(Pat) O'Dea, Wisconsin's famed kicking star of 65 seasons ago, who enlered football's Hall of Fame one day bc- ore his death. The 90-year-old native of Aus- ralia died Wednesday at Moffelt Hospilal following a two-months' llness. Two events brighlened he last days of a man who was born on St. Patrick's Day. He not only formally entered he game's Hall of Fame at Rut- ers on Tuesday, but had received a get well message from ·esident Kennedy a week before. The C h i e f Executive, urging O'Dea to get well, characterized imself as "a longtime admirer of your fine sports record." Amos Alonzo S l a g g , who coached at the University- of Chicago when O'Dea was starring or Wisocnsin, said that he was saddened to hear of his death. "I remember Pat O'Dea quite veil," the 99-year-old Slagg said at his nursing home in Stockton, Calif. "And I join in the general iorrow over his passing." O'Dea already is enshrined in Visconsin's athletic Hall of Fame at Milwaukee. There a plaque commemorates him as "one ol the grealesl all-around kickers of American college football." SPORTS HUMBOLDT STMJVDARDThursday, April 5, 1962, P. 25 Loggers, Crusaders Set VP EX? · For 'Big One' Saturday Eureka High pitcher Ron Harmon and St. Bernard's hurler Tom Burger lead their nines into action Saturday in what will be the H-DN league's biggest game so far' this season. The two veteran chuckers will be hurling off the Albce Stadium mound. It will be the third Eureka-St. Bernard's meeting of the season but the first that counts n H-DN standings. · St. Bernard's has a 1-0 mark n loop play so far. They downed McKinleyvillc 11-0. Eureka has lumped Ferndale 7-1. Both coaches -- Ray Mechals f St. Bernard's and Keith Daring of Eureka -- have predicted hat pitching will decide the outcome of the game. Mechals added an important qualification however, pointing out hat support will be another key actor. The importance of a good de- ense was demonstrated last sea- on by Burger and the Crusaders, le posted a M record and hurled ai G innings, but walked 21 and truck out only 27. Harmon didn't throw in league play last season. He's taken over s the top Logger pitcher, how ver, and has become stronger vith the extra work. Eureka lost to St. Bernard's 5-4 in their first practice tilt. The Loggers bounced back to win the next meeting 5-1. St. Bernard's starting nine features some of the top players from last season's unbeaten club. They include second baseman Gary Owens, shortstop Jim Bonomini, third baseman Paul Bareilles, leftfielder Leon Flinchpaugh, centerfielder Carl Del Grande, and Burger. Flinchpaugh has been moved from his catching spot, however, to strengthen the outfield. He is recognized as one of the lop receivers in the league. Oilier Crusaders starters are catcher Bob Allen, first baseman Tini Allen and righlfielder Paul Ivancich. Eureka's slarling lineup isn't set. Coach Keith Darling has had trouble coming up with a final second-short combination. Norm Pederson and Mark Melendy are battling for the shortslop job, while Dan Yeider and Ron Dias ire Ihe second base candidates. Mike Wolfe or John Schrader will slarl in right field. The rest of the first nine includes Harmon pitching, Jim Pope catching, Bob Johnson at first, Lance Lawry at third, and Gary Ballew and Mike Eezzonico in the oulfield. 'Jacks Prep For FWC Openers Ace fireballer Larry Taylor gels Ihe call in Ihe first game of a Far Western Conference doubleheader Saturday when ]Iuraboldt Slate entertains heavy-hitting San Francisco State. Taylor starts wheeling and deal ing at noon. The first game is scheduled for seven innings. If it goes extra innings the second contest will be cut from Uie scheduled nine to seven. Al Snarski, who because of his busy bat has earned a starting spot in left field in the first game, is scheduled to start on the mound in the nightcap. Tom Leitz will stand by for relief chores. "We've really had a good week of practice," declared Coach Ced Kinzer. "We know that San Francisco State is a strong ball club, but we figure that we'll be ready for them. We're not conceding a thing." Kinzer plans to devote the remaining two practice scissions to "working on the short stuff and correcting minor batting and fielding flaws. , The 'Jacks have progressed rapidly since splitting their initial series with Shasta College. They ballled University of California and Sacramento State to the wire in road games last week and wound up the jaunt by trouncing University of San Francisco.
