By FKED BYROD Inquirer Sports Reporter NORTH FIELD, N. J Sept. 19 Forty-nine-year-old Spencer Overton, from Baltimore's Rolling Road Club, gave the youngsters another golfing lesson today when he won the medal with a five-under-par 35-32 67 in the qualfylng round of the fourth annual Fraser Invitation Tournament at the Atlantic City Country Club. The graying, bespectacled Overton, many times Maryland Amateur champion and current Maryland Open ruler, breezed home three strokes in front of his closet rival with a new qualifying round record. The old record joint achievement of Overton. Billy Hyndman and J. Wood Piatt last year, was 71. IT'S THE SALT AIR Little Harry Elwell, Ocean City, turned in the only other suo-par card, 35-35 70. Al Bcsselink, Spring Hill, 36-3672, and Ed Semmler. Kenwood. Washington. D. C, 38-34 72, landed on the line. A sniff of salt air always seems to bring out Overton's best golf. He twice won the Gelst Memorial Cup tournament at Seaview in pre-war years and got to the semi-finals here last year before being bounced out by Hyndman. ONLY ONE BOGIE Hyndman, who had won or tied for the medal in all three previous tournaments, had to skip this one because of torn shoulder ligaments Also absent, incidentally, is the 1946 winner, Howard Everitt, who whipped Bill in the final. Overton digressed from par only once, missing the green on the sec- W.Chester Beats Moravian, 20-6 Carloza, DaLonza Score Touchdowns In Opening Game WEST CHESTER, Pa..

Womrn'a Division Toronto, Ont. 1 f ort Worth, Teg. By ART MORROW Erown as old saddle leather and, they hope. Just as tough, the University of Pennsylvania's football players returned yesterday from pre-season maneuvers at Hershey, and Head Coach George Munger pronounced it the most successful training venture in years. Where a year ago passer Bob Evans came back with an unhinged knee, runner Al Sica with an aching bnek, signal-caller Carmen Falcone with a torn Achilles tendon and even big George Savitsky with a tender elbow, the Quakers arrived yesterday in condition for the opener with Lafayette College, even if that conflict were to be held today Instead Gloucester 7 of two weeks hence. ONLY TWO SIDELINED Only two players might possibly have to be withheld if the action were today, and one of these, Passaic's wingback Bob Topchick, was able to frolic around the practice field at Hershey yesterday morning ss the other members of the, squad romped through a signal drill designed to increase their speed. Topchick suffered a pulled tendon in the right leg; but will be ready for full-scale action Monday, as will Jim McCullough, the 200-pound short guard whose twin brother, 180-pound John, is a long guard. Jim, who pulled a tendon in his left leg, was the only Pennsylvanian injured in actual scrimmage. It was an easy trip for Dr. Harry Hoffman, the team physician, and Trainers Billy Morris and Mickey McLaughlin. FEW BUMPS, BRUISES "The easiest." said Mickey, "in about six years. There were only few injuries that caused any one to miss any practice. Charles Hassler. the center, turned his ankle last Saturday, and Jerry McCarthy, the end, was out a day or two with m. bruised elbow. Jim Conway, the tackle, hurt his shoulder foolinz around without pads ore day. and Don Schneider, the halfback, had a slight leg pull. But all these fellows are okay now, and otherwise all we had to cope with were the run-cf-the-mine bqmps and bruises." McLaughlin ascribes the happy state of affairs to "just luck," but Munger has another explanation. "Football Is. a game that requires year-'round conditioning." says he. "If the' fellows wait until practice starts to begin whipping themselves into shape, there are bound to be a lot of injuries. This year the fellows all reported in good condition; most of them worked hard all summer, some of them in laboring jobs, others as counsellors in boys' camps, like Continued on Page 19, Column 4
