THE OTTAWA HERALD Monday, February 4, 1963 Nicklaus, Player ,000 Playoff PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP)Gary Player, the little man in black, came from five strokes behind in the final round of the $50,000 Palm Springs golf classic for a tie—and so today meets Jack Nicklaus in an 18-hole playoff, The money difference is $9,000 to $4,000. Nicklaus went into a one-stroke lead in the second round, then maintained a five-stroke lead on the third and fourth rounds of the marathon 90-hole tournament. But he said someone, like the witches in Macbeth, warned him: "Jack may lead the pack but watch out for the man in black." Player, of South Africa, usually wears black from head to toe. The two have met head-on only once before—late last summer in the "world series of golf." Nicklaus won by five strokes. Both finished the tournament here with 345 totals. Nicklaus, last to finish, needed an eagle to win on the 482-yard, par-5 18th. His 30-foot putt missed the cup by inches. He settled for a birdie four, same as Player. Arnold Palmer, the other member of golfing's Big Three, made one of his famous finishes with a final 67 for 349 to get himself $2,000 and a tie for fifth place. Ahead of him at 346 was Tommy Bolt, whose iron play was as deadly as most pro putting. Bolt's final-round 66 won him third-place money of $3,000. In fourth place, tied at 347, Gene Littler, who shot a last-day round of 64, and Gardner Dickinson, who had a final 68. Ltittler's 64 was the best individual round of the tournament. The fourth-place money was worth $2,450. * * * PALM SPRINGS, Calif.

Playoff today. Vaulters Gunning For 17-Foot Mark By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer A fantastic 17-foot pole vault suddenly has become a possibility and may be achieved in the near future, perhaps this month. Pentti Nikula, a wiry Finn who soared a startling 16 feet 8% inches over the weekend, hopes to make the 17-foot flight in the U.S. National AAU championships in New York's Madison Square Garden Feb. 23. There he will compete against about a half dozen other athletes who have bettered the once seemingly unconquerable 16-foot barrier. Among them is Dave Tork, Charleston, W. Va., who cleared 16-2'/4 in Toronto less than two weeks ago, vowed that 17 feet could be done and said he thought he was the man to do it. Nikula, who holds the listed world record at 16-2% is gunning for 17 feet. "It came as no surprise to me," the vaulting wizard said after his 16-8% leap Saturday in an indoor meet Pajulahti, Finland, an obscure resort village. "I am in top shape and will shoot for 17 feet next time." The performance came as a warm-up for Pentti who plans to leave Feb. 20 for several U.S. meets, with the AAU championship No. 1. His vault was 554 inches higher than any other man has ever vaulted, but will not be submitted Dick Peters Equipment Consultant Dick Peters, football coach and ahtletic director at Ottawa University, has been named to the football advisory staff of A. G. Spalding & Bros., manufacturers of athletic goods, it was announced today. Coach Peters will act as consultant in the development and improvement of football protective equipment. In taking his place on the committee he becomes one of 19 college and professional coaches of the nation now serving the firm in that capacity. for a world record since it was accomplished indoors. Indoor performances are not recognized as official records by the International Track and Field Federation. Twisters Win 4th Straight Ottawa's junior varsity put on a terrific first quarter defense to stiffle Rosedale's "B" squad, 55-39, Saturday. The Reds didn't allow the Cats a field goal in 15 shots during the opening frame. The Ottawans bounced off to a 10-4 early first period lead. Jerry Turley, an up-and-coming junior prospect, ripped in two fielders in the first to pace the quarter, while Daryl Jameson chucked in 5 points. In the second stanza the Cats staged a comeback and worked the count even at 18-18 on the strength of Dick George's two free throws with 2:03 left in the first half. Daryl Jameson came back in the final minute for a field goal and a free throw to trip ahead 21-18. Doug Schultz closed out the half with a last second jump shot and a 23-18 halftime margin for Ottawa. The Cats edged to within 3 points at 24-21 on Frank Parker's frees but the Reds pulled away behind Schultz s bucket and Turley's charity toss. By the end of the third period, Ottawa held a 33-29 lead. A red-hot final period cooled the tall-tough Cats, as Schultz pumped two free throws and a goal through to kick off the quarter, 37-29. Terry Davis and David Spears retaliated against Parker's bucket to throw the Otta- wans into a predominate 43-31 edge. Gary Mavity, Steve Queen, David Spears and Loren Shofner cleaned up the remaining time with a barrage of points to give Ottawa a 55-39 victory. This was the fourth victory in a row for the Twisters and gave them an 8-3 season record. To date the present record is the best in several seasons.

By CONRAD DOWNING A tremendous 8 for 8 from the field at the outset of the first quarter stood the Ottawa Cyclones in good stead as they rolled to their sixth straight East Kansas League victory, downing the Rosedale Wildcats, 51-44, Saturday night on the home hardwoods. The cyclones parlayed their first 8 shots into an unbeatable early 17-8 lead and ended the first frame 21-10. Coming into the contest, Ottawa had a string of six victories and a perfect league mark of 5-0. Rosedale never recovered from the Cyclones' initial blast which started with a pair of layups by Ronnie Mendell and Jim Lewis. Roy Dunn followed with a 25- footer for a 6-0 lead. Dunn, who checked in with 5 of 7 shots in the first period, paced the 21- point opener with 3 straight baskets interrupted only by Harry Morton's soft jump shot. Second quarter action saw a get - tough • policy by Coach Eldon Milburn's Wildcats. Led by Phil LaHue, the Cats battled back during the first six minutes to trail 24-21 before Dunn dropped a sky bomb with 2:07 left. As the period passed, Lewis bucketed two frees and Mendell a basket for a 29-21 margin. The halftime score moved up to a 31-23 advantage for OHS. Balance seems to be the key factor for H. K. Stevens' band as Eddie Davidson opened the third canto with a basket and two charities. Morton, usually the big scorer for Ottawa, slipped to the side as his compatriots took over. Mendell, Dunn and Davidson put through 11 points against 10 for the Wildcats. Ottawa led, 42-33, at the end of three periods. Morton dented the hoop for a goal to give Ottawa a 10-point [spread, 43-33, to open the final eight minutes. Mendell kept the Red out in front with 6 points and Dunn's fielder capped the Cy- cones scoring. With the score, 51-38, and 1:16 left to play, Eugene Jackson and Phil LaHue dumped in 6 counters but it was too late as they lost 51-44. Ottawa tossed up 11 less shots but hit 18 of 47 for a 38.2 percentage. Rosedale canned 18 of 58 for 31 per cent. The Cats surprisingly controlled the boards, 41-32, and hit 8 of 13 free throws, whereas ask for MONEY^MAI Me No need to leave home or work when you want money!

Dale Spears paced the frosh with 13 points but he couldn't find- the range during the opening period when the visitors jumped to a 10-1 lead before Scott Killough pumped in a basket for a 10-3 deficit. Ron Lloyd tossed in a free to trail the greenclads, 10-4, at the end of the opening stanza. Second quarter action picked up as Dale Dietrich slipped in a free throw, followed by Killough's second fielder to trail 10-7. By the end of the frame, Dietrich hit two more charities and Spears connected for 4 points to move closer at the half, 17-13. Ronnie Lloyd played it tough to start the third as he pivoted in a goal, followed by Dale Dietrich's fourth free throw to follow by 1, 17-16. Lloyd was fouled seconds later and knotted the count for the first time at 17-17. The score was tied at 19-19, 21-21, 2323, and finally 25-25 at the end of the third canto. Ottawa blasted off with a 2926 margin early in the fourth. However Steve Weidner, top Rosedale scorer with 19 points, tied the count at 29-29, and was fouled the push ahead 30-29. Dale Spears accounted for the final OJHS score at 31-30 before the visitors broke the game wide open in the last two minutes for a 37-31 victory. Coach Harvey Drake's lanky marauders now stand at 4-4 in competition. A pesky 7th and 8th grade Whirlwind team pigeon • holed the Rosedale five, after trailing in the opening quarter, in a hard fought rugged battle. Rosedale jumped off to a 5-0 lead but Madison Stein pumped in 3 points along with Dean Barr and Alan Buck's fielders to pull ahead 6-5. A splurge by the visitors left the Whirlwinds trailing 9-6 at the end of the opening frame. A series of free throws opened a lead for the Whirlwinds as Barr and Buck combined for a 10-9 margin. Dennis Weineke set up the tie breaking basket on a steal and a driving layup to lead 129. Weineke took over the scoring toward the latter part of the first half as he hit a pair of frees followed by Dean Barr's 4 points to edge to an 18-12 halftime score. Third period action picked up for the Reds as Weineke and Danny Seymour bucketed 3 points for a 21-12 advantage. The Rose- For Insurance On dwellings, household goods. buildings and automobuV SM Dean Berlin, Agent 109 E Second Phone CH 2-2804 dalians made a move in the frame and got within 5 points at 25-20 but Dean Barr took command with a pair, of free shots and t 2-second field goal to go ahead, 29-22, at the buzzer. Barr, who hit 17 big points in the contest, opened with both bar* rels going down the stretch with 4 counters, aided by Madison Stein's basket and Weineke's two charities for a 37-28 victory. Ottawa's center, Madison Stein, was hampered by a bad leg but garnered 8 big rebounds followed by Alan Buck's 7. Barr had a perfect afternoon from the free throw line with 7 of 7 M did Weineke with 4 of 4. The Whirlwinds hit 10 of 21 shots while the Rosedale five hit 12 of 33.
