THE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, January 24, 1963 It'll Be 4-0 For Cyclones Or Mustangs After Friday By CONRAD DOWNING Like an old familiar melody, "Now is the Hour" for the Argentine Mustangs as they host the Ottawa Cyclones in what probably will be the showdown battle in the Eastern Kansas League. Both teams are sporting perfect 3-0 records going into tomorrow night's battle. Coach Larry Bale will have his Mustangs ready for the Cyclones after taking a decisive 70-57 licking in the EKL tournament to lose their crown to the impudent newcomers from Ottawa. Argentine pounded Rosedale last week but fell to third-ranked Ward, 77-45, to give the Horses a 5-4 overall record. Ottawa will have its job cut out as it tries to tag the home team with a second defeat and will have to saddle the Mustang's ace center, Richard Mabion, a certain choice for outstanding player on the Argentine starting quintet Mabion's best effort to date was a 28-point outburst against the Turner Bears. He will have capable help from Jim Doyle, a top rebounder and scorer for the Horses. A factor hi the game tomorrow night will be the recent arrival of touted rookie Bob Bray, a 6-5 standout sophomore center. Bray was the deciding factor in the Mustangs' 52-39 triumph over Rosedale Friday as he scored 11 points and blocked 12 shots to completely demoralize the Wildcat offease. Coupled with some key rebounds, it was enough to earn him a gleam from Coach Bale's eye as the key to a sagging of fense. No doubt Bray will hinder the talented Cyclone center, Har ry Morton, who stands 6-6. It isn't bad enough that the pivotal contest in the flag chase is upon him, but Cyclone mentor HI K. Stevens has his worries multiplied by the bad knee of Roger Ferguson, injured during scrimmage yesterday, and the illness of starting forward Jim Lewis. Jim has been a key figure since his top-flight performance of Isist week when he tossed in 5 of 11 field goal attempts for 14 pojnts in a double overtime victory over the Turner Bears ONE IN, ONE OUT? — Ben Park (left) may get starting nod for Cyclones tomorrow night at Argentine. Jim Lewis (right) is ill. (Herald Photos) Stevens spent Wednesday working on a defense to stop Bray 63' and Mabion, top score for the Mustangs. "I've got to find someone to stop their big 6-5 boy," said Stevens yesterday during practice. I'm going to give Ben Park, Earle Doman and Doug Schultz a chance at' the fifth man slot unless Jim (Lewis) returns and is able to play. I was going to use Roger Ferguson at that spot instead of Lewis since he was sick but he injured his knee in practice," worried Stevens. The winner of this contest undoubtedly will have the inside track in the EKL, but Coach Stevens took special note of his team's prowess. Harry Morton is second in the league in scoring with a 17.2 average and is pulling down 14 rebounds per game. With Ronnie Mendell, 14.0, and Roy Dunn, 13.6, in his stable, Stevens' picture looks rosy, or at least did until the two casualties yesterday. Eastern Kansas League observers probably think this is the goofiest league in Kansas, and EKL Leading Scorers 1. Clayton McGee — Bonner Springs 9 17.5 2. Harry Morton — Ottawa 11 17.2 3.

The veteran St. Louis Pro took the lead in the fourth round of the finals with a Petersen point total of 82-12 on 11 victories, 5 losses and a total pinfall of 3,562. Billy Welu of St. Louis, the qualifying champion, rampled Patterson 878 to 804 in the first round and dropped him into 13th place. But in the second round, Patterson swept his 4-game series with J. Wilbert Sims, outscoring the Chicago bowler 951 to 826. Patterson also blanked his next foe, Terry Key of Seattle, to claim third place. Outscored by Ed Lubanski of Detroit in the fourth-round, 954 to 935, Patterson managed to divide the match and take the lead. Robbie Roinson of Wilmington, Del., held second place through the first four rounds with 81-33. Under the Petersen point system a bowler gets one point for every game won and one point for every 50 pins knocked down. Don Carter, four time former champion from St. Louis, held the lead briefly but fell to fifth place when he lost four straight to Welu in the fourth round. Defend ing champion Dick Weber of St. Louis was sixth. Marion Ladewig, 7-time champion from Grand Rapids, Mich., led the women with 40-27 points. Donna Zimmercan of Akron, Ohio, who led for the first three rounds, dropped to second place. they wouldn't miss it far. Contender Turner was knocked off by a tailender, Rosedale, while Olathe polished off Bonner Springs. Turner finished second in the EKL tournament while Bonner placed third. Now both are carrying 0-3 records into league play while Olathe is 2-1 and Rosedale 1-2. If the worm turns, the Argentine Mustangs have the best chance, since they fell apart at tournament time in a 70-57 loss to Ottawa and 59-40 junket to Bonner Springs. Since then the Horses have been mighty touch, dropping games only to top-ranked Wyandotte, 47-35, and third place Ward. Ottawa is the only team in the league that has maintained a steady pace, but, again, this is the funniest league in Kansas. And that's no laughing matter. Last Week's Results: Ottawa 60, Turner 57; Argentine 52, Rosedale 39; Ward 77, Argentine 45; Bonner Springs 63, Osawatomie 47; Olathe 52, Bonner Springs 40.

Has Great Hope In Bob Turley BOSTON (AP)-BUl Rigney, jvho piloted the Los Angeles An- jels to a surprising third-place finish in the American League last season, says he's hoping for big things this year from Bob Turley. Turley was named the outstanding pitcher in the majors in 1958, then seemed to lose everything. He won only two games last season for the New York Yankees and was traded to the Angels. "We just can't believe that Turley could be so great less than five years ago and then become nothing," Rigney said Wednesday night. "We're certainly hoping he can come through." Rigney was in Boston to speak at a dinner sponsored by the Boston baseball writers.

CH 2-4700 Big Names, Low Scores SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-Professional golfer Gardner Dickinson had some familiar names in his foursome for Wednesday's pro- amateur prelude to the San Francisco Open Tournament — Kennedy, Johnson and Washington. They didn't do too well. Dickinson shot a 71 and his three partners, William T. Kennedy, Glendo Johnson and Tom Washington—all Northern California amateurs — could help him only two strokes among them to a 69 best-ball score.

He'sMrJba And They Win For Him By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer They never call him Hank. Or Henry. Or even coach. It's always Mr. Iba. Which may be indicative of the respect accorded Henry P. Iba, Oklahoma State athletic director and basketball coach by the students who know him best, his players. This respect is compounded of a number of factors: His unbending discipline, concentration on details, demand for perfection and, perhaps as much as anything, his record. His Cowboys stormed over Oklahoma 81-62 Wednesday night, pushing their season record to a solid 12-2, their Big Eight mark to 3-0 and Iba's career coaching total to 681-234. Only two other coaches have ever won more, the now retired Dr. Phog Allen of Kansas, who had a 771-223 record over 49 years, and E. A. Diddle, now in his 41st season at Western Kentucky, who has a 751-279 mark. In Addition to the Oklahoma State triumph, which stamps the Cowboys as a Big Eight title threat, other major results on a relatively light schedule included Florida's 94-86 victory over Florida State, Army's 61-34 rout of Williams, Denver's easy 71-58 conquest of Air Force and unbeaten Central Connecticut's llth straight triumph, an 88-74 decision over American International. Casper Still Shooting Under Par SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Billy Casper says he's playing his best golf ever on the touring pros' winter tour, which should serve as a warning to others starting the $50,000 San Francisco International Open today. For Billy won the $5,300 first prize in Bing Crosby's tournament Sunday and shared low-pro honors Wednesday with Dave Ragan in the pro-amateur prelude to the San Francisco event with a 4-under-par 67. Each received $462.50 for his effort. "I feel I'm playing better on the winter tour than I ever have played on it," the 1959 U.S. Open champion said after posting five birdies and one bogey Wednesday. "I think a lot of it is due to my new putting stance." Most of the pros reported the greens at the Harding Park Municipal Course, scene of the 72-hole test, were bumpy—a condition aggravated by the long dry spell .in Northern California. Arnold Palmer just shook his head when a newsman asked about the greens following his even-par 71. Gary Player, the 1961 San Francisco champion, didn't arrive in time to play in the pro-amateur but ranks among the tournamenl favorites. KEEN TV SERVICE 114 8. Main OH 2-34! Beveled and Plain Edge MIRRORS For Any Room in Your Home SUFFRON Glass Co. 418 N Main Ph CH 2-2515 Pick Team That Could Have Won And Win Bundle By JOHN FARROW LONDON (AP)—Television has had its panel games, its guessing games and its quizzes for years. But come Saturday the sports world may surpass these ventures with perhaps the biggest guessing game in history—picking the results of soccer games never played with millions of dollars as prizes. A jackpot that could run as high as $840,000 for a 2 cent bet is at stake. This bizarre situation came about because of England's icy weather that has forced cancellation of many games for four weeks. As a result the legalized British soccer pools, which pay off on the results, have about $14 million in the kitty. The pool promoters came up with this idea: the pools would go on as usual this week, but if the bulk of the games are again postponed a Big Six panel would, name the teams they think would have won. An announcement Wednesday, giving the names of the Big Six, said: "In the event of more than 30 football matches listed on this Saturday's Pools' Promoters' As- sociation coupon being postponed, he Pool Promoters' Association panel of experts, under the chairmanship of Lord Brabazon, will announce their results of the canceled matches on Saturday from London." Lord Brabazon, 78, is a former government minister, pioneer motorist and aviator. An estimated 11 million Britons, wives as well as husbands, take a flutter on the weekly pools.
