24 Palm Beach Post, Wed., November 13, 1968 Elbin Promises: PGA Will Survive Expos May Train Here Next Spring r t V " i r N V 1V Hi. V v n tal In setting up the Education Department. Under his chairmanship, a home study program, which will be available next year, was set up. Previous winners of the Horton Smith award were Emil Beck, St. Clair, Mich., in 1963. Gene C. Mason, Portland, Ore., in 1966, and Don Fls-chesser of River Dale, N.J., last year. Loudermilk, a 46-year-old Texan, became a club pro in 1953. He is president of the Southern Texas PGA section. Hardy is rated as a top flight teacher and one of his prize pupils is Kathy Whitworth, one of the top five in women's pro golf. The PGA pro of the year is picked Lorn sectional nominees submitted annually to the awards committee. From the nominations five finalists are chosen. Others nominated this year were Les Frisinger, the Florida PGA section pro fo the year; Hubert Smith of Tennessee, Fairley Clark of the Carolina section, and James Rudolph of Southern Ohio. He is a former PGA champion, has played the tour, has been a club pro. After his schooling. Chick went into business as a produce salesman but the lure of golf was too strong and he turned pro. He takes a dim view of the future of breakaway pro. Something similar to this rift came up during his four terms as a member of the PGA tournament committee. He never favored a breakaway from the PGA and still does not. "I see the tour players getting what they want by this break," he said, "but they will become completely disenchanted with what they have in a short year's time." Chick played on two Ryder Cup teams, captained one of them, won several tour tournaments, the Michigan open four times and the Michigan PGA title six times. Clarke, who is a national PGA vice-president, has served as chairman of the PGA Education Committee and was instrumen ... ?;p:- i . hy m ? - City Commissioners Tuesday approved a request by the Atlanta Braves which paves the way lor two major league baseball p.-"ns to train in West Palm Beacn next spring. The Braves have been negotiating with officials of the Montreal Expos, one of two new Na-;ional League clubs, hoping to reach an agreement under which both teams would share spring training facilities at Municipal Stadium. However, Atlanta's lease arrangement with the city prohibited the Braves from sub leasing the stadium facilities without wTitten approval of the City of West Palm Beach. Now thev have that approval. City Manager William H. Tyre said he had conferred with Atlanta officials and with President John McHale and General Manager Jim Fanning of the Expos. "They anticipate that Montreal will use two fields and one clubhouse," Tyre reported. "It appears we will have two major league teams here in the spring, which I think is just great," added the city manager. There has been speculation the Braves would turn their stadium lease over to the Expos and move elsewhere, perhaps to Arixona, for spring training. Atlanta officials have not confirmed such a move, however. Earlier this month the Expos received Florida State League approval to take over the local minor league franchise which had been held by Atlanta for the past three years. Several Florida cities, including Lake Worth, have been mentioned as a possible spring training site for the new Montreal club. Lake Worth Mayor Robert C. Johnson was out of town and could not b reached for comment Tuesday night.

Kennedy of New York, sits on the bench with Milton Academy end Tom Wales of Southboro during a Saturday afternoon football game with Noble and Greenough at Dedham, Mass. Milton won, 27-8. Young Kennedy suffered a knee injury in his first practice session this year and underwent surgery to remove cartilage. Since that time he has joined teammates on the bench out of uniform, both at home and on the road. Entries Results HIGH SCHOOLS By Chuck Otterson By CHUCK VOORHIS Golf Editor Three of four annual awards were made Tuesday night at the President's dinner, the social highlight of the PGA meetings now in progress at the Palm Beach Towers. Retiring PGA president, Max Elbin of the Burning Tree Club in Maryland, presented: To Chick Harbert of Miami, former PGA champion, and a veteran pro, his scroll of membership to the Golf Hall of Fame, the 39th such member. To Hardy Loudermilk of the Oak Hills Country Club, San Antonio, the award as the PGA Professional-of-the-Year. To R. William Blarke of the Hillsdale Country Club, Phoenix, Md., the Horton Smith award. This award is for the pro who had made an outstanding contribution to the field of pro golf education. The fourth award for the outstanding pro of the year was not made. This is annually made to the player who is either the leading money winner on the tour or who has scored the most notable victories of the year. Jack Nicklaus won it last year but the reason for not awarding it this year was explained by Elbin: "We did not want to embarrass ourselves or the player who would have to come from the current crop of players. Undoubtedly the choice would have been one of those who is now a member of the APG. We would have put him on a spot of accepting the PGA honor or ignoring it. Either way it would ahve embarrassed him as well as us." In his talk to the delegates and guests at the dinner, Elbin did not spell out the future of the PGA tour. Before the dinner he said that many sponsors have accepted the APG. "These are difficult days and there are some dark days ahead hut the PGA will survive," he said. Elbin is due to be succeeded by Leo Fraser of Atlantic City, present secretary, as president at elections to he held this week. Elbin was warmly praised by officials of the USGA and the Canadian Golf Association. Hord Hardin, president of the USGA said that the "presence here of myself and Joe Dey (executive secretary of the USGA) reaffirms our faith in the PGA to continue its responsibility in the promotion of golf. No matter what happens in this squabble, I know that the PGA Is dedicated to the best Interests of golf." Curtis Person Sr., chairman of the PGA Advisory Committee, called it an honor to be associated with the PGA and said he hoped to continue this association. Twenty representatives of golf equipment manufacturers were in attendance at the dinner. Harbert, now a vice-president of a Florida land development company, is still actively involved in golf. Ills company developed the St. Lucie Golf and Country Club where the orld Southern Senior, the Perry Como Invitational and the U.S. Pro-Am are being played this month and next.

Picking a winner in the Vero Beach Seacrest game or the Kennedy-Carver scrap is about as easy as wrestling a shark and coming out in one piece. You can analyze both games for a week without knowing any more than you did when you started. Comparative scores are meaningless. Physically, the teams are about as evenly matched as any you'll find; the outcome of each contest probably will be decided by which squad is mentally ready for a supreme effort. An early break in either contest could give one of the teams enough of a lift to jump out in front, gain momentum and make the game more one-sided than anyone anticipated. All four schools boast stingy defenses, setting the stage for a pair of hard-hitting defensive battles. But all possess versatile offensive attacks as well, so the games could turn into high-scoring affairs. Anyone who has a coin in his pocket has as good a chance as the so-called experts of forecasting these games correctly. Prediction (for what's worth): VERO BEACH 14, SEACREST 10 Vero Beach, with no apparent defensive weakness, has yielded only 15 points in eight games. Seacrest, with a vulnerable pass defense, has given up 46. If a weakness exists, Vero will make the most of it. KENNEDY 14, CARV ER 13 Carver has given up only two touchdowns all season. But the Eagles haven't faced anything like Henry Coleman, Tommy Toombs and Alvonzo Clark. Other games: THURSDAY PB GARDENS 19, PALM BEACH JV 13 Gators can't afford to lose to a Junior varsitv opponent. DAYTONA LOPEZ 27, GIFFORD 13 - It's been a long season for the Tigers. FRIDAY PALM BEACH 10, NORTH SHORE 7 Terry Rowe's toe makes the difference. ROOSEVELT 12, LAKE SHORE 7 - But it won't be easy. FOREST HILL 20, JUPITER 0 - Falcons avenge last year's loss to the Warriors. LAKE WORTH 20, LEONARD 13 - Trojans have an edge in size and depth. PAHOKEE 27, BOCA RATON 13 - Blue Devils clinch a tie for Western Division championships. NEWMAN 20, MIAMI MILITARY 0 Crusaders are back on the winning track. MOORE HAVEN 34, BISHOP VEROT 0 Mo contest. LAKE PLACID 27, FROSTPROOF 19 A real donnvbrook. MARTIN COUNTY 13, BELLE GLADE 7 Defending champion Martin Countv keeps its Suncoast West title hopes alive. DAYTONA CAMPBELL 19, LINCOLN PARK 12 - Could go either home field edge. DAN McCARTY 13, MERRITT ISLAND 12 Could go either way. AVON PARK 13, OKEECHOBEE 7 - But don't bet on It. Tom Dorsett's Brahmans finally won a game last week; they may decide they like the idea. CLEWLSTON 13, LMMOKALEE 12 Tigers are improving every week. SATURDAY JOHN CARROLL 20, ALVA 19 - Victories have been few and far between for the Rams this year; they can't afford to let this one slip by. PINE CREST 20, ST.

Forest Hill quarterback Dick Hopkins has climbed Into a tie for the passing lead among Sun-coast Conference Eastern Division football players. Hopkins completed five of nine passes against Dan McCarty to deadlock Vero Beach's Tim Testerman for first place. Test-crmun failed to complete a pass in three attempts against Martin County. Seacrest's Steve Hardin, who was second last week, also went 0-for-3 and had two passes intercepted against Satellite, dropping him to third place. At least four players are waging a stiff fight for the pass receiving lead. Forest Hill's William Wilson is in first place with 16 receptions for 164 yards, but Ernest Williams of Seacrest and Mike Kellty of Riviera Beach are right behind with If) grbs apiece. Dennis Downs of Vero Beach has ca'ight 14. Seacrest's Dennis Matthews has pulled within 13 yards of rushing leader Mike Humphrey of Lake Worth. Humphrey has gained 637 yards in 106 carries, a 6.(1 average, while Matthews who piled up 160 yards last week against Satellite is second with 624 yards in 64 tries, a 9.8 average. Forest Hill's Sandy Cushman, who carried the hall 33 times for a net loss of one yard while playing quarterback in the Falcons' first four games, has carried 88 times for 399 yards as a fullback in the last four games, moving him into the top ten for the first time this season. Cushman ranks ninth with 398 yards in 121 attempts. Seacrest Is tops offensively with an average of 319.9 yards per game. Vero leads in team defense with an average yield of 89.6 vards per contest.
