PAGE 4 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Wednesday, Nov. 11 1964 Bob Timberlake Not Interested In Pro Football ANN ARBOR, Mich. (UPI)— One of the top professional prospects among the current crop of collegiate quarterbacks doesn't plan to play for pay. Bob Timberlake, who has directed Michigan to six victories in seven games, wants to enter the Presbyterian ministry when his college days are finished in June. Timberlake, who rushed for 44 yards and passed for 53 more in leading the Wolverines to a 21-6 victory over defending Rose Bowl and' Big Ten champion Illinois last Saturday, was chosen United Press International's "Midwest back of the week." \ The gains upped his total season marks in rushing and passing to 1,092 yards. He has carried the ball 106 times for 466-yards and completed 49 df 95 passes for 626 yards. He's scored 66 points on. seven touchdowns, 15 conversions and three field goals while passing for three touchdowns. "But living as a Christian is more important to me than playing football," the 6-foot-4, 210-pounder from Franklin, Ohio, said. "I hope to use any football ability I might have to help the cause of Christianity in the United "States; "God has given-each of us ability in certain 'fields. He wants us to use this ability. He wants singers to sing and I figure he wants to -play, football . And any success I might achieve I hope I can use to help steer people in the direction of Jesus Christ." A "B" student,, he plans to enter the Princeton Theological Seminary in September. He is a sociology major and is also active in the Ann Arbor chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes along with offensive line coach Tony Mason. It appears with two games to play Timberlake will become the third-leading ground gainer in Michigan history. Bob Chappuis gained 1,395 yards ijn 1947 and Tom Harmon picked up 1,358 in 1940. Both -were 'All- Americans those years and Timberlake, who silently prays 20 minutes prior to each game, is being boosted for .a similar post-season laurel. He also is being considered for the Heisman trophy and is almost a certain winner of Michigan's most valuable player award. Notre Dame Favored To Beat M.S.U. OUT OF ACTION SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (UPI) —Elmo Plaskett, catch er in the Pittsburgh Pirates' organization who broke his leg in a Puerto Rican Winter League game Sunday, will'be out of action for at least two months.

Ham and Turkey SHOOT Sunday, November 8, 1964 U Noon Still Board Only 1 Mile East of Atlanta On County Line ATLANTA CONSERVATION -CLUB SPORTS PARADE NE WYORK (UPI) — Some people never forget a face; Paul Richards never forgets a favor. That's one of-the primary reasons Clint Courtney was signed as a combination coach and bullpen catcher by the Houston Colts the other day. Richards, who serves as Houston '•' general manager, probably is one of the hardest men in baseball to get to know. He is that way because he wants it that way and no one really has been able to invade his innermost thoughts. Opinions about him vary although it is unanimously agreed he'll go all" the way down the line for a friend. Object To Methods There are those who object strongly to Richards' baseball methods and there. are those, men like Brooks Robinson, Ken Johnson, Nellie Fox, Luman Harris, Jimmy Adair, Jim Busby and Courtney who think he's the greatest guy who ever came down the pike. The quality I've always liked about Richards is his ability to. admit when he has been wrong. It took a great deal of courage at times, particularly when others' werS^ present, but there is no recollection of his ever trying to hide behind any of his mistakes. Wittingly or not, Courtney mapped out his future course in- baseball three years ago while he still was a part-time catcher with the Baltimore Orioles and Richards was managing the club. Summons Courtney Rochester was an Oriole farm club at the time and when the Red Wings became hard-pressed for a catcher, Richards summoned Courtney to his office. "I'd like you to go to Rochester and give them a hand there," Richards told Courtney. "You don't have to go if you don't want to, but if you do, I'll guarantee you'll have a job with me next year wherever I'm at." That was good enough for Courtney. "Ah'll go," declared the scrappy little Louisiana receiver. The \37-year-old Courtney hasn't regretted it since. One place or another he has always had a job, thanks to Richards, who openly confesses he admires the bespectacled sparkplug. PERRY GETS POST NEW YORK (UPI) — Perry N.

Jim Says: "U-2 CAN BE A COUPON CLIPPER AT T? A T TTTTHL^O^ Liston Plans To "Open Door 7 On Cassius Clay By JACK CUDDY BOSTON (UPI) — Entering their final stage of training today, champion Cassius Clay and ex-champ Sonny Liston expressed implicit confidence that their respective ring strategies could achieve a knockout in Monday night's return title fight at Boston Garden. ! Clay's two rounds of sparring at the Boston Arena annex gymnasium today could be his last before he begins tossing leather against Sonny in the Garden at 10:30 p.m., EST, Monday. Drew Bundini Brown, assistant trainer and camp coordinator, said today, "whether the champion will box again on Thursday depends on whether he feels exactly sharp. enough now and whether we feel'he looks exactly sharp enoughTto" really float like a butterfly and sting like a bee." In order to determine "the floating and stinging" potentials, for the scheduled 15- rounds Monday, Cassius will take a trial run on the road for 45 to 55 minutes Thursday at 5 a.m., Bundini told skeptical reporters. "That test run will show the champipn and us exactly how to plan Monday's fight," the coordinator emphasized. "We have a test run like that before every fight now." Veteran Liston claims his "open door" policy will achieve an avenging knockout this time over young Cassius Muhammad Ali. That policy failed in their February title bout, "because I hurt my left shoulder in the first round," he said. Sonny, training at Plymouth, Mass., expllined, "getting a knockout is like entering a man's house. You gotta keep knockin' till he opens the door. I had Clay hurt bad in the fifth round and he was ready to open the door but my arm went so numb I couldn't keep knocking."

C. International with six foreign Thoroughbreds out to prove the 13th running of the classic is far from a match race between the American entries. 1 This is the fourth; crack at the International for Kelso who was" second three times but only the firsr try for. Gun Bow who flashed into national prominence this year. The son of Gun Shot, owned by the Gedney Farm, threatens to wrest the American championship from Kelso who has held it for 'the past four years. America's two outstanding horses have raced against one another four times this season. The score is even at, two and two and if either |pf- them scampers off with fiirst place money of $90,000 in the mile and one-half classic , over the turf course at Laurel, the championship goes with the winner's purse. • j The International score is even, too, with six victories for American horses and six for invaders. This time the United States appears strongest with Kelso, who inay be in the last race of his brilliant career, at 7 to 5 and Gun Bow at 8 to 5. But six nations have horses at the International to dispute this. Italy sent Veronese, its standout handicap horse. From France came Belle Sicambre, its champion 3-year ; old filly. For' the seventh straight year Russia has a representative in the race, with Anilinj carrying its colors this time.' Venezuela sent Primordial, while Ireland was represented by | Biscayne and Japan by. Ryu Forel. SibELMES BY HAM RIGG Tipton .basketball coach Dick Barr yesterday cut his 1964-65 varsity squad down to Sectional size - 12 players - and named 10 more boys for his B-team of all underclassmen which forms a group of 22 which will suit up for the varsity and the preliminary games the rest of the season. "Cut Day", is one of the saddest facing all coaches, and for Barr it was - no different than for any of his colleagues. Lopped off in the final cut were two Tipton boys who have turned out faithfully for one season of freshman and two seasons of B-Team ball, and another boy who has done the same thing for Jefferson Township, and it's hard to cut boys like that. The other to go was a Tipton boy for whom Barr has a world of respect as an athlete and as a competitor, and a letter winner for three years in football and two years in track. Had the latter boy had just one year of fundemental • training under Barr, he'd probably, have survived, but this was his first year out for basketball and it was just a little too much to overcome. ZENITH ZENITH ZENITH Z E N I T H ZENITH IEHIIH COLOR COLOR COLOR HINKIE TV SERVICE .128 N.'MAIN: i Kennedy Signs to Head Cubs CHICAGO (UPI)—Bob Kennedy was signed today for a third season as manager in fact but not in name of the Chicago Cubs and he'll have new faces on the bench to help him try to improve on 1964's eighth place finish. Kennedy's - agreement to be head coach of. the Cubs for another year was announced Tuesday by President Philip K. Wrigley. Wrigley also revealed that former San Francisco Giants • Manager Alvin Dark and former New York 'Mets pitching', coach Mel Harder were signed as coaches to assist Kennedy. Kennedy got no raise, and he was philosophical about it. "You can't pay more money without more people in ...the park," .he said. - ....... The Cubs in his first two seasons as head man of the voluminous coaching staff, which. at times reached as many as 14, finished seventh and eighth with records of 82^80 and 76-86. Each season they were 17 games behind the pen- ant winner. Acquisition of Dark as coach was hailed by Kennedy and Wrigley, and Dark said he was "happy" to be back with the team for which he played third base in 1958 and 1959. Earlier he was an infielder for both Boston and New York. Kennedy revealed that he and Cubs General Manager John Holland had talked to Dark about joining the coaching staff at the World Series, but Dark held off in order to- seek another managerial job. Kennedy said that Harder would be the pitching .coach, a job he held with Cleveland from 1949 through 1963 before he joined the Mets, and that the j fourth coach with the Cubs would be Rube Walker. Three members of the Cubs coaching staff had left since the end of the season. Although Barr wasn't aware of it when he announced his "final 12", he may still have one or two more cuts to be made. New school superintendent Vincent Guenther arrives here Nov. 23 and with him he brings several sons whose has-, ketball ability is unknown, but one of them is of unquestioned ability in' football and track and should he. go out for bas^ ketball on his transfer, it might make another cut necessary. Being Fair To Ail Barr might have kept one or two of the boys around for further looks, but three of the four who failed to make the final cut have been out since Oct. 1, the other just reporting last Saturday, after ending football season Friday night. To h a v e kept them out, practicing one and two times daily, would not have been fair to either them or their parents who would then be looking forward t o watching them in Sectional play, so it was better Barr felt, for everyone concerned, including those left on the squad, to make the cut at the present time. From now on, he can concentrate on those with whom he'll be going for Tipton's first Sectional since' 1948. The Varsity We hope- this afternoon to pick up a full roster of the Blue Devil varsity,, listing heights and weights, but for the time being we can at least name the boys who Barr chose to floor for last night's "Open House" scrimmage. They are comprised of 11 seniors and one junior, which caused one wag to remark "I'm going to buy two season tickets this year because I won't want any next year with only one player back." The junior is Jimmy Harmon, a good all afound competitor who Barr expects to be his playmaker next season. The seniors are letter winners Bill Moore, Donnie Curnutt, Danny Crouch, Lex Boyd, Keith Smith, Gary Meyers and Dave Quigley from last year's Tipton team and Jerry Carter and Jim Hannah from last year's Jefferson Township team, plus Ron' Long -and Bill Elliott, strong- bodied boys who played B-team ball for Tipton last season. Of those cut, Barr said all of them could have made the team most other seasons at Tipton and could also have made it at many other schools this year, but he feels he has such an above average group this year - at least as far as depth or reserve strength is concerned, that it made it doubly difficult for all the boys to make the varsity. Seven of the players go six feet or better and six reach' the 6'2" mark or over. And of the shorter boys, all of them posses the . one ingredient which, next to footwork, Barr probably admires most, good, solid bodies. In announcing his varsity last night, Barr said, "I had to-make a choice and I went with the boys with bodies." Get Tickets Friday Now we're down to the final phase of the pre-season wait- cut, the sale of season tickets which will be held Friday evening at the high school. The doors to the main entrance of the high school will open at 6 p. m. and fans will walk from (Continued from page 6) QSL CARDS $2.50 per 100 $10.00 per 500 EYEBALL CARDS $1.50 per 100 $6.35 per 500 CHOICE OF Color of Ink Color of Paper BLACK BLUE BROWN GREEN RED WHITE WITH ENAMEL FINISH BUFF BLUE RIPPLE FINISH CRAY With One Week Service Bring Y«ur Own • Mens In Ami We Will Fix You Up • 221 EAST JAFFERSON <A\ m h\l ',.'»;',.'•> '.At i .'t !„\f M, "*v|MV VJM1 '•A.J.v^l MJ Hf > \«
