Juqn One IJnhapjpy Fella; Dunning Best-Paid Phillie By ED SCHUYLER JR. Associated Press Sports Writer "Manager-second baseman" Juan Marichal says he's tired of reading the same thing and unless the San Francisco Giants do something about it, he will sit out this season. What Marichal, who says he already has returned two contracts, wants to read is a pact with a $125,000-figure on it. The Giants reportedly are offering him $90,000 an estimated $15,000 increase over last -season, to. pitch, not to manage or play second base as he currently is doing for his' own Softball team in the Dominican Republic." '• '.••• ..- > ;• "We're doing pretty good," Marichal said Tuesday. "We played 10 games already and we won six or seven." ..•..'•'.* * * . San Francisco might; have trouble winning six of 10 if they don't have Marichal on the mound; '.The star right-hander, 25-6 last season, also said: "I told Mr, Eeeney. (General Manager Charles Feeney) that i[ all the contracts are going t» be - the same, he should stop sending theti." While Marichal was waiting for satisfaction, pitcher Jim Sunning found some'-a reported $80,000 worth — with the Philadelphia Phillies, who were helped by a good game of golf. The salary, an estimated $10,1000 boost, makes the 35-ysar-oId Banning the highest paid player in Phillie history. The veteran righthander, who won 19 games i neaeh of the last three seasons, was in a happy mood at Clearwater, Fla., saying he beat teammate Larry Jackson in golf Sunday with a "and figured I could afford to take less than I wanted." : Another veteran pitcher, southpaw Steve Barber of Baltimore 1 , came to terms Monday, but there was a condition put in his contract. His arm, which became sore last season, must hold up if he is to make mere money.: The contract calling for an estimated $30,000, the same as his 1966 salary, states that if he remains on the active roster past May 11 he will get an increase, believed to be about $3,000. 22 for Dickson JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) John Dickson scored 22 points and Dave Renn 20 Monday night as Arkansas State defeated Trinity 93-79 to complete an unbeaten Southland Conference season. The Indians finished 8-0 in the league and now await the start of the NCAA college division playoffs. Harold. Scifres added 18 points for the Tribe and held John Lynch, Trinity's second leading scorer, to only one point. Milt Sullivan had 14 points for Arkansas State. By ED HAYES, Sports Editor Just before the last buzzer of the first game, a 6'8 member of the girls physical education department team dipped a field goal to lead the lovelies to a 28-28 upset tie over the Hi-Y boys. Wliat's lhat? You've never heard of an upset lie in basketball? Buddy, they did a lot of things in the Blythuville Higli gym last night you never ever heard about. * * t In the other half of the doubleheadcr, played for the benefit of Kenneth Ralph, members of the BHS male faculty (mostly coaches) showed the BHS sophomore Red Raiders a few lessons as they ran to a 60-49 triumph. In other words, they did a good job of practicing what they leach. This morning, BHS teacher James Raby, coordinator of the 1,000 miles-off-Broadway production, announced that $419 had been collected for teenager Kenny wiw is still paralyzed from a swimming mishap last summer. The boy is undergoing specialized treatment in Chicago. When all the returns are in, Raby expects the tally to reach $450. * * * The BHS gym was a good place to stay away from if you didn't have charity in your heart, because some liberties were taken with the rules that were set down more than 75 years ago by James Naismith in Springfield, Mass. Liberties were taken especially in the first game, billed as a handicap event. The boys wore a boxing glove on one hand in the first half while speeding to a 22-11 lead, and a glove on both hands in the last portion. The PE girls were paced in the catch-up half by teachers Becky McAlpine and Val Stewart. It was Becky's crisp inbounds pass to the 6'8 center that set up the winning basket. * * • * Actually the center was Walt Hampton from the BHS varsity Chickasaws, disguised as a referee. He swallowed his whistle, slipped under the basket, took the pass and dipped .it without a challenge. The timing was perfect. The Harlem Globetrotters couldn't have staged it better. And who was there to say the basket was illegal? Not Ron Boggs, the other referee. He swallowed his whistle, too. The girls were accelerated by Paula Wood's 10 points. Kathy King collected 8; Patsy Ross, Terry Henson and Me-;, lissa Dllahunty 2 each. For the Hi-Y hoys, Johnny Holifield, Barry Smith and? Charles Gaines hit 6 points apiece; John Brownlee, Waynr Duncan, Jim Ellis, Kent llaynes, Phil Duncan and Casey Tetley all contributed deuces. Esau Dean and Harold Davis coached the boys, while Raby masterminded the girls strategy. * * * Then a roar went up as the BHS coaches and teachers took, the court for their warmups. And line figures they were,. too. Mixing savvy with a fast break, the adults galloped to a.' 31-24 lead that was never seriously challenged. Fred Mitchell ... held the team together and sacked 18 points. Hustling Bob Williams bangd 9. Agile Dan Rains ran up 8; Dwight Williams and Jim Dixon 7s; Ron Worthen (refugee from the A-State football team) 6; Alan Stolt 3; and Lonnie Heft 2. * * * For the Red Raiders, who began to mix it up in the second half when they found out — too late — that the coaches weren't going to pull any punches, Terry Gurley turned out to be the leader with 12 points. Mike Henderson scored 9. Ronnie Rowland rolled up 8; Charles Hall 7; Donnie, Stout 4; Jody Gude 3; Buddy Layton, Jim Presnell and Rob Porter 2s. The referees were Dor. Haskew and Stan Williams. Several times they agreed on calls. Steve Liltrell was timekeeper, Harold Kinnell scorer. Music was furnished by the BHS pep band. Tlie trumpet soloist who blew taps for the Raiders was unidentified. * * * Warmup time before the game was cut short. They fear, ed the old men would wear out before the action commenced. The men huffed and puffed but they blew the boys down. It was a rough battle. "I've never been fouled so much in all my life," groaned Rains, picking himself up off the floor for the third time. If he'd been there, Kenny Ralph would've gotten a kick out of it. Tennessee Trips at Tuscaloosa but Vandy Is Defeated Vanderbilt 12-4 in their whirl for .he crown and an "NCAA tournament bid. The dance floor in the Big Ten cleared . somewhat as Indiana protected its narrow lead by stepping lightly past Michigan Ann Arbor. . : ' ' * ' * * Michigan State broke a four- way tie for second by setting down Ohio State 74-63 for its 19th straight victory ; at home, while Purdue bumped Iowa out of the runner-up spot 78-75 at Iowa City. The Hoosiers stand in the spotlight with an 8-3 record with the Spartans next at 7-4. Northwestern and Wisconsin, both idle, are 6-4 and Iowa is 6-5. | Western Kentucky and Texas ] Western, with NCAA bids wrapped up, protected their Top Ten rankings with ease. The third-ranked Hilltoppers crowned Austin Peay 116-75 at Bowling Green and the Miners, No. 9, pushed aside Arizona Slate 61-51 at Tempe. *. . * * Independents Georgia Tech and Chicago Loyola, trying, to cut in on an NIT bid, breezed along while another hopeful, Clemson of the Atlantic Coast Conference, .stumbled. The Engineers 17-9, paced by Ted Tomasovich's 27 points, stopped Miami of Florida 90-84 while Jim Tillrhari scored 39 [joints as Loyola, 14-9, clobbered Bowling Green 110-93 for its fifth straight victory.
