Monbouquette out to top 20 victories By United Press International Bill Monbouquette's smile of satisfaction today is a warning to American League rivals that the Boston Red Sox pitcher means it when he says he'll improve on his 20 victories of 1963. A hard man to please, Mon­ bouquette says he wasn't as good pitcher in 1963 as he was when he had marks of 14-14 and 15-13 in 1961 and 1952 respectively. And he's been saying aU spring that he'll make 1964 the best season he's ever had in the majors. The Cleveland Indians are inclined to beUeve him after Monbouquette's six innings of three-hit, shutout pitching in Monday's 54 victory by the Red Sox at Tucson, Ariz. Mon bouquette is now • one of the most advanced pitchers on eith er the Grapefruit or Cactus circuit and obviously is being groomed to open the AL season for the Red Sox. Took Big Lead The Red Sox gave their star pitcher a big cushion when they scored four runs in the fifth inning on singles by Dalton Jones and Jerry Dorsch and doubles by Tony Conigliaro and Tony Horton. It was only the Red Sox' second win in nine exhibition games. At Vero Beach, Fla., meanwhile, base-stealing champion Maury Wills of the world champion Los Angeles Dodgers predicted that be may win the National League batting title this year. "Some day I'm going to win the batting tiUe," said WiUs, who hit .302 last season, "and this could be the year."

His top bullpen men will be llittle Bobby Shantz, the left bander, and Ron Taylor, the right hander. That leaves the veteran Lew Burdette for long relief and spot starting assign ments.

(UPI) Paul Valenti, for 17 seasons assistant to Slats Gill at Oregon State, will move into Gill's job as bead basketball coach of the Beavers next July 1. Gill, 62, has announced he will quit his job at that time to become athletic director in place of the retiring R. S. "Spec" Keane. Valenti, 43. was a former star guard at Oregon State who came here from Larkspur, Calif. He became an assistant to Gill in 1947 after scr\'ice during World War II in the Navy. "It is a great honor to be given the opportunity to be head basketball coach," Valenti said. "This offers a great challenge to carry on the fine tradition built by Slats Gill over these many years." Gill compiled a 599-332 record in his 36 seasons and had a 25-4 record this year in piloting his Beavers to a national fifth ranking.

Wooden shies awoy from predictions on playoff LOS ANGELES (UPI)-Coach John Wooden of unbeaten UCLA [shied away today from any predictions about how his team would fare in the NCAA championship playoffs, except to say both his squad and first round opponent Kansas State have improved over their first meeting. Jnst what that could be interpreted to mean was open for speculation here and in Kansas I City where the Bruins meet Kansas State Friday night The winner of that game plays the victor of a contest between Michigan and Duke for the NCAA championship. UCL.^ already has cinched the mj-thical national crown as determined by the nation's basketball coaches in the UPI poll. I But there's no doubt of the importance placed on the NCAA playoffs, the World Series of collegiate basketbal. When the Bruins met Kansas State earlier, they won, 78-75. "Kansas State is much stronger Inow," he said, Imt he conceded his squad also was better after posting its 2Sth win in a row last wedc in the regional finals over University of San Fran Cisco. Both USF and SeatUe. the team beaten in the first ronad by UCL.A, drew Wooden's com­ mendation. Southwest league HOUSTON (UPI)—The Uni versity of Houston, rejected^ in its last try to join the Southwest Conference, said Monday I it will try again. The strong independent, which has been fully state supported .less than a year, is the second [largest university in the state, behind the University of Texas at Austin. The Houston Board of Regents announced Monday they will pursue membership in the conference "at the earhest practicable date." The quickest the conference could fake up their plea would be in its spring meeting, scheduled in Jlay. But some Houston officials said they believe the matter will not come up before the winter meeting of the SWC in November. Houston will need a conference school to sponsor it before the SWC and will need six votes of the eight schools to be accepted. Currently, the conference includes Texas, Texas AiM, Texas Tech, Southern Methodist, Baylor, Rice (also in Houston), Texas ChrisUan and Arkansas. Baylor sponsored Houston last time. Last Ume Housfon tried to join the conference, in 1956, Texas Tech beat it to the punch. After Tech was accepted, the conference believed it needed five years to adjust the sjx)rts schedules accordhlgly, leaving Houston no chance for five years. Then, in 1961, Houston had turned to a bigger problem —trying to get full state sup [port. The school concentrated its energies to that goal, and the state legislature voted it into the state school sysem effec tive last September. It has an enrollment of around 17,000 and its new financial status has boosted it into a new [era of growth. Its campus is located in sontbeasf Houston, a few miles from downtown. Rookie goafie leads with three shutouts By United Press Inlcmetienel When Portland's rookie goahe Dave Kelly turned m three consecutive shutouts last week, he tidied up the league record book considerably. Twenty different net-mioders shared the previous record of two consecutive shutouts and now Kelly rules all alone. He also far surpassed the shutout record of 183 minutes and 34 seconds set by Victoria s Jerry Cotnoir during the 1950-.S1 season. KelJy boosted the mark to 235 minutes and 12 seconds of shutout hockey. Along with every goalie category, there is another in thei record book for rookie goahes Kelly also set aU these with &is hot streak so that the league celebrated St Patrick's Day by proclaiming Kelly tlie record holder in four different cate gories. Kelly's three shutouts also gave' the Buckaroos the team record for the longest shutout sequence. Previously, eight different teams had held the opposition scoreless for two consecutive games. Meanwhile, other league statistics showed Guyle Fielder of Seattle continuing his waltz to another Western Hockey League scoring title. Fielder has parlayed 16 goals and a league-leading 83 assists hito 99 points. Norm Johnson of Los Angeles is leading in a ding-dong battle for second. He has 84 points. Art Jones of Portland 83, Lou Jankowski of Denver 82 and Phil Maloney of Vancouver 81. Jankowski leads in goals with 36, while Portland's Mike Donaldson has spent 189 minutes in the penalty box to lead that department The Western Hockey League enters its final week of play tonight when first place Denver plays at last place Vancouver. ITie fight for the playoff spots still has not been quite decided with Portland in second at 70 points with three games to go; Los Angeles in third with 68 points and two to go; San Francisco at 65 with three to go; and Seattle in fourth with 62 and four to go.

(UPI) —Officials today investigated the cause of death of a 15-year- old boy who collapsed shortly after the start of a cross-country track meet between three high schools. The boy, Eddie Martm, was a sophomore at St Joseph's Academy here. Burt Lewis, coach of the Florida school for the deaf and blind where the race was nm massaged the boy's chest until an ambulance arrived to rush him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead Monday afternoon. Martin fell after he had covered 300 to 40O yards or the 2.5 mile cross country course laid out over the deaf and blind school campus. to the New York state treasury after that date. Redlands Daily Facts TiKS^ March 17,19A4-13 76ers spoil WaiTiors plans for celebration By United Press Intematianal San Francisco's victory champagne remamed corked and iced today after the pesky Philadelphia 76ers spoiled the Warriors' plans to put away their first Western Division championship in the National Basketball Association. Hal Greer's foul shot in the final second of play gave Philadelphia a dramatic HI -110 come-from-behind victory over the Warriors Monday night. It was the only I'lBA game scheduled Monday night A victory 'would have given the Warriors the division title. Now they must wait for second- place St. Louis to lose one. of its two remaining games to Detroit or for the 76ers to return to San Francisco Wednesday for the final NBA game of the season. San Francisco started with a rush Monday night and there seemed little doubt the champagne corks would be popping in the Warriors' dressing room after the game. The Warriors led throughout and with five mmutes left to play held a commanding 101-89 advantage. But then Greer, who led all scorers with 34 points, and his teammates cauglit fire and narrowed San Francisco's lead to four points with three minutes remaining. The Warriors held a 108-103 lead with 60 seconds left but could manage only two free throws in the final minute. The 76ers pulled even on baskets by Ben Wariey and Chet Walker and foul shots by Greer and Johnny Kerr. Then, with the score knotted at 110-110, Wilt Chamberlain drew a technical foul and Greer calmly made the winning free throw with the clock showing just one second to play. Chamberlam topped the Warriors in scoring with 30 points. NOW YOU KNOW St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, in his work is more closely identified with the north of Ireland than with the south, according to the Encyclopaedia Brittanica. Rodriguez admits be steals style By JACK CUDDY UPI Sperh Writar NEW YORK (UPI) - "Is it [an Irish siev/l" A sports writer asked ex-welterweight champion Luis Rodriguez on this St. Patrick's day. 'I don' know—" admitted the banaca-nosed Cuban from Miami Beach. [ Then he. explamed, "I put a little bit of everything into it. and just call it a biff stew. Get it? Biff--. Biff! Biff! Biff! Stew." "Oh—no~!" groaned the writer. "But go ahead. You put a little bit of everything into your boxing style — and so you .call it a beef stew style. Where |do you get an those things you put in?" Rodriqnez, who fights middle- I weight Holley Mims in a na- {tionaHy televised 10-rounder at Madison Square Garden Friday night, confessed that he steals I the ingredients from the styles I of other fighters he watches in gymnasiums and on television. "I take only the best" grinned the amiable Luis, who speaks English surprisingly weU. "So my style—she's got the best of everything. So-I'm all round' great boxer-fighter. If I meet the slick boxer, I slug and knock him out If I meet the slugger, I box and outpoint hira-easy." The reporter, studying Luis across the restaurant table, asked why his biff stew had failed him last June 8 at the Garden, where he lost the welter crown back to Emile Griffith of New York on a split de- dsion. Luis countered with the statement that two of the ring officials had given Griffith a home-town decision that night, although a poll of ringside writers had favored Luis 18 to 7. There will be a different story next June 12, at Las Vegas, Nev., Rodriguez assured. when he and Griffith meet in there third title figbt "The officials won't be aKe to save him at Las Vegas," the ex-champ assured, "because I'll give him a real whipping this Ume — add get back the title." Meanwhile, Luis explained, be is fighting middleweight Mims at the Garden Friday to keep sharp, and he may take on one or two more middleweights before June. In his first fight of 1964, Friday, Rodriguez is going in as a substitute agamst veteran Mims. He is substituting for Joey Archer of New York; the second ranked middleweight contender who suffered a gashed right brow in traming. 'I've fought Other middleweights and did well against them," explained the Cuban refugee. "And after I win back the welterweight title, ni defend it a couple of Umes and then shoot for the middleweight crown. I can weigh 151 or 152 pounds and beat any middleweight, I think." When Luis faces champion Griffith at Las Vegas, they will be fighting for the fourth time. Emile outpomted Luis in a non- aUe bout at New York in 1960. Rodriguez won the title on a unanimous decision over Griffith at Los Angeles, March 21, 1963, and lost it back to Griffith in June. Concerning Friday's fight with Mims, Luis said he imder- stands the lanky middleweight from Washington, D.C., is a "rope speciaUst" who likes to stand with his back against the ^ropes and let opponents come in to him so that he can beat them at close quarters with body punches and uppercuts. 'When I finish with him he'U wish he never saw a rope," Luis predicted. "Because I'm the best close-quarter fighter in the welteweight or middle- Iwdght divisions." Although he's a substitute, Rodriguez is favored at 3-1. THE DEPENDABLES: SUCCESS CARS OF '64 When it comes (ocanvwtiMgs, Dodfi has 'em... in spedes. These are just tw of thm. The «8irence$?
