the Marquess said. "We took a postal vote on the issue and the vote was substantially in favor of South Africa's re*entry, The world would think it very strange if two weeks later we had another meeting to discuss the whole business yet again." elevation onto baseball's superstar pinnacle arc Chicago (left) and St. Louis outfielder Lou Hrock. shown scoring in Hock*y National Hockey League By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Tuesday's Result Boston 5, Pittsburgh 3 Today's Games Montreal at St. Louis Chicago at Toronto Minnesota at Oakland ' Thursday's Games Toronto at Boston New York at Detroit Los Angeles at Philadelphia • Bruins Take Big Step to the Playoffs PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Boston Bruins, who haven't reached the National Hockey League's Stanley Cup playoffs in nine years, have taken another big step toward making it this year. Skip Krake's goal while the Bruins were shorthanded ignited Boston to a 5-3 victory over the expansion Pittsburgh Penguins Tuesday night, t leaving the Bruins with a hefty l'l-point lead on Toronto In the battle for the last playoff spot In the East Division. Pittsburgh, meanwhile, took another step backward in its bid to catch St. Louis for the last playoff position in the West Di« vision.

Trailing Hayes were 7-1 Lew Alcindor of UCLA, with 11 first team votes and one second team, and 6-8 Westley Unseld of Louisville, with 10 firsts and two seconds. All three are repeaters from last year's team. Rounding out the coaches' first team are 6-4 Don May of Dayton and 6-5 Pete Maravich of Louisiana State, the nation's leading scorer and only sophomore on the first unit. Both received five first-team votes. Alcindor Is a junior, the others seniors, Named to the second team were 6-4 senior Larry MiUer of North Carolina, 5-10 sophomore Calvin Murphy of Niagara, 6-3 junior Jo Jo White of Kansas, 611 sophomore Bob Lanier of St. Bonaventure and 6-8 senior Don Smith of Iowa State.

The trick, of course, Is for the players to remind the owners how important those hits and shutouts were last season, and for the owners to get off as cheaply as possible for 1968. Curt Flood and Mickey Mantle headed Tuesday's list of players reaching terms while Cincinnati with Jim Maloney, Vada Pinson and Pete Rose among the dissatisfied, seems to be having the most trouble in the signature derby. Flood, who hit .335 for the world champion St. Louis Cardinals in 1967, signed for $75,000- a figure he described as "a happy medium" between what he was asking for and what .the Cards were offering. -V • "The price was some place in the middle of what we both put up at first," said Flood. Price was never a problem for Mantle, the New York Yankees' veteran slugger. He signed his sixth straight $100, 000 agreement with a pledge to improve on the .245 batting average and 22 home runs he had last year. "I think I can hit 30 home runs," said Mantle. "I don't think that's out of the question. "I can't do any worse than last year," he said. Phil Seghi, Cincinnati's assistant general manager, said he plans no discussion for two or three days with Maloney, Pinson, Rose, Chico Ruiz, Tommy Helms, Mel Queen and the Reds' other non-signees. "This is a period of meditation for them," said Seghi. Clete Boyer m has not yet reached terms with Atlanta and when he does, he'll find the Braves' camp a beehive of .activity. "We'll be out on thefield from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. if necessary," said new manager Luman Harris. "Whatever it takes, we'll use."
