Logansport Pharos-Tribune (Newspaper) - April 29, 1966, Logansport, Indiana Friday Evening, April Red Goes Out Puffing Cigar BOSTON (UPI) is still the capital of the basketball world, Red Auerbach went out puffing a victory cigar, and Bill Russell is ready to try his coaching hand. The imcomparable Celtics knocked out the Los Angeles Lakers, 95-93, Thursday night for the eighth straight Boston championship and ninth in the last ten National Basketball Association seasons. Victory in the seventh and final championship playoff game meant a good deal more to the Celtics than the roughly J4.143 per man they will collect at world champs. It was the lifetime victory for Auerbach who ended a 20-year coarching career to take over as Boston general manager. The Celtics, who had led throughout and were apparently coasting home in the fourth quarter after leading by 19 I points in the third round, were 'pushed just a bit at the end though the outcome was not as close as the score would indicate. Race to End Russell, in his very last game as strictly a stuffed a shot with 30 seconds left for a 95-85 Boston bulge. After that, i! was a race to see whether the fans could cover the Boston Garden court before the Lakers could pick up enough points to close the gap. Jerry West scored twice and Jim King and Leroy Ellis once each but -Boston's K. C. Jones j had firm possession of the ball at mid-court when the time ran out on the fourth unsuccessful Los Angeles title bid in the past five years. Auerbach had his victory cigar lit by Massachusetts Gov. John A. Volpe and was helf I carried from the floor to a Baker's Dozen By Joe Baker BIG TINS COMING A pair of top events on the spring calendar are on tap Saturday providing the weatherman is in good and Lafayette will roll out the red carpets waiting shower while fully clothed. In Boston, it's been a tradition to drench Auerbach, clothes and aU. But if they win again next year, the Celtics will have to fold Russell into the shower stall in his uniform of playing-coach. Credits Defense Laker Coach Fred Schaus credited the Boston defensive specialty which shut the Lakers out for the first three minutes of the game and choked off several Los Angeles comeback bids. Russell led the defensive effort, with 32 rebpunds and! paced the Celtics' attack with! 25 points. Sam Jones played! only 29 minutes and added 221 points to the Celtic attack. At the end, four of the Boston starters had five personal fouls as the officials handed the I Celtics 33 and the Lakers 22. Jerry West, limited to a single basket until the ten- minute mark of the second quarter, wound up with 36 points to pace the losing effort. But Elgin Baylor, who had been staging a great playoff come- back, was limited to 18 and the Lakers never scored more than 22 points in a quarter until their 33-point spree in the final round.

The Berries took every match in straight sets with only one, Bill Buskirk, being pushed hard. Buskirk, at number five, pull ed up with a lame leg during his first set but managed to take a 9-7 decision before hobbling to a 6-1 verdict in the second set No other Frankfort player managed more than two games against the Berries in singles loss.

The class "A" pole vault mark Taking youth first, the Dou- bles Tournament is expected to be a dandy. Logansport joins teams from Peru, Jeff, Bloomington Univer- sity, Arlington, West Lafayette, Muncie Bums and Crawfords- ville. Speaking in terms of tennis, that's a pretty fair lineup or count down to go up against. The big gossip around the pot- belly stove is whether or not Peru can manipulate its eighth straight championship. Peru has met three of the challengers in regular match play and the results indicate the Tigers may be in for the roughest time they have had In the nine-year history of the event. One of Peru's two losses this season was to Jeff. In that one, the Bronchs1 number one dou- bles dumped the top team of Peru, Max Weaver and Mike Saine, with little trouble. Pern holds a season victory over Logan but one of the Berries' team points came when Joe McFatridge and Bill BusWrk defeated Don Teal and Jim Engelage in the num- ber two doubles in straight 6-3 sets. The kicker here is Peru meets Jeff in the first round of the number one doubles while Peru and Logan are paired in the same bracket of the second dou- bles tourney. Logan's number two combo first must get by Bloomington University, a team it beat ear- lier in the season in straight sets. Peru goes against AT- lington in the first round. Taking all odds into considera- tion Jeff is the favorite to win its tourney for the first time but don't bet on it. After seeing Ms crew rack up a 7-3 record, Coach Bob Burnett has more than high nopes of one of the most suc- cessful seasons LHS has in- curred. Presently, the number one combo of Mike Higgle and Jim Flory has a 5-4 record while the number two unit of McFatridge and Buskirk is riding with a 6-1 record. Staffan Sahlqvlst has filled In on both units and is 1-0 as a first team member and 2-1 with the second combination. NEW A total of 24 teams, split even- ly three ways, will be vying for championship honors at Delphi, New champs are assured in ail three divisions since No- blesvlUe, last year's Class A champs' withdrew due to schedule conflicts; West La- fayette, the "B" winner in 1965 moved up to Class and Pioneer, the "C" champ last year, Is .competing as a Class "B" team. Aside from all of the entries, pretty queen candidates and ca- pacity crowds, there are two in- dividual records which have withstood the pressure of per- formances for about two de- cades. Both records, ironically, have local Interest and both of 13 feet even is held by Lo- gansport's Bill Moore, set in 1942. No less than three vault- ers have a crack at this one. One of them Is Bill's son, Bruce, who would like to break the mark just about as much as dad would like to see him do it. Bruce, a junior, cleared 12- foot-6 Tuesday against Lafay- ette Jeff then sailed 13 feet at Marion Thursday. A new mark is not entirely out of reach since he only has competed in three meets this season, starting out with a 12- foot The other two vaulters with a chance at the record hail from Delphi. Greg Shaeffer and Larry Logsdon have cleared the 12-6 mark on oc- casions this season. The oldest mark in the books is the Class "B" high hurdles. A kid by the name of Mainord Weaver cleared the sticks in 15.1 second back in 1939 and no one has come close to that mark since. The name of Mainord Weav- er may not mean anything to most track fans of Logansport but it means a great deal to LHS assistant track coach Joe Weaver. Malnord Is Joe's brother. WHAT'S THIS? Rochester tried something new in the way of track meets this week. At least, this corner never heard of it being done in the high school ranks, The Zebras, heavily favor- ed to run off and leave Mon- terey, entered their best per- formers as "exhibitions" only and did not count their points. For instance, Steve Norris had a jump of 20-foot-3 in the long jump, the best effort of the day, but did not enter into the scoring. In fact, Norris did not get a bine ribbon in flie meet. He did not enter the high jump where he holds the state's best at 6-7 but Rochester still swept the event with the winning height at 5-6. Oh, yes, Rochester did win the meet, by a wide margin Speaking of new wrinkles, the Rochester Relays, slated for Tuesday evening, will have something new hi the pole vault arena. Athletic Director Bill Schroer is not saying what, at the pres- ent time, but he caljs it "a cloud-9 landing device." NEW LEAGUE Carroll, Southwestern and Clinton Prairie have with- drawn from the Booster Con- ference and entered another. The three schools join Clin- ton Central, East Tipp, Thorn- town and Wainwright in the Mid-Central Conference. We presume league action will begin next school year. The sports Involved are cross country, football, basketball, track and baseball. Riggle, Staffan qvist, Jim Flory, and Joe Mc- Fatridge reeled off easy victor- ies. Riggle and Flory teammed an easy 6-1, 6-2 decision in the number one doubles. Sahlqvist, subbing for Bus- kirk, and McFatridge took the nber two doubles in 6-3 and G-2. The Berries journey to Lafay- ette Saturday for the rain-de- layed Jeff Doubles. The victory marked the third Cleveland Wins Tenth The Cleveland Indians are being careful these their manager isn't. The combination was enough to enable the Indians to become the first team in the history of the American League to start the season with 10 straight victories. Manager Birdie Tibbetts' big gamble paid off with a 2-1 triumph over California. With the score tied 1-1 and runners on first and third in the last of the eighth, Tebbetts lifted Joe Azcae or a pinch- hitter even though he was 3-for- 3 in the game. The decision brought some catcalls from the Indian fans. But Leon Wagner came through with a sacrifice fly to win the game. The kind of decision to .put Wagner in for Azcue was a difficult one but I believe it was the right one as the score Howe (F) 6-2, 6-1. Joe McFatridge (L) over Bill Adair (F) 6-2, 6-0. Bill Buskirk (L) over Lonnie Dial (F) 9-7, 6-1. Doubles Riggle-Flory (L) over Moore- Jim Tisen (F) 6-1, 6-2. McFatridge-Sahlqvist (L) over Howe-Adair (F) 6-3, 6-2. Marichal Wins Fourth Juan Marichal has outdated the bullpen in San Francisco. No, the Dominican dandy hasn't introduced automation at Candlestick Park even relief pitchers are temporarily out of work. It's just that Marichal has a fixation about finishing what he starts. The high-kicking right-hander has started four games for the Giants this season. He also has completed four and in the process chalked up four conse- cutive victories to boast the best record' among major league hurlers. But it isn't just the fact that Marichal completes games that endears him to Manager Herman Franks. It's also the way he does it. In 36 innings he has surrendered a total of two earned runs for a miniscule ERA of 0.50. Holds Red Scoreless He didn't give up a run of any kind Thursday night in of the year, a 3-0 whitewash of the Cincinnati Reds that bossed the Giants into a second-place tie with the Los Angeles Dodgers in the fiercely competitive lifted them back into contention for the Stanley Cup is a barrel- shaped fellow who seldom ventures more than a few feet at a time. The Canadiens bounced back from two straight defeats and trounced the Detroit Red Wings, 4-2, in the ttird game of the Stanley Cup finals here Thursday night. Dave Balon and Jean Be- liveau scored a goal each and Gilles JTremblay fired in the last two goals but it was the stubby veteran goaltender Gump Worsley who shut off the Red Wing scoring machine with just two goals. Norm Ullman scored the first Detroit goal, be.-.ling Worsley after just of the game but, after that, the 36-year-old veteran of the hockey wars was it didn't matter and then Gordie Howe scored for the Wings with just one second left in the game. "This is the first game we've reaUy said Detroit veteran Andy Bathgate, who listed at least two possible goal- shots which Worsley had I stopped. "We had good j manager-coach Sid Abel said, Worsley made the big I saves against us." Montreal coach Toe Blake said he felt "a Jittle better" after the Canadiens' win and predicted a "helluva battle from here on." The Detroit loss seemed somewhat inevitable. The Wings had won five games from Chicago in the semifinals the first two against Montreal. And their spirit and confidence remained high despite the setback. didn't play Bathgate said. "We're not can only keep the body going so long." "It's over he said.

Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Fifteen Marion i Balance Beats Logansport Thinlies By DAVE LONG Pharos-Tribune Sports Writer lost a dual meet to Marion at the sog- gy Grant county track Thurs- day night 74-44, winning its three strongest events and end- ing up with a disputed first in another. The most pleasant surprise for Coach Fred Kinder was Bruce Moore's 13 feet flight over the pole vault. The rookie junior passed until the bar was at 11 feet, and ac- tually had the event won when he cleared 12 feet. Kinder finally called a halt to the exhibition when Moore bare- ly missed twice at 13 feet, six inches. Logansport started off strong in the track events taking the first two spots in the high hur- dles. Randy Bennett grabbed the first position and Buddy Gust tromping right behind him in a near-photo finish. The wet track slowed down the speeds of most of the events, but Bennett clicked off a time of 15.4 seconds. Greg Summers, Logan's mil- er, took second in his specialty and was running second in the when he lost his footing in the backstreteh of the second lap and fell on the heels of the eventual winner, Ed Dixon, of Marion. Logansport's sophomore speedster, Don Tribbett, won the disputed 100 yard dash. After a brief deliberation Tribbett was declared the win- ner over the objections of a couple of the officials. He was clocked in 10.8 seconds. Buddy Gust returned to top form after finishing second in the high hurdles, and captured the number one spot in the lows. He covered the distance in 21 seconds flat. The 440 was right behind his teammate, and gave Logansport the second place.' Dave Albright won the shot put for Marion Tom O'Donnell Steve Coon third. The winning toss was 47 feet nine and a half inches. Logan's relay teams were vic- tims of poor handoffs, losing valuable seconds in the events, and consequently finished sec- ond in both cases. Marion took the mile relay in and the 880 relay in and picked up 10 big points. Dixon, the only double win- ner of the day, handed Marion a first place in the long jump, with a leap of 20 feet, 7 inches. Fritz Muehlhausen saved the Berries from being shutout in the high jump, placing third in the event. Doug Brown, of Mar- ion, won it with a jump of 5 feet 10 inches. Logansport's junior varsity squad met much the same fate a portion of the way in the final lap Thursday. Steve Williams, however, was a close race as The Dodgers whipped the Atlnta Braves 8-2 to keep indicates. No oneln likes to make this kind of choice. But Wagner has aj H s better hitting record has against j the Angels and he seemed like the right man for the job at the time." In the only other American League game, the Detroit Tigers clobbered the Kansas City Athletics 13-5. The Minneso- ta-Baltimore doubleheader and the Chicago-Boston and Wash- ington-New York games were postponed by rain and cold weather. who over- '9-6 in 10 edged St. 4-2 in the only other senior circuit action. BR Team Meetings Two Babe Ruth Team meet- Ings are scheduled for Satur- day. The SUS Dodgers will meet at the Eagles Lodge at 2 p.m. and the FOP Giants will meet at Ayres Grocery at 6 p.m. Marion's Roger Brewer bested Tom Henry of Logasport by two tenths of a second, at 54.8. Jim Pugh finished third for the Ber- ries. Little John Ulery, Logans- port's hard-luck two-miler, suf- fered another heartbreaking de- feat Thursday. He tripped and fell in the final stretch at Oak Hill last week and he was dis- qualified in the final leg of the event Thursday for cutting in, Ulery was running a strong second both days, and had led LOGAN-JEFF GAME RESET The Logansport Lafayette .Teff North Central Conference baseball opener was postpon- ed Thursday due to wet grounds. The game is slated to be played Friday at 4 p.m. at Lafayette's Columbia Park. Rick Rohrbaugh is expected to be on the mound for the Berries.
