.".... . .,- . . . .... . ... T. at GORDON SARGEANTj I ' - i I I ... I .- : THAT man Kramer is again agitating the 1 minds of the people who run Australian tennis. If the States vote three-all on the motion to -ban Kramer's professional troupe from official courts on their tour in February and March, Norman Strange will make his most import-' ant decision , since being elected president of the L.T.A.A. - . His casting-vote would decide the issue at tomorrow night's meeting in Melbourne. Earlier belief that he would favour Kramer's being allowed to use the courts is now being discounted in Melbourne. ' . The N.S.W. association's debate was held "in camera," typical of the attitude of big sporting bodies in this State on matters of great interest to supporters. ,. , Opposition to the Kramer tour seems to be crystallised in the words: "Why help him? And . these days he needs help." Those prepared to . let Kramer use association courts say: "All of the major tournaments will be over before the Kramer dates. Associations , could do with the money for use of their courts." , ' , LEADING the assault on - Kramer is Q.L.T.A. president "Big . Bill" Edwards. He said after the move for "open" tournaments had, failed at the annual meet ing of the International Lawn Tennis Federation in Paris in July:.. "That was Kramer's last throw." All the leading tennis nations, including Australia, had favoured open tournaments, but the sponsors failed by five votes to gain, the necessary two-thirds affirmative vote. , Kramer had said he would support open tournaments only on his own terms: -there would have to be at least 15,000 dollars in prize money for a tournament. This attitude was said-to have i scared smaller tennis nations into closing their ranks against Kramer. But this was not Kramer's "last'throw." - He began raiding . what material was left among the amateurs. He signed on Gimeno, of Spuin, and second-rater Hai-llet, of France. Pietrangeli (Italy) - and Damon (France) turned, him down. WORLD'S No. 1 amateur Neale Frasei was saved for Australia, with the generous help of employers. Kramer has said he is interested in present national title-holder Rod Laver.. Meanwhile, Kramer needs the co-operation of amateur bodies if he is to ' run successful pro tournaments. ',;" Jake himself insists that the amateur bodies nedd him. :,'.,: .;. : . .:'. THAT new ; type ,. ot third grade competition proposed by ! the N.S.W. Rugby : League's special committer sounds interesting. . It would be restricted to special teams nominated by district clubs (not the normal third grade teams) and teams from universities, technical colleges, teachers' colleges ietc; : v j v- There is a; very; important field there. .,.." ... , .-. .; ;. There would be ' an , age limit of 24 years Presumably some' of the matches would be .played on Saturday morflincs- . w NORTH. SYDNEY cricket club did a splendid Job on the prob- lem of "no - balled" bowler Bevan White. There was no panic, no railing against the umpires. There was no attempt to "hush, hush", the special trial at the-nets. ; Now;;ifs:'up to' Bevan to keep on tb straight and arrow path. . By STAN H : Jwo Wyong brothers yesterday took their seventh major . schoolboy title when each scored a double in the All Schools' Championships at the Sydney Athletic Field; They were i 8-year-old Paul Manuel and 15-year-old John, both students at Wyong High School. Paul followed his two .. .wins over the open S80 yards and mile at . last Saturday's -' Combined High Schools' championships with a repeat in the events yesterday. . He was untroubled to win both events as he led from start to finish over eafh distance. . .-- His younger brother John yesterday won the under 16 years 880 yards and followed this with a win in the under 17 years mile. He won the C.H.S. 880 yards title but was- beaten on the post by Wollongong's John Boetje last Saturday Yesterday, the 15-year-old John sprinted . for the last 220 yards to overtake Boetje on the last bend. John timed 4m 41s for the mile, a grand performance v for one so young under the difficult conditions. ' ' . This was only 2.4s outside his elder, brother's winning time for the open mile. Gusty, buffeting winds handicapped the runners, especially - sprinters and hurdlers, who faced a strong headwind each time they took the track. " Although the carnival " was the State schoolboy .championships,- there was a sparse attendance and a lack of enthusiasm. Few spectators Facing the opposition of the Associated Schools championships and G.P.S. carnivals on the same day, the :v N.S.W.A.A.A. could consider abandonment of schoolboy championships. There were fewer entries than in previous years, and one event, the open high jump, was abandoned when only one entrant arrived. Highlights yesterday, apart from the Manuels' efforts, was another double in the open events when John . Malone, of St. Patrick's. Strathfield, won the 220 yards sprint and long jump. . - Yesterday he won the long jump with 19ft 'Jin, the 220 yards in 23.8s, and gained second placing in the short sprint. . Ken Stevens, the Fairfield High -student and State sub-junior champion, won. the 100 yards and 220 yards double for the under 17 years age group. ' Stevens was tested in the 100 yards when the place-getters. Max Walkley, Fort Street, and B Hunt, of C.B., By JOHN TRELOAR Only the weather .prevented several records beinq broken at the Associated Schools' Athletics Carnival . at v S.C.G. yesterday. t The . performances .under - adverse conditions were excellent. -."; Credit must ' go to the Waverley ! College , Open relay team, which recorded the fast time of 43 seconds for the 4 x 110 yards. 1 - ; These four boys : had a tremendous amount of responsibility on their ' shoul- Weather -i . . BAXTER Lewisham, timed 11.4s to equal the winner's time. .. Paul Bowman, Marcellin College, Randwick, gained a treble in the under 16 years when he won the 90 yards hurdles in T1.9s,J the 100 yards in 1 1.5s, and the long jump with 18ft 9in. Sprint double G. Tiesto, of. Epping High, won the sprint double for . the ; under- 15 years group. - John Hongell, ' the . Sutherland boy who gained four wins, the high, long Jumps, hurdles and 100 yards sprint, in the' C.H.S. titles, won one of -ts three events yesterday. - Limited to three, he gained a first in the 120 yards hurdles, second in the high jump, and third in the long jump. :. ... - He was beaten in the high jump by Neil Meredith, of St. John's School, Lakemba. Meredith equalled the record for under 17 years with a leap of 5ft 11 in, held by Kev McMahon since 1949. Two records fell, one to Cleveland Street High schoolboy Lee Falson, who put the shot 53ft 5in in the under 15 years event.. This was 2ft 8iin better than the previous best performance. A. Bilinski, of Homebush High, threw the discus 118ft lOiin in the, open event to better Uldis Krum-min's 1958 record by 5ft 6in. The last event of the day, the open 400 yards relay, climaxed the thril-linq Assoc! ated Schools' Athletic Carnival at the S.C.G. yesterday. Before . . this event Knox Grammar School had a half-poinf' lead from Waverley College for the points championship. The Waverley team, aid going ders as the result meant their either winning or losing the competition to Knox College. With . excellent baton changing they- ran away with the race. As a matter of fact, standing at an obscure angle to the final changeover ' I " thought they, had overrun" the mark. . The' .outstanding track event was. the 880 yards open, won by -Burnet, of Knox, in the record time of 1m 58.2s, followed closely stopped records LED' Mii.L': imWm 'i " ' ' ' 5 ' WKWWii'iilliiiwiilKWiiiiiiitilliilWWIMW r't n ''immtmmmtmT ti i ji 1 P. BOWMAN put everything into this effort and it won him- the Under 16 long jump at -Sydney Athletic Field. , . ed by near-perfegt changes, proved far too good ami won easily by five yards in 43 seconds, a record. The Knox 'team' failed to run a place and finished 5 points behind Waverley. David Effeney. ; who ran the last leg of the relay for Waverley,- was the outstanding athlete of the day. He won the open 100 yards in 10.3 seconds from the favourite, - David Smithson, of Knox, and again beat Smithson in the 220 yards in 22.2 seconds. Sprint - doubles were - also won by W. Urquhart (Waverley) under 16, D. Grose by. Marr, of Waverley College. ' :v;.;.' The spruit events appeared slow, but Heaney's time : of 10.3s for the open 100 yards would . have, on a calm day, been ither 9.9 or 9s. . Naturally the . younger boys had greater difficulty in handling the head wind and they were well, outside existing records. In the under 16 high jump , Hansen, of Knox, broke the. existing record with an excellent jump . of 5f: 8iin. - .. He uses the Western Roll and apart from possible tiredness at the finish, gave a clean and positive' exhibition of high . jumping. (Barker) under 15, while p. Howson won a treble in the under 14 division. - He won the 100 yards in 12 seconds, the 220 vards in 25.8 seconds, and - the 60 yards hurdles in 9.1 seconds. - Although the '. strong southerly wind upset most of the competitors, the Knox Grammar ., School .. half-miler, . Russ Burnet, made good, use of -it. Running in second place with a - half-lap to go and with the- wind behind him. Burnet outgeneralled : his opponents and sprinted to a 1.0 ;yards... lead.- ii; . :- He retained this lead t the tape and recorded a new record, lm 58.2s. - This beat C. Johnston's 1951 record by 1.3s. The only- other record broken was when J.
