DAILY TRIBUNE, SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 1962 5 CENTS PER COPY. 30 CENTS PER WE El? 3500 DEMOCRATS TO EAT STEAKS IN ' W : • Donovan Hurls ,4th Victory of Season For Hot Cleveland By FRED DOWN UP I Sports Writer There ought to be a reward out today for Gabe Paul — a guy who got a 1.000 pitcher for a .179 hitter — and two "bonus" players besides. Paul pulled the Jesse James act last winter when he acquired Dick Donovan, •Gene Green, and Jim Mahoney for the Cleveland Indians by trading Jimmy Piersall to the Washington Senators. It was a deal that took courage- courage like the Dalton boys had. Cleveland fans hated to see Piersall go but they're happy today because they obtained the hottest pitcher of the 1962 baseball season to date. Donovan, 10-10 with a league- leading 2.40 earned run average for the Senators last season, reeled off his fourth straight triumph of '62 Friday night with a six-hit, 7-2 win over the Minnesota Twins that kept the Indians in the American League lead. He.s allowed a total of five runs in his four victories which include two shutouts. Piersall, meanwhile, has five hits in 28 tries for a .179 season average. Loses Shutout Woody Held and rookie Ty Clint each hit a two-run homer to pace a nine-hit ^Indian attack. Donovan had a shutout until the ninth when Harmon Killebrew and Zoilo Versalles hit homers. . New York outscored Washington, ]0-8, Detroit walloped Los Angeles, 13-4, Chicago lopped Boston, 7 -4, and Kansas , City downed Baltimore, 14-5, in other American League games. In the National Leagua Milwaukee edged out Huston, 2-1, St. Louis routed Cincinnati, 14-3, Philadelphia beat New York, 11-9, Los Angeles topped Pittsburgh, 7-2, and San Francisco shaded Chicago, 5-4. Clete Boyer hit a grand slam liomer and Elston Howard and Pioger Maris also homered as the Yankees built up an early 9-0 lead and hung on for the victory in the face of Washington rallies led by John Schaive, Gene Woodling and Chuck Cottier. Bill Stafford, who went 5 1-3 innings, received credit for his first win of the season while Pete Burnside was the loser. Bill Bruton, Al Kaline and Rocky Colavito each drove in three runs for the Tigers who, in addition to 12 hits, were helped by eight walks, three Los Angeles errors, a hit batsman vid a passed ball. Jim Bunning went six innings to win his second straight: decision for the Tigers. |( Nelson Fox' seventh-inning single was the key hit in the White Sox' victory which snapped a three-game Red Sox winning streak. Fox, Jim Landis and Floyd Robinson had two hits each for the White Sox. 18-Hit Attack Gino Cimoli hit two triples, two doubles and a single to lead an 18-hit bombardment that brought Ed Rakow his third win. Jim Gentile homered for the Orioles who were scored on in all but two innings. Bob Shaw pitched a four-hitter and struck out six batters enabling the Braves to score their victory over the Colts. Hank Aaron drove in the decisive run for the Braves with a triple that followed an error by Houston second-baseman Joe Amalfitano. Bobby Shantz was the loser. Curt Simmons pitched his third straight complete victory of the season behind a St. Louis offense featured by two doubles and a single by Ken Boyef. Wally Post, Frank Robinson and Carl Sawatski homered in this one with 1961 . 1-game winner Joey Jay suffering his third defeat. Mets Lose 12th Johnny Callison's four hits led the Phillies' 15-hit attack and helped deal the Mets . their 12th loss in 13 games. The Mets came close on Ed Bouchee's three-run eighth inning homer — but still no cigar for Casey Stengel and bis hapless club, which is mired deep in the NL cellar. (Cortrlnuad on page I) Tipton, Roosevelt Defending Champs In Relays Today The finest track team in. the • state, and perhaps in the nation as far as high school circles are concerned, will be on exhibition this afternoon in the Kokomo Relays when coach Don Leek brings his famed Gary Roosevelt Panthers to the home of the Wildcats. Roosevelt is the defending State Champion and heavily favored to repeat again this year with a number of the "season best" record holders on its team. It is also the defending Kokomo Relays champion in the Class A event, and its presence accounted for the withdrawal of Richmond from the Kokomo Relays this year. Competing with Roosevelt for the Class A crown will be Kokomo, Anderson, Muncie Central and Marion. Tipton will return for the defense of its Class B title with bitter opposition expected this year from Nappanee and Bremen. Other schools competing in the Class B meet are Auburn, Edinburg, Garrett and Rossville. Top performer in the Class A will be brother of the coach. Clay Leek who' has run the high hurdles in 14.5 seconds, the lows in 19.7 and runs anchor of .the 1:31 half mile relay team. Other top notch Class A athletes include Roosevelt's Larry Hood who-has a 9.7 in the 100 yard dash, and a 21.2 in the 220; Walter Little with -a 50.7 in the-MB|- : and Jim Harris who has negotiated ' the half mile run in 1:56.8; Jim Boyce of Muncie just a week ago soared 13' 2*" in the pole vault. Weddle of Nappanee and Tipton's Don Lankford will be the most prominent performers in the Class B. Weddle has turned in a 10.0 effort in the 100 yard dash and a 22.2 in the 220. Lankford's 19.8 in the low hurdles and 10.1 in the century are enough to stamp him as an attraction, and a Class B record of 10.2 set 'by Gore of Mississinewa in 1955 Is h'kely to go by the, records in the dash. Tipton holds five of the Kokomo Class B records. Arcy Garmon has the 1,000 yard run mark of 2:24.6 set in 1958. Tim Renie has the low hurdles record of 21.3 low hurdles mark'and that appears likely to fall in today's competition. Tipton also holds the medley relay mark of 7:57:2 set in 1958; the middle distance relay of 6:03.4 set in 1958 and the 1,500 yard relay of 2:57.4 set in 1958 and the 1,500 yard relay of 2:57.4 set in 1959.

Golf Widow Natalie Divorces Wagner SANTA MONICA, Calif.

"The last year of our marriage," Miss Wood told Judge Allen T. Lynch, "Mr. Wagner preferred to be off by himself. He was always telling me he was going out to play golf and didn't have time to discuss our problems." Miss Wood, 23, recently linked romantically with actor Wai-ren Beatty, separated from Wagner, 32, on Aug. 15. 1961. They were married in Scottsdale, Ariz., Dec. 28, 1957. Miss Wood obtained the uncontested divorce on grounds.of men tal cruelty. She sought no alimony. ' Chorus Presents Twenties With Verve, Kindness The Tipton high school choral department donned - rose-colored glasses as they prepared and presented to an audience of more than 350 Friday night the pageant of reminiscence .they called "The Roarin' Twenties." (Editor's note: It was prohibition and the scars of war that made the twenties roar. "Battling a mood of despair brought about the pose of devil-may-care which characterized the period.) - Last night's presentation amounted to a whitewash job on the bizarre era, in which the Twenties purred rather than roared, The audience could have written •the best, review of the production if their response could have been captured in a choice 300 words. They enjoyed it. It was a . good show, and .great entertainment. Who cares if its appeal was more to the eye than to- the ear? But even musically, it had its moments. . As promised, the costumes were colorful and stunning. All numbers were "cute," and pleasant eyefuls many, but the first well-done musical number was sixth on the program—the Hoover Sisters rendering "Whispering." Holly, Gene Anne, Kathy, LaMona, and Lenah hanmonized on this one. Ronnie Thomas' accordion number was good, and Arlene Harlow gave a tingling performance on the piano of Gershwin's "Rhapsody in •Blue". The promise or Reid Pickett's voice was indicated again, although he sang "I've Got Rhythm" at too fast a pace. • Piano, drums, and choir.function­ ed together to'make the Charleston one of the best numbers of the program. Dancers Mary Jane Coy, Brenda Grimme, Lynn Coe, Bob Kurtz, Eddie Pheanis, and Roy Gibson proved the Charleston was a lovelier dance .than the twist, and a better form'of exercise. V I liked the way Eddie Pheanis "beltedoutV the'song, "Five Foot Two." - The closing choir number before intermission, "Sleep", was well sung. I'm inclined to. thank Heaven whenever I h^r the phrase, "There's No Business Like Show Business," but it provided a pretty dance under special lighting, with Daisy iBurris, Linda Doss, Virginia Brannum, Sandy Griffy, Lynn Coe, Brenda Grimme, and Claudia Surber doing the stepping. Rita Elliott, perched on the piano, sizzled in the number "Am I Blue." "Carolina Moon" was good listening as sung 'by the beauty Shop Quartet, Daisy, Linda,' Sandy, and. -Claudia. Considered as a recreation in which the participants revel and on .which the parents dote, the program provided a very successful evening. Former Tipton Man Teaching Painting AtPenn State U.

"Some -have ability and don't know it," Professor Case one time explained, "and others have no ability and don't- know it. It's our job' to squeeze it out of them—if they have it." . *"• . Much of Professor Case's time outside of the classroom has been spent in painting and in recent years he has specialized in liturgical art'. He has exhibited widely throughout the East. = During his £arly- years at Penn State he did much of the commercial art appearing' in University publications. Professor Case has served since 1927 as art adviser to La Vie, the senior class annual, which over the years has won .many top honors, including six All-American Awards of the Associated Collegiate Press., In 1952, the staff dedicated tho. book to Professor Case who "has been the guiding hand 'oL.
