It was t an easy statement for him to make but Sid Borgia who really does t know any other Way was still calling Mem As he sees pm. A the truth is the truth Quot said Borgia. A basketball is going to miss red Auerbach. I done to Admire him for some of the things he does but i respect him for always trying to win. He a the Leo Durocher of basketball. He was one of the men who cast the Mold that built the during his 18 years As referee in the National basketball association the fiery Borgia had five times As Many run ins with Auerbach As he did with anyone else in the circuit. He set some kind of record for standing toe to toe with the sulphuric Short fused coach of the Boston celtics and kicking him out of Ball games. When they turned Borgia out to pasture two years ago and a took the sneakers away from me against my wishes Quot by easing him into Semi retire ment As supervisor of the a bad a referees there were Many who Felt that Auerbach and the celtics management had a lot to do with the move. A a that a neither Here nor there Quot said Borgia who made it Clear he did no to wish to talk about it. The 49 year old Borgia operates the Barizon Florist shop now and still manages to see two or three games a week. A i eat my heart out every time because in a not out there working on the floor Quot he said. The reason Auerbach s name came up was because they gave him a Day at Boston Garden sunday As a prelude to his forthcoming retirement As coach at the end of this season. Typically after sundays ceremony the celtic coach got into two arguments with the referees and Drew his 18th technical foul of the season. A Sauerbach feels a noisy Axle gets the most grease Quot said Borgia. A but that formula does no to work for him with every referee. That a Why so Many technical fouls Are called against him. A whenever anyone asks me How Good a basketball coach he really is i say his record Speaks for itself. Do i think he a gotten too big for his britches Well of he a too big ifs Only because he has been allowed to become that big. A i done to know How Many times i threw him out of Ball games. In a sure it has to be a record. It was a Battle of complexes Between us i suppose. I stood for what i thought was right and he stood for what he Felt was Borgia probably was the most conscientious referee during his time in the Aba and generally acknowledged As the Best at his Job. There was one thing about Auerbach that still rankles Little Sid. A the has been quoted As saying that i wait for the Day the celtics would lose the championship Quot said Borgia. A not Only was that statement ridiculous it also was unfair. How could i possibly have Felt that Way and remained a referee 18 years in the league Quot during the time he was officiating bad weather always was a problem for Borgia in his travels from City to City. Now in the Flower business bad red s Day a embarrassing j Clas lakers real celts Boston up a everybody had presents for Arnold red Auerbach on his special a Day Quot at Boston Garden. But he could have done without the Licking the los Angeles lakers gave his Boston celtics and without the technical foul referee John Vanak gave him. Auerbach whose Public displays of emotion generally Are limited to verbal assaults on National basketball association officials admitted he was a touched Quot by sunday s nationally televised ceremonies. A yeah it was pretty embarrassing Quot he told writers after being honoured As the most successful coach in professional basketball history. He stay off the fact that the lakers had beaten his eight time champions 120-110. A they did everything right and we be got so Many injuries we do anything Quot Auerbach said. A a it a awfully hard to win on one of these i know my Guys tried their hardest. I always know that much Quot the Aba coaching Dean said. Auerbach was honoured both because the celtics earned him his 1,000th career coaching Victory on Jan. 12 against the same lakers and because he will retire from Active coaching at the end of the current season. A this has been the toughest year of All. I thought that when you got older losing would get easier. But instead its getting tougher. In a too impatient. This is a Young Many a game a a he said of pro basketball coaching. A a you be got to get up just like the a i done to care what the score was Quot Auerbach a Boss club owner Marvin Kratter consoled him. A today you were a the celtics whose Eastern Aba Lead was Cut to three games Over Philadelphia though Cincinnati was also losing invade the royals Home ground tuesday night and play at san Francisco twice at los Angeles and at san Francisco again before returning to the Garden. Boston which did no to score from the floor for the first three minutes and 40 seconds trailed the lakers by As much As 16 Points while bowing to los Angeles for the first time at Boston this season. With Sam Jones and Tom Sanders benched by injuries and Bill Russell hobbling on an injured leg the celtics staged their Best Challenge in the fourth Quarter to Cut the Laker Lead to four Points. But Jerry West limited to five baskets through the first 45 minutes by k. C. Jones guarding tossed in three baskets to fire the winning los Angeles spurt. If the game had gone much longer los Angeles might have been in trouble. Both of the lakers top scorers Rudy la Russo 26 and Leroy Ellis 25 had fouled out. Bot West with a final 22 Points Walt hazzard with 19, Elgin Baylor with la and Bob Boozer with ten spread the winning attack and carried it the rest of the Way. On the celtics Side of the Ledger Auerbach collected a roomful of gifts including 1,000 pennies while Larry Siegfried filling in for the ailing Sam Jones canned 26 Points and John Havlicek had 22 More. Three other celtics hit the double figures but it Wasny to enough to give Auerbach Victory no. 1,106�?the one he wanted most.

Palm Beach Fla. Up a the new Atlanta Falcons were desperately searching for support from other National football league clubs today As the league opened its Winter meetings. The Falcons who must pick up the nucleus for the first team which will play in the 1966 season were finding out that the other 14 teams did no to plan to be As generous As they had earlier anticipated. The Falcons Are to get three players from each of the other 14 clubs for a total of 42 veterans. These together with the players acquired through the College draft and those signed As free agents Are to make up the training roster for the team which becomes the 15th member of the nil next fall. It was first believed that each club would freeze 25 of the 40 players who were on their Active roster at the close of the 1965 season and that the Falcons would be Able to select their three from the 15 remaining. But it was becoming obvious by late sunday night that the clubs were More inclined to set the figure no lower than 32 on the freeze list and possibly As High As 34. This would mean that the 42 veterans which the Falcons would select would be taken from players who had seen Little action for their present teams. The week Long meeting was to get underway at to . Today. The first Day s session was expected to be devoted almost entirely to routine reports by various league committees and the pressing question of How Many players the Falcons would have a shot at was not expected to be decided until tuesday. The Falcons then will have until probably thursday to Complete their choices. The Only other burning Issue before this years meeting is the selection of a 16th team to Complete the expansion move started when Atlanta was admitted to the nil last year with play to begin in 1966. The other team will not actually begin play until 1967 and it was clearly indicated that although discussions about the expansion will come up at the meeting any final decision wont be made until later.

While the tie did Little to Toronto s 6-3 winning margin Over the Bruins this season the single Point it produced put them into a tie with the rangers. There had to be bad news however As club officials indicated Ted greens absence will be even longer than originally believed. The rugged Bruin defens Eman was released from the Hospital saturday but the knee ligament injury that knocked him out of action will probably keep him on the sidelines for another three weeks. The probable schedule reads one More week in the cast another week in the Whirlpool and at least a third week of Light skating.
