Redlands Daily Facts^ 6-Sahirday,Mar.28,1!t4 Woodeshick shows how to do it United Prtts International Hal Woodeshick returns to the bullpen today after giving Houston Colt pitchers a lesson in how a job ought to be started. The 31-year-oId left-hander showed 'em how a job should be ended all last season when his 11-9 record and 1.97 earned run average in 55 appearances made him one of the National League's top relief pitchers. Manager Harry Craft decided it would be a good idea to let Hal show the boys how to han die the other end of the pitch ing assignment Friday and the result was a glittering effort in which Woodeshick pitched five hitless innings in a 6-4 victory over the Kansas City Athletics. Raymond Checks A's Woodeshick tired in the sixth • inning and the Athletics scored three runs by Claude Raymond took over and held Kansas City the rest of the way. Eddie Hasko paced the Colts' attack with a homer.- Only two other exhibition games were played on Good Friday — the Baltimore Orioles defeating the New York Mcts, 7-2, at Miami, Fla., and the Los Angeles Dodgers' reserves topping the Dodger minor leaguers, 2-1, at Vero Beach, Fla. Galen Cisco walked over the tie-breaking run in the eighth inning and the Orioles went on to tally four more runs. The rally, helped along by an error by Met catcher Jesse Gonder, snapped a 2-2 tie produced by Met Homers by Duke Snider and Larry Elliot and Baltimore homers by John Powell and Dick Brown. Johnny Podrcs, one of the Dodgers' key starting pitchers, • allowed only three hits in seven innings in pitching the minor leaguers to a win over the Los Angeles reserves. Bill Parlier homered for the minor leaguers and Roy Gleason drove home the second run with a double off Pete Richert Other Camps News from the other camps was routine as most teams took the day off: The Cubs intensified then- efforts to deal for a second baseman to replace the late Ken Hubbs, killed in a pre spring training plane accident .. .Catcher Joe Torre, who signed JIarch 19 after a lengthy iioldout, will make his starting debut for the Milwaukee Braves against the Cincinnati Reds today. Frank Howard, the reluctant slugging star of the Dodgers, notified Vice President E. J. (Buzzie) Bavasi that he has been detained by bad flying weather in Chicago.. .American League champion New York Yankees were miffed when they made a 50-mile bus trip from Ft. Lauderdale to Sarasota, Fla., only to discover the Chicago White Sox had called off their scheduled exhibition game. Manager Sam Mele says he has not decided wheUier Bob Allison or Vic Power will be the Minnesota Twins' regular first baseman.. Julio Gotay, fighting for utility infield job with Pittsburgh Pirates, leads club in spring traming with .582 average. . .Manager Gil Hodges of the Washington Senators says lie may carry 13 pitchers this year. Was Carbo calling shots in Liston-Clay fiasco? WASHINGTON (UPI) — Was convict Frankie Carbo the UU' seen manager calling the shots in both comers for Sonny LiS' ton and Cassius Clay in their Feb. 25 heavyweight tiUe fiasco? Sen. Kenneth Keating R-N.Y. believes Broadway's one-time "man in gray" now wearing the pinstripes of San QuenUn may have "reached out from behind prison bars and placed his cohorts in both the Listen and Clay camps" — and aims to try to prove it. Keating announced Friday night that he will urge the Sen ate committee mvestigating the Listen - Clay whateveritwas to look into a "boxing apalachin conference" that may link Carbo to both fighters. I thmk it is most essential that we discover whether Frankie Carbo bas reached out from beyond prison bars and placed his cohorts in both the Listen and Clay camps," said Keating, who revealed he has evidence of a high-echelon meeting ol Carbo and alleged lieutenants held in Washington on March 19, 1958. Carbo, long beUeved to be the underworld czar of bo.x- ing, has been serving time on various counts of conspiracy and under - cover managing since 1960. Keatmg said he had information that Carbo, Sam ilargoUs of Philadelphia and Angelo Dundee of Miami Beach, Fla., the latter a trainer and advisor of Clay, presided over the 1958 "Apalaehin-type" meeting which also incliided Frank (BUnky) Palermo of Philadelphia, Benja min Magliano of Philadelphia, Benny Trotta of Baltimore, Dominic Mordini and Billy Snyder and Tony Ferrante ol Broun of New York and Mike Philadelphia. "Fortunately," said Keating, "the record of what was said at that meeting, including dis cussions concerning the future of Sonny Liston, was kepi by two undercover agents of the New York City police depart ment and described in some de tai on pages 651-660 of the December, 1960, hearings of this subcommittee. "In addition," said Keating. "I am informed that there is some additional evidence stemming from New York investigation Unking the figures in the Clay - Liston camps with the Carbo combine." Margolis, a Philadelphia vending machine operator, was given 275 shares of Liston's stock in Intercontinental Promotions, Inc., the corporation which promotes Liston fights, before the bout wiUi Clay. It also was disclosed after the Feb. 23 bout at Miami Beach- in which Liston surrendered the title while silting on his stool when the bell rang for the seventh round—that Clay's camp had paid 550,000 to Liston's camp to guarantee that Liston's Yerdieck upset in Dudley Cup matches Redlands High neUer Doug Verdieck, top-seeded in the 16 and UHder division of the Dud ley Cup matches in Santa Mon ica, was upset by Tom Leon ard of Pasadena. Leonard scored a 4-6, 6-1, 7-5 victory. Verdieck and his partner, Ron Bohmstedt moved to the semi-finals in the 18 and under doubles before being knocked out. The doubles duo downed Amador • Amador 6-1, 6-3 and •ndbaU - Fudacz 6-4, 6-4 before faUing to Lutz - Lutz 6-2, 6-4. In a singles match Bohmstedt lost to Ed Grubb of San ta Monica 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 in the third round. Floyd Patterson, to fight Machen in Stocl(holm Intercontinental Promotions could pick the first challenger for the title in the event that Clay won it. Might win pennant Lopez sees great chance for White Sox (EDITOR'S NOTE: This Is the 12th of 20 dispatches en the 19i4 prospects of the major league baseball teams). By LEO H. PETERSEN UPl Sports Editor SARASOTA, Fla. (UPI) There is some ground for sus picion that for the third time in 13 years manager Al Lopez could be right when he predicts his Chicago Whife So.v will win the 1964 American League pen nant. His club appears to have the pitching. It may, however, fall short in hitting and catching and have a problem at second base. The Gay Senor doesn't think ). "We have a great chance to beat the Yankees and everyone else," he predicts. When remind ed that he has predicted each spring smce he became an American League manager in 1959 that his club would \\in the pennant, he smiles and recalls: "Well, I was right twice and I honesUy believe this will be the third time." Wins Two Pennants The only two times the Yank ees have lost the pennant since he began managing in the IR0R6ETTEI *^!^?«^»#?^5te^rOPEN CHAMPION 15 -HAND LAG The wists cock or hinge gradually on the backswing. I feel that I am resisting Uiis early hinging in my swing because I definitely do not want my hands to lag. A premature cocking of the urists would also bring about an early lifting of the clubhead and a narrowing of my swing arc. The movement of the hands on the takeaway should be combined with a tilting and turning of the shoulders and body. This tilting of the form will cause the clubhead to raise and the wrists to cock gradually and automatically during the b a c k- swing. The path which the hands describe on tiie backswing determines to a great extent the direction in which your shot will fly. I imagine that my hands are traveling along a path that goes around tay right side. This helps me move my hands so that the clubhead automatically swings back "inside" the intended line of flight When it returns along this same path on the downswing, it will impart the right- to-left spin on the ball that I desire. I can tell if my hands are going back in the groove after hitting a few full shots during warmup sessions. I swing with out concentrating on my hands. If the ball is flying wiUi a slight draw, I make no adjustment of my hand pattern on the back- swing. If the ball is drawing too RESIST taffy hinging of wiists to avoid hand ia£. much I work on my backswing hand path. I take my hands back a bit straighter, although still inside the intended line. If my shots are flying straight or fading, I move my hands more inside — more around my side — until my shots again achieve Uie right-to-left draw pattern I like. (Trom the book. "Par Golf or Belter" by Julini Boroi. Copyriiht by PrtnUce-B»n. Inc., Englewood OiiSi, N.JJ league was in 1934. when he led the Cleveland Indians, and in 1939 when he skippered the White So.\. Pitching is- his ace in the hole. "It will he the best in the league again," insi.sis Lopez, "just as it was in 1963." John Buzhardt didn't pitch al all after mid-season because of a shoulder injury; Juan Pizarro missed the last five weeks; Frank Baumann was sidelined for almost two months; and Joe Horlen and Dave Debusschcre each missed a couple of weeks. Yet the White Sox hurling staff showed an earned run average of 2.97 and two of its oUier pitchers finished one-two in the earned run department. Gary Peters led with 2.33 and bis 19-8 record won his rookie of the year honors in the AL. Pizarro, like Peters a left hand cr, was second at 2.39. He won 16 games while losing eight. Lopez admits the White Sox took a chance when they trad ed away second baseman Nellie Fo.v and says the only reason they did was because they felt sure that rookie Don Buford was ready to take his place. The rest of the infield is set with Joe Cunningham at first. Ron Hansen at short and Pete Ward at Uiird. Ward it Uie big man of that trio, having hit .295 in his tookie year with 22 home runs and 84 runs batted in. High On Nicholson In outfielder Dave Nicholson, the White So.-t feel they have one of baseball's future greats. The 27-year old Nicholson, a faihire as a bonus player with Baltimore, was given an every day job by I^opez last year and responded by driving in 70 runs and hitting 22 home runs, al though his batting average was only .229. He also stiuck out 175 times. Nicholson has the left field job. The oUjer outfied spots are open. It will be either Jim Lan dis, a fine fielder but erratic hitter, or Mike Hershberger in center. TOichever one loses out could shar the right field spot with Floyd Robmson. There are two catchers—Camilo Carreon, who did most of tlie heavy duly last year, and J.C. Martin, the converted in fielder. Martin is Lopez' big hope there. Martin hit only .259, but Lo pez says that was because he was concentrating too much on mastering the art of catching. "He's a better hitter than that," Lopez contends. He'd better be or Uie White Sox may fall short in the power department. But not according to Lopez. He sees only the American League pennant ahead. NEW YORK (UPl) — Floyd Patterson and Eddie Machen have been matched for a 12- round heavyweight elimination fight at Stockholm. Sweden, in July—"wiUi one proviso"-the co-promoters announced today. The provisio is that ex-champ ion Patterson has the privilege of accepting a title fight with Casstus Oay until late ncsl week when contracts for the Patterson - JIachcn bout are scheduled to be signed in New- York. Announcement of the fight was made by co-promoters Ed win Ahlqvist at Stockholm and Al Bolan in New York. They staged Floyd's latest fight on Jan. 12 at Stockholm's indoor Johanneshov Stadium, where the e.\-champ stopped Sante Amonti of Italy in the eighth round. A.sellout 12.000 attended. The Patlerson-Machen "eUm- inator" will be slated for outdoors before "at least 40.000 ! spectators" in July at Stock •holm's old Oi}-mpic Stadium or ; .-It the Raasunda Soccer Stadium. Ahlqvist said. Bolan, who was associated !with the promotion of Paltcr- I son's last five championship bouts, insisted upon the Clay title-fight proviso because Bolan has offered Clay a guarantee of $750,000 to defend against Floyd. "I still hope to hear from Clay and manager Bill Faversham before Ahlqvist flies to New York for the Patterson- Machen signing next week," Bolan said. Cd Western wins SAN DIEGO (UPI)-Cal West- era rolled up a 7-2 non-conference baseball victory over Montana State Friday, behind Uie three-hit pitching of Lee MacFarland.

(UPI)Joe Campbell of Perdido Bay, Fla., took a one-stroke lead into the second round of the $200,000 Azalea Open golf tournament today, possibly thankful for a tree root that caused him to batter his thumb in Phoenix, Ariz., last month. Campbell, who hurt the thumb when his club hit a root during the Phoenix Open, missed the sixth and seventh tourneys on the 1964 PGA circuit and said the rest was a big help in getting him a five-imder-par 67 in the first round of the .\zalea Friday. The 67, one stroke better than Bob Gajda of Bluefield Hills., Mich., was the result of a soUd round of golf in which Campbell was never faced with long distance putting. AH but one of his drives or approach shots hit the greens and his longest putt was a 12-footer. It was Campbell's best round of Uie 1964 tour and he freely admitted that "Oie rest possibly did me some good." He scored five birdies, no bogies, with putts of five, 12, two. six, and four feet. His longest par putt was a mere 12 inches. Gajda was pressed by five more pros and a young ama teur from Rocky Mount, N.C, all of whom posted 69s over the course at the Cape Fear Coun- Uy Club. The amateur, Ed Jus ta, posted his 69 and was the only amateur among the 10 entered in the 160-player field who posed a threat to the professionals. Also at 69 were Jack McGowan, Largo, Fla.; Tommy Jacobs. Burmuda Dunes, Calif; Don Fairfield, Perdido Bay, Fla.; and Dutch Harrison, St. Louis. Three strokes off were 1 Louis. Tlu-ee strokes off were 13 pros — Dave Ragan, Orlando, Fla.; Gene LitUer, La Jolla, Calif.; George Bayer, Incline Village, Nev.; Cotton Dunn, Duncan, Okla.; Gene Briggs, Nashville, Tenn.; Bob Bruno, Countryside, 111.; Dean Refrara, Boca Raton, Fla.; Bill Collins, Grossingers, N.Y.; Lionel Hebert, Lafayette, La.; Al Besse- lin, Jlerchantville, N.Y., Tommy Arron, Gainesville, Fa.; and Bruce Devlin, Canvera, Aus- traUa.

(UPI)Yale anchored its upset hopes of favored Indiana today on lightning Steve Clark and his fellow freestylers in the biggest record-breaking swimming and diving meet in National Collegiate Athletic -Association championship history. The field has more than lived up to its claim of being the strongest ever, smashing NCA records in all five events Friday night and in three of four swimming events Thursday night More records are expected to tumble tonight when powerful Indiana, which saw its team lead cut to two points by run- nerup Yale Friday night, tests its e.xpected dominance in the three-meter diving, the 100-yard breaststroke, 100-yard butterfly and 100-yard backstiroke.

Olson offered light-heavy title bout Moeller and Brewer on mound for LA. BRADENTOWN, Fla. (UPI) Joe Moeller and Jim Brewer shared the mound duties today as the Los Angeles Dodgers meet the Kansas City Athletics in a spring training exhibition amc. The Dodgers took the day off Friday from Grapefruit League play, but in an intra squad game, Johnny Podres pitched five hiUess innings before Wes SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) — Carl (Bobo) Olson, a decade ago monarch of the middleweights, was offered a fight today for the world fight-heavyweight boxmg championship. The aging battier, balding and 35, toyed with highly regarded Wayne Thornton Friday night to win a 10-round decision on a nationally televised show from Kezar Pavilion. "Now I'd like to have Bobo fight for the championship in New York," said matchmaker Teddy Brenner of Madison Square Garden. Champion Willie Pastrano defends his crown agamst Goyo Peralta of Argentina in New Orleans on April 10. Olson, it is hoped, will batUe the winner of that one. And tiiat's what I've been straggling for," said Bobo after file batUe. "I want to get back- into the big money." The Thornton bout went down as a split decision because Judge Bob Mitchell called it a draw. But Judge Jack Downey had it 6-3-1 for the winner and referee Vera Bybee had it 7-2-1. United Press InteraaUonal bad it 8-2. It was a good batUe, with neither man backing up. But Olson's experience in the infighting paid off—and Thornton admitted that. "He never hurt me," said th« loser. "But I never hurt him. He's a very experienced and clever boxer who has the ability to beat anyone. You can't discount him." Parker got to him for a double with two out. Podres gave up his only run in the seventh frame when Dick Nen doubled and Jeff Torborg singled. Heyman learns how to be a loser NEW YORK (UPI) — There is a difference between educa tion and learning, the kind of difference that can develop a star college athlete into a good professionaL Ar Heyman, who received his education at Duke, got a post-graduate course in learning this year during his fresh man season in the National Basketball Association. That he now understands the distinction ensures a long professional career for the highly - touted youngster. Perhaps the most important] thing Heyman learaed was how| to be a loser, a most unfortunate fact of life but nevertheless a yearly ritual when one wears the uniform of the New York Knickerbockers. "It's the first time I've ever been on a losing team," Heyman said today. "When we were losing so much at first 1 kept getting down on myself. I've always been used to being with a winner and this constant losing came as a jolt. "But I learned to get used to losing. If you don't, you get [buried under." There is a lot more of the professional in Heyman's manner than when he first reported to the Enicks. Basketball, a fun game for him ever since his childhood days in Rockville Centre, N.Y., is now his livelihood. The game is no longer merely played; it is constantly studi^, analyzed and worried over. Early in the season, when he was having trouble adjusting to a backcourt role, Heyman indicated he might quit the Knicks when his contiract ran out and go to law schooL "There is no sense domg something when you don't enjoy it," Heyman said. "I'm not having any fun out of playing at aU." Hard work, on the part of Heyman as well as Knick Coach Eddie Donovan and teammate Tom Gola, finally paid its dividend and in the fi nal two months of the season Heyman was playing with con fidence. He has a positive outlook about the Knicks and wants to be a part of their future. Most of the problem was that at six feet, five inches, Heyman was of excellent size for a forward position at Duke. He was extremely aggressive under the boards and picked up most of his points driving to flie basket Unfortunately for him, he was too small to-continue this style of play in the bigger pro league and was switched to guard. The fact that this was a strange position for him and that he didn't have a developed set shot hurt his play and his confidence. "You've got to go on to the court with confidence," said the Knicks' No. 1 draft choice. You've got to go out to shoot, you can't leave it to the next guy. I lacked confidence at first but I've got it now. Donovan kept telling me I was as good as the next guy and after a while it began to smk in. "I accepted Uie fact that I couldn't go under the boards like I did in college. I also made up my mind to develop a good outside shot I've been very lucky in that Tom (Gola) has taken a lot of effort to help me learn everything I must know." Heyman was the greatest scorer in Duke history with 1,984 points in three varsity seasons for an over-all average of 25.1 points in 79 games. In his first season in the NBA, Heyman averaged 15.4 points per game, but was consistently scoring over 20 in the final weeks. The education will continue even though the season is over and so will the learning. Heyman will return to Durham, N.C, this summer to attend law school. In his spare hours he'll be practicing his set shot.
