Run, baby, run," Don Kennedy's simple formula was written in chalk on a small blackboard in the St, Peter's dressing room. Before Monday night's quarter-finals of the National Invitation Basketball tournament were over, it was imprinted in the tired legs of the Duke Blue Devils, the minds of an awed record crowd of 19,500 and certainly in the thoughts of the Kansas Jayhawks. Kennedy's Peacocks followed his writings to the letter, exploding In all directions at the opening tipoff and stampeding the lOth-ranked Blue Devils 10071 with sharp-shooting, deft ball-handling and speed, speed, By speed. The display, one of the most devastating in NIT history, was witnessed by Kansas, whose slow deliberate style caught Villanova in a deep freeze 55-49 in the first game. Thus the Jay- hawks got some idea of what they must stop when St. Peter's fuels up for them in the semifinals Thursday night. The other semifinallstswillbe determined tonight when powerful Dayton takes on underdog Fordham and Long Island U. and Notre Dame clash. St. Peter's, now 24-2, which upset Marshall in the first round, wasted little time making believers of big, slow, huffing and puffing Duke, the top- seeded team. The Peacocks burst out of the starting blocks and in almost the time It took to play the National Anthem, they had a 15-3 lead. It was all donwhill from there as the tiny Naw Jersey school stepped boldly into the national spotlight. "Last week they made fun of us," said ; Elanrdo Webster, the 6-foot-5lSliest starter who hit 51 points against Marshall and 29 against Duke, including 21 in the first half that ended with the Peacocks ahead 50-29. "No one knew where St. Peter's was—now they know."

The threatened boycott of some 40-plus nations protesting the admission of South Africa has thrown a cloud over the country's organization efforts but hasn't throttled them. "There are no plans for can- celling the Games," insists Pedro Ramirez Vazquez, chairman of the Mexican Organizing Committee.

A breakdown in the bullpen is blamed for the Tigers' failure to win it all last season. "Our bullpen wasn't that bad," said Smith. "Everything that happened In the last two days was magnified. Fred Gladding, Mike Marshall and Fred Lasher all did a job for us, but we never had one guy who could do it day after day."

Dennis Ribant has been acquired from Pittsburgh in a deal for Dave Wlckersham, "My four starters are Earl Wilson, Joe Sparma, Denny Me Lain and Mickey Lolich," said Smith, "John Hiller will re- lleve and do spot starting."

New Orleans Rider Hopes For Big Time By JOHN S.LANG Associated Press Writer NEW ORLEANS '(AP)-The worst loser in the world grinned, look another huge chomp on a candy bar and explained in a slow Texas drawl why he had been the winningest jockey at every track he had raced the past year, "I'm greedy," said David Whited. "I'm a terrible loser, the worst in the world. And I'm jumping on every horse I can get." Whited was the leading jockey at the Fairgrounds with 49 winners, 37 second and 24 third place finishers as of the season's 55th day. He maintained a victory margin over the next ranked jockey despite being suspended 10 days for rough riding and lodging a foul claim deemed frivolous. But his impressive record wasn't made easily. One thousand, two hundred times in the past eight months Whiled mounted a horse and whipped it around a track with all his skill. He crossed under the wire in front 300 times. Before the season started here, Whited rode 1 18 winner's in 80 days at Detroit for a track' record, He set a record at Omaha with 52 wins in 40; days' and 'wasHeadmg jodkey *at° Grand Island, Neb.V with 28 firsts in 14 days. ; "Yeah," says Whited, "this is my bid for the big time. This track, you might say, is my stepping stone to the big time— maybe." The career of Whited, now 25, goes back lo when he was growing up in Texas, where horse race betting is illegal.

The two teams are scheduled to play today and Wednesday. favor or Whited. For instance, the cab driver who recently drove a passenger to the track: "Hell, I didn't want a fare out here today. I'll probably stay and bet all my money. You know about Whited? He had three straight winners Saturday. I think I'll just stay out here and bet right through on Whited." Whited's first race of the day was for 2-year-olds. One tout didn't think Whited's horse was a good bet. "That's a baby race," he mumbled around his cigar. "I wouldn't bet Whited with counterfeit money, and the jock's all you can bet 'cause you don't know anything about the horse. He's no good on 2-year-olds." Whited won going away by several lengths. A few minutes later in the jockey^' lounge: jj "Congratulations, 'Dave." ',,, , "Oh, did you bet me? Good. See, I'm happy, everybody's happy. Everybody except that jockey over there. He's not happy. He rode my horse last week, but he got bumped. I've been in that position. It's a cutthroat business." Whited finished out of the money in his next race. He was quiet and fidgity afterward. 1 told you I was a bad loser. kid riding a motorcycle, except of Did you hear them boo me? I concourse I got paid for it. My people t ro | my temper now because I'm were farm people around Fort older. You have to be careful, you Worth and we had a lot of horses around. "Then I didn't know what a jockey was supposed to do. I thought you just went and rode down the cotton patch on Sunday. I just weighed 35 pounds—not strong enough to do anything with a horse but hold on. "I can pull one up now, but I learned that a horse has a mind of its own, and you don't handle a can ruin yourself with temper. I control it better now and it makes a difference jn the money I make, the friends I keep and the races I win; "You know," he starts laughing, "when I'm off and go to the tracks and lose, I boo, too. 1 never boo the jocks, but I boo. "It's being greedy but I hate to go a .day without winning a race. Whited has a theory that a horse race is 100 per cent the efforts of the horse and maybe un extra one per cent the skill of the jockey, Handicappersat the Fairgrounds, however, are playing the odds in miss a day, thinks you're in a slump." Whited plunks down a dime for another candy bar, notes happily that he has no weight problem at 5-foot-3and 115 pounds. Orioles Aro Having a Bad By RON RAPOPO RT Associated Press Sports Writer If a bad spring means a good season, the Baltimore Orioles have the American League pennant wrapped up. l The Orioles haven't exactly been tearing the Grapefruit League apart in the opening phases of the baseball exhibition season, but at least they haven't been afraid to get up In the morning. Until today. Monday, the club made a routine flight from Miami Fla., to Sarasota, Fla., for a game with the Chicago White Sox. At least it was as routine as a flight can be after the pilot announces that an engine has been shut off. Conversation was at an understandable minimum until the* plane landed and, of course, the Orioles preceded to get beaten by the White Sox 5-1. Their record now is 3-5. In other games, Pittsburgh beat Detroit 7-2, Cincinnati took the New York Mets 5-2, Houston beat Oakland 6-4 in 11 innings.
