2B The Pensacola News Tuesdoy, February 22, 1966 Robert Wilke in Celebrity Pro-Am n sanest Mail7 C 01111119 tO trOnSQCOIQ Because he has played vil-lians in 90 per cent of his movie and television roles, Robert Wilke says he's known as the meanest man in town. Ana tne "mean man comes to town March 2 when he will play in the Celebrity Pro-Am prelude to the $65,000 Pensacola Open golf tournament scheduled March 3-6 at Pensacola Country Club. Wilke gets to even the scales, however, in his newest and meatiest role, that of Marshal Sam Corbett in television's new "The Legend of Jesse James" series. But, in real life, Wilke is real Iy a very good guy and one who probably has helped raise more money for charity than almost any man in Hollywood. He does it by entering and winning virtually every known charity golf tournament. He's rated as the film town's top amateur golfer and is never too busy to swing his clubs, along with other movie greats like Jim Garner (who'll also play in the pro-am here), Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Gary Morton, Robert Sterling and Bob Hope, to raise money for needed causes. A big, deliberate and thoughtful man, Wilke was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. After a year in college he became too restless to remain in school and began searching for a more active life. He found it by entering a swimming show at the Chicago World's Fair in 1934, and followed this with swimming and diving exhibitions in Florida. Wilke arrived in Hollywood, strictly on a hunch, in 1937. His first job was as a stunt man in the big film of that era, "San Francisco," which starred Clark Gable, Jeanette MacDo-nald and Spencer Tracy. "My first acting break," he recalled, "was in 'High Noon, when I was shot m the back by Grace Kelly. Since then, I've been shot, knifed and otherwise done in by all of the top stars in ft H mJ - 2720 N. PALAFOX ST. the business. "People seem to forget that I haven't always played the villain, but up until now, those have been my strongest roles." Among Wilke's feature film Russell Is Top Ail-American (CONTINUED FROM PA6S IB) was fourth. Lee, the other forward, is a steady scorer (22.8) and also is one of the best rebounders among the collegians (15.6) He could have a higher scoring average, but as his coach, Roy Skinner, explains, "Clyde is the most unselfish player I've ever seen." " The center, Walt Wesley, is 6-11 and came to Kansas via Fort Myers, Fla. He wears No. 13 just like Wilt Chamberlain when Wilt was at Kansas. As a scorer, however, he's not ouite as prolific, but 21.2 is good enough to have the Jay-hawks challenging in. the Big Eight. Russell's running-mate in the backcourt is the 6-3 Bing, a 30.3 scorer for Syracuse. "Bing is the finest I have seen this year. I have to rate him with Cazzie Russell," says Eob Feerick, the general manager of the San Francisco Warriors. The rest of the league thinks so, too. The leading vote getter on the second team was Jim Walker of Providence. Like Guokas," he is only a junior and is one of the most deceptive guards in basketbalL Walker is averaging 25.8 points per game. Guokas' forte remains bis floor game. Not a great scorer (17.6) compared to some of the other All-Americans, he is probably the best passer in college ball today. Hudson's choice was another surprise because the Minnesota forward has missed seven games this season with a broken wrist. He played with a cast, however, and still managed to keep his scoring average at a respectable 17.7. Snyder, who was lost in Fred Hetzel's shadow at Davidson last season, has been among the top five scorers in the country all season (29.3) And Henry Finkcl, with a 21.7 average, and a 6-11 frame, is the key to the successful season Dayton has had this season. MOBILE HWY. AT THI CIRCLE and DAVIS HWY. AT BRINT UNI credits are "Man of the West," "Shock Treatment", "Night Passage," "Written . on the Wind," "The Far Country," "The HaUalujah Trail," "Fate is the Hunter" and "Morituri." He also has appeared on vir tually every major Hollywood adventure TV series, including "Bonanza", "My Three Sons", "Route 66", "Gomer Pyle", "Outer Limits", "Wagon Train", "Ben Casev", "Gun-smoke", "Alfred Hitchcock",; 'Combat", "The Fugitive",! "Perry Mason", "Kraft Suspense Theatre" and "The Virginian". In golf, he's won the World Entertainment Championship three times (in 1960, '63 and '64) and the March Air Base Celebrity tournament. Pensacola area golfing enthusiasts will have a chance to see him in action at PCC March 2 when he will be making one of his rare golf tournament appearances for other than a strictly charity-type event.

(Ptnucol NtwvAP Wirtphoto) Spring Training Two Days Away Atlanta's 'Big Five' Pitchers Still Unsigned for '66 Season ATLANTA (AP) - The Big Five of the Atlanta Braves' pitching staff wa3 still unsigned today with the start of spring training only two days off. Four of the Braves' starters and the top relief pitcher could be holdouts when the mound staff begins workouts Thursday at west Palm Beach, Ha. Still unsigned for 19fi6 are Tony Cloninger, Ken Johnson, Wade Elasingame and Denny Lemastcr, counted on for start ing assignments, and bullpen ace Billy O'Dcll. The five pitchers won a total of 73 games in the National League last year when the Braves played at Milwaukee. Manager Bobby Bragan has said that all will have to come through with big seasons to give the Braves a shot at the pennant this year. John McIIale, president and general manager of the Braves, is more concerned right now about getting their Celtics Bounce Back To Defeat Lakers rV - -f cr3 I WHEEL ALIGllfJEllT ; I Trorrri If factory IS 7 By THE ASSOatTED Prcsi The Boston Celtics came back to win, but fce PhHadclphia im got "fouled up" and failed to kcrp pace with the Celtics in the National Ea:kctball Association's Eastern Division race.

"I'm going to talk to all of them by telephone again Tuesday," McIIale said. "I think maybe a couple of them are about ready to sign, but I doni want to name them until they do." Cloninger, the Braves' biggest winner since Warren Spahn, is not one of those who may be ready to give in on salary talks, "I have talked to Tony twice, and we just haven t agreed yet," McIIale said of the 25- year-old right-hander who obviously is after a generous pay raise after his performance last summer. Cloninger won 19 games and lost 14 in 1964, and last year posted a 24-11 record. Cloninger, paid about $25,000 for his pitching chores a year ago, probably figures h ought to rank now in the super-star class alon? , with the Craves sluggers, Henry Aaron, Eddie Mathews and Joe Torre. Bragan already has siad that Cloninger will pitch the Braves' opener in Atlanta April 12 against Pittsburgh when big league baseball makes its debut in the South. Lemastcr, a left-hander, had i an on season last summer when he won seven games and lost 13, The bard-throwing veteran won 17 games and lost 11 in 1X4, and Bragan is counting on a come- ,back to bolster the Braves this iyear.
