UPI Board Predicts Yankees, Dodgers To Capture Pennants Scribe Selecfs Sir Gay/ord In Derby I!y OSCAR FRALEV I'niteii Press International FORT LAUDERDALE, Fia. i UPI i -- Fearless Fraley's fare well reflections at the end of Florida safari: Sir Gaylord will win the Ken- lucky Derby if his ankle heals in time for a couple of warmup races. 1 know a guy who thinks it's prcnt unf: to slip a baby alligator in your swimming pool. And he considers one under three feel a "baby." One "friend" is out to get even w i t h a barracuda, live. Freddie Ilutchinson of the Reds acts like he can't believe yet that last year really happened. Particularly October. I'll take Sam Snead over Ben Hogan in their hcad-to-head so ries. which has to be one of the most widely-wagered events of the year. Catch a s"mwk and you're hooked on that kind of fishing for life. I got to think that this is the year the Dodgers make it. And (yawn) the Yankees. I still think an owner should have to announce if it isn't 'shooting" all out with his horse. Too many of them dog it with :heir dogs until the spot and the price are right, meanwhile burning up the suckers' money. It comes out like four-footed wrestling. Guys who wear the collars of their sports shirts turned up make ne feel a little queasy. The greatest hurdles the trot- :ing hopefuls have to clear to gel legal in Florida are the jai alai and dog track operators shootiy; at the same night-time betting buck. It beats me how football-wacky Ohio comes up with such a basketball lock. Golf's newest betting dodge is to give a guy a stroke a hole, Sut he has to win every hole. Halve one and he loses. Trojans Honor Leading Scorer LOS ANGELES (UPI) - John 1 Rudomelkin, the greatest scorer in University of Southern California history, won the top honor Wednesday night at USC's annua basketball banquet. The G-foot-6 senior from Santa Maria, Calif., became the firs player in Trojan history to wii the Sam Barry most valuabli player award all three varsity seasons. Rudometkin, a third-team all America and repeat winner of the Big Five scoring championship also was given special recognition as the all-time Trojan scoring leader with a career record o 1,480 points. ball L , Arguing with immature players embarrasses me. Aflcr all, I've been privileged o know real pros like Joe DiMaggio. When you see Arnold Palmer crunch a drive you feel that the )all has to wind up lop-sided. Angel Marias Is LOS ANGELES OIPD -- The Los Angeles Angels Wednesday signed real live angel--Angel Macias- and if the 17-year-old pitcher'; perfect game in the 1957 Little reague World Series is any indication, he can probably hurl the lorschide through his halo.

SPORTS HUMUUWT STANDAKOHmrsday, April 5, 1962, P. 24 Than 100 In Tourney AUGUSTA, Ga. (UPI) -- The largest field in Masters history Bill Hyndman. went out after golf's biggest jackpot of the year today and the betting was that Arnold Palmer, although not as sharp as usual, will grab the lion's share when the firing winds up Sunday. A field of more than 100 golfers starts play in the annual spring classic at 9:15 a.m. EST for the first of four 18 hole rounds. And despite the scram- aling he had done in practice rounds it generally was agreed that 32-year-old Palmer definitely was the player to beat. The feeling was that once the firing starts Palmer would rise to Lhe occasion as he has so many times in the past and get back on the game which has made him ^olfing's golden boy since he :urned professional back in 1954 ond pocketed total money winnings of $278,738.09. No other golfer has come close to picking up that much cash in that six-year span. A two-time Masters winner, Pal- dt 5-1. Defending champion Gary Player, the only foreign player ever to win the Masters, was h'st- ed at 7-1. Palmer, who appeared to have his third Masters title all wrapped up a year ago when he needed only a par four on the relatively simple 420-yard final hole only to soar to a double bogey six, is due to tee off at 12:58 p.m., playing with Mike Souchak and amateur Because of the large field, the with two pros. Rich Purse players will tee off in groups of training this spring in either the three with an amateur playing South or West. The experts add, incidentally, the Yankees will also win the World Series. The Yankees were an overwhelming choice to win the American League pennant but no fewer than six teams received first- place votes in the National Nicklaus, Sanders and amateur Billy Joe Patton, who almost won the Masters in 1954, go off at 12:30 p.m. Player, Ken Venturi and Charley Coe. the Oklahoma League and the Dodgers' final point-edge over the Giants was amateur who tied with Palmer for second place last year, start play at 11:26 a.m. Two old timers -- Sam Snead, three-time Masters king, and Ben Hogan, who lias won it twice-were listed at 15-1 in the betting. Snead, who is off his game, wil Open champion, and amateur H. Dudley Wysong Jr., at 11:06 a.m. Gene Littler and former U.S. Although the prize money for this 26th Masters tourney has not rncr refused to speculate on his becn sct , it j s 5ure to exceed the total purse of ?99,500 which was paid out last year when Player picked up the big first place check for $20,000. Ray York Rides Four Winners SAN BRUNO (UPD-Ray York, iiottest rider of the current Tan- driving and putting were coming foran meeting, booted home, four more winners Wednesday to raise his total to 24 in 17 racing days.
