"I was looking for the free throws; it was just luck that the ball went in." A horde of reporters were gathered in the New York trainer's room where the six- foot-six DeBusschere, an ice pack on his sore right knee, was describing the key play in the Knicks' 103-98 victory over Los Angeels Lakers Tuesday night at Madison Square Gar- den. The Lakers had cut a 21-point New York lead down to two, 94- 92, with one minute to go. Los Angeles was surging, having scored eight points in a row. The Knicks were disorganized. Walt Frazier had fouled out, and none of the Knicks were shooting well. JUMPSHOT MISSED Knick forward Bill Bradley tried a jump shot from the right side. It missed, bounding high off the rim.

"He and Wilt went up, but neither got control of the ball. When they came down, that's when I went up. I just grabbed it and put it back up. "Wilt reacted by grabbing me. The shot I threw up was just a hope shot. I was playing for the foul, since Wilt had both his arms around me." .The ball went in, and the foul was called on Chamberlain. "It was the 7-1 Chamberlain said of the foul. "He just had better position than me; all I could do was foul him." SANK CRUSHER DeBusschere calmly sank the free throw, and the Knicks were ahead 97-92 with 48 seconds to go.

(AP) Claims that graphite-shafted clubs are knocking golf balls farther and a change in dimpl- ing is making golf balls fly far- ther than ever has caused con- cern with the United States Golf Association The sport's ruling body in the U.S. announced Tuesday it is conducting a series (A tests to see that golf remains a game Of skill and innovations do not make existing courses obsolete. "For some years the U.S. Golf Association has been con- cerned about the potential for increasing distance in the game of golf through new develop- ments in ball and club manu- the USGA said in a formal statement. It added: "The USGA fears that recent aerodynamic developments in ball dimpling and the in- troduction cf graphite shafts may render existing distance controls inadequate." The USGA said its current tests would be made with both men and machines, indoors and outdoors, to determine the ef- fect of these latest improve- ments. While it did not say so, it in- dicated that some equipment may be banned to keep the game within bounds. At present, the distance of the ball is controlled by sirs, weight and initial velocity restrictions. There are no comparable re- strictions on clubs although the indentations on the face of the clubs must meet certain stand- ards. In recent months, many of the touring pro golfers have shifted to graphite shafts, which are said to be much lighter than steel or aluminum and which permit the head to go through the ball with greater impact. Exponents of the new club shafts are boasting distances of 20 and 30 yards more than clubs of other material. Also, ball makers have begun ex- perimenting with the dimples on the ball to improve accuracy and reduce wind resistance. The USGA said it had ex- pressed its concern to equip- ment makers in Rochester, N.Y., in 1968 and repeated a warning to all manufacturers In general letters mailed in May, 1969, and September, 1970. The USGA said the latter let- ter dealt specifically with the moment of inertia and radius of gyration effects on the flight of halls. The tests, the USGA added, are to determine if a distance bonus has been achieved through the latest de- velopments.
