Evening, May 24, 1957. Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Eleven Harvey, Trexler, Maple In State Track Finals Monon, Peru and Logan Represented Three Area Athletes to Compete for IHSAA Track Glory in Showdown Saturday at In- dianapoJis Tech Track. A miler, a pole vaulter and a sprinter from Monon, Peru and Logansport high schools will join '215 certified athletes Saturday in quest o£ IHSAA state track glory at the Arsenal Technical high ichool field. This capable trio includes George i Harvey, Monon's sensational dis-' tance runner; Terry Trexler, Peru's steady pole vaulter; andj sprinter Mike Maple, of Logansport, one of the few freshmen able to qualify for the state finals. Harvey earned his trip to Indianapolis with a convincing mile victory at the Mishawaka regional. Trexler and Maple came through the bulky field of competitors at Fort Wayne last week. On the basis of their regional performances, Harvey appears to rate the best chance of the three to earn a blue ribbon, despite a star-studded field of distance aces. The little White county athlete topped all sectional mile champ- Ions with his 4:31.9 at Mishawaka, only two seconds off the record he established in the White county meet a month ago. Redding Has Best Dave Redding, of Fort Wayne South Side, is credited with the best time o£ the season at 4:24.8, but was clocked in 4:32.1 winning Major League Standings National League W. L. Pet.

The southern champ- Ion, Don Keiser, of Seymour, qualified at 11 feet 6 inches. Maple will represent the up-and- eoming Loganberry track squad at the state finals. The LHS freshman placed fourth in the 100 yard dash at Fort Wayne, won by Pete Lundell of North Side. The dashes are loaded with out- itanding athletes, headed by Richmon's Bill Satterfield and Lloyd Robbs, of Torre Haute Wiley, both of whom have covered the century in less than 10 seconds. Heat drawings, announced by the IHSAA office, placed Maple in the second trial along with Satterfield, Ray Carter of Tech and Lundell.

Since getting his big chance, Gross has posted 'four straight victories for the front-running Redlegs, including a 6-2 decision over the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday night that enabled Cincinnati to open a two-game lead over the idle Milwaukee Braves. What's the story behind the sudden success of a pitcher who was farmed out to Havana last year "for experience," and now has allowed only 24 hits and seven earned runs in his last four games'? According to Ta!>betts, Gross, with the help of coach Tom Ferrick, has "learned to throw a change-up pitch almost overnight. "The story of every unsuccessful pitcher is the story of one extra pitch he needed to win," explained Tebbetts. "Many were made by finding it. For instance, Carl Hubbell with his screwball, EIroy Face with his forkball, and Bob Friend and Hal Jeffcoat with their sliders." This change-up pitch could make Gross," the articulate Cincinnati manager added hopefully. In Thursday night's game—the only scheduled major league contest — manager Fred Hutchinson shook up the slumping Cardinals by switching third baseman Key Boyer to center field, moving shortstop Eddie Kasko to third, and using Eddie Miksis in right field. But with Gross tossing that change-up pitch, the Cardinals [poked helpless in suffering their fifth straight defeat. Gross allowed only three hits until the ninth when he gave up singles to Don Blasingame, Stan Musial and FRESHMAN SPRINTER QUALIFIES Cubs Trade 2 Pitchers CHICAGO (UP)— The Chicago Cubs gave up two pitchers, Vito Valentinetti and Jackie Collum, to the Brooklyn Dodgers Thursday in return for pitcher Don Elston and cash. The Dodgers, who did not reveal the payment of any money, said that two other players, unidentified, also were involved in .the deal. One would be a Cubs player to be optioned to a Dodger farm team, probably Montreal, and the other a Pacific Coast League outfielder who would com'e to the Dodgers later in the season. The Cubs said Vice President John Holland had not mentioned any other players in his announcement of the deal and that the club would make no further announcement "today," thus indicating that verification of the two added players might come later. Elston previously hurled for the Cubs'- Los Angeles farm team and was traded to the Dodgers in 1955. He has pitched only one inning for the Dodgers this year and had a 7-8 record tor St. Paul in the American Association last season. Trading Oollum, who was ob- obtained from the St. Louis Cardi- j nals in a mid-winter deal, left the Mike Maple will represent Logansport high school at the state track finals Saturday ut Tech field, Indianapolis. The freshman sprinter qualified for the championship slrow in sectional and regional 100-yard dash eliminations. (Pharos-Tribune Photo-Engraving.)

Stobbs was Washington's outstanding pitcher last year withi 18 victories but he Has a 0-8 record now and has lost 13 games in a TOW dating back to last season. Despite his current record, however, he still is considered a fine pitcher. "I just can't put my finger on the trouble," he said. "I know my curve ball hasn't been as good as last year but my fast ball and slider have been every bit as good." Since the season started and the defeats began mounting up, the 27-year-old Stobbs has been getting mountains-of mail from people telling him what he is doing wrong. "The folks who write mean well but none of them came up with the solution yet," said the Senator '.southpaw. "I'm still going around looking for that famous worm that's always supposed to turn."

Weather May Stymie 500-Mile Qualifiers INDIANAPOLIS (UP)—Driversj attempt to qualify, will get first and mechanics cast anxious crack at the 24 positions still open. glances skyward today amid indications the weatherman may be their top foe again in weekend qualifications for next Thursday's 500-mile auto race. The forecast of scattered showers was virtually a carbon copy of last week when only nine drivers beat the clock and the rain to nail down spots in the 41st annual Memorial Day classic. The trials were scheduled to end at 6 p.m. CDT Sunday. However, Speedway owner Tony Hulman assured car owners and drivers "everybody will get a chance," and that qualifications will be extended to Monday—Tuesday, if necessary—to assure a full field of S'3 starters. 22 Have Priority Twenty-two roadsters, which lined up along the pit wall last Saturday and Sunday in a vain Read the Classified Ads' Rosburg Holds One Stroke Advantage In Kansas City Open KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UP)—Bob Rosburg, San Francisco professional regarded as one of golf's putting artists, held a one stroke edge today as the second round started in the $22,000 Kansas City Open. The 30-y e a r-old Californian, known for his baseball grip, mastered the Hillcrest Country Club's fast, rolling greens for a 5 under par 67 in Thursday's opening round. Former U.S. Open champion Lloyd .Mangrum, Apple Valley, Calif., was just a stroke .off Rosburg's performance while Ed Furgo:, St. Andrew, 111., had a 70. Defending champion Bob WininR- er, Odessa, Tex., also cut two slrokes off Hillcre.st's par-72 as did ,A1 Bcsselmk, Grossingers, N.Y.; Billy Maxwell, Odessa, Tex.; Po', Schwab, Dayton; Tom Nieporte. Cincinnati and Gary Player, Johannesburg, South Africa. Masters champion Doug Ford, Maliopac, N.Y., th e favorite, and former U.S. Open champion Jack Fleck, Rochester, Minn., were deadlocked with 72's with 11 other golfers. About 20 additional cars that were not ready to make their four- lap, 10-mile sprints must line up behind them. National driving king Jimmy Bryan, Phoenix, Ariz., will be first oft from the starting line. Bryan was warming up last Saturday when showers closed the racing plant. Other speedy chauffeurs raring to go include Paul Russo and Tony Bettenhausen in the powerful Novis, Sam Hanks, former "500" champ Johnnie Parsons, Jim and Dick Rathmann, Andy Linden, Johnny Thomson, and Don Freeland. Novi To The Rear Bettenhausen's Novi must go to the rear of the waiting line since it was not pushed onto the starting apron last weekend. Russo's racer will be among the first few to get a crack at the records of 146.058 and 145.596 miles an hour set by Pat Flaherty last year. Pat O'Connor nailed down the pole position last Saturday. H3 averaged 143.948 mph, just an eyelash faster than rookie Eddio Sachs, to be the fastest first-day qualifier. Linden, Dick Rathmann, Gens Hartley, and Bob Christie eacli have one strike against them. All four tried to qualify last Saturday but wer e fagged off the course by their own crews for insufficient speeds. A driver gets three chances, if necessary, to complete a 10-mile trial. Should the entire field be com- pleled Saturday, any qualifying runs Sunday will be for "bumping" purposes, with the slowost cars leaving the line-up. Rookie Elmer George is "low man" now with an average of 140.729. Meanwhile, activity at Iho Speedway was limited again Thursday because of intermittent showers. However, when the track was opened for a little more than an hour liite in the day, 16 drivers go.t in practice whirls around the 2'A-mile course. Angeles, Daywnlt, Speedway, Ind., each was clocked at speeds of more than 143 milei an hour. Rodger Ward, Los Calif., and Jimmy RHIUfUDfR BRINGS YOU THE LOOK YOU LIKE IN PALM BEACH SLACKS!
