THE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, February 15, 1963 Bull" Durham May Give 'Cats Trouble By JIM VAN VALKENBURG Associated Press Sports Writer WICHITA (AP)—A key player for Wichita, which takes aim at Cincinnati's 37-game basketball winning streak here Saturday night, is a little-known senior with the lowest scoring average in the starting line-up. He is Wayne Durham, a 6-foot- 7, 225-pounder from Enid, Okla. His nickname is "Bull," of course. "Durham is my traffic cop out there," says Coach Ralph Miller. "He's smart and knows how to keep them running their patterns. Often he makes the key play in the game. Durham sends Nate Bowman (6-10) Wichita sophomore to the right spots." Miller pointed out that Durham missed the first Tulsa game with an injury and played only a few minutes of the North Texas game. "We lost both of 'em by two points," Miller said. "I think we would have won both with Durham in there." Wichita's other Missouri Valley Conference defeats were at Cincinnati 63-50 and at St. Louis 68-61. Miller's club has a 15-6 record against one of the nation's toughest schedules and would become certain of a bid to the National Invitation Tournament at New York by beating Cincy. Ed Jucker, Cincinnati coach, said: "They'll be waiting for us— they'll be thinking about that buzzer business." He referred to the first meeting of the two teams, when Miller said Jucker punched the timekeeper's buzzer as play was going on, to get the officials to talk to him. But Miller had little to say about the incident. He was concerned about the condition of Leonard Kelley, speedy 6-1 back- liner who hurt his right shoulder in the Drake game here Monday. Kelley is on the doubtful list and Miller plans to start sophomore Dave Leach in his place. Kelley's 12.1 season average is second on the club only to Dave Stallworth's 20.2. "The loss of his speed will hurt our full-court pressing defense and our fast break," Miller said. Ernie Moore, Kelley's backline mate, has an 11.6 average, Bowman 9.8 and Durham 9.2. Cincinnati's top four, all members of last season's NCAA champs, are Ron Bonham 20.8, Tom Thacker 15.9, George Wilson 15.0, and Tony Yates 7.4. The Bearcats led the nation in defense, yet have committed fewer fouls than any other team- rare combination. "We have the balance and manpower to beat them," Miller said, "if we can match their rebounding and defense we can do it." A crowd of 11,000 will be on hand, whooping it up for a repeat of Wichita's 52-51 upset of Cincy last year, which ended a 27-game streak.

JFK Sees Economic Loss Without A Quick Tax Cut By FRANK CORMIER WASHINGTON (AP)-President Kennedy says U.S. economy "will inevitably move into a downturn" —perhaps this year—if Congress doesn't act promptly to cut taxes. Kennedy told his news conference Thursday the congressional battle over tax legislation will be "a hard fight." But he was optimistic about getting an acceptable bill by the end of the session. "We are going to get a bill for a tax reduction which will provide a consensus," Kennedy forecast. "It won't be perhaps the bill we sent up, but I think it will be a good bill." In a special message to Congress Jan. 24, Kennedy proposed a combination of rate cuts and tax revisions that would produce, over the next three years, a net tax reduction of $10.2 billion. Besides renewing and strengthening his plea for action on the tax package, Kennedy made these major points: The United States is doing more than the Europeans to defend Europe and intends to maintain its present combat strength there. However, troops will be withdrawn if they wear out their welcome—though Kennedy sees no sign of that. He definitely plans no economic or political reprisals against President Charles de Gaulle of France who shook the Western alliance by quashing British entry into the European Common Market and by spurning U.S. proposals for a multination nuclear force in Europe. In remarks directed both at his Republican critics at home—specifically Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York—and friendly nations abroad, Kennedy said: "It DICKIES WORK CLOTHES LEE SHELDEN'S Men's Wear is a mistake always to assume that the United States is wrong, and that by being disagreeable to the United States, it is always possible to compel the United States to succumb." He said "our primary mission for the hemisphere this winter" is to work with Latin-American nations to combat Communist subversion, sabotage and political intrigue directed not only from Cuba but from northeastern Brazil and elsewhere. In making his new plug for a tax cut, Kennedy argued that inaction by Congress would mean 'restricted economic growth, higher unemployment" and a bigger-than-forecast deficit, already estimated at $11.9 billion for the fiscal year that begins July 1 He described his tax package as "our plan to prevent a reces- sion this year and the years to come." On other topics, Kennedy: Said the Western allies haven'! decided whether it would be fruitful to resume exploratory talks aimed at a possible Berlin settlement. Expressed full faith in the qualifications of Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr., his choice to be under secretary of commerce. The nom ination has been the target of Republican criticism. "They ques turned the qualifications of his father to be president," said Ken nedy. When reminded that he ques tioned the U.S. image abroad dur ing the 1960 presidential cam paign, said he would want to wai and "get clearer ideas in the nex two years" before deciding, how U.S. prestige has fared since then.

Monaco Lowers Marriage Age MONTE CARLO, Monaca (AP) —Not-so-young lovers in tiny Monaco Thursday were promised a Valentine's Day present: Revision of an old law requiring persons under 30 years of age to get their fathers' permission before marrying. The legislature decided to lower the age to 21 following a complaint by Jean Joseph Marquet, a town councilman who has performed more than 100 civil marriage ceremonies. Marquet was upset because he himself had to ask papa before he got married at the not-so-tender age of 26. Tony Van Leiden has a good question today: 'What does a guy have to do to get high 10 or high 30 on Conrad's Painters bowling team?" Tony had a good night last night with Conrad's in the AMF League at the Royal T. He rolled 202-174-210 for 586. But teammates D. Beiter with 212 and D. Heckman with 588 claimed high 10-30 honors. With Better's 542, H. Conard's 530 and L. Wichman's 476, Conrad's amassed a handsome 2,722 team series and beat Cheney's Markets, 3-1. Heckman's series was the night's best. B. Hull rolled a 586 with a 224 line for Pepsi-Cola which posted a 2,651 team series in beating Ottawa Insulation, 31, in the men's Classic League at the Ottawa Bowl. D. Burgoon rolled a 574 for Litwin's which beat Blue Moon, 3-1, in the AMF session. V. Ferguson led the women bowlers in the Thursday Night Ladies League at the Ottawa Bowl, scoring a 496 for Budge's Hardware, 3-1 winner over Towner's. N.

RedSox Must Master Basic Play BOSTON (AP) - Attention Boson Red Sox players: Your new skipper, Johnny Pescy, feels too many major leaguers don't have a grasp of base- jail fundamentals—especially the )unt. So now you've been warned what is first on the agenda when he Red Sox open spring training at Scottsdale, Ariz. Pesky was asked if players in a major league uniform hadn't already mastered fundamentals to reach the big time. "That's a fine theory," the former Red Sox shortstop and successor to Mike Higgins said. "They are supposed to know the fundamentals. But you'd be sur prised how many major leaguers don't. "When I .was managing in the minors I lost many a night's sleep trying to figure ways of helping young ball players improve. I 'studied charts until my eyes ached. But I always came back to the same answer: Fundamentals.. "So this spring and at various times during the season, the Red Sox are going to be working on fundamentals. "One of the main things I will stress is throwing properly from the outfield and how to make cut off plays and relays." (Note: Pesky was the "goat" of a famed delayed relay from deep short on which Enos Slaughter scored from first on a single for the St. Louis Cardinals, beating the Sox in the deciding game of. the 1946 World Series.) PORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP)—New York Yankee relief ace Marshall Bridges, shot in the leg by • 21-year-old woman in ah Elks Club bar, may be ready to pitch by the opening, day of the baseball season. Dr. George Rahilly, a surgeon and bone specialist, said no surgery was planned for Bridges, still in a Fort Lauderdale hospital, and the pitcher should be able to return to practice in about a month. The pitcher was shot in the left leg Wednesday night by a woman identified by police as Carrie Lee Raysor, as they sat next to each other in the Negro Club. Both are Negro. Miss Raysor. is booked on a charge of aggravated assault. Yankee manager Ralph Houk said there would be no disciplinary action against Bridges. If Bridges can begin working out in a month, he will probably be ready when the Yankees open April 9 against the Kansas City Athletics. At first it was feared lie would miss two months. Dr. Rahilly said the .25 caliber slug chipped a bone and damaged muscles between the ankle and the knee, but said he did not consider it a serious injury. Bridges, 31-year-old father of three from Jackson, Miss., had an 84 record for the Yanks in 52 games last season and played a big part in the pennant drive. Police officers quoted Miss Ray sor as saying Bridges "put his arm around me and pulled me over and I didn't like that kind f mugging. Cora Davis, a barmaid, was quoted by police as saying Bridges "was trying to kiss the woman just before the shooting.'
