Bill Russell leads Celtics to victoiy BOSTON (UPI) — Bis BUI Russell didn't say a word when Cincinnati's Oscar Robertson was named iiis successor as the National Basketball Association's most valuable player. Russell even forgot about his talk of retirement Instead, the hulking center of the six-time champion Boston Celtics led his team to a one-game lead, 103-87 over the Cincinnati Royals in their best-of-seven Eastern Division final series. NBA playoff action moves clear across the nation tonight when the St. Louis Hawks move into San Francisco to launch their best-of-seven West- em Division series. Russell's boss, NBA coacliing dean Red Auerbach, had only one word for his 6-foot, 9-inch star: "Fantastic." The veteran Boston pivot tossed in 18 points, hauled donn 31 rebounds, and even collected a pair of assists while plaj-ing 46 minutes Tuesday night. Unfortunately, NBA statisticians don't keep records 'on blocked shots. But Russell time and again delighted a 13,909 ca pacity. Boston Garden crowd in this respect. He left them with the abiding memory of a seem ingly endless arm slapping bas ketballs back into the faces of Cincinnati shooters. Robertson, whose most valu able player selection broke a string of three straight Russell choices, didn't have a basket for the first 11 minutes of the game. He wound up with 20 points, seven rebounds and three assists while playing 44 minutes. For the record, he averaged 31.4 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists per regular sea son game. Boston guard Sam Jones was the man with the hottest hand. Held to seven m the first half, he finished with 27. Tom Heinsohn had 20. Wayne Embry's 21 points in 28 minutes toppwi the Royals, who qualified to meet the Celtics by eliminating Philadelphia in the preliminary series.

Redlands, came within one pin of joining the ranks of perfect game bowlers Monday night when be rolled a sanctioned 299 during an Empire Bowl major league contest. Tension rose among bowlers when Castillo roiled his tenth straight strike and then the roof really went off when he notched his eleventh. On his 12th ball, the six pin remained to stand between him and a perfect game. Allen Otterbcck, bowing manager at Empire, stated the 299 was the highest ever rolled there and that the Bowl is pre scnting Castillo with a check for SloO. Besides this, he said, the American Bowh'ng Congress will present Castillo with an en^ graved wist watch as a. mem ento of the occasion.

A fistful of old pros are enjoying an unusually brilliant ex hibition season while' sharing their positions wth the baliy booed rookies, who, for the most part, have done an early fade out. Tuesday's exhibition results had a typical (for 1964) veteran flavor which singled out: —Camilo Pascual, who burled seven shutout innings to extend his shutout string to 15 as the Jlinnesota Twins recorded their fifth straight victory, 6-0, over the Philadelphia PhiUies" "B team. —Vic Power, fitting for the Twins' first base job, who collected three hits in the victory to up his batting average to .429. —Hank Aaron, who hammered his fourth exhibition home run in the red-hot Milwaukee Braves' 6-3 decision over the Detroit Tigers. Sadowski Blanks Tigers —Bob Sadowski, the youthful vet of the Braves who blanked the Tigers on three hits through the first five innings. He now has yielded only one run in 17 innings for a .53 earned run average. —Moose SkowTon of the Washington Senators, who led 16-hit attack against Baltimore's Steve Barber and reUef ace Stu Jliller for an 11-5 vie tory. SkowTon has 13 hits in 22 at-bats for a robust .391 aver age. —Ron Hansen, who slugged two home runs and drove in six runs to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 7-6 triumph over the St. Louis Cardinals. Ken Boycr drove in three Cardinal nms, two of them on a home run. —Marty Keough, who hit his fourth home run of the spring for Cincinnati in the Reds' 4-3 loss to Philadelphia's "A" team. —And Larry Jackson, who registered his third victory for the Chicago Cubs, pitching seven scoreless innings against the Cleveland Indians. Ron Santo hit a two-run homer and two singles in the Cubs' 6-2 victory. In other games Tuesday the Pittsburgh Pirates capitalized on four outfield errors by the New York Mets to gain an 8-4 victory. Rookie Rex Johnston, with three hits, and Willie Star- gcU, with a two-run homer, led the Pirates' attack. Charley Lau squeezed home the winning run in the last of the 10th inning to give the Kansas City Athletics a S-t victory over the New York Yankees. Rookie AurcUo Monteagudo held the Yankees scoreless for six innings. The Los Angeles Dodgers, who have seen their three best pitchers get shelled in the last three days, saw Johnny Podres take a 6-3 bombarding from the Houston ColLs.

SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) The old Pacific Coast Conference, which expired in 1958 after a wave of football violations, vhrtually came back to life today with the scheduled entrance of Oregon and Oregon State into the Athletic Association of Western UniversiUes. The AAWU (Big Six) announced Tuesday that the two Oregon schools would enter the revamped conference on July 1. And a sptikesman for the group indicated that both would be eligible to go to the Rose Bowl next January although neither plays a representative league schedule until 1967. "No decision about this has been reached yet," the spokey man said. "But Washington State became eligible for the Rose Bowl after it jomed in 1962 and apparently the same policy will apply to Oregon and Oregon SUte." As a result, the Big Six beefed up to eight teams which include Southern California, UCLA, California. Stanford, Washington, Washington State, Oregon and Oregon State. This was the same group, ex eluding Idaho, that fell apart in 1958 after disclosures two years earlier regarding illegal aid given by some of the member schools to football players.

Coach Alex Hanniim. who guided the Warriors to the regular season crown in the Western race after taking over an also-ran club last August, said that Beaty probably would give Chamberlain a tough time.

Figures show that Wilt averaged 31 pomts against Beaty this season while the teams were splitting their regular series 6-6. Overall in the league. Chamberlain shot a percentage of 36.9 points per contest. Hannum also praised the Hawks' Cliff Hagan as a "great money player" and said that Bob Pettit's record stood on its own merits. But the coach wasn't about to give anything away to coach Hary Gallatin's crew, who placed second two games behind the Warriors in the final division standings aft er beating them two straight during a late stretch drive.
