MrS.) Cowhr IftM - Wtor. Mr OAio State's Champs lose'>lga?n Don't Worry about Bu es :.COLUMBUS, Ohio-(NEA) ;—There aren't many like Marty Karow, certainly not •at Ohio State. Imagine the storm Woody Hayes would raise if he kept losing first - string football players to the pro leagues before they had played out their college eligibility. Or the letters Fred Tayl&r .would have written to the. National Basketball Association if Jerry Lucas and John 'Havlicek had decided to go pro after their, sophomore seasons. '•••'••• : - ¥ * * -.Marty Karow is Ohio State's baseball coach, has been since 1951. He keeps losing-his top players to pro -•contracts when they have one or sometimes two years 'of eligibility remaining. •' Strange part of it is, Kar- "ow doesn't mind at all. In -fact, he often encourages one of his young players to sign. Recently, Karow's team won the 1966 NCAA championship, Ohio State's first, and a week later his best righthander ever, Steve Arlin, a junior, was signed out of the player draft by the Philadelphia Phillies. "I just couldn't see how I could turn it down," Arlin said. "When I showed that contract to ny parents, their eyes popped out* * * '* Arlin, who was 11-1 with Ohio State this seasons and had 129 strikeouts in 114 innings, is believed to have signed for more than $100,000. He and Philadelphia general manager John Quinn would not disclose the figure other than to say it was "around that." Among Karow's other losses to pro baseball are John Edwards (Cincinnati), after his sophomore year; Frank Howard ($100,000 to th* Dodgers), a basketball player who signed in his senior year before the college baseball season; pitchers J&e Sparma (Detroit), Galen Cisco and on Nischwitz (both in the minors). Sparma and Cisco played football for Hayes but signed baseball contracts after their fotball eligibility was up. Sieve Arlin * * * • An All-American fullback for Ohio State in 1926, and a player for the Boston Red Sox in the late 1920s, Karow says each of his bonus babies has come to him for act- vice before signing. "I tell them'" Karow said, "that if they think the money is right, they should take it . . . that they'd be taking an awful chance by waiting." Quinn said Philadelphia scouts called Arlin, 20, one of the best college pitchers they'd ever seen. "He's got a tremendous fast ball, good curve and fine control," Quinn said. "A Jim Maloney type. '"We sent him to Bakersfield (Class A California League) because we want him to get his feet wet in pro ball rather than take the chance of ruining him by bringing him up too soon." * * * Quinn wouldn't comment on the story it would make if Arlin could play for a National League pennant winner and an NCAA championship team all in the same year. "We'll see" Quinn said. And Karow whose coaching record at OSU in 16 season: is 339-180, including four Big Ten titles, told of his parting words as Arlin left for Bakersfield: "Don't worry about Ohio State."

Associated Press Sports Writer Tommy John gave a boost to the Chicago White Sox, who have been having troube getting off the ground, then left them up in the air for a week. The 23-year-old, the big winner of Manager Eddie Stanley's staff with an 8-5 record, was set today to spend a week with the Indiana Air National Guard. Thursday night, he pitched the White Sox into a-sixth-place tie with the Kansas City Athletics firing a six-hitter in a 2-1 victory over the Cleveland In* dlans that snapped a five-game losing streak. John was due to rejoin the club next Friday, and Stanky said he plans lo start him the next day. * * * The second-place Detroit Ti- V George Scott Looks for Pitch He Can't Hit By DAVE BURGIN NESV YORK - (NBA) ~ All along people told George Scott that he should be more confident and then they'd turn around and try to break him. It began when Scott was 11 years old, playing Little League ball in his hometown,: Greenville, Miss. "How many kids do you hear about being kicked out of Little League?" asks Scott.-"Well I was. "I was hitting too many home and if he's making the necessary adjustments. "Everybody says the pitchers will catch up to me and, pop! that'll bs the end i£ home runs and I'll be headed back to the minors. I guess I'll just have to wait 'em out." While waiting, Scott landed on the American League All-Star team as starting first baseman and is oneol the leading contenders Year. And his for Rookie of the name continues to runs. They told me after I'd hit appear daily right up there with at least two home runs in each of six straight games that I was too big and good," He recalls it wasn't too many days before his departure that somebody was telling him, "Son, you're 3 big strong boy, You should be able lo stand up there and knock the ball over the fence every time." George Scott has had trouble shaking the memory, of that experience, and others like it, even though he knows the lowly Boston Red Sox aren't about to send out a 22-year-old rookie for hitting too many home runs. The problem still is confidence. He wonders, for example, If thing! art bappinlng too fast the obinsons of Baltimore on the leagueJeader list in home runs and runs battad in . "The bad part is that I'm standing at the piste looking for the pitch I'm not supposed to be able to hit,". Scott said. "I should be more confident. I should be saying to myself, 'come on, baby, I can hit anything you got." 1 * * * Meanwhile, Boston fans sci'earo for George ta belt an*, cheering when he does and moaning when he doesn't. : In the Boston dugout is man' ager Billy Herman, who has told George that the home run isn't •verythlng, that ht would appreciate an occasional double or a hit behind the runner just as much. Shades of Little League! Scott wonders now if he did the right thing the day he took $10,000 to sign with the Red Sox. It was his last game in high school. 'A lot of guys driving Cadillacs showed up to watch me and I hit four home runs." Per, haps, he suggests, he eouW have doubled his bonus if he'd thought to hit. a couple of single? or maybe even strike out once to gers upended the Baltimore Orioles by nipping the league leaders 4-3 under acting Manager Frank Skaff. Coaching Skaff took charge ol :he Tigers after acting Manager Job Swift was hospitalized by a stomach infection earlier in the day. Swift had taken the reigns 'rom Charie Dressen, the regu- ar manager, May 16 when Dressen was stricken with a second heart attack. In other AL games, the New York Yankees edged Kansas City 5-4, Minnesota beat Washington 3-1 and California took Boston 3-2 in 10 innings. * * * John also played an offensive role in the White Sox 1 • victory His sacrifice in the eighth in ning moved Ken Berry to sec ond, and Berry scored the win ning run on Wayne Causey's double. Joe Azcue's sacrifice fly put the Indians ahead in the fourth, but the White Sox tied i in the seventh when Tommfe Agee doubled home Don Buford Don Wert's two-run single with the bases loaded in the fourth—his third straight hit- put Detroit ahead to stay, 3-1 Frank Robinson hit his 22m homer for Batimore, which hai its lead trimmed to seven games.

Last year Scott played AA ball at Pittsfield, Mass., in the Eastern League, He hit ,319 with 25 homers and 94 RBI and won the league's triple crown. It was a fine, well-balanced performance, but Scott didn't think it would put him on the I960 Boston roster. It didn't. What did was his performance playing winter ball in Nicaragua. "In « month and a half down there I hit 17 home runs," Scott laid, none too enthusiastically, "So now here I am. What are you gonna do?" Confidence, George, eenfi' dene*.
