SPORTS HIGHLIGHTS By James (Sonny) Boozer COYOTES TOP REBELS, 66-51 Last Friday night Phoenix won its fourth straight victory by downing South High 66 to 51. For South it was their first loss of the season after four victories. Freddie Carr spairked the Coyotes by grabbing 23 rebounds, tipping missed baskets and blocking Rebel shots. The 6-4, 16-year old junior was called for goal tending in the second half. Carr shared scoring honors with Stan Liggins each scored 18 points. At one point of the gamp the two teams were only two points apart. Then Junior Lawrence “found the range” for 6 quick points to widen the Coyote lead. Lawrence ended the night with 12 points. Hector (Caspar' Gaspar pushed in 10 baskets plus a charity toss to take scoring laurels for both teams for a total of 21. PHOENIX COLLEGE SPLITS DOUBLEHEADER WITH PALAMAR The P C Bears downed Palamar Saturday, 76-59, but bowed Friday 87-65. Luther Harper hit 13 consecutive Points and ended the night with 25. He was followed by Dick Ervin with 23. AAU Disapproves Hayes 9.2 Hundred Last Saturday the AAU grimly announced it was approving 56 American records but disapprov ing Hayes’. Only statement was that the start er at Miami had used a .22 caliber gun, that such a starter “must use a .32 caliber pistol or larger lor an event in which a record can be recognized.” John Crittenden, enterprising re porter for the Miami Daily News, penned a searching article on the incident and discovered that the use of a .22 is quite common in Florida events. Last weekend the AAU made the terse announcement that it had disallowed as a world record the 9.2 second 100-yard dash of Flor ida A-& M’s Robert Hayes, run at the University of Miami February 17, 1962. The meet starter h ad disobeyed a critical rule and used a .22 caliber pistol instead of one of .32 caliber, as specified in the AAU rules. Shocking insubordination! So the AAU has punished the Starter by striking the record. No matter about young Hayes. He was just iii the way. To rehash, the A & M speedster made his great dash on a standard University of Miami track. The distance was proper. The lane lines were white and the wind was minimal. Most timers had him at 9.2. One had him at 9.1. He’d made history and later took a European tour with other crack American track stars, even made an overnight trip into Russia, where a scheduled meet with the Soviets was called off. A couple of months ago the Flor- Pima County Gets 630 Acre Patent Title to 630 acres of the national land reserve located about five miles northeast of Ajo, Arizona, has been transferred to the Pima County Parks and Recreation Board by the U. S. Bureau of Land Management. The patent, issued last Friday by Roy T. Helmandollar, Manager of the Bureau’s Arizona Land Of fice, provides for the development and maintenance of a golf course, family picnic areas, tennis courts, camping area, riding and hiking trails, a ball field and rifle and ar chery ranges. Helmandollar stated the land, transferred under the provisions of the Recreation and Public Pur poses Act, was sold to the Coun ty for $2.50 an acre. This is in accordance with the pricing sched ule established by Secretary of the Interior Stewart L. Udall. ida AAU nominated him for the i Sullivan Award and honored him and his coach, Pete Griffin, at an annual luncheon, held here in Tampa. Th'e .22 Bullets Were Cheaper George Duganne was the starter ; in Miami. “In the 15 years that I have 1 been starting races in Florida,” said Duganne, “I have used start ing guns dozens of times which didn’t meet record specifications. It is common practice to use the smaller guns when no records are expected to be involved be cause it’s cheaper.” Blanks for the .32’s cost seven cents each. Fifty of the 22’s can be purchased for less than a dol lar, Duganne explained. The meet chairman is respons ible for supplying the starting gun. Vince Lally was the chairman. “We would have used the Uni versity of Miami’s .38 caliber gun, but it was being repaired,” said Duganne. , St. Mary's Star ]Hlli isl. mi THOMPSON: St. Mary’s Top Athlete | Steve Thompson, 6-1, 170 pound- J er from St. Mary’s High School, plans to go to Arizona State Uni r versity.
