PAGE 4 THE TIPTON DAILY-TRIBUNE I Wednesday, April 21,1965 Tipton Wins Four-School Track Meet At Logansport Spahn Sets Strikeout Record vs Dddgers By FRED DOWN UP1 Sports Writer And so, after all, Warren Spahn and the New York Mets may have the last laugh on the : rest of the baseball world Tabbed as washed up when he had a 6-13 record for the Milwaukee Braves in 1964, Spahn was acquired by the Mets as a pitcher-coach and then promptly announced he still regarded himself as primarily a pitcher. The- idea of a pitcher who will be 44 on next Friday winning for the ragamuffin Mets seemed incredible — even when that pitcher is the most successful left-hander in major league history. But Spahn demonstrated Tuesday night that there's still something left in the arm that won 356 games from 1946 through 1964 by pitching the Mets to a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers—and acquiring another National League record in the bargain. By striking out five batters Spahn raised his career total to 2,501 and thereby surpassed the previous league mark of 2.499 set by Hall of Famer Christy Malhewson. Had Something Extra What's more Spahn showed that he still can reach for something extra in the clutch by pitching his way out of a ninth-inning jam when the Dodgers scored both their runs. Wes Parker's single, an error and singles by Tommy, Davis and John Roseboro produced two runs and it looked like Spahn just didn't have enough left to make it. But he struck out Jim Lefebvre for the 2,500th strikeout of his career, T. Davis was caught in a rundown and Warren polished off the night's work by fanning John Kennedy for the final putout of the game. In all, Spahn allowed eight hits, walked one and struck out five. Johnny Lewis, who scored the Mets' first run as a pinch runner, delivered a two-run single off Ron Perranoski in the top of the ninth to give Spahn a 3-0 lead. In his first outing of the season, Spahn allowed seven hits and three runs in eight innings against the Houston Astros. The Philadelphia Phillies shaded the Astros, 2-1, in 13 innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the San Francisco Giants, 3-1, in other National League games while the Boston Red Sox defeated the Washington Senators, 5-2, in the only American League game. Makes NL Debut Ray Herbert, making his NL debut after 12 years in the AL pitched five-hit shutout ball for eight innings but removed himself from the gam<Kat the start of the ninth because- he felt he had lost his stuff and the As- tos tied | the score at 1-1 against Ed Roebuck. The Phillies won the game in the 13th when Ruben Amaro singled home Cookie Rojas from sec-' ond base with two out. Roberto : Clemente singled home runs in the first and fifth innings as the Pirates spoiled the Giants'; home opener. Bob Friend went 6 1-3 innings and then Al McBean came on to shut out the Giants for the final 2 2-3. Willie Mays hit his third homer of the season for the Giants' irun. Felix Mantilla drove in all five Red Sox' runs with a single and the first grand slam homer of his AL career. Mantilla's homer sent the Red Sox off to a 4-1 lead in the first inning. Dave Morehead lasted 1-3 innings before giving way to relief ace Dick Radatz who held the Senators to one hit in the last 1 2-3 innings.

MP 1 ST. 2>utributed by King Features Syndicate Most of the other sports writers in the conference have installed Tipton as the favorite to J win ' ythe CIC championship when they host the conference meet here a week from Friday. But several schools are still to be heard from. We still have no idea what Wabash is doing but Muncie Burris very definite- has to be stamped "as a contender and we're not counting Huntington out of the race. The ikings were pretty solidly bejtten by Tipton in an early m'eet but some of the races, par tieularly the half mile relay, were close enough that the finish could be reversed. Tipton's biggest strength of course comes in the hurdles with the terrific 1-2 punch supplied by defending high hurdles champion Bill Moore and teammate Kim Hand who is alternating with Moore this year in inning both the high and the low hurdles. If the scoring in invidividual races is on a 5-3-2-1 basis for first through fourth positions that would send Tipton off with 16 points and that's a big start. No one else that we know of in the conference has come close to their times. Todate, however, Huntington has the fastest boys in.both the 440 and the 880, and Glendening of Muncie Burris and Allen Roy of Alexandria are strong contenders in the mile. Greg Hammond of Peru is far and away the best so far in the broad jump and Burris has the fastest mile relay team yet uncovered. Alex was weakened this week Mike Crist, was declared ineligible for further athletics because he participated in an independent basketball tournament last week. Tipton travels to Peru for a meet Thursday that will give us a better insight into the Bengals' strength, aside from Hammond in his specialty. Hammond, if we recall, is also a low hurdle threat. Criticized We got a chuckle reaciing Kent Dove's column in Tuesday's Peru Tribune. Just back from a week vacation in the east, Dove found a letter on his desk complaining because he had referred to one of the boys on the Peru golf team as a "duffer'". Heck, in our book anyone who isn't breaking SO is a duffer, and it goes back a lot of years that we have had to include ourselves in that category. Once you get under 80 then you're just starting to attain respectability as a golfer. ' Congratulations, by the .vay, to Tipton pro Red Pitney for leading his team to a second place finish in the first Pro- Am tourney of the season Monday in Indianapolis. New Coach Wabash, which hasn't been faring too well in basketball warfare recently, signed • Bob Shawhan Tuesday as it's new basketball coach. Shawhan had resigned at Eastern High School to step into administration but Wabash quickly pulled him out of his voluntary retirement with an excellent salary offer that Shawhan couldn't refuse SPORTS PARADE (Rel- U.S. Pat. Off.) By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — Whitey Ford hadj the unique experience of pickinjg up the paper Tuesday anol reading his own "obituary." This could be a soul shattering experience for anyone, but the understanding 36-year-old Yankee southpaw knows how to roll with a punch. Besides, he has read essentially the same thing before so all he did this time was smile and shrug his shoulders. The suspicion iFord might be finished originally arose from the fact he underwent arm surgery during the winter .and was hit hard through most .of the spring. Suspicion Grew That suspicion grew to alarming proportions when he was hammered for six hits and seven runs in three innings Monday night by the Kansas City A's, a club he had a 23-4 lifetime record against and one which he usually can beat simply by tossing his glove on the mound. Local newspapers immediately headlined the questionr "Is Whitey. Ford Through?" If he is, no one will have to tell him. He'!', tell them. There is no con in Fcr:"; .make-up and the next lie he ever tells the Yankees will be his first When Ford doesn't have it he's the first to say so. And when he was lucky to win he always said so, too. After that pounding by the A's,. his wife, Joan, naturally was concerned about his arm also. She waited until he came back home with the team to speak with him about it. Arm Felt Fine "I asked him the same as anyone else how his arm felt and he told me it felt fine,"' she said. "I feel things will be much better for him as soon as it gets a little warmer." Johnny Keane. the Yankees' new manager, also read about Ford's ''passing" in the papers and if the stories worried him at all he certainly didn't show it. Steve Burket Ties T.H.S. Vault Record "I think those stories were a little premature," he said. "There's no doubt in my mind he can still pitch and there isn't any doubt in his. either. I certainly have no intention of dropping him out of the regular rotation. Tipton cindermen, readying for a try next week at the CIC track championship, yesterday captured a four-school meet at Logansport, the Blue Devils scoring 56, Logansport 50«>, Oak Hill 41V- and Twin Lakes 37. Kim Hand and Bill Moore continued their rivalry in the hur dies yesterday, Hand reversing the finish of last week's Muncie Relays by finishing ahead of his teammate in both "efforts. The two of them got Tipton off to a fast start in the first race of the program when Hand won it in 15.5 seconds just ahead of Moore with Twin Lakes' Som mers taking third, Williams of Oak Hill fourth and Bennett of Logansport fifth. Dick Heron ran the mile in 4:40.3 to finish second for Tip ton behind Elmore of Logan sport, followed by runners from Twin Lakes. Oak Hill and Twin Lakes in third, fourth and fifth positions. , Jim Rumbaugh; running the 100 yard dash in 10.5 seconds had to settle for fourth spot against Bragg of Oak Hill, Graham and Maple of Logan, with Hanna of Twin Lakes taking fifth. The winner was clocked in 10.3. Dan Crouch got Tipton a third in the 440, clocked in a good 53.7 seconds. the high jump. Tipton has a meet Thursday at Peru, then goes to Kokomo Saturday for the Kokomo Relays. bash mentor, resigned in the middle of this school year to accept an excellent position in Ohio in industry, and left the coaching ranks for good.

With sophomore 220 ace Louie Guenther absent from his specialty due to death of his grandfather, Jim Rumbaugh ran fourth for the Blue Devils in that event, clocked in 24 seconds flat in a close race that saw Bragg pick up his second blue ribbon for Oak Hill, winning in 23.3. . Mughmaw, a fine hurdler from Oak Hill, outran both Hand and Moore to win the low hurdles in 20.8 seconds but Hand and Moore finished second and third to I pick, up valuable points for Tipton. The Blue Devils were unplaced in the mile relay, using Crouch, Pat Beaver, Larry Deakyne and Dan Tragesser, biit Tipton finished third in the 880 relay turning in their best time of the- season, 1:37.0, with baton handlers being Keith Smith, Rumbaugh, Moore and Hand. Steve Burkett tied the Tipton school record of 11*10" set several years ago by Bobby Strong, to .win the pole vault, and just barely missed on an effort to clear 12'1'i". Jim Harmon picked up-the third place points for Tipton here. Lex Boyd earned second place In Hollywood By VERNON SCOTT UPI Hollywood Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — Tarzan's bucking the nudie trend! While everyone else on the big screen—male and female alike—are setting records for walking around undressed, the original movie bare chest is covering up. Yep, Tarzan in his newest film will wear suits and neckties for 30 per cent of the picture. The rest of the time he'll be running around in a loin cloth. But in the old days of Johny Weismuller that's all he ever wore. It's not that the ape man has had a fit of modesty; they're just bringing the old lord of the jungle up to date. Producer Sy Weintraub's "Tarzan '66" finds the Edgar Rice Burroughs character loping around Mexico of all places. Instead of fretting about fights with lions or stampeding elephants, Tarzan-baby will .be • worrying about the drinking water which can be twice as punishing as a charging water buffalo. Neither does Tarzan limit himself to grunts and that nutty apre call of his. And for good measure he's ditched Jane and that sloppy little kid of his named boy. As Weintraub puts it, "We're bringing Tarzan up to date. Now he's articulate and a bachelor, free to get involved with pre'ty girls. He doesn't have to report home to Jane on the 5:30 vine every night. 'And he's no longer' limited to Africa.
