W L THE OTTAWA HERALD , .Monday, April 15, 1961 American League |L 9 s Hurlers Tough t-/ In 3-Game Sweep By JIM VAN VALKENBURG Associated Press Sports Writer Ed Lopat has insisted all along his Kansas City pitching staff is much improved over last year's, and the Athletics finally made him a prophet by permitting Minnesota only five earned runs in a three-game sweep. "I've got six good ones to pick five regular starters from," Lopat said after the A's edged the Twins 5-4 Sunday, and jumped into a second place tie in the American League. "(Ed) Rakow and (Dave) Wickersham both have a chance to win 20," Lopat said. He named Diego Segui, Orlando Pena, Ted Bowsfield and Dan Pfister as his other starter candidates. Pena stopped the Twins on one run in a five-inning relief stint and for the moment, the 27-year- old Cuban was foremost in Lopat's mind. "Pena is wiry, he has a rubber arm, and he can control five pitches—sneaky fast one, curve, slider, change and fork ball," he said. "Most of all, he knows how to pitch. Last year we pitched to every Los Angeles batter just the way we went over 'em in the clubhouse before the game—and he shut 'em out, too." Rakow fired a 6-0 shutout in the first game of the Minnesota series. Then Wickersham won 3-2 in the second game. Segui, the loser in the opener with the New York Yankees, started Sunday's game. Bowsfield is the only lefthander on the staff, but Lopat isn't in a hurry to pick up a lefty, just to have another lefthander. "I'd rather have a good right- hander than an ordinary lefty," he said. The Athletics turned on Minnesota's ace righthander, Camilo Pascual, for all their runs in the fifth inning. Pascual opened the inning by striking out Norm Siebern and then fanned Chuck Essegian. But Ed Charles singled to center and Pascual lost his control. He walked Gino Cimoli and Bill Bryan, filling the bases. Manny Jimenez batted for Segui and doubled down the left field line, scoring all three runners. Dick Howser drew the third walk of the inning off Pascual and then Jose Tartabull tripled, driving in two more runs. Relief pitcher Jim Roland struck out Jerry Lumpe, ending the inning. In A Slump? Get Traded By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer Attention slump-ridden batters: Shell-shocked pitchers: Here's what you do. Get a transfer to another major league club. It has done wonders for others. For example, Jerry Walker, Ron Kline, Lary Osborne, Stan Wil- Oams and Orlando Pena of the American League. Walker hurled shutout ball through 4 2-3 innings after coming to the relief of star Jim Grant Sunday and was credited with Cleveland's 6-0 victory orer Detroit Walker was 8-9 at Kansas City last year. Kline's sparkling four-inning relief stint helped the Washington Senators defeat the Boston Red Sox 7-6. Osborne drove in two runs with a double and sacrifice and scored another Senator run. Kline was 3-8 and Osborne batted .230 at Detroit last year. Williams turned back the Balti more Orioles 5-1 with a five-hitter as he pitched the New York Yankees into first place. He had a mediocre 12-10 record with Los Angeles last year and wore the goat's horns after walking in the winning run in the Giants' final playoff victory over the Dodgers. Pena pitched five dazzling relief innings in Kansas City's 5-4 triumph over Minnesota. The Cuban right-hander, a bust with Cincinnati, was rescued by the Athletics from the minors last summer. A minor miracle occurred in Los Angeles, where the only other AL game was scheduled. Rain washed out the Chicago White Sox and the Angels. Newly traded players also played key roles in nearly all National League decisions. Larry Jackson, traded by St. Louis to Chicago, was credited with the Cubs' 3-1 victory over San Francisco. Don Nottebart, swapped by Milwaukee to Houston, pitched the Colts to a 54 victory over the Dodgers. Howie Goss, acquired from Pittsburgh, drove in two Colt runs with a pair of singles.

NEIL BULLOCK 121 S. Main Ottawa, Kansas land, drove in the only run with a 10th inning single in Milwaukee's 1-0 triumph over the New York Mets. Earl Averill, ex-Angel, drove in the winning run with a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning in Philadelphia's 4-3 first game triumph over St. Louis. The Phils also won the second game, 5-4. Sanders Wins, Again, In Carolina GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP)-A dozen years ago a slim-waisted, skinny 18-year old from Cedartown, Ga., arrived unheralded at Durham, N.C., for the Junior Chamber of Commerce National Junior Golf Tournament. His name was Doug Sanders and his short backswing attracted the attention of purists who marveled at the results he got with what has since become known as the "telephone booth swing." He went on to win the tournament, his first triumph of consequence. Today, Doug Sanders, now 29, and still slender at 160 pounds, is $5,500 richer for having returned to North Carolina to win the $37,500 Greater Greensboro Open tournament; He closed with a two-under-par 69 round Sunday a 270 total, 14 under par, to lead the field by four shots. Sanders put together rounds of 68-65-68-69-over the 7,000 - yard, par 71 Sedgefield Country Club course to miss by one shot tying the tournament record set by Sam Snead, seven-time winner here since 1938. Second was 41-year-old Jimmy Clark of Huntington Beach, Calif., who closed with his third 68 for a 274 total to win $3,500. Australian Kel Nagle, who made up four shorts in four holes on the back nine playing with Sanders Sunday, finished third at 275, closing with 69 to win $2,400. Sharing fourth place at 277, were Bob Charles, the New Zealand southpaw; Art Wall anl Harold Kneece, each winning $1,766. Snead, Gary Player and Jack McGowan tied for seventh at 278 to win $1,400 each. This brought Snead's winnings in 23 of 24 tournaments here to $27,200 since 1938.

McKinley Loses HOUSTON (AP)-Manuel Santana of Spain defeated Chuck McKinley Sunday to become the third foreign player in as many years to capture the River Oaks tennis trophy. Bowling Sets New Vault Mark Ottawa High's Charles Bowling posted his second pole vault record in two weeks at the Emporia State Relays Saturday as he claimed first place in the event at 13 feet, 4Mi inches, breaking his own Ottawa Relays record of 13 feet, five-eights of an inch. The only other Ottawan to place in the E-State Relays was Paul Stephens, son of Rev. and Mrs. R. C. Stephens, 704 N. Oak, who came in fifth in the 220-yard dash. The Ottawa boys competed against athletes from 15 other high schools: Topeka High, Wyandotte, Lawrence, Salina, Argentine, Washington Rural, Junction City, Newton, Independence, Manhattan, Shawnee - Mission North, Shawnee - Mission West, Emporia, Topeka West and Shawnee-Mission East. Topeka High gained 55 points to win the title over the other schools. Ottawa scored only 6 points. Bowling set his first pole vault record at the Ottawa Relays April 5 in competition with athletes from 15 Class AA schools in Kansas. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Norman Bowling, 1024 N. Sycamore. Some Good Experience For Braves The Ottawa University Braves didn't set any records in the Emporia Relays. Nevertheless OU Coach Bill Boucek felt that while the large schools would dominate the meet his athletes would gain valuable experience. A glance at their times indicate he was right. Take the 400 Relay for instance. In an event that Lincoln University of Nebraska set a record of 41.5 OU's entry of Stan Hudson, Floyd Scott, Andy Honeycutt and Jon Krebs ran 44 flat. In the 880-Relay Hudson, Dick Spong, Honeycutt and Krebs posted a 1.29, again shadowed by the large schools for a place and Lincoln's new record of 1.25.2. The Braves' Mile Relay team erased its previous low for the year with a 3.26.9 clocking. Hudson, Scott, Spong and Dick Booth carried the Baton for Ottawa in that one. Jerry Harshaw, Krebs, Ray Harvey and John Petty placed fifth for OU in the 480 Shuttle Hurdle race with a 1.06 time. Lincoln also broke this record with a 57.7 effort The meet produced two half- milers for Coach Boucek. In an event that Ottawa has been relatively weak this year, Jim Carter and Dick Booth both ran a 2.04 time, several seconds under this season's previous low. Two other men came up with their season's best mark. Duane Randel, a consistent winner in the 2-mile, posted a 4.38 in the mile race, and Francis Gardner was among the javelin leaders with a heave of 189 feet 11% inches. No points were kept in the college division of the Relays, but Emporia State took the unofficial title. Bob Admits i HisGeltics Were Lucky BOSTON (AP)'- The Boston Celtics agreed today they have a jump in their grudge playoff series with Los Angeles because of luck and Tommy Heinsohn. "After a lot of years we finally got a break," said Boston captain Bob Cousy after the Celtics eked out of 117-114 triumph Sunday night in the opener of the National Basketball Association championship playoff series. "We played mediocre ball and still won." Heinsohn, held to nine points for the first 40 minutes, blocked an attempted close-range jumper by Red-hot Jerry West, recovered the ball, flipped to Sam Jones and took a return fast-break pass for a layup. There was 1 minute, 10 seconds left. On the second of two Los Angeles missed buckets, Sam Jones pulled down the ball and fired a full length pass which Heinsohn converted for the decisive basket, putting Boston in front 115-110 with 37 seconds to go. As usual, the Lakers' incomparable Elgin Baylor led all scorers with 33 points while West and Dick Barnett added 25 each in the losing cause. Kansas Women Doubles Leaders MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Pat Kirkpatrick and Louise Deidiker of Parsons, Kas., too first place in division 2 doubles at the Woman's International Bowling Congress Tournament Sunday with a 1,016 series. The new leaders surpassed Ruth Longere and Dorothea Jeffries of Indianapolis, who had dominated the division for over a week with a 1,015. Janet Aldridge of Joplin Mo., took second place in division 2 singles with a 549 series, including a 214 opening game. Insurance On Everything Porter - Spears AGENCY Tom Porter — Phone CH 2-3007 — George Speara National League Over Giants By JIM BECKER Associated Press Sports Writer "We made the trade of the year." So said Bob Kennedy, the head of the horde of Chicago Cub coaches, talking about the deal that brought Larry Jackson and Lindy McDaniel to the Cubs from the St. Louis Cardinals during the winter. "We got our ace starter, and our best relief pitcher, in one deal," the Cubs' head coach said. Kennedy's words looked very wise today. Jackson tamed the mighty San Francisco Giants for the first time this year, 3-1, Sunday, with ninth-inning help from McDaniel. The defeat dropped the Giants into a first-place tie with the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Philadelphia Phils, all with 4-1 records. Alvin McBean scattered 10 hits and pitched out of two bases- loaded messes, to best the Cin- Should Register Those Big Fish Unfortunately, many fishermen still seem to be unaware of the fact that the Kansas Forestry, Fish and Game Commission is keeping records on large fish caught in the state. Others, who may be vaguely familiar with the fact, are uncertain of what is required to establish an official record. A case in point is that of two Erie anglers who took a record- breaking flathead catfish last September. The whooper, 66 pounds, 10 ounces, was more than two pounds heavier than the current record, but the fishermen failed to obtain the required information so that it could be registered. Raymond Moses and George Fischer weighed the monster on scales legal for trade but they neglected to measure the length and girth of the fish. These measurements are required before the official recognition is made. What should you do if you catch that big one? Well, here are the rules which must be followed. 1. Have the fish weighed on scales legal for trade in the presence of two disinterested witnesses. This weighing should be made as soon as possible after the fish is caught; shrinkage in weight occurs if the fish is retained on a stringer or out of the water for any great length of time. 2. Measure the length of the fish carefully and use a tape- measure to obtain the girth mas- urement. The girth measurement is made at the place of largest diameter exclusive of fins. 3. Have a picture taken of the fish, preferably with the angler. A clear, sharp glossy photo must be submitted with the registration blank. 4. Write to the Forestry, Fish and Game Commission, Pratt, and request an official fish registration blank. When it arrives, fill it out and return it along with the picture. Here are the current Kansas record fish: largemouth bass, 10 Ibs., .1 oz; channel catfish, 32 Ibs.; flathead, 64 ,lbs., 8 oz.; walleye, 10 Ibs., 8 ozs.; black crappie, 4 Ibs., 10 oz.; white crappie, 3 Ibs., 4 ozs.; white bass, 3 Ibs., 10 ozs.; bluegill, 2 Ibs., 5 ozs.; green sunfish, 2 Ibs., 2 zos.; drum, 27 Ibs.; bullhead, 4 Ibs., 3Vi ozs.; carp, 20 Ibs., 8 qz., and sturgeon, 4 Ibs. Begin Football Ticket Sale KANSAS CITY (AP)-"Operation Touchdown" — a highly organized ticket selling and publicity drive to insure the move of the American Football League champion Dallas Texans to Kansas City—opens today in 104 cities. Lamar Hunt, wealthy young oilman who owns the Texans, is committed to move the club if his requirement of 25,000 season tickets is met. This would be double the AFL's record advance sale of 12,000 by Los Angeles in 1960, but campaign leaders are certain they will make it. Ray Evans, Kansas City banker and former All-America halfback at Kansas in 1947, heads the ticket drive. He said he encon- tered a little skepticism when the goal was first announced, but it quickly vanished. . "There is more talk and enthusiasm for pro football now than I've experienced in many years," Evans said. "It was no trouble finding people to help in the drive. They called up and volunteered." The Chamber of Commerce has put together a ticket selling organization which includes 1,400 persons in the city and almost 2,000 in a five-state 'area, including sections of Oklahoma, Nebraska and Iowa. Almost every city within 100 miles has a ticket chairman. cinnati Reds and Joey Jay, 1-0 for he pirates. Jack Baldschun, the relief work* torse of the Phils—1J2 games in he last two years—picked up the decisions in both ends of a double wader victory over the Cards, 4-3 in 10 innings, and 5-4. The Houston Colts whipped Sandy Koufax and the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4, and the hapless •few York Mets went down 1-0 n 10 innings before the Milwau- cee Braves, in the other National League games. Jackson's sparkling performance against the Giants was in ine with the fine pitching the 2ubs have gotten all season. In five games, all against the Dodgers and Giants, Cub pitchers have a 1.20 earned run average. McBean pitched the Pirates to their fourth straight, although he left the bases loaded twice and stranded two men in three other innings. Joey Jay pitched a five hitter for the Reds for eight innings, but three of the hits, singles by Smoky Burgess, Donn Clendenon and Bill Virdon, came in the fourth inning.for the only run. It ' was Cincinnati's fourth straight defeat after an opening victory. The St. Louis pitching staff, which had 53 consecutive scoreless innings including the last 21 innings of last season, came down to earth with a thud against the Phillies. Wes Covington doubled home a run in the sixth inning of the opener to snap the string. Charley James tied the score at 3-3 with a Cardinal homer in the ninth, and then Earl Averill's short sacrifice fly in the 10th pushed Over the winner. In the second game, Ray Sadecki had a 44) lead for the Cards until Tony Taylor hit a two-run homer in the seventh and Don Home need decorating?

Taylor retched first on Dick Groat's error in the ninth, was sacrificed to second and scored the winner on Demeter's single off relief pitcher Ron Taylor. Koufax, who has never beaten the Colts in five starts, lost his first against one victory, at Houston. The left-hander was the victim of a four-hit barrage and some sloppy support in the sixth inning. The poor Mets, still winless, suffered their third shutout in five games. They have scored only three runs, an average of 3-5th of a run per game, and have a team batting average of .124, on 19 hits, a shade under four per game. Bob Hendley held the Mets to four hits. Roger Craig was the victim. He matched zeros with Hendley through nine innings, but gave up a run in the 10th on a walk, a sacrifice and Ty Cline's single.
