The annual affair will be held at Bennington Catholic High school starting at 7 30 . Mutual agreement sought in Mcaa aau dispute recent tourney successes Don t spoil Sanders easy come easy go philosophy by Mif Ion Richman 177 sports writer Augusta a. Up a easy come easy go Doug Sanders has suffered a dozen serious afflictions in his time ranging from a cracked neck to a heart murmur but he has never been bothered by an ulcer or any noticeable palpitation of the pocketbook. He never will be either. Not the Way he lives not the Way he plays and not the Way he thinks. Right now the amiable 32-year-old georgian is making Money land Over nine Iron and everyone is trying to Corner him for his newly found secret which happens to to be one he has always really had. A a in a not playing any different a he laughs. A fall in a doing is getting my backside a Little More inside the Winner of three tournaments so far this year and deprived of a possible fourth when he was looking the other Way and neglected to sign his scorecard at Pensacola Fla., Sanders already has earned $60,234 on the tour in Little More than three months and at least half that amount in addition from his varied Side interests. The Money does no to impress him that much first because he has generally made enough anyway and second because he spends it sometimes twice As fast As he makes it. A a in be always had pretty Good taste a said Sanders whipping some 300-yarders straight Down the practice Alley with a beat up Driver in preparation for thursdays Start of the masters. A win or lose my tastes Haven to changed that much. I be always done what i wanted to do where i wanted and when i wanted. A naturally i like to come close to 60-, 70-, and 80-thousand the a St few years. Anyway Uncle Sam will be coming a oui on april 15. Hell take care of most of what Sanders really wants now is to win the masters because even though he has won 16 championships during his eight years on the pea tour he has yet to capture his first major Golf title. A winning this one would mean More to me than possibly anyone else in the world a he said signalling for his Caddie to come on in. A a that a because of the things i endorse. I think i represent something like to or 12 different companies. Heck i was just made assistant to the president of an insurance company not so Long a i teach the president How to play Golf a he quipped. It has been said that no one on the entire tour lives better or faster than the colourful uninhibited Sanders who has earned $350,000 in official Money alone since he turned pro. He does no to deny the allegation but he does no to particularly support it either. A i simply do things out in the open a he said. A i done to know what the others do and in a not saying they really do anything but i done to try to conceal anything. I like the opposite sex and i think that a Normal. About drinking Well. I enjoy a sociable drink. It helps my nerves. I was on the Wagon for a while last year and then i took a couple of drinks for my birthday in july. Then i Laid off again and had a few on new year s eve. I done to think it hurts that Sanders still is suffering from the flu which he contracted two weeks ago. It does no to seem to bother his game though. A a in be taken so Many antibiotics for it that the doctor says in a getting something else now a he laughed. Sanders Isnit sure what he a getting. Maybe its Richer but certainly it Isnit any More nervous. New York up a a special panel to bring peace to two warring factions of Amateur athletics appeared nearer its goal today but admitted there still Are a some very serious problems to Theodore w. Kheel a new York attorney chosen by vice president Hubert h. Humphrey to head up the group said no solution was reached in the panels meeting that wound up monday but he said he Felt a we have narrowed the area of disagreement Between the National collegiate athletic association and Amateur athletic Union. Kheel said he was optimistic the situation would be ironed out in a satisfactory Compromise and he believed there was a a 50-50 chances the Mcaa and aau will Settle their Power struggle without the panels help. The Long bitter dispute is not restricted to track although it is there that it centers. The Mcaa wants a louder voice in selecting athletes to participate in the olympics and other International games. A we Hope for a Mutual agreement by the two organizations a a Kheel said a rather than an arbitrary award. We will make an arbitrary award Only of a full agreement is not possible. A we still have some very serious problems to resolve a Kheel said but he declined to elaborate. A we Are in the mediation stage. Our aim is to get an agreement. I feel we have succeeded in narrowing the area of the panel will meet again May 2-3, also in new York. Other members of the panel of whom were present Here monday Are former Marine corps commandant David m. Shoup Harvard professor Archibald Cox Cleveland publisher Thomas Vail and former olympic Star Ralph Metcalfe. Several officials of both the aau and Mcaa and related groups attended the meeting. By Fri Down up sports writer it looks like the end of the Road for the Man who pitched the perfect game. Any club in the majors can obtain Don Larsen from the Baltimore orioles for $1 but it appears that none is interested. Don is 36 years old. He won a grand total of one game for the Houston astros and orioles last season. He still carries a pretty High salary. And besides it was to Long years ago a on oct. 8, 1956 to be exact a that the Man his new York Yankee teammates called the a Goonie Birds soared like an Eagle. That was the Day Larsen pitched the Only perfect game in world series history retiring 27 consecutive batters on 97 pitches in a 2-0 Victory Over the Brooklyn dodgers. Its been downhill for Larsen since the perfect game. He won a total of 25 games for the Yankees in the next three seasons and then was traded to the Kansas City athletics. He became a drifter a from the athletics to the White sox to the giants to the astros and finally to the orioles. Larsen was a Spectator monday when the orioles beat the Washington senators 8-4 for their Lith Victory in 21 exhibition games. Curt Blefary hit two homers and Boog Powell one for the orioles while Willie Kirkland and Bob Chance connected for the senators. Ernie Broglio went seven innings and Ted Abernathy pitched the last two innings As the Chicago cubs downed the California Angels 4-0. Dean Chance retired la straight cubs six on strikeouts before Billy Williams broke the spell with his first Homer of the Spring. Outfielder Roger Repoz hit three Solo homers to Pace the Yankees to a 10-9 Triumph Over the Cincinnati reds. Repoz connected off Sammy Ellis in the second and sixth innings and off Ted Davidson in the eighth. American league strikeout King Sam Mcdowell struck out five batters and allowed five hits in six innings As the Cleveland indians topped the los Angeles dodgers 7-2. The loss snapped the world champions three game losing Streak. Four Florida exhibition games were cancelled by rain. Hull collects $2000 for nil scoring feats Angels out searching for big Bat to complement excellent pitching Palm Springs Calif. Up a it is going to take excellent pitching improvement in almost every phase of the game and hitting Power from an unexpected source to make the California Angels a first division team in the american league this season. The first they have the second they can Hope for but the third looks non existent at the moment unless a Trade is made later on. Thus you almost have to figure the Angels to play at about the same gait they did in 1965 when they finished seventh in the . With a 75-87 record. Manager Bill Rigney does no to care to predict where the Angels will finish.

We have Young players who could come on in a hurry and make us stronger than we appear on Rigney and the Angels need a Power hitter and they need him bad. Their big Hope is that Bonus baby Rich Retchardt who has been hitting 450-foot plus homers in the exhibition games can develop fast and give them the Bat to Back up their tight pitching and better than average defense. A the could make a big difference a says Rigney. A we could use a big Retchardt who received a $175,000 Bonus from the Angels played in 131 games with Seattle and 20 with the Angels last year. With the Raniers he smacked 13 homers and had 63 runs batted in. But in 75 at bats with the Angels he had was one Homer and six Bis. Pitching is the Angels Forte and they very Well could have the Best staff in the . This year. Dean Chance who won the by Young award in 1964 As baseball a Best Pitcher was 15-Io last year and even though runs May be few and far Between this year you almost have to figure hell win 20. Marceline Lopez a product of the Philadelphia Phillies organization and Home grown Fred Newman Are the other big men on Rigneyy a pitching staff. Lopez a 22-year-old Lethander won 14 and lost 13 in 1965 but posted a 2.93 earned run average. Newman matched Lopez in Era but was 14-16. However Fred rates As baseball Stop Fielding Pitcher. Last year he had a major league leading 83 assists. George Brunet 9-11 and Rookie Jim Mcglothlin 14-8 at Seattle Are the Angels other starting candidates. Behind them Are Bob Lee and the veterans Lew Burdette and Jack Sanford with Jim Coates and Jack Warner As bullpen candidates. Catching could present a problem. Bob Rodgers will be no. I even though he batted .201 in 1965. Bobs a better hitter than that. If he does no to improve then the Veteran de Bailey picked up from the cubs and Tom Egan will get a Chance to pick up the Slack. Two More veterans a the right handed hitting Joe Adcock and the left handed hitting Norm Lebern a will Divide duties at first depending on the pitching. Adcock now 38 hit 14 homers for California last year while Lebern now 32, had Only eight with the Baltimore orioles. The other three infield spots will be manned by youngsters who figure to get better. That Means Bobby Knopp who hit .269 last year will be at second once again Jim Fregoso who paced the club with 15 homers and 64 Bis will be at Short and Paul Schaal who batted .224 with nine homers will be at third. Willie Smith a converted Pitcher was the teams Best hitting outfielder last year with 14 homers and 57 Bis. He has left Field locked up and Jose Cardenal who hit la homers and also had 57 Bis is a sure bet to open in Center. That leaves Retchardt Jim Piersall .268albie Pearson .278 and converted Catcher de Kirkpatrick to fight it out for the right Field Job. Two other veterans a Frank Malzone and vie Power a also will stick. Rig has no plans for them outside of spot duty. Montreal up a Bobby hulls record breaking scoring achievements earned the Chica go Black Hawk left Winger $2,000 in award Money from the National hockey league for the 1965-66 season. Hull who established records for most goals in a season 54most Points 97and most Power play goals 22finished 19 Points ahead of his nearest rivals teammate Stan Alkita and Montreal Candlen right Winger Bobby Rousseau. Alkita and Rousseau finished the regular season sunday tied for the runner up honors with 78 Points including 30 goals each. Hull earns $1,000 As scoring Champion and receives the Art Ross trophy. He also picks up another $1,000 As Leader in each half of the season. There is a $500 award for each half. Hull had 55 Points in the Hawks first 35 games and 42 Points in the last 35 games. Jean Bellveau of Montreal actually tied Hull in Points during the second half but because Hull outscored Bellveau 22-17 during the half the Chicago player received the $500 award. Bellveau receives $250 As runner up in the second half. Because Alkita and Rousseau were tied in goals As Well As Points Over the season each will receive $500, the amount which goes to the runner up in scoring. Norm Ullman of Detroit was the runner up in the first half of the season and received $250. Pay an Vezina the league also will extra $500 for the trophy award.
