Stormy C's : .... 18 44 No One to Match Peggy Fleming .VIENNA .(AP) - The world's best figure skaters — past and present — said the winners in' the 1967 World Figure Skating Championships will dominate the competition next year in the Winter Olympics. •••• They siy there is nobody yet who can match the grace and precision of Peggy Fleming of Colorado Springs, Colo., in the women's skating. They say that Emmerich Danzer, the Viennese grocer's son, still is supreme in the men's division and that Russia's Ludmila Belousova and Oleg Protopopov, although both in their 30s, can still hold off a pack of talented young challengers. And all agree that England's Diane Towler and Bernard Ford are the best of the ice dancers. * * * Dick Button, one of the world's all-time great figure skaters and now a television sports producer, made this prediction for the 1968 winter Olyhpics at Grenoble, France: "If this year's winners skate as good as they can, they will win again." Two-time women's champ, Miss Fleming, an 18-year-old Colorado college freshman, put the finger on Karen Magnussen of Canada as an up-and-comer. At 14, Miss Magnussen was the youngest skater in the women's competition and finished 12th. Bob, Chief Score at Base Bob Livingston carded 32 low net and Anthony (Chief) Zlclinski scored 38 low gross in the golf tournament at Ely- theville Air Force Base Saturday. Dick Dale was runnerup in low net standings with 33, Bob Jones knocked 33.S, Pro Bill Pace announced that the season-opening tournament is April 1-2, 36 holes, full handicap. Interested shooters are asked to sign up now at the pro shop. Perfect Season at Y Phillips Unbeaten Phillips Ford basketeers finished an unbeaten season Saturday night and claimed both the YMCA Seanior League championship and the tournament championship by squeezing past Langley Auto Sales 6563 in an- up-and-dOwn ball game. In the consolation game Randall Company forfeited to Ark-Mo Handy Flames. * * * The Phillips men were forced to go all out in faking the tournament championship. They led 15-12 after one period but fell behind 32-31 as the half ended. In (he third quarter they built a six-point advantage at 5347 and needed all of it as Langley stormed back in the fourth on a 16-12 quarter. * * * FOur of Phillips' five; starters were in double figures, led by Ron Wright at 20. Charles Tippy scored 15; Paul Wilbanks 12; Johnny Ellis 11; and John Thompson 7. For Langley's Gale Downing divided game nbnors with 20, while Morris Finley swished 13; Bill LandOn 12; and Bill Langley and Larry Thompson 9 apiece. Presbyterians March In YMCA's season-ending Inter-Church tornament Saturday afternoon, First Presbyterian advanced to the tourney finals with a lopsided 115-43 win over First Baptist's No. 2 team; and First Methodist, with some of its players as managers of the Slytheville High varsity in Little Rock, failed to place a team and was moved out of the tourney by Trinity Baptist. In the double elimination affair, First Baptist No. 1 and First Presbyterian are scheduled at 2 p.m. Saturday for championship of the winners bracket, while Trinity and First Baptist No. 2 must attempt to eliminate each other for another shot at the top runners. * * * First Presbyterian had little trouble with the undermanned Baptists who had at least two first stringers on the sick list. They hope to have these men back in harness Saturday against Trinity. The First Baptist No. 1 Presbyterian game should be an interesting one to watch. In three previous meet- Ings this season, First Baptist won the first, Presbyterians the second and Baptists nailed down the league campionship on a two-point win in the play-off.

Sprfoj Experiment New Baseball Rule By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS | team in the Giants' first intra- Il's October, 1972, and Willie Mays, who is 41 years old, has 713 lifetime home runs, just one less than Babe Ruth's career total. The Giants and Dodgers are tied for the National League lead and are playing each other or 1 the last day of the season. The Dodgers lead 1-0 in the eighth inning and Mays, used only as a pinch hitter now, bats for the pitcher. He lines the second pitch into the leftfield stands, tying the game and Ruth's record. The crbwd goes crazy, but they are waiting for the next inning. The Dodgers go out in order in the ninth and sb do the first two Giants and then — what's this? — Mays pinch hits again. Another homer for Willie, who breaks Ruth's record and wins the pennant for the Giants? Impossible, you say? Against the rules? Maybe not if an experiment now being tried in the Chicago White Sox' spring training camp at Sarasota, Fla., works out. * * * The Sox announced Sunday they had been given permission to use the same pinch hitter twice in any game against American League opponents during 'eight games of the, grapefruit season. The other teams will have the same option. The only restrictions are that the batter to be used twice must be designated before the game starts and that he can't bat twice in the same inning. Eddie Stanky, White Sox manager, said, "Both basketball and football have changed their rules for the fans and we should do the same. Furthermore, this means the specialists can stay around longer and when expansion comes again we can get by with smaller player limits." In other spring training action Sunday, rookie Bill Sorell hit a home run giving Tom Haller's team a S-l victory over Mays' squad game of the year. Rich Rollins hit two homers and rookie Ron Clark hit another in » Minnesota Twins game. Gene Alley, Donn Clendenbn and Bob Oliver hits home runs in a Pittsburgh Pirate intra- team game. Berflie Allen's homer led coach Eddie Yost's team to a 32 victory over Coach Joe Pig- nstano's team in the Washington Senators' camp. The Boston Red Sox are waiting to see if infielder George Smith will be lost for a long period because of a knee injury suffered practicing a run-down play. New York Mets' Manager Wes Westrum said rookie Greg GOosen was pressing catcher Jerry GrOte for his job and the position is wide open. Mickey Mantle continued working out at first base in the New York Yankee camp and outfielder Bill Robinson, acquired from Atlanta in the trade for Clete Boyer, worked for 20 minutes in the batting cage. Sad Finish for Aaron Insists He's Not Jinxed By BEN FUNK MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - Doug Sanders came through with a solid 70 while Tommy Aaron could show only a sad smile for his efforts in the filial round of D6ral Open Golt Tournament Sunday. Sanders wound up with a nine- under-par 275 to win the $20,000 first prize mtd Aarbn shook his head in disbelief after a quadruple bogey on the ninth hole. "No," Aaron said, "I don't feel like I'm jinxed." But many others felt differently when disaster struck the amiable, 30-year-old Georgian just when a big dream — his first victory on the golf trail — seemed about to come true. A water hazard and an official penalty saddled Aaron with the monstrous quadruple bogey just as the title seemed in his grasp. I And Sanders came through the wreckage to take it away from him. Aaron had come close before. He had led several other tournaments and finished hot on the heels of the leaders. Bullet Joe Dies KANSAS CITY (AP) - Wilber (Bullet Joe) Rogan, 78, a former pitching star for the Kansas City Monarchs' baseball team, died Saturday. Rogan ended his 18-year career with the Negro American League club in 1937.
