Buffs-Broncos Play Tonight Garden City High's Buffaloes will be looking for their second straight victory orer the Russell Broncos here tonight in ft West Central Kansas League basketball encounter set for the high school gymnasium. Coach Dave Craft's roundball- ers scored the upset of their current campaign at Russell on Dec. 6. crashing the Broncs 45-37, and the Buffs would like to make it two in a row. Reserve contest starts at 6:30 p.m. Garden and Russell first met during the 1959-60 season and the Broncos had captured all seven meetings of the rivals up until this year. Russell is the defendng state Clas* A champion and was highly favored to continue its monopoly over the Buffs. But Garden pulled away in the final period with a delay game : to record the victory. The game had been close all the way, with Russell leading 25-23 at intermission. Tonight's hosts own * 7-6 season mark, but stand only 2-4 in WCKL action. Garden is in sixth place, one-half-game behind Dodge City. Coach Amos Morris' -Broncs I are on the other end of the lad- I der. deadlocked with Hays High's Indians in third place. They posses a 4-3 loop mark and are • 6-5 overall. Triumphs have come at the ex-; pense of Hays (53-49). Great j Bend (51-48), Pratt (53-33), Hays St. Joseph (57-52), Dodge City , (60-54), and Herington (77-55). The latter win was in the third place battle for the Mid-State Tournament at Abilene.

The talented post man has been averaging almost 25 points per game, but he was handled by a fine defensive effort from Buff Bill King in their first meeting. King held him to 11 points before he fouled out and Valentine finished with 17. Filling out Russell starting spots should be 6-1 senior Gary Hines and 5-11 junior Gary Small at the forwards with 5-11 seniors Bill Rome and Steve McCoy at the guards. Craft will go with the same bunch that performed so ably at Liberal last week. Center is 6'5 ! senior Bill King, and the for- I wards will be 6-1 junior Steve Salter and 6-0 junior Tony Gooden. Back line will consist of 6-0 senior Emil Krug and 5-8 junior Melvin Rupp. Shockers Snip Cincy; Sifford, Sanders Bradley Seen as Threat Share Lead in Springs Tourney TED MEIER Associattd Prttt Sports Writer Say, wouldn't it be something if the Drake Bulldogs snatched the championship of the .Missouri Valley Conference out of the mouth of the Wichita Wheat- shockers?

Ingalls and Dicks Dairy each had been beaten only once in league play, that by the all-winning Hamilton County Jaycees. Ingalls led by as much as 12 points in that game, but the Dairymen staged a 'big rally to almost tie it. Dicks' Dairy tcortd 16 points in the last period. But a field-goal try with two seconds left to play missed the hoop. Jim O'Blenness paced Ingalls with 16 points, and Steve Flowers hit 9. Larry Zinn led the Dairymen with 15, and Jerry Wade added 10. In the nightcap, Mickey Williams poured through 21 points for Earl's 66 Service and Warren Alexander added 18. Larry Stuewe paced Fuller Brush with 12. Earl's won it with an 18-point third period.

While the Bulldogs, currently 2-1 in the MVC, were keeping their fingers crossed hoping for I a Wichita defeat, the Wheat-! shockers capitalized on a break ! to turn back Cincinnati. j A turnout of 10,700 at Wichita saw the Wheatshockers turn apparent defeat into victory in the Inst 14 seconds. Down 59-5(5, a layup by Wichita's Dave Stallworth cut the deficit to one point. Then came the big break for Wichita. Cincinnati put the ball in play, but the Bearcat player who took the pass-in accidentally stepped out of bounds. Wichita took possession and Kelly Pete sneaked in a layup to put the Shockers ahead 60-59. Stallworth, the game's high scorer with 24 points, added the final two points on free throws at the very end. The closing second heroics upped-the record of the nationally seventh-ranked Shockers to 15-3 and wiped out the last faint hopes the Bearcats had of winning their seventh straight MVC crown. Wichita's td«* was on free throws, 82.4 per cent compared to Cincinnati's 56.3 per cent. Each team hit 49 per cent of its field goal tries.

INNSBRUCK, Austria (AP) -=It is crystal clear today that Russia is on the way to dominating the ninth Winter Olym- ics even more decisively than it did the last time around. The Soviets scored a clean sweep of the first three places in the ladies' 500 meter speed skating. Last time Russia got only second place. Russia has the gold medal for figure skating pairs. Last time sixth place was the best the Russians did. Russia took third in the men's 30 kilometer cross country ski race, just as it did in 1930, and failed to do anything in the tnen's downhill, just as it did before. All this adds up to two gold medals, one silver, and two bronze for the Russians in tw days of competition • compare* to one silver and one bronze at the same stage in 1960.

Final B-teain wrestling match of the 1963-64 season is set for Garden City High grapplers here this afternoon as they play host to the Ulysses Tiger matmen at the high school gymnasium. First match will begin at about 4 p.m. with all bouts scheduled to be completed before tile start of the Garden-Russell reserve basketball encounter later in the vening. Coach Bob Wilson's junior varsity has yet to post a victory against area varsity squads, but they did edge the Lamar reserves 23-18. Against first strings, Garden has fallen to Dodge City (26-18), Hugotou (2321). The junior Buffs did finish higher than either of those two teams in the Hugoton Invitational. They tallied 83 points, 20 behind champion Ulysses. Hugoton recorded 66 and Dodge 65.

Olog Proptopopov and i Ludmilla Bclousova won - the pairs figure skating for Russia on opening day. Thursday's day of glory for Russia was one of bitter disappointment for the United States. The United State* had high hopes for its downhill skiers, but Ni Orsi's 14th'place was the best the Americans did. The 19- year-old lad from Stockton, Calif., skidded off the ideal line at the first left turn, swung too wide, and was thrown out of line to the next gate. Jeanne Ashworth of Lake Placid, N.Y., and Janice Smith, of Rochester, N.Y., who had looked strong in pre-Olympic tests, managed to tie for fourth place in the women's 500 meter speed skating at :46:2, although they hoped for better.

Sales—Rentals—Salt JOHN TATRO •R 6-o484 By JIM VAN VALKINBURG Afiocitttd Prtu Sporti Writer It's seldom that one of the two Kansas schools doesn't figure in the Big Eight basketball championship. The Kansas-Kansas State game at Manhattan Saturday will decide which one stays in the race this year. K-State, the champion of the pre-season tournament, evened its record at 2-2 by clipping Oklahoma at Norman Monday. Kansas is 3-2 with consecutive victories over Colorado, Nebraska and Iowa State after opening losses to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Saturday night's loser will be in position of having to win all the rest of its league games to have a chance to tie for the title. Kansas has won or shared 18 championships since the league's first basketball season IP 1929, K-Statfe nine and the rest of the league combined has won or shared 18. K-State under Tex Winter has dominated by winning or sharing six crowns in the past eight years. Oklahoma State, out in front at 3-0, should stay there by beating Iowa State, 1-3, at Stillwater. Colorado takes a 2-1 record against Oklahoma, 1,4 at Norman. Missouri, 1-2, hopes to start a comeback by beating Nebraska, 2-1 at Columbia. Kansas is hoping for a big game from veteran Al Correll, who is playing his final game in: the Jayhawki Saturday, His eligibility runs out. Correll opened his career in mid-season of i960 against K-State. Correll fears the Jayhawki in both field accuracy with .487 and in foul shooting with .896. Both marks are better than the school records but Coach Dick Harp said his defensive ability will he the biggest loss to the team. The kay man lot K-State could be seven-foot Roger Suttner, who failed to score in double figures his first three league games, then came back with 16 against Oklahoma. K-State has Willie Murrell, the league's top scorer with a 22- point season average, 24.0 in league play. Kansas is led by George Unseld, a 20.8 man in league play and 16.6 for all games. Kansas had • six-game winning streak at Manhattan until K-State turned the tide in 1959. The Wildcats have beaten KU five straight at Manhattan except for an 84-82 Kansas victory there in a playoff in 1960 to determine the league's NCAA representative. A sellout crowd of 12,500 will bo on hand and a state-wide television audience will watch.
