V. Darling. Warnsely, has been declared scholastically ineligible since this photo was taken. By SANDY PADWE Newspaper Enterprise Assn. NEW YORK - (NEA) - When a high school basketball player becomes less accessible to the public than the President of the United tStates, then it is logical to assume the athlete is extraordinary. On Saturday, Lew Alcindor will take the biggest publicity buildup in the history of college basketball with him onto the court of the Pauley Pavillion on the UCLA campus. Next March the experts agreehe will walk off the court with coach John Wooden in Freedom Hall, Louisville, Ky., carrying the first of three successive national championship trophies. Lew Alcindor is 7-1, 230 pounds. At 11, he was a six-footer. At 12, he was learning the game on the playgrounds with Wilt Chamberlain as his teacher. Someday possibly very soon he will be a better basketball player than Wilt Chamberlain or Bill Russell or George Mikan, This most valuable piece1 of athletic property is from Power Memorial High School in New YofkCity. ' He is insiders say very smart, very studious and very articulate. , It is nice to know he is artic-Iate. It was impossible to find out for the last few years. His high school coach would not allow him to talk with reporters, scouts or any other "strangers." "I'm doing it to protect him," said Jack Donahue who is the head coach at Holy Cross now. Donahue's name brines to memory an evening in Madison Square Garden two years ago after Power had played the preliminary to a professional game. Donahue was sitting with a few reporters. Directly across the aisle Lew sat with his team mates. One of the reporters got up, went over to Lew, shook his hand and inquired about his general health and his thoughts on choosing a college. "Sorry," Lew said. "I'm not Seven 'Starters ' n Boosts 'd T 17 I0siugimis CHARLESTON, 111. - The biggest problem facing Eastern Illinois University's head bas ketball coach, Rex V. Darling, is the selection of a starting five. "We've got seven real fine players," Darling says, "and it looks as if I'll be doing some shuffling for a while." Heading the list of Darling's top seven is Don Templeman. "Templeman," Darling says, "has a slight edge on the rest of the squad, due to his experience." The remaining six are seniors Rich Barni and Dennis Hoffmeister, juniors Bill Carson and Jim Corrona, and sophomores Paul Craig and Jim LeMaster. Barni, Darling says, is the best defensive player on the squad, and Hoffmeister is the team's top jumper. Both are lettermen off of last year's squad which posted a 7-18 record. Carson and Corrona are both transfer students from Olney Community College. Both carry heavy reputations from their junior college days.

Charleston with ease, and Corrona is the type of quick ball handler need ed to make the power plays and "quick openers" work, Darling says. Craig and LeMaster are both talented, Darling says. LeMaster led the frosh squad in scoring last year with a 20.3 average, but a sprained ankle may keep him out of the opener. Craig s in his first year of competition at Eastern and is a good shot from long range, the veteran coach says. "It's hard to tell at this time who will tart," Darling says. "This team is so well balanced that any one of the seven could be starters.. There are also five others who will see plenty of action," he said. The five others are sophomores Don Klein, Dennis Best SPORTS Ortiz Sets Sights On Cokes' Title NEW YORK (AP) - Another lightweight title fight and then champion Carlos Ortiz, knock out conqueror of Filipino Flash Florde, may move up against and Roy Smith, and juniors Dale Fruendt and Ron Masters. Smith, Fruendt, Best and Klein are up from last year's frosh squad which posted a 7-1 record.

Ortiz and his manager Bill Daly, who had a second's license for the Monday night bout at Madison Square Garden, mentioned Sugar Ramos of Mexico :City and Carlos. Cruz, the contender from the Dominican Republic, as the possible lightweight opponents. Ortiz flattened the game, wiry Elorde with a smashing left hook to the chjn at 2:01 of the 14th round, ending a fight that was as one-sided as a duel between a machine-gunner and a guy with a water pistol. Elorde, as flat as a day-old glass of ginger ale, never could get going against the smart, crisp-hitting Puerto Rican-born New Yorker. Judge Joe Armstrong gave all 13 rounds to Ortiz, the 3-1 favorite. Judge Artie Aidala scored it 12-1 and referee Jimmy De-velin had it 11-2. The Associated Press score card had it 12-1. The 135-pound, 30-year-old Ortiz looked like a middleweight in against a bantamweight in the 31-year-old, 134V4-pound world junior lightweight champion from Manila. Ortiz, in his third title defense of the year, softened up his rival with stinging left jabs to the head and smashing lefts and rights to the body, and jarring rights to the head. allowed to talk." End interview. The same policy was in effect last 'year at UCLA when Lew" was a freshman. , Now the world awaits Lew Alcindor. Unless he fails public speaking, the University oi Southern California will have the first chance to defense him. "I'll tell you one thing," Chamberlain was quoted. "Nobody in college is going to push him around. My contention is that nobody in college is going to stop Lew Alcindor." Wilt admits that Alcindor is the better all-round shooter. Wilt also feels that because Lew can shoot well with either hand he is going to be a bigger problem for opposition defenses. The only weakness Wilt finds is Lew's lack of stamina. UCLA's assistant coach Jerry Norman confirms this. "This is the thing we've got to help him with," Jerry said. Stamina means everything at UCLAdue to the pressing zone tactics' favored by Wooden; nobody at UCLA is exempt from playing defense. Alcindor's debut this year, will, unfortunately, take the spotlight away from a number of - other deserving players around the country. Jim Walker of Providence, for example, is the most exciting backcourtman in the country. Kentucky's" Pat. Riley, for his size (6-3) probably is the best all-round player. Elvin Hayes of Houston and Westley Unseld of Louisville would be candidates ' for Ail-American center any other year. North Carolina's Bob Lewis, St. Joseph's Cliff Anderson, Duke's Bob Verga and Western Kentucky s Uem Haskins are other collegians whose publicity will suffer. For the next three years Lew Alcindor will be the dominant name in college basketball.

High game honors for women went to Mary Johnson who was Wills On Trading Block: Dodgers COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers said today they have placed short-atop Maury Wills in the trade mart partly if not primarily because he left the club during a tour of Japan. "I don't know yet whether Wills will be traded," said Buz- zie Bavasi, the Dodgers' general manager, "but if anybody makes a reasonable offer then, of course, Wills would be one of me first we would trade. What Wills did was leave the Dodgers early in the tour after being refused permission to do so by Walter O'Malley, the Dodgers' president. However, Wills said he needed medical attention for his right knee. All 1 967 Chevrolets Carry The General Motors 50,0Q0Mile or 5-Year Factory Warranty II III!
