Sweet Old Lady Picks Mets, Senators At $50,000 To By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - The normally stoic betting gentlemen of Las Vegas were "shook up" from their phlegmatic heads to their impassive heels recently. , All because of a little old lady who walked briskly into a legal letting parlor on the Strip one day last month, calmly laid a ; hundred dollar bill on the counter and declared she wanted a parlay :on the New York Mets and Washington Senators to win the Na- .tional and American League pennants. Even in jest a wager of this kind borders on the fantastic. The look of disbelief on the faces of the gentlemen behind the counter turned to shock as the little woman continued to press her advantage. "I understand," she said slowly and distinctly, "the odds are 100- to-1 against each team. A parlay should bring odds of 10,100-to-l. "A $100 bet, therefore, should net me exactly $1,010,000 if the two teams win. That includes, of course, my $100. "Isn't that correct, gentlemen?" she asked very innocently. When the manager of the joint finally found his voice, he managed to stammer that parlay betting was confined only to horse racing and that even if parlays on baseball were permited, the ACME Quality PAINT Annouce Their Grand Opening Celebration 4th and Main, Ottawa, Kansas May 2-3- 4 limit would be 500-to-l regardless of the odds. Undaunted, the knowledgeable lady pushed the C-note into the bookmaker's hand and said sweetly: "All right, then, you're betting me $50,000 to my $100. And I warn you, sir, I'm going to win. I had a dream last night." 11 Colleges In Relays Friday For a pleasant outing for sports fans, how about the Interdeno- maintional Relays scheduled in the cool of Friday evening, April 19, on Cook Field at Ottawa University.
