Ehizuelen Sets Drake Record DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Triple jumper Charlton Ehizuelen's timing was perfect in the 65th Drake Relays. Winds gusting up to 30 miles per hour hampered performances Saturday at the final stop on the Texas-Kansas-Drake relays circuit, and there were only three legal jumps in the Illinois freshman's speciality. And one was 55 feet, 24 inches by Ehizuelen (pronounced IsWAY-len) to set not only a Drake record but to rank as the best in the world this season. "I knew I was going to have a good day," said the 20-year- old from Nigeria. "I knew it probably would be 55 feet or better because I had practiced every day during the week." That's en exception to Ehizuelen's training, according to Illinois Coach Bob Wright. "He's been telling me he needs to jump only three times or maybe even twice a week," s a i d W r i g h t afterwards. "Maybe this will change his mind." Ehizuelen twice jumped 55 feet, but the other effort was wind-aided. The old Drake mark was 53-7 by Barry McClure of Middle Tennessee State last year. Previous best in the world this year was 54-11 3 /.! by Clarence Taylor of UCLA. "I feel I'm capable of 56 by the nationals, and that's what I'm shooting for," said the slender African who has Gibson, Brett Bat Way to NL Wins By The Associated Press St. Louis hurler Bob Gibson and Pittsburgh's Ken Brett, good hitting pitchers, were at it again Sunday with extra-base hitting and some tight pitching. Gibson scattered 10 hits in pitching the Cardinals past the Cincinnati Reds 9-2 while Brett socked his first home run of the season in the Pirates' 7-3 triumph over the Astros. Elsewhere in the National League, the red-hot Los Angeles Dodgers blanked the Montreal Expos 4-0 for their sixth consecutive victory, the San Diego Padres rallied for five runs in the ninth inning to edge the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4. the Chicago Cubs nipped the Atlanta Braves 4-3 and the New York Mets swept a doubleheader from the San Francisco Giants 6-0 and 6-4. Gibson, who survived a shaky start in pitching the Cardinals into a virtual first-place tie with Montreal in the NL's East Division, drilled a double in the third inning and scored on a double by Ted Sizemore, giving St. Louis an 8-1 lead. Gibson threw 129 pitches Sunday in posting his first 1974 triumph and first complete game and lowering his earned run average to a still-high 5.63. He walked three and struck out five. Brett, who set a record last year by homering in each of four consecutive pitching starts, belted a solo shot off Houston's Claude Osteen and Willie Stargell added a two-run homer in the Pirates's win. Stargell connected in a three-run fourth and relief pitcher Dave Giusti. Doger 4, Expos 0 Steve Yeager slammed a three-run homer to back the four-hit pitching of Doug Rau and Mike Marshall. Yeager's homer highlighted a four-run fourth inning against Mike Torrez. Rau limited the Expos to one hit through six innings. Padres 5, Phillies 4 Willie McCovey's run-scoring single capped a five-run rally in the ninth inning, giving the Padres their third win in a row and sixth in their last seven games after a 3-13 start.

Ehizuelen's triple jump victory was the only record on Saturday's program, going along with four set Friday. That was fewer than expected.

Nettles Hits llth April HR By The Associated Press Meet the new home run king. Hank Aaron? No, Graig Nettles. Nettles has done something that even Aaron has not been able to accomplish yet. The New York Yankee third baseman broke an American League record and tied the major league mark with his llth home run of April during Sunday's 8-5 loss to Texas in the second game of a doubleheader. The Yankees, who beat the Rangers 11-2 in the opener, have the hottest long-ball hitter in the majors in Nettles. Somewhat of a disappointment last season after his acquisition from Cleveland. Nettles has become the darling of the New York press and fans. His blast, a two-run shot off Ferguson Jenkins Sunday. broke the American League record of 10 set in 1969 by Baltimore's Frank Robinson and tied the major league mark set by Pittsburgh's Willie Stargell in 1971. In other American League games, the Baltimore Orioles nipped the Oakland A's ,4-3: the Minnesota Twins topped the Milwaukee Brewers 6-5; the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 6-4; the Boston Red Sox turned back the Kansas City Royals 5-4 in 13 innings and the Cleveland Indians walloped the California Angels 10-2. Ron Blomberg's three-run homer and Thurman Munson's solo shot highlighted a barrage of extra-base hits that produced seven runs in the third inning, powering the Yankees to their opening-game Victory over Texas. Orioles 4, A's 3 Designated hitter Tommy Davis greeted Oakland relief ace Rollie Fingers with a run- scoring single in the eighth inning, lifting Baltimore over the A's. Twins 6, Brewers 5 Bill Campbell posted his sixth save of the season, preserving a 6-5 victory for Minnesota over Milwaukee. Tigers 6, White Sox 4 Willie Horton slammed his fifth homer of the season, doubled home another run and scored twice to lead Detroit over Chicago. Red Sox 5, Royals 4 Cecil Cooper led off the 13th inning with his second home run of the season, lifting Boston past Kansas City, snapping the Red Sox' five-game losing streak. Indians 10, Angels 2 George Hendrick walloped a grand slarn home run in an eight-run eighth, his second homer of the game, to carry Gaylord Perry and Cleveland over California. Iowa Golf— Minnesota's John Harris received top medalist honors as he shot a total of 146 at the Finkbine Golf Course at the University of Iowa in a 36-hole tournament over the weekend. He was followed by Steve Broadwell of Michigan State who had a 148. Bob Dowd of Iowa and Tom Fox of Purdue who had 150 each and Bill Bradford of Michigan State who had 152. Team honors Saturday went to Michigan State with 773 followed by Purdue with 777. Iowa's No. 2 team was sixth with 802 and Iowa's No. 1 team was ninth with 811. Miller Claims 5th Golf Title With Clutch Last Hole Par CARLSBAD. Calif. (AP) Johnny Miller wasn't expecting to win the Tournament of Champions. Not after that opening 75. And, as late as the last round he was pulling for Buddy Allin, a onetime teammate at Brigham Young. "He's a gutsy little guy who's had a lot of problems. A real gentleman. I was pulling for him to win," Miller said, smiled, and added: "But I was trying to get in my licks, too." He did. Miller claimed his fifth pro golf title of the year Sunday with a clutch four-foot par-saving putt on the last hole that let him avoid a sudden-death playoff with Allin and John Mahaffey. Miller, the U.S. Open champion and the sensation of the tour this season, was the only man in the elite field of 25 tournament winners who broke par in the windy, pressure-packed final round. He had a 69 and a 280 total. Allin and Mahaffey, now a runner-up three times this season, each had a share of the top spot until they bogeyed the 72nd hole. They tied for second at 281, Mahaffey with a final 70, Allin with 71. Billy Casper was alone at 71—283. The group at 285 included Gene Littler, Jerry Heard and Hubert Green, a two-time winner this year. Littler and Heard had 71s on the 6,855-yard La Costa Country Club course and Green blew to a77. Jack Nicklaus, a four-time winner of this tournament and favored to do it again, closed with a 75 and was well back at 287. Lee Trevino trailed the field with a 300 total. For the first time in two decades Arnold Palmer failed to qualify for the tournament that is made up only of regular tour events for the last 12 months. Masters champ Gary Player had a previous commitment and could not compete. Miller collected $40.000 from the total purse of $200.000 and pushed his winnings for the year to an eye-popping $192.877. "Up until a year ago I had to play my very best and get the breaks to win a golf tournament," Miller said. "Now it's getting like Nicklaus. You know, he wins a golf tournament and comes in and says 'I didn't play particularly well.' "I don't mean that my game is anywhere near as good as his. I don't mean that at all. What I mean is that I can play not my best, just pretty good, and still win." Miller, who now has won eight times in the last 10 months, scored previous victories this year in the Bing Crosby National Pro-Am, the Phoenix and Tucson Opens, and the Heritage Classic. Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, April 29, 1974 Among individual winners were Marshall Dill of Michigan State in the college 100 for a third straight year. Florida State's Danny Smith in the high hurdles and Ivory Crockett in the spr-ml 100. Both 100s went in wind-aided times of 9.3. Kansas and Western Kentucky each produced two individual winners in the univer- sitv-college division. Kansas pole vauiter Harry Porter triumphed at 17-0 and Jayhawker high jumper Randy Smith won at 7-1 based on fewest misses. Western Kentucky's Edward Leddy was the 3,000-meter steeplechase winner in 8:b4.9 and teammate Jesse Stuart was the shot put victor with 64-2'i. Derby Field Not Yet Filled Then Sports Glances Little League— Any sponsors of Little League teams in Carroll last year who do not wish to sponsor a team this summer are asked to contact Bob Beeson (792-4061) by Wednesday. Also, Beeson said, today (Monday) is the final day for boys to sign up in all Little League leagues. Anderson Dies— Funeral services were planned today for Edward N. Anderson, a former head football coach at Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass., for 21 years and a member of the Football Hall of Fame. Dr. Anderson, 73, died Friday after a long illness. A native of Oskaloosa, Anderson started playing football as a freshman end on Knute Rockne's first varsity team at Notre Dame in 1918. During a coaching career which spanned four decades.

Anderson, an eye. ear and throat specialist at Massachusetts General Hospital, practiced medicine during most of his coaching years. He began his coaching career at Columbia College, now Loras, in Dubuque and also coached at DePaul in addition to Iowa and Holy Cross. Anderson was named coach of the year after leading the fabled Ironmen, led by Heisman Trophy winner Nile Kinnick. to a second place Big 10 finish in his first year as Iowa coach. Iowa, which upset Notre Dame 7-6 that year, was 4-1-1 in the conference and 6-1-1 overall. He coached Iowa to a 4-4 record in 1940, including another upset of Notre Dame.

Stephens said after John M Olin's Cannonade turned in a blazing stretch run to win the seven-furlong Stepping Stone Purse at Churchill Downs' opening last Saturday. Just two days earlier Stephens watched Scth Hancock's Judger charge from far back to add a victory in the 1' H-mile Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland to his triumph in the Florida Derby "I'm taking it day by day." said Stephens when asked about his plans for the remaining days leading up to the $125.000-added. Derby Saturday. i - m i 1 e Coach Named— Bob Nielsen was named head basketball coach at Thomas Jefferson High School in Council Bluffs Saturday. Nielsen, 32, succeeds Bob McCool, who resigned last month to enter business. Nielsen has been sophomore basketball coach and head track coach at the school. Hall of Fame- Kansas greats Jim Ryun and Ernie Shelby and Rice's Fred Hansen were inducted into the Drake Relays' Hall of Fame Saturday. The trio had a spectacular career at Drake, all were NCAA champions and two either hold or held world records. All three were "grand slam winners on the Texas-Kansas-Drake Midwest relays circuit. Ryun wasted little time in etching his name into the Drake Relays, winning a special mile as a freshman in 1966 in 4:05.6. The following year he helped make track history when he stormed from 45 yards back to anchor the Kansas four-mile relay team to a victory over arch-rival Kansas State in 16:43, running a 3:59.1 mile leg. He then anchored the Jayhawks to a world mark of 9:33.8 in the distance medly relay, blazing the mile in 3:55.6 — the finest relay mile in Drake history. Day-by-day was the approach being taken b> several owners and trainers in making up their minds as to whether to start their colts in the Derby. A check of the Churchill Downs stable area Sunday turned up seven possible starters and 21 definite starters. Among the other definites is the Sigmund Sommer-entry of Accipiter and Rube The Great, the probable second favorite. Accipiter actually finished first in the Stepping Stone but was riderless, having unseated Miguel A. Rivera shortly after the start. Rube The Great won divisions of the Gotham and Wood Memorial in his last two races. See Us For OFFICE SUPPLIES I Ledgers • Journals i Filing Supplies i Card Files See us before. you buy.

'v'}Af^K»^^^^f^^^f f '-'" Celtics Take NBA Playoffs Lead MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Boston Celtics challenged the Milwaukee Bucks at their strength—superstars Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson—and lived to tell about it. Dave Cowens' outside shooting kept the 7-foot-2 Abdul-Jabbar away from the Boston basket Sunday, while pressure team defense wore down Robertson, the Bucks' 35-year-old playmaker. The formula, plus 26 points by old pro John Havlicek, swept the Celtics to a 98-83 victory and a 1-0 lead in the National Basketball Association championship playoffs. "If we had just let them do what they wanted to, they would have killed us," said JoJo White, who teamed with Don Chancy to apply relentless pressure to Milwaukee's depleted guard corps. "We wanted to make Oscar handle the ball as much as possible because he gets tired," White said, adding the Bucks can expect more pressure in Game 2 of the best-of-seven series on Tuesday here. "We're going to press no matter what," he said. "There's nothing they can do about it. They can't hire a helicopter to bring the ball up." Abdul-Jabbar, the NBA's Most Valuable Player, poured in 35 points and grabbed 14 rebounds. But only two teammates, Bob Dandridge and reserve Mickey Davis, scored in double figures—managing 12 points each. Dandridge, guarded most of the time by the 34-year-old Havlicek, sank only six of 17 shots and scored only eight points until the final minute. Robertson connected on only two of 13 shots. Cowens, whose 19 points matched White's total, sank three consecutive baskets midway in the first quarter as the Celtics broke from an 11-11 tie to a permanent lead. Cowens played much of the time near the top of the key or on the right side in what Boston Coach Tom Heinsohn called the Celtics' no-post offense. The strategy forced Abdul-Jabbar away from the defensive basket, opening the middle for drives by Havlicek. "With Kareem, it's a cat-and-mouse Havlicek said. "If you have a big guy you try to keep him under the basket. We don't have a big guy, so we try to keep Kareem outside." The Celtics, fueling their fast break by outrebounding the Bucks 46-40, led 35-19 after one period, by 17 points in the second quarter and 67-52 with 5:09 left in the third period. Cowens, five inches shorter than Abdul-Jabbar, had 17 rebounds. WE ARE NOT FULLY STOCKED YET BUT WE WILL SELL WHAT WE HAVE. SO PLEASE STOP IN OR GIVE US A CALL.
