Friday, October.15,1964 TIPTON DAILY falBUNE Page 5 ? Is World Champs After Seventh Game Win Cawley Wins Olympie Race By LEO H. PETERSEN Iff I Sports Editor TOKYO (UPI)—Slender Wyo, mia Tyus, one of Tennessee State's famed Tiger-Belle girl sprinters, and 400 meter hurdler Rex Cawley of Los Angeles boosted the United States haul of gold medals to 17 at the . Olympic Games today. Other Americans pushed the over-all medal total to 39 with a silver medal in track and a silver and bronze in rifle shooting but were shut out in the 800 meters won for the second straight time by Peter Snell of New Zealand. The 19-year-old Miss Tyus blazed down the 100 -meter straightaway at National Stadium in 11.4 seconds for a whopping four-yard victory over favored Tennessee stater* Edith McGuire, who went into the starting blocks with high hopes of matching Wilma Rudolph's ' 100-200 double at Rome in 1960. . Miss Tyus, of Griffin, Ga., burst to the front shortly after the start and gradually lengthened her lead over Atlanta's < Miss McGuire, who was clocked in 11.6 along with third place Ewa Klobukowska of Poland and fourth place Marilyn White of Los Angeles. Sixth Straight Win Cawley's 400 meter hurdle triumph was the sixth straight by a Yank but John Cooper of . Great Britain and Salvatore Moreale of Italy both finished ahead of'Jay Lucke of Watertown, Mass., in an event that produced 1-2-3 American sweeps in the last two Olympiads. Luck stumbled over the next to last hurdle, j Cawley was timed in 49.6, three - tenths off the Olympic record, i Snell had a romp in the 800, winning by five yards over Canada's Bill Crothers with Wilson Kiprugut of Kenya third and the best Americans up the track. The heavily -favored New Zealander stayed with the pack for the first 400, then almost casually charged past Kiprugut and held off a final bid by the plucky Crothers. Snell was clocked in 1:45.1, breaking his own Olympic record of 1:46.3 but well off his world mark of 1:44:3. Tom Farrell of Forest Hills, N.Y., the 20-|ear-old NCAA champ from St. John's was fifth in 1:46.7 and 26-year-old Jerry Siebert of Willets, Calif., was sixth in 1:47. Women's Javelin Winner Mihaela Penes of Romania won the women's javelin with a final round throw of 198 feet, IVi inches. Antal Rudas of Hun ; gary was second and Russia's Elena Gorchakova, who had a preliminary round world record toss of 204-8Vb, wound up third. Jozef Schmidt of Poland won the triple jump for the second straight time with a leap of 55 feet, 3'"2 inches to beat a pair of Russians who settled the silver and bronze medals. Ira Davis of Philadelphia, fourth in 1960, wound up ninth with a 52-V/i and Bill Sharpe, also of Philadelphia, was 11th at 51-10 : !S. Two sharpshooting Americans made a terrifc run at the gold medal in the * small bore rifle prone event but were nudged out 'by Hungary's Laszlo Hairt- merl. Lones Wigger, Jr., of Carter, Mont., actually tied Hammerl's world record score of 597 of a possible 600 in the 50-meter shoot and the judges had a hectic time deciding between them. Tough Decision It finally was determined the Hungarian was the winner because, on his final 10 shots of the nerve-testing event, he had a score of 100 to 99 for Wigger. Tommy Pool of Groom, Tex., was third with a 596 score. In 5,000 meter trials, Bob Schul of Dayton, Ohio, and Bill Dellinger of Springfield, Ore., qualified easily for the final, though both ran second in their heats. Schul, .one of the top favorites, trailed Tunisia's Mohamed Gamoudi, who earlier this week finished-second in the 10,000. Dellihger ran second to Britain's Michael Wiggs. Michel Jazy of France, Bill Baillie of .New Zealand and Ron Clarke of Australia were among the prominent qualifiers 'but 1960 winner Murray Halbert of New Zealand missed" out Other casualties were Oscar Moore of New York and Bruce Kidd of Toronto. : Swimming'Qualifiers In swimming, Carl 'Robie of Drexel Hill, Pa., Phil Riker of Patterson, N.J.,..-..and- iFxed. Schmidt .of Northbrook, 111., qualified for Saturday 's semifinal in the 200 meter butterfly. Robie set a new Olympic record of 2:10, breaking the 2:12.8 mark set by Mike Troy of the U.S. in 1960, Australia 's Robert Windle 'set a new Olympic mark of 17;.13.6 in a 1,500 ' meter ' qualifying beat. That topped the old marl' Johnny Keane Leads Club rough Miracle' Finish By TIM MORIARTY UPI Sports Writer ST. LOUIS (UPI) — Johnny Keane, a spunky little Irishman who once studied for the priesthood, was receiving most of the credit today for authoring one of baseball's greatest miracles. Less than two months. ago, v his bosses were ready to fire Keane and replace him with Leo Durocher. Today, jaunty Johnny stood atop the baseball world as manager of the world champion St. Louis Cardinals. If it wasn't a miracle, this comeback of the new . Gas House Gang, then it will have to qualify as one of baseball's greatest stories ever told., Remarkable Comeback When the Cardinals downed the New York Yankees 7-5, in the seventh and deciding game of the World Series Thursday at sun-baked Busch Stadium, they .climaxed a comeback that came close to rivalling that of the miracle Boston Braves in 1914. The 1914 Braves charged from last place on . July 4 to ran the National League pennant and then whipped the mighty Philadelphia Athletics of Connie Mack in four straight World Series games. The. Cardinals' comeback this year was almost as thrilling. They were in fourth place on Aug. 24, 11 games back of the pace-setting Philadelphia Phillies, and reports circulated that Keane would be canned —• perhaps before the end of the season. " | But then the Redbirds started rolling. They won 28 oi their last 39 games to nose out the Phillies and the Cincinnati Reds for their first NL of 17:19.6 by Aussie John Konrads but well off-the world record of 16:58.7 by Roy Saari of El Segundo, Calif., an Olympic favorite. A Russian women's team set an Olympic record of 4:39.1 for the 400 meter medley swim relay as eight teams qualified for the finals. The U. S. team easily made it but Australia, despite a fine anchor -leg by 'jDawn Fraser, was-a casualty. flag since 1946. Cards Were Underdogs Then came the World Series. As usual, the Cardinals were underdogs. After the Yankees won the third game at New York last Saturday to take a 2-1 lead in victories, Keane's young scrappers were just about counted out by the odds- makers,- who made the Yankees 4-1 favorites. But the Cards bounced back to take the next two games at New York and it was then that the "Wizards of Odds" finally conceded they had a chance. After all, they only had to win one of the next two games on their' home field to gain the world title, so they were installed as the series^ favorites for the first time at 19-10 odds, j That was more like it. When the Yankees won the sixth game Wednesday to knot the series again at 3-all, they were made slight 6-5 favorites for Thursday's decider. The oddsmakers were wrong again. Sewed Up Championship With big Bob Gibson, working with only two days rest, blazing his fastball past the Yankees and Ken Boyer and Lou Brock contributing home runs, the Cardinals sewed up. their seventh world championship in 10 tries before 30,346 delirious 'fans at the old Busch Stadium bandbox. The Yankees, who had hoped to present freshman Manager Yogi Berra with the world championship, instead wound up losing the annual classic for the second straight year. Coming on the heels of their sweep by the Los Angeles Dodgers last year, it marked the first time the Yankees lost two ' straight series since 1922. Another statistic worth mentioning: It was the fifth time the Cardinals were involved in seven-game series and they have won 'em all—the last previous being over the Boston Red Sox on the same field 18 years ago. j The Cardinals were engulfed by thousands of screaming, mauling fans when the Yankees' Bobby Richardson popped out for the final !out. Broke Open Game Lou Brock and Ken Boyer hit homers in the 10-hit Cardinal attack but the game was really broken open when the Redbirds staged the first of their two three-run rallies in the fourth inning. Until then Gibson and rookie Mel Stottlemyre had matched shutout pitching and the big question seemed to be whether Gibson, working with two days of rest, could last. Ken Boyer started the fourth with a single and Dick Groat walked. Tim McCarver hit a double play grounder to Bobby Richardson but Phil Linz' relay was wild and Boyer scored with the game's first run. Mike Shannon singled to right sending McCarver to third and then he and McCarver worked a double steal with the Cardinal catcher scoring. Dal Maxvill's single drove in the third-run.- Brock homered to open the fifth to make it 4-0 and the Cardinals added two more runs on Bill White's single, Boyer's double, an'infield out by Groat and McCarver's sacrifice fly. Boyer's second homer of the series added the seventh St. Louis run in the seventh. Close Gap Gibson shut out the Yankees on three hits for five innings but they rapped Bob for three runs in the sixth on singles" by Richardson a'nd Roger- 'Maris and Mickey Mantle's three-run homer. The homer was Mantle's 18th in World Series com-, petition—a record. Clete Boyer homered with one out in the ninth and Linz homered with two out before Richardson finally popped out to Maxvill to end the game. Gibson's nine strikeouts raised his series total to 31—a record for -a series of any length — and Richardson set a new^series mark by collecting 13 hits. DOG REPELLENT PHILADELPHIA (UPI) — Postmaster Anthony Lambert today armed his mailmen with a repellent for use on dogs bent on biting the letter carriers. Lambert said the repellent, when squirted in a dog's eyes, will temporarily - blind the animal, but not injure it* Keane To Get Reward Today By LEONARD ADAMS United Press International ST. LOUIS (UPI) — Johnny Keane believes in the old adage about a picture and a thousand words. Keane went out to the mound in the sixth inning of Thursday's final World Series game after Mickey Mantle hit a three run homer off Bob Gibson. "I still thought Gibson was throwing good," Keane said. "I just wanted to look at his face. He gave me a determined look so I knew he was equal to it. He's, got a great heart and a great throwing arm." Gibson made a believer out of Keane that moment and before he was through he had his second World Series victory, a new series record of 31 strikeouts and a sports car from a magazine as the most valuable player. Thought Of Winning Gibson said, "I never even thought about the strikeout record. Winning was more important. It was more important than the record or anything else." "Gibson's a real pro. He 's got great heart," Keane stated. 'I would have gone to (Ray) Sadecki in the ninth to pitch to (Roger) Maris, but, otherwise, I never seriously considered taking Gibson out." All the Cardinals, from President Aubust A. Busch Jr. down, believed winning the pennant was the best thing that could have happened, but after Thursday they had to admit they were wrong. Busch said, "This is a great thrill. I thought winning the pennant was wonderful but this tops even that." Busch planned to sit down with Keane today to show just how much the world championship means — in cash. He has already offered Keane a contract but the manager wanted to wait until after the season and the series. Now, they'll talk. Tops Pennant Thrill Team captain, Ken Boyer, who contributed two home runs during the series, said, "winning the pennant was a great thrill, one that I thought wouldn't be matched {but this tops even that." j. -. Gibson said he couldn't; im- (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer TOKYO (UPI)—A mechanical monster known as IBM has become the Frankenstein of the Olympic Games. IBM fairly popped its electronic buttons with the proud pre-Olympic boast that it ".had installed "the most advanced information network ever as-, sembled" for the Tokyo Games. It further boasted .that the times of the competing athletes. Their points and overall scores would be flashed on specially built scoreboards for the benefit of spectators "within minutes'.' after each event. "Not hours or days later as in the past.". Minutes? You wouldn't want to hold your breath - that long. For example, it took Bri- tains gold medalist Ken Matthews one hour,, 29 minutes and 34 seconds to walk 20,000 me- agine anything better than Monday's 5-2 victory, his first World Series triumph, "but this one's got me more excited than even that one." ' • Keane accepted congratulations from Busch, General Manager Bob- Howsam, former team executives, Art Routzong and Bing DeVine, and others. He did so calmly. He said his players "deserve the credit. I'd pay to watch them if I. had to.". ters and it took IBM nearly that long to post the fact Matthews had won plus his time, even though his winning margin was more than a full city block. Not Knocking IBM Now there is no attempt to knock IBM here. It undoubtedly is one of those super-efficiently run organizations and any broker will tell you it's pretty good stock. But as far as the Olympics go, IBM is. for the birds. Spectators at track and field events in National Stadium often sit for as long as 20 minutes or more without knowing the time an event was run in, whether a' record was broken or even who the winner was sometimes. , Deciding to check it out personally after waiting nearly a half hour for the results in one of the 800-meter heats, : we phoned the -IBM; center, after the first two persons who answered said they knew nothing about the delay, a third one got on the phone. * •• . Need "Official" Results "We put out the times and results as quickly as humanly possible," the man said. "We can not put out the results, however, until we get them from the officials." A further check with several track and field officials elicited the information they were providing the times and results to IBM as rapidly as they could. Somehow, we got the impression this was turning into another typical case of buck-passing. IBM wasn't taking the blame and the officials insisted it wasn't their fault either. Well, someone is keeping the spectators in the dark and it's rather a shame considering all the elaborate preparations the Japanese made in an effort to conduct the fine'st Olympic Games ever.
