THB OTTAWA HERALD Friday, April 19, 1963 Area Boys Set Four New Records At Tola Athletes from Lane, Pomona, Quenemo and Williamsburg set four new records in the lola Relays yesterday and came home with a claim on seven first places out of 17 events. The four schools competed against 24 other Class B schools in this area of the state. Blue Mound won the meet with 55 points. LeRoy came in second with 28; Erie third with 23'/ 2 ; Pomona fourth with 22'/ 2 ; Williamsburg fifth with 20'/2, and Lane sixth with 17. Pomona's Jim Gorackc set a new 100-yard dash record at 10.2, beating a LeRoy High runner's record of J0.4 last year. Pomona's flying Roger Shoemaker set a pole vault record of 12 feet, % inches, breaking an Erie athlete's 1960 record of 12 feel. Quenemo's Joe Hoover tied Erie High's Stagman for a new high jump record in the lola events. Hoover and Stagman went five feet, eight inches to break Moran High School's 1962 record of five feet, six and a half inches. Lane's Mike Kuder set a new broad jump record yesterday at a distance of 19 feet, eight and a half inches. The previous record was set in 1961 by a Pleasanton athlete at 19 feet, three and three-fourth inches. In other events Fred Buckley of Williamsburg High took first place for his school in the mile run at 4:46.0. A Williamsburg team made up of Carol Mallory, Phil Piersol, James Sowers and Cliff Goodwill claimed first place in the mile relay at 3:45.9. Lane's Mike Kuder was top man in one event seldom heard of, particularly in high school track meets. Kuder took first in the hop, skip and jump at 36 feet, 11 inches. The lola Relays are sponsored annually by the lola Junior College. Gold Mine In Golf; And In Beer, Too NEW YORK (AP)-Mothers, do you want your son to become a financial success? Forget stocks and bonds. Steer clear of oil and big steel. Don't bother with the diamond mines in Johannesburg. Give the boy a set of golf clubs, teach him to swing and put him on the professional tour. This is the newest shortcut to the U.S. mint. A Cleveland brewing concern announced plans Tuesday for a new tournament to be inaugurated in August 1964. It will have a total purse of $200,000—the richest in golf history—with $35,000 going to the winner and $17,000 to the runnerup. The event, with full sanction of the Professional Golfers Association, is aimed at putting tournament golf on a worldwide scale- open, as the announcement put it, to amateurs and professionals regardless of race, creed or color. Qualifying tests will be held on every continent—probably in remote places like Nairobi and the Fiji Islands—to pick selected foreign players who will test their skills against the highly publicized American stars such as Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Sam Snead. The most intriguing figure of the PGA's newest tournament is not the format, however. It is the dough—the potfuls of it. A race apparently has developed among sponsors to see which can establish the fattest purses. The result is that dollars are cascading like small rivers into the pockets of the touring pros. The boys never had it so good.

That was the word Thursday from Ray Evans, chairman of a Chamber of Commerce group which is trying to sell 25,000 season tickets by May 15. Lamar Hunt, owner of the Dallas Texans, has promised to move his American Football League champions to Kansas City if the tickets are sold. "We're just as disappointed as we can be," Evans told campaign workers. "We've got our work cut out for us. If anybody thinks we are automatically going to have this ball club bere, they have another think coming. "Frankly, I thought we would have from 8,000 to 10,000 tickets sold by this time." The next report is scheduled next Tuesday. Evans said he hopes it will show the drive is within 70 to W per cent of its goal. Thursday's report showed that 44 Kansas City firms had bought 50 or more tickets. Only 97 had been sold outside the metropolitan area. The organization is counting only the sales backed up by actual payment of $49 for box seats or $42 for reserved seats. YEP, THEY'RE BITING — J. S.

Main CH 2-3224 National League Balks Still Plague Hurlers By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sporis Writer The problem plaguing pitchers and managers is trying to find some sort of yardstick for measuring a second in an attempt to halt the mushrooming number of balk calls disrupting action in National League games. Balk calls may have been the decisive factor for the first time Thursday as Willie Mays was waved home from third base twice in San Francisco's 6-3 victory over Houston. In all, five balks were called in the game. One balk was called at Milwaukee, where the Braves retained first place with their seventh straight victory, 6-5 over Philadelphia, and one was charged at St. Louis, where Pittsburgh edged the Cardinals 3-2. No balks were called as the Chicago Cubs whipped the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in the only other game scheduled. The three balks called on Houston pitchers in the game and the two against Giants' starter Jack Sanford, made a total of 11 for the three-game series in which Augie Donatelli's umpiring team strictly enforced the rule requiring a pitcher to pause a full second before delivery. Including the two balks called in other games. 39 have been charged in less than two weeks of the season. Donatelli's crew has called 20. The major league record is 76, set in 1950. There still has not been a balk called in American League games. The Giants led 3-2 going into the fifth inning. Mays opened with a double, moved to third on a balk call and eventually scored the decisive run on another balk call, both charged to reliver Russ Kemmerer. Mays then scored in the seventh on a balk call. George Brunet took the loss. The Braves won it with a run in the ninth contributed by the Phillies' fifth error. Hank Aaron led off with a double off loser Ray Gulp and came home when catcher Clay Dalrymple fired past third in an attempt to get Aaron on Norm Larker's bunt. Bill Virdon drove in his second run with a ninth inning single, giving the Pirates and Don Schwall the victory over the Cardinals. Schwall had to leave after eight innings with stomach pains. KlHoy Fare finished up. The Cubs made the most of three Dodger errors, scoring three unearned runs and beating Don Drysdale, now 2-1, for the first lime since 1960. Glen Hobbie, won it with ninth inning relief help from Don Elston. American League Much Sweeter On The Mound By WILL GR1MSLEY Associated Press Sports Writer The early returns are in on baseball's enlarged strike zone, and they come as no great surprise—the pitchers love it and the hitters are demanding a recount. With the major league season less than two weeks old, the game —for a change—is showing some mercy for the long-oppressed men who earn their living on the mound. It's no longer a batters' paradise. In the only two games played in the American League Thursday, pitchers carved out almost identical three-hit, 3-0 shutouts. That was the margin of veteran Ray Herbert's victory for the Chicago White Sox over the Kansas City Athletics. Dick Stigman of the Minnesota Twins duplicated the feat in beating the Los Angeles Angels, also 3-0. Herbert, sidelined for nine days with a stiff arm after being knocked out in his opener, came back powerfully. He served line drive singles to the first two men he faced—Dick Bowser and Joe Tartabull—and then settled down to retire 21 oi the next 22 men. Gino Cimoli got the only other safety, a single in the eighth. Dave Nicholson's first home run of the year was Chicago's big blow against loser Ed Rakow. . Stigman didn't permit a Los Angeles runner to get beyond second base and he allowed only one extra-base hit — a double by Jim Fregosi in the fifth. Earl Battey opened the Twins' scoring with a home run off starter Ken McBride in the second. The Minnesotans added two more in the fifth. It's Softball Time Again Ottawa's Andrews - Phillips 66 men's Softball team will hold its first practice session of the season Sunday, April 21, Gene Ramsey, manager, has announced. The session will be at 2 p.m. in Forest Park. Ramsey asks last year's players and anyone else interested in trying out for the team to attend the practice. Ottawa Boy Catches Prize Trout Ricky Patterson, Lincoln School Fifth grade, netted a rainbow trout that had a prize tag in its lip. Ricky was fishing in Lake Taneycomo, Mo. The prize trout contest is one of several events scheduled this season to celebrate the Golden Anniversary of Lake Taneycomo. All fishermen who have caught prize trout have been awarded merchandise prizes, and their names have been recorded for the jack pot drawing that will be held just prior to Labor Day. OHS Picks Pittsburg Ottawa High athletes left for the Pittsburg Relays this morning with Coach Orlis Cox to participate in the events OHS regularly attends there, but this year the Ottawa boys will have to miss two other relays they ordinarily take part in — the KU Relays and Argentine Relays. W. P. Shepard, OHS principal, said all three rleays were scheduled the same day this year due to the time Easter fell. Because of the three schedules Ottawa had to choose one and let the others go. Pittsburg was picked.

CH 2-4400-- 119 E. 2nd Tom Davis In Hospital LOS ANGELES (AP)-Tommy Davis, the best hitter in baseball last year, is in the hospital. If there are any more beds available, maybe the rest of the Dodger hitters should join him. He can't be much sicker than they look. Los Angeles, co-favored with San Francisco on the National League betting line in Las Vegas, has yet to play a game this season against a club that finished higher than eighth in 1962. After nine engagements with such formidable adversaries, the Dodgers have four victories and five losses. Except for offense and defense, they seem to have mastered every aspect of the game. Davis, who suffered a pulled hamstring muscle in an exhibition game March 31, was sent to the hospital Thursday night before the Dodgers dropped a 5-1 decision to the Chicago Cubs. The Dodgers said Davis will stay in the hospital at least a week, to make certain his ailing leg gets complete rest. Tommy led the major leagues in hitting last year with a .346 average, and in runs-batted-in with 153. After 85 1-3 innings, the Dodger pitching staff has an outstanding 1.47 earned-run average. But the club is scoring an average of only 1.90 runs every nine innings.
