Senator Hints New Trouble for Finley By G. MILTON KELLY \V.\STTI\GTO\ f AP)—The defiant efforts of Charles 0. Finley to pull his American League baseball club out of Kansas City threatened today to get tanked in a swelling Senate in- vestigalion. The league already has threatened to revoke Finley's franchise unless he comes to terms which would keep the team in Kansas City. With Finley showing no I of yielding to liis fellow club owners' ultimatum and threat| cning an antitrust suit if the league attempts to enforce it, Sen. Edward V. Long, D-Mo., blazed away from the flanks with a new threat of trouble for the battling club owner. Long announced from Kansas City that he was preparing to demand that the Senate antitrust and monopoly investigating subcommittee subpoena Finley for questioning ajiri his financial Davidson Wildcats Are Upset Victims By TED MEIER Ataeeltted Press Sports Writer Furman made college basketball history a decade ago when the Paladins walloped Newberry 149-95 and Frank Salvy scored 100 points for an individual single game NCAA record that still stands.

"We have some special plans for them, and we're going to make them work letter perfect," said Furman Conch Lyles Alley before Hie game. That's just, what his boys did as they avenged an early season 89-63 trouncing by Davidson to hand the Wildcats their second defeat of the season in 20 starts. A capacity cr»wd of 5,600, hi eluding Frank Selvy as honor guest, howled in glee at Greenville, S.C. as the Paladins turned the game into a rout with a 14-4 burst late in the game. Drake stayed on top of the Missouri Valley Conference with a 53-50 victory over North Texas, Bradley downed Tulsa 73-64 in overtime, Providence won its 12lh straight by defeating Rhode Island 86-72, Wyoming beat Denver 77-158 and Houston whipped Miami, Fla., 93-83 in other Thursday nighl games. Davidson, the only team in The Associated Press Top Ten to play, took an early 10-point lead, was ahead at 33-32 in the second half when the inspired Furman players spurted and opened a 17-point lead at 64-47. Don Frye, with 18 points, and Frank Sclvy's brother, David, with 17 led Furman along with Norman Schaffcr who held Davidson's star, Fred Hetzel, to 16 points. Leads Start to Finish But Still LOMS Tilt PURDY, Mo. (AP) — Purely High School led from the opening whistle to the final buzzer in a semifinal game of the Purdy Invitational Basketball Tournament Thursday night—and still lost to Pincville. With the final seconds ticking off the clock and Purdy leading 53-52, Plnevllle's Jim Stringer was fouled as he drove for the basket. The foul came as the game-ending buzzer sounded. Stringer sank both shots to i give his team a 54-53 victory. W«av«r to Announce 10 Lttt*r*of Infer* MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Football Coach Doug Weaver said he would announce today that 10 more high school players had signed letters of intent to enroll at Kansas State University. The signing of Tim Knolla, an all-city halfback while at Wichita Kapaun last season, brought the total of such letters to 17 Thursday. records fcr scrutiny in connection with the row. Long is a member of the subcommittee, and such a request from a member often is granted—but not always. Chairman Philip A. Hart, D-Mich., told a reporter he would awai f , developments before commenting. The antitrust subcommittee repeatedly has 'invited" Finley to testify Tuesday at a hearing which could bring him into a dramatic confrontation with American League President Joe Cronin, a scheduled witness. Cronin, like Long, insists the team must stay in Kansas City. Hart announced Thursday that Finley hasn't answered the subcommittee's invitations, and the hearings would go ahead with or without him. The hearings have been a low pressure affair, seeking sports leaders' views on a bill hy Hart which would grant professional football, basketball and hockey the same antitrust law exemptions now allowed pro baseball. Finley apparently vanished as if into the fireworks his club helped make famous. He was nowhere to be found. His Chicago office said he was not expected until Friday, today. The specter of the deadline grows rapidly larger with no hint of a possible solution. The American League previously had ordered Finley to come to terms by the date set or face possible expulsion from baseball and loss of the franchise. Finley countered with a threat of court action if his control of the ball club is challenged. On another front, Sen. Edward Long (D-Mo.) proposed that Senate investigators subpoena Finley along with financial records of the club. Long is a mcmbsr of the Senate antitrust and monopoly investigating subcommittee which said Thursday it had not heard from Finley concerning an invitation to testify at a public hearing Tuesday. Whether or net Finley Is ordered to-so appear is "no concern of oars" said McKenney. Besides Cronin, the elusive and "informal" meeting Thursday also included Chicago White Sox President Arthur Allyn, New York Yankees co-owner Dan Topping Jr., club board members William Daley '* of Cleveland and Pavl O'Bryan of Los Angeles and Boston Red Sox legal adviser Jack Hayes.

Warriors Drub Boston, 706-95 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The most likely Valentine's Day gift the mailman will bring the San Francisco Warriors is a water bomb from opponents anxious to cool off the red-hot West Coasters. Presumably happy to pay the postage would be the Boston Celtics.

Keith Rucas of Friends, who is hi second place, scored only 15 and Kansas Wesleyan beat Friends 7464. In other games.

Bethany is 13-1, Sterling 10-5 and Ottawa 9-6. Kansas Wesleyan's victory was the first in seven games.

But Coach Jake Durham's Bluejays will be rated meet favorite on the basis of tougher district foes. Former state champion Danny Dunham will be Garden's first regional entry. Dunham, who was the state 95-pound titlist two years ago, took second in the district here, and will meet Smith of Junction City in the frst round. Dunham is 12-2 on the year. Larry Scott represents the Buffs on a fourth place finish, and may find his road a little rough. He tackles Upham of Junction City in the opening round. Upham was second in the Salina district. Scott is now 10-5-1. The same story is true for Ron Brooks, fourth place finisher at 145. He goes against Selle of Great Bend, who was second at Salina. Brooks 9-6, may not have as hard a time as Scott. The Buff has previously beaten both the third and fourth place men at Salina. Buff Jim Terrrll has been beaten only twice all year to stand 14-2, but that mark may be in jeopardy at Russell. Both of his conquerors will be in the tourney, Dean Goodheart of Russell (first at Salina) and Mike Beims of Atwood (first at Garden City). Terrell will draw Ken Roylance of Great Bend (fourth place) in the first round. Top Buff hope is 189-pounder David Lightner Lightner won the district and regioanl crown last year at 165, and has not been beaten this season. He stands 15-0-1 on the season and has scored ten pins His top opposition should be Hutchinson's similarly unbeaten Ken Baughman. Lightner is paired with Toedman of Newton in the first session. Final Buff entry is heavyweight Don Gross, who was runner-up here. He meets Ward of Hutchinson in his initial bout at region- als. The biggest Buff has amassed a 12-4 mark for the year. NEW YORK (AP) - Tom O'Hara is a red-haivd. freckled little fellow about the size of a football watcr'.ioy who talks — when pressed — about i running a mile in 3 minutes, 51' seconds.

"He definitely is the man to beat in the Olympic 1.500 met- i ers in Tokyo," jubilant Coach j Jerry Weiland said today. "I c think he will break Peter Sncll's outdoor record with a 3:53 mile before long."

He convinced 13.677 Madison Square Garden customers with a brilliant 3:58.6 effort in the mile Thursday night—the fastest ever run indoors—whipping over the last two laiis virtually alone while the crowd howled: "Go, go, go." O'Hara lurked just off the shoulder of John Camien of Emporia (Kansas) State for eight of the 11 laps, then flashed ' to the front and turned the final quarter in 55 seconds flat. He defeated Camien by 65 yards. The Kansan was timed in 4:06.9.

Twins' Allision Signs Contract By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Friday the 13th came on Thursday this month, but that didn't bother W. Robert (Bob) Allison, Minnesota's practitioner of reverse superstition. Allison, one of the American League's most prolific home run hitters, flouts the superstition surrounding the number 13 by signing his contract every year on the 13th of some month. In doing so, however, the 29- year-out outfielder actually is superstitious in his own way. He performed the same old ritual Thursday in Orlando, Fla.,,.but it was accompanied by a-new ornament — a first baseman's glove. Allison took the glove to Orlando because either he or fellow slugger Harmon Killebrew may be switched to first base to make room in the outfield for Tony Oliva, a rookie who is given a better-than-even chance of forcing such a move. It wouldn't be the first time Allison has played first, but ha has been slightly less sensational there than Hal Chase. "I can play first base, and I will if they want me to," Allison said. "1 am not afraid to play first base, and I feel I can do an acceptable job." —Whether buying or selling, use rcJs.'jvam Want Ads!
