A Complete Line Of PRATT & LAMBERT Paints and Varnishes NUZMAN LUMBER 113 E. 1st CH 2-1572 Panthers To Play Sylvia Thursday By A. I. VAN CLEAVE MELVERN — Come Saturday night, if the Melvern Panthers are in the State Class BB finals, there'll be more Melvern people at podge City than there ever were Texas cattle drivers. Many of this Osage County town's 413 people (assessors' count), and their rural enigh- bors, will be on hand in Dodge's Municipal Auditorium Thursday afternoon when Coach Gene Otis' Panthers take the floor against Sylvia in an opening game of the State Class BB Tournament. Melvern School Supt. Arlon told The Herald Melvern students and parents had taken over Dodge's Thunderbird Motel, with 83 reservations. This doesn't include the coach and 10 players who will be staying at the Silver Spur Motel. And it doesn't include other Panther followers who will be driving back and forth or who have made their own arrangements for lodging- Melvern Mayor J. W. Dick- Peddie said a bus will be chartered for a trip to Dodge Saturday if the Panthers are in the finals. They'll only hav2 to beat Sylvia Thursday to be in the finals, either for the title or for third place. There'll be no school at Melvern Thursday and none Friday if the Panthers beat Sylvia. Coach Otis and his top ten: Wayne Cranwell, Bob Criss, Jim Lacey, Dale Mochamer, Harry Geier. John Gilbson, Dennis Haworth, Ray Patterson, Bob Burnett and Bill Kramer, left Melvern at 7 a.m. this morning for the long ride to Dodge. The Panthers worked out yesterday afternoon at Emporia to get some experience in a larger gym. Coach Otis said all the boys are well, and Superintendent Bryson said the team and students are really "up" for the occasion. They'll be out to duplicate in Class BB what they did last year in Class B, bring the first-place state trophy back to add to the crowded trophy rases in the high school halls. But Coach Otis and the Panthers face a tough fight, and they know it. Sylvia was in the state Class BB tournament last year and has nearly every man back. Still, Otis appeared unusually optimistic on the eve of the Panther's departure "We have a chance," he said, "if we play our best." Otis will start the five boys who took the floor in the regional final at Greeley against Fulton: Cranwell; Lacey, Criss, Haworth and Geier. all seniors except sophomore Geier. This is the tallest five Melvern has, and they range in height from Haworth's 6 feet, 2V& inches to Geier's 5 feet, 11. Dale Mochamer, a small junior guard and a good ball handler, and Geier will be interchangeable Melvern fans who do not go to Dodge will be able to listen to the game on Ottawa Radio Station KOFO, AM, Thursday afternoon and FM Friday and Saturday nights if Melvern makes the semi-finals and finals. Here's the schedule at Dodge: Thursday — Corning vs. Portis at 2 p.m.; Melvern vs. Sylvia at 3:30; Durham vs. Prairie View at 7:30, and Rozel vs. Dwight at 9. Semi-finals will be at 7:30 and 9 p.m. Friday, and finals at the same hours Saturday. Claim Owner Bet Against His Team e/ MIAMI, Fla. (AP)-Carroll D. Rosenbloom, owner of the Baltimore Colts, has been accused in federal court of betting $55,000 against his own team in a 1953 National Football League game. Rosenbloom's own lawyer put the accusation on the record Tuesday in an attempt to have ex-gambler Mike McLaney, of Miami Beach, who made the deposition three years ago, cited Top Charlton Scorer In Big 8 By JIN VAN VALKENBURG Associated Press Sports Writer Colorado's Ken Charlton won the Big Eight individual basket- jail scoring crown despite knee xoubles with a 10.2 average — owest winning mark in 14 years— but the conference had more 200- point men than last season. Charlton came through with 20 Mints, all in the last 26 minutes, o lead Colorado's big 69-56 vic- ory at Kansas State. It was his best game since he hurt his knee against Kansas Feb. 9 and put he co-champion Buffs into the 4CAA playoffs for the seventh ime in school history. The 6-foot-6 Charlton was runner-up last season as a junior with a 19.3 mark, as Jerry Gardner of Kansas won with 20.2, owest winning average since Claude Retherford of Nebraska won with 12.4 in 1949. Only six players scored 200 or more points, compared to 10 this season. Willie Murrell, 6-6 Kansas State junior, was runner-up with 263 points, six less than Charlton, for an 18.8 average. The other 200- 3oint men, in order, were: George Unseld, 6-7 Kansas sophomore, 17.1; little Eddie Evans of Oklahoma, 16.4; Larry Hawk, Oklahoma State sophomore, 16.2; [lay Bob Carey of Missouri, 15.9; Stolen Ellison, Kansas senior, a 20-point man for the second straight year, 15.4; Vince Brewer, Iowa State senior, 15.3; Marv Straw of Iowa State, 14.6; and Bob Price of Missouri, 14.4. Next were Daryl Petsch, Ne- araska, 14.2; Harvey Chaffin, Oklahoma, 13.4; Ken Doughty, Missouri, 13.3; Milt Mueller, Colorado, 13.2; and Gary Marriott, Kansas State, 12.8 for criminal contempt. He said the charge was a vicious and outrageous lie. But Judge George C. Young threw out the contempt motion, emphasizing that he was not ruling on the truth or falsity of the accusation. Also made public Tuesday were three affidavits in which McLaney's associates swore that Rosenbloom was a big bettor. National Football League regulations forbid betting by players or owners. Robert J. McGravey, once a Philadelphia detective, declared that he was Rosenbloom's personal assistant from 1951 to 1954 and that he had often placed bets for him. Richard Melvin, an investor, said in his affidavit, "I distinctly remember that during one professional season he made nine straight winning best on professional football games." Larry E. Murphy, onetime McLaney chauffeur, swore, "I particularly remember that in 1953 when his team was playing against the 49ers on the coast, Rosenbloom bet a large amount of money against his own team, and because of the point spread, won the bet." The affidavits, made in connection with a stock deal suit in 1960, were sealed and the suit was dismissed by Federal Judge Joseph Laeb Jan. 5, 1981. IN THE BAG, WE HOPE - Melvern Mayor J. W. Dick-Peddie flashes sign of eonfloVnc* with his thoughts, as are those of all Melvern people today, on State Class BB Tournament at Dodge City. Melvern Panthers will meet Sylvia at 3:30 p.m. Thursday in preliminaries. On wall behind Dick-Peddie are trophies won this season by Panthers. Would Keep Texans In Dallas DALLAS (AP) - Plans for selling 25,000 season tickets in an attempt to keep the Dallas Texans of the American Football League from moving to Kansas City were announced Tuesday. Despite the fact that Lamar Hunt, owner of the Texans, has said he was committed to move the Texans to Kansas City il 25,000 season tickets were sold there by May 15, BUI Simpson, chairman of a committee formed "to save the Texans," declared that a campaign would be launched here to sell the tickets by April 10—five days before the Kansas City drive begins. Simpson said his committee hoped to forestall the Kansas City drive. He said that escrow accounts have been opened to receive donations and season ticket orders. The committee includes many members of the Spur Club, a Texan booster organization. Jim Nichols, president of the club, said it was an independent effort and as such, must be financed by donated funds. "All payments on season tickets will be returned in the event the drive is not successful," he said.
