PAGE 4 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Monday; A|&ni9; 1965 Tipton Second as Moore Sets New Hurdles Standard Kokomo dethroned Hichmond and Noblesville retained its crown in Class A and iB running of the Muncie Belays Saturday afternoon; but Tipton's Blue Devils gave the Millers a lot closer chase than expected before coach Dale Snelling's crew pulled out the championship in the B competition. II The Class A title was decided • with the performance of two ""boys on the Kokomo squad in •the final running event of the "program, the sprint medley relay, Rick Hutchins and Dave Wright. In this race the first boy runs 440 yards, the next two each" 220 yards and the anchor man another 440. Kokomo entered the race with a 4 '/2 point lead over Richmond and needed at least a second place to win, if Richmond captured the final race. Kokomo was in second place, running hard on the heels of Richmond when Hutchins pulled a leg muscle on the curve halfway through his 220-yard effort. iFor an instant it appeared he would have to pull up but the husky youngster "gutted" it out, limping gamely for at least 100 yards to his anchor man Dave Wright to hand off the baton well behind Richmond but barely holding off a Muncie Central runner for third place. Wright, who had just started his track •work two weeks ago against Tipton, after a strep throat kept him out of early practice, quickly drew away from the Muncie anchor man and threw his baton high in the air as he crossed the finish line for the second place that gave his team the championship after a three-year Richmond reign. Lost by Nine Tipton had a 45-45 tie with Noblesville with just three events to go on the program,: but Noblesville won the sprint medley and the pole vault, while Tipton failed to place in either the pole vault or the broad . jump and Noblesville pulled out to win 54-45. The Millers definitely had the best of it in the relay races, winning all four of them. Tipton finished second in the half- mile relay and the sprint nied- ley, and third in the two mile relay, tout using two sophomores and a junior, along with one senior, were unplaced in the mile relay. Record Mile Senior Dick Heron raced a 59 second first quarter to take a long early lead in the mile run, and finished in 4:34.4, knocking nearly six seeonds off his best previous time this season, but had to settle for third place when Tom Clark of Noblesville and Glendening, of Muncie Burris nailed him on the final lap with Clark setting a new record for class B competition in 4:30.7, nearly five second faster than thte Class A winner. The time broke the 4:33.1 set by Tipton's Arcy Garmon as a junior in 1958. Steve Mullin, the husky Noblesville senior and football ace, gave Noblesville another assist when he took first place in the 100 yard dash, but Jim Rumbaugh finishing second for Tipton and sophomore Louie Guenther taking, fourth, offset all but one point of Mullin's finish in -that. Moore Sets Record .Tipton got its biggest hand from Bill Moore who swept both the. 120-yard high hurdles and the 180 yard low hurdles, and from teammates Kim'Hand who took second place in "both those events for a combined total of 16 of Tipton's 45 points. Moore, the defending CIC champion in the high hurdles, set a new all time Tipton record in his specialty, running the highs in 15.2 seconds to erase the 15.3 standard he set one year ago. Lex Boyd gave the Blue Devils another boost in the shot put when he won.that event with a toss of 49'1" and Tipton picked up points on the broad jump when Keith Smith took second place and Bill Grishaw third while the Millers had to settle for a one-point fourth place finish by John Weldy. Points in the individual competition were scored on a 5-3-2-1 'basis while in the relay races they were counted 8-5-3-2. Johnson of Noblesville set a new pole vault standard for Class B when he cleared 12'6" to better the old mark of 11' 9V4' set by Thacker of -Noblesville :last year. . Tom Hilligoss set a ne.w Class A standard in the shot put with j a heave of 59-feet, and Dave Wright, just rounding into the shape which made him the staters No. 2 half miler last year, 1 turned in a 1:59.6 clocking on ttiet anchor leg of the two mile relay which Kokomo also won. ': Record Disallowed Tipton's Kim Hand was clocked hi a 15-second flat when he won 'the first heat in the high hurdles elimination but the record was disallowed when offici- ials ruled he had too much of a helping hand from the wind at his back. The wind died down and later reversed itself in the meet. The Blue Devil trackmen have three meets oil tap this week, meeting the Logansport team at Logansport Tuesday then running at Peru Thursday before Itakrag part in the prized Kokomo Relays next Saturday. Kokomo Relays winners in all running and field events receive the prized bronze belt buckles and Tipton usually returns home with a fair share of them.

Left to right, Indianapolis Washington's Ralph Taylor, Tipton's Don Curnutt, Marion's Harold Curdy and Fort Wayne North's Dave Moser round out the starting five which will'join with Mr. Basketball Bill Keller of Indianapolis Washington, for the opening tipoff June 19 at Butler Fieldhouse against the Kentucky All Stars. Moser, Taylor, Curnutt, Curdy On All Stars INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) —Indiana high school basketball champion Indianapolis Washington placed two players in the starting lineup for this year's annual Indiana - Kentucky All- Star benefit games. Selection of the final fotfr players of the starting five was announced Saturday. The latest team members joined Washington's Bill Keller on the squad. Keller previously had been named "Mr. Basketbajl" as the No. 1 vote-getter in choosing the team. The latest additions to the squad included Dave Moser of Fort Wayne North, Ralph Taylor of Indianapolis Washington, Don Curnutt of Tipton and Harold Curdy of Marion. The two-game series, sponsored by The Indianapolis Star for its blind fund, will'open here June 19 in the Butler Fieldhouse. A return engagement will be played in Louisville June 26. The five starters are all under 6 feet, 5 inches tall, but they scored a combined average of 102 points per game during the past season. Leading scorer among the five was Curnutt, who swished in an average of 26.6 points a game as a senior and was named "player of the year" in the Central Conference. • Curdy compiled 1,488 points in varsity competition for Alar- ion, capping the performance with a 22.8 average per game last year .to win the North Central Conference scoring crown. He was the first four-year varsity player at Marion since World War II. Though he stands only 6-2, Taylor was best known as a rebounder for Washington's Continentals. He grabbed off 565 in his senior year last season, giving him 1,005 for his ca(Continued on page 6) WIN '50,000 CASH GRAND PRIZE IN 50U ANNIVERSARY SWEEPSTAKES You may win one of the 10,000 famous WST-OflDf TftAClV***' watchbands to be given away and $50,000 cash jetveier OiUIliu Advertised In Sunday's Indianapolis Star made it official that for the second year in a row Tipton's Blue Devils had placed a boy on the Indiana All Stars who will represent this state against the Kentucky All Stars at Butler Fieldhouse June 19 and at Freedom Hall in Louisville June 26. Don Curnutt wearing No. 4, (see above photo-) joins Dick Mcintosh with this distinction and his photo will be added to the T. H. S. Hall of Fame in the high school lobby to join those of Kenny Cage and Jim Ertel who were both members of the 1942 all star team from Indiana. Curnutt had to cancel his scheduled visit over the weekend to Michigan State after a phone call from that institution requested him to wait until they announce their- new basketball coach this coming Wednesday. They asked when he could reschedule the visit to meet their new coach and Don said "not before May 28", meaning he is already booked to visit other schools in the intervening weekends. That was a jolt to M. S. U. which expressed the opinion Don would get "confused" at all his visiting. (Don has been wearing an MSU sticker on the window of his car which probably means, no more than a bloke carrying a "Land of Taxes" license"' plate on his go-buggy). Kentucky Taller | Chances are 1 Kentucky will have a considerable height advantage on Indiana this year with Harold Curdy of Marion the state's tallest starter at 6"4 '.2" but look for Indiana's second five to add the needed height, when it is announced next Sunday. In the meantime, coach Angus Nicosin will probably count on speed land great shooting ability to offset Kentucky's size, as it did in the second game last yearJ | Jim Wilson, ! announcing the starting five oh television Saturday^ night, referred to Curnutt as "Indiana's top college prospect." Don's 26.6 scoring average this year, his 639 point total for the season and his 42 points in one game are jail topk for this year's \ all stars. At a practice session during the picture taking, Indianapolis Washington's Ralph Taylor exclaimed, "Man! Do you always hit like that?" ... as Don swished in about ten in a row from the corner. 1 i Hurdles Record Tipton finished second to defending champion Noblesville in the Muncie Relays Saturday but it took one of the Millers' greatest teams' to turn the trick. Going into the meet we had> no record of how strong a team Muncie Burris was fielding but the Owls' third place finish stamped them as a strong contender for the CIC championship which will be held here a week from this Friday. Jim Rumbaugh turned in a great 100 yard dash effort to beat Ron Peters of Burris' who is the only boy returned from the first five finishers in the 100 yard dash at last year's CIC meet. Tipton got a great big hand from Bill M«ore and Kim Hand in both hurdles with the two Blue Devils running 1-2 in both races, beating a fine Burris contender in sophomore Jim Hinga. Hand ran the fastest trial heat in the high hurdles when he eclipsed the former Muncie Relays record of 15.1 with a 15- second flat clocking but he had more than a 4Vi mile wind at his back during the funning and his record was not allowed by Muncie officials. Bill Moore, who won his heat in 15.4, came back in the finals to nip Hand for the first place medal with a 15.2 time that set a nrv Tipton High School record for the event. Tipton coach John Moses, who allows that it takes the big fellows more time to reach top shape, says he wouldn't be surprised to see Moore hit 15 flat or 14.9 before the season is over. Moore's, winning time of 15.2 Saturday equalled the same time established by Kokomo's Jim Barber in winning the 'Class A high hurdles. Both Moore and Hand may have their hands full tomorrow in a meet at Logansport in which Oak hill is also competing with a fine hurdler.

Ritz Insurance Agency Q$ Koufax Hurls Five Hitters at la By JOE GERGEN UPI Sports Writer To Sandy Koufax, the Philadelphia Phillies represent the finest wonder drug on the market, i The southpaw ace of the Los Angeles Dodgers staff, beset by a series of ailments throughout his career, always receives a tonic when he faces the Phils and Sunday was no exception. The 29-year-old Koufax, bothered by traumatic arthritis in his left elbow, filled his prescription, by setting .Philadelphia down on five hits for a 6-2 victory in his first starting role since last Aug. 16. j It was the ninth straight time Sandy had defeated the Phils dating back to 1961, and after the game, Koufax, whose starry pitching career has been threatened by the disease, reported he was "very pleased" with his performance. Dodgers Overjoyed If Sandy' was pleased, then the Dodgers were overjoyed because a reasonably healthy Koufax is almost a prerequisite for a Los Angeles run at the National League pennant, which the Dodgers won two se.asons ago crumbling to sixth in 1964. "I had good stuff, but not real good," Koufax said. "I hope 1 to get better." I The Dodger dazzler struck out seven and walked four. He surrendered a hit to lead-off man Cookie Rojas in the first inning, then held the Phillies hitless until the sixth . when Dick Stuart slammed a two-run homer. His control was not | as sharp as usual, but Sandy attributed that to his three-week enforced layoff during spring training. . j The important thing, as far as the Dodgers were concerned, however, was that Koufax suffered "no pain" during or after the game. Although it probably will not be known for days I or even weeks just what effect the condition will have on his pitching, the initial results were promising. i- Rookie second- baseman Jim Lefebvrc doubled/'tripled, drew two walks and drove in three runs to lead the Dodger attack against loser Bo Belinsky and three other Philadelphia hilrl- ers.

Tony is batting at a .533 clip and, though the Bosox have played only four games so far, the strapping right fielder who waved such a dangerous bat as a rookie last year has already tagged two home runs and has six RBI 's to his credit. One of those circuit smashes and three of those runs batted in sparked the Sox to an 11-4 blitz of the Baltimore Orioles Sunday.' Tony 's homer came as part of a four-run Bosox rally in the third inning and it sailed high.and far over the 325-foot mark at Fenway Park. He came back in the fourth frame and drove in the decisive tally with a single, one of four hits in four trips. Earl Wilson recorded his first victory of the young season for Boston. The Red Sox have won three of their four games and are tied for second place with Minnesota. Wally Bunker suffered the loss for the Birds. Other AL Games In other American League contests, the Detroit Tigers outlasted the Los Angeles Angels 4-1 in 13 innings, the Minnesota Twins blasted the Cleveland Indians 6-3, the New York Yankees lashed the Kansas City .Athletics 10-4, and the Washington Senators clipped Chicago 4-1 in the second game of a doubleheader after the White Sox had won the opener 5-1.' In the National League, Sandy Koufax pitched the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 6-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies, Milwaukee ambushed the Chicago Cubs 9-6, Cincinnati crushed the St. Louis Cardinals 8-2, the New York Mets earned a split with San Francisco by winning the nightcap 7-1 in a rain-shortened seven-inning contest after the Giants had won the first game 4-1, and Pittsburgh edged' Houston 5-4 after the Astros had taken a 3-1 decision over the Pirates in the first game of a twinbill. The Tigers retained their unaccustomed hold on first place with their victory over the Angels, which came on three unearned runs in the top of the 13th inning on three singles, a sacrifice bunt and an error. Rudy May. a 20-year-old southpaw making his mound debut for the Angels, hurled no- hit ball before Tiger pinch-hitter Jake Wood doubled to center with one out in the eighth. He scored the tying run on Bobby Knoop's error to make the score 1-1. Hall Sparks Twins . Jimmie Hall's two-run homer off Ralph Terry provided the spark that led the Twins over Cleveland. Sturdy relief pitch-, ing by Dave Boswell earned him his first victory of the season, while Terry suffered the defeat, which evened his record at 1-1. Jim Bouton hurled a six-hitter en route to his first triumph of the season for the Yankees. Mickey Mantle hit his second homer as Kansas City pitcher Moe Drabowski picked up his second defeat without a victory. Rookie left fielder Danny Cater went four for four in the first game as he eased the way for Chisox flipper Gary Peters to his second victory of the season. Cater had three singles and a double to figure in all five Chicago runs. The Nats took advantage of southpaw Pete Richert's effective relief pitching to win the second game. Richert held the White Sox to six hits and contributed some timely hitting while posting his first victory of the season.
