Cancer Proves Fatal To Red's' Pilot Fred HuPtcftison Dies In Hospital In Florida Today BRADENTON, Fla. (UPI)— Fred Hutchinson, former manger of the Cincinnati Reds, died early today at Manatee Memorial Hospital. He was 45. Hutchinson's physician, Dr. J.H. Beam, said the former manager's wife, Patricia, and his two older sons were at the bedside at the time of death. Hutchinson died at 3:58 a.m. EST after suffering"from chest cancer since the ,first of the year, Beam said. The former manager was unconscious at the time of death, the doctor said. "It was very hard on his family. They had been expecting it, but it was still very hard," Beam said. » Hutchinson had been in a semi-coma for the past week, according to the doctor. "He said very little to me or to anyone else. "He was a great guy. It is too bad," Beam said. i Hutchinson was put on the critical list Wednesday after having what hospital authorities described as "a bad day." He was re-admitted to the hospital here Monday for the second time in the past two weeks. Hutchinson was released from the hospital last Saturday after a week-long stay in which he showed steady improvement. But after a weekend at home, he was hospitalized again Mon• day in "poor" condition and took a turn for the worse Wednesday. Doctors discovered Hutchinson had chest cancer last December. After guiding the Reds through most of the season, Hutchinson resigned as manager Oet. 19. Hutchinson had the kind of baseball career every player dreams of. He broke into pro ball at 18 and promptly became the prime target of every scout in the country by winning 25 games and losing only seven for Seattle of the Pacific Coast League his first year out. Detroit landed him in 1939 by turning over §50,000 plus five players to the Seattle club. As a pitcher the curly haired Hutch never rivaled either Bob Feller or teammate . Hal Newhouser, but. he ,> won his share of the so-called big ones and wound up with a total of 95 victories against 71 losses. He spent his entire' playing career with the Tigers and showed such tremendous competitive spirit that no one was really surprised when they named him manager to succeed Red Rplfe on July 5, 1952. Took Over Reins He took over the club in eighth place and that's where the Tigers finished that year. Hutchinson boosted them two notches to' sixth the following year, then to fifth in 1954. A man of strong convictions, Hutchinson resigned as Detroit manager on Sept. 30,. 1954, because club directors rejected his demand for a two-year contract. Typically, Hutch had no criticism of the Detroit front office at the time. Pressed for the reason he quit, he merely said: "It's personal." Prodded further, Hutchins o n said he left Detroit because "I wouldn't compromise my principles." He never did during his entire 26 years in baseball. Hutchinson had no trouble whatsoever gaining another job. Seattle snapped him up as a manager in 1955 and he promptly led the club to a pennant. That showing earned him another major league managerial chance with- the St Louis Cardinals in 1956. Frank Lane, Cardinal general manager at the time, explained Hutch's selection this way: Patient With Players "He gets a little red­ necked like I do, but he's patient with kids and is the kind of manager I feel will lead the Cardinals' young players to a higher'position." Hutchinson did exactly that, taking over a club that finished seventh the year before and guiding. it to a fourth place berth in 1956. The Cards did even better the following year, winding up second, but they dropped to fifth in 1958 and Hutchinson was let'out.- Back he went to Seattle, his home-town as combination field manager and general manager •but he didn't remain in the minors long. Halfway through the 1959 season, he was summoned to Cincinnati to replace Mayo Smith as manager and two years later he led the Reds to their first National League pennant in 21 years. Probably the best appraisal of Hutchinson as a manager came from one Cincinnati veteran who served under him. "If you can't play for Hutch," he said, "you can't play for anyone. He's tough, but he's fair." National Basketball Association By United Press International Eastern Division W. L. Pet.

(UPI)—Kelso ruled the turf today as American champion for the fifth consecutive year and one of the great Thoroughbreds of all time after his brilliant victory Wednesday in the $150,000 Washington, D.C., International. Year end ballots have not been collected and tabulated as yet and Kelso's unprecedented status as "horse of the year" five times in a row is "unoffi : When you're looking-for a full-size, car (a Ford/Ctievyrtype car), but you want it hot and handsome and-at a lower price—you haven't seen anything till you've seen Coronet. Any way you look at it, Coronet's the most for the least...with optional power to 426cubic-inches. With room,ride and style. With a price that's lower by a long shot—model for model—than every full-size Ford and Chevy in the book. Coronet! It's the sellingest Dodge, because just about everyone who looks—buys. Have you seen Coronet, yet? CLYDE OVERDORF MOTORS Inc. rial." But so was his victory in the International after he charged across the finish line four and one-half lengths ahead of arch rival Gun Bow. Jockey Walter Blum, who rode Gun Bow, claimed a foul against Kelso and for about 10 anxious minutes there was a chance Kelso might be disqualified. That would have put him second as he was in 1961, 1962 and 1963. But the stewards declared the race was truly run and Kelso got his justly earned victory. No Objection The enemy forces did not object for Eddie Neloy, who trains Gun Bow, said, "John Gaines, Harry Alberts (owners) and myself saw the movies of the race and while Kelso did come over we feel that the stewards were justified in leaving the result as it was." ,; Kelso's race was so brilliant that thoughts of retiring him immediately probably have changed. Owner Mrs. Richard C. DuPont, who set two objectives for Kelso this year at the start of the season, said, "I can't say anything definite about whether he'll run again. I haven't decided. But his will probably be his last year of racing. -Yes, his was the - most exciting of Kelso's races. You know how much we wanted to win this one." ! Mrs. DuPont and trainer Carl Hanford are determined not to keep Kelso in training too long. He is a gelding and thus has no future as a stallion. Looked Finished For a while this year it looked as though Kelso was through — that age finally had caught up with the 7-year-old. In his first seven races he had Celtics Win 11fh In Row Within a week the Boston Celtics will know? if this is the year they finally set a record for victories at the beginning of a season] The world champions always seem to be in midseason form from the opening bell and this year is no exception. The Celts ran their unbeaten 11- Wednesday night with a one­ sided 110-84 triumph over San Francisco. The league record for victories at the start of a season is 15 set by the Washington Capitols in 1948. Boston ran off 14 in a .row 10; years later. Wednesday night the Celtics launched a schedule of six 'games in eight days. Their 15th game comes up next Tuesday in Baltimore and the possible record breaker one night later at home against the Hawks. A new set of heroes paved the way for Wednesday night's bombing of the Warriors. Larry Siegfried led the Boston scoring with 20 points and Willie Naulls added 18. Bill Russell contributed 16 points but was of greater value snaring 24 rebounds.and holding Wilt Chamberlain to 24 points. In other games, Cincinnati nipped St. Louis, 118-116; and Philadelphia downed Baltimore, 123-114. The Royals remained Boston's closest pursuer, five games back, as Wayne Embry and Jack Twyman combined for 18 points in a row in the final period. Jerry Lucas was the high point man for Cincy with 26 but St. Louis' Bob Pettit took overall honors with 32. Philadelphia's Hal Greer rang up 36 points, including 14 without a miss from the foul line, as the 76'ers evened their record at 5-5. Walt Bellamy topped the Bullets' scorers with 28 while Gus Johnson and Bailey Howell added 26 and 20, respectively. Sports Parade won only two overnight purses. Then he won the Aqueduct Handicap, was second by a nose to Gun Bow in the Woodward Stakes, and won the Jockey Club Gold Cup for the fifth time. * Only the International was left- and Laurel officials mustered seven other horses from seven countries, including Gun Bow, to run against him in the mile and one-half race. Kelso responded by running the fastest mile and one-half ever clocked in America—2(23 4-5. The time topped the American grass record of 2:24 2-5 set by Pa.rdo at Santa Anita on Feb. 27, 1963 and even was faster than Gallant Man's time of 2:26 3-5 in the 1957 Belmont Stakes. Kelso paid $4.40, $2.40 and $2.40 in winning for the 36th time in 56 races. Gun Bow paid $2.60 and $2.20 while Aniline of Russia which finished nine lengths behind Gun Bow, paid $3.80. Biscayne of Ireland was fourth, followed by Belle Sicam- bre of Fnnce, Primordial of Venezuela, Veronese of Italy and Ryu F>rel of Japan. (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By MILTON R1CHMAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI)— Pickin' the weekend winners' or keep your eye on the clock—that's what usually decides the ball game. Ever notice when there's only two minutes left and your team is behind by a few points; how time seems to adopt wings and starts to fly? jBut when your team is ahead with only two minutes remaining, time gets down on its hands and knees and seems to crawl.
