2 THE OTTAWA HERALD * Thursday, Feb. 21, 1963 •K ,000 For Mays; Teiry Signs By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer "This Willie Mays, he does everything." And gets rewarded accordingly. San Francisco Manager Al Dark paid the compliment and the National League champion Giants will be paying Mays approximately $100,000 for the 1963 season, a plateau reached before by only Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio and Stan Musial. Mays agreed to terms Wednesday for an estimated increase of $10,000 following a season in which he led the National League in homers with 49 and drove in 141 runs while batting .304. While Mays stepped into the Giants' fold, World Series opponent Ralph Terry—the pitching hero who shut out San Francisco 1-0 in the deciding game of the Series- agreed to terms with the world champion New York Yankees. The 27-year-old right-hander posted a 23-12 record last season and received a $12,000 raise to $35,000. Besides Terry, a host of other pitchers signed, including Roger Craig of the New York Mets, Ray Herbert and Gary Peters of the Chicago White Sox, Carl Willey of Milwaukee, Ernie Broglio and Bobby Shantz of St. Louis, Bob Allen and Wilfred (Sonny) Siebert of Cleveland and Steve Dalkowski of Baltimore. Bowling 580s Tops In Men's League The women's tournament in progress at the Ottawa Bowl limited last night's league action to the Booster group at the Royal T Lanes. There, the Knights of Columbus No. 3 team held on to its top position with a 3-1 win over Colby's Furniture. Top scorers were Mueller with 211 and 586 for K of C No. 1, 4-0 winner over Kitty Clover; Pogue with 213 and 584 for Colby Furniture, and Cecil Wolgast with 581 for Royal T, 4-0 winner over Robertson Motor. The No, 3 Knights have a 27 I /64% record, compared to 23-9 for second place K of C No. 1. Team results and high individual scores in the Booster League follow: Hoy*l T—4 High 10-30 — C.

Dark's reasoning is 'unusual among the general chorus proclaiming the change as either beneficial tc pitchers or making no difference. He told a pre-spring training news conference Wednesday that he thinks National League umpires will not be able to crouch as low as previously since the top of the strike zone is now higher. "It's the way they stand that raises or lowers the strke zone" said Dark. "If they're up higher it may pull the strike zone up. "It'll hurt us if they pull it up, because I like our itchers to keep the ball low. I don't want our pitchers getting up higher." He quickly added that it would hurt other teams as well—"All the good ball clubs I've been on were built around low-ball pitchers," National League umpires tradi tionally crouch lower than their American League counterparts, which, says Dark, explains why the National League strike zone is considered by players to be slightly lower than the American. The higher zone, he believes, will force National League umpires to employ a stance more like American Leaguer*. TOURNAMENT STARS — Among top bowlers in team division women's tournament last night at Ottawa Bowl are (from left) Ruth Mock, Mary Lu Hopkins, Glcnna Lu Whitacre, Naomi Fritts, Ruth Carlson and Nancy Lollar.

Wittenberg Still No. 1 In AP Poll By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Wittenberg University, hopeful of regaining the national small college basketball championship in the National Collegiate Athletic Association post-season tournament, is the No. 1 team in The Associated Press small college poll for the third straight week. The Tigers, with an 18-1 record, are on a 12-game winning streak. They are favored to win the Ohio Athletic Conference championship tourney and thus gain an automatic berth in the NCAA event next month. Their only defeat came in triple overtime at the hands of Eastern Kentucky, a major school. Wittenberg collected 70 points in the weekly voting by the AP panel of eight sports writers and broadcasters, a margin of eight over the runner-up, Southeast Missouri, which has won 19 of 21 games.

(AP) - Bob Kennedy, 17-season veteran of the major leagues, was named head coach of the Chicago Cubs' 12-man coaching staff Wednesday. The appointment was announced by Col. Robert Whitlow, the Cubs' new athletic director. The Chicago-born Kennedy's first managerial assignment came last year when he guided Salt Lake City to second place in the Pacific Coast League.

No Spectators For Basketball PARIS (AP)-Officials of the French Basketball Federation have found a foolproof method of controlling spectators at basketball games. They eliminated 'em. When Charleville beat Bagnolet 74-73 recently, the players, and officials were booed and threatened by an unruly crowd. As a result, the federation ordered Charleville, the home team, to play its next four games in private. Well Wishes For Ailing Rizzuto ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) - Well wishes and light advice are snowballing for hospitalized Phil Rizzuto, whose right hand is bandaged as big as a boxing glove after his encounter with the wrong end of a snow-blowing machine. The former New York Yankee baseball star had his hand mangled when he tried to clear the clogged machine he was using on his front walk. But Rizzuto cheerfully tells his visitors at St. Elizabeth Hospital: "It's better to make a joke out of it. Every time I think of it I want to jump 6 feet in the air." " The 45-year-old former shortstop, who now shares broadcasting duties for the Yankees, said he was using the machine for about the third time, clearing his waJk Tuesday night, when the wet snow and slush clogged it. "Like a meathead, I struck my hand in to clear out the snow. "I didn't think the blades went that far back." The blades of the running machine broke the bones in eight places, and crushed two of his fingers. He won't have normal use of the hand for about a year. 3-Way Tie For First InCIC By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Emporia State turned the CIC basketball campaign into a three- way deadlock by beating league- leading Pittsburg State 71-58 Wednesday night in a wild scramble at Pittsburg. This left Emporia, Pittsburg and Fort Hays State tied for first with 5-3 records and two games to play. Washburn and Omaha are a game back at 4-4, so it's mathematically possible that five of the six teams in the conference could be tied for first when the smoke clears away from Saturday night's action. Fort Hays State would seem to hold the upper hand at the moment because it entertains last place St. Benedicts, which has only one victory in eight conference games. Omaha is at Emporia and Washburn at Pittsburg. Pittsburg's Gorillas seemed to have Emporia State on the skids until the Hornets scored 14 straight points in a 6%-minute rampage in the second half, climaxed by a big Pittsburg' beef on a foul call.

J T 110 West 4th St T J Right Down Town T f Tire * A 9 Supply, Inc. i CH !M43€ T OHS Plays Friday With Title At Stake Tomorrow night, the Eastern Kansas League title is up for grabs, as the Argentine Mustangs try to de-throne the current leader, the Ottawa Cyclones, on the Reds' home court. Ottawa, with a 74 league mark, could insure a share of first place with a victory, while the Mustangs need the win to tie for the -crown. Both teams are on the rebound from defeats. Ottawa dropped one to Turner and Argentine has lost its last three outings. i Argentine floundered before the 2-barrel attacgk of a duo of non- league foes, Pern Day and Stunner. Pern Day saddled the Horses with a 70-50 romp while Sumner's Spartans skipped off with a 61-50 victory. Richard Mabion, Argentine's top scorer and re- bounder, didn't play in the Pern Day bout due to an injury suffered during the Rosedale loss the week before. Against Sumner, Mabion was ineffective but is expected to be in condition for the clash tomorrow night. Coach Larry Bale's quintet has played one game over the 500 mark with an 8-7 win-loss record and a 6-2 EKL mark. The Argentine crew holds a solid second place berth going into the final two weeks of the season. Jim Doyle and Drue Jennings give the Mustangs punch with 10-0 averages behind Mabion's 13-0 average. Towering Larry Bray, a 6-5 sophomore, has improved the starting combination with his height and rebounding and Larry Moore, an 8.6 hitter, sharpens the first string with a steady hand. Ottawa still boasts the most potent scoring trio in the EKL with Harry Morton, Roy Dunn and Ronnie Mendell. Morton is the top scorer in the league with a 16.5 average and is taking down 14 rebounds per contest to lead the team in both departments. Dunn is hitting at a 13.6 clip while Mendell holds a 13.1 average. Mendell, leading sophomore and a regular, is approaching the sophomore scoring mark set by Bob Lewis at 185 points. Mendell has 184 points and has two ball games to break the record. Lewis, top scoring ace in Ottawa High history, tallied 1,050 points in three years to better all existing records. Now, Mendell has a shot at the opening season mark and will probably surpass it during the Argentine game tomorrow night * * * Cyclone Coach H. K. Steven* deems the Argentine tilt as ". .. the most important contest of the season." Although the Reds roost on the top rung, the Mustangs could tie the league in knots with a victory. Ottawa still has one league game with Rosedale while the Mustangs lock horns with Olathe to wind up the EKL season. * * * Change In Scoring But Morton Leads Ottawa's Harry Morton still maintains his hold on first place in Eastern Kansas League scoring with a 16.5 game average. The second-place race tightened as Turner's Don Pankey took over the No. 2 slot with a 15.5 average to edge out Wayne McDonald, Bonner Spring's ace scorer, who slipped to a 15.0. Clayton McGee moved back into the top four with a 14.3 total Compliments On Tee Shot TOKYO (AP) - Care to be complimented by a lion or an elephant when you hit a good golf shot? Then a driving range at Kyoto in central Japan is the place. Instead of the standard bullseye target, figures of lions and elephant are placed at strategic spots downrange. Hit one of them and you trigger a tape recorder that shouts, "Nice shot" Miss and suffer in silence.
