Bombers J, C R Welly Way 2 By Mark Dukes The defending champion Dee Moines Bombers rebounded from an earlier 5-4 loss to Welty Way to hang a pair of 3-2 defeats on the three-time winners in the finale of the 1974 ASA state softball tournament at Ellis park Sunday. Des Moines advances to the regional tourney in Springfield, Mo., for the right to go on to the national meet in Clearwater, Ma., in September. A crowd estimated at 4,200 viewed what looked to be a Welty victory in the opener, but it was a towering, two-run homer by Bomber Tom Sto-kesberry with one out in the bottom of the seventh which gave the visitors a win. Des Moines, which beat Clear Lake Butter Top 3-1 in the losers’ bracket for the right to meet Welty, took a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning of the first, game on Norm Singleton’s home run. Welty then countered with a single marker of its own in the ! top of the fifth on Larry Anderson’s round-tripper. Will Gaffner, who hurled a fine game for the losers in giving up three hits and walking three, received another run from his teammates in the sixth to put the count at 2-1. Ed White reached base on a bunt single arid was sacrificed to second by Mike Palleson to start the sixth. Steve Andrew was safe on a throwing error, putting men on first and third, then Jocko Binderies drove home White with a sacrifice fly. Singleton started the seventh for Des Moines with a single. Pete Morasco forced Singleton at second, then Sto- Legion 9 Needs One More Win RALSTON, Neb.—The Cedar Rapids American Legion baseball team won two games in the Central plains Regional tourney Sunday and emerged as the only unbeaten team after completion of three rounds of play. One more victory will give the C.R. club the title and send it to the national tournament in Roseburg, Ore., next week. The C. R. Legion Squad is scheduled to face Fargo, N.D. at 2:30 p.m. Monday, following wins over St. Paul, Minn, and Afton, Mo. Sunday. Mike Boddicker, who preps at Norway, tossed a five-hitter and scored the winning run on a single by Harold Miller in the 10th inning to let C.R. top St. Paul, 2-1, in an early game Sunday. C.R. came back with a nine-hit attack to grab an 11-4 win over Afton in a game that ended at I a.m. Monday. A three-run home run by Dick Church and triples by Doug Sherman and Bill Wilson highlighted the Legion win in the nightcap. Catcher Dave Gaskill, who ho-mered in the St. Paul contest, suffered an eye injury and is a doubtful performer for the Legion during the remainder of the regional.

(AP) — Dave Stockton gave back his $40,000 first prize, had a little chat with the President and then set his sights on Augusta, Ga., and next year’s Masters tournament. Stockton was on his way to the clubhouse following his easy victory in the Sammy Davis Jr.-Greater Hartford Open Golf Tournament Sunday when he was summoned back to the press tent to receive telephone congratulations from President Gerald Ford. “He said he hadn’t watched on television,’’ Stockton said. “He’d been out playing golf at Burning Tree.

Welty, which took this championship in 1969-70-71, plated an unearned tally in the second to take a short-lived 1-0 lead in the second game. Andrew led off by reaching on the first baseman’s miscue and was moved over to second on Hinderks’ sacrifice. Cordy Pisarik was safe at first when pitcher Don Flischer attempted to nip Andrew at third on a ground out. Pisarik was out stealing second, then Bob Timmons placed a solid RBI single past the first baseman. The Bombers came back with I two runs in the third on three hits off losing Welty pitcher Al Rausch. After two quick strikeouts, Pat Turner got the first safety off Rausch and went to second on a wild pitch. Roger Budding knocked in Turner with a ground rule double and was then driven in himself on Singleton’s subsequent triple. Rausch helped his own cause with an RBI single in the Welty fourth to knot the score again but Des Moines came back to win the contest on Wendel Blan-kenburg’s homer to center in the bottom half of the frame. Welty made a determined challenge in the seventh but eventually failed. With two out, Palleson and Andrew walked but Hinderks terminated the tilt by flying out. Andrew received the Most Valuable Player award in the! post-game ceremonies. Dean Olson of the Bombers and Jack Larson of Cedar Rapids Goh-marm Realty shared the Most Valuable Pitcher trophy.

Bombers Acc, Zings Windmill Delivery lied Peppers #/?/ Huh Sr Rick Marsh Out —Alas, it looks as if we were right after all when we wrote in this space last week that there wouldn’t be any Cedar Rapids players on the Iowa football squad. Rick Marsh 'last Thursday informed Coach Bob Commings he has decided not to play football this fall. The Hawkeye staff was counting on Rick, a 6-5, 234-pound junior, to be one of their top tight ends. The former C.R. Jeff all-stater wasn’t available for comment on his decision Monday morning. His father, Kenny Marsh, once a star swimmer at Iowa, said he was surprised at Rick’s decision. “I don’t know if Rick will go back to school or not,” Kenny said, “but he says he doesn’t feel like playing football and is not mentally ready to play. He had been working out hard all summer until the end of July. “I want him to play and to attend school, of course, but I don’t want to push him. It’s his decision. It may be he would want to go back after laying out a year, but that’s up to him, too. “Rick is working for me at our scrap yard, and he tends bar in our tavern on weekends. He’s a fine worker. But I sure hope he decides to finish school.” Women Improving —Are women athletes improving faster than men? Well, Ms. magazine says so in its September issue. The mag points out that people used to think the only exercise a young woman needed was to sit up straight. Ms. uses these examples to illustrate how women athletes have narrowed the “muscle gap” with men: In the last 25 years, women runners have improved their 100-meter record by seven-tenths of a seconds, from 11.5 to 10.8. In the same time, men have cut theirs only three-tenths. from 10.8 to 9.9. Iii swimming, today’s women’s champion, Shane Gould, is winning rings around the record of Tarzan, Johnny Weismuller. Shane’s world record (for women) is 4:21.2 for the 400 meters. Back in 1927 Weismuller’s best was 4:52.0, a pool-length slower. Women are overcoming things that used to be considered handicaps. At a recent Olympics, an American woman captured three gold medals and broke a world’s record during “those days” of her menstrual cycle. Ms. admits women still have some physical handicaps. For instance, men have the advantage of adrogens, male hormones which tend to produce denser bones and stimulate growth of the muscle tissue. Also, ounce for ounce, women tend to have more fatty tissue than men. This protects them from cold (now you understand about mini-skirts), but it also means that even the sleekest woman runner has to carry around extra weight. (Hmm, now we know why low characters refer to them as “broads.”) One to o Serving? —So they’re back to that in tennis again. huh? Arguing that the rules be changed to permit only one serve instead of two. Seems to us there was similar talk back in the golden days of Pancho Gonzales, and before that when Jack Kramer ruled the roost. Some observers wanted to reduce the effectiveness of their powerful serves. . This time the topic was kicked off by — of all people — Hank Greenberg, who made the Hall of Fame in baseball, not tennis. Anyway, Hank was quoted as follows; “I’d like to see the rules changed so they allow only one serve. . .I would think the idea of tennis is to put the ball in play. Do you realize that when a player misses with his first serve, it is the only stroke in tennis where he can miss a shot without being penalized? Where else do you see something like that in sports?” Hmm, Hank has never had a mulligan in golf apparently. Or he hasn’t watched pro basketball, where players sometimes get three shots to make two. But we always think it’s silly for people to criticize rules of one sport, trying to make them conform to other sports. Who in the world said all sports should be alike? Of course they have different rules. We don’t have much preference either way on the subject of two serves or one. However, we do like the view of Billy Talbert, director of the U.S. Open at Forest Hills: “I’m in favor of anything to bring ground strokes back into tennis. Reducing the speed of the serve will do that. If you eliminate one serve, it will be taking away the home run in baseball, the bomb in football, but you’d have more equal matches. * soring Cedar Valley Trail Hiders group is having a meet- *{le Masters.
