PA TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE ' Thursdly, Oct 15,1964 a • - \ Blue Devils Invade Alexandria To Protect CIC Lead Gibson Or Sadecki To Go For Cardinals By TIM MOR1ARTY • UP! Sports Writer ST. LOUIS (UPI)—The New York Yankees send a comparative boy —.rookie righthander • Mel Stottlemyre—out to do a man's job against the St.' Louis Cardinals today in the decisive seventh game of the 1964 World Series. -, The oddsmakers obviously feel the; 22-year-old, lanky youngster from Mabton, Wash.,, (population; 940) will succeed, for they have installed the Yankees as ; narrow 6-5 favorites. The Yankees stole a page from the Cardinals' book of comebacks Wednesday when they rode back-to-.back solo homers by Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle and a grand slammer by Joe Pepitone to an 8-3 victory 'that knotted the best-of-seven series at three victories apiece. So today it was up to Stottlemyre, who will be pitching with only two days rest. Won Game Two The thin-faced youth from the Far West pitched a seven-hitter j in winning game No. 2 here at sun-baked Busch Stadium last Thursday. He also started the fifth game! at New York Monday but was not around at the finish when Tim McCarver's three-run homer in the 10th inning earned the Cardinals a 5-2 triumph and a 3-2 series edge. The winning pitcher for the j Cards that day was Bob Gib- i son, and he is' expected to be ! Manager Johnny Keane's choice • again today. I "I don't like to work a man \ with only two • days rest, but'. Bob is big and strong and 1 1 feel he can get the 'job done," said Keane. Gibson, a G-foot-2, 190-pound righthander from.Omaha, Neb., said he "felt like I just finished a 10-round fight" after his six- fa i t, 13-strikeout performance against the Yankees Monday. . Wait For Decision The former Harlem Globe! trotter basketball player still wasn't feeling exactly 100 per cent Wednesday and that's why Keane wasn't settled on a final decision on' whether to start Gibson until after watching him warm up.before today's game. "I'll have Bob warm up early and if he's not ready I'll go with (Ray) Sadecki," said Keane. However, Gibson appeared to be the strongest choice. Big Bob started and lost-the second game, striking put nine Yankees, before getting" even with the American. League champions Monday. i Blessed with a blazing fastball and a good curve, Gibson won 19 games during the regular season as the Cardinals came from 11 games back to nose out the Philadelphia Phillies and the Cincinnati Reds for the National League championship. Wants One More Now Keane is hoping for one more victory from the likeable Nebraskan that would give St. Loins its first world championship in 18 years. Stottlemyre was handed the roughest series assignment for a rookie pitcher since 1947 when Frank Shea, a surprise starter, pitched the Yankees to victory over the old Brooklyn Dodgers in the seventh game of that autumn classic. The 6-Xoot-2- 173 - pounder might be skinny but he's also tough. He joined the Yankees from their Richmond, Va., farm club in mid-August and won nine of 12 decisions in helping MUTUAL OF OMAHA WHETHER YOU RECEIVE BENEFITS " 1, 10, OR 100 TIMES Here 's low-cost Hospitalization insurance that can never be canceiled because of any change in your HEALTH . . . 9 ^ FOR FREE INFORMATION Robert D.

Even the odds-makers are baffled. They've made Oklahoma and Michigan State one- point favorites and we'll go along with them on the Spartans but prefer the Jayhawks over the Sooners in a toughie. The East Syracuse over Penn State — by even more than last year's 9-0 margin. Princeton over Colgate —The Tigers smell some raw meat. Boston College over Cincinnati — Its homecoming game for the Eagles a . Also: Harvard over Cornell, Villanova over Delaware, Columbia over Yale and Dartmouth over Brown. The Midwest Notre Dame over U.C.L.A. — The Irish will have to contain Larry Zeno though. Michigan over Purdue — The Solverines want that Big Ten lead all alone. Southern California over Ohio State — This is the one the Trojans have been waiting for since opening day. Illinois over Minnesota — by about one touchdown. Kansas over Oklahoma — If you could see only one ball game, this would be the one to pick. Also: Wisconsin over Iowa, Northwestern over Miami (O.), Nebraska over Kansas State, Iowa Stale over Colorado, Detroit over Wichita and Dayton over Abilene Christian. The South Alabama over Tennessee — The Vols are improving, but the only trouble is so is the Crimson Tide. Kentuckv over Louisiana State — The Wildcats pull off another upset. Florida State over Georgia— Pretty soon, people are going to pitch the Yankees to their fifth straight pennant. Stotllemyre's best pitch is a sinker. He also has great control for a rookie. start taking the Seminoles seriously. Mississippi over Tulane—like mid-week practice for Ole Miss. Pitt over Miami (Fla.)—The Panthers passing games makes the big difference. Also: Auburn over Georgia Tech, Duke over North Carolina State. Florida over South Carolina, Maryland over North Carolina, Clemson over Wake Forest and Army over Virginia. Arkansas over_Texas — Razorbacks win their fifth straight in the upset of the week. Texas A. & M. over Texas Christian — Ttjese two schools always put on a fine show. Southern Methodist over Rice — Not much to choose here. Texas Tech over Baylor — The Bears haven't been especially impressive so far. Also: Utah State .over New Mexico, Memphis State over West Texas State and North Texas State over New Mexico State. The Far West Washington over Stanford — The Huskies snap their three- game losing streak. Air Force over Missouri — This one could be decided by point after touchdown. Navy over California — Middies get well again after their licking by' Georgia Tech. Oregon over Arizona — Wildcats are out-matched. Also: Wyoming over Texas Western, San Jose State ever Washington State; Utah over Colorado State and Oregon State over Idaho. HUNT IS CAUGHT ST. LOUIS (UPI)—Robert M. Hunt, 27, may be first in +he ranks of St. Louis Cardinal fans but he is last in the heart of kis former wife. Hunt, who stood first in line to buy bleacher tickets for the sixth game of the World Series, was hauled off to jail Monday on non-support charges filed by his ex-wife. She recognized his photograph in a newspaper. INSTANT SPACE HOUSE SAN DIEGO, CalU.

PETERSEN UPI Sports Editor TOKYO (UPI) — Massive A! Oerter of West Babylon?. N.Y., won his third straight Olympic gold medal in the discus throw today and the United States regained world supremacy in the 100 meter dash and eight-oared rowing. Big Bob Hayes of Florida A&M, wearing borrowed shoes, tied the world record of 10 seconds, flat as .he blazed to his long expected 100 meter triumph bMt the rowing success was a shocker. Philadelphia's Vesper Boat Club eight, a hybrid crew put together less than a month before last summer's team tryouts, swept through almost total darkness with an ever-increasing, lead to knock off Germany's defending champions. Czechoslovakia finished third. An American pair-with-coxswain, with Ed Ferry of Seattle and Conn "Findlay of. Belmont, Calif., manning the oars, also won a gold medal. U.S. double scullers won a silver medal and four- without - coxswain finished third for a bronze medal. Wins Rifle Competition Gary Lee Anderson, a divinity student from Hastings, Neb., gave the U.S. a gold medal in the 300 meter free rifle competition with a world record score of 1,153 points and Lesley Bush of Princeton, N.J., provided the sixth gold medal of the day with an upset in the high dive. Miss Bush defeated. Germany's Ingrid Kramer, who won both the .platform and springboard events in 1960 and the 1964 springboard earlier in these games. Oerter, a teen-ager at the University of Kansas when he won his first Olympic crown at Melbourne in 1956, fired the discus to an -Olympic record of 200 feet, 1.63 inches. Now 28, the 265-pound employe of an aircraft plant made his record toss on the fifth of six throws. Oerter outclassed a feared competitor, Ludvik Danek of Czechoslovakia, who finished second with 198-6. Dave Weill of Walnut Creek, Calif., gave the U.S. a bronze medal at 195 feet even. Hayes, a 190 pounder with brilliant starting speed to go with his raw power, won by three'yards over'Cuba's enrique Figuerola with Canada's Harry Jerome, third by inches. Mother Watching Looking on were big Bob's mother, 1936 Olympic ace Jesse Owens and Germany's Armin Hary, whose victory at Rome shattered a string of five straight victories by American dash men. Hayes, who forgot his shoes and had to borrow a pair from teammate Tom Farrell, flashed to a 9.9 second qualifying heat but the time was disallowed because of an excess following wind.

The Tigers will field the heaviest team Tipton has met this year, particularly at tackle positions where 215-pound Dick Burkhart will be opposing veteran letter winner Steve Kildow, the most compact young man imaginable at 5'5" tall and 225 pounds wide. The other tackle assignment will have 205 pound senior Ken Mahaney trying to block out of action Otis Cress, a iiewcomer to the Alexandria varsity who is a senior standing six feet tall and scaling 240 pounds. a ' In the backfield T-pton will fare better on the weights with an overall advantage of 15 pounds per man, although the Tigers do field one- of the bet ter fullbacks in "the conference in Jim Hahn, a 6'1" senior veteran who carries 205 pounds pn his frame.- Good- Fullback Hahn, who was injured earlier in the season, got into action only on defense against Peru last week, which was one of the excuses for the one-sidedness of that game but he is expected to be fully recovered for this outing, and since he was also the fullback last year when Tipton administered that drubbing, he in particular will be after blood. Coach Wehsollek has one youngster in' the lineup who the Blue Devils are going to have to keep a strong eye in and that is quarterback Steve Telfer, only a sophomore but one for whom his coach is predicting greatness. Standing six feet tall and scaling 175, Telfer is unusually poised under fire and in addition to having scored three touchdowns to tie Hahn for the Alex leadership in that department, he has passed for several touchdowns and •likes to throw the long bomb. In view of early season weakness ,in this department. Tipton defensive backs are going to have to stick close to Larry Stafford and Edmund Duncan, the Tiger ends. Duncan "has been converted to that position from guard where he played all last season. The Tigers have a veteran backfield with the exception of Telfer. Both left halfback Steve Eden and right half Dennis Ice won their letters at those positions last year, and although- light, are possessed of a good turn- of speed. Scouted by Big 10 Coach Wehsollek says quite frankly that this is a much better team than Alexandria-fielded last year, although because of improved competition throughout the conference, it may finish the season with not much bet-, ter a record than last year. The Blue Devils, in addition to defending their slim lead in the CIC standings, have the added incentive of showing coach Wehsollek that he w4s not mistaken in giving them their present rating in the state gridiron poll. They will also, at least the seniors, foe trying to impress one big ten football coach who is making a special trip to Alex Friday night to watch them for possible scholarship offers. Game time at Alex, as in all CIC contests, is 7:45 p.m. ON THE SIDELINES BY HAM R1GG Phone , calls DO-SI yesterday and this morning from Gordie Serr, head linecoach and chjef scout for Michigan State, indicate he will be at Alexandria Friday night to watch the Blue Devils in action against coach Jim Wehsollek's Tigers. M-S plays Indiana U. Saturday at Bloomington and the team flies into Weir Cook airport, Indianapolis tomorrow afternoon. We offered to pick him up at the airport but his call this morning indicated there might be a change in the time of the team's departure from East Lansing so he might drive straight down from there instead of flying with the team, and then rejoin them that night in Bloomington.. Coach John Moses and several of the players will be guests of Mirf'nig'fin State the following Saturday when the Spartans host Northwestern in another Big Ten game, but Serr wants to see the boys in action, as well as meeting them in person. Last year he, and our friend Danny Litwhiler," head baseball coach at the university, were both interested in Tipton passer, Steve VanHorn, but Serr's schedule never gave him an opportunity to watch the redhead. Litwhiler is also interested in Danny Crouch as a catching prospect and has encouraged Serr to make the trip. Everyone is familiar with stories about scouts turning out enmasse to watch one prospect and being impressed instead with someone else on the team, so Friday's game with Alex will be a real opportunity for everyone of these seniors to earn themselves scholarship consid; era.tion. at a Big Ten school. Aite coaches never miss a prospect, so, any of the underclassmen who contribute an outstanding job in this game may find themselves under the .watchful eye of scouts next year. We've been shooting out material on several of the boys for several years, since they first started showing their potential, and regardless of what school they may eventually choose as offering them the best educational as well as athletic, opportunities, we're confident that there is more than one boy.op this year's team destined for a role in major college athletics. We talked with one youngster at the start of this week who already has caught the eye of Penn State, Michigan State and Notre Dame with letters from several other big colleges on the way. We were glad to hear he is keeping an "open mind" on the feelers and is going to make no hurried decision. We're sure the others will also weigh all offers with an eye on their overall future. To some, we may appear to be overemphasizing the role of athletics in the educational system. But if just one boy is enabled through athletics to get j a college education who would ! be unable to afford it otherwise, • then athletics has proved its value. This is the opinion of the Tipton coaching staff, and it is becoming increasingly appreciated in the community that Tipton High School could not have placed its athletic department in more capable hands than those who are now at its helm.

(UPI) —Pat Frank, 57, ex-newspaperman, war correspondent and author of "Mr. Adam" and "Alas Bablyon," died Monday By ED SAINSBURY " UPI SForts Writer ST. LOUIS (UPI) — Manager Yogi Berra eliminated his own alibi if his New York Yankees should happen to lose the World Scries against the St. Louis Cardinals today. "Both (J i m) Bouton and Mel) Stottlemyre have done a terrific job for us," he said. "We don't have the edge, but I think we're in just as good shape as the Cardinals." Bouton racked up his second World Series win . Wednesday, and 'Berra promptly proclaimed, "It'll be Stottlemyre tomorrow." "If Stottlemyre doesn't have it," he added, "I'll have everybody ready in the bullpen." 'Everybody, "tnough, won't include his pitching coach and star lefthander, Whitey Ford, suffering from an injured heeel which impedes his. motion. Ford warmed up briefly Wednesday and couldn't throw effectively. "That means he won't be available at all," Berra said, "unless he suddenly gets awfully 'better overnight. If he could have pitched yesterday, I would have used him, and if he was all right, he'd start today." Bouton had trouble of his own and said "I wasn't as sharp as I wanted to. be. I didn't feel right until the fourth inning." "I did, a better job in the other game," he said, speaking of Saturday's 2-1 win, "but I had better stuff in this one. Especially with my motion, I had to get used to this mound." Bouton got a lift, though, when Joe Pepitone hit a grand slam. homer, the third of his career, to cap a five-run Yankee eighth inning. . "What a beauty that grand slam was," Bouton said. "There's a difference pitching when the score is 8-1 and when it's a 1-1 tie." By LEONARD ADAMS United Press International ST.
