C4 Palm Beach Post, Thursday, Nov. 7, Vm Busy Month On Gold Coast PRO FOOTBALL By Elinor Kaine GOLF SCENE By Chuck Voorhis jU:,...;. '$ November will be a busy month for golf along the Gold Coast. There will be the annual meeting of the PGA which gets underway in Palm Beach next week, the West Palm Beach Open at the West Palm Beach CC Nov. 16-17, the Southern Seniors at the St. Lucie CC Nov. 17-23, the Louise Suggs LPGA tournament at Pine Tree GC Nov. 21-24, the Perry Como Invitational at St. Lucie over the Thanksgiving weekend. The American Seniors start December with a four-day tournament at the PGA, Dec. 9-12. The ninth annual United States Pro-Amateur championship will be played at St. Lucie Dec. 12-14, the state Father-Son at Atlantis Dec. 26-27, and the Championship of Golf Club champions gets off at the Breakers Dec. 30. Rambling A round XT HARRISON mm Dolan of Leicester, Mass. and Bill Collins, a part time tourist from Brea Burn CC, Purchase, N.Y. John Barnum, who winters in West Palm, and Dub Pagan, West Palm Beach CC pro are also playing In It. About People, Places, Events . . . Tuesday will be the opening tournament day for the Ladies Golf Association of the Lost Tree Club. There have been Informal events during the sutnmer but the fall-winter program will make Its bow Tuesday. New officers will officiate at their first meeting following the tournament. Serving this season yill be Mrs. William Robinson, president; Mrs. Cary Middlecoff, vice-president; Mrs. S. Jeffery Peters, secretary; Mrs. J. Howard Thompson, treasurer, and Mrs. J. Carl DeLaCour, Jr., assistant treasurer. The tournament on tap will be a best ball foursome. . . Chuck Albury calls attention to .the new International Seniors Champions tournament in Bellalr starting January 26. It is a 72-hole medal event preceded by a two-man event. But it is an unusual seniors tournament. To be eligible, the player must he 55 years of age, must have won a seniors championship at his club, state, regional, national or international level. , . Another Pro-Am Interest Is scheduled at the Diplomat Hotel and Country Club, Miami, Dec. 4-7. It's the annual St. Jude Open sponsored by entertainer Danny Thomas and the hotel. The note accompanying the announcement says that the tournament is sponsored by the new APG group. . . SIKES BEMAN LAST WEEK JET cornerback Johnny Sample telephoned his good friend and ex-teammate Lenny Lyles. Baltimore's right cornerback. "Don't worry about Homer Jones," said John, who evidently had been scouting Homer via video. "Homer doesn't make any moves on you, he just tries to outrun you." "Lance Alworth is a much better receiver than Jones or Bob Hayes," Sample said Sunday after he'd shut out Buffalo flanker Haven Moses all afternoon. "Hayes doesn't like to get hit. He'll catch passes against a team like New Orleans (Hayes caught two TD passes vs. the Saints) but he never does anything against a tough team like the Packers." Sample has been thinking Super Bowl all season. He played on two Baltimore championship teams in 1958-59 but his career followed a somewhat erratic and controversial course until he landed with the Jets two years ago. "I was blackballed in the National League," said John. "I got a lot of hate for them. I want to get even." Sample has ordered 400 Super Bowl tickets for his Philadelphia agency. Against Buffalo, John scored the Jets' only TD with his sixth interception of the season. It would be ironic if John's positive thinking ends up with him, Weeb, Joe and the Jets in the Super Bowl against Lenny, Shula, Earl-John and the Colts. Sample and his Green Bay counterpart Herb Adderley are thinking about opening a cocktail lounge called "The Left Corner." A NEW FOOTBALL BOOK deserves recognition if only for the author's courage. In "Seven Days to Sunday" Eliot Asinof builds up to a climax game, Pittsburgh (2-6-1) vs. New York (4-5) last season! On the jacket Asinof tells of his closeness with the Giant "family," the Maras, the Al Shermans, and the players after two years of total freedom in the Giants' inner sanctum. As expected the book is propaganda, but interesting, yet the Giant family has exiled Eliot Asinof to its hate list for some "betrayals of confidence." Asinof is mourning his lost friends. Athletic Fraternity Honored At Florida (UPlTelephoto) BIG CHAW Fred Hatfield, Florida State University's baseball mentor takes a last chew of tobacco by third base at the Seminole field. Hatfield played third base for the Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, Chicago White Sox, and Cincinnati Reds. Four of the five years Hatfield coached at FSU, he guided the Seminoles to a spot in the District NCAA playoffs and competition in the College World series. The coach is now returning to pro ball as a coach. Hatfield hopes to remain in Florida with one of the pro teams around West Palm Beach orSarasota. The Southern Seniors had 254 players last year at St. Lucie. It's open to players 55 and over men and women who are members of recognized golf clubs in the United States. The Como outing will be limited to 380 players 260 men and 120 women who will play both the Saints and Sinners courses for their 72-hole competition. The West Palm Open is the second on the little Winter Tour of the Florida Section of the PGA. It will have a strong field. Classy Field For Pro-Am . . . The U.S. Pro-Am has an interesting history and will have a fine field for this year's outing. For the last eight years, it has been played in Cincinnati but has moved to St. Lucie to avoid conflicting tournament dates. It had one such conflict back in 1961. Sammy Snead and Tommy Bolt played in and were suspended by the PGA for not informing the sponsors of the Portland Open, being played on the same date, they would not appear in Portland. Although he withdrew after the first round, Snead was kept oft the Ryder Cup team the following year. It is a scratch tournament which has been won three times by Jack Nicklaus, twice as an amateur ahd once as a pro. Among the latest entries filing for this year's tournament, which carries a prize tag of $30,000 are Deane Beman and Dan Sikes, current tour players, and E.J. "Dutch" Harrison, former tour player and Ryder Cupper, who has won the Western and St. Pete opens and the Bing Crosby Invitational. Clyde Usina, who used to he at the West Palm Beach CC, and who now Is pro at the Fairview CC in Greenwich, Conn., will be teamed with amateur W.B. Merry of West Palm. Other tour players listed are Jerry Abbott of Boca Raton, Jay THE JET DEFENSIVE LINE has a pot o' gold each week for the man who flattens the enemy QB most often. After three blank games Gerry Philhin won $210 against Boston. The five linemen, two coaches and an owner's son contribute $80 weekly. Buffalo's linemen had a similar pot going in 1966 but AFL President Milt Woodard vetoed. So far Miltie is mum. Vinegar Bend Wins Congressional Seat members In one year Is a new national record. Trackmen John Morton and , Ronnie Jourdan hold national J records in the organization, t Morton holds the shot put ! record with a heave of 57-6 and Jourdan has the high jump J mark with a leap of 7 . f Ray Soehner, a physical eduj cation major, set a nationa( record In bowling with a 219 av erage. J "It's a great honor to win the national title," says Carnes. "I Is an outstanding achievement for a boy to pass the test and), when one school qualifies 25 for membership, this has to be aj compliment to their physical ed ucatlon and athletic programs. i. CARDINAL OWNER Stormy Bidwill's 12-year old daughter Christy is enamored of the Cardinals' rookie quarterback Tim Van Galder. Van Galdcr is a curly-haired swinger who doesn't mind the title "Alfie of the NFL." The last Cardinal ballplayer Christy had a thing for was Lamar McHan! At least she's consistent. In case you forget McHan was a quarterback to. He hated to fly. "One time we had our game In San Francisco coming up," said Weeb Ewbank, then coaching McHan at Baltimore. "Lamar got as far as the airport but he couldn't make it. He retired right at the bottom of the steps to the plane." Bulldogs Win Title In Large Fry Loop GAINESVILLE - The University of Florida's chapter of Sigma Delta Psi, a national athletic fraternity, has been named the outstanding chapter in the United States for the past year. The honorary fraternity is sponsored by the University of Florida's College of Physical Education and Health and Track Coach Jimmy Carnes serves as the faculty advisor. The Gator chapter inducted 25 new members and won the overall team championship scored on an individual participant and team basis with 7493.9 points. Florida was followed by Northern Illinois, Florida State University, Long Beach City College, The Citadel and the University of Arizona. In order to be eligible for the fraternity, one must pass 15 athletic events in a required time or distance. Last year, Gator athletes nailed seven records and former basketball and track star, Harry Winkler, won the best all-around athlete title. Winkler, a 1963 graduate of Forest Hill High in West Palm Beach, now is a graduate student and assistant track coach here. Florida's chapter was organized In 1936 and under the direction of Dean D. K. Stanley It has become the number one club in the country. Florida's 25 new THE TWO BEST Halloween parties in football are Chicago's and Bufialo's. The Bills' defensive line outdid themselves. Jim Dunaway and Tom Sestak came as Tiny Tim and Hell's Angel. Ron McDole came with feathers all over him, Chicken Man, but the Days won the prize. Tom came as a ten pin and Mrs. Day came as a bowling ball. I'd probably still be following that mule in Alabama," the rookie Representative said. Mlzell, the big, barefoot boy from Vinegar Bend, Ala., who hurled seven seasons for the Cardinals, conceded his reputation as a baseball character would precede him to Congress, but he said he didn't think it would hamper his effectiveness. "I accept this responsibility with sincerity and honesty, and I expect to be judged on that basis," he said In words that already rang with Congressional tones. WASHINGTON (AP) Vinegar Bend Is going to Congress. Wilmer Mlzell, the colorful soft-drawling southpaw who used to pitch for the St. Louis Cardinals, will be in the starting lineup In the House when the next Congress opens Its season In January. Mlzell, now 38, won election as a freshman Republican from North Carolina by defeating the wealthy heir to a tobacco fortune. But without baseball, it wouldn't have been possible, he said Wednesday. "If it hadn't been for baseball, mm Kiwanis finished 4-0-2, while 2 nun Rotary was 3-1-2. In the other half of the twin bill, the Clvltan Chiefs defeated LAKE WORTH The Kiwa-nls Bulldogs, although held to a 7-7 tie by the Rotary Bears Tuesday night, won the championship of the Large Fry Football League. A victory by the Bears would have left the two teams tied. GEORGE ALLEN was absolutely super-agreeable after the Bears lost their punter Bobby Joe Green. He couldn't wait to help his old team out and sent taxi-squad punter Jon Kilgore to Chicago forthwith. Allen's motives were simple. He is dying to get Bears' fat fullback Andy Livingston who has been handled by the Bear braintrust with less than tactful patience. MM I -Itl l i: SKA II" Hit.

Rotary got its touchdown when Guy Rowell stole the ball from John Moore, who had Just intercepted a pass, and fell into the end zone. Terry Strickbine made the extra point.

Billy Grimes returned a kick-off 80 yards and Billy Goulet ran 52 for the Clvltans' two touchdowns. Goulet accounted for the conversion.
