The two-slroke penalty slapped on Babe Zaharias out in Seattle because someone had fouled up her scorecard and she had innocently signed it was all out of proportion. She was the one who called their attention to the error. It was equally silly when Byron Nelson lost an Open championship because his caddy stepped on his hall. Salas Nu Surprise Why all the excitement about a Mexican, Laura Salas, winning the lightweight tide? Speaking as one who watched Ihe Baby Ammendls and Kid Panchos fight In the old days in San Alnonio. we have long been puzzled that Mexicans ilid not dominate the lighter divisions. For - lhat mailer, we cnnnot explain whv there are not more of them in the big leagues. The Yankees are in serious trouble when they have to bring Irv Noren in from centerfield to play first base and Manager Casey Stengel talks about turning Vic Saschi inlo a relief pitcher. Cleveland might win it by eight, or 10 games. Sports writers in from the Mid- ^•cst speak gloomily ol the attendance figures at their home parks. Something, they say, has become of the entertainment dollars. The family parlies of three and four, in particular, are missing.
