Tulsans Trip Skins In Three Overtimes =ME !BMW PIMP Tulsa Rogers failed to yield to the pressure of th ree overtime periods and eyed out a 57-56 victory over Capitol Hill in the Oral Roberts basketball tourney Thursday at Tulsa. With the score tied 48-all at the 'end of regulation play, the Redskins' Allen Dukes hit a field goal while Tulsa Rogers' John Harris garnered two points from the foul line to send the game into the second overtime. With both teams playing cautiously, neither could hit the winning bucket in the second period. James La c k e y, high man for the Redskins with 27 points, hit two field goals in the final overtime but Tulsa's John Harris sank one gratis toss and Mark Sizemore added two field goals, his last the winning goal. Capitol Hill had the ball but couldn't get off a shot before the buzzer sounded ending the game. Sizemore was high for Rogers with 19 points. In the Okmulgee tournament, Sapulpa routed Crooked Oaks 80-53, as four players scored in double figures. Harry French hit 21 points as Sapulpa broke open a 27-21 game with a withering 36-11 burst in the third quarter. Jerry James was high for the Rufnex with 13 points. Other games at Okmulgee saw Dewar nip Henryetta, 62-61; Tulsa East Central clip Sand Springs, 70-69; and Okmulgee maul. Cushing, 62-42. Glenn Bun-tin of Sand Springs was the day's high scorer with 23 points. Winners at Northeast/ 1 State were Sallisaw, Sequoyah

Overton Named Coach-Of-Year By DOYLE MAY Four high-scoring stars from the Mid-State Conference and a do-everything guard from the Boomer Conference comprise the Oklahoma Journal's 1969 All-Metropolitan high school basketball team announced Sunday. Steve Mitchell, the 6-10 skyscraper who has Northwest going after its second straight Class AAA championship this weekend, was named player-of- the-year. Coach-of-the-year honors go to Claudell Overton, whose Capitol Hill Redskins finished a surprising third in the Mid-State Conference and then won a regional championship over the weekend to qualify for the state meet starting Thursday at Fairgrounds arena. Joining the brawny Mitchell on the first team are 6-3 Allan Dukes of Capitol Hill, 6-4 Clay Hoster of U.S. Grant, 6-4 Marvin Rich of Douglass, and 6-0 Dave Fisher of Moore. All are seniors with the exception of Fisher, a talented junior who won the Boomer scoring title with a fat 22.9 average while sparking the Lions to 14 victories. Mitchell, one of the most sought-after prepsters ever produced in Oklahoma, has surpassed the expectations of everyone this season while developing into a complete player. Oklahoma State coach Henry Iba, who knows something about the game, watched Mitchell pour in a school record of 49 points against Southeast and observed: "I was surprised at his speed. I knew he had a fine touch and could rebound, but I never knew he could get down the floor so quick." Mitchell has scored 495 points in 23 games this season for a 21.5 average. The Knights have won 22 games and 32 of their last 33 starts. He has been the most prolific scorer in the large-school circles the last half of the season after averaging only about 15 points through the Knights' first eight starts. "He's vastly improved this season" offered his coach, Don Van Pool. "In fact, he's improved over the last month." However, Mitchell's average is only fourth best among the members of the first team. Grant's fabulous outside shooter, Hoster, packs a 23.4 average on 585 points in 25 games. Rich, a repeater from last year's all-star team, scored four total points less for a 23.2 mark. Fisher averaged 22.9, and Dukes 20.2. HOSTER GUIDED Grant to a 17-8 season, which was much better than rival coaches expected of Don Metheny's Generals. Hoster, a well-coordinated youngster who has the tools to become a great college guard, scored a school record of 42 points in a 99-63 rout of John Marshall. He was in the 30s on three other occasions, and never scored less than 12 points in a single game this season. Like Mitchell, he is being courted by numerous major schools, including such powers as Davidson, North Carolina and several Big Eight Conference schools. John Cheatham No All-Star, But As the New York Giants were staging their miracle march to the 1951 National League pennant, manager Leo Durocher observed of his fiery little second baseman Eddie Stanky: "He can't hit, he can't run and he can't throw. All he can do is win." By basketball standards, that description fits John Cheatham. Because of his size (5-9) and limited ability, there is no room for Cheatham on either the first or second team of the Journal's All-Metropolitan selections. But without the heady little playmaker, Northwest certainly would not have won the Class AAA championship last year. Nor would Don Van Pool's Knights have rolled up a 22-1 mark this season, win the Mid-State Conference title and earn the top seed in the upcoming state tournament. The "quarterback" of the Knights thus is awarded a special "most valuable player" award in the Journal selections. The guy he kept feeding the ball to the past two seasons, 6-10 Steve Mitchell, is the player-ofthe-year. He's The MVP Cheatham averaged only 8.5 points during the season. scoring 188 points. The Knights lost their only game to Douglass, 67-65, when John was playing on a lame ankle. "He's the sparkplug that makes us go.'• praised Van Pool. He runs the show for us. When we get in trouble, we want him to have the ball. He'll get it down the floor for us.•• Because of the imposing size of the Knights, opposing coaches often feel Northwest is vulnerable to a pressing defense. That's when Cheatham takes charge. His excellent ball-handling and passing have enabled the Knights to survive practically any defense. Cheatham has been known to break open a game with deadly outside shooting although he admits "my job is to get the ball into Steve and Ron (Raunborg)." Whe Midwest City's zone choked off the big pair with a combined total of 14 points, Cheatham came through with six long-distance goals that helped the Knights win, 45-42. He performed similiar heroics against Bartlesville Sooner ( 16 ), Marlow ( 15 ) , Douglass ( 14 ) Mountain View (16 ) and Tulsa Central (11 ).

Like Mitchell, he is being courted by numerous major schools, including such powers as Davidson, North Carolina and several Big Eight Conference schools. Dukes likewise was a deadly outside shooter for Capitol Hill, but the rangy scholar also drives well and is an outstanding rebounder. Dukes and 5-10 James Lackey, who is on the second All-Metro team, combined for a 38.2 average to form the most explosive tandem in the city area. OTHER MEMBERS of the second team are Danny O'Toole of Casady, 6-8 Larry Tribble of Midwest City, 6-5 Mike Fleming, who led Northeast to a regional championship, and 6-7 Mike Polansky of Putnam City. O'Toole led all area scorers with 672 points in 24 games for a 28.0 average. He was also an outstanding football player for the Cyclones and is an excellent golfer. Rich scored 30 or more points on seven different occasions this season, and had a great regional tournament last week when the Trojans got through the Midwest City meet after being upset by Lawton in the one-game playoffs. FISHER WAS the big surprise in the Boomer this season. A so-so player as a sophomore, the dead-panned junior scored 503 points in 22 games, including a school record of 49 against Chickasha. A smooth ball-handler, he often was used on the post by coach Jack Ray. Overton, one of Oklahoma's all-time great shooters as a player at East Central, finally hit the jackpot at Capitol Hill after four lean seasons. He had produced winning teams at Edmond, Drumright and Bacone Junior College before accepting the challenge of rebuilding the only mighty Redskins—a chore he apparently has completed.

S. Grant, 45-40, before 1,500 fans in Capitol Hill Sports Arena Saturday night and win its way into next week's Class AAA state high school basketball tournament. Lackey dropped 16 points and tied with Grant's Clay Hoster for scoring honors in a game which started out as cold as the weather outside as the initial quarter wound up in a 4-all stalemate. It was touch-and-go until the final quarter, with the Generals enjoying a 16-15 margin at halftime and a 32-31 edge at the three-quarter mark. Not once could the losers build up more than a four-point lead during this span and once the Redskins edged in front 25-24 with five minutes left in the third round. Lackey sent the Skins into a 33-32 lead with a pair of free throws at the outset of the final quarter, but Hoster dropped a charity try 1.o tie the score at 33-all with 7:24 left. That was the dying gasp of the Generals, who failed to score again for more than four minutes as the Redskins, taking good care of the ball, moved into a 40-33 livan with 3:35 to go. Hoster hit from the corner 15 seconds later but the Capitol Hill stall gave Grant few opportunities and two of these were muffed when the ball was turned back to the Skins on bad passes. Lackey and Danny Shouse traded free throws at the outset of the Capitol Hill game of keep-away and Hoster and Steve Corder counted from outside for the los fore big Tony Gaeddart took a long pass to wind up Capi- tol Hill scoring at the horn. The victory squared the Capitol Hill-U. S. Grant competition at 2-2 this season and gave the Redskins an 18-7 mark to carry into the state tournament. The Generals wound up play with a 17-8 mark.

S. 1 , 2 THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1969 No. 41 At Capitol Hill High Giant Homecoming Friday It probably is a good thing Winston Howard doesn't have to run for office next year. He might finish last. Howard is an anomaly in Oklahoma politics—a Little Dixie Democrat appointed to head one of the most sensitive state agencies by a Republican governor. Last December Howard made it in one jump from the capitol basement, where he was finance director for the state department of education, to the third floor where he became state budget director. It was one of those frying - pan - into - the - fire leaps and, since the pay wasn't that much more, the former school teacher found himself wondering more than once why he did it. He said something at that time to this reporter about the "challenge" of his new job. He has not found it wanting in that respect. At la st report, Howard was about halfway through a series of meetings with the heads of state agencies at which he was extracting information about how they have managed the money given their departments in the past. This was not calculated to win him new friends, since the departments never be- fore have been called to account by the budget office, contenting themselves with explaining things to legislative ' committees. Howard is the one who advises the chief executive about what departments should get in the governor's budget message to the legislature. Since the budget director's suggestions carry weight, his probing of economies—or lack of them—instituted by departments is fraught with meaning. At least one agency director has left his office muttering, "we've got to do something about that Howard." He heard about the moment and laughingly said: "I'm not worried about it. I expect to be 'gotten' some day." He took a break from these meetings last week to make• a speech in which he told a group of school teachers not to expect much more from the state since 70 cents of every state dollar aleady goes for education. "We've got to enlarge the pot that this money is corning from," he said, "either by industrializing the state or raising taxes. And I don't think the people are about to go for more taxes." One of the teachers afterward thanked him even though, she said, "it isn't what we wanted to hear." Howard still smiles a lot. He may be thinking fondly about that basement office. David Craighead Budget Chief Under The Gun Howard Cross-Country Team Long On Eagerness NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma cross-country team will be short on experience but long on eagerness, according to coach Gary Lower, who begins his second year at the helm. The Sooners have scheduled three duals, a triangular plus three meets — the State Federation meet at Norman, Big Eight at Manhattan, Kan., and NCAA at Bronx, N.Y. The first dual meet is with Arkansas at Fayetteville Oct. 4. Junior Craig Wise of Midwest City and sophomore John Musgrove of Tulsa Edison are the only veterans from last year's team which had a 2-1-1 dual record and finished eighth in the Big Eight meet. Wise holds Otis outdoor mile record and finished 44th in the Big Eight with 14:36.0 while Musgrove was 42nd with 15:33.0. Biggest loss was that of captain Bill Blewitt. Letterman Bill Inglehart did not return to school. Bolstering the squad will be squadmen Butch Clifton of McAlester and Curtis Hancock of Oklahoma City Floats, pom-poms, queens and alumni will dominate the Capitol Hill-Midwest City game .Friday at Capitol Hill as former students return for the school's 41st Homecoming. Sponsored by the Capitol Hill Activities and Alumni Associations the Homecoming will be centered around a Mother Goose theme and will feature 20 floats designed by student organizations and Capitol Hill merchants. Midwest City is 2-0 for the season and is favored for the AAA Mid-State crown while Capitol Hill has a 0-2 season record. Kicking off the events will be a parade at 3:30 p.m. starting at SW 22nd and Robinson and continuing south to Commerce Street. It will turn west and proceed through Capitol Hill to South Walker. Judges for the parade will be chosen from the Capitol Hill Alumni Associaton and trophies will be presented to the outstanding entries at half-time. Alumni homecoming chairman is Mrs. Bob Vickrey. Clarence Breithaupt, Capitol Hill principal, will be parade marshall and Mrs. Bill Woods, Alumni First Lady will be leading the parade. Also included in the procession will be various queens selected by Capitol, Hill student organization. One of the queens will be crowned at half-time as Homecoming Queen. "We're expecting between three and five hundred graduates for the game Friday night," Breithaupt explained. "A special section will be roped off for them, and a reception will be held following the game at Griders Restaurant." Special emphasis will be given to classes ending in 9, the principal said. mitcnews 49 Paces 73-60 Win Capitol Hill's Anthony Gaeddert (35) tries to block shot of Shawnee's Bill Thomas.

O THE OKLAHOMA JOURNAL, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1968 By DOYLE MAY Classen has joined the field for the Capitol Hill invitational basketball tournament that opens a five-day run Monday night. Capitol Hill coach Claudell Overton announced Thursday that Classen, a Capital Conference power, has become the eighth team in the tournament, which has grown into one of the state's top early-season events. Overton earlier had run into difficulty filling the eight-team bracket because of the 16-game, two-tournament limit placed on state high schools by the administrators. So he had entered the Redskin B team' as the eighth team. " Classen will take the place of the Capitol Hill junior varsity in the bracket. The Comets will play the tournament's opening game at 7 p.m. Monday against Putnam City, which is figured to challenge Douglass and Northwest for Mid-State Conference honors this season.

By AL ESCHBACH John Carter, a "Jack of all trades," Edmond's bulldozing fullback Jay Conley and Northwest coach Dean Choate lead a star-studded edition of the Oklahoma Journal's 1968 All-Metro football team. Northwest, which marched' to a perfect 10-0 regular season record, heads the team with four members. Norman, Putnam City, John Marshall and Classen all placed two members on the squad. Carter, the lineman of the year, was by far the most versatile member of the team. The powerful 240-pounder started at eight different positions during the season. He was also the No. 2 quarterback on the team behind Paul Rosenberg. Carter could have made the team at numerous positions, but was placed at defensive tackle for his size, Position, Player End—Mark Grimes End—Bob Womble 175 Tackle—Anthony Gaeddert 215 Tackle—Mike Jennings 190 r‘—oer—Dwight Young 220 TnIley 195 200 Rosenberg 170 aN111¦1•11•11wards 180 Toole 170 205 .c .0 "9, speed and hard-hitting tactics. As a halfback and split end this year, Carter scored 54 points. "Carter could play all 22 positions on the field. If he played center he would be the best in the state," said Choate. "He is the most versatile player that I have ever coached." Conley, the Journal's back of the year, was the heart of an Edmond offense which led the Bulldogs to a surprising 9-1-1 mark. The 5-10, 200-pounder averaged 124 yards rushing per game and scored 11 touchdowns. "I think Conley is an exceptionally strong runner with deceptive speed. Very rarely did one person bring him down. He usually had to be gang-tackled," praised Bulldog coach Fred Trenary. "We didn't use him for pass receiving, but he has exceptionally good hands. He John Duren is a hard worker and an excellent faker making people think he has the ball. He is just an exceptionally good boy—he's been that way for three years.- Choate. named coach of the year, tutored the Knights to the Mid-State title, after a third-place finish last year. Northwest was ranked No. 1 at the beginning of the season and kept the ranking throughout. The most notable victory was a hard-fought win 10-7 over defending Mid-State champ, Midwest City, in the fifth game of the season. Joining Conley in the backfield are Rosenberg at quarterback, Jimmy Edwards of Classen at halfback and Danny O'Toole of Casady at the other halfback. Rosenberg kept the Knights rolling midway through the season when the running attack sputtered. The 5-11, 170-pound senior was equally adept at throwing long or short. He also was a good scrambler when he needed the extra yardage. Edwards, only a junior, will be heard from next season. The 175-pound speedster led the Comets to a District 2-AA South title and a 9-2 record. Possessing great moves to go along with the blazing s p e e d, Edwards scored 108 points in the 11 games. O'Toole stepped right into the shoes of graduated John Shelley at Casady. The 5-11. 175-pound senior was a stellar performer at both tailback and quarterback. O'Toole did the punting and extra point kicking for the Cyclones, and was also a fine pass receiver. At the offensive ends are Mark Grimes of Northwest and Bob Womble of John Marshall. Grimes, a rugged 215 pounder, was Rosenberg' favorite pass target. Onc Grimes got his hands on th ball, he was hard to brin down. Womble, 6-1, 175, has real good speed with good hands. "He is the best split end in the state. He has the best At tackles are Anthony hands of any end around." said John Marshall coach Ray McDonald. Gaeddert of Capitol Hill and Mike Jennings of El Reno. Gaeddert was the lone bright spot for the winless Redskins this year with his bruising blocking. The 215-pounder has been a three-year starter. Earl Talley of Northeast and Ken Praytor of U.S. Grant are the guards. Pray-tor was a versatile performer for the Generals, also playing at nose guard and fullbkk. Quick-moving Dwight Young nailed down the center position. Young, who was also an outstanding defensive tackle, was the key of a powerful Norman offensive wall. The defensive unit features three • outstanding linebackers—Marc Funk of Northwest, Gerald Klopp of Midwest City and Conrad Draper of Norman. Barely missing the first team was Johnny Pinion of Putnam City. Funk, one of the ringleaders of Northwest's vicious defense, seemed to be all over the field. He has good lateral movement and speed. He excelled on the pass rush and also was a top-notch defender against the pass. Klopp, although only 160 pounds, has been a stalwart in coach Jim Darnell's defense for three seasons. "Klopp is one of the finest linebackers that I have coached. He was real aggressive and liked to hit." Draper also is in the same category as Funk and Clopp. He is a hard-hitter with good speed on pass coverage. At defensive ends are Steve Pherigo of Putnam City and Jerry Beaty of Yukon. At halfbacks 0VP wahe4st. At safety is John Duren of John MaRoundingi rat s Ur Marshall. hiall.bie out the defensive Gordon of Clas- sen at tackle and Ray Hamil- ton of Douglass at middle guard. u All-Metro Team OFFENSE Wt.

Action seldom flagged as both teams swirled up and down the field almost from the opening kickoff. Shawnee never led, but stayed close enough all night long to keep the issue in doubt. Capitol Hill got three touchdowns from endturned-quarterback Bruce Burnett, two from fullback Russell Davis and some fine place-kicking from a fellow with the unlikely name of Ramson Payahsape. Russell Compton of Shawnee kept the Wolves in the game with a 69-yard kickoff return, most of whose yards were covered after the first half clock had run out, and 68-yard dash from scrimmage in the final quarter. Davis led a Capitol Hill ground attack that netted 300 yards, gaining 100 on 25 carries. Larry Beam added 94 in 15 trips and Burnett had 82 in 18. Still, game honors in the ball-carrying department went to Compton, whose 12 tries netted him 107 yards plus the kickoff return. Capitol Hill now stands 3-4 over-all and 3-3 in the Mid-State Conference. Shawnee is 3-4 and 2-3. Davis got the fireworks started 10 minutes into the game when he capped an 80-yard, eight-play Capitol Hill drive by scoring from five yards out. Payahsape kicked the extra point. Shawnee quarterback R i c h a r d Jacobs fired a two-yard flat pass to Rick Vandaveer 6:43 from halftime, but when a running conversion attempt failed, the Wolves were as close as they would ever get, 7-6. Burnett raced 17 yards to score exactly four minutes later and when Payahsape kicked a 23-yard field goal one second from intermission, it looked as if the Redskins would take a 17-6 lead into the dressing room. But Compton had other ideas and launched his cross-country kickoff return as the gun went off ending the first half, making it 1713. Davis' six-yard touchdown early in the third quarter made it 23-13, but Shawnee's Jacobs slipped around left end with 4:56 left in that period, passed to Vandaveer for the two extra points and the Wolves were down only 23-21. After Steve Parks' 38-yard kickoff return, Capitol Hill proceeded to march 52 yards in 12 ground plays, Burnett going the last three on the first play of the fourth quarter. Then Compton, on the second play after the kickoff, went 68 to score and only an unsuccessful passing conversion attempt kept Shawnee from drawing even. Six minutes after that, Shawnee found itself faced with a fourth-and-two situation at the Capitol Hill 18. Jacobs attempted a 36-yard field goal that would have put his team one point ahead, and it looked good. Bu the ball fell only about a yard short and Capitol Hill took over at its 20. Shawnee got the ball one more time, after a punt three minutes from the finish, but on its first play from scrimmage fumbled and An thony Gaeddart recovered on Shawnee's 36. The WOlves never saw the football again, Burnett going eight yards to score on the game's final play, passing to Jim Neugent for the conversion and letting everyone go home at last. CAP.

(Photo by Dave Heaton) By Ray Soldan Assistant Sports Editor The Mid-State Conference basketball race came within 65 seconds of making a dramatic switch Tuesday night. However, both pacesetter Northwest and challenger Douglass came .hrough under extreme Dressure and it didn't change at all. Northwest, trailing much of the way, squeezed Midwest City when Ron R.aunborg swept under the )asket to snap a 42-42 champion ship. As it is, Northwest is 13-1 and Douglass is 13-2. Northwest entertains Enid (5-8) Friday and travels to Southeast (6-8) next Tuesday. Douglass has only a Friday home assignment with Capitol Hill (9-5) left. Elsewhere T u e s d a y, Capitol Hill moved into a third-place knot with Midwest City by shading U. S. Grant, 58-56, also in the last m i n u t e; Southeast whipped Shawnee, 62-56, and Enid bounced John Marshall, 76-59. Midwest City once held a seven-point bulge over Northwest at 22-15, but the outside shooting of John Cheatham and Scott got the Knights back into the game. "We knew we had to have outside shooting to beat Midwest City," said Northwest coach Don Van-pool. "That's why I started Tony Robinson. He picked us up a couple of baskets from the outside." As Vanpool expected, By Lynn Garnand By a matter of seconds, Northwest and Douglass still stand 1-2 in the Mid-State Conference pennant race as both had to come up with last ditch efforts to claim 1 e a g u e victories Tuesday night. Around the state, district playoffs continued as the two No. 1 ranked girls teams in Classes B and C (Depew and Ames, respectively) s h o w e d the way with victories. For the most part, favorites marched unimpeded toward the elusive district championships. At Midwest City, Ron Raunborg goaled with 49 seconds left to break a 42-all deadlock and Bruce Scott later added a free throw to provide Northwest's 45-42 victory over the Bombers. Sophomore Stanley Bur-dine planted the most important goal of his career with 16 seconds showing on the clock to lift Douglass past Putnam City, 69-67. The No. 1 ranked Knights now own a 13-1 Wed., Feb. 19, 1969 21 loop record while Douglass is right behind at 13-2. Northwest must post victories over Enid and Southeast to., snare the loop title unless Douglass fails in its last league assignment against Capitol Hill. The Trojans' Marvin Rich joined the 1,000 point Scores on Page 24 club Tuesday as he poured through 31 points in the close thriller. The 6-4 senior now has 1,007 career points. Steve Mitchell of Northwest failed to join Rich in that elite group when he was held to eight points by the Midwest City defense. The 6-10 senior needs five points to break the 1,000 mark. Capitol Hill moved into a tie for third place in the Mid-State by toppling U. S. Grant, 58-56. The Redskins, and Midwest City both stand 9-5. Northeast walked away with the Capital Conference title by edging Classen, 62-54, behind Jamison Nichols' 28 points. The Vikings own a glossy 5-0 loop record with one game remaining while every other team in the conference has at least two losses. Guthrie, ranked No. 1 in Class AA, showed why as it clubbed arch-rival Drumright, 60-35. Senior standout Theodore Buford paced the lop sided victory with 18 points while teammates James Williams and Kevin Galbreath added 14 and 13, respectively.

It's the old fun game brought back • with certain revisions. a la 1969 fashion. It includes such exciting features as coaches traveling around the country trying to help high school seniors choose their school. The rules are simple. but don't get caught cheating because the penalty may be severe. The name of the game. of course. is called recruiting. To win you must be a slicker seller than your opponents. You must also have a better product to offer. The value of winning this game is often rewarding. Winning football games usually comes from winning this complicated game. BIG EIGHT Conference letters of intent can be signed Tuesday by prospectus high school football players who wj,sh to go to a Big Eight school. The question that everyone is now asking, is not "Who's Going to College?" but 'Who's Going to WHAT College?" Trying to find an answer to that $64,000 question this year has been like trying to answer when the war in Vietnam will end. Very few players in the state have said they will sign with a definite school. In fact, there are only two: Mark Funk of Northwest who has signed with Tulsa and Neil Acker of Okmulgee who will sign with the University of Oklahoma. THERE HAVE been rather odd happenings in this year's warfare. The first is that Oklahoma State, following a poor season and a late start in recruiting due to the hiring of new coach Floyd Gass, seems to have an edge in recruiting the top players in this state. Meanwhile, Chuck Fairbanks' coaching staff has in- Gaeddert Williams dicated it is only interested in about seven players in this state while concentrating chiefly on Texas. Arkansas, Colorado and California. Conjecture is that for the first time since anyone can remember. the Sooners have recruited a large number of junior college transfers. The effect this has will be the Sooners are more limited to the number of scholarships it can offer to high school athletes. A total of 45 scholarships are allowed by Big Eight regulations. THE BACK of the year. James Williams of Clinton and the lineman of the year. John Carter of Northwest. both seem to be leaning toward Oklahoma State. Williams was hedging toward Oklahoma. but when Clinton coach Jim Frazier was hired as a Cowboys assistant, Williams' mind changed some. He is still seriously considering OU. Carter has narrowed his choices to OSU and Tulsa. "I feel that I can be happier at one of those places." said Carter earlier this week. This weekend Carter visited Oklahoma State. Mike Struck, an all-state end from Clinton, is also considering OSU and OU. End Mark Grimes, a teammate of Carter, has not narrowed his list down. CAPITOL HILL'S outstanding tackle, Anthony Gaeddert, seems to be leaning toward OSU. Hugo's Ray-ford Clark, who gained over 1,700 yards this season, says he will sign with either Oklahoma. Oklahoma State. Kansas. Colorado or SMU on Tuesday. Tommy Woods, another slick running back from Tulsa Hale. is considering LSU, SMU. Kansas and Oklahoma State. Halfback Torn Zachery. who led Tulsa Washington to its second straight state title. has said he will either attend Kansas. Kansas State or Oklahoma. Tom Speed. an all-state tackle from Lawton. is still very much undecided. "He would like to attend OU, but hasn't received a definite offer from them yet." said Lawton coach Bo Bowman. OTHERS FROM Lawton that have listed top choices are tackle Ken Dwyer Kansas State ) and linebacker Joe Dean Shegog Southwestern ). Last year Oklahoma pulled the biggest steal when it signed Texas' top blue chip player. Jack Mildren. The Sooners might be able to accomplish the same feat this year. Joe Wylie. of Henderson. Tex.. considered to be the top blue chipper in the Lone Star state this year, has put Oklahoma at the top of his list. Wylie, an All-American selection. rushed for 2,021 yards and scored 34 touchdowns this season. He is considered the top back to come out of East Texas in 20 years. "I talked with Wylie this week and he said that Oklahoma was one of his top choices that he is considering very definitely... said Ronnie Morrison. sports editor of the Henderson Daily News. "However. he will not sign with anyone until after the track season is over in the spring.- Eddie Foster, an All-American linebacker from Monahans, will sign with the Sooners Tuesday. ;W., • ---:-.*.•••••••:::;;::::::,;;:if,.; C.

There has been little noticeable change in his appearance. Oh, his hair has turned grayer, but that's about it. One cheek or the other still stays puffed out of proportion by the chaw of tobacco wedged within. And he is so wiry and strong and rugged he could yet stretch out between two fence posts and do a good imitation of barbed wire. The other day he said he is, not going to continue coaching football. It's enough to shake a man's confidence, because we sort of expect institutions to 'stay forever. His quitting football would be no different than for Mrs. Betty Grable to inform photographers she no longer wishes her legs to show in their pictures. For years now Mr. Speegle has been able to chew harder, spit farther, swaller less and coach about as successfully as any man in these parts. And no matter how good a product he turned out, Speegle never put on airs. He always has given the impression of an ol' country boy who's just come to town for a look. He compiled an excellent record. His teams won a couple of state championshps and produced 22 All-Staters, a figure which equals a whole squad. This past season, though, his Redskins did not win a game and his pride likely felt an awful sting. Speegle did not suddenly forget how to coach; but populations shift and times change. As new people are built, so are new high schools. "Remember how many brothers we had play out here?" Speegle was saying to make his point. "Well, now nobody's got a little brother anymore. They do, really, but folks keep moving to the edges of town where houses are. newer and where garages are wide enough to stable all the cars. So C. B., whose initials don't stand for anything, is stepping out of the football picture but will continue to coach golf and teach the algebra team. "I may go back to fishing a little more, too." Speegle didn't play much football when he was high schooling at Capitol Hill. "I got my shins skint the first day out and came back to the gym. Another year went by before I went out again." He played a bunch of basketball, though, and wound up at Central State where he played everything but violin. He lettered in basketball, football and track, captaining the 1939 football squad and earning all-conference selection as an end. C. B. had perfected the art of chewing tobacco even before • all that. "Chewing tobacco was sort of a Capitol Hill trademark among the athletes," he says. "Slats Wyrich, who came off that 1933 team and then went to UCLA, started it." Speegle's first coaching job was in the fall of 1940 at Konawa. He coached football. At the semester break he changed jobs, moving to Cushing where Clarence Iba had resigned as basketball coach. "He knew he was out of material there so he got himself another job." Speegle - says Clarence Iba had it pegged right. "One of my regulars was 5-2. The tallest boy I had stood six-foot. But he had a bad back." Cushing finished 5-16 and Speegle showed up at Capitol Hill as an assistant coach. Speegle isn't the sort who would take much credit for the successes of his teams. "Coaches don't play," he'd say. "You gotta have the kids." And he says the school was fortunate to have so many • top-flight assistants. For years he lost his best help to better jobs, which suited him fine. "If you get a guy as an assistant who is not good enough to be a head coach he's worthless to you." C. B. could have moved on several times. But he doubts he would have done anything differently if starting anew. Brother Cliff coached lots of places, including Oklahoma State, and now is supervisor o officials for the Southwest Conference and offices in Dal- Go REDSKINS I BEAT THE SOUTHSIDE SILKIES SPONSORED BY * LOYAL REDSKINS If statistics were kept on such things, bet he has chewed up about half of Kentucky. "The only thing is," says C. B., "I've never chewed in the house. I'll bet I've never smoked two cigarets in my life. Now Cliff didn't ever do either one. He never even drank a cup of coffee. I guess I've never had more than two cups of coffee myself. It smells good but I don't like the taste. The strongest thing Cliff ever drank was tea. He went to Europe one time and the water was bad and he had to."
"Cliff has moved 17 times," says C. B. "I've moved twice. It may make your mind richer to move around, but I figure I've been as well off." I asked Speegle if he has no faults at all? "One," he said. "I gripe a lot." High school football will miss him, And Capitol Hill should name something after him, like a street. Or at least a tobacco pouch, ri Lt% rIVIVVN • • I.- • ¦ • • • I I_ HILL 1(11 GIFTS SHADE CAP TC
Pirates Win Easily, Nab First Place By DOYLE MAY Putnam City moved into undisputed possession of first place in the Mid-State Conference Tuesday night with its third straight victory. but Midwest City. Northwest and three-time defending champion Douglass stayed right on the heels of the Pirates. Midwest City came from three points behind with 17 seconds to play to trim U.S. Grant. 51-50. Northwest overcame foul difficulty at Capitol Hill to take the Redskins, 52-46. and Douglass sputtered past Shawnee, 51-46. The Pirates spurted in the final period to sink John Marshall, 52-39.

Down by 11 after clutch- . . points and trailed only 37- 32 going into the final period. But the lumbering Mitchell returned and hit two quick field goals to open a seven-point gap, and Raunborg added a crip shot to make it nine. The Knights played it cozy the rest of the way. Northwest actually got better results with Mitchell sitting out the last 4:42 of the first half. When he departed, Northwest led 21-17. John Cheatham hit a jumper from the corner and Raunborg tapped in a follow shot for a 27-18 half-time lead. It was 15-15 after a torrid first period. Raunborg. a 6-5 smoothie. led all scorers with 26 points while Mitchell got 12. The Redskins' Jim Lackey scored 20 and Alan Dukes got 14. Unbeaten Midwest City. which now has won four of its five games by a total margin of seven points. staged quite a comeback against Grant. Mike Messerli hit two free throws with 17 seconds to go to close Grant's lead to one. The Generals yielded the ball on a traveling violation. and Midwest City won it when Messerli, working from the post in the absence of 6-8 Larry Tribble, who had fouled out. hit Jim Herndon with a perfect pass. and the latter put it in with two seconds to play. Messerli scored 13 points. the same amount he yielded to Grant gunner Clay Hoster in a head-up duel. Bobby Jones choked off Grant's other big gun. Dennis Wood. with nine points. Tribble, the city's leading scorer, was limited to 12 points. Grant led at halftime, 3027.

Speegle Quits, Rumbaugh Gets Hill Jo By DOYLE MAY C.B. Speegle, molder of some of Oklahoma's greatest high school football teams at Capitol Hill, has resigned, and one of his former star players, Lloyd Rumbaugh, will replace him as head coach. Speegle, 52, said Monday that he will step aside as football coach but will continue as golf mentor and teach math at Capitol Hill. Rumbaugh, 33. was immediately named to succeed the eldest of the Speegle brothers who achieved fame in Oklahoma athletics. C.B.'s younger brother, Cliff. was,a star football player at Oklahoma and later coached at Oklahoma State. Another brother, Wayne, was state high school golf champion. an All-State eager at Capitol Hill and later played basketball at OU. Speegle's 1968 Redskins failed to win a game in 10 starts. and C.B. cited the steady decline of material as one of the reasons for his decisions. "I have no regrets, though. I have enjoyed coaching football at Capitol Hill. I have been there more than half my life." Speegle turned out two state championship teams times during his 18-year stretch as head coach. He produced 22 all-state football players. Although noted for his football accomplishments, Speegle was a successful basketball coach during a five-year stint. His 1947-48 team, featuring All-State Keith Smith and Jerry Snyder, who later played major league t,; baseball, was state runnerup. Speegle coached two teams to Mid-State cage crowns. His golf teams have been equally successful. Orville Moody, who made a big stir on the pro tour last summer as a 33-year-old "rookie," won two state golf titles as did Elmer Humphreys. Among other pros he coached are Ab Justice, Joe Walser and Aldy Gers. Speegle's defensive coach for the last 10 years, Willie Edwards. also announced Monday that he is quitting the coaching field to enter administration. Edwards was a star halfback for the Redskins during 1945-47 and later played for Central State. "Hearing that C.B. has quit is saddening,- Edwards said. "He has been one of the great ones. He has given more to athletics at Capitol Hill than any other coach started losing the past few years only because of the drain of our students to the other high schools that were built in our district. C.B.'s resignation is the end of an era." Rumbaugh was a tremendous halfback on the 1953 Capitol Hill team that featured tackle Benton Ladd and quarterback Chuck Page. It generally is considered one of the finest prep teams ever developed in Oklahoma. Rumbaugh later played at Cameron Junior College. Oklahoma State and Central State. He served as an assistant coach at Capitol Hill during 1963-65, moved over to Southeast as an assistant for the next three years, and returned to Capitol Hill as backfield coach in 1968. Speegle's 18-year-old record at Capitol Hill was 104-71-12 with 33 of those losses being inflicted in the last five years after Grant and Southeast had cut into the Redskins' once-fertile hunting grounds. Speegle was voted into the Oklahoma Coaches As- Trojans Nudge Grant o rn By Lynn Garnand Capitol Hill knocked Midwest City from the ranks of the unbeaten in two overtimes, 67-63, and it took Douglass' one extra period to stave off U. S. Grant, 63-60, in the only two Mid-State Conference games Tuesday night. The Redskins, who lost to Putnam City in two overtimes last Fr i d a y, 56-54, blew a nine-point lead only to overtake Midwest City at the end and force the Bomber s to scramble for the last shot in regulation play, which Johnny Johnson drilled home from the corner to knot proceedings at 56-all. A three-point play by Jim Lackey shoved Capitol Hill in front, 63-61, with 10 seconds left in the first overtime period but Mike Messerli dropped a jumper from the key to force another extra session. Seventeen seconds into the second overtime, Gerald Heath grabbed a rebound of a missed Midwest City free throw and the Redskins went into a delay that lasted until Ken Sullivan worked his way free under the basket for a crib shot with 1:18 to go. Midwest City threw the ball away coming down-court and with 42 seconds showing Jim Lackey connected on both ends of a one-and-one and the Hill owned a 67-63 advantage that held until the final buzzer. The victory upped the Redskins' mark to 6-3 over-all and 4-2 in confer- The Results CAPITOL HILL 67, MIDWEST CITY 63 Capitol Hill. ... 15 17 7 17 7 4-67 Midwest City 10 17 18 11 7 0-63 Capitol Hill-Lackey 22, Dukes 18, Sullivan 17, Dryden 4, Gaeddart 2, Heath 2, Butler 2.

The loss was the first in eight games for the fourth-ranked Bombers, who are now tied for second with Putnam City and Douglass at 4-1. Northwest, which was idle Tuesday, paces the league with a 4-0 record. At U. S. Grant, Douglass hit four straight free throws while the hosts were missing two as the Trojans prevailed in the overtime period. The Trojans led, 33-27, at halftime but saw that lead melt to three at the end of the third period. Grant tied the match at the final gun. The two clubs traded baskets and then Douglass claimed the victory with its charity tosses. Marvin Rich pumped in 24 for Douglass but high point honors went to the Generals' Clay Ho s t e r, who canned 25. In the only game involving a Capital Conference team, Ada jumped into a big lead over Classen and then spent the rest of the game holding off the Corn- ets for a 64-61 triumph. Foul trouble plagued the Comets all night, especial- ly in the fourth quarter when the Cougars hit 12 of 14 to protect their slim lead. Fred Carolina, a sophomore, poured through 27 points for Classen in a losing effort while Jimmy Edwards added 13 and Bruce Cheatham 10. Jud Collins topped Ada with 20 while Tony Tweedy hit 16, Dwayne Smith 12 and Larry Bush 11. The loss dipped Classen under the .500 mark at 4-5.
