Await New Names In Fix The Hammond Times Formerly Lake County Times SPORTS Thursday. May 25. 1961 Page D-l Freiberger Gives Views TIME OUT! By Jeff Keate Northwest Crews Eye State "Lemon or SPECULATING By JOHN WHITAKER in SPORTS TJ7EST LAFAYETTE, that the Big Ten Confer- TT ence was remotely involved in the mushrooming college bas- ketball scandal cast no pall over the annual Purdue-Illinois golf, tea and prime ribs spectacular Wednesday on the famed South Course. Commissioner Kenneth L. Wilson and Bill Reed, who replaces Wilson on July 1, were anything but alarmed after reading carbons of wire stories from New York which told of how Connie Hawkins, 6-7 Iowa freshman (until 8 days ago) had been paid by a New- York gambler to "contact" college players. (Hawkins was quoted later in the day by a Dubuque, la. writer to the effect that "I didn't line up any Big Ten players for them. It was just guys I knew from high school in New Obviously the Big Ten Commissioner's office anticipated attempts by gamblers to fix Conference games: otherwise they wouldn't have had sleuths checking betting odds and keeping close tab on coaches. By LOREN TATE Times Sports Writer A trim crew of athletes from Hoosierland's prestige-minded upper northwest will invade Indianapolis Saturday with in- tent to prove once again that the "sons of industry" are the ruling class in Indiana prep sports competition. Gary Roosevelt's Panthers are favored u> capture their third consecutive track cham- pionship and their 6th in 11 years at Indianapolis Tech Field. LaPorte is the defending golf titlist and will be backed by Calumet Region entries Hammond High and Gary Wal- lace at Coffin Course. It is difficult to imagine Gary Roosevelt faltering. Coach Jim Leek has two sparkling relay teams and seven individuals including senior speedster Rich Callo- wav. ALSO FIGURING in the meet is an East Chicago Wash- ington team built almost ex- clusively around Bernard Rivers and Clarence Robinson. Rivers, a sophomore who took second in the state 100- yard dash last year, will at- tempt to reverse two record- breaking sprint losses to Cal- loway in last week's regional. Robinson is a contender in the CLIFF FREIBERGER broad jump and high hurdles. Both are members of a half- mile relay team which should place unless a spike injury in Richie Rodger's heel prevents him from running. "Anything can happen in the state says Freiberger. "Roosevelt will be hurt in the field events and if we get full production from Rivers and Robinson we could be a factor. Gary Roosevelt is favored in the relays but I've seen some strange things happen in those events. "CAN RIVERS beat Callo- Who can say. There wasn't six inches dfference be- BERNARD RIVERS tween them in the 100 Satur- day. In fact, from where I stood I thought Rivers won. A picture was taken of the finish and it showed Calloway at the tape with Rivers just an in- stant away. "Rivers is confident he can win this adds Frei- berger. "Robinson had an 'off day' at Mishawaka and we should be happy he qualified. He didn't warm up properly and didn't run his normal hurdle race. We have some great hurdlers in this Grudzinski of Hobart, Don Bayer of Emerson and Clay Leek of Gary anyone who wins will have to be sharp. "Robinson learned his les- son Saturday and should come back strong. This is his last outdoor season. He won't be eligible after the indoor season next points out Frei- berger. WHILE GARY ROOSEVELT does not figure in the four field events, tne Calumet Region does not have to apolo- gize for its entries. Dan Jones of Valparaiso is the only thinclad who figures in three field events. He won the pole vault and broacl jump at Mishawaka and tied for first in the high jump with Adam Kocal of Hammond High. Kocal, who took second in the state last year, appears to be reaching his peak. He cleared 6-2'-. was as high as anyone else More Involved, Says Indicted NYU Star NEW YORK Parocky, one of the latest players named in the college basketball scandals, today revealed that "there's plenty more to come." The New York University court star said that during a half-dozen secret appearances before a New York County grand jury he rec- ognized "a lot of basketball players" who haven't been identified yet in the point-shaving investigations. "Maybe some of them were just called in for general questioning and Paprocky said. "But I think they're going to involve more guys before this thing is over."

Purdue, as usual, won the golf competition. President Frederick L. Hovde outscored Dr. David D. Henry, the niini prexy, 82 to 95. Athletic Director Guy (Red) Mackey fired a 78 against the 84 posted by Doug Mills. The Illini's 'Pete Elliott also authored a 78 to ward off Jack Mollenkopf's leason-best of 83 but Ray Eddy, the Purdue basketball coach, clinched it for the Boilermakers by out-jungling Harry Combes, these free-swingers losing count while bouncing balls of the oaks, elms and hickories that line the South Course fairways. Purdue hopes for a sweep were ruined by a pair ol free- loading sports writers, one a graduate ol Illinois and the other (George Bellinger) an IU product, who did a fricasee job on Joe Rudolph, Purdue alumni secretary, and Jim Snook, the Boilermakers' ace contact man in the Calu- met. Oratory was held to a minimum at the "Hills" but both Presidents, looking like plain Joes in gayly colored sport shirts, were up to the occasion. It's entirely possible that there'll be golf buggies on lake, a 6-3, 195-pounder from Franklin, O. And North- western, always pleading a shortage of talent, nudged Purdue in the race for at least four top drawer footballers. Purdue and Illinois grid staffs are agreed that the Illini pick- ed off the best fullback-line- backer prospect of the last five years in Rich Butkus, the 225-pounder from Chicago Vo- cational.
