Boxers Ask Aid of City The Hutchinson Commission lacks the funds to back the Hutchinson Athletic Club's training program for young boxers, Les Keller, director, told a committee meeting with him Wednesday afternoon at the commission office. Recreation i gloves the size of pillows, and sometimes put on public cards. However since no charge can be made for pee-wee fights, the program cannot be self supporting. Bat short of direct sponsorship, Keller offered full cooperation. We will draft a request for aid which will be presented to the city commission soon. The committee made up of Jim Beasley. Mrs. Homer Davis, Milton McVay and Fred Mendell was representing some 30 parents and 100 or more youngsters who for years have wanted a gym-type structure suitable for the training of young boxers. The club needs housing, and this was given first consideration. Beasley said the building just off Main St.. on West B, which until recently housed the Sidney Hairdressing college is available. It was pointed out that the city • owned police station building might be available just as soon as the department can move into the new law enforcement buildings, and the fire station near Sixth and Main is scheduled for abandonment. "The Recreation Commission just doesn't have the resources," Keller said, "But I'm confident resources are available in Hutchinson, and I'll certainly do all I can to help. That's the way we operate with all athletic organizations we don't directly sponsor." Should Incorporate Keller suggested that t h e Hutchinson Athletic Club should incorporate as a non-profit organization so that donations to the club would be tax deductible. He volunteered the Recreation staff for secretarial work for the club, and offered to go with Beasley to service clubs to solicit funds. Keller said he would serve as ex-officio member of the board. The city will be asked to provide housing and a ring. Beasley said the Hutchinson Athletic Clubs owns considerable training equipment that is still serviceable, but that in long range plans some provision should also be made for purchase of new equipment. Beasley expects to have 100 or more boys 6 to 16 years of age in the "pee wee" training program. Thsy train with It was pointed out that for many boys it is boxing — or nothing. A majority of youngsters are too light or too short for football or basketball and many lack the skills for other sports. No boy is ever "cut" from the Hutchinson Athletic club boxing squad. It was pointed out too a "city gym" could be made available to judo enthusiasts, wrestlers, and other persons interested in indoor sports activities and currently without facilities. Sooner Fans To See Game KANSAS CITY (AP) - The National Collegiate Athletic Association's television committee cleared the way Wednesday for the live television viewing in Oklahoma City of the Oklahoma-Texas football classic. Tom Hansen, the Committee's assistant program director, said the decision was made during a telephone conference call that ended at mid- afternoon. The ban on the live telecast was lifted, Hansen said, because games at four small Oklahoma colleges were certified as sellouts. The smaller schools had feared serious cuts into their gate receipts if the Sooner- Longhorn clash, to be played at Dallas, were televised live. The committee also approved a request for a closed circuit telecast in Tulsa and a University of Texas request for closed circuit release in Houston. A request for live release in Tulsa was denied.

National Honors For Greg Pruitt By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Size is no object to Oklahoma's Greg Pruitt. Hardly anyone ever gets a good shot at him, anyway. For instance, in Saturday's 33-20 victory over Southern California, Pruitt scored on runs of 42, seven and 75 yards. On the third one, he seemed to slow down as he approached the goal line and taunt the Southern Cal defender chasing him. Pruitt denies it. "I have a habit of looking over my shoulder when I run, he says. "I was just looking back. I wasn't teasing anyone. When I look back, if a guy is close, I have to run. If he 's not, there's no need in running that hard." In three games this season, Pruitt has run hard enough to gain a whopping 411 yards in a mere 39 carries for a 10.6 average. The major college record is 9.62 by Arizona State's Leon Burton in 1957. Best Day Ever Saturday's show was Pruitt's "best day ever," according to Coach Chuck Fairbanks,. The super-quick halfback carried 16 times for 205 yards and was named national college Back of the Week by The Associated Press. the Sooners adopted the Wishbone-T in midyear—and is probably the best blocker in the Oklahoma backfield. Mets 'Made' The Orioles BALTIMORE (AP) - The New York Mets haven't done much since winning the 1969 World Series, but the Baltimore Orioles figure they're still reaping dividends. "Losing to the Mets helped us grow up," third baseman Brooks Robinson said after the Orioles completed their sweep of Oakland in the American League playoffs Tuesday and qualified for their fonrth World Series in six years. "I'm not glad we lost to the Mets," said outfielder Frank Robinson, "but I think it's the best thing that ever happened. It made us the great team we are. Core Was There "The core of the team was there, but losing pulled us together. We realize we weren't really ready in 1969. We relaxed too much after winning the division, and then couldn't get back into gear." "Until the Mets, wc didn't know what it was to lose," Brooks said. "We beat the Dodgers four straight in the 1966 World Series and then swept Minnesota in the American League playoffs before playing the Mets. Our attitude was different last year." Frank, trying to analyze the success of the Orioles while flying back from the West Coast late Tuesday, reduced it to one word: One Word "Togetherness." "Teams like Boston and Detroit have talent, too," he said. "But strip away all that, and the fact we have a great manager and organization, it all comes down to togetherness. I can't overemphasize that. "We don't have individuals here. I'm no bigger than Jerry Davanon. He's an important part of this club, or he wouldn't be here." Davanon is a reserve infielder who has seen little action. Frank, who joined the Orioles when they won their first title in 1966, contended the togeth- Page 10 The Hutchinson New» Thursday, Oct. 7,1W1 erness didn't depend on winning. "We lost in 1967 and 1968," he said, "but we didn't knock each other. "We don't rely on two or three guys. It's 25 individuals doing what they have to do to win a particular game." Brooks said he didn't care how the Orioles were rated with fine teams of the past, "as long as we win." Find the Ways "We find ways to win," said shortstop Mark Belanger. "I know that minimizes our game, but individually and collectively, that's what we do best." The Orioles have won 318 regular season games the past three years, swept nine straight in the playoffs, and won the 1970 World Series over Cincinnati. Going into Saturday's World Series, they've won 14 in a row- equalling the streak they took into last year's classic. "There's no way you can say it's easy," Weaver said. "We have to work hard for everything we get. Maybe that's the answer. Maybe we just work harder. But, please, don't call it easy." "I'm not saying we can't lose in the World Series," Frank Robinson said, "But we know we will be prepared."

Celtics To Play 44) Owls The Trinity Celtics host the Garden Plain Owls at Prichard Memorial field Friday night at 7:30 p.m. The Celtics, still seeking their first victory of the season, will face some stiff competition from the Owls who are Mid-America League leaders. The Celtics are still working on their offensive game with heavy drills through the week. They scored their first points of the season in the 13-3 loss to Cheney last Friday night. Head coach Jerry Bainmn said, "We are fighting an at- titute problem. The boys want to win but they don't know how to put out that little extra to win. We have made some mental mistakes that have hurt us early in the games. However, I still feel that the Celtics can and will win this year." Garden Plain is rated No. 3 in class 1-A football and has a 4-0 record. Last week the Owls rapped Pretty Prairie 52-14.
