OTTAWA HERALD Monday, April 20, 1959 Alley Leads Jayhawkers To Drake Relays By SKIPPER PATRICK LAWRENCE, Kan. (AF)- Bfll Alley of Kansas, the hottest javelin thrower today, will lead a powerful contingent of Jayhawks fnto the Drake Relays this week end. Coach Bill Easton pointed out that Alley, a 21? - pound junior transfer from Syracuse (NY) University, had been ill with flu all week and hadn't had a workout until his preliminary throws in the 34th Kansas Relays Saturday. "There was no demand on Alley," Easton said. "He didn't throw af all in the finals." Alley's fourth preliminary throw of 2S4-9 beat the old KU Relays record of 232-8% by about 22 feet and the husky from Short Hills, N. J,, quit for the day. Kansas won four baton races Saturday and the Jayhawks will be favored to win one or more at Drake, depending on how Easton "and the kids" decide how to run them. The, Jayhawks were first in the four-mile relay, anchored by Clif Cushman a yard ahead of Colorado's Mike Peake in 17:30.5; the sprint medley, 3:21.4; the 440-yard reiay, 41 seconds, and the two- mile relay, 7:37.6. The Jayhawks also had individual champions in Charlie Tidwell and Ernie Shelby. Tidwell won the 100-yard dash in 9.9 seconds, ran on two winning relays teams |£[ and was voted the outstanding} athlete of the meet. Shelby captured the broad jump Friday. Four meet records altered despite the fact the Kansas track was in poor condition after an all- day rain Friday and a brief showers around noon Saturday. Two veteran Houston stars, John Macy and Jack Smyth, came up with new marks. Macy lowered the two-mile record to 8:59.2, and Smyth won his third straight hop-step-jump at 50-1 Dick Howard of Now Mexico won the AAU 400-meter hurdles in 50.4 seconds. Phil Mulkey of the Memphis (Tenn.), Olympic Club, won the decathlon for the third time in four years. Ho had 6,302 points. Coffeyvttle Junior College won two relays in the junior college Httr,i>urgu division and Archie San Roman! of Wichita East ran the fastest high school mile in Kansas history 4:17.4, breaking his own record.

G3 4 1 LOS ANOELES (AD-A dark, muscular fellow in his lute thirties was sitting blank-faced on a trunk in the ncnrly empty dressing roorr when somebody walked up and asked: "Hey—you p!ay on this team?" "It doesn't look like it," said Carl Furillo, one of the ablest outfielders the Dodgers ever had. "You put up a beef yet because they haven't been playing you?" "Not yet," he said. "But it won't be long." This season, for the first time n a decade cr so, Furillo has not een a regular starter. He was on ie bench agaJn Sunday when Los ngeles beat Chicago 8-3 with a ouple of come-latelys in the out eld. "I can't take a layoff like this,' c said. "ItM ruin me.

Schmanke tied for first in the pole vault with Mike Reynolds, all-around athlete from Bonner Springs, a class A school. The weight was 12-6 s /4. Bella, .shunted to the A's as part of the deal that brought Murry Dickson to Yankee Stadium last fall, came through with a big hit Sunday in Cleveland. The rookie's pinch double with the bases loaded knocked the Indians out of the unbeaten class and gave Kansas City a 4-3 victory. Herb Score had pitched a ter Httc game for eight innings. The A's had been shut out with only wo hits and trailed 2-0. Even Bill Tuttle's leadoff home run didn't seem too serious. However singles by Hector Lopez and Roger Marls a walk to Hal Smith and Bella': double—driving in three runs- ended the Tribe's streak at six straight. Baltimore staged a wild rally nd 4-2 behind Russ Kemmerer. Cold weather postponed the Detroit at Chicago game. Frank Maisonc, a boy from New fork's Bronx who wound up with Boston, came through with a 12th nning home run off Ryne Duren or a 5-4 Red Sox decision over he Yankees. Even in defeat, the Cleveland club managed to come up with a homer. Woody Held smashed his ifth of the year in the bottom of the ninth. Ray Herbert, mak ng his first start went all the way for the A's. Enos Slaughter, soon to be 43 lied the score for the Yanks with a ninth inning homer at Fenway Park. The Red Sox, held to two bits after the third inning, got the big one when Malzone knocke< Duren's 1-0 pitch into the left field screen in the 12th. Gene Stephens hit a two-run homer off Johnny Kucks and Norm Siebern of the Yanks ham scoring six runs in the sevent! for an opening 7-5 victory ove Washington but the Senators came back to take the rain-delayed sec he left field screen in the first 'or another homer. The first game at Baltimore was i dilly. The tie-breaking run in he big seventh came when Dick Hyde hit Chico Carrasquel square- y on the top of the head with a pitch with the bases loaded.
