2—B "TTO REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS SATURDAY, JANUARY 11, 1969 ORPHS BEA T CARBONDALE, OPEN UP SOUTH 7 SCRAMBLE Junior Rams Rally, Beat Olney 45-40 Collins Hits 40 For Benton! Red-Hot Centralia Quint Pins 81-76 Upset On Terriers Centralia's blistering drive in the closing minutes submerged Carbondale 81-76 last night and turned the South Seven Conference race into a wide open affair. Goach Bob Jones' Orphans, who averaged 82 points per game during their Christmas Holiday tourney, kept up the barke't barrage before a packed house at Trout Gym last night. Conch Walt Moore's Ter- i-iers, previously undefeated in South Seven action and rated No. 11 in this week's AP prep poll, got a 30 point «,fiort from sensational re- bounder Les Taylor — but it wasn't enough to match the Orphan team barrage. Taylor scored 21 of his points in a brilliant first half, then was checked on nine markers down the stretch. Norman Meeks and Nate Moore each bucketed 23 points for Centralia and Walt Gardner added 16. Westburg hit 19 for Carbond.-le, Thompson had 15 and Wilkinson 14. The Carbondale defeat left four clubs in a virtual deadlock in the South Seven race, each with one loss. Centralia claims the edge with a 5 -1 record, Carbondale stands 4-1, Mt. Vernon and Benton both 3-1. Part of that deadlock will be broken tonight when Centralia goes to Benton.

(AP)-Santa Anita is building a dressing room for girl jockeys...even though some horse racing people doubt it will get much use. An exercise girl at the track, Sandy Schleiffers, 22, wants —to be the first to use the tiny room next to the dressing quarters for male jockeys. — She has applied for an apprentice jockey license, and Charles Harm an of the California Horse Racing Board says it's against the law to forbid a woman to seek a jockey's license just because she's a —worn an. It's illegal in California to discriminate because of sex, except in the case of a hazardous occupation. — By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The defending champion Boston Celtics felt better today after beating Wilt Chamberlain and the Los Angeles Lakers for the first time in National Basketball Association action this season. The Celtics' 88-82 triumph Friday night did not improve their third place position in the Eastern Division but the significance of the triumph was that it came after two previous losses to the Lakers. And, the Lakers continue in comfort at the top of the Western Division. With 0 seconds remaining and trailing 74-60, the Lakers came to life. Rookie Jay Carty scored six points in the surge which knotted the score at 77- all. But veteran Sam Jones' •brilliant play in the final four minutes iced the game for the Celtics. Jones and John Havlicek, with 20 and 24 points respectively, accounted for half the Celtics' points. Veteran Elgin Baylor led Los Angeles scoring with 21 points. The Baltimore Bullets, leaders of the Eastern division, were challenged sharply in their 106-104 triumph over the San Diego Rockets. Trailing by nine points with less than two minutes to play, the Rockets rallied and were two points behind at the final buzzer. The Rocekts h i g h -s c o rin g rookie, Elvin Hayes, scored 32 points. Kevin Loughery with 26 points was top man for the Bullets. The Atlanta Hawks came from behind to beat the Detroit Pistons 104-101 and pull up to within 3Yz games of the Lakers. With 56 seconds remaining, Lou Hudson tallied twice to put the game on ice for the Hawks. Milwaukee breezed by Seattle 115-104 largely due to collective good shooting by Jon McGlocklin with 24, Flynn Robinson with 23 and Len Chappell with 20. The cellar dwelling Bucks appear to have a thing going, the victory being their third in four starts since the second half of the season began. In the American Basketball Association Minnesota defeated Indiana 122-111; Miami beat Kentucky 117-100; New York stopped New Orleans 132-127 in a triple overtime contest, and Los Angeles won over Dallas 1-106.

(AP)—Will Trop ical Park's jockeys, like those at Churchill Downs, stage a boy. cott when Barbara Jo Rubin and Iris Coppinger get mounts? "There are jqekeys here that say they will ride with them," said a spokesman for Tropical Park Friday after the Florida Racing Commission granted jockey licenses to the teen-aged girls. Racing Commission Chairman L.B. Walker said, however, that other jockeys can not be forced to ride with the girls. "Under our system of free enterprise," Walker said, the commission action "should not be construed to mean that men would have to compete against females if they choose not to. Walker's comment was in reply to a query from Nick Jemas, managing director of the Jockey's Guild. Jemas, aware that any organized boycott could be held by the courts as a violation of the anti-trust laws, said: "We have never boycotted any racing. What the riders do as individuals is their own decision." When Peggy Ann Early got a license to ride at Churchill Downs last fall, the jockeys—to a man—refused to take mounts in the race in which she had a horse. Mt. Vernon Olney 1119 6 11—47 4 2 7 8-21 Mt.

(AP) — Jim McCoy of 01»an, N.lf., set a course record Tuesday and took a two-stroke lead in the first round of the 72- hole $10,000 PGA stroke play championship. Playing over the month-old north course at the PGA National Golf Club, McCoy posted a dazzling 64 to break the competitive course record of 65 set only last Saturday by Herman Keis- ATTENTION TAXPAYERS AND VOTERS Hello Dodson Korner. I came back to say: Apparently you Want to play "Sock It to me. OK, I will drink to that." Your legal knowledge of city manager government (as revealed in your open letter to Councilman Burnctte) Revenue Bonds, Taxpayers, Finances and Annexations, etc. frlghtensme. Often an appointed councilman or mayor possess the will, the know-how and have the backing to get the job done. You certainly lost no time In showing Karpet Korner that Dodson Korner WAS FIRST. I am not trying to get Into the act but selecting a hew city manager should be left to the discretion of the two hold-over couneUmen (who will have to work with him two years) and to the Mayor and two counclbnen elected in April (Who will have to'work with him four years). To do otherwise would be tragic. Besides, as long as Kenny Serzekorn is our interim or appointed CITY MANAGER, Mt. Vernon Is In good hands so there is no need to panic. By the way, Qcdson Korner, are you.... available if your three former Ozark Flying pals, still on the council, SHOULD JUMP THE GUN and pull an Abe Fortas? You reached the climax in your masterpiece to ••Woody". With aFi and I quote: "P.S. Tell your campaign manager that when he received a dollar a year for Mayor, as he likes to brag, It is my opinion that he was overpaid" end of quote. Let me make this very clear, I am no one's campaign manager. I circulated no petitions. I notarized no petitions. I did sign Mary Lou Eubank* petition and my sole objective in three new faces on the CITY COUNCIL. Your Jibe about being overpaid is a little stale. Centralia pulled this one on me over 15 years ago. In my 1953 campaign for Mayor I said, I will stop payless paydays at city hall. So, I did not cash my 4 checks. Besides, today they are worth $7200.00. I never mastered the art of ribbon cutting so I could not do much for Mt. Vernon but then 4 votes are more than one (Tenth Street Underpass). I hope this is not bragging but If I may borrow some J. D. Verbage, I too will say, yet it happened — it happened in Mt. Vernon. It happened In downtown Mt Vernon night of July 14, 1956 on the. east side of the court house. A huge crowd bad gathered, it was getting dark, I was priviledged to turn a switch and the crowd roared as our beautiful color corrected MERCURY VAJPOR WHITE WAY: became a reahty. Yea, it happened this time In beautiful DOWNTOWN BfT. VERNON. As we left the platform a voice said •'Mayor tins to one thug that.they can't take away from you". I said ••thanks Harlow".
