Wilt Could Decide Playoffs Golesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, III. Tuesday, May 1, 1973 19 By Milton Rlchman By MILTON RICHMAN NEW YORK (UPI) - Wilt Chamberlain is so easy to see through, he's transparent. And from what I see, the New York Knicks could be in a little trouble. You take the best of them in the NBA, Dave Cowens, Ka* reem Abdul- J abbar, Rick Barry, Nate Archibald or Walt Frazier, none can dominate a baskeftiall game the way Chamberlain can when he wants to. He wanted to in last year's championship finale between the Knicks and the Los Angeles Lakers, and you remember how that one came out. Now he's acting like he wants to again, so don't say you didn't get any advance notice. Nine days ago, after the Lakers had annihilated the Golden State Warriors 126*70 in the third game of the Western Conference playoffs, Jerry West had this to say. "When Wilt plays the way he did, it's almost impossible to beat us. He's fantastic." Wilt Chamberlain is an intriguing young man. Well, going on 37, maybe he's not so young anymore but he's certainly intriguing. Take the way he psychs himself up. First he sets himself what seems to be an outlandish goal, and then he's apt to make some outlandish statements. Most of the goals he achieves. The statements? That's another story. Who's gonna argue with big 7-foot-2 Wilt Chamberlain? Say you do prove him wrong. What'll it get you? Two points? Anyway, let's take some of those goals he set for himself first. Go back 14 years to 1959, his first year with the Philadelphia Warriors. He set a goal for himself, he wanted to receive the highest salary in the NBA and he got it from owner Eddie Gottlieb. Eight years later he came up with another goal. He wanted to prove he could do more than merely score points. He wanted to show he could be a feeder and playmaker, so he led the league in assists, the only time in NBA history a center ever did so. This season Chamberlain put his mind to grabbing rebounds, and all he did was lead the league in that department, picking off 1,526. Now about the statements he has been making recently. He told Bud Furillo, sports editor of the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, he's getting paid "twice as much" as any other player in the NBA. Wilt Chamberlain is never going to get to heaven that way. True, he earns more than anybody else in the league, but not twice as much. He also said there is too much "jealously" on the Lakers. Bah, humbug! Now who's gonna be jealous of Wilt Chamberlain simply because he drives around in a $35,000 automobile and lives in a million dollar house? Chamberlain said too that he might go back to playing for the Harlem Globetrotters if he didn't like the next contract the Lakers offer him. Oh sure! Now you see why the Knicks could be in trouble? Eddie Gottlieb, who signed Chamberlain to his first contract with Philadelphia and now is chairman of the NBA Rules Committee, says he has always found the Lakers' big center friendly, congenial and the kind of individual likely to do what he says he will. On a basketball floor anyway. "I've only seen him flustered there once," says Gottlieb. "It was in Europe someplace. The other team sent out a midget to jump against him. This guy couldn't have been more than four feet six inches tall. Chamberlain took one look at him and said 'what is this, a joke? Where in hell did you come from?' It was the only time I ever saw him not know what to do on a basketball floor. Register U.S. Patent Office Doubles Champions Cesar Cedeno Headed for Stardom Scratch and handicap doubles winners in the Women's City Bowling Association Tournament are shown above. Standing, from left, are Joyce Groom and Blanche Shultz, handicap champions, and Mary Smith and Jo Stevens, scratch champions. By MURRAY OLDERMAN SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (NEA) — Back home in Santo Domingo, when Cesar Cedeno was a little boy, papa Eugenio didn't want him running off to play baseball. Because there was the family grocery store to run and Cesar, the oldest of the five children, was needed there full time. But Mama Cedeno understood the need of little Ugenito (oo- hen-EE-toe, little Eugene), as they called Cesar, to play this game of beisbol and so she would cover for him as he sneaked out. And when he was 16 years old and playing for an amateur team in the Dominican Republic against a visiting Puerto Rican club, a manager named Tony Pacheco saw him and recommended the kid to a scout for the Houston Astros in the Estados Unidos. The scout offered Cesar a $3,000 bonus, and right there papa Eugenio decided it was O.K. for his eldest to play baseball. The grocery store is no more. Senor Cedeno now works in a nail factory and his husky 22- year-old son is the star center fielder of the Houston Astros of the National League. "Super Baby" is what the guys on the team call him and he is about to be recognized as the next great player in the game, just as Willie Mays, Henry Aaron and Frank Robinson are withering. 77-/S. OL.D SA&S OF HOU&TOsl ALQEADY EQUATES THE.VOUNG, WILLIE MAMS WITH THE YOL/MS HAIL, CESAR "Roberto Clemente had to be killed before people realized he was the greatest ballplayer of his time," says Garry Schumacher, the retired Giants' official who saw them all for 50 years, "and now you never see this kid Cedeno's name in the newspaper," But you will. Leo Durocher, the voluble Lip who guided three of the great center fielders of modern baseball — Pete Reiser, Duke Snider and Wilhe Mays — has Cesar Cedeno (say-zar seh-DANE-yo) in Houston and already has proclaimed him the equal of the great Willie at comparable stages of their careers. The cliche of the admiring ballplayer reads, "He does it all." And Tommy Helms, the Mangieri Has 70 for Week's Best Round Sam Mangieri fired a 2-under par 70 for the top round last week at Bunker Links Golf Course. Other low rounds were a 72 by Gary Harvey, 73 by Duane White and 74 by O. D. Lindsey. Five eagles were recorded as the best shots of the week. Eagles were shot by Terry Surber and Jess Pico on hole No. 18, White and Mangieri on No. 16 and Kathy Walters on No. 4. The best league score was turned in by the Old Timers. Pico, Shave Erickson, Don Hillier, Hienie Johnson and John Charleston all carded 65s. Shooting 66s in the Weekenders league were S. E. Rogers, Sparky Carr, Bob Weber, Don Childers and Bob Martin. School Board 205's Bill Creekmur, Ray Peoples, Joe Patterson, Dick White and John Chapman all shot 68. Joe McConoughey, Ron Reffett, Bob Baker, Otto German and Dick Wright had 69s for the Railroaders. Also with 69s were Jack Grady. Irv Jacobson, Dan Johnson. Chuck Thurman, Chuck Ellison, Glenn Thurman, Garv Harvey, Gene Calhoun, Bob Blevins and Dave Callison. second baseman of the Astros, stands at the batting cage and repeats it in rapt intonations. So does every National Leaguer who is asked about Cedeno. Last year, only his second full season in the majors, he batted .320, walloped 22 homers, tied for the league lead in doubles with 39 and stole 55 bases. A natural for an interview, right? "We do eet een Spaneesh?" asks Cesar quizzically, bat in hand. His English isn't all that bad since he arrived at Covington in the Appalachian League half a dozen years ago, knowing only one word: chicken. He can tell you that he has played baseball for three years now without surcease, summer and winter. "I don't get any rest," he says. I got to go home and play for my people." He steps into the cage, a good- sized kid at 6-2 and 191 pounds, takes a riffle at a pitch and throws some more English at the batting practice hurler. "Stop flippin' it. T'row the bleepin' ball." Later, reflectively, he talks about the Willie Mays comparison. "You can't think," he says, "I'm going to be the next 'Willie Mays.' Not when you're out on the field. Sure, I'm flattered. When you say Willie Mays, it means something. But I don't like to think about it. I just love to play baseball." But he already exercises one prerogative of a star. On the road with the Astros, he rooms alone. Just like Willie Mays. List Bowling Meet Scorls Final rundown of how they finished in the Women's City Bowling Tournament has been announced and is listed below. Tournament team winner was the Musketeers which had with handicap score of 3113. The Acri Streaks were the scratch winners with a 2731 actual. Shirley Shinn had high game of 266 and series at 678. How ever, this could not count on her all-events score since they came in her second team effort. A person may bowl, with more than one team, but it's the scores with the first team that count in all-events.
