After 14 years playing in the National Basketball Association and one year as a coach in the American Basketball Assqci ation, Chamberlain is retirini from the sport he dominated Dr. Leonard Bloom, owner o the Q's, told a news conference in San Diego Tuesday. Bloom said thai meani Chamberlain won't be coachin or playing for the Q's this sea son and will forego the remain ing two years of his three-year SI. 8 million player-coach con tract. Asked if the retirement dec sion was absolute, Bloom sai Wilt "always wants to reserv the right to change his min . . . but for .all practical pur poses we should conclude Wi Chamberlain has retired fron basketball. But Chamberlain said in copyrighted interview in th San Diego Union that he ma get part ownership of the Qs "perhaps 25 per cent, because o Jnoney he says the Qs still ow him.

' Walton Makes Presence Felt In NBA Wars are as good as any we've seen n along time." The offense also worked on passing, uut without wide re ceiver Reggie Craig. The senior from Baytown, Tex., injured a knee against Oklahoma State and Broyles said Tuesday, " don't expect him to be able lo play for a month." D e f e n s i v e tackle Brison Manor, who sprained his knee against Tulsa, was listed as doubtful for TCU. "I don't think he can play," said Broyles. "If he does, it will be wilhout any practice this week." About TCU, Broyles said, "They're a young, hustling, improving team. They know they're getting better, so their morale is good." He could have added that morale should be no problem for any team which has lost to another 15 straight times. TCU hasn't beaten Arkansas since 1958, Broyles' first year with the Razorbacks. Broyles was asked his reaction to this week's AP poll, which finds the Southwest Conference leading all other leagues with four teams in the top 20. "I hadn't even realized it," he said. "But it's great for our conference." . GRANT HALL NEW YORK (AP) -- "... nd from UCLA, No. 32, Bill Walton."' · ·.'

The 6-foot-ll, 225' ound rookie, top choice in this ear's NBA draft and holder of multi-million dollar contract, ·as asked what he thought of ie Garden, considered the Jeeca of basketball. "It's a real nice gym," he aid, pulling thoughtfully on a craggly, red, billy-goat beard. How did he rate his six-point, 1-rebound performance? "I don't know. We won.

The try for two extra points was no good following Kamer's first TD, but tailback Mitchell Day added the two-pointer on a run after the second score. Tackle Joe counted for ny free time." Walton played 30 minutes against the Knicks and was a error on defense, blocking hots, grabbing rebounds and ntimidating anyone in the area. But h e had a bad night on 'ffensc. Working against New York's fohn Gianelli most of the night, ie sank a jump shot 17 seconds nto the game but didn't score igain until midway through the 'ourth quarter. He made just :hree of 18 shots from the field on the night. "My shot hasn't been going n ' lately," admitted Walton, speaking slowly and softly. "It's just one of those things. I'm still finding out a whole lot about our team and everyone." New Portland coach Lenny Wilkens was not concerned with Walton's off-night. "lie's been working pretty hard. He might make our ball- club," said Wilkens, smiling. 'He made some mistakes but all rookies make mistakes." New York Coach Red Holzman said he thinks Walton is aeaded for a great career. "He's going to be a hell of a ballplayer," said Holzman. "Tonight was no indication of what he will be in the future. He just didn't have a good night." Gianelli, however, said he thinks Walton may be in for a tough time. "He's gonna have the same problem I do when hs runs into big centers," he said.

Gentry never threatened seriously in the game, driving into Prairie Grove territory only one time. Long was credited with 12 tackles and two assists to pace the PG defense, while tackle Buddy Autry and linebacker Steve Bartholomew were also sighted for outstanding defensive play. Prairie Grove also won the seventh grade game, tripping Gentry 6-0 on a 65-yard run by halfback Mike McNair after catching a screen pass. Prairie Grove's junior high record is now 3-1, and the seventh graders are 2-2. Next game will be Monday night in Fayetteville against the Woodland B team. ily.
