I PAGE 5 ! 4 TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE t Monday, Oct 19/1964 U.S. Captures 31st Olympic Gold Medal By LEO H. PETERSEN UPI Sports Editor TOKYO (UPI)—Mike Larrabee, a 30-year-old mathematics teacher who almost missed the Olympics because of injuries, churned from behind today to win the 400 meter dash and Edith McGuire of Atlanta scored a record victory in the women's 200 meter to give the United States a total of 31 gold medals for the games. The U.S. won a silver medal in the equestrian team event but suffered a sharp setback in the 1,500 meter run when Tom O'Hara and schoolfioy Jim Ryun failed to qualify for the final, leaving only Dyrol Burle-: son of Cottage Grove, Ore., to carry American hopes. . Larrabee, who lives in Fillmore, Calif., charged up from third place in the stretch to score by a yard over Yale student Wendell Mottley of Trinidad and Andrzej Badensky of Poland in 4G.1 seconds. Ulis Williams of Compton, Calif., was a badly, tired fifth. Miss McGuire, silver medalist in the 100 meters, led all the way in the 200 and hit the tape in 23 seconds to knock two- tenths off the Olympic mark set in I960 by another Tennessee State star, Wilma;Rudolph. . Ups Medal Count Miss McGuire, a 20-year-old 130 pounder, won by a foot and a half over Irena Kirszenstein of Poland with Marilyn Black of Australia third. Edith's victory, coupled- with Larrabee's, gave the U.S. a total of 12 track and field medals, equal­ ling the 19G0 output at Rome. Tamara Press of Russia won the women's discus as expected with a record throw of 187 feet, 10>,i inches but .Mrs. Olga Fit- kova Connolly of Culver City, Calif., the 1955 winner for Czechoslovakia, finished . 12th with 169-2 ; :i. ' ( / Tamara's equally famous sister, Irena Press, flopped in the i SO meter hurdles in which she holds the world record of 10.5 and it cost the Russian team a gold medal considered already • in the bag. " ' The hurdle medal went to 24- year-old Karin Balzer of Ger- : many with Teresa Ciepla of Po­ land second and Pamela Kilborn of Australia third in a race so close all three equalled Irena's world record. Rosie Bonds of Riverside, Calif., was last in the field of eight. U.S. Takes Second Italy, led by Mauro Checcoli, won both the individual and team gold medals in the equestrian event. The U.S. team, led by Michael Page of Briarcliff Manor, N.Y., won the silver medal with Page fourth in the individual please. American pistol shooters fared badly' as Marine Capt. Bill McMillan of Turtle Creek, Pa"., the defending champ, fell far behind in the event won by Finland's Penttitapio'Linnosvuo. America failures in the 1,500 meter trials were shockers since both O'Hara of Chicago and Ryun, the Wichita, Kans., schoolboy, were considered top candidates among the newly- developed Yank distance running strength. But Burleson, sixth in the Rome 1,500- four years ago, wound up as the last American by winning his heat in 3:41.5. O'Hara, who beat Dyrol for the AAU, crown, finished seventh in his heat in 3:43.4 Ryun ran last among nine in his heat in 3:55. Yachts Look Promising In yachtfng, American boats led the standings in the 5.5 meter, Dragon and Star classes and were third in the Flying Dutchman and Finn classes. Prospects were considered good for gold medals in two or more classes. Italians finished one-two in the.individual cycling Sprints. In Greco-Roman wrestling, old medals were hauled down in eight weight classes. Russia, however, salvaged only a silver medal out of the first four divisions decided with Turkey, Yugoslavia, Japan and Sweden romping off with lightweight, middleweight, bantam- eight and light heavyweight ;olds.

All indications are that, with another "great" basketball team expected, there is • going to be another record demand for season tickets. With 11 home games on the schedule this sea.- son and only seven out of town, the price for adult season tickets has been set at $10 each by the T.H.S. athletic council and $4.00 for student season tickets. For adults, this is less than one dollar per game, and jn addition, with all seats reserved, and sold on a first come first served basis, it gives fans the opportunity to reserve their favorite locations.- Athletic director Dick Barr announced over the weekend that the high school has been promised delivery of the tickets no later than Monday, Nov. 9. The probability is that public sale of the tickets will start Wednesday night, Nov. 11, so fans in "close" circumstances who will have a number of tickets to purchase are now notified to start putting their spare dollars in the sugar bowl. Only tickets to be sold in advance of the public sale will be to faculty .members and parents of the basketball players, and these, as well as the general public will be limited for the first time to four tickets per person. In otherwords, no adult may buy more than four adult season tickets. If he wants more than four adult .tickets he wil' have to have another adult present to buy the rest. This applies equally to , faculty mem bers and b-b parents. Student season tickets will gc on sale at the respective schools so the night of the sale to the general public, parents will no need to buy student seasor tickets unless they have pre school-age children in thei families for whom they want t buy tickets. tFaculty membe David Winks has been appoin* ed ticket manager and will ar nounce, later the exact date an time of the ; j With the consolidation of thi southern half of the county in ! to one high school, more seasor j tickets have been ordered an- ' are expected to be sold tha ever in the history of the lug school. SPORTS PARADE By MILTON RtCHMAN UPI Sports'Writer TOKYO (UPI) — Everyone likes to walk in the rain occasionally, but this was slightly ridiculous. Imagine stepping out your trontdoor and seeing 34 fully [fcrown men, clad only in what ooks suspiciously like their underwear, blithely walking down the street completely oblivious po a driving downpour. It would seem a nightmare, yet that same exact scene was ;nacted on the wet, slippery streets of metropolitan Tokyo Sunday when a thoroughly dedicated group paid no attention whatsoever to a pelting rain 'and took off on a gruelling 31- jmile walk for the 50-kilometer •gold medal. Abdon Pamich of Italy wound up with it and his first words were: "My feet feel fine." Pamich, a 31-year-old clerk for an oil company in Genoa, had one mishap during his four-hour and ll-minute odyssey but shrugged it off in true Olympic fashion. Under the, rules of the race, food is placed on a table- at the 20-kilometer mark for all competitors, the only stipulation being that they do not stop walking while they scoop up or eat the provided nourishment. Poor Pamich. He had the extreme misfortune of getting some cold food and since it is general knowledge what that will do to one's stomach, picture his dilemma 18 kilometers later. Pamich speaks little English, yet he described perfectly how he felt at the end of 38 kilometers by rubbjng both hands across his stomach and closing his eyes in an unmistakably pained expression. Since accidents will happen even in the best Olympic events, the resourceful Italian took the only possible way out, consuming a record-breaking 15 seconds, • during which Paul Vincent Nihill of Britain overtook him temporarily. Regained Lead "But I got back to the"'lead in a little while and no one 3ver caught me again," Pam- ch explained in Italian. If anyone wonders what could iossess a man to walk 31 miles n a heavy rain simply to win i medal, the goodlooking, blond talian winner furnished the ierfect answer. _, "I"walk for the sport of it evjc ;ry day," he said, "and I walk :o win in an event like this." Every man to his own taste HOW ABOUT THOSE HATS? —The U.S. Olympic Team marches into Tokyo's National Stadium looking very much as If somebody with initials LBJ supplied the hats. Lions Hard on Heels Of Baltimore Colts By GEORGE C. LANGFORD UPI Sports Writer The Baltimore Colts aim to please, but Coach Don Shula is a hard man. . "We've made some mistakes and we've got to correct them," Shula snapped Sunday after his Colts won their fifth straight game and second in a row over the Green Bay Packers, 24-21. You don't win the Western Division championship by beating the Green Bay Packers twice," Shula frowned. But that very feat propelled the Chicago Bears to tfie championship in the Western Conference of the National Football League last year and if a couple of disgruntled Colts were heard to mumble something like "it ain't bad for openers" who could blame them.

Tipton's Quality Store for Men and Boys \, Always First with the Latest defeat. It was his second touchdown of the day and pinned the third defeat in six giTies on the Packers, pre-season favorites to win their third NFL title in' four years. Paul Hornung, whose two missed extra-points had led to two one-point defeats for the 'Packers earlier this season, misfired on five field goals, one from the 17-yard line. It was a blocked Hornung field goal attempt by Jerry.Logan, who ran it back from the Colt 30 to the Packer 34, which set up the winning 'touchdown. The Detroit Lions (4-1-1) re mained only a half game behind the Colts by blanking the defending champion Bears 10-0 but suffered the loss of quarterback Earl Morrall with a fractured collarbone. Morrall's replacement, Mit Plum, fired a 12-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter and Wayne Walker added a 43-yard field goal to complete the embarrassment of the Bears, who lost their fourth in six games. The St. Louis Cardinals and Cleveland Browns remained tied for the Eastern Division lead, pulling out last-minute victories. The Cardinals scored twice in the last 27 seconds to break a 24-24 deadlock created by Jim Martin's 24-yard field goal with one minute, 50 seconds remaining to beat Washington 38-24. Charley Johnson climaxed a last minute drive of 73 yards with a 14-yard scoring pass to Bobby Joe Conrad. Pat Fisher intercepted a Washington pass and raced 39 yards for the,final score. . Bernie 'Parrish intercepted a pass and ran it back 54 yards for Cleveland's winning touchdown in a 20-16 decision over the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys' defense had limited the Browns to only one first down in the second half. Jimmy Brown set up Cleveland's other touchdown with a 71-yard run. In other games, the New York Giants lost their fourth game, bowing 23-17 to Philadelphia; the Minnesota Vikings ON THE SIDELINES BY HAM RIGG Statistics compiled by coach also eliminated Danny's chances Moses on last Friday's game-of shaking off the hands of the show Tipton outrushed Alex 234 yards to 22, Alex completed 2 of 11 passes for a net of 37 yards (completing one for 51 yards and losing 14 yards on the other completion) while Tipton completed three of ten passes good for gains of 6, 3 and 10 yards. Tipton lost 55 yards on penalties to only 5 for Alexandria. Tipton fumbled three times and lost them all while Alex'fumbled five times but recovered three of their own fumbles. - Individually, Moore led in yards gained from scrimmage with 121 yards in 14 carries for an 8.9 average. Harmon carried four times and gained 26 yards for a 6.5 average, Rumbaugh carried 11 times and gained 44 yards for an even 4-yard average and .Danny Crouch carried 16 times, gained 58 yards but was also thrown for losses of 22 yards to complete an average gain of two and one-fourth yards per carry. No Need To Worry Some fans expressed concern that Danny Crouch's yardage decreased so much. Let's remember that, for the season, Danny has carried a total of 117 times, Moore has carried 70 and Rumbaugh 54. Their average gain for the season is Crouch 6.9 yards a carry while Moore and Rumbaugh are almost an identical 6.5 per carry. The more times a boy carries and the more times a boy gains, the more thoroughly he is scouted by opposing coaches and the more complete are. their plans set and concentrated on stopping him. Rather than a source for worry, it is a credit to the boy that after seven games he is still averaging better than'101 yards a game. Even when he doesn't carry the ball there are one and two-guys concentrating on him, "just in case," and in turn that eases the job of the other ball carriers. It also makes it more likely, that sometime during the night he is going to get trapped behind the line of scrimmage for a loss. A Handicap Knowing he's a marked man might be hurting Danny. .There isn't a more determined boy in the Tipton lineup, nor one who hates more to lose yardage. We watched him very closely Friday night and it appeared to us that his determination to show a gain is actually costing him some extra yardage. Several times, seeing he was going to be tackled, he left his feet in a dive for the desired or necessary gain'for a first down before the tackier actually had his hands on him. It produced the desired effect of a gain, but it would-be tackier and netting what might have been much' larger yardage. At Cathedral, for example, Danny wasn't leaving his feet but instead kept digging, frequently dragging tacklers after him. With Teachers Institute can­ celling school classes Thursday and-Friday of this week, the game wiWi longtime foe Noblesville will be played Wednesday night on the Tipton field. Game time again 7:45. We asked Moses Saturday morning at the downtown coaches club if he'expected any trouble with the Millers. He answered, "Gosh yes! With the natural rivalry between the two schools they're bound to be, fired up." We told him we didn't mean Noblesville, but whether he thought Tipton would be able to get itself fired up for the game after appearing somewhat "flat" at the outset of the Alex game.. Moses said yes. that the same rivalry which would spark the Millers would spark the Tipton boys, but he expected it to- be another tough ball game. As a matter of fact, from here on out they're all going io be tough. Noblesville because of the long standing rivalry and Peru and Wabash because of the conference title being at stake. Peru will be particularly tough after that unexpected setback by Elwood. Tackled Hard Enough can't be said-in praise of the great effort shown by Alexandria Friday night. Moses revealed Saturday that after the game the Tipton kids said they hadn't been hit harder by any team' this year, and that included Cathedral. Crouch was a particular target of \the Tigers for last year it was Danny who^ scored six of Tipton''s touch-' downs against Alex. And despite the Tiger determination for an upset, ifreflects a lot of credit on the boys as well as on coach Jim WehsoIIek that there wasn"t any "dirty" football' in the game. They played hard, but they also played clean and that is the way schoolboy rivalry should be played. son, subbing for injured Tim my Brown, scored two first half touchdowns to boost the Eagles to their second win over the Giants this, season. Matson, playing his first full game on offense in three years, broke away for scoring runs of 54 and four yards. Bill Brown, Vikings fullback, tallied three times, twice on passes from Fran Tarkenton, to lead the Minnesota offense.
