PAGE 28 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N WEDNESDAY EVENING/JUNE I, I960 Styron Sees 21.5 In Low Hurdles LOS ANGELES--UP!--Versatile Don Styron predicts the world's low hurdle record will be lowered to 21.5 seconds, but the modest Northeast Louisiana State College athlete refuses to say he will be the man to do it. Styron has a pending world's record of 21.9 seconds and reports he has improved four- tenihs of a second even, 1 year he has competed. He currently is a junior at the Louisiana school. Don and his twin brother, Dave, appeared yesterday before the Southern California Track and Field Writers and Coaches Association to discuss ! their next competition, Friday ; night in the Compton, Calif., : Invitational Meet. · Dave Styron is the sprinter ; Drysdale Suffers | Bruised Foot i LOS ANGELES --Iff)--Los An-: geles pitcher Don Drysdale suffered a bad bruise when struck \ on the right foot by a batted ball \ and may miss a turn o n t h e ; mound. X-rays yesterday revealed n o ' fracture, however. He was struck \ in Monday night's game with St.! Louis. i and has a S,4 second mark in the 100-yajd dash but is looking forward to competing in the 100 meters at Compton because he feels the added distance might help him. Don Styron's prestnce in the meet led Director Herschel Smith to schedule the high hurdles as an added event to give the 20-year-old hurdler a chance to compete in the low hurdles, the high hurdles and the 400 meter hurdles in which he will me«t world's champion Glenn Davis and Southern California freshman star Rex Cawley. Don says to be a good low hurdler a man must be a good 440-yard runner b e c a u s e it takes as much effort to compete in the 220-yard hurdles as it does in the quarter mile. And at the Modesto Relays he ran a 46.3 440-yard anchor lap in t!ie mile relay while his brother ran 46.9. Smith reported he expected the 21st running of the Oregon Invitational to be the greatest meet in the history of that affair because of the presence of such stars as Jim Beatty in the 5,000 meters after his 3:58 mile at Modesto, three of the "big four" $hot putters, the Slammer, Thumper Swap Praise NEW YORK--i.y--Ted Williams a left-handed pro golfer? Sam Snead a major league baseball star? It could easily have happened according to these o 1 d fishing cronies. Writing for the July issue of Golf Digest Magazine, Snead expresses the belief that Ted could have been good in a big way on the pro golf circuit if he had taken up that game instead of baseball. And Williams claims Snead would have been a hitter of major league calibre and a "king-sized Yogi Berra" a s a catcher. Here's how they explain it: ! Snead: "Watch Williams when j : he bats. He's up there to knock j ' that ball as hard as he can and ; puts all his muscle and concen- i tration into every swing. | "Williams' wrist action Is im- i pressive, too. He has that 'dei layed' hit, holding those wrists ! back until the last second. Golf ; is a hitter's game, too. i "What about these finesse shots i around the green? If Williams can i bring in an 80 to 90 pound tarpon i on a fly rod, he could chip and I approach. He has that touch with · his extremely sensitive fingers." I Williams: "How could Snead miss as a hitter? With all of his massive strength and fluid co- ordination. Snead would have ter-! rorized pitchers for years. j "Among Snead's greatest assets in golf are strong wrists and forearms and sensitive hands. Can you imagine the impact speed he would be able to produce with a bat? "Snead might have set some kind of record for getting walks. His eyes are capable of detecting the slightest differences in the undulations of the greens. I've also seen him shoot a bird on the wing without getting his gun to his shoulder. He's a fast thinker. '"It follows that he would be able to restrict his baseball swing almost 100 per cent to pitches within the strike zone." Styron twins, possibly Herb j Elliott in the mile and numer- j ous others. j The track writers adopted a j resolution asking the Olympic I Selection Committee not to j change the rules for picking | marathon runners in Yirder to j qualify John Kelley of Boston who won the National AAU Marathon but failed to qualify j for the team. Bobby Cons of Culver City, Calif., would be eliminated from the team if Kelley is made eligible by a rules change. Mai Robertson of the Southern California Striders was chosen field athlete of the week for his all-time best winning javelin throw of 249 feet, 10 inches at Modesto. ASU Runners Set For Compton Meet TEMPE-UPI-Three Arizona State University athletes will compete Saturday in the Compton Relays at Compton, Calif. They are Alex Henderson in the 5,000-meter event; Mel Spence in the 880-yard run and Mai Spence, his twin, in the 440-yard dath. ?^ r-lir i / plus tax end 6.70-15 or 7.50-14 Tubtlcss or Tubt-Typ« Fit most modols of Ford, Chovroltt, Plymouth, Ramblor GUARANTEED NEW TREADS applied on sound tire bodies or on your own tires THESE TWO SYMBOL ° , '·"·'···· ·» WWAll fe^/ T «AO WDAUJON Sam* tread DESIGN as the Firtstone tirti on n«w 1960 cars Same Iread DEPTH ai the Firestone tires on new 1960 car* Sam« tr«ad WIDTH as the Firestone tirts on n«w 1960 can NATION-WIG^ GUARANTEE ·ur famous guaranttt SHOP CODE SENSATIONAL BUY Our qutlity is unmatched!

Sir Richard Brooke's Alcaeus, trained in Ireland, finished second in the field of 17 3-year-olds who started the 1%-mile classic. Another Irish colt, Rory and Frank More O'Ferrall's Kythnos, winner of the Irish 2,000 guineas, was third. THIS WAS the fourth Derby for Sir Victor, the international banker. He won with Pinza in 1953, Crepello in 1957 and Hard Ridden in 1958. The French colt, Angers, the 2-1 favorite owned by Mrs.. Ralph B, Strassburger of Norristown, Pa., and Paris, finished back in the pack. St. Paddy, ridden by Lester Piggott, started at odds of 7 to 1. Alcaeus was 1Q to 1, and Kythnos, 7-1. PIGGOTT HAD WON the 1954 Derby with Kentucky-bred Never Say Die, owned by the late R. S. Clark of Upperville, Va., and New York, ant. with Crepello. St. Paddy finished three lengths ahead of Alcaeus, and Kythnos was another half length behind. Piggott kept St. Paddy in a forward position throughout When the real running began in the last three eighths of a mile, he shot the British colt to the front and the issue never was in doubt. ONE OF THE BOYS . . . . . By AlanMaver L0f 'BOUPRfAV. WHO'S OriCSjttOf £//£ OF Fishing Improves At Rose Rose Canyon fiAing definitely improved on Mond«y, the final go-around of the "'long holiday weekend, reports from the new lake indicated. Forest and game officials checking Rose Canyon reported several limits of trout taken Monday. On Saturday, the inaugural day for the new trout lake atop Mt. Lemmon, and Sunday, fishing was slow and spotty from most accounts. Anglers who groused about not taking newly-planted trout from Rose Canyon Lake the first two days were mollified by Monday results--thote who stayed around to try again, that is. Jack Mantle, Tucson member of the State Game and Fish Commission, Mid the lake will be restocked with trout from time to time during the summer. Coronado National Foresters reported 6,400 persons were counted entering the road to Rose Canyon --off the Hitehcoclc Highway -over the three-day weekend! Ranger John W. Waters said, "This represents almost half of the 15,000 visitors to Mt. Lemmon over the weekend"' Waters went on to point out that many of those counted entering the road \vere not necessarily headed for fishing --there are camping, trailer and other facilities near the lake-"but a great many did go fishing," he added. Mantle said he was gratified by reports of good fishing at Rose Canyon Monday, and also by suc- os»s for anglers at Soldier Lake, which was stocked last week. At Pena Blanca Lake, angling took a mild "downturn over the weekend^ but fishermen who tried at night kept scoring better than the daytime average. Two Ft Huachuca soldiers. Master Sergeants Davis and Dervish, caught limits of channel catfish at Pena Blarrca, ranging ·bout IS to 17 inches in length. The John Wong party from Tucson, after a bad mid-week coup, returned and took home about 15 catfish and about five bass apiece. Tucsonian Frank Teague caught a 2^-lb. bass, the largest taken from Pena Blanca over the long holiday period. Other./ise, action was slower than usual. MOfte GAMES MA WEEK LOU (T WOULD B£ OKA/~ rH£yio$r ONLY one, Rigney Issues Distress Call' SAN FRANCISCO--UPI--Manager Bill Ringey .issued a distress call for relief hurlers today as the San Francisco Giants went into the closing .game of their four-game series with the Chicago Cubs. With Sam Jones, who loves to pitch in Candlestick Park, slated to toe the rubber, Rigney it hopeful that his boys can square the series at two games each. Dick Ellsworth (2-1) will pitch for the Cubs. In the meantime, Rigney is worried about hi* relief corps. The Cubs shelled four Giant hurlers for 11 safeties and nine runs last night to score a 9-1 victory.

"Maybe I'll move Stu Miller back to finishing games and try out George Maranda as a middle-innings man." When Johnny Antonelli left the game after four innings and trailing, 1-4 last night, Rigney called on Maranda, who was charged with two runs; Miller who -didn't suffer any damage; and Joe Shipley, who was shelled for three runs in the ninth. Shortstop Ernie Banks of the Cubs treated them all as if they were cousins. He homered off Antonelli in the first; he doubled off Miller in the-seventh to drive in t run charged to Maranda; and he tripled and.scored * run off Shipley in the ninth. ROOKIE CUB second baseman Jerry Kindall also h*.5 a fine night, clouting two doubles and knocking three runners across the plate. And outfielder Bob Will, who hadn't hit a major league home run in three years until Monday, got another one last night with a man on base. Meanwhile, Glen Hobbie 4-6, was scattering six Giant hits and getting some fine outfield support from Richie Ashburn, who hauled in three 400 foot smashes as he roamed far and wide.

Jordan Says Ex-Managers Robbed Him LAS VEGAS, Nev.-(»-Ex- welterweight champion Don Jordan says his two ex-managers shortchanged him in the agreement they made to part company. Jordan lost his title Friday night to Cuba's Benny Pircti Among the onlookers was ex- gambling kingpin M i c k e y Cohen, Jordan's good friend. Jordan said last night through tssociatei that he wax left pennileis. r His camp claimed Jordan was .to get $7,700 from the $85,000 purse, with co-managers Don Nesseth and Jackie McCoy receiving the rest but paying training expenses. Roy Renard, an advisor, said Jordan received only $2,000, which went for training expenses. What'i more, _ he declared, Netseth and McCoy had received an advance of $5,000 from the promoters of the fight for training expenses. He said the Jordan camp never saw that $5,000. "He's (Jordan) absolutely broke," said Renard. He said the Lag Vegas district attorney had been asked to investigate.
