Charles, son of Mr. and Mrs. Norman Bowling, 1024 N. Sycamore, is 2-year track letterman, competing in broad jumping, too. He was an end on football team. (Herald Photo) Bowling Above 13 Feet In Vault By LAMAR PHILLIPS Lawrence High School won the Class AA division of the Ottawa Relays run yesterday on Cook Field, Ottawa University, but had stiff competition from three other schools. Lawrence finished with 37 points, Coffeyville was second with 32, Leavenworth third with 31 and Argentine fourth with 30. Labette County Community High, of Altamont, was fifth with 18% points, Manhattan sixth with 14, Turner seventh with 13%, Atchison eighth with 12%, Emporia ninth with 11%, Ottawa tenth with 11, Parsons eleventh with 10, Fort Scott twelfth with 7, Highland Park thirteenth with 6, Washburn Rural fourteenth with 3, and Seaman fifteenth with 2. Records were broken in the 100 • yard dash, the 220- yard dash, the 440-yard dash and the pole vault. Charles Bowling of Ottawa broke the pole vault record of Jere Potts, Ottawa High, a record that had stood since 1954. Bowling went 13 feet, % of an inch. The previous record, set by Potts, was 12 feet, 8 inches. Willis Letcher of Atchison stepped the 100-yard dash in 9.9 seconds, clipping a tenth of a second off the 10-second record set by Bruce of Sumner High in 1955. Letcber also broke the record President, 349,999 Others To Watch Baseball Openers the 220-yard dash, running it n 21.9 seconds. This is a tenth of second better thin the 22-sec- nd mark set by Newell of Shaw- ee Mission in 1955. The fourth record that fell was roken by Drue Jennings of Argentine. He ran the 440-yard dash n 50.7 seconds, breaking the 1.5-second mark set by Burton f Washington High in 1955. The high jump record was ap- troached, but not quite reached. Jigsby of Manhattan won the svent yesterday, clearing the bar at 6 feet, 3'/6 inches. The record s 6 feet, 4 inches, set by Bob annon of Haskel Indian Institute, Lawrence, in 1950. Today the A and B divisions of he annual relays are being run, nd hundreds of high school ath- etes are participating. This is the first year the big event has been spread over two lays to relieve the pressure. Orlis Cox, director of the meet, which is sponsored by Ottawa ligh, Ottawa University and the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce, said yesterday that some consideration is being given to running Classes AA and A on one day, and Class B on another, in the future. This would balance more nearly the number of athle- es participating on the two days. This year there are 68 Class B schools entered. Weather yesterday was perfect or track activities, and the same weather is expected to prevail his afternoon. The summary: Broad Jump — 1. Miller, Turner; 3. Tie, Vensyoc of Emporia, and Fields of Coffeyville; 4. Emery, Leavenworth; S. Turley, Ottawa. 23 fe.t, 'A loch. NEW YORK (AP)-A 45 per cent player turnover, including at least a dozen rookies, is anticipated when the major leagues open the 1963 baseball season next Monday and Tuesday. About 350,000 persons, including President Kennedy, are expected to attend the 11 openers, two on Monday, the rest the following day. The President, as is customary, will throw out the first ball at D.C. Stadium, where some 47,000 fans will watch the Washington Senators inaugurate the American League season against the Baltimore Orioles in Monday's only league game. Don Rudolph, 31-year-old southpaw, figures to get the starting assignment for Mickey Vernon's Senators. He will be opposed by another left-hander, 23-year-old Steve Barber. Rudolph had an 8-10 record for the last-place Senators and Barber was 9-6 for the Orioles last year. A capacity crowd of around 30,000 is assured for the traditional National League opener in Cincinnati. The Pittsburgh Pirates, with right-hander Earl Francis, 9-8, on the mound, will be the Reds' opposition. Lefty Jim O'Toole, a 1613 performer in '62, has been given the starting nomination by Reds Manager Fred Hutchinson. All teams, except Baltimore and letter Watch Out for Jack Nicklaus .-a-,,. ^OfiUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Pudgy Jack Nicklaus,-whose nicknames range frpin "Bob-Bo" to "Baby Dumpling," was the young man to watch starting today's third round of the: Masters Golf Tournament, Although he and handsome Jay Hebert were one shot behind the midpoint leader, husky Mike Sou- chak, the 23-year-old Nicklaus held center stage after his dazzling comeback in the second round when a blazing putter carried him to a 6-under-par 66. Souchak, a former end and place-kicker on the Duke football team, didn't play the first 36 holes like a man who hasn't won a tournament in two years. His halfway chart was 69-70—139. Nicklaus was 74-66 — 140 and Hebert 70-70—140. The 66 Nicklaus threw at the field is the lowest score thus far in the 27th Masters and is only two shots off the record set here by Lloyd Mangrum 23 years ago— the year Nicklaus was born. SiHichak escaped a three • way deadlock when he capped his second straight steady round with an 8-foot birdie putt on 18. Bo Wininger, tied with Souchak at 69 after the first round, bogied the 18th and wound up with a 72 and 141 total, that put him in a tie * * * AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP)-Leading scorers after 36 holes in the 27th Masters Golf Tournament over the 6,850-yard, par 72 Augusta National course: Mike Souchak 68-70-139 Jay Hebert 70-70-140 Jack Nicklaus 74-66--140 Ed Furgol 70-71-141 Bo Wininger 69-72-141 Tony Lema 74-69-143 Dick Mayer 73-70-143 Sam Snead 70-73-143 Julius Boros 76-69-145 Player 71-74-145 for fourth place with late-finish' ing Ed Furgol, the lame-armed former Open champion who bir died two of the last three holes for a 71. Par for the picturesque, testing Augusta National course is 36-36— 72, stretched 6,850 yards over rolling woodlands and well-laced with water hazards. Neither Gary Player nor Arnold Palmer, who with Nicklaus are the big names of current-day golf, was in a particularly threatening position starting the final two rounds. Player, who said he never got the one big shot to get him roll ing, struggled to a 74 for 145—six strokes off the pace. Palmer, the defending champion, who managed a mild rally on the back nine despite a ragged game, had a 73 for 147. Washington will play Tuesday.

A source close to the Eagles said lie was confident a majority of the 60 stockholders would vote to sell. In Cleveland, Arthur Modell, president of the Browns, who fired Brown in January, cleared the way for the deal by saying he would release Brown from a contract obligation. Modell said Brown signed a contract within the past 10 days which redefined his duties with the club but added that Brown could take another job if he so desired. Brown, who would take over as general manager and coach of the Eagles, has six years remaining on a 10-year contract as vice Beer Man Says He Didn't Talk Gambling With Butts ATLANTA (AP) - A Chicago businessman said his telephone conversations with Wallace Butts, former University of Georgia athletic director, "had nothing whatsoever to do with betting on football or any other type of betting." Frank Scoby, president of an Illinois beer distributing firm, told The Associated Press in Chicago Friday that he had talked with Butts by long distance telephone on various occasions, but that all the calls were "strictly business." Scoby was a government witness in a gambling case in 1959. Butts, accused in a Saturday Evening Post article of conspiring with coach Paul Bryant of Alabama to rig the Georgia-Alabama football game last fall, was questioned by state investigators about the calls to Scoby. A transcript revealed that Butts told interrogators he borrowed (6,000 from Scoby for business purposes. But he said there never was any discussion of betting or gambling. Butts and Bryant have denied rigging the game which Alabama won 35-0, and both have said they never gambled. Butts has a million libel suit pending against the Post. Cook said in a report of his findings that there was no evidence that Butts or Bryant had gambled. He said earlier, however, that Butts had placed calls to persons who had been involved in gambling.

Brown had claimed that Modell breached their contract, which calls for him to be coach-general manager. He says he already was a vice president, the new post assigned him by Modell. Brown was not available for comment Friday night. He hasn't made a formal bid but he reportedly sounded oul Eagles' officials about the availa bility of the franchise shortly after he was fired from his Cleve^ land post last January. Frank McNamee, Philadelphia fire commissioner and president of the Eagles, declined to comment on the story. It was understood that the 71- year-old McNamee and Joseph A Donoghue, executive vice president and secretary, would be in favor of selling to Brown provided the team remains in Philadelphia McNamee and Donoghue likley would remain with the Eagles.
