The Bush Doesn't Taste Good Either Now it's my turn. Having sat back and observed the Bill Easton. Wade Stlnson al. fair and learning nothing substan. tlal, I might as well dive into the situation, despite my meager knowledge of the University of Kansas athletic department and its people. First of all, I wonder if any. one knows for sure what's going on at KU. The press has been loaded with yards of specula, tions and downright biting dia. tribes, yet has come up with noth. ing more than juicy heads, stabs, kicks, and very little concrete interpretation. Right now, about the only thing left is for Easton to be canonized or something. Funny, until this, he was the last person up for that honor. His ungentlemanllke verbal outbursts this week usually aren't the holiest of quallfi. cations either, yet his outstand. Ing record has apparently given him license. For all we know, Easton may have deserved what he got. KU won't really say, except that it's "regrettable." Hell yes it is. When Isn't it? So, it seems as though Wade Stinson Is the meanest man to venture into the sportswriters' wrath in a long time. Actually, for a man who stepped into an important job in one of the country's most alumni.tradltion. ridden colleges, he never had a chance. It all started when Stinson de. creed that KU's football team would not accept a bid to play in the Sun Bowl. He said the Chalk Talk By Terry Ostmeyer team's record was not good enough. Well, I'll go one better. I don't believe the team itself was good enough, regardless of the pud competition that played under the sun in that bowl. However, this is not to vindi. cate Stinson. I believe it Is mere, ly an example of what the man they now call "Johnny.come.late. ly" had to go against. And it'll be worse from now on. He'll never do right. All I know is that Stinson fired a coach, and all hell's damnation has been heaped upon him. Why he did it is the crux of the problem. Most everyone on the outside says it was for per. sonal reasons. If so, no one is a saint on Mt. Oread. Bill Boucek, Ottawa University track coach, said the other day that he felt the whole thing was in "bad taste." "They shouldn't settle their little conflicts in front of the world," Boucek said. "There's no doubt in my mind this thing couldn't have been settled by a little conversation." Boucek was talking about a personal conflict and if that's what it was, his reasoning seems sound. Here we have one of the coun. try's great coaches and an ath. letic director of a major college making folly over personality clashes—one was used to getting his way and suddenly didn't, and the other has never swayed from his straightforward, business, like manner. These two men couldn't sit down and talk it over, so now they are thrown into the spot, light, looking very much like spiteful amateurs. Next KU will woo Bob Timmons away from Oregon State to be* come the Jayhawks 1 new track coach and the guns will be heard across half a continent instead of just through Allen Field House. That, however, might throw some light on just what has been going on at KU.

(AP)—The Kansas Athletic board meets to* day to discuss a replacement for Bill Easton, fired Tuesday as head track coach. The first choice is Bob Timmons, former Kansas assistant and high school coach of Jim Ryun, an Olympic miler. It seems clear that Timmons can have the job, if he wants it and If Athletic Director Wade Stinson convinces him track is *nt being severely cut back financially—as Easton charged. Timmons has said he wouldn't consider the job if this hurt Easton in any way. Events Friday, however, apparently ended any chance of Easton being re. LA Needs To Win LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Lakers are in the unenviable position today of needing a victory over the Cel. tics on the Boston court to stay alive in the National Basketball Association championship play* offs. The Celts took another step toward their seventh consecu. tive NBA title Friday night with a 112-99 comeback victory at Los Angeles and now lead 3-1 in the best-of-7 series. The teams will meet in a na. tionally televised contest Sunday afternoon and seldom do the visitors enjoy much success in the Boston Garden. hired. First Stinson's action was giv« en the complete backing of Chancellor W. Clarke Wescoe, in his first public statement on the firing, at a meeting of the state Board of Regents in Hays, Kan. Then the board didn't discuss the matter at its meeting, which amounted to a decision by the board that it shouldn't interfere. Finally, Easton himself, at a Drake Relays Coaches' banquet in Des Moines, said, "My career apparently is ended in the field of track. I have no regrets." This may clear the way for the hiring of Timmons. Easton, 61, will end his head coaching duties June 30. His teams have dominated the Big Eight, winning 38 of a possible 53 team championships in cross country, indoor and outdoor track, plus two NCAA outdoor titles, in 1959 and 1960. His men won eight Olympic gold medals. The 40-year.old Timmons left Kansas only Monday to become head track coach at Oregon State. But Stinson was given per. mission by Slats Gill, Oregon State athletic director, to talk to Timmons about the KU job. Timmons and Gill had an oral agreement, but Gill's permission indicated he could be released to take the Kansas job. The names of other Kansas graduates have come up in con. nection with the KU job, includ. ing Bob Karnes of Drake, but Timmons has the inside track. Easton's firing was the latest development in a two.year bat. tie over athletic policy at Kan. sas. It's doubtful the hiring of Timmons would in itself restore peace, but it would give Stinson a lot of ammunition to answer his critics. This is because Ryun, a senior at Wichita, Kan., East High, likely would follow Timmons to Kansas. Ryun announced earlier he would follow Timmons to Ore. gon State. He broke his own na» tional prep mile record with a 4:02 Friday night at Hutchlnson. His career best is 3:59 in a non. prep mile. Should Mike Petterson, East senior who ran a 4:12 mile last week, decide to join Ryun, Tim. mons then would have two of the nation's top prep milers. East High teams coached by Tim. mons, won six state champion, ships. He joined the KU staff a year ago. MEN'S NIGHT HAWK LEAGUE MONTGOMERY WARD—3 High 10.30—A.

Wolgast, 465 By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer The Chicago White Sox, who applied for a passport to power when they engineered a compli. cated three-way trade for John, ny Romano, may find the elusive entry visa slipped into their hands by Inexperienced Danny Cater. A 25.year.old outfielder with less than a full season of major league experience, Cater hit a decisive homer and re. mained the American League's leading hitter with a .522 aver, age Friday night as the White Sox defeated Washington 5-3. The White Sox, realizing their power deficiency, moved to cor. rect the situation last winter by acquiring Romano from Cleve. land in the three-way deal that Mizzou Rips Villanova PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Something happened to Villano. va Friday in its bid for an unprecedented five relay victories in the Penn Relays. It ran into four of those "show me" lads from Missouri. Despite raw, rainy weather, everything started out accord* ing to script. Villanova, which in recent years has won enough races at the Penn Relays to re. tire the meet to its trophy case, set a meet record of 16:39.4 in edging Georgetown in the four mile. Oozing confidence, the Wildcats took the track for the dis. tance medley. But Noel Carroll, who ran a fine 4:10.3 mile in the four mile, ran a disappointing 1:59 half in the distance medley. Four other titles were decided Friday, Richard Johnston of Colgate taking the 400-meter hurdles in 51.4 seconds, Bob Steigerwald of Manhattan the discus with a toss of 175 feet, Vfe inch, Bill Crosetti of North, western the hammer throw at 193-91/2.

Cater, meanwhile, was ac. quired in a simple deal with the Philadelphia Phil, lies in exchange for pitcher Ray Herbert, figuring to stock the White Sox' depleted outfield corps. He had an impressive minor league record — but showed little power. He didn't show any with the Phillies either, hitting only one homer and driving in just 13 runs in 60 games despite batting .296.

But the Senators had built a 3-2 lead when Cater capped a sixth inning uprising that got the job done and brought Bobby Locker his first major league victory. The White Sox had tied the score just before Cater's clinch, er in their usual fashion — a walk, Don Buford's single and a grounder by Smoky Burgess. The Twins spotted the Tigers five runs in the first inning, tied the score in the eighth with a rally built on singles by Tony Oliva, Harmon Kille. brew and Earl Battey, and then won it in the 10th with just one hit. Jerry Zimmerman's single, following walks to Killebrew Jimmie Hall, provided the tie.breaking run in the 10th with another crossing when Jerry Lumpe dropped Cesar Tovar's pop up. The Indians showed a lot of early foot against the A's, making daring base running pay off for the only runs they needed. Dick Howser walked and stole second in a two-run first Inning, then came home on Colavito's double. Vic Davalillo opened the second inning with a single, raced to third when two succes. sive pickoff attempts backfired and scored on Camilo Carreon's single. Robin Roberts did most of the damage for the Orioles against the Red Sox, spacing nine hits and providing three runs with a bases-loaded double in the sec. ond inning. Jerry Adair of the Orioles tied a major league record for sec. ond baseman by playing in his 78th consecutive errorless game. The late Ken Hubbs set the record with the Chicago Cubs in 1962.
