Report Secret Draft Bv AFL DALLAS, Tex. (AP) - Indications were mighty strong today that the American Football League has pulled a similar stunt to 1960—jumped the gun on the draft. Only this time it violates an agreement with the American Football Coaches Association. There could be a lot of trouble, especially from the NCAA, but apparently nothing can be done about it except talk. Everybody apparently knew about it except Commissioner Joe Foss and his AFL office here— and Foss now has been apprised and has said he'll check into it. Three newspapers reported that a secret drat had been held and such stars as Ernie Davis of Syracuse, Bob Ferguson of Ohio State, Latice Alworth of Arkansas, Roman Gabriel of North Carolina State and Jim Saxton of Texas were among the selectees. Some anonymous club officials were quoted that the draft had been held and one of them, a fellow with San Diego, told Jerry Magee of the San Diego Union "The commissioner knew nothing about this. It was run by the owners." The club owners are supposed to have held six rounds of the draft by telephone several weeks before Commissioner Foss set the official date if the draft for Dec 2—the day of final college games Foss, in announcing the draft said he was complying with an NCAA request not to hold the player selection until the close o the college season. The Dallas News first broke th< secret draft. Then the Unioi chimed in and next came th Houston Post to confirm it. Last year the AFL held part o its draft a month earlier than th National Football League. The Dallas News said it go first wind of the secret draft from Southwest Conference coach, 'ho said he figured there had >een one because the pros kept ailing. Last year the AFL held art of ad been done but he did admit hai the AFL owners had been ontacting college players they would like to draft, "just like, the National Football League has jeen doing. But that doesn't mean we've held a draft or tried to sign Joplin Man Bowls 1,401 CHICAGO (AP) ^The field of 128 men and 64 women today wind up the qualifying rounds for jlaces in the semifinals of the ifth anual World's Invitational Jowling Tournament. With the men scheduled to bowl six more games and the women 'our more, Pat Patterson of St. Louis is leading the men's division with a record of 3,960 for 18 games. Highlight of the men's division Sunday was a tremendous 1,401 series by Carl Richard of Joplin, Mo,, which included a final game of 90. Richard started off with a spare and then added 11 strikes. His 1,401 is high for the tournament. Sanders Wins 6 Cajun' With 270 LAFAYETTE, La. (AP)-"That guy Arnold will have something to say about it," quipped Doug Sanders when asked if 'he believed he could overtake Arnold Palmer in the final three tourneys of the year and move into second place in earnings on f .the 1961 PGA circuit. "Arnold is one hell of an athlete," Sanders said Sunday after winning $2,000 in first place money in the $15,000 Cajun Classic Golf Tourney. "You know," he said "Palmer can play bad and still score. And when he plays good, he scores even better." Sanders used his now-famous short swing and unorthodox stance plus his methodical putting to post a record 14-under par 270 for the 72-hole tourney. He was tied for the lead the first day and took sole possession following the second round. The $2,000 check boosted his tournament earnings for 1961 to $53,665.23, about $1,900 short of Palmer's total. Palmer, golf's man of the year in 1960 with record earnings over $60,000, plans to return to the circuit at Mobile this week for the $20,000 Sertoma Open. Both he and Sanders could conceivably overtake idle Gary Player in the money race before the year ends.
