R»dlands Daity Facfs 12-Ilnn,April2 ,ni4 Are Dodgers training for Olympics? By United Press Intcmalionil Are the Los Angeles Dodgers training for the start of another baseball season — or for the Olympic track team? That's what the Minnesota Twins were asking Wednesday after the World Champions literally ran circles around them in scoring a 7-3 victory at Vero Beach, Fla. The Dodger "sprinters" collected five of their 13 hits on drag bunts, stole four bases and clicked off five successful hit-and-run plays. Dashman Maury Wills was in mid-season form as he awed the Twins with a double, two bunt singles and a stolen base. A three-run burst by the Dodgers in the third inning featured a successful drag bunt by Wills, a single by Tommy Davis, a sacrifice fly by Ron Fairly and three stolen bases. Three bunts, including a safe squeeze by pitcher Larry Sherry, helped the champs add a pair in tlie sixth. Pitches One-Hitter Sherry tuned in his top performance of the spring by limiting the Twins to one hit over -the final four innings. Tracy Stallard of the New York Jlets turned in the spring's first victorious complete game by blanking the Cincinnati Heds, 3-0, on six hits. The fast-balling righthand er struck out eight, walked one and didn't allow a Cincinnati runner to reach second base. The Mets scored all their uns in the first five innings off rookie southpaw John Flavin. It was the Reds' fifth straight loss and their 10th in 17 exhibitions. Bob Friend also went the route for the Pittsburgh Pirates but dropped a 4-0 verdict to the Baltimore Orioles. Robin Roberts faced onl y22 batters over the first seven innings and stopped the Pirates with two singles. Harvey Haddix blanked his old Piltsburgh mates in the last hvo frames. Win 10th Straight The Milwaukee Braves won their 10th straight game against American League opposition by riding Hank Aaron's fifth home nm of the training season to a 5-3 triumph over the Chicago AVhite Sox. However, the other half of the White Sox' spUt squad emerged with a 12-7 victory over the Washington Senators, on a seven-run rally in the eighth Inning. Charlie Maxwell drove in four Chicago runs with a triple nada single. In other exhibitions, the SL Louis Cardinals edged the Philadelphia Phillies, 6-5; the New York Yankees downed the Detroit Tigers, 4-2; the Los Angeles Angels scored a comeback 10-7 victory over the San Fran Cisco Giants and the Chicago Cubs turned back the Boston Red Sox, 8-7.

(UPI)—The Los Angeles Angels take on the Chi cago Cubs today in a Cactus League game. The Angels defeated the hot San Francisco Giants Wcdnes day, 10-7, on home runs by Lee Thomas, Charlie Dees and Dick Simpson.

Track team takes on Ramona there Friday Fresh from an inspiring vie tory over tough Chaffey, the Terrier track team will be out' to top another hurdle on the path to the CBL championship when they meet Ramona of Riverside tomorrow at 3 p.m. on the Ramona field. But Ramona will be looking for the upset since they, too, are undefeated in CBL compe tition and bounced Colton 64-40 earlier this week. Coach Bill Cunningham said today that the Terriers came out of their meet with Chaffey in good shape physically and that Steve Huffstutler is returning to top form after his tendon injury. While the coach was not making any predictions, Ramona should have a bad time of it if the Ramona-Colton meet was an example. Redlands should come up with at least two places in the 100 and 220 and walk off with the 880, the mile, the high jump and shot put The hurdles could be a real race since Gary Chapman of Ramona won both highs and lows last week against Colton. His times were 15.2 and 19.7 while Huffstutler beat Chaffey with 15.0 and 19.7 races. However, Huffstutler has run the lows in 18.9 akeady this season.

Parent or Guardian Ray Kring chosen to coach in Turkey By HAL WOOD UPI Sports Writer PITTSBURG. Calif. (UPD- In 1947, youthful Ray Kring got the thrill of his life-fime when he cleared the bar at the 14- foot "barrier" in the West Coast relays at Fresno. But today, Kring is riding higher than that. "1 just got word from the state department that I've been approved for a nine months coaching job in Turkey, starting in the fall," said Kring, for the past six years successful track and field coach at Pittsburg High School Kring is taking a leave-of- absence from his job at Pitts- instructions—with or without the!glass pole. "And it's a wonderful opportunity, not only for myself and the family to see how some of the rest of the world lives," he says. "But a chance to help improve their athletic ability.' Kring made his big splash in the headlines in 1947 with that 14-foot vault with the oU Uped bamboo pole. He tied for the championship with three other men, including Goinn Smith, who later went on to win the Olympic championship with a leap of just an inch and a half higher. "But shortly after that the I metal poles came out," he said. burg to see what he can do' about improving the track and field technique of the Turks. The State Department is pa>ing me the same salary that I would receive here," says Ray. "But I'm taking my wife and four children along too. However, there is no income tax there, so what I'll save on income tax will nearly take care of their ti-ansportation costs." What Kring doesn't know about the Turks would fill a large book. And what he doesn't know about the language is as- tronomicaL But he figures that anybody can follow coaching!".^d then along comes this spoken word. "I'm not taking anything away from the fellows on the glass poles. But it is an entirely different event now. It takes an entirely different tj-pe of athlete to be a pole vault champion these days." Will he be teaching with the glass pole in Turkey? "I don't know a thing about what sort of equipment we'll have," he says. "Only I know glass poles are very expensive. The prices run better than $50 to $75 each. His coach once told me that Oklahoman J.D. Martin broke 50 glass poles in one year when he was in his prime. "I'm certain the Turkish economy would take a dim view of that" U.R. loses to Santa Barbara The University of Redlands tennis team fell upon a dark day yesterday in a match, with the University of California at Santa Barbara.

This occurs almost concurrently with a lowering of my left shoulder and the return of my right elbow to my side, which insures that my clubhead will return to the ball from "inside" the target line and produce the right-to-left spin X desire on the ball. If this downward pull of the left hand and arm occurs first in the downswing — even before my clubhead starts its return move—my wrist cock vrtll automatically increase slightly. My hands will now definitely be leading the clubhead, a relationship I wish to preserve until impact. Hark back to the time as a youngster when you played "crack the whip." If you were at the end of the line, you would continue running in the original direction until the whip "cracked." The same thing happens at the start of_ the downswing. When your left hand—the "leader"—reverses direction by low-| ering, the clubhead continues its backswmg move — just as the last youngster did on the "whip." Then suddenly the whipping action reaches the clubhead as it begins its return to the ball. Gradually, as the wrists begin to uncock, the clubhead continues to build up momentum. At impact the wrists have un cocked fully and the clubhead whips through the ball at maximum speed. DOWNWAKDpnllof left hand and am oeeim.lint. This whipping action of the clubhead vriU be increased ad ditionally if your head does not move forward toward the target] on the downswing.

Then tilings get worse. After three days and 12 games at St. John's University this weekend, the 20 - man Olympic Committee will select 12 of the players and sue alternates to represent the United States in the Olympic games at Tokyo this October. What perplexes the participants is how the U. S. has remained undefeated in Olympic competition (38-0 since 1936) with a basketbaU which is larger and heavier than the ones in use throughout the nation, and under international rules, considerably different from those in vogue here. While working out with the "new" ball Wednesday most of the players agreed it conld best be described as "an oversized soccer balL" It is made of 12 panels, stitched together, and it often takes funny bounces. There were complaints it was hard to control. The international rules require a 30 second clock, much like the 24 second clock in professional basketball, which requires the offensive team to shoot within the specified time. There is no midcourt line, thus there are no backcourt violations, the three - second zone under basket is expanded and foul shooting is held to a minimum by a number of rules. The player only goes to the foul line if he is fouled in the act of shooting and misses ... imtil the last five minutes, when all fouls are penalized with two shots. Hank Iba, the veteran Oklahoma State coach who passed the 700 victory mark this past season, will be the head coach of the U. S. team when it's finally assembled.
