Durocher signed Castillo beats Lara Phoenix, Sat.. Aug. 15,1970 O CITY The Arizona Republic 75 to new contract CinCAGO (AP) - Leo Durocher, still colorful and controversial at 64, was given a vote of confidence by owner Phil Wrigley yesterday in the form of a 1971 contract to continue managing the Chicago Cubs. Terms were not disclosed. At the same time, Durocher hired an old buddy and one of hJ3 former New York Giant poaches, Herman Franks, ex- San Francisco Giant manager, as a Cub coach. Franks replaces Joe Becker, who collapsed with heart trouble at Wrigley Field Wednesday. "Yes, you could say this was a vote of confidence," Wrigley told The Associated Press. "I think Leo has done an excellent job." Durocher, after a 10-year managerial hiatus, was hired by Wrigley to take over the down-trodden Cubs in 1966. Leo's first season under a three-year contract found the Cubs finishing 10th and last in the National League. But in 1967, Durocher perked the Bruins to a first division finish for the first time in 20 years, taking third. That year, Leo's contract was extended through 1969 and in January, 1969, Wrigley signed Durocher through 1970. As ever, Leo was not at loss for words, asserting: "It's great to be invited back by Mr. Wrigley and Trio tapped by PPBA Three Valley high school journalists have been awarded $1,000 college scholarships by the Phoenix Press Box Association. The trio are Nancy Louk of Alhambra, who will attend University of Arizona, and Robert Snider of Saguaro and Nancy A. Houle of St. Mary's. Snider and Miss Houle will attend Arizona State. All three have served as editors of their school newspapers. "Since the beginning of the program in 1947, the association has awarded more than $50,000 in college scholarships to area high school students who have pursued college degrees in mass communications," said PPBA president Wally Dwyer. John Holland, general manager. Simply marvelous. This is some kind of organization. "To me contracts d o n 't mean anything. People want you or they don't want you. I've worked for some great organizations. I never worked for a bad one. It's just that some are better than others and this happens to be a great one." Asked if, reaching the working man's normal retirement age of 65, he might quit after next season, Leo snapped: "Retirement? I've given that subject no consideration." Durocher said he was elated to hire Franks, dismissed as San Francisco manager after the 1968 season and since directing his private business interests in Salt Lake City. Glotzbach grabs pole CAMBRIDGE JUNCTION, Mich. (AP) - Charlie Glotzbach of Georgetown, Ind., drove a winged Dodge Charger at 157.363 miles per hour to win the pole for Sunday's Yankee 400 stock car race. The 34-y e a r -o 1 d veteran driver topped 29 other drivers who earned starting positions in the 40-car field that will run for just under $80,000 in prize money. Bobby Isaac, driving a Dodge similar to Glotzbach's, was the second best qualifier at 156.294 m.p.h. good for the other front row spot in the starting order. The second row berths went to Richard Petty in a Plymouth at 155.837 and Lee Roy Yarbrough in a Mercury at 155.635. NEW 70 COUGAR '2981 HERB STEVENS LINCOLN-MERCURY 1330 E. Camelback Associated Press INGLEWOOD, Calif. Mexico City's Chucho Castillo boxed his way into a probable third try at the world bantamweight boxing championship last night when he out- pointed fellow countryman Rogelio Lara in a 12-round fight at the Forum. Before the two 118 - pound- ers staged their fray, Mexico's two undisputed world ti- tlists, welterweight Jose Napoles and bantamweight Ruben Olivares, each scored victories by third - round knockouts in non - title bouts slated for 10 stanzas. Castillo, 25, was hard-put against the 22-year-old Lara but scored solidly in the llth round after holding a slight advantage. Referee Larry Rozadillo scored the fight, 8-4, judge George Latka, 6-4, and judge Lee Grossman, 6-5, under California's scoring, which allots from one to five points for the winner of each round. There were no knockdowns although Castillo slipped to the canvas in the sixth and Lara slipped into the ropes in the 12th and final round. Lara suffered a bruised left eye in the fourth and it was cut in the seventh. Castillo bled slightly from the nose from the fifth round on. gross gate of $129,180 for the triple main event and watched Castillo win in the same ring where he had lost two championship fights, first to Lionel Rose of Australia and then to Olivares after the latter stopped Rose. Promoter George Parnassus prior to the fight said the winner would meet Olivares for the title on Oct. 15. Castillo lost by a decision when the two Mexico City battlers met before. Napoles and Olivares had only good workouts. Napoles, 150, stopped Fighting Mack of the Dutch West Indies after 42 seconds of the third round with a right uppercut which sent Mack, also 150, onto the ring apron for the count. Olivares, 123^, decked Jose Arranz, 124, after 1:56 of the third round in their fight and although the Spaniard regained his feet after an eight count, referee Latka soon decided Arranz could take no more punishment and called halt. | Frank Gianelli is on va- | cation.
