PAGE 4 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE' ON THE SIDELINES By HAM R166 Yesterday we had the pleasure of announcing that Tipton had been selected by coach Marion Crawley for an invitation .to participate in tlie annual Holiday Tourney at Lafayette next Christmas week. Now we've got another surprise. In connection with that tournament, Crawley each year holds a Coaches Clinic at which outstanding exponents of various types of basketball address high school coaches from all over the state who assemble in Lafayette for the tourney. It was a surprised Dick Barr who heard that he has been selected as one of the Speakers at that Clinic. Congratulations Richard! We were discussing the invitation to that tourney' yesterday with Bob Hammel, president of the CIC sportswriters, and Bob was highly enthusiastic over both the invitation of a CIC team to the Lafayette tcurney and coach Barr, for whom Hsmmel is a very staunch supporter, as a speaker at the Clinic. Hammel viewed it as a very definite step into the big time for Tipton's basketball team. He said, "if a boy is of .Indiana All-Star caliber, he'll never have a better opportunity to demonstrate his ability and gain recognition from statewide coaches and the sportswriters who vote on All-Stars, than in that tourney." Lafayette of course, is picked as a strong contender for state championship honors both this year and next. • Bowling Results Wiih the local bowling tournaments now concluded, Farmers Loan and Trust emerged as the winning team with a handicap aver^ age of 3183.

OW-Timer Takes Look At Tourneys By Harry distort i When it comes to picking sectional' winners, the state's top choosers usually mfis 14 to 28 in their selections. The 1962 goal derby looks about normal in that respect. The fans always appreciate surprises, but there don't appear, to be too many in store this year. In 27 sectionals this viewer sees no serious obstacles for bis choices, as follows: Boonville—Casjle Olinton—Rockville Covingotn—Attica E. Chicago—EC Washington Greensburg—Greensburg Lafayette—Laf.

These sectionals are at Brownsburg, Kendallville, Kentland, Milan, Rushville, and Salem. I see two or three contenders in each of the other 31 sectionals.

(UPI)—Bob Turley's dream today is to go back four years and he hopefully finds "all the signs very encouraging." Turley is the big righthander who led the American League with 21 victories for the New York Yankees in 1958. It earned him honors as the top professional athlete of the year along with the $10,000 Hickok belt. Then the roof started to sag and it fell in on him completely last year. The (strapping 31-year-old from East St Louis, 111.; had two mediocre seasons as his arm started to act up and last year he won only three games and wasn't able to pitch after July. "I thought it would clear up with rest but last spring I felt it worse than ever," he remembered. "It got worse and worse until finally I had to quit altogether. Worried? I was sick" Operation Was Needed But Turley, after desperately trying just one inning of relief in September, finally realized that the knife was the only answer. "They found quite a mess," he explained as he sat in the dugout after a long workout as one of the early birds of the Yankee ^training camp. '"There were a couple of bone chips rattling around in there, a couple of bone spurs and! some inflamed tendons." The wait for the start of spring training was one of the longest periods of Turley's life^ For a man never knows whether the surgeon's scalpel will leave his arm as strong and skillful as it was before. ' "But all the signs now are very encouraging," says Turley, who many thought had come to the end of the road. 'Tve been throwing real-loose for about fifteen minutes every day, including batting practice, and I haven't had a bit of pain. The difference Muncie—Central Burris Peru—Peru, North Caston Plymouth—'Rochester, Bourbon Princeton—Princeton, Fort Branch South Bend—Central, Adams Southport—Southpprt, Indpls. Washington Sullivan—Sullivan, Carlisle, North Central Switz City—Linton, L&fM (Lyons) i Vincenhes—Bicknell, Vincennes :.• Washington— 'Logootee', Washington If there. is to be any fireworks in the sectionals, look for it at Evansville, Gary, Indianapolis, and Peru. —The Old Timer is wonderful and I really '• feel better about being able to do the job." Yank Pitching Wobbled It would make the Yankees happy, top. Manager Ralph Houk took the pennant and the World Series in his freshman year at the Yankee helm 'but it was touch and go at too many intervals as his pitching staff wobbled continually. A well and effective Turley bould be the difference between winning.once again and possibly losing to one of the hungry contenders. Turley, a quiet, serious young man, looks .at his chances in a calm, analytical imannor and makes no extravgant claims. "I've got a whole year to get back because as little as I pitched last year just about cancels out the whole season for me," he explained. "Which means that I've got a lot of work ahead of me to regain that winning touch. "The way to. get that back," he added, "is to get off good and pitch regularly. I'm sure that I still have my basic pitches so that all I. should have to do is work for condition and control." But only time will give him the answer, he admitted . "The exhibition games will tell a lot and by the end of spring training," he said, "I should have a good idea what's ahead. But you don't mind the work and the waiting as long, as nothing hurts." The Yankees, too, are waiting —and watching. They won it without him but in a league where •they are everybody's number one target the "old" Turley of 1958 well could be the decisive edge. OLYMPIC STAR DIES PHILADELPHIA (UPI) — Dr. Josiah C. McCracken, a former Olympic star and a one-time football All-America at the University of Pennsylvania, died at a nursing home Thursday. Dr. McCracken finished. second in the shot put in the 1900 Olympics and then went to China in 1906 where he served as a medical missionary for more than 30 years. He was 87 at his death. REJECTS STUDENT BID NEW YORK (UPI)—The Very Rev. Laurence J.- McGinley, S.J"., president and rector of Fordham University, has.rejected a student appeal for the return of competitive football "on a small-timt, non-scholarship basis."' ! Father McGinley' said that the university board bi athletics was unanimous in its decision and of the opinion that a return to football "would be unrealistic and perhaps irresponsible." Pinch Hitter Gets $23,500 Contract By FRED DOWN United Press International General manager Bill DeWift of the Cincinnati Reds agrees today with National League pitchers who've said right along that pinch-hitter Jerry Lynch is a mighty tough hombre when the cash is on the. line. Lynch batted a cool .404 as a pinch hitter last season and announced he wanted plenty of cold cash in return To prove it, he rejected DeWitt's first two salary offers and then went to Cincinnati Thursday to confront the boss in person. • N. Li. pitchers predicted the're­ sult unanimously: Husky Jerry hit a fast ball right-back into DeWnTa teeth. Then DeWitt relented, husky Jerry smiled and said he'd even brush up a bit on his fielding and the two agreed to a salary estimated at $23,500. "•It's time pinch hitters received /the same recognition accorded: top relief pitchers," said Lynch, who numbered five, home runs among his 1961 pinch hits. "And I figure it's tune I set a salary precedent." ; . Gets High Salary , Lynch, who is viewed primarily as a pinch-hitter although he did bat .315 in 96 games for the season, is pulling down one of the highest salaries in history for his specialty. Johnny Mize probably earned $25,000 to $27,000 as a pinch-hitting specialist for the Yankees and Dusty Rhodes may have been paid $20,000 by the Giants rafter his fabulous, pinch- hitting exploits of 1954. Pitcher Ralph Terry (16-3) and utility- man Hector Lopez (.222) signed with the world champion Yankees—each for. about $24,000-. Roger Maris, Elston Howard, Cletis Boyer and Bobby Richardson are the unsigned Yankees of whom general" manager Roy Harney j remarks: "I expect-no trouble at all from Howard, Boyer or Richardson." Maris', whose 61 homers last season made him baseball's hew all-time»home run king, .is believed to be demanding. $75,000 compared to an offer of $60,000 by the club. Dodgers . Sign Davis ; The Los Angeles Dodgers revealed the: signing of fleet outfielder Willie Davis, who.had a .254 average in 128 games last season, j The 21-year-old outfielder said' he is looking forward to playing'. in the Dodgers' 'new Chavez .Ravine home rather than going through another year in. the tricky Coliseum where he hit oniy- .203 in J961 j. Pitchers Gary!'Bell, and Bob Allen of the Cleveland. Indians Beatty Attempts Mile Tonight NEW YORK (UPI)-Jim Beatty, fully aware that ne can't work any track magic without the necessary "rabbits," warned everyone: not to expect another four- minute mile in the New York A.C. meet tonight although he'll do his best to "hurry things up." But track fans are hard to convince, so a lot of them at adi- son Square Garden possibly will still be looking for the 27-year-old Lbs Angeles Track Club ace to duplicate or at least approach the world indoor record of 3:58.9 he set last Saturday. And those who' take Beatty at his -word, may turn their attention toward shot putter Gary Gubner in the hope of seeing him break the world indoor record of 63 feet, 1014 inches he established two weeks ago. . . "When you talk about another four-minute mile, you need- somebody in the race to push you," said Beatty. "I want to give the fans'a good race, but it's not up to me alone." ,-. Beatty means there is no indication - that any of his. competitors in the Baxter Mile will set a, pace. for him as two of his teammates, Laszlo. Tabori and Jim • Grelle, did . in Los Angeles last week." His three Baxter rivals will be two Marines, Pete Close "and Cary Weisiger, John Reilly of Georgetown and Tom O'Hara of Loyola of Chicago, each of whom is interested in winning the race himself. Beatty indicates it would take ideal conditions for another four- minute mile and he makes it plain he doesn't expect to get them from Close; Weisiger, Reilly or O'Hara. FRI.„ FEBRUARY 16, 1962.

By MARTIN LADER United Press International Billy (The Hill) McGill is reaching for the sky. The 6-9 Utah beanpole, the nation's leading marksman, moved into ninth place among the all- time list of major college scorers by tallying 45 points Thursday night as the Redskins trampled New Mexico, 90-65.
