THE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, November 10, 1961 Another Basketball "Child 59 JACKSONVILLE, 111. (AP) Basketball's second oldest surviving "child," forgotten at recent ceremonies marking the game's birth, has been found. "Evidently, they must have thought I was dead," Ernest G. Hildner, 88, of Jacksonville, said when he heard of the festive occasion last week in Springfield, Mass. Hildner, a retired Presbyterian minister, was the youngest member of the YMCA training school class that helped Dr. James Naismith bring his New England cold weather cure-all into the world using peach baskets as cradles in 1891. The spry oldtimer said he was not hurt at being overlooked at the commemorative event marking the 70th birthday of basktball and the 100th anniversary of Naismith's birth. "I'd just like to set the record straight that there are two living members of that class instead of one," Hildner mused in referring to Raymond Kaighn, who had been described as the "only living member." •Kaighn, Hildner agrees, was there that morning when "Jimmie" (Naismith) walked into the gymnasium at the Springfield school for YMCA physical educa- tion instructors and secretaries and said: "Let's try this." "We hoisted the peach baskets to their perches on the indoor track gallery above the basketball floor," Hildner recalled. "Jimmie divided the class, and the game began with brute force." The 1803 graduate of the school is convinced that no one on the floor that bleak winter day was aware of what soon would develop. OHS In Season Finale Tonight Ottawa High's Cyclones could write a blazing finish to their 1961 football season tonight at Bonner Springs. But it will take some doing. The Cyclones nailed Emporia, 7-0, last week for the first scoreboard victory of the season. Bonner Springs beat Olathe, 25-6 last week. Ottawa, too.holds a victory over Olathe, but it came via a forfeit. Olathe beat the Cyclones, 370, on the Scoreboard but was handed a loss because of using an ineligible player. "Bonner Springs has a big team," said Cyclone Coach Harold Wallace who watched the Bonner Springs-Olathe game. "They have a 230-pound tackle, a 205- pound end and a guard that weighs 200." Boosting Cyclone hopes will be the return of a couple of boys who've missed season games because of injuries, halfback Mike Shephard and defensive guard Bill Ferguson. Wallace will start Roy Dunn at quarterback. Robert Gray and Paul Stephens at halfback posts and Mickey Reed, the Cyclones' top ground gainer, at fullback. On the line will be Showalter and Roger Ferguson, ends; Wollen and Rybolt, tackles; Meiers and Daugharthy, guards, and Mack, center. Kickoff time will be 7:30.

(AP) - Mis- siuri's tough Tigers and Oklahoma's Sooners clash here Saturday with Coach Dan Devine's crew favored to win the Big Eight football tussle. The Tigers whipped Oklahoma last year at Norman 41-19 to break a 14-year jinx in the riv- arly in which OU has won 30 and Missouri 17. There have been four ties. Ticket sales have reached a record 43,181. The previous high was 42,804 for the 1960 Missouri-Kansas game. Both squads, injury plagued from the start of the season are in good shape. The Tiger claws appear to be a bit sharper for this game with the return of halfbacks Gerald Stevenson and Norm Beal, defensive stalwart who went only 4Va minutes against Colorado last Saturday. Oklahoma is doubtful about a key lineman, Billy White, who suffered an ankle sprain and a hip injury in last week's Kansas State game, the Sooner's first victory of the season. Ends Ronnie Payne and Dale Perini as well as fullback Phil Lohman, who have been sidelined, are expected to be near top condition. Oklahoma is not noted for speed and depth, but Bob Page, quarterback has turned into a steady performer under fire and led the Sooners to a 14-10 margin over Colorado Cannot Afford Slip By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The next four weekends may seem like years to Colorado Coach Sonny Grandelius. and his undefeated Golden Buffaloes. Just one slip could take away a host of honors long sought by Colorado and now within reach of the hungry Buffaloes. At least two of their fellow members of the Big Eight Con ference will nourish hopes for a misstep by the Buffs. As Coach Jack Mitchell of Kansas puts it: "I'm not ready to count us out yet. Nebraska or Iowa State could beat Colorado and that could give us a chance for a tie. The Orange Bowl can select whom it wants from the league and it just might rule in our favor." Missouri Coach Dan Devine and Athletic Director Don Faurot arc a little more cautious. Fauro •says "right now it doesn't loot like we'll be going to the Orange Bowl. But you never can tell what can happen." Kansas is 4-1 and Missour 3-1 in league play. Colorado plays Utah at Boulder tomorrow in a non-conference game while Missouri meets Oklahoma in Columbia, Kansas and Kansas State play at Lawrence and Nebraska goes to Iowa State Oklahoma State is idle. The Buffs have won 6 straight games and lead the Big Eight with a 5-0 record. They are eighth ranked in the Associated Press poll. Homecoming At KU With 'Cats The Foe LAWRENC, Kan. (AP) - It's Homecoming at Kansas Saturday and a record crowd of 34,000 is expected for the 59th annual football battle between the Jayhawks and Kansas State University. Although heavily favored, the Hawks will have to smother the fine throwing arm of Larry Corigan and a tenacious defense to win big. Corrigan, sidelined with a back injury in the Wildcats third game of the season, came off the bench last Saturday to spark a touch- down drive against Oklahoma. The Sooners won 17-8. Larry and his brother Dick will be starting their first football game together, Wildcat Coach Doug Weaver said. Larry will be at quarterback. Dick will be at right tackle in place of injured Bill Hull. KU's tripple threat star, John Hadl, leads the Jayhawk offense. He'll have with him three fine veterans, Curtis McClinton and Rodger McFarland at the halfback posts and Ken Coleman at fullback. Kansas nigged line slightly outweighs that of their intra-statt rivals. -In addition to Larry Corrigan, CoacH Weaver expects to start Joe Searles and Spencer Puls at the halfbacks and Bill Gallagher at fullback. K-State is winless in the Big Eight but has a season record of 2-4. Kansas has lost only to Colorado in conference play and hat a 4-2-1 record. Kickoff time is 1:30 p. m. (cst) OU Tackle Play ing 36th Game In Row Colorado at the end of three quarters. The powerful Buffs clicked for two final period touchdowns and a 22-14 victory. Page has been named to handle the Sooner split T attack with veterans Jimmy Carpenter and Mike McClennan at the halves and Lohamann at fullback. Veteran Ron Taylor, an early season casualty of the Tigers, will direct Devine's winged T, with sophomore Vince Turner and veteran Bill Tobin at halfbacks and Andy Russell at full. Kickoff time is 1:30 p.m. (CST) Clarence Whitesell, Ottawa University's bruising 220-pound senior tackle from Clearwater, will be starting his 36th consecutive game when the Braves meet the Don Didn't Miss Putts BEAUMONT, Tex. (AP) - The story of the opening round of the $20,000 Beaumont Invitational Golf Tournament was one of missed putts. That is, for everyone except youthful Don Fairfield of Casey, 111. While Fairfield and his five-under par 66 Thursday represented a two-stroke advantage in a closely-bunched field, his closest pursuers complained of short putts that might have been. Jay Herbert of Miami, Fla., for instance, was four inches short on a three-footer on No. 9, giving him a bogey. But the grizzled veteran from Louisiana will never forget No. 1, a par 4 hole with a minimum of troublesome hazards. Hebert rifled a six-iron 15 feet from the pin to begin his bid. His first putt eased downhill six feet beyond the flag. His second putt was 14 inches short, and he missed a third stroke by a half- inch, finally holing out on his fourth effort. People-To-People Office In K*C; Ike Chairman KANSAS CITY (AP) - International headquarters of the revitalized Peopele-to-People program is going tp' be in Kansas City.

(AP)—Jim Hoi- man scored both touchdowns for Riverton High School Thursday night in a 14-13 victory over Girard, although he's a guard. Holman stole a hand-off from the Girard quarterback and ran 95 yards for the first tally, then picked up a fumble and scooted five yards for the other one. Makes Brag Before Race LAUREL, Md. (AP) — The Soviets and Americans were at it again today over a $70,000 international prize. The money will go to the winner of Saturday's 10th International race in which eight entries representing six nations will compete at a mile and a half on the grass. "Zabeg will win the International," Soviet trainer Yevgeni Goot- blieb stated flatly. "The Americans will have a little to say about that," retorted wizened jockey Johnny Longden. Longden, 54, whose 5,556 race victories lead the world, will be astride T. V. Lark, one of the two U.S. entries. The other part of the formidable home team is Kelso, who has lost only four times in 20 races over a three-year span and is generally considered the best U.S. horse in training. Baker Wildcats at Baldwin tomorrow night. Whilesell, an offensive tackle, last year was selected to the Kansas Conference first team all-stars Matching the Braves winning streak game for game are Bill Shook and John McAninch who will be starting their 19th consecutive game on both offense and defense.

(AP)-The Professional Golfers Association las opened its membership door to Negroes and to golfers from every country of the world. Until the constitution was amended Thursday at the annual PGA convention, membership had been limited to Caucasians from North and South America. Now there are no restrictions based oa race, religion or nationality. Lou Strong of Rochester, N. Y., PGA president elected for a second two-year term, said the constitutional changes most likely would not be noticeable on the pro-tournamnet circuit. He noted that three Negroes have participated in PGA-spon- sored tourneys, as well as players from countries outside the Western Hemisphere. Now, however, these payers will be able to join the PGA.
