PAGE 4 THEttPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Mondoy; April 5,1965 Frank Robinson Is Reds' Big Man By JOE GERGEN UP I Sports Writer Like BUI Russell, who was a high school basketball teammate back in Oakland, Calif., (Frank Robinson is the "big man" on his team. ..' Robinson's team happens to be the Cincinnati Reds, who finished only! a game behind •the St. Louis Cardinals in the frantic National League pennant race last year despite an "average" season by their outfielder. Robby's hitting in 1964 was, of course, average only by his own standards. He batted .306 with 29 home runs and 96 runs batted in, a considerable output for anyone. But the 29-year-old Robinson can do better, and down in Tampa, Fla., they think this is going to be one of Frank's big years, which naturally means a big year for the Reds. Raps Fifth Homer The 6-foot-l, 187-pound fly- chaser rapped his fifth home run of the spring and drove in three runs Sunday as Cincinnati whipped the Detroit Tigers, 7-3. Since Robby's hitting usually is the key to the Reds' attack, it's not -surprising that the team has compiled a 17-6 Why Not Attend THE CHURCH: You can read about in the New Testament (Acts 20:28; Romans 16:16)? That has no creed but Christ and no rule of faith but the Bible (Matthew 16:18; 1 Timothy 3:16-17)? That exhalts Christ as the only Head of the Church (Colossians 1:18)? That patterns.; its worship strictly after the New Testament (John 4:24; Acts 20:07 Ephessfans 5:19)? "There is a way that seem- eth right unto man, but the end thereof are the ways of death" (Proverbs 14:12). That believes scriptural unity can be achieved on all disputed doctrinal points (1 Corinthians 1:10; John 17:21)? That is not a demonination, nor a group of demoninations but the body of Christ (Ephessians 1:22-23)? That was founded by Christ (Matthew 16:18)? If you are interested in learn- in more about the Church of Christ, read the New Testament, or visit the Church of Christ nearest you. Attend the Gospel Meetings, Church of Christ, West Jefferson Street, April 4 to 13, 7:30 p.m. record to date, the top mark in the Grapefruit League. Robinson, whose five homers rank him second only to Tony Coniglario of the Boston Red Sox among the spring swatters, had to share the club spot light with southpaw Jim O'Toole whose victory Sunday was his fourth against no defeats. ' Tommy Davis, who Is ited with Robinson at five homers apiece, continued his clutch hitting by driving in two runs in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 8-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Davis, a two-time National League batting champion, now has a total of 26 RBI's in 21 games. Dick Groat singled and tripled in a 10-run fourth-inning assault by the Cards, who romped to a 14-1 triumph over the Kansas City Athletics. Groat had three hits, as did Lou Brock, and Mike Shannon clouted a three- run homer for St. Louis, which capitalized on three errors by A's shortstop Bert Campaneris. Pitchers Hobble Angels Veteran righthanders Dick Donovan of the Cleveland Indians and Jack Sanford of the San Francisco Giants both worked impressive stints against the Los Angeies Angels, who were divided into two squads. Donovan surrendered only two hits and no runs in 7 1-3 innings as the Tribe lashed the Angels 7-1, but reliever Ted Abernathy got credit for the victory when Cleveland erupted for six runs in the eighth inning. Sanford shut out Los Angeles for seven innings in a 6-0 Giant victory. Dean Chance, the An-gels' Cy Young award winner last year,' was hit by a line drive for the second time this year. He was hit on the back of the knee by a shot off the bat of Willie Mays, but was only bruised and will not miss any training. Elsewhere, Cookie Rojas' third hit of the game, a 10th inning single, scored Tony Gon(Continued on page 6) Washington Senators Hoping To Improve By LEO H. PETERSEN UP I Sports Writer POMPANO BEACH, Fla., (UPI)—The Washington Senators have a lot of new faces and what manager Gil Hodges calls "a new outlook on life!" That doesn't .mean he has any ambitions like winnings the 1965 American League pennant. • "We're not in the contending class, but we should start moving up the ladder," said Hodges. "Our hitting is going to be better and so is our pitching. And so is our attitude. I think I can safely say we no longer have a defeatest complex." Trade Top Players To get the new faces, the Senators gave up their two best ball players, outfielder Chick Hinton and Pitcher Claude Osteen. For Hinton they received first baseman Bob Chance and all-around utility man Woodie Held from the Cleveland Indians. For Osteen they got outfielder Frank Howard, third baseman Ken Mc- Jlullen, first baseman Dick Nen and pitchers Phil Ortega and Pete Richert from the Los Angeles Dodgers. In other deals they obtained pitcher Nick Willhite and catcher Doug Camilli, also from the Dodgers, and picked up Roy Sievers as a free agent. Chance At First If he is healthy, Chance will be at first base. If not, the veteran Sievers will get the call. Sievers, who is 39 years old, has been showing his old time slugging power this spring, pphv gdon Blasingame will N Scrappy Don Blasingame will be at second base, slick-lielding Ed Brinkman at shortstop and McMullen at third. In the outfield with Howard, who will play left, will be Don Lock in center and either Jim King or Willie Kirkland right. That doesn't leave any one position for Held, who can play the 'infield or outfield. "But Woody will see a lot of action," Hodges said. "We now have a much stronger bench so we can do some maneuvering. Utility Man The veteran Don Zimmer will be kept for utility duty and this season may see action as a catcher as well as an inftelder. A rookie, Joe McCabe, may win the No. 1 catching post from last year's regular, 'Mike Brumley. McCabe hit only .274 in 27 games with Charlotte last season and only .158 in 14 games with the ' Minnesota Twins, but has looked the best of the Senator receivers this spring. Because of his strong showing and the availability of Zimmer, Camilli probably will be farmed out. With Osteen, a 15-game winner, gone. Buster Narum (9-15) and Bennie Daniels (8-10) will anchor the pitching staff. Other starters will be Ortega; who was 7-D with the Dodgers; Richert, who was 2-3 with the same club; Frank Kreutzer, who had an overall 5-7 record with the Senators and White Sox, and Willhite, who was 2-4 with the Dodgers and 7-6 at Albuquerque last season. Last year with Hinton and Osteen the Senators finished ninth. This year, with all that new blood, Hodges thinks they'll better that post. But don't bet too much on it.

TOLLE BROTHERS, 'INC. "WHERE YOU BUY YOUR DECORATIVE PRODUCT. WITH EXPERT ADVICE 111 W. Madison St. PHONE OS 5-4635 Tipton, Ind. Tickled to death with the performance of Harvey Harmon this year on his freshman squad, Red Rocha • wrote Tipton coach Dick Barr that he'd like to get both Don Curnutt and Bill Moore for his University of Hawaii squad next year . . . said if he had the three boys together out there he'd call it the "Tipton Extension of U. H." Moore however, told Barr he felt he ought to concentrate on football in thinking of college, while Curnutt is going to take his time in making a decision on what school to attend, having added the University of Kansas to the other five schools which he has -agreed for visit. All Star Tickets And speaking of Curnutt, -Booster Club President Merlin Harlow intends visiting the Indianapolis Star todry to request 750 seats for the all star game June 19th at Butler Fieldhouse so that Tipton fans can again all sit in one block to root for No. 4. Last year the Boosters got 500 seats together and Harlow had at least 50 requests after the last seat was sold. We'll let fans know where and when the tickets will be on sale here as soon as Harlow can get them. With Tipton having an all star on the team for the second year in a row, Barr jokingly told teachers at the high school last Friday that he thought he'd "get out of the coaching racket new and start a school for all stars". Iko Hampered We haven't the faintest idea how many votes it took a boy to make the all star squad this year, but were a little surprised that- there wasn't at least one more boy on the team from the Central Indiana Conference. It was too bad that Peru's 'Mike Eikcnberry suffered an elbow injury which prevented his appearance not only in the state tourney but in the final two games of the regular season, and wc thought Elwood's Rich Leave!! might have gotten onto the honor roll. Lesson For * Others With Dick Mcintosh making the team last year and Curnutt this season, it certainly should be - an inspiration to all Tipton's younger generation to work with that roundball. Both Mac and Don have been-truly dedicated boys, and that's what it takes to really' star at the game. They not only learned to dribble and lay that ball up on the backboard with both hands but even worked out in track and cross country to strengthen their legs and keep in physical condition, and that should be a lesson to the younger boys who have years' ahead of them. Meets This Week And speaking of track, the Blue Devils have a busy week ahead. Tomorrow (Tuesday) Huntington's Vikings are scheduled here for a meet. Thursday the Satans go to Kokomo for a dual meet against the always tough Wildcats, and then Saturday coach John Moses takes his boys to Marion where the host team is sponsoring its own relays in a good field that includes long time rival Noblesville. These relay meets are tricky things, where the sponsoring coach can arrange the events so that the home school can gain a big advantage. We understand that 'with a great freshman squad, Marion is going to count dougle points in the freshman relay this year. Moblesville isn't at full strength yet this year with its top broad jumper and 1 o w hurdler John Weldy, sidelined for perhaps two more weeks by mononucleosis, and high hurdler-high jumper Eddie Grissom not ou.t for track his senior year. Steve Mullin will be back in both dashes however, and will make the Millers mighty dangerous in the relay. . .we look for him to be in the state finals, barring injury.

NIXON COMPARES SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) — Former Vice President Richard Nixon concluded a speaking appearance by comparing himself to President Lyndon Johnson. "Lyndon Johnson was born in the West—I was born in the West. Lyndon Johnson served in the House, the Senate and as vice president—I served in the House, the Senate and as vice president. Lyndon Johnson has two daughters—I have two daughters. Lyndon Johnson has a dog—I have a dog. (Although I think my dog is more famous than his). Lyndon Johnson has a lovely wife—I have a lovely wife. Lyndon Johnson owns a television station — I have a lovely wife." ON THE JOB VENTURA, Calif. (UPI) — Two employes of a Bank of America branch thought a man seated near them Friday looked like the bandit who held up the bank and escaped with SS,000 last month. They called police who took the suspect into custody and questioned him at police headquarters. He was released after it was established that the time of the robbery he was at his job—as deputy district attorney. nglish leather ... the B»R «et of.
