BOSTON (AP) Boston Celtics
owner Walter Brown was still
steaming today about the incident
at Lexington, Ky., Tuesday night
when two of his Negro players
were refused service at a hotel
coffee shop.
"The Celtics will never play an
other exhibition game in the
South or any other place where
they might be embarrassed,"
Brown said. "I didn't want to go
down there this time. I had prom
ised that after an unpleasant in
cident at Charlotte, N.C., previ

"I'm not so hungry for money
that I'd arrange games where

earlier loss, and will be fresh from

championship at Medford.
The featured game of the after
noon will be between Bud Bishop,
tuts club champ, and 'Tricky
Dick Stevenson, the No. 1 ace of
the Roseburg Bowl team. The con

climax the day of action.
A thrilling contest is expected in

Arlo Jacklin. Bingham, a top de
fensive player, replaces Joe Foote
in the Elks' lineup.
Jacklin, though playing in the
No. 4 position, .is rated next to

A full slate of Umpqua Valley
League action is set for the week
end, with the spotlight falling on
the battle for third place between
the Myrtle Creek Vikings and the
Oakland Oakers.
The Vikings will Invade the home
of the Oakers for a Saturday after
noon game at 1:30. The Viks will
take a 2-1-1 record into the outing,
while the home club has a 3 1
league mark. Oakland currently
rests in third place, while Myrtle
Creek holds down fourth in the
Friday the lone league encount
er will be a night game between
the Sutherlin Bulldogs and the
glendale Pirates. Kickoff time at
Glendale is set for 8. Also to bt
played at 8 Friday night is a non
counter with the Riddle Irish host
ing the Powers Cruisers.
Glide Eyes First
In addition to the Myrtle Creek-
Oakland game Saturday, the Glide
Wildcats will get a chance to move
out in front of the Irish in the UVL
standings when they host the
Douglas Trojans. Game time at
Glide is 2 p.m.
Sutherlin, still shell-shocked
from last week's loss to Illinois
Valley in non-league competition,
will be trying to bounce back Fri
day when the Bulldogs travel
south to clash with the Glendale
Pirates. The Bulldogs sport a 1-3
league record to rest in fifth place,
while the Pirates are winless in
four league outings.
Sophomore quarterback Mike
Oulette is expected to pace the
visiting Bulldogs as he engineers
the drives and handles the pass
ing. Leading the ground attack will
be fullback Paul T reman and half
back Don Goertzen. In the forward
wall the Bulldogs will have a nu
cleus of veterans to lead the
Players Young
Glendale will have mostly young
players on the field as the Pirates
are building for future years in
UVL competition. Leon Smith will
probably start at quarterback for
the Bucs, while Larry Robison and
Robert Pope are expected to see
plenty of backfield action. Up front
the Pirates will also have several
newcomers in the already inexper
ienced line.
Riddle, taking its league bye.
will be heavily favored to dump
the invading Powers 11 Friday.
The Irish were setting the pace in
the UVL until last week's loss to
Glide, but are expected to bounce
back strong.
The Irish will have Ron Weakley
calling the signals, while Bill
Markham, Don Fisher and Gary
Paetz round out the backfield. The
line will be led by veterans Phil
Newcomb and John Cassidy.
Powers will have Dennis Get
chell calling the signals and throw
ing the passes. Leading receivers
for Getchell will be Lou Lambert,
"Shorty" Lawson and Jerry Adam
son, while fullback Jack Hoffman
does the majority of the running.
Visiters Favored
Saturday's clash between the Vi
kings and the Oakers will find the
visitors entering as a slight favor
ite. The Vikings have lost to Rid
dle and fought to a tie with Glide
in UVL play, while the Oakers
lone league loss was early in the
season to Riddle.
The Viks" rugged line is expect
ed to be the difference with Mike
Shirtcliff, Bill James and Bill
Kaebern filling the center of the
forward wall, each weighing well
over 200. The backfield for Myrtle
Creek will have Ken Graf calling
signals, while Steve Newman, and
Hany Clarke do the majority of
the ball carrying.
Oakland will rely on its speed
to upset the Viks. Leading the
charging Oakers are brothers Ker-
ney and Mickey Manley. Also rat
ed as strong threats are Jim Arch
er and Bo Cannon. The Oaker line
will be outweighted, but the spir
ited group under coach Chuck Hal
stead is expected to provide a
thriller for the borne fans.
Glide No.
Glide's Wildcats, ranked as the
No. 9 A-2 team in the state on the
Oregonian's poll, will get their
chance to bypass the Riddle Irish
for the league lead when they host
the Douglas Trojans Saturday, The
'Cats dumped the Irjsh 20-0 last,
week to remain the only undefeat
ed team in the UVL though a 12
12 tie with Myrtle Creek mars
their record. However, the Irish
had played one more game so they
held onto first place by a slim one
point margin.
With the Irish out of league play,
the Wildcats, who have a 3-0-1 rec
ord, will move out in front if they
are able to handle the invading
Trojans. The Trojans currently
rest in sixth place with a 1-4 rec
ord, but will have upset on their
mind Saturday.
Backfitld Fleet
The powerful Glide 11 will have
Doug Coplin filling the quarterback
slot, while Glen Fortune, Marshall
McCormack and Lyle Charon com
plete the fleetfooted backfield.
Added reserve power for the
speedy 'Cats will come from Dar
rell Cellers who alternates at a
halfback spot. The Glide line,
though not big, is rough, and the
loss of Dick Reese should not cause
too many worries against the
young Trojans.
Douglas will have freshman quar
terback Danny Withers passing in
an attempt to upset the Wildcats.
Along with Withers, the Trojan
backfield will be composed of Ter
ry Peterson, Floyd Meredith and
either Larry Smith or Ricky Shaf
er. The Douglas forward wall will
have few veterans in action as
mostly sophomores and freshmen
will see action for the invading
Fremont Scheduled
For Myrtle Creek
The Fremont Junior High grid
ders will tangle with the Myrtle
Creek Hornets (seventh and eighth
graders) for the second time this
season today at Myrtle Creek.
Iremont will be trying to dupli
cate its 34-0 victory of Oct. 7 over
the Hornets, and will be fresh
from a pair of victories over Suth
erlin. The Fremont eighth graders
dropped Sutherlin's 11 by a 13 7
count after the seventh graders
had won 34-7.
The Hornets will still be shooting
for their first win as they lost 7-0
to St. Joseph's football squad last
week. Myrtle Creek will take the
field without the services of first
string halfback Dennis Birenbaum
who suffered a cracked collar
bone playing "touch football" in a
physical education class.
While the seventh and eighth
graders of Fremont were win
ning last weekend, the ninth grad
ers were unable to follow suit as
they dropped a 34-0 decision to
