4C RACINE SUNDAY BULLETIN Sunday, July 18, 1965 Braves Hdd Chance for Willie Mays BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — (JP) —The Braves might never have left Boston for Milwaukee if they had made the right decision on a Birmingham center fielder 15 years ago. A former scout for the then Boston Braves, W i Hi a m Maughn, sighed over a cup of coffee with Birmingham News Sports Editor Benny Marshall as he related how he had first grabs at Willie Mays, only to be overruled by higher authority. The New York Giants, who later found gold in San Francisco, weren't so hesitant and signed Mays for the bargain basement price of $14,000— $10,000 to the owner of the Birmingham Black. Barons, who owned Mays and $4,000 to the lad himself. Maughn, who now hunts baseball players in the southeast for the Los Angeles Angels, first saw Willie in 1949 when he stopped by Birmingham to catch a Black Baron game. Not Even Lineup "I just walked in with no lineups or anything, not expecting anything, really," Maughn said. "The left fielder for Birmingham couldn't throw. Dallas had runners on first and third and it was the second inning. The next hitter hit the ball off the scoreboard and the left fielder got it. "The center fielder came running over yelling, 'give it to me, give it to me,' and the left fielder shovel-passed it to him like a football player and the center fielder threw out the runner trying to go from first to third." A couple of more plays like that convinced Maughn that this youngster needed watching. Maughn said he followed Willie for the rest of the season and into the spring of the next. "All he ever thought about or talked about was playing ball," Maughn said. "He was pleading with me to sign him by then, but the Braves had just paid $150,000 for Sam Jethroe, their first Negro player, and they moved slower back then, as you know." Send Man Down However, Maughn said the Braves sent a liaison man down from the front office to look at Mays. "For some reason unknown to me then or now, he passed him up. He said, 'no'," Maughn said. The decision cost them dearly because Maughn tipped Giant scout Eddie Montague about Mays and within a few weeks the youngster who grew up in the shadow of U.S. Steel's giant smokestacks found a baseball home with the Giants. No one can say, of course, whether the Braves would have stayed in Boston but there is little doubt that a superstar like Mays might Billy Joe Patton Overtakes Gray PINEHURST, N. C.—i/P)— Billy Joe Patton, four shots behind at the start, overtook Downing Gray with a three- under-par 69 Saturday to win the Southern Amateur Golf Championship. Patton finished with a 72- ho!e total of 288. have put enough spark into the fans to keep them. Does Them Better "I saw Ruth in his heyday," Maughn said. "I saw Gehrig, Musial, Williams, Greenberg, all of them. Mays does all the things you have to do better than any of them. He'll be there for awhile, too, four or five years more, maybe longer." Maughn, who said he hasn't seen Mays since 1959, said he wore a path from his home in Cullman to Mays' aunt's house in Fairfield. "Not another scout was watching him," Maughn said. "I'd stand on the roof at Rickwood and I knew this guy was mine." But Willie wasn't and Bill Maughn is left with the same feeling as a guy who found a key to Fort Knox but by the time he got there they changed the lock. Wealthy Schmeling Says Clay Not Best —AP Wlrephoto NO BULL-LONEY —Usually not one to run away from a fight, Ferdinand, or whatever his name, leaped the protective wall from the bull ring in Mexico City and startled the spectators as well as the photographer at the left. He (the bull) was lured pack to the arena and no one was injured. as Football P6%er (By the Associated Press) Oklahoma is the 25-year collegiate football champion despite some fancy Sooner- busting by the No. 1 challenger, those onery Texas Longhorns. A mere .004 percentage points separate Notre Dame, Penn State, Mississippi and Ohio State battling for position behind the top pair in a quarter century survey of major teams. From 1940 through 1964, Oklahoma has won 192 games, lost 57 and tied eight. That means the Sooners capture better than three out of every four decisions. Hot Recently Texas, about the hottest team in the nation recently, has fashioned a 189-65-7 mark including a blazing 443-2 stretch since mid-1960. The Longhorns missed a perfect 1964 campaign by % single point and then shocked HAMBURG, Germany —i/P) — Max Schmeling, who has traveled the road from hard punch fame to soft drink prosperity, regards Cassius Clay as a good fighter but no Dempsey, Tunney or Louis. Schmeling was heavyweight champion before Clay uttered his first word and is best remembered for his two fights with Joe Louis in the 1930s. He is now a prosperous soft drink distributor in Germany. In his Hamburg office, overlooking the noisy assembly line of bottles, the ex-champ, in one of his frequent interviews, talked about boxing now and in his day. How About Clay? Naturally he was askCd to comment on the champion- orator and orator-champion Clay. Schmeling hesitated, patted down some gray hairs and said: "To me, this Clay talks too much and fights too little. But I will have to say that he is a very good man. There is no question about that. He is the best around. "If he was not good he would never have been Olympic champion." Schmeling q u a li f i e d his statement a bit by saying he didn't think there was much competition around these days and that Clay was no great fighter yet. As for the Sonny Liston- Clay fight in May, Max said: "I saw the fight in Vienna on television and I would say that Clay simply caught Liston cold. It can happen in the first round that way. With the same punch in say the fifth or sixth round, once Liston was warmed up, I don't think it could have knocked him out." Clay—Sportsman? Schmeling eyed the photograph covered wall in front of him. There he, Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis and other ring greats were gathered in poses, celebrating a boxing era long gon. "I do hope that Clay will be I a sportsman," Max said. "It's very important for the champ. Only a few months away from his 60th birthday. Schmeling is full-faced and looks much younger than his age. He shows little evidence of over 15 years of fighting. His smile is hearty and his relaxed manner more American than German. He says he exercises regularly—five or six kilometers each morning on a stationary bike — and does some hunting. "The boxers today are still good but they are not hungry like they used to be." he said. "I started fighting professionally in 1924 and earned $5 in my first fights. Two years later, I was fighting for $20 a fight. I was hungry. I lived off of what I .made in the ring. Worked Hard "Now you got fighters making thousands of dollars in their first year. And you got guys like Pete Rademacher who fights for the world championship in his very first pro fight. We had to work hard for championships in my time. If the champ beat you, you had to start again at the bottom of the ladder and earn another shot. No return bout clause business then." The man who knocked out Louis in 12 rounds, and then was kayoed in the first round of a return match, was asked if there was another Schmeling around—a possible second German world heavyweight champion. "We've got this Kari Mildenberger now, the European heavyweight champion," Max answered. "But he doesn't seem to want to go to the States and fight and that's the only way he will get any place. Southpaw Fighter "He is a lefty and it is always harder to beat a lefty. He has fought Americans here in Germany and beaten them. But he must go to America if he w,ants to fight the big boys — they won't come here." Schmeling was talking from experience because that was what he did in 1929. He fought all the best big men around and in 1930 won the title from Jack Sharkey when the Boston sailor was disqualified for a low punch. According to Schmeling, winning the title fulfilled a forecast made by Dempsey. In 1925, when Dempsey was champ and Schmeling a young light-heavyweight with a half-year's experience, the two met in a one-round ex hibition in Cologne. Dempsey was on his honeymoon at the time. Too Clever "He was too clever for me," aid Schmeling. "But after the iVorkout he shook my hand md said some day I would )e the champion. "The next day Dempsey lad an exhibition with another fighter and he told him the same thing. "He was right, though, when he told me."

Jagade, former Indiana University stars, heads an engineering and sales firm in Glenview, 111, Bob Swaffar Recovering from Re-implant of Arm STILLWATER, Okla. —(/?») —A person walking by Bob Swaffar's office probably would notice nothing unusual —a tall blond efficently operating an adding machine with his left hand while a cigaret dangles from his mouth. Not until he digs out a book of matches and deftly strikes one to light the cigaret is it apparent something might be amiss. Maybe, too, an observer who doesn't recognize the for mer Oklahoma State Univer sity basketball player might notice he doesn't use his right hand as he climbs into his car to go for his daily one- hour hospital therapy sessions with nurse Judy Terrell. But for Swaffar, something had been wrong, although there's every evidence time will take care of it. Swaffar's misfortune last Oct. 31 made nationwide news. His right arm was caught in the spinning mechanism of a clothes dryer in the university's athletic department laundry. His arm was ripped off, midway between the elbow and shoulder, ending in a split second his basketball career. Re-implant Limb But, partially because of the quick reactions by teammate Gary Hassmann, a premed student, a team of sur- g e 0 n s successfully re-implanted the severed arm after an eight-hour, p r e-d a w n operation at University Hospital in Oklahoma City. Hassmann had packed the severed limb in cold water and ice. In subsequent operations, nerves were re-tied with the hope that within a few years, Swaffar would regain feeling in the arm. Swaffar's recovery has progressed so satisfactorily that he no longer needs a sling. His exercises even include basketball workouts once again at Gallagher Hall, frequently with Gene Johnson. Swaffer can use only his left arm, however, although he has feeling and maneuverability above the elbow in his right. Uses Left Hand Although he had been right handed, Swaffar has teamed to use his left hand well — in basketball, writing, tennis and to punch keys of the adding machine at his office in the Central Rural Electric Co-operative, where he is a summer employe. Proof that the operation succeeded is the gradual re- a It's Sandy For COLOR —TV — Magnavox ond RCA Victor Ask About Our Free Home Triol THRIFTY SANDY'S Downtown — 512 Wis. Ave. turn of feeling in the re-im planted limb. "I 've got feeling down to here, now," said Swaffar, pointing about three inches below where the arm was re- implanted. "They've (the nerves) grown about three inches." His daily routines include whirlpool baths, massage, electronic stimulation of unused muscles, and manual bending of the right arm. Doctors say recovery, dependent now on the nerves, will be a slow process. Swaffer is continuing some of his school work this summer because his classes were interrupted by a concession of operations. He still has his athletic scholarship at OSU, earning his way as a student coach under Hank Iba. Two More Years Swaffar, a towering 6-9, is a mathematics major, with a minor in accounting. He has two more years to go before he gets his degree. Circulation in Swaffar's right hand is fine, a primary concern earlier by doctors, but the former athlete notes the hand is slightly smaller than his left hand because of inactivity. He doesn't see any danger in participating in sjjorts in a minor way, but he's careful to avoid injury which he wouldn't detect beaause of the lack of feeling. Groping for terms, Swaffar said the arm feels something like being asleep or after you've hit your "crazy bone." But the feeling isn't always the same, he said.

Texas will carry a string of seven straight victories over Oklahoma into their annual battle for the Bronze Cowboy Hat trophy in Dallas this fall. What's more, former Sooner quarterback- halfback Darrell Royal has plotted the skein as Texas head coach. Change Again Starting with 1940, the Steers won eight in a row from Oklahoma, the Soon­ ers took nine of the next 10, then it's been Texas ever since. But against all other opposition, Oklahoma has won 10 more games and lost 15 fewer than its arch rival. By virtue of a comeback from the 2-7 doldrums of 1963 to a 9-1 record in 1964, Notre Dame edges Penn State, .719 to .7187 for third. After dropping four of its first five. State broke away to a 6-4 finish, the Lambert Trophy and its 26th con- .secutive winning season, Mississippi has a .717 percentage and Ohio State is .715. Army, Michigan State, Tennessee and Georgia Tech complete the top ten. Alabama and Michigan are hard astern of them. Better than 40 per cent of Oklahoma's triumphs in the era are centered in two massive winning streaks of 31 and 47 games. The latter spanning 1953-57 is the longest of all time against college opposition and was ended by Notre Dame, 7-0. Won 15 in Row By contrast, Texas ha^ counted on steadiness over the years, its longest winning skein being of 15 games duration and halted by Arkansas 14-13 last fall. Each of the two teams have had only two losing seasons apiece in the last 25. The survey concerns major teams of long standing and does not include schools which- have reached major status within the past few years. The South has eight representatives in the top 25, the East seven and the Midwest five. Jaime Pressly 1st in Junior Tennis FOREST HILLS, N.
