Aging Early Wynn Refuses
To Yield To Old Father Time
Associated Press Sports writer
SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) At 41,
Early Wynn refuses to yield to
Father Time. Although he has lost
some of the hop on his fast ball
and he may need an extra day
of rest between assignments, the
burly right-hander is still the solid
man of the Chicago White Sox
pitching staff.
UCLA Seeking
Hoop Victories
Victories Friday night and Sat
urday night would give UCLA's
Bruins their finest basketball rec
ord since 1957 and second place
in the Big Five. Southern Cali
fornia already has clinched the
conference title.
The Bruins (5-5) meet Stanford
(3-7) and USC (8-2) faces Cali
fornia (4-6) in a doubleheader Fri
day night at the. Los Angeles
Sports Arena.
The four clubs switch foes Sat
urday in a Los Angeles double
header that closes the regular
season for all four.
Washington, finished with Big
Five play, is in second place with
a 6-6 record. The Huskies enter
tain Idaho in a non-conference
game Friday night and close
their season Saturday night with
the traditional game against
Washington State at Seattle.
Two UCLA wins would shove
the Bruins past . Washington into
second place.
Cal's Golden Bears, conference
champs the past two seasons,
started out with six straight
league defeats. But Coach Rene
Herrcrias' men have won four
straight. If the Bears can main
tain their momentum against USC
and UCLA, Cal could clamber
into a second-place tie.

Wynn is fully aware that he
must hang up his glove some
time but he insists it won't be
for at least three or four more
"Why. the addition of two new
teams alone will add another year
or two to my career," he said.
Wynn is more concerned with
this year than he is with the
"I need 16 victories to reach
300," he pointed out. "I want
those games more than anything
I've ever wanted in my life. I'll
get them, too, but I'd like to get
them this year. I think I will,
provided I don't get hurt."
Wynn won only 13 games last
year but he finished strong, win
ning il in the second half of the
Wynn figures he should win
from 16 to 20 games this year.
The rugged campaigner, who will
be starting his 21st year in the
American League, calls himself a
fortunate man for being around
so long.
"There aren't many 35 or older
guys around," he said. "You've
got to be lucky to stay around as
long as I have."
Segregation End
Seen By Perini
Perini, owner of the Milwaukee
Braves, believes that the end of
segregation for Negro baseball
players in the South is "just
around the corner" if baseball
men are permitted to do the job.
"The time for integration will
come soon so soon that it's right
around the corner," Perini said.
"But let us in baseball do it by
ourselves, without the interference
of would-be-do-gooders. These peo
ple want to make political capital
out of the situation and take
credit for the job when it's already
done. -
"It is baseball's job. We want
it to happen. It will happen, but
not by some great demonstration
which builds up to threat and
more resistance."
Perini came here to see his 1961
candidates work out and to discuss
plans for the season with club off
cials. I

and Olympian Peter Close.
Sullivan got a standing ovation
from the 13,000 fans in Los Angeles
earlier this winter when he ran
a 4:13.7 mile.

Archers Hold
Members of the South Umpqua
Archers from Myrtle Creek, Can
yonville, Roseburg and Riddle dem
onstrated their skills with the bow
and arrow recently for the Riddle
Volunteer Fire Department.
According to Erma Best, Riddle
correspondent, the archers per
formed in the Riddle Fire Hall.
Ron Mahoney, president of the
club, was in charge of the pro
gram which included exhibitions of
marksmanship by individual adults
and children, and family groups.
A shot with a blunt shaft which
penetrated an inch into a solid
board was used to exemplify the
dangers of allowing children to use
the weapon indiscriminately.
me archers also brought along a
display of bows, arrows and quiv
ers. Assistant fire chief, Kenneth
Bond, complimented the visitors on
their sportsmanship saying, "they
neither complained nor apologized
when their marksmanship was off
due to poor lighting in the hall."
The Riddle firemen and their
families served refreshments at the
close of the program.

Much Bonus Money
Boom Boom Geotfrion already
has earned $3,600 in bonus money
this season and by right he should
share some of it with the New
York Rangers.
The star Montreal right wing
man scored three times Thursday
night as the Canadiens moved into
a tie for first pluce with Toronto
in the National Hockey League by
beating the Rangers 61. Detroit
clinched a Stanley Cup playoff
spot by defeating Boston 5-2 in the
only other game. .
Geoffrion's goals gave him 46
for the season and 300 for his
career. His 1960-61 contract calls
for a $1,000 bonus for scoring 20
times and $100 for each goal over
that total. In the seven games
against the Rangers at Montreal's
Forum, all won by the Canadiens,
Geotfrion had 14 goals.
