6 - Friday, Mar. 13, 1959 Redlands Daily Facts O'Brien, World's Shot Put Record Holder At U. R. Sat. Hammer Throw Champ Also Enters Meet A substitution has been made in the lineup for the big four -way meet on the UR track tomorrow. Rafer Johnson, decathlon champion, wiU not compete. Replacing him in the Strider contingent is Parry O'Brien, who holds the world's record in the shot pu' a' 63 -". O'Brien established the world mark in 1956 at Los Angeles. He won the Olympic wTeath in 1952 and 1955. On the latter occasion, he became the first 60-plus winner at .Melbourne with a heave of 6011", beating the old mark by more than a yard. (O'Brien still has a long way to go to match the record set by- American Ralph Rose in the 1912 games at Stockholm. Rose threw »0'5V. What's the catch? Rose was ambidextrous, and the score is an addition of right-and left-hand tosses.) O'Brien was to leave for Germany last night, but a last-minute cancellation affords Redlands track enthusiasts the opportunity of seeing him in action. Harold Connolly, world record holder in the hammer throw with a toss of 225'4" at Bakersfield last year, is also expected. He won the USA-USSR dual meet last year with a distance of 220'84". Connolly put the 1956 Olympic championship unJer his belt with a distance of 207'3V. the first time an American had won the Olympic hammer throw since F.D. Tootell turned the trick in the 1924 games. First 200-Plus To$s«r On that occasion, Connolly beat the previous Olympic mark by ten feet, making him the first 100- plus tosser of the games. Another threat takes the form of miler Jerome Walters, who has clocked 4:01.7. He is rapidly rounding into shape and will be ready to go tomorrow. Also on tap are a couple of javelin throwers. Steve Seymour threw 251 "1" last year and Jon Jamison has marked 242'2" this year. Although these top performers will probably clean out the competition, close contests are expected in many other events. UCLA and San Diego State have taiex- ed full rosters. Sharp actioiP^HBte be seen in the sprint and relays. Bulldog bead track coach Ted Runner said yesterday, •'We're really a little out of our depth in this one. but we are going to push hard just the same. No matter what the point score says. Redlands will make a respectable showing." A large turnout is expected for one of the greatest thinclad aggregations ever to grace the UR oval. Xo admission will be charged. Field events are scheduled for 1:30 p.m. The hammer throw contest will be at 1 p.m. sharp. Country Club Golf Team Wins Thursday League Braves Trying To Work Trade With Dodgers United Press International Trade talk broke out in the big league training camps today when the Los Angeles Dodgers disclosed leccnt negotiations with the Milwaukee Braves and the Baltimore Orioles revealed they want to dispose of pitcher Billy Loes. General Manager E. J. iBuzzie) Bavasi of the Dodgers said he has been approached by several Braves' officials who are searching desperately for a replacement for second-baseman Red Schoendienst.

"I will make a deal, however, provided it's one we can't turn down. If we can get two players who will play for us every day or one daily player and a pitcher who can go every fourth day, we are willing to deal." The Braves, who know Schoendienst won't be available and suspect that Mel Roach, original No. 1 candidate for the job, won't be either, now rate Chuck Cottier, a 23-year-old rookie on the Louisville roster, as their best prospect. Cottier has starred defens- jively in the Braves' early exhibition games and has collected five hits in 13 times at'Sat.

"I'm ready to play nine innings [any time," says Snider. The Duke, who started out in three of the Dodgers' first four games and managed to play at least a couple of innings in all four, said he was far ahead of last year when his injured left knee i was the No. 1 Dodger sore spot. Last year Snider didn't make an appearance in the spring training exhibition games until the Los Angeles team had played 16 exhibition contests.

Close Games Foreseen In NCAA Playoff United Press International Streaking Kansas State, the nation's top-ranked team, is expected, to clobber the "losingest" team in the field for its 21st [straight win but the odds-makers forecast mighty close competition in almost all other games tonight when regional play opens in the NCAA* major college basketball tourney. Competition is slated at four sites as Navy's surprising team leads seven first-round winners into conflict along with nine league champions' who had first- round byes. Here's the way the odds-makers see Friday games: At Charlotte, N.C. Navy '17 -51 7 points over Boston Univ. '19 -61. West Virginia '26-4) 3 points over St. Joseph's 'Pa.) '23-3). At Evanston, III.

It exceeded the $600,000 guar antce given by the multi-million aire Zeckendorf family to Rosen sohn last Tuesday for his decision to stage the Floyd Patterson- Ingemar Johansson heavyweight title fight at Yankee Stadium. June 23. A gross gate of $1,000,000 for the Moore-Robinson fight would provide a net gate of about $850.000 —after federal and state taxes and fees of ring officials are taken lout. And it's from the net gate that fighters always are paid. Rosensohn guaranteed 60 per cent of the net gate to Archie and Sugar Ray. to be divided as they saw fit. Robinson said he and Moore had agreed to split 30-30. [Thus, each would receive about $255,000. if their total 60 per cent was $510,000. In addition they would split 60 per cent of other net receipts from television and radio, although Sugar Ray would have a separate deal for the movie rights. That's why many experts ex- |pect the 1959 champion to come out of the Lawrence regional where Kansas State and national scoring champion Oscar Robertson of Cincinnati hold the spotlight.

Yama Bahama 6-5 Favorite NEW YORK < UPD—Yama Bahama became a slight 6-5 favorite today to beat Wilf Greaves Canadian middleweight champion, in their TV fight at Madison Square Garden tonight. Previously Greaves had been a short choice over West Indian Yama for their 10-rounder. which will be televised and broadcast nationally by NBC. Both fighters are aspirants to the British Empire crown. Greaves, formerly of Edmonton, Alberta, now lives at Windsor, Ontario. Y'ama hails from the island of Bimini. where he worked as a fishing guide. Each had a winning string broken in his last bout and is determined to start i a new victory skein. By OSCAR FRALEY United Press International NEW YORK (UPD-This has to do with what a difference four years makes in international athletics—and the question of what happens in four more. Back in 1952 at its private village deep in Finland's pine forests on the outskirts of Helsinki, the Russian Olympic team had a mammoth score board. There was consternation when the United States shot to the top x>f the board. So the Russians changed their scoring system. The next day, even under the new system, the United States again went to the top of the Soviet scoreboard in the 'unofficial" race for the "mythical" team TERRIER TV SERVICE We service all makes of Television Day and Night Service HOUSE CALLS - ONLY 53.50 Budget Terms On All Repairs SIB Orange Dial PY 3-2743 championship in the international contests. So the following day the Russians tore down the offending board. Four years later, at Melbourne, the Russians went to the top of the scoreboard—and they stayed there. Our officials tried to work the same mathematical magic which the Russians had attempted at Helsinki. Russians Too Strong "I used seven different systems but no matter what I tried the Russians still came out on top," confessed one member of the U.S. Olympic delegation which, officially, decries the award of an unofficial team title. "They were just too strong in the .places, even though we took our share of gold medals." So. for the first time. the'Rus sians won the scorned but highly coveted if mythical team championship at the last Olympic games. The Russians made athletic hay of this in the world wide cold war which the Soviet wages on all fronts. It was an international black eye to America's muscular prowess. "We are highly aware of this.' admits one U. S. official, "and we are more concerned than ever as we get closer to the 1960 games | at Rome. The Russians haven't been standing, still. They want to really bury us this time. Which means that we must work harder than ever before." U. S. Needs Money One of the strategic devices to be employed is to gather the members of various teams together earlier than usual and put them through a rigid training program which will send our athletes to the games better prepared than they ever have been before. There is. at the moment, just one difficulty. In the wealthiest nation in the world it is, quite surprisingly, money. To furnish our competitors in Pan-American Games, July 27- Aug. 7, as well as to gather the competitive clans in an early training for the Rome spectacular, the U. S.- Olympic Committee needs $1,500,000. "This money has to be raised by public subscription." an official explains. "The Russians can be state supported, but we have to live up strictly to the amateur code. This means no government subsidy." Just in case you're interested, donations can be sent to: U. S. Olympic Committee, Biltmore Hotel, New York. Because up to now we "haven't even scratched the surface."
