Eighteen Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Thursday Evening, May 17, 1962 Golfers Lose Twice; Host Sectional Friday THE LOGANSPORT High School golf team is hoping it got the kinks out of its system Wednesday afternoon and ,-when hosting Friday LHSAA golf sectional Friday at Dykeman Park the scores will be somewhat better. The Berries ended on the short end of the stick in' a triangular golf meet Wednesday with Peru and Lebanon. Peru whipped Logan, 14-1, and Lebanon, 10-5 and Lebanon topped the locals, 8V&- 6'/ 2 . Logansport's scores Wednesday ranged from John Moss' 79 to a 88 carded by Dave George. THE BERRIES' No. 1 man, Dick Gray, started well enough and was one-over-par after six holes but then lost everything and went seven over par on the next three holes, .ending with' a 44 for the first nine. Peru didn't exactly tear Dykeman' Park apart, but did have all its players scoring 80 or better with the lowest 77. The sectional meet. will be on a medal play basis and looking at this system Peru ended its five man total with 392. Lebanon was 403 and Logan 413. In the sectional only four men will compete with each team. LEBANON'S 0. A. Kincaid will be one of the favorites in the sectional but had trouble with Dykeman in the triangular and carded a 78. Medalist honors, were picked off By Peru's Gerald Spranger and John Gilbrist who both' 'carded 77s. The ^tournament directors for the sectional will be Harold Jamison, Logansport golf coach, John Carithers, Dykeman Park. pro, and 'Harold' Mertz, Logansport High School principal.

It's no criticism of Willie the Wonder — at 31 the most exciting player in the majors — just the ultimate tribute to the prow• ess of the game - winning bat swung by the 24-year-old, 210- pound Cepeda. _ This is Cepeda's fifth season in the big, time — and it looks like it'll' be by all odds his best. He's batting at a .336 clip, has hit 10 homers and leads the NL with 38 runs batted in. At that pace he'll • surpass his 1961 figures of .311, 46 and 142 in those departments by a wide margin. Cepeda supplied the crushing Wow for the Giants again Wednesday when his three - run homer climaxed a five-run sev- . enth-inning rally as San Francis. c 0 whipped the St. Louis Cardinals, 7-2. The win extended the Giants' latest winning surge to . four straight games during which they have outscored their rivals, . 31-7. Marichal Wins Seventh Juan Marichal yielded nine hits and five walks but was helped by three double plays in, winning his seventh game for the Giants. . One of the hits off lum was a single by Stan Musial that tied the Cardinal all-time great with Hans Wagner's NL record of 3,430 lifetime hits. • The Los Angeles Dodgers remained four games behind the Giants with a 5-2 victory over the Houston Colts; the Cincinnati Reds downed the Philadelphia Phillies, 6-5; the New York Mets edged the Chicago Cubs, 6-5, in . 11 innings, and the Pittsburgh Pirates shut out the Milwaukee • Braves, 6-0, in other NL games. In the American League, the ' Cleveland Indians retained first place by defeating the Kansas • City A's, 10-9; the New York Yankees outslugged the Boston Red Sox, 9-8; the Minnesota •' Twins topped the Detroit Tigers, ' 84; the Los Angeles Angels beat the Baltimore Orioles, 3-1, an d the Washington Senators shaded the Chicago White Sox, 3-1.

A veteran of 15 years of world Grand Prix road racing, the 49> ear-old chauffeur indicated time was against his bid to add international flavor to the holiday chase. , . He passed his rookie driver's test only three days ago, leaving little time to practice, at high speeds for this weekend's final ime trials. "We're getting there slow but sure," he said, "but I'm not at alt- confident we'll be fast enough. We continue to make all sorts of adjustments on the car to get it to go-faster, but we have an on- •vious lack of practice time." Fairman arrived 10 days ahead of the car and he spent the idle time watching other drivers work the bugs out of their machines. When his new eight-cylinder, rear- engine creation finally arrived, showers cut into precious practice time. • . • , . , Despite scorching heat, Wednesday was,4he : .first time. Fairman could run consistently at speeds higher than those required in the rookie tests. He put together 18 laps' of'speeds -at 140-141 mph and said the'car, ''felt good." "But we 'have to find 4-5 miles before we can qualify," he said, and that isii't easy if or a pilot used to driving the road racing circuit. ' "It takes some time to gel; used to this track," Fairman' said. Still, he admired the Speedway operation. "The cars are beautifully made and this is -a fabulous setup," he said. "Everybody has been very charming and going out of their|.-pp., , p •.• ry wav to be helpful, but I doubt-if I UUMNtI into a Grand Prix racer." Fairman said his chances of making the 33-car field might have been much better had his car arrived 10-days earlier. "Those 10 days may cost us getting into the race," he added. HOT SPRINGS way to be helpful, but this 1 type racing does anything-to improve passenger cars—except may for tires. "Here you have four lefthand turns at high-speed, while in road racing you slow down to 30 miles per hour. The. average expert is so accustomed to dashing around this track in high, gear, he never uses the clutch or the gearbox and hardly any brakes. -There is no question about it, I prefer road racing." ' Fairman, the oldest driver bidding .for the Speedway's rich payoff expected to hit $425,000, was invited by wealthy Chicago sportsman Jim Kimberley to drive a car built recently by speedster Mickey Thompson. "I didn't know the' track, and nobody knew anything about the car when it got here,", he said, "KO it was a bit of a gamble.

Competition becomes tougher in Round 2 of the Indiana high school track and field championship, but several all-time regional records are in jeopardy.. That goes particularly for ':he three dashes, high hurdles aid bolh broad jump relays. Fort Wayne, Gary, Indiana-po- lis and Linlon are regional sites_ with Ihe survivors advancing to the slate meet at Indianapolis Tech May 26. Last week's sectionals were disappointing from a record-breaking standpoint, but in most cases, ad- >erse weather conditions were responsible. Thus, only one all-time ctional record was set, a classy 3:18.4 by Gary Tollcston's mile relay-also an all-time stale record. The hottest regional is likely to be run off at Gary, where defending state champion Rooseveli checks in with 11 individuals line both relays. The Panthers had Ihe best sectional time in the half- mile relay, but city foes M;mn and Froebel own the best clock- ings at that distance. • Mann's foursome turned in a state season best of 1:30.1 Tuesday at LaPorte, while. Froebe! lias been credited with a 1:30.0 Roosevelt was timed in 1:31 lasi Friday. Only the top two relays qualify for the stale finals.
