OLYMPIC PLAYOFFS AT STAKE IHinois And Kansas Favored To Pass Semi-final Tests In NCAA Se»ttle-(*).The UI1 men from the Illinois tall corn country and the' 'Lovtllette-led powerhouse from Kansas are rated as heavy favorites to survive tonight's semi- linill of the NCAA Basketball Championships. . 'But St John's University's Redmen from Brooklyn, who twisted the tall of the Kentucky Wildcat in th« regional playoffs, were quietly present and not conceding a thing. They'll tangle with the fithting Illini in the opener. Two.hours later Santa Clara--, ' even more the underdog than Sig John's--will try to take the meas- 1 urt of the. Kansans.. Those Jay. hiwki measure pretty big;'especially center Clyde Lovellette. At 8 feet'9 he's .the largest thing.In or put of the tournament. Coach Bobby Feerick of the lightly regarded but frisky Santa Clara Broncos, had but thii brief prediction for the'press: '·We'll show up." Prank McGuire of · St. John's ras just as cautious. He said that before his team met Kentucky Saturday night in Raleigh, N. C., he "had a feeling something would happen." "Hope We're Ready" Both Harry Combes of Illinois and Dr: F. C. (Phog) Allen of Kansas were reluctant to say anything that might indicate they expected to trounce the darkhorse teams. Allen put it for both when he laidi "I know we're meeting a inspired club. I hope we're ready. He was careful Monday, that n prying eyes should see Just how ready , his Jayhawks were. ' Th team, which has won 26 and lot only two up to now, took a secre drill in the University of Wash ington pavilion. Allen' stationed guards at all entrances. The other teams also took shor workouts--but with little secrec --on the court which will rock to night and Wednesday with th whoops of 11,200 fans. The big pavilion 15,8 sellout for both-th semi-finals and the climax session which will be televised locally. The opener will be regarded the title game for Eastern U. S teams and the · nightcap as th Western ' crown struggle. · -Th losers will open Wednesday night' action in the - consolation final and the winners will be shooting for the national championship. Both winners the first night will earn berths in the national Olym pic trials to be played in Kansa City, and Madison Square Garden in New.York... . aV AIXAN A. OILBBBf. JB. We met a gentleman yesterday who stopped us and with an angry snarl demanded to know why we , hadn't' covered Fayetteville High School's particpation in the NCAA tournament at Kansas City. We ihlsied the point the first time ·round and defended ourself on the grounds that we did have a story on that subject. "Okay," the fellow replied ^who'd they play and who bea Vm? I know they lost'or you'd uv bad a big headline." A day or so ago the Associated Press carried · story on the receipt! from last January's bow famo. The ctory was pegged on the statement: "There may be evils in football bowl games . . . but one of these ·vllt apparently isn't money. 1 In the next paragraph the writer contend* that "...none of the colleges involved Is getting overly fat on the returns." Figures subsequently T reveaiec in the story tended--in our estimate--to make the story the silliest of the year. But we'll agree that a definition of terms is at .the root of the thing. v For instance: if money is not an «vil in Itself then it could conceivably be assumed that a big pile ol money is not an evil. (But don'l pursue that logic a step further 'unless you are willing to suffer the wmsee-uences.) And: what is meant by "overly fat"? It is just possible that the writer was inferring that one can't get the necessary minerals and vitamins from a steady diet of green backs (in other words the green in greenbacks ain't chlorophyll.) The conclusion we drew from the story was that Arkansas' athletic director John Barnhill would Just love to-get into a -position where he could count that bowl money without fear of an attendant evil or the'added risk of becoming financially obese. For the record, here are the sums of money netted by the eight teams in the four major bowls of January 1. Maryland--$101,000; T. C. U. $88,000; Kentucky--$70,000; Tennessee---$69,000; Baylor--$69,000; Stanford--$62,000; Georgia Tech --$25,000; and Illinois--$15,000. All those figures are net. after expense money and the various cuts to conferences, etc., had been deducted. The story explains that Georgia Tech and Illinois went to elaborate expense in their trips ' (Georgia Tech's expenses are represented at $44,000). An extremely',radical element In,the University's, faculty came to light .last week. We ran ,a column thatmentioned, among other things, the way spring basketball practice WAS shaping up for new Coach Glen Rose. The University's spring vacation, comes at a time tljat is inconvenient to an early start in cage drills and we suggested (with tongue In cheek) that the athletic department ignore the regular vacation and give the boys a special one later on. Well, sir. The very next morn- Ing we have a letter from this University faculty member taking Issue with that proposal. He contended that such an idea was preposterous.' Hit grounds were that athletes are in school to get an education and such a fact should be recognised, spring practice or no. · On top of that he'cited the long diligent hours applied «.o sports by . these athletes and expressed consternation at the thought that we would deprive them of · trip home to tie their folks. . O« the very face of it the mairi · radical thinker, and evidently a subversive on* for he failed to ·Ign his name. And at radical as the man li we ·re thoroughly In agreement with bis view*. Evidently our touch that day was a mite too subtle. We apologize and herewith declare that we thought last year's barnstorming trip that took the boys away from school a week was senseless, and that class work is of more vital a nature than even an undefeated season. (How radical can you get?) For the first time in history the Arkansas Open, golf tournamem will be a completely separate affair from the state amateur. The Open this year will be under .the direction of the newly organized Arkansas Professional Golf Association, and will have as an added feature a Cup Match pitting the state's -top amateurs "against the state's pros. '. It is doubtful that Northwest Arkansas will be represented in this cup match affair for a pair ol reasons--the lack -of Interest in state golf tournaments by the'golf- er»rin-this'-«rea-and-: ; th»^lack of interest in establishing · handicap by the golfers of this area. However by virtue of some, lengthy correspondence we've carried on, there : is some assurance that the best golfers, of this area will be considered when the time comes to pick the team of amateurs. If anyone is interested we'd suggest he mention the matter to his pro and get .busy establishing a handicap. Only five-handicaps and better will be considered. Two Defending Champs On Hand For NCAA's Wrestling Tournament Port Collins, Coio.-GP)-Defending heavyweight champion Bradley Glass of Princeton and George Layman; Oklahoma A. and M.'s 137-pound titleholder, top the strong field entered in th« National Association w r e s t l i n g championships here Friday and Saturday. Glass and Layman are the only returning' titleholders but there are nearly a dozen of last year's runners-up and third placers who'll try again for the top trophies.' More than 35 colleges are ex- jec'ted to enter teams. Formal entries have been filed already by defending champion Oklahoma and Oklahoma A. and M. ( last year's Ifb. 2 team. A strong entry is expected from Penn State, this year's Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association champion. Penn State finished third in last year's nationals. Carter In Near Peak Form For Title Bout Los Angeles - (XP) - Lightweight champion Jimmy Carter said today he is near peak form for his world's boxing title defense here April 1 against Lauro Salas. Carter opened his ocal training his week, figuring he'll have no rouble reaching the 135 pound imlt for the fight. The champion, making his second defense, rules a solid favorite over the speedy but ight hitting Los Angeles battler. Rogers Residents Aid Victims Of Tornado Rogcrs ?

Snead Forfeits Jacksonville Title To Ford Jacksonville, Fla. - (#) - D o u g Ford's first big golf victory--the Jacksonville 'Open title--was assured when Slammin' Sam Snead forfeited their 18-hple playoff. Ford, 28-year-old' Harrison, N. Y., professional, .'and Snead, 37- year-old Ryder Clip team captain and PGA Tournament cha;npion, tied for :irst place at 280 when the 72-hole tournament wound up yesterday. . A playoff was scheduled for this afternoon, but Snead announced he wanted to relinquish claim to the top $2,000 to Ford and- take second money of $1,400. Snead said he was .reluctant to take the first-place tie on the strength of a ruling in his favor on an out-of-bounds shot in "Saturday's second round of the tournament. The veteran slammer from White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., said, "1 don't want anybody to think I am taking advantage,of the ruling," and insisted on forfeiting. This victory was the biggest.of Ford's career. ' Dave Douglas, Newark, Del., pro., finished at 283 for third place and $1,000. After winning four straight tournaments, Jack .Burke, 29- year-old Texan, finished out of the money at 293. But he still held first place among money winners for the year with $8,720.

With Pitching Cardinals To Be Tough Club, Says Lanier BT The Associated Press Max Lanier, who tolled long and faithfully for the St. Louis Cardinals, looked over his old mates last week and predicted that with some pitching Eddie Stanley's men would be tough to beat. . He might have had the right idea. The Cards have played 16 grapefruit league games, and their pitching staff has permitted the opposition Just .47 runs for an average of 2.94. Except for the opener, when the New York Yankees scored 11 runs, the Ditchers have not nllowed more than six runs In any one game. Yesterday's. 1-0 triumph over the Philadelphia Phils was the fourth shutout turned in by the Cards. Willard Schmdt, a youngster .who has been outshining Vinegar Bend Mizell, combined with the veteran Cliff Chambers to hold the Phils to two hits. Schmidt has hurled 20 innings this spring without yielding a run. The Phils' only hit off him in his six-inning stint on the mound was a bunt by Forrest Burgess. Stanky t e a m e d with Red Schoendienst at the keystone for the first time this spring. He pushed Schoendienst over to shortstop and played second- base him* sell. Schoendienst) the regular iecond baseman, made an · error, aut otherwise looked good at shortstop. The one sobering note of an otherwise good day for the Cards came when Bob Slaybaugh, a 20- year-old pitcher assigned to Oma- ha, was hit in the face by a line drive in batting practice. Doctors Hid he might lose, his left eye. 1 Hal Newhouser, who had hoped to be of the Detroit Tigers, started against the"Cincinnati Reds and was shelled for four runs In the fifth inning. The Heds went on to win, 7-0, behind the pitching of Herman Wohmeier, Bill Bevans and Frank Smith. The "hopeless" Chicago Cubs ran their winning skein to six games by taking their', third straight from trie Cleveland Indians, 6-5. , The New York Yankees, who have been having their troubles at the plate, managed to struggle I I U fJltlLt;, i l l u u c l g ^ U tU a l l U £ £ l £ ; ast the Boston Braves, 3-1, on ome runs by Bob Ccrv and Gil McDougald. The Brooklyn Dodgers defeated the Philadelphia A's, -10-9, in the 10th inning when Jackie Robinson walked, then went around on a double by Roy Campanella. Ham Shoot To Benefit State Disaster Areas The Sportsmen Club has completed plans to hold a "Ham Shoot" Sunday afternoon at the club's grounds on Highway 71 South. All proceeds from the shoot will be .given to the relief of the tornado stricken areas of eastern Arkansas. The shooting will commence at 12:30 and continue through the afternoon.

James Ptak ruled that the grocery company must either remove a shed at the back of the store or rebuild it to conform with regulations governing construction in the First Fire 'Zone.' . In a 45-minute trial, City At. torncy A. D. McAllister, Jr., put on proof of the city's contention that the frame shed, attached to the rear of the brick building, was built in violation of the fire code and had not been removed changed to meet the code despite repeated warnings. For the defense, John W. Murphy contended that the shed was built on orders from the state Board of Health, the mayor and the police chief. In addition, he argued, such a shell is authorized under Section B of the ordinance governing First Fire Zone construction. Witnesses for the city were Sanitarian James Coe and John' E. Mahaffcy, city engineer. Edward Brooks, co-defendant with his father, F. E. Brooks, took the stand for the defense. . Under Judge Ptak's ruling, the shed must be rebuilt or removed within 30 days. To conform with the ruling, the shed must be opened along its long side, and the re- BARON Of BASKETBALL . * By Aton Mcrtw APOIPH RV Of KlHTUCKY Wo* m 9rt co t cottFeatict ·nit* yfAff-ff* HTH f/Mce 199*.' mainlnf (idol must be covered with firc-roslstant materials, · The open side may be screened, However, the judga said,, even when rebuilt the $h«d can, be utcd only for storageV trash and fcarnsae-- not for fruit and vegetable itor- age.
