BETWEEN NEW PHILA AND UHRICHSVILLEIckes, Kohl To Play In Jet Stadium Two Tuscarawas County baseballers, Don Ickes of Midvale and Bruce Kohl of Gnadenhutten, have been invited to participate in the Senior All-Star Series in Jet Stadium at Columbus June 20-21. The 2 countians join other Eastern District “stars Butch Corder of Coshocton and Mike Lucas of Martins Ferry on the all-senior squad. Ickes, 5-11, 190-pound catcher, and Kohl, 6-2, 175-pound center-fielder, both are swatting the ball at about a .360 clip to lead their teams in that department. Ickes also is the team leader in runs batted in, as is Kohl, and has clouted 3 homers this season. A strong-armed individual, Ickes is rated an outstanding defensive backstop. He is a 4-year letterman. Kohl, who missed his freshman year because of a back injury, also possesses a fine throwing arm and is tabed one of the best defensive gardeners in the league. Last year. New Philadelphia's Steve Reese, now at Heidelberg College, performed for the Eastern aggregation.Fairmont Team Expected Third Golf Crown COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Kettering Fairmont West’s defending champions had their third Ohio high school golf crown in four years practically clinched today as the state’s scholastic divot-diggers breezed into the final 18 holes of the 38th annual tourney. The Kettering quartet, all of whom broke 80 over Ohio State University’s long and treacherous Scarlet course, took a total of 307 strokes for the opening round Friday. That gave the leaders a 10-stroke edge over Findlay, and ll over Barberton Norton. Delaware Hayes was another stroke back, at 319, and Troy was fifth at 320. None of the other 20-odd teams seemed to have a chance, as scores soared all the way up to 361. Pacing the pack in the race for individual laurels were Ron Line of Lima Senior and Tom Norris of Findlay, each with a one under-par 71. Bob Viets of Kettering was just a stroke behind, dead locked with Ross Bartschy Jr., of Upper Arlington, son of the former Ohio State football star. Bartschy is the state’s Junior Chamber of Commerce golf king.Top Pro' Tokes Lebanon Feature LEBANON, Ohio (AP)—Top Pro took the lead at the first turn at Lebanon Raceway Friday night and won the featured pace in 2:08 by three-fourths of a length.

Gnaden    Outfielder Casper’s 7-Under i Good For Lead Bv VAN SAVELL MEMPHIS (AP)—The scene of the $50,000 Memphis Open Golf Tournament is no pitch ’n’ putt course, but don’t try to tell Billy Casper. The portly California pro fired a seven under-par 63 Friday and took the second-round lead with a 132, two strokes ahead of his nearest challengers. Casper pitched with perfection, using his sand wedge eight times and his pitching wedge once, yet he was in only one trap. He had seven one-putt greens and IO two-putt greens. The finale was a bouncing 90-foot chip for an eagle on the 18th hole.Big Ten Diamond Race Finds Pair Deadlocked At 9-3 CHICAGO (AP)—The Big Ten baseball championship race went down to the wire today with Michigan and Minnesota locked in the lead with 9-3 records. Ohio State was only a half game out with 9-4.

Ohio State rallied for four runs in the eighth inning on five hits, including a double by Ar-nie Chonko, to defeat Michigan 4-2 Friday. Ken Hay fired a five-hitter for the victory. Minnesota shut out Northwestern 3 0 with unbeater PlvkMiel-ke notching his seventh victory. Illinois scored its first Big Ten triumph in 13 games by downing Purdue 6-L There was no explanation for the round, which tied the tournament record, except maybe rest. “I hadn’t played in nine days,” said Casper. “I figured I’d kick around a couple of days and play well on the weekend. I’m just a day ahead of schedule.” Trailing Casper at 134 were defending champion Tony Lerna and muscular Mike Souchak. Lerna had a 66 to go with his first-round 68. Souchak added a 65 to his earlier 69. Doug Sanders, Gene Littler and David Boies were grouped at 135. Sanders had a 68, Littler a 69 and Boies a 66.

Perennial favorite Arnold Palmer had his troubles, including a double bogey on the par five No. 16, and stumbled in with a 73 for 139. Jack Nicklaus, after bogeying No. 2, finished with a 70 for a 142. There were 74 sub-par rounds Friday over the 6,466-yard, 34-36 —70 Colonial Country Club course.
