Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 15, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa U.S. Loses To Russia 3rd in Meet SAN JUAN, P H. (AP) -| Despite fielding a team which Coach Vladimir Kondrashin in sisted “is not as good as Mon ich,“ the Soviet Union has been crowned World Basketball Champion after defeating the United States 105-94 in the final game. The Russian victory Sunday came from a team missing four key players on the unit whiclr won the 1972 Olympics at Munich by beating the United States by a point. The Americans entered Sun day’s final round of games un beaten after a 91 -88 victory over defending champion Yugo slavia. The Yugoslavians had earlier beaten the Russians 82-79 With the Americans, Russians and Yugoslavians all finishing with 6-1 records, the I standings were figured on the point spreads involving games among the three. That put Yugoslavia in second place after a 79-71 victory over Spain Sunday. The Soviets had gained a halftime tie at the foul line as the Americans outshot them by seven field goals in the half Tile Russians then took control of the game in the second half as the U.S. saw three of its tallest players—7-foot Richard Kelley, 6-11 Joe Meriweather and 6 8 Tom Boswell—foul out of the game.

S. Auto club isn t around this time, but the Falstaff IOO is. We’re pleased on both accounts. Indeed, the Falstaff KH) is an open competition race and. from what we’ve already seen this season, Tuesday’s running of the 2nd annual dirt track classic at Hawkeye Downs promises all the excitement that stock car racing allows. Officially, there are IO entries and all have raced one time or another this year at the Downs—the half-mile track where champions race. The latter isn t just an advertising slogan, as any fan who’s witnessed the wheel-to-wheel and bumper-to-bumper action will tell you. Man, they run and thev run hard and fast. But, we digress. What about USAC, the circuit that put on the Falstaff IOO a year ago? In fairness, that organization held a decent race, but a dozen machines never has and never will make for a complete racing program. And the financial rip-off bordered on the incredible. Falstaff lost money, a lot of it, an embarrassing fact because the net proceeds were designed for a local charity, the Cancer fund. Still. Falstaff contributed a $500 check. Yes. USAC wanted a return engagement this year. The answer was an unequivocable “no”. But local Falstaff distributor Keith Fleck, whose idea spurred the first race, didn’t want the idea to die. “I thought, after a lot of consideration, that this race could be a success if we opened it up to our local and area drivers.” Fleck said. “They put on a great race program and the Falstaff IOO would give them an opportunity to race for a lot more money than they normally do. “And, for the most part, we'd be keeping the money at ‘home’.” Keokuk's Ramo Stott, who finished second in the USAC point standings last year, several times has told us he was embarrassed over the 1973 happenings. Maybe that’s one of the main reasons Ramo wanted to return this year— and he will. He should be competitive, too, driving Ed Sanger’s 1972 Chevelle. Stott, by the way, finished third in this year's Daytona 500.

But, if you like a private wager, remember the names of Curt Hansen of Dike and Verlin Eaker and Darrell Duke, both of Cedar Rapids. Hansen is the current point leader at the Downs, with Eaker running a close second. Both have taken four checkered flags at the Downs this season. Dake has won twice and has been the most consistent qualifier. setting fast time on four different occasions. Darrel also is co-holder of the track one-lap record with a :24.57 clocking. Fred Horn of Marion is the only other driver to win a feature at the Downs in 1974. We understand some persons are a bit confused by the “Falstaff IOO” tag. Well, for reasons of tradition Fleck decided to retain the title, but the feature will be a 50-lapper. That, in itself, should guarantee flat-out racing. The $6,500 purse imcludes $1,000 in lap money, with the feature winner pocketing $1,000. Time trials at 7 p.m. will open the action, which includes a trophy dash, four heats and a consolation. Again, a local charity—the Heart fund, this time— will benefit from the net receipts. We suspect there will be some this time. Tickets will be available at the Downs ticket office all day Tuesday. Nielson Finishes 2nd To Heldmar in State CEDAR FALLS (AP) - Bill Heldmar of Des Moines won the 72-hole .state men’s amateur golf tournament Sunday by finishing with a par 288. four strokes ahead of second-place finisher I^on Nielsen of Belle Plaine.
