Braves Face A Stiff Test By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS College of Emporia forms the next barrier for Ottawa's unyielding Braves in the Kansas Confer-, ence football race. Sporting a fancy IS-game winning streak and still unscored upon in three league games, Ottawa faces its sliffest test of the young season Saturday when it meets the Presbies in Emporia. The C. of E. Presbies have a 3-0 record and also have survived their first big game of the season. They whipped favored Baker 27-0 last Friday, while Ottawa was beating winless Sterling 37-0. The~Presbies*~ triumph left the Kansas Conference with a three- way tie for first. Also sharing the lead is Southwestern, which defeated McPherson last Saturday 30-7, on the strength of Bill Hower's three touchdowns. Jerry Smith threw three touchdown passes as Kansas Wesleyan notched its first triumph, 27-14 over Bethany, and Bethel also won its first, outlasting Friends in a 47-21 duel. Baker, its title hopes now seriously damaged, starts the Kansas Conference action Friday at home against Kansas Wesleyan. Saturday games send Southwestern to Bethany, Bethel to Sterling, and McPherson to Friends. Kansas Conference W L PC. Pts. Opp. Ottawa Coll. of Emp.

Fleck Wins Bakersfield Playoff BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) Someday Jack Fleck may win a golf tournament within the regulation distance. But so far he's needed a playoff to gain every victory of his career. Fleck ran his playoff record to 3-2 Sunday, out-stroking Bob Rosburg on the first sudden-death hole to capture the $25,000 Bakersfield Open. Fleck, best-known for his shocking extra-round upset of Ben Hogan at the 1955 National Open, birdied the 73rd hole after he and Rosburg tied at 276. The victory was good for $3,500 and one year's royalties from a Bakersfield oil well. Final scores of money- winners at the tournament: Jack Fleck, $3,500 71-71-69-65—276 Bob Rosburg, $2,300 69-66-71-70—276 Jim Ferree, $1,800 71-70-69-67—277 Gay Brewer, $1,500 70-72-71-65-278 Eric Monti, $1,200 71-73-67-68-279 0«orgt Bayer, $1,200 70-66-74-69—279 Jon Gustin, $1,200 64-71-67-74—279 Bob Harrison, $1,000 71-73-67-69—280 Marty Furgol, $925 Jerry Barber, $925 69-72-70-70-281 20-70-71-70-281 Dallas strengthened its second place position in the Western Division when it beat Houston 26-21 and showed how valuable Abner Haynes can be. Haynes had been on the ailing list while Dallas slumped, taking a licking from San Diego and be-1 ing pressed to the limit by downtrodden Oakland. But he returned to full-time duty Sunday and led Dallas to victory. Dallas, with Jack Spikes running for 144 yards and Haynes for 117, set a league one-game rushing record of 398 yards. Oakland won its first league game Sunday when it whipped Denver 33-19 Oakland had lost two and had 99 points scored against it before snapping out of the doldrums. George Fleming kicked a 54-yard field goal for Oakland, a new league record. Oakland and New York are idle next weekend. San Diego will be at Boston Saturday night. In Sunday games, Dallas goes to Denver and Buffalo to Houston. Athletics Turn Down Piersall LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Cleveland Indians have offered to trade their eccentric center fielder, Jimmy Piersall, to Kansas City and have been turned down. Sources close to the Cleveland team—and Piersall himself—have indicated to thp Associated Press that similar trade overtures may be made to other clubs. The AP was told by reliable sources that Cleveland recently offered to trade Piersall to Kansas City for first baseman Norm Siebern, and that the proposition was rejected by Athletic's Manager Hank Bauer. There were indications Cleveland also approached the Los Angeles Angels about a Piersall trade. But apparently nothing came of it. Piersall batted .322 this year but it was the first time he had hit better than .300 in the majors. Some baseball men have suggested his unquestioned brilliance in the outfield is offset by his erratic and volatile disposition.
