NEW YORK OP -Bill Russell's amazing defensive feats overshadowed even Bob Pettit's continued scoring splurge today in the National Basketball Assn. Official NBA weekly statistics issued today disclosed that rookie Russell of the Boston Celtics, college basketball's "player of the year" in 195G with San Francisco, racked up a grand tota' of 112 rebounds in four games during the week. Russell has merely accounted for 35 per cent of all Celtic rebounds in games he's played. 20 per cent of all rebounds by both teams. Virtually unnoticed, 6-10 Pettit of the St. Louis Plawks tallied 134 points in four games to cement his leadership in six different departments--total points (806), average points (26.9 per game), field goal attempts (633), field goals scored (274), free throw attempts (337) and free throws scored (258).

At 35, Robinson's legs no longer were fast enough to take him out of range of the straight-forward rushes. And the Fullmer barrages forced the once-great champion to fall into clinch after clinch, where he was practically "moidercd" by left hooks to the body, and short. | clubbing over-hand rights to the side of the head. Roughness reached its peak in the sixth round when they wrestled to the canvas, landing en- route on the lower ring rope and breaking it. The clock was stopped an additional 25 seconds between the sixth and seventh rounds while workmen tried to repair the rope. But it fell down again in the 10th. and n few extra seconds were required to remove it entirely.
