Hardfought Win
In Tilt Here
Last Night
The issue was in doubt
right down to the wire last
night but when the smoke of
battle had cleared, the Key
West High School cage ag
gregation ended up with a
hardfought 44-39 win over
the Redlands cagers on the
high school hardwood.
The Conchs gained the
win on the basys of the in
spired scoring play of center
Bob Sawyer, who almost sin
gle handedly handed the
locals the win with a one
man scoring exhibition in
the closing seconds of the
After the two clubs matched
points in a nip and tuck exhibi
tion throughout the early stages of
the contest, with but seconds re
fnaining the Key Westers, sparked
by Sawyer, pulled into the slim,
game winning lead.
The contest, which was just about
as close as it could have been, in
creased the Key West lead over
the visitors to two games in their
four year series of meetings.
The game started out slowly with
the teams matching each other,
point for point and as the half be
gan to run out they were dead
locked at 16-16. Only a tight Key
West defense which never gave the
visitors a chance to get set, saved
the day when they had trouble find
ing the basket. The visitors dom
inated the play under the basket
tfs well and the Conchs were hard
put to stay in the ballgame. The
locals fast break was working to
perfection but their shooting left
something to be desired.
The halftime whistle found Red
lands in the lead Oy a 23-21 mar
gin when Engel, who led their
scoring attack for the evening, j
sank a long set shot.
The third quarter started out in
the same, fashion. Scrappy Glynn
ball at tots point and Sawyer hit
Archer and’ Stu Logun played fine
repeatedly with layups to aid the
Conchs cause.
Again, the Conchs worked the
ball in nicely but they jqst couldn’t
hit for consistent scores.
.It was'Sawjrer who put them
hack into the game when he hit
again, this time from the outside
to give the Conchs a 32-31 kicker
at the end of the third stanza.
Jimmy Solomon put the Conchs
into a 35-33 lead early in the
fin‘at period and the visitors came
back to tie it up.
Sawyer's foul shot, the first of
three successful tries late in the
game, made the score 36-35.
Stu Logun increased the Conch
lead with a layup moments later,
3S-3S as the Conch fans went into
a frenzy.
With a minute and a I.alf to play
the Redlands five pulled to within
one point of the Conchs but Sawyer
sank another from under the hoop
to give the locals the game win
ning edge.
It was Sawyer and Logun with
H and 11 points respectively that
sparked the locals to the win.

In five years, Beverly Hanson
came from almost a disinterest in
golf to complete love of the game
and a sincere, mature desire to
have a part of extending the bene
fits of the game to more people
throughout the country.
“It’s the finest game there is, for
the largest number of people,” she
says sincerely.' “You’re never too
young or too old, too rich or too
poor, to have the pleasure and the
physical benefits of golf.
“I realize I’m young and rela
tively new at the game, but al
ready I know that you meet the
finest people playing golf. Fine
people, fun, sport, and healthful
exercise what more could any
one ask of a recreation?”
Bev believes that she can best
do her part in promoting golf as a
member of the MacGregor Golf
staff. She has no immediate plans
to be a golf instructor. Instead, she
will continue to play in all the ma
jor tournaments find give exhibi
tions and clinics as time permits.
As for her views on improving
an individual’s golf game, she
says, simply, “Work at the game,
especially the mechanics of the
swing, get good and continuing pro
fessional instruction, use good
equipment, . . . and keep at it!”
Regarding her own career in
golf, Bev says “Naturally I want
to win every tournament. But I
also want to do everything I can
to promote and develop a game
that is so all-around perfect for so
many people.”

PHILADELPHIA (*—Apparently
National Football League owners
believe their $30,000 a year com
missioner has been crying in his
beer—probably the brew that spon
sors the league’s television and
radio programs.
NFL boss Bert Bell has been
bemoaning the financial status of
the majority of his 12 team league
But last night, the owners had
their say. In effect, they told Bell
that there is nothing wrong with
the financial structure of their
league. They did it by rejecting a
Bell proposal to rut squads to a
limit of 30 players thereby saving
some 20 or 25 thousand dollars per
team a year.
Asa result, each club wiU be
allowed 33 men on the active ros
ter with an indefinite number of
“injured” players available if they
have been on the required reserve
list for 20 days. Actually, this
means a club will be able to carry
up to 40 players. Players can be
switched from the injured to the
active lists as needs dictate
The action was a slap in the face
for the cum mission-?r and he acted
that way in making the announce

Together, they won the an
total of 67 games ftr the In ' -

But while they cry “We v, :* c

pay cut ready for a fourth Indian
pitcher—Bob Feller.
Feller hasn’t received his con
tract yet—he’s due back in Cleve
land today—but persons close to
the club said it is almost a cer
tainty that he’ll get reduced.
He had a poor showing of nine
victories and 13 losses last season
and was believed earning $50,000
on the strength of a great preced

Whatever Feller is cut, it seemed
likely that it won’t make up for
all the money his fellow pitchers
are asking. The requested salar

believed to be roughly as follows:

Feller’s cut, at most, would
amount to 25 per cent, or $12,500,
assuming the $50,000 is accurate.

was expressed by Garcia down at
the stadium yesterday, even
