clones Gave H.K. Some Happy Moments By CONRAD DOWNING Last week, Ottawa coach H. K. Stevens made his last entry hi the IMS basketball book and checked 1 in the equipment of his two stalwart seniors, Harry Morton and Roy Dunn, a pair that carried the major scoring load for the Reds all season long. Morton pumped in a 16.9 average while Dunn hit for 12.7 points per game. During an interview after his squad eased by the Fort Scott Tigers ir the Shawnee Mission North regionals, 41-40, for third place, Stevens reflected upon the past year and the happy moments. "We had two established players in Morton and Dunn," said H. K. as he walked to work off the excess energy. "They were a couple of good seniors. We lost two of the first three ball games, and things looked bad for us." Ottawa failed in two bouts, the Chamrte and Lawrence games, but racked Emporia for a 1-2 record as the Reds entered the EKL tournament at Christmas time. "The tournament was one of the highlights of the season. We found Ronnie Mendell in the tourney, and he played on the first five for the rest of the year," nodded Stevens about his sophomore phenom. Mendell scored 23 points in the opening tourney game and helped the Reds take the EKL tournament trophy and the .league title. Stevens picked the win over Lawrence, after the Lions had shellacked his quintet on the Ottawa hardwoods. It took an overtime for the Cyclones to eke out a 49-47 win to gain a state ranking As the coach recalled the other game he considered a bright spot in the long 21-game sched ule, he couldn't help but feel elated about the comeback of his warriors. "The kids really wanted to whip the Leavenworth Pioneers, and they played well in a comeback victory after having lost to ^ GOOD YEAR FOR THEM — Coach H.K.

(Ottawa High Photo) League and EKL tournament. Kneeling, from left, are Ronnie them on their home court. Leavenworth won half of its games and should have won more. They had a good ball club," admitted the Ottawa coach. Morton, Dunn and Mendell all finished the season with a solid average, Mendell with 12.7. Mendell broke a school record, points scored by a sophomore, as he tallied 229 to start a challenge of Bob Lewis' 1,050 set two seasons ago. Lewis, an all-state choice, holds the current 3-season scoring record and was the holder of the sophomore record of 184. Jim Lewis, long expected to shoot his way into the starting rotation finally gave some indication that he was about ready to assume a major role in Ottawa's plan for winning. The lean junior scored 147 points this season for a 7.0 average but also was the third high reoounder on the squad. Lewis' 105 caroms trailed Morton's 258 and Dunn's 165, but he was tough in the clutch during the latter part of the schedule. The fifth starter for the Reds was Eddie Davidson, a junior guard who constantly hustled and led the team in assists with 16 and stole the ball 24 times beside scoring 105 points during the year. Davidson's role in the scheme of things was to act as the team leader and direct the action. Al- though surrounded by players con stantly taller (Eddie's only 5-9), he made up for any deficiency by hustling. His running mate, Men dell, led the squad with 32 steals, but a few were a result of Davidson's deflections and, of course, the trick worked for Mendell as well. When Stevens talked of his pros pects for the coming season, three names were fast to flow. "Jim Lewis, Eddie David- •on and Ronnie Mendell, all returning lettermen, will be the experience. We'll have our "B" learn center, Earle Doman, who'll have to carry a big load next year, and Doug Schultz, who played a lot of varsity ball last season, "Terry Davis will be up as will Daryl Jameson, a fine shooting guard. Davis will give us some Fire power and height. Then we'll have Steve Queen, a hustler and tough competitor, plus an improving Jerry Turley. Turley played some varsity call and should be a leader next year." After Ifetening to that array of talent, one would wonder if he lost anyone. However, Stevens would be the first to admit the loss of some fine seniors in Morton, Dunn, Rick Winchester, Roger Ferguson and Ben Park. All five boys were with the club until the end of the season, but only Morton and Dunn played re gular. Winchester, a late season start er last year, and Park, a top "B" prospect from '62, ran into some tough competition for then* jobs and graciously made way for some top flight young talent. Both boys added experience and a steadying influence upon the youthful Cyclone ball club. Hefty Roger Ferguson spent most of his time in reserve of the indestructable Harry Morton and saw limited action but Stevens had one comforting thought, a suitable replacement was always there. Ferguson was the sixth high rebounder after the top five and was a workhorse for the Reds. The Cyclones finished the season with a 15-6 record and three trophies. A first place in the Eastern Kansas League tournament and first place in the league netted the Red-and-Whites a pair of trophies while a third place finish in the SM North regionals brought home a third. This is the most, trophy-wise, for the Reds and made this past season a memorable one. Ruth Carlson missed the magic '600 dub" by a single pin last night. But her 599 series, with 200203-196, was the best on four eague fronts, men and women. Vith Virginia Hoffman chipping n a neat 520, Ruth's team, Peo>les National Bank, posted a 314 team series and beat Moore's Chevrolet, 4-0. Moore's loss allowed Wright's tudio, which lost 3-1 to Towner's, o add a point to its lead over the Chevrolet girls. Wright's record is 82-30; Moore's 71%-40V&. Ruth Mock led the Towner's girls with a 508 series. Margaret Cady rolled a trip, licate, 135-135-135, for Meadow Gold, 4-0 winner over Kansas State Bank. On the men's side, Bienie's Garage and Body Shop scored a 2613 series and a 4-0 Shutout over Bob's Clothes in the Twilight Guessing Over Irish Coaching SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP)-Joe Kuharich's resignation as Notre Dame head football coach kicks off one of college football's all- time guessing games. Kuharich's resignation was announced by the university Wednesday and at the same time freshman coach Hugh Devore was named "interim coach for 1963." As to Kuharich's ultimate successor, that will be tossed around until possibly after the 1963 season and no name probably will be more prominent than that of Duffy Daugherty of M i c h i g a n State. Kuharieh quit to take a job with the National Football League as supervisor of NFL officials, replacing Mike Wilson, who is retiring at 66: The 46-year-old Kuharieh, with four years to run on his present contract, had a 17-23 record at Notre Dame after succeeeding Terry Brennan in 1958. Devore, 52, has bounced around from Notre Dame to other col leges back to Notre Dame to professional coaching and again back to Notre Dame for 30 years. He also served as interim coach in 1945 and came up with a 7-2-1 record. "Interim coach, that's exactly what it means," said Devore. "I have no designs on the main job. After all, I've been coaching for .0 years. I'm here to help out and Kuharieh suggested I take over. My job as freshman coach will not change." Under Kuharieh, who formerly coached the Chicago Cardinals and Washington Redskins in the NFL, Notre Dame had a 5-5 record last year which was not too bad considering the Irish played one of the toughest schedules in the country. THE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, March 14, 1963 Kansas-Missouri Showdown In NAIA KANSAS CITY (AP)-Rockhurst and Fort Hays (Kan.) State clash on a quarterfinal National Intercollegiate tournament basketball game tonight, but a lot of fans will be looking on the game as an unofficial playoff for the NAIA championship of Missouri and Kansas. . Rockhurst, seeded No. 6 in the tournament, played hot and cold against Alliance (Pa.) before win- Fight To Keep Maroons Out STATE COLLEGE, Miss. (AP) —Die-hard segregationists fighting to the last ditch got a court order Wednesday banning Mississippi State's basketball team from playing in the NCAA Tournament. But a spokesman for the school said the Maroons hadn't received official notice, and had no plans of calling off their trip to Jhe tournament. A source close to the State College Board indicated another court order—from another judge- may be forthcoming, dissolving the order banning Mississippi State's participation in the tournament. The team was scheduled to fly today to East Lansing, Mich., and the Maroons' Friday night date with Loyola of Chicago. Four of Loyola's starting five are Negroes. Chancery Court Judge L. B. Porter of Union granted the temporary injunction at the request of State Sen. Billy Mitts, an outspoken foe of Mississippi State's hopes of repealing the "unwritten law" prohibiting athletic competition with Negroes. The State College Board approved State's participation in the tourney. The board is the governing body for all of Mississippi's institutions of higher learning. B.O.W. EXPRESS, Inc.

(AP)—Ryne Duren, whose fast ball sometimes leaves hitters looking almost as blind as he is, moves from the American to the National League today. And if Manager Bill Rigney of the Los Angeles Angels is right, the National Leaguers "are about to see something special." The Angels sold the weak-eyed, 34-year-old relief pitcher to the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday for slightly more than the $20,000 waiver price. Rigney said it was "one of the toughest decisions I ever had to make." "I have enjoyed this fellow," Rigney said, "and I respected his ability. He's been a big part of the fine spirit of this club." Last season Duren had a 2-9 record and a 4.44 earned run average but he was wild. ning 64-53 Wednesday night in the second round. Fort Hays, ranked only No. 15 in the seedings, pulled the biggest surprise of the week, bouncing out Augsburg 82-71. Augsburg was seeded No. 2, just behind the ligh - flying Grambling ( La.) Tigers. Fort Hays trailed the Minnesota team only once and got 25, 24 and 23 points repectively from Herb Stange, John Channel! and Jerold McDowell. Rockhurst and Fort Hays didn't meet during the regular season, but one of Rockhurst's three losses this year was to Pittsburg (Kan.) State, a team that bowed the following night to Fort Hays. Another mutual foe, Pan American of Edinburg, Tex., lost to Rockhurst, then beat Fort Hays. Tonight's meeting (8:30 p.m. CST) between Rockhurst and Fort Hays is the first 'time since 1946 that Missouri and Kansas teams have met in the NAIA tournament. Grambling, top-seeded and the champion here in 1961, had all it could handle last night with little Athens College of Alabama. With four minutes left Athens led 43-42. Athens, unseeded and a college of 400 students with only a practice gymnasium, had swapped the lead with Grambling almost every time the ball changed hands in the first 36 minutes. Then the spirited Alabamans collapsed, Grambling scored 14 points and the game was over 56-45. Grambling's foe tonight is Carson-Newman of Jefferson, Tenn., winner Wednesday over Indiana State 70-63.

The self-proclaimed "greatest heavyweight" is just human after all. There were no knockouts, no knockdowns, no "total annihilation," and brash Cassius was lucky to get a thin, lustily booed decision in 10 rounds over hardworking Doug Jones of New York at Madison Square Garden Wednesday night. At times Clay looked like a novice both at long range and inside. His bombs didn't explode. And he bad to rally furiously in the final two rounds to capture the unanimous verdict. As for Listen, Clay is no more ready for him this year than Floyd Patterson was in the second minute of his title debacle last Sept. 25. Yet the undaunted Clay said he wanted that "big, ugly bear Listen within six months." "Clay showed me that I'll get locked up for murder if we're ever matched," was the comment of Listen who saw the closed circuit telecast in Miami Beach.
