PAGE 4 r THE TIPTON DAILY TBIBUNI' •FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 1962 Blue Devils Decisive Track Victor Over Logansport 68 to41 Ridan Captures Prep For Derby By JOHN G.~ DIETRICH United Press International LEXINGTON, Ky. (UPD—Man­ ny Ycaza must choose between Ridan and Donut Kin 2 for his Kentucky Derby mount, but those who saw him pilot ltidan to a four-length victory in the Blue Grass Stakes figure it will be an easy choice. Ridan simply overpowered a field of seven other Derby eligi- bles as he went the mile and one eighth Derby prep at Keeneland Thursday in 1:47 3-5—just a fifth off Round' Table's track record— and worked out the mile and a quarter Derby route in a.sizzling 2:01. . . Decidedly Second Decidedly, who finished second by better than two lengths over pace-setting Roman Line, also earned his way into the Derby but showed no signs of handling Ridan. As the Derby picture shifted to Churchill Downs, where the seven- furlong Stepping Stone purse comes up on opening day Saturday. Ridan clearly moved up alongside Sir Gaylord as the two to beat in the Run for the Roses. Calumet Farm trainer Jimmy Jones voiced -what must have been a near-unanimous consensus of the 10.016 racing fans who watched the' Blue Grass when he said. ••The Derby now is between Ridan and Sir -Gaylord." ' Yeaza had Kieian out of the gate on top. then held him just off flie pace set by Roman Line and, for a spell down the backstretch. Areopolis. When Ycaza moved Mrs. .Moody Jolley's colt out on the final turn, the issue was quickly settled. Crimson Satan, last year's 2- year-old champion who had been promising- hotter things after a dismal"~winter season, was a disappointing fifth, behind Roman Line and Darby Dan's Black Beard. The other Derby eligibles in the Blue Grass—Prince Dale, Boone County and Aeropolis—displayed Cardinals Gain Ground In N:L Pennant Race By FRED DOWN rcual, who also singled in a run, The laughs have turned to spaced out nine hits and struck cheers for Bob Gibson — a fellow out seven en route to his third who started in professional sports win of the season. \ as a "clown" but is turning out I The Milwaukee Braves beat the to be quite a pitcher. The 26-year-old native of Omaha, -ivteb., broke into organized sport as a member of the Harlem Globetrotters in 1957-58. The Globetrotters like to win but'mak­ ing people laugh at their antics is their (bread and butter. The Cardinals, on the other hand, are interested in the very serious business of ending 15 Philadelphia Phillies/ 10-4, and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Chicago Cubs, 12-5, .in other NL games. In the American League, the Detroit Tigers topped the Kansas City A's, 11-7, the Cleveland Indians won .over the Los Angeles Angels, 6-4, and the Boston Red Sox scored an 8-7 win over the Washington Senators. Rookie Tommy Aaron, younger years of competitive failure and i brother of the famous Hank, inning their, first National i d - ov l m four runs with a three League pennant since 1946. And with.Gibson firing bullets to help round out a staff of strong arms it is possible that the Redbirds will Accomplish just that.. The Cardinals swept to their eighth victory in 11 games Thursday night when they beat the Houston Colts, 3-2. b^.ind over-powering, near-no-l:;t pitching of the 6-1, 185-pound right­ hander. .Gibson pitched no-hit ball until Roman Mejias opened the eighth with a homer, walked only two batters and struck out five. When he completed the seventh inning, Gibson, who had a 13-12 record in 1961, had pitched 10 consecutive hitless innings, including the last three against the Cubs on Sunday. , Score On Wildness Gibson's wildness led to a Houston run in the second inning but the Cardinals tied the score on Julian Javier's fourth-inning homer and went ahead on a run-scoring single by'Julio Gotay in the seventh. Stan. Musial singled in Curt Flood with the winning run in the eighth. Camilo Pascual, another hard- throwing right-hander, pitched the run homer and a double to lead the Braves' 11-hit attack producing their third straight win. Catcher Del Crandall had a two- run double and lefty Bob Hendley pitcheo three-hit ball for seven innings for • the victory. Willie Davis hit two homers [ and Tommy Davis and Wally Moon had ,three hits each for the Dodgers, who were also helped by six Cub errors. Ernie Banks horn ered for the Cubs moving him past Rogers Hornsby to-No. 18 on the all-time NL home run list. Banks has 303 homers. A two-run homer by Al Kaline and a two-run pinch triple by B^-bba Morton were the big blows of Detroit's seven-run seventh-inning rally. Lefty Hank Aguirre shut out the A's with one hit for the last four innings to win his first game of the season while Bob Grim was the loser. Sam McDowell, 19-year old bonus boy, won his first major league game with four innings of hitless relief for the Indians.

Baker Looks Good • And while on basketball, we stop-1 ped at the local courts aX Tipton Park last night and' after a few moments of watching have to label big Mike Baker as a GREATLY improved basketball player over last season. The big fellow is. now starting to make his second and third jump for those rebounds, and, instead of just getting the rebound, he's now tipping the ball in. Nice going Mike, and. that sort of work will pay off for you and for Tipton next winter. Glad to see another big fella', Butch Myers, back on the scene . . . and if freshman Billy Moore doesn't make the starting five next Fall as a sophomore we'll eat that new straw hat we just.bought. He's big, strong, and is literally running, his heart out in track to improve his speed, footwork and coordination. Last Tuesday at Peru, the Tigers actually had their cheerleaders out at the track .leading a delegation of fans and when Peru won one of its three first places in the half mile relay, you'd have thought they won the meet itself. Plea to The Gals Saturday Tipton will toe going after its fourth championship in a row in^the Kokomo Class. B Relays. Next Friday evening at Peru (or Huntington) the Devils will be seeking their .third consecutive Central Indiana Conference track championship. The gals who make up our cheering section have done a splendid job for themselves, the school and the community in football and in basketball. It would be a fine token of appreciation to the iboys who are. winding up their school career this year in track, if the gals got behind them and organized a cheer section for the CIC meet, the only championship in any sport (we include cross country as a track sport) in which Tipton has won the crown in recent yeaxts ... how afltout it Sals? Horses For Courses Looking ahead to the Derby . . . that race turned in by Ridan yesterday in the closing Stakes event (Continued on page 6) Satans Defend Ko Relays Title Satu Tipton's cindermen made their I final prep for- Saturday's Eokomo | Relays a winning one by defeating |.the trackmen from Logansport Thursday afternoon,- capturing the varsity meet by a score of 68-41 and winning the B-team meet 7534. , ••• The race was run over' a lightning fast track which will in two more weeks be the scene of Tipton's debut in the 1362 track Sectional, but a heavy wind blowing down, the straightaway prevented any. possibility of records. Only one upset occurred during the -meet.and that was when Tipton's high point man,, Donnie. Lankford,' and Logansport's Wolf, both undefeated until their clash, met in the' low hurdles. Lankford got off'into a slight early lead but midway in the 180 yard duel -knocked over one hurdle which set him back on even terms with Wolf. Again on the next to last .hurdle Lankford again- clipped the barrier and. appeared to; ease up after that, trailing the Berry ace by several yards as they crossed the finish line in a very good 20.5 clocking after bucking the wind all the way; Good 1Q0 Lankford was a triple winner, despite his second in the' low hur- des, running into a strong' headwind to take first place in the 100 yard dash in a very good 10.3 seconds. He took only two,jumps to reach 19'6V6" in the broad jump and i that stood up for victory as no one j else reached 19 feet, then: gained another blue ribbon when he cleared 11 feet in the pole vault. The. strong-legged Tipton junior the? ran the anchor leg on the winning half-mile relay team. -.. Wolf, a senior at Logansport, also turned in an excellent job in the high hurdles when he edged Tipr ton's Danny Shaw in 15.4. Shaw showed good improvement however in getting 'down to 15.8 seconds for the first time .this year and should toe ready next week for a key performance when the CIC championships are decided. I Best 440 Another jexcelent effort was turned in by, Jim Garmon in the 440. •paced 'himself, well. and behind to win toy a yards in the 440 which he covered in his fastest time of the year, a very good 52.5 seconds. Garmon then came back just a few minutes later with a- second place finish in the 220, won by Wasson of] Logan in 24.5, and then in the half mile relay showed that when rested he could master Wasson by surviving a foul'and passing to hand off a lead on |leg of the race which the Berry .the first Tipton won. ^ Roe Easy Victor Joe Roe], taking the lead from the start and ahead by 100 yards at the: finish, negotiated the mile run in 4:37.4. Parmeter, a. cross country star for Logansport for several years, was never near to Roe, but forced Tipton's Jim Hoover to run Parmeter's race and it wasn't until, .the final lap that the Tipton boy got past him to capture a good second place in the mile in a comparatively slow clocking of 4:53.4. . Mike Haley took the lead at the start of the half mile run and never relinquished it, getting the distance in 2:06.9 to stamp himself as a contender in the CIC next week. Win Both Relays Lowes of Logansport edged.Bob Powell of Tipton in .the shot put with a toss of 48'7*", but sophomore Steve VanHorn made it close' with a .third place. Mike Kurtz of Tipton cleared 5'7" but bowed to Oldham of Logansport who cleared 5'8" on his final jump in the high jump. Tipton won the 'mile relay by a substantial margin, although on the first two legs of the race it was a nip and tuck'affair. Jim Long raced to a lead in the first leg of the race only to see the Logan runner battle back to even terms as they handed off their batons. Weger took an excellent handoff to sprint into another lead but again has adversary battled back at the finish to cross the line on even terms. Joe Roe opened up a 10 yard lead in the third leg and; Danny Shaw hiked the .margin to about 25 yards in the final leg of the race In the half mile relay, Jim Garmon was fouled as the Logan runner cut in on him just before.they reached the first turn and Garmon was forced to pull up but as they came out of the turn (Gannon overtook his opponent ana gave a slight lead .to Kersten who again had trouble on the handoff but kept on even terms to hand off' to Jim Rice. Rice opened up a dear lead on . his opponent and Lankford started off five yaFds in front and finished-with about a 12 yard margin. - j- : - B-Results •••:'•' • In the B-team racing, Harvey Harmon and.Billy Moore set Tipton, off in front in the high hurdles when they took first and second places. Tipton then .captured first and second in the mile run with- Sowders and- Ripberger, in that order, and the Devils held a 16-2 lead. Maple; a brother of Logan- sports recently graduated sprint" champion Mike; edged Bill Elliott in, the 11.4 100-yard dash, but Tipton swept ,the 440 with Skip Weger's .winning time a creditable 55.9, his best of the year. Don Inlow. came from behind with - another game efiort in the 880 to take that, .race in 2;18.5. Maple took 'the 220, again edging Bill Elliott- and Bill Moore, but Mike Kurtz and Harvey- Harmon took first and second in the low hurdles in 23.7. Reeder edged team- mateWeger in the 411" shot; .Logansport, swept the brpad jump tout Dick. Mcintosh took the high jump at 5'4" and then the Blue Devils swept both relays, Hoover, Mcintosh, Reeder and Haley teaming for victory in the mile, and London, Richards, Moore and Feightner' capturing the half mile relay..

B/OSCAR FRALEY UP) Sports Writer NEWyTORK (UPD — Jimmy Demare^has a set of golf clubs which look^Hke they were barely saved from a smelter and therein, lies a lesson, for the average golfer as he. gets ready to start the fairway season in earnest. Demaret's sticks have been altered beyond recognition. Weight has been added in heel, toe or sole, welded on and buffed off un-. til the. numbers, long since have been obliterated. "I never get through tinkering with them," says jovial James, who at 54 still was good enough to team with Sam Snead and win the Canada Cup for Uncle Sam. "That's because I change all the time; not the clubs," Which should give you an idea concerning your clubs as "you grow older, and stronger; or weaker, as the case may be. You are changing constantly and so must your, weapons.' Arnold Seeks Putter The- pros realize this fully. Every one of them constantly is having new clubs made to speci- - fication. Maybe the face of a wood is shaved back a fraction for additional loft; the heads weisiited or the shafts changed. Arnold Palmer has been trying for months to get an "exact duplicate*' of his favorite putter, to •'feel" just like the original. "I added weight, then I shaved it off bit 'by. bit." he frowned.." just can't seem to right." Palmer worries more about his putting, than any other part of his fabulous game. He is known among the pros as a man who putts too boldly, usually stroking past the cup. But when they're dropping, it's Katy bar the door. So the importance of his putter and its "feel" is paramount to him.- The "feel" of your sticks makes a tremendous difference, too, whether you're a low handicap player or a hacker. Without this being'a merchandising plug, you get that word straight from; Spalding's-John St. Clair, a club-making specialist for '3 years.. 70,000' Special Orders . St! Clair heads a busy department which handles some 70.000 special orders each year. The touring pros on the staff such as Jay Hebert. Gene Littler, Jerry Barber' and Paul Runyan, are among liis best customers but he also has turned out to specification sticks for such as President Eisenhower. Jim (Maverick) Garner and comedian George Gobel. Xo matter what kind of clubs you prefer. St. Clair suggests that you go to a qualified professional to get "fitted." . "The shaft is the heart of the game.." he explains. "So have a pro observe your swing, strength, size of hands, length of arms and general physical characteristics. They're all' important. The pro will make certain you have the proper head' weight, grip weight, shaft weight and length and swing: weight." - . Have you ever wondered why the faces of wood clubs are bulged and not those of the irons? .Confusing Answer ."On the woods,'" says St. Clair, "the center of gravity is an inch to the rear of the center of the. face and on the iron club approxi- (Continued en page 6) Ross & Doggett Body Shop PAINT, GLASS & BODY REPAIR, FRONT WHEEL ALIGNMENT *t$ E.
