Panthers, Indians In Finals It's the Williamsburg Panthers versus the Pomona Indians in the "A" and "B" championship finals of the Franklin County League basketball tournament. That's the way it was predicted, but for awhile last night it looked as though it wasn't going to be that way in the "A" division. The Lane Lions gave the crowd COMBINATION MAN — L. C. Haughn is superintendent, principal and basketball coach at Quenemo. Since graduation from Ottawa University in 1936, Haughn-coached small high school teams have won more games than you could shake a stick at. (Herald Photo) Principal, Superintendent And Quite A Cage Coach "Greatest," Says Clay Of Himself PITTSBURGH (AP) - Chirping "I'm the greatest" after easily disposing of Charley Powell in the round he called, irrepressible Cassius Clay offered to fight two boxers in one night "and get it over with." Clay, the sport's 21-year-old prognosticating poet, referred Thursday night to his next heavyweight fight with Doug Jones and a possible rematch after that with Billy Daniels. He had just finished playing punching bag with Powell's head by knocking him out at 2 minutes, 4 seconds of the third round and was chattering incessantly. The victory was his 17th straight without a loss and his 14th by knockout. "Jones must fall in six," Cassius predicted about his March 13 fight in New York's Madison Square Garden. "Daniels must fall in two. I'd like to fight Daniels and Jones in one night and get it over with." Clay's ambition is to become the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history by beating Sonny Liston by next November. By A. I. VAN CLEAVE To the little children in the hall, he's a rather nice Mr. Haughn and they go out of their way to speak to him. To the teachers, he's the boss and a good one. To some Kansas high school basketball referees, he's an occasional floorside heckler. This is L. C. Haughn, school superintendent, grade school principal and high school basketball coach at Quenemo. Since graduation from Ottawa University in 1936, Haughn has cast his lot, interest, talent and energy with the small Kansas high school. His teams have won more basketball games than he can readily count. There are people at Strawn and Formosa who must recall the years when Haughn guided teams into state tournaments. These people have only their memories and went to the state tournament twice. Here it was that he had only six boys on his team during one period and they won 28 games n a row. His Formosa teams won 116, lost 25 and placed third in the state one year. His teams at Strawn won 77, lost 4 and went to the state meet twice. It was at Strawn where Haughn and his boys almost now—they no schools. longer have high They remember him at Quincy where he went after graduation from OU, and at Clements. They no longer have high schools either. Haughn also is without a high school alma mater. He was graduated in 1932 from Rantoul High in Franklin County, a school that closed after the 1961-G2 year. Haughn played on the only Rantoul team that ever won the Franklin County tournament. He didn't make the basketball team at OU but lettered in tennis. Haughn coached and taught one year at Quincy, four at Clements, three at Olivet, three at Strawn, six at Formosa, two at Colony, three a( Redding and is in his fifth year at Quenemo. He held administrative jobs at some of the schools. His Olivet teams won 73, lost 7 BATTERY WEAK? Install A NEW AUTO-LITE STA-FUL or 23 Under Par At San Francisco SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-A traffic jam of 23 par busting pros led by Pennsylvanian Art Wall and Texas youngster Jacky Cupit had turned the 50,000 San Francisco open into a wide open affair over Harding Park's bumpy greens as they went into the second round today. Wall, 39, eagled his final hole to come in with a big smile as he and Cupit, 24, from Longview in the East Texas oil fields, took advantage of bright, sunny weather to shoot pace setting 67s, four under par. Cupit touched up his first round card with four birdies. Only one stroke back of the leaders at 68 were Charlie Sif- foro, Phil Rodgers, Bobby Nichols, Dick Mayer and a young University of Texas graduate, Terry Dill. Grouped at 69 for the first of four rounds in this 72-hole tourney were Bud Holscher, Wes Ellis, Jr., George Knudson, Gardner Dickinson, Jr., Miller Barber Buster Cupit (brother of Jacky), last week's Crosby winner Billy Casper and Jack Bissegger. U. S. Open titlist Jack Nickiaus came up with a painful hip which impeded his hitting. He took a 76. South African Gary Player flew into San Francisco at 3 a.m. Thursday, only hours before teeing off, and shot a so-so 74. He said he was just plain travel weary. Last year's winner, Gene Littler, toured Harding in a one under 70. made Life magazine. Focusing on the small high school and its caliber of basketball, Life sent a man to Strawn. He shot some pictures around the school and followed the team to the state tournament. The championship was to be the crown for the magazine spread. But Strawn lost its first game, after leading 18-2 after the first quarter, and the pictures never were published. Redding under Haughn won 56. lost 22 and went to the state tournament once. Haughn didn't coach the first two years he was at Quenemo. The team here, under Devine Montoya, now football coach and assistant basketball coach, won the state Class BB title in 1960 Despite his heckling, Haughn is sympathetic with the basketball referee. "It's hard to officiate now, because of the crowd and the speed," he said. He believes the game should be returned to the one-official stage. "As it is," he said, "one official will wait to see if the other will call something until it's too late to call it." Haughn has come along through the small high schools to a role and a school that obviously give him great satisfaction. Quenemo has a 3-year-old grade and high school building that is beautiful inside and out. It offers a va- Top Scorer Practices At Night NEW YORK (AP)-The nation's No. 1 major college basketball scorer is so dedicated to the sport that he practices by moonlight in the dead of night during summer vacation. Nick Werkman of Seton Hall University, who tops the country with a 32.8 per game average, talked about his practicing moonlighting today a few hours before the Seton Hall-Boston College game at South Orange, N.J. "I like to practice every chance I get," Werkman said, "so when I'm home in Trenton during the summer and it's a nice night my brothers and I usually go over to the school yard for a shooting ses- GRANT EXTRA DUTY Battery We Feature the "Always Fresh" Dry Batteries to fit All Cars, Trucks and Tractors.

There are no games tonight, and the tournament will end Saturday night with the "B" championship game at 6:30, "A" consolation at 7:45 and the "A" championship game at 9. Mike Kuder and Jim Wylie, both juniors, sparkled as Coach Clayton True's Lane Lions kept Williamsburg in hot water until late in the final period, last night. The Panthers led 16 - 10 after the first period and 21-17 at halftime/ Lane tied it at 27-27 with less than two minutes left in the third. Mike scored 17 points and Jim 13 for Lane. Fred Buckley was high for the Panthers with 14. Pomona jumped off to a 17-5 first-quarter lead over Princeton and was never in danger. Roger Shoemaker scored 20 points for the night's best performance to lead Coach Carlin Nalley's Indians. Princeton, which had beaten Richmond Monday night to gain a semi-finals berth, was led by David Rukes and John Sutton, each with 8 points. The Orioles handled the ball well but were cold.on shooting, both from the field and free throw line. The Pomona "B" team beat Princeton, 47-32, last night to win a spot against Williamsburg in the Saturday night finals.
