Pile into its Rich wide Wale Corduroy with suede shoulders zip and Button it. 39.95 by Milton Richman up sports writer new York up a looking Back at 1965, there were some personal memories that never be Able to wring out even when they ring in the new year. Like the last conversation with Branch Rickey that took place toward the end of january. He had made a special trip Here to help elect the late James pud Galvin to baseball shall of Fame and while few knew anything about Galvin Rickey did. A the deserves to be enshrined a said Rickey. A Galvin pitched 649 Complete games and any Man who does that should be remembered for there was that sunny March Day in Lakeland Fla., when a sudden halt was called to ail activity in the Spring training Camp of the Detroit tigers. The players were summoned to the clubhouse and told manager Chur Cdr Essen had suffered a heart attack. Over at Vero Beach Fla., that same month Sandy Koufax did some huffing and puffing after finishing 15 laps around the Field. A what id like most is to be Able to pitch the entire year a he said shifting some Bubble gum to the other Side of his Mouth a this is my Lith year coming up. Id like to make 15 if i later in March Dick Groat called the turn on the world Champion cardinals when asked to predict where they would finish in 1965. A i really care to say a declared Groat at St. Petersburg Fla. A some kind of disease seems to have set into this league. Pittsburgh won in 1960 and finished sixth in 1961 Cincinnati won in 1961 and finished third the following year san Francisco dropped in 1963 after winning in 1962, and then the dodgers finished sixth in �?T63 after sweeping the Yankees in 62.�?� Groat must have known something. The cards wound up seventh in �?T65. Then it was on to Augusta ga., for the masters in april. A i feel like burning my clubs a scowled Snead. Jack Nicklaus went on to win it and he Drew a laugh upon accepting his Check. A i Don t care if they done to a Penny for winning this one a he said. A i play More for the accomplishment than the Money. Financially it does t mean a whole lot. But in a not Gonna give it Back.�?�. There was that feeling of utter helplessness among those who watched Catcher Johnny Blanchard cry like a baby when the Yankees traded him to the a a in May and that same month Sonny Liston Strainer Willie Reddish came up with the prediction a of the Century two Days before the title fight with Cassius Clay. A it won t be a Quick fight a offered Reddish at Poland Springs Maine. Gary players . Open Victory at St. Louis in june along with his subsequent turnover of the prize Money to Charity was memorable enough twit even More so in my Book anyway was the great try made by 44-year-old runner up Kel Nagle. A month later after blowing the insurance City open Dave Marr sat Down in the Kitchen of his apartment and told his wife head never win a Golf tournament because a a there a too much dog in there were tears of happiness in marry a eyes when he won the pea title two weeks later at Ligonier pa., where he recalled the conversation with his wife. Then came August with Johnny Roseboro wondering a the that whatever possessed Juan Richal to Kong him Over head with a Bat and episode was followed by Manuel Santana a National singles Tennis Victory at Forest Hills in september. Koufax monopolized the month of october although there was a momentary interlude during which Leo Durocher was named manager of the cubs. That again Wasny to Floyd everyone had he did it. Before the year was out baseball introduced a new commissioner and the White sox a new manager. Everyone had heard of the manager before but no one had heard of the commissioner. And that a the kind of year it was. Man Clay was Back in november and it enough that he beat Patterson but then to listen to How West Rutland a thebe Nhi cats extended their losing Streak to four games Here monday night losing to West Rutland 83-60. The cats led at the end of the first period 18-17, but were outscored in the second Frame 21-11, to fall far behind. Once again the key to the loss was foul trouble. Steve Greenslet who hit for nine Points while seeing Only limited action notched his third personal in the first period. Jim Shoemaker turning in another Strong performance hit for 12 in the first half but personals benched him also in the second half. Shoemaker was High for the cats with his 12, followed by Jimmy Keir with la. The Byrn boys again looked Strong in the opening minutes of the game As they played deliberate offensive Ball and harassed the Golden horde with an effective zone press. But As the number of team fouls increased the press became less effective and West Rutland then had Little trouble breaking it. Ray Czachor paced the charges of Russ Shappy with 19 Points on nine Field goals mostly from inside. De Reczek chipped in 18 and Tom Yokubowski tallied 13. The Wes siders now stand 2-3 on the season.
