SPORTS 67th Relays is the Best Times Herald, Carroll, la. Friday, April 23, 1976 DBS MOINES, Iowa (AP) Compared with any other relays competition, the 67th Drake Relays "is probably the best one to come along because of the caliber of teams coming in." That was the view Thursday of Bob Ehrhart, director of the track and field classic Friday and Saturday in 18.000-capacity Drake Stadium. "Each year we've had some great individual races," Ehrhart said, "but this year is probably the most well-rounded, fullest relays field we've ever put together." Ehrhart declined to put a fa- • vorite's tag on any of the teams. But he quickly rattled off the names of schools he be- lievedwouldfigure prominently: Auburn, Baylor, Wisconsin, Texas Southern, Texas Christian, Kansas, Western Kentucky, Eastern New Mexico, Louisiana State, Southern Illinois... "In each race we've got five or six really outstanding teams," Ehrhart continued. "Most unusual." A record 4.570 athletes were entered. The university division had 988 competitors, college division 770. men's unattached 355, women's unattached 384. high school boys 1,493. prep girls 500, and junior high boys and girls 80. The field is ripe with Olympic Games hopefuls, former Olympians and gold medalists, and National Collegiate Athletic Association and Amateur Athletic Union champions. Ehrhart believes that, because this is an Olympic Games year, athletes are blossoming earlier as they prepare for the Olympic trials in June. The caliber of athletes here, he said, is excellent "because of the type of training they've had. They're probably four weeks ahead of schedule." Two late entries which elated Ehrhart were LSU's Larry Shipp. NCAA defending champion in the outdoor 120-yard high hurdles, and Illinois' Charlton Ehizuelen, a Nigerian who was temporarily dismissed from the track squad for disciplinary reasons. "Shipp is probably a sure bet for the Olympics," Ehrhart said. Ehiziielen has twice won the triple and long jumps here. "We had a disappointment at the same time." Ehrhart said, explaining that Mississippi State's Evis Jennings, a 400-meter specialist, has a sprained leg Dodgers on 1 -Game Winning Streak; Cubs End Losses at 5 By The Associated Press The Los Angeles Dodgers • mm _____ , in town, naturally Piekett's beer is now available in supermarkets and taverns. are on a winning streak — one in a row. That may not sound like much, but it is for the Dodgers, who have had their problems this year. "We had a good spring training and everybody worked hard but we haven't had any good pitching until the last two games," says Manager Walt Alston. The Dodgers, off to their worst start in many years, have only won three of 11 games so far, including Thurs-. day night's 7-2 decision over the Houston Astros. "I don't expect to knock too many fences down but we are not hitting up to par," Alston said. "While we haven't played well enough to win many, we have only been bombed out in one game this season (an 8-3 loss to Houston). "We have had our opportunities but when-you are going bad. you wind up losing your share." . Doug Rau, Thursday night's winning pitcher, saw the game as a turning point in Dodger fortunes. "A lot of good things happened tonight," said Rau, who was,one of them with six strong innings. "We had'good fielding and (Joe) Ferguson's home run shows that his timing may be back." In other National League action, the Montreal Expos defeated the Chicago Cubs 12-6 in a wrapup of a game suspended from Wednesday and then lost the regularly-scheduled contest. 5-4 in 11 innings. In the American League, the Kansas City Royals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1. Dusty Baker's bases-loaded single climaxed a three-run fifth inning for Los Angeles. Rau. 2-0. struck out six and allowed five hits before running into trouble in the seventh. Rau was taken out of the muscle and was scratched. There are also five national champions in women's events, including American record- holders Francie Larrieu Lutz (1,500 meters and mile) of the Pacific Coast Club. Madeline Manning Jackson (800 meters and 880) of the Cleveland Track Club, Debra Sapenter (400) of the Prairie View Track Club and Debbie Esser (400 intermediate hurdles) of Iowa State. Also entered is Wisconsin's Lee Chiu-Shia, a triple gold medalist (400, 800 and 1,500 meters) at last year's Asian Games when she competed for Taiwan. The six special events will attract a lion's share of the attention. In the special 100-yard dash, a close contest was anticipated between world recordholder Ivory Crockett game after giving up'a run in the seventh and loading the bases on a single and two walks. "I seemed to be losing a little veloocity on my fastball late in the game," said Rau. "I thought I threw a couple of bad pitches. " Expos 12-4, Cubs 6-5 Tim Foli hit a home run in the eighth inning to complete a four-hit game as Montreal, wrapped up its suspended contest with Chicago. BULLETIN SKY HIGH DBS MOINES — Carroll Kuemper's Rick Friedman was doing well in the high school high jump competition here Friday morning at the 67th Annual Drake Relays. Friedman had cleared the opening height of 6-2 and by mid-morning had cleared 6-4. His best is 6-4 '/i inches, which is a school record. The event was moved into the Drake Fieldhouse because of a steady rain. If you'd really like to save on the roomiest 2-door mid-size car built in America..

WITTROCK MOTOR CO. 218 W. 6th St. Carroll Dependable Service Since 1935 (nine seconds flat) and Auburn freshman Harvey Glenn, who recently tied the mark. The 800-meter field features Eastern New Mexico's Mike Boil, ranked No. 1 in the world by Track and Field News, the University of Chicaco Track Club's Rick Wohlhuter (No. 2) and Utah State's Mark Enyeart (No. 4). . Wohlhuter set a World standard of 1:44.1 in the half mile last year before Boit erased it. Enyeart has prevoously defeated Wohlhuter, who in turn outran Boit at the Kansas Relays last week. Boit was a 1972 Olympics bronze medalist at 800 meters and was fourth at 1,500 for his native Kenya. Ralph Mann of the Beverly Hills Striders, a silvfer medalist at Munich, set the 440-yard mark of 48.8 here in 1970. Currently rated fourth at that distance, he'll be tested by No. 3 Jim Bolding of the Pacific Coast Club. Mann's record time stood until Bolding, former Oklahoma State.standout, went 48.7 in 1974. Dan Ripley, also of the PCC, holds the world's pole<vault record of 18 feet, 3 3 A inches and was favored here. His competition will probably be from Terry Porter, formerly of Kansas, who has a personal best 176'/ 2 . • The PCC's Al Feuerbach, a native of Preston, Iowa, held the world shot put record of 717 until this spring. George Woods, also of the PCC and an Olympic hopeful, should be Feuerbach's strongest challenger. With Jennings' withdrawal from the 400 meter special, the battle should be between Mark Lutz of the PCC and Kim Rowe of Jamaica. 6 Everything Goes Right for Rowe Knight Golfers Win .

By The Associated Press Everything went right for Curtis Rowe — and everything went wrong for the Golden State Warriors. "That was probably the best game he ever played in his life," Bob Lanier said after watching his Detroit teammate tear up the Warriors in the National Basketball Association playoffs. Golden State Coach Al Attles called it "an all-pro performance" after watching Rowe score 33 points, grab 10 rebounds, collect three assists and make three steals in Detroit's 123-111 victory over the Warriors Thursday night. The shockingly easy victory forged a 1-1 tie for Detroit in the best-of-seven Western Conference semifinals. "It was just one of those games when everything went right," said'Rowe. "It's hard to stop a team when that is happening." The near-perfect game made up for Tuesday night's 127-103 loss to Golden State in the series opener. "We were completely dis- . organized Tuesday night," said Detroit Coach Herb Brown. "We ran our offense tonight. That's all there is to it. You've got to out-execute people to win in this league." In another playoff game, the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the, Washington Bullets 92-91 and took a 3-2'lead in their Eastern Conference semifinals. In tonight's action, the Boston Celtics, holding a 1-0 lead, host the Buffalo Braves in an Eastern semifinal series. In the other Western Conference semifinal, the Phoenix Suns, leading 3-1, meet the Su- perSonics Sunday in Seattle. Lanier, the Pistons' muscular center, totaled 31 points, hitting 10 of 15 shots from the floor, mostly on outside jump shots. Rowe made 12 of 16 field goal attempts. Rick Barry was Golden State's top scorer with 27 points but had only five ppints —:all foul shots — in the second half. , Cavaliers 92, Bullets 91 Jim Cleamons laid'in a rebound with one second left' to give Cleveland its victory over Washington. The game, played before 21.312 — the largest crowd ever to see an NBA playoff game and the biggest home crowd in Cleveland history — was close all the way. Neither team led by more than seven points at any time. The Bullets led 91-90 with 37 seconds left. After a Cleveland turnover, Washington's Elvin Hayes missed two free throws with seven.seconds left and the Cavaliers took time out. Center. Jim Chones was fouled, with five seconds left and Cleveland had the ball out of bounds again. A shot by Bobby Smith, who had 15 points including 10 in the third period, bounced off the side of the rim before Cleamons sank the rebound. Ex-Palmer Caddie Takes Early Lead center, died after a lengthy illness. Will Award Briar Cliff College will award athletic grants-in-aid to women beginning this fall. President Kasper Marking, said Thursday. The preliminary program calls for four partial grants in basketball, four in volleyball, one in golf and one at large. "Our goal is the. improvement of our women's athletic teams and the recruitment of more women athletes to Briar Cliff College," said Dr. John Niemann, dean of students.

Northern Iowa, Drake, Luther, Graceland and Wartburg will be Iowa's opponents in its last home stand. Faces Puerto Rica The Rutgers University basketball team takes on a national team from Puerto Rico in Rome Friday night in a four-team invitational. NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Mike Reasor looked up with a puzzled expression on his face. "I don't know what's going on," he said, then offered a smile. "It's just starting to jell." He paused a moment, obviously searching for words to explain the sudden .turn-around in his golfing fortunes. - .-'"You.'just.can't realize what a small difference there is in shooting 65 and 75. Just a couple of good shots as opposed to a couple of bad shots; a few putts going in. That's the difference in being three or four over and seven under." This time Reasor. a bright, personable man undismayed by his eight long years of struggle on the pro golf tour, turned in a seven-under score, a brilliant 65 that staked him to a two-stroke lead Thursday in the first round of the $175.000 New Orleans Open. "I've played pretty well the last few weeks." said Reasor. 34. most of whose previous fame came from his role as Arnold Palmer's caddy in the 1966 U.S. Open. Reasor has yet to win in a tour career that began in 1969. He's never earned an exemption. He was 121st on the money-winning list last year. In his first 12 tries this season he survived the cut only once. But in his last two starts, in events in which the major stars were not playing, he finished seventh and 15th. And then, on a bright,.warm, almost windless spring day with some of the game's greatest stars in the field, he unleashed a- near-perfect effort that put him well clear of such standouts as Jack Nicklaus. Billy Casper, Hubert Green and Tom Watson. Casper, the defending champion, had second place alone until he bogeyed the final hole and dropped to two shots off the pace and a tie at 67 with Wally Armstrong and Monty Kaser, like Reasor career nonwinners. Nicklaus. the heavy pre-tourney favorite, shot a 68 that he called "sort of mediocre" and was tied with 10 others three strokes back. Green, a three-time winner this year and the runnerup in last week's Tournament of Champions; British Open champ Tom Watson and John Mahaffey, runnerup last week in Tallahassee, also were at 68.
