Eight Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Tuesday Evening, June 5, 19GZ* Summer Baseball Programs Underway Koufax Strikeout Pace Could Set New National League Mark By NORMAN MILLER UPI Sports Writer Twice during his, career Sandy Koufax strained his manager's patience to the breaking point, ; and now for his forbearance skip. •per Walt Alston of the Los Ang' eles Dodgers' is being rewarded .with the 'best National League -strikeout pitching since D-a-zzy : Vance. ; 'Koufax struck out 13 batters • Monday night in pitching the Dod'. gers to a three-hit, 6-3 victory ;6ver the Philadelphia Phillies. It • Was the only game played in the "major leagues and it moved the _Dodgers to within two games.of -the first-place San Francisco Gi". aiits. " This was the fourth straight ' game in which Koufax struck out ID or more batters and it raised his season total to 123 whiffs. At this rate, the 26-year-old left- hander could surpass Vance's 262 strikeouts in 1924 and the league record of 267 set by Christy Mathewson in 1903. Not Always So All this fine flinging makes Koufax mightly popular with Alston these days, but it wasn't always thus. As late as 1960, when Koufax ;had an 8-13 record, Alston was •beginning to wonder if he'd ever -learn how to control his blazing '.fastball. • ''Koufax is a mystery," Alston •lamented. "He can't throw anything but one kind of ball — a can't give up on •high one. -"Still, you him." Alston never lost his faith in oufax' pitching, but there was an incident in the Dodgers' 1961 spring training camp that severely taxed Alston's patient soul.! Koufax and his pitching buddy, •Larry Sherry, came in a little •late one night and carried on rather noisily in their room. When Alston knocked on the door, they wouldn't let him in. Alston became so enraged, he pounded hard enough to break the band on his World Series ring. Reads Riot Act He read the riot act to the two pitchers the next ^day and let _th_em know who was boss. Kou- Jax's control, of his fastball and his evening hours, have improved noticeably since that time. Monday night's triumph, made easier by the homers by Wally Moon and John Roseboro, was Koufax' eighth against two defeats. And for a while it looked like he might wind up with a one- hitter. Tony Taylor hit his first pitch of the game for. a single, but Koufax gave up no more hits until Johnny Callison singled with one out in the ninth. A walk and Jackie Davis' homer produced •Philadelphia's three runs. Art Mahaffey was the loser on his 24th birthday, making his record 5-7.

Harvey Turns Down Highest Salary in Hockey History By DICK, BACON United Press International MONTREAL • (UPI) - Homesick Doug Harvey, highest paid coach in. National Hockey League history, has turned his back on a' $25,000 New York Ranger salary to stay home in Montreal. Harvey, . New York president Bill Jennings. and general manager Muzz Patrick jointly announced the brilliant defenseman's decision late Monday night at the conclusion of the first day of the three-day NHL meeting. The 37-year-old Montreal native and one of the NBL's great all- time, stars, said the decision was final, but the Rangers left the door open, "We won't make a decision on naming a replacement for 45, 50 or 60 days," Patrick said. "We'll protect him tomorrow (in the league'draft) and we still hope he may change his mind." And Jennings added: "I still wouldn't be surprised to see him around New York next fall." Patrick, who said he still hadn't given up hope of persuading Harvey to change, his mind as,of two days ago; said .that.-Entile (Cat) Francis and George (Red) Sullivan were the: leading: candidates for.the job. .Harvey had advised the Rangers of his decision to quit after completing his first season on a three-year contract .a few months ago. He had written theni a letter advising them of his decision but hadn't mailed 'it. He wrote a second letter dated May 31 "which said "just about the same thing." "I guess my roots are planted too deeply here in Montreal," it read in part, '".what with, my business, friends and home all being here." JackHerron Fires 66 In Golf League; Cox Low Net Jack Tferron fired a brilliant four-under par 66 during Sunday's action in the Logansport Golf League, easily .the lowest, of the season in loop action. Herron's round was easily the best in the low gross division, but Earl Cox took the low net honors when he scored an 82 with, a 20 handicap to give him a net total of 62.' Champion Insurance maintained its large lead in the National League by collecting 223 points, best in the National, lo make its total for the year 854 points. D'Andrea's Dist. moved into first place alone in the American League by scoring 218 points and took a one point load over Coca- Cola which had 217 points and is second with a total of 843 mark- But the high team honors for Sunday's play went lo Foster's Amusement which scored 224 Arty. Gen. May Ask Reds To Open Books to Buyers •COLUMBUS, Ohio (UPI) Ohio Atty. Gen. Mark McElroy plans to ask the courts this week -to order the Cincinnati Baseball Club Co. to open its 'books to a group of prospective buyers. The Crosley Foundation sold the Cincinnati Reds to general manager William 0. (Bill) DeWitf lor $4,625,000 on March 23. The foundation received a major share of stock in the club following the death last year of longtime Reds owner Powel Crosley Jr. . Shortly after the sale to DeWitt was announced, a syndicate headed by Cincinnati real estate de-. veloper oseph F. Rippe said it offered $5.5 million for the club. However, the foundation said Rippe never made a formal offer. McElroy questioned the sale. He said state law made him legally responsible for the operation of the charitable trusts, of which the Crosley Foundation is one. Last week he requested the foundation to voluntarily open the books to Rippe but the foundation refused. -•- McElroy's chief assistant, Theodore Saker, said Monday he would ask the First DJs'trict Court of Appeals in Cincinnati to order •the foundation to agree to the at- torney general's request. Saker said it did not mak»"lho slightest difference" that DeWitt had pledged to keep the Reds in Cincinnati, or that the foundation had given $700,000 to the University of Cincinnati and $300,000 to the Cincinnati YMCA. He said these actions did not alter the legal rights of the Rippe group, "or any other group" interested in buying the club, from inspecting its books. McElroy has indicated, that if the Rippe group, after looking at the books and agreeing to e e r - tain conditions, made a higher and better offer for the Reds, he would ask the foundation to void the. sale to DeWilt.
