Hope Star SPORTS Celtics and Lakers Post Playoff Wins By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Bill Russell said he didn't have a good game. Jerry West said he hadn't realized he shot so well, Elgin Baylor didn't say a word, Baylor didn't have to. His Coach, Bill van Breda Kolff of the Los Angeles Lakers, said It all after the Lakers downed the Chicago Bulls 109*101 In the opening game of the best-of«7 Western Division playoff series. "I played Baylor all the way because we needed his outside shooting. He was also playing so well, I hated to take him out," Van Breda Kolff said after the game In Los Angeles Sunday night. All Elgin did points, grab 23 chip In with eight assists. West, returning after missing the final three regular season games with a groin Injury, added a game-high 33 points. In the opening game of the Eastern Division playoff In Boston, the Celtics topped Detroit Sunday 123-116 on the fine all- around play of Russell and the scoring of John Havllcek and Larry Siegfried. In playoff action Saturday night, the New York Knicks and St. Louis Hawks each evened their series at 1-1. The Knicks beat the Eastern Division champs, Philadelphia, 128-117 In New York and at St. Louis, the Western Division champion Hawks topped San Francisco, 111-103.

In postseason play at Minnesota, the Muskies defeated Kentucky, 115-102 in the first game of a best-of-5 playoff in the Eastern ByRONSPEER Associated Press Sports Writer PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) Ray Floyd is trying to erase his Image as a golfing playboy, but the 25-year-old Texan still likes to gamble, The chunky bachelor took a was score 32 one-shot lead into today's final rebounds and round of the Pensacola Open Golf Tournament because of a gamble that paid off Sunday. Floyd, who wiped out an eight-stroke deficit with a blazing 64, eagled the eighth hole after driving into the woods. He was 235 yards from the green, but he saw a six-foot opening between the trees and went for the hole with a three-wood. The ball stopped 30 feet from the cup, and Floyd knocked in the putt for an eagle 3 on the par five hole. "I guess It was a good gamble," said Floyd, who turned In a 54-hole total of 202, 14 strokes under par and a shot In front of George Archer and Tony Jack- lln. Tom Shaw, the affable young man who led the first two rounds with scores of 63 and 67, was at 204after a74. Dave Marr, who fired a 68 was tied at 204 with Shaw, victorious since the regular season. Both clubs nasn >t West hit on 13 of 24 shots from the field and a perfect 7-7 at the charity line. "The groin Injury I have is the most aggravating I've ever had. I got tired in the third period and started throwing some sloppy passes but I didn't reltze I had shot so well," Jerry said. Rival Coach, Johnny Kerr of the Bulls said: "We can beat the Lakers because they have gone back to a two-man offense." Russell, critical of his performance said, "It wasn't actually that good a game for me. Normally, in a good game, I'd block more shots and wouldn't get in foul trouble," It was when Russell got into foul trouble that the Celtics found themselves in hot water, Boston had surged to a 68-52 halftime edge with a second-period run of 14 straight points. But when Russell benched himself with four personal fouls for most of the third quarter the Pistons came alive. Dave Blng, the league's top scorer, held to only seven points In the opening half, got hot and along with Terry Dischlnger whittled away at Boston's lead and finally went ahead 93.91 at the end of three quarters. But with Havllcek scoring U of his 25 points and Siegfried seven of his 21 and Celtics stormed back for the victory, Blng topped the Pistons with 30 points. And Player-Coach Russell contributed his 'poor' game total of 15 points, nine assists and 34 rebounds, The playoffs continue tonight with Boston in Detroit, St, Louis at San Francisco and Chicago at Los Angeles, The Hawks face the Warriors on the West Coast again Tuesday and the 76ers and Knieks play Wednesday in Philadelphia, 1965. Prose he's Cars Prove Themselves By F. T. MACFEELY SE BRING, Fla. (AP) Porsche's durable little cars left no room for argument about the finish of Sebring's 12 hours of endurance Saturday. At the awards presentation Sunday, when it became official that Hans Herrmann of Germany and Jo Slffert of Switzerland were the winners in their Porsche prototype, there wasn't even a token protest. Porsche didn't have any competition that could stand up around the clock and the 1-2 finish of the German team was almost a duplication of its 1-2-3 at Daytona Beach seven weeks earlier, In the race for world points, Porsche is far out front with 18 going Into the Brands Hatch race in England next month. Vic Elford of England and Jochen Neerpasch of Germany, who won at Daytona, took second here. The domination of Porsche was clear when a pair of Cama- ros and a Mustang— heavier and clumsier than the sleek racing porsches—finished third, fourth and fifth. They were more than 130 miles behind the winner, Mark Donohue and Craig Fisher drove the third-place Camaro; Joseph Welch and Bob Johnson the fourth placer. Jerry Titus and Ron Bucknum were in the fifth-place Mustang, Next came three Porsche 91 Is -production cars like Mustang and Camaro-and a little MG, Winners Herrmann and Slffert covered 1,232,4 miles at an average speed of 102,513 miles an hour, «I» W.-T, —, The National Education Association is the world's largest professional organization, SOLUNAR TABUS Py RICHARD ALPE.N KNIGHT , The schedule of Solunar Periods, as printed below, has been taken from Richard Alden Knight's SOLUNAR TABLES Plan your days §o that you will be fishing in good territor: or hunting in food cover during these times, if you wish to f|n4 the best sport that each day has to offer.

The f./oot-lVi Alcindor scored 53 points and hauled down 34 rebounds in the two games. He is the fourth player in history to be Voted the honor two years in succession, The others are Bob Rutland, Oklahoma State, 1945-46; Alex Groza, Kentucky, 194 8-49) and Lerry Lucas, Ohio State, 1960-61, Three other Bruins were named to the aJMoiirnatmmt team. With Alcindor on the select five were Mike Warren, Lucius Allen and Lynn Shackelford, The fifth man was North Carolina's Larry Miller. Player of the year Elvln Hayes of Houston failed to make it. Shackelford was accorded the honor on the basis of his 17 points and great defensive play In the victory over Houston. Allen and Warren set the tempo of the game early in the finale. Allen wound up with 30 points for the two games and was all over the court against the Tar Heels, stealing passes on the Bruins' full court zone press. Warren was the court general, guiding the offense and keeping North Carolina's fine sophomore Charlie Scott fairly well bottled up. But Alcindor was the real story. He tossed in 34 points. He blocked nine Tar Heel shots, five of them off the hand of G- foot-10 Rusty Clark. And Lew even stole the ball at mldcourt and dribbled in to score a crowd-raiser early in the second half. "They are by far the greatest basketball team I've ever seen," North Carolina coach Dean Smith said. And most of them will be back (l.llli.V»-| I r MTllril Itl •< I f,.Hl:<: next-year...,, /•.,,, ., , t .,. ,. "We are going to have a fine team," UCLA coach John Wooden said. "I hope we will be back to defend our title. I wouldn't trade our chances with anyone." In the game for third place, fired up Ohio State came from behind In the second half to beat Houston, 89-85, as burly Steve Howell scored 26 points. Colonels Lose Gome fo Huskies By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Kentucky Colonels learned last weekend the difference between a bad court and a good court might be the difference between getting in the American Basketball Association playoffs and staying in. The New Jersey Americans, their armory in Teaneck, N.J., filled by a circus, came up with a bad court in Com mack, N.Y., for their extra game against Kentucky Saturday night to decide the final Eastern Division playoff berth. The teams took a look at the court, decided they couldn't play and ABA commis« sioner forfeited the game to the Colonels. But Minnesota provided a good court In Minneapolis Sunday and then ran the Colonels off it In the last quarter for a U 5-102 victory In the first game of the playoffs, The Muskies, who finished second in the division, broke an 89*all tie on Mel Daniels' basket en route to a 30»13 spree that sent them Into the lead In the best-of.5 series, Kentucky, trailing 7i»57, had taken an 89*85 lead before Minnesota spurtedt Daniels finished with a elub record 44 points, including 14 to the final quarts Parti Carrier had 39 points for Kentucky, which tied NOW Jersey for fourth in the division* in the final reguir season game, Anaheim outseored Oak» 1^ 147*135 in Anaheim, Les Sejygge collected 35 points fe>r the Amigos, tils season's high,, Giry Bradds was high for m Oiks with 38.

Associated Press Sports Writer This is the kind of exhibition baseball season It's been for Manager Bill Rigney- about the only King he's had to comment on lately is what pitcher has looked best in shutting out his California Angels. So far, it's been San Francisco southpaw Ray Sadecki. "That's the best we've seen this spring," Rigney said of Sadecki's pitching Sunday in the Giants' 4-0 victory over the Angels, who have been blanked in three of their last four games. ;-?*• "I can see why they were excited about him last year," Rig-'' ney said after Sadecki scattered four hits over nine Innings. "He must have pitched that way toward the end of the season." Sadecki finished strongly for a; 12-6 record In 1967. Three of San Francisco's runs Sunday came on Willie Mc^ Covey's homer off George Bru- ( ; net In the fourth Inning.

"We had the worst reCdfd In the tournament," said Flyer Coach Don Donoher, "and we had to sweat It out getting into the field, We had to win the last of the season," The Flyers, who won their last 10 regular season basketball games for a 17-9 record, stretched the string to 14 Saturday by beating Kansas 61*48 for the NIT championship. Last year, the Flyers surprisingly finished second to UCLA in the NCAA tournament that UCLA won again Saturday night in Los Angeles. The Bruins clobbered North Carolina 78-85 as Lew Alctndor scored 34 points. Ohio State upset Houston 89-85 for third place. With sparkling Don May and three other starters back, Dayton was poised for another great year. "When we were 7-9 In January," Donoher said, "I thought we needed a new coach, although seven of those defeats were by less than six points. This team definitely was as good as last year's team." But everything seemed to fall into place in Dayton's last loss, at Louisville, Jan. 23. "We were down by 16 when we started Dan Obrovac at center the second half, and lost by one," Donoher said, "Obrovac was a new kid after that. We're bigger and stronger at center with him than we were last year. May, who won the Most Valuable Player award,,hit 17 of his 22 points In the 'second half when the Flyers broke a 25-all halftlmo tie and.pulled away to their second NIT title In 12 tries. Dayton won In its last appearance in 1962 after five second place finishes. May, a 6-foot-4 second-team All-American, who became Dayton's all-tlmo high scorer In the also topped All ., .

While Sadecki was making a baseball look like a marble to the Angels, It continued to appear the size of a grapefruit to Sal Bando and Don Pavletlch. Bando hit his eighth homer of the spring for Oakland, and Pavletlch belted his fourth and Ofth for Cincinnati. The two-run shot by Bando, who didn't hit any homers In 47 games with the Athletics last year, couldn't compensate for a sour fielding performance by his teammates. They committed four errors, two in the seventh Inning when Houston scored five runs. P lace •* § i nOZOi DOCKS ^ KAflf Af| fJI/ WwifiWH iij §?—-,* T^ COS I 16X05 MARSHALL, Tex.
