Miss Gibson Ceuld Share In 3 Titles WIMBLEDON, England (AP) Althea Gibson, the defending Wimbledon champion, has chance to share in three titles today in women's singles and doubles and mixed doubles. Miss Gibson , who first learned her .tennis on the crowded streets of New York's Harlem, faces the challenge of Angela Mortimer of Britain in the singles finals.

Thomson, only 28, and one of the most experienced players in golf, i* expected to win.

Thomas and Thomson forced the playoff late Friday when each alternated playing --brilliant goli and doing lUJy things, Thomio» started the final round with a tw«*«troke lead. In their final 18, which was a classic as a nerve-wracker, Thomas was good while Thomson was bad. And Tbpmas was bad when Thomson was good. Thomson's lead withered away, he got it back, losjt it and they finally wound up all even with 278 strokes each. Each broke the all-time open scoring mark- but neither was a winner.

Rubber City Open Enters Third Round By FRITZ HOWELL AKRON, Ohio (AP)—The utte contempt golfdom's professional are showing for par in the Rubbe City Open has convinced one o the most gallant campaigners o them all—ailing-armed Ed Furgo —that the time has come for him to quit the tournament trail. As the 60 play-for-pay survivors swung today into the third rounc of the $22,000 tourney, 45 were un dec par. The field was 159 stroke under par. The field was 15£ strokes under the card. Pacing the 10 remaining ama teurs was 18-year-old Jack Nick laus of Columbus, Ohio, with 133 total, nine strokes below reg ulation for Firestone Country Club's well-trapped and tree-dotted 6,620 yards. Art Wall Jr. from Pocono Man or, Pa., was out front with rounds of 65-67—132. That's 10 under par bqt it gave him only a stroke edge over Nicklaus, recent Trans-Mis sissippi winner; National Open king Tommy Bolt, Al Baldin of Canada, and Frank Phillips, Aus- .ralian champion from Sydney. Furgol was 12 strokes off the pace, barely evading the cut-off with a pair of 72s, two of his bet er rounds in this year. As he watched the low scores being post ed, Ed grinned and said: "These guys are always putting tor birdies, while I'm putting foi pars. I guess the time has come for me to quit the tour, get a good club job and settle down." Furgol, now 41. won the 1954 Na tional Open despite the handicap of a rigid left elbow and a lef arm six inches shorter than the right. As a result of his handicap he had a loop in the top of his swing and a dip in his knees as he hit the ball but he was one a the most feared and best-lilted competitors on the tour. Then his right arm—he calls it his pitching arm—also went bad. An operation was performed 11 A-eeks ago to remove several bone •nips and some calcium from the I bow. It doesn't hurt anymore, Furgol said, but he continued: "I'm like a pitcher with a sore arm. I've lost my fast ball. I'm litting just as I always did bul nothing happens. There's no 'zing' anymore."

Fishing can be taught at an earlier age than shooting. B. I. (Boss) Malley, Wood River, guest columnist for today, tells of his son's prowess n learning how to fish. The sug gestions are ideal for others also: "My son, Ross Michael Malley 11 years old, is five feet, five nches tall and weighs 170 pounds. He is a sixth grader. We call him Vlichael, but he is bettor known to his school mates as Mike. He started fishing with me at the age of five. His first catch was a very small bluegill in one of the lakes at Pere Marquette Park. That day he had a fair catch for one of his age. As the years rolled by, he became a confirmed bluegill fish- ej'man. "His favorite bait is earth worms, although he has landed bluegill on flies with worms, spinners, flies alone and insects. He las used a fly rod and casting rod but prefers a nine-foot cane pole vith the tapered end giving him he same action as using a fly rod. Play* Quarry "If possible, he tries to hook he bluegill in the upper lip. He does this by teasing the scrapper bluegill as if he is going to take away the baite. Mr. Bluegill gets >retty mad at this and when he tits, he strikes hard. And he ights the same way. Mike likes to play his fighter nto the bank. He doesn't flip them out of the water and into the air hen onto the >>••-'• as most amateurs do. Mike is strictly a bank fisherman. He likes to find his quarry by working along the shoreline looking for telltale markings Indicating the home ol bluegill. Favorite Water* *'A two-pound-ttgt leader one foot long, fastened to a 10-pounc nylon line seven feet long with a BB split shot about four inches from the hook is preferred by Mike. He also prefers a shor shank hook, although he has uset a long shank hook. The outfit i completed with a small red and white snap-on cork easily adjust ed for depth. Naturally, he has a favorite cork and has gone to a great deal of trouble to recover i when snagged. "Mike ha? landed small and big mouth bass, goggle eyes, she! crackers, and gold fish, the lat ter a species of carp especially bred for fish bowls. Apparently anglers used small gold fish fo bait, which escaped, and eventul ly gre wto large size, losing mos of the gold color. "The Alton-Wood River Sports men's club's nine-acre lake in Godfrey is Mike's favorite spot He has landed about 1,500 bluegill since he began fishing, rang ing up to nearly i pound in weight. This season to date, in about 12 irips to the Sportsmen's lake, he has taken more than SOU bluegill, about four dozen smai bass six to eight inches in length and gogle eyes up to 12 inches in length. Gives Many FUh Away "He outfishes his two sisters Delores Diana Halle), 21, and Rosena Flora Malley, 18. Mike fishes hard and never sits down Now he wants to try fishing ou of a boat and is saving his money to buy a Coast Guard approvec life jacket to wear while fishing in inland waters. "I go with Mike and help him in baiting hooks and taking fish olf the line.

But right now those odds don't ook favorable enough to Manager "red Haney of the front-running Milwaukee Braves. The reason is that the worst hitting slump of the season has fastened itself onto the world champions, limiting them to only 3 runs in their last 5 games, 4 oi which they've lost in a row. "We had slumps last year," Haney observed, "but I don't think we ever looked .this bad, W* dropped five straight on our last road trip, but at least we scored some runs." The Philadelphia Phillies, making their move a little earlier thif season than last when they won of their first 14 games in July and held first place for a tune, swept Friday's holiday double* header from the Braves 5-1 and 4-0. They now have won five in • row — their longest winning akeia oi the campaign. The Braves now lead second >Iace St. Louis by only 1% games. San Francisco is third, 2 games behind, and Philadelphia and Cincinnati are tied for fourth 3ft lack. 'It's one of those things," said laney. "Maybe when we finally break loose we'll be gone for good. f we hope to break this race vide open, we've got to start hit- ing soon. I hope we don't have o go down to the wire — I want o pull away. The sooner, the bet- er." Haney declined to pick.the on* club he thought had the best chance to overhaul the Braves, and he said he does not plan • wholesale shakeup of his club.
