Redlands Daily Facts Saturday, Feb. 29,1964-7 Thunderbirds beat Loara 56-49: meet Chino Dennis Hare buckets 28 for Yucaipa five By JOHN W. LENKER The Yucaipa High Thunderbirds advanced in the CIF "AA" playoffs last night after posting an impressive 56-49 victory over the Loara Saxons before a large crowd in the Redlands High School Terrier Gymnasium Dennis Hare, 6-2 forward for coach Kent Hayden's DVL champion Thunderbirds, led the way to the victory as he scored 28 points. Guard Dave Sorenson netted nine, and forward Jerry Priebe and guard Charles Chiappone each added six markers. Yucaipa opened scoring and led for three minutes until Loara's 6-6 center Gary Schmidt tip ped in two points to tie the score at 5-5. A three point play by Loara's Alan Gladstone made the score 8-5, and the Saxons held off Yucaipa until the score at the end of the first quarter was 10-9 Loara. On two free throws apiece by Priebe and Hare, the Thunderbirds moved into a 13-10 lead which they only managed to hold for two minutes. In the next two minutes, Loara came alive to score eight points to only two for Yucaipa, and they moved to an 18-15 lead. Tie Seer: A free throw by Priebe and two by sophomore center Ron Wallace knotted the score at 1818. A technical foul was then called on Loara, because a substitute failed to report before entering the game. Hare took the charity shot and sank it putting Yucaipa ahead 19-18. Yucaipa led for the rest of t h e game. A basket by Dave Sorenson, two by Hare, and a free throw by Wallace ended scoring in the first half for the Thunderbirds. Two buckets by Wallace ended Loara's scoring for the first half, . and the score at half time was 26-22 Yucaipa. Cold and Hot Opening the third quarter the two teams fought on equal terms for the first minute and a half, but then Loara hit a cold streak and Yucaipa hit a hot streak; when the smoke cleared, Yucaipa was on top by 10 points 39-29. The remaining three minutes of the third quarter saw neither team gaining much of an advantage, and the score stood at 45-36 Yucaipa. In the opening minutes of the last stanza, Loara pulled within five points of the T Birds, but one free throw apiece by Chiappone and Wallace and a basket by Sorenson put the lead back to 49-40. Loara battled back to within four points late in t h e quarter 53-49, but two free throws by Chiappone and one by Randy Rubottom put the game out of reach as the buz zer sounded ending the game at 56-49. Hire Stars Hare played a great game, sinking eight of eight free throws and hitting ten of 16 field goals attempted. He rebounded well and many times passed to team mates under the basket. In the losing effort, the Sax ons of Loara High School in Anaheim showed a balanced scoring attack with three players scoring in double figures. Gladstone had 14, and Wallace and Schmidt each had 10. Brent Romney added eight, and Mike Iven bad five to round out the starting five.

He said he was most pleased with the caliber of pitching by both Franken and Ronnie Brejt fus but was disappointed at the failure of the team to get hits when most needed. Actually, Ramona managed to hit only one ball out of the infield but picked up three infield hits and two errors to spoil the Terrier debut. The long but winning run came in the fifth inning on an infield hit and an error.

The game was tied up 5-5 at the end of six innings but Ramona came back to score the winning mark in the eighth inning on the Ramona field. Pitcher Gary Steddum gave up two hits while striking out five and also helped the cause along by scoring two runs on two hits — including the lone home run of the game. Tim VanHorn was 2 for 3 and Dale Lopez was 2 for 5. The Jayvee managed even errors against only three for Ramona. Bulldogs in final game tonight at Whittier The University of Redlands Bulldogs, already posting an early season 62-47 victory over Whittier college, will be after a like score tonight as they go against the Poets in the final SCIAC game of the eason. If the Bulldog quintet posts a win at Whittier tonight, they will have a 9-0 eason in conference play.

It was not until the eve of the team's departure that pitching sar Koufax and General Manager E. J. (Buzzie) Bavasi came to terms. Best guesses were that Koufax signed for something between $70,000 and $75,000. That put Koufax, the National League's most valuable player and Cy Young Pitching Award winner, about on a par with pitcher Don Drysdale who also signed earlier in the week for something better than $70,000. The Koufax agreement left shortstop Maury Wills and outfielder Frank Howard as the only Dodgers not under contract Howard was given permission to report a week later because of personal business affairs and ne will meet with Bavasi later on terms. But the general manager said he had not heard from Wills who was offered the same terms he received last season, about $46,000. Koufax and Bavasi went into conference Friday afternoon following published reports that the 25-game winner had demanded $90,000 under threat to quit baseball if he did not get that amount. The handsome southpaw, however, stressed following his 2li- hour meeting with Bavasi that at no time had he asked for $90,000 and he as happy with the about double what he got last season. "Sandy is a lot happier about the contract than I am," said Bavasi, "but I am pleased we gave him what he. wanted." And Koufax, with a sigh of relief, grinned, "I'm just happy a deal was made.' Blades take on Seattle LOS ANGELES (UPD — The Los Angeles Blades take today off in preparation for meeting the Seattle Totems in the sports arena Sunday. The Blades rolled over the Western Hockey League champion Denver Invaders Friday night 8-3 after falling behind 3-1 in the second period. Champs at Long Beach LONG BEACH (UPD— Four world champions were among the 1,500 track and field athletes competing today at the 23rd Long Beach Relays at Veterans Memorial Stadium. Foremost in competition at the track extravaganza were Henry Carr of Arizona who holds the 220-yard record around a turn of 20.3 seconds; Adolph Plummcr of the Southern California Striders, the 440 - yard champion; hot putter Dallas Long of the Pasadena Athletic Association; and the Arizona State mile relay team which set a mark in that event.

Moore blasted a three - run round-tripper in the first inning and came back with a solo four bagger in the fourth.

Sought for a lucrative come back attempt, Marciano dis closed that he bad tried for a month and a half to get into shape but finally decided that the calendar and his calorics both were against him. 'I'd like to give it a whirl and the more I think about it the more tempting it seems, said the Rock. "But the years and the weight are against me. Marciano. admitted that he long has contemplated h i s chances of making a successful comeback. Even this week, when Clay dethroned Charles (Sonny) Liston, it still was in his mind. 'But I talked it over with my wife and she's against it," he sighed. "I just wish I had gotten serious about it six months ago or more." Answer is Pride The total answer for Marciano is pride. The Brockton blockbuster sailed through an all-winning career of 49 bouts in which he never tasted defeat Forty-three of his opponents went out by the knockout route. Only six went to a decision, all in Marciano's favor. He won the title on Sept. 23 1952, by knocking out Jersey Joe Walcott in the 13th round of their title fight at Philadelphia. Then, on April 27, 1956, he retired undefeated. "I can't bring myself to throw all that away, even for money" Marciano explained. "I couldn't fight Clay, or anybody else, unless I felt right and that I had the old feeling that I'd win." "But the drive isn't there," he confessed quite candidly while promoters hammered at the door. "I don't feel that I can recapture that old feeling and, without it, I'd be perpetrating a fraud. I couldn't do that for all the money in the world." Zooms to 230 When he quit the ring, Marciano weighed 186V4 pounds. Today he scales close to 230 because "I love to eat." "In those days," he remembered, "I never let myself get out of condition. I'd lay off af-' ter a fight and maybe get as high as 210 pounds. But it was not the kind of weight that was hard to take off. That's because I had the determination. Now I don't. Somehow, I just don't have the drive." Marciano still feels that he could defeat Clay, primarily on contrasting styles. Where Liston missed with straight punches, the bobbing and weaving Marciano of old came in like a road scraper, throwing round-house punches with both hands, and he feels that a ducking and relating Clay would have been made to order. "It's a helluva decision to make," he said, "because I still feel that I'm the champion and that in .my prime I could have beaten anybody. Yet time marches on and there are too many factors to be weighed." He stretched out, patted a rotund stomach and sighed again. "I wish I had a year or so going for me. But I hit 40 last September and the odds are just too great the way I feel. I've got 10 or 15 things going for me, and while the money always has to be a great temptation, I guess I have to pass." A great champion, the Rock. And an honest man in a day of charlatans. Hebert, Rudolph take lead in New Orleans NEW ORLEANS (UPD—Lion el Hebert and Mason Rudolph, playing their best golf of the year, took a two-stroke lead into the second round of the S50.000 Greater New Orleans In- itational Tournament today. A drier course, 15-mile per hour winds and a badly shaken field of 158 professionals and amateurs waited for Hebert and Rudolph at the Lakewood Country Club. Hebert, a native of Lafayette, La., and Rudolph, playing out of Lehigh Acres, Fla., fired four- under-par 68's in the first round Friday despite puddles, strong northerly winds and a course that provided little roll for their drives. Both said they played their best rounds of the year. Both had five birdies and a bogey. Dave Marr of New Rochelle, N.Y., and Jack Nicklaus of Columbus, Ohio, were the only oth er golfers to give the course much of a beating. They both scored 70s. Back of them were Gay Brewer Jr., Bobby Nichols, Dutch Harrison, Bob Rosburg, Dan Sikes, Ken Venturi and Frank Hawkins with 71 each. Bruce Crampton, Billy Maxwell, Ken Still and Juan Rodriguez were even par and after that were more than 140 professionals and amateur victims of the 7,020-yard course. The long course, with its 11 lakes, numerous doglegs and soggy fairways proved too tough Friday for Arnold Palmer, Tony Lema, Billy Casper, defending champion Bo Wininger, Gary Player and most of the other big names on the Professional Golfers Association tour. Palmer, who has never done well here, pushed his way through a 38-38—76 Friday and was way back in the field. Wininger and Lema, this year's leading money winner, were tied with Palmer. Player, who shot a 65 in practice Wednesday shot a 75 Friday.

Nevada Wins Crown The University of Nevada wrapped up the Far West Conference championship with an 80-62 win over Cal State at Hayward. The conference title means a berth in the NCAA College Division Western Re- gionals at Fresno. Calif., next weekend.

Both San Jose State and UOP were 5-3 in the conference and tied for second place behind USF (8-0) before Friday night's action. The results of the two key WCAC games Friday night left USF four games in front with three conference games to play. The Dons, riding a 14-game winning streak, tonight play the last team to beat them—the University of California at Santa Barbara. The Gauchos turned the trick in the major upset of the annual WCAC Christmas tournament last December. Big Six Big Six teams, which enjoyed a rare Friday night of rest, return to action tonight. Washington State is at UCLA, Stanford travels to Seattle to oppose Washington and Southern California is at Berkeley against California. With the Bix Six crown firmly in the hands of top-ranked UCAL, the conference spotlight shifts to the battle for second place between California (8-4) and Stanford (7-5) with three games to play. Two teams which will be in the NCAA regionals with UCLA and USF next month had close calls Friday night. Oregon State held off a late rally by Oregon to defeat the Ducks 71-68. The Beavers, who Cardinals fall 70-60 to Pasadena in CIF playoffs San Bernardino's Cardinals failed to survive their second round of the California Inter- cholastic Federation Class AAA basketball playoffs last night suffering a 70-60 loss to Pasadena. Citrus Belt League scoring ace Ernie Powell dropped in 28 points before being removed from the game on personal fouls with 1:09 remaining and the Cards four points behind. The Pasadena Bulldogs, run nerup in the Foothill League, held a slim 29-27 lead at the halfway mark, and outscored the San Bernardino quintet in the final periods. SBHS Coach Dick Adair ques tioned the removal of Powell on fouls, maintaining that his top scorer had committed only four personals, not five. Colton officials hope for big day on strip The old adage, "March winds bring April showers", wasn't greeted with any enthusiasm at the Colton Drag Strip, after breezes abbreviated last Sunday's speedfest at the track two miles west of Colton. This Sunday's meet ushers in the month of March, which is noted for its winds, but Colton officials are crossing their fingers hoping the gusts will take a vacation, during the 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. runs. Gusts ranging from 30 to 80 m p h visited the strip last Sunday, precluding any runs for top eliminator. Rise-Campbell of San Bernardino had one non-competitive run at 161.87 m p h, after the winds abated somewhate.

Greg Vermilion's 12-foot jump shot at the buzzer in overtime provided Sattle's margin of victory. The Chieftains concluded their regular schedule with a 2p-5 record. | USF got a scare when Sanj Jose's Pete Newell Jr. hit two jump shots with three minutes j remaining to pull the Spartans j SBYC defeats Santa Ana Dons in 76-70 upset A second half rally carried San Bernardino Valley College to a 76-70 upset over the Santa Ana Dons last night on the SBVC timbers.
