Gdlesburi i$t«r«MdiL Gdlesburj • Mike Owens, a onetime all* stater at Galesburg High School, was officially named as Silver Streak cage coach at a District 205 board meeting Monday night. The recommendation to ap^ point Owens as varsity basketball coach was made by Barney Parker, superintendent of schools, and unanimously approved by a board vote of 7-0 at last night's session. Owens, who served as assistant basketball coach at GHS this school year, succeeds John Thiel. The veteran Streak men- "My recommendation of Mr. Owens comes with considerable pride and confMence — confidence in knowing that I am recommending a man who radiates strength of character and integrity and confidence that his tor and nounced athletic director an- in October that he Mike Owen would step down from the cage post. personal background will accord him outstanding preparation for this assignment," t^arker said in a statement to the board. "He knows the town and the people and he has made a significant decision to return to the Galesburg schools, to purpctu- ate our athletic program and continue to uphold our proud athletic tradition," Parker added. Owens was an all-stater for Galesburg under Tliiel in the 1955^56 season and played on the team that lost in a sudden death overtime to Rockford West in supersectional play. The Rockford team went on to win its second straight state title that year. He was a standout player at Bradley University where he led the Braves to the NIT championship and was on the all-tournament team. After graduating from Bradley, Mike was head basketball coach at Limestone High School for three years and then spent five years as head cage coach at Wheeling High School in Arlington Heights. Before coming to Galesburg he was assistant varsity basketball coach at Northwestern University for three years.

Houston will be trying to advance to the semifinals of the World Hockey Association playoffs against Bobby Hull and the Winnipeg Jets. The Aeroes bold a 3-2 edge over the Los Angeles Sharks in their opening best-of-seven series after winning the fifth game, 6-3, Sunday night at Houston. If the Sharks prevail tonight, the teams will play the seventh game Thursday night at Houston. If Houston wins, it moves to the senufinals against favored Winnipeg. In the Sunday night game, Los Angeles outshot the Aeros, 41-27, and Sharks' coach Terry Slater said; "It's a problem we've had all year. We can't put the puck into the net. We outshot them but we had even more good chances. We must have missed the net on 15 or 20 shots. "They have some guys who can put the puck in the net. We can't." The New England Whalers play the Cleveland Crusaders in the other WHA semifinal, beginning Wednesday night at Boston.

These games were origionally supposed to be played at Coe in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, but because of the April snowstorm were moved to Monmouth. Monmouth's lack of timely hitting, bad fielding, and mistakes in base running enabled Coe to win both games of the doubleheader. Coe won the first game 4-2 and the second game 5-4. Jack Hode was against Dan Strellner in the first game. Hode pitched a good ball game, giving up only four hits but four Monmouth errors and several walks on Hode's part cost Monmouth the ball game. Coe got one run in the top of the first as Bob Thonn walked, was wild pitched to second and scored on a hit and run grounder that was booted by Monmouth shortstop Mike Cripe. Monmouth got their two runs in the bottom of the first. Bill Seiple was safe on an error and Al Sheperd walked. Steve Rueckert struck out but both runners moved up on a past bait. After Bill Wagner struck out, Tom Satterly was safe on an error to score the first run and Dennis Plummer singled in the second run. Coe tied the game in the fourth. Strellner was safe on an error, moved to third on a single by Harris and scored as Kleinhans hit into a fielder's choice. Coe's deciding runs came in the fifth. Steele was safe on an error by Sheppard. He m;>ved to second on Thonn's bunt who was also safe when Hode's throw pulled Plummer off the base. John Moore singled in the first run and Lala was walked to load the bases. Strelhier hit into a fielder's chwce to score the second run. Hode, while losing, only gave up four hits. He struck out five and walked four. StreUner, the ace of the Coe staff, struck out seven and walked two in pitching a 2-^hitter for the victory. Second game pitchers were Kerry Bahnick tyt Monmouth and Dave McCuHa for Coe. Coe got two in the first on singles by Steele and Lala. Strellner walked to load the bases, and Harris th runners in. Saturday the pressure become almost unbearable.

The Wood is the last pre- Derby test for Secretariat, and de^ite the presence of Santa Anita Derby winner Sham, there is little doubt THircotte's colt will go off odds-on, as he did when winning the Gotham at a mile a couple of weeks back to return 12.40. In his first Bay Shore, the prfce was exsetly the same. It was after the seven^furteng Bay Shore that tu«»tte, althoitgh winning, found \Aim\t second-guessed to a lire-thee well. Coming from beWnd, Ron saw an opening inside, and rushed for it. The horse on the rail began lugging in» and the gap was closirfg ominously when "I just tapped him ton the shouWer," Ron recalls. Secretariat lunged forward and the trap closed safely behind him, as he went on to win by four and a half lengths. "I know a lot of people. experts, Tureotte, if want," said I should you "thought have gone wide In the first place, or taken up when I saw the gap closing.

And make it and III single brought Coe got a run in the second on a single, a hit batsman, and aj single to jump out to a 3-0 lead. Monmouth tied the game in the bottom of the third. A single by Bahnick, a single by Seiple, a walk to Shepherd to load the bases, and a fielder's choice by Rueckert brought the first run in. The second scored as Wagner was safe on an error, and the third swred on a single by Tom Satterly. Monmouth went out in front in the fifth on a single by Wagner, a passed hall and a double by Satterly accounting for the run. Coe won the game in the top of the sixth on a walk to Skrips- ly, a sacrifice by McCulla, a walk to Thonn and a single by Lala to center which got by Shepherd and allowed both runs to score. Bahnick ^nd McCuHa each gave up 10 hits but the four Monmouth errors were once again the difference in the game.

The Siwash will travel to Evanston Wednesday to meet the Wildcats of Northwestern then will enjoy a short breather before challenging Grinnell and Joliet Prison Saturday and Sunday will begin at 1 p.m. at Knox. The five ganries in five days will prove the most severe test for the Knox pitching corps so far this season, but Siwash coach Bucky Swlse does not foresee any major problems. Scheduling his two top pitchers for Northwestern, seniors Jun Fennema tod Kelly Cohoon, Swise said he will go with seniors Tom Kotz and Bob Prout agamst Midwest Conference opponent Grinnell. "We'll get a good chance to work our entire pitchmg staff this week," was the way Swise-viewed the situation. ^ Grinnell, although not figured to challenge Coe or Cornell colleges for the Iowa state championship of the MWC, owns a reputation for spoiUng other top contenders' chances with unexpected upsets. The Pioneers victimized the Siwash several years ago, when they wrecked a promisuig season with a wm which kept Knox one game out of first place. One loss to Grm- nell would prove equally disastrous this year. Against Northwestern Knox will see the best baseball that their schedule allows. The Si­ wash, however, split two 5-4 decisions with the Wildcats last year. Swise views the single game against Joliet State Penitentiary Easter Sunday as a particularly rewarding experience for his players. The nme-mning affair will take place behind closed doors with no spectators allowed. you stick to it. Right, Bobby?" Tureotte asked Bobby Ussery who happened to be wandering by. "You had committed yourself," Ussery said. "Once you db that, you can't change your mind. If you take up, you might get clipped from behind. If you don't and have to go wide, maybe you get whipped. But you must make the decision and you can't second guess yourself when you're going 3540 miles an hour on a horse." "Right," said Tureotte. "That's not a wheel you have in your hands, you know." Tureotte does not hide his re$entmenU although he expresses it mildly, about those who question his riding strategy or tactics. '*We plan a race, (trainer Tur- Lucien) race, Laurin and I," cotte said, "but there are plans for all the other horses in the race too. When the gates open, it's me and me alone. Our plan can go dead because of something another horse does, maybe a stumble by someone, maybe by my horse. Iheii it's strictly up to me. I've ridden some pretty good ones^ you know, ai^d I think I've done pretty well with them." Indeed he has. Over the years since his first winner in Canada Sam Mangieri and Bill Cox j in April of 1962, Tureotte has ridden such standouts as Crafty Cox • n Mangieri, Have Week's Best Rounds By IRA BERKOW NEA Sports Editor NEW YORK (NEA) - When Bobby Fischer, a man of prodigiously solitary affairs, entered Madison Square Garden to watch his first New York Knick basketball game, he nearly bolted. The crowd's roar was convulsive. There were nearly 20,000 people in the massive wildly lighted arena. Fischer may have felt he was being thrown to the lions. "Are they dangerous?" he asked a friend seriously, as he shrinkingly looked over the fans. The effect is different to different folks. The cheer frmi the endlessly elevating stands makes the blood of Walt Frazier "jingle." He receives an injec- Frazier sKps in. Frazier gambles by leaving his man. Gamble tion of inspiration. The Knicks* magic is a marvel to watch, like the spangled bal- terina on the galtoping horse in the Ringling Brothers circus which is now using the Garden when the Knicks are not. In the first playoff series, the Knicks beat the Baltimore Bullets with powerful art. They played team ddense, funneling and trapping and double-teanv- ing and floatmg and switching textbook terms, yes, but watch: The Bullets' Archie Clark, a great man for switchljjg a dribble Ixom his right hand to his left, does it sweetly as his defensive man, Earl Monroe goes rii^t with the first fake. However, as the ball goes toward Clark's left hand, Walt won. Frazier takes ball, scores. On offense, the Knicks don't even have to take a dribble. They move the ball around like pranksters tossing a poor victim's hat. The Bullets spin in a quandary. The ball ends up in an open Knick's hands under the basket. The coach. Red Holzman, must get much credit. He took over a team in December of 1967 that had potential but had not demonstrated it yet. Two seasons later they were world champs. How did he do it? Holzman is a staunch fundamentalist who grew up in the Bible beh of basketbaU Brooklyn. He was an old pro with the Rochester Royals. He recently wrote a book with Leonard Lewin entitled "Holzman's Basketball: Winning Strategy and Tactics" (MacmiUan,$6.95). Other than the wthodox advice of hard work and clean living, he says of defense: "We pressure teams into bad shots. We steal the ball by tunneling the offense into trap situations « « • of I nsu ra nee ?

We believe that a team should create srjtne offense." In explanation of the elegance of the Knick offense, Holzman says prosaicly: "I put the entire emphasis on the involvement of five men ... We did not want to build a team around one player and, therefore, enable the defense to close in at any critical point." Enough on familial cohesion. One of the glories of basketball is that individual performers can be appreciated so easily. First, because they can be seen so informally: They do in fact run around in their lingerie. Second, there is no bottleneck of arms and \egs such as in football line-play that obscures the viewing: An Earl "The Pearl" Monroe makes a behind-the-back dribble, soars into the air, switches the ball from one hand to the other, decides to hang there for a couple of minutes, then double-pumps, hooks. You may not know how he did it, but at least you saw it. Or thought you did. These are the parts of the Knicks that help make up the whole: Willis Reed, the center who has the sad-looking intensity ofi a Buddha. He has made a di*a-i matic return after suffering a severe hip injury. Forward Dave DeBusschere, whom they call "Buff" for buffalo, since he is so determined a monolith; and forward BiU Bradley, who is in perpetual, but purposeful motion — he is the Paavo Nurmi of basketball. Walt Frazier at one guard, who plays like silk in his Knick underwear. Primary subs: "small" Qean Meminger, a 6-footer who has made it, incredibly, with inside shgts — his outside shot takes off like a rocket-launch without oisy lauiiCh, but with a destination; and odd Phil Jackson, 6-9, who always runs into himself but somehow makes a basket since shot the top rounds of the week at Bunker Links with 72 and 73> respectively. TTiree eagles were recorded durmg the week. John Smith had an eagle two on hole No. 18, while Chuck Thurman posted an eagle three on No. 6 and Tom Mead did the same on No. 10. In the Dew Dusters league, Glenn Thurman, Dick Berry, Bob filevins, Mel Bocox and Dennis Wiedenhamer shot a best ball score of 65. Sparky Carr, Larry Barrowman, Bob Weber, Bill Frome Lace, Northern Dancer, Tom Rolfe, Shuvee, Damascus, Fort Marcy—and last year's Triple Crown bidder, Riva Ridge. Tureotte took the Derby with Riva, then trailed Bee Bee Bee, a 19-1 shot in the slop of the Preakness. But Tureotte took Riva Ridge to a smashing win in the Belmont. Now it's Secretariat's turn to try for the Triple, with the Wood his final tuneup before what hasn't been a destination; and Jerry Lucas who shoots the same rocket-'plumbing wizardry. the ball bounces off an opponent's nose. And of course, the other starting guard, Monroe. He was asked after one Baltimore game if, when he is burning so, he just knows that whatever he shoots up will go in. "A few times today I was fooled," he replied. That the ball didn't go in or did go in? "Both," he said.
