HIE OTTAWA HERALD Monday, Mirth U. MM Baseball Notes Mantle Hurt; Yanks Lose Without Him By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer Mickey Mantle is injured again, but the word is that he won't be out long. The superstar centerfielder for tht world champion New York Yankees sustained a pulled groin muscle while warming up before an exhibition game with Baltimore in Miami Sunday. He was scratched from the Yankee lineup and is expected to be out two or three days. The injury is not believed to be serious. "I'm not going to use him, not even as a pinch hitter," Yankee manager Ralph Houk said. "He might hurt himself even worse and be out for four or five days. ARNOLD PALMER Palmer Wins With Birdies PENSACOLA, Fit. (AP)-Once •gain, Arnold Palmer has shown why he is one of the most respected competitors in golf. Trailing by four strokes starting the final round of the Pensacola Open, Palmer collected a fistful of birdies on the front nine and closed with a 5-under-par 67 to win the $25,000 event by two shots Sunday. His 72-hole total of 273 was 15 under par. The victory check of $3,500 left him trailing South Africa's Gary Player by little more than $1,000 for the lead among the year's top money winners. Player finished with a 69 and 275. He tied for second place with Harold Kneece, who skidded to a 73 after taking the third-round lead with a course record-tying 63 Saturday. Player "and Kneece each pocketed $2,050. The $3,500 added to previous 1962 winnings increased Palmer's earnings this year to $21,425. Player still leads with $22,452. * * * PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP)-Leading scorers and their winnings in the. Pensacola Open Golf Tournament: Arnold Palmer, $3.500 69-68-69-67—273 Harold Kneece, $2,050 69-70-63-73—275 Gary Player, $2,050 67-72-67-69-275 Tommy Bolt, $1,500 69-71-68-68-276 Mason Rudolph, $1,150 71-67-71-68-277 Bo Wininger, $1,150 69-70-70-68-277 Johnny Pott, $1,150 68-68-71-70-277 Bob Charles, $1,150 70-70-66-71—277 Dave Ragan, $875 71-70-70-67—278 Doug Sanders, $875 67-73-70-68-278 Julius Boros, $875 67-70-71-70-278 Bob Duden, $875 70-69-68-71-278 If I played him, I know he would go all out and extend himself and fie might aggravate the injury." As usual, with Mantle out, the Yanks lost. A two-run error by rookie third baseman Mike Mathieson let in the tying and winning runs as the Orioles scored a 5-4 triumph, their second straight over the Yankees. Roger Maris tripled and Hector Lopez had a homer for the losers. While the Yanks were fretting about Mantle's new injury, the Los Angeles Dodgers did some mild rejoicing over the comeback bid of lefty Sandy Koufax. Koufax, sidelined with an injury to the index finger on his pitching hand during the Dodgers' collapse in the stretch last season, allowed only two singles—one scratchy— in a three-inning stint against Milwaukee. He struck out three and walked one in the Dodgers 4-2 victory at West Palm Beach. Cincinnati pitchers showed mid season form in a 1-0, 14-inning shutout of the Chicago White Sox in Tampa, one of three games to go to extra innings. Minnesota took Detroit 4-2 in 11 innings al Lakeland, Fla., and Philadelphia shut out Pittsburgh 3-0 in 10 at Fort Myers, Fla. In the others, San Francisco beat Cleveland 10-7, the New York Mets edged St. Louis 7-5, Washing ton defeated Kansas City 7-5 Boston clubbed the Chicago Cubs 12-2 and Houston rallied to take the Los Angeles Angels 7-4. Cincinnati pitchers Bob Purkey Joe Nuxhall, Alan Worthington George McWilliams and Turk Lown combined to limit the White Sox to six hits in the long shutout, Tony Taylor's lOth-inning triple started the Phillies to their triumph and Johnny Caryl's two- run double in the 10th was the winner for Minnesota. Dick Stuart, acquired by Boston in the hopes of providing some right-handed power, had a homer, a triple and a single for the Red Sox while $150,000 bonus baby pitcher Bob Garibaldi got the victory for San Francisco in a couple of the other features. Test Accident "Prevention" MIAMI, Fla. (AP)-The metropolitan sheriff's office begins an electronic accident prevention system today. It works like this: a computer is asked where the next accident is likely to occur. When the machine coughs up an answer, motorcycle officers are rushed to the area to prevent the mishap. Lt. Q. L. Weaver, who has been compiling statistics for weeks says the answers also include what type traffic violation is most likely to cause accidents. The officers plan to wait "a reasonable length of time" at the scene to see if a possible accident develops. A Sour Gift For Rocky ALBANY, N.Y. (AP)-Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller Friday received a "tongue-in-cheek" gift from California Gov. Edmund F Brown—15 pounds of lemon sour balls in a redwood box. Brown, a Democrat, explainet in a letter to New York's top Re publican that the gift was "a sor of consolation prize" because Cal ifornia now claims to be first in population, the place long held by New York, though the figures are in dispute. Brown also included five pounds of candy kisses to take the sting out of the gift and wished Rocke feller "a very sweet future."

(Herald Photo) Morton Top S corer In EKI TOP EKL SCORER - Ottawa's Harry Morton was top scorer in Eastern Kansas League with 16.7 game aver(Herald Photo) By CONRAD DOWNING If Coach H. K. Stevens is high on 6-6 Harry Morton, he has reason to be. The amiable giant has provided Stevens with a high flying center who is one of five reasons Ottawa copped the Eastern Kansas League conference flag and the EKL tournament trophy. In addition to these samples of his worth, Morton led the league with a 16.7 average to win the unofficial scoring race. He pumped in 319 points, a career high, during the season. Morton netted 122 field goals over the rugged 19-game route, along with 75 free throws. His goals came on 271 shots attempted for a 45 per cent shooting average. In the free throw department, he shot a 68 per cent total with 75 of 110 throws. Diminutive Wayne McDonald, Bonner Spring's shotgun shooter, scampered into the scoring hon- BowCing Roundup Kramer A Champ In Champs' Play St. John Leads ABC Singles BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The lead in classic singles at the American Bowling Congress tournament belonged today to Guy St. John of South Bend, Ind., after being exchanged like a hot potato during the weekend. St. John shot a 684 three-game series Sunday to displace Dick Cochran of Chicago, who had taken the lead Saturday with 682. Bob Leap of Bedford, Ind., who led at the start of the action Saturday with the 672 he rolled Feb. 24, dropped to third place. She Needed A Reminder SALINA (AP) - Mrs. Ralph Brown of Salina got a postcard in the mail but couldn't read it because she had left her eyeglasses at Solomon, Kan., where she operates a store. So she borrowed glasses from a friend who had much the same prescription. The postcard was a reminder from her optometrist to make an appointment to get her eyes checked. Homer Kramer is back B) the groove, and it's trouble for his Grand Champions League foes. Homer scored a 660 series, on lines of 217-233-210, last night as his Todd's Mobile Homes team rolled 2614 and beat Edmiston's, 4-0, in Champions play at the Ottawa Bowl Lanes. Members of the league are winners of Ottawa Bowl men's leagues last year. K. Liegerot rolled the best series, 571, in mixed league action Saturday night at the Ottawa Bowl. But his Plugs could only split 2-2 with the Hustlers in the Nite Owls League. Craig Davis led R and M Midget Leaguers at the Ottawa Bowl last week, rolling a 357 two-line series with 192-165. Joe Moody scored 359 and Hal Suits 301. Team results and individual scores in the Champions, Midget and Saturday night leagues appear elsewhere in today's sports section.

Bill N 111 III College Basketball Faces Texas In NCAA By JIM HACKLEMAN Associated Press Sports Writer Cincinnati opens' fire this week n its bid to capture college has- cetball's highest prize for the third consecutive year—with 22 elite teams primed to topple the mighty Bearcats. Cincinnati, going after an unprecedented third straight national title, makes its initial start in the 1963 NCAA tournament Friday night. First crack at the kings of the rugged Missouri Valley Conference will be taken by Texas, a winner in the NCAA classic's opening doubleheader. The Bearcats and the Longhorns tangle at Lawrence, Kan., in one of the four NCAA regional semifinals. Seven first - round games are set for tonight. Elsewhere in the flurry of postseason action, the 26th National Invitation Tournament begins Thursday night at New York's Madison Square Garden. Wichi ta's Wheatshockers, who dealt top-ranked Cincinnati its only loss of the season, head the 12-team field. The NCAA small college tour ney also continues, with the na tional quarter-finals at Evansville, Ind., Wednesday night, and 32 teams begin shooting for the NAIA title tonight in the weeklong marathon at Kansas City. Texas and Oklahoma City posted the first victories in the NCAA tourney Saturday while three other clubs won conference berths in the event and the battle for the final spot ended in a tie, to be resolved in a playoff. The Longhorns ran off from Texas Western 65-47 and Okla homa City topped Colorado State University 70-67 in the Midwest first round at Lubbock, Tex. Meanwhile, Illinois, Colorado and San Francisco won their way into the NCAA—the Dlini with a big boost from Indiana. Illinois scored at home againsl Iowa 73-69 and Indiana upended Ohio State 87-85 in overtime on the Hoosiers" floor, halting the Buckeyes' drive for a fourth straight Big Ten crown. The results left Illinois and Ohio State deadlocked for first in the conference with 11-3 records and under Big Ten rules the NCAA trip went to the mini since the Buckeyes went last year. Colorado pulled a surprise, ty- ning K-State for the Big Eighl championship. The Buffaloes got the NCAA spot, despite the tie, since they took both their regular season games against Kansas State. San Francisco won the showdown for the West Coast Athletic Conference title when a free throw by Dave Lee with 2 seconds to go enabled the Dons to squeeze by Santa Clara 62-61. The other Pacific Court race fln* shed in a dead heat between UCLA and Stanford, who wound up with 7-5 marks in the Big Six and will settle the NCAA question in a playoff at Santa Monica Tuesday night.
