2D-- Aug. 6, 1972 * Sunday Gmxette-Mail Ch»rl«ton, W«t CLEANING UP THE SPORTS DESK: If it's true that Charleston Catholic High School is admitting non-Catholic athletes as students with no payment of tuition asked, then the Fighting Irish are in for a lot of trouble. Jug Turner, the former baseball ump who is now president of the athletic association, says it isn't so, as far as he knows, but if KOLB TYSON TURNER anything like that ever has happened, it won't happen again. The admission of three Marmet Junior High athletes -- all non-Catholics -- a short time ago certainly didn't do Catholic any good, tuition or no tuition. Two county schools are reported to be "phasing out" Catholic on future athletic schedules. A complete "state of the Catholic athletic program" may have to be made to get these schools back in their good graces. . .Walter Zisk, father of Richie, says he has reasons to believe the Pittsburgh Pirates will bring his son up to stay next season. "He's on schedule," he said here the other day. "They figured him to make it to the top by 1973 if he elected to finish his schooling-which he did." Everyone knows that Richie will play big league ball next year, even if the Bues don't make a place for him. . . * * * Long Way Over, Long Way Back Gary Kolb, Charleston's "play everywhere" player-coach, made a long run for a fly ball against Rochester last week, finally getting there just in time to get his glove on the ball and to make a sensational running catch. Whereupon some wag in the press box announced: "There will now be a slight delay in the game until Kolb gets back to right field." It was a long hike at that and the "old man" took his time. . .Kim West had another good game for Niagara Falls last week, although he hit upon a streak of wildness. The St. Albans righthander had a no-hitter going for five innings but finally had to settle for only a 4-3 victory since he walked eight. He struck out 12, though, and that got him out of several jams. He finally had to have help with one out in the ninth but got the victory. . . * * * A Dedicated Worker Cephas Evans of Smith Road devotes a lot of his time to coaching youngsters but it is rewarding in many ways. His Bob Long "A' team won the Midget League football cham pionship in 1970 and his "B" team won in 1971 His Ellis Market Little League team has won two titles in an many years. There just area': enough Cephas Evanses around, it seems. . Bob King is now dean of Southern Conference football coaches. Starting his 15th season a$ boss of the Furman Paladins. The Southern itself is now in its 52nd season of operation. Best crack of the week: "Philadelphia has more dog teams than Canada." It was a sign in Veterans Stadium in Philly, deploring the plight of the "Futile Fils". . .Virgil Carter, who made a hit when Clarence Parkins of Fairmont Dairy brought him here last year, is fully recovered from a shoulder injury and will be Paul Brown's quarterback on the Cincinnati Bengals this year... * * * Chuck Would Stay Here Charleston's snarkling little second sacker, Charles "Chuck" Goggin HI, says he has no great desire to play winter ball this year. He would prefer to remain in Charleston if he can line up a suitable situation. Our guess is that he'd sure do a great job for someone in public relations. We know of no one any more personable than Chuck. He says winter ball is fine but it wears him down for his duties during the summer in the states. . .The Virginia Cavaliers have 14 starters back from 1971 to throw into the coming gridiron campaign but Coach Don Lawrence bemoans the lack of depth in his offensive line and inexperience at defensive tackles and in the defensive secondary. The Cavaliers meet West Virginia on Sept. 23 at Charlottesville. . . * * * Story Was Getting Around Frank Vincent, Charleston High coach, was furious when he learned The Gazette was about to publish the story that the Mountain Lions' star back, Mike Tyson, had decided to quit football. But, shucks, that's what the boy was saying all over town. And he apparently wanted to let everyone know. Danny Wells did a good job putting the pieces together. . .Holland D. Fisher, new director of public relation for W. Va. State College, calls himself "a living laboratory of human relations." Sounds interesting. It can be said for Rolland that he is an eager beaver if nothing else. And Morris Harvey has hired a fine lad as sports info director in Mike Parsons, who once worked at Hie Gazette. He has been getting some good pointers on his new job from Sir Richard Polen of the West Virginia Mountaineers. . .The Charleston Charlies say they want to "beat the heat" by playing their game with Syracuse at 4 p.m. How's that now? The weather man would call 4 p.m. in Charleston just about the hottest time of day. The players will enjoy this, though, what with their "hot-air conditioned" club house. . . Babe Ruth Ball: S. C, Weirton Win; St. Albans Falls BECKLEY-Terre H a u t e , Ind., used three first inning walks and the two-hit pitching of Gary McCabe to down St. Albans 6-1 Saturday afternoon in the Ohio Valley Regional Babe Ruth tournament. St. Albans starter Chuck Mill er allowed only four walks in the game but three of them came in the first inning which saw the winners score three times. The first two walks were sandwiched around a single and then Miller promptly walked in a run, while two more scored on an error and another single. Terre Halite's Pete Ciolli upped the lead to 5-0 with a .wo-run double in the third and the teams traded runs in the iourth to end the scoring. In another game, Terry Balard's two-run double in the bot- om of the seventh gave Lexington, Ky. a come-from-behind 4-3 win over Columbus, Ohio. Lexington starter Craig Peters ;ave up two runs in the first, ut settled down to scatter six hits and pick up the win. The double elmination tourney will continue today with St. Albans at 1 p.m. against Ohio. Petrocelli Raps Homer (Continued From Page ID) The Astros overcame solo homers by Willie McCovey, Dave jngman and Bobby Bonds in le ninth when Tommy Helms pened with an infield hit. Norm /tiller singled him to second nd both runners moved up r hen Giant reliever Jerry Johnon walked Roger Metzger. With the stage set, Cesar Ced- no hit an infield grounder and eat out the double play attempt coring Helms from third. Pete Rose tripled and raced wme with the go-ahead run on a wild throw and Johnny Bench followed with a home un in the eighth inning, lift- ng the Cincinnati Reds past he Atlanta Braves 4-2. Rose earlier had another tri- e in the Reds' two-run third. etich's first homer since July was his 25th of the season. Steve Carlton notched his 12th raight victory for the lowly hils, beating the St. Louis ards 5-0. He gave up five hits raising his record to 17-6. Bill obinson and Greg Luzinski ammered two-run homers. MB: . . .. m til e-x 1 I t Ky. ..

Title Game Today South Charleston and Weirton won semi-final victories Saturday at Little Creek Park in the State Babe Ruth Tournament for 13-year-olds. South Charleston, the defending champion, and Weirton will play at 2 p.m. today for the title. South Charleston pounded out 13 hits Saturday to eliminate Barboursville, 13-4, after slamming 17 hits Friday in a 21-1 quarter-final win over Beckley. In Saturday's triumph, winning pitcher Greg Garrett clouted a grand-slam homer and Jay Withrow collected four straight hits, including a double. Pete Polcari limited Beckley to four hits Friday and D. Underwood had four hits to drive in five runs.

No. 9097 City Swim Team Takes 2nd Place Charleston's three-year domination of the Huntington AAU Invitational Swim Meet ended Saturday night as Lexington, Ky. amassed 962 points to takei the team title at the 14th annual meet the locals a distant second at 648 points. Despite the disappointing finish, three Charleston swimmers won their division's high-point trophy. Rebekah Bannister won the 100-meter freestyle, backstroke and butterfly along with the 200-meter individual medley to capture the 13-14 girls hardware. Sharon Trembly, in the girls 15-17 class, only won two events, the 100-meter breaststroke and 200-meter open women's breas- troke, but had places in three other events to win a high point award. Her time of 3:05.3 in the 200-meter event was a West Virginia record. The final individual honor went to Chris Smith for his firsts in the 100-meter freestyle , and butterfly and places in two er i ea ds Boris Spassky, 6% to V-i, after 10 games. It should be [kept in mind that Fischer did 'Wayward Bus' Ruled Out, Charlies Will Fly Again The Charleston Charlies are back on the airlines--the "way ward bus" being sidetracked almost completely. Allegheny Airlines announced Saturday that it would fly the team to Toledo Friday for the opening of a series there and would fly the team from Toledo to the next league sto] at Louisville. Then the team will bus it home from Louisville Ed Bowyer of Allegheny said the next trip will be com mercial, however, and not the usual charter. "They canceled their charters with us sometime ago," Bow yer said, "and we were not able to restore them in time for this trip." He said, however, that the Charlies would fly charter on their remaining trips. The players, along with manager Red Davis, had rebelled at bus travel after one of the buses broke down enroute from Toledo to Louisville and the team spent something like 12 hours in transit. On the same day an important game with Louisville was on schedule. CHESS Fischer Doesn't Question Sickness of Opponents By Edward M. Foy pike.
