Hawks Lose Again, 94-78 Timet Herald, Carroll, la. Thuraday, March 4, 1976 IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Iowa Coach Lute Olson knew soon after the game started that it was going to be a tough one. "When Cal (Wulfsberg) got into foul trouble early, we were in for a long night," he said after his Hawkeyes dropped a Big Ten Conference basketball game to Purdue 94-78 Wednesday. Wulfsberg picked up four fouls in the first six minutes of play. He returned in the second half but fouled out without scoring a point. Iowa led 36-31 before the Boilermakers began their first-half charge. They outscored Iowa 11-3 in the last three minutes of the half, including a basket at the buzzer by Eugene Parker, which gave Purdue a 43-39 halftime edge. "We had 21 errors," sighed Olson, "and most of those came from our point people. They just can't turn it over like that." Purdue exploded in the second half and chalked up an 8767 lead with three minutes to go. Iowa was able to chip away at some of the 20-point margin but not enough to turn the tide. "We've made some strides from a year ago (when Iowa finished 10-16), but we still have to make progress in our program to play with the top teams," said Olson after the home season finale. Purdue had four players in double figures, including Parker with 24 and Walter Jordan with 20. Bruce King had 27 for Iowa and became the eighth player in Iowa history to score more than 500 points in a season. Guard Scott Thompson, who added 19 points, achieved the 500-point mark earlier in the season. Iowa fell to 8-9 in the conference and 18-10 overall. It was the fourth straight defeat for the Hawks, who end the season Saturday at Illinois. Purdue moved into a tie for third with Michigan State in the Big Ten with a 10-7 mark. The Boilermakers are 15-11 overall. Western Michigan is Big Shot Now Land Bank loans have helped America farm better for 60 consecutive years. There have been dramatic changes in agriculture during the last 60 machines, new crops, new chemicals. But the real production miracle is still the man on the land...a hard-working individual who plans ahead and then carries out his plan. We are proud that when a man of this caliber needs long-term credit, he looks to his Federal Land Bank Association. FEDERAL LAND BANK ASSOC. OF HARLAN Harlem, Phone 755-3118 Carroll Office Fridays 9:30-12, Ph. 792-3210 LATMDB7VNK ' By The Associated Press The .Western Michigan bas- ketball'team is a big shot now . . . and not just in Kalamazoo. A school with a big campus but little basketball tradition, the Broncos struck it rich Wednesday night with a 73-58 victory over Miami of Ohio that won a spot in the National Co.llegiate Athletic Association playoffs. "Hey, fellas, we're in the tournament!" Coach Eldon Hall announced with glee after the victory that secured at least a tie for the Mid-American Conference championship. The nth-ranked Broncos, who last won the Mid-American Conference 25 years ago, can win the crown outright by beating Bowling Green at home this Saturday. But they don't have to clinch the league title to go to the NCAA playoffs, since they took both meetings with Miami this year and thus qualified automatically in the event of a tie. Eldon had to be convinced by reporters that his team had made the playoffs, which gives you some idea of the losing image Western Michigan has shouldered for years. Last season, the Broncos finished fifth in the league with an 8-6 record. In another big game Wednesday night. No. 15 Missouri downed Kansas State 81-72 to clinch at least a tie for the Big Eight title.

Killebrew Retires With Some Regrets 43a BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Harmon Killebrew, fifth on baseball's all-time home run list after 22 seasons in the American League, has retired — with some regrets — as an active player. Killebrew, who will be 40 in June, told a news conference Wednesday he would become an announcer and color commentator for a Minneapolis station covering Minnesota Twins games. "It has been a difficult decision for me to make," Killebrew said. "I haven't been looking forward to it with a great deal of anticipation." Killebrew hit 573 home runs after being signed out of high school to a bonus contract. He will replace Ray Scott, who left station WTCN for the Milwaukee Brewers. "The job opened up''and the timing seems to be right," Killebrew said in explaining his reason for taking the job. Killebrew joined the old Washington Senators at the age of 18 in 1954. He signed a bonus contract, meaning he had to be kept with the team for three seasons. He made the big leagues for good in 1959. He spent almost his entire career with the old Washington team and moved with It to Minnesota. Killebrew went to Kansas City last season and saw limited action as a designated hitter. He said his new job would allow him to spend more time with his family at his home in Ontario, Ore. He played in 2,435 games, scored 1,283 runs and had 2.086 hits. He had 291 doubles and 1.584 runs batted in. In 1969, he won the American League's Most Valuable Player Award after hitting 49 home runs. He said his biggest baseball thrill was playing in the 1965 World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. ."It's difficult to pick out one game, though. I love baseball. It's difficult to give it up." he said. Virginia Military Institutp defeated Appalachian State 71-64 and Richmond whipped William and Mary 84-78 to advance to tonight's finals. Tom Cutter and Jeff Tyson combined for 39 points to boost Western Michigan past Miami. Cutter and Tyson hit 15 of the first 18 points scored by the Broncos in the second half. The 6-foot-8, 220-pound Cutter finished with 23 points and provided the edge for Western M i c h i g a n in rebounding throughout the game. Tyson scored 16 points. Willie Smith poured in 38 points as Missouri downed Kansas State and moved a step closer to nailing down an NCAA berth. The Tigers, 11-2. now lead the Wildcats. 10-3, by one game in the Big Eight standings, and each team has one game remaining. Ron Carter converted a four-point play with less than three minutes left to ice VMI's victory over Appalachian State. Mike Morton scored 25 points in leading Richmond over William & Mary. Along with the Southern Conference finals tonight, four other leagues will hold playoffs — the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Ohio Valley Conference, the Southwest Conference and the Metro-Six. In addition, the Eastern College Athletic Conference will start first-round play in three regional tournaments — the New England, the Metropolitan and the Upstate New York.

Kan. (AP) — Jim Ryun. whose name has been synonymous with the mile run for almost a decade, said a "vision from God'' gave him the courage to quit running. "I finally found peace with myself to retire," the former University of Kansas star said Wednesday. "About a week ago God spoke to me, saying. 'You fought a good fight, you ran a good race, but now you're finished,'" he said during his retirement announcement at the university. The 28-year-old Ryun. who set world records in the mile and the 1.500-meter run as a teen-ager at Kansas, had been bothered by injuries since turning pro and joining the International Track Association in 1972. "Six months ago I made the decision to return to Kansas and see if I could run pro again." Ryun said. "Had I decided to retire at that point, it would have been a verv diffi- cult decision for me to accept and there would have been a great deal of animosity inside me." Ryun, who first gained recognition as a premier miler at Wichita East High School, set his world records in the mile run — three minutes, 51.1 seconds — and the 1,500 meters — 3:33.1 — only 16 days apart in 1967. Both records were broken. • Calculators • Adding Machines • Typewriters STONE'S Hwy. 30 Downtown Carroll i$MILE AWHILE «**/CA$E POWER^EQUIP.
