WINNIPEG (AP) - U.S. competitors won the Canada- U.S. Speedskating Championship on the weekend for the fourth consecutive time, rolling up a total of 294»/ 4 points lo Canada's 65'^. The American squad held a 144-36 lead over the Canadians at the end of competition Saturday and stretched their margin of victory Sunday. C'mada last won the annual match in 1966. ST. LOUIS (AP) — Boston's John Bucyk is the National Hockey League's East; Division All-Star left wing, but New York Rangers Coach Emile "cat" Francis says he'd just as soon have his own Dave Balon. The hard-working Balon, held in check two periods by the St. Louis Blues, showed why in the final 20 minutes Sunday night by leading the Rangers from behind to a 4-2 NHL win. Scoring his 24th and 25th goals at just past, the season's midway point, Balon stuffed a shot past Blues' netminder Ernie Wakely off a faceoff at 1:53 of the last session. After goals by teammates Brad Park and Bob Nevin gave New York a 3-1 lead, he subdued a late Blues challenge by hitting the net again with 28 seconds to go. The 32-year-old Balon, second lo Bucyk in lasl week's NHL All-Star balloting Hill sparkles for North in Senior Bowl for the East, lied Detroit's Frank Mahovlich for 10th in league scoring last season with 70 points. This season he trails line-male Dave Tkaczuk in Ranger poinls but is far ahead of a pace producing 33 goals for him in 1969-70. "I think it's just the right combination on the. line he's working with," said Francis. "Las year we had a line of Balon, Tkaczuk and Nevin. This year it's Balon, Tkaczuk and Billy Fairbairn. It's guys working together and helping each other to score.'" The waspish Francis said he is also thinks Balon, who on his second lour as a Ranger, should have been a member of the NHL East's All-Stars lasl year. SUNDAY NUW YORK 0 0 •!—<!

SHOTS NEW YORK 15 9 12—3(i BLUES G 7 11—24 By JIM BELL Telegraph Sports Writer Alton's basketball Redbirds have ascended the Southwestern Conference throne and could be destined to stay there. Shooting at the West Junior High goalry, they did it in convincing fashion by snapping Granite City's seven- game winning streak, 72-50, before a partisan crowd Saturday nighl. Their conquest of Pontiac's holiday tournament champs perched them atop the conference heap with a 5-1 record. They are 10-3 overall. On the other hand, the Warriors fell to 3-3 in league action and stand 9-4 out of it. Looming ahead for the Redbirds are East St. Louis' Flyers, their only conquerors in conference play, who will visit here Saturday in a watered-down condition. , Thanks to a mid-year graduation, the Flyers will bo without fi-foot-5 Doug Young, who has been averaging 20 points and 17 rebounds per outing, and lesser light Calvin Jennings, a 6-footcr. East St. Louis, which is 10-2 overall and 4-1 in conference, embarrassed Alton in the latler's conference debut, 7466. A conference ruling, year, permits mid-year graduates (Young and Jenings) only one game against SC foes in round-robin sdideuling. Alton commanded at every stopping point against Granite City but had to five times rally from behind before coasting home. Glen Lott hit a garbage- type, beat-the-clock shot at the first quarter's end to give the' Redbirds a 17-15 edge. It was 32-29 at halftime and 50-41 at the third quarter's halt. At the outset, and through the early going, the Warriors held leads of 2-1, 4-3, 6-5, 21-19 and 25-23. Midway of the second heat, Plunkett and Ham shine In Hawaii MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Arizona State's J.D. Hill, who scored two touchdowns for the North, says that playing in the Senior Bowl gave him something of an idea about what it will be like playing for the pros. "I've got lo do a lot more than I've been doing as a college player," said Hill, who was voted the game's outstanding player after the North defeated the South 31-13 in the Saturday match. "I'm glad I got the opportunity to play in this game with a quarterback like Dan Paslorini a n d against defensive backs like the South had," added Hill, who scored one of his touchdowns on a 73-yard pun,t return. Paslorini, the strong-armed passer from Santa Clara who engineered the North victory, hit 13 passes for Ifi'J yards, averaging 35 yards on seven punts, handling kickoff duties and adding to the scoring with a 27 - yard field goal. More than 100 National Football League coaches, scouts and personnel directors • watched the game under cloudy skies as the North scored two touchdowns in the opening period. The first came after Tom Duncan of Toledo ran a 43- yard interception return to the South two-yard line. Three plays later, the North scored on Pastorini's eight-yard shot to Hill'in the left corner of the end zone. Hill scored the other one when he fielded a line-drive punt at his own 27 and blazed his way for the goal line. HONOLULU (AP) — "There were a lot of great players out there, said Penn State's Jack Ham of his .fellow collegiate stars in Saturday's Hula Bowl game. One was Heisman Trophy winner Jim Plunkelt of Stan-ford, who completed 11 of 12 passes for 133 yards and scored the. lasl touchdown lo lead Ihe North to a 42-32 victory over the South. Plunkett was named the game's outstanding back and Ham was named the outstanding defensive player. Backing Plunkelt were Notre Dame's Joe Theismann and Ohio' Stale's Hex Kern, who doubled on offense and defense. Theismann gained 5!) , yards in four carries lo tie for game honors and set up a touchdown on a 37-yard punt return. Kern passed for one touchdown and intercepted a pass while on defense. Mississippi's Archie Manning led Ihe South's second half comeback after a 3.1-7 half lime deficit. He completed 3(1 of 33 passes for 2iJ4 yards and gained another 27 yards on eight carries. Winning Coach John Halston of Stanford said, "Any of my three could have dominated this game, and Manning really made a believer out of us all. A Hula Bowl rule which has the leading team kick off regardless of which learn scores the last touchdown kept the North defensive team on the field most of the third quarter. "Our offense was out of there so long we lost momentum, said Ohio Stale's John Brockington, who carried 14 times for 55 yards. South Coach Hayden Fry of Southern Methodist said, "We didn't deserve lo win because we played a bad first half But they stuck together... and I was proud of the way they came back. Civic Memorial overpowers Dupo, 71-49 B E T II A L T 0 — Civic Memorial rolled to its fifth straight Midwestern Conference basketball victory without defeat here Saturday, defeating Dupo, 71-49.

Lott, with only 1:48 to go prior to intermission, scored A It o n ' s go-ahead bucket, lipping the ante to 26-25, putting the Warriors down to stay. Thenceforth they struggled to keep pace. Throughout the first period and on into the second, the score was tied five times and the lead changed hands as many. Mike DeRuntz, veteran G-S'/fc Warrior frontliner and 6-7 Jim Johnson of Alton staged a baseline bailie In the opening period. DeRuntz, hugging the lane in close, chalked up five buckels in six tries for 10 of Granite City's 15 first period points. Johnson, operating in identical style, counted eight of Alton's 17. Neither was that effective thereafter in scoring but both figured prominently around the boards as Johnson cuffed 13 rebounds and DeRuntz claimed nine. Much credit for checking DeRuntz belonged to defensive-minded Lott, who was the sandwich man in Alton's 2-1-2 zone. "It was Glen's job to keep DeRuntz from the boards after their first shot" explained winning coach Ralph Sterrett, "for we simply didn't want him taking any second tries. "And Glen did a good job on him," added the Rcdblrd boss. Proof of it lies in the fact that DeRuntz, before fouling out wilh 1:26 remaining, was limited to one field goal in each of the third and fourth quarters. While Lott was harrassing DeRuntz, Johnson marked up five points in the second period; six more in the third and then topped off his 21- point night with a lone bucket in the fourth. Alton made its breakaway after calling for time with 5:01 to go in the third period. The Redbirds were then up by only two, 36-34. Stcrretl's crew stuffed in six straight points and, after Terry Ripka's ripper from the side, added four more to pretty well spell out the outcome. That flurry made it 4C-36, causing Granite City to request time. Shortly thereafter, Alton ballooned the difference to 5038 before Kevin Dyer's three- point play on Lott's misdemeanor concluded the period's action at 50-41. The noteworthy part of Alton's push at that particular part of the third, when the 'Birdies out-scored the visitors 10-2, was its "team effort." Everybody — Loll, Johnson, Ron Caldwell, Dean Powell and Rick Minor — figured In the nine-bucket scoring spree without the benefit of a free throw. There again the Granite Cilians came up short. Only 22 personal fouls were whisllcd by distinguished referees Mike Ireland and Ray Sonnenberg and the Warriors were charged with 14 of them. That gave the Altonians four two-shot opportunities plus three bonus ones, leading to 16 free throws of 23 cracks from the line. Meanwhile, with only'eight personals assessed against the Ri-dblrds, the Warriors scored but four of nine gift chances, were limited to one two-shot blast and had only one bonus benefit with 1:05 to go In the contest. Nonetheless, the Redbirds would have won it on fielders alone, for they out-shot the Warriors 28-23 and outrebounded them, 34-26. Besides Johnson's leading bundle, Caldwell came up wilh 20 points and Minor, who didn't start, chipped In 12 at key times in Ihe lale going. Caldwell fed most of the opening half and scored but seven points. Then he "turned it on," scoring 13 in the final 16 minutes, nine of them coming in the last period. Caldwell's deftness and leadership shone brightly in that quarter. Alton out-scored Granite City, 22-9, yielding only four buckets afield to the Warriors. Six-foot-5 Hipka, shooting from the sides and corners, registered 12 jxiints to go with DeRuntz' top 19, the only Warriors to score in doubles. Alton cashed in 28 fielders in 57 attempts for a .491 average after carrying a .440 halftime percentage. Granite City marked 23 of 55 from the field for .418, less than its .437 gail at intermission. Both teams erred 15 times. '•- * * DOUBLE DRIBBLE — Even though his, Redbirds have completed the conference cycle and show but one loss ever - cautious Sterrett doesn't feel that his team is a shoo-In winner by any stretch of the term. . .

Each made his Big Ten debut by leading his team to victory and in no time at all the comparisons to Michigan's great Cazzie Russell were being made. Wilmore poured in 44 points in his conference debut to lead Michigan to a 90-89 victory over Wisconsin and McGinnis scored 38 points in a 101-90 victory over Northwestern. Illinois, the only team to w i n at home, dumped Michigan State 89-61 while Purdue fashioned a surprising 83-76 triumph at Minnesota and Ohio State had little trouble with defending champion Iowa, turning back the Hawkeyes 97-76 at Iowa City. ALFRED, N.Y. (AP) Cornell University won the Alfred University Invitational Ski Meet Sunday with the help of Jan Palmer, who won both the men's slalom and giant slalom events. WATERVILLE VALLEY, N.H. (AP) — Lance Pulsen of Olympic Valley, Calif., won the giant slalom Sunday and took combined honors in the ninth annual Corcoran Cup slalom races on Mount Tecumseh. ' But the spotlight was on Wilmore and McGinnis. Michigan Coach Johnny On- called Wilmore "the greatest I've ever coached" but refused to make comparisons with Cazzie Russell. "We'll have to win the championship three times before we can start comparing him to Russell," said the elated Orr after Wilmore had hit on 17 of 25 field goal attempts and tossed in 10 of 12 free throws. As for McGinnis, Northwestern Coach Brad Snyder called him "something else. He's an unbelievable player." McGinnis, 6-foot-7 and 235 pounds, also snagged 23 rebounds causing Snyder to say, "He has more physical talent than any player I've seen in the Big Ten. Yes, I would say he has more physical ability than Cazzie Russell." Indiana Coach Lou Watson was completely pleased with McGinnis' performance since the sophomore sensation has a reputation of paying little 'attention to defense. "McGinnis played his best game of the season against Northwestern," said Watson. "He was good not only on offense but also on defense. He really worked at it. I don't know if McGinnis is the strongest player as any I've seen but he's certainly one of the strongest." The first round of Conference play held up claims of this being possibly one of the most wide open races In Big Ten basketball history, especially when the home court advantage creeps back into the picture. Four conference games are on tap Tuesday night with Wisconsin at Illinois, Minnesota at Indiana, Iowa at Michigan State and Northwestern at Purdue. MICH. ST. (61) ILL.
