Dallas Chaparrals Meet Denver Rochets Pro Cage Tilt Scheduled at McPherson By FRED MENDELL Denver Rockets, will battle at Two of the American Basket- McPherson high school gym, ball Association's closest rivals, Thursday, Oct. 7. ti» Dallas Chaparrals and the It will be the first profession- JOE HAMILTON, who played at the Arena in the 1968 National Junior College basketball tournament with Christian College of the Southwest, Dallas, will be playing with the Dallas Chaparrals when they meet the Denver Rockets at McPherson Thursday, Oct. 7. al basketball game ever played in McPherson. The game was arranged by Bob Briner, executive vice president of the Chaparrals and a man who wanted to do something for his old school, Central College of McPherson. Briner, a native of Dallas, Tex., and a member of the Free Methodist church, chose to attend Central College, which is a Free Methodist college. He played basketball for Central in 1953 and 1954, and was captain of their basketball team. After Central he moved on to Greenville, 111. College, where he graduated. He returned to Kansas and coached basketball for one year at Burns and another year at Riley. He then became athletic director at Malone College in Canton, Ohio. Spring Arbor College and Eastern Michigan University were next stops as he moved up the college administrative ranks. Likes Executive Spots Briner liked the executive end of the sports business and today is unique as a pro sports executive, the only veteran executive pro tennis, pro football and pro basketball. For several years he was executive director of World Championship Tennis, the organization backed by Lamar Hunt of Dallas, millionaire owner of the Kansas City Chiefs and many other sports enter prises. Briner later headed Tennis International. Sports Illustrated called Briner the "logical choice to be the sport's first commissioner. The London Times described Briner as a "steadying influence on the game .. . one of those rare men who acquire power yet remain liked and respected." The New York Times said Briner "was considered too honest to survive in big time tennis." Briner switched from tennis to football by choice and in 19R6 was named promotions director of the year for the outstanding job he did with the new Miami Dolphins of the American Football League. Briner welcomed the chance, when offered, to return to home town Dallas, and one of his first loves, basketball. One of his first moves after being named executive vice president of the Chaparrals was to completely revamp the front office, from coaches to group sales and he built an organization he considers as strong as any in pro basketball. Made Headlines He put the Chaps in headlines — scheduled the first ABA- NBA inter-league game ever — Dallas against Milwaukee of the NBA at Dallas, Sept. 21 — and the first pro game ever in McPherson. The "package" Briner offered to Central College was something special. All the Chaparrals will take from the game is bare expenses. Denver will get nothing, as the Chaps are "giving" Denver a game in Colorado. All other revenue from the game will go lo Central. The game, while an exhibition, should be hotly contested with teams evenly matched. The Chaps and Rockets tied with identical records for fourth playoff spot in last year's ABA Western Division race. The Chaps edged Denver 115-109 to enter league playoffs. Some of the ABA's biggest stars will be seen when red; white and blue basketball moves into McPherson. The Chap's backcourt duo of Donnie American Horses In Good Showing THE CURRAGH, Ireland (AP) — American owned horses took the first two places in the Irish National Two-year- old Stakes at the Curragh Saturday and boosted their pros poets for next year's Epsom Derby. Roberto, owned by John W, Galbrailh of the Darby Dan Farm, in Kentucky, won by five lengths over Tall Dream entered by John McShain of Barclay Stable of New Jersey. Freeman and Steve Jones is rated with the best in pro basket ball. Freeman, the Chaps' leading scorer last season, is a four time ABA All-Star. He teamed with Steve Jones as the starting guards for the West in last season's ABA All-Star Classic. Jones is one of the ABA's most accurate three-point field goal shooters. The Chaps also boast three-time ABA AH- Star forward John Beasley, who was the MVP of the 1969 All- Star game. One of their promising new men is not new to this area. Joe Hamilton, flashy guard, was in the National Juco tournament at Hutchinson in 1968, playing for Christian Col lege of the Southwest, of Dallas The Rockets will be paced by one of the top rookies in pro basketball, Dave Robish, who was a two-time All-America star at the University of Kansas. He was the second-highest scorer in Kansas history and the third highest rebounder behind Bill Bridges and Wilt Chamberlain. Julius Keye and Larry Cannon are two of Denver's other top stars. The 6-10 Keye was second in the ABA in rebounding last year. bank and trust company ~llulchinson*National bank and trust company x iu^pi0mm mm Hiiifli One Polaris Plaza has an interior "complex" Don't be confused because of our bank's three levels.

(AP) — Minnesota's defensive opportunists setup all four touchdowns, three on Craig Curry's passes, and the Gophers slammed Indiana 28-0 Saturday. The game was Just 34 seconds old when defensive rover Mike Perfetti gave the Gophers their first break with a fumble recovery on the Indiana 30. Ernie Cook plunged a yard for the first touchdown and Curry finished with touchdown passes of 61 yards to Doug Kingsriter, 13 to Kevin Hamm and 11 to Cook—all three set up by spectacular defensive plays. The closest Indiana came to scoring was in the second period when Chris Gartner's 39 yard field goal attempt was wide by inches. Perfetti unloaded a 59-yard punt on the first play of the second period. Hoosier Dan Lintner bobbled the ball as Bart Buetow hit him, and Todd Randall recovered on the Indiana 12 to set up the second score. Defensive end Tom Chandler blocked Alan Dick's punt later in the period and Scott Irwin recovered on the 13 before the third TD.
