Wednesaoy, April 14,1965 THE TIPTON DA1UY THBUNE PAGE 5 Terry Hurls Four Hitter For Indians By FRED DOWN ' UP I Sports Writer GabePaul of the Cleveland Indians can take a bow. now for the deal which caused him to take the rap all winter. Paul made one of the most controversial pleals of the 1964 * season last September when he sent pitcher Pedro Ramos to the New York Yankees, who were in desperate need of pitching. Ramos turned out to be a key factor in ^he Yankees' late surge to the 'American League pennant and Paul has been hearing ever since he made a '•gift'.' of the flag to them. Few listened when Paul pointed out that he obtained pitcher Ralph Terry in the transaction Terry? Oh yea, he's the former Boy Scout from Big Cabin Okla., who went into oblivion after starring for the Yankees in the 1962 World Series. Receive Dividend Paul's Indians received their first dividend in the deal Tues day night, however, when Terry spun a nifty four-hitter that enabled Cleveland to open its season with a J7-1 triumph over the Los Angeles Angels. —Terry, ujho had only a 7-11 record last season, looked like the 23-gam'e winner of 1962 as he shut out the Angels until the eighth inning- when rookie Paul Schaal doubled and scored on Jose Cardenal's single. By then he Indians were far in front with the aid of three Angel errors plus some canon- ading of th :ir own. The Indians scored two unearned runs with the help o| three Los Angeles errors in the second inning but Leon Wagner hit a two-run homer in the seventh and they added two I more runs on doubles by Larry Brown and Vic Davalillo and Joe Azue's single in the eighth. Terry hdd a two-hitter for seven innings and retired 14 consecutive | batters between a single by Cardenal in the third and - s 'chaai's double' in the eighth.! Fred Newman, who got the honor 'of pitching the Angels" opener so- they could hold 2u-game winner Dean Chance for Wednesday night's game with the Yankees, suffered the loss. • ' Sox Down Orioles The Chicago White Sox defeated the Baltimore Orioles 5-3 in the season opener for both teams and the Detroit Tigers drubbed the Kansas City Athletics 11-4 in other American League games. In the National League, Cincinnati downed Milwaukee 8-3, Chicago topped St. Louis 3-1, and Pittsburgh beat San Francisco 5-2. Al Lopez reached for the bullpen telephone twice—and came up with the right relief pitcher both times to make the White Sox' early lead stand up against the Orioles. Knuckleballer Eddie Fisher bailed out Gary Peters in the eighth inning. and then Tommy John came on to strike out Boog Powell for the final putpout of -the game in the ninth. Pete Ward and Johnny Romano led the White Sox' nine-hit attack with two hits each. Al Kaline paced the Tigers with a double and a single that drove in five runs. Hank Aguir- I re went six innings to receive credit for the victory although Dennis McLain held the Athletics to one run over the last three. Kaline, Jim Northrup and Don Demeter had two hits each for the Tigers and Ed Charles and Tom Reynolds had ; two each for the A's.

Rookie j Leads Reds To Win Over Braves By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer Tony Perez, who broke into baseball as a shortstop, was shifted to setond base and then converted into a third baseman, may find & home for himself on the Cincinnati Reds at first base. A 22-year.old native :of Cam- aguey, Cuba, who now lives in Charlotte, N.C., Perez brought a "can't miss" tag with him when he joined the Reds this spring after being named the Most Valuable Player in the Pacific Coast League last season. 1 i "We don't know where you'll want to play him," San Diego Manager Dave Bristol!, told the Reds, "but when you]see him hit, you'll want to play him somewhere." ; J: The 6-foot, 2-irich, 198-pound righthander got- his first chance in National;League competition when Manager Dick Sisler started him at first base Tuesday .night and he came through in sensational style iwith a grand slam homer and a double in the Reds' 8-3: victory over the Milwaukee Braves. Homers In Fifth 'Perez' homer came- in the fifth inning off Denny LeMaster after the Red filled the bes- es on a single by Vada Pinson and walks to Frank Robinson and Deron Johnson. It gave Sammy Ellis a five-run lead and enabled the rookie relief pitching ace of 1964 to coast to the win. \ Ellis, who made only five starts among his 52 appearances enroute to a 10-3 record in 1964, allowed eight hits, struck out eight batters and ; walked only two. Ellis experienced his most serious crisis in the third inning when doubles by Lee Maye and Joe Torre and Mack Jones' single produced two Milwaukee runs 'and a 3-3 tie. Johnson, who singled home two runs in the first inning, sent the' Reds back into a 4-3 lead with a sacrifice fly in the fourth. The Pittsburgh Pirates made it two in a row over the San Francisco Giants, 5-2, and the Chicago Cubs scored a 3-1 victory over the world. champion St. Louis Cardinals, .in other National League games. In the American League, Chicago downed Baltimore 5-3, Detroit beat Kansas City 11-4 and Cleveland defeated Los Angeles 7-1. ' I Tried In 1964 Perez was brought up by the Reds near the end of the 1964 season after hitting 34 homers, driving in 107 runs and batting 309 in 124 games for San Diego but made only two hits in 25 tries for an .080 average. He started out in 1960 with Geneva in i the New York-Pennsylvania League and won the league batting title with a .348 mark the following season. Relief pitcher Al McBean got Tom Hallef to hit into a double play and struck out Ed Bailey with two on and none out in the ninth inning to preserve Bob; Friend's victory for the Pi d shut out theETAOETAO. rates. Friend shut out the GiarUs until Willie Mays bit a two-run homer in the eighth, Dick Schofield and Bill Virdon had two hits each for the Pirates. Bob Buhl yielded five hits andi made only 86 pitches as the Cubs again foiled Red Schoendjenst's hopes of winning his first game as a manager of the Cardinals. Rookie shortstop Bobby Pena, up from Asheville of the Southern League where he hit .303 with 14 homers, hit his second homer of the season and scored a second run for the Cubs. Curt Simmons suffered the loss. Major League Standings -- By United Press International National League W. L. Pet.

But one fellow says please hold on a minute—he might just do it himself this year. That's a pretty tall order and ordinarily might evoke nothing more than a polite yawn except for the fact 25-year-old Lou Brock has a way of accomplishing things which few people would believe possible. He was, for example, the first man ever to hit a ball into the right-hand side of the distant centerfield bleachers at the old Polo Grounds in New York and had as much as anyone else to do'with leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a Na tional League pennant after coming over to them from the Chicago Cubs last June. "I feel I have the tools to hit .400," says the wiry left- handed hitting outfielder from El Dorado, Ark., who collected five hits in his first 11 times up this season. Been Done Before "They say it can't be done but it has been done before and there really is no reason it can't be done again. The next .400 hitter will have to have speed and hit the-ball all around. I mean to all fields. "I think I fit into both those categories. If I can cut down my strikeout total quite a bit, I honestly think I have a chance to hit .400. I'm certainly going to try. What have I got to lose" Brock, a rather, qu_"et, well- mannered individual, is anything" but a popoff. He doesn't volunteer his - opinions unless someone solicits them and then he simply expresses those he honestly feels. Even though he no longer is connected with the Cardinals, Yankee manager Johnny Keane insists the turning point of the 1964 season for his old club came on June 15 when it obtained Brock from the Cubs for pitchers Ernie Broglio and Bobby Shantz and outfielder Doug Clemens. Jumped Up Average Brock was hitting a modest .251 at the time. He bludgeoned the ball at a tremendous .348 pace thereafter and finished the season at .315. "There was a lot of criticism of that- deal at the time," Brock recalls. "Most everyone said the Cardinals got the short end of it. There was a feeling they gave up too much. I'm not blind and I'm not deaf. I read it and I heard it. I wanted to make some people eat their (Coninued on page 8) STANDARD OIL ANNOUNCES THE APPOINTMENT OF DAN STAHLY AS STANDARD OIL AGENT IN TIPTON DAN'S PLEDGE TO ALL CUSTOMERS QUALITY PRODUCTS AMERICAN GASOLINES—COMPLETE LINE MOTOR OIL AND LUBRICANTS . v " AMERICAN PREMIER DIESEL FUEL-^AMERICAN HEATING OILS IJ^ A-G CHEMICALS DEPENDABLE SERVICE FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE 1 is My Business OS 5-4202 TIPTON I wish to tike this opportunity to thank my miny friends and customers for having had the privelage of serving you for the past many years.

DAVE COVERDALE Lakers Win West Playoff By United Press International The Los Angeles Lakers, newly-crowned Western Division champions of the National Basketball Association, now are trying to use their influence to affect the outcome of the Eastern race. Los Angeles won the Western Division playoff by beating the Baltimore Bullets • 117-115 Tuesday night, and immediately came out with a unanimous vote for the 'Philadelphia 76ers to beat the Celtics in the decisive game of the Eastern series at Boston Thursday night. The 76ers evened [their best- of-seven playoff with a 112-106 decision over the j Celtics at Philadelphia Tuesday night. The eventual Eastern survivor will meet the Lakers in another best-of-seven series to decide the NBA champion. Jerry West, who has been the difference for the Laker's in the playoffs, scored 42 points Tuesday for' a series totalj of 278. He received ample help in the finale from Dick Barnett, who hit on 13 of 22 field |goal at- temps and finished with 31 points. Baltimore got off to a 30-20 first quarter" lead,' but a three- point play by West late in the third period put the Lakers ahead for good at 72-69. Don Ohl kept the Bullets in contention but even his 34 points weren't enough to halt Los Angeles. Wilt Chamberlain led all scorers at Philadelphia with 30 points and then predicted the 76ers had a fairly easy time evening the series, breaking away to a 15-point advantage after the first half and then staving off a late Celtic threat. Tom Sanders paced Boston with 25 points. All will be decided at Boston Thursday night, and the Celtics have beaten Philadelphia '15 straight times on their home court. But 76er Coach Dojph Schayes refused to sound worried. "We're convinced the (Boston) Garden isn't a jinxed court," he said. "It's just like any other court — 94 feet by 50 feet." (Coninued on page 8) Matt Hart of Tipton-Elwood radio station WBMP called us yesterday morning for an afternoon appointment to talk over the major league baseball race Since we are still hepped up over Don Curnutt making the Indiana All Star team we had to intro duce that into the tape-recording which was -put on the air at 6 p.m. last evening and was aired once later and again today. We called Merlin Harlow, president of the 'Boosters Club and he said he had been promised 500 tickets for the Butler Fieldhouse game and will-notify us as soon as they are received and distributed for sale. University of Georgia, rolled out the red carpet for Don last weekend, providing a new convertible for Don and Dick Mcintosh, nowa freshman at that school, to tour the campus and surrounding area. Don has five schools remaining on his itener­ ary and it'll be interesting to see them trying to outdo each other in the deluxe treatment. Don; however, is sensible enough to take a look at what really counts, and know once, he's enrolled there, there is no convertible goes with the course. Slept Through It Don's plane had a rough air trip returning, landing nearly an hour and a half late due to detouring for the Sunday night storms, but the imperturbable eager slumped in his seat and slept through all the turbulance. Don reports at noon Wednesday, June 9th, for the start of the all star practice sessions. The first game is June 19th at Butler Fieldhouse and the second June 26 at Louisville. • ilncidently, the Tribune ran off additional copies of the folder, showing the photo and accomplishments of Curnutt during his varsity career, and any one who didn't get copies can do so now at the front desk of the Tribune. This is the folder which was mailed all Indiana sports writers and broadcasters prior to their voting on the all star team. Interested In Yo-Yo A note in the morning mail from.Johnny Pont of I.U., indicates he is interested in Tipton's all conference end - halfback quarterback Bill Moore. Says he had all "32 "tenders" he's allowed in the mail before -Moore was called to his attention but that some .of. them have been sent to boys who also have tenders from other NCAA schools and he does not expect all to be accepted so is writing coach John Moses for films of Yo-Yo and is also asking T.H.S. for a trans- script of his academic • record. We're convinced the husky young Tiptonite is good enough to make it in one of' the larger schools and want to see him have the opportunity. Moore also has been given a strong plug to both the University of Utah and to Utah State. Heartbreaking Scene Perhaps it has no place in a sports column, but having just returned from a photographic tour of the Greentown disaster area, we can't clear our mind of the devastation wrought in that community by Sunday night's tornado. National Guardsmen block access to the stricken area to a IF except those having business in the" area, but to those who can get close enough to see .it, the destruction is almost beyond belief. A two block wide area running west from State road 213 to Eastern High School shows practically nothing left standing. It resembles nothing so much;. as levelled towns through which we passed in Germany during World War II after allied bombers had prepared the way for. advancing infantry columns. In a story yesterday Tri Kappa sorority requested clothing contributions for disaster victims, and elsewhere in today's Tribune the Civil Band Radio Club announces donation of food and calls for additional contributions. We can only add our own plea to respond to the call from those organizations to aid these - truly needy victims of nature. Wide selection Easter candy. Filled eggs, boxed assorted.
