PUBLIC LIBRARY Monday Evening, June 4, 1962. Logansporl, Indiana, Phawis-Tribiine Seven,.Houston Colts Win First Doubleheader Lionel Hebert Cops Memphis Open In Playoff Mets' Losing Streak Hits Fifteen Games By JOE SARGIS UPI Sports Writer The Houston Colts and the New York Mels, major league baseball's two newest teams, were at opposite ends of the rainbow today. Where unadulterated joy pervaded the Colts' camp following their first doubleheader victory, nothing 'but gloom surrounded the bedraggled Mets, who nursed the season's longest losing streak which now has reached 15 games. The Colts, ~ who went for youth in their building program, flexed muscles more becoming of the high-riding San Francisco Giants or New York Yankees in bopping the Pittsburgh Pirates,. 10-6 and 10-3, Sunday to move to within four games of the first division in the National league. The Mets, on the other hand, finding out the hard way that you can't win with yesterday's stars, dropped a 6-1 decision to the NL- leading Giants, leaving them buried in the cellar with the worst record in the major leagues. Plenty Of Hits The Colts, led by Carl Warwick, Ramon Mejias, Bob Lillis and Norm Larker, sprayed a total of 31 hits over Forbes Field during the doubleheader, cooling off the Pirates.who had won 10 of their last 11 games. After juggling 16 players in the first-game victory which went to knuckleballer Bob Tiefenaiier, the Colls sewed up the second game in a hurry, scoring seven runs in the first • inning to make it a breeze for Ken Johnson, Warwick, young outfielder recently picked up from the St. Louis Cardinals, had six hits, Mejias and Lillis had four each in •the niglitcap and Larker had four for the two games. One of Mejias' hils was his 13th homer. The Giants, taking advantage o the Los Angeles Dodgers' two straight losses to the Philadelphia Phillies, widened their NL lead to 2% games to all but make the Dodgers' recent 13-game winning streak just so much exercise. Roof Caves In However, the Mels, who fine ways to beat themselves, made i a tough battle Sunday before finally yielding. Bob Miller matched San Francisco ace Juan Marichal strikeout for strikepu for six innings before another en thusiastic crowd at New York's Polo Grounds, and then the ro'o fell in. Five hits and a hit bats man .in the seventh gave the Giants five runs. Marichal, in winning his eightl game against three defeats, hell the Mets to six hits, and the! only run was unearned. Willie Mays, hearing boos in the Pole Grounds for the first time in hi career, hit his 19th home run in the sixth inning to tie the scon at 1-1. In other NL games, the Phillie exploded for five runs jri th fourth inning to beat the Dodg ers, 7-5; the Chicago Cubs par layed home runs by "Billy Wil liams and George Allman plu some fine relief work by Don El ston into a 6-3 victory over the 'Cincinnati Reds, and the Milwau kee Braves scored five runs in the first inning and made them stand up for a 6-4 victory ove the slumping Cardinals. Tie For First The Yankees moved into a first place tie with the Cleveland In dians in the American Leagu race by beating the Los Angele Angels, 6-3, while the Indian dropped an 8-6 decision to the De troit Tigers, who moved to withi one game of the top. In other AL games, the Chicago White So shutout the Baltimore Orioles, 2-( and the Minnesota Twins downe the Washington Senators, 7-5. Bos ton at Kansas City was postponec because of rain.

The parent was displeased with lack-of a fitness program in the local system and asked that something be dope by the board. He complained that his son was unable to do one chin-up, etc., and that this problem should be corrected with some sort of physical education system to help with the physical development of the youth of this city. He said he moved here from Illinois a few, years ago and that there was a form of PE in that town that .was - of great help to the youngsters. The board said that in the past there had been such a program here and it had vanished with the resignation of a physical education teacher who had been a tremendous leader in this field. She had not been replaced. The local board promised the man an investigation into the matter to find whether it feasiable to again start such a program locally. This writer was intrigued with the situation and thought to do a little investigating into the matter. With the crowded schools of today many of them have been forced to drop such programs. One such system is the one in 'hich we were educated. We de- ided to write to several physical ducation directors throughout the midwest. Here are two of the re lys we received — one at the worst extreme and the other at ie best » * * "Dear Dick: ". ; . Our; P. 1 E. program is no onger set .up as we would like :.• We used to have a P.E. in- iructor for all grades including ne through six.

Supervisor of Physical Ed- cnlion Evanston, 111," » « * According to most sources the ogansport program is similar to at in Adrian. Carl A. Zimmerman, superinten- ent of Logansport school?, says e biggest item facing- the local tup is the financing of'physical lucation teachers for the grades, e said it would take another 0,000 for the hiring of the te'ach- which. wquld be around an dditional 2 to 3 cents burden on ,e tax dollar. * * * •<»' This program, or lack of it, is ot the whole responsibility of the ch'ool -board. In the past there ave been parents in Logansporl lat have expressed opinions thai ley would prefer the system to e without the physical training )r the youngsters, the time in- ead to be used in the regular .assroom. To this we can say but one ling—hogwash, We could sit here and pount his typewriter for hour aftei our and explain why a youngster wuld be taught to train his body nd why it's just as importan s training the mind. But, you've eard these arguments from iany sources, including the Pres dent of the United States. Governor Matthew Welsh has rod aimed June 18-22 as "Indi na Community Recreation Fit ess Week." During the wecl ome 50,000 Indiana boys am iris will take fitness tests on a>grounds throughout the state nd Welsh has been told by In iana health and recreation lead rs that about half of them wil ail. ' \ Here is an example of th •ests: For girls of 10-11 year icy should be able to run till 0-yard sprint in nine second nd walk and run three quarter f a mile in 11 minutes, a slant ng broad jump should have istancc of 4 feet and six inches licy should be able to throw jaseball 40 feet and make a run ing high jump of Iwo feet si nches. For boys the same age the re iiiircments are: to be able I un the sprint in eight seconds valk and run tfie long distance i 0 minutes, broad jump five fee hrow the baseball 85 feet an nake a high jump of 2 feet nin nches. One person has told us. Hha his seemed like a pretty toug est. Really! The same lest w. given to a group of elderly la dies in a nursing home in anothe state; and they made a bette score than that made by a grou of. children. Reason: The chi dren were, lacking a physical edi cation program in the ear ;rades. It can be said that the kids" 15 years ago and back had a ,h :le more .training for physical ness than today's children. Man walked miles to school, worki hard at home or on the farm etc., teachers and some faciliti were available to teach at lea something that resembled a ph sical education system. Not ; of these items were available all, but some were to most. So, if you think Unit your child physical health should be im proved it's up to you ; to do som thing about it. Talk to your scho officials and find out what ca be done. That's what tti there for.
