Cowens Back, So Are Celts
By Dave O'Hara
BOSTON (AP) — Center Dave Cowens, a National Basketball Association superstar, is back — and the defending champion Boston Celtics just may be, too.
Cowens, sidelined with a broken foot suffered in a preseason game in early October, made his 1974-75 debut in an unusual role of a reserve Friday night, sparking the Celtics to a 95-94 comeback victory over the Phoenix Suns before 13,756 fans at the Boston Garden.
The Celtics had a 9-8 record without Cowens and it was no mere coincidence that they lost four one-point games at home with the 6-foot-9 redhead watching helplessly. Things were different against the Suns.
Cowens played eight minutes in two appearances in the first half, then played five minutes in the third period. Then, with Boston trailing 90-87 and 2:15 remaining, he fed Jo Jo White for a basket and, with 1:27 to go, took a pass from John Havlicek underneath for an easy basket. Charlie Scott cashed two free throws for the Suns, but White hit on a baseline jumper and Cowens sank two free throws with four seconds left to nail down the decision.
“I’m in better shape than you guys, but I’m not in basketball shape,” Cowens said kiddingly to reporters in a post-game interview “I was very clumsy. I must have fallen three or four times. I'm just out of Shape. ”
Cowens said he didn t really hurt. Then he went on to say how his feet and ankles were sore from pounding on the floor and his lungs betrayed him because "they haven’t expanded to playing size yet”
Body and Head
“The foot has nothing to do with it now — just my body and my head,” he said “I’m going to have to play it this way for a while as a means of getting into condition Playing five or IO minutes in a game gets you into shape faster than just practicing, but I don’t want to hurt the team. I’m jus)! glad we won.”
Given a long standing ovation when introduced before the game, ('Owens said he appreciated the welcome, but added, “I wouldn’t like to see it again under the same circumstances. ”
For the record, Cowens played 14 minutes, hit on two of four field goal attempts and five of six free throws. He had four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block “Dave still is not in shape1, but he played super just the same,” Boston Coach Tom ficinsohn said. "He’s about 40 per cent right now, but his foot stood up and his conditioning will come around, Near the end is where we have been having trouble and Dave came through with his ability and experience ”
“You have a great deal of confidence in a guy who has been there,” summed up Havlicek in praising Cowens

Miami jumped into a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, lost a second-period score on a dipping penalty, and never threat coed again

MEMPHIS (AP) - The World Football league owners chose a new president Friday and began searching for remedies to financial problems that threaten the* survival of the infant league ( hristopher B. Hemmeter, a co-owner of the Hawaiians, was named president, giving him control over financial matters of the league The owners decided to divide responsibility by creating a position of commissioner, to be filled in early 1975, to oversee football operations.
Hemmeter. a real estate broker, brings a business rep utation and background to his new job that means "we ll have credibility in the financial community . . . which we haven’t had before” and show that the WFL is composed of “responsible people," said John Bassett, chairman of the league s executive committee.
Hemmeter, who will divest himself of his interest in the Hawaiians, will operate from a league office that will be moved from California to New York, Bassett said
Hemmeter succeeds Donald J. Regan, a league co-founder. who temporarily took over the presidency after Gary Davidson resigned last month
Kegan will resume his position as the WFL general counsel.
( aasider Fatarr
The developments were anpounced as owners or their representatives of the league’s IO franchised cities gathered to consider the WFL’s future.
“Nobody believes our problems are insurmountable,” Hemmeter said “I didn’t detect the desire by anyone (at Friday’s meeting) to pull up stakes and leave ”
Bill Putnam, majority owner of the Birmingham Americans, told newsmen the owners had discussed a number of
alternatives to finance the future of the league. The alternatives ranged from “an infusion of money to tightening financial control” to qualify for ownership, but reached no decision
The owners were to meet today with prospective investors and persons who have ex
pressed an interest in owning an existing or expansion franchise, Bassett said no announce! rient of possible ownership changes should lie ex
pected until after the first of the year, although he said no one expressed sentiment at the meeting to drop out
He said, however, it was invisible some weak franchises that could not find new investors would change hands and that some of the prospects could assume control of ex
pansion franchises He said the league could expand to as many as 16 franchies The WFL definitely will go into New York in 1976, he said
Cole Sags in World Golf, S.Africa Leads
4'? 4' J
By William H. Heath
CARACAS (AP) - South Africa’s Bobby Cole let his temper get the best of him and it cost his team first place after the second round of the 22nd annual World Cup Golf Tournament.
South Africa held a one-stroke lead over Japan going into, Friday’s 18th hole but Cole blew a 16-inch putt, wound up with a bogey and the South Africans slipped to a tie with the Japanese Both teams go into today’s third round with five-under-par 275s.
I was so mad at leaving the first putt short that I carelessly missed the next putt,’’ Cole said. “I should have marked it and waited for the others to putt, but instead I went ahead and hit it.
"If you do that you don't deserve to make it. ”
The huge greens on the 6,-763-yard, * par-70 Ugunita Country Club course were slower on Friday but still provided plenty of headaches for the field of 92 players who form two-man teams representing 46 countries.
