Tribune MEDFORDak St. Helens Meets Ontario Tonight for A-2 Basketball Title Salem U.R) The Lions of St. Helens and the Tigers of Ontario meet tonight for Oregon's first class A-2 high school basketball championship. St. Helens and Ontario made their way through semi-final round opposition but it was not an easy chore for Ontario. St Helens gained the title picture in comparative ease as the Lions rolled over Coquille 74-64 yes terday. Ontario owed its spot, and a 61-59 win over St. Francis of Eugene, to a pair of charity tosses by Jerry Doman when only seconds remained in an overtime period. Win in Overtime The Tigers took an early 22-9 lead over St. Francis but saw it dwindle until they were on the short end of a 28-26 half-time count. By the end of regulation playing time it was a 57-57 standoff. The clubs matched points until the final seconds when Doman sank his pair of gifters for the win. Stew Robertson garnered 32 to lead the Saints while Earl Doman checked in with 20, high for Ontario. Marlin Marsh contributed 34 points for St. Helens as the Lions rolled to the 74-64 win PGA B reaks Rule For Ike Visit St. Petersburg, Fla. -(U.R) The Professional Golfers Assn. conceded today that rules are meant to be broken especially when a fellow has a date with President Eisenhower. The PGA's problem started when Sammy Snead asked to start the final round of the Miami Open March 25 early so that he can keep a golfing date in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., with the President. It was quickly pointed out that Snead would be violating two PGA rules. But, on the other hand, PGA supervisor Ray O'Brien couldn't see the point of refusing to let one of its members fraternize with the President of the United States. So . . . O'Brien added the committee's action on such "an unusual request" would have to be approved at a later date but he predicted "it should not be much trouble to get it approved."

In two other first-round tourney games at Wichita, Kans., the favorites came through but only after bad scares. Southern Methodist, a heavy favorite, had to stall out the final 46 seconds of play to defeat Texas Tech, 68-67, and tall Okla- Uhoma City had to rally from a 12-point deficit to score what only seemed like a comfortable 97 81 decision over Memphis State.

And with San- Francisco and UCLA meeting in the first game, there will be some top-flight basketball. UCLA was the last team to beat USF, late in 1945. Washington in 1953, California in 1954 and San Francisco last year walked off with the regional title and a berth in the NCAA semi-finals. But not without plenty of suspense and action. O'Brien Twins Remember 1953? That was the year the O'Brien twins, Johnny and Eddie, put Seattle U. on the basketball map. Their long-awaited game with Washington came off here. But big Bob Hou-bregs and company had tpo much height and the dream game turned into .a 90-70 route for Washington. The next night the Huskies were expected to dispose of Santa Clara easily. It didn't turn out that way. The most dramatic moments came near the end of the third quarter when Ken Sears of Santa Clara let fly with a two-hander from the center line. It went through and Santa Clara was right in the ball game. But seconds later, just as the gun ended the quarter, Houbregs cast off from behind the center line. Swish. That broke the Broncs and Washington went on to win. Sears figured in the big moment in 1954, too. Santa Clara was back for another try and went into the final against Southern California. The game went into overtime and with four minutes left Feerick employed some strange strategy. Santa Clara, a point behind, froze the ball as time ticked off and tension mounted. The Trojans glued onto the Broncs like flies. Finally with about 10 seconds left, the ball was fed to Sears who made a drive for the bucket and shot. He missed and USC had the ball game. -More Suspense Last year provided even more suspense. The finale was between San Francisco and Oregon State a duel between Bill Russell of the Dons and Swede Halbrook of Oregon State, a 7-foot 3-inch center. With a couple of minutes to go USF had what seemed to be a safe lead. But Bill Toole of OSC twice stole the ball and the 1 TRU-MIX h Huwuu WHATS THE IDEA OF SAYING "SAMS TO YOU" I EVERY TIME A PRIVATE "SALUTES YOU?

It was fed to Ron Robins, the best set shot the Beavers had. He fired and missed and San Francisco had won 57-56 to preserve its winning streak. Royal Announces Two Aides at Washington Seattle (U.R) Darrell Royal, new University of Washington football coach, has announced appointment of two more aides. They are John Baker, line coach under Johnny Cherberg, and Mike Campbell of Vicks-burg, Miss. Baker was an Ail-American guard at Southern California in 1930 and 1931. NAMED TO TEAM Kansas City (U.R) Bill Reigel of McNeese La. State and Carl Cain of Iowa were named today to the U.S. Olympic basketball team. They join Bill Russell and K. C.
