12 - Thurs., June 27, 1963 Redlands Daily Facts John Van, ex-Terrier, signs with St. Louis Foniier Redlands high baseball star John Van, yesterday signed a professional contract with the St. horns Cardinals, it was announced today by Southern California Scout Nelson Burbruik. Van, 18, was the top pitcher for the Terriers two years ago and was also an outstanding fielder with a big bat When he wasn't on the mound for the RHS nine he would be playmg right field for the Terriers. He carried most of the pitching load for coach Joe DeMaggio's Terriers and showed superb control during his stints on the mound, during the Citrus Belt League season. Van will leave Redlands Sunday for the Cards' Class A farm club in Brunswick, Ga., in the Georgia - Florida League. He wiJI be tried out both as a pitcher and in the outfield, Burbrink indicated. The deUils of Van's signing were not realeased, but he apparently inked for less than the $8,000 figure, since any amount in excess of that would place him in the bonus category, where he could be drafted by another club if not retained on the St. Louis roster. The 6-3, 185 pounder lettered in JOHN VAN basketball along with baseball while at Redlands high. He played center and was one of the leading scorers for the team. He gained All-Citrus Belt League honors in 1962 for baseball and was a starter as a junior in If you had just won the United Stales Open and became, for one day at least, the biggest sports story in the country, what would you do — break open a bottle of bubbly, get all spiffed, hit the biggest jouit in town? ... Not if you're Julius Boros . . . "J" might just as well have won the Missoula Open ... He skipped The Counto' Club at Brookline almost as quick as he could get into a car, without even bothering to change his clothes . . . At 10 p.m., Boros, towed by Ed Carter (World Tournament of Golf director), showed up at a restaurant outside Hartford, Conn, . . still wearing the same gray sweater in which he teed off for his championship playoff that afternoon . . . and was turned away because the kitchen was closing ... so the U.S. Open champion had to scrounge around looking for an all-night hamburger joint . . . Boros is a husky guy they call Jloose, too, but with his 43-year old tummy bulge he no longer cuts a fine figure. . . There's a good reason for his methodical plodding around a course, unhurried at all times — doctors told him years ago he had a heart murmur. . . "I've kinda slowed down," admits Julius, "to a shuffle." . . . except when he steps up to hit the ball. .. He's almost as quick as Doug Ford whipping into his swing without anxiously addressing the ball. . . . Boros' biggest worry before tee ing off was what might happen if be hit a couple of balls into the drink. . . . Somebody had broken into his locker and stolen a dozen new balls, leaving him with just three, and his golf glove. . , The guys least surprised by his victory were his tour mates be- STANDINGS NaMcnal League W L Pef.

Boros on his philosophy of golf: "I just go out and hit the bail. When I'm hitting it well, I can go well on just about any golf course. Reason I've always done well in the Open is that I play the shots on the fringe in the rough fairly well." . . . Before Jack}' Cupit went out for the playoff, wife Delys (who fol lowed him all the way around) farewelled: "Well, Little David, go on out and get the Philistines. ... It was a little more heartening than the cry of the lady from the gallery as Jacky walked up to his lie in the rough on the fairway of the 72nd hole, needing a par to tie Boros and Amie Palmer: "Don't blow it now, Jacky!" . . . The youngest of the five golfing Cupits was christened Jackie . . . but in the sixth grade at Longview, Tex., he shortened it himself to Jacky because it gave him just five letters matching his last name.... At one time he caddied for older brother Buster. ... He has a perpendicular backswing that horrifies the purist . . A pro golfer's timetable: "I've played 21 straight days of golf," sighed Cupit, "and I've had it I'm taking off — two days" ... which gave him and Delys their first chance to see Niagara Falls as they joined the Dave Ragans en route to the next tournament in Clevelend. . . . Amie Palmer blew the playoff for good when he lost his temper after a short chip from the grassy embankment edgmg a stand trap at the 10th green. ... He hooked his 11th hole tee shot into the woods to start his horrendous triple bogey . . . Palmer was so upset he didn't case his chip onto the fairway and instead ricocheted the ball off a tree into the middle of an old, rotted stump. . . . The only way he could get out of there was to swipe at the ball with the toe of his wedge — and almost conked his tired gallery tromper in the process. . . . Maybe Amie — his stomach upset, too — needed that bartender he found at the British Open last year. . . . Queasy then, he asked for a slug of blackberry brandy before the last round ... "I don't •ave none o' that mate," said the barkeep, "but Oi'U give ye a touch of something better." . . . Pahner took two quick slugs, forgot all his troubles and won Between you'n'me, too bad Tony Lema bogyed the iast two holes of the Open to lose the lead. . . Fred Corcoran had the biggest champagne binge in the history of Boston planned for the Ritz that night if his boy. , , . 1961. He also won CBL honors for his basketball ability. This spring John was one of the stars for the VCLA freshman nine where he both pitched and played in the outfield. He had planned to agam try out for the Los Angeles Dodgers rookies this summer. Last year he played on the team for the full summer schedule including two games in San Bernardino. Jolin is one of the top base- ballers to come out of Redlands high in recent years. Along with his All-CBL honors in baseball and basketball he was named to the All-California Interscholastic Federation third team as an out fielder. Following his two month tour with the St. Louis farm team Van plans to return to Redlands and continue his schooling, probably at San Bernardino Valley Col lege. Next spring he will report to the Cards regular pre-season traming camp at Homestead, Florida. Jolrn is the son of the \V. K. Vans who reside at 1545 West Cresent avenue in Redlands. Cleveland course favors fairway accuracy CLEVELAND (UPI) - The golfers who hit 'em straight rather than long were favored in the crack field of 150 who started out today after the $22,000 first place money in the $110,000 Cleveland Open tournament "There's no premium on hitting them long here, but there is in hitting them straight," said Mike Souchak, hoping to get back on the winning track because "I always play well in the Cleveland area." Souchak e.\plained that to stick on the hard, fast greens of the 6,618-yard Beechmont Country Club course with its par of 35-36— 71, "you have to play your approach shots off fairway lies, otherwise you are in trouble." Although big Mike is in the long, rather than straight, hitter class, he received a lot of support because he always has done well in this section. The last time here, in 1959, he finished one stroke behind Dow Finsterwald m the 1959 Carting Open. In that straight hitters class, the pros put U. S. Open champion Julius Boros, Gene Littler, Doug Sanders, Gardner Dickinson and Billy Ma.\well ahead of the "big three" of Amrid Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. Boros was being discounted a lot because he admitted he was tired from his Open playoff victory over Jacky Cupit and Palmer on Sunday at Brooklme and really considered withdrawing from this one. "But I could use the money," smiled Boros, who has won $44,153 in the last six weeks. Gives Others Hope Boros' Open victory gave the other pros hope for he proved that Pahner, Nicklaus and Player were not unconquerable. As a matter of fact, Nicklaus, the defending champion, even failed to make the cut, and Player finished in a tie for eighth place. "But don't sell any one of the three short," cautioned Souchak. "Just throw out what Nicklaus did last week. This is another week and another tournament, and what happened last week is history." He agreed with those who figure that Nicklaus will really be gunning for this one to redeem himself in the eyes of golf fans for his Open failure. 220, javelin to feature all­ comers meet The 220 dash and the javelin throw will be the featured events m the third Inland Track and Field association all-comers track meet at San Bernardino Valley College. Registration will be held at 6 p.m. with the first events starting at 6:30. In the junior high division the 220 dash will be featured. The open division is for high school, college or ex-college runners or weight men. A total of 14 events will be run in the open and 12 in the junior high class. In last week's meet Redlands Dick Ramborger set a new national mark for the deaf in the javelin throw with a toss of 198 feet three inches. A large number of Redlands runners and jumpers are expected to be in action tomorrow night.

(UPI) — Jim Trimble, a 58-year-old weekend golfer from Staunton, Va., believes his seven-iron brings him luck. Don't debate the point with him today because Trimble accomplished a feat against which the odds can be calculated in astronomical figures: two holes- in-one on one 18-hole round. Trimble shot the first hole-in- one on 4he 170-yard eighth hole on an Augusta County course Wednesday and clicked for the second one on the 179-yard final hole. He said most golfers don't re- aUze the things you can do with a seven-iron. Little Albie performs mighty feats By United Press Intemafionai Little man, what now? It's a good question American Leaguers ask about Albie Pearson, the pint-sized outfielder who performs herculean feats for the Los Angeles Angels. Five-foot, 5-inch, 141-pound Albie is a cinch to be one of the American League's startuig outfielders in this year's All-Star Game because if his rivals can overlook his tiny physique they can't overlook his .313 average. But what's more important to the Angels, struggling to surge back into the thick of the American League pennant race, is that 28-year-old Albie from Alhambra, Calif., delivers when the team needs it most Like Wednesday night when the Angels whipped the Baltimore Orioles, 3-1 and 3-2, in a twi-night doubleheader and vaulted past Cleveland and Baltunore into fifth place, 6V4 games off the lead. Pearson singled and scored the Angels' first run of the opener and then tripled home the tyuig run and scored the winning run in the eighth innuig of the night cap. Wins First Start Paul Foytack, making his first start since acquired from Detroit, went 8 1-3 innings to win the opener and then Ken McBride pitched a three-hitter and struck out seven to score his ninth vie tory in the second game. The New York Yankees took a one-game grip on first place as they beat the Chicago White Sox, 3-2, the Minnesota Twins downed the Detroit Tigers, 6-1, and the Boston Red Sox nipped the Cleve land Indians, 6-5, in other Ameri can League action. Washington at Kansas City was rained out Bob Rodgers homered for the Angels in the first game and Leon Wagner hit No. 16 of the season and his first at home for Los Angeles. Pearson, who's had his ups and downs since winning the AL rookie of the year award in 1958, is batting .313 with 82 hits and 37 runs scored. First Of Season The Yankees beat the White Sox for the first time this sea son after four straight losses with the help of homers by Roger Maris and Tom Tresh. It was No. 16 of the year for Sir Roger, and Tresh also contributed a double to the Yankees' seven-hit attack on Gary Peters and Jim Brosnan. Whitey Ford, aided by Hal Reniff in the last 2 1-3. innings, got his nth win of the season agamst three defeats. Bob Allison of the Twins hit a pair of homers to take over the AL leadership with 19 homers, 52 runs batted in and 53 runs scored, and Earl Battey hit his 16th hom cr of the season in an attack that enabled Dick Stigman to score his sixth win. Gus Triandos homered for the Tigers' run. Eddie Bressoud's second homer of the night came in the ninth inning and lifted relief pitcher Jack Lamabe to his fourth win without a loss for the Red Sox. Russ Nixon and Chuck Schilltag also homered for the Red Sox while Joe Adcock connected for the Indians.

They go wearily on Pension plan keeps pros in action for five years By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sporta Writer CLEVELAND (UPI) - A number of National Football League players whose bruises from last season have barely healed are in a squeeze today which will send them wearily and reluctantly back into action for another campaign. These are the four-year men who have just about bad it in the rough and tumble mayhem and had anticipated returement But the truth of the matter is that they simply can't afford to quit now. That's because of the NFL pension plan, which requires that a player compete at least five years —with a first year credit beginning m 1957. it's amazing what an effect the pension plan has had," explained Creighton Miller, the former Notre Dame All-America who, as a Cleveland attorney, is counsel for the Players Association. "The owners originally resisted it but sow it is a great sellmg point in talking to college graduates who otherwise might sign with the American Football League or decide to play in C^ada." Under terms of the pension plan, a five-year man will receive $430 a month at age 65; $650 a month if he plays 10 years and $830 a month if he plays 15 years. "There's hope that eventually we will bruig it down to age 50," Miller laughed. "As rough as this game has become, most of the guys don't thmk anybody can live to be 65. And, as for the 13-year- man, he'll need more than $830 a month to keep his doctor bills paid." The rangy Miller practices law in the same buildhig with his uncle, Don Miller, who was one of the "Four Horsemen" of Notre Dame. He never was in practice with his uncle, however, and has been counsel for the Players Association since 1956. Pete Betzlaff of the Phfladel- phia Eagles Is president of the Association and will meet with Miller, along with secretary-treasurer John Reger of the Pittsburgh Steelcrs and vice president Bernie Parrish of tiie Cleveland Browns, this week to review the pension plan setup. A Juicy Plum It's a juicy plum when you consider that this year approximately $700,000 will go into the fund. This includes $450,000 from tele­ vision rights to the championship game; 75 per cent of the proceeds of the Miami playoff bow] between the divisional runnersup; $15,000 from the Pro Bowl game and $100,000 in endorsements. It becomes ever juicier when you take into consideration that this fund will not be tapped for some time to come. "We're hoping that commissioner Pete Rozelle will see fit to make the plan retroactive for a few years, anyhow," Miller said. "Fellows vbo pioneered the pension plan such as Kyle Rote, Norm Van Brocklin, Don Colo, Adrian Burke and Gordie Soltaa aren't covered now. We think they should be included." But, with nobody being certain whether Rozelle will approve of the plan be'ag made retroactive, the current four-year men are strictly on the spot. "I told them they'd better play just to protect themselves," Miller explained. "You never beard so many howls in all your life." However, with this kmd of future protection for another season of play they're girding themselves for another session in the crunchmg pro football wars. But, as the man said, wearily and reluctantly. By United Press International Jrni Gilliam resents being called "Junior" and so his Los Angeles Dodger teammates refer to him simply as "the cool man." No nickname could be more appropriate for a fellow who takes the world in stride. He's played in at least 144 games in every year he's been with the Dodgers since 1953, and yet every spring it seems he has to win his job all over again from some highly- touted newcomer. Comes the middle of a hot pennant race, however, and Gilliam is not only in the Imeup day m and day out but also delivers the clutch hits that win important games. The kids who thought they had him beat out of a job in the spring read about 'em in the newspapers of minor league to«-ns. The National League pennant race is about as hot as it can get and so it's no surprise that GilKam is red-hot. The Dodgers have won four straight games and Gilliam has delivered the game-wuming blow ui three of 'em, includuig Wednesday night | when his two-run eighth-inning double sparked Los Angeles to a 5-2 victory over the Cmcinnati Reds. The victory completed a Dodger sweep of a three-game series — the first time they won three in a row in Cmdnnati since 1953. Wins Eighth Game Left-handed relief ace Ron Per- ranoski shut out the Reds for the last 2 2-3 innings to win his eighth game against two losses. Jim Slaloney, seeking his 12th win, struck out 11 batters and went into the eighth inning with a 2-2 tie but a walk to Perranos- ki and Gordie Coleman's wild throw on a sacrifice attempt set the stage for Gilliam's big blow. The victory enabled the Dodgers to remain a half-game behind the first-place St. Louis Cardinals, wiio toKJed the San Francisco Giants, 6-5. The Houston Colts beat the Milwaukee Braves, 7-2, in 13 innings, the Philadelphia Phillies downed the Pittsburgh Pirates, 6-2, and the New York MeU defeated the Chicago Cubs, 8-6, in other National League games. Beyer Paces Cards Charlie James singled home George Altman with the winning run for the Cardinals. Bobby Shaatz pitched to only one batter but picked up his third win. Ken Boyer drove m four runs with a homer and two singles for the Cardinals while Orlando Cepeda homered and Joe AmalCtano bad three hits for the Giants. Carl Warwick started the Coils' game-winning 13th-innins rally with his fourth single of the night and scored the tie breaking run on Bob Lillis' single. The Colts, who snapped a ICKgame losing streak, went wi to add four runs and sew up Hal Woodeshickis seventh win. The Colts ended a string of 30 consecutive scorele^ innings when Al Spangler hoip- ered in the sixth. Frank Boiling had three hits for the Braves. Cal McLish pitched a sbe-hitter to win his sLxth game for the Phillies and deal Pittsburgh's Bob Friend his sixth defeat against nine wins. McLish, Johnny CalC- son, Tony Gonzalez and Frank Torre had two hits each in the PhiUies" attack while Donn Oen- denon and Bill Virdon had two hits each for the Pirates. Tim Harkness' grand slam homer with two out in the bottom of the 14th inning lifted the MeU to their third victory in four games after the Cubs went ahead, 6-4, on a two-run. inside- the-park homer by Billy Williams in the top of the inning. A total of 12 pitchers saw action during the four-hour and nme-minute struggle. AAU Decathlon championships start Friday COKVALLIS, Ore. (UPD- The 45th annual National AAU Decathlon championships start here Friday with 26 athletes shooting for both the national title and the coveted trip to Russia that will go to the top two finishers.

Edstrom, former Oregon star, nipped Mulkey at this year's Kansas Relays. The large entry list has forced meet officials to run the competition in four flights, two each in the mornmg and afternoon. The four top-seeded athletes will run in the last flight Friday and Saturday along with Dick Emberger of the Camp Pendleton, Calif. Martaes and Russ Hudges of Oxnard Air Force Base. Friday's slate will include the 100-meters, broad jump, sbotput high jump and 400 meters. \Vhile on Saturday, the events are 110- meter high hurdles, discus, pole vault, javelin and 1500 meters.

The angler load will be limited to 49, Gronsky reported, which allows extra fishing space on the boat which is certified to carry 60 passengers. Liston trains to music LAS VEGAS (UPD-The tune of "Night Train," flying instructions and Cassius Clay each played a part in the drills of heavy-weight boxing champion Sonny Liston and Floyd Patterson. The curious mixture was another facet to the fight preparations now pursued by listoi and Patterson for their scheduled 15 - round contest at Cooventiim Center July 22. Liston worked 11 rounds on the bag, ropes—to the tune of "Night Train"—and calisthenics Wednesday. He was expected to start sparring today. Es-cbamp Patterson accounted for be flying instructions. He closed his conditioning drills Wednesday and proceeded to the airport. Floyd hopes to get a pilot's license. Like Liston, Patterson was ex- Polish up their halos Angels climb back into first division LOS ANGELES (UPI) — The halos that the Los Angeles Angels wear on their caps glowed a little brighter this June day as the cherubs unfolded their wings and flew east after having climbed back into the American League's first division. The glow came from their best home stand of the year that was climaxed Wednesday night when the Angels swept a doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles by scores of 3-2 and 3-1. The twin victories moved the Angels back mto the first division as they jumped from seventh to fifth place, passing Baltimore and Cleveland. And the brightest halo was over pitcher Ken McBride who posted his sixth straight win for the month in capturing the second game after a tense pitching duel with Baltimore's Mike McCormick. Ex-Tiger Roars But some of the glow reflected on the latest addition to the Angels' roster, Paul Foytack, who won the first game for his initial win of the season and his first since he donned the halo caps the Cherubs wear. The Angels closed out the 13- game home stand with 10 victories and for the month thus far they have a record of 17 wins and 10 defeats. Los Angeles was in the first division the last time May 11 when they were tied for fifth. Of the two pitchers. Foytack had less trouble as the Angels backed up his three-hit pitching with three early runs in the first game. And when the ex-Detroit hurler gave up a homer to Luis Aparicio iiv the ninth, star reliefer Julio Navarro came hi and quickly put out the fure by retiring the final two batters. The first game was featured by homers off the bats of Leon Wag­ ner and Bob Rodgers. For Wagner it was his 16th four-bagger but only his first at home this season. And Rodgers who returned to the lineup for the first time since he injured an ankle June 2 and smacked the four-base blow in his fu-st time at bat Little Albie Pearson was the batting star of the second game as he brought the Angels from behind in the eighth inning with a triple that scored Bob Peny who had Walked. That tied the score 2-2. Then Jim Fregosi's sacrifice fly brought the outfielder home with the winnuig run. ' Baltimore right fielder Russ Snyder caught Fregosi's fly ip foul territory for a mental miscue. But both of the Orioles runs were unearned because of an error by Angel thkd baseman Felix Torres that put Bob Johnson Base. John Powell then followed with a towering homer to centerfield that temporarily gave the Orioles a 2-1 lead. McBride also gave up only three hits in pitching his seventh complete game for his ninth win of the season. His pitching victim was McCormick who allowed only four hits in the 7 2-3 innings he worked. Albie's Cousin McCormick is a cousin by marriage of Pearson and the Angel outfielder said he was sorry he had to help defeat his relative but that was the way the game went. "I hope Mike wins 20 games, but not against the Angels," Pearson said. "He pitched a real good game and I'm sorry he was the guy we beat." The Angels resume action Friday night in Detroit in a twmi^t doubleheader with manager Bill Rigney indicating that Danny Osinski and Bob Turley would be his starting pitchers agaujst the Tigers. League to try to revive Oakland Raiders, Jets BUFFALO. N.Y. (UPI) - The drive to revive the New York Jets and Oakland Raiders was the major concern of the American Football League executive committee today. The controversial question of cutting rights confronted league owners as they moved into the second and final day of a summer meeting. The problem fac- mg the league was whether to pass a resolution giving the Jets and Raiders first chance at all players released by American, National and Canadian league teams. Coaches and general managers will meet Friday. The first half of the league's equalization draft in May was somethmg less than productive. The Jets selected only two players fn)m a list of eligible players, and the Raiders picked just one. Other business on the agenda today included scouting regulations, cutdown dates, pre-season schedules and the length of train- mg camps. The executive committee traded views for nearly ei^t hours Wednesday and approved several resolutions, highlighted by the revision of the rule dealhig with the signing of college players. When a college player is signed. pected to start sparring sessions today. Tlie extroverted Clay figured in yesterday's agenda by long dis- stance. Clay informed promoter Mel Greb that he was coming west to watch the two boxers meet for the "right" to fight Cassius. Commissioner Joe Foss' signature will not be required. The contract will be binding unless the commissioner rejects it within 10 days after it reaches his office. The league also reported on the tightening of security regulations. Each team has engaged or is in the process of hiring some individual or organization to handle security, Foss said. He said security measures by individual teams will be backstopped by a continuing safety program carried out by league headquarters.
