'Eighteen Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Rambling At Random Sports Banquet Honors LHS Athletes Tonight With the exception of the appearance of Bob Wolfe in the state track meet the athletic season is over at Logansport High School for another school year. Wednesday night at the K of C the athletes in all the interscholastic sports wiil be honored at a dinner featuring Butler University Athletic Director Tony Hinkle. Wolf's attempt in the high hurdles at Indianapolis Saturday will put the official finishing stroke on the activities. Bob will have his work cut Out lor him and if he even qualifies for the finals it would be quite an accomplishment. * * « # * * Logansport Football Coach Harvey Roberts and local football fans got somewhat ol a scare last week when it was learned that star fullback Bob Kerns might move to Elkhart as soon as the school year was finished But the rumor has been dispelled and the junior speedster will return for another year on the Logansport gridiron. Bob will be too old to participate in track next year. Kerns has been living for the past few years with Fairvicw's assistant principal, Loren Dannheiscr. Dannheiser has signed a teaching contract with the Elkhart school system for the .1962-63 school year. It was at first feared that Kerns might move wife the school teacher. But Bob has decided to move in with relatives in Logansport and finish his education here. 44* # * '* Friday afternoon this writer will make the trip to Indianapolis for •the state track meet and to take in the "500* Festival open. Looking at the record book put out by the tournament officials it's found that record round is Bill Casper's 62 in 1960. Casper had 32 the front side and 30 the back. Caspar used 27 puts during the round. But the putting phase,is not a record. Jerry Barber used only 25 • putts in the first round in 1960 while carding a 63. Both players are entered in this year's tournament. Among the other "name" players on hand are: Dave Ragan, Dave Hill Don Whitt, Billy Maxwell, Paul Harney, Art Wall, Lionel Hebert, Joe Campbell, Julius Boros, Tommy Jacobs, George Bayer, Bob Rosburg, Jack Nicklaus. Jack Fleck, D.on January, Johnny Pott, Mike Souchak, Jack Burke Jr., Ted Kroll, "Bill Casper, Gary Player, Bill Collins, Jay Hebert, Al Johnston and. many others. Despite the fact that Arnold Palmer and Sarn Snead are missing from the field, it should be quite a tournament and should draw a large following. « * * * * * A funny thins; about the Dykeman Park golf course: To dale shooting a 71-74 has been little trouble to a few golfers. There have been several rounds in that category. But Breaking par (70) seems to pose quite a oroblem. Par on the front side is 36 and it has been rakr cd considerably by the better golfers. The back side's 34 par has been matched several! Hmes and broken on a few occasions. But to our knowledge there hasn't been a 69 or better recorder this season. At least not in comnEtition. * « * » * * Some of the Chicago sports writers have been on Cubs' owner P. K. Wrigley lately for building a ball team that has been described as a "scrap heap." We agree. Recently a dual involving sending George Altman to Milwaukee for catcher Del Crandall was in the fire but fell through. What good this would have done the Cubs is beyond us. • Wrigley is going to have to do some wholesaling if the Cubs are to build and he might just as well start with Ernie Banks. ' During the inter-league trading season he undoubtably received plenty of lucrative offers for the slugging first baseman. It goes without saying the Cubs need pitching. * * * * * * • The Cubs coitfcl get plenty for Banks. In the American League they -might have picked up Jim Bunning or Frank Lary as well as another lesser pitcher for Banks. With the June 15 trading deadline still some time away the Cubs can still deal him off for a couple of top notch players. Certainly it's realized the punch that Banks adds to the Cub lineup and that he's a great favorite among the fans. But unless Wrigley and Cub fans want to watch the Chicago team dwell around in eighth, ninth or tenth place for the next five years, some one-fpr-lhree or two-for-four trade involving Banks will probably have to be made. _ With the start the Cubs have this'season it might be well to wait until the fall and get Banks out of the league so he won't come back and haunt Wrigley field. „ But if the Cubs are going to get away from that scrap heap dis- cription they're going to have to pull off a big deal. And let's face it. Are the other clubs interested in besides Banks? * » * * * * It is seldom a member of the fourth estate turns his blade on another, especially when they work on the same newspaper. But, lo and behold, it has happened right here at the Pharos-Tribune. Once a week in one section of this paper there is a column called by its author "News and Views." The "views" last week were an apparent attempt to disguise or diviate from the: fact the writer has a complete lack of self-discipline. She panned the other members of the staff for attempting lo stop smoking, or for stopping and then starting again. Some of the .reporting was quite true but never-the-less it was very devious. At one point she wrote, "True, the smog has cleared up. You now can see who's been 1 sitting on the other side of the office all this time." The fact of the matter is that the three members of this staff that stopped momentarily are all situated in one corner of the room and looking on a straight line from her desk to the desk of a non-smoking reporter, she had not apparently seen before, is a straight line separated by the desk of one non-smoker. Therefore, it is rather safe to assume that if she had not been able to see across the room in this direction before, it was through the fault of one of two things: She couldn't see through the'smoke that continually clouds her part of ; the office, or she's as blind as Dracula during daylight savings time. , DICK WATTS National LL Picks Up32 A total of 32 more youngsters were added to Logansport LLB teams Tuesday night when the annual auction was conducted for National League clubs at the home of player agent Don Crain.
