Cimoli, Mocn Trade Looks Better Daily VERO BEACH. Ha. <UPI>-The Gino Cimoli for Wally Moon trade looks better for the Dodgers with each passing day. Los Angeles executives are quick to point out. Moon, a lifetime 231 hitter who slumped to .238 with the St. Louis Cardinals last season, has been the sensation of the Dodgers' spring camp. He leads the regulars in hitting with a .500 average, getting six hits in 12 times at bat, and is tied for the lead in runs scored with five. He has reached base in each ol the six games he has played. "The bell for the start of the season has yet to ring," commented General Manager Buzzie Bavasi. "but I would make the same deal tomorrow. So far. Moon has been one of our best players." The Dodgers gambled that Moon would regain his stride and the gamble appears to be paying off. Cimoli, meanwhile, has failed to draw any rave notices from the Cardinals. Manager Walter Alston has used Moon in left field exclusively and that is where Moon figures to play, when the Dodgers open the season against the Cubs at Chicago April 10. mis, scon MOTORS, TRAILERS, WATER SKIS, MARINE EQUIPMENT Lowest Print in Redlands HERMAN'S MARINE 320 E.

The Bulldogs take on Pasadena tomorrow at 3 p.m. on the UR diamond. Bassey, Moore Battle In LA. LOS ANGELES (UPI) - Explosive Hogan (Kid) Bassey of Nigeria tonight makes his second defense of the featherweight championship against top-rated | challenger Davey Moore of Springfield Ohio, in a 15-round nationally televised bout that could be one of the best fights of the year. The fight ends a year and a half campaign by Moore to get into the same ring with Bassey and the challenger was confident that he will emerge from the bout in Olympic Auditorium the new champion. Interest in the championship clash mounted in the past week with the demand for tickets reaching a peak the fina! three days, indicating a near-capacity throng of around 11.000 and gate somewhere in the vicinity of $100,000. The fight is blacked out in southern California for a radius of 250 miles from Los Angeles Although wagering was brisk on the bout, it remained at 6-5 and take your choice on even money in man-to-man action. The fight took on a grudge aspect last Sunday when Moore failed to appear at a public work out in Olympic Auditorium. Bassey. who showed up. took Moore's failure as a personal affront and vowed he would give his opinion of the challenger's lack of cour tesy in the ring tonight. MATTHEWS, ORTIZ SIGN PHILADELPHIA (UPI) — Len Matthews of Philadelphia has signed to meet Carlos Ortiz of New York in a 10-round light' weight bout here April 13. Matthews, with a 16-1-1 record, has never met a fighter with Ortiz' reputation. Ortiz, a Puerto Rican, has won 20, lost two and drew one. 730 Hay burners Eligible For Kentucky Derby May 2 By OSCAR FRALEY United Press International NEW YORK (UPIi-A total of 130 hayburners are eligible today for the May 2 running of the Kentucky Derby and. if the nomenclature class will come to order, Fearless Fraley will prove that only a bare handful of these nags have a galloping ghost of a chance. To open the session, let it be said that it long has been a theory in this corner that names play a great part in the making of a champion. This has been contested many times. But I still have never heard of; anybody named Oscar, Ethelburt or Algernon winning the heavyweight championship of the world, or even the light heavyweight championship of the world. Classy Handle Wins Getting back to the derby, the top horse opera of the year, it usually is a colt with a classy handle which wins this one, too. As example, past winners include such 3S Count Fleet, Exterminator, War Admiral, Assault, Count Turf and Iron Liege. Native Dancer was a great horse with a swishy name so he ran second in this one to the prophetically- named Dark Star. There have been some real daisies among the names of those who went postward in the derby and failed miserably. How could they expect them to run with such <ags? Like, say: Bankrupt, who did just that to his backers: Cherry Pie. a juicy 20th: Dogpatch, who was: Frogtown, should have been a jumper: In mcmo- riam, hote tote tickets ought to have been edged in black; Vagabond, a real bum: One Dime, what he was worth, and Watermelon, who was. Other Poor Names I don't know whether some of these good-sounding colts can run a lick, but this comer has to go along with such uninhibited colts this time «s Count Mighty, First Landing, Great One, Mighty Sir and Navy King. As for Tomy Lee, I don't think he's got a Chinaman's chance. It's another case of "no tickee, no laundry." Here are some others you can have when they blow boots and saddles for the rose run: Am Away—His position at the) finish. Another Sin—If you put money| on him. Audience—Where he'll wind up. Call the Witness—Another crime. Die Hard—Which his backers will. Don't Alibi — You've been warned. Dotted Swiss—Materially, cheese. Dunce—If 'you do) bet. Dust Jacket—Sure to wear one. Dodgers, Red Sox Playing Sensationally United Press International There'll be a pair of fine pennant races after all -this year if the current Grapefruit League standings are "for real." Everybody seems to be conceding the races to the New York Yankees and the Milwaukee Braves but both defending cham pions are under .500 today while the Boston Red Sox and Los An geles Dodgers are playing sensa tional ball. The Red Sox defeated the San Francisco Giants, 6-1, at Scottsdale, Ariz., Tuesday to raise their spring record to 8-1. The Balti more Orioles are the only other American League team over .500 The Yankees have lost five of nine games and the Chicago White Sox. rated the AL's other chief contender, are last with a 3-4 mark. The Dodgers, idled by rain Tuesday along with most of the other teams training in Florida, have a 5-2 record that is by far the best in the National League The Braves stand only 3-5 and the Pittsburgh Pirates, who finished second last season are 5-6. Frank Sullivan, as likely an opening-day pitcher as you'll find from the Grand Canyon to the Florida Keys, went six fine innings Tuesday as the Red Sox kept up their fast spring pace. Sullivan yielded four hits but struck out six and Herb Moford who held the Giants hitless the rest of the way, fanned four more. • Ted Lepcio cracked the first homer of the spring at Scottsdale, thereby earning a collection of 16 prizes from local merchants and pacing the nine-hit Red Sox attack. Pumpsie Green. Gary Geiger and Jackie Jensen also de livered key blows in the Boston- assault. The Indians overcame three Chicago homers to whip the Cubs, 10-5, at Mesa, Ariz. Ernie Banks, Lee Walls and Bobby Thomson homered for the Cubs but the In dians broke a 5-5 tie in the eighth when a double by Jim Bolger, singles by Ron Graber and Gene Leek and Woody Held's double produced an 8-5 lead. Dick Drott, in his first appearance for the Cubs since getting out of the Army, walked eight batters, made two wild pitches and committed an error in three .innings. Chuck Stobbs and Dick Hyde spaced out II hits as the Senators topped the Pirates. 4-1, at Ft. Myers, Fla. The Senators scored al! their runs off rookie Benny Daniels, who went the first six innings for Pittsburgh. Cincinnati vs. St. Louis at St Petersburg, New York vs. Philadelphia at Clearwater. Kansas City vs. Milwaukee at Bradenton and Detroit vs. Los Angeles at Sarasota were rained out. Joe Louis Weds Wife No. 3 IftS ANGELES 'UPI» - Joe Louis. 45-year-old former heavyweight champion, has taken Mrs. Martha Jefferson, a Los Angeles attorney, for his third wife. The boxing great and .Mrs. Jefferson were married last Wednesday at Wintcrhaven. Calif., and returned here without revealing the marriage until Tuesday. Mrs. Jefferson is the former wife of Bernard Jefferson, a prominent Negro attorney with whom she still conducts a partnership law practice. Louis, the father of a son and a daughter by his first marriage to Marva Trotter, also was wed to Rose Morgan. He was twice married to Miss Trotter, both mar tiages ending in divorce. Colorado River Trout Stocking Next Week A program of spring and fall stocking of catchable-size rainbow trout in -the Needles area of the Colorado River wilt be initiated next week by the Department of Fish and Game. The fish will be planted at various points along the river from Needles upstream to the Boy Scout Camp, a distance of 7 or 8 miles. Present plans call for restocking trout into the Needles section of the river four times a year. Next week's plant is to be repeated on approximately May 1, October 1 and November 1. Formerly choked by shifting sandbars, the Needles section of the Colorado has now been chan­ nelized by dredging. This clearing of the river and an abundance of small threadfin shad to serve as trout food, have apparently con verted that part of the river into suitable trout habitat. The experimental stocking of 6,600 marked 8-inch rainbows in the river above Needles last October 31 produced excellent results. So] far more than half of those trout have been caught, and they have grown approximately an inch a month. The fish doubled their weight in just two months by feeding heavily on small threadfin shad. One 10-inch trout checked by the DFG contained 40 shad. Trout for the experimental stocking were purchased by the County of San Bernardino. Subsequent trout plants for the Colo- 1 rado will come from existing production at the DFG's Mojave River hatchery near Victorville. SPOT PLAYERS I' the Los Angeles Dodgers are going to move from seventh place to their accustomed pennant-contending status, the pitchers are going to have to do it. Left to right are Stan Williams, Bob Giallombardo, Sandy Koufax, Johnny Podres and Don Drysdale. Bradley Only Seeded Team Still Alive NEW YORK (UPIl - The Na tional Invitation Basketball Tour nament, true to its upset-happy tradition, headed today for a surprise with Bradley the only seeded team still "alive" and Providence the merriest madcaps of them all. "How the heck did we do it? I don't know," shouted Coach Joe Mullaney of Providence in the wild jubilation following the Friars' double-overtime, 75-72 upset of third-seeded St. Louis Tuesday night. ~ A crowd of 14,269 at Madison Square Garden roared at the Friar triumph and then shuffled their feet uneasily through the second game as New York University drubbed fourth-seeded Oklahoma City, 63-48, in the most lopsided game in this year's tourney. Providence earned the right to meet St. John's i which previously | ousted third-seeded St. Bonaven- turei in one semi-final Thursday night while NYU qualified for a tussle with top-seeded Bradley. Providence seemed beaten at least twice by St. Louis, a team which boasted a two-inch-per-man height advantage and one of the nation's top "big" men in 6-8 Bob Ferry. The Billikcns took an 18-9 early lead only to have Providence tie it at 18-18. St. Louis led, 38-30. early in the second half but the Friars came back again. Len Wilkens' one-hander with 46 seconds left gave Providence a 61-61 tie in regular time. Ferry's tap-in earned St. Louis a 65-65 tie after the first, overtime. Providence held a 71-70 lead with 40 seconds left in the second overtime when Jim Swartz' two free throws made it 73-70. Ferry's hook cut it to 73-72 but two free throws by John Egan clinched it. Oklahoma City gave a lacklus­ tre performance and Coach Abe Lemons commented. "I'm sorry for the boys, because they're really better than this." The Chiefs trailed by only 27-26 with one minute left in the first half as NYU played sloppy, ball, but then the Violets sank three quick points for a 30-26 halftime margin, opened the gap to 51-34 with 11 minutes, left and romped home. Cal Ramsey led the Violets with 20. Learn To Swim Campaign At Y.M.C.A. Next Week The annual Learn-to-Swim campaign, sponsored by the Redlands YMCA and the Facts, will be held during Easter vacation.

Celtics, Nats Tangle In Final Playoffs United Press International The Boston Celtics and Syra cuse Nationals tangle at Boston tonight in the opener of the Na tional Basketball Association's Eastern Division final round play offs. The Celtics are heavy favorites to win the best-of-seven scries and gain a berth in the champion ship round for the third straight year. Minneapolis and Detroit also clash tonight at Minneapolis in the windup of their opening series, with the winner meeting the St. Louis Hawks in the Western Division final. Boston, which won a record 52 games during the regular season captured the NBA championship in 1957 and lost it last year to the Hawks. The Nats, who won five of 12 games with Boston during the campaign, swept their opening se ries with the New York Knicker-j bockers. The Nats' "old. pros Dolph Schayes and George Yard-] ley, along with John Kerr, have alwavs meant trouble for the Celts. Syracuse Coach Paul Seymour figures Bill Russell, Boston's rebound king, is the key to Celtic success. If the Nats can contain the 6-10 Beantowner, Syracuse could gain an important edge in thp best-of-seven battle. Russell pooh-poohs his standout role. He believes teammate Tom my Heinsohn is the player whoj could best ruin Syracuse. The series moves to Syracuse Saturday and back to Boston Sunday. The fourth game will be at Syracuse March 25, the rest, if necessary*, will be held in Boston. March 28. Syracuse March 29, and Boston either March 31 or April 1. The Laker-Piston series is tied at l-l. Minneapolis won the first game last Saturday, 92-89, while Detroit bounced back Sunday to deadlock the best-of-three match with a 117-103 decision. GIANTS SIGN SOLTIS , NEW YORK (UPD —The New .ork Giants have signed rookie halfback Bob Sol lis of Minnesota to a 1959 contract. Soltis the Giants' 16th draft choice probably will get a crack al a defensive backfield position when the club opens training in August. Never swim alone. Avoid swimming in a heavy surf. Don't be a water show-off; It's more dangerous than -funny. Never dive into unknown water. ... and don't forget these other important YMCA water safety rules: Pick a safe place to swim. Keep within the limits of your swimming ability. After hard exercise, relax a bit before you hit the water. Always race toward the shore or parallel to it, never away from shore. If you can't swim, stay out of small boats. Don't take a sailboat out unless you're a good swimmer and understand sailing. Avoid swimming during electrical storms. When attempting a rescue, stay out of the water if at all possible. Try to reach the victim with a pole, rope, clothing or something buoyant And most important of all, if you're in trouble in the water, force yourself to keep calm. Cramps don't cause drowning-panic is the danger. Remember that comparatively small objects will support you if you'll just take advantage of your body's natural buoyancy. So happy paddling!

(UPIl-Cali- fornia's early arrival at the scene of battle today reminded fans that the Golden Bears are in the NCAA basketball finals this week end too, and don't in the least consider it a neighborhood party among Cincinnati, West Virginia and hometown Louisville. Ohio Valley fans know all about the other three teams, but the Bears who came over the mountains came as strangers to this vicinity. Coach Pete Newell and his team were due to arrive in time to work out this afternoon at Freedom Hall, scene of the tournament play Friday night'when California meets Cincinnati ar.d Louisville tangles with West Virginia in the semi-finals. California showed up for the NCAA finals bearing a 14-game winning streak, a 23-4 season record, the Pacific Coast Conference's last basketball title before it disbands, and the nation's best defensive record. No Hot-Shots Newell's team may lack hotshots, but it has some good basketball players. Guard Denny Fitzpatrick, termed by Newell the "finest perimeter shooter I've ever coached," averages 13.4 points per game, hitting at a 45.5 per cent clip, mostly on 20 to 30 foot jumpers. Center Darrell Imhoff, at 6-10 the second tallest man in the tournament behind Louisville's 6-11 Fred' Sawyer, averages about U points per game, but is so.tough defensively that part of the Bear strategy is to force opposing'shoot- ers into the pivot area where Imhoff can deal with them. The key man, however, is senior guard and captiin Al Buch, a defensive rock who'll probably draw the job of shadowing Cincinnati's •Big O." The Pacific Coast Conference hasn't won an NCAA title since Stanford did it behind Jim Pollard in 1942, but such fine teams as San Francisco's two-time wnners and Seattle's Elgin Baylor-sparked runners-up of a year ago have served to remind that the Far West still piays good basketball. Newell said, "unfortunately, we have scouted Cincinnati and haven't quite gotten the normal color back into our cheeks after watching Oscar pass off for 19 assists, against Kansas State." Not Really Scared But he didn't sound really scared. With Louisville already in a frenzy over its own Cardinals, arrival of another of the contestants did nothing to alleviate the scramble for tickets, which could be obtained only from private sources. Freedom Hall's 19.000 seats were a sellout for both nights long ago. The University of Louisville will hold a raffle to determine which of its students get to buy the 20 scats it has been allotted. Scalpers were reported to be asking, and getting, from S35 to $45 apiece for tickets good for both nights, or S100 and up for a set of four. U.R. Trio To Give Swimming Demonstration Three University of Redlands students will present a demonstration of synchronized swimming Monday at the annual State Conference of the California Association of Health, Physical Education and Recreation in Beverly Hills. The three Redlands students participating are Janet Glover of Burbank, Edean Stark of Honolulu. Hawaii, and Jane Watson of Esc'ondido. Dr. Nadine Cragg, professor of physical education at the university, will participate in a panel discussion during the conference and will speak on the subject "Problems and Planning of Aqua Icades." Dr. Cragg stated the swimming phase of the "sportsorama" in which the three UR students will appear, will be one of the high points of the conference 's entertainment Other activities of the program will be diving, life saving, scuba diving, and demonstrations of water polo. Participants will include high school students, children, university students and national athletic champions. SPORTS BRIEFS 'SKINS SIGN OSTROWSKI WASHINGTON (UPD — The Washington Redskins marked St Patrick's Day toda by anounc- ing the signing of their great Irish tackle, Chet O'Strowski. O'Strowski otherwise known as Ostrowski, played for Notre Dame and will be starting his sixth season with the Redskins. SCORES TRIPLE BOWIE, Md. lUPD-Jockey Howard Grant scored a triple at Bowie Tuesday to run his riding streak to 24 winners in 10 days. Grant's victories were aboard Lil Sis ($4,201 in the first race. Too Hasty ($8.00) in the second and Troubled Times ($4.60) in the sixth. ' Emhke, Former Athletics Hurler, Dies At 64 PHILADELPHIA (UPD — Former Philadelphia Athletics pitcher Howard. Emhke. whose record of 13 strikeouts as a surprise starter in the opening game of the 1929 World Series stood for 24 years, died suddenly in a hospital Tuesday-at the age of 64. Private funeral services will be held on Friday for the tall right­ hander, who was in the fading years of an outstanding. 15 year American League career when he made baseball history against the Chicago Cubs for Connie Mack's Athletics. Emhke had a season record of 7-2 and had appeared in only 55 innings when Mack named him to open the World Series in Chicago to the astonishment of the baseball world and even his teammates. During the season he had left the club presumably with a sore arm and didn't travel on one road trip. The big hurler was busy working out quietly at the old Phillies ball park in Philadelphia and scouting the Cub batters on his own. He pitched a masterful 3-1 win over the Cubs and his 'strikeout record stood until 1953 when Carl Erskine of the Brooklyn Dodgers fanned 14 New York Yankees. After Erskine broke his record. Emhke commented, "I'm glad it's over. I had it for a long, long while, but it actually was a strain after the first glamor wore off." Emhke retired from baseball in 1930 and operated his own canvas fabricating business with his wife. Marguerite, who is his only survivor.
