Rose Opens Cage Practice; Seeks 10 Good Men Glen Rose opened spring basket-,* ball practice at the University yesterday. He was greeted by 20 candidates -- 10 of them lettc-rmen. Rose told his charges at the stai he was looking for 10 men tha could play without weakening th team, and that he planned t spend the entire spring sesslo getting acquainted with the ind vidutl talents on the' team, "I want a picture of each play «r," he said, "and the best an fairest way J know to get it is t witch you in scrimmage." He tol ,. tjearn that he \yanted to giv Wy-.qne of them:' 1 affair '(Shane " ' them:' his afiility "tci'-'go'od -i(l · ' " ' " " AskewftAwfii Porkers from- 19" ,.,,, .hand to ,heJ] eUrteil The two-'-Mrtferrtd'-p'ria to ; the opening -of: tije.^'f terno^H 1 workout on personnel" as-Rbs.e-jtft tempted to get-some' of. the "play er's names in imnii;'-."- .'" Rose told the isq'uadr that the first three day**'pf^pfaict1cc^wll be devoted to fundamental 'drills but that starting Friday t'each/af ternoon will he taken up in scrim mage using the single post offense Ke stated that he plans to Jnstal no specific plays this spring. The team will observe the University's spring vacation, Jeavirn the campus Friday, April 11, anc returning Monday, April 14. In his initial talk to the team Rose informed his men that his first requirement in a boy is hating to lose. "I don't want anyone out hers that doesn't want to win,' he said. "We're going to. try and have Eome^ fun out here this spring, but just remember --it's never any fun to lose." Rose indicated that he plans to put an emphasis on free throws by directing the team to carefully practice that phase of the game before and after every practice session. Once the drilis got under way there was a rugged spirit of enthusiasm and competition evident as the players embarked on an 18-day period of impressing the new coach. Rose moved from one end of the court to the other, occasionally halting action to give a word of instruction. At the end of the drills Rose declined to comment on his first impressions, saying that he needed to know the players much better in order to make a fair appraisal. He said he, might make a search for junior college talent if he feels help is needed in some phase of the game; Bui he added that he won't know about that until after ·pring practice is completed.

Peoria, the".AAu champion, won the game when Howie Williams connected with a 20-foot one- hander with eight seconds to go. But if you talk to anyone who ;aw the game--there were 6,234 n Madison Square Garden lasl night--they'll tell you Lovellctte's muff of a simple layup was the Jig story. With the score tied 60-80'»nd 15 seconds left, Lovellelt'e eleitri- :ied the small but noisy. cfoiVd by stealing the ball from ''Peoria's Marcus Freiberger.

The ball wouldn't behave, hough, and rolled off to the left. "I felt sick," said the record- ireaking All-America later. "After making all those tougher baskets had to go and blow that dinky »ld one-footer." After the hisloric miss, Ronnie Bontemps of Peoria raced in and rabbed the rebound as the clock pun toward the zero mark. Bontemps turned and fired the tail down the court to Williams, who took two steps and let fly vith a high-arching one-hander.' This lime the ball cut the cords, limaxing some of the most heated asketball seen here this season. As a result of its hard-earned ictory, Peoria is the supreme uler of amateur basketball in this ountry. Five of the - Caterpillar layers have qualified for the . S.

A senior who graduates In the spring, Kansas' great center said he has numerous feelers from professional teams and 'the figures he's, heard have been tempting. "But I'm t h i n k i n g about my career," he said. "I'd rather get with one of the AAU teams like the Phillips Oilers or Peoria Caterpillars. Go into business and play biskctbal .on the side. Those are my plins.'\ ·?'Wrirri floating around the Olympic tHtfi here is that :3ob Kurland, the pjlers''7-fool veteran, will re- season and a young man namei Lovellette will step into his shoes ·"The Oilers haven't talked tc me but I'd certainly be intercster in going with them," Lovellett said.

Carter Makes Second Title Defense Good Los Angeles-OT-Jimmy Carter letained his world's lightweight title today after boxing his way to i unanimous decision over challenger Lauro Salas in a rousing 15-rounder. Although piling up a good margin of victory with his sharp lunching- last night, the champion .rom New York never did solve he flailing style of the willing Lauro. "He never did hurt be, but I couldn't figure him out," the champion said after the fight He carried a little cut above his left eye, but otherwise wasn't noticeably marked. In the final two rounds, the challenger -- California's featherweight champion who hails from Monterrey, Mexico, but now lives in Los Angeles -- took the piny away from Carter. The champion was on the canvas in the 15th. Scored as a three-count knockdown by the referee, Abe Roth, despite a count of four by the timekeeper, there was some dis- put about how the champion went 3own. Salas' supporters and he Plenty among the crowd of 7,678, said the champ was knocked .here. Jimmy, in his dressing room ater, said he was off balance and fell as Lauro swung. The crowd paid 531,462.38 to see :he battle at the Olympic Auditorium as Carter defended his 135- pound title for the second time since winning it from Ike Williams last year.

The two teams will square off again Saturday in a second game. The starting lineup !or the series will have anywhe-e from Ihree to six lettermen in it, depending upon the pitcher and outfielder. Very much coiv.Trned over a batting slump Ills charges have been in the past wee.', or so, Coach Hill Ferrcll reports, "our hitting has definately been below par--we've been getting about three or four runs a game, an even with the betttr-than-aver s pitching 1 expert, that won' be enough against a ball club HI; Ihe Aggies." It Is for this reason that (we outfield positions lemain toss-ups As it stands now, Fencll will use .he following on Friday-- (in this batting order)--Prank KJschcl, cf Jim Rinehart, 2b; Bob " R e d 1 Warren or Harold Pridemore, if L,ewis Carpenter, Ib; Lamar McHan or Jimmy Smith, rf; Francis ..oiig, 3b; Lyle Wiikerson, c; Billy Jowden, ss; and righthanders Walt Ccarns, Charles · Brown or Edsel ix on the mound..

"Yogi Berra, Joe Collins and Billy Martin have been out with leg injuries," said Casey. "For- l u n ' t e l y for us, all arc expected to be ready to play either.before or by opening day." Although Stengel claimed he had the best outfield, he was at * loss to name his three regular picketmen. For that matter, with 11^»" the exception of Berra behind the ' ·- ' plate, Phil RJzzuto at shortstop and Joe Collins at first base?, the Old Professor still hasn't been able to make a starting lineup. Until further notice, the out- 'icld picture, shapes up this way: Mickey Manllo and Hank Bauer will alternate In right field. Jackie Jensen and Bob Cory will be two- Ran Bontemps (Bclolt), Frank McCnbe (Marqucttc), Marcus Frel- bci-Rer (Oklahoma), Dan Pippin (Missouri) and Howie Williamj (Purdue), all of Peoria, 111., Caterpillars, and Wayne Glasgow (Oklahoma) and Bob Kurland (Oklahoma .A. and M.) of Phillips Oilers. Selected from University of Kansas as representatives of the college loams arc Clyde Lovellette, Ten ' e Haut'e, Ind.; John Keller, Page City, Kan.; Bill Llcnhard - platooned in center and Woodling will be the regular left fielder. The injury to Marlin, the pending call to service of Gerry Coleman and the sudden rise of rookie Andy Carey has changed the entire complexion of the infield. Indications are t h a t ' C o l e m a n will open the season at second, provided he is rejected for Marine service. In that rase, 1951 Hookie- of-the-Year Gil McDougald will play third. Should Coleman pass his physl- n Kclley, McCune, Kan and Charles Hoag, Oak Park, 111. Alternates -- Tom Gola and Norm Grekln, LaSalle; Ron McGilvray, St. John's of Brooklyn: Bill Hamilton, Southwest Missouri Slate of Springfield; Jack Stone and Bill Donovan, Hollywood Mc- Goes, and Bob Wallace and Bruce Heffloy. U. S. Air Force of Tinker Field, Okla. Portland, Me.--Bob Stecher, 166, Portland, Me., stopped Charle Goulart, 157, Cambridge, Mass., I and Carey will be the regula Ihlrd baseman.

In Vic Raschl 21-10, Allit Reynolds 17-B and Ed Lopat 219, the Yankees possess three of th cal, McDougald will play second best pitchers in naieball.
