•TOE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, Jan. 9, 1963 Sterling Falls; Bethel On Top By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Bethel climbed to the top in the Kansas Conference basketball race Tuesday night by beating Friends 64-63 as College of Emporia downed Sterling 70-65. The night's action in the Kansas Conference left Bethel in first place with a 5-1 record, Sterling in second at 5-2, Baker third at 4-2. Southwestern fourth at 3-2 and College of Emporia tied with Ottawa at 3-3. Friends is in the cel- : lar with six straight losses. A field goal drought in the first half, only seven on 41 shots, cost Sterling the Kansas Conference lead. College of Emporia piled up a 37-24 margin in the first half and spurted again when Sterling pulled to within three points with fivR minutes left. Manly Tubbs and Glenn Rose, a freshman, were the College of Emporia sparkplugs, Tubbs scoring 23 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. Rose had 20 points and 12 rebounds. John Armstrong led Sterling with 22 points. Bethel had a narrow squeak against Friends and didn't get the lead until the start of the second half when three points overcame their one-point intermission deficit. Paul Donham pulled a steal and a layup which pulled Friends to within a point with one minute to go. The Falcons took the ball again in the final 30 seconds but couldn't penetrate the Bethel defense. Bob Pankratz was the high scorer with 25 points for Bethel. Steve Buxton had 20 for friends. Tonight's schedule: Kansas Wesleyan at Baker, McPherson at Bethany and Southwestern at Ottawa. A Little Oklahoma Guard Big Scorer 80 By JIM VAN VALKENBURG Associated Press Sports Writer Eddie Evans, fleet 5-foot-9 Oklahoma guard, is proving the little man still has a place in college basketball by challenging Ken Charlton of Colorado for the Big Eight scoring lead. The smooth 6-foot-6 Charlton still is on top with a 26.5 average but Evans is close behind at 24.0, although the shortest starter in the league.' Three of the league's top five jcorers play the backline. James Cooper, 6-3 Oklahoma State junior is fourth with a 19.5 mark and Larry Hawk, his slender 6-2 sophomore teammate, fifth at 18.0. George Unseld, 6-7 Kansas rookie pivot man, is third with 20.0. Evans is the leader in Oklahoma's new fast break attack under Bob Stevens. He is the ball hawk and runner Stevens needs to keep constant pressure on the other club. He made his .first nine shots and finished with 31 points, a career high, against Iowa State Monday night. His other top scoring games this season were 26 against Texas Tech and 25 against both St. John'^pf New York and Purdue. Evans was Oklahoma's third best rebounder last season and only eight grabs from No. 2. Charlton, lame - knee senior, fired 35 points against Kansas in his first conference game, missing only two shots all night, then added 18 at Nebraska. He has a perfect record for 21 foul shots in league play. Other top conference scorejrsiariE Marv Straw and Vince Brewer.of Iowa State, each at 15.5; and four players tied at 15.0—Farrell Johnson, Oklahoma; Bill Vincent, Nebraska; Nolen Ellison, Kansas, and Ray Bob Carey, Missouri. Kansas State hasn't played conference game. Willie Murrell, K-State's lithe 6-6 juco transfer, is the No. 2 scorer for all games with an 18.3 average. Charlton leads with 20.8 Unseld is third with 17.0, Evans fourth at 176, Ellison fifth at 16.3 Then come Gary Marriott, K- State, 15.3; Jim Davis, Colorado, 15.0; Daryl Petsch, Nebraska 14.7; Straw 13.6; Johnson 12.8; James King t Oklahoma State rookie, 12.77; Charlie Jones, Nebraska, 12.75; Carey 12.6; Gary Kleven, Iowa State, and Vincent, 12.3. Jerry Gardner, Kansas back- liner, was the scoring champion last season with a 20.2 average. Charlton was runner-up at 19.3 and Ellison fourth with 17.6. Bowling Wenthe, Lewis Hit Top Series A pair of bowlers in the men's Royal T League at the Royal T Lanes came up with a pair of good series last night. High was Bill Wenthe with a 627 on lines of 216-187-224. W. Lewis put the best line, 233, in his 615 series. He had 211 and 171 to go with the 233.

(AP) - Richie Ashburn, who spent 12 of his 15 National League seasons with the Philadelphia. Phillies, has retired from baseball and will return to his "second home" as a broadcaster. The veteran outfielder, one of a select group with 2,500 or more major league hits, said Tuesday he had been hired as a member of a three-man team which will broadcast Philadelphia Phillies games next season. Ashburn, who will be 36 in March, played with the New York Mets last year and led the club with a .306 batting mark in 135 games. He twice led the National League in batting and finished with a lifetime mark of .308. He joined the Phillies in 1948 and remained through 1959. Richmond Beats Parker, 37-36 Cyclones Look Good On Floor And Paper PARKER — The Richmond Cubs defeated Parker, 37-36, in a non-league game at Parker last night for the Cubs' first win of the season. Coach Phil Rose cited Leon Sobba, who scored 16 points, and Delbert Roeckers as his top players. Roeckers scored five of his 10 points in the crucial third quarter to put Richmond two points ahead of Parker, 29-27. In a close fourth quarter, Parker scored nine and Richmond eight, leaving the Cubs with a bare one point victory. The Princeton Orioles will play at Richmond Friday night.

Score by quarters: Richmond 1014 58—37 Parker 11 6 10 9-36 By CONRAD DOWNING On paper, Coach H. K. Stevens' Cyclones (6-3) looked like the favorites in the East Kansas League, but defending champion Argentine (3-3) already has lost one of its crowns to the Ot- tawans, that of the EKL tournament title, and they aren't going to surrender the league flag without a tussle. Much-improved Turner (3-3) presents a strong challenge to the two top clubs even though Argentine thumped the Bears, 7661, last week. Small, faster Bonner Springs (3-3) could be the giant tumbler if it has a good night. Olathe (3-4) and Rosedale (1-5) look to be the tail-enders, but even the last - place teams that aren't real strong could rise up to surprise first division leaders. Dick Howser Signs Contract KANSAS CITY (AP) - Dick Howser, the Kansas City Athletics' 1961 rookie star who spent most of last season on the bench stevens has 6 . 6 Harry Morton with an injury, has signed his 1963 contract.- , : He is the first player to sign with the A's this year, club officials said Tuesday night. His salary was not disclosed. In 1961, Howser, a shortstop, Einished second to Boston pitcher Don Schwall in voting for rookie of the year. He got off to a good start last season, but broke a Ihumb on June 24 and saw only limited duty thereafter. . „ . . OSU Narrows Coach Search STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma City Daily Oklahoman said Tuesday night that Oklahoma State University had narrowed -its sekrch for a new football coach to two men—Bill Beall, defensive.: backfield coach at Louisiana State and Phil Cutchin, top assistant at Alabama. The newspaper said it got its information from a top source at the policy-making level at the university. The school is expected to select the new coach this weekend to succeed Cliff Speegle, who resigned after the 1962 football season. Pro Basketball Tuesday's Results Boston 118, San Francisco 112 Detroit 109, New York 93 Syracuse 119, Cincinnati 116 Los Angeles 99, St. Louis 86 Today's Games .- , New York vs. St. Louis at Detroit Los Angeles at Detroit Cincinnati at Syracuse Boston at Chicago in his stable with a 17.5 average and 14 rebounds a game. Morton is second in EKL scoring and presents the Cyclones with the best big man in the league. Ron Mendell, 15.5, and Roy Dunn, 13.7, give the Reds a stiff backbone in their, scoring thrust.^Eddie Davidson, 6.2, and Jim Lewis, 5.6, lend the best balance the Cyclones have seen in several seasons. Argentine's Larry Bale finds the flag trail a bit rocky with the loss of his terrific center Leroy Moore, but he still has enough balance in his starting quintet to cause other teams concern. Richard Mabion, 12.6, leads the scorers with Drue Jennings, 11.6, and Jim Doyle, 10.3, giving him good support. Larry Moore, 8.5, and Bob Bray, 6.3, provide the scoring talent. Bale's Mustangs don't have the big scorer but Mabion has chucked in 28 points in their last,week's defeat of Turner for the top scoring effort by a Horse this season. The most interesting comeback title by a league club goes'. to Turner's Golden Bears under the wing of former K-State star,-Jim Holwerda. After a 1-17 record last year, the Bears are 3r3 behind Don Pankey, 13.3; Joe Mendez, 10.5; George Miller, 9.5; Don Webb, 9.5, and Earle Burke, 5.1. Jim LaPoint, 3.6, and 6-4 Jim Tinsely, 3.4, have seen lots of action to date. The Bears have potential but still need more high scoring to keep pace with the top two, Ottawa and Argentine. Fielding the smallest team in the league, Bonner Spring's Braves boast the top EKL scorer in Clayton McGee at 18.5. Height is a serious problem for Coach Ken Cochran but he has Wayne NOTICE OF ANNUAL MEETING The annual meeting of the members of Ottawa Savings and Loan Association will be held at the office of the Association at 109 East 2nd Street, Ottawa, Kansas, on Wednesday, January 16, 1963, at 2:00 o'clock, P.M., for the purpose of electing a director for the coming year and to transact such other business as may properly come before the annual meeting of the members.

Simla Named Colt Coach BALTIMORE (AP)-The Baltimore Colts have fired Weeb Ewbank as head coach. Replacing him is Don Shula, defensive back field coach of the Detroit Lions. Carroll Rosenbloom, owner of the National Football League club, announced the change Tuesday, calling it "probably the most difficult task I've ever faced." Ewbank's dismissal confirmed weeks of speculation that he would lose his job. He coached the Colts to NFL championships in 1958 and 1959. Since then Baltimore has been just another team in the Western Division. Shula, 33, accepted a two-year contract for 1963-64 in his first head coaching position. Salary was not disclosed. Rosenbloom said Ewbank, 55 was offered another job with the Colts. The club owner denied reports that it was the general manager's position now held by Don Kellett. "They offered me another job in the organization, but I've had no chance to think it over," said Ewbank. The Herald pays ?5 every week for the best news tip turned in by a reader.
