(Ottawa High Photo) Olathe Challenge OHS Win Streak The unpredictable Olathe Eagles will come a-calling this Friday night in an effort to humiliate the East Kansas League leaders, the Ottawa Cyclones, victorious in their last 7 ball games. Coach Ralph Dennis, mild-mannered Olathe mentor, will bring a Bird crew to Ottawa that turned back the Rosedale Wildcats in their last outing, 62-58, to prime for the Cyclone engagement. The Eagles outrebounded the Wildcats, 20-19, while Al Robinson topped all board sweepers with 13 grabs. Doug Knop followed with 5. Knop, Olathe's sophomore flash, turned in the top scoring performance last week as he belt- ed home 15 points. Knop hit an even 50 per cent of his shots from the field on 5 of 10 tries. He was followed by Stan Sommers who had his best scoring effort of the season with '12 counters. Sommers cashed in on 5 of 6 shots Robinson, of the Birds back- line three, tops the averages with a 7.1 count on 86 points in 12 ball games. Barry Walters chipped in 6.6 points per bout to rank second with 81. Knop is hitting at 6.0 with 66 points in 11 rounds. Walters has played in only 9 contests for the Eagles. Olathe will carry a 5-7 overall mark into the fracus and a 3-3 league record. Ottawa Coach H. K. Stevens has a full-strength first five, but one of his top reserves, Roger Ferguson, a 6-3 scrapper, is still bothered by an injured knee and may not see action or will only see limited work. Stevens will risk the Cyclones perfect 6-0 EKL record and try to stretch his winning streak to 8 games and better his 11-3 record. With such capable leaders as Morton, Dunn, Mendell, Davidson and Lewis, most teams in the EKL respect the power present. Harry Morton is tops in the overall EKL scoring race as he is still at 16.5 points per game to Bonner Spring's ace Wayne McDonald's 15.9 point average. Game time is at 8 with the B bout taking place at 6:30. Running Or Standing Still. Jutta Has Nice Statistics MONTCLAIR, N.J. (Al>)-The pretty German fraulein is in an unhappy stew—everybody wants to make her "Miss Cheesecake of 1963" and all she wants to be is Jutta Heine, sportswoman. "All the time, there are reporters and photographers around wanting to talk and make pictures," Jutta said, puckering her blonde features into an expression of dismay. "It gives me no time to run." Ask her about her vital statistics and she will quickly say: "My beet time in the 200 meters is 23.3 and in the 100 " No, she is prompted, we mean, you know, 36-34-36, and so forth. "I know," the willowy 22-year- old replies with a sigh of resignation. "It is always the same- people are more interested in how long my legs are than in how fast they run. To me, the only important statistics are my times in the sprints." Any way you want to take them Jutta's statistics are impressive. Tall and leggy, she is 5-feet-10 with the face of a cover girl and none of the physical characteristics normally associated with the female athlete, particularly the track and field star. She is perhaps the second best woman sprinter in the world, giving ground only to Uncle Sam's fabulous Olympic gold medalist. Wilma Rudolph. Jutta (pronounced U-Ta) was second to Wilma in the 200 meter race in the 1960 Olympics at Rome and her aim is to beat the lithe Tennessee bullet hi the Tokyo games next year. "My best distance is the 200," she said. "I have done 23.3 seconds, but I think I can do 23. I hope also to improve my 113 seconds in the 100." Jutta, holder of the highest German athletic award, the Lor- beerblatt, is in the United States as the guest of the Amateur Athletic Union. She is the daughter of a wealthy attorney. Tough Field At Phoenix PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP)-Arnold Palmer, set out today in search of an unprecedented third straight $35,000 Phoenix Open Golf Championship. But fierce competition faced the Palmer who ran away with $5,300 top money by 12 strokes a year ago. None of the five tournaments on the 1963 pro tour has been decided by more than three strokes and a different star has won each weekend. Four golfers already have amassed prize totals exceed ing $10,000. Tops among the contenders seeking to unseat Palmer at the 6,679-yard, par 72 Arizona Country Club Course are Gary Player who has banked $15,302 this winter; Jack Nicklaus, with $11,665; Billy Casper, with $10,483, and Jack Burke Jr., with $9,540. Along with Palmer, who has won $11,80( each has won a '63 tournament A winter heat wave sent thee temperature up to 87 Wednesday on the flat desert course. NEW YORK (AP) - If Commissioner Ford Frick had his way, the major leagues would un- eil the most intriguing and revo- utionary playing schedule in Mseball's long history in 1963. Prick's plan, accepted by the American League but rejected by National League at its summer meeting in Chicago following he second All-Star game, was an interlocking schedule in which all 0 clubs could be seen in every iig league city. The proposed arrangements were veiled in such secrecy that ew authoritative persons will dis- uss it even now, least of all Frick. Under the proposed plan, the •laying schedule would be re- uced from 162 to 157 games, vhich would tend to cut down ravel, eliminate some of the trav- 1 problems and cut out the daylight doubleheaders, the players' ?hief complaint. An American League official, who favored the commissioner's >lan, had this to say: "It's too bad the National .league killed it. The commissioner showed far-sightedness and progressive thinking. I think the nterlocking schedule idea is inevitable. It offers all of the stars He'll Play 1,000 Changes Robinson's Mind By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Like Popeye, Frank Robinson thrives on the green stuff. For the muscular sailor the magic ingredient is spinach. For the muscular baseball player it all boils down to cabbage. Robinson was loaded down with cabbage today—the kind with pictures of presidents on it—after officially ending all talk of quitting baseball Wednesday by signing his 1963 contract with the Cincinnati Reds for an estimated $60,000. If .the guess on Robinson's salary figure is correct, he's the highest paid player in Cincinnati history. Also, one of the fastest to change his mind about an early retirement. Less than five months ago, Robinson wound up the season with the National League's second highest batting average, .342, JUK| the startling announcement Out he was quitting because of the "physical beating I've been taking in baseball," tiobinson said he was tired of I being hit by pitches, that his back and that he was sore from sliding into bases. He said money was not a factor, but later left the door ajar with the statement that he could be induced to return for a salary in the neighborhood of $80,000. Apparently, the 27 - year - old right-handed swinging outfielder got a step half way up, a $20,000 boost over his $40,000 check for 1962 when he hit 39 home runs and drove in 136 tallies. Washington outfielder Jimmy Piersall said he is not likely to be on hand for the opening of spring training Feb. 26 unless something gives. "All I want is what I have coming to me," said Piersall. "I don't think I deserve a pay cut." Zilly To Coach At Rhode Island KINGSTON, R.I.

The rejected schedule called for each club to play 117 games against teams in its own league 1 and 40 inter-league games. The season would open April 9 and close Sept. 29. The first set of nterleague games would get underway in mid-June and until the end of July all competition would be between teams in rival leagues. During that six week period, every team would play four con- fists with each team in the rival eague, two at home and two on he road. Thus a National League club would play 13 games against earns in its own league and four against teams in the American League. The same would hold true from the American League end.
