EIGHT IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN MONDAY, MAY 17,1965. Calumet, Bessemer, Wakefield, Baraga Win Track Titles Cardinals, Speed Boys Share Title In Class C Meet CLASS "C" TOTALS Pts. Wakefield 43 j Bessemer 431 Ontonagon 41 j Crystal Falls 38 BESSEMER — Wakef i e 1 d's Cardinals, defending Region a 1 Class "C" track champ ions, and the Bessemer Speed Boys, battled to a 43-all tie in the annual meet held at Bessemer's Massie Field on Saturday. The meet was the most closely sontested in the history of the event, despite being staged in a steady downpour during the morning and a light drizzle at times during the afternoon finals. Ontonagon's Polar Bears finished a close third in the meet with 41 points and Crystal Falls placed fourth with 38 points, just five points out of first place. The closeness of the meet can be gleaned from the fact that Wakefield, Bessemer, and Ontonagon each captured four first place medals, while Cry s t a 1 Falls netted three. Saturday's Class "C" meet was not decided until the final two events. Bessemer's Sp e e d Boys held a 40 to 35 edge over Wakefield with the broad jump and high jump not repor ted. The Cards placed first and second in the broad jump to move into first place, while Bessemer placed third to trail the Cards 43-42. The Speed Boys garnered one point in the high jump to gain a tie for the championship. The deadlock between the Speed Boys and Cardin a 1 s marks the first time in the history of the meet that two teams have tied for the title. .Bessemer gains is first regional title since 1951, while Wakefi e 1 d has won the title every year since 1951, with the exception of £963., when Ontonagon copped the' championship. Three new records were, established and another standard was equalled. Wakefield's three event winner for the afternoon, Ray Sibley, smashed the regional, Range and Bessemer track records in the 220-yard dash, speeding through that event in the time of 23.2 seconds. Sibley's new mark betters the rec o r d of 23.6 set by Gordon Holemo, Ironwood, in 1949. Holemo's record stood as the Range and Bessemer track record while Gregg Miheve, Wakefield, held the Class "C" Regional 220-yard dash record of 23.65, set in 1959. In addition to shattering all area 220-yard records, Sib 1 e y equalled the Regional Class '" broad. Jump record of 20 feet, 4 Inches, set by Paul Gottwald, Wakefield, in 1950. Sibley also finished first in the 100-y a r d dash in the fine time of 10.5 seconds. Ladd Honkala, Bessemer, quarter-mile performer, set a new regional mark in this event with the fine time of 53.9 seconds. The previous mark in the 440-yard dash was set a year ago by Tom Makinen, Bessemer. Honkala also anch o r e d Bessemer's winning 880-yard relay team and placed third in the broad jump. Other members of the winning Speed Boys' half • mile relay team are: Mitch LeClair, Mark Martini, and Tom Marzari. The Bessemer quartet ran the event in the fine time of 1:39.1, nipping a contesting Wakefi eld foursome. Mark Martini gave the Speed Boys a first place medal in the 180-yard low hurdles in the time of 23.5 and Bob Abelmam, sped across the finish line first in the first section of the 880-yard run to the time of 2:14. Wakefield's fourth event winner was sophomore She 1 d o n Jakkola, who won the pole vault, with the winning valut of 10 feet, 2 inches. The Cards' Rog er Koski, who has cleared 11 feet, 11 inches, this year, re- injured his leg and placed fourth. Grabbing first place medals for the Ontonagon Polar Bears were Dave Hegg, in the 880-yard run, first section, in the outstanding time of 2:10.9; while Don Busslere captured the shot put event, with a toss of 42 feet, Wz inches. The Polar Bears' Bill Marks placed first In the high jump with a winning leap of 5 feet, 6V& inches. Ontonagon's one mile re 1 a y team copped the final track event of the day, stepping off trie track with a winning time of 3:50. Members of the Bears' quartet are: Ray Anderson, Ron Sarbo, Dave Hegg and Howard Hegg. Crystal Falls, making its strongest showing in the regional meet in history, captu red three first places, while flnsining a close fourth in the meet Larry Tregear placed first in the second section of the 440 yard dash with the winning time of 65.8. . \ The Falls' Roger Johnson captured the one mile run with • time of 5:03.6, while Bob Aho]» »ptd through the Ugh hurdles RECORD BREAKING RUN—Wakefield's Ray Sibley, a sophomore, breaks the tape after setting a new Class C regional record in the 220-yard dash at the Class C Regional Track and Field Meet staged at Bessemer Saturday. Sibley's time in the race was 23.2 seconds erasing the old record set by Greg Miheve, also of Wakefield, in the 1959 meet of 23.65. (Daily Globe Photo) New Manager Gets Off to Good Start as A's Beat Twins Twice By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer If Haywood Sullivan can win a few more games, he might find first in the time of 18.15. Bessemer nearly won the meet in the broad jump, where Honkala was second and Sibley was holding down first place. However, the Cards' Nick Jarvela surpassed the leap of Honkala on his final effort of the meet to give the Cards' eight points and bring the Cards' total to 43. Wakefield's hopes of winni n g the meet were seriously h a m- pered when Jim Smith, Cardinal high hurdler, who came into the meet with the best qualifying time, became confus e d at the start of his preliminary heat when the starter began the race. Smith failed to run when he saw several spectators on the track and believed the starter would call the runn e r s back, but the event was completed and he was automatically disqualified. The meet was the closest in history. The first four place winners in each event qualified for the Upper Peninsula Class "C" finals slated for Houghton next Saturday. In addition, the first two relay teams also qualifi e d for the peninsula finale. Shot put— Distance, 42 feet, 8'/4 inches. 1. Bussiere (O); 2. Waldo (CF); 3. Domitrovich (O); Davis (CF).

The new manager of the Kan- sus City Athletics took a giant step toward taking over Charley the Mule's trailer as well as the animal's place in Charley Finley's heart by halting a seven- game losing streak Sunday with a doubleheader sweep over Minnesota 7-4 in 10 innings and 4-2. Sullivan, a former catcher with Boston and Kansas City who had been managing at Vancouver, got the call from owner Finley during the weekend and replaced Mai McGaha. He became Finley's fifth manager in five years and the youngest in the majors at 34. He went to work immediately and found a willing ally in Rene Lachemann, a former Dodger bat boy. Lachemann was sent lip as a pinch hitter in the opener and produced the tying run with a ninth-inning single, then was inserted into the line-up in the nightcap and responded with two singles and a homer. A couple of more moves like that and the Mule may get his eviction papers. Meanwhile, the American League-leading Chicago White Sox swept a doubleheader from the Los Angeles Angels 6-2 and 5-4, Boston downed Dwtroit 5-0 and 4-3, Washington edged Cleveland 8-7 in 11 innings before the Indians won 7-3 and Baltimore defeated the New York Yankees 7-5 in the only single game scheduled. After Lachemann drove in the tying run in the opener for the A's, Ed Charles won it in the 10th with a three-run homer following singles by John Blanchard and Dick Green. Green hit two homers and Gentile one for Kansas City while Jimmie Hall and Tony Oliva connected for the Twins. Pete Ward and Moose Skowron supplied the major fireworks for the White Sox in the opener, Ward doubling home two runs in the first inning and Skowron slapping a two-run single in the third before hitting a homer in the seventh. In the nightcap, Bobby Knoop's second error, in the seventh inning, paved the way for three unearned runs and the White Sox' seventh consecutive victory. Danny Cater scored when second - baseman Knoop bobbled Skowron's grounder and Ron Hansen capped the uprising with a two-run triple. Earl Wilson got the job done for the Red Sox in the opener by limiting the Tigers to four hits while Lee Thomas drove in three runs with a single and a double. Carl Yastrzemskl and Tony Conigliaro powered the Red Sox to their second - game victory with consecutive third - Inning homers that built their lead to 0. It was Yastrezemski's seventh and Conigliaro's eighth. Ken McMullen doubled and scored on Jim King's single to give the Senators a 7-7 tie in the ninth inning, then won it in the llth with a homer off Dick Donovan. The Indians came back to grab the second game with Fred Whitfield hitting a pinch-hit grand-slam homer and Joe Azcue connecting for a two-run shot. Luis Tiant got the victory with a six-hitter. Luis Aparicio's two-run homer in the sixth inning capped a four-homer salvo that powered the Orioles over the Yankees. Aparicio's homer, only his second, put Baltimore ahead 6-5. Curt Blefary, Norm Siebern and pitcher Jim Palmer also hom- ered. Johnson); 3. Bessemer (Re, Mattson, Abelman, Mar c a k); 4. Wakefield (Forney, Kanto, .Valesano, Franck). Copper Kings Top Class B; Ironwood 3rd CLASS B TEAM TOTALS Pts. Calumet 52 Iron River 51 Ironwood 39 BESSEMER— The Calum e t Copper Kings pulled a complete reversal of their last year's third-place finish and copped top honors in the 1965 Class B Upper Peninsula Regional Track and Field Meet held at Massie Field at Bessemer Saturday. Ironwood, the meet's defending champion, fell into third place while Iron River captured second place. Calumet took the meet trophy with 52 points, barely edging the Redskins of Iron River, who to- talled 51 points, with both teams far outpoint ing the Ironwood Red Devils, who tallied 39 points. Last year Ironwood edged Ishpeming, which did not take part in Saturday's meet, by a 47-45 margin, with Calumet winding up in third place with 44 points and Negaunee and H a n- cock far behind with 18 and 11 points, respectively. * * * Any chances of record breaking performances Saturday were dampened by a r a i n-s o a k ed track and many of the events took place in a steady d o w n- pour. Three Ironwood thinclads captured individual first places in their events with Frank Verbos heaving the shot a distance of 45 feet 4'/2 inches; Joe Kravetz, winning the 880-yard run with a time of 2:09.6 and Don Hoist easily winning the Class B braod jump competition, with a jump of 20 feet 6 inches. For Verbos it was a repeat performance as he also won last year's shot put event with a toss of 45-8'/4. C a 1 u m e t's vict o r y w as sparked by an outstanding performance of William Mugford who won the 180-yard low hurdles with a time of 22.4 sec- yard dash with a time of 11.0 seconds. To add to the Cop p er Kings' point total, Mugford cap- t u r e d thirti place in the broad jump and was a member of the four-man 880-yard relay team that captured first place for Calumet with a time of 1:38. The first four finishers in each individual event and the first two teams in each relay race qualified to compete in the Upper Peninsula championship meet to be held Saturday at Houghton.

(C); (C); Title Is Kept By Hernandez MARACAIBO, Venezuela (AP) — Carlos Hernandez, the world junior welterweight champion, stopped Colombian challenger Mario Rossito after four rounds in their championship bout Sunday night. Hernandez, who weighed 134'/a to Rossito's 137'/2, scored heavily to the challenger's head and cut his left eyebrow in the fourth round. Rossito's seconds worked feverishly over him between rounds but the Colombian was unable to answer the bell for the fifth. The Venezuelan champ won his 36th fight in 39 starts. For Rossito, it was his seventh loss in 54 fights. Utt DAILY OLOB1 WAKT-ADS STRONG FINISH—Ladd Honkala of the Bessemer Speed Boys seems to be racing all by himself as he puts on a spurt of speed to capture the blue ribbon in the grueling 440-yard dash in the Class C Regional Track and Field Meet held Saturday at Bessemer. Honkala's performance set a new regional record in the race as he scampered the quarter mile in a time of 53.9 seconds, bettering the old mark of 54.25 set by Tom Makinen of Bessemer in last year's meet at Kingsford. (Daily Globe Photo) Tigers Return Home With New Image, Confidence Restored DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Tigers were back home today with a brand new image and a restoration of confidence. Almost certainly the "gate" at Briggs Stadium is going to improve, too. All this comes about from the successful road trip, just concluded, with homer-hitting Willie Horton taking the main bows. The Tigers' 7-4 road trip, which included a victory string of six straight games behind Horton's tremendous walloping, ended with a doubleheader loss to the Boston Red Sox in Boston Sunday. But the two defeats didn't hurt too much. Horton wasn't stopped, just slowed a little. He hit three doubles in eight times up. He leads the American League in homers with his total of nine. His batting average is a fat .403. The Red Sox beat Dave Wickersham 5-0 in Sunday's opener behind Earl Wilson's four-hit job and took the nightcap 4-3 on Carl Yastrzemski's slugging. Interim manager Bob Swift and the Tigers, who left town two weeks ago in mild disgrace, came back fully redeemed and will open a three-game series Tuesday night with the Washington Senators. Today was an open date. Hank Aguirre will be after his fifth straight victory in the opener with Washington. He has yet to lose. Denny McLain (0-2) and Mickey Lolich (5-2) are tagged for the second and third games. Yastrzemski, who had hooked up in a notable slugging duel with Horton earlier, hit a two- run homer and drove in a third run for Bill Monbouquette's second game victory Sunday. Detroit used four pitchers. The Red Sox slugger was hurt in both games and had to leave play each time. He was injured in a collision while base-running in the second contest and suffered a back bruise. Wilson held Detroit safe in the opener, striking out eight batters and walking only one. The defeat was Wickersham's second against one victory. Both he and Monbouquette worked hard to control Horton. Neither was fully "successful. Willie got one double in the first game and two in the second. Fielding played a vital role in both games. Horton figured in a great deal of this. He was on third with one out in the seventh inning of the first game from his double and a single by Jim Northrup. Wilson looked shaky as rally threatened. Bill Freehan popped out and Sox third baseman Dal ton Jones risked broken bones with a tumbling catch of pinch- hitter Gates Brown's foul in the Tiger dugout, retiring the side. Willie himself tried and failed on an attempted diving catch of a fly to left that gave the sox an opening in the early innings of the first game. The Tigers' new star was prominent otherwise. Pitches by Wilson brushed both Kaline and Horton back from the plate in the fourth. After Willie's turn, he started toward the pitching mound and Wilson stepped toward him. Players and plate umpire Bill Kinnamon intervened, preserving peace. First Game Detroit 000 000 000—0 4 1 Boston 102 000 20x—5 8 0 Wickersham, Gladding (8) and Freehan; W—Wilson, 3-2.

St. Ambrose Cops Second Place in Class D Event CLASS D TEAM TOTALS Pts. Baraga 47V6 St. Ambrose 41 Jeffers 36 Ewen . .. 271/3 White Pine 7 Bergland 3'/s Doelle 3 HOUGHTON - Baraga and St. Ambrose battled it out for the top spot in the Class D Upper Peninsula Regional Track and Field Meet Saturday at Houghton, with Baraga winding up with the meet trophy by totalling 47 and one-third points to the Ramblers' 41, followed by Painesdale with 36, Ewen 27 and one-third, White Pine 7, Bergland 3 and one-third and Doelle 3. The entire meet was held under a threat of rain and despite some showers one new record was posted as P. LeClaire of Baraga pole vaulted to a height of 11 feet. The old Class D record stood at 10-10 and was set by S. Putula of Baraga in last year's competition. St. Ambrose captured three first places with some outstanding performances such as the first place finish in the rn i 1 e run by John Stano, who had been on the injured list for Coach Pete Schmidt's Ramblers since the first meet of the season but came back to take the regional mile crown with a time of 4:52.3. Dennis Cossi of St. Ambrose won the 180-yard low nurd 1 e s finals in a time of 23.0 seconds to add to the Ramblers' list of first place winners and St. Ambrose also captured first place honors in 880-yard relay, pacing the field and winning with a time of 1:43.3. Members of the winning relay squad were Innocenzo, Appleberry, Harm and Richards. Ewen dominated the two 880- yard races with J. Koski winning the second section with the fastest time of 2:16.8 and R. Franti winning the first section with a time of 2:17.5. Baragao got off to a flying start in the meet by winning three of the four first places in the field events and totaling 24 points while the Rambl e r s could manage only one point as Dave Duma c'aptured fourth place in the broad jump. The four finishers in each individual event and the first two teams in each relay race qualified to compete in the Upper Peninsula charnpionsh i p meet to be held at Houghton on Saturday.

"Alt t said Show me a filter that delivers the taste and I'll eat my hat/' i Try Lucky Strike * "5 - - _^u I $'••". . In , «.*.«•. iflT afiiihM t/lmm tfpifJ Youth Runs Mile Under 4 Minutes WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Olympian Jim Ryun of Wichita East High School attributes his amazing 3:58.3 mile — first sub four-minute mile ever run in high school competition — to his extra work in the sprints. "In any race a mile or less it's a matter of speed," said the 18-year-old, dark-haired lad. "I didn't start bringing my mile times down until I started working harder on the sprints. "This time, I knew it was my last high school race and I wanted to make it good." That amounts to a major speech for the modest Ryun. He is looking forward to four big West Coast meets, starting with the Modesto, Calif., Relays May 28. But he won't speculate on his chances against great veteran milers such as Dyrol Burleson, Jim Grelle, Tom O'Hara and Peter Snell of New Zealand, the word record holder at 3:54.1. Ryun's 3:58.3 at the Kansas State meet Saturday is a tremendous accomplishment because he did it with no one pressing him the last half mile. His coach, J. D. Edmiston, timed his last quarter in 55.7 seconds. The crowd of 7,000 urged him on all the way. Ryun's time is better than the NCAA meet record of 3:59.8 by Burleson and compares to the American record of 3:55.5 by Jim Beatty, and the collegiate mark of 3:58.9 by O'Hara. During his baseball career, Babe Ruth earned $1,091,477.
