OHS Still Unbeaten In EKL; Argentine Ain't Cyclones Alone On Top Of Pile By CONRAD DOWNING If you need some helpful hints on how to cook up a first place berth in a hot basketball race, just ask H. K. Stevens for his recipe. Last night, the Cyclones stewed the Argentine Mustangs in a battle for East Kansas League supremacy, 58-40, on the Mustang's home floor. Stevens' answer would be a lot of sauce, such as Roy Dunn, plus a bit of seasoned veteran, Harry Morton, two tough customers in Jim Lewis and Eddie Davidson and just that right shade of green as in Ronnie Mendell, sophomore guard. All that adds up to protection and a belting for challengers. The big Red placed its perfect league mark 3-0, on the line against Argentine and picked up its fourth EKL win without a loss, dropping the Mustangs into second place with a 3-1 mark. Roy Dunn turned in a stellar performance as he tossed in 21 points, his best effort of the season. Dunn kept the Mustangs off balance with his favorite skyscraping set shots that dropped out of nowhere and some flashy side-arm layups that mystified the taller inside men. The Cyclones' dominance in almost all areas set the stage for one of the best rebounding performances from Jim Lewis who garnered 10 to go with Harry Morton's 11 rebound blast and 16- .point shooting. Ronnie Mendel! • rounded out the double figure .scoring as he bucketed 12, while teammate Eddie Davidson connected for C points. ; It looked like an oldfashioned Ottawa shindig as the Red moved out to a gaping 12-4 lead in the : opening frame on the strength :of Morton, Mendell and Dunn. •With 2:20 left in the first, Richard Mabiori scored his second basket of the quarter to put Argentine closer, but Harry Morton turned in a 3-point play for a 15-6 advantage. : Argentine came back in the first minutes of the second frame •to score for a 15-£ count, but the Cyclones lived up to their name • and swished 13 straight points before the Mustangs could recover. :Every man in the Cyclone lineup 'broke into the scoring column, ;but Dunn put the biggest dent 'tato it with a pair of 2-pointers. •fly the end of the first half, the '.visitors held a 30-18 margin. : Morton drew three fouls early -in the bout, and it looked as •though he might prove ineffective :on defense. But in the third frame, -he tagged the boards for three "critical rebounds and one bas- ; "ket. Morton held the dubious ; honor of being the best guarded i center in the game as he was : held from getting his easy jumpier away In t!ic first half, he con- •nected on 5 of 7 attempts from •the field. i Third frame action featured ^steals by nimble-fingered Eddie Davidson ».vho took the ball at half court at one point and drib- bed full speed down the middle ;and fed lion Mendell who drop- •ped in an easy layup. Davidson 'made four steals during the evening. • Going into the final quarter, Nicklaus Fails To Qualify SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-Money winnings strings snapped for two of golf's biggest names—Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus — within a week as the latter failed to qualify for today's third round of the $50,000 San Francisco International Open tournament. Palmer, the leading money winner, saw his in-the-money streak ended at 47 tourneys when he was disqualified in the Bing Crosby tournament last Sunday. U.S. Open champion Nicklaus, who won more than $100,000 overall as a rookie pro last year, snapped his PGA tournament money streak at 28 Friday when his 149 for two rounds was one stroke too many to qualify for the final two rounds. This leaves Sam Snead, who is 50 years old and has won money in his last 50 tournaments, far in front of the field. But Sam plays in only about a dozen tournaments on the PGA tour and isn't on the current West Coast swing. the Cyclones held a booming 4629 margin. Roy Dunn took some of the pressure off the number two league scorer, Morton, with some sweeping layups to account for 7 points in the final stanza. However, it was Argentine's Jim Doyle who stole the show as well as the roundball, getting 4 steals during the final quarter and converting two for baskets. The Horses were playing catchup all evening, and the final frame was no exception. Coach Stwens was elated with his club's performance. He summed up thpir spirit with: "We came to play and played." In a serious vein, Stevens praised his boys. "The kids did a real good job. This was an important game, but we've just started. This coming weekend, we've got Bonner Springs at Bonner and then Rosedale at Ottawa on the following night." Of the Mustangs, who were the ninth victim of the Cyclones this year, Stevens felt "this wasn't their best game. But, Dunn played his finest game of the year. They put the press on us and we were confused but we came back to win." Ottawa canned 22 of 50 shots for a 44 percent average while the Mustangs hit 18 of 53 shots for 31 percent. The Cyclones converted 14 of 23 charities, but Argentine hit only 4 of 11. In the rebound department. Ottawa held a 35-27 edge over the Mustangs.

Young Pros Out Front SAN FRANCSCO (AP)-A pair of hard-driving young pros—for mer amateur teammates at the University of Houston—led a pack of the world's finest tournaenl veterans into the third round of the San Francisco Open Saturday. Chunky 24-year-old Jacky Cupit, from Longview, Tex., jumped into a one-stroke lead over his ex- teammate Phil Rodgers, the ex Marine from La Jolla, Calif. The exhuberant Cupit tacked a one-under second round 70 to his initial 67 for 137, to edge the determined Rodgers by a scant stroke at the midway point in the 72-hole event. Billy Casper, last week's Crosby Tournament winner at Pebble Beach; seasoned Bob Rosburg, Art Wall, Jack Burke, Charlie Sifford and Miller Barber were in a tight bunch at 139. OTTAWA BOWL 41SV 2 N.

A balanced attack showed the promise the Ottawans had, as Dale Spears connected for 7 points; Ron Loyd and Scott Killough 6; Ron Boyer 5; Dale Dietrich 3, and Morris Bennett 2. Ottawa stayed close until the half, trailing 6-5 in the first frame and 20-15 at halftime. Thomas and Davis were top scorers for Argentine with 6 points each in the opening half. Ottawa relied on Scott Killough to provide the punch as he hit 4 points. Last half action was even as the Reds trailed 30-24 in the third and lost the game 34-29. Behind the 11 and 10-point efforts of Madison Stein and Dean Barr, the Ottawa 7th and 8th grade Whirlwinds made off with the prize as they toppled Argen- time, 36-11, in a rout of the first degree. Stein was tops on the boards and from the field as he rocketed the home team with 9 points in the first half while mate Barr connected for 6 to start the runaway by the halftime, 23-4. Things slowed down in the third period as Stein fired, in one basket to keep the opposition honest to boost the lead to 28-10. Dennis Wieneke took the appropriate measures in the last stanza as he reached out and bagged two baskets t» give Ottawa the 36-11 victory. A stout defense and some good ball-hawking caused the Argentine quintet to make many mistakes which were captah'zed on by the visitors.

Main CH 2-3376 Would Dress A's In Gold And Green KANSAS CITY (AP) - Charles 0. Finley wants the American League to change its rules so his Kansas City Athletics can wear colorful green and gold uniforms for home games and white uniforms on the road. Under present rules, home teams have to wear white uniforms and some other color — usually a drab gray—on the road. Football and basketball teams have followed the home color custom for years, and Finley pointed out that the National Hockey League adopted that plan two weeks ago. Finley said his request goes before the league's rules committee Saturday. If he can't get the rule changed for the whole season, at least he'd like permission to let the A's sport their new colors at home on opening day. As for the umpires' uniforms, he thinks black is all right for the umpire at home plate, "but why not let those on the bases dress in some color that puts zip and color in the entertainment?" * * Twisters TwistThe Mustangs Coach J. W. Emerson's Twister! looked the part of that scourge of the Kansas prairies as they whipped up a 30-32 victory over the hometown Argentine Mustangs in a junior varsity contest last night. Torrid shooting percentages were a specialty of the house as the Reds from Ottawa clipped off a 50 per cent team average with 18 of 36 shots from the fied. Doug Schultz and Jerry Turley paced the Twisters with 12 and 10 points, respectively. Schultz potted 5 of 8 shots while mate Turley was accounting for 4 of 6 attempts from the field. Terry Davis and Earle Doman hit 6 points each while Daryl Jameson bucketed 4 tallies. Loren Shofnef continued his hot pace with 8 counters on 3 of 6 goal shooting. Neither club could take the advantage in the first as the score was 7-all by the end of the frame. By the middle of the second quarter, the home club came from behind to tie the bout at 14-14 but a hot display from Earle Doman for 4 quick points helped edge the Twister to an uneasy halftime advantage, 20-18. After the half, Terry Davis, Doman and Turley bombed the Mustangs for a 27-18 margin before the Horses could counter with a free throw. Terry Davis dropped in a basket and then turned in one of the outstanding plays of the night. As Argentine brought the ball across the time line, Davis slipped inside the guard, eased the ball down court in a mad dash for a layup and succeeded in « backbreaking bucket, followed by Doug Schultz's long jumpshot to run up to a 35-19 score. By the end of the period, Ottawa led 3723. Last quarter action was almost all Schultz as he waged war for the first 7 points scored by the Reds to lead the scorers to a 50-32 romp of the Argentine "B" team.
