Rick Jarrett, most valuable player on the tennis team> was not present at the banquet because of a match Thursday at Bloomington and the top player on the golf team will not be determinted until after the sectional meet today. Greensburg honored its high school athletes Thursday night with John Pont, Indiana University's new football coach, providing the laughs and a "meat and potatoes" definition of the value of sports. The second annual all-sports banquet in the cafeteria of Greensburg Community High School was attended by about 150 students, parents, fans and members of the three sponsoring service clubs — Rotarians, Ki- wanians and Lions. High School Principal James Hannah introduced members of the coaching staff and the athletes by teams and announced winners of special awards. All seniors on the various teams received small trophies from the three service clubs. Pont, the 37-year-old mentor with a fiery disposition, proved himself a master of the fast quip. Following his introduction by William H. Hunter, program chairman, in which Font's playing days at Miami of Ohio and successful coaching stints at Miami and Yale were recalled, the speaker told Hunter, an I. U. alumnus, he "hoped his words would be as kind a year from now." The 5-7 coach of the Fightin' Hoosiers responded to the suggestion that taking over at Bloomington, where the football picture in recent years has been somewhat bleak, is a major challenge by announcing lhat he's an optimist and is building a new home. Confidence in Youth Parents were admonished not to worry about their youngsters "growing up" to take their places in the community for the stress and duress of participating in sports will condition the boys to take the bull by the horns and discharge their civic responsibilities. Pont regaled his audience with a pair of "full length" stories — with sound effects — about two football players. The boy at Yale, converted to quarterback at the last minute, learned the plays in 10 minutes and scored two touchdowns. The youngster at Indiana, ignoring instructions on how to handle the ball, scored a touch- dowri on a bread-and-butter play whereas "if he had listened to me he would have gained only five yards." Fortune favors the brave and Lindbergh, Terry Roosevelt and Gus Grissom all displayed a special kind of bravery. Font's answer to the parent who questions the value of sports — you can't make a living blocking and tackling at 45 — was an expression of his belief in the intangibles. Lessons of Sport The speaker said a boy learns self-denial and self-sacrifice — a special form of courage — and the all-important lesson of how to say rio to the wrong people and yes to the right people. An athlete sacrifices to make himself better and when the going is roughest this intangible growth inside will display itself. Pont cited as an example the "heart" displayed by the Greensburg High School football team that defeated Shelbyville in the final seven minutes after being behind, 13-0. Pont told the players this is a game they will remember for desire, courage and bravery are measured in degrees. Representatives of the thre,e sponsoring clubs responded briefly to introductions: They were: Richard Gorbett, president of Lions; James Sturges, vice president of Kiwanis; and Melvin Hedge, incoming president of Rotary and superintendent of schools. Also introduced were the five varsity yell leaders, Nancy Pratt, Dixie Schoenke, Beverly Lay and Joyce Campbell, seniors, and Alexa DeMoss, a junior.

Three Tied For Lead at New Orleans NEW ORLEANS (UPI) — Jack Nicklaus, with another mouth to feed back home, set out on the second leg of the $100,000 New Orleans Open today tied for the lead with Gene Littler and Bill Martin- ti'ale. Each had a piece of the course record in his pocket. Nicklaus, Littler and Martindale breezed around the Lakewood Country Club layout in 65 strokes Thursday, seven under par. That shattered the course mark by two strokes, but was good for only a one-stroke lead over two golfers and a two-stroke lead over a group of seven others. Homero Blancas, who learned his trade at the golf factory at Houston University, and unknown Richard Crawford of El Dorado, Ark. were the youngsters who turned in the 66s. Bunched at 67 were 1964 PGA [champ Bobby Nichols of Corona, Calif., Frank Wharton of Perdido Bay, Fla., Ray Floyd of St. Andrews, 111., Ed Grif- fitsh of Chargrin Falls, Ohio, Dick Lytle of Chula Vista, Calif., Miller Barber of San Antonio, Tex., and Bob Verwey of Johannesburg, South Africa. Four players had 68s ana' 13 more were at 69. Defending champion Mason Rudolph, who held part of the old course record of 67 with Nicklaus, turned in a 71 Thursday. The pros said the all-out attack on par was made possible by the ideal weather and the perfect condition of the 7,020- yard course. Arnold' Palmer, however, did not find the birdies easy to come by. He fired a one-o"ver- par 73, and went immediately to the practice tee for an hour and a half after he finished his round.

Daily News, Friday, Ma* l£ 1965 Koufax Whips Astros Reds Nipped by Phils N II f • On Low Throw in 10th By LEONARD A. GRANATO UPI Sports Writer Southpaw Sandy Koufax of the Los Angeles, Dodgers doesn't think 13 is such an unlucky number—at least, not when he's counting Houston strikeout victims. Koufax, who has an arthritic condition in his pitching elbow, mowed down that many Astros Thursday night and allowed only three hits in posting his fourth victory. of the season, 3-0. He didn't walk anyone. Koufax has now struck out 10 or more batters in 63 games. Thursday's game was his first shutout of the season and th e 28th in his injury-ridden career.. Lou Johnson, who was brought up as a replacement for the injured Tommy Davis, hit his first home run of the season to stake Koufax to the only run he needed', but the Dodgers got him two more before the night was over. Johnson Beaned Johnson was beaned by loser Bob Bruce in the sixth inning. The fast ball hit Johnson's helmet, a couple of inches over his left eye. He was knocked unconscious but was revived on the field, walked off and was taken to a hospital for observation. Maury Wills, the Dodger captain, stole his 18th and 19th bases of the season. In other National League action, San Francisco blasted Chicago 6-3, Milwaukee passed Pittsburgh 5-4 and Philadelphia outlasted Cincinnati 7-6. 'The Mets, and Cardinals were idle. .In the American League, the White Sox took' over first place with a 6-3 victory over the A's coupled with a 10-inning Minnesota defeat at the hands of Los Angeles 4-3. In other action, Boston pounded the Yankees 4-1, Detroit pasted Washington 13-3 and Baltimore edged Cleveland 3-2. Jesus Alou, Willie Mays, and Tom Haller unloaded home runs in helping Jack Sanford to his third victory for San Francisco. Mays also doubled twice. His three hits' put him atop the league in' batting with a .387 average and his 11 home runs are three ahead of the pack. The Giants managed only eight hits, but they were good for 22 Jotal bases. Ernie Broglio lost his third game this season without a victory. Throw Permits Run Deron Johnson's low throw Preokness Saturday- Lucky Debonair Is Perfectly Norma By RAY AYRES BALTIMORE (UPI) — Lucky Debonair, the Kentucky Derby winner which showed up with a swollen ankle Thursday, was perfectly normal this morning and worked out for Saturday's running of the Preakness Stakes. The son of Vertex breezed four furlongs in 48 seconds. After he cooled out, his right rear ankle remained normal. "The swelling is all down and we are over the crisis," said Dr. Alex Harthill, the veterinarian who flew from Kentucky yesterday to treat the horse. Trainer Frank Catrone, in a much happier mood than Thursday when the ankle puffed up to half again its normal size, promised a good race by his horse. "Clockers were impressed with Lucky Debonair's workout. He was full of run right on the bit. He wanted to run like he knew tomorrow was Preakness day," Catrone said. "We watched him closely leaving the track and we could note no trouble. It was like this thing never happened." The puffiness on the inside of Lucky Debonair's leg, caused by an infection of an old wound, was enough to throw the 90th running of the Preakness wide open although the Derby winner remained a strong 7-5 favorite. Dr. Harthill was confident, even Thursday, that the 3-year old colt would be fit to run Saturday. • , On the race track one man s misfortune is another man's good luck. While rival trainers all offered their sympathies to trainer Frank Catrone, one bold fact stared them all squarely in the face. With Lucky Debonair out or ailing, each one of then- horses had a much better crack at the winner's .purse of $128,100 in the $180.600 race. Both totals drop by $1,000 if Lucky Debonair is scratched for it costs an additional $1,000 to start in the mile and three-sixteenth classic with post time set for 5:46 p.m. (EOT). Second by Neck Certainly the job will be easier for Ogden Phipps' Dapper Dan, who was second by a neck two weeks ago at Churchill Downs. There Dapper Dan turned in the fastest final half mile in Kentucky Derby history, 47 seconds. But it wasn't t good enough. Lucky Debonnair [ran the last quarter in*:24 1-5. . i The race also will be easier for Isidor Bieber's Flag Raiser, the speedy colt who won the Bay Shore, the Gotham and the Wood Memorial from wire to wire. But in the Kentucky Derby things were different. Flag Raiser, at 5-1, and Dapper Dan, at 6-1, had many backers. But the second choice was Tom Rolfe, who finished third in the Kentucky Derby. Trainer Frank Whitely insisted that Tom Rolfe had to be considered a d'oubtful starter. The colt is stabled at Laurel and the trainer said he would not van him to Pimlico until Saturday and then "only if everything is perfect." But Swift Ruler, Needles' Count, Native Charger, Selari and Hail To All were set to start in the richest of the Triple Crown classics. fix-up money '. M • I.
