Timmons Takes KU Post With Assurance Of No Cut Ottawa Herald, Monday, April 26, 1965 PageJS LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Bob Timmons has given up the head track coaching post at Oregon State to succeed his former boss veteran Bill Easton, as head track coach at Kansas, amid assurances the Kansas track program won't be cut down. Easton, fired last Tuesday in a dispute with Athletic Director Wade Stinson, praised Timmons and said he was happy his for. mer assistant got the job. The 61.year.old Easton may be con. side red for the Oregon State post. His Kansas teams won two NCAA crowns and 38 Big Eight titles. The 40.year.old Timmons was given clearance by A.G. (Slats) Gill, Oregon State athletic di. rector, to accept the Kansas of. fer. Timmons had an oral agreement with Gill about the job, but found a telephone note from Stinson waiting for him when he arrived Monday at Cor. vallis. Timmons said he wouldn't consider it as long as any chance remained that Easton might be reinstated. This chance disappeared Friday when Stin. son was strongly backed by Chancellor W. Clarke Wescoe and the state Board of Regents decided not to interfere. The KU athletic board ap. proved the hiring of Timmons after a four-hour session Saturday. Timmons will receive $10,. 000 a year and also will serve as director of the KU Relays. "I was told track would be continued on the same high lev. el it was under Bill Easton," Timmons said. "It is undoubted, ly one of the great track jobs In the country." Stinson said "there is no chance of any cut" in the Kan. 5.9'/2 effort, and Lyndon's Ken Colberts on won the mile in 4:38.3.

Easton had charged he would be able to take only four boys on scholarships next fall be. cause of rising tuition, com. pared to nine last fall and that Stinson already had cut $2,000 on equipment. Timmons developed Olympic miler Jim Ryun and Oregon's Archie San Roman! Jr. and won six state team crowns at Wlch. ita, Kan., East High. Ryun had announced earlier he would follow Timmons to Oregon State. It's considered likely he'll now switch to Kan. sas. "It is Jim's decision," Tim. mons said. "I'd like to hope the fact I coached Jim wasn't the reason I was hired." Timmons, a 1950 KU grad. uate, will do the recruiting this spring while Easton stays on to direct the squad through June 30. The hiring of Timmons won't by itself restore harmony in the two-year dispute over Kansas athletic policy. But it strength, ened the position of Stinson, 38, a Chicago insurance man be. fore Wescoe hired him 14 months ago. Stinson made a strong state, ment Saturday on athletic poll, cy and made a plea for Kansas boosters to close ranks. "We are trying to be best and not mediocre in every sport," Stinson said. "We can accept nothing less. "It's been a try. ing, regretable week, but we are now looking to the future." Team Efforts Share First Billing With Weight Star DES MOBMES, Iowa (AP) — Strong man Randy Matson of Texas A&M was voted the out. standing athlete, but little Southern University of Baton Rouge, La., might lay claim to that honor in last weekend's record.bristling Drake Relays. Matson, who easily shattered Drake shot-put and discus marks, received 16 votes as the oustanding athlete in a press box poll, and got strong com. petition from Southern's Theron Lewis. Lewis, 1964 Olympian and national collegiate indoor 440 champion, got 11 ballots as key man In Southern's sweep of four of the six college-division relay events, three In record-breaking times. The 6-foot 7, 260-pound Mat. son uncorked a 63-11V4 shot put, approximately four feet under his world's best toss of 67-11 ] /4 on April 10. He won the discus with a flip of 191.2V 2 . Matson conceded he was tired after a high-pressure spring in which he lofted the Iron ball 67. 9 in the Texas Relays and 65.10% In the Kansas Relays. Saturday's closing session, conducted on a puddle-spotted track and in windy, 45-degree weather, failed to bog down Lewis and his swift Southern U. mates. Southern won the 440, 880, mile and sprint medley baton events, setting Drake records in all except the sprint medley. Lewis streaked to an amazing 45.4 anchor quarter-mile as Southern set a Drake college mile relay mark of 3:06.5. He also contributed a slick 220 final leg in Southern's romp to a 1:23.2 record in the 880 relay. And he led off with a good 440 leg on the Baton Rouge school's sprint medley triumph. OU, Hawks Each Win Ottawa University and Rockhurst College split a spring sports doubleheader here Saturday with OU taking tennis meet, 4-3, and the Hawks winning the golf, 10.5. The Braves went down to the last match in tennis, the No. 2 doubles, the pull out the net victory, while Rockhurst coasted the golf victory behind medalist Greg Klapp's 18-hole score of 73.

Triple Triple Not Won Fourth Title In 9 Years PINEHURST, N.C. (AP) — Four North and South Women's Amateur Golf Championships in nine years. That's the record of Barbara Mclntire, two.time winner of the national title, who has become the third most fre. quent winner of the 63.year.old classic. Her l.up victory over Nancy Roth in Saturday's 18.hole final left the dimpled 30.year.old from Colorado Springs, Colo., within striking distance of two records that seemingly were untouchable. Mrs. Estelle Lawson Page won seven North and South tl. ties In 11 years, starting In 1935. Glenna Collett took six, from 1922 through 1939. Barbara, who had been 11 over par In winning four earlier matches while Nancy, from Hoi. lywood, Fla., was two under, shot the 5,900.yard No. 2 course of the Plnehurst Country Club In 79. Does Your House NEED PAINT Then Call- NUZMAN LUMBER By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Kansas swept the four.mile relay at the Texas, Kansas and Drake Relays, Oklahoma State scored a triple crown in the two-mile relay but the Big Eight missed its chance for an unprecedented three teams with triple crowns when Nebraska had to withdraw from the 440 relay at Drake Saturday. Nebraska's Lynn Headley, Olympic sprinter who has done 9.4 in the 100, pulled a muscle Friday. The Huskers scratched and Texas A&M won it in 40.8. Nebraska won at Texas and Kansas with 40.5 each time. Charlie Greene of Nebraska won the 100-yard dash in 9.4 at BUOY — This bobbing three-cornered warning is frequently ignored, according to L. D. Flint, operator of the Lighthouse J3ay Marina at Lake Pomona. The unheeded sign is one element in a growing disagreement over water safety law enforcement at the lake (See story on Page 1). Celtics Win Title., Russell Injures Eye BOSTON (AP)—Bill Russeil, giant rallying figure of the ceaseless Celtics, called it "the most satisfying year of all." A few hours later, he was con. fined to bed, suffering from un. determined injuries to his right eye. Russell, who led Boston to am overpowering 129.96 triumph over Los Angeles Sunday for the Celtics' seventh straight Nation, al Basketball Association title, was ordered to bed Sunday night for treatment of injuries received when the Lakers' Jer. ry West accidentally poked him in the eye. Dr. Baruch Sachs, an eye spe. cialist, said the big center's con. dition was "a lot more serious than first thought" and 'has got to be treated very carefully." Dr. Sachs said internal hemor. rhaging had resulted. He or. dered Russell to bed for four or five days. Coach Wants To Fight By JOE MOOSHIL Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) — Bobby Hull hit a sinker, Montreal goalie Charlie Hodge missed it and that was the hockey game. The Chicago Black Hawk star took aim 26 seconds after the third period of a 1.1 hockey game began. He slapped a 55. footer that dipped under Hodge's glove to put the Hawks in front. The Hawks steamed three more goals past Hodge, two of them in the last 63 seconds of play, to beat the stunned Mon. treal Canadiens 5.1 and even the Stanley Cup best.of.7 series at two games each. Until the third period, the game was almost a replay of Thursday's bitter match In Chi. cago, won by the Hawks 3.1. But one difference was the number of penalties — 24 were whistled by referee Vern Buf. fey, 15 of them against the Canadiens. Buffey's whistle tooting left Montreal Coach Toe Blake livid with rage. Drake, beating Richard Steb- blns of Grambling, La., who has done 9.2. Oklahoma -State, led by John Perry's 1:49.8, won the two- mile in 7:24.2 in the soggy track. Kansas almost gave the Big Eight a fourth gold medal in the distance medley, but Herald Hadley's 4:10.Tj anchor mile wasn't enough to close a 30-yard gap. He was second to Notre Dame by 10 yards. The KU time was 0:53.2. K-State's Bill Floerke, Kansas Relays record holder in the javelin at ZGG-O'A, couldn't get his footing and clicjn't qualify. He had one throw about 220 feet but officials ruled it didn't break ground. Derby Experts Hold Judgment Neither Dr. Sachs nor the Cel. tics would say if there was dan. ger of Russell's eyesight being impaired. In the jubilant Celtics' dress, ing room after the game, Rus. sell said the team had dedicated the season to Walter Brown, late club owner and founder. "The season was something special because we broke the record with 62 victories. Then we proved we were worthy of it in tfce playoffs," Russell said. ' "Naturally the first champi. onship is still the biggest one for me," Coach Red Auerbach said. "But when we broke the record for victories this year I really wanted to win to prove we were the greatest team." For the second straight game and the llth of their last 22 playoff starts, the Celtics held a rival under 100 points. They held Dick Barnett scoreless aft. er he had averaged 17.5 in the first four games. Tiring West scored 33 but only 12 before in. termission. He averaged 40.6 for 11 playoff games. Boston ran off 20 straight points at the start of the final period for an insurmountable 107.71 bulge. The 20 Celtics' field goals in that quarter were a playoff championship record. Russell scored 22 points, grabbed 30 rebounds and had four assists before leaving to a thunderous ovation six minutes before the end. Sam Jones also had 22, K.C. Jones tied his per. sonal game high with 20, Johnny Havlicek added 18 and Tom Sanders 16. "I'll say it again. This is the greatest team I ever saw," said Los ^Angeles Coach Fred Schaus, whose team was elimi. nated in five games without All. Star forward Elgin Baylor, hob. bled by a knee ailment. "That Boston def en. sive press and then to find Rus. sell waiting for you under the basket — that's a helluva sight," added Schaus. LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Preparations for the 91st run. nlng of the Kentucky Derby moved into the nerve.wracking final stages today with most of the experts awaiting Bold Lad's showing in the Derby Trial be. fore selecting the probable winner of America's most color, ful horse race. The Trial will be run over one mile Tuesday at Churchill Downs, five days before 12 or more 3-year.olds take off in the 1'/4-mile $125,000-added Run for the Roses before a packed crowd of some 100,000. Post time Saturday is 4;45 p.m. EST, with nationwide television (CBS) scheduled for 4.5 p.m. Bold Lad, the strapping 2. year.old champion of 1964 from Mrs. H. C. Phipps' Wheatley Stable, finished third back of fronUrunning Flag Raiser and fast.closing Hail to All in the recent Wood Memorial at New York's Aqueduct. The son of Bold Ruler, whose 1965 campaign has been limited to two starts because of popped splints in his front legs, will be piloted for the first Ume. by Bill Hartack.' He has ridden in six Derbies and won four, th'e last with Northern Dancer in 1964.

"My opinion of Saturday's field is that it is a good average group of 3-year.olds without a definite standout and that goes for Bold Lad, Hail to All, Flag Raiser and Native Charger. "But if you would ask me as to my choice it would be Tom Rolie. I liked the way he ran in winning last Saturday's Step, ping Stone." Tom Rolfe, who'll be ridden by Canada's Ron Turcotte, will carry the colors of Raymond Guest, U.S. ambassador to Ire. land and a high-ranking polo player. He won Laurel's Chesapeake Stakes before taking the seven furlongs of the Stepping Stone with Native Charger, Flamingo and Florida Derby winner, ! 3 /4 lengths back in second. Entries for the Derby are scheduled to be made Thursday morning with the payment of S500. It'll cost another $1,000 to get a horse into the post parade. As of, today,.the starters in. elude Dapper Dan, Dapper Del. egate, Swift Ruler, Narushua, Mr. Pak, Carpenter's Rule, Lucky Debonair and Apple Core in addition to Bold Lad, Flag Raiser, Tom Rolfe, Native Charger and Hail to All. Kansas, the all-time leader in gold medals on the Midwest relay circuit, picked up No. 202, 141 of them under Bill Easton, with a victory in the four-mile in 16:40.0 Friday, best in conference history. Oklahoma's 3:17.8 sprint medley was best in league history, but OU was third. The Big Eight won 11 gold medals in 21 races on the circuit this year, with six runner. up finishes and eight in third place. This was a little under last year's 13-for-21, but Mis. souri this year sent its best rp. lay men to the Perm Relays. Robin Lingle's 4:10 anchored the Timers to an easy victory in the distance medley, but Villanova beat them in the two. mile. Missouri placed at two events at Drake, with Gene Crews second in the shot put at 57-6V: and Steve Herndon third at 6-7',^ in the high jump. Kansas was runner-up in two events, with Glenn Martin's 48-7',-j in the triple jump and Tom Purma's 209-foot javelin throw. OSU was fourth, K-State fifth in the distance medley; Iowa State fourth in the two-mile; Oklahoma fourth and Kansas fifth in the 880 relay; and Nebraska fourth, Kansas fifth in the mile relay. Kansas and Missouri colleges finished with one gold medal, three seconds, three thirds, one fourth and two fifths at the Drake Relays. Kirksville State won the two- mile relay in 7:37.5, beating Lincoln of Jefferson City by two-tenths second when Ed Schneider stormed from behind in the last 30 yards. Kirksville also was second in the sprint medley, third in the 880 relay when Lincoln was disqualified, and third in the distance med. ley. Fort Hays was fourth and Emporia State fifth in the distance medley. Lincoln took fifth in the 440 relay. In the individual events, Lin. coin's Albert Wheatfall was sec. one in 9.6 in the special 100 yard sash and Kirksville's Jer. ry Krumeich was third in 21.2 in the special 220.
