1 E4 Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 10, 1968 Pacers Play New Tunes As Court Hopes Bloom GOLF SCENE By Chuck Voorhis TANNER FREER t I - By DONFOYKIN Staff W riter LAKE WORTH The tune of "Sweet Georgia Brown" echoed across the gym as Palm Beach Junior College's basketball team warmed up Friday afternoon. It was evident the music, which also included several soul renditions, had the Pacers in a lively mood. "We only use the music as a method of getting the boys livened up after a day of classes," Tanner explained as Aretha Franklin's "Respect" was blaring away in the background. "It is sort of the hand clapping type music and it helps. But we only use the music when we are warming up." The warm-up music is something new for the Pacers. But music isn't the only thing new at PBJC 02 DIKES , .A JACKSON JAKES PGA Officials Meeting Here ALL OF THE BRASS OF Thfi Professional Golfers Association of America is now in residence at Palm Beach Gardens, which is to say they have gathered for the annual meeting of the PGA. Since Friday various committees have been meeting in closed sessions at the Palm Beach Towers, each in its own way setting up its position to be presented to the PGA delegates when the formal sessions open Wednesday. All of this is routine and nothing can be expected from these meetings until after it is formally presented to the delegates. The President's dinner Tuesday at the Towers may hold a clue as to what the committees have come up with. One thing Ls certain: A highlight of former PGA annual meetings has been the presentation of the PGA champion. Last year It was Don January. This year it would have been Julius Boros. But the Big Moose will not be here. Julie is one of the pros who adopted the new APG touring group but it is doubtful If he would have ignored his formal presentation to the PGA delegates as their champion. He has, however, a valid reason for not appearing. On Thursday he teams with Lee Trevino, the U.S. open champion, to represent the United States in the World Cup matches which begin at the Circolo Golf Olpiata (and that's a nifty name for a golf club) in Rome. The matches end Sunday. the Pacers also have a fresh look, one which shapes up as a winner for the first time in the four years the school has been playing basketball. At least Pacer Coach Jim Tanner is more opti- I .,;-v ' 11,; . 3 Watt t s-r- -CT- r Tide Trips Tigers By Pass, 16-7 5 - d mistic than he has been in the past three years that have seen Palm Beach record respective marks of 1-18. 5-21 and 12-13. By his own admission, Tanner w ill tell you that his three seasons at Palm Beach have been trying ones, but in the next breath he speaks of the future w ith confidence. "When I started at Palm Beach Junior College," Tanner said, "I predicted that we would have a winning club in three seasons. Last year was the third year and we won three of our first four games before we lost a few plavers for various reasons. "BIT THIS IS THK YKAK. We have to do it this xear. The players feel like Palm lieach has taken enough of its lumps." The Pacers open their regular season Friday niht, hosting Florid Junior Col.ege of Jacksonville and follow' with attractive contests against f-eshmen teams from the University of Florida, Florida State and Miami, plus both Miami D.ide teams and Indian River during the rem ander of the season. What typeot season is Tanner looking for'.' "If we can break ,5IH) with the type of rugged schedule we play," he said, "we will have a good season. I feel like if we can play as good or hi tter than we did last year we could possibly lake mr district." Teams In addition to Palm lieach that make up District IV nclude Miami Dade North. Miami-Dade Soul h, Florida Keys, ndlan Hlvci . Itrowaid and Fdlson. "I feel like the league will definitely be stronger tills c;ir," "anncr explained. "Any school could win It." While Tanner Is beaming wllll enthusiasm, he Is also cautious. Utter incnini let are lung lasting. Kach seasmi, I'.iltti lle.u h has lost several kev plavers due to bad grades.

Forwards Gary Odurn, Palm Beach; Charlie Wilson, Morchead, Ky.; Herman Jordan, Lake Worth; and Jack McLaughlin, Lake Worth. PALM BEACH OFFERED A deliberate offense last year, waiting for the good shot. While Tanner does not claim his club will be trying to run with opponents this year, he does say. Palm Beach will be more of an offensive club than it was a year ago. "You play the type of game that best suits vour personnel," Tanner said. "We are not going to go out there and run the entire game but I will say we will run more than in the past." Tanner a self-acclaimed man-to-man defensive coach Insists he may switch to a zone defense some this year. "I am not much of zone coach. . .1 guess it is because I have not had much luck with it. But then a;;ain this year I feel like I have the players who can play the zone defense without getting hurt. Last year we had players like Tom MeClaren and Shawn McElroy who were small hut would really scrap on a man-to-man defense and really worry their man. But with a zone people could have shot over them. "This year our players are bigger and maybe a little slower and I think it will be advantageous to switch defenses occassional-ly." But Tanner knows It Is going to take more than a few bars of "Sweet Georgia Brown" or his coaching to bring Palm Beach Its first winning campaign. "If we have a winning team, It will be the players," Tanner said. "I don't care what anyone says, it ls the players that make a good team. Basketball ls 90 per cent talent and II) per cent psychology." BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (LTD - Alabama quarterback Scm, Hunter passed for two touchdowns and set up a field goal to lead the 18th-ranked Crimson Tide to a 16-7 victory over Louisiana State Saturday. With a capacity crowd of 67.292 watching. Hunter passed for touchdowns of 11 yards to Pete Jilleba and 16 to Donnle Sutton and hit on passes on Vi and 24 yards to set up Mike Dean's ERASER BOROS HOLZMAN 29-yard field goal. LSU's lone score came In the third period when a 15-yard run by fullback Kenny Newfield briefly gave the Bengals a 7-6 lead with six minutes gone in the Sub Leads Irish Rout second half. But the Alabama defense took hold, slopping one drive after the Bengals got a first down on the seven, and containing LSI! the rest of the game. Alabama took the opening kickoff 79 yards, mixing the. running of Jilleba and halfback Pete Moore, until Hunter set up a perfect screen pass to Moore that was good for 57 vards to the LSU 12. Morgan cracked the line for one and then Jilleba caught Hunter's first TD pass. Hunter passed 18 yards to Jilleba and 24 to end Bobby Swaf-ford to bring the ball to the three. A missed pitch-out set the Tide back to the 11 and after two incomplete passes, Dean toed his field goal. Seeking insurance with a 9-7 lead, Alabama begun marching once more in the fourth quarter after Hall intercepted a Gilbert pass at the Tide's 33. Hunter passed to Hunter Husband for I ' j .

The committee meetings will undoubtedly spell this out. There are a couple of factors that lend credence to Arnold Palmer's prediction for tour golf next year. Arnie, now playing In the Hawaiian Open, said in Australia, that he plans to take a three or four months vacation after Hawaii because "I'm tired." He said earlier that In 1969, pro golf would have a mixed up year. Arnie did not appear, in his quotes, to be too enthusiastic over It, even though he belatedly joined the APG. Billy Casper has solved his stalemate between the PGA and the APG by joining the British PGA and plans to play its circuit this summer. He likes Great Britain and the people over there . . . The PGA will get a new president this week. Unless there is a floor fight and there never has been Leo Eraser of the Atlantic City CC in Northfield, N.J., present secretary of the PGA, is slated to succeed Max Elhin of the Burning Tree Club, Bcthes-da, Md., as president. Also nominated for vice-presidents will be John Boda of the Andover (Mass.) CC to succeed Wendell Ross of the Pequot Club, Sloningham, Conn., Dugan Aycock of the Lexington (N.C.) CC to succeed William Clark of the Hillendale CC, Phoenix, Md., and Howard Morette of the Twin Lakes CC, Kent, Ohio, to succeed Jim Rudolph of the National Cash Register CC in Dayton, Ohio. Florida PGA Tour. . . The Florida Winter tour sponsored by the Florida Section of the PGA now numbers 12 tournaments with the first of them concluding toda at the Quail Hollow G & CC In Tampa. The section has also given sponsorship to a Pro-Am at the Royal Palm Beach G. and CC. Feb. 4. This event, with one pro and three amateurs, will be limited to the first 50 teams. Royal Palm is adding $1,000 to the overall prize money which makes this just about tops In its field this season . . .

Over Pitt SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Sophomore Joe Theismann and little Coley O'Brien, erstwhile understudy to injured Terry Hanratty, teamed for five touchdowns in a 56-7 Notre Dame football rout of pathetic Pittsburgh Saturday. Theismann, replacing star quarterback Hanratty who suffered a severe knee injury in practice, brilliantly directed the Fighting Irish to a 43-0 lead in the first 27 minutes of play. O'Brien, who basked in Han-ratty's shadow for two previous seasons, scored three straight touchdowns as a halfback in Notre Dame's 26-point second quarter. Two of O'Brien's three touchdowns came on passes of 15 to 31 yards from the 163-pound Theismann who scored himself on runs of 10 and 9 yards as Notre Dame stunned Pitt with 23 points In the first quarter. Notre Dame reserves took over three minutes before half time which ended with an Irish lock up of the game at 49-0. Pitt's 159-pound Dave Havern 21, sent Morgan for 13 yards and then moved to the four before he lost 11 yards trying to pass. Morgan also lost a yard before Hunter hit on his second TD to Sutton.
