"Dutch" Harrison, the onetime Arkansas traveler, gave the youngsters a golf lesson yesterday by shooting his second straight sub-par round to take a two-stroke lead at the halfway mark in the $40,000 Los Angeles Open. While Friday's leaders stag gcred and stuttered around the long Rancho course, the old Dutchman, 47 years young and "feeling better than ever," came in with a 70 to go with his opening-round 68 for a 138 total after 3G holes. Five men were tied for second at 140 Tommy Jacobs and Smiley Quick, both of Los Angeles! Charley Sifford and Stan hudas, both of Philadelphia, and Ciay Brewer, Jr., of Cincinnati and Lexington, Ky. Some of the first-day leaders faded clear out of the picture. Among them was Mike Krak of Morgantown, W. Va who had a 69 Friday and an 81 yesterday. H e failed to qualify for the final 36 holes, as did such other stars as Ted Kroll, Bill Nary, Vic Ghezzi, and Joe Conrad, the for- Gay Brewer merBritish amateur champ. Playing before a record-smashing second-day gallery of 12,750 under a scorching sun, Harrison, now of St. Louis, mastered the course despite three-putting three greens. Dutch was out in 36, back in 34, prov-ing his iron play was near perfection. It took a score of 149 or better to qualify for the final 36 holes, to be played today and tomorrow. Among those who qualified were defending champion Doug Ford, with a 144, and "world" champion Dick Mayer, who barely made it with a 149. The leaders: 131-E. J.

Hoad, a failure in his first appearances as a pro last year in the United States, outlasted world . pro champion Gonzales of Los Angeles 6-3, 13-11, 6-4 at Sydney, Australia.

Stein and Freeman cut the margin to six with 11:04 left and a follow by Viviano narrowed the gap to four at 23-19 with 7:45 to go. Kitchen and Goldstein pumped it back to eight at 30-22 but Freeman and Stein put the Muskies close again at 30-26.' The last five minutes were a real dog-fight with Xavier holding a slight edge. Although DuPont picked up his fourth personal at 3:16 the Cardinals managed to move out at 37-31 with about two minutes remaining. However, Louisville couldn't hang on to the advantage as a shot by Castcllc off a screen and a crip by Frank Tar-taron reduced the count to 37-35 with 56 seconds showing. Tieman rang up one from the outside but Viviano matched that with a medium. Andrews whipped in a short with 10 seconds to go to give Louisville its 41-37 halftime margin. Both clubs hit well in the opening half, U. L. bagging 42.5 per cent of its 40 shots and Xavier tagging an even 40 per cent of its 35 attempts. Louisville looked a little better on the boards, particularly on its defensive board but lost the ball eight times on errors. Although DuPont was riding the bench with four fouls, Louisville managed to keep a step in front of the Musketters through the early stages of the second half. They finally went ahead of U. L. for the first time at 54-53 as the Birds hit one of their familiar dead spots and went scoreless for almost four minutes. Xavier sat on a two to four-point lead through the final eight minutes of the regulation time and the Cards were still down 68-64 at 1:02.

Cards Post Is Vacated By Richards Chicago, Jan. 4 (Hi Ray Rich ards quit Saturday night as coach of the Chicago Cardinals, less than a month before the expiration of his contract. Both Richards and Managing Director Walter Wolfner expressed regret at his decision to resign, but there have been numerous reports of disagree-: nienls between the men over the i disappointing performances of ; the Cardinals in the 1957 Na- tional Football League campaign. The Cardinals finished last in the Eastern Division with three wins and nine defeats. In 1956, with virtually the same personnel, the club finished in second place with seven wins and five losses. Payments Include Interest ind If Insurance. So Franchises Available In A. A., Says Doherty From Wire Dispatches Ed Doherty, president of the A m e r i c a n Association, said last night at Denver, there are no franchises available in the Class AAA league for new teams. Doherty said he had not received a telegram sent by the Burnett interests of Dallas, asking what procedures should be followed to apply for membership in the American Association. He said he presumed it would be in his office Monday. "In any case," Doherty said, "we already have eight franchises in eight cities. Our constitution states that we must have eight franchises, no more and no less. At this time, we just have no vacancies. Could Fill Franchise "And I think baseball's blue book (of regulations) makes it clear that, at least until the opening day of next season, the Texas League holds the Dallas territory. The Texas League could fill that franchise with a team that plays in an open lot, if it wished," he said. The Burnett interests own the baseball stadium at Dallas. They have withdrawn their team from the Texas League, and have offered to rent the stadium to a new franchise holder at a "reasonable" but not "cheap" figure. No Effect Foreseen At Wichita, Kan., the general manager of the Wichita Braves said the application by Dallas interests would probably have no immediate effect on the attendance-troubled Milwaukee farm club. Lynn Stone said the parent organization surveyed the Dallas situation several months ago and it didn't look like the best Spectacular Clearance In Our Basement Budget Store . . , Downlown Store Only 35.00 All-Wool Flannel Suits Specially Priced For This Sale! 9 Here's a rare bargain in fine all-wnnl x . s solid color or striped flannel, smartly tai- ; lored, in charcoal grey, medium grey, c "- light grey, and charcoal brown.

The tall right-hander received "a substantial" pay increase, but exact figures were not disclosed. Bunning, the surprise of the Tiger staff, was the club's only 20-game winner. In 45 games, 30 of them starting assignments, Bunning. compiled a 20-8 record and a 2.7 earned run average that was one of the best in the American League. The 26-year-old pitcher had 14 complete games and in 267 innings struck out 182 batters and issued only 72 bases on balls.

Now that major league baseball has all but officially approved a compromise plan for New York and West Coast territories, what comes next further franchise shifts, or expansion? Commissioner Ford Frick, who drafted the territorial definition offered to the majors by a special four-man committee Friday, has indicated he looks for expansion, perhaps to 12 teams in the National and American or to a third league. National League president Warren Giles also sees expansion as the more logical next step. Significantly, however, Mayor Wagner's committee, set up to return the National League to New York, already is on record as being "reasonably sure" it can lure an existing N. L. franchise to New York now that the big town is "open." The mayor's committee hasn't indicated which N. L. club or clubs it had in mind, although the Cincinnati Redlcgs and the Pittsburgh Pirates have been mentioned off and on since the Dodgers and the Giants gave up and fled to the West Coast.
