Chapter One. Notie Dame: Tidings snorts editor Chuck Johnson may be excommunicated for his herrsy, but he had the courage to inform his large Catholic audience in Southern California what was wrong uiih Notre Dame football. His answer: 'The Irish hid down and died." Mr. Johnson explains: "Notre Dame isn't happy with Joe Kuharich, but don't look for a quick separation. Mr. K feels keenly the old school hasn't given him adequate help. He believes ND doesn't provide enough scholarships and academic understanding to make possible a consistent winner in today's competitive collcginte market." Joe, plainly, thinks he's still in professional font- ball . . . but, then, doesn't every Notre Dame coach? Johnson, who has pipelines smack in the middle of the South Bend university, says Kuharich won't quit because he's a spirited fighter. "Kuharich is criticised for f a i l u r e to win 111? confidence and 'inspire' his football warriors. Insiders «ay he yearns for a speedy return to pro football, yet today is hardly the prudent time for contract negotiations and re- 'entry. He'd return as a comparative beggar, and couldn't ;hopc for better than catching on as M l . aide someplace in .the second division." · ', Kuharich is no mental midget, nor Is Notre Dame. ;The Irish cannot afford to fire--«ir pay nlf--annlhrr coach . . . or have you forgotten (be Terry Brrnnan scent, which left something less than n hoiniuct of roses in South Bend? . "Thousands of subway alumni and even some dues- paying grads still arc aloof because of the supposedly heathen 'hospitality' displayed towards Hrennan," insists Johnson. "Terry's firing was Hie shot heard round the sports world." Indeed it was . . . anil you may he certain Notre I):mc and Joe Kuharich will cling to one another like reunited lovers. ".. Notre Dame isn't about to risk another public relations reversal . . . and Kuharich doesn't cherish the idea of begging around the NFl.'s soup line. The m.irri.ige was not born in heaven, but it beats the pioblems s u r r o u n d i n g a divorce. ~k ~k it CHAPTER TWO, HAHNT.SS RACING: Pics Jcnuinc and Biff Lowry. the men who brought major league sulky riding to the Southland, have quite a fantastic animal running for them today in the Spring Maturity Pace at Santa Anita. . _ The creature's name If Shndydalc Monitor, who haj ·nothing shady about his record. Old Shady's notched 18 straight wins and will be Rolng for No. 19 today. Try that record on for sl/c! Old Shady figures to have problems with only one opponent, a fella named Lumber Dream \vho was only the best pacer at S'Anita last season. Old Lumber was dreaming before one race last season and broke stride before the start. Before he pot untangled, Lumber w* 14 lengths behind the other boys. When he got organized, Lumber knocked off the pack like Wilt Chamberlain sheds enemy rcbounders. He won the chase going away. But I've got to like Old Shady today. Anything with IS straight wins is better than the Yankees * * * CHAPTER THREE. A BASEBALL GAME: Long Beach's Illair Field was scheduled during the winter as the site of a final exhibition contest between the Dodgers and Milwaukee Braves. The game was set up by the Dodgers' Buzzie B.ivasi. with all Dodger proceeds being turned over to kid baseball teams in Long Beach. Both clubs had an original commitment In San Dlegn, but decided nothing was xxronj in splitting their squads and Riving everyone a final chance to play--and prove perhaps his ultimate destination. Then the ugly head of trouble was reared. The Braves spliced a w o r k i n g agreement w i t h Vancouver of the PCL and thus \vcre forced to come to C;,lifornia from Florida w-ith only the basic squad which will represent Milwaukee in the N.L. race. The Braves had a problem: How to cut up a squad of two dozen or so athletes (at least 10 of which were pitchers) into two teams. They also had chartered a few dozen seats on a nonstop Jet flight from San Diego to San Francisco, \\hcro they're scheduled to open the season less than 48 hours later. The problems looked insmmountahle. hut Bavasi and Braves' president John Mclhlc didn't want to let this city down. To make a Inng story brief. B.iv.isi and Mcllale got their heads together, agreed a group of Braves would bus from San Diego w i t h the Dodger contingent and the game was still on. Some Braves may h* out of position here April R. but they'll be here, thanks to a pair of men who w e n t out of iheir way to live up to nn agreement. Not manv others would. Vikings Drub Huskies, 11-4 By KC\ SCmVOUtXK Using a barrage of linc,inusclcs to take the victory drives.
