Ten Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Tuesday Evening, June 28, UO). Law, Ford Showing Championship Form At Random The Dykeman Park bestball tournament Sunday had a couple of notes worth passing on. . Ray Olson and Howard Pashong finished the 18 holes eight un'. der par and two strokes out of -third place. They, could have easily •tied for that position if not for an unfortunate..happening to Olson. '.* On the 14th hole l£ay hit his drive well down the fail-way and -.was close to'the ball- ; of an opponent, Ray and- the opponent chatted for a-while during the. time the preceding foursome was putting put ;on the green. . "••* .-:" '•'.' When the/time came for.. Olson to hit his second shot be banged , it within inches of the .cup and appeared to have an easy birdie. -But it was found that he had ; hit the wrong bail and'it cost him a two-stroke penalty. His second shot wasn'.t near as good as the first. . . -'-'•' - **-*. ' «** ;~ One of the teams that finished high in the final standings almost started out with just one half the team. Seems the other half showed up late and just made it as the foursome was due to tee off on the first hole. •'.-,,. : • * * # # * - * An old friend of Logansport golfers was. on hand for the event. Jim Easter, former pro at Dykeman, showed he could still handle the clubs with great finesse. * * * . # IK * Several Logansport golfers toured. courses in Lafayette Sunday. One group played Purdue South and the other the Lafayette Elks. Frank Henry matched par at the tough Purdue course with three birdies and three bogeys to go with 12 pars. Ken Kite had a 72 at the Elks course. * * # * * * Bill Newcomb of Royal Center a>nd Michigan State will be back in this area in time for the Logansport city golf championships. Newcomb was the Indiana Open champion last year and won his first two matches in the U.S. Amateur tourney. * * * * * * A report has reached this desk that a member of last year's starting lineup on the Logansport High School Football team has been told he won't be able to take part in football next year as a senior. ' The alleged dismissal involved wearing senior cords the last day of school and we were told it was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back. * * * * * « Ask any sports writer if this isn't one of his pet peeves: A coach asking and getting publicity for his teams games and then if he doesn't win he fails to call in the results and the paper is stuck without much of a story. But if he wins you get -all the information you can ask for. * * * # * # Ralph Peterson, formerly an assistant under Cliff Wells at Tulane University and recently signed in a similar position at the University of Missour, was a visitor to this cily over the weekend. Peterson was here to, visit friends and play some golf. He left to attend the All-Star game in Indianapolis Saturday. Peterson is originally from Culver, Ind. « * * ' • # * * A letter from a teen-age reader: Dear Sir: In regard to the article on "Mantle Will Play in Series With Tigers,"' you said that Mickey Mantle hurt his leg in >a game with the Minnesota Twins on May 18th. Since I have been a Yankee fan all my 16 years of life, I am sure that he received the injury when the Yankees played the Cleveland Indians on May 18th. Thank You. Steve Achey, Walton, Ind. Sorry Steve. The story by United Press International stating the hijury was in the game with Minnesota on May 18th was correct. Mantle pulled up lame trying to beat out a ground ball against the Twins as the Minnesota team dropped the Yankees from a tie for first place that night, 4-3. But thanks for the letter and nex time I'll bet you're right! It's letters like yours that keep up on the ball behind these typewriters. * * * * * * Remember the name Jesse Bowdry? it was only Feb. 7, 1961 when he fought Harold Johnson for the NBA version of the light- Jieavyweight title after Archie Moore was stripped of his title for failure to defend his crown. That's less than a year and a half ago. This week the NBA distributed to the boxing commissons in states across the country a bulletin noting fighters who have been pushed around easily by opponents lately and asking denial to box to those on the list. Bowdry is on the list. He's lost six of seven since fighting Johnson, two by tte knockout route. • * * »fc * * * We were once asked what we thought is the toughest shot in golf. We think it's the shot just after you hacked one up in bad shape. Then there's always that first tee shot on Sunday morning. * * * * * -* The Detroit Tigers face another hurdle in their battle to get back into the thick of the American League, (pennant race. In the next 13 days the Tigers face 15 contests with only one day off. ! This on top of just finishing a doublehcader "with the Yankees Saturday, the 22 inning affair Sunday and then another tilt with New York on Monday. After the Yankee series was finished the Bengals started with a double-header Tuesday with front running Cleveland. After three with the Indians, the Tigers take on Baltimore in four games, four with the White Sox, three more with Cleveland and then four more with the Oriole's. * * * ; * * # ILogansport High School Basketball Coach Jim Jones' cage school is in full swing at the Berry Bowl. Some 31) boys arc enrolled in the two daily classes and will hold an All-Star game with'similar boys from Lebanon and Elwood at a near-future date. * * * . • * « # The Detroit Tigers traded off one of the all-time favorites in the Motor City Monday and we imagine the management will hear about it for some time to cpme. Charlie Maxwell was shipped to the Chicago White Sox for first ; baseman-outfielder Bob Farley. . The popular outfielder, affectionately called "Ole Paw Paw" " (Paw Paw, Mich., is Charlie's off season home) by fans and writers • alike, was known in recent years for his Sunday home runs. ' His best season in the majors was in 1956 when he hit 28 home "runs and hit .326 for the Tigers. In 1959 he hit 31 homers. Last year ' 'he slipped to five homers after the Tigers acquired Billy Bruton and Maxwell was forced to part-time duty and pinch-hitting chores, Farley had only 20 times at bat in the majors prior to this season/ He was involved in the trade that sent Billy Pierce and Don ; Larsen to San Francisco from the White Sox. ; DICK WATTS ALL TOBACCO CIGAR MILD CORONA 10* CUSTOMilV!ADE 49* CORONA OLD-TIME FLAVOR AND AROMA Buc Pitcher Reaches Career High for SOs By MARTIN LADER UPI Sports Writer The. stakes seem higher than ever for Verhpn Law and Whitey: Ford this year,; but the two veteran pitchers are coming through in championship style', Law and Ford- already have woven they can beat'the besLand low' they must,best sore arms jiat'iare threatening "their careers. Law, who won only three games .ast year, .went all.the way for u&''fifth triumph of 1962 Monday night as the Pittsburgh Pirates routed .the (New York Mets, 13-3. Tord also showed championship orm in helping • the New York Yankees gain a 2-0 decision over the Detroit Tigers. , 'Ford was' forced to leave the jame with one out in the. ninth nning, however, when he.felt a sharp twinge in his left shoulder; Marshall Bridges came on to complete the shutout.' ' It was only two years ago that ,aw won 20 games, in the regular season and- then carried the surmising Pirates, to a World Series conquest over the Yankees by winning two games in the. fall classic. As a fitting' climax to his year's work, Law was voted the Dy Young .award as the major eague's outstanding pitcher. The award got dusty last year as Law developed' arm trouble and sat out most of the campaign, lis record was only 3-4. But he 32-year-old Mormon deacon >roved his arm was right Monlay by .striking out 11. Mets, a career high for him. Law's task was made easier when his teammates tallied six' •uns in. the first inning off New York . starter Craig Anderson. Smoky Burgess and Roberto Clemente paced Pittsburgh's 15-hit attack with three safeties each. The victory was Law's fifth in eight decisions. Ford, who enjoyed his best year n 1981 with--25 ; victories, two Vorld Series triumphs and. the Cy Young award, developed his arm rouble early this season. Still he yielded only two hits Monday and t was the second straight game n which he pitched -shutout ball )efore being removed in the ninth nning. His string of scoreless innings now stands at 20 1-3. The Yankee-Tiger affair was .he only game scheduled in the American League, while in other National League action the San Francisco Giants closed in on ! irst place by beating the Cincinnati Reds, 3-1; the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the Milwaukee Jraves, 8-4; the St. Louis Cardinals rallied for a 64 victory over ,he Chicago Cubs, and the Philadelphia Phillies edged the Houson Colts, 4-3. FORMER BERRY NET CHAMPION Don ,T. Schmidt, one of Logansport's brighest tennis stars, cap-' lured the Indianapolis city mens singles title 'in a tournament final match Sunday at Tarkington :ourts in the capital city. Schmidt defeated Ben Harkn in straight sets. Then Schmidt learned with Henry Whitesell of. Butler to upset the defending champion doubles team of Harlan and Duesler 6-2, 64.

Herron's 65 To Undergo Check The sensational five-under-par 65 fired by Jack Herron in Sunday's best ball tournament at Dykeman Park will be taken under 'advisement as a new course record ' according to Pro John Caritfiers. Herron shot rounds of 32-33 for a 65, which is one stroke better than the recognized course record on the par ,70 Dykeman Park course. Carithers said several golfers have fired 66s on the course, including. Dick Nethercutt, Bobby Davis and Carithers. Any round that would be recognized as a new record would have to be shot in competition. The only thing holding back approval of Herron's mark is whether he putted out • all putts during the round. Having played in a best- ball tournament there remained the possibility that in some way Herron might have picked up his ball when his playing partner, Tom Smith, had the "best ball while applying his handicap on a hole. Carithers said he would check with Herron and others in Sunday's foursome to validate the 65. Following is Herron's card on the 6,114-yard Dykeman course.
