Balance is Kuemper Key By Dennis O'Grady (Sports Editor) How good will Kuemper's boys' track team be this spring? "Balance" will be the key according to second-year coordinator John Davis. "I think we'll have some good individuals. Whether we'll be strong in the bigger meets will depend on our balance," Davis added as his squad opens their season in a triangular at Denison Tuesday. "We lost some good ones, especially in the field events," continued Davis who also oversees the girls' track program. ^'Davis mentioned Joe Roetker, Pat Gute and Russ Rupiper as being three kids that will be hard to replace. "WeYe definitely strong in the high jump," commented Davis referring to the return of school record-holder Rick Friedman. "I also feel we have some great, young distant runners." 'Heading the returning lettermen numbering 15 is Friedman who high jumped 6-4'/4 a year ago. •Two other top returnees are Tjm Gradoville, a junior, and sophomore Kirk Lengeling. •iGradpvilie, a two miler, is just five seconds away from the school record in that event and Lengeling is just three tenths of a second off the 220 yard dash mark. 'Other veterans include Mark Reicks, Mark Kloser, Paul LudWig, Bob Kelly, Ryan Harnack,. Ed Staiert, Roger Schrad, Doyle Engelen, Brian Greteman, Dave Schwaller, Tom Kalkhoff and Kevin Tessmer. ••" John Davis Kalkhoff is coming back after being in a motorcycle accident last summer. According to Davis, he'll compete in the shot put and discus events. And Tessmer is a returnee who was voted the team's Times Herald, Carroll, la. r Monday, March 29, 1976 O most improved runner a year ago. Among relay teams the Knight head coach feels the medley unit could be a good one since three of the four members are back in Ludwig, F'riedman and Lengeling. ,"They had the best time in southwest Iowa last year," remarked Davis. "We could also have a good mile relay team," added Davis, "but it is too early to tell." Sizing up: Shot Put: Craig Wittrock is the leading candidate, but Terry Axman and Dan Stevens, only a freshman, are in contention. Discus: Davis had four candidates in this 1 event. Kalkhoff, Schrad, John Loew and freshman Curt Augustus are the top candidates. Pole Vault: Back is the veteran Schwaller. Others in contention include Ken Nurse and Stan Romey. High Jump: Friedman is the front runner. Another possibility is Engelen. Hurdlers: Veterans Kelly and Tessmer head the list. Promising newcomers are Denny Rutten and Vince Otto. Sprinters: Best among the sprinters is Lengeling, but Ludwig and Brad Reiman look good. Quarter-milers: Davis said he didn't know much yet, but added, "our best 440 men are the basketball players." Half-milers: There are plenty of candidates. Best of the group are Steve Eischeid, Ryan Harnack, Mark Reicks, Randy Goecke and brothers Bill and Randy Prebeck. Milers and Two Milers: Gradoville is the top returnee. Other candidates are Mark Kloser, Brian Greteman and Paul Baldus. Knight Notes: Looking at Tuesday's meet •at Denison, Davis commented, "we'll just use it as an opportunity to get some times on the kids. None of our basketball players will be running. We'll just do the best we can.", Davis said he hoped for the entire squad to be ready for Friday when the team goes to the Holstein Relays. The basketball squad that went to the state tournament has kept the team's progress behind according to Davis. . "But I'm really pleased with the kids' enthusiasm. They're working hard." , ' .Davis said, "The team's goal is to improve on times in every meet. We did that last year except for the final meet."

"That's why they're talking to my man," Sutton said. "They've agreed on the deal. Now they've got to/get me to agree." Sutton, who will be 31 Friday, has played with the Dodgers for 10 years. That makes him a "5-and-lQ" player, one who cannot be traded without his permission. The Dodger star reportedly talked to Mets' players Joe Torre and Bud Harrelson and let them in on the trade during Sunday's New York-Los Angeles exhibition game in Vero Beach, Fla. McDonald said three weeks ago he had initiated trade talks with six clubs, advising them of the Mets' willingness to part with Seaver. Several days ago McDonald said he still had "ongoing negotiations' with two clubs." Seaver, a three-time Cy Young award winner, is generally regarded as one of the best pitchers in baseball. He said Sunday that a trade for Sutton would not suprise him. > "When we first started working out I went to Joe (McDonald) and told him I wasn't unhappy or disloyal and that I wanted to remain a Met. He said he would get back to me. "But there have been no communications. He has" not gotten back to me."

Michigan's Scalpel Tonight PHILADELPHIA (AP) It's the Hammer vs. the Scalpel tonight in the finals of the NCAA basketball playoffs. Indiana beats you up and Michigan cuts you up. "I never dreamed that we'd have to play Indiana three times this season," said Michigan Coach Johnny Orr. "Good gracious, twice is enough." The Big Ten colleagues advanced to the championship game at the Spectrum with surprisingly easy victories in Saturday's semifinals, setting up the first NCAA title game between teams from the same conference. "I wish we could get some Big Ten officials to work our game tonight," kidded Orr. "Then it would be just like being back home." In their previous meetings this season, Indiana's muscle- rri e n prevailed ov'er Michigan's flyboys, but not by Third Win in a Row to Green HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Hubert Green, a down-home type who's become one of the gaudiest names in golf, had to go back to last Christmas to explain the sudden turn-around that has lifted him to the front rank of the game's stars. "I don't really know exactly why." Hubert puzzled. He'd missed the cut four weeks ago, then came back to reel off three straight victories, only the second time in 14 seasons anyone has done that. Then his face brightened with the grin that has made him such a popular favorite. "Last Christmas, my caddy gave me a present," Hubert said. "A box of rocks. Maybe he was telling me I had rocks in my head." And,. Green surmised, maybe the caddy was right. Hubert said he'd had trouble with his concentration in the early part of the season. "Actually, I was playing pretty good. Not bad, anyhow. But it was stupidity. Just dumb. "It's like I was playing in a different time zone. I'd always wind up hitting one out of bounds or hitting one in the water or something. Horrible. Just awful." The turn came at the Doral , Open, which he won by six strokes and with a record score. It was worth $40,000. Next it was Jacksonville, a two-stroke victory worth $35.000. And Sunday he added the Sea Pines Heritage title with a 10-u.nder 274, a comfortable five shot victory, to the string that has yet to come to an end. . That last victory was worth $43,000 from the total purse of $215,000, made Hubert the leading money-winner with $132.006 for the season and enabled him to set a record of $118.000 — the most ever collected in the span of three weeks. " Jerry McGee, never in contention for the title, took second. He holed out from a sand (/rap on the final hole for a 68279. much. The Hoosiers beat the Wolverines by six points in one game and then were carried into overtime before subduing the Big Ten runners-up. Despite sweeping the two- game series and finishing yards ahead of Michigan in the Big Ten standings, Indiana Coach Bobby Knight did not find past performances a psychological factor in the championship game. "You can forget about all that past stuff," said Knight. "The only thing that makes the difference is how well you play once the ball goes up into the air. The only thing that matters is which team does what it does best. That team will win. You guys (the press) are always trying to make it so complicated." What Indiana does best is blast inside for field goals with 6-foot-11 center Kent Benson serving as the stick of dynamite. What Michigan does best is run and shoot behind Hale Irwin, Don January and Gibby Gilbert were next at 280. January and Irwin had 67s and Gilbert a 73 — the same as Green — in the mild, hazy weather. Murphy had a 76 and was one of five at 281. Jack Nicklaus, the defending champion, shot a 73-282. Gary Player, Lee Trevino and Tom Weiskopf were at 283. In the past 14 years, only Johnny Miller has won three in a row. He swept the first three titles in the 1974 season, but one of those was a rain-abbreviated, three-round event. Now Green has a shot at four in a row, last achieved in 1952. But he won't try for it. He's skipping the Greater Greensboro Open. "I've played six in a row," he said. "I'm committed for the four after Greensboro." Veteran Pepitone Eyes S.D.

Would you believe Yuma, Ariz.? That's where the San Diego Padres are training and that's where they beat the Cleveland Indians 7-6 in an exhibition game Sunday on a lOth-inning single by the 35-year-old Pepitone. The erstwhile playboy of the Western world retired after two months.of playing — baseball, that is — in Japan in 1974f Now he's on the roster of the Padres' Hawaii farm club in the Pacific Coast League but is bidding to return to the majors. "I'm very impressed with the shape Pepitone is in," said San DiegoManager John McNamara. "He can still swing the bat and he also looks like he has the good hands around first base. He has a chance to make our ballclub." Rickey Gree'n with one of the quickest teams in the country. "I think Michigan is the best team we've played this year," said KnigKt. "Their quickness is really going to be a problem for us. Michigan plays well together and works very hard at both ends of the court. You can't exploit them like you can other teams because they have no weak areas to exploit." The Wolverines used their blazing speed to beat Rutgers 86-70 in the semifinals. The Hoosiers used their inside muscle to overpower UCLA 65-51 and ,improve their season's record to a gaudy 31-0. Michigan, which came closer than anybody to beating Indiana this season, will be facing a stronger Hoosier unit this time, according to Orr. "I think we have to play better this time than we did last time because they're playing better,'" said the Michigan coach. "Indiana was in a slight slump at one point of the season, but now they've got it back on the right beat. Bobby's got 'em playing well now." The Hoosiers are seeking their third national basketball title. They won in 1940 and 1953. Michigan has never won the NCAA championship. Before the Big ten teams meet in the championship game, Rutgers and UCLA will play for third place. By Jerry Scfiroec/er Does a dying person fall backwards or forwards? In conventional pictures and descriptions of battles and death scenes, persons fatally shot are often erroneously portrayed as falling backwards. In reality, a person who dies suddenly while standing, whether from bullets, heart failure, or other causes, almost always falls forward. The same is true of a person who.faints while standing. Normally not even the force of a bullet fired from the front is sufficient to overcome the tendency of a dying person to fall foward. • ********** Did you know that about 95% of all rivers in North American flow south, in a southerly direction, or into streams that flow southward?
