rage.4 THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE •Ccrge-o Steve Colson LL . Athletes in Military Tipton Tourney \" M ^ Draw 'By Eldon Cage,Tribune, Sports Editor.*" Assumption Bumps Ky State (or No. 7 Cage-ology. is printing a letter received from Tipton Little Lea-° gue President Steve Colson on details of the LL organization and their objectives for the coming year. Thanks Steve and officers. The letter without quote marks is as follows... Steve Colson Little League President Little League Baseball in Tipton looks very good for the coming year., We have a fine organization this year in our officers, board of directors and mana- . gers. We feel we have a very good understanding of what "the purpose of Little League Baseball is and how to go about a- chieveing this as an organization. I'm very pleased thus far in the publicresponsetoour goal. To outline some of our efforts: In the fall of 1970 our organization met at the ball park for a work day. We removed, the top layer of our infield and put on loads of new top soil, and leveled out the rough places, and now feel, the diamond is in better shape . than It has been in several years. We received a donation of grass seed from Walt's GardenShopand Tebco Fertilizer is donatingfer- tilizer for bur park this year. Our purchasing committee and members of the board are going to K o k o m o Wednesday evening, March 17th to see the showing of new. equipment b^ Dick Sanburn Co., Kokomo. On this same evening, I along with all Presidents, in the district will meet with Mr. Dillman, our District Leader to discuss the possibility of a district tournament being held in Tipton this season. Our advertising committee is^ now workingon donations for signs for our outfield fence. We hope,to fill up our entire outfield fence with signs this year. • Mrs. Donna Sullivan has volunteered to oversee the concession stand this year. Mrs. Sullivan will set up work sche-, dules all the purchasing for the stand. We'are hopeful for good volunteer help in this area. L . Two new dugouts were donated by two of our local banking establishments, Farmers Loan and Trst Company and Citizens National Bank. These dugouts are estimated to cost $425 each for the materials. We as an organization will be doing the actual construction ourselves with the help of any and all volunteers in our community. Money has been donated to our league thisyear. $100from Lions Club and accordingto trie Bridge, President of Kiwanis Club, they too will be donating $100. Mr. Ned Grayson, General Manager Hy-Line Chicks of Indiana, is donating an American Flag. We intend to fly the flagateach game and play our national anthem. Umpires this season will be strictly on a volunteer basis. We have two very fine men to work behind the plate, Mr. John Baden, and Mr. Fred Robinson. There will be a session of understanding for umpires, managers, and coaches in the spring where the rule book will be gone over and a mutual understanding of the rules will be reached by all. In addition to the present bleachers we have, the high school is letting us use some of their bleachers for the sidelines at first and third base; this will allow more persons to have a seat at the game. Spring tryouts will be announced very soon, so for all you boys between ages of 8 and 12 who would like to play Little League baseball watch the newspaper for time and place of spring tryouts. To the adults of our fine community I say we are preparing for a very exciting season on our newly remodeled field with our new organization; so please come out to the ball games this season and enjoy yourselves. Batter - Up!! C-0 It will be the policy of this column to attempt to keep fans informed of the whereabouts of former Tipton, Windfall andSharps- ville - Prairie Athletes now in military service. We are all in terested in American Servicemen whether or not they were former athletes, but since this column is_ broadly for athletics, sports and related recreations, just the related sports servicemen will be mentioned here and all other servicemen and women will be publicized on other pages. So, today, we will honor Lance Corporal Gary T. Harpe, former Tipton High School and All CIC Football Player who is now a Ma- ripe in DaNang, South Vietnam. Gary was a hard-hitting Center on offense and a tough 'cookie* of a linebacker on defense, who played with a broken hand for much of the 1968 season. His address is: Lance Corporal Gary T. Harpe, 2637857, L Co. Hdqtrs. Pit. 3/4 Mar. Div. FMF- FPO, San Francisco, Calif. 96602. His parents are Mr. and Mrs. Hilry Harpe of Tipton. There are an estimated 150 Tipton County men in military service and more than one-half were connected with sports, so probably 100 servicemen and their addresses need to be mentioned n this column. Some servicemen may not want their addresses made public, so readers when sending in servicemen's publicity, omit the address if not desirable to publish, but do give particulars about the former athlete and his branch of service. We are sure there are many former Sharpsville, Prairie and (Continued on page eight) By United Press international NEW YORK (UPI>-Assumption College, which has defied the adage that you need a big man to win in modern day basketball, took advantage of Tennessee State's upset of Kentucky "-State last week to move into the" no. 1 position i the weekly United Press International Board of Coches small college ratings.

United Press International ; The | Minnesota Twins finally have-signed their first $100;000 player j and now they'd like to 'wait a. while before they sign their second. '•• Harmon Killebrew, who hit 41 homers and drove in. 113 runs for the Twins, agreed to the $100,000 pact over the phone, club president Calvin Griffith announced Tuesday.. But | while Killebrew signed the six-figure contract, the Twins | are trying not to give Tony Oliva one. Oliva figures he's wprth it after hitting .325 last season and driving in 107 runs. | The Twins also announcti the- signing of. two other players, shortstop Leo Cardenas, and minor leaguer Cotton Nash, the former Kentucky basketnall star who hit 33 homers for Evansville last, season. : Gary! Nolan, who started the first game of the World Series for Cincinnati last season, sighed j his contract with the Reds. He posted an I8r7 record last season with an ERA of 3.26.

The guesses |in that. the '"substanUal'i' a contract of about raise; are means $75,0001 Frank Reberger,, who's expected jto be a starter for San Francisco, became the 21st Giant to sign his contract this season.] He was 7-8 for the year but looked impressive at the end of the campaign when he switched from a reliever to a starter. Three righthanded pitchers, Chuck Taylor, Reggie Cleveland and Bob Chlupsa, agreed to terms with the St. Louis 'Cardinals. • The Baltimore Orioles signed Paul Blair, the leading hitter in the World Series with a .474 mark, to his contract. The champion- Orioles now have signed 22 players. Eight Yanks Sign The New . York Yankees signed eight players, including Roy White, who received a raise to $50,000 after hitting .296 last season. The other players signing were Curt Blefary, Stan Bahnsen, Gene Michaels, Frank Tepedino, Ron Klimkowski, Gary Waslewski and Tony Solaita. The start, of spring training never is complete without the Mets wondering about third base. The club hasn't had a regular in its nine years of existence and it looks like there'll be a scramble again this season since Wayne Garrett was inducted into the Array for a four to six month term, which will - mean he'll miss much of the season. Bob Aspromonte, obtained during the off-season because the Mets were worried about Garrett's medical status, and rookies Tim Foli and Teo Martinez will be battling for the job. .THROUGH] TUESDAY,' FEBRUARY 23 20 FREE WEBB- STAMPS with $3.00 or mors gas purthna DOUBLE STAMPS EVERY WED.
