It'i too bad for the Los Angeles
Dodgers that the National League
txnnant race isn t settled on pa
per for in that case they'd have
it all wrapped up.
This was the same case last
year at this time. On paper and
in the books of the oddsmakers
the Dodgers looked like the class
of the league.
On the iield, however, It was
the Cincinnati Reds who came on
to win and beat the second-place
Dodgers bv four games.
General Manager Buzzy Bavasl
and field manager Walter Alston
are determined not to let It hap
pen again. They don t think it
will because they have what they

NEW YORK (UPD - St. John's
and Bradley, two seeded teams
are favored to win tonight and
advance Into the semifinal of the
National Invitation Basketball
Tournament at Madison Square
St. John's Is the heavy choice
over Holy Cross while Bradley is
a slight favorite over Duquesne
in quarter-final games. The win
ners then will meet Thursday

of Chicago on Uie samo program.
The Redmen, rated No. 1 in tlio
East, have won the NIT cham
pionship three times whllo the
Braves from Peoria, 111., have
captured two titles. Both teams
drew first round byes In the cur
rent tourney.
Foley HC's Star
St. John's will be out to stop

points in the Crusaders' 72-71 op

Coach Joe Lapchlck of St. John's
nays, "Maybe I should leu my
five guys to cover the other four
guys on Holy Cross and let Jack
Foley roam. After all, he's going
to score 30 to 50 points anyway
no matter what we do.
Foley averaged more than 33
points a game as mnnenip to the
nation's top scorer, Bill McGill of
Utah, mis season.
Depend On Ellis
St. John's will depend on 6-10
Loroy Ellis to provide it with re
bounding and scoring strength.
Lapchick said ha plans to use
rugged Willie Hall or Kevin
Loughery on the strlngbean Foley.
Bradley, representing the lough
Missouri Valley Conference, will
rely on All-America Chet (The

an early season loss to Duquesne.

five players in the N.L. draft and
the sale of second baseman Char

Lost Three Pitchers
The Dodgers lost three pitchers
Roger Craig, Dick Farrell and
Jim Golden and two first base
men Gil Hodges and Norm
Larker In the draft. For Neal
they got Lee Walls, who can play
the outfield or third base, and
"That $100,000 Isn't going to
help us on the playing field, but
we think Walls will and that we
have kids who will do better for
us than Craig, Farrell and Golden
did," explained Alston. "We also
have to come up with a first
baseman. But we wouldn't have
put Hodges and Larker on our
draft list it we didn t think we
had someone to take over the
That someone could be Frank
Howard or Ron Fairly. Both are
outfielders who were used part of
the time at first last season.
The Dodgers' big hope, of
course, is that Howard will final-
ly make It big. Last season he
was used sparingly, but came
along fast when he played every
day at the tail end ot uie year.
Tagged as a coming home run
champion, he hit only 15 homers
and drove in only 45 runs. Fairly,
also used infrequently until near
the end of the season, wound up
hitting .322 with 10 HR's and 48
As for their pitching, they have
to come up with four hurlers to
back up their big four starters
left handers Johnny Podres and
Sandy Koufax and right handers
Don Drysdale and Stan Williams
and No. 1 and 2 bullpen punch
in right hander Larry Sherry and
southpaw Ron Perranoski.
Tops In Strikeouts
All of them can fire that ball
and form the greatest group of
strikeout pitchers in the league.
Podres and Koufax each won 18
games, with Podres striking out
124 and Koufax 269. Williams won
15 games with 205 strikeouts and
Drysdale 13 while whiffing 182
batters. Sherry was 4-4 with 79
strikeouts and Perranoski 7-5 with
56 strikeouts.
Ed Roebuck, who was out most
of last season with a sore arm;
rookies Joe Moellcr, who won 20
and lost 9 with Reno, Greenville
and Spokane, and Phil Ortega,
who was 8-14 at Spokane, look
like the best bets to take up the
pitching slack.
It will be John Roscboro behind
the plate with Norm Sherry,
brother of Larry, behind him.
Junior Gilliam will be at sec
ond with rookie Larry Burrlght,
a .291 hitter at Atlanta, behind

Wally Moon Is the only outfield
er sure of full time duty. The vet
eran Duke Snider will be used as
much as possible, but isn't likely
to play in more games than he
did last season 85.
The Davis boys, Tommy and
Willie, also will see outfield duty.
Both were disappointments last
year but the word on them Is
that eventually they are going to
become stars.

ey from the manager of former
welterweight champion Don Jor

Circuit Court of Appeals.
Douglas said he based his action
on possible danger to witnesses in
a new trial if Carbo were allowed
bail, because Carbo, as "the al

most should he be faced with a
new trial."
He said this was an appropriate
consideration, although the circuit
court ruled it was not.
However, he ordered Joseph

The Bend Lava Bear baseball
team, defending Intermountain
Conference champions, faces one
of the toughest schedules in the

New coach Bill Bauer, former
Linfield College player, has had
his squad hustling for several days
in preparation for the opening con
test March 30 at Madras, with a
double bill the following afternoon
at Klamath Falls.
Bauer looks for strong hitting
from several veteran infielders
and. outfielders, but, in the im
portant pitching and catching de
partment, it's strictly a question
of how fast the newcomers de
velop. Lost via graduation were catch

features a relatively light boxing
week will be televised by ABC
TV beginning at 10 p.m. EST.
Saturday's, bout completes a se
ries of three In which the title
has twice changed hands. Griffith
won it from Paret by knocking
him out in the 13th round at Mi

then lost it back to the Cuban

Kemple is a sophomore, with
Hamilton a freshman.
The pitching staff is also load
ed with newcomers with right
handers Barry Hebert, Rich

Paul Wardlaw and lefthander Jim
Matson. All but Matson, a sopho
more, are juniors.
Hebert saw quite a bit of action
for last summer's Legion team,
while Wardlaw pitched a little for
the Bruins last spring.
But if there is a scarcity of ex
perience in the pitching and catch
ing ranks, there are several vets
back at the other spots.
At first base is Jan Bowlus, a
two-year letterman, with junior
