"I hope this May 4 is a good day for me,"''"'Conway* said Thursday after making Francie's Hat, owned by Al Idppe's Saddle Rock Farm, an official part of the 14-horse field entered in the iVi -mile classic. The post Forrest is worried about is post position 13. "We weren't very lucky in the draw," said the trainer for Mrs. Gene Markey's Calumet Farm. In Forward Pass' five victories this year, four of them in stakes, he started from the No. r through No. 4 post positions. In his three losses, he broke from the No. 5, 7 and 10 slots. The post position did not keep Forward Pass from being made the early 8-5 favorite for the race which will go off at 4:38 p.m., EOT. It will be televised from 4-5 p.m. and carried on radio from 4:20-4:50 p.m. by CBS. If all 14 start, the Derby will have a gross value of $165,100, with $122,600 to the winner.

Robinson Back With the Orioles BALTIMORE (AP) - Outfielder- Frank Robinson has returned to Baltimore after being discharged from a California hospital, but still is confined to his home while recovering from an attack of mumps. Barring further complications, he is expected to begin working out early next week. He was hospitalized after playing a game April 20 in Ana> helm, Calif. By JACK STEVENSON issociated Press Sports Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) - BOS* ton's Celtics once again rule the National Basketball Association roost after what Bill Russell terms "one of the greatest vie* tofies of all the championships we've won," The 6'foot*9 player-coach re» ferred not only to Thursday night's 124-109 triumph in the Forum, home of the lakers, but to the playoffs over-all. For Russell it meant the first title as a coach for after Boston won eight straight under Red Auerbach. The Celtics were beaten out last year by the Philadelphia 76ers, Big Bill figures this one of the finest seasons because "this Celtic team is not one of the most talented that I have been on." Literally, however, they blew the lakers off the court in the first half to build a 20-point advantage at 70-50. John Havlicek, who wound up with 40, and Bailey Howell, with 30, led the assault. Los Angeles played poorly in the finale which gave Boston the series by a 4-2 count, the sixth time in the modern reign of the Celtics that the Lakers have been their final victims. Boston built a 35*28 first-quar* ter advantage before the 17,398 in the new Forum and then surged to a 20-point lead early in the second stanza, Elgin Baylor missed a free throw and incredibly failed on a stuff shot moments later. Havlicek was fouled in the back court, sank two free throws so instead of Los Angeles collect* ing three points, the Celtics had two. In the space of scant min* utes they scored 15 points to a pair for Los Angeles. Late in the third period, Los Angeles closed to within 11 points at 82-71 and again at 8473. "1 thought we were going to do it when they got down to those 11, but they shot right up," commented Laker Coach Bill van Breda Kolff. In the American Basketball Association, the New Orleans BUGS and the Pittsburgh Pipers will engage in their showdown battle for the championship Saturday night in Pittsburgh. The best-of-7 series is tied at three victories for each team.

(AP) - that wispy, fragile looking playing the piano and that husky, muscular athlete running the 100- yard dash are basically the same as far as heart beats go, says a North Texas State University biologist. Dr, James R. Lott, using ap* paratus developed by space scientists to monitor body rane» tions of astronauts, has been studying the effects of stress- both physical and emotional— on humans. In monitoring the heart rate of Stefan Bardas, resident pianist in the university's School of Music, Dr, Lott found the musician's pulse rate remained above 120 during the entire two hours of a recent concert performance. The average pulse rate is 72, Twice his heart reached a peak of 168 beats per minute. In contrast, a 100-yard dash specialist on the NTSU track team registered 144 at the start, 132 during the race, and 150 immediately after, in actual competition. A distance r u n n e r's heart registered 138 at the beginning of a one-mile run, reached 162 before the end of the race and briefly peaked at 168 immediately after. The giologist said however, it Friday, May 3,1§68 was reasonable to believe that cardiac changes during' actual athletic competition may not be' the same as cardiac changes in nomcofnpetitive physical exer* tions, Me said he began his research with the young athlete in mind because of several deaths among the nation's school boy athletes. "Some of these are attributed to heart problems, although in most cases the youngsters have undergone physical examinations prior to the beginning oi the season,"hesaid. "1 would like to see a time come when all young athletes undergo pre-season physical examinations that would include a biotelemetry examination of body functions during strenuous workouts," Dr, Lott said, The scientist said he felt this might enable a team physician to detect some heart problems early enough to prevent further aggravation of the condition. "My immediate aim is to establish a simple, inexpensive, routine test measurement of a s u b j e c t 's EKG—electrocardiogram— and heart rate during a short exertion session, with equipment so portable it could be carried in a suitcase," Lott said. Lett's research concerns the effects of physical and mental stress on three specific body "meters" -the electrocardiogram (EKG), the heart rate itself and the electroencephalogram (EEC), or electrical brain waves. .
