SPORT SIGNALS ☆ ☆ * By Hal Brown Sports Editor, The Star Guaranteed Race Happenings With the opening of the Nebraska racing season today at Grand Island’s Fonner Park, there are certain things you can count on happening in the next seven months. Guaranteed to happen: —Tondi, who ranks second only in popularity to Bob Devaney in Nebraska, will lose his first couple of starts and members of his fan club will scream that he is being assigned too much weight. —Hunch bettors will fare Just as well the first two weeks as the Racing Form readers since many of the horses competing at Fonner have not been running since last fall. —Trainers and jockeys will be complaining of the cold during the first week at F'onner. These complaints will have changed to grumblings about the heat by the time the horses reach Lincoln. —You’ll run into at least one person per day who will claim he has talked to a Jockey and knows that Rip Tide is a sure winner in the sixth race. —A friend will send two dollars to the track with you to bet on Summer Sun in the seventh and by the time the seventh race is run you have exhausted your money supply plus your friend’s two dollars. Summer Sun will then win and return $15.40. —Out-of-town writers, officials and fans in Omaha for the College World Series will leave a bundle of money with the folks at Ak-Sar-Ben. —Business in small towns located near the race tracks will come to a standstill during that track’s racing dates. —Some disgruntled bettor w'ho has failed to pick a winner for five straight days will start rumors that the horses are being doped. —Yours truly will vow that he is going to the tracks only when it is his days for writing about the nags and will vow that he is not going to bet even on those days, then wind up buying a couple of tons of hay. —The state will get money not only through the betting windows but also through county court windows from bettors speeding to get to the track in time to bet the daily double. —Some self-righteous group will attack the sport for bringing disreputable characters to their town, but they won’t mention the amount of money these characters pay into the town’s economy. —The Racing Form will outsell the Wall Street Journal in Grand Island, Lincoln, Omaha, Columbus, Madison, Mitchell, and South Sioux City during the next seven months. 30 Scoring Performers May Liven Jumping Competition Second in a Series By DON FORSYTHE Prep Sports Writer With 30 performers who scored in last year’s state meet returning, there will be spirited competition in the Jumping events for Nebraska high school athletes this season. This year’s collection of pole vaulters is the most talented in Nebraska prep history. Heading the list is Omaha Benson’s Randy Reeves, who established a new state record of 13-4% as a sophomore last season. The Benson standout appears certain to crack the 14- foot barrier this year. In two indoor tests this season he has soared 13-4 and 13-914. This puts him in a class of h i s own, but there are perhaps a dozen others who will flirt with the 13-foot mark. Ogallala’s Rick Bush reached that plateau last year, but faltered in the state meet and could manage only a tie for fifth place in Class B. John Randolph of Kearney, Terry MedJo of Grand Island and Dave Hayen of Scottsbluff placed behind Reeves in the state meet last year. Dennis Schuyler of Grand Island didn’t score in the state meet, but soared 12-8%. Another Class A standout returning is Scottsbluff’s Rod Ehler (12-2) who has tradition going for him in that two Ehlers are already on the list of all-time bests. Tom Jobman of Gothenburg, Doug Anderson of Su* perior. Bill Morris of Cozad and Jim McCarty of Lexington are ithe Class B leaders returning. McCarty, who tied with Bush for fifth place, has already cleared 12-8% in indoor competition this season. Class A champion Jack Todd of Scottsbluff (6-3) and Class B champion Gerald Wadell of Aurora (6-1) head the high jump candidates. Todd faces stiff competition from McCook’s Ed Thomas, the 1964 runner-up. North Platte’s Dale Chase and Boys Town’s Dennis Tunks. Tunks cleared 6-3 in last week’s Omaha University indoor invitational. Some of the most interesting competition during the 1965 campaign should come in the broad Jump, where there are several proven 22- foot jumpers. Defending Class A champion Buddy McCrea of Omaha Tech has graduated, but the four Jumpers who placed behind him la the state meet are back. They are Rob Heimbuch of Grand Island, Randy Jones of Fairbury, Tom O’Hara of Benson and Mike Hammer of Fairbury. Others who are at the same level are Larry Carlson of Beatrice, Eddie Walker of Omaha Tech, Mike Sadaj of Bellevue and James Hunter of Omaha Central. Don Grubaugh of David City Aquinas, state runner-up for two years, heads the Class B broad jumpers. Dale Zikmund of Central City and Wes Province of Broken Bow arc other state meet scorers leturning.

Trades Bolster Phillies' Hopes '64 COLLAPSE FORGOTTEN 14th of Series ClearwM^r, Fla. —The last 12 days of the 1964 season were a frightful nightmare to the collapsing Philadelphia Phillies, and manager Gene Mauch doesn’t like to talk about them. When the club reported for spring training, he avoided the subject. ‘ We’re suing to o u r- selves in the best shape possible and go after ’em again,” Mauch told the players at a closed clubhouse meeting. ‘‘Except for Bo Belinsky, Ray Herbert and Dick Stuart, everyone was there,” Mauch told a newsman. “They know just as much about it as 1 do. “i don’t see how anything in baseball can have a lasting effect on anybody. What you did last year or what you didn’t do no longer counts. You’ve got to start all over again.” Mauch thinks the winter trades that brought Belinsky, Stuart and Herbert to the Phils will be a big help. “Belinsky should do everything Dennis Bennett did at least,” said Mauch. “Stuart and Herbert should be bonuses. We didn’t have to give up anything that would figure to make our ball club.” Although the Phils traded Bennett to Boston for Stuart and acquired Belinsky from Los Angeles Mauch considers it a Belinsky - for - Bennett transaction as far as his pitching is concerned. “Last year they dug up left­ handers out of Madagascar for us,” he said. “They all gave —WHO'S WHO IN BASEBALL— Mets' Vet Leading Big League's Elite New York (UPI)-Warren Spahn of the New York Mets stiU is the biggest “who” m the annual edition of “Who s Who In Baseball.” Next come Robin Roberts of the Baltimore Orioles, Hank Aaron of the M i 1 w a u k e e Mets—he could add another star he’d rather do without. You get an asterisk for leading a league in defeats, too. Roberts already has two of those whereas the only dubious mark on Spahn’s record to date is an asterisk for us fits. With Stuart and young Alex Johnson in there maybe we’ll even up things with the lefties. Johnson was having the same kind of year in triple A with Arkansas that Rickie Allen had the year before. “We have speed with Johnny Callison, who can do everything, Tony Taylor, Tony Gonzalez, Johnson and Allen. Our bench is strong. If Frank Thomas winds up on the bench, you know our club has to be better. We’re hoping the back“ troubles of Bobby Wine and Ruben Amaro are not too serious. We have Cookie Rojas who can play several positions. Allen led all the major leaguers with 41 errors as a rookie but hit .318, slammed 29 homers and had 91 RBI Amaro will be the No. 1 shortstop when he is healthy and Tony Taylor will play second. If the Amaro and Wine injuries both handicapped by arm trouble last year, figure to be starters. Jim Running and Chris Short, are the big men of the staff. Running won 19, including a perfect game, and Short won 17 while working overtime down the stretch. Jack Baldschun, Eddie Roe- prove serious, general man- j buck and possible left-handed ager John Quinn will try to i Morrle Steevens will do the deal for a shorstop. Callison in right is the solid man of the outfield. Johnson probably will be in left and Gonzalez in center. Clay Dalrymple and Gus Triandos will be the catchers. Art Mahaffey and Ray Culp, relief work. If the Phils are permanently scared by last year’s relapse, if doesn’t show. Definitely, they figure to be an important pennant factor again. If they don't make it, they’ll be up close. Grand Island—The Hanson stable entry of Tenni was assigned top weight for the Fonner Park Inaugural Handicap, the feature race on the opening Fonner card here Tuesday. Tenni will pack 116 pounds over the 5% furlongs for the $2,000 purse for three year olds. Stablemate Say Alibhai with an assigned weight of 124 pounds will be waiting in the wings if one of the eight in the field is scratched. Madam Doc will carry 115 pounds in the feature race while others entered are Gun Fight (112), Gowan F i s h i n (113), Star Fleet Fuzz (111), Run Lightly (111), Little Gap (14) and Kathy’s Kate (112). Today’s eight-race card with a 3 p.m. post time opens the 161-day racing circuit for Nebraska that will find the horses traveling from Grand Island to Ak Sar-Ben, Lincoln, Columbus, Madison and Atokad before the final race is run seven months from today. The March 30 opening is the earliest opening date in Nebraska racing history, an opening that has been threatened by snow almost daily. However, the snow is gone from the Fonner track, leaving it in a muddy condition. The only discomfort, however, likely will be felt by the horses and Jockeys. Bettors will have a glass- enclosed grandstand to hover in during the races and general manager A1 Swihart has set up heaters in the enclosure.

Griffith, the 27-year- o 1 d welterweight ruler from New York, was a solid U-5 favorite over ambitious, 24-year-old Jose Stable, the No. 1 contender from New York.

Griffith and Stable will open the show at 9:30 p.m., EST. If it goes the limit, the light heavyweights won’t go on until about 10:45 p.m., EST. Pastrano, making the third defense of the 175-pound division title, has been guaranteed $100,000, or 30 per cent of the receipts that go into the promotional pot. Griffith, in his 11th title fight, has been guaranteed $70,000 or 25 per cent of the total. Torres and Stable will collect $10,000 each.

Torres has won eight straight since then climaxed by his first round kayo of former middleweight champ Bobo Olson at the Garden last Nov. 27. Pastrano, handsome and unmarked after 13% years of pro battling, has a 63-12-8 record which includes fights with many heavyweights. He has scored 12 knockouts and been stopped once. That was on cuts by British heavyweight Brian London in the fifth round at London 6% years ago. “No one has ever floored me,” said Willie, “and I don’t think Torres can.
