Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Thursday, March 17, 1988 Page 13 Sports Scratch Bowling Tourney Marlatt, Louthain win 2nd divisional titles Jim Marlatt Jr. won his second upper division championship in the Logansport Community Masters Scratch Bowling Tournament last weekend. He was the top seeded bowler after a qualification round and defeated Bill Powell in the final roll-off, 208-206. Marlatt was also the upper division winner in 1986. Dan Hildebrand came from fifth position in the roll-offs to win the middle division in the tournament. In the lower division, Bob Louthain matched his 1986 championship by winning again. The roll-offs were held at Myers Lanes. A total of 55 men competed in the tournament, which was then narrowed to five finalists and an alternate in each division for the roll-offs. The alternates were Jeff Goltry, upper division; William Henderson, middle; and George Troutrnan, lower. Results of the matchplay in each division were: Jim Marlatt Jr. UPPERDIVISIOiSI Ron Smith defeated Jerry Spencer, 236-206 Ron Myers defeated Ron Smith, 185-175 Bill Powell defeated Ron Myers, 216-214 Jim Marlatt Jr. defeated Bill Powell, 208-206 Dan Hildebrand MIDDLE DIVISION Dan Hildebrand defeated Randy Zimmerman, 247-217 Dan Hildebrand defeated Dale Weaver, 230-161 Dan Hildebrand defeated Norm Newell, 171-155 Dan Hildebrand defeated Cecil Richie, 180-161 Instant Replay NFL owners retain high-tech safeguard PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) — Last year, instant replay was saved from a premature demise by NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle. This year it was Dan Rooney, president of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who did it. Next year, perhaps, the NFL owners will finally make permanent the high-tech oversight of game officials. Instant replay was renewed for another year by a vote of 23-5 on Wednesday, two votes more than necessary and two more than it received last year, when only some last-ditch lobbying by Rozelle preserved it. This time, however, the replay officials will be regular members of the officiating crew rather than members of the league office staff. At least nine teams went into Wednesday's session opposed to renewal and Tex Schramm, president of the Dallas Cowboys and replay's most fervent advocate conceded, "If we had taken a vote right at the start, it would have lost." It still might not have made it except for Rooney, one of the league's most respected figures and previously one of replay's most adamant foes. To the surprise of Schramm and other advocates, Rooney told the other owners that he would vote for it if a way could be found to keep field officials from being intimidated from the replay booth. Then came the compromise to add what in effect is an eighth official and let the members of Supervisor of Officials Art McNally's staff, who have been serving as replay officials, train and grade field officials full time. Rooney was aided by three coaches — Don Shula of Miami, Bill Walsh of San Francisco and Marty Sehottenheimer of Cleveland. "Coaches and players don't want to have plays called the wrong way," Shula said. "There were 57 mistakes corrected last year. That may not seem like a lot, but when it involves your team any correction is important." When the vote was taken, the only "nay" votes came from four teams that have opposed the concept from the start — the Kansas City Chiefs, New York Giants, Phoenix Cardinals and Cincinnati Bengals — plus the Buffalo Bills, who twitched at the last minute last year to provide replay with its saving vote. "Danny was the first one reported to be on one side that showed that it might gain approval," Schramm said. "I think that was probably the key moment." The renewal of instant replay was the key development as the meetings began winding down toward Thursday's finish. In other action Wednesday: — The owners declined to increase the $50,000 fine levied against the San Francisco 49er r for providing $10,000 playoff bonuses for each player. That was the league's maximum fine when it was levied last month by Rozelle. The figure has since been raised to $500,000. — The league voted to hold only two supplemental drafts — one in July and one in September — for players who become eligibile for pro football following the regular draft, usually held in late April or early May. In the past, an unlimited number of such drafts could be held and there have been as many as a half- dozen in some years. No action was taken on changing the eligibility standards that would allow undergraduates to enter the draft. The NFL is the only major professional league not to draft underclassmen, choosing players only if they have graduated, have used four years of eligibility or attended college for five years. However, the league has been under increasing pressure from players made ineligible for contact with agents or for other college infractions. Last year, under threat of a court suit, the NFL held a supplemental draft for wide re- ciever Cris Carter of Ohio State, who had signed with an agent. This year, it has been petitioned by running back Craig "Ironhead" Heyward of Pitt, a potential first-rounder, who also has been involved with agents. Sport Magazine Denies NCAA Tapes Request KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The NCAA has been rejected in an effort to get tapes from Sport magazine made in support of a November article alleging a coverup by University of Tennessee officials who were investigating the school's football program. David Berst, the NCAA's director of enforcement, asked SPORT for the tapes. "I didn't anticipate getting them," Berst said. "But it seemed to me an appropriate request. My job is to contact Bob Louthain iSWERDIViSION" John Holle defeated Ralph Kauffman, 187-157 John Holle defeated Jeff Spencer, 159-151 John Holle defeated Tom Hulsey, 251-128 Bob Louthain defeated John Holle, 218-189 Sports Shorts Babe Ruth Field Work Session Set A work session will be held Sunday at Steinman Field beginning at 1p.m. Babe Ruth League parents, players, managers and coaches are asked to attend the work session to prepare the diamond for play this season.

Peter Griffin, the magazine's managing editor, told The Knoxville Journal the magazine considered the request. "The NCAA approached us and asked if they could have access to our tapes," he said. "We considered it to the extend that we discussed it in a meeting. We sorted through things trying to find a way to accommodate the NCAA, but we didn't feel like setting a precedent by handing over the tapes."
