THEY ALSO SERVED...
If they could do little else, the 38 lonely Hungarians in the now almost deserted Olympic Village at Melbourne furnished, along with the thousands of other refugees in Vienna and elsewhere, a valuable and poignant reminder of their country's fate. Although they had been cleared by Australian immigration authorities and made proper application for asylum in the U.S., they were still held up by Washington red tape. They could only sit and wait

THE BRUINS BOUNCE BACK
The most remarkable and unexpected development of the National Hockey League campaign is the Boston Bruins. A fifth-place patsy last season, they have been leading the league since November 8. This swift renascence was credited largely to: 1) Coach Milt Schmidt, who decided that teams coached by nice guys seldom finish on top and transformed himself into a blustering martinet; 2) new and eminently helpful faces in Defensemen Allan Stanley and Jack Bionda, Center Jack Caffery, Right Wing Larry Regan; 3) the switch of sturdy Doug Mohns from forward to defense, where he has already scored more points than last season; and 4) Terry Sawchuk (below), who, with dependable checking in front of him, is demonstrating that he has no peer in the tenacious art of goal tending.
Skidding in front of the puck, Boston Goalie Terry Sawchuk makes a plucky, able save off the stick of Montreal's Boom Boom Geoffrion in a 1-1 tie at Boston Garden. Sawchuk was down again last week, this time in a battle with infectious mononucleosis, but is expected back by December 27. The fortunes of the high-riding Bruins depend to a large part on how they fare until the skillful goalie, who holds the modern NHL career record of 68 shutouts, can put on his pads again
