Stu Miller Willing to live by Rules \ By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer Stu Miller is no law-breaker. He knows the rules of the game and he's willing to live by them. Happy about them he's not, but willing to live by them he is. Miller's slow stuff was no mystery to American League batters IS* JWs§n%nd fliere- suit was a 3-10 record— the poorest the 40-year-old Baltimore reliever has had in 19 years of professional baseball. ~It will show in his paychecks this season. "I expected a pay cut," said Miller, who was sliced from $40,000. "What else, after the year I had? It's the law of the jungle. Win and you are rewarded. Lose and they cut your salary." But lose at Miller's age and sometimes teams cut more than your salary. Sometimes they cut you. Miller knows that and showed up at the Baltimore training camp weighing a trim 172 pounds, 10 under his playing weight. He went through his first workout Monday. And Leo Durocher let his Chicago Cubs know they'd be in for it if he found it necessary to fine them this year. "Just remember, fellows," Durocher told the Cubs at their first clubhouse meeting, '.'when I take your money for breaking rules, I don't start at $25. It's more likely to be $200 for a starter." The New Yankees and Cleveland Indians came up with a couple of starters of their own, New York signed left-hander A! Downing, 14-10 last season, to a 1968 contract and Cleveland added righty Sonny Siebert, 1012, in 1967. Downing got a reported $9,000 raise to $31,000 and Siebert moved into the $40,000 neighbor* hood, Pitcher Jim Maloney, seeking a $15,000 boost to $75,000, is one of five Cincinnati first stringers stilj not signed. Others are pitcher Mel Queen, second baseman Tommy Helms and outfielders Vada Plnson and Pete Rose, Three .300 hitting outfielders are missing from Pittsburgh's camp, Patting champion Roberto Clemente and Manny Mpta both have been delayed by illnesses in the family, Matty Alou, who hit .338 last year, |s on his way to camp with his contract but the Pirates aren't sure he's signed it yet. "An unofficial holdout," was what General Manager Joe L. Brown called Alou. Pitcher Phil Reg^n anci catcher Elston Howard drew praise from their respective managers. Los Angeles skipper Walt Alston watched Regan who slipped from 14.-J in 1966 to 6-9 last year. "Last year," said Alston, "his trouble was mostly control. He started off throwing a little too high and it stayed that way (from page f©uf } scheduled game Hope traveled up to Little Rock and clipped Joe t« Robinson SMS. District tournament dame, with Prescott as host. Hope assured themselves of a state tournament spot by knocking Prescott out by 6142 and moved into the long-a waited ftftal against Ashdowiu What a game It »a.? f as ho teams fought to a 47*47 standstill in regulation play, and 4 49*43 tie after one overtime, Nobody could say thai the teams weren't evenly matched, but Ashdown took advantage of Hope's foul trouble and won 54* 51 in double overtime, thus the Lady Cats' I4*game winning streak was ended, and their 20 wins in 21 games becam* 20 out of 22. With pride and determination the Lady Cats buckled down for the climax of the year with state tournament at Prescott, and the Prescott officials put on a great show, with only one unintentional flaw, Three referees were signed for the tournament, Including Grady Cathey, who was principal of Hope High School last school year. However, the other two refs were assigned to do Hope's games, Then in the sec* ond game on Wednesday morn- Ing one of the other two officials Injured his leg, putting him out of the picture. Thus Mr. Cathey had to call Hope's games too, which surely must have been a big burden on him, although he and Doyle Henderson did a good Job with the rest of the tournament. Beebe provided little opposition in the first round, and the Lady Cats rolloed as easily as always, 57-22. A tough Leslie team stood opposite Hope in the quarterfinals, but a blistering offensive performujKii.1 £'ive Hope the game 68-50. The meet's surprise team, Greenwood, now was left for the semifinals. No problem there, as a second half jaunt of 43 points made It 66-45 and Hope had another chance against Ashdown, this time in the state finals. You know the rest, as one sickly point sent Ashdown home happy with the 47-46 win, while the Hope fans wept. Second in the state is no pushover, though, and the best a Hope team has ever done. It was a year with a 25-6 record, in which "61" became the Lady Cats' lucky number. They hit 61 points six times, and won -' KARJ&fa vtit»i «•«« Mr AN 'INSIDE' LOOK AT SPORTS—New York Yankee pitcher Fred Talbot (upper left) laces his spikes for a spring training workout In Fort Laiidcrdale, Fla.; Charles Pnsnrell (upper right) mulls over a recent tennis defeat; Bobby Orr (lower left), ace defense- man for the Boston ({ruins, greets visitors In a Newton.'Mass.. hospilal nfler undergoing surgery for removal of a torn cartilage; and Gamely, with Manuel Ycaza up, has the Inside rail In the stretch and goes on to win the Snntn Margarita Invitational at Santa Anita. is the only team in the state who can brag about beating both the State Class A and Class B champions, Ashdown and Bradley. And of the six losses for Hope, three went to Bradley and three went to Ashdown. That, my friends, is class opposition. Seniors Carol Anthony, Kathryn Coleman, Gail Hartsfield, Vickie Reeves, Nellie Churchwell, Sandra May, Donna Byers, and Kay Coleman now depart, having won a sum total of seven tournament trophies over the last three years. They leav,' however, very happy memories of a state finalist and, of course, that melancholy condition after losing In that game by one point. It has been my privilege to have followed the Lady Cats for the past season, and this is a team that this writer, for one, shall never forget and always remember, And the cry that **nt out during the award ceremonies ending the state tournament lurks on. At just the right moment a fan stood and screamed, "Hope's still the bestl" Some opposition aroused from the Ashdown side, to which the same fellow got up once again and hollered, "I still say Hope is the bestl" This time the Hope fans brought down the house with a deafening roar. And you know, they just may have been right, Cage Team Suspended for Playoff PHILADELPHIA (AP) - U was the city's Catholic League Northern Division playoff and North Catholic High School's en» tire varsity squad had just been suspended, North Catholic coach John Frie}, who is also the school's head disciplinarian, broqght his junior varsity squad to face Bishop McDevitt High School, Guess what: The jayvees beat the McDevitt varsity 77*60, friel suspended the varsity squad J2 hours before the game for cutting classes, The junior varsity had scored only 73 points in splitting its two regular season games with McDey» Ut's jayvees, most of the season. We'll wor* on keeping him down and see what happens." Howard, Boston's 39-year-old catcher, belted a pair of long drives over the left field fence and impressed Manager Die* Williams. Some Laughs from the Sports World By BENOLAN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Laugh- log at Sports: Wilt Chamberlain scored his 25.000th point In pro basketball. Just, goes to show what hard .work, concentration and being '7-foot-l can do. Big league baseball players gained a $10,000 minimum salary., .and they got It even before the first strike was called. The management of the new Madison Square Garden is really getting concerned about spectators' visibility. Before each event now, the Garden organist asks musically, "Oh, say can you see?..." I watched so many sports events on television the past weekend, I woke up Monday morning with pulled eyeballs. A friend of mine, a sweet guy, turned the channel selector so much he developed a bad case of dlaletee. Wonder how the new Washington manager Jim Lemon will make out In the Grapefruit League. They've got a big one going next week Involving Frazier, Mathis, Griffith and Benvenuti. Isn't it a little early, though tor the first doubleheader? Massachusetts and New York will recognize either Frazier or Mathis as the champion, Maine and Vermont still favor Alf Landon. Sandy Koufax predicts he'll Improve as a sports broadcaster this year. Hasn't he heard about the sophomore jinx? You don't hear much these days about the six-day bike races. Must be because we're on a five-day week. Boston's star outfielder predicts another pennant for the Red Sox. He seems to be giving out with the same old Yaz. * It doesn't add up: Pro football has one commissioner for two leagues. Pro soccer has two commissioners for one league. Vinegar Bend Mizell, the old , pitcher,, Is going to run tor eiec- tlve'/office'. Should 'add some spice to the campaign. Houston is way ahead of UCLA in the latest college basketball rankings. In fact, they're really polls apart. Big league clubs have scheduled 17 games for Memorial Day. What's baseball trying to do ... horn In on hockey's Stanley Cup playoffs? African nations insist they won't participate In the Summer Olympics. Wonder whether they're Ghana change their minds. Would you believe ... the National Basketball Association actually has a game scheduled this week for one of its league cities? Glad the Score Was No More ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — New Moxlco's conversion from a slowdown basketball offense to fastbreaking play in two victories last week brought a small protest. In a letter to Albuquerque Journal Sports Editor LeRoy Bearman, Scott Springer wrote: "I am six-year-old.

It's hard to believe If you look at the current National Basketball Association statistics. The league's top four scorers are all back-court men. Leading tho-pack'ls Detroit's Dave Blng with 1,809 points, almost 200 more than Seattle's Walt Hazzard. Next come Baltimore's rookie flash, Earl Monroe, and Philadelphia's Hal Greer. Wilt Chamberlain breaks the small man's stranglehold by capturing fifth place. Chamberlain, Philadelphia's 7-foot-2 center, leads two other departments by wide margins. The big guy, who passed the 25,000-polnt plateau last week, is tops in field goal percentage with a .580 mark and in rebounds with 1,618, an average of almost 24 per game.
