16 - Wed., June 26, 1963 Redlands Daily Facts Still smarting all over Nicklaus determined to atone for flop in Open LAST ONE IN CLE\TLAXD fVPl) - Jack Nicklaus, still smarting over his sorry showing in the U.S. Open is deterniined to atone for it—and regain the top spot on golf's money winning list — when he tees off Thursday in the 5110,000; Cleveland Open. Nicklaus, who failed to make the cut at Brookline, Mass., last- week, has vowed to friends he; viU make up for that disappoint-) ment, and he can get back on! top of the money winning list byi capturing the $22,000 first prize; in this event. ! Right now he trails Arnold! Palmer and Julius Boros, the new U.S. Open king, who between them have picked up most of the loot in the richest five j Weeks of tournament play in j golfing history. i In the five tournaments starting here, a total of S402,000—not counting a lot of ridi side benefits — have been at stake. And of the total of $81,000 aUotted for first place money in the five events, Palmer and Boros between them have picked up $60,470 during this "gold dust stretch.'" Palmer made $32,000 although he competed in only two of the four tourneys preceding this one, while Boros, who played in all j four, won $28,740. Palmer took the $25,000 jackpot in the $100,000 Thunderbird and picked up{ $7,000 in the U.S. Open, which he lost in a playoff with Boros and young Jacky Cupit. Boros won S3.400 in the $50,000 Indianapolis Open, the $9,000 first place money in the $50,000 Buick Open, only 5345 in the Thunderbird but thea came back to win the $16,000 top gold in the Open. Those earnings put Palmer at the top of the money winning list with $63.«5, followed by Boros with $59,680 and Nicklaus with 558,690. Should the Ohio strong boy win the marbles in his home state, he would vault back into first place, where he would like to be «-hen he leaves these shores to take a shot at the British Open championship in July. The field will be cut to the low 60 and ties for the final two rounds of play after Friday's second round. In the event of a lie after the final round on Sunday, there will be a sudden death olayoff. Puts team In condition Cubs' Kennedy works miracles with club By OSCAR FRALEY UPl Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - The manager of the year in the major leagues, it seems possible today, well may turn out to be a coach. At least that's the unheralded designation which is applied to Bob Kennedy by the Chicago Cubs even though he is running the ball club. And operating it with such efficiency that the lowly Cubs have roared up from the gloomy National League basement to become a contender. The Cubs still adhere stubbornly to their policy of the last couple of seasons of having a number of "coaches" who took turns Albacore fever slowly rising "Albacore fever" is slowly rising among Southland ocean anglers, and the Department of Fish and Game today predicted there might well be some good fishing for the longfins around San Clemente Island on the Fourth of July holiday weekend. The DFG also rqx)rted some of the findings made by the department's research vessel N. B. Scofield, which recently relumed to port in San Pedro after nearly a month of scouting the migration route of the albacore. Four leaders of the incoming schools were intercepted about 600 miles offshore on June 5. They were small fish, about 5-6 pounds in weight and one or two years old. Two year old albacore are the mainstay of California's troll fishery, which usually accounts for the majority of a season's catch. The Black Douglas, Bureau of Commercial Fisheries research boat, fished west and northwest of the June S catch area and caught at least. SO albacore between June 10 and 12. Two of the fish weighed 15 pounds each and the remainder averaged under seven pounds. The albacore were travelling shoreward in a band of water between 64 and 66 degrees in temperature. Mats sign 26 school stars NEW YORK (UPI) — The New York Mets, hoping to build a future by developing their own young talent, have signed 26 high school and college stars for bonuses estimated to total between S200.000 and $250,000 in recent weeks. The Mets revealed in announcing the signings Monday that almost all the players already are playing with Met farm teams, including catcher Gary Mykkanen of Hawthorne, Calif, who the Slets said "was sought by many clubs." Mykkanen is believed to have received a bonus of about $30,000. Richard Rustek, a 21-year-old pitcher from Notre Dame, was assigned to the Buffalo Bisons of the International League and then reassigned by the Bisons to Salinas of the California League. Including Rustek, Salinas was assigned 10 players, Raleigh of the Carolina League six. Auburn three, and Quincy, 111., of the Midwest League seven. handling the reins, like 10 drivers on a 10-mule team. It is the only team In baseball which doesn't have a manager's contract on file v.ilh the commissioner's office. But, after fruitless experimentation, they finally settled on Kennedy as what might be termed the head coach. If Uicy take him out of the top spot now and retrogress to their old sjstem of alternating coache.? at the head of the bench it is entirely possible that every Cub fan in the land will issue a family ban on chewing gum. For Kennedy, a Wodd War II JIarine fighter pilot, has accomplished seeming miracles with what was expected to be a little more than an eighth place club at best. The itchy-switchy "managerial" policy of the Cubs has had to contribute vastly to thcu- ineffectiveness over the last few seasons. Because almost every year the team's farm system has produced one or more outstanding rookies. Three years ago the Cubs came up with a good one in third baseman Ron Santo. In 1961 they produced two outstanding freshmen in catcher Dick Bertell and outfielder Billy Williams who was voted rookie of the year. Again last year they had the rookie of the year in second baseman Ken Hubbs and an outstanding first year man in outfielder Lou Brock. When you continue to produce good young major leaguers and still remain at or near the bottom of the heap it is obvious that ail of the potential horsepower isn't being generated. In (his case you have to lake a close look at the guy who's pushing the buttons. Without handing Kennedy the whole portfolio, the Cubs obviously came to the conclusion at long last that he was the man for the job. And he's done a good one, jelling the whole operation. Andre Rodgers, at shortstop, was a Giant castoff. Don Landrum. the regular centerfield er. was obtained from the Cardinals as was pitcher Larry Jackson. Patching and fitting eveo'- tliing together was a major problem. Kennedy, who wandered for years through the American League before winding up with the Dodgers in 1957 and had only one term of managerial experience at Salt Lake City last year, made two big moves. He switched Ernie Banks from shortstop to first base without affecting his hitting ability and he established a rigid rotation for his pitchers. The latter step hasn't produced any big winners but with regular work most of his hurlers are on the profit side of the ledger and that's good enough to crowd the leaders in the dog-eat-dog National League race. You might thuik the Cubs would finally give Kennedy a vote of confidence for having kept the team high up in the first division and name him manager. But Phil Wrigley doesn't change his mind easily. It makes you wonder wliether he'd even permit Kennedy to accept "manager of the year" honors if he won them. Koufax wins 4-1 Dodgers break Reds seven-game win streak CINCINTVATI, (UPI) - Cin- cinnatii righthander Jim Maloney, 11-2. brings a seven-game victory skein with him into tonight's game — but it's not likely to bother the Los Angeles Dodgers. The California club began the three-game series by breaking the Reds seven-game winning streak in the opener Monday and Tuesday night won 4-1 to end left­ hander Jim O'TooIe's personal seven-game string of victories. Rookie Nick Willhite will make his third start for the Dodgers since coming up from Spokane. The southpaw shut out the Chicago Cubs 2-0 in his first experience in the majors and lost 2-1 to St. Louis the last time out. In Tuesday night's battle of two of the National League's leading lefthanders. Sandy Koufax emerged with his 12th win of the season against only 3 losses, and O'TooIe was handed his fourth defeat in 17 decisions. After a rough start, Koufax struck out nine batters, allowed only six hits and registered his 10th complete game of the season. Sandy's earned run average dropped to 1.68. Cincinnati jumped to a 1-0 lead in the first inning on a walk to Tom Harper and a triple by Vada Pinson, who has a streak of 14 games in which he has hit safely. Dodger second baseman Jim Gilliam, w1io is working on a seven-game hitting streak, led the hitting attack with two doubles and a single. Gilliam's first double in the third inning was followed by another two-bagger by Willie Davis to knot the score at 1-1. The second baseman's second double — off the leftfield scoreboard — drove in Maury Wills with the go-ahead run in the eighth inning. Tommy Davis made the score 3-1 by singling home Gil liam. T. Davis' two hits in four plate appearances put his batting average at .335 — tied with Roberto Clemente of Pittsburgh for the league lead. Ron Fairly, who filled in for Bill Skowron at first base in the late innings, drove his sixth homer of the year into the rightfield seats in the ninth off O'TooIe. Hurls 250th victory Roberts sees no end to his pitching career LOS ANGELES (UPI) — Robin Roberts said today that he sees no end to his pitdiing career as long as he can keep throwing as well as he did Tuesday night when he hurled his 250th major league victory. The 36-year-old veteran came through with a masterful mound performance in achieving the milestone win, blanking the Los Angeles Angels on four hits while going the entire way to pilch the Baltimore Orioles to a 10-0 victory. It was the biggest shutout margin in the short history of the Angels and Roberts gave the Los Angeles hitters a lesson in control pitching. Arm Feelt Stronger "My arm seems to feel stronger now than it has in some time," the grinning Roberts said after the game. "I hope to keep on pitching as long as I can be of help to a club." Roberts currently is third in the majors amongactive pitchers in total victories, surpassed only by Warren Spahn of the Milwaukee Braves and Early Wj-nn of the Cleveland Indians. And compared to them, Roberts is a youngster. Spahn is 42 years of age and Wynn is 43. Big Jim Gentile provided Roberts with the most help at the plate, snappmg out of a batting slump to drive in six runs on two doubles and a solo homer. But Roberts, a better than average hitter for a pitcher, aided h i s cause by driving in U'o runs with a single. Enfoyed Every Minute "I've enjoyed every minute of every game I've won over the last 16 years," Roberts said. "None of them have come easy but I wouldn't trade the thrills I've received for anj-thing." It was Roberts' amazing control that bothered the Angels most. The veteran drew the praise of Los Angeles manager Bill Rigney for the way he kept moving the ball around. "Roberts kept changing speed and never seemed to pitch to the same spot twice," Rigney said. Chance Wat Victim The victim of Roberts' second shutout of the season and 37th of his career was 22-year-old Dean Chance, who once was the property of the Orioles and was drafted from their farm system by the Angels. Roberts said he used four pitdi- es — two curves, a fast ball and a change of speed ball but he alternated throwmg sidearm and overhand. The Angels and Orioles go at it again tonight in a twi-night doubleheader. For the home club, Paul Foytack, 0-1, and Ken McBride, 8-6, dre^v the mound assignments. Opposing them will be Ike Delock, 1-4, and Mike McCormick, 2-4. At Empire Bowl: Morning Ladies Handicap High Game and Series — Mary Melcher 222, 519. 200 Club — Mar}' .Melcher 222.

By United Press International Forget the National League's pennant race for a moment and take a gander at its race for the batting championship. It's a tournament of champions involving 1960 champ Dick Croat of the St. Louis Cardinals, 1961 titlist Roberto Clemente of the Pittsburgh Pirates and 1362 king Tommy Davis of the Los Angeles Dodgers. And there's even an uninvited fourth hopeful — the Cardinals' Bill White, who has challenged in the past but never quite made it. The race today shows Davis and Clemente tied for the lead at .335 each and Groat and White tied for second at .333 each. Davis moved up three points Tuesday night when he contributed two singles to an 11-hit attack that helped Sandy Koufax and the Dodgers down the Cincinnati Reds, 4-1. White had three hits and Groat a key double, meanwhile, as the Cardinals topped the San Francisco Giants, 6-5, and moved back into first place. The Cardinals hold a half-game lead over both their chief rivals, with the Dodgers second by si.v percentage points and the Giants Fish and Game men cited Two veteran law enforcement officers with the Department of Fish and Game in Southern California were honored in Sacranjen- to recently for devoting 25 years of service to the State. DFG Durector Walter T. Shannon presented gold pins and engraved certificates to Patrol Captain Henry G. Shebley of San Ber- nardmo and Warden John J. Barry of Canoga Park. A holder of the coveted Governor's Medal of Valor, Captain Shebley lives in Highland and heads up wardens in the San Bernardino patrol district. He won the medal for a 1958 incident in which he risked his life to disarm a beserk hunter who had killed one man and was threatening the lives of others. Warden Barry is the DFG's pollution coordinator for Southern California and the Inyo-Mono area. He is the region's liaison man with water pollution control boards and is a key figiure in the DFG's continuing efforts to prevent or abate pollution of state waters. BAD IMPRESSION POMONA, Calif.

Frank Hardin, 21, vibo pleaded guilty to two counts of arson, also was ordered to pay for the damage he had caused.
