Spring Hill District Winner Takes Overtime To Beat Eagles THEY'LL CHALLENGE OTTAWA BOWLING TEAM-This University of Kansas varsity bowling team will roll a return match with Ottawa Bowl team at 3 p.m. Sunday at Otawa Bowl Lanes. From left are B. C. Fearing, KU games manager and coach; Harold Bunch, Don Kahl, Terrel Hays and David Rybolt, an Ottawan. Ottawa Bowl beat KU, 2917-2829, in earlier match. Not shown is fifth team member, Bob Bowerseeck. KU-Ottawa Bowl Match Tomorrow Dave Rybolt, an Ottawan whoi learned his bowling under Ralph Kampschroeder at the Ottawa Bowl Lanes, will bring his University of Kansas team to Ottawa Sunday, March 3, to challenge his former teacher and four others. The Jayhawks and the Ottawa Bowl team will meet in a 3-line return match at 3 p.m. at the Ottawa Bowl. The Ottawa Bowl quintet, with Jim Snider rolling 682, beat the Jayhawks Jan. 6 with an outlandish 2917 series to 2829 for KU. Dave rolled a 585, just two pins shy of the 587 by his former teacher, Kampschroeder. Dave, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Rybolt, 1023 N. Cedar, in his third year on the KU bowling team, is secretary of the Big Eight Bowling League. And he has been named director for the Big Eight Tournament which will be April 26-27 at KU. 3ttawa-KU match Sunday, and! Ralph and. Marie Kampschroeder, Ottawa Bowl proprietors, invite everyone. It ought to be a real thriller, for, looking at the Jayhawk averages, one wonders why the Ot- tawns won the first set. The KU five has a 935 average, compared to the 902 Ottawa Bowl took into the series at KU. Rybolt's average is 189. And the Jayhawks hit a 1087 line against Emporia State. Ottawa Bowl's best line in the earlier match was 988. The KU average is overall for the year, including Big Eight. Kansas Conference and all face-to- face matches, as well as team- qualifying games and regularly- scheduled practice sessions. The Jayhawks are in second place in Big Eight competition, and have a comfortable lead, with only two matches left, in the Kansas Conference which includes Wichita University. Winning the Kansas Division would mean a trip to Chicago, HI., for the National Collegiate finals April 2021 for the Jayhawks. There'll be no^harge to see theiKU, K-State, Emporia State and The Jayhawks have a 4-game match remaining with Oklahoma which should decide the Big Eight title. With Kampschroeder and Snider on the Ottawa Bowl team are Homer Kramer, Bob Hull and Newt Brown. Rybolt's mates, and qualifications of each, follow: Harold Bunch, Kansas City, Kas., junior lugging an 184 average in his first year on the team; Don Kahl, sophomore with an 192 average in his second year on the team; Terrel Hays, senior from Shawnee Mission, a 4-year KU bowling veteran and team captain with an 195 average, and Bob Bowerseeck, Kansas City, Kas., junior carrying an 185 average in his first year on the team. By A. I. VAN CLEAVE LOUISBURG - If they would handle ties in basketball as they do in football, Wellsville and Spring Hill would be co-champions of the Class B District Tournament concluded here last night. And both deserve the honor. But they play overtime in cases of basketball ties, and Spring Hill's fine Broncos came out on top in the overtime, 50-42. The score was 40-40 at the end of the regular four quarters. To Spring Hill Coaches James Petrie and Robert Green and the Broncs go the district laurels. To Coach Al Williams and the Wellsville Eagles must go the admiration of everyone who follows Little Seven League basketball and who kept up with the tournament here. (Right here and now, while worthiness is being assessed, give 15 rahs for Coach Norton Hartsook and the other hospitable people for Louisburg High who know how to be tournament hosts and have a sweet gymnasium to do it in.) Spring Hill went in at Louisburg with a bye and favored. The Broncos had won second place in the Little Seven, behind Eudora, and the Spring Hill victory in the tournament here wasn't unexpected. • i ••^••••^•n*^^^^"^^™ If It's About Track Just Ask Orlis Cox Orlis Cox, 37-year veteran coach at Ottawa High School, is one of the lecturers on the program for the annual state track clinic today at the University of Wichita. Cox, a recognized authority in the coaching of track, has appeared on the state clinic agenda previously and was to lecture on the broad jump at this year's meeting. World Series Star Is Dead LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) Emil (Irish) Meusel, who in 1922 set a World Series runs batted in record that still stands, is dead of.' a heart attack at the age of 69. Meusel had been ill a short time before this death Friday at Pacific Hospital. He died only a lay after Hall of Fame pitcher Eppa Rixey of Cincinnati, against whom he batted many times. Meusel had worked the past 15 years as a guard at the Santa Anita and Hollywood Park race tracks. He played 10 years in the majors, six with the old New York Giants .He also played for the Philadelphia Phillies and the old Brooklyn Dodgers. His; career batting average was .311. Meusel's younger brother, Bob, played for the New York Yankees and they were opponents in three World Series, from 1921 through 1923. The Giants won the first two and the Yanks the third. Irish set a record for an eight- game series by driving in seven runs in the 1921 classic and set a record for a five-game series by driving in seven again in 1922. Meusel's brother, Bob, now is a chief security guard at a plant in Long Beach. Irish's other sur- vors include his widow, Estella, and two sisters, Mrs. Mary Louise GUI and Mrs. Edith W. Robinson, both of Inglewood, Calif. Funeral services will be conducted Monday at the Grace Chapel of Inglewood Park Cemetery. A graduate of Kansas University in 1923, Cox coached three years at his home town, Elk City, before coming to Ottawa. While at KU, he participated in football and basketball and continued into coaching upon graduation. ( In 1948, Ottawa had a banner year in track as the preps won every big meet they entered which included the KU Relays, Baker Relays and the Ottawa Relays. Shawnee Mission North was the only opponent who bested the Cyclones on the cinders that season. Although Cox had better squads, he still professes that his 1933 thinclads hold a special place in his scrapbook. The 1933 Otta- wans entered the National High School Track Meet at Chicago and took first in the ^-mile relay This was the only event they entered and what made it so outstanding was the fact that they outran the great Jessie Owens then a Toledo High School track star and a member of the half mile team. Owens went on to Ohio State and the Olympics where he set records that still are remem bered. Cox still smiles with this recollection. Many local Ottawans recall Cox md his coaching as the Cyclones ame in second to Wichita East n the 1946 State AA and A Track fleet. Six boys represented the Reds on the cinders, among them Dr. Rodney McClay and Spencer Martin, two of the members that ook first place medals in that meet. Martin placed first in the ligh jump while McClay took top lonors in the pole vault and low uirdles. Football was another interest hat occupied the ageless Cox as he coached the sport as head mentor for 12 years. His best season was an 8-1 record. Since his advent 37 years ago, Orlis Cox has moved up to the job of athletic director at the high school and now heads the Ottawa recreation program during the summer. Although he no longer coaches football, he still clings to his major spring sport, track. No doubt whenever the Ottawa voters decide to give the high school students of Ottawa a new building, Orlis Cox will still maintain his stature as the most energetic and best known track mentor Ottawa has had in the past three decades. What wasn't expected, except by Al Williams, his Eagles and loyal Wellsville fans, was that the Eagles, who had won only one regular season game, were going to pace a close, close second in this tournament and go on, with Spring Hill, to the regional elimination at Gardner Tuesday night. The near capacity crowd in Louisburg's pretty 1200-capacity gymnasium last night were treated to two real basketball shows. Stanley and Gardner provided one in the battle for third place, with Coach Tom Coyle's Stanley Marooners beating out Ralph Snavely's Trailblazers, 48-47. Then came the overtime championship finale. For the sake of the records, put down Spring Hill's Raymond Hittle, with 18 points, and Steve Newton and Brian Beach, with 13 each, as top pointmakers for the Broncs. And on the Wellsville side note David Beasley with 14 and Don Good with 12. Wellsville started the scoring in the low-scoring match with Bill Coughlin's field goal. The spectators must to have been ready to throw out the Scoreboard, so litte was it used in the standoff 6-6 first quarter. Hittle, a handsome tail-like, dark-crinkly-haired Bronco tied it up, 2-2, with 4 minutes, 40 seconds left in that initial period. Then Beach put the Broncos ahead with a field goal. Wellsville's Gary Rader broke up a pass and was fouled by a Bronco who didn't like it, and Gary sank the shot to make it 4-3, Spring Hill. Along comes Hittle with two free throws, but Wellsville's Don Good and Delon Jacoby hits a field goal each to make it 6-6. than a minute to go, Beach took two shots that rolled around and around the rim before falling outside. It was all Broncos in the overtime with Newton hitting a long one to make it 42-40 and Hittle laying one up for a 44-40 count. Good, who had taken two hook shots that missed already in the 3-minute extra session, finally hit to make it 44-42, Spring Hill, with 34 seconds left. You wouldn't believe it could happen, but- the Broncos got six more points. Hittie, fouled, hit two free throws. Mickey Timmons hit a fielder with 12 seconds left. Newton shot a free throw, and Hittle laid a 2- pointer in. Stanley had 17 points from Ed Tanquary and 15 from Clifford Hunt in its 48-47 third - place win. But Gardner's David Velasquez was the top pointmaker with 25. Here's the individual scoring in both games: SPRING HILL - 50: Hittle, 4 10 2; Beach, 6 1 3; Hickman, 1 0 4; Newton, 6 1 4; Timmons, 0 2 4; Conor, 100. Totals, 18 14 17.

Actually, Delon's shot went over Spring Hill defender, Brian Beach, and landed on proper side of board but missed goal. (Herald Photo). KU Won Game; Who Won Fight? LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP)-Kansas moved into a sixth-place tie with Missouri in the Big Eight basketball race by beating the Tigers 72-68 Friday night. Each is 4-9 in the league. A fist fight between Nolen Ellison, Kansas captain, and Ken Doughty of Missouri halted the game with 1:14 to go. Ellison, playing his last home game, said Doughty called him an insulting name. "That's when I swung," Ellison added, "I got carried away, and I'm sorry." Al Correll of Kansas and George Flamank of Missouri officials and other players restored order. Ellison was sent to the showers. Ellison made 12 points, running his career total to 1,034, a record for a Kansas backliner. The previous record of 1,030 was held by Jerry Gardner. George Unseld who got 25 points, and Correll, with 14, fired Kansas to a 44-34 halftime lead and the Jayhawks kept a comfor- able lead most of the second half. After a 69-52 advantage with 8:30 to go, Kansas got worried by a steady Missouri advance and undertook a delaying-iype attack. The score was 71-65 when the ill feelings occurred. Elsewhere in the Big Eight, Kansas State will play at Oklahoma State tonight and Oklahoma will play at Nebraska. Gary Rader showed his stuff in the second quarter, hitting two field goals to go with one by Jacoby to put Wellsville ahead, 12-6, before the Broncs could muster. But Spring Hill had seven points by Hittle before the second quarter ended, and Wellsville was ahead by only one point, 19-18, at halftime. Beasley showed his stuff for the Eagles in the third. So did Spring Hill's Newton Newton opened the quarter by putting Spring Hill ahead, 20-19, with a field goal from outside, a position from which Newton got all of his six fielders. But Beasley put in two quick 2-pointers, and Don Good cashed in on a 3-point play that put the Eagles ahead 26-20. It was some 3-point play. Good broke up a Bronc pass, dribbled down the court on a fast break and, when a Spring Hill player tried to cut him off from the basket, fired to Beasley, The alert Bronco shifted to cover Beasley. But Dave, on the same jump that took him up to catch the pass, tossed it back to Good who laid on in. Fouled on the play, Good sank the free throw.

(AP)—Possibly no population explosion anywhere has stirred such concentrated controversy as that which has been occurring in a remote valley in the extreme northwest corner of, Wyoming. There, in a section of Yellowstone National Park, range the 5,000 animals in the northern Yellowstone elk herd—unaware of the problems they are creating for themselves, other wildlife and humans hundreds of miles away. For 30 years the increasing elk herd has been a source of irritation to the National Park Service, states surrounding the w'lderness park and thousands of sportsmen. The disputa is over how to control the size of the herd and keep it in line with what the park service thtftfe* is desirable for the animals' wellbeing, the preservation of natural forage and the enjoyment of tourists who swarm through the park. The issue reached a bitter climax last winter when 5,000 elk were slaughtered in their winter feeding grounds. New outcrie followed an announcement thai this winter's required reduction 01 1,800 head had been completed The reduction included shooting o: 400 elk by park rangers. Now, the air has been allowec to clear somewhat and observers feel a solution is closer than at any time in the past three years when the heavy reduction program began. But as Wyoming Gov. Cliff Hansen says, much still needs to be done before there is really any understanding between the National Park Service, which runs the park, and the surrounding stales and various sportsmen's groups. Montana Gov. Tim Babcock said he hopes this winter marks the end of elk shooting inside Yellowstone. he Lamar River Valley in northwestern Yellowstone park to wait or spring. There the problem jegins. The elk are ravenous jaters. Whitetail deer and beaver are almost extincl in the park because the elk destroy their feed. Finally, an agreement was reached whereby a migration study could be started so that more could be learned of elk movements and perhaps increase the kill by hunters outside the Dark. There also was agreement on a stepped-up trapping and transplanting program. Wyoming said it would take all the elk it could eel. THE OTTAWA HERALD I Saturday, March 2, 1963 The Elk range both in and outside the park in small bands during good weather, usually high in the mountains and rarely within sight of any human eyes. But in winter, the elk are driven to lower elevations by the snows jand gather on 125,000 acres in Rosburg Leads New Orleans Field By BEN THOMAS NEW ORLEANS (AP)-Volalile Bob Rosburg used a hot putter lo defeat the windswept Lakewocd Counlry Club course for a one- stroke lead in the $40,000 Greater New Orleans Open Golf Tournament.

(AP)-Thr rebuilt Pittsburgh Pirates, faster, younger, and stronger on defens* : but probably weaker on offense, face the 1963 baseball wars hope- 1 fully—but Manager Danny Miu>: taugh is making no promises. Rarely has a pennant contender shaker, up its infield as violently in trades as did the Pirates. Gone are such well known vet* erans as Don Hoak, Dick Groat and Dick Stuart. Only survivor is Bill Mazeroski at second base. At first there will probably be Donn Clendenon, a slugger who played part of last season with the Pirales and part with Columbus of the International League. Backing him up are Willie Stargell, brought up from Columbus, and Pancho Herrera, a onetime Phillie. Dick Schofield is expected to take over Groat's post at shortstop, and at third is a 20-year-old rookie with only two years of professional experience, Bob Bailey. "There's a lot of work to do," says Murtaugh "We'll have to wait and see." The Pirates, world champions in 1960, finished fourth last year, eight games behind San Francisco. Joe L. Brown, the general manager, started trading in the off- season. NAIA Wearying Of Kansas City KANSAS CITY (AP) - The pos- ' sibility that decreasing gate re- . ceipts may force the National Inter collegiate Athletic Association to transfer its annual basketball _ tournament to another city was raised Friday. Al Duer, executive secretary of . the NAIA, asked the City Council to consider giving the small college athletic organization rent-free use of the Municipal Auditorium for the tournament. This year's tournament is March 11-16. It has been held in Kansas City 26 years. Duer estimated receipts have dropped more than $10,000 the last six tournaments. The Council referred Duer's request to an investigating committee.
