WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINV MIDDLE MAN AMEStCA CENTER IN 22.5 LB. SOB ro PLAY A AT PIVOT SEEM A GUARD FOS TWO Tatum Likes Terps, 'Devils In'AC.C Gridiron Campaign S.C., Clemson Could Take Title in Wide Open Battle Seventh of a series By JIM TATUM Head Coach, Maryland COLLEGE PARK, Md. — (NBA) — After 32 days out of the country, in the Far* East and Alaska with the Armed Forces dtr '.g July, I took a quick' look around the Atlantic Coast Conxirence — and then felt like heading for outer spaces again. I know that Virginia and North Carolina State will be much stronger than they were last year. Still, among our great teams of Duke, Maryland, South Carolina and Clemson Sies the conference champion. Leaving my own Maryland squad out of the picture, I would say that Duke shapes up strongest, with South Carolina or Clemson next, and my vote leaning to the Gamecocks. You can't find three greater quarterbacks than our conference can present in my own boy, Frank Tamburello at Maryland, Don King of Clemson and Mackie Prickett of SouUi Carolina. I can't get too perturbed about Duke's personnel—but only because we don't play them this year. The Blue Devils, Orange Bowl winners, ironically play Uie winners of the three other major bowls last January—Ohio State. Georgia Tech and Navy. To do the job they feature a good running back in Bob Pascal, kocky in Best Shape tor fight; Will Start Fast GROSS1NGER, N. Y. (AP) — Heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano, not a man to bandy words around like he handles his sarrping partners, allowed today as how he is in the best shape of his career. Therefore, he said before entering (he ring for 9 three-round!

"I feel as though everything is working out perfectly for this tight." said the champion. "I feel better than ever before. Sometimes, for other fights I wouldn't BEight Gomes Left on Slate feel just right but things would work out all' right anyhow. "I plan to start real fast. Not like the first fight I had with Ezznrd Charles when I didn't get untrncked until the sixth, not like the Don Cockell fight when I took much too long to get going. I'm going to do the equivalent of five rounds of boxing in the stadium dressing room before the bell." Impressed By Moore The Rock said he wouldn't be at all surprised if Moore tried for an enrly knockout because he is supposed to be a slow starter. "But that doesn't worry me." said Marcinno. "I've only seen him four times. I saw him on television twice against Joey Mnxim and once against Bobo Olson. And we have the film of his fight with Harold Johnson last year. But I didn't learn anything from that because Johnson and I don't fight anything alike. "I was Impressed with Moore in two of them—against Maxim in Florida and against Olson. He comes closest to Walcott in style and punching power. Charles is i better boxer and more clever. Bu Moore knows all the punches and how to use them. From what I've seen he has the best left jab since Joe Louis. " Shawnee High School has eight games remaining on iu grid schedule following last week's opening contest with Keiser.

South Carolina has lots of fine backs in addition to Prickett. Carl Brazell and Mike Caskey ruined Army last year. They have some reorganization problems in the Hue, but walch their offense go. Clemson's a club to watch—well- seasoned with an inspirational leader in King, a brilliant halfback in Joel Wells and a tough, experienced line. The Tigers are ready to come back to the winning ranks. Virginia has a young sophomore fullback who may be the big boom of 1955. He's Jim Bakhtiar, a boy straight from Iran who travels well with a ball under his arm. And has 205 pounds to help him get there- The Cavaliers have a fine guard, John Polzer, to clear the way for him. My own alma mammy, North Carolina, is. a dark horse in the conference. We know Ed Sutton has great possibilities as a halfback, and end Will Prye is an experienced hand at catching passes. The Tar Heels boom George Stavnitski as a lop notch center. As long as there's a Bob Bartholomew in the, line and a Nick Consoles directing the bnckfield, Wake Forest must be reckoned with. Likewise, North Carolina State is on the upgrade, with a slippy halfback, Oeorge Marinkov, helping the Wolfpack climb. Eddie West is ao experienced quarterback to manipulate Earle Edwards' multiple offense. At Maryland we look for outstanding performances from Tamburello; Bob Pellegrini, a boy we've converated from guard to center and has been mentioned prominently for All-America, and ends Bill Walker and Russell Dennis. I don't believe there will be any guard in the Conference better than Jack Davis. We're not pessimistic. NEXT: Notre Dame and the independents. Favorites Lead Golf Tourney By HUGH FULLERTON JR. RICHMOND Va (AP) — The 55th National Amateur Golf Championship is just as unpredictable as its'predecessors, but it's a fairly safe guess that when the finalists walk to the first tee Saturday one will cffine from the group of pre-tournament favorites. s ! Saturday > There's a chance too that by that time he'll be as grey-haired from narrow escapes as the forty- ifh oldsters who make up the bulk of the 64-man field that survived the first two rounds. Going into today's double-tnock- out third and fourth rounds, most of the favorites still were on hand. Some, like Harvie Ward, tabbed by hi? rivals as the world's best amateur golfer, almost had the daylights scared out of them, but they von. But perhaps the most noticeable feature of the remaining field was the predominance of players in the over-40 and 20-or-under age brackets. At least a dozen of the 64 survivors confessed to the over 40 age and a lot if others were close to that figure. Experience Paym Off Perhaps the story was that only steady, experienced oldsters could cope with the tricky greens and the disturbing winds on the. 6,713- yard James River course of the Country Club of Virginia. i The in-betweens included the! 29-year-old Ward; Joe Conrad, a; sprightly 25-year-old Air Force j lieutenant; 31-year-old J i m m >'j Jackson and 32-yeer-old Captain; Bill-Campbell from the U.S. Walk-i er Cup learn; ana Hillman Roberts, 23, the sectional qualifying medal- ist and an impressive winner yesterday. Then there were ex-champions Ted Bishop* and Willie Turnesa, who are flirting with the older age group, and Jimmy McHale, 39- year-old former Walker Cupper. They're scattered through the draw so at least one of them stands a good chance of going all the way.; Another oldster, Ray Palmer of Wyandotte. Mich., earned a prominent place in the tournament annals even though he went out in the second round. The tail, 42-year-old manufacturer who went to the amateur semifinals two years ago, stayed on top of Ward all (he way, missed a chance to beat him with a short ^cond shot and a weak chip at the 18th and finally lost out on the 19th, where Harvie canned tremendous 25-foot pressure putt. Turnesa, known as "Willie the Wedge," used his favorite club to effect a similar exciting finish. He out of a trap to beat Bob Sweeny, runner-up to Arnold Palmer in last year's tourney and British amateur titleholder in 1937, on the 19th hole. Sweeny was one of the few "name" players eliminated in the second round. Others were former champion Chick Evans, who now plays just for fun, ex-British cham- BETWEEN WU NME by Postscript to Johnny Antonelli's one-day walkout: as his late summer losses mounted, the young southpaw muttered more than once, "I'll just quit pitching before I lose 20 games in one season." . . .
