5TH ED, 3RD ED. Flag Bound Bucs Trounce Phils, 7 -1 WEDNESDAY MORNING. SEPTEMBER 21, 1960 MattfirrT, (Kmifmtt With Malice Toward None By BILL LEE Sports Editor DEANE BEMAN IN THE NATIONAL Amateur at Brookline three years ago, Owen Griffith and myself were keenly disappointed when Don Hoenig lost his second round match to a man of no particular reputation. Hoenig had beaten Joe Carr, the Irishman who had won. the British Amateur, the day before and when he was drawn against a boyish young fellow named Deane Beman from the Washington, D. C. area, the unknowing among us considered our man Hoenig to be practically in the third round. For quite a while it was Hoenig's match. Well after the turn. the Connecticut man had a 3- hole lead, but near the end it began to slip away from him. Beman kept getting pars and, if I remember correctly, he threw in a birdie or two as well. In any event, he was readv to take instant advantage of the mistakes Hoenig made and, ultimately caught his man on the eighteenth to square the match. On the second extra hole, Beman won the match. The name meant little to us at the time. We checked, of course, and found out the nervy little guy was no lucky chopper but had built up considerable reputation in Washington and Baltimore tournaments. Deane Bcman's name has meant a great deal more to evcry golf writer in the country in the three seasons that have elapsed since he drummed Don Hoenig to the sidelines at The Country Club outside Boston. He won the British Amateur in 1939 and last week added the United States Amateur to his conquests. ' BEMAN BELONGS WITH THE ELITE Now there is not the slightest doubt concerning the stature of Deane Beman in competitive amateur golf. Only a handful of great players have won both the British and United States amateur championships and in the last decade only Harvey Ward won championships on both sides of the Atlantic within a period of three years. Dick Chapman, for example, waited II years after winning the American title at Winged Foot before gaining his first British Amateur. Harvey Ward won the honors in Great Britain in 1952 before winning the U. S. championship in 1955 and 1956. Willie Turnesa got the double a year apart, winning the British in 1947 and the American a vcar later. Lawson Little did the most imposing job in the competitions on both sides of the ocean, win-i ning both British and American championships successively in 1934 and 1933. Curiously, Bob Jones won only one British Amateur, which was in 1930. the year he rounded out his marvelous grand slam by winning the American amateur title after returning from England with the two British crowns of that year in his possession. PALMER DIDN'T STAY LONG American amateur golf at a national level has fallen on evil days, not because there aren't just as many fine players but because most of the good ones are in a rush to turn pro. Certainly Gene Littler, Arnold Palmer, Charles Coe. Harvey Ward, Jack Nicklaus and Deane Beman compare favorably with any. of the fine amateur champions of earlier years. Players like Chick Evans, Francis Ouimet, Bob Jones and Lawson Little do not come along every four years or anything like that, but the amateur champions of recent time are certainly as good as those who held the title in the last 25 years. ' Arnold Palmer won the United States Amateur in 1954 and promptly turned pro. Now he is just about the best golfer in the world. Gene Littler won it the year before Palmer did and now is one of the big money winners of the tour. Gene would have lost his amateur standing at Las Vegas even if he hadn't won a quarter anywhere else. Sammy Urzetta and Billy Maxwell arc other National Amateur champions who quickly turned to the game as a means of earning a livelihood. Perhaps Deane Beman will remain an amateur a while, long with Jack Nicklaus. the fine player who won the 1959 championship. These boys could undoubtedly do well on the tour in time, but they must both realize that the professional woods are full of so many consistently low scoring players that it takes a touch of genius to make a decent living. Ole Miss Early Leader In Liikenhous Ratings By DR. E. E. LITKENHOUS Mississippi gave early indications of living up to pro-season high ranking when the Rebels flogged Houston 52-0 in their opener. That easy win projected the Kebs into first place in this week's Litkenhous Difference By - Score Ratings. Ole Miss latched onto first with a figure of 113.8. That was 9.4 points better than Washington which downed Stanford to claim second. Another S.E.C. giant. Louisiana State, took over third at 102.1 after downing Texas A. & M. 9-0. These are the only teams to break the century barrier. Alabama, a 21-6 winner over Georgia, is fourth at 99.1 while Georgia Tech. 23-13 conqueror of Kentucky is tied for fifth at 97.8. The Wreck shares the spot with Kansas, who dropped Texas Christian 21-7. Missouri made a 20-0 decision over Southern Metho- jdist payoff in a seventh spot at 95.7. Texas, upset by Nebraska 14-13. is eighth, while Arkansas. 9-0 master of Oklahoma State is ninth at 94.6. Penn State, which defeated Boston 20-0. rounds out the top ten at 93.4. You can expect some changes among the leaders next week when the Big Ten and "the other major schools go into action. Net Pros Plan Own Davis Cup LONDON tS-Jack Kramer and his professional tennis stars Tuesday announced thier own version of the .Davis Cup a zonal com petition for professionals only. It will start next year with teams from South America, North! America, Europe and Australia. The players will be paid onlyi their expenses. , Officially the new competition is to help the funds of the newly formed Professional Tennis Play ers' Assn. But it aDpcared that Kramer, after skimming much of the cream from European amateur ranks, is making a new move to challenge the supremacy of the amateur came. He suffered a sharp set back last July when the International Tennis Federation threw out a plan for open tournaments. It seemed all but settled that his professionals would be playing at Wimbledon and other big intern: tional events next year, alongside amateur stars. Several countries were believed to have voted against open tournaments becuase they might af fect the Davis Cup. limited by its constitution to amateurs. Since the open tournament plan fell through, Kramer has been going around with an open check book. He's signed Andres Gimeno of Spain, Kurt Nielsen of Den mark. Robert Haillet of France and Mike Davies of Britain in a bid to give his troupe a more in ternational appeal. Italy's Nicola Pietrangeli is re ported all ready to follow as soon as Italv is out of the Davis Cup. Kramer threw a press luncheon today toannounce the new cup. Tony Trabert, American tennis star and vice president of the Professionals' Assn., gave out the details-. "We're calling it the Kramer Cup." Trabert said. "We realize the use of Jack's name will cause resentment and conflict among certain people throughout the world. But after all these petty jealousies are over in the next five or ten years, we think it would be a pity not to have his name on the cup." Trabert said that although the new competition will start with four zonal teams, these might be broken down into national teams later if more professionals are available. And it might be open to amateurs if open tournaments are accepted. Kramer hinted that his circus, which now has 16 players, may expand further. j "There is a possibility we may be talking with other players who are at present engaged in amateur tennis." he said eagily. But he wouldn't name any stars he had in mind for signing up. In recent months, American stars Earl f Butch) Buchholz and Barry MacKay and Mexican Rafael Osuna have all been men tioned as likely Kramer recruits.

He lost a shutout when rookie third baseman J.m Woods opened Philadelphia's eighth with a home run, his first in the majors.

The Attorney General called Harmon's motion "a great step forward, worthy of a great sport." Lefkowitz said the Metropolitan PGA action resulted from an in-investigation by the civil rights bureau of his office, headed by Mrs. Shirley Adelson Siegel. He said the inquiry, which has beei underway for several months, will continue. Eli quarterback.
