8 - Tuesday, July 2. »t3 Redlonds Daily forts Takes $22,000 swag Palmer shoots 67 to win playoff easily CLEVELAND. Ohio (UPI)-Ar nold Palmer, with a new money record of $85,545 in the bank, today planned a "vacation" during which he will shoot for his third straight British Open golf championship. "I guess I've proved I could come back." said the guy who apparently had never been away from the manner in which he ripped Tony Lema and Tommy Aaron in a playoff for the $22,000 top money in the SUO.OOO Cleveland Open golf championship. He was the Palmer of old as he fired a four-under-par 32-35— 67, despite a nonchalant bogey on the final hole, to win by three unpressed shots and break his all- time money record of $81,448, which he set last year. Whatever he wins in the British Open next week will not count in the "official" money winning records kept by the Professional Golfers Association. But Palmer doesn't mind, for in the last three weeks, and all of them playoffs, he has picked up $54,000. That doesn't include the $1,500 bonus he received in tile U.S. Open playoff or the approximately $3,000 he received as his share of the gate receipts in Monday's playoff over the sunbaked, hot and humid Beechmont Country Club course. Best All Year "From tee to green, I played the best I have all year," said Palmer, who had taken four weeks off the tour to rest after a sorry showing in the Colonial at Fort Worth. That left some people wondering if perhaps Amic's innumerable outside activities hadn't caught up with his game. "I never was worried about my game—all I thought 1 needed was a little rest," Palmer said. "I took that rest—and well, you can see what has happened." What happened was: He tied with Paul Harney in the SIOO.OOO Thunderbird tourney three weeks ago and beat him on the first hole of a sudden death playoff for the $25,000 first money. He tied Julius Boros and Jacky Cupit for the U.S. Open championship the following week, and lost to Boros in a playoff, picking up $7,000. Then he tied Lema and Aaron and beat them in Monday's playoff for that big $22,000 payoff. Plans More Tourneys After the British Open Palmer plans to compete in 5 to 10 more tournaments, but he refused to speculate on his chances of topping the $100,000 money mark. "I never go into a tournament without thinking I'm going to win it," Palmer said. "But when you have such fine young players as Lema and Aaron in there shooting against you, the going is tough. "I had to be at my best to beat them—and I was. But I'll sure be disappointed if both Tony and Tommy don't keep going. I've been especially dose to Lema. W9 roomed together when I won the Mobile Open in 1960 and you just can't believe how much he has improved smce then." Lema paid tribute to Palmer. "All of us who play golf for a living owe an awful lot to Arnie," said Lema. "He has made the game what it is for us today. He brings out the crowds, and that means money. And in addition to being a great golfer, he's a great guy." Lema wound up with a 35-35—70 and Aaron with a 37-33—70. They split the second and third place money and received $8,550 each —not counting their cut of the gate receipts. Baseball for Boys ELKS Major Dave Kolner hurled a thrilling one-hit ball game for Stater Brothers as they downed Gill Electric, 1-0.

(UPD- Darlene Hard of Los Angeles, making her final bid for the Wimbledon women's singles crown, and two other American lasses drew dangerous opponents in today's quarter-finals. Miss Hard, who has indicated she will retire from competitive tennis when she weds later this year, was pitted against fifth- seeded Jan Lehane of Australia. Billie Jean Moffitt. the little giant-killer from Long Beach, Calif., met former champion Maria Bueno of Brazil, and Donna Floyd Fales of Arluigtnn, Va„ faced third-seeded Ann Haydon- Jones of England. The fourth match brought together top-seeded Margaret Smith of Australia and Renee Schuurman of South Africa. Miss Hard, the No. 1 U.S. women's player and seeded fourth here, twice has advanced to the Wimbledon final before losing. She bowed to Althea Gib-j son in an Ail-American matdi in 1957 and lost to Miss Bueno in the 1959 tiUe round. Chuck McKinley of San Antonio, Tex., will be the lone Yank m the men's singles when it resumes Wednesday with the semifinals. McKinley will play Germany's Willy Bungert, who produced the tournament's biggest upset Monday by eliminating defending champion Hoy Emerson of Australia, 8-6, 3-6, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3. Top price $25,000 for Yanks First year rule checks baseball's bonus binge NEW YORK — (NEA) — The fu-st year player rule has shaken unproved baseball prodigies off the gravy train. After having spent enough money to support 50 or more minor leagues for years, the major league magnates finally smartened up. Two years ago they put into effect a regulation making any recruit not on the parent outfit's roster subject to irtevoc- able waivers at 58,000 or minor league draft at the same figure after the first year. In other words, a kid banking $80,000 could go for $8,000 unless he showed major league talent "in a hurry. "From now on there will be only isolated cases of prospects getting big money," said John J. Johnson, director of New York Yankee farm clubs in his office high in the Squibb Building on Fifth Avenue. "The new clubs trying to get somewhere ahead of schedule or established ones badly in need of a key player no doubt will occasionally still throw important money around, but generally speaking the recruits' gold rush is over. I can think of only four who got a lot of money this year." Johnny Johnson listed Jeff Torborg, the Rutgers catcher going to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a reported $100,000; Dave Bennett and Wally Bunker, pitchers picked up by the Philadelphia Phillies and Baltimore Orioles, respectively, for an announced $75,000; and Dave Duncan, a San Diego catcher for whom the Kansas City Athletics are supposed to have forked over $60,000. The Yankees signed 33 — 16 pitchers, three catchers, two first basemen, seven infielders and five outfielders. The club does not give out figures, but chatting with Johnson you gathered that the top price was $25,000 and many of the pheenoms collected considerably less. Asked to designate the new hands rated best by the Bronx scouts, Johnson named Arcliie Moore, an outfielder out of Springfield (Mass.) College; Billy Clayton, an outfielder out of Maryland Heights, Mo., High School; Herb Feris, a lirst baser^ from Westmont, 111.; and Steve Sundra, son of the onetime Yankee and like bis father a big pitcher with natural stuff. Moore is believed to have banked the capital prize, $25,000. A good guess on Clayton and Feris would be $20,000 and on Sundra $25,000. "We have been watching Moore for several years in college and on New Jersey sandlots," explained Johnson. "He is big — 6-2 and 190 — and has a left-hand swing custom made for Yankee Stadium. He repeatedly hit balls into the seats in workouts there. All the coaches and players liked him. We sent him directly to Augusta of the AA Sally League." Qayton, also 6-1 and 190 and only 18, and Feris, 6-1 and 195 and 19, were signed by Lou Mag- uloa, who threw the net over Tony Kubek and Bill Skowron and has yet to recommend a player who wasn't useful. Clayton and Feris played football and basketball and three or four positions in baseball in high school and on the sandlots. They are now with Harlan, Ky., in the Rookie League. Frank O'Rourke, who played shortstop for Ty Cobb in Detroit, has a hand in signing Moore and brought in Sundra, who lives in Atlantic City and attended the University of Delaware. "We look for good athletes who can swing a bat and pitchers who throw hard," said Johnny Johnson. "But we're through paying a fortune for them." Postrano may meet Thornton in title bout MIAMI BEACH (UPD - Willie Pastrano's managers tentatively have made a $70,000 dale for their new light heavyweight champion — a title bout against hard-hitting Wa>Tie Thornton of Fresno, Calif. Fresno sports promoter Harold E. Murell proposed the fight in a telegram Monday sent to Pastrano's home here. Pastrano's manager, Angelo Dundee, telegraphed back a conditional acceptance. Dundee asked for a $10,000 "good faith binder" which would be forfeited if the contract were not signed within 15 days after both parties agreed to conditions of the match. If it does come off, it could be a corker. The prancing Pastrano and his punching Pacific rival have met three times and come out of the hassles even-steven. Each won a split decision, and they fought to a draw once before Pastrano won the light- heavyweight CrOHTl. STANDINGS American League W. L. Pet.

Muncey ticks off 113iinMiss Thriffway DETROIT (UPD - Bill Muncey, relaxed and lead-footed, pushed his Miss Thriftway to a record Monday in the qualifying rounds of the Gold Cup race to be held Sunday. Muncey, a Seattle resident and four-time winner of the coveted cup, ticked off an average speed of 113.207 miles an hour for three laps around the three-mile course on the Detroit River. Muncey's second lap. of 114.893. was the fastest lap ever posted on the course, bettering the mark set by Jack Regas in 1957 during the Silver Cup race. Regas was in Hawaii Kai at the time. A change of names for Muncey's boat seems to have done a world of good. She campaigned last year under the name of Century 21. She broke a crankshaft in her last race in September at the close of the season. Don Wilson was the only other driver to qualify Monday. He averaged 109.169 miles an hour in Miss US-5. Wilson's boat was the former Hawaii Kai. Ron Musson in Miss Bardahl, BUI Cantrell in Gale V, and Freddie Alter in Mariner Two pulled into the pits before taking their full three laps. A boat must average at least 90 miles an hour for three laps to qualify in the race Sunday.

Never close doors Australian bowling so popular it's rationed NEW YORK-(NEA) - A connoisseur of fractured English would thorougly enjoy Joe Velo and Frank Clause. Velo is an Italian who emigrated to Australia at 18 and speaks accordingly. Clause speaks beautifully — he is a former school teacher — but reads aloud writings about himself from the Orient, gathered on a rou-id-the-world bowling clinic tour. Both are top professional bowlers and their paths crossed in Australia the first time and again at Toots Shor's. "Blymey, this-a Frank, he's-a maka me so good after two lessons I roll a 300 gyme," said Velo, tranfixing a waiter with his Italo- Australian delivery. "I'm the first- a man in Austrj-lia to bowel a pcrfecta gyme." Velo was given a free trip to Europe and the States by one of the big manufacturers of bowling equipment (AMF) for his feat. He also won a thousand pounds cash from a big oil company. "listen to this from The Sports Nippon," said Clause, coming up with a clipping. " 'Mr. Clause is 50 years old, weight 176 pounds, kind fat man, seems a lump of stamma, it says. 'He has strong arms and the impressive wrinkled face of showmanship.' " Translated, Velo's next remarks conveyed the information that Australia, where bowling was unknown before October, 1960, now has three million participants, which is remarkable with a population of fewer tban ii million. Business is so good that establishments never close and play is rationed at three games to a customer on any given day, pay in advance. "Lines (lanes) are so busy they average 48 gymes a dye," Velo said. "That's-a three and a halfa gymes each hour." "Listen to this, also from Japan," said Clause, reading again. "It says I 'experienced first few clinics very timidly.' It also ssys I said, 'The increasing pitch of bowling enthusiasts are not at all inferior to that of America,' but I don't remember saying that — at least not that way." Clause did say that the growth Schoen wins in first round Bedlands netter Bill Schoen moved through the first round of Junior boys singles play in the 47th annual La JoUa tennis tournament yesterday. Schoen defeated Ballent in straight sets 6-0, 6-1 to move into second round action. He is a member of the University of Redlands tennis squad and a former Ter- ier netter. of bowling in Japan was limited only by the amount of space avail able. "They have to build vertically, not horizontally, erecting lanes on the tops of buildings, m cellars or anywhere else in the crowded country that a few feet of space can be squeezed out." "Japanese bowlers are very good, too," Clause admitted. "They practice hard and are in top shape. They even run to work to keep fit." Velo was operating a bicycle shop in Corrimal, about 60 miles from Sydney, when bowling came to his adopted land. He rolls right- handed, but off his right foot like the boccie players of his native counto". By the time Clause made his trip Down Under, Velo was considered good enough to roll against him — and he beat Frank by one pin, much to everybody's surprise. Clause pointed out a few kinks in Velo's form and a few days later came the perfect game. "It's-a been dinkum being 'ere, and I hope I can coma back agyne," said Joe Velo as he left the restaurant. "Me, too," grinned the waiter, who hadn't had so much fun since the last time Jackie Gleason was in the joint. New hunting licenses after July] Hunters were reminded today by the California Department of Fish and Game that a new hunting license for the 1963-64 hunting seasons will be required after July 1. The new license, which will be effective from July 1, 1963, through June 30, 1964, will be the same as last year's, with one exception. Instead of listing age, the applicant will list year of birth. Nimrods will fill out the application, and when the license agent affi.\es the hunting stamp to the application, it becomes a valid hunting license for the 1963-64 year. Fees are $4 for a resident, $25 for a non-resident, and $1 for a junior hunting license. A junior, a perswi under 16 years of age, must have a prior year's California hunting license or must present a certificate of completion of a state-approved hunter safety training course. SIGN WITH EAGLES PHILADELPHIA (UPD-Ends Dick Lucas and Ken Gregory have signed contracts with the Philadelphia Eagles for 1963- raising the Natiwial Football League club's roster to 43 players. All or nothing Amie in top bracket with sports 'killers By OSCAR FRALEY UPl Sports Writer CLEVELAND (UPD - You have to put Arnold Palmer into the top bracket with all the famed "killers" of sports today. Talk about Jack Dempsey in the ring, if you will. Or Bill Tilden on the tennis courts; Jim Thorpe on the gridiron, or Manolete in the blood and steel of the bull ring. But this guy is something special, too, well fitted to walk with such fairway immortals as Walter Hagen, Bobby Jones and Ben Hogan. He proved it Monday in the heat which smothered Beechmont Country Club, a rolling golf course on the periphery of Cleveland where the breathless humidity lays m the hollows and wilts the starch out of a railroad tie. Third Tie In Row This was the thin) week in a row he had been involved in a tie and bad to play off for the marbles. Two weeks ago at the Thunderbird Classic he bested Paul Harney on the first extra hole in a "sudden death" playoff. Last week at Brookline he was beaten in a playoff for the U.S. Open championship. Dempsey lost a few, too. So did Tilden, Thorpe and Manolete. Now it was the third one in row, and there was $22,000 for first place as he went out agamst Tony Lema, a 29-year-old ex- Marine from San Leandro, Calif., and young Tommy Aaron, a former Walker Cupper from Gauiesville, Ga. The two who lost would wind up with $8,550 each. Not poverty wages, by any manner of means, but not the jackpot. And Palmer wanted this one because in copping it he would throw the lie at those who said he might be Imished. Plus the fact that it would boost his eammgs to $85,545 —a new all-time record for golf earnings in one year. Pride A Consideration It goes beyond money with Palmer. It is tremendous pride and a feeling that, everytime he vaUts out on the tee, he is the best The trio went out there in the muggy heat Monday and it was mdicative that Lema remarked "I can't finish any worse tban in a tie for second." Palmer never thought of second place. With bun, like with all of the great ones, it was the ball of wax or nothhig. He took a one shot lead on Lema and two on Aaron by the time they had reached the fourth hole and then it all could iiave gone down the drain. Palmer missed the green and left his chip 35 feet short. The others were on the carpet looking for birdies and the whole thing could have changed right there. So he stepped up and knocked it into the cup—and the other two right out of the box.. When it was over he had shot a four under paur 67, legging it home for an anticlimactic bogey on the final hole. The others had 70s, good for a tie for second place. Talk your Dempseys, your Til- dens, your Thorpes and your Manoletes. But don't ever forget the name of Arnold Palmer.

Aug. 16 LOS ANGELES (LTD-American and Mexican Davis Cup hopefuls will play their zone qualifying matches at the Los Angeles Tennis Club for the first time Aug. 16 through 18. Perry T. Jones, president of the Southern California Tennis Association, said in announcing the matches Monday that "there is a strong possibility the winner of these matches will finally de- tfu-one Australia." The Mexicans must first face Canada, but were expected to win that round easily. The American team, to be selected in about a month, will attempt to avenge Mexico's victory last year, which was the first time the south of the border country had defeated the United States in a challenge round.
