For the benefit of sports writers they stepped on the scales Monday at the windup of their training grind. Brown was right on the limit -- 135 pounds. Zulueta weighed "If I'm not ready now I'll never be," Zulueta said. "This is the chance I've been waiting for." The slender Cuban holds victories over four champions but none was in a title match. Zulueta, a photography student in New York City, and Broun fought a draw at Baltimore in April 1953 in their only previous meeting. "Brown never has been sharper than he is right now," said trainer Bill Gore, who handled ex- featherweight c h a m p i o n Willie Pep for 18 yean.

If they will honor our individual letter of intent we will honor theirs. If a boy signs with us or a Southwest- Conference school it would be binding. "We have asked the Southwest Conference to be a part of the letter of intent but they have shown no interest." There has been considerable controversy in the past over Okl- homa getting Texas schoolboy athletes who had signed letters of intent with Southwest Conference schools. But Wilkinson's statement indicates that the Southwest Conference schools had rather the thing remain as it is with their being able to sign boys who had signed with Oklahoma and vice versa. Wilkinson is here playing in the TransMississippi Golf Tournament.

And to hear him tell it, practice will be about all the golfing j ke'U do for the next 10 months.' Ward withdrew from the Trans- Mississippi Monday during a turbulent day that saw the USGA inform officials it considered Ward i a professional and suggested that he be dropped from the tourna-j mfnt. : The handsome young man f r o m : San Franci.'co is under 1-year probation because his boss, Eddie Lowery, a former USGA commit- tec man, paid his expenses to golf tournaments. He had just played in the National Open at Toledo under his "application for reinstatement." I Bob Goldwater of Phoenix, Ariz, president of the Trans-Mississippi, didn't tell Ward to withdraw here, but he left it up to the two-time: amateur king, saying "we m a d e j a mistake in the first place in inviting Harvie because we did not completely understand the m e a n - ' ing of the USGA's 1-year probation ruling." i Then, when Ward withdrew [ "rather than cause any embir- Horse Sale Saturday, June 22,1957-6 p.m. We expect about 100-125 head of horses for this Auction.

Daniels, a husky 190-pound, t- foot-2-inch righthander, edged Portland's Bob Thorpe 7-3 Monday night in a 13-inning pitching duel. It was the only PCL game of the night. Probably the best birthday pres ent of the day for the big Ala baman was a booming 3-run triple in the 13th by Carlos Bernier that iced things for the Twinks. For Daniels it was his ninth triumph against two defeats, both suffered at the hands of the Vancouver Mounties. He had tripled to drive in a run that contributed to his team's lead, but he couldn't bold it and the game was tied 2-2 when the 10th inning closed. The game continued scoreless until Spook Jacobs started things in the 13th with a single, moved up on a walk and raced home when Beaver shortstop Ed Win ceniak misplayed Bill Camion's grounder. (.US) to boost his average 30 points to .333. This output enabled him to move into sixth place among the American League hitters. Skowron, a righthanded batter, drove in nine runs last week to move into second place in this department with 43. Washington's Roy Sievers has the most RBIs, 48. Iry die Big Change!
