«WI^ |» THE OTTAWA HERALD ^™ Thursday, March 28, 1963 Can Smash A Putter And Putt With It, Too By WILL GRIMSLEY .Associated Press Sports Writer ' NEW YORK (AP) - American ingenuity, which has split the jitom, put man in orbit and planted Telestar in the heavens, now 4ias come up with the ultimate in scientific achievement—a release valve for the agitated golfer. The secret is the expendable putter. In a maniacal rage, you can smash it to splinters. Then, with -a flick of the wrist you can re- ijstore the club to good health and 'continue about your business. This dream gadget of the short- tempered golfer is not a gimmick. It is the design of established golf ^engineers and the project of one of the country's leading sporting goods manufacturers, parent company of the firm that makes Ben Hogan's clubs. "We have put out several hundred and they have been gobbled up like pancakes," said the designing engineer, Ben Holdemess of New York. "We intend to put them on the mass market." The unique implement is called the Temper Tamer. It consists of a heavy brass blade, a leather grip and three shafts. The shafts can be screwed interchangeably into the blade and grip. One of the shafts is made of strong laminated wood. It is la- belled "permanent." It would be hard to crack with a sledgehammer. The other two are of fragile maple, firm enough for putting purposes but weak enough to snap like match sticks under duress. They are clearly marked "breakable." It's the latter two which take the punishment for a flubbed putt across the knee or against a tree. The price of the original putter is $30, complete with one unbreakable and two expendable shafts. Spares may be bought in lots of three for $4.95. That's $1.65 a crack. Holderness said he got the idea from a golf cartoon which showed a steamed-up golfer trying to break one of the modern steel- shafted clubs. He was complaining: "Why don't they make a club that will break?" \Bowting Roundup High 10 For Sue; High 30 For Ruth • Two of Ottawa's better women howlers were pitted against each jother last night, and one came through with the best series and Jme other the best line.

(AP) - "The JManeater," student newspaper at 'the University of Missouri, said •in an editorial Wednesday it fears jihe university's committee on stu- jlent conduct will be harder on jlohnny Roland, star football halfback, than on another student in ^he same trouble. I Roland is to appear before the committee this week. He paid a J&50 fine last week on a malicious Jnischief charge involving the Iheft of two tires and wheels from jm automobile. : The newspaper quoted Roland is saying he has not reported for ypring football practice at the "suggestion of coach Dan Devine. Roland was an all-Big Eight selection last year as a sophomore. ^ Devine announced Monday Roland was not out for practice but declined to say whose decision it was. He declined to comment on the "Maneater" editorial. + GILLETTE ^ '^ Super Power Bar A + Tractor Tires • J See Us for J J FAST, EFFICIENT J J TIRE SERVICE J J on All Tractors!

It may be Weeb Ewbank. On the other hand, they may not have a new coach. In which case it isn't Weeb Ewbak. At least at the moment. Besides, Ewbank isn't sure he wants the job. "Premature and unfounded" Ewbank said in Baltimore Wednesday of a report that be had been named head coach of the American Football League team. "We are still considering several candidates," said David A. (Sonny) Werblin, head of the syndicate which recently laid out $1 million for the right to operate the bankrupt club. Werblin has said he plans a complete house-cleaning of the Titans, which probably means a new general manager as well as 'lead coach. Clyde (Bulldog) Turner has a year to go on a head coaching contract which calls for $20,000 a year. This probably will be bought up. George Sauer, general manager under former owner Harry Wismer, will be retained as road secretary. Ewbank coached the Baltimore Colts of the National Football League from 1954 until he was fired last season. He won league championships in 1958 and 1959 and was NFL Coach of the Year in 1958. EVERYONE... BUT EVERYONE READS THE HERALD ! CLASSIFIED ADS. DO YOU? See Wide Open Azalea Scramble WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP)-The $20,000 Azalea Open Golf Tournament, which has produced three playoffs in the last five years, begins its 15th staging today with the absence of a clear cut favorite making it possible that more overtime play will be required to determine the winner. The tournament has been passed up by the elite of the touring professional clan, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus, who are looking ahead to nert week's Augusta Masters. Only one of the current 10 leading money winners and five of last year's top 15 are here. This absence of dominant figures on the 6,651-yard, par 72 Cape Fear Country Club course should make for a wide-open scramble. ALL-STATER AND HIS FANS - Wayne Cranwell, an all-state basketball selection at Melvern High, is pictured with two of his best fans, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Don Cranwell. (Herald Photo) All Melvern Ached Over One Sore Toe By A. I. VAN CLEAVE MELVERN — Melvern is a sports town, and when Wayne Cranwell's toe, the middle one on the right foot, started hurting after the first week of basketball practice back in the winter a lot of people felt an ache. Not the ' least was Melvern High Coach Gene Otis who had only Cranwell back in the way of experience from his 1962 state Cl?s. B championship team. "I didn't know whether we could count on him there for awhile," said Otis. As it turned out, Otis could depend a great deal on Wayne. The 6-foot, 1% inch farm boy sparked the Panthers through first-place victories in the Osage County League and Tournament, the Class BB^'district tourney at Richmond and the regional at Greeley. Right on into the state tourney where the Panthers dropped their opener to Sylvia in a squeaker. Cranwell made the all-tournament team at Dodge City, darned unusual for a man on a team beaten out in an opener, Butts-Bryant Case 'Matter' Of Ethics ATLANTA (AP) - Records show that Wallace Butts made telephone calls to persons who had been involved in gambb'ng on college sports events, "but there is no evidence that Butts was engaged in gambling," Atty. ;Gen. Eugene Cook of Georgia says. Cook said Wednesday that he had found no violation of state law in alleged telephne conversions between Butts, former Georgia athletic director, and football coach Paul Bryant of Alabama. The Georgia attorney general, who is investigating charges that Butts and Bryant conspired to rig the Georgia-Alabama football game last fall, indicated that final deposition of the case would be up to the Southeastern Conference as an ethical, not legal, matter. At Birmingham, Ala., SEC Commissioner Bernie Moore said he is calling a meeting of the conference executive committee. But he said it might be a month before the members could get together. "I am not calling the meeting because of Butts and Bryant," Moore said. "Of course, if we get the meeting, it will be discussed." The commissioner said he was still investigating the charges against Butts and Bryant "and I will present my findings to the executive committee." OTTAWA BOWL 41SV 2 N.

The toe bone was split. "Someone must have been standing on it when I jumped," said Wayne. He didn't know the toe was so seriously damaged at the time. Wayne, 17-year-old senior, missed Melvern's first two games, with Quenemo and Americus. Then he came back to average better than 20 points per game the rest of the season of 22 wins and throe losses. Wayne is one of the many fine athletes coming out of Melvern High during the past five years under Otis. He's a 4-year basketball letterman. He won the school numeral as a football end in his sophomore year but suffered a leg injury and gave up the game. He letters in track and claims a 21.2 in the 180 low hurdles; 16.6 in the 120 high hurdles, and 19 feet, 8 inches, in the broad jump. Says Otis: "Wayne is one of the best shooters I've ever had. He's a fine student and real fine basketball player." The chance is good that Craft well will join other Melvem boys, Darrell Schultz and Gary Patterson at Emporia State Teachers College. "They've talked to me," said Wayne. Schultz was post man on last year's state championship team and played with this year's Emporia State freshman team. Patterson was All-CIC at E-State this season. During Otis' five seasons at Melvern he has placed second in the regional twice and went on to the state twice. Wayne is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Don Cranwell who lived four miles north of Melvern. A "B" student in high school, he plans to study business adminstration at college. FOR SALE!

Dennis Auto Co. 31 S West Wilson Cyclones Claim Thirteen Firsts Scoring an overwhelming, victory margin over the Garnett thinclads yesterday afternoon, Coach Orb's Cox's Cyclone track- men scampered off with 13 of 16 possible first places to bring home the first win of the 1963 track season, 15544; Cox, exhibiting usual coach's dissatisfaction with the opening performance,, cast a wary eye over the'times of his charges and exclaimed, "We got lots of work to do." Although the head mentor felt a need for improvement, he still offered a few compliments on the performance of his Reds. "We have no real strong points yet, but we had a fair javelin and broad jump. We got a good pole vault from Charles Bowling and Lester (Edwards) did well in the hurdles for this early in the year and no more experience than he has." Lester, in his first year as a trackman, took first place in two hurdle events and was second in the high jump. He also ran on the mile relay team to give him top honors as the high scorer of the meet with 15% points. The second high scorer, Roy Dunn, utilized his strong right arm to take three first places in the shot, discus and javelin to amass 15 points in a strong second place finish. Jerry Turley, a transfer student from Parsons, churned out a first place in the broad jump and the 100-yard dash, along with a third in the 220. He also ran on the winning mile relay team for 14 points and was third high scorer. Other first place finishes went to Craig Davis in the mile; Roger Ferguson in the 440; Wayne Parker in the 880, and Bowling in the pole vault. Final Score: Ottawa 155 Garnett 64.
