Laurel Leader Call (Newspaper) - January 30, 1964, Laurel, Mississippi More Peisonal Attention For Tornado Football Men An addition to the coaching staff is certain to afford more personal attention to young men who participate in football training of the Laurel High School Golden Tornado, Barney Poole, head coach, said Thursday. Effective Monday, David Kelley, head football coach at Jones Junior High School for the past two seasons, joins the Tornado coaching staff as coach of the ends, Poole announced. “We’re proud to have Coach Kelley with us,” Poole declared, “and we’ll now be able to give more personal attention to the many young football men who report for training.” Edwin Taylor, now in his fifth year at Laurel and assistant coach at Jones Junior High School for the past four years, will be the head football coach there, effective Monday. A NEW COACH Joining Taylor as assistant coach is Norman E. Minton, who starred in high school football at Brookhaven. He attended Ole Miss one year, then graduated at Copiah-Lincoln Junior College and Mississippi College. Taylor is a graduate of Jones County Junior College and the University of Southern Mississippi. Kelley is a graduate of Mississippi State University, where he starred in football and was All-Southeastern Conference end Spring practice for the Golden Tornado will begin in late February. Poole said. His staff now includes Hal Easterwood, line coach; Joe Watson, assistant line coach; Zerk Wilson, backfield coach; and Kelley, end coach. “We expect more than 80 boys in spring training,” Poole said, “and with a five man staff we ll be able to afford them more personal attention than ever afforded a Golden Tornado training roster.” KILLED ON RABBIT HUNT Bill Lovett, Route 0.

Not so. The Jaycee team, bolstered by basketball coaches in the city school system, could have come up with a run-away victory. And that wouldn’t have been good for the Red Heads, who are billed as the nation’s top professional girls team in basketball. Despite the close score that went into the record books, the Jaycees coasted home. And seldom has there been such coasting. To hold down the lead, a Jaycee goal from the field was counted as one point rather than two And Red Head goals from the foul lines were counted as two points rather than one. But the some 800 fans who attended enjoyed the game. The clowning of the girls was especially good. Too. the game had a most magnificent purpose. It was a benefit in which the profits go to the Jones County Heart Fund. Derby Favorite Finishes Third MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - Roman Brother, the colt some Floridians think will win the Kentucky Derby, made his first start of the year at Hialeah Wednesday and finished third in a field of eight. Roman Brother gave away from five to nine pounds to rivals, packing top weight of 122 in the seven-furlong feature. He was ridden by Manuel Ycaza, who came from California to do the job. The race was won by Greentree Stable’s Delirium under 117 pounds in tile modest time of 1:24 2-5. High Finance finished second. BOWLING By TED SMITS Associated Press Sports Editor INNSBRUCK. Austria (AP)-Austria's dashing Egon Zimmerman flashed to a course record victory in the men s downhill ski race — glamor event of the Olympics — and America s high hopes crumbled on a sour note today in the ninth Winter Games. Three more championships were in the ninth Wanter Olympics Games. The United States is still without a medal. Hie bitterest disappointment came in the downhill, where the two seeded U.S. aces, Billy Kidd of Stowe, Vt., and Bud Werner of Steamboat Springs, Colo. — finished far out of the running. One of Uncle Sam s unheralded skiers, Annibale <Ni) Orsi. a 19-year-old student from Stockton, Calif., turned in the best clocking, 2 minutes, 21.59 seconds for 14th place. The favored Zimmerman's winning time was 2:18 17. the fastest ever down the precipitous. 3,412-yard Mount Patscher-kofel where a young Australian met his death in training last week. REFUSED TO TAKE Kidd. Werner and anotehr U.S. veteran skier, Chuck Ferries of Houghton, Mich., barricaded themselves behind a police barrier immediately after the disappointing race and refused to talk to newsmen. Reporters who sought interviews were roughed up by the guards. Kidd's time was 2:21.82 for 16th, Werner's 2 22.05 for 17th, and Ferries’ 2:23.00 for 20th. Prior to the race the American contingent had protested strongly against the omission of say of their skiers from the top seeded group. International ski officials finally gave in and put Kidd and Werner in the top 16. A 20-year-old Finnish border customs employe. Eero Maenty-aranta, won the .^-kilometer— 18.6 miles—ski race in I hour. 30 minutes, 50.7 seconds and sewed a record-smashing 1-2-3 sweep in the women's 500-metcr speed skating event. GIRLS DO WELL The United States made its I best showing of the day in the women's 500-meter speed skating race, a European specialty, with Jeanne Ashworth of Lake Placid. N Y., and Jan Smith ol Rochester. NY, tying for fourth place. The gold medal was won by the husky Lidia Skoblikova. a double winner in the 1960 games at Squaw' Valley, Calif,, in 45 j seconds flat. She and two of her! teammates — lrinia Yegorova, j 45.4, and Tatyana Sidorova, j 45.5, all beat the Olympic rec- ! Ord of 45.9 set by Belga Haase ! of East Germany four years ago The two American gills clocked 46.2. The Yanks never were in contention in the 30-kilometer ski race, traditionally dominated by Scandinavians. Mike Elliott, the 21-year old Fort Lewis College student from Durango. Colo., finished 30th in I hour, 40 minutes, 11.7 seconds for the best U.S. showing. Dick Taylor of Laconia, N H . was 42nd in; Larry Damon of Burlington. Vt.. 46th in 1:42:57.7, and Jim Shea of Lake Placid, N.Y., 48th in | 1:43.18.4. Marie Lawler, a 19-year-old high school girl from Minneapolis. showed a lot ot spunk by competing in the Womens j speed skating race despite an I overnight attack of shin splints, ! a form of muscle ailment. She ! clocked 46.6 for seventh place, j Maentyranta, who many observers said was washed up. j was flushed and tired after completing the more than 18-I mile ski course Owner Of Athletics Gets 2-Week Extension Commissioner Ford Frick Stands For Uniform Law WASHINGTON 'AP' — Base ball Commissioner Ford Frick endorsed today a hill proposing uniform antitrust exemptions for professional baseball, football. basketball and hockey. He told the Senate Antitrust anc! Monopoly subcommittee he understood the measure would permit continued self regulation by baseball, extend the same right to the other sports and end confusion now surrounding their antitrust status. SERVES THE PUBLIC Self-regulation by baseball. Frick said in prepared testimony. “has well served the public and the game.** The confusion Frick mentioned stems from Supreme Court decisions which have exempted baseball from antitrust regulation since 1922 but not the other sports. The prepared statements of all concerned in the hearings remained strictly silent on a temper sparking issue w hich interested all of them—the efforts of Charles O. Finley, owner of the Kansas City Athletics, to moved his American League team to Louisville or Oakland. The league has refused lo permit him to move, and Finley has threatened to sue. Sen. Edward V l^ong. D Mo , told a reporter the subcommittee had notified Finley's lawyers that Finley would he welcome if he cared to testify about his troubles. Long said there has been no indication Finley will show up at these or later hearings. Chairman Philip A. Hart. D-Mich., had announced the subcommittee would invite but not compel testimony from Finley. Hart, in a statement for the hearing, warned baseball moguls that Congress has an eye on the imbalance in baseball which secs some clubs chronic losers, others equally chronic winners. There has been grumbling off and on that teams rich in talent tend to trade good players only among themselves, presumably because weaker clubs have little top notch talent to trade off. KANSAS CITY (AP)-Charles O. Finley and the city are farther apart then ever over a stadium lease for his Athletics and Finley has gained new confidence from a two-week extension of the American League’s lease-or-else ultimatum. Finley rejected, at a 90-minute session Wednesday, two four-year city proposals he had taken under advisement Saturday. He insisted he would risk bankruptcy by signing for more than two years. The city wouldn’t back down from its stand that at least four years is vital to recapture support of the fans, and to stabilize the troubled franchise. NO NEW MEETING No new meeting was set andj no new proposals are under consideration. Finley threatened to go to court after the American League turned down by a 9-1 vote his bid to move to Louisville Jan 16 and by the same vote ordered him to sign a lease with Kansas City by Feb. I or face expulsion from the league. Joe Cronin, league president, extended the deadline to Feb. 15 a short tmie before Wednesday’s meeting, at the request of Finley’s attorney, Louis Nizer. Finley went to Oakland after Saturday's session here and obtained a firm commitment to play there next season, should the league approve. But the league ignored Finley's request for a new meeting to consider a move to Oakland. Basketball Team Scores 211 Points DEQUINCY, La. (AP) - The mismatch of the year—possibly any year: Grand Ave. High of DeQuincy beat Audrey Memorial High of Cameron 211-29 — in basketball Wednesday night. Raymond Clarkston scored 48 points for the victors and four of his teammates each got over 20 points.
