TH£TIPTON DXILT TRIBUNE Tuesday, April 6, 1965 ices To Win Masters Two good bisketball exhibitions are oa the local agenda this week. Word of the first one didn't reach us until late yesterday -afternoon tout we hope this reaches you in time to imake it to the Tipton Junior High gym at 8 o'clock tonight when a Butler University Alumni quintet, headed by Rod Schwartz (class of 1961) will oppose the Tipton High School faculty team in ; a benefit exhibition sponsored by the Tipton T-men. The second game of course is the Harlem Travelers here Sat- urady evening against the local Perfect Circle Ringers in : another ibenefit sponsored by the Tipton Lions Club.. . The Harlem club appeared last Saturday at Hartford City and sank 92 points in a victory against coaches of schools in the Hartford City area. "Sweetwater" Clifton led the scoring with 27 points but all the players were in double figures for the Travelers. Huntington Today It's too early to have any idea what the rest of the conference schools have in track for few of them have any (Competition under their belts and only competition results in improved performances. Coach Jerry Young of Huntington never comes up with a weak team,. however, so the Blue Devils will be up against one of the CIC's better outfits this afternoon. The ground \ outside and inside the. track may be muddy Spidel Camper .

Runways; for the broad jump, pole vault and high jump are all-weather grasstex and the shot is performed on a solid surface. The track itself has a tile base that enables the water to drain off rapidly so it should be a good meet and Tipton times should start to improve. Kokomo Thursday Kokomo will provide a better test Thursday, in j all probability than Huntington for the Wildcats have already a number of meets under their belt, taking part in several indoor meets. In almost every event the kats have better marks than any Tipton boy has yet recorded with Mike Kilmer turning in a 10.4 second hundred yard dash and a 53.7.clocking in the 440. Hutchins; was third against Fort Wayne North in the 220 dash won in 24.1 and Tipton's Louie Guenther has a 25 flat time in that event on a cold day, which he may be able to chop considerably. KUlingbeck's time in the 880 is 2:10.2 against a 2:11.7 for sophomore Dan Tragesser, while Stacker turned in a 4:49.4 mile against Dick Heron's 4:45 time. Hilligoss is the defending state champ in the shot put, but Tipton's Keith Smith might give the Wildcat's Marty Edwards a good tussle in the broad jump. Both have been over 20 feet. Steve Jones should have the pole vault wrapped up for Kokomo, having cleared 12 feet Monday against F or t Wayne. • • • . Jim Barber may give the Tipton hurdlers some rough competition. Barber was a close second against Fort Wayne in the high hurdles won in 15.4 seconds and won the low hurdles in 21.4, better time than any of the Tipton hurdlers have turned in to-date. Kokomo also has a lot of depth in both relays and these two races could be the most interesting of the day Tfaurs day. ; Garret Angered , Fans of the Garrett High School Railroaders are reported somewhat more than perturbed by-the fact that 6'11" Chuck Bavis is considering moving to either iFort Wayne North, Fort Wayne South or New Haven for his senior year of basketball. Baivis was the backbone of Garrett's Regional team this season and an almost certain Indiana All Star next year along with Lebanon's Rick Mount. Another on that squad will likely be North Side's 6'8" Siebert. The all stars will not lack for height next year. SPRING TRAINING By United Press International Weather permitting, Purdue's Boilermakers were scheduled to open their spring football practice sessions today, with the Irish of Notre Dame and Indiana's Hoosiers entering their second day of practice. Notre Dame, with 17 lettermen among the more than'80 footballers on hand, held its annual picture day in South Bend Monday. Only one letter winner from last year's squad missed the workout, defensive tackle Kevin Hardy, who is a pitcher on the baseball team. A steady light rain slowed down most of the Fighting Irish activity. "The majority of our problems pertain to offense," Coach Ara 'Parseghian said, "particularly at .quarterback and split end. We appear to be fairly solid on defense." The rain-soaked field at Bloomington didn't seem to deter new head coach Johnny Pont, however, who put 97 Indiana football players through their first running- series in a working practice. . Observers said it appeared Pont was working the squad to install, enough plays in the books to hold practice scrimmages Thursday and Friday. RECALL DEFENSEMAN PITTSBURGH (UPI) — The Pittsburgh Hornets of the American Hockey League Monday recalled defenseman Ron Harris from Memphis. Harris, who scored 18 goals and 18 assists in 70 games this Reason, was called up under emergency condition when Pete Goegan and Gary Doak were injured. Farm Club Helps Sox Mound Staff By JOE GERGEN The Chicago White j Sox unquestionably ; had the finest pitching staff in the major leagues last year but there may have been an even better one in the minors. That would be at Indianapolis, which happens to be Chicago's farm club in the Pacific Coast League. All of which poses a definite problem for Chisox Manager Al Lopez, who is faced jwi th the prospect of wedging three young Indianapolis alumni onto an already talent-laden pitching staff before the start of the American League season next week. Bruce Howard, who posted a miniscule 2.20 ERA at Indian apolis last year and then allowed 0.82 runs per game in three starts with the Chisox at the end of the season, already has won a starting berth, while towering Dave DeBusschere, the player-coach of the National Basketball Association's De-< troit Pistons, feels he deserves one, too. Case In Point Now there's the case of Bobby Locker, who won more games than either Howard or DeBusschere in 1964 (16) and isn't even on the Chicago roster. Locker made Lopez' task that much more difficult Mon­ day'when he twirled three hitless innings to complete Chicago's 2-0 one-hit victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. Locker's stint raised his total innings pitched during the spring to 17, during which time he has allowed only one run, which is an exceptional performance even for a Chicago staff that gave up but 2.72 earned runs per game last season. Locker, a lanky righthander who wore a weighted vest to strengthen his legs when he first arrived at Sarasota., for training, took over from veteran Johnny Buzhardt, who had allowed only a sharp single to Wes Covington in the fourth inning. J. C. Martin cracked a homer for one Chicago run and the other came across on Dick Stuart's bobble.

Kansas City A's Cave Up Power To Help Fielding By LEO H. PETERSEN BRADENTON, iFla. (UPI)— The Kansas City Athletics, under their new - manager, Mel McGaha, are going to try to win ball games this year with defense and-pitching. They tried to do it with power last season and wound up in the American League cellar. The trouble is, however, that they may come up short in pitching again. There's no question they've improved defensively for they added outfielders Jim Landis and* Mike Hershberger and they have the same slick infield they had last year. But that pitching! "We only had 18 complete games by our pitchers last year," recalled McGaha, who took over the club in June of last year, succeeding Ed Lopat; "and you can't be satisfied with that kind of pitching." To do something about it the Athletics spent $600,000 in bonus money signing kids, six of them pitchers. And what's even more important, according to McGaha, - they decided to move back the fences of Municipal Stadium in Kansas City—except for .the right field fence. McGaha lists his club's strong points as: —His infield of Jim Gentile at first, Dick Green at second, Wayne Causey at short and Ed Charles at third; —His relief pitching headed by John Wyatt and V/es Stock. The Athletics gave up Rocky Colavito to get Hershberger, Landis and pitcher Fred Talbot from the White Sox in a three- club deal, also involving Cleve^ land. The Indians wound up with Colavito. Hershberger and Landis are fine glove men but have been found wanting at the plate. They will, however, form two- thirds of the regular outfield. The third outfielder may be Nelson Mathews, another fine fielder with a light bat. Hershberger hit .230 last year, Landis .208 and Mathews .239. Veteran Catchers Two veterans. Doc Edwards and Bill' Bryan, will share the catching and they hit only .224 and ,241, respectively, last season. Add those averages to those of the outfielders and it's plain to see where McGaha is not counting on power to win ball games this coming season. Outside of those bullpen aces, Wyatt and Stock, the Kansas City pitching is uncertain — so uncertain that right now it looks like Moe Drabowsky, who won only five games last season while losing 13, could be the No. 1 starter. He's been the most effective , A's pitcher in spring training exhibition games. SPORTS PARADE By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer AUGUSTA, Ga. (UPI) — All work and no play sure is making a lot o fjack for Doug Sanders, who has "quit partying" but promises to throw the biggest one in the history of golf if he ever wins the Masters. Every place you go along Augusta National's rolling 6,980- yard layout' the. word is out "keep an eye on Sanders" and while such an admonition ordinarily doesn't mean much two days before the shooting starts, that advice must carry some weight when golfers like Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Sam Snead are offering it. "Sanders could jump right out on Thursday and win this whole thing," points out Palmer, a man. who should know a thing or two about the Masters as a four-time winner himself. In the PGA books, the good- looking, 32-year-old Sanders is the official leading money winner of the year so far with gross earnings of $29,158. He picked up the bulk of that sum with back-to-back victories in the Pensacola and Doral opens. Notices Difference "What a difference since I've knocked off the partying," Sanders grinned, moments before joining Palmer on the first tee for a leisurely practice round. '"Oh, I'm still not what you'd call a goodie-goodie by any means.' I still smoke cigarettes and go with girls, but I've given up the booze. I-haven't had a drink in months- and there's no doubt in my mind whatsoever it has helped my game'. -"I played better and worse golf in the past 4hree years than 1- ever did in my life said Sanders, accepting his driver from a caddy. "Carrying on at night and drinking the way I was; my nerves used to be real jumpy. I went through my share of domestic troubles and that didn't bring my score down any, either. It got to a point where I was.hardly thinking about golf. And that only , happens to be the way I earn my living. Throw A Party "If I should ever win this thing,"- he said, rolling his eyes at -the prospect, "I'd throw a party the like qt which has never been seen tefore. When I say a party I mean a real party. I'd get a case of champagne just to start it off and pour for everyone. "That's right, even for Tony Lema. I owe Tony, a few bot ties. I think I've intercepted a (Continued on Page 6) Betting Odds 4-1 Nicklatis By LEO H. PETERSEN UPI Sports Editor AUGUSTA, Ga. (UPI)—Arnold Palmer, still shooting for that elusive grand slam, was the sentimental favorite and power - hitting Jack .Nicklaus the betting choice today for the Masters Golf Tournament beginning Thursday. Nicklaus, the 1963 winner, was 4 to 1 in the pre-tournament odds, with Palmer rated: second at 6 to 1. "I guess this is the first time in a long while I'm not favJ ored to win the Masters." said Palmer, a four time winner of the coveted green jacket which goes to the champion each year, along with a bundle of money. "But it doesn't bother me. When I was asked what I thought about those odds favoring Jack, I replied I thought; they were right. On this course, he • certainly figures. "That doesn't mean I'm conceding anything to Jack or anyone else. I'm not at the' top of my game, but I feel I'm coming around and as you. know I always shoot for this, one." Getting Tougher It's the one the golden boy of the links has fo win if he ever is to achieve that grand slam. Palmer admits his chances of ever capturing it are getting tougher, every year. "I'm 35 years old now," he explains, "and in my business that's getting old. After all, this is my 11th Masters and I've been a professional for 10 years. I realize time is running out on me but so long as I keep going I always have that grand slam in the back of my mind." In four of those 10 years as a golfer eligible for that grand slam, Palmer has started out on the right foot and won the Masters — in 1958, 1960, 1962 and 1964. The best he ever did, however, was win two of the four titles that make up te grand slam. One year he added the U.S. Open to his Masters title, another year the British Open, but he never did put those three together. . And the fourth one — the ,PGA (Professional Golfers Association) title — he never has won. Still Within Reach "I don't feel it's beyond my reach at 35," said Palmer. "I know there's a lot of talk about my outside interests affecting my game. I hope to prove it wrong. , "I think it's mental with me as well as anything else. I'm satisfied with my driving and my putting but I'm off on my long irons." He may not be, come the first round on Thursday, for he went out on the practice tee and hit nothing but long irons for two hours. When he teed off late in the afternoon for a practice round over the 6,980-yard Masters course, soggy and wet, the major part of the practice round gallery gave up whoever they were following to join Arnie's army. One thing is certain — he's going to give his all not to let his army down. , TRAINER DIES PHILADELPHIA (UPI) — Horse trainer Carl Roork, 50, collapsed and died Monday while watching an early morning training session, at Liberty Bell Harness Track. Roork, of Harrington, Del., is survived by his wife and three children. PRINCESS i GARDNER Qakfland REGISTRAR^BILLFOLD Charming pastel flower* embroidered on Matt lustra Cowhide.
