12-Tburs., Mir. 19. 1964 Redlands Daily Facts Procedure outlined Decision on new coach up to school trustees Now that Frank Serrao has formally stepped down from his post as head coach of the Hed lands high school Terrier football team after an cxemplarj' seven-years, sports buffs will be merrily speculating on the choice of his successor. But whatever rumors may circulate, the final decision is one which will come only from Redlands School Trustees. They meet next Tuesday evening for a regular session. Whether it will be possible or even desirable for them to take action on a successor at that early time was still not known today. Labor of Love Actually, coaching at Redlands high school is more a labor of love than anything UCLA places three on All team SAN FR.\NCISCO {UPI)-Unbeaten UCLA placed three men on the A11-AA\VU basketbafl team as picked by the loop's six head coaches. Bruin guards Gail Goodrich and Walt Harjard were joined by OCLA forward Jack Hirsch. Stanford center Tom Dose and use forward Al Young rounded • out the all-star quintet All but Ifirsch were unanimous picks. The second team: forwards Dan Wolthers of CaUfomia, Clinf Peeples of Washington; center Ted Warner of Washing ton State; guards Byron Vadset of Washington State and a tie among Kent Hinckley and HoUis Jloore of Stanford, Dan Lufkm of California and Doug Bakom of use.

For high school fand junior high) coaches are first and foremost, teachers. Serrao, for instance, teaches driver education as his regular job. His post ^s head football coach was considered virtually extra-curricular and contributed just $550 per year to his liveU hood. Because of the coach's status as a teacher, above all else, his assignments are made like any other — through the superin tendent's office with the advice of the principal. Thus, the basic responsibility for recommending the assign ment of a person to coach varsity football belongs to the superintendent of schools. Therefore, the formal proced ures for replacing Coach Ser rao will go something like this. The person leaving submits his resignation (both as teacher and coach) to the School Board but through the superintendent. Two Alternatives The superintendent then has two alternatives. If he believes there is a person already em ployed as a teacher in the Redlands district who is qualified to become head football coach, he may make such a recommendation to the board. Normally, in the case of a high school head coach, he would make (his rccommcn datbn after consultation with the principal and the director of athletics. If the superintendent does not feel there is a person qualified or interested in the coaching job, the district would use normal teacher recruitment channels to seek applications for the position. Any such applications would then be reviewed by the superintendent, principal and director of athletics and logical candidates would receive personal interviews. From this would come a recommendation to the School Board. San Francisco Boston win divisions HELP! HELP! HELP! We Have A Problem!

Tlie Western Division title was not settled until Wednes day night's final action when St. Louis made things easy for San Francisco by dropping 106-96 decision at Detroit an then the Warriors earned the title anyway \vith an 89-85 win over the persistent Philadelphia 76ers. Boston wound up on the short end of a 103-95 count at Balti more. The Celts thus wound up four games ahead of the Cin cinnati Royals, but lost an op portunity to match their 1963 league record of 60 wins. They wound up with a 59-21 record, The great SL Louis star Bob Pettit was ejected from the con test at Detroit. It was the first time that Pettit, all-time scoring king of the National Bas kelball Association, was ever tossed out of any contest m his amateur or professional career. Referee Sid Borgia ejected Pettit early in the final stanza following a scuffle imder the St. Louis basket with Piston Don Ohl. Pettit was knocked to the floor and had the ball stolen from him. No foul was called and Pettit protested so vehemently that ho got the thumb. PclUt stiU led the Hawks with 29 and Ohl topped Detroit with 28. The Pistons win gave them a 23-57 mark and forced them fo yield first draft choice to New York, which had concluded the year at 22-58. San Francisco blew a 20- point lead to Philadelphia and fell behind 76-75 with eight minutes to go. But Wilt Chamberlain, who led all scorers with 36 points, hit two buckets to put the Warriors back in business. San Francisco wound up the season with a 48-32 mark. Rookie Gus Johnson hit 28 points and Walt Bellamy 25 to pace the Baltimore upset of Boston. Tom Hcinsotm led the Celts with 25. Boston and San Francisco thus won the player pool that goes to the division leaders and also earned a first - round play, off bye. Cincmnati will meet Philadelphia for the right to take on Boston in the East and St. Louis meets Los Angeles to earn the shot at San Francisco in the West Both first - round playoffs arc threc-ouH)f- fivc scric.<:. PERSISTENT— Don Wert of the Detroit Tigers slides safe at second with a stolen base just barely ahead of the throw to Tony Taylor of the Phillies in a game at Clearwater, Fla. Wert had started to steal on four successive pitches but each time a foul tip sent him back to first. It worked on the fifth pitch. Set sights on pennant Cincinnati out to prove '63 a mistake Army advances fo semi-finals NEW YORK (UPl) - It is a little less tasty, but the National Invitation Basketball Tournament title would still be a delectable morsel for Army after five years of football starvation at the hands of Navy. Army, imseeded and obviously underrated, upset both St. Bonaventure and Duquesne with last-minute rallies to advance to the semifinals against Bradley tonight at Madison Square Garden at 9 p.m. EST. New York University (17-8) meets fourth-seeded New Mexico (22-5) in the semifinal opener at 7 p.m. EST. (EDITOR'S NOTE: This Is the fourth of 20 dispatches on the 1964 prospects of the ma{or league baseball teams). By LEO H. PETERSEN UPl Sports Editor TAMPA, Fla. (UPl) — The Cincinnati Reds arc cut to prove that their fifth place finish in 1963 was a mistake. From Manager Freddie Hutchinson on down they think they have a good chance of winning the National League pennant. 'And we can do it," insists Hutch, well on his way to winning his fight against cancer, "without any of our players having outstanding years. All they have to do is to play up to their potential."' The three men who hurt the Reds most last year were outfielder Frank Robinson and pitchers Joey Jay and Bob Purkey. Robinson, who had hit .342 in 1962 with 39 home runs and 139 runs batted in, slumped off last season to .259 with only 21 HR's and 91 BBI's. Jay, who won 21 games in 1962, won only seven last year while losing 18. Purkcy, a 23 - game winner in '62, won only si.x last season. "They have got to do better if we are to win." Hutchinson said. "But wo all know (hey arc better than what they showed last season." Others Disappointing As a matter of fact, Hutchinson pointed out that three other Reds, loo, didn't measure up to expectations, first baseman Gordy Coleman, shortstop Leo Cardenas and catcher Johnny Edwards. Those six, along with sophomore second baseman Pete Rose, centerficlder Vada Pinson and pitchers Jim Maloney, Jim O'Toole, John Tsitouris and Joe Nuzhall form the backbone of the Reds. "They need help from the others, of course," Hutch ex WALLEN PONTIAC "A Good Place To Do Business" 522 ORANGE 793-2454 SHOP WHERE THE SHOPPING IS BEST * 50 New Cars In Stock * 10 Minute Appraisal * Highest Allowances * Efficient Service * DODGE ' DODGE DART ' CHRYSLER * IMPERIAL We're Never Undersold Van Dorin Motor C 0.

"But on their records they figure to be our big men, Our fate is m their hands." Like all other clubs, the Reds have some problems. They are counting on Tommy Harper, field most of last season, sophomore who played the out- rookie Chico Ruiz to fill a gap at third base. And Harper would only t>e available for duty there if Bob Skmner can win the left field job. The Reds catching is a bit on the thin side, too, after Edwards. So it stacks up like ttiis: Outfield Lineup An outfield of Robmson, Pinson and Skinner with Marty Kcough, who also can pi a first, and either Mel Queen Dcron Johnson, both San Diego graduates, for utility duty. An infield of Coleman, Rose, Cardenas and either Harper or Ruiz. Harper is the big hope. CharUe Neal, who seems have improved since he started wearing glasses this spring, may stick as a utility man. A catching staff of Edwards a real workhorse, with cither Hal Smith, who appears over the hill or Jim Campbell, Houston Colt discard lik Smith, as the second man. Starting pitchers — Maloney, 23-7 last season; OToolc, 17-14. Tsitorius, 12-8 and one of the best right banders in the league over the last third of last sea son; Nuxhall, 15-8; Jay and Purkey. Relief pitchers — Bill Henry, only 1-3 last season, the No. left bander and the veteran Al Worthington, 4-4, the No. 1 right bander. Patty Berg in quest of eighth title PENSACOLA. Fla. (UPI)Sentimental favorite Patty Berg tees off today in quest of her eighth title m the 35th Women's Western Association Open golf ! tournament. j Miss Berg, who has picked up ;8l victories in a career dating I back to the 30s, is given as |odds-on chance to win despite Uhc challenge of her younger and, perhaps, stronger opponents. She began the season early with a series of exhibitions throughout Dixie and her long sessions on the practice tee have honed her game. Defending champion Mickey Wright cannot compete. The 1962-63 winner pulled a tendon in her ankle Feb. 3 at Dallas. Physicians put Miss Wright's leg in a cast for five weeks and it was just last week the lanky slugger tried to play nine holes. Mossi sold to White Sox for $20,000 SARASOTA, Fla. (UPI)-Left- hander Don Mossi made his third stop along the American League circuit Wednesday when he was sold by the Detroit Tigers to the Chicago White Sox for the $20,000 waiver price. The 34-year-old southpaw broke into the majors 10 years ago when be and Ray Narleski formed the nucleus of a bullpen staff that led the Cleveland Indians to the American league championship. In 1958 he was dealt to the Tigers, where he was used primarily as a starter. It is expected that with Chicago he will be assigned to the buUpen once again to supplement right­ hander Hoyt Wilhelm. Last year, he had a 7-7 record and an earned run average of 3.73. Giants win 15-13 over Cleveland By United Press Intemetionil Manager Alvm Dark was grinning broadly Wednesday when his San Francisco Giants led the Cleveland Indians, 15-4, after three innings. The Indians, though, wiped the smile off Dark's face with a strong comeback and had the tying run at the plate in the ninth inning. But it all ended happily for Dark as the Giants outlasted Cleveland, 15-13, in a game that featiured 40 hits, eight errors and 42 participants. San Francisco's "terrible trio" of Willie Mays, Willie McCovey and Orlando Cepeda played only three innings but contributed nine hits and nine RBI's, as the Gi ants picked up their ninth exhibition win in 10 starts. Three of Cleveland's 17 hits were for the distance and came off the bats of Fred Whitfield, Mike De La Hoz and V/aUy Post Sex Nip Seneters The Chicago White Sox scored all their runs in the first three umings and nipped the Washington Senators, 3-2. Relief specialist Hoyt Wilhelm worked three perfect innings allowing only two balls to be hit out of the infield. The New York Mets won their first game of the spring and the New York Yankees got their first exhibition home run. The National Leaguers beat Philadelphia, 4-1, in 10 innings on a pinch - hit smgle by Jim Hickman. Jack Fisher, Tracy StaUard andEd Bauta limited the Phils to five base hits. The Yankees combined Joe Pepi tone's grand slam homer with five Kansas City errors for 9-4 wctory. Hank Aaron powered a home U.S. professionalism worries Olympic leader TOKYO (UPl) — The main handicap to U.S. Olympic hopes is not Russian amateurism but American professionalism, J Lyman Bingham, executive di rector of the U.S. 01 >Tnpic Committee, said today. Bingham also gave a detailed defense of the conduct of Amer-, ican Olympic athletes. He said reports of off-hours high jinks were -'magnified beyond recog- inition." Bingham and Charles L. Ornstein, chairman of the committee's food and housmg committee, are in Tokyo to inspect facilities for the 19frl Olympic Games, to be held here Oct. 10-24. They told a press conference that they have "no complaints' and that the Tokyo Olympics should be '"the best set of games we've ever had."' Bingham was told the Russians have predicted they will win 43 gold medals at Tokyo. He declined to make a prediction for the American team. "We know pretty well what we can do," he said, "but we don't know what the others can do. We had our best team ever at the Innsbruck Wmter. Olympics, and made the worst showing — because the others were improving faster than we were. 'And I hate to compare ourselves with the Russians. They Idon't have professional sports the way we do." Bingham brought up the snl>- ject of reported American escapades at the OljTnpics. Three of the boys on our team at Iimsbruck went to a farewell party for the Polish team, with whom they had tramed," he said. "It was after midnight, but they had finished competition. "According to the reports, they got drunk and stole a car. In fact, what they did was to drive the car the wrong way up one-way street. But the car belonged to a friend of theirs, and a blood test showed no alcohol in their systems." Boros picks Nicklaus as man to beaf in Doral run and a triple in his first two trips to the plate as Milwaukee made it four in a row with 7-4 triumph over Minnesota. SopIiOmore Jim Hall gave the Twins an early advantage with his third ronnd tripper of the exhibition season but three Minnesota infield errors opened the gates for the Braves. Devis Hits Homer National batting champi on Tommy Davis blasted his second homer in as many days as the Dodgers four • bit Baltimore, 3-1. Don Drysdale and Johnny Podres each went four frames and allowed one hit. Ron Pcrranowski worked the last inning. The St Louis Cardinals suffered their first defeat of the spring, 13-4, at the hands of the Detroit Tigers. Newly acquired Don Demeter. got the lagers off on the right foot wth a three nm, first inning triple, as Detroit capitalized on nine walks and 12 hits. Houston blasted Joey Jay and the Cincinnati Reds for a 9-2 victory. Jay was the victim of six run rally which featured double by rookie Ivan Murrell and a pinch • hit single by Walt Bond, hoth of which knocked in two nms. Mack Kuykendall's two run single in the ninth inning MIAMI (UPl) — Julius (.Moose) Boros, the golfer of the year in 1963, named Jack Nick laus as the man they'd all have to beat in 19 &t when play opened today in the $50,000 Doral Invitational golf champion ship. Ten tournaments this year have produced 10 different winners but Boros, who won his second U.S. Open title last year, asserted that Nicklaus appears ready to sprint front and center. 'Arnold Palmer hasn't been playing well and may have enabled the Cubs to edge the Red Sox, 10-9.

"B u t Nicklaus has the game to dominate golf now that the tour is moving onto the good, big courses." Up to now, Boros held, it bas been a "pinball game" on courses which made the early tournaments "nothing but putting contests." 'But now when you get on the courses where you must have all the shots," said the hammering Hungarian, "the cream will come to the top. And there isn 't much better cream around than Nicklaus." A lS3-man field started out a four - day quest this morning for the $7,500 first prize with 15 foreign hopefuls shooting for what would be the first three- in -a -now win for invaders.
