10--THE PROGRESS Friday, Feb. 26, 1965 Rangers, Hoop weather is favorable Braves hit tourney Sunshine, rain Saints bask trail N,AIA bid fall on Chiefs in By FRED The sun still shines on a well-used beige-colored building on the Seattle University campus. Inside this domain of waxed maple floor boards, rows of gray bleachers and mezzanine-type offices come the basketball productions, bannering the Jesuit school in major inter- collegiate athletics. Despite the sudden loss of three of its key players, the basket- ball program goes on. Friday, the Chieftains invaded ReDo and toppled the University of Nevada, 89-77, with Tom Workman fin- ishing high for SU with 22 points. The former Blancher High star got ample help from his mates--four of them also Catholic prep products in the persons of Rich Turney (San Joaquin in Fresno), Mike Acres (Blanchet), Jack Tebbs (Alemany in Tujunga, Calif.) and Rick Mathews (O'Dea). They plus Elzle Johnson, Malkin Strong, Tea Cruz and Plummer Loft, members of the traveling squad, and Lenny Bell, Ralph Heyward add Jack Krelger, are the survivors of a shock wave that is now of scandalous interest from coast to coast. With an ll-game streak under their belts, the Chiefs arrived Monday in Logan to meet the Utah State Aggies, themselves mourning over the recent death of All-American Wayne Estes. The meeting was a blow to SU, which went down 71-67. Turney's 19 points, Johnson's 15, Streng's 14 and Lott's 10 tallies were not enough to handle the inspired Aggies. THE LOSS TO a major college team, since Nevada is being considered for the NCAA college division tourney, somewhat showed that the absences of Charlie Williams, Peller Phillips and L. J. Wheeler had been more than just regrettable. The Chiefs with or without the NCAA bid, forestalled through early Thursday afternoon, will try to win No. 19 in what will be a dramatic last home appearance this Friday. And the opponents are the perennial thorns--the University of Portend Pilots. Game time is at 8 p.n. with the shift in site to the Seattle Center Arena. THE CASES OF Williams and Phillips will be heard next Mon- day. The truth will be produced then. Compassion, a needed ingre- dient in this hectic imperscmal enviro'u-nent of ours. has never been said more eloquemly than by the University students Sunday in a declaration, which supported the three expelled players. It read in part: "In the past your actions have merited our respect and trust. We do not now find any reason to withdraw that trust. In the event that the outcome of this incident should be unfavorable to you, we wish it to say that it shall never be our place to judge." Four days after the declaration, Charlie Williams received honorable mention in the United Press International All-America seleions. THE SUN STILL shines but every so often rain comes and this in the form of tears, too: : Northern seniors win CYO awards ELIZABETH BOB FORTIN OZRETICH ence of 300 girls. Son of Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Ozretich, 929 Broad St., Mount Vernon, Bob is president of the CYO Betlingham District and the Mount Vernon teen club. An honor student at Mount Vernon High, he is active in basketball and won the Bausch and Lomb Science Award. Up and in Two youths from the northern deanery have been named CYO Teen-Agars of the Month for January by the Carroll Club of Seattle. They .are Elizabeth Ann lor - tin of Stanwood and Bob Oz- retich of Immaculate Concep- tion CYO Teen Club in Mount Vernon. Both are 17 and high school seniors. Elizabeth is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Fortin, PO Box 81-,4,. Stanwood. Pres- ident of the Arlington-Darring- ton-Stanwood CYO Teen Club, she is an honor student at Stan- wood High.

She also arranged and presented a pra- gram for the Campfire confer- HOLY CROSS' Morrie Manning, 5-2 guard, casts off with a jump shot in a semifinal game against St. Leo's in the recent annum Teen-Age Tacoma Metropolitan Park Board Basketball Tournament. Checking the Wilson High senior is Jerry Emery of St. Leo's with Rich Raico of Holy Cross by Manning. Holy Cross won, 53-31, but lost in the finals to St. Patrick's Greens, 56-29. The senior tourney drew 28 teams from other Tacoma churches and groups. Holy Cross last year won the archdiocesan CYO senior tourney title. m(CYO Photo by Joe Shensky) CORDOVA At long last a National Association of Inter- collegiate Athletics post-season basketball tournament invitation has been extended for the first time to the St. Martin's College Saints in Olympia. The unprecedented NAIA selection of the Benedictine school, playing independent small college ball and without a home floor at that, has been earned after the Saints compiled an 18-game winning season. The bid is certainly a tribute to the coaching, recruiting and rebuilding of SMC basketball aspirations by head coach Jerry Vermillion. It is also a deserved honor to the hard-play of Little All-America candidate Mike Bruener and to John Burnley, Steve Strojan, Terry Monahan, Vic Napoll, Mike Endi- cott, Vince Strojan, John Kiefer, Dick Riehl, Rich Redifer, Gary Kautz and other Saints. With an 18-9 record, discounting Thursday's encounter with Seattle Pacific College (host of the National Collegiate Athletic Association College Division West Coast regionals), the Saints will face Pacific Lutheran University this Saturday in a one- game sudden-death playoff at PLU in Tacoma. WINNER OF THAT match qualifies for the best-of-three series next week with Evergreen Conference champion Central Washington College on the CWC floor in Ellensburg. The survivor for state representation goes on to the national NAIA tourney in Kansas City, Me. SMC has not played PLU this season but has lost twice to CWC, 98-69 and 96-6% in Ellensburg. The Saints' work is cut out for them, SMC HAD SOME slight jolts in the last three games. The Saints lost to SPC, 90-67, in Olympia. Going on to Spokane, SMC fell behind Gonzaga University, 85-67, despite Bruener's 41 points Friday against the Bulldogs. Whitworth College then edged St. Martin's Monday, 67-50; with an injured Bruener making only eight points. Steve Strojan picked up the slack to lead SMC with 13. SMC athletic director Art Acuff said after being notified of the NAIA selection: "None of the playoff games we're involved in will be played in our area because we have no gym of our own and because our spectator following isn't as large as those of either PLU or Central. We're just happy to be in the playoffs." Actually the entire St. Martin's student body and faculty are happy over recent basketball developments. The St. Martin's High School Rangers are also on their way to a second appearance in the State Class A tournament. NO. ONE NEEDS to apologize at the Benedictine campus, which has no adequate gymnasium facilities and waits for a quarter-built structure to be completed, if and when finances are made available. 'HARDER TO BE GOOD' Compassion for teens is needed LONDON (NC)-- Archbishop John Heenan of Westminster has called for compassion toward teen-agers. Life for them is much harder and more complicated than it has been for past generations, the Archbishop told a teachers' conference in London. "This generation is facing a crisis of faith. It is much harder to believe to be good, to keep the moral law. "In our own time," he said, "there have been many on- slaughts on reason. The dig- nity of the human person has been attaeked with unprece- dented savagery. Whole na- tions have denied men and women the right to think for themselves. Culture as well as political liberty has been denied them." No one really doubts that given time man will conquer the difficulties which hitherto have kept him humble in the face of nature, the Archbishop said. "This is my reason for sug- gesting that faith has become more difficult. "I think that to some ex-. tent the struggle to reach the . moon and to send men and women into space conspires so to elevate the power of reason and human endeavor as to make religion less ac- ceptable." R e f e r r i n g specifically to y o u n g people's problems, Archbishop Heenan said: "I cannot imagine boys or girls of 15 in our day would have wanted to discuss birth control. Now in the schools girls want to learn about the Pill." Television ha s introduced problems of behavior which were formerly o u t s i d e the youngsters' scope, he said. Even religious programs on Sunday evenings include cler- gymen who say that fornica- tion is not necessarily wrong.

"If good boys and girls sitting together, and in love, hear perfectly re- spectable clergymen telling them that if they have inter- eourse for good reasons it is permissible, they cannot be blamed as we could had WE committed gross sins." Teachers have to bear this in mind when considering how best to strengthen the young- sters' faith and protect them from the undoubtedly evil in- fluences operating a g a i n s t them, he said. "We must recognize that the attack on faith which be- gins at school will be inten- sified afterwards." Driver What Is 'Defensive Driving'? Q I am told that truck drivers practice "defensive driving." W h a t d o e s this mean? ATe drive defensively is to drive in such a manner as to defend yourself and your vehicle against all possible danger. The defensive driver is the worst kind of a pessimist. He expects, every traffic situation to turn out wrong. As e car approaches him from the opposite direction, he is not unprepared for it to veer without warning into his lane of the road. At each inter- section, it would not astonish him to see some other car come booming through a stop- sign. He even goes through the green light with cautious glances either way, ready for another car to run the red light. If the driver ahead signals a right turn. it wouldn't sur- prise him to see thnt car turn left--or continue straight ahead. He drives as if every other vehicle on the road had an idiot at the wheel--and sooner or later one of them has. No claim is made here that "defensive driving" is t h e easiest way to get from here to there. It requires a high de- gree of physical skill, endur- ance and mental alertness. After two or three hours of this kind of concentration, you arrive at your destination somewhat less than fresh and relaxed . . . also somewhat less than seriously injured or dead.

Ques- tions may be addressed to The Editor or to WMTA, 4101 4th Ave. So., Seattle. 98134) On the post-season h i g h school basketball tournament trail are the St. Martin's Rangers and the Blancher Braves. St. Martin's (15-7) meets Raymond at 9 p.m. this Fri- day in Olympia for the final of the Southwest Sub-District Tournament. SHOULD St. Martin's lose, the Rangers become the No. 3 entry in the State Class A Tournament March 3-6 at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma. Should St. Martin's win, the Rangers pl a y Castle Rock. southern division champ, at 9 p.m. this Saturday in Mark Morris High gym in Logview to determine the ,number one and two slate entries from the district. Whichever way, Dale Behles' Rangers are in the state tournament, marking their second consecutive ap- pearance in the persons of Jim Hannam, Jeff Feeney, Jeff Smith and Jeff Reynolds. St. Martin's began its tour- nament drive with a convinc- ing 87-68 victory Friday over Ilwaco, Hannam scored a school record point-total o 38 points that night. Then Tues- day the Rangers downed Elma, 67-43, to ice a tourney berth. BUT BLANCHET, Northwest Catholic Association champion and Catholic Seattle Catholic series titlist, will have to do somq more winning to earn its wayto the State Class AA tour- nament regionals March 12-13 in University of Washington's Edmundson Pavilion and the tournament finals March 19-20 in the Seattle Center Coliseum. George Morrison's Braves (16-3) will meet Burlington at 9 p.m. Friday at Cascade High to begin the quarterfin- als of the eight-team North- west District playoffs. Should Bla nchet win, the next opponent will be either Everett. Marysville or Mount Vernon for the semifinals this Saturday also in Everett. Blancher by beating Seattle Prep, 72-69, Tuesday at Seattle U is 6-0 in the NCA and 4-0 in city series play. GENE DUNCAN, Blancher's high-scoring s e n i o r forward with a 20-plus average was just a sophomore on the Braves' 1963 state championship team, led by now SU's Tom Work- man.
