The Wolfpack', which dropped from second to third in The Associated Press poll when Ben May Be Man To Lick By PETE ELDRED PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — It looks as if bantam Ben Hogan may be the man to beat in Bing Crosby's National Pro-Amateur Tournament, despite his smiling insistence that he is strictly-for-fun golfer these days. The Texas master says there will be no more grim battling for sub-par scores, but his surprising practice rounds here, casual a? they appear, are causing spectators to wonder. His 5-under-par 67 yesterday and the even fancier 65 he shot the day before have moved him right up alongside Lloyd Mangrum, winner of the Los Angeles Open, and.Dr Cary Mlddlecoff as favorites. Middlecoff won the pro event here last year. Ben was smiling happily as he finished his round with Crosby at dusk yesterday. And sun-tanned Bing, not bothered in the least by his pedestrian 82, was actually whistling as Hogan ran down the final nine-foot putt. Fans Perplexed Spectators can't. quite figure what goes with Hogan. They concede he isn't deliberately hiding in the weeds, for he made little or no preparations for the competition starting today. And he certainly hasn't tried to pull his punches. His shots have been true and his putts have been dropping, which observers say may be a tipoff on the "new Hogan,' who Is obviously playing a very relaxed game. Actually, he.appears to be in f»r tetter shape physically than when he put out everything he had last year In the National Open at Lakeside, San Francisco, and still found it wasn't enough to beat Jack Fleck, the Des Moines Hash, he Is 15 pound* heavier, -\ Starting this morning, 284 golfers tee off In the 115,000 pro-amateur.

He tied the Olympic record for the 100-meter spring (:10.3) in 1948 and the 110-meter hurdles <:13.1) in 1952. Two other Olympic record men, Horace Ashenfelter in the two-mile and the Rev. Bob Richards in the pole vault, are overwhelming vorites in their specialties. However, three of the vaulting parson's competitors have hit 15 feet or been very close. Don Bragg of Villanova did 15-1 for the Intercollegiate championship outdoors. t>on Laz, ex-Illinois, and Jerry Welbourn, ex-Ohio State, are familiar foes to Richards. With the wlthdrawl of Wes Santee yesterday from the mile run because his Injured leg still bothered him, the race shapes up as. a tighl struggle. Lt. Len' Truex and Joe LaPierre are veteran campaigners. Notre Dame's BUI Squires and Tufts' John Fawcett are newcomers. However, the chief contenders may well be Ireland's Ron Delaney a student at Villanova, and Joe Deady, former Georgetown ace who shifted from the 1,000-yard event to the mile to complete the field when Santee dropped out Deady set the world's indoor three quarter mile mark a week ago in New York at 3:01.2.
