BiiiShawver stars in Las Vegas meet Young Bill Shawver captured two first place trophies and five other Bedlands swimmers from the Redlands Swim club gained ribbons and experience at the Las Vegas Invitational Swim Meet over the weekend. Kedlands swimmers witnessed the dedication ot a new 25-meter pool at Jim Bridger Jr. high school where the A.A.U.-sanctioned meet was held. The young Redlands swim mers idaced first in the U-12 age group in the 200-meter med ley relay but because of a tech nicality were disqualified. However, the same team came back in the 200-meter freestyle relay to place third in 2:14.8. The relay team consisted ol Bill Shawver, Larry Boxer, Phillip Davis and Bruce Kocsis. In the individual events, here's the rundown on Red lands swimmers: Bill Shawver (9-10 age group) took first in the 100-meter freestyle and 50 meter fly, was 3rd in the 50-meter back and 4th in the SO meter breast. Bruce Kocsis (11-12 age) was 4th in 100-meter back, 5th in 100-meter firee, 5th in 200-meter individual medley, 6th in 100 meter breast and 7th in 100 meter fly. Larry Boxer (11-12) placed 6th in the 100 meter free and completed in three other events.

By LEO H. PETERSEN UPl Sports Editor MUMI, Fla. (UPI) — The Baltimore Orioles have been waitmg in line for ten years and their new manager. Hank Bauer, thinks the time has come when they might step out in front He says his club "has a good shot" at the 1964 American League pennant provided: Our players live up to expectations. I don't mean that any of them have to have outstanding years, just the good ones they are capable of having." The best the Orioles have been able to do since they came into the league in 1954 is second place finish in 1960. match medalist with 40 but Jim|Last year, with Billy Hitchcock as manager and Hank as Hovanas of Yucaipa was close behind with 42. Other Yucaipa scores were Robert Sigler, 44; Dave Mathews, 44; Fred Cromer, 47 and C. J. Catalano, 53. Coach Mike Lagather said the first Desert Valley League match for his fledglings will be Friday, April 10, against Indio, also at the Garden Air course. Palmer looks for first win GREENSBORO, N.C. (UPI)Amold Palmer, looking for his first victory on the current tour, was to arrive here today to warm up for the Greater Greensboro Open, the final tuneup before the famed Mas ter's tournament in Augusta. Palmer, plagued by putting troubles all season and in one of his worst slumps in recent years, and reigning Masters aai PGA champion Jacklaus, who also is expected here to day, wiU enter the $35,000 tour nament as co-favorites. Palmer, Nicklaus and about 100 other golfers were exempt teom qualifjing for the tournament ^ch opens Thursday. A field of 150 is expected for the 72-hole event coach, they finished fourth, 18V4 games behind the New York Yankees. That finish cost Hitchcock his job and gave Bauer, the former Yankee outfield star, his second chance to manage. He didn't do well in his first one, with the Kansas City Athletics, but explains, "I didn't have the horses then. I do now." Slightly OpKmittic Bauer's appraisal may be a little overly optimistic. He seems to have the horses so far as pitching is concerned but could pull up short in the power department It's been the lack of batting power that has kept the Orioles from winning in the past Norm Siebem will be at first base in the 1964 Oriole scheme of things. Jerry Adair will be at second and then come the two other infielders whom Bauer maintams "form the best left side of the infield in the league." It has fleet Luis Apa ricio at shortstop and Brooks Robinson at third. Robinson, who usually wields a big bat, tailed off in 1963, hitting only .251. "Naturally," says Bauer, "he'll have to get back in the hittmg groove or we're lost" That's because his outfield. which is e-xpected to provide most of a club's batting power, may not completely measure up. The Orioles added Willie Kirkland from the Cleveland Indians in the hope he would supply some power. But Kirkland hit only .230 wth the Indians and his 15 home runs and 47 runs batted ia left a lot to be desired. Counting on Powell The big outfield hope is John (Boog) Powell. Powell hit only .265 last season but rapped out 25 homers and had 82 runs driven in. With Powell in right and Kirkland in left, that leaves Jackie Brandt for center. His glove is good, his bat mediocre. Bauer likes his catching with John Orisno, who came on fast last year, and Dick Brown sharing the duties. He likes his pitching, too, as well he should. In left-handed Steve Barber (20-13), the Orioles have one of the best in the game. To start along with him they have right banders Robin Roberts (14-13), Milt Pappas (16-9) and southpaws Dave McNally (7-8) and Mike McCormick (6-8). For spot starting assignments and long relief there is Dick HaU (5-5). Stu Miller (5-8) is the bullpen specialist and West Stock (7-0) w1U be in there with him. Harvey Haddix, the Pittsburgh Pirates' castoff, would make it as the left-handed relief pitcher.

Individual scores turned in by the five Bedlands team players were: Dick Freeman, 35; Brian Schwartz, 36; Randy Weaver, 40; Mike Malone, 41, and Phil Merchant, 42. LA. builds up September pre-Olympics LOS ANGELES (UPI) — The Olympic year's track and field competition in Southern California will be climaxed by a major effort to make the final trials for the Tokyo games in September a meet of international stature, the host group disclosed today. Bill Henry, president of the Southern CaUfomia Committee for the Olympic Games, announced to the Track and Field Writers and Coaches Association that two of the top men in the field of staging track meets would be in charge of the final Olympic Trials Sept 12-13 in the Coliseum. The two-day trials in which men who made the U.S. team must prove they are the top performers in their events will be put on by Bill Nicholas as general chairman and Hilmer Lodge as meet director, Henry Frank Laiy heads for comeback By United Press InftmaHenel When someone asks Chuck Dressen about Detroit's pennant chances, he begins by detailing how the Tigers obtained Jerry Lumpe, Don Demeter and Dsve Wickersham in trades and he ends with the usual "if' before Frank Lary's name. Well, no one has come right out and predicted the '.'if" is about to disappear from all conversation about Lary, but then baseball people are super-l stitious that way. They don't] take chances on subjects like sore-armed pitchers. Lary, however, has been pitching excellent ball this spring, induding a strong six- inning stint in Monday's 6-3 By one stroke Besselink shrugs off triple bogey, wins Borrows $2 bet, wins record $81,181 payoff HALLANDALE, Fla. (UPI)A Washington, D.C. tourist went to the track for the first time in 20 years Monday, bet two dollars of the twenty she borrowed on the twin double and won $81,181.80. The payoff was the second highest in U.S. track history. Two Miami Beach resort cooks won $84,114.20 earUer in the Gulfstream meeting. Mrs. Marion Jones said "my creditors sure will be happy." She bet one $2 ticket that the said. AU international rules will be followed using the pattern of the U.S.-Russian dual meet that takes place here in July, he added. The Olympic meet comes only two weeks before the team's departure for Tokyo and will be major sendoff to the U.S. competitors, Henry said. But before staging the final trials, the Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games is directing its attention to the Coliseum Relays May IS, one of the top jewels in the series of major track events. Among those extended invita lions through the AAU were Peter Snell, BiU Baillie, Gaston Roelants and Ron Clarke, among the world's top distance runners. Other ranking track and field features of the year include the Mt San Antonio relays next month and the Compton Invita tional meet in June, along with the U.S.-Russian meet The influx of foreign stars for the invitational meets and international competition has been preceded by the arrival of two international performers. The track writers were told by coach Jim Bush of Occidental College that New Zealand's Doreen Porter, famed woman sprinter, would work out with his team for the next few months. Bush toured New Zealand last winter and the young coach agreed to help Miss Porter if she came here. And John Olafsson of Iceland is working with the Southern California Striders to improve his high jumping before trying out for his country's Olympic team. The week's track schedule includes two Big Six meets here Saturday when Southern California meets Washington State and UCLA entertains California. Daryll Pipkin of California State at Los Angeles got the nod as the track athlete of the week for marks of :20.9 and .-48.4 «s well as a fast relay anchor lap in the Easter relays. And La Verne College freshman Rich Roberts was named field athlete for pole vaulting 15-feet-5 in the Claremont Relays. vctory over C^cinnati. Plagued by arm trouble since his 23-9 record in 1961, Lary appears headed for a comeback this season. He has worked 19 innings this spring, more than any other Tiger pitcher, and his earned run average is 1.89. Allows Tw* Hits In Monday's game, he allowed just two hits and one run. Lary was the winning 3-9-34 combination would win the fifth, sixth, eighth and ninth races. It was the only ticket to correctly name the four winners. The winners were Hy Jeep, which paid $32.80 for a $2 win in the fifth race. Snead will be in Masters first 10 By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer MLUG (UPI) - Jack Kick laus will be the favorite when they tee it up in the Mas tors next week but a pretty good bet is for old Slammin' Sammy Snead to finish in the first 10 when the final putt has been holed. Snead's failures in the U.S. Open are legendary. Four times he has finished second and another time he booted it clean away on the final hole with a resounding eight on the 72nd hole in 1939 which is one of the most sorrowful golf stories of aU time. But from a reverse position, the divot derring-do of the 51- year-old from the V^ginia hills has been phenomenal in the Masters. is the 27 previous Masters tournaments Sam has won the title three times against the best in the world and finished m the first 10 on 15 occasions. Thousands wiU watch the 1964 renewal of the Masters at Augusta National Golf Clvb from April 9 through April 12. It's a safe bet that millions will see the television action from 5 to 6 p.m EST on April 11 and from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on April 12. The focus wUl, of course, be on the leaders. In "reading the green" you would have to guess that Nicklaus will be right in the thick of things and, at 24, well may become the first Master to win two in a row. There are a lot of others "on" their game like Billy Casper, Tony Lema, Rex Baxter, Masco Rudolph, Gary Player and Jay Hebert It also is the kind of a challenge which might bring Arnold Palmer back onto his game in time to make a big run at the jackpot The feeling among his fellow pros is that Palmer had too far to come back. He has been scrambling madly and admits that he doesn't know just what is wrong. But they also hold in the profession that once he grabs his touch again it will be Katy bar the door, because Arnie is working on his game with all the grim determination of the days before he became "The King." Palmer's seven-year mark in the Masters borders on the fantastic, too. In that brief period he has scored three victories, in 1958, 1960 and 1962, and he also has finished second and and third. ' Yet Snead's record is even lore fantastic and, actually, you don't have to limit it to the Masters. In his career he has captured 114 tournaments, including the recent PGA Seniors, and moved in at the recent Doral Invitational for a fourth-place tie behind Casper, iNieklaus and Baxter. Snead placed second in the Masters in 1939 and in 1963, 24 years later, the Ty Cobb of golf tied for third place. Over the years in addition to bis three wins he has been second twice, third on four occasions, fourth once, sixth once, seventh three times and eighth once. The Open is a mental block with him. If they played it at Augusta next week he might as well stay home. But, it being the Masters, the best bet you can make is that old Slamnun' Sam will be somewhere in the top 10. pitcher thanks to Lumpe who hit two triples and batted in two runs. Detroit also won a "B" game batUe with tiie Reds, 4-3. The Tigers had 13 hits off Jim O'Toole, including a home run by George Thomas. Vem Law, another "sore armer" trying to make a comeback with Pittsburgh this sea son, retired the first eight Minnesota batters, but suddenly lost his touch and the powerful Twins went on to beat the Pirates, 7-3, Jimmie Hall connected for lus sixth home run of the spring to put the Twins ahead to stay. Earl Battey also connected for the Twins. Law allowed all seven runs on 10 hits. Tony Ctom"gliaro, the sensa tion of the West this season, kept it up today by lining an important double which enabled Boston to tie the Chicago Cubs and then win it 8-7, on a home run by rookie Tony Horton. Yankeat Down Phils Whitey Ford pitched three scoreless innings for New York as the Yankees defeated the Philadelphia Phillies, 4-2. Dennis Bennett went seven innings for Philadelphia, allowing two nms and five hits. Jack Bald schun, who relieved, took the loss. The Baltimore Orioles scored nine runs in the 10th inning and defeated the Washington Senators, 14-5. Ed Roebuck retired the first batter in the ninth, but then came the rally and the Senator rehever was on the mound the whole way. A bloop double down the left field line with two out in the 12th inning gave the Los Ange les Dodgers a 7-6 victory over the New York Mets. Forty-six players saw action in the 3V4 hour game. The Chicago White Sox scored two runs without a hit off Bob Gibson and defeated the St Louis Cardhials, 2-1. Ray Sa decki relieved Gibson in the eighth after the Cardinal starter lost his own game due to wildness and his two errors The White Sox wound up with just three hits. Milwaukee rallied for three runs in the top of the seventh inning to defeat Kansas City, 4-1. Lew-Krausse pitched the first seven innings for Kansas City and was relieved by John O'Donoghue who took the loss WILMn;GTON, N.C. (UPI)Big AI Besselink headed for the Greensboro Open today bol stered by a big dose of self- confidence and a check for $2,700. Besselink, a 6-foot-4, 39-year- old pro from Merchantville, N.J., who hadn't won a touma ment since way back in 1957, shrugged off a triple bogey Monday in the final roimd of the Azalea Open to finish a stroke ahead of nmnerup. Lionel Hebert of Lafayette, La. WiUj that triple bogey on the 17th hole, Besselink shot a three-over-par 75 for a 72-hole 282—six under par. It was his first win since the 1957 Kansas City Open. Moreover, it was his first win smcc he hurt his hand and was forced into developing a sophis- [ticated swing instead of a powerful punch. Lionel Hebert, who had three consistent rounds of two-under- par 70 and a final roiud 73, struggled with the wind and his dissatisfaction with the greens, which he said were too slow. He took second prize money worth $1,800. Tommy Jacobs of Bermuda Dimes, Calif., shot a final roimd 74 to finish at 2Si and third prize money of $1,500. Low card of the final round was turned in by veteran Billy Casper of Corona, Calif., at an even par 72. This gave Casper, winner of the Doral Invitation al at Miami a week previous, a four round total of 285. He was tied with Larry Mowry of Portland, Ore., and both picked up checks for $1,250.

LOUIS (UPI) - Los Angeles Coach Fred Schaus took his hat off today to the high- jumping St Louis Hawks who controUed the boards to dump the Lakers. 121-108. and advance to Uie NBA Western Division playoffs against San Francisco. Coach Harry GaUa tin's Hawks worked a new brand of baU Monday night against Los Angeles and out-rebounded the Lakers 66-52. Schaus. feeUng gkx>m in the dressing room, [found praise for the Hawks. "In the four years that we've been playing them," Schaus said, "this was the best sustained 48 minute effort I've ever seen the Hawks have." Schaus said the Lakers 'didn't play that bad, you know." He pointed to the box score which showed the Hawks out-rebounded his club by 14, "which is more than we could afford." Big Bob Pettit puUed down 20 rebounds for the Hawks while Uie Lakers' Elgin Baylor couM muster only 11. GaUatin noted that "the good thuig was our fast break" which worked to perfection, particularly in the final period when the Hawks raced to keep ahead of the threatening Lakers. GaUatin explained his strategy for the rubber game. •We got CUff Hagen t o release (not to rebound) on Baylor and get downcourt," he said. "But you gotta get the ball to score in this game and Pettit reaUy worked the boards. Pettit got it and Hagen put it in." Len Wilkins with 30 points was high for Hawks foUowed by Hagen wiUi 29.
