J PEOPLE'S COLUMN 4 EDITED BY CHARLES JOHNSON THE RECENT' state high school basketball tournament , and Vic Power's status with the Minnesota Twins furnish a good share of the mail to "The People's Column." Let's get into basketball first with this letter from Jerry Hennen, sports director of radio station KLOH of Pipestone, Minn.: , t "Just' a note to congratulate your sports staff for doing a tremendous job of covering the 1964 state tournament. You deserve much praise. -. "I also would like to congratulate Ray Merry, coach of the state champions of Luverne, for a job well done. I've seen the Cardinals play quite a few games in the southwestern corner of the state this season and they were not half as good as they are now. "Ray has done a great job with his boys. Ray is an outstanding coach. This year, he developed his sophomore Beyer and juniors Jessen and Kozney to work along with his seniors Thone and Toms. He used the 2-2-1 offense with Thone hitting from way out and the boys underneath. He had ,an offense that was impossible to defense. "The one thing that really impressed me about Merry was after the Hutchinson ' game, which Luverne won by 66-50. Ray was very disturbed with the play of the Cards. Yet, they beat a rer. good Hutchinson ball club by 15 points. I think coach Merry overdid it, but his complaining and talking to the Cardinals are what keyed them up for their great win over Proctor and Rochester. "Bob Lorentzen ' and Harry Frahms.'the assistants, and many others certainly helped in contributing to the state champs but mainly it was the work of coach Merry. "We here in southwestern Minnesota are proud of Luverne and want it to be known. This is basketball country and it is mainly because we have fellows like Ray Merry, Ed Otton (Pipestone), Glenn Matke (Marshall), Ken Sagedahl (Slayton) and Arlirr Patrick (Edgerton)." Can't Locate Luverne k BILL LIEBE of Luverne, Minn., has this gripe: ' "So the crowds seemed anti-big city. Well, how anti-small city can a big city get when the sportcasters can't even give a small town like Luverne the courtesy to locate us on a map. "One in particular thought we were about 30 miles west of Worthington. Close to Sioux City, Iowa.'- Guards Stood Out JAMES R. FRANTA of Sauk Rapids, Minn., points out the number of fine guards in the state meet: "During the past 10 years I can't remember a state basketball tournament with such outstanding athletes. In addition, the display of sportsmanship deeply touched the hearts of the spectators. If any one position was radiant it was the guard Baseball Teams End Trip at 3-7 Special to the Minneapolis Star SAN ANTONIO, Tex. The University, of Minnesota's two baseball teams will return home Sunday after poll ing a combined record of three victories and seven losses in Texas. The varsity, which lost all of its five games, was to play an intra-squad game today with the "B" team, which had a 3-2 record, in Lackland, Tex., before starting the train trip home. The two squads are scheduled to ar rive at St. Paul Union Depot, at 6:45 p.m. tomorrow. Friday the Gophers split their last two games. The varsity lost 6-3 to Trinity University in San Antonio, and the "B" team defeated Randolph Air Force Base 8-6. The Gopher varsity took a 2-1 lead in the third inning with the help of two Tnnity errors but managed just five ingles tor the game. Start ing pitcher Dan Howard was the loser. He and Denny Johnson gave up 12 hits. In the "B" game, Ron Roal- stad and George Nelson slammed home runs, Roal-stad breaking a 2-2 tie in the fifth inning. . position. 1 "I have only one complaint. I feel that when an all state team is picked the number should be increased from 12 to 16. Thus several players were left off due to the limited choice." MINNESOTA (31 b h rhl Clark, If Markus, 2b Hoffman, cf Cawlev, 3b Davis. 1 b Woiciak, c Werness, rf Hergott, ss Howard, d Johnson, d A Power Booster FRANK CURRAN of Minneapolis is disappointed that there is talk of the Twins trading Vic Power: . , "In the news of late I note that Vic Power has been nominated to be traded away by the ! Twins. This can only mean that Cal Griffith, the combination ftont office mogul and 'field manager,' is getting lonesome for the second division in the American League. ' "Vic Power . should have known better than to field his position so skillfully and scoop :in countless wild throws for putouts at first base. This' sort of behavior is bound to force a team into the first division and .maybe even institute the igno- Why Bench Him? minious spectacle of a pennant. But Cal is not to be foiled. The Dodgers showed him last fall that tight pitching and fielding will beat the Yankees, so in order to prevent this, he wants to get rid of Power to loosen up that infield. Presto, back to the serene confines of the second division he knows so well. "Of all the Twins there are none that I appreciated as much as Vic Power. He is a truly professional baseball player and I, shall be saddened if he passes from the local scene." -Val'nciano 1 0 0 Blank, p Totals 32 5 0 Totals 37 12 a Struck out for Johnson In ninth.

HK Roalstad, Nelson, Piter, it JOEL ANDERSON of Minneapolis gets into the Power , discussion: ; "What kind of a defense could our young and wild throwing infield make with an ordinary first baseman? When you have the best fielding first baseman in the majors why bench him? He was one of the Twins' best hitters and the leagues 17th best. .Allison was only the sixth best Twin and the 47th best in the league. "I know that Allison hit more home runs and batted in 39 more runs than Power but what would it have been had Allison batted second and Power batted fifth in the line up? Power and his many spectacular fielding games is what really made the Twins jell in 1962-1963. Also he is the most colorful player we have and most fans love to watch him perform. Don't get me wrong I like Allison as a player and hope Oliva can continue his good hitting but I hope the 'brains' of the Twins will stop and consider these statements." More Power Boosters NO LESS than 29 persons signed this letter on Vic Power: "; "Although we fully realize ithat Calvin Griffith is well ver-' sed in baseball management, we ' also know that he must . eventually bow to the fans wishes. We, therefore, plead that Twin fans join us in petitioning to keep Dr. Strangeglove off first 'base. ., "Vic Power fans everywhere should stand up and be counted before a disastrous decision is made and he is benched or even worse, traded. Let the outfielders battle among themselves for the three positions available. '"To Tell The Truth,' we think the real first baseman should stand up where he belongs." Lauds Clay's Approach ARNOLD E. PAULSON of Granite Falls, Minn., thinks Cassius Clay has a smart promotional gimmicK going ior himself: "Cassius Clay has got a real 'deal going for him and once I again at the suckers (the public) expense. His act before the Lis-ton fight is the only thing that made the attraction. He lipped - off so much everyone w'ent to see him get his head knocked -i off. "Now, his Black Muslim, "'Muhammed Ali' promotion has ' really fallen into his hands. His i next fight will attract more spectators than an over ripe banana attracts flies. -The whole 1 country will want to see him ;get slaughtered. Clay with his promotion tactics stands to make more money than any other boxer in history. Don't think its an act? It's one of the smartest promotion gimmicks ,the fight game has seen. "I wouldn't be too sure he is so dumb he can't pass the Army IQ either. His promotors will make a killing with him out of the service, not in. "Furthermore, he's a terrific fighter, smart, fast and knows the score. He could be around for a long long time. "Liston had a reach on Patterson long enough to knock him out from his own corner. Clay also has this same reach advantage. Clay will take Patterson like Grant took Richmond."'

(UPI) President Johnson provided Friday for con tinued unemployment com pensation payments to former federal workers and ex- servicemen. He signed into law a bill appropriating an extra $42 million for them in the cur rent fiscal year, which ends June 30. The former federal work ers and ex-servicemen are not eligible for unemploy ment benefits paid others by state agencies. They were covered by an intial appropriation of $110 million, but because ot jump in claims last Decem ber and January, Mr. Johnson asked last Jan. 21 for a supplemental appropriation of $30 million, and on March 23 for another $12 million. Congress combined the two requests. AFTER SCARE Sales of Cigarettes Bounce Back Again By GARY GILSON Minneapolis Star Staff Writer There is a fellow in Chi cago who says business is so good that he is getting an ul cer. He repairs pipes the kind that people smoke. It seems there are so many reformed cigarette smokers exhuming old broken pipes from attic trunks and bottom drawers that he can't keep up with them. But his problem is not a true index of the trend in smoking, according to Billy Eisenberg, of Billy & Marty's tobacco shop, 829 Marquette Av., who told the story.
