NEWPORT TENNIS SHOCKER Aussies' Anderson Trips Richardson; Mike Green Beaten f NEWPORT, R. I., Aug. 17 WV-Ham Richardson, top-ranking U. S. amateur, was upset today by Australia's fifth-ranking MaJ Anderson in the semifinals of the Newport Invitation tennis tournament. Richardson, of Westfield, N. J., took a 6-1, 3-6, 6-0, 6-1 lacing from the young Aussie. The other American hopeful, Mike Green, of Miami, Fla. also was eliminated, losing to AltheaGibson, Louise Brough To Clash Again MANCHESTER, Mass., Aug. 17 UJ Althea Gibson of New York City and Louise Brough of Beverly Hills, Calif., today became Sunday finalists for the 30th annual Essex County Club women's tennis tournament. The top-seeded Miss Gibson, first iNegro 10 win tne Wimbledon singles crown, was forced to the limit before overcoming fourth-seeded uanene Hard of Montebello, Calif., 6-4.2-6,8-6. It was a rematch of their recent Wimbledon final, won by Miss uiDson, 6-2, 6-2. The second-seeded Miss Brnueh. champion here in 1942 and four- times former Wimbledon champion, won 6-1, 6-4 over third-seeded Mrs. Dorothy Head Knode of Forest Hills, N. Y. For the 34-year-old Miss Brough It was her first Essex final as this Essex final. She won the title over Pauline Betz in 1942, lost it to Maureen Connolly in 1952 and again last year to Shirley Fry. For the 29-year-old Miss Gibson It was her fir stEssex final as this is her first competitive appearance In New England. That factor has lured the largest Essex galleries since 1938 with all seats sold out for the final three days. The Brough-Knode duel proved relatively routine, but Miss Brough left the impression that she was playing the best she has in at least three years, an opinion she confirmed later. DARING MATCH In contrast, the Gibson-Hard fight was exactly that a fight all the way. The two played daring, slugging tennis and the suspense held until the final point when Miss Hard lobbed barely over the deep baseline for a 2-4 break against her booming but erratic service. The 21-year-old Miss Hard, much shorter and stronger than the 5-11 Miss Gibson, had many opportunities to win the first set. It finished with three successive service breaks, the 10th and last game being a 2-4 break against Miss Hard's service that included two double faults. The second set was a parade for Miss Hard as Miss Gibson's service was crushed in the first, third and fifth games, with Miss Gibson winning one point out of 13 in the three games. Suspense mounted In the third set with four service breaks, two for each, from the fourth through the eighth games. Miss Gibson took the lead at 3-2, lost it at 4-3, then won it back at 5-4, all on service breaks. They carried service from there through three deuced games to square the match at 6-6. Miss Gibson then carried at 4-1 in the 13th game to lead 7-6 in games. The 14th game proved the downfall for Miss Hard. She won the first point, lost the next three, fought back one match point with a perfect overhead then lost to her own over-deep lob. Fangio Wins Pole Position, Eclipses Three Lap-Marks PESCARA, Italy, Aug. 17 Oft-World driving champion Juan Manuel Fangio of Argentina bettered the Pescara track lap record three tunes today as he won top starting position for Sunday's Grand Prix auto race. Fangio, driving a Masterati, recorded speeds of 103.95, 95.46 and 92.9 mph over, the 15-mile course. The track standard is 89.2 mph set in 1933 by Tazio Nuvolari. Fangio's marks will not become official since they were set during trials. Two Americans, Harry Schell and Masten Gregory, were among seven other drivers who also bettered Nuvolari's mark. Both drove Maserati's. Fangio's first mark of 92.9 was bettered later by Sterling Moss, of England in a Vanwall and Italy's Luigi Musso in a Ferrari. Fangio climbed in his Maserati again and turned in his 95.46 mph mark to keep his No. 1 position. Later, he toured the course for his 103.95 mph mark. 4 Vie For Pony Title; NN, Hamptonln Ist-RoundWins Newport News and Hampton won their first-round games in the Penin-sula Pony League tournament yesterday on the Warwick Pony diamond. Newport News defeated Warwick, 7-4, and Hampton blanked Newmarket, 9-0. The two losers will meet Tuesday at 3 p.m., while Newport News and Hampton play at the same time of these two games will play for the title. Yesterday, Howard Hall picked up two singles for Warwick, but it was not enough as Newport News cut ,tho game on ice in the first inning with six runs. Highlighting the uprising were singles by Wendell Williamson and Horace Underwood and a bombing triple by Bobby Helmer. Catcher Bobby Ball virtually won the-fame in the first inning of the second game when the Hampton slugger belted a two-run home run Britain s, Mike Da vies 7-5, 6-4, 6-2. The first of all foreign singles final since Aussies Frank Sedgman and Ken McGregor batttled in 1952 is set for tomorrow, Richardson ran into a series of accurate baseline and net shots, a fireball service and cat-like court coverage. Anderson had the former Rhodes scholar shaking his head. Anderson snatched the service from Richardson in the second game of the first set and never let up. Richardson took advantage of Anderson's momentary, service lapse in the second set to square the match. Green was stubborn in the first set. He kept Davies at bay until the Englishman managed the first service breakthrough in the 12th game. Green came closest to ex tending him in the ninth game of the second set when he had a 15-40 advantage, but lost it as Davies came on with five straight points That was a dying .gasp for the Miamian as Davies snared his service on the next set and quiet ly eliminated him in the third set to become the first non-seed to gain the finals since Harry Likas in 1948. Likas, lost to Bill Trabert in the final. Ashley Cooper of Australia and Whitney Reed of Alameda, Calif. reached the doubles finals along with Bob Wilson and Mike Davies of England. Cooper and Reed stopped Australians bod Mars ana Roy Emerson 6-4, 6-2, 6-2. Wilson and Davies defeated Aus sies Neale Fraser and Anderson 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 6-1. Richardsons trouncing at the hands of young Anderson was a severe blow to the United States' hopes in the Davis Cup challenge round. Despite the loss of Lew Hoad, who joined the Jack Kramer nro troupe after winning the Wim bledon title, Australia still is considered tough to beat and Richardson is the most consistent of the U. S. netters-. Strange, Ball Head Eastern Golf After 36 Continued From Page C-l Portsmouth with 73-73146, while deadlocked with Brown for sixth place with 149's are Dave Pond of Portsmouth and Larry Hurst ot Oceana. Sfranop. a 2fi-vear-old straieht- down-the-middle artist, seemed to be on his wav to a solid par round until the last two holes. Missed putts of five feet on the 17th and seven feet on the 18th produced the bogies and sent him over par by two strokes. He opened up with five successive pars and then he got the gallery of 75 or so really buzzing with a birdie three on the 340-yard seventh. A sweet nine-iron shot was punched to within two inches of the cup for a gimme birdie. He averted disaster on the par- four eighth when a four-foot putt for par eased to the hp of the cup, stopped cold and then teetered into the hole, causing the thin-featured machine company salesman to point skyward and volunteer the information that "He smiled on me that time." His putter went sour for the first time on the next hole where his 160-yard tee shot landed on the green's fringe and he putted eight feet past the pin, missing the return shot to take a bogey for a nine-hole 35. A succession of mid-dle-of-the-fairway pars brought him safely to the 17th, but the slight collapse there was nothing serious. Ball, meanwhile, who had equal led par with his Cavalier teammate, Buzzy Outten of Portsmouth on Fri day, was moving' along with a minimum of trouble for a pair of36's. Outten, however, hurled completely out ot contention with a horrendous 80 for a 150 total. Spencer, who since Thursday, has been insisting "I can't sink the short putts, stated solemnly after canning a 10-tooter for par on the 18th. I'll get at least one good round to morrow that's a promise." Possum Jones Wins FAYETTEVILLE, N. C, Aug. 17 W) Possum Jones of Tampa, Fla., stood off a late rush by Curtis Turner of Roanoke, Va., tonight to capture the 150-lap NASCAR convertible feature' at the Champion Speedway. driving in Donnie White ahead of him. Ball also had a double and single and three runs batted in. Teammate Bobby Worthington picked up a pair of doubles and batted in one run. Bob Hunley and Wayne Kanoy each had doubles for the victors. The Warwick Pony League field is located near Mariners Museum on Route 60. Jimmy Barefoot rapped a double for Newmarket, which" managed to collect only four hits off Tommy Staples. - Warwick 010 010 4 S 4 Newport News 010 000 7 8 1 Gayle Rauch.

Sutton Jr. stymied the big bats of Delta- ville on four hits here tonight to give Gloucester an- easy 1 1-0 Tidewater League victory. The Dukes, meanwhile, exploded against Charlie Revere and Bill Davies for 14 safeties and scored in every inning but the second and fifth. Norman Jenkins and Harold Smith were the big guns in the Gloucester attack, each collecting three hits including a bases-empty home run. Johnny Hogge also rap ped out three singles for the winners. For the losers, John Langford was the leading hitter with a pair cf one-baggers. Sutton, despite his easy triumph, fanned only two and walked six. The victory gave sixth-place Glou cester a three-game bulge over the cellar-dwelling Deltaville team. Gloucester is 8-12 on the season with Deltaville now 5-15. The schedule tomorrow (Sunday) sends Deltaville to Gloucester for a 2:30 p. m. contest. Other games on the Sunday Tidewater League schedule are West Point's visit to Charles City and James City's irek to Poquoson to take on. the Islanders.

Sheppard shot a two-under-par 68 for a 54-hole total of 201, two strokes better than the veteran Sarazen who had a one over 71. Sheppard, 51, shot brilliant golf with four straight birdies on the back nine and missed a chance to go even further ahead with a double bogie on the 17th. Sarazen, 55-year-old two-time U. S. Open champion, got fine distance with his drives bu was having trouble on the greens and lost his lead for the first time since the 72-hole tourney started Thursday.

DAILY PRESS, Newport News 'Warwick Hampton, Sunday, Hoop Band 1st In Arch Ward Memorial Run CHICAGO, Aug. 17 UP) Hoop Band, a 13-1 shot, zoomed to the front at the head of the stretch and barreled to a 4' length vic tory under jockey John Heckmann today in winning the $57,450 Arch Ward Memorial Handicap at Washington Park. The 4-year - old bay gelding, owned by Mrs. Ada L. Rice, Chicago, matched the track record for 1 3-16 miles on the turf of 1:54 3-5. The mark was set by Swaps in 1955. The even money favorite, John Zitnik's Manassas, was second in a photo finish with D. E. Love man s Sunningdale. Festin was fourth in the field of 12. The defeat was Manassas first in six starts on the turf this sea son.; It was Hoop Band s fifth tn- umph in 16 outings and was worth $34,400 to boost his earnings for the year to $72,500. His lifetime winnings stand at $114,360. Hoop Band paid $28, $8.60 and $5.40 to supporters in a crowd of 25,461. Manassas, beating out Sun- nmsdale by a nose for second, re turned $3.40 and $2.80. Sunning dale s price was $4.40. Festin. owned by Kenneth V. McMillan and T. C. Dante of Los Angeles, set the early pace with Lucky ' Stable's Sam Slick and Jacnot Stable's Ei Zatibi, keeping close behind. At the head of the stretch, Heckmann put Hoop Band in front by three lengths. At the one-eighth pole he was merely galloping with about a five-length lead. "Hoop Band was a running fool today," said Heckmann. "He was crying to run at every stage, so rather than restrain him and get pinched somewhere, I decided to let him go out and run his business. He opened up coming into the stretch and was going just as strongly at the end." The others finished in this order: Dotted Line; Bryn; his Hasty House stablemate, Mahan, winner of last year's Arch Ward Memorial; Spinney; Sam Slick; Clermont; El Zahbi; and Negrotrece. Jockey Charles Burr, aboard Manassas, said "there are no excuses to day. Manassas did his best. The total handle for the nine-race day was $2,037,356.
