THE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, January 18, 1963 Jayhawks To Play Huskers Saturday By JIM VAN VALKENBURG Associated Press Sports Writer Kansas, the Big Eight holiday tournament champ, will attempt to vacate the basement in its game against Nebraska at Lawrence Saturday night, and Iowa State seeks a first division berth against Missouri at Columbia. Even with a victory. Kansas would finish the first semester with a 1-3 won-lost record. But the addition of talented Al Correll for the second term, covering 10 conference games, should give Kansas a lift. Kansas tied Missouri for seventh place last season and coach Dick Harp was shooting for a first division finish this year—a goal his team still can reach. The Jayhawks played near-perfect basketball in winnig the conference tourney in an upset. George Unseld, 6-foot-6 sophomore center, and senior Nolen Ellison tied for the tourney scoring crown with 69 points apiece in three games. Since then, opponents have concentrated their defense around these two men. Correl! Is a long-armed 6-3Vi senior with a variety of shots. He played with Bill Bridges and Wayne Hightower in 1960-61 when Harp's club tied for one title and was runner-up the other season. Correll missed last season with personal problems and the first semester with scholastic troubles. Nebraska lost its first two league games to Colorado and Kansas State but is expected to play Kansas a tight game. In their last five games, the two rivals have played two one-point games, a two-pointer, a three- pointer and a five-pointer. Missouri has proved itself tough at home, with victories over Indiana, Tennessee and Kansas. Ray Bob Carey, 6-7 Tiger junior, has tossed in 48 points the last two games against Colorado and Kansas. Iowa State, 1-2 in the conference and 7-7 overall, looked good in home court victories over Kansas and Drake. The Cyclones can get a fourth-place tie with K-State by winning. They are shooting for a fourth straight first division finish, Colorado's defending champs, on top with a 4-0 record, and Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, both 2-0, are idle for the semester break. All-Star Bowler Rolls 999 In 4 KANSAS CITY (AP)-Don Ellis of Houston, Tex., stepped out of obscurity Thursday to blast a 999 series, the best four game total in the 22 year history of the Ail- Star Bowling Tournament. Ellis, 34, rolled games of 225, 286, 287 and 201. He was on the brink of 300 twice after opening both his second and third games with ten straight strikes. Ellis' total, an average of nearly 250 per game, set him far ahead of the 288 man field in the first day of qualifying. His closest rival was Fred Lening of Philadelphia with 947. The previous four game record of 978 was set in last year's qualifying trials by John German, Jr., Albany, N.Y. The mark set by Ellis also overshadows a 995 record for the finals shared by Roy Lown of El Paso, Tex., and BUI Tucker of St. Louis. Ellis burst on the bowling scene in 1955 when he won the $10,000 first prize in the Petersen Classic, bowling's richest tournament. He bowled with Buddy Bomar's teams in Chicago but eventually drifted out of big time bowling and returned home. He won the 1961 American Bowling Congress Classic division doubles with Joe Kristof, but has not figured in any other important tournaments. His last appearance in the all star was in 1956. Jessie Miller, 29, a comely bowling instructress from Angola, N Y., took the lead in the women's qualifying with a three game total of 651. Jean Prylich of Maspeth, N.Y., was second in the 144 woman field with 641. The defending champions were not impressive in the opening preliminary round. Dick Weber of St. Louis rolled a competent 814 four game series but Shirley Garms of Chicago mustered only 555 for three games. Truck Recapping Get your truck tires in shape now for Spring Work! GILLILAND'S Reraoping - Vulcanizing Rt 4, Ottawa Ph Centropolis 6 Playing Coach Role For Yogi By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Yogi Berra, who has led everyone to believe he reads nothing weightier than the Katzenjammer Kids, has canceled his comic book subscription and accepted membership on the New York Yankees' board of strategy. Mr. Lawrence Berra, a Yankee since 1946, was officially given his new assignment Thursday when General Manager Roy Hamey announced that the likeable catcher-outfielder will be playing coach with the world champions during the 1963 season. "Yogi will coach at first base when he isn't playing," Hamey said, "but I want to emphasize that he is still a player. I think he can play about 75 games next season." Berra, who will be 38 in May, hit .224 in 86 games during the 1962 baseball season, has a lifetime batting mark of .284 and 350 homers—a record 305 as a catcher. The guess was Yogi's 1963 contract called for a salary in the neighborhood of $45,000. Two other sluggers signed their contracts Thursday, Hank Aaron —45 homers and 128 runs batted in—with Milwaukee, and Leon Wagner—37 homers and 107 RBI —with the Los Angeles Angels. Damages For Golf Ball Blow OLATHE, Kan. (AP)-A jury awarded Mrs. Jack A. Condon $12,500 in damages Wednesday because she was hit in the face by her partner's golf ball. Mrs. Condon had asked $50,000 from Mrs. Werner Schluter. She said her jaw was broken in five places. The women live in Kansas suburbs of Kansas City. The accident was on Nov. 11, 1961. Mrs. Condon's complaint said she had just retrieved a ball which Mrs. Schluter had knocked into a creek when she was hit in the face. OTTAWA BOWL 418Vj N.

(AP) — Substantial gains in the price of corn and soybeans were achieved the past years by the National Farm ers Organization through withholding grain from market, spokesman said Thursday. Virgil Miller, NFO chairman in Missouri, said members are advised "to hold their grain until the market goes up instead of the speculators having it in their hands. We have been doing this the past two years and we have made tremendous gains... "We raised the price of soybeans as much as 90 cents bushel the first year," Miller said. "We don't expect that much gain this time, but we do expect some." Corn prices at elevators are around $1.14 a bushel, or 12 to 15 cents higher than at the same period of ,last year. Soybeans bring $2.44, up about the same amount over 1962. Early Training For White Sox CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago White Sox will open spring training earlier than usual at Sarasota, Fla., with the battery-men reporting Feb. 20 and the resl of the 52-man squad swarming in four days later. In past years, Manager Al Lopez always has had the entire squad check in at the same time "Our slow start last season prompted the change in reporting," said General Manager Ed Short. DOUBLES CHAMPS — Ray Johnson (left) and Newton Brown, members of Pepsi-Cola team at Ottawa Bowl Lanes display trophies won with first-place finish in doubles of Holiday Tournament at Garnett. Johnson rolled 214-237-246—697 and Brown 187-202-205—594. Handicap gave them 1,422 series. Ray placed third in singles with 611. Brown 10th with 590 and another Ottawa bowler, Kenneth Cordle, seventh with 611, all scratch scores. (Herald Photo) Bowting Roundup Helen Wasn't Trying For High A bowler normally tries to knock all the pins he or she can. But not Helen Wenthe on her last shot in the Thursday Night Ladies League at the Ottawa Bowl. She needed seven pins for an 131 line and a triplicate. And seven was what she got. Ironically, Helen's team, Budge's Hardware, edged Beauty- land in total pins, 1903-1901, for a 3-1 victory. Helen's 131-131131-393 will get her one of those shoulder patches which are prized almost as nightly by bowlers as they are by soldiers. Budge's stayed far out front in the league with a- 62-18 record, compared to 42-38 for Mann- Bell which beat Towner's, 4-0. D. Kersley bowled the top line, 168, in the women's league, and Old Pro Is Eight Under Par PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP)Veteran golf pros ranging to the 60s in age are on a par-busting spree that seems like old times in the $25,000 PGA National Golf Club Championships. John Barnum, over 50 but still big, tough competitor, led the parade with an 8-under-par 64 over the 6,547-yard Sinners course at Port St. Lucie Country Club. Jack Petrone of Westchester County, N.Y., playing in the 55-59 group, shot a fine 4-under-par 68, while two others in his group— Toney Penna of Cincinnati and Charles Sheppard of Pittsfield, Mass., fired 69s. Even in the 60-64 division, there were par-busters led by Hal Sanderson of Summit, N.J., who was in with a 69. A grand total of 518 club pros from all over the nation are competing in seven age divisions in the most heavily populated of all PGA tournaments. • I • I HUGHES CUES Let There Be Light and we Have the means for this with the complete G.E. line of Bulbs Heaf Lamps Household Bulbs Decorator Bulbs Flashlight Bulbs Auto Bulbs Seal Beams Ottawa's G.E.

Overbrook Fifth; Quenemo Seventh BURLINGAME - Overbrook downed Lyndon, 57-48, in an over time game last night to capture fifth place in the Osage County Tournament while Quenemo beat Birdies Give Boros Crosby Lead PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP)Former U.S. Open champion Julius Boros defended a two- stroke lead going into the second round of Bing Crosby's national Pro-Amateur golf tourney today while a batch of "name" stars struggled to shoot themselves into contention. Tournament favorites like the great Arnold Palmer and South Africa's determined little Gary Player ran into quick trouble and found themselves trailing the tournament-wise 42-year-old, Mid- Pines, N.C., veteran who came in with a 6-under-par 66 to set the pace. Seven birdies in the last 10 holes did the trick for Boros over rolling Monterey Peninsula Country Club, which some rate as slightly less difficult than Pebble Beach and Cypress Point—the other two courses used in this 22nd playing of Bing's show. The weather was clear and slightly breezy for the opening round. Bunched in second place with 68s behind Boros were long-hitting Paul Harney, George Bayer and Dave Hill. A stroke behind at 69 came ex- Marine Phil Rodgers and Gene Bone. Palmer shot 70 and Player 73 at Cypress Point. Big Jack Nicklaus, the current U.S. Open champion, also was 3- under-par at one time, but frittered most of it away to finish with a 71.
