i C4 Palm Beach Post, Thurs., November 14, 1968 Elbin Sees PGA-APG Reunion Kentucky's Lyons Out For UF Go GOLF SCENE By Chuck Voorhis SMITH IN HIS REPORT TO THE DELEGATES attending the 52nd annual meeting of the PGA, formal sessions of which began Wednesday at the Palm Beach Towers, Max Elbin, retiring president, said he felt that someday "we'll all be back playing golf instead of fighting." This was In reference to the current split between the PGA touring pros and the new American Golfers Association. Elbin did not spell out how soon the reunion of the touring pros and the PGA would occur, but he made it clear again that the PGA had gone as far as it could to meet the demands of the touring pros. "We intend to stay In business," be told the delegates. "We mav suffer for awhile but we do not intend to sell our birthright (the tour)." He also disclosed that two sponsors whose tournaments had been claimed by the APG had called him this week in Palm Beach to Inform him that the claims were erroneous, that they had not signed with the APG and wanted further talks with the PGA people. Course Of W ar Reviewed Elbin spelled out the four principal Items of the program he sought to firm up when he became president three years ago. He cited the employment of an executive director to reorganize the By ED PAVELKA GAINESVILLE (AFN) -Florida continued Its Intensive preparation for Kentucky Wednesday amidst reports that Dickie Lyons, the Wildcats' offensive sparkplug and leading kick returner, will miss Saturday's contest. Lyons, an all-SEC halfback, Is said to be definitely out of the game with a separated shoulder, an injury suffered early in his team's six-zero loss to Vander-bilt last week. Nevertheless, the Gators are preparing for Kentucky as If Lyons will play the whole game. "Last Friday night Georgia Said Kemp (fullback Bruce) "but I say this reverently and with respect. He Is truly one of the finest athletes In the country." The Gator defense has also been working on stopping Kentucky's goal lineoffense and the Wildcats' outside running game. There has been special work all week on punt and kickoff coverage. Graves said he expects his defensive unit to be In good shape for the Lexington battle with only two of his starters currently on the injury list. Cornerback Steve Tannen has been bothered all week by a pulled groin muscle and tackle Mike Healey is slowed with an injured knee. Both are expected We suggested a meeting with the players during the Thunderbird Open but Gates said no players would appear. Later, the same day, announcement came out of New York of the formation of the APG. "I'm sorry to report no solution is in sight. We took the matter to court in Wilmington, N.J. The judge ordered all M documents taken from our files by a PGA employe who jumped to the APG. returned to us. He examined player agreements dating back to 1M7 and said he thought them valid. But he ruled against the injunction we sought to prohibit the APG from scheduling 1969 tournaments. He said he needed more facts, that there was no area of conflict between our dates and those set up by the APG. "We now have an appeal coming up in a Federal Court In Philadelphia Dec. 3. We have taken depositions from plavers and sponsors. "All we want Is equal control of the tour. "We will go ahead with our tour program. Many young pros have told us they will play In our tournaments even if the purses are in the $25,000 SM.OOO bracket. They are looking ahead to their future as a professional golfer. We intend to stay in business." Joe iXovak Settled This One Joe Novak, one of four former PGA presidents attending the sessions here, recalled the m revolt in which a player representative sought to take over the tour. He headed the Tournament committee and had signed up 25 top players to play It his wav. When things got really hot, Joe fired him. About the time the players warmed up to.renew the fight, the golf equipment people stepped in and pulled the rug from them. And that ended the revolt. Equipment people are generally backing the PGA in this row but have not gone to the extent Spalding did back in 1948. Elbin noted in his report that the sponsors had the ability to have prevented this current breach but lacked the capability of "uniting and offering effective support to their own best interests." There was a feeling among the club pro deleeates to the meeting that the new APG tour would have a brief and not too successful existence. headquarters offices at Palm Beach Gardens, the expansion of the education program, Improved public relations and official magazine, and the establishment of a pension program for PGA members. He cited Robert T. Creasey, executive director, for the fine job he had done under the first of the program; Patrick D. Williams, for his organization of the education program; Bud Harvey for his work in public relations and the official magazine, and announced the pension plan would go into effect Jan. 1, 1969. Then he came to the part of his report concerning the breakaway of the touring pros, a "report that I regret to make." "Although I realize that player dissatisfaction with the tournament program has erupted numerous times during the past 30 years, I regret that our relations with the players have finally come to the breaking point. The players rejected our new entry forms (presented at the Doral Open earlier this year) which were designed to line up the players for the tournaments and give us a bargaining point for television rights. I realize the terms of these forms may have been too severe." Objectionable Forms Revised He said the form had been rewritten in milder language but .he players still rejected them and hired Sam Gates, a New York ittorney, to speak for them. Elbin said the forms were not accept-ible to Gates. "The PGA then set up an 8-point program to cover our relations with the pros," Elbin said. "But we had to deal with Gates again and he turned these down. One of the clauses was for arbitration of our differences but Gates turned this down. We met with him in Washington but he said it was too late for negotiations. wouldn't even dress out for our Paterno Talking About Intangibles game, and he started against us the next day," Coach Ray Graves said. "This week we Won't be fooled again. We are preparing for Lyons. "I hope its a fact that we won't have to face him," Graves said, get any and you get licked. So thinK anyoody can beat any to start Saturday. Florida's thin linebacking crew will receive some needed depth for Kentucky with the return of sophomore Mike Kelley. Kelley, a starter until he Injured a knee In practice a month ago, will see some action Saturday behind outside linebacker David Mann. Offensively, things have brightened for Florida with fullback Larry Smith once again counted on for first string service. He will open against Kentucky with tailback Tom Chris UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.

"As I've said before," the "Perhaps the Terps don' have a great record," he said "But they have a young team, ATLANTIS Gladys Jowett of the home club checked in with an 82 to lead the field at the end of 18 holes of the 72-hole Golden , Golf Association championship at the Atlantis Country Club Penn State coach noted, "so many times this year the unranked and seemingly Inept teams have come on and upset the top runners." Our team realizes It has a tough game and the players must play well to win. Patemo expressed some con cern about the weather. Wednesday.

Jackie Eckdahl, who started behind center against Georgia, has relnjured his toe.

Tuesday has thrown our prac tice sessions out of sequence," State, third ranked In the UPI polls, Is regarded a top favorite to win its eighth game Saturday at the University of Maryland. "I think the way the game Is played today, as wide open as it is, with people who can pass and catch, anything can happen on one play," Paterno said. "All of a sudden somebody gets momentum.
