Redlands Daily Facts 8 - Tuesday, Feb, 4,19M Gaels take spotlight tonight By United Press International The St. Mary's Gaels get the spotlight tonight in a very meager schedule of collegiate basketball games on the Pacific Coast—and it's the last thing in the world St. Mary's wants this season. The Gaels, who have dropped 13 games, will be shooting for their second victory when (hey meet the University of Pacific at Stockton in a West Coast Athletic Conference game. The Tigers are in fourth place in the conference standings, with a record of one victory and one defeat. St. Mary's is 0-2. The only other games on tonight's schedule are Redlands at Portland University and San, Fernando Valley at Westmont. There was quite a bit of action involving West Coast teams! Monday night, but all of the games were no-conference en counters—more or less. The University of Californi; at Santa Barbara walloped San Jose State, 55-38 in a slow motion WCAC contest, but the Rancheros are a new team in the conference and their games do not count in the standings this season. It was the first game in three weeks for San Jose, which is tied for first place with USF in the WCAC race. The Spartans have won two and lost none, while the Dons are 3-0. The Southern California Trojans suffered their seventh straight defeat Monday night as they were downed 71-60 by Ari zona State University at Tempe ASU's Joe Caldwell led all scor ers with 27 points. The Santa Clara Broncs ran into more trouble on their swing through the East. They suffered their 11th defeat of the season in Pittsburgh by losing to Duquesne, 92-68. At Puget Sound, guard Charlie Williams poured in 30 points to lead the Seattle University Chieftains io a 105-88 victory over Memphis State. In other games, Chico State downed Cal Western of San Diego, 70-50; Sacramento State defeated Orange Stale, 76-65 in overtime, the Cal Aggies trimmed UC at Riverside, 85-68 and Arizona State College whipped Nevada Southern 9784, and Alaska defeated St. Martin's, 106-93.

Her-sister Christine, right, tied with Miss Saubert, center, for second place. First U.S. gold medal Wooden feels UCLA will be underdog team LOS ANGELES (UPI)—UCLA coach John Wooden, with a No. 1-ranked basketball team and 17 victories under his belt, is prepping his squad to play the underdog in this weekend's encounter with California. The reason? Because the two- game set is scheduled in Cal's Harmon Gym, a chamber of horrors to visiting coaches in which rabid students provide a fifth column for an already dangerous Bear basketball team. "Just playing up there is the reason I'm worried," Wooden confessed to the Southern California Basketball Writers Association Monday. "If we were playing Cal down here, I wouldn't be as worried. In fact, I would have to admit I think we would win." Hayes heads program LOS ANGELES (UPD Sprint king Bob Hayes heads a program which includes many of the greatest stars of track and field next Saturday in the Los Angeles Indoor Games. Terry McDermott wins 500-meter skating race By HENRY W. THORNBERRY UPI Sports Writer INNSBRUCK. Austria (UPI) —Terry McDermott, a 23-year- old barber from EssexviUe, Mich., using skates he borrowed from his coach, gave the victory-starved U.S. team its first gold medal of the Winter Olympics today when he won the men's 500-meter speed- skating race in an Olympic record of 40.1 seconds. Heavy favorite Evgeny Grishin of Russia, holder of the old mark of 40.2 seconds and many - time world champion, skidded slightly on the first turn and finished in a three- way tie for second place, in 40.6 seconds. McDermott's upset triumph touched off an explosion of joy in the camp of the American team. Until today the only medals won by the United States were one silver and one bronze, both by Jean Saubert of Ogdcn, Utah in women's skiing. McDermott's time, which stunned a capacity crowd in the Olympic ice stadium because the ice had been thought to be slow as a result of mild weather, eclipsed the mark that Grishin set in winning this event in 1956 and tied when he won it again in 1960 at Squaw Valley, Calif. "I did it on borrowed skates," the jubilant McDermott disclosed. "I broke my own skates in training in Colorado and Coach Leo Freisinger suggested I use his." Freisinger, of Los Angeles, hailed Terry for "skating a perfect race," and McDermott said, "I got into good form right at the start and held it." U.S. Had Fears After Miss Saubert's second 'place in the women's giant slalom Monday, the experts here were forecasting that the U.S. team would go without a Gold Medal for the rest of the games. Theat never has happened to the Yanks, their all-time low being in 1936 when the U.S. team won only one Gold Medal and three Bronze. McDermott ended American fears of a shutout with his slashing, driving race around the Olympic ice oval. When he zoomed across the finish he was mobbed by U.S. coaches and athletes, who smothered him in bear hugs. Even the Russians stopped to watch. risain, who win the 1500 meters in the 1956 games and thus was shooting today for his fourth Olympic Gold Medal, skidded on the first turn after covering the first 100 meters faster than any other skater. The time he lost gave McDermott his big chance. The 5-foot. 9-inch American came booming out from the starting line snd slashed down the first 100 meters in 10 sec onds flat. The time-conscious crowd went to its feet, roaring as the barber came whizzing down the home stretch, his arms swinging and his legs driving like steel pistons. The noise died to silence at the finish line and then a huge shout burst from the Austrian crowd as it realized McDermott had won. Meanwhile, Vladimir Melanin gave runaway leader Russia its seventh Gold Medal of the Win ter Olympic Games by winning the military-style biathlon skj event, and Germany swept both men and women's singles tobogganing. Scott Ethan Allen, 14, of Smoke Rise, N.J., remained in strong contention in men's figure skating by holding onto fourth place after three figures. Holds Lead Manfred Schnelldorfer of Germany continued to lead the figure skating although his lead over Karol Divin of Czechoslovakia was narrowed in the third figure. European champion Alain Calmat of France was third. ! Melanin took the biathlon on the basis of unofficial results by covering the 20-kilometer (about 12li miles) ski course in an Olympic record one hour, 20 minutes, 26.8 seconds. He scored a perfect 10 hits in shooting. The biathlon consists in a cross-country ski race during which each athlete stops to shoot at four rifle ranges, losing two minutes in time for each miss. Melanin's time eclipsed the Olympic mark of 1:33:21.6 set by Sweden's Klas Nestander in 1960, when the event was held for the first time. Olav Jordet of Sweden was second in 1:25:38.8. Alexander Privalov of Russia was third in 1:25:45.5, and his Bronze Medal for third place was the 17tb medal for the Soviet Union, far more than any other nation. Thomas Koehler won the men's tobogganing and Ortrun Enderlein the women's for Germany's first Gold Medals of the games. Germany scored a 1-2-3 sweep in the men's singles and missed a similar sweep only when Helene Thurner of Austria took third place in the women's event.

Giants sign three pitchers SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) The San Francisco Giants of the National League, who open spring training in 20 days, Monday announced the signing of three pitchers — including two former no-hit, no-run stars. Don Larsen is well known for his starring effort. He pitched a perfect game for the New York Yankees in the 1956 world series. The other two to sign were Gaylord Perry and Bob Bishop, a young righthander who hurled a no - hit, no - run game for Springfield on the opening day of the 1963 Eastern League season. Larscn. a bull pen specialist for the Giants last year, compiled a 7-7 record with a 3 .05 earned run average in 46 games. He had 44 strikeouts and 30 walks. Terms of his contract were not announced, but it was believed Larsen got a slight raise over the $20,000 he earned in 1963. Bishop had a 4-2 record and a 1.33 era for Springfield when he developed bone chips in bis right elbow. He was placed on the injured list and underwent an operation for removal of the chips last fall- Perry was a disappointment to Giant manager Alvin Dark last season, when he appeared in 31 games and had a 1-6 record. However, Perry has the equipment, and Dark is hopeful that this may be the year he "finally arrives." The three signings Monday gave San Francisco 31 players under contract for 1964. Phoenix Open to go on as per schedule PHOENIX, Ariz. (UPI)—Relieved sponsors breathed easier today in the knowledge the $50,000 Phoenix Open survived a threatened boycott by the Professional Golfers Association (PGA), and would be played on schedule — with most of the game's biggest names entered. Until late Monday night, there was definite doubt the tourney could be played in the face of the PGA boycott. The PGA announced Sunday after Palm Springs Open that it was cancelling participation in the tournament because the Thunderbirds, who sponsor the Phoenix tourney, would not sign a contract giving the golf organization radio and television rights. Continued negotiations led to an announcement Monday night by Len Huck, Thunderbird president, that "contractual problems facing the Phoenix Open golf tournament have been worked out by Jay Hebert, representing the PGA, and the Thunderbirds." He did not disclose whether the PGA would be given the radio and television rights. But he did say Hebert, one of the more celebrated touring pros and a popular golfer in these parts, had "withdrawn the prohibition and the edict against the participation of PGA members." Almost immediately. Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, perhaps the two biggest names in the game, said they expected to play. Others included National Open champion Julius Boros. Whether all the top golfers could be rounded up in time was a matter of conjecture, but there was a strong belief they could. Many played Monday in a Saltan City, Calif, pro-amateur event and made tentative plans to move on to other areas, but were expected to reconsider and play at Phoe- ANNOUNCE FIGHT WORCESTER, Mass. (UPD— Promoter Sam Silverman announced Sunday that Hector Rodriguez of Providence, R.I., and Lloyd Marshall of Newark, N.J., will meet in an eight- round, featherweight bout at Mechanics Hall Thursday night. "Old Charlie" recalls the past By OSCAR FRALEY EVERGLADES CITY, Fla. (UPI) — Eighty-six year old Charlie Boggess sat on bis screened - in front porch and pointed across Barron River to the swank Everglades Rod and Gun Club lodge. "I can remember when that was a little four-room building and I went to school there," said the first guide in the history of the Everglades. "Now they get people like former Presidents Dwight Ei- [senhower and Harry Truman." Boggess is a relic of the past while the Rod and Gun Club is a testimonial to the future of | a peaceful spot where pelicans and seagulls wheel through the scented air and the tarpon roll temptingly in the clear waters. "Old Charlie" knows all about what went before. His grandpappy came down out of Georgia to settle in this fishing paradise and his father was one of the early plume and alligator hunters. "Feller named Ed Ferguson started hunting gators first," he recalled while the white haired woman to whom he has been married 65 years sat quietly watching him. "All he kept was the head because he sold the teeth for a dollar a pound. They made ladies' pins out of the biggest teeth, watch fobs out of the medium sized ones and earrings from the small ones. Imagine all the ladies' pocketbooks that went floating down the river." And, he grinned, since the Cuban market has been shut off for alligator skins, "there's a lot of bootlegging going on around here in alligator skins." The Rod and Gun Club lodge was built in 1920 but recently, as the western entrance to Everglades National Park, it has been completely refurbished. There is an eight foot channel to the Gulf of Mexico, a 1.000-foot dock, 58 new motel units and a screened in swimming pooL "Biggest tarpon I ever caught," said old Charlie," was 187 pounds. They're still out there, too. We have good fishing all the time." Old Charlie and his wife had seven children, 37 grandchildren "and it would take all week to count our chickheads (great grandchildren)." "Snapper" Butler, one of Charlie's grandsons, is one of the many guides available for hire but he doesn't promise to match old Charlie's feats. "By the time I know as much about the waters around here," said Snapper morosely, "I'll be sittin' up on the porch watchin' my grandchildren." "You used to could go all day and not see a soul around here," remembered the old guide. "But now they really come into that club across the river there. They's poor folks, though. They has to leave." You'll know just what he means if you ever get here.
