3S Akron Beacon Journal Tuesday, July 14, 19G4 Keiser Cooks Rivals' Goose With Hot Putter Fires 67 In Canton Tourney Round Includes Five Birdies By PINDY WAGNER Some say, and believe, that life begins at 40, but Herman Keiser is beginning to think that 50 may be a better figure. The 1946 Master's golf champion is approaching the half-century mark with a birthday coming up in October. First to admit that his big-time golfing days are behind, the operator of a new golfing range on old Rt. 21 between Copley and Loyal Oak, Insists there's still a lot of life and golf in the 50-year-old frame. Keiser won the Canton Open championship over 18 holes Monday at Shady Hollow Country Club, near Massillon, with a brilliant 33-34-67 round In a stiff wind, which chopped five strokes from par of 36-36-72. EN ROUTE, Keiser birdled five holes and parred the re-i maining 13, with nary a bogey. His first birdie fell on the third hole where he dropped a five-foot putt for three. On the sixth he canned a 12-foot-er for three. On the ninth he holed a 25-foot putt for four. He nailed his fourth bird on the 11th where he canned a seven-foot putt for deuce. The last one came on the 12th as he dropped a 20-foot putt for four. Keiser returned to the scene of his triumph In the Ohio Open championship In 1949 and found the course still to his liking. Competing Sunday in Ra-wiga Country Club's pro three member bestball tourna' ment, Keiser set a new course record of 66, six under par, playing the entire round in heavy rainfall. So the gent who will be around at J. Edward Good Park Aug. 3 and Aug. 10 bidding for his fifth Akron Open championship, was 11 under par for 36 holes played Sunday and Monday. "MAYBE you should return to the PGA tour," a wag suggested. To which Herman re plied, "I may do Just that for a few tournaments. Keiser beat out two other Akron area professionals for the top spot in the Canton clouting. Dom Capatosta, 46- year-old Goodrich employe and part-time teaching pro at Tur keyfoot golf course, held the early lead with 35-35-70, two under par. Jim Gantz, Silver Lake CC tutor, playing In the threesome with Keiser, wound up with 34-36-70 to deadlock with Capatosta for second spot. Keiser picked up $230 for his 18-hole hike, while Capa tosta and Gantz collected $105. The prize pot totaled $800, with top 10 pros and seven leading amateurs splitting the spoils.

Geveland May Remodel Stadium CLEVELAND (OPS) A $1,785,000 improvement plan for Cleveland Stadium was un veiled today by council presi dent James Stanton. The plan Includes two sets ox escalators to tne upper deck, a new baseball press box and remodeling of rest rooms, It also includes but does not recommend strongly a walkway from the mall. The council president made plain most of the improvements would be dependent on a commitment from the Indians to remain in Geveland and said Indians' president Gabe Paul would be asked for such a promise Monday. By Associated Preaa Homeruns were flying over American League fences at a record clip but Al Lopez wasn't concerned until one of them got lost on Charley Finley's pennant porch. The the White Sox pilot blew his top. There were 25 homers hit in the AL Monday, four more than the previous mark for one league in a five-game schedule and one more than Lopez' count. He's convinced that Wayne Causey's homer in the second game of a doubleheader, a three-run shot that led to an 8-7 Kansas City victory over the White Sox, was nothing more than a figment of Fin-ley's runaway green and-gold drawing board. CHICAGO had taken the first game, 8-6, and was lead' ing, 6-3, in the seventh inning of the nightcap when Causey's drive fell where a pole sepa rates the shortened portion of Municipal Stadium from the high wall in center field. The umpires ruled the ball had cleared the porch's low fence. Lopez contended it had hit the wall in center and was playable. Lopez lost the de bate and was tossed out of the game when he resumed it an inning latter. Ron Hansen of the White Sox and the Athletics' Jim Gentile then matched eighth' inning homers before Cau sey's bases-loaded single in the ninth broke up the eight- homer slugfest THE SPLIT cost Chicago a chance to gain 112 games on league-leading Baltimore, which dropped a 10-inning, 4-3, decision to Detroit. The New York Yankees, however, gain ed a game on the prioles with a 10-4 rout of Cleveland. San Francisco held its Na tional League lead with a 5-3 victory over Houston while second-place Philadelphia edg ed Milwaukee, 3-2. CHISOX 8-7, A's 6-8 The Chicago-Kansas City twin bill produced 11 home runs. First-game winner Gary Peters, 104, poked a three run homer to pace the White Sox' 16-hit attack. George Alu sik and Dick Green connected for the A's. Pete- Ward, Don Buford Gene Stephens and Hansen homered for the Sox; Manny Jimenez, Ed Charles, Causey and Gentile for the A's in the nightcap. GIANTS 5, COLTS 3 The San Francisco-Houston series, filled with rhubarbs and odd occurences, settled down somewhat although Colt manager Harry Craft was tossed out. Giant slugger Orlando Cepeda batted in a Mac Divot pair of runs and rookie Jim Hart slugged a homerun to offset a solo blast by the Colts' Bob Aspromonte. PHILS 3, BRAVES 2 The Phillies, who had lost four straight to lefthanders, snapped the string by beating Warren Spahn as Richie Allen slammed a double and triple and scored two runs. Spahn's loss left him with a 6-9 record but he went the distance for the first time in 12 games. CUBS 10, DODGERS 4 The Cubs beat the Dodgers and Don Drysdale, 11-8, with a five-run uprising after two were out in the sixth inning. Andre Rodgers' three-run homer was the big blow.
