Baker meets Carl Flood of the CYO, while in the other heavyweight bout, Johnny Lynch of Olympic Club faces Randy Melton of Optimist. 4:10 Mile Disappoints Delany and Hungarian NEW YORK. Feb. 17 (JP).— Take It from Ron Delany, he’s sorry. Take it from Istvan Rozsa volgi, he’s sorry. But the fact remains that between them they could do no better than a “sorry" 4:10 for the mile in New York Ath letic Club track meet Saturday night. Delany watched Rozsavolgi, Rozsavolgi watched Delany. and the other five runners in the race watched both. That about sums it up. The race was a weird one with Delany taking on the unusual role of pacemaker. Rozsavolgi. the Hungarian who holds world records in the 1,000. 1,500 and 2.000 meters, jockeyed along with him. At the end, Rozsavolgi, tried to outsprint Delany. but Ron, the Olympic 1,500 - meter champion from Ireland and Villanova, won pretty much &3 he pleased by about four yards. Couldn’t Take Chance “Istvan doesn’t seem to know how to run an 11-lap indoors,” Delany said, “and I didn’t have much trouble. I am disap pointed in the 4:10 clocking. “I laid back wondering when Rozsavolgi was going to make his move. He is a 4-minute miler and I couldn’t take any chances.” Rozsavolgi said: “I am dis appointed. The heavy air in Madison Square Garden both ered me more than I thought it would, and when it was over my throat was burning. “I ran badly, and I am sure with some more practice on boards I can do much better. I will aim at 4:05 in the Na tional championships. Neither the turns nor the crowd both ered me. Delany is a wonderful tactical runner. He knows just how to keep his pace for the big last lap.” Jim Grelle of Oregon tried to steal the race while Delany and Rozsavolgi were jockeying. He didn’t make it.

Tex., Feb. 17 UP). Club professional Bill Johnston, who plays only the winter tour—and not too much of that—is showing the big names of golf a thing or two today. He is the only player winning money in all tourna ments this year. The Provo, Utah, municipal course pro, a deadly swinger off the tee and as imperturbable as a marble statue, won his first tournament in two winters of trying yesterday as he galloped in with a 3-under-par 68 for a total of 274 on 72 holes and $2,000 first money in the Texas open. ‘ It vaulted the slender John ston from 24th place to eighth in the official money winning list. He has banked $3,518.33, winning from SIOO up to the $2,000 he got for overtaking Dave Marr of Cedarhurst, Long Island, on the final round of the Texas Open and finishing three strokes ahead with his 10-un der-par 274. . Johnston heads for Houston and the Houston $30,000 Invi tational today with a stroke average of 71 for 24 rounds of golf. Most of the field that pounded along behind him in this storied tournament "also is on the way to Houston. Among them is Bob Rosburg of Napa, Calif., the great stretch runner who almost won the Texas Open with a great 6-under-par 65 on the final 18 holes. He wound up in second place at 277 and got $1,500.

Albie knocked off Alvin Dark of the Cardinals, the defending champion, 4 and 2, yesterday morning.—AP Wirephoto. Senators' Rookie Outfielder Wins Baseball Golf Crown MIAMI. Fla., Feb. 17 UP).— Albie Pearson, Washington’s diminutive rookie outfielder, battled John Gray of Phila delphia to the 19th hole yester day before winning the Major League division of the annual baseball players’ golf tourna ment. The 5-foot-6 Pearson won on the 19th green when Gray took a bogey 5 after missing a two foot putt. Gray is 6 feet, 4 inches. Gray was 1 up as the after noon round reached the 16th hole. Pearson sank a 25-foot putt on the 16th to tie Gray, but fell behind on the next hole when his opponent went 1 up again. A 15-foot putt on the 18th gave Pearson another tie.

The top eight teams in the 18-team league play in the tournament. THE EVENING STAR, Washington, D. C. •• HOWIT, nWSAST IT. IBM Many Races Confused In Cage Homestretch By tbe /tnoctaM Pren With only three weeks re maining in the regular season, the basketball races in at least half a dozen major conferences are still In a state of confusion. They’re all out for coveted bids to the NCAA post-season tournament, but so far only three definitely are in. Con necticut, as the champion of the Yankee Conference, is all set. So are Idaho State, winner of the Rocky Mountain Con ference, and Oklahoma State, selected as an at-large team. The tournament is composed of 16 conference champions, plus eight-at-large clubs. The preliminary rounds are sched uled to get under way during the week of March 9. with the finale in Louisville March 22. There are some heavy favor ites, of course. For example. Cincinnati (9-1) is the choice irt the Missouri Valley. The Bearcats play Drake tonight. Yet. with all their power, they’d better not slip, because Bradley is right behind with an 8-2 mark. Then there Is the Big Eight, where Kansas State, top team in tbe Associated Press poll last week, remains undefeated in league competition (7-0). State pulled away when Kansas lost two games during Wilt Cham berlain’s illness. The Jawhawks will try to keep their slun hopes alive' tonight against Missouri. But in the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Big Ten, the Southwest Conference, the Sky line, the Pacific Coast and the Mid-American there is nothing but uncertainty. Here is a brief rundown on them: ATLANTIC CO AST—This one has a conference tournament at the end of the season in which the last-place finisher could wind up with the NCAA j bid. But that's unlikely At the ] moment, Duke, North Caro lina, North Carolina State and Maryland are in a dogfight. I Duke (9-2) appears to have the best chance. BIG TEN—Michigan State, the preseason choice, is in first place by a hair with a 6-3 record. Indiana (5-3) is sec ond. The Spartans play Michi gan tonight, and Indiana goes against Ohio State, so there could be a new leader by the end of the night’s operations. SOUTHWEST—OnIy Baylor is mathematically out of the running. All the others are very much in the fight. Arkansas is half a game ahead of Ricg and Texas Tech In the wild scram ble. SKYLlNE—Defending cham pion Brigham Young also is in a position where even a slight stumble could mean disaster. Wyoming and Colorado are just a half-game back. PACIFIC COAST—A jumble. If any team looks good in the pack, it’s California, which won it last year. The Bears have been a good defensive club all season and appear to have learned how to score, as shown by their 80-62 decision over Southern California Saturday. They play Stanford tonight while UCLA, another main con tender, clashes with Washing ton. MID AMERICAN—Miami of Ohio hasn’t been beaten in league play yet and has won eight games. But that’s no comfort. The Redskins still must play Ohio U.. which-has been beaten on its home floor just once this year. The game will be at Ohio U. Thursday. The Southern Conference, perhaps the most formful in the country (West Virginia al ways wins it), also has a tourna ment to decide the NCAA tournament team. In the Southeastern Conference, Ken tucky (9-1) is going after its 18th title but still must play Alabama and Auburn, each boasting a seven-game winning streak. The Ivy League usually sends an at-large team, and that should be Dartmouth, even though the Hanover Indians suffered their first league de feat Saturday after winning eight in a row. Yale beat them, 70-67. Robertson and Wilt Trying to Gain on Baylor Tonight By the Auoclsted Press Cincinnati’s Oscar Robertson and Kansas’ Wilt Chamberlain get a chance tonight to close in on pace-setting Elgin Baylor | of Seattle in the three-way bat- I tie for individual basketball ’ scoring honors. Robertson must score 59 points against Drake to match Baylor’s average of 34.4 points in 19 contests. And Chamber lain must get 89 against Mis souri to deadlock Baylor. Se attle is idle until Thursday. The Cincinnati star’s pace dipped a 10th of a point to 33.2 when he tallied 30 against de fensive-minded Oklahoma State Saturday. Chamberlain, in third place, boosted his average, to 31.3 with 34 points against lowa State. The leaders: _ O. PC, FT Pts Av*. Baylor. Seattle ..19 241 172 654 34.4 Robertson.
