The world was different then. World War II was over. Evil had been vanquished. The boys were coming home. And Winston Churchill, still an international hero even though he'd been voted out of office, chose an unlikely stage from which to warn of a new world threat.

Unable to capitalize on several scoring chances late in the game, the Cal State Northridge softball team fell victim to Missouri's productive sixth inning in a 3-1 loss in an NCAA Division I regional Saturday at UCLA's Easton Stadium. "We played well and went down in a fight," Coach Janet Sherman said. Missouri went on to beat Minnesota, 3-0, in the fourth elimination game and will face top-seeded and top-ranked UCLA (58-6) in a championship game at 1 p.m.

Derrick Chievous, Missouri's All-American forward, has long faced what would be a dilemma. He aspires to be a radio-television reporter, but he often refuses to give interviews. This season, he has been in particular demand, in part because he has struggled. Missouri Coach Norm Stewart has even benched him occasionally, holding him out of one game and not starting him in four others. Lately, Chievous has played his best of the season. In the last six games, he has averaged 28.

Missouri Coach Woody Widenhofer may have come here thinking about an upset over the top-ranked Miami Hurricanes, but he left town realizing just how tough a task it is. Starting quarterback Steve Walsh threw 4 touchdown passes and his backup, Craig Erickson, threw 2 as the Hurricanes rolled to their 36th consecutive regular-season victory, a 55-0 romp Saturday over Widenhofer's Tigers.

THE COLLEGES Unstartable Missouri (0-4) became what is believed to be the first team ever to lose to Cal, Northwestern and Indiana in the same season. If not in the same century.
