i^^ •He THB, OTTAWA HERALD Friday, March 15, 1963 Teaching Young Quail To Fly By HAROLD O. TAYLOR PHtaborg Headlight ft Son Written for The Associated Press PirrSBURG, Kan. (AP)-Quail shooting in eastern Kansas may be more difficult next season. Supt. Charles Troxel of the Kansas quail farm, northwest of here, is giving the birds an eight- week course in flight training. The first of six flight conditioning pens has been completed at the farm. It is a wire-enclosed structure 148 feet long, 12 feet high and 20 feet wide. The initially installed 1,000 birds performed a surprising amount of aerial activity when placed in the pen. When completed, there will be 1,200 to 1,500 birds in each pen. Heretofore birds have been released after living up to release time in chicken coop style pens. And in past programs, they have been released at 7 ! /2 weeks of age. Under the new program, birds are kept until 16 weeks old before being released. This is viewed as giving them a better chance of survival, when without flight conditioning. Birds will come from the incubator rooms into conditioning pens where they will become acclimated to living outside. From there they will go into the flight conditioning pens to really learn what their wings are intended for and to develop hunter-dodging muscles in the airborne attachments. In the initial pen, Troxel and his crew installed a wall-to-wall covering of small fir trees to bring the suddenly soaring birds to a halt before crashing into the ends of the pens. He found it worked. The quail farm near Pittsburg is one of two in Kansas. The other is near Kingman where flight training is in progress, too. FLIGHT TRAINING FOR BIRDS - In this wire enclosed king-sized bird cage, quail are being "taught to fly" at the Kansas quail farm neir Pittsburg. NCAA Regional At KU Tonight LAWRENCE (AP) - Mighty Cincinnati plays Texas and Colorado faces Oklahoma City University in the semifinals of the NCAA Midwest Regional Basketball Tournament tonight. The top- ranked Bearcats from Ohio are heaviy favored to take their first step toward their third straight national championship. "They're a better ball club," said Harold Bradley, whose Southwest Conference champions play Cincinnati in the 7:30 p.m. opener of a doubleheader that is expected to lure about 7,000 fans to Allen Fieldhouse. "They're rated No. 1 and rightfully so. When you lose only once playing in that Missouri Valley Conference, you've got to be great. "If they have a good night, they're good enough to beat us. If they have a bad night, we're liable to beat them. We have a young team but we think we have pretty good speed, pretty good height, prettp good depth and pretty good shooting." The Longhorns, like Colorado and especially Oklahoma City, have an overall height advantage over Ed Jucker's Bearcats. Under Bradley's system of rotating eight or 10 players, they surrender some of the margin at times. Melvern Beaten By Sylvia, 44-41 DODGE CITY - The Melvern Panthers were dropped out of state competition in the Dodge City Class BB tournament yesterday afternoon by the Sylvia Mustangs, 4441. * * * Tournament Results By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL STATE TOURNAMENTS (Quarter-finals) CLASS AA (At Wichita) Wyandotte 57, Dodge City 32 Parsons 43, Wichita West 36 Salina 54, Hayden 44 Wichita East 55, Shawnee-Mis•ion North 34 CLASS A (At Hutchinson) Neodesha 59, Valley Center 42 Goodland 43, Chapman 39 Russell 75, Marysville 46 Buhler 53, Humboldt 41 CLASS B (At Emporia) Peabody 53, Elkhart 39 Haven 6, Buffalo Midway 40 Hill city 54, Council Grove 52 Highland 50, LeRoy 23 CLASS BB (At Dodge City) Corning 61, Portis 49 Sylvia 44, Melvern 41 Durham 57, Prairie View 50 Dwight 51, Rozel 49 The Panthers, last year's state Class B champions, bowed to the Mustangs in one of their tightest games of the year after winning 14 of 16 regular season games and capturing the Richmond District and Greeley Regional Tournaments. The Panthers started yesterday with a lead in the first quarter and were eight points ahead of the Mustangs at one time. But the quarter ended with Melvern only 3 points ahead 11-8. Both teams played a tight second quarter. Melvern went into the third period with 24 points to the Mustangs 23. The Panthers managed only six points in the third quarter and Sylvia went ahead, 3230. In the final two minutes the Sylvia team scored a field goal, breaking a tie. The fourth quarter was probably the tightest and most exciting single quarter of the year for the Panthers with the score tied three times at 34-34. 38-38 and 40-40. Melvern was down by a point, 40-39, with 47 seconds left in the game. With the ball in their possession, the Panthers called time out. A jump ball was called under Melvern's basket after play resumed. Bob Criss out-jumped his opponent, but the ball hit a Melvern player in the face and went out of bounds. OTTAWA BOWL 41S!/ 2 N.

Cranwell sank a field goal, but again, a Melvern player fouled a Sylvian who sank both shots for the final 44-41 count. Wayne Cranwell played one of his finest games for the Panthers, scoring 23 of his team's 41 points. In other Class BB games at Dodge City Corning defeated Portis, 61-49; Durham beat Prairie View, 57-50, and Dwight felled Rozel, 51-49. Corning will meet Sylvia at 7:30 tonight in semi-final play and Durham will play Dwight at 9. SYLVIA - 44: Banz, 505; Keddie, 330; Stats, 2 3 3; C. Howell, 1 0 0 D.

The only height on the bench comes from 6-8 Dale Heidotting, whose play has been limited all season by an ankle injury, and 6-4 Gene Smith, a sophomore. By contrast, Texas, 19-6 starts a front line of Mike Humphrey and Joe Fisher, both 6-8, and Larry Franks at 6-5. The back- courters are 5-9 Jimmy Gilbert and 6-1 Jimmy Puryear. The rotation system gives reserves John Fultz at 6-8, Jack Dugan at 6-7^, and Mutt Heller at 6-3, as much playing time as the starters. "We can be hurt if we get into foul trouble or run into an injury," said Jucker. "In rebounding power and bench strength, we don't measure up to last year. That Texas depth could be important." Colorado, the Big Eight representative, and Oklahoma City, an at-large selection, are rated about even for the 9:30 p.m. game, although Sox Walseth of Colorado is still shaking his head over the size of the Chiefs. "My little kids were just walking off the court .when Abe Lemons brought his bunch out to practice Friday afternoon," said Walseth. "I got my guys out of there fast. I never saw so many big ones in my life. I may have to use blinkers to keep my kids from getting scared to death." Colorado's two big men, in scoring, rebounding and size, are 6-6 Ken Charlton and 6-8 Jim Davis. Lemons plays 64 Gary Hill and 6-5 Bud Koper, both 20-point scorers and normal forwards, in the back court because they are his "little men." Up front are Eddy Jackson at an even 7 feet, Bill Johnston at 6-9, and Jim Miller at 6-6. Since Jackson became eligible at mid-term 12 games ago, the Chiefs have been beaten only once. They have a 19-9 record, compared to Colorado's 18-6. Apply Famous Scott's Turf Builder Now! For a famous Scott's Lawn next Spring cover 5,000 sq. feet for only $4.95 and use our Scott's Spreader.

(AP) —At the brink of 45 Tommy Bolt admits he has mellowed a bit, but he still has the same old ability to hit a golf ball. Bolt tore into the 6,537-yard Lakewood Country Club course Thursday for a 7-under-par 65 and the first round lead in the $25,000 St. Petersburg Open. "I just got a little lucky," he said as he came off the final green. Billy Maxwell of Las Vegas said he could have used a little luck. Maxwell finished with a 66, but complained that he missed two golden opportunities for birdies. Going into today's second round knotted for third place at 67 were Dave Marr of New Rochelle, N.Y. and a couple of North Carolinians —veteran Julius Boros and Raymond Floyd, 20, of Fayetteville. Bolt, who will be 45 later this month, did the job with an eagle and five birdies. The eagle 3 came on the 451-yard sixth hole when he reached the green in two and dropped a 30-footer. "I'm playing better," he said. "I feel better." ToUseDuren As A Starter CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) Manager Gene Mauch of the Philadelphia Phillies says he plans to use newly acquired right-hander Ryne Duren as a spot starter and count on him for six, seven innings." The 34-year-old Duren, one-time strikeout ace of the New York Yankees, was purchased Wednesday from the Los Angeles Angels for slightly over the $20,000 wavier price.

Main CH 2-3224 ern Carolina of Cullowhee, N.C., faces Fort Hays at 9:15. Finals are Saturday night. The trek down south for the NAIA crown has been an annual trip since 1955. Grambling won in 1961. Last year and in 1960 it was Texas teams, Prairie View and Southwest Texas State. For three years before that it was Tennessee A&I. East Texas State won in 1955 and McNeese State took the title to Louisiana in 1956. Herb Stange, the tournament's leading scorer this year, is one reason the 15th seeded Fort Hays club seems to have a chance at the title. Stange's 89 points in three games included 25 as Hays knocked out Augsburg Wednesday night and 39 as Hays slapped down Rockhurst of Kansas City 96-76 Thursday night. Augsburg was the tournament's second seeded team. Stange's total against Rockhurst was the highest for one game in this year's tournament. He shot 9 times in the first half and hit 9 times. He walked to the free throw line 5 times and scored more field goals and six of sven each time. In the second half he was almost as hot. He got five more field goals and six of seven free throws. But Stange, a 6-foot4 170 pounder from Nickerson, Kan., isn't the whole show for Fort Hays. Sam McDowell has 73 points in three games and John Channel! 66. Western Carolina hasn't been extended since winning a first round game by three points.

Mel Gibson of Carolina has 75 points in three games including 25 against Lewis and Clark. Grambling beat Carson Newman of Jefferson City, Tenn., 79-70, Thursday night, but two baskets in the final seconds hide how close the game really was. Grambling was only a point or two ahead most of the game. Pan American let Northern Michigan stay about even for 10 minutes, then pulled away to t 99-73 victory. Lucious Jackson, a 6-foot-9 240 pounder, scored 35 points for Pan American. Fort Hays' victory was an unofficial verdict for the Missouri- Kansas NAIA crown. The teams hadn't met during' the regular season but Fort Hays was the Central Intercollegiate Conference champion and Rockhurst had gone into this week's tournament with a 25-3 record, best in Missouri. Rockhurst was seeded No. 6. Rockhurst led Fort Hays 5-4 and again 22-19, but the Kansans moved to 42-34 at the half and sped away. Each team got 35 goals from the field, but Fort Hays got 26 free throws to Rockhurst's 6. Getou Buy Now No Money Down MALOTT Hdwe. & Appliances 116 S.
