Beukema sets record in CBL track finals Redlands high distance man Nolan Beukema turned on a strong kick in the final 220 yards to overtake Dan Hirsch of Ramona for a win in the 2- mile race last night in the Citrus belt League track and field finals at Riverside Poly high. Beukema and quarter miler Rick Pohdore were the only two Terriers in the varsity division to make the top three and the trip to the CIF prelims next Saturday at Chaffey high. The Terrier Uvo-miler clipped the distance in 9:42.3 to set a league record for the event. His previous best time was 9:57. Polidore was third in the 440. Andy Soulek finished second in the Class B 660 when Riverside Poly's Monte Feli.x unleashed a tremendous kick in the last 100 yards to win. Felix was timed in 1:21.6 and Soulek 1:22.7. The mark was a new record, the old standard ^ being 1:23 flat. Sieve Shawven won the 1320 in 3:17.0 to move into the CIF meet. Also in the B class, sprinter Steve Peterson qualified in the 220 with a 22.3 clocking, one- tenth of a second behind the wiimer. Mike Weaver, favored to set a new standard in the Class C 120 yard low hurdles came up with a pulled hamstring muscle and had to scratch. Weaver pulled the muscle in the 110-yard dash where he placed second. Sprinter Bill Henry zipped to a second place fm- ish in the 180 yard dash. In the varsity division, Steve Wilke and Bob Manning were fifth and sixth in the 220 dash. Dave Wheeler tied for third in the high jump but ost out on a jumpoff between the group.

Field events wUl begin with the pole vault at 7 p.m. and prelimmary running events will also start at the same time. Finals in the races wiH be held at 8 p.m. Outstanding track and field men from 12 colleges will converge on the stadium. The battle for the team championship looks to be a battle between Cal Western, Westmont and the host Bulldogs. Bulldog shotputter Lee Johnson, injured earUer this week, won his event at the Fresno Relays last niglit. Johnson is expected to have quite a duel with Dave Price of Cal Western to­ nigiit. Price has pumped the iron ball out 60 feet 7 inches while Jolinson has a best of 61 feet. For the track and field en- thuisast, this will be one of the best meets in the area this year, assistant UR coach Jack Savage stated. A fine field of 880 nmners and other distance men will be on tap for the trackfest. Lee Jotinson FRESNO — University of Redlands shotputter Lee Johnson broke the collegiate division meet record in the West Coast Relays last night with a 58 feet 2 inch effort. He held the old record of 55-10 which he set last year. .lohnson will be in action tonight on the UR oval in the District III NAIA track and field meet starting at 7 p.m. It was a double for Johnson as he came back later to win the discus when he tossed the platter out 154 feet 9 inches. The Redlands relay team clipped off the mile in 3:13.1 to win. Runnmg on the quartet were Gary Krueger, Bill Bryden. Rich !\IcDowell and Elhott Mason. Mason, Brydcn, Krueger and Jim Tomlin came back in the 880 where they finished second to San Diego State Redlands turned the distance in 1:26.9 to the winners 1:26.6. San Diego Stale compiled 3S points to win the team title while Fresno State had 32, Redlands 28, Long Beach 24 and Los Angeles State was fifth with 21. Coach Ted Runner's Bulldogs were defending champions of the meet but lacked the manpower needed to annex the crown again.

LOS ANGELES (UPI) — The reign of Vicente Saidivar as world featherweight champion could be a long one if his first title defense against Raul Rojas is indicative of his domination of the 126-pound division. And the Mexican titleholder demonstrated his desire to keep his crown by announcing he was going to Uie gym today, less than 24 hours after his 15th round knockout, to resume for his next defense. Rojas was denied the honor of going 15 rounds with th'j champion in their outdoor bout at Memorial Coliseum when referee Tommy Hart stopped tlie fight with 10 seconds to go. Veteran observers recalled a similar situation when Max Schmeling defended the heavyweight title against William (Young) Striblmg July 3, 1931.! at Cleveland. Referee George Blake stopped that fight with less than 15 seconds left, awarding the German a technical knockout. •'I'm a referee, not a timekeeper," Hart snapped: Repeating virtually the same words Blake used when asked why ho stopped the 1931 title bout. Friday night's fight program showed a good lefthander OWTIS a decisive advantage. In addition to Saidivar capitalizing on his southpaw style, Hiroyuki Ebihara of Japan who also works from the portside knocked out Alacran Torres of Mexico in the seventh round of a scheduled 12-round flyweight elimination bout. The first title bout in Los Angeles in two years drew a crowd of 15,200 to the huge Coliseum, with a paid gate of S112.- 400. There was no local television coverage. Saidivar, 124%, put up his title for the first time since winning it from Sugar Ramos at Mexico City last Sept. 26 on a 12th round knockout. Point Margins The champion piled up a big point margm in the first half of the fight. Rojas, weighing 125'/i., flurried in the seventh round when he had a slight edge, suffered a cut over his left eye in the eighth, and then took the ninth when he opened a cut on the champion's riglit cheekbone. But whatever chances Rojas h-:i disappeared as Saidivar battered liim around the ring in the 11th round with a salvo of stinging lefts to the head. And the tiring Rojas was virtually helpless in the 15th when the bout was stopped. Ebihara shot to a quick advantage in the first round of his bout when he dropped Torres with a left to the jaw. Torres had the advantage only in one round, the fifUi, when he was able to pin the Japanese in a corner and got inside Ms guard. But in the seventh, Ebihara knocked the Mexican through the ropes. He managed to stagger back into the ring and on his feet by the count of five. But then EbUiara reigned blows that left Torres helpless and referee (k)erge Latka stopped the bout at 2:31 of the seventh. Four errors cost T-Blrds Indio game INIDIO — Errors, four of them, spelled defeat for coach Don Gifford's Yucaipa High Thunderbird baseball team yesterday as Indio managed a 4-2 win in Desert Valley League play. Both the Thunderbirds and Indio collected seven hits. Terrj' Rainbow was the losing pitcher after staying ahead 2-0 until the fourth inning. Chuck Shewmaker was the leading batter for the T-Eirds coming up with two singles in three trips to the plate. Yucaipa AB R. H.

NEW POINT OF VIEW Redlands Daily Facts Saturday, May 8, 1965 - Drop second game 6-3 Talbof snaps Angels LOS .ANGELES (UPI)-If, only the Los Angeles Angels | could figure out a way to beat Kansas City's Fred Talbot, Uiey might never lose a game to the cellar-dwelling A's. The Angels are tie:! with Minnesota for second place in the American League today. But tliey had a chance to be there all alone until Talbot snapped tlieir five-game winning streak by pitcliing and batting Kansas City to a 6-3 win in the second game of Friday night's doubleheader. Home runs by WilUe Smith | and Jim Fregosi and tight relief pitchmg by Bob Lee gave Los Angeles the first game, 5-4.! Dean Chance, who went 6 2-3 1 iimings, got his tliird win. It was Talbot la.st Sunday who stopped Los Angeles, 9-5, after the Angels had won the first three games of a series in Kansas City. They had captured tlie first two of tlie current five-game set until he dropped them again last night. Tonight Angel manager Bill Rigney will send rookie left­ hander Marcclino Lopez (3-2) against Diego Segui (2-2). Talbot needed ninth inning reUef help from John Wyatt. who retired Jose Cardenal on a fly ball with two out and two on. Rookie Paul Schaal had started the late rally with his sixth homer of the season after two were out. On top of his pitching, Talbot fourth inning to wipe out an socked a three-nm triple in Uie eai-Iy 2-1 Angel lead. Jim Gentile helped him out with a pair of bases empty homers, his fiftli and sixth. Ron Piche, who started and lasted just four innings for the Angels, was tagged with the loss. Willie Smith tripled in the first ."^ngel run in the first inning, scored the second on a error and drove in three runs in the opener. Two of them came on his second homer of the year. That was off relief pitcher Jim Dickson in the fifth inning and gave Los Angeles a 5-2 lead. Put the A's chased Chance in the seventh when Dick Green homered and Campy Campa- neris doubM. Reliever George Brunei was promptly tagged for two singles and another run, but Bob Lee came on to shut the door. Lee lowered his earned run average to 1.35. Moe Drabowski (0-3) took llie loss.

Giants place Cepeda on over lead today FORTH WORTH (UPI) Champagne Tony Lema, the writers' choice for the S20,000 plum that goes to the Colonial National Invitation champion, may yet make sages of them if he can get another hot birdie streak going in today's third round. Lema, who hasn't been playing at all well since February wasn't in the lead spot when play started today, but he was among a quartet of veterans putting the head on co-leaders George Knudson and Bruce Crampton, who threaten to make this a British Commonwealth triumph. Knudson, the Canadian first- round leader who faded to a 3437—71 Friday, and Crampton, the stocky AustraUan, who shot a 33-35—68, shared the lead with onc-under-par I39s. Lema, who tied a string of three straight birides together starting with the 14th hole, said he "played very well Thursday and Friday — when you play hke this, you feel anything can happen." Lema shared the strategic runner-up position with a threesome made up of five-times champion Ben Hogan — playing excellent golf despite his 52 years, two times winner Julius Boros, and Gene Littler, who hasn't manufactured a victory in nearly three years. Crampton caught the faltering Knudson with three birdie putts of 8, 10 and 25 feet to offset a bogey brought on by a drive into the rought and a recovery into a trap at No. 17. Knudson had hopes of lengthening his lead when he dropped a 20-foot birdie putt at No. 6 to go three under for the tourney. But, fate caught up with him on the back side and he missed par putts of two feet and eight feet to get a pair of costly bogeys. Lema three-putted for a pair of bogeys on the front side, but on 14 he canned a 12-footer, at 15 a 15-footer and at 16 a 17- footer. He was terribly disappointed at 17 when a five-footer failed to drop and said he just missed a 20-footer at the final green. The top half dozen were not safe, however, with the field closely bunched behind them. Bo Wininger, Jay Hebert and Gardner Dickinson were at 141; Dave Marr, Bert Weaver, Doug Sanders, Jerry Edwards and Miller Barber at 142; and Frank Beard, Juan Rodriguez, Bob Goalby, Sara Snead, Bert Yancey, defending champion Billy Casper and Al Besselink at 143. Dodgers down Giants in 4-3 chiller SAN FRANCISCO (UFI) — You can forget that much-publicized clash that was slated to go on today between fireballers Don Drysdale of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Juan Marichal of the San Francisco Giants. After earlier rumblings thi'; week about how Marichal would "retaliate" against Drysdale if the latter ever threw close to Willie Mays again, it will be Ron Herbel (1-1) starting today against the mighty Drysdale (3-2). Manager Herman Franks of the Giants said Friday night that Marichal injured a groin muscle pitching in St. Louis and could use one more day of rest. So now Sunday's battle will feature Don Juan against 'he gifted Sandy Koufax. But umpire Bill JackowsUi still brought Franks and Dodger manager Walt Alston together at home plate Friday night and told them that any intentional close pitches would draw the ire of the league office. Just the Facts "We just explained the facts to them quietly," Jackowski said afterward. The Dodgers, now leading the National League by 2\2 games, won their fourth straight Friday night by downing the Giants, 4-3. A chilled crowd of 33,977 Candlestick Park captives watched Dick Tracewski break a 3-3 tie in the eighth inning with a single off relief pitcher Bill Henry. The line hig brought across pinch-runner Willie Crawford, who had taken over for John Roseboro after the latter greeted Henry with a single. Two Homers Claude Osteon, although banged for a pair of 400-foot homers by Mays, stuck around all night to pitch a six hitter and earn his third win of the season against two defeats. It marked the first loss of the season for Henry, a veteran left-handed reliever whom the Giants acquired from Cincinnati last Tuesday in exchange for the seldom-used Jim Duffalo. "This has to be my worst performance of the year," the straight-shooting Osteen said afterward. "I've done a lot better in the five other ones." Osteen, who first faced Candlestick's glacier breeze when he hurled here for Cincinnati five years ago, noted that the wind still is bad. "In a park like this, you have to go with the circumstances," he said. "From the fourth or fifth inning on, I pitched on the inside corner in order to adjust with the wind which would make the ball tail off." Osteen said that Mays's first home run came on a good low curve. "The second pitch he hit had nothing on it," Osteen said, "but that's what makes Willie a great hitter. He can belt the good one and bad one." Mays Gets Two Mays, who now has hit 10 home runs this year on 22 games, gave the Giants a 2-0 lead with bases empty shots in the second and fourth innings. They weren't enough. The Dodgers got to Jack Sanford ifor four singles and three runs jin the fifth inning to go ahead, 3-2. Then pinch-hitter Cap Peterson lifted the Giants back into a tie with a single off Osteen ;to score Jim Davenport in the seventh. Davenport, having a fine sprmg at shortstop after taking over for the slump-ridden Jose Pagan, had led off by doubling for his second hit of the night. Henry, the third Giant hurler to work, came in to start the eighth after Bob Bolin had gone out for a pinch-hitter. Highland Park Methodist Church in Dallas.
