if PAGE 4 THETrPTGN PAH.Y TRIBUNE Thursday, Ap"l>5,l96S We've been trying to compile a list of season-bests in the Central Indiana Conference to give contestants and fans an idea of what to expect when the eight schools get together here in Tipton the night of April 30 for the CIC championships. We haven't seen any performances turned in by- either Wabash or Muncie Burris but of the other six schools strength seems fairly well distributed. Goldberg of Hartford City and Rumbaugh of Tipton have the best times in the 100 yard dash, each having turned in 10.8 clockings. In the 220, Tipton sophomore Louie Guenther leads with 24.1. "Tulton of Huntington has the 440 mark with 53.6 and another Huntington boy has the best half mile, 2:06.2 Cantrell. ^Tipton has the top hurdle efforts, Kim Hand having the season best in the low hurdles with 21.3 while Bill Moore and Hand both have 15.7 clockings in the high hurdles, Moore turning the feat twice. Lex Boyd's toss of 49'11%" is the best shot put mark in the CIC while John Burton of Elwood has the best pole vault mark of 12'6«>". Greg Hammond of Peru Tuesday set a new standard in the broad jump that we doubt if anyone else is going to come close to when he leaped 22'lVi". Lex Boyd's 5'8" is the equal of anything else cleared in the high jumpland Tipton's 1:38.3 in the half mile relay was duplicated Tuesday by Hartford City EAT WITH US on Easter Sunday Have your FAMILY in our recently remodeled.

Title Tonight BOSTON (UPI) —Bill Russel's long championship domination of rival giant Wilt Chamberlain reaches a new climax tonight when they collide for the 89th time in National Basketball Association play. Russell, the shot-blocking, rebounding keystone of the Boston Celtics' seven playoff crowns in the last eight years, hes been an almost continous champion as a schoolboy, collegian, Olympian and professional. • Chamberlain, the scoring and rebounding star on which the Philadelphia 76ers base their championship hopes, has never played for a team that captured a major crown. Russell carries a 59-29 professional edge' of Chamberlain tonight when the two lead their teams.into the seventh and final game of their Eastern Division playoffs. Philadelphia's 112-106 win on Tuesday night sent the series into the final game deadlocked at three victories apiece. The teams will be clashing before a 14th successive capacity playoff crowd at Boston Garden for the right to meet Los Angeles in .the best-of-seven championship playoffs starting on national television Sunday afternoon. The Lakers clinched their title showdown right by eliminating Baltimore on Tuesday night after the Bullets had taken St. Louis out of post-season play. The 76ers shaped up as something of a Cinerella team, their height, might and muscle notwithstanding. Schayes' club, which split even with Boston during the regular season, had been an underdog against the Cincinnati Royals in the preliminary playoffs. But that didn't keep them from knocking the Royals out. Several from the community gathered at Goldsmith church recently for a general house cleaning to prepare the church for. the annual Easter breakfast and program. The old Magnet* home in Goldsmith, a large r two story house just north of the Goldsmith elevator which was purchased by Robert Baumgartner was recently torn down. It was an bid landmark. Charles Park, administrator of the estate of his late father Frank 'Park, with his wife Pat were in Goldsmith from LaGrange recently arranging for a public sale of personal property of his deceased father.

By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK UPI)—Warren Spahn's face was as white as freshly laundered linen and somehow he looked pale and piqued despite an eight-week Florida suntan. This was 20 minutes before game time and the near-bald, 43-year-old lefthander had just emerged from the trainer's room where he had undergone a rubdown before making his first official start for the New York Mets. Spahn was about to pitch the 715th game of his major league career but in some ways he acted as if this was to be his first. "Nervous?" someone asked.. Spahn glanced up at the clubhouse clock which said 1:43 p.m., kept buttoning his shirt and did not reply right away. Feels Something "It's getting near post time," he said, finally. "You always evrolet workpower "walks" right over bumps and trouble Independent front suspension takes the "truck" out of truck ride.

I don't know what you' it exactly but it's like a flighty feeling inside." The radio in the Mets' clubhouse had been turned on and the announcer was reeling off some pre-game facts. "... Spahn had rough going with Milwaukee last season, winning only six games and losing 13 " The veteran southpaw couldn't help hearing that doleful statistic and started to say "Aw, now don't. . ." but thought better of it and nqver finished the sentence. ".. ..And during his life-time, he has won 20 or more games 13 different times.. ." "Now that's much better," Spahn smiled, reaching into his locker for his navy blue windbreaker. He cradled the jacket over his left arm and started walking toward the clubhouse door on his way to the dugout and the field. Gets Off Quip "See you around the campus, fellas," he quipped to a few of his Met teammates who were sitting around a table autographing baseballs. "Go get 'em, Spahnie," called back relief pitcher Larry Bearnarth. Spahn walked out the door and down the wooden catwalk all by himself, return i n g through that same door nearly three hours later- after Houston had defeated the Mets, 7-B, in 11 innings. During those three hours, Spahn had pitched hitless ball for 4-2-3 innings and left the game with the score tied 3-3 in the eighth. "I was happy at the way I pitched the first four innings," he said, "but hell, that's what I'm being paid to do. The only mistake I made all day was that change-up curve I threw to (Jim) Beauchamp in the fifth inning. "Damn, I wish we'd have won," he said. "Not so. much for me as for the ball club. "We'll .be back, though. Wait and see. And just remember old Spahnie told you so." Yanks Suffer Second Straight Loss To Angels By CURT BLOCK | UPI Sports Writer I It's a new year with new' faces and what 's happening is sort of different. /It's not at all what Yankee Manager Johnny Keane thought he was getting himself into when he joined the American League champs. jThe tone of Wednesday night 's game was set early when rookie Angel outiielder Jose Cardenal led off the botA torn of the first with his first major league home run off veteran Whitey Ford. The Angels wound up pounding four New York hurlers for 12 hits and a 4-3 triumph —'the Bombers second straight one-run loss. With Cy Young Award . dinners Whitey -Ford and Dean Chance opposing each other as starters, you 'd look for a pitchers' battle but it just so happened that neither was around when the seventh inning began. i Ford was yanked in the sixth in favor of loser Hal Reniff and Chance, the major 's No. 1 pitcher in 19S4, was lifted in the same inning for a pinchhitter. | Brunet Gets Win i George Brunei, a 29-year-old lefthander whose major league career dates back to 1956 and shows a total of six victories, came on in the seventh and worked his way out of a ninth- inning bases loaded situation by fanning pinch swinger Phil Linz to receive credit for the win. | Shortstop Jim Fregosi, the Angels leading hitter in '64, nailed down the victory in the seventh when he doubled home Cardenal, who collected four hits, and Willie Sr.::'.h, who added three. ; In other American League games, Baltimore whitewashed Chicago 6-0, and Washington de : feated Boston 6-4. Cleveland at Kansas City and Detroit at Minnesota were both rained out. | In the National League, Los Angeles beat Pittsburgh 3-1 behind the two-hit pitching of Claude Osteen, San Francisco registered a 5-2 triumph over •Philadelphia, Houston edged past New York 7-6 in 11 innings, and Chicago defeated St. Louis 7-3. Milwaukee and Cincinnati were idle. i Stops Sox Cold • Oriole" righthander Milt Pappas, who bypassed an opening day 'assignment because of a sore elbow, stopped the White Sox cold on six hits! A 16-game winner last season, Pappas whiffed four and didn 't walk a man as the Pale Hose failed to place two men on base in the same frame. John Orsino and Norm Siebern, who had poor seasons last year, led the Baltimore attack, with two hits apiece. Pappas |was supported by a''stout Oriole defense that executed four double plays.

Dodgers Win Again; Wills Steals Three By CURT BLOCK UPI Sports Writer Claude Osteen is thinking positive and so are the Los Angeles Dodgers. The 25-year-old southpaw was obtained by the Dodgers from Washington in the Frank Howard trade when the status of Sandy Koufax became painfully doubtful. Osteen's initial contribution to the Los Angeles "cause Wednesday night was a route going, two-hit, 3-1 victory over Pittsburgh that had even Koufax' ' beaming and gave the Dodgers -their second complete game in two starts. . The former Washington lefty, who won 15 games for the Senators last year and credits ex- Manager Gil Hodges with teaching him to think positive ly and for his consequent improvement, fanned eight and had his . bid for a shutout spoiled by Bob Bailey's homer with two away in the ninth. Wills Steals Three While Osteen rested on the bench between innings, shortstop Maury Wills continued his daring base running antics, copping three more stolen bases for a, total of five in two games and got caught in a run down that precipitated the first fight of the - infant season. The newly appointed Dodger captain,' who has vowed to steal early and often and break his own base seatling record of 104, reached base in the fifth inning after being hit by a Joe Gibbon pitch. Biggon, the Pirates losing pitcher, had Wills picked off base moments later and in an effort to: reach second base he barreled into Pittsburgh shortstop Dick Schofield. The two exchanged words briefly • and started throwing punches. As usual, order was restored quickly, no one was injured and no one was ejected. Fairly Homers Ron Fairly gave Osteen all the support he needed when he homered deep to ; right following rookie Jim Lefebvre's in ning-opening double in the fifth In other National League games,- San-'-Francisco topped Philadelphia 5-2, Hbuston edged New York in 11 innings 7-6 and Chicago defeated St. Louis 7-3. Milwaukee and Cincinnati were idle. In the American League Washington, beat Boston 6-4, Baltimore blanked Chicago 6-0 and Los Angeles tripped New York 4-3. Cleveland and Kansas were rained out as were Minnesota and Detroit. , Willie Mays' second homer in two days and seven hits by the Alou brdthers, Matty and Jay, helped the Giants to their victory. Mays' roundtripper, a 450 foot blast off loser Jim Bunning came in the third after Matty Alou reached base on one of his three singles. Gaylord Per ry got the Twin with relief help from Bob Shaw. Wes Covington's homer in the sixth accounted for both Phillie runs. Withstood Rally Houston scored four unearned runs in the 11th inning and then withstood a Met rally that netted three. The Astros fashioned the winning runs on a bunt single, four walks, two wild pitches by loser Larry Bearnarth, two errors and Al Spangler's steal of home.. Astro • righthander Dick Farrell went 10-1-3 innings and got the victory. Veteran Warren Spahn, making his debut as a Met. went eight innings, giving up seven hits, three runs and striking out three, before being pulled for a pinchrunner. Ron Santo socked two • home runs and George Altman added one as lefty Dick Ellsworth went all the way against St. Louis. Lou Brock powered a home run for the Cardinals and Ken Boyer contributed four hits in a losing effort.
